But unfortunately the vanity of man, which is as strong among pro feusors as among opera singers, makes it certain that this elaborate expenditure by the British govern ment for the ' entertainment of American professors of history was not without its damaging influence upon the impartial, disinterested judioial poise of the student of his 4tory. There is no nzeaner and at the same time more dangerous way of overthrowing tlie independence of a nation than by enslaving the preju dices' of the teachers of its youth, particularly the teabhers of history. A representative of The Times some year. ago, while a student at Harvard, took a course i history under a professor who as born .nder the British flag. That man gave a lecture on the Sepoy rebel lion. A more flagrant misrepresen tation, of truth would have been im possible concerning a -historical event than the version of the rebel flion given, to, that large body of dtudents by this pro-British pro fessor. He capped the climax of his apoatasy to the truth by-ttempting to justify the British practice of tying capture4 enemies over the mouths of cannon and blowing them into eternity in order that their bodies might be terribly mutilated, because a large section of the pe'ople of India at ths) time believed. that they would go .to heaven if they cogid only go unmutilated, but that ,tilation denied them a happy hereafter. And the British wanted .te make them think that they had no hereafter. This uihole subjoot of British pro paganda ought to be thoroughly in 'because, as our expand ing omrce and the in ofthe world brings b*.latw er e and closer contact with the nations of the world, we mitheld them all at arm 's lengh.

They suffer and they die by the thousands boase there -is neither food for their hunger per medicine for their sickness. Of all the cruel and abominable wickedness of the past few years, the most cruel and abominable was the blookade of medioine and sani tary supplies that could have gone to relieve the sufferings of Bussian women and children. - It is hard to see how the men r6 sponsible for these awful agonies can sleep well. Yet Uoyd Ge'orge and Millerand and Woodrow Wilson appear to be able to eat with en joyment and to slumber soundly while the cries of the innocent vic tims of their policies fill the world with a chorus of woe 'and misery and despair. Sdlving LUe'# Mysteries O NE by one the riddles of life are solved. The Congress of Eugenics (now in session) has discovered the manner ,in which nusical, literary and'artistic genius is handed down from generation to generation. It is also on the threshold of learn ing why red-haired people dislike one another and seldom marry per, aons of their own complexion, why tall men frequently chtose short mates and vice versa. SI n thtre will be no mysteries left. Theman whose wife cannot learn how to cook, or the woman whose husband takes his stenographer out to lunch, can probably have the matter made perfectly clear to them. The biologist of the future will show them charts and figures prov ing that these traits are hereditary the one inherited from a paternal -grandfather who was a pinochle gd diet, and the other from an aubt on the mother's side who had a weak ness for jazs. Let's Have a Test Vote ENATOR SMOOT announces that he will submit to theiSen, ate Finance Committee a modi fied sales tax plan, consisting of a 2 per cent impost on sales at whole sale, without repeal of nuisance taxes. He would like to do away with the nuisance taxes, but mae little imme diate prospeqt of 'that.'. If the comnmittee declines to ac cept his plan, he will proposeeit on the flook' of the Senate for a test vote, " with a view .to working for the adoption of the' sales tax ks the principal source of revenue later on." By at means, letiens have the test vote and have it soon. To make the test more effective, Senafor Smoot might add a proviso that the proceeds of his tax should be applied to making the first pay ments of the promised bonus to veterans. With but few exceptions the Sena ton who recently voted to tatble the bonus promised to support it later.' Let the ooipntry be shown whether this was a false promise or not. The sales tax would probabily prove, upon trial, the best chief basis of rrasng needed revenues. Its adoption as such is only a ques tion of time.

Foreign nations am4 trobld, beeuse they lack goods, haven't raw materials. The trouble in this ountry is that we have TOO MCK GOODS AND RAW MAT3ERTAT. We certainly ean eongratilate ourselves on the fact that our trouble iq possessing MORE than we ned, and not being able to get rid of it. What is most serious, of course, is the idleness of more than five million men throughout the country. At the same time, the Secretary of Labor, Mr. Davis, reminds you that ia 1914 there 'were SEVEN millions idle, and we did not at that time, at least until the war began, talk about dee perately hard times. . t All that-is required in this country is the ie to put the men to work, for the work is here, and the goods are here. It is as though you bad idle teams of horses. and fields that needed plowing and harrowing. Sooner or later it would ooour to somebody to put the horses to work plowing the land. President Harding has already seleote4 a committee of able men to deal with the problem of unenployment. The Federal Beserve Bank reports a gain for a week of one thousand million dollars In "personal debits" at banks. Money is being drawn out and spet, add it cannot be spent without employing labor and buying goods. Instead of thinking and talking constantly about the EVIL thinga that have happened, talk occasionaly about this. country's. great GOOD fortune, and the evil things that have NOT happened. Onusmay is the best in the sworld. - When a man gets a dollar her, he gets three dollars' *orth of French money, twenty dollars' worth of German money. Ie gets R1AL money. We, went tirough a war, and spent a great deal. But, pyovidentially for this nation, the war stopped before we really had started -spending as .it might'have been done. Our total expenditares were loss than one year's income af the United States. A man or a nation can stand the loss of one year's ineome if he keeps his lift and his health. Other nations were bled white; they lost milions of their best young men, a loss that can never be made up com pletely and that will be felt for csaturies. This nation lost comparatively few. And while it lost some valuable lives, unfortunately, it educated millions of roung men by sending them to Europe, drilling thim, teach ing thenm giving them a broader outlook upon life. We did not pend fty thousand milion dollars entirely A for nothing. At least the ountry became aroued to the disgraeeful}[LITEN3ACA prevailing, and if that should be ort'eted,. as It WIlL be, the Improvement wi & be well worth the fifty billins. It is dificult, useleue perhaps, to adviso a man out of work to take anything but the most gloomy view. But, after all, fatoi* ABE starting up. Governments, State and Natiemal, ar, feeling and admitting their re iponsibility for the ldme..-lhey have not done that be tore. Factories that were olosed are opening. Primes are adjusting themseMlvA Cheerfulness, the kind ef esurage that the right kind of man shows under hard conditions, and the determination to make things better, WILL 3rAJrin THEM BETEB. Whatever you do, do not mUe the ohorus of groaners, the dismal crowd that see only evil dad worse to cosme. Don't deceive yourself, but don't let thema frighten you. This country came ott of the worst alamity, tihe most dis astrous war that this sarth ever saw. And it cams out j pradtically unhurt, as regards property and life. The wealth of any one of half a8ouen of our States could provide labor and a good living for the entire pop.ulan oofthis country. Wht we have taken from the soil, the mines and the fac tories as yet Is a msre nothing compared with what BE MA&IN8 to be taken. Intelligenes, COURAGE ABOVE A!IL, optimism that keeps the mind pe helerful, and capable of work, plus oo.operation'by herne'twhich Preident Harding In tends, will gradually, perhaps swiftly, solve the worst problems. Keep kway from the two moot dangerous mental poisons,4 PEA&R and DESPAIB. They kill snergy and blind the eyes to opgertunity.
