LOCKWOOD Prof. Erich Klieber, of Berlin, now conducting concerts in New York, says that in almost no country in the world has he found "such an astonishing susceptibility to mus ic" as he has in the United States. "I was stunned," he says, "at the tremendous popularity of the good music of all nations in America." Americans have, he says, the three requisites that make good music possible—religion, patriotism and love. That America leads even Europe in the appreciation of good music is a statement that will of. course be disputed by our home-grown critics who think it makes them ap pear sophisticated when they parrot the statements of many Europeans that Americans are barbarians, incap able of understanding what they call good music, or any other higher form of art. But what Professor Klieber, a competent commentarian, says of the national characteristics which make the ap preciation of good music possible, is something worth thinking about. Cynics and materialists who are chronic knockers of America, and also of patriotism, religion and all senti ment and emotion, are the enemies of all cultural advance ment, which flowers in real literature, in real music, in real art of any description. Wherein humanity progress es, it advances beyond the material level on which mere animals live. The materialist conception of society has rapidly gained ground in this country. It is entrenched in the colleges and churches as well as in the counting houses. Senti ment, emotion, enthusiasm, spontaneity are ridiculed as puerile. This represents retrogression and reaction. Em erson in one of his essays made a strong plea for the pre servation of the characteristics which are peculiarly American, rather than stupid imitation of the culture of the older world. Our history has been a romance of con - quest over Nature. The history of our republic is the world's most thrilling story of adventure. To fail to com prehend this is an evidence either of ignorance or lack of imagination. It proves that our great material pro gress has brought about the worship of materialism on the part of many, so that they fail to understand the meaning of America. But our material development should he thought of as a means and not an end. It has meant not more acquisi tion of wealth, and diffusion of comforts and luxuries but an opportunity to millions for emancipation of the spirit from the clogging circumstances of lands in which the mere struggle for existence is necessarily the chief aim peculiar national destiny. The European plans of die-] tutorship for economic purposes, crushing the divine of life. The material achievements of America are only the reverse side of the tapestry. The pattern is to he seen in all its beauty only on the other side. The creation of an economic situation in which the mere battle for food, clothing and shelter, becomes incidental rather than the main object of life, brings with it the obligation to use wealth and leisure in developing that taste for those fields of human effort in which the human spirit takes wing into the empyrean. If material things re main the purpose of our existence as a people, then all that we have accumulated is worse than worthless, since it will smother ns in the lust for power to be gained by the selfish use of these things. The political and economic philosophies now domin ant in Europe are not for ns, if we wish to achieve our Washington Snapshots Taken by the Helms News Service Although Congress does not con vene for four weeks. Capital Hill is taking on a new life of political activity as Democrats, Republicans and Progressives begin arriving to formulate programs, advance poli tical fortunes and to hold what Most impor 1 ever they now have, tant of the new arrivals is Senator Norris, Republican, of Nebraska, leader of the Progressive bloc in the Senate, who comes with a pro posal for a $8,000,000.000 appro priation for road building means of helping employment, a prediction that President Hoover will be renominated by the Repub licans and some satirical comment as on President Hoover's "latest com mission"—the one on "Abysmal ignorance." oooOooo The Administration wants to know what the Democrats plan to do with the House of Representa tives. That it concedes they will organize the legislative branch be comes more evident as Republi cans who held much of the power in the last House are dropping in to talk with John N. Garner, of Texas, Democratic choice for the Speakership. Among those who are sounding out Garner on his legislative program are Tilson, of Connecticut, and Snell, of New York, Republican candidates for the Speakership; Wood of Indiana, chairman of the last House Ap propriations Committee; Parker*, of New York, who guided the Inter state Commerce Committee, and Underhill, of Massachusetts, head of the Accounts group. Walter Newton, one of President Hoover's secretaries, also talked with Gar ner. oooOooo Democratic leaders in the East who are opposing the Presidential candidacy of Gov. Franklin D. Roosevelt were warned of the pos sibility of a third-party movement should they succeed in blocking the New Yorker, The warning came from Wheeler, of Montana, who was the Vice Presidential candidate on a third party ticket in 1924. Senator Wheeler declared "the Democrats can win with Roosevelt or lose without him" and he predicted that should a third-party ticket go into the Presidential race next year it would drain more votes from the Democrats than from the Republicans, "as was demonstra ted when La Follette ran in 1924." oooOooo President Hoover's Armistice Day speech was surprising to many because of the vigorous em phasis which he put upon the nec essity of military preparedness. Mr. Hoover has been charged with leaning toward pacifism and ideal istic internationalism. A pacifist could hardly use such words as these: "Peace is the product of prepardness for defense, of patient settlement of controversy and of the dynamic development of the forces of good will. It is the re sult of the delicate balance of that realism horn of human experience and of idealism born of the highest of human aspirations for interna tional justice." oooOooo In the most important reassign ment of warships since a new op erating plan was put into effect a year ago, the Navy Department recently slated seventeen vessels to be tied up at docks until further notice. Two of the warships will be placed permanently out of use, but the others will be held in the status of reserve commission. Al though the department's announ cement avoided allusion to the mo tives and the implications of new orders, they generally were con sidered to be the first step in the Navys latest economy program The tying up of seventeen vessels would permit an eventual decrease in personnel of nearly 1,000 men. The possible operating economies can be estimated on the basis of the fact that the annual appropri spark of liberty that can only fire the heart of the indi vidual, in order that despots may hold men in subjuga tion in systems that have become only gigantic jails and alms houses, would set up impenetrable barriers to our spiritual progress. America is only on the threshold of her cultural devel opment—if we hold fast to the principles, ideals and pol icies upon which onr civilization is founded and by which it is protected from the attack of lower moral, political and economic standards. Religion, love, patriotism; these indeed are the emo tions which can realize the'dreams of the great Ameri can adventure. But those dreams can he realized only by retaining the standards of life, and extending them to all Americans, which since they set men free, are essential to the diffu sion of culture, not among a more social upper crust, but among the millions for whoso nation was established. general welfare" this I i ships have been ■ 00 , 000 . ations to run the: approximately $: oooOooo At the suggestion of President Hoover, a plan is being worked out by the Civil Service Commis sion for the Government employ es to supply $1,01)0,0(30 of the $2, 001,000 quota ol (be local Com munity Chest here for the coming year. It is thought that the plan will resemble similar ones adopted by industries throughout the coun try. whereby employes voluntarily contribute one or two or three days' pay a month. In making this known at the White House President Hoover emphasized the fact that such a contribution plan proposes to include civil service employes not only in Washington, butthroughout the country. oooOooo Ambassador Dawes will attend next week's meetings of the Lea gue of Nations Council at Paris if American participation in discus sion of the Sino-Japanese situa tion in Manchuria becomes imper ative. It is not now felt that it will be necessary for this Govern ment to be represented in the Council meeting, but it was indi cated at the State Department re cently that Secretary Stimson de sired in Paris a man who could properly and adequately speak for the United States should any con tingency require this Government to intervene. oooOooo Senator Borah has already de cided, in his own name and right, that the project of adherence to the World Court by the United States must not be even considered in the next session of Congress. Perhaps the President may have a word to say about that.

CIVILIZATION ou j the brighter views in the dark (Continued from page 1) panorama. He showed that ele ments of humanitarianism and hu-| man wisdom have remained and grown stronger through the gen erations, but that men have not yet learned to control the powers they develop, He dwelt particularly on war as the destructive force that has top pled most nations—war caused by the inability of states to adjust themselves to one another, and to adjust themselves to progress and specialization. After mentioning that the nations are spending more each year in preparation for an other war, he quoted Emil Ludwig, who has prophesied a war that will explode and burn away our mod ern world; a war that will utilize our advanced scientific knowledge to destroy the civilization that sci ence has helped to build. The use of machines has lifted the human race to the highest position men have yet occupied on earth—but the machine might also help to topple the civilized world and send it crashing into the abyss that has swallowed the great races of the past. "Science can be the means of preserving a race if properly em ployed," Mr. Jenkins said in con-i elusion, "but it can also cause dis aster if employed in warfare."
