A Separate Peace or Present Treaty Modified Technically rMkinjr, diplomat is one who is skilled in the rt of rondurtiriK mtfotiHtions Mwpi-n nation", hut In common language he ia one who ran drive over both siiles of crowded road at the aame time and never rauae a colliaion. The lateat ad dition to the lint of diplomata ia our recently elected Preaidt-nt. Ill first meaaage tu Congress at the opening of the extraordinary aeaaion on April 12 received the hearty applaue of three diatinct faitiona. Theae faction have uncompromiaing viewa upon many national and international issues, and the order and cnnh-nt of the meaaage waa of auch a character aa t atimulnte hope in the aoula of all three. Ilia early pronouncement on foreign affaira brought a roaring applauae from the non-league or "irreconcilable" faction berauae he recommended a aeparate peace with Germany by con greaaional resolution or what ia without question tantamount t the name. He alao made rlenr his opposition to a league of Nations, which ileclaration brought applauae from that wing of Republican whi are praitially againat "the" League or even "a" League, but who are al'o opposed to a separate peace with Germany. And in the rloaing remarks upon the foreign situation he brought the Democrats to applause by expressing the desire to stick to the pres ent treaty hirh ia itself bodily interwoven with the league of Nations. This position to the casual reader would aeem to be a reversal of a previous statement made in the aame apeech, but in tnith the spew h is an instrument for interpretation anil specu lation. No man can "vent his spleen" because of President Hard ing's position on foreign affairs. Ilia message ia like the Bible, for you ran prove any point you wish to make by quoting from isolated passages. The man who say the President is against the present treaty has to fare this statement, "the wiser course would aeem to lie the acceptance of the confirmation of our right and interests as already provided, and to engage under the exist ing treaty, assuming, of course, that this can be satisfactorily ar complihhetl by smh explicit rcscrvationa and modification as will secure our absolute freedom from inadviaable commitmenta and safeguard all our essential interests." A congressional declara tion of pem is an absolute rejection of the present treaty be cause it place no responsibility of enforcement of term upon the t'nited States, one of the warring nations in the last conflict. France and Kn gland will not agree to a aeparate peace, but doea it matter much now? The closing paragraph of the me "mge waa the cream of the entire production, and upon it we can base the hope that America will "tote" her share of the load in the readjustment of world affaira. The speech contained many valuable suggestions for the re construction of domestic affairs, and we hope will receive the prompt and hearty support of a united Congress. prnuc school notes K. F.
