Dr. Weatherford ia perhapa the most widely known among South em college atudenta of any other pub lic man. Ha waa the chief itimulua in the establishment of the Southern Y. M. C. A. College at Nashville, and ita supplement, the Summer Y. M. C A. Conference and School at Blue Ridge, N. C. Dr. Weatherford spoke Saturday morning on the auhject of "Selfish ness." Ha believes that selfiahnese ia the prime evil of the preaent fen eration. It ia the only evil among students, for ehich neither the fac ulty or the atudent body can apply any direct preventive. Mr. Weather ford trampled rough-shod over tha proclaimed lawa of psychologists and scientista and denied emphatically that "self-preservation ia the first law of life." He aaid unselfishness ia the first law of life, and proceed ed to give numerous flluatrationa to bark up hia argument. On Sunday evening he spoke to the atudenta on, "The Danger of Sin." He referred not to the particular individual ain of ' One of the most fundamental is yesterday nor of last week, but the sues that haa ever confronted the gradual and gripping Influence that 1 people of Madison county ia now be- sin haa upon the life of a student who ia unwilling to put up the con sistent fight against It.

Robertaon, Professor History and Political Science Berea College By There will be a new Parfiament elected in England as a result of the Cabinet changes. The ex-premior, Moyd George, is campaigning for the Coalition Liberals. It ia his belief that the best good to England will come from united party action just now rather than from party compe tition. One branch of the Liberal party stands for this, and it ia to In crease the number of representatives of this branch that Lloyd George is now working. Hia speeches are strong arraignmenta of the partisan spirit and method which have led to his downfall. A tour in Scotland la bringing out large and enthusiastic udiences. Meanwhile the new pre mier, Bonar Law, is telling the peo ple that there is to be no essential change in national policy, tho the Conservative party is in control. For some time there have been rumors of a proposed .conference with Latin American countries in the interests of disarmament and peace. Such conference is now to be a real ity, and December 4 ia set aa the date. The countries invited to par ticipate at Washington are Nicara gua, Honduras, Salvador, Guatemala and Costa Rica. The plan at present does not include the countries of South America, and jMexIco seems to be left out There has always been a good deal of quarreling among these Central Americai states as well as revolutionary movements within. The U. S. has little to fear from them, hut anything that will lead to peace and disarmament will mean progress. The U. S. desire a condition of stability in the neigh borhood of the Canal Zone. A request has been made thru England that the United States par. ticipate in the conference to be held by the Allies in settlement of the status of Turkey. Secretary Hughes has refused to depart from the Amer ican policy of keeping out of Euro pean affairs. He has agreed, how ever, as in previous conferences, ta the presence of an observer. In this case the service will doubtless be performed by our minister to Switz erland in which country the con ference ia to be held. The U. S. haa sent ships of war to the near East to look out for the interests of Amer icans in that region, but this action is independent By virtue of her reputation for fairness, our country Is qualified to be more than an ob server in such a conference. Ireland's new Constitution has been ratified by the Dail Eireann, much to the satisfaction of both Ireland and England. The Constitution la a fitting memorial to the two leaden recently lost by death, Griffith and Collins. It is largely the work of their hands and brains. In generV, it conforms to the provisions of the Treaty. There will be two chambers in the legislative department, the Upper House or Senate being com posed of oldu-r men who serve for twelve years. Money bills will origi nate in the Lower House on recom mendation of the crown. A bill of riirhts ensures freedom of speech a,nd religion and the Irish language is . , . . . tho official speech.
