Dr. Weatherford spoke Saturday
morning on the auhject of "Selfish

ia the prime evil of the preaent fen

students, for ehich neither the fac

any direct preventive. Mr. Weather
ford trampled rough-shod over tha

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

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
