"Migration Threatens Prosperous Nations"
"Speaking; on "Migration as a World Prob
lem" Professor Edward A. Ros3 of the Univer
sity of Wisconsin said in a recent address:
"Cheap travel and full steerages make mock
of the ideal of -nationality. Any prosperous
country which' leaves its doors ajar will present
ly find itself not the home of a nation, but a
polyglot boarding house. The thriving areas of
the world will come to be populated by a con
fused parti-colored mas3 of divers languages and
religions and of he most discordant moral and
economic standards. Coolies at the breech
clout stage of attire, such as you , find in the
back districts; of the Far East, will jostle the
descendants of the Puritans.
"For a people ,wliich has arrived at an adap
tive birth rate to "admit the surplus population
begotten , by ..other peoples which multiply with
out taking thought for the morrow 'is virtually
to cut its own throat. It is a painless death, to
be sure, 'which extends over a century or two
and proceeds; without clash or scandal, but no
people which foresees it will adhere to the fatal
policy of the open door. Dogmas of the open
door and the melting pot become absurd in a
time when population rolls hither and thither
about the globe like particles of quicksilver."
What of America's Pasteurs?
"Pasteur, whose anniversary was L celebrated
throughout the civilized world yesterday, was
the son of a peasant. His father was a French
tanner," I says the Kansas -City Star. "But the
boy , was sent to school, he received proper train
ing, he came in contact with fertile idea3, and he
became one of humanity's great benefactors.
"It is the essence of democracy to keep the
door of opportunity open to its Pasteurs and
others like him. That familiar principle is em
phasized and emphasized again in the recent
book 6f that brilliant public servant, Herbert
Hoover. So long as America makes it possible
for the boy to win whatever position his talents
fit him for, he insists that "America is safe.
' 'An inquiry into the birthplaces of leading
scientific men in this country developed that the
great majority of them came from states ac
cessible to adequate schools. States remote from
such institutions had small quotas of dis
tinguished scientists. The trouble was not with
the sons of those states, but with the lack of

Who's Who in the
Day's News
Jacinto Benevente, one of the five
men to win the 1922 Nobel prize, is a
Spanish playwright He is the sec
ond in his country to receive the
prize for literature. It is really a
double prize, cov
ering tne years ot
1921 and 1922. Be
nevente is held by
most English-
speaking people to ,
be a writer of the I
heavier dramas j
a.nd tragedies, but
in his own country
he is famous for
his humor, wit and
satire. He is 55
years old and was
born in Madrid,
wBere he studied
law. He never
practiced the pro
fession, however, being from the be
ginning interested in the theatre.
His first play, "Thy Brother's
House." was serious, but even at the
start he showed less anxiety about
the plot than he did about character
ization. A reputation for bitter sat
ire gained in this country by the first
of his plays to be done hereof "The
Bonds of Interest," has not yet been
lived down, although he has written
much in a different vein.
Spain is very proud of this play
wright and points to him as a mod
ern Ixpe de Vega or Calderon. He
is said to be an admirer of these an
cients and is bound to produce a cer
tain number of their works in his po
sition as director of the Teatro Es
panol in Madrid.
Ernevente is expected in the Unit
ed States soon to see the production
of his play in English called "Fields

Rippling Rhymes
WASHINGTON, D. C, Dec. 29. The
president of the United States, togeth
er with his cabinet, and many members
of both houses of congrfiss and other
government officials are giving a good
deal of thought to the moral by-products
of the prohibition amendment to
the constitution. Mr. Harding announ
ced recently that practically the whole
of that day's cabinet session was de
voted to a discussion of the public at
titude toward prohibition. This has
been true of other cabinet days and in
addition many law-makers and admin
istrators of the law at Washington are
spending much time in earnest discus
sions of the effect of the eighteenth
amendment.. . ' '
The problem which is worrying the
president and other officials is: Are
the American people in danger of los
ing their innate respect for law
through the spectacle of wholesale and
continuous violation of the Volstead
act? Wrill the effect of violation of
this law bring other laws into dis
repute? ' .
Prohibition has been a vehicle for
the whole gamut of jokes which can be
attached to such laws and fundament
ally to the idea of into:f eating liquor.
This has aided measurably in building
up in the minds of many Americans
the opinion that prohibition itself is a
humorous matter. What worries the
officials, here is that it is possible for
the people to persist in the joke view
of any law, no maver what its subject
They are worried because theirs is the
task, first, of making the laws and,
second, of enforcing them, and if a sit
uation develops where public co-oper
ation is lacking, the business of gov
ernment will become extremely difficult
While prohibition Is the most per
plexing problem immediately before
the administration, the moral attitude
which the president has defined has
extended already to other statutes.
Members of the house committee on
the judiciary recently had a discussion
of the astonishing relaxation in the
public mind on the subject of perjury.
in the Hiatish law, wbere most of our
laws find their springs, perjury was
considered a very serious crime. In
this country, until recently, the same
I've toiled since day was breaking.
I'm tired and broken-kneed, and all
my heart is aching for something
good to read. A good old fashioned
story that has a decent kick, wherein
the heroes gory make all the villains
sick. I want no weary pages, dissecting
Human souls, no wont by bogus sages
no plotless rigmaroles. I drop my thread
and needle, I dump my checkerboard,
and think of good old Beadle, whose
works I once adored. The heroes
hunted red men along the forest aisles
and left a gross of dead men all cord
ed up in piles. The red men caught
the heroes and bound them to tb
stake, and like so many. Neras, de
creed that they should bake. These
tales were not demanding a strain,
to comprehend; a 10-cent understand
ing could grasp them to the end!
Though full of of scrap and quarrel,
and corpses on the ice .they all were
strictly moral, and virtue conquered
vice. And there was always action
that kept a man awake, and gave him
satisfaction and soothed his inward
ache. And there were love and spoon
ing, and moonshine in the air, and
lovely damsel3 swooning, and palfrys
here and there. New authors come
and wheedle, and say their works
are "great, but how I yearn for Beadle,
whose books are out of date!
opinion has been held. To gwear to a
falsehood i-s heavily punishable and
the old-fashioned American recoiled
from the crime almost as strongly as
from murder. A canvass of the situa
tion in the courts of the United States
made in the discussion by the members
of the judiciary committee revealed
that perjury is getting to be a com
mon thing and, furthermore, often goes
wholly unpunished.
One member of the committee point
ed out what he regarded as a curious
moral twist in the minds of modern
perjurors. They were, he saw, in
clined to regard perjury in court as a
sort of technical crime rather than a
high moral crime. Perjury, it appears,
is not an index to the ordinary honesty
of the perjuror. Many a man who
would recoil from telling a lie to his
neighbor or in business or in any of
the usual affairs of life, thinks nothing
of making oath in court to a statement
of which he may not be at all certain
and sometimes knows to be untrue. In
a word, the court oath has come in the
minds of many citizens, the- members
of the committee discovered, to mean
nothing more than a matter of tech
nical court routine. The solemn func
tion of placing the right hand on the
Bible and pronouncing the oath has
degenerated in many cases into the
making of a gesture and the mumbling
of a few words.
It can readily be understood that the
men who are charged with the making;
lost of the fundamental difference in
laws. "
A prohibition law Is a sumptuary
law. It long has been recognized by
the great legislators of the world that
there is a statute forbidding- it and
that which is fundamentally wrong as
a moral proposition.
Two good examples are the customs
law and the law against murder. It Is
unlawful to smuggle dutiable goods in
to the United States because the sta
tutes say that all persons must de
clare such goods and pay a tariff on
them. However, it is not, of itself,
morally wrong, to bring goods across
an imaginary line or take them ashore
by law. There is a law against mur
der but it is an entirely different sort
of law. Everybody, from the most un
lettered savage to the most polished
scholar, knows it is wrong to commit
a murder. It is not wrong merely be
cause the law says it is wrong; it i3
morally wrong as a fundamental fact
The analogy drawn by officials at
Washington is that there appears to be
a danger that people will lose sight of
these differences. The customs law
and the prohibition law are both of
sumptuary nature. It Is wrong to
smuggle and it is wrong to drink be
cause the law forbids these actions.
Both laws are frequently violated but
most of the violators do not feel that
they have committed any moral sins.
It is wrong to murder and it is wrong
to swear to a falsehood, not only be
cause there are forbidding statutes
against ""those actions, but because
thoso crimes are innately and of them
selves wrong.
To show the case in another way:
there are many people in the United
States who would vote to repeal the
prohibition and the customs laws;
