These propositions are so seif evi der;t na-c they might be accepted as axioms. Nevertheless, a bill is pending in b(*h houses of the Congress of the United Sjates which violates these axiomatic principles and menaces both good education and good govern ment. It is House Biif* 7 and Sena e Bib 1017, and. is eitfit ed “A Bill to Crea e a Departmen; of Education to author ize the appropriation of money to encourage the states in . he promotion and the support of education, and for other purposes." Although the caption cf the bill reads thus Plausibly, its contents are most objectionable, and it should meet with the most vigorous opposition from a 1 gtod friends of education and all vhe foes of centralized government In a recent number of '‘The Journ al," a legal periodica’, issued by the American Bar Association Hon. Wi - liam D., Guthrie, a member of th* New York bar, has pointed out most clearly and ccnclusive’y some of the main objections <o this mischievous measure and wha, he says deser-es he most serious consideration by wise and patriotic citizens alike. He shows that the bill is a flagrant viola Von of the Federal Con j s .itu.ion and that, if it shou and becom? a law, it would be most hurtful to the cause of education and very injurious to the country. The main points in Mr. Gu s brie * article are summarized as follows: “1. Under the Constitution of the i United States, no power has bear: delegated to Congress to regu a. e or control education in the several states. The subject was left within the exclusive domain and government al duty and responsible y of the several states and Congress' cannot seek directly or in direct y :p regulate or control educa tion in the stages without violating the reserved righ s of the states ano ithe i'undamental principle /of local self-governmenr. “2. The provisions of the Smith- Towner Bill would, in my judgment, inevitably involve an attempt to interfere in the local affairs of lie stattes and the policy of a so-calleJ federalization of educt* ion once es-1 tablished would lead to an aglta'ion and demand for constitutional! amend- J •ment in order to vest in Congress adequate and effective power ol centralized supervision and control. “3. Any such increase of federal power and diminution of state author ity, resposibiliify arid duty wouTd be .prejudicial to the best interests of the nation and of the states. The creation of anew ox ecutive depar ment jfo be known a the Department of Education, with •the Secretary of Education as head hereof and as such, a member of the President’s Cabinet, would bring the subject of education into politics, with the danger of constantly varying policies, and constantly pur sued effori/3 to control the patron age of the department in the interests of the party then in power. “5. The tendency of federal’ inter ferer.ee and or indirect con ro! VsGird be toward the centralization; and standardization wyould in alj probability prove to be' prejudicial not only o the pub ic schocl sys.em but jo the independent and satisfact ory operation of existing private schools, including those maintained by .be various religious deriomina tions for the purpose of especially securing to the younger children of the country the benefit! of adequate religious training as we)9 as secular education.” These points of objection are wel 1 -aken and there are other reasons for opposition to the bill which ait scarcely fess weighty." With the federalization of education trough the National Department ot Education, with a Secretary of Edu cation ah its head, political interfer ence with racial issues in the com mon schools, such as the Japanese question in California and the negro quesfen in th*. South, would fo’low inevitably, and irritating conditions of the worst sort wou’.d arise thereby We may be sure that federal con trol of education would follow federal appropriations of educa- ion and a generation of voters educated under such a centra szed system would in evitably overthrow our type of free government and reduce the states to servl’e provinces forever besieging, a?> mendicants, the national treasuiy. Moreover, we might expect that the heavily endowed boards of eduea ion, which in recent years * have been organized with federal charters. THE OCALA BANIf OCALA.

II seems as it it might be ab'te to determine . the character of American education. The funds which it holds represents only a fractional amount of that which it would control; by giving a sum to an institution on the condition that it raise an equal or grea er amount, t will be able to and rect much larger amounts than it possesses.” Since it was organized the funds of the board have been increased hv many mil;ions, and its relation to the Carnegie foundaj ion have become very intimate. Its power is vastly greater than when the editor of the Outlook declared: “It might be abe :o de termine the character of American education.” And its directors have shown a marked disposition to do what the Outlook said. Given such a piece of political machinery as the Federal Department of Educa ion would be, w-hat would the managers of this board do? Does any sane man believe that they w t ouU have no temptation to secure control iof such a piece of machinery? Does] any reasonable man imagine that hey j would not yield to the temptation to acquire the con rol of the machine? Then what? Do we wish American educatidn to ; be fashioned on a Prussian pattern? j Has no education in our country suffered already* far too much at the hands of educational machinists op erating pedagogic machinery? Has not its freedom been impaired and its force diminished? I It is high time for us do call a halt on all ihese insidious encroachments ] on the freedom t)f our educa/.ion.
