supplants liberty, whether the ten
? raized power be exercised by
monarch or by an official of he' re
public.
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.

TAKE SALTS TO
FLUSH KIDNEYS 1
Eat less meat if you feel Backachy or
Bladder troubles you—Salts is
fine for Kidney*
Meat forms uric acid which excites
and overworks the kidneys in their efforts '
to filter it from the system. Regular eat- ;
ers of meat must flush the kidneys occa
sionally. You must relieve them like you i
relieve your bowels; removing all the !
acids, waste and poison, else you feel a ‘
dull misery in the kidney region, sharp ;
▼>ains the back or sick headache, diz !
ziness, your stomach soUrS, “tongue is j
coated and when the weather i9 bad you
have rheumatic twinges. The urine is
cloudy, full of sediment: the channels
often* get irritated, obliging you to get
up two or •'three times during the night.
To neutralize these irritating acids
and flush ©ff the body’s urinous waste
get about four ounces of Jad Salts
from any pharmacy: take a table
spoonful in a glass of water before break
fast for a few days and your kidneys will
then act fine and bladder disorders dis
appear. This famous salts is made from
the acid of grapes and lemon juice, com
bined with lithia, and has been used for
generations to clean and stimulate slug
gish kidneys and stop bladder irritation.
Jad Salts is inexpensive; harmless and
makes a delightful effervescent lithia
water drink which millions of men and
women take now and then, thus avoiding
serious kidney and bladder diseases.
PUT CREAM IN NOSE
AND STOP CATARRH

trils and End Head-Colds.
You feel fine in a few moments. Your
cold in head or catarrh will be gone.
Your clogged nostrils will open. The air
passages of your bead will clear and
you can breathe freely. No more dull
ness, headache: no hawking, snuffling,
mucous discharges or dryness; no strap
gling for breath at night,
j Tell your druggist you want & small
bottle of Ely’s Cream Balm. Apply m
little of this fragrant, antiseptic cream
in your nostrils, let it penetrate through
every air passage of the head; sootne
and head the swollen, inflamed mucous
membrane, and relief comes instantly.’
It is just what every cold and catarrh

country can at presen., even attempt.
It can determine largely what in
stitutions can grow, and in the same
meaure wha£ shafl attandj sluiT and
decay. It can look over the territory
of the nation, note the place where
there is famine of learning, and*start
anew educational plan, of any species,
it chooses, or revive o’.d ones, what
the government does for education of
France and Germany. ll i power
would be enormous. 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.
This bill especially ought to meet
with the most, prompt and vigorous
opposition.
It ds .very much w r ofEe" than the
notorious “B£gir Bill," which our peo
ple rejected most emphatically thirty
years ago.—Bishop Warren A. Cand
ler.
