HEAD OF UNIVERSITY ON EDUCATIONAL WORK PRESIDENT BINDLEY STATEMENT CONCERNING S. A. T. C. STATUS MAKES The question of perhaps greatest importance just now with the S. A. T. C. and the vocational men is the possible effect of the forthcoming peace upon students here in military work. In an interview with an Argonaut representative, President Lindley says: "From the first I have believed the plan of vocational training for soldiers was designed by the govern ment to meet the needs of the period of reconstruction as well as the de mands of the war. This country has had an insufficient number of men trained in these crafts. The increas er than a course in general mech anics ? ing role of machinery in modern life places an increasing premium on such knowledge and skill. What better knowledge could there be for a farm "As to the Collegiate Section, there is much evidence that the United States plans to provide for the educa tion of young soldiers whose school work has been interrupted by the It is rumored that the S.

The man who ex pec ^ s j - 0 compete successfully in the new era now dawning will find need for all the training possible. In Oth er words, the man who expects to sqcceed without scientific training w jn fj n j himself on the scrap heap, continue until demobilization. Tt will be remembered that Sen telegram above quoted, the govern ment realizes a similar obligation to the members of the S. A. T. C. who are now in college. These stu dents entered upon a course of colleg iate training for government service. It is hoped and believed that they will be permitted to remain in school long enough to derive a real benefit from the experience. "Courses of study may be modified ' K "This program will not appeal to the men who have no ambition, but those who desire to win promotion and success in the world will appre ciate this as a golden opportunity to get ready without expense to them selves for the strenuous days just ahead." nu simm still DEMANDS moil GUILD HALL NO LONGER NEED ED AS HOSPITAL—CLASSES RESUME WORK The influenza situation while not quite so encouraging this week as last, is not at present causing un- i due alarm here.

"Dear Mr. Editor: The days and months succeeding a war are days of peril—even of greater peril than that of war. In beatifig the enemy we were united—it was the first condition of victory. Nation with nation, class with class, political group with political group, and man with man. But the victory We're not equal to the job. People are sensitive and touchy after a fight ; they need a great deal of kind handling. There are always chances of making friction. The safest way to avoid it is to acknowledge how much the other fel low did—and to say less about the first person, singular or plural. "It is time, for instance, that America saved the day. America forget that; they will blow her trumpet, all right. But it hurts the English and the French and Italians to have it rammed down their throats be fore their wounds are healed. They merely ask that while they themselves, with their hats off, shout praises of U. S. A. that she will sometimes remem ber the clay was saved in the morning as well as in the evening. We shall for ward peace best; but shouting each other's praises—not our own. As an Englishman (by birth), I say: " Thank God for America !'.Is it mutual? There : is no peace without mutuality. "Mav I add another word. We are all looking towards a closer union English-speaking people, towards the j elimination of all sources of friction and You are in that. Mr. I Then, t submit it in all humil The Allies will not let : Editor. misunderstanding. ity, it is not wise to make cuts at King George. King George and the English Constitution are not Kaiser William and Germany. Without any comparison be tween the relative autocracy of a presi dent and a limited (very much limited!) monarch, it will be well for the sake of our permanent good friendship to let the English look after their king. I will say frankly that nothing 'gets the blood' of a Britisher sooner than a contemptu ous cut about his king. I say that as an American-in-the-making, not as a Brit isher. It is a statement for fact, and worth a little consideration in the present situation. When Britain feels that another constitution is expedient for the expansion of her national and social free dom. she will see to it without delay. If King George were asked by the people to step down tomorrow, he would do so—and remain the most respected gentleman in Britain. "I trust that all I have said will be taken in the spirit in which it is said. The biggest thing in the future is a more complete consolidation of the English speaking peoples. Such consolidation waits upon a complete comprehension of one another ; to understand we need to be frank. "Yours truly, "W. H. BRIDGE."
