AN ESTATE THE PUBLIC SHOULD OWN.
It is said that a Washington real estate firm is offering
for sale Monticello, the famous estate of Thomas Jefferson, lo
cated near Charlottesville, Virginia. It is unpleasant to think
of this property so "rich in historical associations and so inti
maiely connected with Jefferson being peddled out. It is
- claimed that it is being offered to a "limited and special list
of those deemed both able and worthy to become the owners
of such a place." While this may be true to a certain extent
m most cases of the kind those are deemed "worthy" who have
.the price regardless of any other considerations.
After Mount Vernon there is probably no estate connected
with the early presidents of the .United States which it would
be more unfortunate to have fall into indifferent hands to be
come changed, possibly cut up, and at any rate lost from a
. historic standpoint. Not far away is the University of Vir-
- ginia which J eff erson founded and over which he watched with
such interest and care during the remainder of his lifetime.
In addition to the fact that Monticello was the home of
the author of the Declaration of Independence and a President
of the United States'it possesses a claim on the regard of the
American people as an original work qf art. Monticello was
designed by Jefferson himself and construction work begun
: when he was only twenty-six years old. This was delayed by
me Kevotutionary War and Jefferson s long residence in Eu
fope and it was not until 1801, the year of his first inaugura
tion, that the mansion was completed. During the interval Jef
ferson had opportunities for seeing much that was architectur
ally fine and undoubetdly brought home many ideas which
were later incorporated in his plans. While the work was in
progress a European authority on architecture wrote that it
was infinitely superior to all other houses in America in pomt
of taste and convenience." Later critics have, been equally
ready to give praise to it from an esthetic standpoint, some
even going so far as. to consider it a pity that Jefferson could
not have been accepted, as the founder of an American style of
' Several years ago Mrs. Martin W. Littleton, of New York
undertook a campaign for the purchase of the old place as a
national historic shrine and spent some time in Washington
trying to interest Senators and Representatives in the project
but while some interest was aroused there was not enough to
carry the thing through successfully. The movement was re
newed again last year in the form of an association which hoped
, Jo be able to raise enough money to purchase the seven hun
'dred acres of which the estate is comprised. This effort also
It is unfortunate that matters which do not have a direct
political bearing and are at least potential vote getters receive
so little consideration at the hands of Senators and Congress
men., It is to be hoped that some means either private or
public will be found to acquire the Jefferson property and
Keep 11 intact lor tne benefit or everyone as is the home of
Washington. It would be a humiliating thing hard to explain
to future generations and the world at large if this national
heirloom with all its associations were to be allowed to go the
way of ordinary real estate speculation.
A SIGNIFICANT CORNERSTONE
There are few who do not recall the shock with which
they learned of the wanton destruction by the Germans of the
University of Louvain. At that time the world had not begun
to realize that even in this century with all its knowledge and
supposed civilization it was still possible for men to return to
the stone age and its barbarous indifference to all that was
- intellectual and cultured.
When, however, it became known that this great institu
: tion nearing its seventh century which stood for all that was
highest in learning and intellectual culture; whose twenty-
eight colleges covered almost every known branch of learning;
whose degrees were among the most cherished r and whn0 i;'
brary was one of the most precieus in existence, was a mass
of ashes, a memory and nothing more, the world saw in all its
ugly reality the hideous thing it had to deal with.
White America could not prevent the destruction of this
old university it is a satisfaction to know that today there is
being laid, by the President of an American University the
cornerstone of a new Louvain Library, designed by an Amer
ican architect, and when the building is completed large Amer
ican contributions will help to fill its shelves. While nothing
can recall from the ashes much that gave Louvain its former
. pre-eminence its spirit is still intact and with a new start ran

To Take Child
When Joseph Deas, of Rutherford,

In the City court today, Deas ex
plained that the child had been stay
ing with her grandmother in Bridge
port since the death of her own moth
er which occurred a short time ago.
Deas came here yesterday to take his

he is employed, but his mother-in-law
refused to surrender the child without
a fight. Charges were nolled and the
youngster was placed in the custody
of her father.
