one wonders whether all college professors are omniscient or cap able of producing social perfection by a simple twist of the wrist as some of them would lead us to believe Men Beldam or rather never for a length of i tune and deliberately rebel against anything that does not deserve rebelling GOVERNMENT BY CONFERENCE rpHE favorite Indoor sport at the summer qonfer ences which have been flourishing in academic shades at Wllllamstown Mass and Charlottesville Va seems to have been that of swatting Uncle Sam The old gentleman has been subjected to no end of belaboring by economists sociologists diplomats am ateur and professional and what not An occasional voice has been raised In defense but on the whole it has been made apparent that the people of this coun try are working under a severe handicap in that they are not being governed by a summer conference rath er than by the agencies constitutionally provided The more or less experts who have held forth at Wil liams college and the University of Virginia would demolish the protective tariff forgive the European debts sink the navy disband the army join the league of nations apologize to the whole world for the stu pidity of the American government and the crudity of the American people inject unlimited quantities of socialistic serum into the body politic and would certainly cure or kill Uncle Sam within a few weeks if given opportunity to try their patent medicines on a national patient who In his desperate case really seems to most folks to be a good deal better off thkn any other sick man in the political ward Of course it must be said In defense of Those who actually have the job of governing the country that they have reali ties to deal with while tl theorists are able to speak well of their own schemes without having to subject them to tests that of course might prove a bit cm barassing After Norman Thomas socialist candidate for president in the last campaign had expounded the theory of state socialism at Williamstown on Aug 8 hawas followed by Dr William E Dodd professor at Chicago university an institution which is f in itself a monument to capitalistic cussedness in that It was endowed by no less a malefactor of great wealth than John D Rockefeller Dr Dodd agreed with Mr Thomas that the United States had departed from the idealism of Its founders and had made a sorry mess of itself The United States declared Dr Dodd is now looked on with fear thruout the world Children in CzechoSlovakia and Belgium are scared by their nurses with the specter of a bloodthirsty and cruel Uncle Sam who Is roaring about the world seeking whom he may devour The men of our Revo lution said Dr Dodd like the Russians of our time Intended to start an entirely new social system Washington it seems was the Lenin and Jeffer son the Trotzky of his time The justification of the comparison does not very clearly appear in anything that Washington or Jefferson ever said or did If they were seeking to establish a government based upon expropriation class dictatorship suppression of liberty of speech and of the press and wholesale mas sacre of all political dissidents the histories have left it all out up to this time But of course there is a movement to rewrite our histories and In due time we may learn that Washington and Jefferson were bewhiskered bolshevists even if Washington did give Citizen Genet his walking papers when he tried com munist methods on the American government However it is encouraging to note that the pessi mistic Dr Dodd baa a remedy If we can only raise up in this country farseeing politicians like those of the labor party In Great Britain with its program of state socialism we may be able to get the United States back on a decent footing and cease to scare the rest of the world to death with our lapses from college standards of welldoing However Dr Dodd admits that it Is a forlorn hope He cannot believe It is possible that this country will ever rise to the idealistic levels of soviet Russia The only remedy we judge is for the good Dr Dodd to remove his his lory department to Moscow where real academic free dom flourishes and the ideals of George Washington In full flower Perhaps it would be possible to raise pretty good sized collection to remove all college professors who feel that way to that more favorable environment Of course if the professors were to lambast soviet Russia in Moscow as they do Uncle Earn at a summer conference they would soon be thinking it over in Jail In Siberia or in front of a firing sqund but little discomforts of that kind would be a small price to pay for getting out of this enslaved bloodthirsty moneymad republic At Charlottesville Va on the same day an econ omist or something from New York City made the welkin ring with protesting outcry because the United States department of agriculture sends its agents out to the farmers to teach them better methods of rais ing sheep and hogs and Improve the soil Instead of teaching them the doctrine of evolution The growth of industries which employ men who eat what the farmer produces he declared would finally starve the farmer out The people of the United States road these lugub rious lamentations and just go on being the most prosperous secure and happy people in the world Some way or other despite the low estate into which the professorsf think we have sunk we have not been compelled to put an export tax on outgoing Ameri cans by reason of a general flight from this Sodom and Gomorrah poor house and lunatic asylum com bined On the contrary we are compelled to put up high immigration barriers to keep from being swamped by immigration from nations in which slm THE FLIGHT OF THE ZEP mHE first aerial voyage round the world is under way with the Graf Zeppelin safely at Tokyo fol lowingan interesting jaunt over the barbarous wastes of Siberiafrom Berlin This is outwardly a sportingcommercial event Yet in its essence is a great potential influence upon the course of international economy and political In a real way it heralds the return of Germany to her position among the leading world the powerful sceedy Zeppelin offering quick and cheap transport anywhere in the world leaps over the heads of the commercial fleets of the world that have hith erto brot economic dominion to the maritime nations The time is not yet ripe of course But in the Graf Zeppelin is the seed of a mighty change a new factor which challenges seapowers supremacy Theres something to think one may be sure
