He said: "Kidicule it (Babbitry or Uotarianism) as much a.s you please, but the force is a pow- erful one and it gets results.

The new urge lias taken form to demand a bet- ter quality of life for a larger portion of the people, and a better quality of methods and men for public relations lead- ership."

S. Commissioner of Educa- tion Cooper would like to in- clude an element in our edu- cational cirricula which would deal with preventives of ten- dencies toward crime. He says that there is an alarm- tendency toward crime to- day amonjr our young1 people. He thinks that our educa- tional institutions should take of that, and do something about it. Commissioner Cooper is right. There may be a break .flown in our great educational! 'institutions in this respect. What the smaller Christian ing thr colleges are cndavpring to do, the big state institutions arc omitting. Here is a great ar- gument for the small church college. We believe that if a survey of the colleges of the nalion were made, it would be found that our great moral lenders are generally speaking pro- ducts of the small institutions in which wholesome religious influences are predominant. Liberalism has become too pronounced in our free insti- tutions, and there i.s today a question mark in the minds of the people as to the efficacy of higher education.
