Silent Cal on the Standards
Of the Collegian
Said President Uoolidge: “Two great tests in mental dis
cipline are accuracy and honesty. It is far better to master
a lew subjects thoroughly than to have a mass of generaliza
tions about many subjects. The world will have little use for
those who are right only a part of the time. Whatever may
be the standards of the classroom, practical life will require
something more than (it) per cent or 70 per cent for a passing
mark. The standards of the world are not like those set by
the faculty, but more closely resemble those set by the student
body themselves. They are not at all content with a member
of the musical organizations whfi can strike only 90 per cent
of the notes. They do not tolerate the man on the diamond who
catches only SO per cent of the balls. The standards which the
student body set are high. They want accuracy that is well
nigh complete. They apply the same standards to candor and
honesty. Bluff and pretense may be permitted in the class
room; but in their relations with each other students regard
such practices with contempt, and those who resort to them
are properly considered to lie cheap. They may be willing to
view with considerable tolerance those who break the rules of
the school, but they will not fail to mete out condemnation
and penalty to those who break the rules of training. When the
world holds its examinations it will require tin- same standards
ol accuracy and honesty which student bodies impose upon
themselves. Unless the mind is brought under such training
and discipline as will enable it to acquire these standards at an
early period, the grave danger increases that they may never
And, though if is a well-known fact that the president is
always wrong, for once, we say, Silent Cal uttered a mouthful.

ed to lose his third presidential elec
tion. “The inconsistency of it all is
entirely beyond my comprehension,”
ho admitted. “Apparently these
peace treaties are taken seriously
only among the general public. Con
gress is obviously still influenced
by the bugaboo of war, and by pre
1914 principles of statecraft.
Need Faith in Nations
“When we begin to have a little
real faith in our neighbors, then we
will begin to develop the right in
ternational attitude,” he said. “I
hope that someday the American
public and their legislators will feel
free to believe the people of England
when they say that they do not in
tend to entef^into cruiser competi
tion with us. When that time comes, [
perhaps Congress will cease making
itself the laughing stock of the world !
by such actions as this one.”
Mr. Howard grew even more spe-!
eifie. at this point. “There is no
other nation except England Oa
God’s green earth against which we
could be building a navy,” lie sug
gested. “It isn’t . Japan,—they’re !
broke, and unless it’s Liberia or
Denmark we are afraid of, who
could it be?
Fowler V. Harper is just as uii
•ompromising as Mr. Howard. “I -
hiuk that the cruiser bill is an ab
solutely indefensible measure at any
time, and to push it just after rati
fying the Kellogg treaty seems to
me to make a farce of this coun
try’s position in the eyes of the i
world,” he said. “The two are ob- \
viously inconsistent and no excuse
or rationalization can possibly recon
“The whole action,” he went on,
“is based on a fallacy which the
military powers have foisted off on
the people for so long that a large
proportion have come to believe it— '
the fallacy the best way to stay out j
of war is to be amply prepared for j
it, a proposition that will not stand !
up under the critical scrutiny of a j
No Need for Big Navy
“To get down to cold hard facts,”
Ha per said, “the United States has
strategically speaking, a stronger
navy than Great Britain right now.
A nation having as many widely
scattered posts to defend as England
lias, needs a much larger navy than
ve have to l)e on actual parity with
“Prevention of war must bo ac
complished by a gradual evolution
ary process of education and re
form. Bills such as this simply des
troy all the confidence and trust
which other nations have in us.”
Mr. Gavit is inclined to consider
the question more from the political
viewpoint. “The Republican admin
istration is decidedly militaristic in
policy,” he said, “but there is so
much sentiment among its consti
tuency agaitji'iit 'war that Hoover
had to commit himself to a pacifist
“Ho instead of tactfully waiting
until the next session of Congress
before bringing up this bill, tho
party leaders are forced to push it

Hoover may be spared the pain of

Advertising brings to millions, at reasonable prices, com
forts and conveniences that without advertising would be
luxuries that only a few could enjoy.
America is an advertising nation. That is one reason why
the man with' moderate means, here, enjoys more com
fort than most wealthy men abroad.
Because thousands on thousands of people ask for a cer
tain article by name, it is possible for the advertisers to
sell this item at a minimum effort.
It is therefore possible to manufacture and to distribute
this produce as a saving which you share with the ad
vertiser. When you figure the number of these items in
your daily life built by advertising, you can appreciate
that advertising does pay.
