VON HOLLWEG'S DREAM
OF SCHOOL COMES TRUE
BERLIN. Dee. J J. (A. P.) A Ger
man school of-political science, the
dream of the former Chancellor, Dr. i
Von Bethmann-Hollweg, long before
the world war, at Inst has been estab-!
lished In Berlin. The dedication of ;
the new school was made the occasion
for much congratulatory talk by high
German officiate who expressed the
opinion that a line of statesmen
would be developed by the new institu
tion to direct the progress of the Ger
man republic toward Its former high
place among the nations.
Foreign Minister Simons in an ad
dress declared German statecraft had
always lacked trained leaders thor
oughly schooled In political science and
tor that reason the people had had
small faith In their officials. He
hoped that the new school would help
establish such a faith.
Plans are to operate the school along
the lines of the Scole Libre de Sciences
