What Educators Say
Opinions of nationally known educators upon the proposed
Oregon compulsory school law are interesting for nearly all
disapprove of the principle and its inevitable result.
President Arthur Hadley of Yale university says :
In general I dislike to eipresa an opinion on legislation which
ia pending other state.; but an examination of th. Jpr.
on page 21 of th. pamphlet which you hare ent m. lead, me to
think it an unwise and unnecessary infrlngment of Individual ni brt y.
It certainly look, like an attempt to gire the majority of t", people a
dangerous power to restrict the diffusion of truth which it wishes
to suppress. ' .
Dr Edward T. Devine, assistant editor of The Survey,
former executive secretary of the New York Charity Organ
ization Society, former profesor at Columbia University, and
author and nationally known lecturer, says :
'It Is extraordinary that the promoters of a law. the alleged pur
pose of which is to prevent groups, divisions and cliques, should
admit that the Inspiration for it comes from the resolution, of a
secret order. The American Nonsectarian public school system w 11
continue to compete successfully with parochial and private schools.
It needs no eompulsory monopoly. The state should up"189 "
enools, examine and certify teachers, and insure that children are
taught fundamentals. It should not set up a monopoly or Interfere
with complete freedom of education. The interests of the public
schools require free competition, free experiment, and free criticism.
Dr. Frank Aydelote, president of Swarthmore College and
nationally known educator, says :
"It la our joint opinion that this proposal to force all the children
of the state out of the schools conducted by religious denominations
and private agencies into the public elementary schools cannot be
uccessfully defended on any ground. Its advocates have a very good
purpose In mind the general adoption of a public school in which
all future citizens shall be educated together but American exper
ience baa shown, In my opinion, that they are going about It in the
wrong way. To force adherence to the public school merely adds
life to the worst forms of sectarianism. There to no surer way to
secure persistent denominatlonallsm than such a form of persecution.
DrRoy Lyman Wilbur, president of Stanford University,
says : . ' , .'
"While I believe In the compulsory education oX all mentally
Bound boys and girls up to the age of fifteen or sixteen, it seems to
me both unwise and unfair to require that this education be given
only in state supported schools. There Bhould be a free option for
parents to educate their children either at home or In private schools
properly supervised and Inspected by the state."
Dr. Robert E. Vinson, president of the University of
Texas and a southern educator of note, says :
"The object of the American public school system ia to secure
quality of educational opportunity for every child and to provide an
Intelligent cltixen. It was never Intended to be a substitute for
parental responsibility nor a limitation upon parental privilege.
Whatever real danger exists In certain sorts of private and sectarian
acboola can be dealt with by proper supervision. An undlscrimlnating
protest against sectarianism applies sooner or later to all religion and
the complete sectarixatlon of education Is a graver danger to American
Ideals and Institutions than any we now face. The task of educating
all children of America is great enough to make right thinking men
welcome the cooperation of every proper private and public effort to
this end."
Nicholas Murray Butler, president of Columbia University,
"This bill Is conclusive evidence that Prussian Ideas have dis
placed American Ideals in the mind, of some, at least, of tbe voters
of Oregon. Education is primarily and fundamentally a parental
and family privilege and duty. Tbe parents of a child are responsible
before Uod and man for Its upbringing and its preparation for an
honorable and useful life. It la an essential part of their civil liberty
to train their children In such wise and In such form of religious
faith as they may prefer and choose. In our American theory, the
state steps in, not to monopolise education or to attempt to cast all
children In a common mold, or forcibly to deprive them of all religious
training and Instruction, but merely to prevent damage to itself. It
offer, a free opportunity to every child to receive elementary educa
tion, and usually much more than that, In tax-supported schools
Bat it Is In no sense the business of the state, In our American
political philosophy, to attempt to monopolise education or to pre
vent the freeest choice by parent, of the teachers and schools for
their children.
"This measure la exceedingly dangerous, In that It strikes
directly at the authority and dignity of the family, at religious
training of every sort (Bince tax-supported schools may under no
circumstances offer such training), and at that complete education
Which is the only training worth having.
"If Prussia bad won the great war, this bill 1. precisely the sort
of measure which it would have introduced in every country that
came under Its control.
"This measure should be entitled A Bill to make Impossible the
American System of Education in Oregon. It Is fundamentally un
American In lta principle and purpose, and should be overwhelmingly
Many more opinions from famous men could be given, did
apace permit, but we have given enough to show the view
of the educational world toward this freak measure fathered
by fanatics as a means to political power.
- Bryan On the Bible
William Jennings Bryan is a much better authority on
the bible than he is on either evolution or politics. As a mat
ter of fact he is recognized as the leading lay preacher in
America and his lucid interpretations of the "book of books"
drives home its teachings in the most direct and practical
"" At his home in Florida, during the winter months, Mr.
Bryan conducts the largest bible class in the world, with
an average attendance of 5000 persons. His talks have prov
ed a real stimulus to bible study which has led him to pub
lish them weekly so that all interested might benefit thereby.
With this idea in view, the Capital Journal has arrang
ed With Mr. Bryan to print each Saturday, beginning Sat
urday, October 14, a Bryan bible lecture .which will be an
Inspiration to Salem bible students. Watch for them, be

London. The people of Austria
are hoarding their money; u
would take 10,000,000 pounds to
place Austria on her feet again fi
nancially, yet Austrians have in
Swiss banks an amount estimated
at 18,000,000 pounds.
These statements are contained
In a report made by the British
department of overseas trade- on
the economic condition of Austria.
In summing up the Austrian situ
ation this report says:
"The psychological difficulty is
the prevalent pessimism which in
hibits initiative on the parts of
the Austrians themselves, and
makes them look solely abroad for
salvation. The amount of foreign
credits generally estimated to be
necessary to place Austria on Its
feet again by stabilizing the cur
rency and founding a new bank of
issue is about 10,000,000 pounds
"It is an open secret that, despite
the law to the contrary, very much
larger sums in foreign currencies
than this are hoarded by Aus
trians, both Inside and outside the
country; the amount lying in
Swiss banks alone, has been esti
mated at 18,000,000 pounds.
"But these resources He idle be
cause the owners have no confi
dence in the government or the
future of the country. Probably
both the political and psychologi
cal difficulties can be overcome
most easily by financial assistance
given by foreigners under suitabla
control and conditions. The Aus
trians, however, must show that
they are ready to cooperate by
taking at least the first steps to
put their house , in order them
selves. There 1. some prospect of
this being done at an early date."

Tbe commonwealth has not con

any but birds of paradise and it

Walter Jones' Btory
For a few moments Sheila was
silent. The letter seemed to bring
many painful memories. When she
continued her voice was vibrant
with humiliation and heart-ache.
"Of course," the letter continued,
"I immediately tried to see my
stepmother and my sister,, but they
would have nothing to do with me.
I -was denied my father's house,
the house which now should have
been mine. I was told by a most
auoercilious butler the one that I
had known all my life" had evident
ly been dismissed that if I had
anything to say to Madame or Miss
Jones I should go to tneir attorneys.
"I went. Only to learn that both
my stepmother or my sister insisted
that I had disgraced them by com
ing back; that they wanted noth
ing more to do with me. 1 was ac
cused of .heing a dope fiend, and it
was delicately suggested by the
lawyer that unless I took a check
for $3000 end departed abroad he
would have a guardian appointed
and send me to a psychopathic hospital.
"I tore the check in two, told
him to return it to my stepmother,
by whom it was signed, and then
I sank lower and lower.
"On night when I was skulking
about the docks I saw my sister get
into a launch with a well dressed
man. I hurried forward, trying to
get to her. There was murder
my heart. Sheila. She was happy. I
heard her laugh tinkling on the
cool air and I was shivering while
she was wrapped in sables.
"Fortunately I did not get to her
until she had stepped into the
launch, but the light was full
our faces, and I knew she recognized
me, for she started up in such a
way that she almost fell into the
arms of the man beside her. '.
"I slunk away, and in doing so I
ran into dear old Tony Soper. i have
never been able to make out why
he was meandering around in that
He called me by name, but 1
was ashamed, and did not answer
him, and as he walked on I heard

found a roll of bills.

'He answered, 'No.'

room I sat down to think. I made
up my mind that I would see Su

I was going up to the house the
other evening and as I passed the
Amsterdam theatre I saw her going
. I followed.
"Fortunately in summer time it is
not necessary for a man to be in
evening clothes to gain admittance
to the roof garden, and with one
of the bills I had left from, Tony
Soper's roll I bought a ticket.
"As I stood beside the wall a' man
beside me entered into conversation
with me and pointed out Susanne
and a man whom he called Philip
Spencer, and whom I recognized as
the 'man who had been with har
that night at the dock.
" 'Strange,' said my gossipy
friend, 'how these high rollers man
age things. There's Miss Jones sit
ting with a man who is the hus
band of that pretty girl over at
the other table with three other
people. The woman is Spencer's sis
ter and no one at that table seems
to be on speaking terms with either
Spencer or Susanne Jones."

'Well, Sheila, it looks as though

fell from her relaxed hands to the
floor and her face dropped for
