A California fanner faces a long term in jail
because he thinks high school is a place where
boys and girls learn to drinlp gamble and forge
checks. He believes it so thoroughly that he refuses
to seud his two boys to high school -and therefore
incurred displeasure of the county superintendent
who apparently believes a father with such opinions
a vicious criminal. He said lie' would do his best
to keep the man in jail all winten
We think the father is unduly alarmed about
the evil that boys and girls learn in high school.
It is regrettably true that a great many things are
sometimes learned by the pupil which aren’t in the
school curriculum. But they are things which are
learned as well by boys and girls who don’t go to
high school. If there is any difference it should
be in favor of the high school. The pupil with real
intelligence must absord some impressions from his
advanced learning of the value to himself of play­
ing the game of life cleanly and decently.
Nevertheless as between the father with his
unreasonable fear of the vicious influence of high
school and the superintendent with his intolerance
of such an attitude the father’s position seems to
be the more admirable. He at least is willing to let
others run the risk he thinks they take without ap­
pealing to force to prevent it.

Queen Marie arrived last week to pay u> a
visit. Quite naturally, she is monopolising the front
pages, for she is an interesting woman. That line
al>out sisters under the skin should be revived
for Marie of Rumania. On her visit to this coun­
try she reveals herself not so much the queen as
the weinan. Past 50 years of age, she has had her
hair bobbed, a shingle bob followed by a permanent
, '
Royalty has become tolerable since the myth of
divine anointment was discarded, and a throne is
worth having when those who sit upon it cap hold
their place through popular favor. That Ferdinand
and Marie still wear crowns is ip no «mall measure
due to this queeu who is so thoroughly feminine
We admire her for her war work, we respect her
for using all the gifts of her personality to win
world-wide friendship for her people; but if we come
to love her during her visit to this country, it will
l>e because we understand her as a woman.
Certainly all mothers can sympathize with this
mother whose eldest son is a bad boy who has
thrown away his royal heritage for an adventure
with a redheaded woman. The mothers will ap­
preciate her worries with a group of marriageable
daughters for whom she must make good matches.
How disappointed must she be in the son-in-law who
sat upon the throne of Greece but couldn’t hold the
fickle affections of the Athenians. Then there is
Ferdinand himself, allegedlly the weak tool of
scheming politicians. These are problems common
not only to queens, but to wives and mothers every­
