That the proposed bill is causing
widespread interest throughout ' the
entire United States and that it is
drawing comment from the country's
foremost educators, none of whom,
thus far, has been favorable to its pro
visions, is the declaration of Mr. Hill.
.Adverse criticism has been receiv
ed from Nicholas Murray Butler, presi
dent of Columbia university, who con
cluded his letter by saying:
"This bill should be entitled 'A bill
to make impossible the American
system of education in Oregon.' It is
fundamentally un-American in its prin

"The task of educating all the chil
dren of America is great enough to
make right thinking men welcome the
co-operation of every proper private

the University of Texas.
Harry Pratt Judson, president of
the University of Chicago, says he
believes the proposed law would "vio
late fundamental r(ights of American
citizens with regard to the education
of their children."
"It certainly looks like an attempt
to give the majority of the people a
dangerous power to restrict the dif
fusion of truth which it wishes to
suppress," is the way Arthur Had
ley, president of Yaie university, sizes
up the bill's provisions.
"These comments are by unpreju
diced men of the highest standing,
who have no Interest other than the
public interest," naid Mr. Hill. "It
is a good sideligh on the local sit
uation from unbiased sources."
