NEW YORK, July 23. The only
sensible way to improvo tho human
race, according to Dr. David Starr
Jordan, president of Stanford uni
versity, is to unify tho divorce laws
of the various states niul enact
stricter marriage laws.
Dr. Jordan is chairman of a eom
uritec of ten educators who arc elab
orating nn hypothesis of human bet
terment by the laws of natural selec
tion. Concerning future human evolution
"The quickest and most direct way
of improving tho rnco is by barring
the unfit from marriage. This is the
only way the evils of heredity can
be eliminated. Working along these
lines, the divorce laws must be made
uniform and the marriage 'relation
placed in a different light. This will
take time, but it is the only solution
of nn enormous problem."
Dr. Jordan also expressed an em
phntiQ opinion of womnn suffrage.
