Alarmists Say Japanese Plan
To Answer U. S. Maneuvers
Washington NEA Service, by Charles P. Stewart
Militarists, who abound here, are
all excited over reports that Japan’s
reply to the United States’ Ha
waiian naval maneuvers is to be
a set of maneuvers of her own, to
show how easily she could beat
such a fleet as this country’s—of
course in Far Eastern waters.
It Isn’t likely the Japanese think
they could defeat America anywhere
in the vicinity of the latter’s home j
shores. Possibly they don’t think I
they can defeat her at all. That
idea may be merely a complex some
people have got.
* * *
The expected Japanese maneuvers
are said to be scheduled for May 27.
This makes the Washington militar
ists’ complex worse. May 27 is the
anniversary of the Battle of Tsush
ima, in which Japan’s fleet destroyed
Russia’s, just 20 years ago.
“An apt reminder,” say the mili
tarists, “of the great sea fighters
the Japanese are and how necessary
it is to be ready for them.”
* * *
With all due respect for Japan’s
courage and not disputing she can
lick any fleet in the state of dis
repair Russia’s was in, the truth
is that the Japanese are known
among seafaring men as poor ship
builders, bad sailors and perfectly
impossible hands in an engine room.
• * •
The classic example of Japan’s
shipbuilding is that one of her crack
16.000-ton passenger liners, well
known on the Pacific and still in
service—with the Lord only know3
what weight of concrete and pig
iron in her hold, to keep her keel
This craft’s sister ship, which
preceded her, was built in England.
Her Japanese owners tried her out
satisfactorily. Then they told the
English builders they wanted an
other boat but would like to exam
ine the plans first, with a view to
The builders, suspecting the Jap
anese of intending to do their own
building from the English plans,
made certain subtle changes before
handing them over.
Sure enough, the new vessel was
a Japanese product. Launching day
arrived. The ship slid down the
ways, hit the water and instantly
turned bottom side up.
Later she was induced to assume
a more dignified attitude, but it
The Harvard Lampoon.
An assistant postmaster general
has decided to bar the current issue
of the Lampoon, humorous Harvard
publication, from the mails because
it published a picture of the Goddess
of Liberty which was, according to
the assistant postmaster general
not sufficiently draped.
The assistant postmaster general
is right; while Truth is occasionally
portrayed in this country as naked
Liberty is usually heavily veiled and
obscured, and while a dear old girl

took English experts to persuade
her to do it.

Almost all foreign airplane in
structors who have tried to train
Japanese aviators testify to the Im
possibility of developing them into
first-class flying men.
They have courage and ample
intelligence to learn all moves to

exception they lack the instinct of
gentleness with machinery. “Cruel
ly.” treated, it misbehaves.

Japan beat China in 1895. It
looked wonderful but now we know
there were few civilized countries—
even little ones—that couldn't have
done it. She beat Russia—on paper
—but had to accept the best terms
she could get, because in a few
more months she herself would
have been beaten.
She took Kiao Chau from the
Germans but the latter were out
numbered 1000 to 1.

To hear the Washington militar
ists preaching “preparedness,” you’d
think they considered Japan well
But ask them, as experts, what
showing they believe she’d make
against a first-class fighting power,
and their answer Is that nobody
knows—she might perform pretty
creditably, or she might crumple at
the first impact.
Ann Arbor Times News.
Married women will continue to be
employed as teachers in the Bay City
public schools, the board of education
having rejected a resolution to hire
only single ones.
The decision appeals to us as wise.
Education is not a philanthropic in
stitution, intended to provide young
women with positions, it is too big,
too important, too necessary, to be
fettered with silly arbitrary rules.
It is not a mechanical device, which
can be set in operation by moving a
lever. There must be system, but In

ability are the important factors to be j

Fathers and Sons.
From the Philadelphia Public Ledger.
A questionnaire answered by the
senior class at Harvard- reveals
strange reversals of form between
fathers and sons. The number of sons
choosing medicine as a career is
thrice the number of fathers; the
same proportion holds for education.
But only half as many of the younger
generation are electing a career In
business or in tho ministry. The
number intending to adopt the latter
calling is negligible—two students
only. Yet when Harvard was founded,
tho confessed Intent was to supply
learned clergymen when those who
had been trained in England passed
In this land of the free agent and
the elective system, no profession Is a
family transmittendum. There is no
tradition that one son becomes a
soldier or another a clergyman. Twigs
are bent and trees inclined by per
sonal volition. It was the central
tenet of the Eliot creed at Harvard
that a man for his bread-winning oc
cupation should do what pleased him
and not follow an uncongenial pro
fession wished upon him by parental
choice. There are gains and there
are losses in the abrogation of the
old notion of a filio-paternal partner
ship. It is a fine thing to find a
business heritage linked through the
years by descent In a family; pride
in the accumulated prestige and good
Will Is an asset of demonstrable value.
But a young man leaving college
ought not to be forced miserably into
a lifework for which he Is unsuited
for the poor reason that his father
was engaged in it before him. None
should step into a career, though
ready-made, unless it fits him.
Sixty Years From the Ashes.
Richmond News Leader.
The 60 years-that have passed since
the departure of the troops and tho
beginning of the fire of April 2, 1865,
are, but the instant of a firefly’s
flashing in the long, long night of
history that lies behind. Yet there
probably are not 200 people now liv
ing in Richmond who remember the
full horror of a catastrophe the last
marks of which, economic and social,
are being effaced. The city that sat
in the ashes Is richer today in this
land of youthful recuperation than
men once dreamed she would be In
1925 as capital of a new confederacy.
No wonder wars recur where men
forget and die and nature covers up
and labor replaces loss. If only men
could transmit their memory of war
before it gathers glamour!

Tho tomb of Edgar Allen Poe in
the graveyard of Westminster church,
in Baltimore, has been placed In the
care of the Baltimore Press Club. The
grave had been neglected of late be
cause the Edger Allen Poe Association,
which had been caring for it, was with
out funds. An offer by the Press Club
to maintain the tomb as a literary
shrine was accepted and a transfer
of obligations made by the Presby
terian committee, of Baltimore, owners
of the burying ground.
