the full harvest of disgrace and pun

while sitting in the President's Cab

a consideration for the lease of Gov

the grim, gray facts of Fall's crim

Fall-Doheny-Sinclalr scandals were
exposed and, though the processes of
Justice have been exasperately slow,
the outcome has been an impressive
victory for honesty In public office.
Doheny alone of the three main con
spirators has escaped the ignominy of
a criminal conviction. Sinclair is in
a jail cell. And now the man through
whom they corrupted the Govern

felon. Finally, the valuable Teapot

It becomes appropriate, now that
the worst Government scandal since

Robert M. La Follette. It was that
modern Rienzi who tore the veil
from the oil Bcandals and revealed
their putridity to a nation loath to
believe what they saw. He was forced
to work against the most powerful
and persistent opposition that ever
confronted an investigator, and he
accomplished his task despite a pub
lic apathy that must have crushed
any man who lacked La Follette's
great fighting heart.

in a melancholy vein, on the British
Labor Government's refusal to grant
asylum to Leon Trotzky, who seems
to be persona non grata everywhere.
It was not a criticism, in the usual
acceptance of that term, but gen
uine regret that a great British trad
ition has disappeared a tradition
which had inspired admiration for
England tmong liberals the world
over. It was an epitapn on UDerai
ism, not on British liberalism alcne.
but on that fine quality of humanity
which had distinguished England.
The world said, on effect, that the
age of liberalism is dying, and frank

A London paper, the Star, takes
the world to task .and, in what seems
to us a peculiarly unhappy tu quoque
spirit, asks if the United States would

guilty. We have seen our Govern

and we remember that, in a braver
day, we welcomed and acclaimed that
other Hungarian, Kossuth.
