The participation of the federal government in the domestic school affairs of the various States, except through grant of federal funds to be distributed through local Channels, is something this writer has been opposed to bitterly and uncompromisingly. ' If the opening paragraph of our editorial appears to commend the Commission on Education we have led you astray. The Commission has only reflected the tremendous swing of public opinion against the f ederalization program in education—and being aware that the tide cannot be stemmed, they Sre willing to take, if not a Cabinet Member with full powers, then a Cabinet Member with "advisory" powers, whose office may be expanded at some later and more favorable day. , The tenacity with which extremists among our public educators cling to this idea of a federal system is explained by the natural drift of the functions of the state governments toward the larger and more powerful central government. But where one such drift has been beneficial, another has proved harmful—and all have contributed to that parallelism in federal and state activities by which the taxpayers have been loaded down with obsolete bureaus and useless expense. We have seen the decline and fall of the original powers of the Department of Agriculture and the Railroad Commissions of the various States, as the corresponding agencies in the federal government took over their duties—and the federal government in these instances has functioned more ef- 6f national farm i control. But ficiently than the states; yet, what state has abolished the salaries and bateau expenses that were Ifitis made obsolete? Communication lines and the hafldHjT '* " ' stapled may be successful subjects $*:«__ in great moral reforms touching the intimate^ life 6f private citizens, the federal government's r«jtJttfd has been one oi unbelievable incompetence and faUute; Education is the most local problem: that any government has to contend with. It, of all conceivable Activities, is the Iftdt one whose administration should be removed more than A few hours from possible sources of misunderstanding and friction. It is generally accepted today that where roads and money peimt.t, the public schools may be centered;around the county-unit system of administration. Gradually we are coding to appreciate the necessity of averaging-Up district and county school revenues so that financially the schools operate as a state-wide unit. The State Revolving Fund is contributing valuable assistance toward this end. But to visualize .the schools of America operating as a natioh-wide unit* one has to cross the dangerous line between state' and federal governments, and conflicting sectional tradition. There are some people, of course, who would like to see all Americans poured into one mould, ^peaking tne same identical idiom, and wearing the same inflexible national manner that tight little European CoUntries^are supposed to. They are, in brief, the. sort of people who would have Carried an armload of dog-Latin back-to the River liber and forced it down the throats of the Romans. It seems to us that indeed education suffers at the hands of its/fanactics the same indignities and barbarous practices which brought division, revolution and defeat upon Medieval Churchi ' When educational leaders grow abstract and look away towafd the national capital, it is safe to presume that like tne enthusiasts of every age, they are neglecting the task at hand to 'dream of the nebulous future, which for all its rosy hue will lio doubt be as troublesome as the Present and Past combined,—W. the Lest We Forget—Roses Have Their Thorns Abolishing Mexico's Navy RECENT-d'ispatch from Mexico City indicates that the , MexicaR government is considering abandoing Its navy fciraly.

Alcohol Kills Five In Drinking Party Poisonous Drink Blamed for Sudden Deaths at Borger BORGER, Tex.—Poisonous alcohol consumed at week-end parties was believed to have been responsible for the death of five men. Four of the victims, police said, had been drinking in their apartment Sunday night. An empty can, labelled as a container for automobile radiator alcohol, was found in the apartment. The other mnn died from what physicians identified us wood alcohol poisoning. The four men in the apartment party became violently ill about 9 p. m. Sunday. Thomas find Whitaker died en route to a hospital and Ward succumbed a few hours later. Mockey lived until Monday morning. Badglcy died early Monday at his home. He was survived by his widow and four children. Coroner J. D. Miller said he would conduct an inquest, but that he was almost certain his verdict in the case if the four men would be death from. i alcoholic poisoning.
