Keeping A mcricaus 'Free and Equal' More than. 260 years ago, Thomas Jefferson decreed thai "all men avc created free and equal," and on those words a nation was launched. The Jetrursonian conception of equality has been modified from lime to time, but, above everything, the meaning that the Colonial patriot meant to convoy was Unit the nation he helped found must be kept free of castes in I he sense that they existed in (he old world. His idea was to establish a nation devoid not only of earls and barons and feudal landowners but also of all the shackles and evils for which class society. stood. Today that tradition is being menaced, President James R. Comml of Harvard University recently told those participating in the 72nd birthday observance of Hie University of California at Los Angeles. Dr. Conanl conceded that modem college youngsters ;u-c inclined to sneer at the phrase, "equality of opportunity." It is up to the universities to make some, revolutionary changes in their methods of preparing young folks for adulthood, the educator said. The idea of a casteless nation must lie revitalized, given new impetus in colleges, he maintained. But is it enough merely to preserve the ideal? Isn't American society as a whole largely responsible for preserving the equality tradition by .-giving the youngsters with their brand- new diplomas a chance to use the tilings they learned in school? How can anyone assure the hopeful graduate a job when the existence of from 8 to 12 million unemployed remains an uncomfortable- reality? Educators can do their p;ivt in renovating the school system to meet the needs of a new, technological America, It's up to those of us not in college to find a way to.make use of this new talent. When we do, the idea of equality will become a living thing. It won't need to be pumped inlo anyone.

Thousands of people felt cheaU ed of (he opportunity to display new finery in outdoor "parading" which has become a real feature of a day devoted properly to move serious things. In Cleveland, therefore, a movement has been begun lo set April 2.1 us a "Spring Parade" day, on wlucb all llioso. , disappointed on the true holiday will step out in their now bibs-and4nckerK anyway.

THURSDAY, AHRIL -4, wo Propaganda Hither the Urifish government has a puor press agent or llicro are molivc.s behind the Graf Spec mutiny story which Americans can never appreciate. As it stands, there are only two interpretations of the incident: 1. is true that the N;«i sailors. mutinied, which is unlikely, the British deliberately detract from what has so far been regarded as the most glorious victory for His Majesty's llnet. 2. If false, then nobody can believe anything that (lows from British propaganda sources. Every story will be suspected as phony. '" Under either: circumslancu.s, ^'tiiti-.

On all sides oj him men were gelling out o£ bed but Kolso drew his blankels up closer to his chin. When he looked up again the uijj fellow was standing over him, grinning. "C'inon buttercup.

Duffy sal up, groaning again. "Why can't they U.Ik English?" he asked Pop Grimes. "It's like being in u foreign country somewhere, only much worse." He turned to Cavalier. "What time is three bells?" 'Tivc thirty," Eddie fold him. •"llow'd you know that?" Kelso inquired suspiciously. "I read ;i book once," Eddjo suid sarcastically. "Big words and all." A red-headed seaman came in. "Mi'ya boys," he began. "Hi'ya, Duffy. Gncss you don't remember me, do ya?" Duffy looked at him closely and started. "Mike Kelly! Well, I'll be - ," lie cried, wringing (he red-head's hand. Suddenly he drew his hand back. "What lh' deuce am I doin' shaking . hands with', you," lie growled. "You're part o' this mob, ain't you?" Kelly grinned, disregarding Kclso's last remark. "Ain't seen you since—since that ijjghl in ihc Garden." "Yeah," Duffy agreed. "As I recall, you lay on th' canvas for 10 minutes after Buddy Jones tagged you." "That's why I'm here now," Milce said seriously. "And al least 1 know Ml never be walkin' around on my heels and making funny passes every time a trolley motorman clangs his bell."

Eddie smiled, even before Duffy could voice the ceremonies. "Hello, Mike. I'm not champ yet, thouglj." "You will be, kid," pumping his hand. "I've seen, you go. You can't miss." "Oh, say Mike," Pop Grimes broli? in. "Let's gel down (o a little business. As long ;is we nave to make the best of this mess, what kind of tack you got on board?" Mike raised his hand Fignifi- cantly. "Plenty. Lucky I keep it on hand for me an' th' boys lo putter around wilh. Two .sots o' eight ounce gloves, a light bag, a pair o' bag gloves and a head guard.

"One surprise after ;mql!/er," Eddie Kighed. "First thing we'll do is put up a ring for Mister Cavalier," Val said evenly. "After tliat Kelso and Grimes will join Ilia paint crew. Cavalier can do a lilile of his road work around (he deck and then report back to Captain liansen." Eddie Cavalier glared, "Give ;;ny orders you wish, but don't go forgetting that Pop Grimes is my trainer. He'll make the suggestions about any road work I'll do." "Paint crew," Dully muttered.
