One of them was that of banker-^high-powered banker, as the saying is, of the essence of Wall Street, * man who had : a prominent seat smonsr the money-changers and used it as such seats are meant to be used. The other was that of patron pf the arts, a position not unlike Unit of the grandees of Rena.tes»uc» Italy— who, it might be remembered, x'so led double lives, enriching Iheniseh'C* w.ith one hand and playing the magmtko i-ith the other. • » « •= It is in this second role that. mast of us were familiar with Mi'. Kahn's name. He was a mainspring in the •'..activities of the great metropolitan Opera, House; he sincerely i\\u\ honestly loved fine music antt the other arts; he gave substantial ewowf ageweut to practitioners of those arts; and, altogether, -he teft hi» country somewhat richer, in those respects, than lie found 'it ; ' -; /', ' Yet tt\is very ; liard to say r^, , in the life offlrf'.lffiieTthi» > roio «CTttaN ly outweighed the other — that of hiif- shot banker. • For the Otto Kahn of \V«H Street Vas Another man, ami those of MS who liv« ; oMtsid* of New York m\ have Utt\e or nothing to «l» with the money market si of the nietropotts s-t' so :fsmir wr with hiTO- ' .

And . so you have the contrast ; uii the one liaml, tlio jHili-on of Hit; "rls, the man who helped lo iniike Americ«n life richer and fujlor—and, on tli« other, the money changer, a leader in that class whose leadership has been so profoundly tailed into <jucM.ion of hilc. How ;irc you noinjr to slrikc a balance lictwcun (he two roles? Cation. by as- foreign Neutrality in War Time U you insist that your country keep out of war, you must IK: prqwral to assume niiiicciistomeil burdens and to yield rights you have been used to as- .scrt. So warns Dr. Charles Wan-en, as- sirtUuil attorney general in the Wilson administration, in a recent di of the problem of neutrality. He illustrates his warning serting that iii the case of a war we could insure our neutrality only by passing .stringent laws and enforcing them rigidly. Such laws, he says, should permit tlic. prosidt!iit to prohibit, till sales of munitions- to belligerents -should forbid the shipment of munitions qn United States'" ships, and should forbid the dotation in this country of Joanj; for belligerents. Suoh laws, as ho snys, would be rather irksome.- • Rut h« is probably (Hiitc right in asserting that they would be the price of Uuo neutrality in any large-scale future war.

The thliiij that should depress one is Hint a prominent, group Uirongli their president assailed the governor's prupOiilEon to limit the subjects lo be taught in the grammar grades to reading, wrll- Infi, aritlimctlc, spelling, English grammar and composition. United Stales history, geography, physi ology, hygiene and elementary science. In making the objection this niiuagc was used, viz, "The Irou- ))le with us is thai *-e are <loing ! horse nnd uugg thinking in an i automobile age." Could anything be more irrelevant to the issue- coming, too, (rom a group presuming to lead in education. Neither tlie horse and buggy age. nor the automobile age, has Ihe least to do with such subjects, as the governor has listed for the grammar grades, lor they nre essentials in any age. We can't put any less stress ui:on the fact that the earth Ls round because It was first pronounced by Copernicus even before the horse and buggy age. . The danger lo Ihe schools is! lhai this attitude of mind may exert some Influence. Certainly it all depends upon what is taught, and how well it is taught, neither jioes method count for much.
