In the old days it was fairly simple. The speaker had only to net tip and begin telling the yuun^sUTs aliunl the . innumerable 1 opportunities that were ahead of them, and how html work and honesty would briny I heir inevitable reward. Then, when he .saw tlio yonnj;iT members of the class Celling restless, he could shut it oil' mi:! sit down, contented. Hut of late years it lias been different. Opportunities for young have been anything but innumerable. .during the last three or four years. There are plenty of youni: men in America today who gnl llieir diplomas four years ago \vho luiven'l been able to get jobs since then — although many of "them needed jobs very badly, since their fathers were out of work. Nor have hard work and honesty carried llieir u. ; ual premiums. It's all very well to talk about them, but when a depression forces your employer out of business and your job dissolves beneath, you. you're left holding the sack just as if you had been a time-server and a eonnivcr. Of course, things are bettor now. There is reason to hoi>c that they will be even better a year from now. But the commencement, speaker is still on the spot. .v * * ' * Perhaps bis best course would simply be to go hone.- 1 and say something like this: "1 have a lot of crust, addressing yon youngsters, because yon can't help seeing that my generation just doesn't know bow to run the ' country decently. '. "Sonio of yon will find jobs, if yon'iv ! lucky; the rest will sit around the \ hon~c and wonder what it's all annul. ;• I don't min:l telling yon thai I've been ; wondering the same thing for several • years.

President Roosevelt has just signed the Logan bill, which repeals the former requirement thai army, navy and marine corps olt'icers stick lo their posts at least three years when assigned lo duly at tropical stations, and mils the length of their tour of duty up lo discretion of the president. Evidence heard by a committee, says a senate report, showed that "because of the conditions, climatic, social, and otherwise, prevailing in the various foreign service shitions," Ihe minds of officers were .-trained so badly that a considerable: mimbur went violently insane. Now it will l>u possible to fowl the tro|)ics lo (he officers in smaller doses. And an old theory, beloved of novelists, i-. congrossionally confirmed.
