Territorial Paradox It is an odd duvclupniunl thai in Hie Philippines, soon to be imUiiximl- enl, ICnglisli lias (wen adopted as tliu official litnguiige,' while in tlie solidly American territory of I'uerlo Hieo, Spanish lias taken the iiliicc of Knglisli us tho accepted medium of instruction in elementary schools. The Puerto Kkans speak Spanish from the cradle upward. Efforts Jiavu been made to conduct the fleineiiliiry schools biling'ually, with English mid Spanish n.-rcd side by side. Now, however, the instruction is to lie solely iu Spanish, with instruction in English reserved for high schools. But in the I'hilippincs, English is the only language thoroughly diffused throughout the islands. Spanish is the language of |xjlile society-? English is the language in which business is conducted. The Filipinos Ihcinsels'es haw voted to make English the official tongue. So the American territory will .speak Spanish, and thu independent Philippines will continue To "Viilk"Amurii:un^-!. Let Diplomats Protest ft is not exactly surprising that a number of foreign governments have issued protests against Urn revelations that have been made before the senate munitions investigating committee. Witnesses have shown how statesmen worked' hand in glove with mwtitions lirms,, how highly placed r politicians in- virioiiit lands took bribes, anil how • very exalted [>ersomiges were not above playing the game for the armaments makers. The protests, then, are only natural; but they are not, after all, any skin off the hides of the senate investigators. The American people want to know all they can about the devious ins and ouls of this rather shocking traffic. The senators are doing a fine job of finding out for them. If the revolutions! pain important people, at home or abroad—well, that's just too bad. Room JOT Leniency The stalemate which has held up Soviet-American negotiations for settlement of all those old debts and coutlnues unbroken. So far, no very definite details about it have been road* public; all that can be ascertained itt that the two nitkms are finding it impossible to come to an agreement— and until they do llw hoped-for revival of Russian-American trade cannot begin. Some of the debt is accounted for by loans made to the ill-fated Kerensky government, just before the liolshcvik revolution. The rest is made up of private claims for property lost or destroyed <lm-ing the upheaval. ' It is worth considering whether the United States would not bo wise to adopt an exceedingly lenient attitude in connection with these claims. If Kussia is prepared to buy heavily from American manufacturers once a debt .settlement is reached, we may lie losing more than we gain by holding out for a full settlement. Avoids Trouble The I'Jnglish seem In have 1 borough knowledge of the way in which I'TO' siieech serves as a valuable social .'iiife- ly valve. Kritish Fascists had a big mass meeting in London's Jlyde Park I he other day. Thousands of Fascists paraded; thousands of their sympathizers gathered to ehccr them; thousands upon thousands of bitter foes of Fascism gathered to heckle them—and, finally, five thousand lobbies were present In see that no blood was spilled. There are civic authorities who would have liwn alarmed at such a demonstration and would have ordered all speeches called off and all mobs dispersed, to prevent trouble. But not the British. They let everybody- talk. The bobbies had little or nothing to do. 'No head's were'brokeiir -no 'noses -were punched, and everybody went home happy after it was over. l>y letting the discontented talk their heads off, the British very frequently escape serious trouble.
