As we A m e r i c a n s look a t LIII-13 t h e w a r situation in E u r o p e t h e outlook f o r an early peace seems to be g e t t i n g m o r e a n d more remote. Each side seems determined to c a r r y t h e w a r to an end, and it now is a question of which can hold out longer.

NEGOTIATED PEACE NOT POSSIBLE Both Great Britain and France want this w a r to end in a decisive victory and not in a negotiated peace (an attitude which can be easily understood). The t r e a t y of Versailles was signed before the people of Germany realized that their army had been defeated. Now Hitler and his aides point to the unfair t r e a t m e n t of Germany b> the treaty. If peace could be negotiated tomorrow, the German people twenty years from now would be raising the same cry: that they were treated unfairly. The one g re a t objective of Germany is to dominate Europe. The only terms on which she could afford to make peace would be those which would leave her in fuli control of the continent of Europe. The idea that her people have been t a u g h t to believe is that a certain race is superior in every way to other races, and that t h a t race, therefore, is entitled to special rights and advantages. Civilized peoples had gone a long way towards ridding their thinking of this idea when Hitler revived it with his Nordic myth. T . S. P R E S S U R E GROUPS F A I L All around us we see a steady p r e s s u r e of propaganda being brought to bear upon the people of this country in an effort to divide it into antagonistic racial groups. So far, the common sense of the American people has resisted these efforts to stir up racial prejudices. It is hard to see how we, as a democratic country, could gain anything by taking an active part as a fighting force in this war. There is no point in any nation's going to war unless it stands in danger of losing something precious by not fighting or gains something by fighting. England and France are both receiving a great deal of help, in the way of munitions and airplanes, from America. If Germany could come and get war materials and pay cash for them we would have to do the same with her. However, it is impossible for her to do t h a t ; but, with characteristic German logic, the Germans are accusing America of discriminating against them.

Colleges attached to large universities a r e failing almojt completely to give t h e i r students a liberal education. Mortimer J . Adler, professor at t h e University of Chicago, told a meeting of the S t u d e n t council's committee on Liberal Education at H a r v a r d university recently. Adler did not except Chicago from his radical criticism of the university-college s y s t e m , a n d stated that almost everything for which Chicago is famous, including the survey course system, was an educational failure. His attack on the present set-up hit mainly the narrow and unreal division of subjects into departpartments, the bad effects of close relations between the post-graduate and undergraduate sections on the liberal arts college, and the "research" criterion for academic promotion. The necessity of early and frequent scholarly publication was making the supposed teacher a mere specialist, he said. Lauds St. Johns Claiming that students who finish the "introductory g e n e r a l " courses at Chicago h&ve at best a "superficial i n d o c t r i n a t i o n " in courses' contents, Adler remarked that the five courses advocated by the Student council to give a "common content" to education at Harvard would turn into reading courses, similar to the St. John's " g r e a t books" plan, if the ideals back of them were logically followed out.
