Einstein, the German mathem-
atician, acclaimed the greatest
scientific mind since Newton, is
coming to America to do research
work at the California Institute
There are no national boundar-
ies to knowledge. Science is inter-
national. The discoveries of every
man of science are at the disposal
of the whole world.
Germany led the world in sci-
entific research for nearly a cen-
tlr.r Now the leadershi hasn
come to us. In another hundred
years it may be the Japanese or
the Australians who are astonish-
ing the world with their discov-
eries. It makes no difference.
Truth is truth, wherever found.
An old man stood on the White
House steps the other day and
waved his baton while the Presi-
dent of the United States stood by John H. Bankhead U. S. Senat
his side and drank in the music
which John Philip Sousa drew
from the band which he had made
famous years ago.
It used to be said of America
that we were not a musical nation.
Nobody can say that today. Sousa
came along at a time when mus-
ical taste was at its lowest ebb in
the United States and wrote thet
stirring marches that will never
die, with which his name and the
fame of the Marine Band will for-
ever be associated. The nation
hailed him as its greatest com-
poser. That was never true, but he
was the greatest popularizer of
music, back in the 1880's and
1890's, and he was without doubt,
the greatest band leader the world
had ever seen up to then.
Maulana Muhammad Ali re-
minded the British Grovernment
the other day that if England had
listened to Edmund Burke she
never would have lost America,
and warned the reaction-aries of
the British Empire that unless
they listened to him and his as-
sociates they would lose India.
For the first time in history, all
castes, religions ad factions of the
complex civilization of India uni-
ted to demand, without mincing
words, that their country shall
have the same right of self-gov-
ernment, the same status as mem-
bers of the British Commonwealth
of Nations, as Canada, Australia,
South Africa and the rest of the
former colofiies now enjoy.
Representatives of India and of
the Empire are sitting in on "round
table" conferences in London, try-
ing to decide India's fate. The
reports of this gathering read as
if the pages of history had been
turned back a hundred and fifty-
five years, to the time when dele-
gates from this side of the Atlan-
tic informed the ministers of King
George III of the temper of the
American colonists. The ministers
of George V are more likely to lis-
ten than did those of his great-
The estate of Thomas Fortune
Ryan will pay $17,379,291 to the
State of New York and $4,382,072
to the Federal Government. There
will still be left somewhat more
than a hundred million dollars,
which is enough for several heirs
to struggle along on.
No tax can be fairer than the
tax on large inherited estates. All
states exempt small estates from
this tax. When a man dies his
property has no owner. In the ab-
sence of heirs it all belongs to
the state. The right to pass it on
by will is a privilege granted by
the state, and not an inherent right
Most states prescribe what a man
may do by will. The heirs are en-
titled, by custom, to reasonable
the Miami Jewish Orthodox Cong
participation, but have no right
to complain if the state steps in
and takes a large share out first
for the benefit of all the people
For no great fortune is accumulat-
ed except by the participation, di-
rectly or indirectly, of all the
The keel was laid the other day
for the largest passenger ship ever
constructed in the United States.
[t will be 705 feet long and will
carry 1,300 passengers across the
Atlantic in less than six days. It
is to be followed by another ship
of the same size.
These new ships will not be the
largest passenger craft carrying
the American flag. Nor will our
new first-call liners compare with
the new ships which Germany,
France and Great Britain have
just built or are building.
It is a shortsighted policy which
lets our Government be contented
to build less magnificently than do
our rivals on the sea. For these
new craft, like those of other na-
tions, are built with Government
subsidies. Perhaps the Shipping
Board and the officials at Wash-
ington thought they would not
have public support if they spent
too much money on the new ships.
In that, as in almost everything
else the Shipping Board has done,
they are wrong. The American
people will back any really magni-
ficent expenditure with prideful
enthusiasm, but it has never been
interested in economy or in second-
All the reports from those who

Wickersham Commission, will re-

There will be more serious at-
