But, of course, all opponents of the
treaty are not brutish, though that
type is powerfully represented among
its leading antagonists. Most of them
are partisan politicians. Some of them
are mere backward-lookers who are
not consciously averse to the world's
being bettered, but are quite unable
to imagine its being done. Some men
of great renown in our revolutionary
times were vehement in opposition to
the constitution. Patrick Henry of
"Give me liberty or give me death,"
was one of them; James Monroe, who
gave his name to the Monroe doctrine,
was another; George Mason, after
Washington the first citizen of Vir
ginia, refused to sign it. He thought
it gave too much power to Congress
and the executive. But John Mar Marshall
shall Marshall and James Madison fought for
it, and Virginia finally accepted it, and
in New York Hamilton and Jay won
the fight for it against the Clintons.
Mr. Moorfield Storey began an ad address
dress address in South Carolina last June with
the observation that "civilization is
the process of restraining the will of
the individual law," but the idea of
being restrained is always painful to
the individual and it is hard to get
him to approve of it. He prefers to
restrain someone else. It is the same
way with nations, and that was the
main basis of objection to the consti constitution,
tution, constitution, and is the main objection now
to the League of Nations. But the
constitution, in spite of imperfections,
has been a handy document, and the
League of Nations will be another if
the objecting senators don't burke it.

wanted the league except Mr. Wilson.

Suggestions for a new plan of uni
versal military training, differing
materially from the provisions of
both the administration and Chamber-
in-Kahn bills now before the govern
ment, are outlined in a statement by
the National Guard Association of the
United States issued today through
tho National Security League in its
information service on universal
The statement, which was prepared
by the organization committee of the
National Guard Association, of which
Colonel John B. Rose, of New York
city is chairman, definitely disposes
of the erroneous impression that has
arisen that the National Guard Asso
ciation is opposed to universal train
ing. The proposed plan, moreover,
would obviate the maintenance of a
larsre standing army, making the
national guard the basis of the na
tion's military strength, and provide
for the instruction of the youth of the
country in military matters without
long periods spent in training camp.
The statement and outline of plan
"Universal military training is de
manded by a great majority of the
people of the United States, for two,
"First: Because it is a necessary
step toward national preparedness,
and at the same time is the fairest

training for the youth, they are
strongly opposed to a great standing
aimy, and to the inauguration of any
policy which fosters militarism.

them the benefit of military training,
which will build up. their bodies,
quicken their minds, instill within
them a deep sense of their obligations
to their country, and to any opportu
nity that may be offered them for
patriotic service; but do not let us
tempt them to go into the regular
army and adopt as their career the
life of the professional soldier.
"Let us train all of our boys, and
let us have this fine spirit which wil
weld them together into a great, effic
ient fighting force for any emergency
which would make necessary the mob
ilization of a great army; but let
them become a part of the civil life
which produces and creates, and does
not sap out and destroy the spiri
which made America a great nation.
"No one can successfully contend
that this is not a fair statement o
what the people of this country want
but the question naturally arises how
are they going to obtain military pre preparedness,
