He was a lecturer at French unverstes n , and has wrtten the followng characterzaton of the French people: "Durng my sojourn n the French provnces durng the year before the War,. wrote repeatedly to frends that the French were the most earnest, serous people had ever lved among. Whence had sprung the dea of a frvolous people, gven to levty, dle wt and persflage? Partly t was due, perhaps, to the character of mere passng epochs n French hstory, partly to travelers' mpressons of Parsan boulevards, and, n part, to mpressons drawn from badly-selected lterature, whch pctured the worst and not the best, or even the characterstc n French lfe. But wh'atever the prejudce n the past, the world now sees, when France stands at the hghest level of her moral attanment, how baseless was the charge of decadence." At a beneft for the Hartford Chapter of the Red Cross, held n Center Church House last Frday nght, Dr. Odell Shepard, James J. Goodwn Professor of Englsh Lterature, gave readngs of "Solder Verse." No. 22 HARTFORD, CONN., TUESDAY, APRL 16,1918 UNT OF RESERVE OFFCERS' CORPS FORMED COLONEL COWLES SUCCEEDS CAPTAN DAVS.

Dr. Luther recognzng the fact that the country mght have to call on the men n colleges before the war had ended, allowed no one to be excused from servce unless for physcal unftness. Captan J. H. Kelso Davs, '99, who was n command of Troop B durng the Mexcan trouble, was placed n charge. He was asssted by Captan Fred W. Prnce, Leutenant Harold G. Hart, and Sergeant Raymond Dexter, of the Connectcut Home Guard. Although Trnty faculty members have aded n the tranng of the embryo offcers, Trnty professors had not had the work exclusvely to themselves. One of the most nterestng and nstructve of the courses was that gven by Major T. B. Merrman of Harvard Unversty, who had seen servce n France and who s assocated wth Colonel Paul Azan of the French army, now tranng the Harvard men.

ATHLETC RELATONS WTH WESLEYAN RESUMED ANNOUNCEMENT MADE AT UNDERGRADUATE MEETNG. BASEBALL TEAM TO BE FORMED. SPRNG DAY PLAN APPROVED. Trnty has resumed athletc relaton wth Wesleyan. The expote of the latest development of Trnty propaganda was made at a college meetng held Thursday evenng n the College Unon by Captan Davs, '99. t was receved wth great applause, as the sentment of the stu-dent body has generally been more or less pacfstc toward Wesleyan. Steps were taken mmedately to ncrease the sze of the baseball squad n antcpaton of a comng contest wth Trnty's old rval. The college meetng, n charge of Presdent Walter G. Smyth of the College Senate, was one of the most enthusastc held ths year. t start-. ed off wth "There's a College on the Hll", followed by a short address by Dr. Luther, who stressed the mportance of athletcs under exstng condtons. Captan Davs then s-poke of the present condtons of tjhe Athletc Assocaton and suggested a commttee of fve to undertake ts reorganzaton. On hs recommendaton the followng men were elected to serve on the commttee to collect dres and to act as- a nomnatng board for several offces now vacant: E. M. Hyland, as secretary-treasurer of the A. A.; W. G. Smyth as presdent of the College Senate; H. T. Barber, as Manager of Track;. E. Partrdge, as Manager of Baseball; and H. W.

Wesleyan has selected E. Kent Hubbard, Trnty, '92, as ther referee and Trnty has apponted Col. W. H. Hall of Wllngton as ther representatve. Captan Davs closed hs talk wth a few notes on the R. 0. T. C., and spoke of the next Offcers' Tranng Camp to begn n May whch he hoped would be open to several undergraduates at Trnty. Captan Goldsten made an urgent appeal for more canddates for the Track Team and outlned the prospects for the comng season.. E.

"NOW THEN TRNTY" the recent electon n Wsconsn for a Unted States Senator, the Socalst nomnee (beng at the tme under ndctment for volatng the laws of the Unted States) receved the ap.p roval of mo!'e than 100,000 ctzens at the polls, whch was approxmately four tmes the vote of hs party at the electons n the same state n Statstcs of the muncpal electons n ffteen ctes n November, 1917, show that out of a total vote of 1,450,000, the Socalsts polled 314,000, or more than 21 per cent. of the whole, whch was over four tmes the proporton of the vote usually pou.ed by that party n those ctes; and f the Socalsts had secured an equal proporton of the vote n the presdental electon of 1916, ther total vote would have amounted to about 4,000,000. Now what s the sgnfcance of ths? t s to be read n the events whch are happenng n Russa. The leaders of the Bolshevk n that unhappy country have not only runed and dsgraced the great naton of eastern Europe, but, as a New York newspaper lately observed, they have had the sngular emnence of nflctng more harm upon the entre human race than was ever accomplshed by.any group of men n so short a tme snce hstory began to be recorded n the tombs along the Nle. Return now to Amerca and we shall fnd the fnal lnk n the argument. The Socalst party of Pennsylvana, assembled n ther annual conventon on March 3; sent a telegmm of congratulaton to the Bolshevk leaders n Russa, n whch they sad, "your achevement s our nspraton." Do we want ths knd of ns p raton to preval n Amerca? f not, we must look to the preservaton of our Consttuton and our nsttutons. And the way to set about t s to acqure a real understandng of what they mean. So say: "Ye.s, let us study the Consttuton." YES; STUDY THE CONSTTUTON. The Edtor of "The Trpod", Sr: Permt me to thank you for your tmely and admrable edtoral, "Study the Consttuton", n the ssue of "The Trpod" for March 19. The Consttuton of the Unted States s well worthy of study merely as an hstorc document of prme mportance and as a nodel of government whch!h as been admred and mtated throughout the world. But more than ths, t.s the charter of our lbertes. And there can be no study more n~prng to the sprt of true patrotsm, or of more absorbng nterest, than the story of the \\'nnng of freedom n the consttutonal development of the Anglo-Saxon race, culmnatng n the conventon of CAPTAN DAVS. "The Trpod" wshes to express n behalf of the undergraduates ts a-p- t s moreover a study of mmedate precaton of fne work that and practcal mportance. Ths s a tme when all Amercans, and especally the students n our colleges and unverstes, should nform themselves accurately of the contents and meanng of our organc law, of ts nterpretaton n the lght of hstory, of the sgnfcance of our poltcal nsttutons, and of the nature of popular and representatve government. For what shall t proft us to jon the eonflct of the natons and help wn the war for democracy, f meanwhle we are robbed at home of those very thngs whch have made u~ a people great and prosperous? The forces at work to undermne, and eventually to overturn, the Consttuton are nsdous and powerful. t was well sad by Senator Kellogg that "there s a rsng tde of socalsm today whch threatens the foundatons of representatve democracy the world over." Notce a few facts. n the mayoralty electon n New York last fall, the Socalst canddate polled more than 145,000 votes. n Captan Davs ha.s performed n mltary affars at Trnty College. ' We gladly announce that Captan Davs wll assst Colonel Cowles n the nstructon of the Trnty College Reserve Offcers' Corps Unt. n Captan Davs ths communty possesses a man well versed n mltary affars, and one who ever stands ready to mpart that knowledge to those who are wllng to receve t. He has gven of hs tme and efforts to Trnty College by formng and nstructng a battalon and to the state of Connectcut by adng n the formaton of the Home Guard of ths state, the most effcent organzaton of ts knd n our country. The undergraduates of Trnty College, who were fortunate n havng hm as ther nstructor durng the few months of the last academc year, m<>st of whom are now n the servce and many of whom are now offcers, profted greatly by the n.ltructon whch Captan Davs gave them. HENRY CAMPBELL BLACK, '80. WESLEYAN AND TRNTY. WAR-TME SERVCE. After two years, dfferences between Wesleyan and Trnty on the score of athletc elgblty rules have been reconcled, and these two 'Con-. nectcut Valley colleges wll meet agan ths sprng, probably n both track and baseball. The agreement has a natural ground n the mutual l'ecognton of the elgblty rules of each college. There h:ts been for some tme a feelng at both colleges that a resumpton of relatons would be most benefcal. Wesleyan and Trnty, as has so often been ponted out, are natural athletc rvals. The schedules of both colleges have been _n a real sense ncomplete wthout the tradtonal bg game of the season. Both colleges are to be congrat.. ulated on the resumpton of relatons, and sncere thanks are due from bobh to ther respectve alumn who have brought about ths reconclaton. The Unted States Cvl Servce Commsson s experencng cons derable dffculty n obtanng typewrter operators and stenographers for the Government. Thousands are needed to fll these postons. Everyone must be made aware of the G<>vernment's need. Woe press on you tl\e necessty of gvng wdespread publcty to ths need. The Unted States Cvl Servce Commsson at Washngton, D. C., wll furnsh full nformaton of and applcaton blanks for the examnatons. Your help s requred. THS S LABOR'S WAR. Ths s labor's war. No element of the people of ths country, or of other countres, would suffer more than the workers from a German vctory- a German peace. What the Germans mean by a "strong peace," a "German peace," was recently expressed by Gen. Von Lebert, leadng Prussan conservatve. "For us there s but one prncple to be followed, and we recognze no other. We hold. that mght s rght. We must know nether s entment, humanty, consderaton, nor compasson We must have Belgum and the north of France. France must be made to pay untl she s bled whte. We must have a strong peace." Mr. Gompers spoke well for Amercan labor when he sad: "The R,epublc of the Unted States s not perfect; t has the mperfectons of the human-but t s the best country on the face of the earth, and those who do not love t enough to work for t, to fgh't for t, to de for t, are n<>t worthy of the,prvlege of lvng n t. " sa.y to the Kaser, say to the Germans, n the name of the Amercan labor movement: You can't talk peace wth the Amercan workers; you can't talk peace 'Wth us; you can't talk to us at all now. We are fghtng now. Ether you smash Y'Our Kaser autocracy, or we wll smash t for you." The workngmen of Amerca have a tremendous nterest to serve, a vtal cause to defend, a work of surpassng mportance to accomplsh. What s vtal to them s vtal to Amerca and to the world. That they see ther duty and the great mass of them are performng t wtjh unmpeachable loyalty s a cause for congratulaton to the naton and to the world. PRZE ESSAY. Consderaton of the przes offered by the Amercan Assocaton for nternatonal Conclaton for a revew of the.book, "The Rebuldng of Europe", by Davd Jayne Hll, s asked of members of the Poltcal Scence Club of ths college. Snce the revew of ths book need not necessarly be an analyss of ts contents, and snce the personal opnons of the contestants on the questons rased by the book are welcomed by the organzers of the contes t, those students of hstory who have ganed an ntellgent understandng of.amercan deals and aspratons, are afforded an opportunty to show what Amerca may be prvlged to contrbute to the new Europe. LETTERS TO THE MOTHER OF A SOLDER. By Rchardson W1rght (1910). New York, Frederck A. Stokes Co. Ths s one of the most touchng, most beautful of the books whch we owe to the Great War. Dealng lt- tle or not at all wth the flame and fury of battle, the author of ths lttle volume hears rather the tumult of perturbed souls and brng~ to us vsons of sprtual realtes. To the hundreds of thousands of parents, wves, and other lovng ones whose grefs and anxetes seem heaver than can be borne, word~ lke these are sure to brng-not relef ndeed, but strength to endure. The words brng more than strength. They create and foster a solemn prde of self-sacrfce, a capacty to glorfy the gvng of the costlest jewels of human lfe., that lft mortalty up toward the heghts of Dvnty tself. But yesterday ths wrter was a "college boy" among us, marked by the customary characterstcs and llusons of such. The hurrcane of the world-storm has blown through hm and revealed hm a prophet and seer of vsons. That s what, n varous ways and wth dfferng results, the great conflct s dong for many mllons.

3 THE TRPOD 3 TRACK SEASON OPENS FTEEN RESPOND TO FRST CALL. The outdoor track season was forally opened last Tuesday when the rst call for canddates for the team as ssued. Despte the bad weather bout ffteen men responded, most of hom have had experence ether n ormer years at Trnty, prep school, r n cross-country durng the past eason. There were three letter en; Goldsten, Nordstrom, and Fox, ho reported, besdes Capt. Buckley f the Cross-Country Team. These en should form a nucleus around hch to buld a farly representatve team, consderng condtons and the act that other college teams are also affected by the war. The group system of coachng n force last season, wll be employed ths year. Last year, because of the nterference of mltary tranng wth the usual tme for practce, the team was dvded nto sectons each under the leadershp of one man who was acknowledged to be the best n hs lne. Men n each group pr actce together. The f<>llowng assgnments have been announced: Dashes, Captan G<>ldsten; mddle dstances, Fox; dstances, Buckley; hurdles, Kngeter; jumps, Captan Goldsten; and weghts, Nordstrom. Canddates are supposed to report to these men every afternoon to receve nstructons for the day's workout and tmely ponters. Wth the frst meet-the Connectcut Valley nter-collegates-scarcely a month away, the men wll have to show the greatest concentraton and wllngness to work n order to round out a team whch wll place Trnty n the foreground. Manager Barber has sad: "We are fortunate to have as many 'letter' men as there are, for from reports whch Assstant Manager Boyce brought back from a meetng of representatves of teams entered n the Connectcut Valley Meet, other colleges are as badly off REV. J. L. McKM. The Rev. John Leghton McKm, who receved the honorary degree of Master of Artso from Trnty College n 1865, ded at hs home n Mlford, Delaware, March 20, He was born at Newcastle, Delaware, August 1, 1835; the son of Rev. John Lnn and Susan Agnes (McGll) McKm. Hs father was a graduate of Dcknson College n the class of 1830, and ded n Mr. McKm prepared for college at Georgetown Academy at Georgetown, Delaware; and was a graduate of the Unvers ty of Pennsylvana n the class of 1857, where he was a member of Ph Beta Kappa. December 4, 1860, he marred Mss Sarah Fsher Rodney of Lewes, Delaware. 'Dhey had three chldren: Maurce, Helen, and Maran. From 1861 to 1863 Mr. McKm was rector of St. Tmothy's Church, Phladelpha; and from 1863 to 1869, rector of Chrst Church, Mlford, Delaware. From 1879 to 1887, he was rector of Sant Mary's Hall, Burlngton, New Jersey; and from 1887 to 1894, rector of St. Paul's Church, Georgetown, Delaware. n 1894, he returned to the rectorshp of Chrst Church, Mlford, where he remaned untl 1910, at whch tme he became rector of St. Stephen's Church, Harr ngton, Delaware, where he remaned n charge untl the tme of hs death. He was a trustee of Burlngton College. as we and some not qute so well. We are partcularly weak n the jumps, es pecally n the broad, and also n the pole vault, but t s hoped that some dark horse wll develop. Ths s an unusual stuaton, f or last year Trnty nvar ably captured all three places n the broad jump n dual meets and Captan Bjorn took frst place n that event n the New England l nter-collegates. As the season s n ts nfancy nothng defnte as to the real worth of the team can be stated, but Captan Goldsten s qute optmstc over the prospects." The men who are out for the team nclude Captan Goldsten, Bond, Beers, Bradley, Bruce, Callen, F <>x, J ackson, Nordstrom, Matthews, Ransom, P ressey, Buckley, Kngeter, Hutchson, Cassady, Nchols, and Muller.
