CATALINA ISLANDER,.,,,,, PAGE THREE WILL RESULT FROM REVELATIONS? By Alice E. Cornish University of California the investigators have corn- their cross-examinations and the been put back on Tea Pot what is going to be the general !de of the average citizen toward )ilfering of public lands for the of politicians and private cor- Other generations have their political scandals and in :er or less degree have drawn very ite conclusions from them; in instances remedial legislation has ted as a preventive against any :ition of like nature. What are we to do about the state of affairs makes possible the high-handed ~ures revealed in this passing of sections of government land the office of the Secretary of Interior? By any government of- [? weekly and monthly periodicals with editorials, interviews comment of a searching nature the condition in American gov- affairs which makes such a )erate steal possible. Writers in ~pe as well as America are ques- the practical validity of certain our Political institutions. Now es the State University with an of three courses which deal with American govermnent American political institutions, and :h will be given during the sum- session in Los Angeles by three of outstanding ability, ade Van Tyne of the University of A. B. Butts of Mississippi and Mechanical College, Frederick Woellner of the South- Branch of the University of Call- It is significent, too, that these rses are given nnder three different of the University--Educa- History and Political Science. one realizes that the State ard of Education in California re- that every teacher to whom it a certificate must have at some le completed a course in the Amer- Constitution, one is again remind- of the remarks made by Frank illy, the noted philosophy professor Cornell Universiw, when he was for the east after his first lec- re series at the summer session in Angeles: "Here you have true Pltality of the mind," he stated. Californian is liberal in his judg- ats, not set in his ways. You are everything and making the ex- pay, if not in actual results, development of thought and con- every point of view finds a fol- here. I find that in California with this excess of individualism, tere is, as a counter action, a state triotism which is stronger than any- else. YoUr legislation is for- ward-looking, and in keeping with in- dividualistic tendencies.. I believe it is the true Anglo-Saxon idea that the individual is the purpose and the state the means. While the United States is the most conservative country in the world, California is the most progres- sive state in it." Mr. Thilly did not limit his endorsement of the progres- sive spirit on the Pacific Coast to things political, however. Turning to educational matters, he added, "Do you know, Californians do not appreciate their universities. I can name many California university men who are leaders today among eastern universi- ty teachers." But if Californians do not appreciate their universities, the summer session office of the State University will pre- sent statistics to show that people in other states do, for applications have been coming in within the past few weeks for the session in Los Angeles which will not open until June 28th. It is worthy of comment that on many of these applications the students have marked their choice of some one of the courses given on American govern- sent. This may be fairly considered as a healthy sign of the times, for every thinking person will doubtless admit that we cannot return too soon to that attitude toward our country and our government which was the outstanding characteristic of those early colonial days when the consti- tution was formed by men to whom public service was an honorable obli- gation, to be honorably discharged.
