ISAIAH ’ S SUCCESSORS Whenever the pundits of these times have nothing else to worry about in public, they turn to further gloomy contemplation of youth and ate psychological mystery of the younger generation. Dr. Herman H. Horne, professor of education in New York University, took up this familiar topic in an address to school teach ­ ers. In his opinion, the virus, of a cynical individualism that presum ­ ably affects the thinking and the be ­ havior of the rising generation of this period may be traced to Nietz ­ sche, and perhaps to Schopenhauer. It is necessary. Dr. Horne said, wisely enough, to revive in growing chil ­ dren the subtle and indefinable fears . that modern education, under the stimulus of Freud, has tended to eliminate. The old threats of fire and. brimstone are now shown to have ex ­ cellent uses as this distinguished edu­ cator sees them. But why should they be recommended for youth alone? The elders of this world, it seems to us, need them even more than their children. It is here that Dr. Horne misses the central truth of the matter he d tien ss e d. Nietzsche was a propa ­ gandist of cynicism and selfishness and general disbelief. But he wasn ’ t an advocate of loose personal disci ­ pline. Schopenhauer was a gloom. Both men exhibited the utter, lack of gayety and humor that may be in it ­ self the surest proof of a permanent lo ck of intellectual equilibrium. To. o»*ga*bthat the younger generation* fascinated by all the bright auper- fieialities of contemporary existence, ignorantly accepting organized ex ­ citement as a substitute for happi ­ ness and totally unaware of the value of restraint and ulf-disciplmt as means to lasting contentment, is fol­ lowing after Neitzsche is to draw tha line of argument a'little too fine. It may be well to remember that thg^eldera of every age have been dmposed to regard their children as a lost generation. The Prophet liaiah?a denunciation! of the light- miadad youth of Babylon and tua wade against their ornaments and *nd their perfumes and their “ mincing steps\ are among the moat aloquent expressions of rage sad detestation to be found in any language.

If a plane such as the DO-X is com ­ petent to take 169 passengers at a rate of 120 miles an hour, how much longer will it be before there are even larger planes with greater lifting powers and longer radius of flight which can cross the Atlantic without stopping, as smaller planes have done in each direction? « In this event?' and it is surely ap ­ proaching, what will be the need «f the seadromes? The first, it is esti­ mated,'will cost $1,500,000 and their operation alone must run into a stag ­ gering sum. Hew, we ask in p\\ sim ­ plicity, are sufficient revenues to be obtained from this chain of oceanic stopping places when within a few years planes will be winging their way across the Atlantic without their need? Of course, it may be, there always will be emergency landings. But ex ­ penditures of the type planned by the Armstrong Seadromes Vould not seem to be countenanced for emerg ­ ency stops alone. Far more interesting to us is the possibility of the large airplanes of the DO-X type supplanting the dirig ­ ible, in which we have never had : much enthusiasm because of their | lack of sped. If an airplane can carry I several hundred paying passengers ( * v 'fSv xniieo oil ncruf, can a aihgioic carry a sufficiently.large number at decreased speed to make money ? Furthermore, the cost of the 'air ­ plane is said to be far leu than the ’ dirigible. It ia more flexible, leas sub ­ ject to {1 anger from wind storms, and free from dangers of esaape of gases. If helium be used, to offset the dan ­ ger from combustible gases, there is the extra cost of this rare medium of inflation.

It ia realizing that public opinion is the greatest force in the international field. Whoever and whatever fosters international hatreds and suspicions brings over the future the threat of new war.
