when it comes. What questions will be asked by the man who is to make the decision

among them? This question, almost certainly : “What have you read ?" Business leaders are asking it more and more. "In every department of practical life," said ex-President Hadley of Yale, men in commerce, men in transportation, and in manufactures have told me that what they really wanted from our colleges was men who have this selective power of using books efficiently." Not book-worms; not men who have read all kinds of miscellaneous books. Not men who have wasted their whole leisure time with the daily papers. But those who have read and mastered the few great books that make men think clearly and talk well.

The books that make men think

straight and talk well

The free book tells about it-how Dr. Eliot has put into his Five-Foot Shelf “the essentials of a liberal education," how he has so arranged it that even “fifteen minutes a day" are enough, how in pleasant moments of spare time, by using the reading courses Dr. Eliot has provided for you, you can get the knowledge of literature and life, the culture, the broad viewpoint that every university strives to give. “For me," wrote one man who had sent in the coupon, “your little free book meant a big step forward, and it showed me besides the way to a vast new world of pleasure." Every reader of The Outlook is invited to have a copy of this handsome and entertaining little book. It is free, it will be sent by mail, and involves no obligation of any sort. Merely clip the coupon and mail it to-day.

Every well-informed man and woman should at least know something about this famous library.

WH HICH show that Republicans voted for him

in confident expectation that his election meant either an association of nations which would be a safe and continuing insurance against another world war or else the League of Nations "amended or revised.”

FACT FIVE. . Senator Harding, from the 28th of August, on to the day the votes were cast, in every important campaign utterance, though he roundly denounced "those obligations" (the supposed superstate features of Article X and the League "brought over from Paris" which contained them and upon which he said he would turn his back), pledged an association of nations to prevent war or the existing League of Nations "amended or revised, if it is so entwined and interwoven in the peace of Europe that its good must be preserved." Seven million majority elected him. Was it in repudiation of those promises or in reliance upon them? This is not to challenge or hurry him. It is to express confidence that the father of the great Washington Conference will in his own good time bring to pass the fulfillment of his promise.

FACT SIX. The party platform, besides approving the Republican Senate stand, which was for the League of Nations with reservations, pledged "an international association. so that the nations may exercise their influence and power for the prevention of war."

FACT SEVEN. But in that campaign, as always in national political campaigns, that in which the voter put his trust more than in platform pledges or leaders' promises, was the consistent party record. What was the party record on the question of world peace? It was this, and only this, ratification of the League Covenant with the Lodge-McCumber compromise reservations, twice voted by the Senate Republican majority. That record of their party, discussed from one end of the land to the other, was the faith, and entry into the League upon that basis was the insistence of nine-tenths of the Republican voters for more than a year. Is there any good reason to believe that in repudiation alike of their leaders' advice, the platform and record of their party and their own year-long insistent position they reversed themselves on election day? These are only a few of the compelling facts which establish the truth as to the mandate of the vote. Read them all, not in a few shortened advertising lines, but established "beyond the peradventure of a doubt," as Arnold Bennett Hall says of it, in "The Great Deception," by Samuel Colcord.
