Alabama re- quires readings from "the Holy Bfble" ; G.orgla requires "the Bible, inciudhag the Old and :New Testaments"; Massa- cbuSetts "a portion of the Bible"; Pennsylvania "at least ten verses from the Bible." The Tennessee law Is slm- llar to that of the Keystone state. Indiana and Iowa are the most notable of the states in which those who take approved Bible study are al- lowed credit toward graduation. In l'ew Jersey, Tennessee and Penn- sylvania reading must be without com- ment. In Massachusetts written notes or oral comment are prohibited. Puplls If they desire, may be excused when the Scripture Is read in George, Massa- chusetts or Tennessee schools. In some states, where reading of the Bible is not permitted ff there Is any suggestion of religion therewith, It may be used to provide exampl .as in liter. ature. A Wisconsin court decision holds that such portions of the Bible as are not sectarian tn eaaracter may be used for secular instruction and to inculcate good morals.

HE United States and Turkey are now formally at peace, or will be as soon as the senate and the An- gora national assembly ratify the treaties that were signed in Lausanne last week by Minister Joseph C. Grew and Ismet Pasha. By the new treaties. which replace the obsolete document of 1830, America loses all the special privileges its citizens have enjoyed In Turkey. After the allies gave way time after time the American accept- ance of the new conditions in Turkey was inevitable. American commercial interests will be treated the same as Turkish Interests. American relief and ARREN G. HARDING'S peculi- arly lovable character and all the circumstances of his death com- bined, to call forth, last week, a dem- onstration of mourning so universal, so spontaneous and so sincere that it stands unequaled since the death of Abraham Lincoln. During four days the eyes of millions of Americans and the minds of all the rest of the people dwelt sadly on the funeral train as It peeved across the continent from San Francisco to Washington. On Wednesday all the officialdom of the national capital followed the casket of the late President from the White Hose to the capitol where It was placed under the t great dome and where the people " of the city and thousands of others passed by R for a last look upon the face of the man they had learned to love and respecL On Friday in Marion, 0., the body of Mr. Harding was consigned to the tomb in the presence of President Coolidge and many thousands of offi- cial and non:official citizens, while literally the entire nation stood silent with bowed head. On that day, so far as mlgkt be, all business and all pteasure was suspended throughout the land and the thoughts of all the people turned to the little Ohio city where a great nation was paying the final tribute of respect to Its chieftain and a grief.stricken woman was laying in the tomb a devoted husband. From the day when the news of President Hrdlng's demise was flashed around the world, messages of sorrow and condolence came in a flood to Mr Harding and to the United States from forefgn rulers and nota- bilities from innumerable organiza- tions in other lands. To realize the world-wide character of the mourn- ing one needed only to read such news items as that the German reichstag began Its special sslon by rising and" standing with bowed heads in mem- ory of Mr. Harding; that the Con- grass of Brltt/ny Sailors in Saint Servan, France, suspended Its session ; that three days of national mourning was ordered by the government of Paraguay, and all oth#r Ltin-Amert- can countries gave expression to their grief; that Portuguese warships flew their flags at half-mast for a day; that soviet Russia and Bulgaria offi- cially told of their setrow, and that memorial services were held in West- minster Abbey while the funeral was taking place in Marion. Standing beside the bier in the ro- tunda of the capitol In Washington," Ray. Dr. Anderson read tim verse from Micah upon which the lips of Mr. Harding chanced to fall as he took the oath of his high office on March 4, 1921. It was: "He hath shewed Tl O Man, what is good and what doth the Lord require of thee, but to do Justly and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with Thy God?" What more need be added? ETURNING from the funeral in Marion to his temporary quar- ters In the New Wilisrd hotel, Wash- Ington. President Coolidge plunged into the business of the coun/ry, and fomd.plenty to do. Already he had conferred with many of the political leaders and listeled to their advice, but volnnteered little information con- ceruing his intentions., He Is not e- peclally talkative, and he has the cau- tion believed to be characteristic of the New Englander. He studies a question thoroughly before acting: and this is no one seems to know. Not- withstanding his declaration of Inten- tion to carry on the Harding policies, the party leaders In Washington do not expect him to make the world court an issue with the senate and risk the chance of a party split, which they say would be playing into the hands of Senator Johnson. R. COOLIDGE may have a chance to add greatly to his pre, tige, if he is called on to settle the strike of anthracite miners, lemembering how, as governor of Massachusetts, he smashed the pOlicemen's trlke, or- gdnized labor does not feet comfort- able over the prospecL So far the coal coamisslon has been able to do nothing in the case. It reported last week that plans for compulsory arbF i tration of wage disputes in the coal industry offer no hope for effectively dealing with the problem, It recom- mends that future wage agreements include a clause providing for auto- matic renewal except as to such points as may be a subject of dispute.. No- tice is to be given of these points ninety days in advance of the expi- ration, and if an agreement is not reached prior to sixty days before the expiration, notice is to be given to the President of the United States who will appoint a commission t inquire Into the subjects at issue and make a public report before the renewal date. New England uses a large percent- age of the anthracite coal mined, and the consumers of that section now threaten to abandoh its use entirely if the miners strlke educational institutions will not be dis- turbed, but they .will not be given spe- cial rights to Import supplies duty free.

ECRETARY OF THE TREASURY MELLON, unofficially in Europe on a sightseeing trip, has been de- voting much time in Paris to dlscuss lng lnterallled debts and reparations !with the French government and the leaders of finance. It is stated he has not been considering the question of details, and has made it plain to France that the United States will never cancel the debts owed It by the allies, trot is wUling to arrange terms conforming to the necessities of Eu- rope. After receiving cablegrams from President Coolidge, Mr. Mellon post- poned his return to America. REAT BRITAIN and France agree- ing, the temporary mixed dis- armament commission of the League of Nations has submitted to the as- sembly of the league a new treaty of mutual guarantees designed as an en- forcement act for Article X of the covenant. In effect it mqkee the court- dl of the league a super-government in the conduct and settlement of fu- ture wars in which league states are involved.

The chancelleor retaliated only with the remark that "the growing activity of communism in Germany and else- where dll lead to the rnln of Europe." To which the Communists replied "She Is ruined already." Concerning the reparstis muddle, Cuno expressed extreme dissatisfac- tion with the British draft of a reply to the German note, declaring It con- tained,much that was impossible of fulfillment and that England had gone extraordinarily far In her concessions to the" French vleq_3oinL "It Is necessary to coutlnue with all our strength passive resistance, free from mad acts of violence and terror," he said, "and to support ae- tlvely from the unoccupil territory the population @hash Is persevering In I up a general disarmament plan based on guarantees provided by the treaty.

A beginning Is being made at Gary, Ind.. where the eight-hour day with three shifts Is being put into ef- fect in several plants of the United States Steel corporation. Others will follow, and the independent steel com- panies, it is predicted, soon will fall In line` The change to three shifts of eight mars each means employment of 65,- 000 more workers In the steel mills, according to estimates. -These same estimates added $45.000,000 to the steel Industry's pay roll In the readjust- ment, hour wages will be Increased about 25 per cent, it was stated; but the per diem will be decreased" am a result of the change which will take off one-third the steel worker's time in the mills and .give it to him for rest land recreation with his family and friends: In other words, worRers re- celving 40 cesta an hour wllL get 50 cents, while the dally pay will be re- duced from $4.80 for twelve hout to ;4 for eight hours. a passive resistance of its own will."
