W. J. Bryan Continues to
Hold Attention As He
Speaks On Issues Brought
Out In the Case.
(By (hr Associated Pmm)
Dayton. Tenn., July 9.—Dayton today
settled down to completion of the final.
preparations for what hns been termed 1
the battle between fundamentalism and t
evolution. «•, I

Hiring (he sidewalks.
An address by IVm. Jennings Bryan at
Morgan Springs last night formed the
chief topic of conversation' as Dayton
inns assembled on street comers ami in
the drug stores.
Ah expression of his faith in the mod
ern jury system, and a discussion of what
he termed an attempt by minority of
scinetists to force their views on scien
tific lines upon the children of the ma
jority formed the principal themes of Mr.
Bryan in his address. ,
Some of the city papers have ridiculed
the idea of trying a scientific question be
fore a jury, he aaid, launching into a de
fense of the jury system. It would not
be possible or even wise to try auch a
case before a jury of scientists, he said.
Pointing out that no state in the un
ion requires an educational qualification
for a jury, he declared “our faith in the
jury system rests 011 the same foundation
as our faith in popular government."
Voicing a protest at what he termed
an effort of the minority to force their
views on the majority. Mr. Bryan said,
“The evolutionists if they were in the
majority in Tennessee, would elect a
legislature on this issue and repeal, the
law, but knowing they ary in the minor

Thinks Scopes Is Hurting Teachers.
Dayton. Tenn.. July 9. —William Jen
nings Itryan believes that John T. Scopes,
defendant, in the. Teunesmu-e evolution
trial “is doing more harm to the teaeli
eis the country than to any other
class.'’ . ■ . ... i
This harm, he declared, would be “in
definitely increased ,if his (Scopes) views
as to the independence of the teacher
“If the evolutionists can succeed. in
establishing the doctrine that a teacher
can teach anything he or she pleases,"
said Mr. Bryan, “and teachers disregard
the views of employers it will become
necessary to find out before apointment
what ths teacher thinks on disputed
questions, because the people who em
ploy teachers will be just as certain to
prevent teaching what ie objectionable to
those who employ the teachers, a« bank
ers and businesa men are to prevent
clerks from running the banks contrary
to the instructions of their employers.”
Mr. Bryan, who is associated with
counsel for prosecution of the yonng
school instructor, expressed the belief that
the welfare of teachers is moat preserved
under the “present system.”
Under this Bystem, he said, personal
views of teachers are left free, and the
control of what is to be taught > s to be
left to those to hire the teachers. “That
is to the taxpayers and parents acting

r of David W. Mulvane, Republican na-
I ttiona! committeeman from Kansas, made
at Swampwutt recently putting Presl
-1 dent Coolidge in the race for a third
, term in 1028.
' It is simply nn*Oceidental form of the

At this particular stage of the Coolidge

wants the Presidency., again; anything
else would be political treason.
Senator Willis two,months ago sound
• ed the same note in jleny : ng his own
Presidential aspirations. Tlie Ohio Sen
ator, charged with starting on a speak
ing hour with the White House in view,
; replied, in much the same langunge ns
' that employed by the National Commit
teeman from Kansas, that the nomina
tion in 1928 belonged to Mr. Coolidge
and that nobody else could go after it
unless the President disclaimed any in
tention of running again.
That 1s something Mr. Coolidge is not
at all likely to do. His natural, hah* l
of reticence will prevent his making the
dilemma for himself that Roosevelt did
in the Bush of his election tb the Presi
dency after having served o'ut McKinley's
term, when he proclaimed his belief that
1 the country did not want a man to be
three times in the President’s chair,
whether by election or succession.
The impression is very strong that Mr.
Coolidge's present frame of minde inclines
to continuing in his office after 1928. As
a matter of fact not since Washington
and Jefferson and some of their immedi
ate successors, pronounced against a
Ihiril term have we had a two-term Presi
dent who did not hanker to run again,
but the sentiment of the country has al
ways been strong enough to deny a .nom
ination in theme cases—the incident of
Grant as well as of Roosevett illustrate
Perhaps the most significant indica
tion in the present instance is the com-,
ment oj Arthur Brisbane, who ahortly
after he had been the President's guest
on the Mayflower, published the follow
“There cant be any Coolidge tb ; rd
term discussion until after the President
shall have been re-elected in 1028. That
would be his second term and the right
time to begin talking about a third.”
He added that Mr. Coolidge's acci
dental tenure of office following Presi
deut Harding's death was not a Presi
dential term, and hazurded the opinion
that .the people of his party “not being
idiots," will ask him to take charge for
four years more.
