In another column is printed a review of "American Defense," a monthly magazine devoted to preparedness. Interest lies in the fact that its founders are University graduates. The originator of the scheme was C. S. Thompson '87, chairman of the board of trustees of the American Defense Society. The editor-in-chief is P. J. Roosevelt '13, and among the associate editors and contributors are R. W. Child '03, G. von L. Meyer '79, former secretary of the navy, and C. Stetson LL.B. '03, and Owen Wister '82.
