Government by What People

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

Back in the days of Washington and Jefferson the career of Government naturally attracted practically all the most capable and efficient men in the community. But came the era of big industry, and the attraction of money became more powerful than that of fame. Millionaires succeeded presidents as the idols of young men. Now the chances for big money seem to be gone, and with them the attraction of business as a career.

It is in order to point out to college men the opportunities that exist in the various fields of public service that Yake University is holding the second intercollegiate Conference on Careers in Government this Phillips Brooks House, with speakers prominent in politics and in the civil service explaining the possibilities of their work.

The Yale meeting should carry the idea out of the experimental stage. It is through such conferences as these that the young men best educated to govern can be interested in turning their eyes toward their own city halls, toward their state capitols, and toward Washington and that American government can once again come into its own.
