??^t?e^?that.a etat* has no right to
>be?ians? he. tsvw allen/' On' the last
???y of .November, tho e?me court de
cided thai a state has the right to for
hld the employment of tllen workmen.
The first CUBC concerned ' tho, Ari
zona law, which prohibited tho c-in
ployment of more than a small per
' centage of aliens for any purpose by
1 any citizen. Tho court annulled that
?law, on the ground that it took away
! the right to carn a living which ia
! implied In tho admission of aliens to
'our country and guaranteed hy our
foreign treaties. It declared that
' the state cannot sanction discrimina
tion against allens hy private cniploy
I The second caso involved the New
, York law. which prohibits thc em
ployment of any ellen? on public
works. In upholding this law, the su
preme court apparently rules that tho
state as un employer can do what its
citizens ns t?mployors cunnot do.
j It's rather puzzling to a layman. It's
hard to see any difference in the
\ principle of thc two problems. There's
: a practical diff?rence, however. If
? tho state refuses to givo an alien
I work, he can p?onuniably got a job

should take over all industries, as tho

of allens then?
RESCUING FROSTIER CHILDREN

which so much of tho relief work in

battle ls taken up, thc work of the
Frnnco-American conimlttoo for the
protection of frontier children comes
j as a wholesome and almost cheerful
variation. Tho youngsters aro gath
ered up by search parties constantly
scouting the bombarded regions, and
aro brought to ParlB. ?.Many of them
have fled from burning vlllnges and
; most of them aro separated from
their families. Many kind hearted
people and organizations novo loan

tle fol kB to live in..until the war ls

i thousand children in these colonies.
The first step after tho children
ore brought to Paris is to scrub them

They are taken ,to temporary depots

.girls look after thoir comfort. Thoy

i Referring .to what Vthe Abbeville
I Press and Banner had to say about
the article in The Intelligencer a few
days ago about tho Owl Drug store
having started using sanitary drink
ing cups. Dr. Glenn Evans, the eldest|
of the Owls said:
"You just tell those Abbeville
people that their old town is risl 200
miles behind Pendleton and everyone
in the state knows what that means.
I am from PondWton myself end ought
to know." ?
TAO Abbeville paper stated that tho
drug et or os In that town had h con
using sanitary cups for, tho past few
years and that they -yore surprised
that Anderson had only found out that
such things existed. This article also
8tated that tho reason tho Anderson
[ county farmers had . sa j phch moro

farmers was because' the Anderson

It muBt be recognized that any :
policy which - is adopted will -have
its dangers. Life is always a venture,
accompanied by ita attendant risks.
Wo walk by faith, not by sight, no
less in our national life, than in .our :
individual career. Tho question then
resolves itself into just this, which.;
policy is attended with tho greater :
On the one hand are ' the dangers
of the unpreparedness polioy. Thc \
opponents of this policy have but one
danger to point out, though ' an : all
inclusivo one, namely, the possibility
of Home other nation:-either Germany
or England or Japan-coming across
tho waters for our scalp after the i
conclusion of the hostilities, on tho
Other side of the ocean. This ls the :
Bolo danger which ls pointed out to
our nation. None of the sane advo
cates of preparedness believe in this
policy for tba purposes of aggressive
; This danger mu ut ? be admitted by <
all." It is a possibility. . The pr cd tc ,
ti on might como to pass. We. might
trust the professed friendship of the j
other nations and find out'tb. our sor- ,
row and discomfiture that bur confi
dence was, falsely dneed , These,
countries \ might send their fleets and
their armlos to our friendly shores,
bombard our- weak defenses, - land
thoir troops, march . unopposed to
Washington, hand down old glory, set
up Uieir own flag and proclaim bur
free citizens - their subjects. . v
This, we admit, is the possible dan
ger that lurks behind - the . policy: of
unpreparedness. But . what of . its
probability? What of Hs probability
in view of these words from Presi
dent Wilson's speech before tho Man
hattan Club, if we are half-way de
cent to the other'nations of tho world,'
'.The country is not threatened from
any- quarter/ She stands .in ^friendly
relations with all the world; Her
resources and ber self-respect -ana
capacity to care for hor own citizens
and rights aro well known. ;. There is
ho fei.- among us." I say, it we are
half-way decent to tho other1 nations,
why.' in view- cf these' Swords- of our,
president, should wi? fear any -attacks
from them? lt we show- ourselves as
eager ' te serve ' their interests In tho
nama of humanity, as we have shown
ourselves zealous -to protect our .com-,
meroe In behalf of capital, why should
iw? not ieontftine to "stand in friendly i
relationa /with all tho world?"
Briefly! fiow, what, are the danger*
of; preparedness?, Let us not-omit at
least a Blight glance in this direction.- .
The first- danger is tho danger of
war itself. After toe outbreak of the ]
European .war, ali of tho papers bad
-Hs to say: "Let- us no more say that
?gebest way to guarantee peace is i
to follow the policy, *ln times of:
peace, proper* for war.' That piece \
ot. sophistry has forever boen preven \
false." So said they all. And now
bere after Hf teen months, *wp see our
nation on the '?jotnt.' ot adopting the -
satne' policy -which it ,? pronou?ced. ?
nrae&s and false:\ Is it really nee- >

Behool in which tho laft? generation]
of Europe matriculated to learn tho
Borne lesson which today is so self
evident?. If the war in Europe has
any lesson', to teach us, it Js the les
son that to prepare for war means
Another danger is the loss of the
higher ideals of life through tho adop
tion ot a militaristic policy. We
wonder how Germany could perpe
trate such atrocities as the trampling
of innocent Belglums on the specious
ground ot "military. necessity," how
she could sink the Lusitania without
notice, how she could do other thlngB
no less lacking in the spirit of hu
manity. Why should we wonder? The
explanation is the simple fact that ?
sordid, cruel, barbarous militarise <
had Happed- the soul bf the nation. A .
nation without a soul is like a body -
without a soul,-it has followed the
process of devolution back to the
predatory brute stage of existence.
Militarism fosters tho spirit of: colos- * _ -
sal selfishness. Selfishness destrov9
the. soul. The soul gone,r we have
only the savage left America has a '
Boui today; let-her-not surrender this >
soul to that most gigantic form of i
materialism Which finds its expr?s- .
sion in militarisa.
. Perhaps the greatest of all the
dangers of military preparedness ts/
that by adopting this policy,,we for-:!
felt tho providentially provided priv
ilege, coming to us at this time and to
us - in ?ur geographical situation
apart from the danger zone, of lead
ing the world to build-lt? civilization,
on another and e raore secure founda
tion than material power. For sixty
centuries, this policy bas proved to
be built on the sound. How much
longer must wo walt to prove its
futility?. Another policy was advo
cated by one whom the best of all
the ages havo called the wisest teach
er that-mankind ever had. In every
other sphere where His principles.
have been given a fair trial, they have
been proved to work. Why not run
the: risk ot trying Him here Just for
once? He taught that.the three things ..'
which abide are faith, hope, and love.
In. the military program, not one of
these elements is present. Am?rica
has the unparalleled opportunity o?
bel ie y ?ru; Jesus Christ in order that '
she may ?be saved front- what all the
rest of the world has suffered through,
not beUving Him. . She is asked by
God today, to trust'Him, love ber fel
low-man and hope steadfastly for the,
coming of that kingdom ot God whose
immanent appearing Jesus Christ
preached, which bas been gradually
coming all down .the ages ns one af- .
ter another kingdom bf evil has had
to give way.before its triumphant ad
vance, and which is ready to como to
day if men are willlag for it
Thesb latter dangers-and they aro
colbssai^-r-cannot be averted if we pre-,
pare on the gigantic scale proposed.
The iformer .danger may be avoided
on . the basis of the most-probable evi
dence. Why not make the venture Uv
