SOCIAL LAWS ON Ti!Pi COAST
That tho Pacific coast states are
ahead of any other group of states
in tho country in tholr general so
cial legislation is tho conviction of
Harry Wcmbrldgo of Roed Coliego,
expressed in an article* in the current
Here aro some of tho laws passed
by all of them: Workmen's compen
sation, eight hour? tor ?ll public
works, eight hours in mines, eight
hours and no night work for women,
and minimum wages for women, be

taws. Child labor is not permitted
under nix teen. Oregon has a ten
hour day for mon and California hus
a law providing that, ono duy out ot
Ecven must bo a rest. day. All three
give methors' pensions.
"What distinguishes tho Coast
States IB not so much their welfare
l?gislation,, but the extant to which
they have''organised and developed
tho functions of government," sayB
tho writer, and he names a few of
tho commissions of importance: In

Mr; Wombrldgo thinks that at pres

THE 8A*E8T RAILROADS
' >'.?;.. -- ? ;
. We are getting UBCd to the Idea that
our railroads aro redeeming their old
reputation for slaughter. But '. wc
aro Hardly prepared for the statement
?ot the Bureau of Railway News that
J?aarlean' railroads ara now the sal
bst th . ;the worhi ' Yet the figures
show, this to be a fact.
According to "the latest statistics
from Europe, there were 700 passen
ger -killed In a year on 207,000 milos
of railroad. In tho Tjnlted 's'tatei*. for
the fiscal year 1?16, there ware pttw
18? passengers kitted on railroads ag
P^^njs; 250.000 miles. \,^';,
^t^tei^ene? redu?ti?ja r?t accidents
may be ?cen in thc fact that ten year?
ago, with f?t ICK? mileage and only
about half ...i many passengers, our
railroads killed 533. So great ha?
been thc improvement that last yeur
:',?r> of our* railroads with two-thirds
or the total mileage did not kill a
The present ligures for Europe may
be unfair because of the unusual rail
road conditions due lo the war. Hut
if thut tactor I? eliminated our show
ing ls ?till tho beat. Huted by pas
senger-miles, our record for last yeur
was better than Great Hrltain'u for
thc your before thc war.'
We still fall behind most European
countries, however, in thu number of
people killed on the railroad tracks.
That ls explainable partly by the bet
ter safe-guarding Of trucks abroad und
purtly by the carelessness of our peo
ple in walking persistently where they

Hie ancient Greeks but one-tho broad
jump with weights, which isn't prac
ticed to uny extent-has been broken
by New York city school boyB. This
wa? discovered recently when sixty
boys equal to the best of the Greeks
were needed for a Shakespeare mas
que ut the great out-door stadium of
tho College of tho City of Now York.
It wus no long and discouraging
tusk to find thoao boyB. On the con

tho ancient Greek standards both in
measurements and in physical tests.
The sixty who had inoBt time for re
hearsals were chosen.
Civilization, which has freed us
from the superstitions of exposure
and torture In developing strength and
courage, has, of course, brought with
lt possibilities of oase and softness
unknown to earlier peoples. But the
advantages of sanitation, botter food,
better knowledge of how to live Beeni
to have more than compensated for
any of tho disadvantages. *
