The old worship of military heroes
must pass. The new recognition ot
heroes of peace must grow. The old
worship of riches and title lrust pass.
The new recognition or poor and
humble men and women of goodness
and service, must grow. The stand
ards of honor are changing. The de-
maud Is voiced by Edwin D. Mead,
American author and lecturer, in the
following vigorous protest against the
old and barbarous worship of military
heroe3 as evidenced by our statuary.
Mr. Meade says:
"A people's statues thtir choice, or
the choice imposed upon them, of the
men to be publicly honored are im
portant and Influential. Yet there Is
hardly any matter where the world is
so ' backward, where it so seldom
shows a high degree of enlightenment,
where It is so often barbarous or snob
"The cause in our national capital
is notable. The streets and siiiKTres
of Washington swarm with statues
but it is no exaggeration to say that
three quarters of them are of con
erals and admirals, and most of these
are of men of whom even the high-
school boys of the city know but little.
There is next to nothing among th m
to remind the visitor from Mars or
from Maryland that the , nation of
Washington and Jefferson and Frank
lin whose judgment of war and of
the proper prominence of the soldier
in their new Republic is remembered
by some of us ever produced a poet
or historian, a scholar or teacher, a
painter or sculptor, a philosopher or
philanthropist, a statesman or a man
of science worthy of notice, or that jp
to date it really honors, enough to
spend any money to show It, any vo
cation save the warrior's. It is the
measure of our barbarism.
"Yet what opportunities and beck-
onings our rich American history and
our national capital offer for the sculp
tor and the man of wealth and the
proud nation ... I am thinking cf
the things which are there and ought
not to be, and of the thing which
ought to be there and are not."
