Conservation and Economic Efficiency
By Mr. D. H. CASE
XI ...... ......
(Continued from last issue.)
Mr. Hoover urges the women of
America to eliminate waste and
preach the gospel of the clean plate,
lie might supplement this appeal
with one to the men of America to
eliminate a few cocktails and cigaret
tes and preach the gospel of the clean
li;'e, wh'ch would add marvelously to
their own and their brothers' etll
ciency. In a talk to the Mills Club,
of San Francisco, Mrs. Robert l!ur
delte said she would take as her sub
ject the 11th. Commandment "Thou
shalt not be Inefficient." I should like
to add a twelfth commandment
"Thou shall not make thy brother
'.nellicieiit." If the women of America
have a work to do, so likewise have
the men of America, in helping to
el jninate this needless extravagance
of wasted vitality, of degraded woman
hood and lowered ideals. We would
not exhaust a storage battery by con
stant drainage and expect to continue
giv'.ng cllicient service; why then, do
we not realize the more important
fact that if we recklessly and wanton
ly use up our own vitality, each suc
ceeding generation must necessar'Jy
be weakened in physical, mental and
moral stamina. Let us stop coquet
ting with one of the worst enemies
our country can ever know! Let
us awaken from the self iypnot;tni
of belief that of all the animals man
alone has more imperative physical
m etis, and save our girls as well as
our boys. If present social condit'ons
continue, there mast be a supply ol
women to meet the demand, and
from whose homes shall they come
from yours and mine? Last year in
the States alone over 5,000 young girls
disappeared, no trace of them be'jig
found by their friends. Add to this
five thousand the many thousands of
others, who, through various means,
are tempted into a life that is worse
for iliein titan death for we are not
letrent with tempted womanhood
aiyl we get another phase of extrav
agant wi.ste. Are these the boasted
ideals for which we are today offering
the lives of our young manhood?
"In all the European arin'rs now at
war the ravages of vice up to the pres
ent time have been very great. For
more than the first year of the war
one of the great Powers had more
men incapac'tated for service by
venereal disease than in the fighting
at the front. Last year there were
17,000 cases concentrated in a single
"When in addition to this direct
wastage of military strength we con
sider the nunibtr of men. and the ex
pense required in caring for these,
we get some idea of the seriousness
of the problem from a military point
of view alone. It may easily spell
the difference between victory or de
feat. "On the Mexican border, vice in !Jh
most llagrant forms nourished exten
sively in the environment of the mili
tary camps. The vice-distr'cts be
came virtually the playground of the
Dr. lixm r of the educational bureau
of the National Y. M. C. A. in making
the above report to the government
"Thousands of fine fellows who came
to the border clean in the'r lives, and
with fair promises to keep their man
hood untainted fell victims to the al
lurements of commercialized vice and
loturned home if not injured in health,
cerja'nly demoralized in the finest
it . . . . a
Comparative Test Of Lima Beans
At the Haiku Sub-Station there has
been completed a comparative test
of ten varieties Lima beans. The
seed was planted February 2G, 1917.
All the bush varieties had produced
eatable green beans by May 15. The
pole varieties were about a month
later in producing the first eatable
green beans. Notwithstanding the
except ionally dry summer the pole
varieties continued to bear profusely
up to the last week in .October at
which time the remaining pods had
r'.pened and Were harvested for seed.
The dwarf or bush type ceased pro
ducing pods about the middle of Au
gust, hence the bush varieties pro
duced eatable beans for about four
land a half months during an excep
tionally diy season. Uoughly speak-
' In; the pole Linias produced fully
two to three times as many beans as
the bush form. The main advantage
of the Lush type is their earlier matur
ity and self supporting character;
.kewise do they requ're less room.
'lOmphas'p should be placed on the
lact that long continuity of fruiting is
qualities of the:r manhood.
"We have in the past looked too
exclusively on the military side of
tins problem. The most serious con
sequences are social consequences.
A vast amount or disease necessarily
remaining uncured, and brought back
into society, extends its ravages to
many general !ons. The shattered
ideals, sensualized minds, and perverse
practises, affecting fo largely the
best young manhood of the nal'on,
permeates the whole life of society
and sets it back in those spiritual
values v hu h' mark the real level of
a nation's life."
"Our soldier boys in France and In
cur own Am i lean camps need safe
ty from those insiduous dangeis which
infest our cvties and towns and, terri
bly reinforced by the circumstances
of military life, are waiting to ta'nl
body and soul. The moral atmos
phere of the encampments where a
million young men will soon be pre
paring themselves for war i most
critical element in a situati alrea ly
lull enough of anxiety and unhappi
ness for those who are left at home.
"When war was declared on Apr"l 5,
1917, the Government realized that
aside from definite military prepara
tions it was absolutely necessary to
take effective steps toward the re
pression of alcohol and its twin sister,
"There were stein facts to face, and
theories were out of place. The
Government was determined that vice
should not imperil the tUiciency of
the millions or young men who may
eventually be called to the colors So
far as possible, proposes to follow its
sold '.crs aboard to aid them in this
time of special tryil."
The secretary of war has created
a commission on training camp activi
ties for the purpose of counteracting
harmful influences by a constructive
plan of social activities. Through
the international committee of the Y.
M. C. A . and var'ous other boards,
committees and councils, the moral
safeguard of the men is assured,
with the co-operation of the men
themselves. Twelve hundred young
men. in training in San Francisco
have taken the following pledge:
"Aware of the temptations inciden
tal to camp life and the moral and
social wreckage involved, we convcu
ant together to live the clean life
and to seek to establish the American
uniform as a symbol and guarantee of
"We pledge our example an,d our
iiiiiuenco to make these ideals domi
nant n the American army." .
Is not the present time a golden op
portuuiiy to get behind the young
manhood that is offering itself on the
altar of American ideals and help
ihem reconstruct some of those ideals
ihat their sacrifice may not be in va'ji?
Mr. Hilton Hailey, writing in the
Independent, says: "It has hitherto
been the lot of the mothers, in times
of national cr'ses, to bear the brunt
of the subsequent discord and in
harmony: to give their all and suffer
amid the silent ruins of their hearts."
Now is the time when that home
firm of Father, Mother & Co., can
work together in aiding the govern
ment not only n making this war as
free from pain and sorrow and di
sease and regret as possible, but in
assuring to that Company and to
future generations an America of
safety in every vital sence of the
greatly encouraged by clean packing
of the pods as they reach the eatable
stage. If left to mature the growing
season is much shortened, lielow is

varieties are placed in the order of
their general merit.
1. IJurpee's Fordhook Eush.
2. Uurpce's Iiush Lima.
