Education for Citizenship
Our very much mixed population, with so largo a preponderance of
element! entirely ignorant of republican institutions and of the duties
and responsibilities of citizenship, emphasize the importance of educa
tional measures along this line.
We have some 40, (XK) children in our schools, half of whom will
become citizens under present conditions, and nearly all of whom will
if women are granted the franchise. Most of this 40,000 will come to
their majority deplorably ignorant of the duties and responsibilities of
The ballot, like many an other instrument, is a menace in the
hands of tiiese who do not know how to use it wisely , and very grave evils
may easilv result from an ignorant and bungling use of it. It might
easily happen that an ignorant or irresponsible element coming into the
power of the franchise in this way, could swamp the intelligent and con
servative interests, and turn hack the hands or progress most disas
trously. Probably the schools are already over-worked with the multiplicity
of the tilings they have to tea 'h.or try to teach, but for practical signi
ficance this subject is more important than some that are now receiv
ing much more attention ; more time might lie given to it with advan
tage, even at the cost of contraction somewhere else.
At any rate this matter of Citizenship Education is one of very
great importance and deseives our very earnest and intelligent consideration.
fOaACCOll, v. r,
We cannot expect to enjov the pride and glory of war without hear
ing its burdens and responsibilities; and even if w don't enjoy the
pride and glory of war, nevertheless we will have to hear its I amicus
aivd responsibilities. ()n of them, from now on, must be a generous
support of the Red Cross work for the benefit of the American Army
This work Is absolutely vital to efficiency and success, and has got
to be done by somebody; the only question is are we going to do our
share manfully and without evasion, or are we going to pass it over to
s 'inc one else to do for us.
These deplorable war conditions have been rilling our pockets with
unexpected wealth; we haven't been to blame; we couldn't help it.
But when the call comes, now, for us to contribute out of our swollen
incomes, a tithe if need be, for the well being of our fellow . men who
eve going to protect our liberties and our fortunes at the expense of
great sacrifice and possible death, it is up to us to stand by them with
everythihg that money will buy and do it generously and promptly.
Are We Getting Too Much Entertainment
The last week has been a strenuous one in the show line, no less
than live public evening affairs, to say nothing of several private ones,
which claimed many people; why.it is getting to be that a person has to
Ui two things in one evening! For a quiet, rural community like this,
i hat is rushing things!
Of course this is a personal matter; there is no compulsion alniut
these shows; if you don't want to go to them vou don't have to. All of
which may be said in justification of any evil, the saloon, the gambling
den, the brothel etc.; all you've got to do is to keep away from them
an 1 they won't hurt vou. Nevertheless these things are a very real
menace because they are a temptation.
We would not class popular shows with these evils, but ihe most
commendable recreation may degenerate into an evil in that it involves
an extravagant waste of time and mitficy.
. Does It Mean Eusiness For Us
V . . ...
e have been hearing a good deel about the seriousness of the food
problem, and the imperative need that there is for economy in use, and
ellieicncy in production, all of which, we fear, has pretty much gone in
in one cur ami out .u inc inner, as iar as we are concerned here on
In the light of this attitude, we would respectfully' recommend our
readers to give careful attention to the very illuminating and convincing
appeal in another column entitled How to avoid the menace of starva
tion. Ami if we have been indifferent or remiss we had better wake
up to the seriousness of the situation, and get into line to do our share
in the great national responsibility that rests upon us.
