LETTERS TO EDITOR
A GREATER NATION AND A
GREATER WOMAN
Editor Day Book: We have all
heard the statement, "A nation can
not rise above the level of its wo
men." Doubtless, but are we really
seriously considering its signifi
cance? It is from women that we may ex
pect a new order of things; it is she
that sways society, nations and the
world. It is through her determined
thought for good that the saviors
of the world shall rise. A father may
build a beautiful home for his chil
dren, but a mother's thought can de
stroy them (prenatal influence),
therefore, MEN, let alone vice and re
form and investigation, be kind and
loving to your wife, your mother,
your sister and every woman you
meet, for she is the highest type of
being, she is worthy of our highest
consideration and praise, she is the
noblest of beings and the day is not
far distant when she will come to the
front, and men should welcome this
day, for through it he will receive his
salvation.
Now that we know that man's sal
vation is depending upon woman
what shall we do keep looking
helplessly for some mysterious way
out of where we, humanity, are to
day. No; remember "charity begins
at home." As the Virgins kept their
lamps (bodies) well trimmed and
burning, so must we, for the whole
solution of life's greatest problem is
within us, in this body of ours. Then
let us not defile this Temple of ours
through negligence, misuse or ill
treatment, for the body is the like
ness, the image of God; therefore cul
tivate better bodies, and clearer
brains in that body; how? by study
ing our individual characterists," our
food, our bathing, our rising up and
our lying down, and gradually, from
day to day, you will know what it is
to live, not merely exist; you will give
a flower where before you were read
to hand a thorn; abhor that which is
unclean, such as oysters, bacon, ham,
eels, etc., and cling to that which is
good, like fruits, vegetables, legumes,
and health, peace of mind and hap
piness will result (nature). John
McGregor, 514 E. 28th St.
SUGGESTS A WAY
Editor Day Book: In a recent is
sue John H."SolIer says:
"Give women , their independence,
the opportunity at all times to be
self-supporting. Then see that men
are paid wages sufficient for the
maintenance of a family and a
home."
Mr. Soller is entirely right, such
conditions should prevail, but how
would he bring it about. This is the
way I would do it: I would put a
five per cent tax on the 400,000 va
cant lots in Chicago, with the re
sult that the vacant lots would be
forced into use, which would cause
such an enormous demand for work
ingmen that all the unemployed
would be put to work at once, and
wages would quickly rise so high that
the above condition could be brought
about. F. Williams, 218 S. Western
Avenue.
