There have been too many ap
propriations and too much money
spent already without any benefit to
the poor. M. Evalyn Fritzinger, 764
E. 40th st. "
PEACE AND LIBERTY. There is
nothing so sweet "as peace mingled
with liberty. No man can live as he
ought, no child or mother either,
without them. Men fought and died
or suffered agonies worse than hell
described in the scriptures to gain
peace and liberty for the struggling
mass of human slaves.
Their words and acts were not
rightly appreciated even by the kind
they died to save. They owed not
the world, but the world owed them,
even as the world owes many now
who suffer that the slaves be saved.
Let our eyes grow open-that we
may see so that we may know and
heed. Frank Smith.
VICE. I have noticed some read
ers of The Day Book favor the red
light districts. There are a good
many people who think it is better
to have vice located in one district
than have it scattered all over the
Their chief argument is that by
abolishing the redlight districts our
woman, or as they put it, in a more
pathetic expression, our mothers,
daughters and sisters, will be at
tacked on the streets by men because
of their devilish passion. Also that
innocent men will be approached by
what they call immoral women and
they will lose their virtue.
I wonder what they understand by
the redlight district? Do they take it
as a place for shops and factories?
Do they think It is better to have it
located in a certain place to save a
swell neighborhood from smoke? Do
they know that hundreds and thou
sands of mothers, daughters and sis
ters are attacked every day in the
It is regretful to observe how som
mothers, though keeping their eye
upon their own daughters, never
watch their sons.
By encouraging vice thousands and
millions of dollars are invested in that
business. Let us abolish special
places for vice and control ourselves
and we will have a healthier race and ..
less crime. Morris Minovitch, 1548 I )

M'EACE. It is absurd to think that
there will be permanent peace bo long
as the people are dissatisfied. This
feeling of revenge and 'dissatisfaction
will exist so long as there are mil
lions of people in this country who
are in need of life's necessities. The
people do not know whom to blame
for the present conditions and -so
when another nation is blamed and
war is declared they fight for the au
thorities, the only ones who gain.
There are two factors in the prob
lem of gaining peaceful feet for this
country to stand on.
1. Reform or revolution of our in
dustries and commerce.
2. The masses be better educated
than they are.
The Socialists, I note, are dis
cussing a campaign for disarmament.
This is indeed a good thing. It will
help to educate the people all the
But, again, it is not enough to have
peaceful brains. We must also have
peaceful legs and feet to-stand on.
The brains of religion, Socialism,
labor unionism and others fell
through last fall. They were too nar
row. They shut out too much of
life's human phrases to succeed. Most
of them even shut out the other to (f
join the foes who block their road to
the realization of their dreams
peace, prosperity and laziness.
The work of gaining the peaceful
feet could be taken up and boosted so
that it would turn the thoughts Of
many away from the war news and
give them something else to think
