THE, SPIRIT OF EATING. Why
is the working girl always used as a
target for all that is immoral? Why
not change about and use a society
bud for a sample once in a while?
I am sure we working folks need
a good hot dinner once in a while to
put our blood in circulation, just as
much as the society woman needs
the wine to stimulate her after the
tango, and the cost of the dinner is
less than the wine.
I belong to the army of toilers and
carry a union card, and for that rea
son I earn a good salary and work
short hours. I owe it to my employ
er to give him, during my working
hours, the best that is in me, but in
order to do that and keep my posi
tion I need good, substantial food,
and I know a quarter of an onion,
two graham crackers and an apple
for a daily diet would soon put me
on the sick list The blood that flows
in my veins is a deep, clear red, not
blue, and it will take good food and
enough of it to keep it a standard
color. Gee, 33 cents per day! You
couldn't say "Good morning" to our
grocery man for 33 cents.
Who is looking after the morals
of the idle rich?
Rise up in revolt, you mothers of
the coming nation! Let no blase
society dame tell us what we shall
eat or how we shall control our emo
tions. Let God and your conscience
be your dictators.
I will willingly wager my month's
salary against Mrs. Bishop's 5c Ber
muda onion that the working men
and women can stack up 100 per cent
pure and are better lookers than hali
of the women and wrist-watch-wearing
Clarences of society.
Virtue has several names. One is
"fear" fear of gossip and detection.
Another is "personality." And then
again our faces sometimes save our
virtue. Let them get their authentic
reports from those who have gone
hungry, and not the kind of hunger
that's banished with bacon and
beans, but that gnawing hunger of a J)
lonely heart for a home and all that
Mrs. Bishop says she will live on
that diet for six days. What is the
dear lady going to eat the other 359? .
We need just one more freak to tell
us how to defy the laws of God and
nature and then that rare old bird,
the stork, will be extinct. Sally.
KNOWLEDGE. Such tragedies as .
that of Lambert and Orpet case
would greatly decrease in number if
young men and women were in
structed in sexual hygiene and mo
rality in the last grade of the public
school or the first year of high school.
Careful reading of Margaret San
ger's articles would help young men
and women to understand their na
tures. Only when young people
know of the natural forces that sur
round them and are in a position to
control their foolish desires or pas

men and women, as well as good citi

THE YOUNG FATHER
Saturated with the new paternal
enthusiasm, Allisan Holifield return
ed from his territory Saturday night
with his order book chock full. The
full book did not mean any unusual
coffers for the Buckley-Terry treas- j)
ury, however; half of the pages were
filled with suggested names for that
new baby girl. Laurel, Miss., Leader.
Gov. Hi Johnson proclaims Ford
barred from doing business in Cali

at Sacramento, Henry, for Hiram is
sure a fighter.
