country may never possibly be able
to belong to a labor union, even
though they wish to, then they may
begin to show their love for their fel
lowmen by using their already great
strength in taking a more active part
in public affairs than they have done.
When we begin to care for the wel
fare of others then we begin to apply
the great principle of love in daily
We may imagine that when any
great body of men, actuated by a big,
unselfish motive, begins to apply its
power and strength and influence
where it will have an effect for good
upon the people of a nation, there
will be an incalculable effect upon
the affairs of millions of people, fres,
upon a nation. Nellie H. Baldwin.
LET'S GET ACQUAINTED.
Some time ago Erik Hansen brought
to light a subject of great importance
to the readers of The Day Book. A
few broad-minded young girls came
to the rescue of their sweet sex.
How can good strangers get ac
quainted in. this town without flirt
ing? How many young men have
have seen their ideal girL but were
afraid to speak to her for fear she
would call an officer? I believe the
men should lay low and let the girls
who wish to get acquainted do the
talking for a while. Are there any
men who would be dirty enough (ex
cluding politicians) to cause the ar
rest of a girl who talked to them?
Cannot lonesomeness be put to
blame for the downfall of many
young people? Marie E speaks of
serious-minded young men who wish
to settle down. How can a man un
der 30 be serious-minded with this
present high cost of living? How
many men under 30 have been able
to stack a few thousand, to meet the
heavy first cost of matrimony?
Talk about poverty - stricken
wages! Leave the wages alone and
lower the cost of living. There is no
reason why things should cost so
much with the modern inventions
and improvements in labor and time
Another Forumist "P," tried hard
to wed and lost He should know
better than to trust a wife with
$1,500 a year. Only a few women
can stand prosperity. Any man that
gives all his wages to a wife is a good
loser. Women as well as men while
young should learn to worship the '
great god otlife, the American eagle.
SUNDAY VISITOR AND THE
MENACE. "C. H." wishes Catholics
to explain why Our Sunday Visitor
attacks the Guardians of Liberty.
I am not a Catholic. I am a Prot
estant and a member of an Eastern
Star chapter. I am also a member
of the Teachers' Federation.
I believe the answer to "C. H." is
found in one word "prejudice."
Some Catholics are prejudiced
against Guardians of Liberty and
Masons. Some Guardians of Liberty
are prejudiced against Catholics.
Other Guardians of Liberty and some
high in Masonry have not the least
prejudice against Catholics.
I have read Our Sunday Visitor
and I have no use for its bitter de
nunciations. I have read The Menace, too, and
if all its statements about the Cath
olic church are as misleading as
some of its statements about the
Teachers' Federation I would not
consider its attack very seriously.
I believe in the Guardians of Lib
erty and in Masonry and not in the
Catholic church, but one must be
careful not to be blinded by prejudice
against any church, for there must
be good in all churches) and in all,
even the one we think is the best,
there is room for improvement. .
The Menace and Our Sunday Vis
itor may both be sincere in their at
tacks on each other and both be very
Let us be wary of any religious
strife, lest we forget our brotherhood
in Christ. E. yk
