would see a man legally murdered
on a technicality. To gain their own
ends, there is nothing they will not
do. But they lack initiative when it
comes to helping others.
When the thinker, the real leader,
comes along, they ridicule him as a
fool and brush him aside.
There is hope I know, but we must
first conquer self.
It is the same old story, now as

leaders (or followers, which?) are'
scrambling and jumping for the wa
ter wagon. W. J. Bryan, Bishop
Mundelein, Dr. Hutchison, Judge
Landis and Mayor Thompson are OHt
strong against booze since the last
election. Of course, the many states
that went dry had nothing to do with
it. They are leaders, not followers.
Then what are their reasons? Mr.
Bryan's pity must be aroused for the
drinker as drink does not hurt him.
He is about to give something for
nothing. He will speak here in Chi
cago on. prohibition without any
charge. All his other ideals must be
paid for. I would suggest instead of
wanting to adopt any new amend
ments tb the constitution he would
go out to dry Seattle and use his
' matchless eloquence for the con
stitutional right of free speech, but I
guess he does not believe in free
- speech. Rumor says his rate is not
less than $250, but he will have to go
some before he is in the Billy Sun
day star class.
Who knows but if the good bishop
had. passed around a big drink of
booze its known antiseptic effect
might have prevented the worry
caused by Crones' soup.

Judge Landis in his investigations
on the high cost of living might
figure a more useful way to use the
1,000 g6lf courses of the -country

he and the other golfers who want
exercise go into the woods and chop '
down trees for wood pulp, so that we
can be sure and get our Day Book.
We could also plant- potatoes on the
golf courses and get 12,500,000 bush

TO OUR SEX WRITERS. I have
been a constant reader of The Day
Book since its first appearance. I
have- been deeply interested in The. ;
Forum, because some excellent arti- ,
cles formerly appeared in its col
umns. But now it appears to me that
a few so-called writers who are suf- -fering
from acute sexophobia mo
nopolize The Forum.
The joke of it all is that these mo
nomaniacs believe that they are ad- .
vanced thinkers. It appears to these -insignificant
pieces of matter that
the solution of all human woes is to
be achieved through promiscuous "
sexual relations. They forget that
evolution does not imply the throw- '
ing away 'of forces of selection, but -by
modifying them to suit the con
ditions of the age and generation.
Chastity rightly interpreted is, not
prudery, nor doe it imply conti-
nence, but the adjustment of alj the
powers of man, both physical and
mental, so that it should minister to
his whole being. To inhibit certain
feelings of man, which when over
done lead to physical, mental and
moral disaster, does not mean self-
repression, but self-expression.
The individual who tries to be too
