won't respond, fire him when he
comes up for re-election. Demand
that your representative levy an ever
larger income tax on large fortunes.
Make it plain to him that you want
these tremendous ' accumulations,
which -will eventually mean the de
struction of the republic, taxed out
of existence and applied to the ac
quisition of our great monopolies
and to measures of social necessity
such as old age insurance.
Since the wealthy have made their
'stake out of privileges granted them
by our present social order, let them
pay -the cost of its maintenance in
proportion to the benefits they have
received. James H. Dolsen, May

MARRIAGE AND THE GIRL. In
The Day Book of Jan. 3 Mr. Saunders
endeavors, to solve the problem of the
high cost of living, but instead makes
the problem much, more complex.
You poor, helpless Mr. Saunders!
Did you wait 35 years and live your
life alone because you could not find
a foolish woman to support you? It
is evident that ypu cannot support
yourself, and, if so, you do not de
serve a wife. Furthermore, how have
you got the audacity to ask some
good 'girl to be your wife and in the
bargain have her mother act as the
servant for you?
I do not in the least blamt you for
having such thoughts. It merely
shows that you have been educated
wrong in thinking that you can get a
girl to fulfill the duties of wife, moth
er and support of the family.
You have erred my friend, and
may God forgive you for it!
Men like you are a detriment to a
community, for they influence wrpng
thinking. You are injuring yourself
as well as the rest of your club mem
bers by having such fantastic ideas
that any good, self-respecting girl
would come to you and say: "Please
be my husband. I will work for you,
and my mother will take care of
Now, friend Saunders, do you
know that a girl that makes enough
to support herself and mother gen
erally holds a good position and will
not give it up and marry unless she
can go right into a cozy little nest
of her own and not have to toil after
marriage for a lazy husband. You
may think that three can live cheap
er than two, but the figures on the
grocer's bill will completely disprove
So please be more cautious in the
future as to the solutions that you
offer for the Jiigh cost of living.

ANOTHER VIEW OF PROSTITU
TION. "One of Them," with the
argument for segregation and regu
lation, writes like one of the male
prostitutes rather than one of the
Substitute robbery, murder, bur
glary or any rfther crime for prosti
tution in the argument and it is
equally forcible, equally as convinc
ing and equally as right and just.
Segregate them all and regulate.
The burglar needs to exercise his
criminal instincts as well as the pros
titute. Why encourage the one and
.discourage the other?
The moral law does exist. The
lack of knowledge concerning a first
cause doesjiot weaken or abolish the
moral law. Violation of it is invari
ably succeeded by a penalty. The
law is founded upon human experi
ence. It needs no other revelation.
Segregating its violators will only
add to the evils of civilization a
semi-criminal trust that will weak
en the whole structure.
A large proportion of mankind re
spects and obeys the moral law. If
they did not, men would perish and
disappear from the face of the earth
through the influence of their own
"One of Them" unknowingly in
dicts the system of trying to govern'
people with one-half of them dis
franchised and enslaved. The em ant.
