WE MUST HAVE MORE BOYS

"Wo must have more boys at least twelve each hours
We must win by eumiiiiK devices,
To gather the brightest of youth's (lower,
Kroai the garden of homo and innocence's bower,
We must use every art that entices."
"We must haw moro boys. Then let friends be sent
To make their persuasive offers;
(Jet the boys to drink. 'A nickel that's spent
On a glas for a boy Is money lent
To bring dollars back to our coffers'."
"We must have more boys; for only with boys
Is the army of drunkards recruited.
Slay the fathers' hopes and the mothers' joys,
Uso the ilevil's most deceptive decoys,
And render tho boys imbruted."
"We must have more boys; see the prbon waits
Tor thoso wo school in sinning;
The almshouse yawns, the asylum gates
(Jap wide to engulf the inebriates
(Jrown from boys we succeeded in winning."
"We must have more boys. Then let us begin
To pursue them in ee y quarter;
With a hustle and bustle nod din we shall win;
Then scurry and hurry them in to their sin;
Push them on liko sheup to the slaughter."
