WITH the anniversary of our
With as a nation but a few
days off the entire land is in
the midst of preparing for its
Fourth of July celebration. But there
3s a marked difference in this and in
other years in the form of the cere
monies planned. No longer is the
?discharge of firecrackers and toy can
non the sole outlet for patriotism af
forded the youth. Indeed, except in
towns and villages blinded to their
?own welfare, such a means of cele
bration is but a relic of the dark
ages, for the vast movement for a
Safe and Sane Fourth has literally
Taeen sweeping the country.
. This year, more than ever before,
the nation-wide propaganda for a
bloodless celebration of Independence
Day will bear fruit. Under the di
rection of the American Civic Asso
ciation, which has awakened the na
tion to the necessity of eliminating
the red casualty roll of the day, the
Fourth of July will no longer be the
?one day in the year when, through
ignorance, weakness or indifference,
-we sacrifice the bodies ot hundreds
and thousands of little children.
The propaganda has been wide
spread and the results obtained this
Independence Day will be a great im
petus to the movement. Last year
aaw many of the leading cities of the
?country arrayed . under the banner
of the safe and sane Fourth. Among
them were Washington, D. C, Cleve
land, Baltimore, Toledo, Minneapolis,
"Le Mars, Iowa; St. Petersburg, Flor
ida, and Lafayette, Indiana, in which
?places the sale and explosion of fire
works of all kinds were prohibited.
This year St. Louis, Albany, N. Y.;
llarrisburg, Pa., and La Salle, 111.,
"have taken their stand against the
?slaughter of the Innocents. In many
other places restrictions more or less
rigid have been placed on the sale
of the deadly firecracker.
That the movement is not merely a
hue and cry over a very small mat
ter is the principle reason it has
won adherence wherever advocated.
Statistics, as a rule, are not eloquent
pleaders, despite the fact that they
present the cold, unvarnished truth.
But when one is -reminded that 26
little girls were burned to death at
last year's celebration of the Glo- j
rlous Fourth; that 67 death- wore
caused by tetanus; that 19 were kill
ed outright by firearms, eleven by
explosions of powder, bombs or tor
pedoes, and six by cannons or similar
contrivances, making a total of one
hundred and twenty-nine fatalities?
when one realizes the day itself as
sumes a crimson hue indeed. j
Nor was this all. The list of in? I
jured and maimed for life in all parts
of the country totaled the following
alarming proportions: Seventy-two
cases of tetanus; seven victims who
lost both their eyes and thirty-three
who will go through the rest of their j
lives with but ore eye; twenty-six,
unfortunates who lost arms, legs or j
hands and one hundred and fourteen j
who sacrificed one or more of their
In all, including minor injuries
in which no permanent damage was
done, there were just two thousand
nine hundred and twenty-three per
sons, principally children, w|jo paid
the toll to the barbarous custom of
[celebrating the great day.
I The movement for a safe and sane
Fourth does not in any way aim to
j reduce the proper observance of the
' day or to decrease in any way the
I pleasure of the participants. It is
particularly desired, in fact, that the
children shall have greater oppor
tunities for a happy observance of
the day than ever before. It alms to
bring about a more general partici
pation in pleasurable and truly pa
triotic celebrations along with a com
plete elimination of the dangerous
elements which still are in many
places all too common.
I 'The youngsters are very reluc
tant," said Richard B. Watrous, Sec
retary ot the American Civic Asso-1
elation, at the headquarters in Wash
ington, "to forego their customary
firecrackers. But every effort is be
ing made to celebrate the Fourth in
such an enjoyable manner that it will
compensate them for their apparent
loss. The association has concentrat
ed during the past year on the push
ing through of ordinances in the var
ious states and cities, and has left
the preparations of the new and safe
forms of celebration to other societies
and civic organizations.
"The American Playground Asso
ciation in New York City, for ex
ample, has become greatly interested
in the movement and has' planned
many ways of spending the Fourth
without danger. Among the various.
women's societies fighting for the
cause may be mentioned the Daugh-j
ters of the American Revolution.
You will find on Tuesday that mov
ing pictures will play a large part in
the day's festivities, for the Ameri
can people are extremely partial to
them. I wish to emphasize one fact
In particular and that Is that every
effort is being made by those in
charge of the celebrations in the var
ious cities to increase the enthusiasm
of the youngsters and to make them
really enjoy the day." - ,
The moving picture feature of the
safe and sane celebration is new this
year and is expected to prove most
efficacious in spreading the doctrine, j
In Syracuse, N. Y., the Russell Sage \
Foundation has exhibited a film one
thousand feet long entitled "A Sane I
Fourth of July." Its chief characters
are a mayor, his motherless little
daughter, a neighbor and her father- j
less small son, a group of dealers in
fireworks and the members of a sane
Fourth committee. I
The young widow is an ardent sup
porter of the movement against the
sale of fireworks In the town. The
dealers enlist the aid of the politi
cians and start a counter movement
in favor of an old-fashioned celebra
tion. The storm center is the mayor,
whose re-election will be affected by
the stand he tanes upon the issue. |
The attitude of the mayor in the city
council chamber where the fate of the
ordinance is decided and Its effect
upon himself and the young widow
through the lives of their two chil
dren constitute the material for the
Barles of intensely dramatic scenes.
The providing of a suitable pro
gram to replace the old-fashioned fus
ilade that began before dawn and
ended at midnight has been one of
the chief problems of the workers
in the cause. From time to tirao sug
gestions have been sent out to the
various cities and town interested in
saving their children from injury and
: death. "The Patriot," a pamphlet
published in the interest of the move
ment by the Denver Patriotic League,
considers a morning parade both en
tertaining and instructive.
There should be floats representing
1 different periods of our history, such
i as "The Landing of the Pilgrims,"
"The First Thanksgiving," a series of
thirteen floats, each representing the
original colonies, "Martha and George
Washisgton in Colonial Dress," "Bet
sy Ross Making the Flag," etc. Pa
triotic songs and speeches for both
school drildren and grown-ups and,
when properly conducted, a display of
night fireworks under the direction of
experts engaged for that purpose by
the proper authorities.
The historical patriotic pageant
seems to be popular in many parts of
the country. A monster parade of
them passed last year through the
streets of Boston, Mass. In her sis
ter city, Springfield, there were floats
with tableaux depicting the "Signers
of the Declaration," and other pa
triotic events. The foreign-born ele
ment of the city were intensely inter
ested and exhibited floats appropriate
to the customs of their native coun
I The Sane Fourth Association of
Chicago pleased the youngsters and
the grown-ups last Fourth of July In
much the same manner. In return
for limiting the size of the firecrack
ers and strictly forbidding the use ot
blank cartridges and pistols, elabor
ate pageants were offered, military
tournaments by soldiers of the regu
lar army and a huge public display of
fireworks at night that could not fall
to delight the childish heart.
. Pittsburg also believes in the pa
geant scheme for diverting the youth
ful mind from Its hitherto dangerous
forms of celebration. Heretofore,
Pennsylvania has had the blackest
record for Fourth of July carnage,
it being even greater than that of
New York State. In the past, Phil
adelphia has had to distribute Red
Cross hospital tents about the city to
care for the victims. Last year, how
ever, she provided a day military par
ade, a series of children's games in
the parks and a pyrotechnic display
at night. Two years ago a most elab
orate program of tableaux and pa
geants was offered at Charlottesvllle,
Va., with Pittsfield, Mass., a close sec
ond by paying special attention to its
San Francisco last year offered
threj grand celebrations in 'separate
playgrounds with patriotic exercises,
?gymnastic exhibitions, flag drills,
dances and band concerts as the at
traction. The campaign being car
ried on by the Russell Sage Founda
j tion in its department of hygiene
against dangerous celebrations is be- j
ginning to have its effect in all parts ?
of the nation. This organization j
stands for the protection of child life j
and Is one of the most active antag-.
onlsts of the red casualty roll of In
From the firing line this year comes
all sorts of encouraging news to those
who have the welfare of the move
ment at heart. Baltimore is planning
to select four hundred children and
(train them to form United State and
Maryland flags and to sing national
air. Un?ess unforseen circumstances
prevent, the suburb of Walbrook will
present a burlesijue'on the "Old Fash
ioned Fourth," with a parade of chil
dren showing the fatal results of cele- I
bratftig with fireworks.
Milwaukee, Wis., has organized a
permanent committee to complete
plans for a sai.'e and sane celebration.
Little Rock, Ark., will make a spec
ial splurge this year on the motion
picture films depicting the joys of a
safe and sane Fourth. Washington,
D. C, as usual, plans a pyrotechnic
display at ni;;ht and patriotic exer
cises in the morning; last year a
floral automobile parade of great
beauty attracted much attention.
For several weeks past, the Cleve
land, Ohio, Independence Day Asso
ciation has been engaged fn a real
live campaign to show the people
what a sane Fourth means. A novel
feature was the display of appropriate
moving pictures in a large tent
which was pitched in different sec
tions of the city every few days.
Topeka, Kansas, Is to enjoy its
first real sane Fourth this year. The*
plans are in the hands of a committee
appointed by the city commissioners;
the Bchool board has organized the
children for drills and patriotic exer
cises and several of the clubs have of
fered a' display of fireworks in the
Despite the wonderful progress of
the movement, In many places the
Fourth of July is still a Day of Car
nage with parents sitting calmly by
and watching their little children be
ing mangled, tortured and killed. But
each year shows an increase In the
numbers of cities and towns that ea
roll themselves under the Safe ana
Sane Banner. The time Is almost ax
hand, claim the workers in the cause,
when the old fashioned, death-dealing
method of rejoicing over the valorous
deeds of '76 will be but a horrible
memory and in a class with the bru
tal fanaticism that allowed thousands
of children to perish in that tragedy
