textile mianufact urers squarely and
defini tely on record as fa voring, and
earnest ly urging such legislation.
Registration of Births.
Te Ilack (if proiler registria tin oif
births and consequentlv iniability' to
ascertinii positively the ages of child
ren is a const anlt liinid ae to those
who are' conscientijoustly tryying to ad
here rigidly to thle requirmennt s of
the recently enacted law govering~
Ite cimploymneint of cliir en of tet
yea rs--commonly known as the
'Child Labor Law."' In fact thtat ab
sence of age record is in many in
staindes a shield to grasping andt uin
sortiputous parents against whiose
greed the law is intended to operate.
It is trueo it will take time for such ai
~; record to be of value, butt this mecre
>ly emphasizes the importance of de
laying no longer in commencing the
accumulation of data, the need fot
which is already at hand.
Our State's position as to divorce i
Swptl known. Is it not by reason there
specall incumbent upon us ti
'"thow safeguards around the enterinj
~ito marriage relation? The early ag
at which matrimonial aliances, wre
formed is in itself startling. The fre
quency wilth which the relation is sev
ered-merely by imutnal consent or by
desortion-is i deplorable ienace to
morals. We voice the sentiment, not
only of the mill managers, but, we be
lieve, of the more thoughtful and dis
cerning mill operatives, when we urge
the requiring of marriage licenses and
greater watchfulness as to the viola
Uions of existing laws.
-Irrevocably opposed, as we are, to
''elass legislation''-to (lie passage
of any laws designated either to exer
cise restraint over, or to accord special
privileges to any one class of citizens,
alone-we have been unable to give
our support to the measure hereto
fore introduced 'intended to require
school attendance on 'the part of the
cotton mill operatives only.
We admit that the facilities now
provided by many of the mill cor
porations, the longer term of the mill
'schools, etc., would empliasize Ithe
necessity of compelling the youth of
tile cotton mill villages to accept the
educational advantiages thus afforded.
Still it mu-st be remembered that it
is from tle farms that the bulk of
our textile workers have come, and
are still comingil, and that the statis
ties as to lak of edluation-so esaily
obtained f.rom the compact mill vil
ilarge-still refleets to a .rea rver extent
the educational dificiencies of the re
mote rural distriets.
There are already more negro chil
dren than wlhites enrolled in tlie pub
lie schools of our State-the pereen
I.age of' attendanice of tle negro chil
dHren is larger. Ibr much longer will
lie senseless fear of rciein.. (7) the
ieioes into sellools (eter us from re
qu'iing- aln acceptaice by the elhildren
of illiterate whites of tile opportuli
ties of learning which our public
school system offers? Through what
other method can a more intelligent
citizenship be obtained.
We earnestly urge, the pas
sage of a. law compelling school at
tendanee by all children bet ween the
ages of' eight and twelve, regardless of
residence or avocation of parents.
