UNCLE OSCAR'S LETTER.
A friend ui. near the mountains
asks why I hr.ven't written to the
Sentinel again;well friend it is sim
ply this,---The world is at war; our
people are called upon to give their
time, their money, their live.,, the
editor is giving space, patriotic peo.
ple are buying space in which to
bring before the people the ever urg
ent needs of their country, then
would it not be unpatriotic to ask the
editor for space for such stuff as
Uncle Oscar's letters? But listen!
Two little children started my think
er working. One, a little boy,stop
id his play long enough to .isk:
"Uncle Oscar, Why don't you write
mother letter?" Then I began to
hink. With all the thrilling war sto
'ies that are filling our newspapers
1md magazines today, filling them
.0 the extent of almost crowdinlg
>ut eve.rythiing else, why should a
'hild ask for anything else? .\nd
vhile I was trying to solve this prob
em a little girl in the good town of
ilev was taking turns with two
ither little friends at swinuginug it a
'ome swing at the gate. 'It's m.i
ime next," lioited thiv little girl. -'s

aid I. The little girl stopped, looked
it 6' thoughtfully and replied, "No.
ol haid your time long, long ago.
mtud this solved my problem. Yes we
dlder ones have had our i timeic of
'hilhoorl, our time of fairy days
hen we loved and trusted everybruly
ond now we : re grown up and we fill
vser'y available space with stories of
var a11nd pictures of m'n turned inito
lemons an(d slashing at each other':
hroats and we are robbing the chil
Iren of the quiet hour where simple
tories of love and peace were told
vhich have so much to do with the
nstalling of principles of humanity
.iml brotherly love in the hearts of
Yes, we older ones had our time
ong ago, our time of care-free (lays,
ur time of laughter and sunshine,
>ur time of life's morning when hab
ts were formed, when purposes and
>assions were indelibly fixed by en
rironments in childhood. Now we
lave grown up and it is we who shall
mlpart to the younger ones, by the
mnvironments which we place around'
.hem, the ideas, aims and purposes,
)f life. Shall it be th.t of conquest,
>f bloody battlefields, of broken
varts and weeping eyes. Alas 'such
:hings must be; for the cause of lib
rty and right but should we not
.ive to the childish min(s something
to feed upon beside war, war, war.
If we hold before the childs eyes
nothing but pictures and stories of
Larnage of dying men, starving wo
men and children and of everlasting
hatred one for another then how cita
we hope to build up a world peace
from children thus taught. Then let
us not; infect the spring of youth
with the policy of right by might but
rather right by righteousness. We
are in this war for a rightful cause
an11d every true American should and
will stand loyally under our flag till
every drop of blood is shed, if need
be, but I don't think that every pa
per and magazine should be filledl to
the overflowing with stories con
-trained to imla~nt in the hearts of
sur young people everlasting hatred
or any people.
Yes, little girl, I had my time long
mgo andl I am ready now to ustand by
