FOR THE BENEFIT
Bill Introduced In Senate and
House In Their Behalf---The
Church Organization Will
Also Give Practical Aid.
WILL PROMOTE EDUCATION
The Significant Movement of the
Times Is That of the Centenary
of the Methodist Episcopal
Church South---Will Spend Mil
lions Among the Uneducated.
The fact that several thousand sol
diers were unable to understand the
orders given them from their superiors
and that many, many thousands could
not sign their own namos to their
questionnaires brought to light a con
dition so serious that two Southern
Ropresentatives at Washington are
now introducing bills to promote the
education of Illiterates throughout the
length and breadth of America. Sena.
tor Hoke Smith, of Georgia, has intro
duced a bill in the Senate "to promote
the education of illiterates, of persons
unable to understand and use the Eng.
lish language, and othbr resident per.
son' of foreign 'birth," and the same
measure has been introduced in the
House by lion. William B. Bankhead,
The introduction of this important
bill means a great deal to the South,
which, because of its negroes and
mountain whites, has long borne a
reputation for illiteracy out of propor
tion to that of ,the rest of the coun
try. Just what steps will be immedi
ately taken as the result of the passage
of the education of illiterater bill at
Washington cannot be stated at this
time, but, certainly, practical meas
ures will be put into operation for the
establishment of schools in both rural
districts and cities.
Other organizations besides that of
t,he govergmnent are at work on the
saipe problem-the establishmont of
schools in the heart of tenement dis.
tricts and rural communities being a
matter of first importance with all of
them. One of the most significant
movements of the times in this con
nection is that of the Centenary of
the Methodist Episcopal Church,
South, because that denomination will
expend within the next five years over
$3,000,000 among the uneducated
classes in the Southern and Western
States. The church it to raise a fund
of $35,000,000 in an eight-day drive in
April, the financial campaign being a
part of the Centenary Celebration of
the denomination. The money is be
ing raised with a view to putting the
work of the church on a business
basis, the church considering its duty
to the illiterates here in America to be
among the matters of first importance
which it should undertake. A survey
has been made and the result of the
campaign will be the apportionment of
$3,000,000 among the various illiterate
population as' followvs: Mountain pop
ulation, $750,000; immigrant, $900,000;
negroes, $500.000; Indians, $150.000;
cotton mill population, $150.000; Chris.
tian literature for all at them, $100.000.
With the definite step undertaken
at Washington. wvith one deonomination
already completing its plans for fur
thering the work among them, and
with other churches and organiizations
getting ready to join hands in their
behalf, iit is more than possible that
the illiterntes of the South are in a
fair way to soon heeome edlucated citi
sens of the United States.

SAVING AS A HABIT.
Habit is stronger timn precept or
morality or prudence or almost any
thing. We get the habit of doig cer
tain things, and go ahead, doing the
same things day after day, year after
year until the end, says Florida Times
Union. Something will break into our
routine and we may be forced to make
.-nanges, but whatever we are required
to do or desire to do a)1d are allowed
to do for a space of time-more or lead
-becomes flxed in our systems and we
!ake pains and work hard to comply
with the impulse that comes it a cer
tain time of dlay or week or minute
and keep up our habits. During the
wiar period we have gotten Into the
habit of saving soiethiing. It tuay not
be a great amuount or we may not save
it every day, but once it week or a
monti we feel that some0 money must
b)e put aside to pay for LIberly bonds
or Witr Savings stamaps. A greiat inany
Of us ithave had a real hard tine trying

spite of that we have saved a little,
somehow, to pay our Installments, and
obligations ninde to the government
mnd for war work of various kinds
have been Imlet.
Very little has been sai( as to the
probable attitulde of the peace confer-.
ence toward the submarine. It seems
rather surprising that so far there has
been no agitation for its absolute albo
lition, says Philadelphia Record. There
are many who think the nations should
ogree to scrap the tin devil fish. In the
control of unprincipled people it is a
potent instrument of wrong, and no
decent fighters should be asked to sub
ject themselves to the danger of fright
ful and ignominious death for the sake
of its doubtful rewards. The experi
ence of a British submarine which was
almost destroyed by depth bonibs
dropped by a fMiendly destroyer, a
watchful American mistaking it for an
enemy U-boat, is enough to sleken
even stout hearts. Some agreement
surely can be reached to put out of
commission such soul-searing, devilish
Newspapers and newspaper men are
sometimes accused of failure to prac
tice what they preach, but this can
never be said about the people who
work on thie newspapers of London,'
England, says Winnipeg Free Press.
This striking faict in connection with
recruiting was mentioned in a recent
speech of Sir Auckland Gseddeis: Of
10,000 men and hoys employed by Lon
don newspaper olles 5,000 joined the
colors, aind at the imiomtient of the airmiis
tice being signed there were not thirty
eii fit for general service in all the
London newpapeipr oflices. That was
a record, said Sir Auckland, whleh
pIlaiced the press ahead of every trade
group in the matter of recrulting.
