WHY NOT STAY YOUNG? , Time was and yet will be again when human beings 'will not grow old at fifty, decrepit at sixty, and dead or as good as dead at seventy. If we knew how to' live and sometimes we shall know we would at seventy just be becoming useful citi zens, worth something to ourselves and to the people ground us. Sometime we shall learn how to work and how to play; how to eat; how to sleep. We shall learn how to conserve and preserve the en ergy that lets the child keep in motion all day long with out fatigue. . We shall learn how to make our hands and minds work without weariness and without wearing out. Old age will lose its tenors of loneliness. We shall rot look forward to an end of hope and discontinuance of ambition. We shall instead contemplate life as one long con tinuous opportunity to improve ourselves; to aid and bet ter others; to contribute to as well as share in the com mon good, and old age, if there shall be such a thing, will be filled with enjoyment of the fruits of long activity, un blemished by regrets and untinged with sadness. Even now there is an occasional mortal whose life stands out not only because of the attainment of unusual age, but from the fact that in the fullness of years here is the ability still t foamplish and enjoy. A writer for the September number wr; uuoa noaise- keepiig has ren. . One at eigfoty is still holding fast tc the ideas of youth, regretting that her friends hamper her activities, the otter at ninety-three rejoicing in her years and their fruitfulness, writing, what she lias learned that other may profit from her experiences; holding the candle of her life tliat otfiers may see the path along which she has so happily end. successfully journeyed. The real secmt of these two women, who are, but BhxiUld not be, umusual, seems to have been work and ' enthusiasm. They ltv holnve that it has been this sombination ttiat has made then! live long and be happy. "Winer, one is leinully busy and eternally interest eel," said the Vr one, she of ninety-three, "the years just Slip along Vu dont notice them." la that the s'et of long years? Is that the akliy 0f life? Ia the textbook life simple if we but read it aright? One thing is cert a, most of us do not know how to I've. , As in the old-fashioVj nre.pace, half the energy of life's' fire goes up the chiLy.

Once in France, every effort was made under the same tactics to force the American commander-in-chief to consent to having the American forces used as re placements for the French army and the British also ad vocated the same plum to reinforce their own armies. Before the American had completed their training in tienth warfare, it was quite a fashion for French gen eials to drop in, inspect the Americans and then exclaim to the allied world that the Americans were magnificent troops and inference ready and fit to take over a sec tor of their own. It might save a considerable amount of European jock eying if the United States would make clear that we will r.ot be stampeded into any course of action, do not rulish being told our own business, are not interested in pool ing propositions and prefer not to continue acting the lole of a grab-bag or an international Santa Olaus. Shortage of Help in the Home Is Often Chargeable to the Housewife By MRS. FRANK D. FULTON, Winnetka, 111. ' WOULD STRIKES END THEN? lit has been saw! that miners would never strike if coal mines are nationalised. There could be no disputes between employer and employe, they argue, if the public cwns the mines, and is ait once employer and employe. This same argument was brought forth in Great Britain at the time coal miners there asked for nationali sation of the industry. David Lloyd George speaking for the British government refused the Brdltish miners' plea. He could not be persuaded to believe that nationalization in itself could, or would, end strikes. He pointed to the British railroads. These roads had all the conditions of nationalization during and after the war. They were in control of the government and the cost came directly out of the pock ets of the public. Higher waiges than ever were paid .ailroad workers, and they had better working conditions. "The strongest argument from the public's stand point in favor of nationalization of coal manes,' said the premier, "was that there would be no strike against the state. "That argument was answered by the railway strike.',', Whatever arguments there may be for nationaliza tion of coal mines, or railroads, or any other industry, in the United States or elsewhere, it cannot be that it will end strikes. If the public is the employer, and the work er is dissatisfied, what is there to prevent him from quit ting work, singly or collectively? Nothing. No, nationalization of mines is not a 'cure' or "a 'preventative remedy' for labor strikes. ' Better by far is the proposed court of industry and final appeal to the people, INVITING TROUBLE. If there is one thing that may make it necessary for us to go "over there" again, in case war should occur in iuiope, it will most likely be the very thing that Senator Lodge is so very strenuous about. If the world knows that we will go over there in case of necessity, we will not have to go. If we had, prior to the war, established the prestige that we now have, and if Germany had known our fight ing qualities and willingness to fight in a good cause and that she could surely count on our taking a hand in case she started a war, she would not have taken a ehsnce. r for the September nrnnoer ott uooa wo. pledged otfrseW to garths f id of thg ceuntrjes found two such people, and they are both wo- haVoring peace Germany wouM porVattiwAA. pledge by us now that we will stand by in case oi war a.nir throw our sword in the scale against the outlaw country will do more to insure our not having to go than anything else that could be done.' ,' s vv The policy of Lodge and his allies is a chicken-hearted one.

' ' killed th.? of goveni- the urg- er yield find lW'e bas,s The greatest problem in relation to the operation of the home is ob taining someone to assist the housewife in doing the necessary work. Inability to obtain assistance is not because of lack of compensation noi of proper working; conditions. v There are plenty of women who would be glad to work in the home if it were not for the social stratum to which they were relegated. Many excellent cooks are working in btores, shops, factories find offices becuf of the accepted difference im social position between girls who work in such places arid girls who work in homes. ' Work in the home should be classed as the highest form of employ ment. The making and maintenance of the home is the principal object of all men and women. The wife ia responsible for the conduct of the home, the same as the husband is responsible for the conduct of his busi ness. The rep"on for shortage of help in the home is chargeable, in most instances, to the manager of the home. The man occupies a position of authority, as a rule, because of his ability to direct others. The wife is placed in charge of the home for other reasons, with the result that the foreman of the house knows less about it-, mar.r.gcir.cnt end t'.:c wcr!: to to done than the employee who is assisting. , I suggest that in trying to solve the probhm of assistance in the home wo start by educating ourselves. The solving of the problem of how to operate the home is squarely up to the wife. To solve this prob lem satisfactorily the must learn to do the work in the home and in addi tion lenrn how to .intelligently direct others.

The reason is, tha .there is a little uncertainty as to what socialism is, at Iest in the average mind.
