Look You, Who Won the
Medals in the Debate
For Anti-Preparedness!
It is a somewhat significant fact that
our newsboys, those representatives of
the people who have not lived in the lap
of luxury and who were not bom with a
silver spoon in their mouths out of which
they would have fed upon considerable
of the fat of the land, whether in the
form of modified milk, especially pre
pared, or stronger diet, should have car
ried the day in the recent debate for
anti-preparedness against the great wave
of public emotionalism (lashed on by
special interests), which is sweeping the
country today.
It is a curious fact, too, that these boys
irho have battled with life and know the
material . side of things better than do
any other boys, should have~fixed their
aspirations upon an ideal of peace which
reaches down to the fundamental prin
ciples.
That they should have pricked that
strange bubble which finds so much fa
vor in many eyes, the bubble of militar
ism which, with iridescent lights, thrown
upon it by eloquent speakers, more or less
sincere, floats about us until it bursts by j
virtue of its own frailty.
That military preparediwps means
peace might carry more conviction to
these boys of the new generation did
they not see plainly the results of this'
system on the other side of the water.
Sidney Berabaum summed up the sit- i
nation in trenchant words when he said:
"In Europe they thought that pre
paredness was a good insurance against
war and destruction.
“They bought a gold brick, didn’t
they?
"They were spending as high as $6.-
662,000,000 a year for this here war in
surance.
"But how did it come out ?
"Why, like they’d been soaked in kero
sene.
"When some fool in Serbia scratched a
match, everything exploded. You know
what happened."
Five hundred of his comrade? applaud
ed vociferously.
The opponents, themselves, were fair
ly won over and defended their ground
half-heartedly.
To the victor the spoils, and Sidney
and his partner. Louis Gottleib, Louis of
the golden tongue, unspoiled by shouting
"extras” in rain and shine on the streets
of Detroit, were rewarded with gold—
gold which to them meant more than all
the money they had scraped together,
penny by penny, in many a give and take
of the daily news, for it *tood as a sym
bol, a recognized appreciation of their
highest efforts toward their aspiration?
and ideals.
No one can accuse these hoys of molly
coddleism.
No one can say that they know nothing
of hard knocks and actual facts.
They can fight, if n**ed he. and would
fight if necessity arose.
JBjjt the anomolv of preparing for peace
by making ready Tor war strike* coldly
at their sense of logic.
And their vision, picked up on the
streets and in many unsavory places, is
an ideal for this country which is the
highest that has ever been conceived. >

Four y< ar- ago nmarso were the big thing
Presidential primaries were a up thing and
there were enough -*’ate> having them so it.at

decide who would be the candidate, and hai t.h«

Roosevelt won enough delegates in the popu

Champ Clark won enough primary endorse-
I tnents to secure a majority vote tn the Demo
cratic convention
Clark was unable to get two-thirds of the dele
gates and wa.- ultiui.-,’* i.' beaten by Wilson,
while Roosevelt was “rubbed of his delega'e
and the nomination given o Taft, who had a
minority of the primary endorsements.
At the beginning of his administration. Presi
dent Wilson announced that it was his purpose
to urge on couir> ■ * the necessity for a country
wide and uniform national presidential primary
act.
Thi*. he believed, would do away with convert
tlon scandals lik*-* *: * one at Chicago and with
apparent unfaime- . such as had taken place
at Baltimore

Hut, on advice of some southern Democrats.
I backed up by that of Alice Pomerene, senator
from Ohio. President Wilson dropped his prese
I dential primary project with the announcement
that it was probably unconstitutional.
This year tti*-re will be a few primaries and a
few* instructed delegates will be chosen.
President -Wilson ,a not planning to make a
I primary campaign
Roosevelt has declined in every instance to
permit the use of his name <*n the primary ballot.
If he if nominated by the Republican*, in ad
dition to the Progressive nomination, it will be
because ’be Republican bosses decide that their
only chance for aucces* is to nominate him.
The nomination will come from the bosses.
So far r.iue i;*-s have chosen delegate* to
the Republican convention, to the number ot
172.
Os these only 74 are instructed delegates.
Os these. Kentucky and Indiana, with 40 dele
gates, are instructed for Fairbanks; Minnesota*
24 delegate are instructed for Cummins; and
North Dakota s 10 delegate* are instructed for

THE HARDEN MEMORIAL
6V 08. FRANK CPtANM
«/op> right. 1»U. by Frank Crnn«)
Into the home of H. K. Harden, at Ke
nosha, \\ i t oiism, stalked that visitor
who “d< ond with etjual f(K)tßtep to the
hall ami hut."
His attendants, Horror and Heart
break, \wre with him,
lie laid his hand on the youngegt .son
of tlu' home, and the little fellow followed
him off, into the land of mystery and
nevermore as all ot us must go when
the order conies.
Out of the ashes of the father’s grrief
arose a beautiful thought, that unfolded
into a beautiful deed.
He would build a memorial to the child
he had loved “and lost awhile.”
Others have erected memorials Man
is the tomb-building animal. There is the
l'aj Mahal, jewel of extravagant love.
Ha re are the pyramids where kings re*
;k '<‘d. There are the churches, libraries,
colleges and all manner of puddings, and
endowed causes.
A thought of pure love is in each of
them, but not alway a thought of wis
dom nor of beauty.
Mr. I>< rdon’s thought was beautiful
.aid wise as well as loving.
On Arbor Hav ho gave to every child
n town a small calalpa tree. Through
the public schools he distributed three
thousand trees, together with instruc
tions about their planting and care.
ou see, the little dead boy did not
live "ii a> a cold and silent mass of stone,
the vain advertisement of vain grief, but
he grew, his memory grew, as a green
i. ng in the hearts of many children; his
>ne life was reincarnated in the most
U autiful tiling (»od ever made—a tree.
The next year as many soft maples
re given, anil the following year elms.
Mary lh Bradford, superintendent of
hools. tell> us that a careful canvass
and report «»f the tree planting was made
the second yenr r and ‘TU of the catalpas
and S'd of the maples were found thriv
;ng. though this numU’r was doubtless
• small, a- many of the children had
moved away <>r passed on to the high
sch 001.
"in H)ir>-aye Mrs. Bradford, “every
< f carried home a fine, healthy little
. - pie tree. This was regarded ns the
greatest g.ft of all. A careful demon
stration of the right way to plant the
tree was made at each school by the
principal or janitor. It was an interest
ing oglit to see the children pouring
out of ta« schools on Arbor Hay, each
with a tree, the roots carefully wrapped
in paper."
Blessed i little Kmil Barden, whose
memory lives on in green leaves and
tunning ap. and blessed his lathers
thong it, and blessed too the army of
children whose hands have been guided
by a c»n < rated inspiration to do about
the cleanest, most unqualifiedly useful
tiling a mortal tan do to plant a tree.
