Wanted—A New Field
For a Worthy Man Whose Ability We Recommend This is a liner ad. which we have de cided to move to this column to show our contempt for the Osier theory. Besides, we are somewhat interested in a Detroit man whose extremity demands the very position you may have to give him. He didn’t come into the office with his ad. We met him on the street. We had met before, />n the street, or when he had come to The Times office us; a visitor. He .has been identified for a number j years with the insurance busine>s, as a solicitor. He is well known. Always a supporter of The k Times and its policies, hi* enthusiasm brought him with a word of encouragement and cheer i for the newspaper’s makers. But as we met and exchanged greet ings, with a “How are you?’’ we failed to hear the customary “Fine; fine.” What pain in a heart that word “fine” often hides from the world. We had met at the very time when our friend had reached the conclusion that he could no longer deceive anybody; when he had resolved that he must put away pride and unbosom himself. He stopped and braced himself for the doing of that from which a man will hold aloof until the very last. “I am not well, old man,’ he said. *There is a great deal on my mind. IC I am no longer a young man; my business requires a strength of body, a ruggedness of mind and a convincing per sonality that I sometimes feel I no longer possess. I feel that lam being crowded out. The returns from my efforts show it. I am making the hardest kind of a fight, but the odds are great.’’ There is considerable tragedy in those words. They are particularly tragic as com ing from one w’ho has cherished asso ciations, both business and social, he would like to preserve, but who faces the oncoming of old age with the fear that all must be sacrificed. The trouble with this man is that he has gotten into a rut and cannot get out.' W'e want to help him get out. Not a strong man, physically, but still powerful mentally, there is much usefulness in him. and what he needs is anew field of endeavor, in perhaps a bit easier road to travel. The Times does not believe that what Osier said is true. * The Times DOES believe that a man’s BEST WORK should be done after he reaches 40. This man for whom we speak needs only the association of someone to en tourage him, and if that someone is available The Times stands ready to vouch for character, willingness, trust worthiness and ability. ..If you have the place, something that does not require great physical strength, either inside or outside, please commu nicate with the editor of The Times. We solicit for a man we know to be in every sense, worthy. The Child Who Must Get Along On $75 a Day And ar Matter of Biscuits Prominent Detroiters gathered Mon*! day night in the convention hall of a I Detroit hotel. There was a woman there to address them—a Belgian woman- Mad.ime 1.. tt, Dupriez, of T>nuvain. She told these Detroiters of Belgian children. ‘They do not laugh,” she said. “They are weak and sickly. ‘They are growing up among ruins and devastation and amidst starvation and anguish. ‘Three cents a day keeps a Belgian child alive—just a biscuit and some chocolate. “For $1 a month, you can keep a Bel gian child alive.” A striking object lesson was provided for those who were present at the ban WEDNESDAY, MAY 2, 1917 quet which had Madame Dupriez as a guest of honor, by a comparison of that which was served at the banquet table with the daily menu of one Belgian person. There was served at this banquet: ✓ rroam of Asparamis Aux l routon* Celery Olßes Radishes FMet of So!»* Sauce Marituery Roa** ■Sprin* Chicken Citbiet Satire Potatoes. »u Gratir.

Children in Belgium are STARVING. REMEMBER THAT. V 0 We see by the papers that Mrs. Wil liam K. Dick, who was the widow of John Jacob Astor, has won her suit, brought for four-year-old John Jacob Astor. in the New York courts. Mrs. Dick contended that the Astor boy should not be expected to eke out an existence on anything less than $75 a day. One item that figured in the suit and which was set forth as necessary to the baby's well-being, was a mink robe that cost SSOO. And there had to be a mink muff to keep the four-year-old hands warm. That cost S3O. The court allowed the $75 a day until the boy comes into the $3,000,000 for tune that awaits him. What a lot of cupe of chocolate. And biscuits. Mulligan! (l T m, Urn, Urn!) Ever eat “mulligan?” Asa preparedness measure, get a mul ligan recipe from the next tramp that comes to your door. It’s about the eatingest thing there is. Ask any tramp. He knows/ “Mulligan” is a stew —and those who are “in the know'” say that it is one of the few foods upon which alone life can be sustained. If America ever gets to the mulligan state of affairs the hobo will be the best chef in the land,, for he knows the inner most secrets of mulligan construction. In mulligan there are meat, vegetables and bread. Simple, to be sure—but to know how to put these things together so as to make high class mulligan— tfcere is where the art comes in.

The overwhelming sentiment of the country has forced us into war. ('otigress iias declared »t. It is the duty of all Amer icans to stand by the expressed will of their representatives, each to do what he can to insure his country’s success. lint there is a large number of |H*oplo who were opposed to our taking anna, and who conscientiously believe that our difficulty with Germany might have been better settled some other way. To call these people names, to accuse them of being Germanophiles, or trait ors, or enemies to their country, to give the word “pacifist” a sneering twist, as tho all who strive for peace do so bc cause they are cowardly, this is not only intolerance, but cheap and nasty intol erance. I am a pacifist, and shall be proud to wear the title to my dying day. I be lieve that war is colossal stupidity, the result of the “great illusion” under which the backward-minded govern ments of the nations re^t. I favor our going to war with Ger many, however, because in the present crisis there is no other way out for us. Any government G criminal that does not protect its citizens to the limit of its powers. Furthermore, the irresistible logic of event> shows plainly that no peace is possible with a government like the pres ent one of Germany, which substitutes self-interest for humanity and morals, except its destruction. I am for war with Germany precisely as I would favor ■hooting a mad dog or catching a bur wlar. But this does not at all mean that my opinion of national militarism has changed. All thru this war we ought to be getting ready for permanent peace. We ought to line up with the allies with the constant intention of forming with 'hem a league of Peace, the beginnings of a civilized world government, when we hafg settled with the disturber of tho jieace. When we get thru with this ter rific struggle 1 believe the democracies of the world will he in the saddle, and we can take steps toward general dis armament. If Russia, France, England and America will stand together after the war we can rid the earth of its aw ful incubus of armaments. We can then have a preparedness by mutual agree ment. which is a million times cheaper ♦ han preparedness by arming each na f ion to the limit. But there are many of my fellow pa cifists who do not follow me. They are is loyal a I. They are entitled to their opinion. This is a free country, even in war time. It is no place for violent in tolerance.
