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
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
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
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
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
‘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
“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
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
There was served at this banquet:

Those present at the meeting re-1
sponded nobly and contributed on the
spot the grand sum of $126,000, which
sum, nevertheless d<>e> not represent a
drop in the bucket compared to The va*t;
amount of money that is needed to keep
Belgium from actual starvation.

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.

Intolerance '
(Copyright, 191C>. by F'rank Crane)
We have a pretty case of con
science on ill tile l iiiteti States. 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
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
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

opinion. This is a free country, even in
