We Need That Recorder’s
Court Grand Jury NOW,
Mr. Wayne Prosecutor
It was against public policy, The Times
believes, for the Wayne county auditors
to withhold the peculations of Anthony
J. Kloka, mortgage tax clerk, from pub
licity, and to allow Kloka to keep his
place in the county treasurer’s office
after they knew his irregularities.
The auditors may submit, however,
that they have saved the taxpayers the
$16,000 Kloka misappropriat* I and pro
tected them, by exacting the return of
SIO,OOO in cash and a bond t. cover any
loss up to $20,000.
They had Kloka, too, in a position'
where he could be watched and where hi
was rendered quite harmle-.
Any promise of immunity they have
made to Kloka would amount to nothing. |
but the auditors deny having made any
such promise.
It reflects upon the auditors that the
peculations of Kloka would still be un-,
known to the public if there had not
been a change in county treasurers, and
it is only natural, in view of all the cir
cumstances, that there are suspicions
that Kloka has fared better than he I
would have fared but for others impli
cated.
These reports call for the most thoro
investigation—an investigation that can
not be made to the complete satisfaction
of everybody w ithout the arrest and pros
ecution of Kloka.
No, it makes no difference really
whether the auditors erred in their judg
ment, Kloka’s prosecution is NOW de
manded.
And we suggest to the prosecuting at
torney of Wayne county, in view of w hat
has come to light, that right now' would
be a pretty good time for him to cease
his opposition to a recorder’s court grand
jury, so that tribunal may go ahead and
get at the bottom of things HERE
ABOUTS.
Under Guise of Patriotism
We Must Not Permit the
Exploitation of Our Children
This world war into which we have
entered to make the world safe for
democracy must not be allowed to de
stroy any of the safeguards we have by
alow, painful steps erected for the cause
of democracy.
Aside from the strain and stress of
battle, danger lurks in every war.
The unsleeping forces of greed and
selfishness are always on watch to regain
lost ground.
Much has been said and rightly so as
to how this country can profit from the
experience of those other great democra
cies—England and France.
Our allies can teach us much about
warfare in the trenches and on the seas.
They can also give us much guidance
concerning matters at home.
And one of the lessons the allies can
teach us is that we must not throw our
children into the furnace of war.
There must be no wholesale suspension
of restrictions of the hours children are
permitted to labor.
There must be no let-up in child wel
fare work.
There must l>e no paralysis of school
systems.
At the beginning of the war, in Eng- 1
land and France, in the frantic endeavor
to increase the industrial output neces
sary for carrying on the struggle, chil
dren were thrown into the factories as
if they were so much fuel for a fir<\
The cry was that everyone, even the
children, must do their bit.
And then came the aftermath.
Young girls and boys quickly showed
the physical strain of long hours of con-)
finement in the factories, whether doing
day work or night work.
Education was being neglected.
Morals were being atlccted.
England and France were fighting to
make the liberties of the next genera
tions secure and. while doing so, were
denying those very generations the
chance to grow up strbr.g in 'body, edu
cated in mind and clean in spirit.
The result was there had to be a speedy
return to restriction of child labor, to en
forcement of school laws and to all safe
guards necessary for child life.
The danger England and France faced j
and speedily took steps to overcome, is
facing us now.
Already in highly industrial states like
New Jersey, Pennsylvania and New York,
there have been “defense” proposals to
suspend or repeal child labor laws which
were put upon the statute books only
TUESDAY, JULY 10, 1917
after the bitterest fbrht with special in
terests.
‘ If not promptly checked, this move
will spread.
There is no excuse tor enslaving the
weak bodies of growing children.
It would Ih 1 nothing less than smcidi
for the l nited States t-» risk
of her manhood in t!.i treru hi i•" 1
soaked France, while at homo we weiv
subjecting our future men and women to
a killing blight that would break down
their bodies, blunt their minds and abate
their morals.
The Quickest May, Now,
To Peace, Is to Prepare
For a Lom»\ Hard War
Talk of peace, fears that England will
soon be starved out and prt*dictior> that
the present Allied successes mean an
early end to the war should be put away
on the shelf by Uncle Sam.
In spite of the recurrent flurries of
talk on the big features of the war. the
Allies don’t want peace without a vic
tory, England cannot possibly be starved
in a long time and Germany isn't licked
until licked on her own territory.
Revolution in Germany might settle
things suddenly, at any time, but Ger
mans are not Russians.
Speculation on these points may be the
business of unattached diplomats and
news correspondents, but it has n<> place
in Uncle Sam’s program, and it can only
have the effect of confusing.
It must not be permitted to. in th<
slightest degree, influence prosecution of
Uncle Sam’s war business.
In augmenting army and navy forces,
in promoting food production, in enlarg
ing oceanic and other transportation fa
cilities, in providing all the various
of war. we should go ahead exactly as if
war was to continue for a generation or
more, with our nation bearing the big
part of the burden.
We should aim at nothing less than
full power to win. no matter how large
the power demanded.
There is no longer any room or excuse
for pacifism or apathy.
Hope that the war may end this year
is legitimate but it must not influence,
one particle, our preparation for an in
definite struggle.
The war business is a business in w hich
the only insurance is adequate power.
We have allies, but our first policy should
be to prepare to rely uj>on ourselves
alone.
It may not finally prove to have been
necessary, but it will mean national
safety.
These remarks are particularly appli
cable to the matter of promoting increas
ed production of foodstuffs.
While the agitation for city garden-,
and greater individual effort may yield
surprising results this year, it is not too
early to begin systematic effort for big
ger crops next season.
This season the efforts have been spo
radic and largely without system.
There should l>e just as much order
and system about conscripting vacant
lots as about conscripting backward men
for army and navy, and, thru the tax as
sessors. we have easy means of register
ing the lots.
The arable, non-producing lot should be
listed and either be made to produce war
potatoes or war tax? *.
Legislation may be required to get
“slacker” property into the ranks, and
now’s the time to get bu«y.

You see—it’s this way, Cap—hope you
won’t take offense but this soldiering
business is apt to go to your head —and
I’m writing to you to ask you to hear
in mind that this is an American army
we’re raising, and not Prussian. And
we’d like it if you maintain discipline
and secure efficiency without being a
martinet, and without any of this goose
step and superior class stuff that seems
to afflict most armies.
Wo meaning the plain, ordinary folks
that compose this United States—are
sending out, to be under your care, 5U0,-
000 young men. They are the flower of
our flock. I)o you realize what it means
to take all the men between the ages of
twenty-one and thirty-one out of a na
tion? Well, it’s a good deal like taking
a pound of a man’s flesh "nearest the
heart."
These boys are to lie under you. You
will have power to send them to their
death. They must obey you as slaves
their master.
The army is an island of absolute mon
archy in our great sea of democracy.
We stand for it l>ecause it seems to be
the only way to get fighting done prop
erly.
Hut you are human. And a human be
ing entrusted with absolute power over
other human beings is mighty liable to
get spoiled. And the smaller the man
the more "a little bnef authority" goes
to his head.
What we ask of you is to remember all
of this, realize your responsibility, and
treat these boys of ours as you would
treat your own sons.
Remember, please, they’re not hire
lings; they’re not of a lower "class" than
you. They are just as good as you are,
and are going into this business not be
cause they’re driven, but from a high
sense of duty.
Don’t be too anxious to make profes
sional soldiers of them. They want to
be good soldiers, but they are not aim
ing to make soldiering a life work. When
they get thru with Germany they ex
pect to come bark home to their jobs.
They are not soldiering because they
like it, hut because they don’t like it, and
l>ecause they hope by destroying the
blatant militarism of Germany that there
will l»e mighty little need of armies
thereafter.

boys—regular United States folks—and
—treat ’em white, is all we ask.
