HONOR YOUR CHILDREN
SAYS HELEN WARE
Evih of Modern Life, Deceit and Dis
honesty, Due to Parents' Tyrannous
Training of Children.
"Honor your father and your mother thlB
has been tho Injunction that parents havo too
often and too long held ns a throat over their
offspring. Honor your children such a re
versal of the Fourth Commandment observed
by parents would do more good In tho world,
In my opinion, than n tyrrnnlzlng assertion of
parental authority. It Is well for children to
honor tholr parents when thoy deserve such
honor. But parents should first seek to merit
this by tholr treatment of their children. Wo
may talk nbout tho evils of modern llfo, of
deceit nnd dishonesty In business, politics and
tho domestic relations; but these evils can't bo
eradicated until tho source Is removed, and
tho souico is in tho homo. Men are what their
parents havo mudo them. Cowardice, treachery
and dishonesty In llfo Invariably develop from
seed sown In tho child llfo."
Miss Holcn Ware, who has distinguished
herself by her charucterlzatlons In dramas of
modern life, was sitting In tho reception room
of her BUlto In tho Vcndlg last evening. Miss
Ware hnd been discussing tho problems of
modern life ns affording material for drama,
and tho conversation turned from marriage to
tho relation of parent and child. Miss Ware,
whoso personality 13 as magnetic as It is em
phatic. Is trenchantly direct In her opinions.
Life, to Miss Ware, Is a serious thing.
"In llfo," eho declared, "the absolutely
greatest things aro truth nnd Justice. All our
evils, all our problems, exist In tho lack of
truth nnd Justice. To get down to funda
mentals, this applies to business, politics, tho
relations of men and women, tho Inequalities,
oppressions and wrongs of our social and
economic life. And to get to tho cause of
untruth, injustice, dishonesty, lying and deceit
wo must go right to tho home whoro the child
is reared. 'Sparo tho rod and spoil the child'
is the very command which has spoiled char
acter and spoiled life. If wo want to correct
abuse wo must correct tho cause, and wo must,
therefore, correct parents.
"Fear is the fundamental evil, the original
sin. In human life. Now children aro taught
to fear their parents, nnd later to fear their
teachers. Fear makes cowards. Punishment
colossal malfeasances of financiers nro ho
more egregious truth the criminal Inconsldcrrtte
ness and unklndness of the parents that Atari
children wrong by making them selfish, fearful
"Husbands nnd wives generally lack full
sympathy and understanding, nnd In nlno out
of ten caBes tho husband Is not absolutely
honest and frank with his wife This results In
antagonism, suspicion, lack of respect and tin
happiness. Then theso Very couples, when
they becomo parents, bring up their children
In such a way ns to make It Inevitable that
they enter similar conditions. Truth, and
absolute truth, should be obsorved In human
relations, and married people should religious
ly renllzo their responsibility to the lives they
bring Into tho world, nnd tho veneration mid
lovo duo those lives. Let parents first apply
tho command of honor nnd respect on their
part. This would do moro good than civic cam
paigns, womnn suffrage propaganda nnd anti
trust IcglslaUon. Tho reform of Incompetent,
unloving, Irresponsible, misunderstanding par
ents would mean tho reform of the race."
Miss Georgia Calnc, playing with Adele." nt
the Garrlck Theatre, owns ono of the finest
konnels on Long Island. In this kennel Is a
fpanlel named Sherlock Holmes. "Sherlock
Holmes," said Miss Calne, "Is tho champion
burglar router of the world. Why. ho can de
tect a burglar n mllo off, and la bo bitter
against them that ho cannot bear to see a bur
glar oven in moving pictures. Recently, before
Adele' started on a tour, I took Holmes to n

Eva Davenport, bounding nnd buxom, spent
tho past summor at Mount Clemens, whero she
observed a painfully restricted diet, taking nil
tho baths on tho program, sat packed In Ico an
hour ench day after a steam bath, and wont
through various forms of exorcise guaranteed
to reduce weight.
"I wns feeling highly elated and thinking my
old friends would notlco my loss," she said tho
other day, "until I came back to tho vicinity of
Broadway and 42d street. The vory first day of
my appearance my conceit was given a crush
ing blow by tho policeman who helped me
across tho street back of tho Times Building.
Why, how-d-you-do. Miss Davenport,' he said
I am glad to see you.' 'And I'm glad to see
you,' I returned, for I havo a special fondness
for policemen they have helped mo over many

Allco Gale, who has scored a pronounced suc
cess in "Todny," which will be ten at tho
Adelphl Theatre, does not believe In being
pessimistic about anything, and Is very op
timistic as to the prospects for general pros
