HONOR YOUR CHILDREN
SAYS HELEN WARE
Evils of Modern Life, Deceit and Dis
honesty, Due to Parents' Tyrannous
Training of Children.
"Honor your father and your mother tills
has been tho Injunction that parents havo too
often and too long held as a threat over their
offspring. Honor your children such a re
versal of the Fourth Commandment observed
by parents would do more good In the world,
In my opinion, than a tyiranlzlng assertion of
parentni authority. It Is well for children to
honor their parents when they deserve such
honor. But parents should first seek to merit
this by their treatment of their chlldicn. Wo
may talk nbout the evils of modern life, of
deceit and dishonesty In business, politics and
the domestic relations; but these evils can't bo
eradicated until the sourco Is removed, and
the source Is In the home. Men are what their
parents have mudc them. Cowardice, treachery
nnd dishonesty In life Invariably develop from
seed sown In the child life."
Miss Helen Warn, who has distinguished
herself by her characterizations in dramas of
modern life, was sitting In the reception room
of hrr suite In the Vendlg last evening. Mis3
Ware had been discussing the problems of
modern life as affording material for drama,
and the conversation turned from marriage to
the relation of parent and child. Miss Ware,
whose personality Is as magnetic as it is em
phatic, is trenchantly direct in her opinions.
Life, to Miss Ware, is a serious thing.
"In life," sho declared, "the absolutely
greatest things arc truth and Justice. All our
evils, all our problems, exist In the lack of
truth and Justice. To get down to funda
mentals, thl3 applies to business, politics, the
relations of men and women, the inequalities,
oppressions and wrongs of our social and
economic life. And to get to tho cause of
untruth, Injustice, dishonesty, lying and deceit
we must go right to the homo where the child
Is reared. 'Sparc the rod and spoil the child'
is the very command which has spoiled char
acter and spoiled life. If we want to correct
abuso we must correct the cause, and wc must,
therefore, correct parents.
"Fear Is the fundamental evil, the original
sin, In human llfo. Now children are taught
to fear tliclr purents, and later to fear their
teachers. Fear makes cowards. Punishment
colossal malfeaaaneea ot flrianclera are no
more egregious than Iho criminal Inconelderate
ness and unklndness of the parents that start
children wrong by maklnsr them selfish, fearful
"Husbands and wives generally lack lull
sympathy nnd understanding, and In nln out
of ten cases the husband Is not absolutely
honest and frank with hla wife. This result In
antagonism, suspicion, lack of respect nnd tin
happiness. Then these very couples, when
they become parents, bring up their children
In such a way as to make It Inevitable that
they enter similar conditions. Truth, and
absolute truth, should be observed In human
relations, and married people should religious
ly realize their responsibility to the lives they
bring Into the world, nnd the veneration and
lovo duo those lives. Let parents first apply
tho command of honor and respect on their
part. This would do more good than civic cam
paigns, woman suffrage propaganda and anti
trust legislation. The reform of Incompetent,
unloving, Irresponsible, misunderstanding par
ents would mean the reform of the race."
FLASHES FROM "STARS"
Miss Georgia Calne, playing with Allele,' nt
