"The home is lacking in its (teach
ing of morality, its chaperondge, in
its teaching of chivalry, and, in. fact,
it is woefully lacking all around.
"Educational facilities are not
- "what they ought to be. We turn pu
pils loose half Baked, with a lot of
fads and isms. They can make
punched brass work and other fool
things and cannot make dollars and
cents, and would not know how to
spend money if they earned, it.
"I do not decry general education.
A knowledge of English, literature,
arts and sciences of every kind are
good if the child has both: time and
means to acquire it, but when it is
an established fact that It is a-ques-tion
of life and death, of dollars and
cents, of bread and butter at the age
of 14, it is much better to equip the
girl to earn that bread and butter
than to fill her up with a lot of Ideas
on things that mean nothing to her
and will not bring her any return.
"The solution to my mind must
come by education moral education
in the home, vocational education In

Constantinople, Dec. 10 (Mailed
From Salonika to Avoid Turkish
Censorship). The "United States
embassy is. today one of the great
est all-around art galleries and mu
seums in existence. When Turkey
declared war the interests of seven
nations were turned over to Ambas
sador Morgenthau They were Eng
land, France, Belgium, Servla, Rus
sia, Switzerland and the Argentine
The representatives in Constanti
nople of the warring powers, fearing
confiscation of their property, simply
moved all of their effects to the
American embassy. The example waa
followed by leading citizens before
they left for places of safety. And
all, excepting those who wanted to
turn over money In fear that the
local banks would be looted, were ac
commodated by Ambassador Mor-genthau.
Here are a few of the things that
the ambassador and Mrs. Morgen
thau have:
Most magnificent collection of
butterflies, practically priceless,
owned by the representative of the
London Times.
Two pedigreed Angora cats, prop
erty of the wife of the Russian am
bassador. Pedigreed English bulldog from the
French embassy.
The priceless Goeblin tapestries
from the French embassy.
Switzerland's collection of cloi
sonne vases and other art objects.
The Russian ambassador's picture
So wonderful is the collection that
a committee of Turkish women asked
Mrs. Morgenthau if she would not
exhibit them all a day or so each
week, charging an admission fee to
be turned over to the Turkish red
cross Out of a sense of delicacy to
the owners, Mrs. Morgenthau was
forced to refuse, but she salved the
refusal with a donation af 100 night
shirts for Turkish patients.
