who oppose this ordinance. W. I. K. "IN GOD WE TRUST." In these times of military agitation-I think it is about time that we Christians had a little say. On our coins the U.

Pray for light Though opposed to equality and dem ocracy, Leo was fond of the United States; page 327: "In our judgment' and affection America occupies the same place and rights as other states, be they ever so mighty and imperial."

I have tried to avoid mixing myself into the lengthy arguments on prostitution which have appeared in The Day Book from time to time, but I must at last give my opinion. Prostitution has existed since ante diluvian times and I will venture to say it will exist as long as the world . remains. It may be eliminated, but never eradicated. It is a natural in stinct with. many. What have you to say for your married women that go astray? What is the cause of so many divorces? There are instances where men are to blame for leading girls astray, but that girl can t be altogether blame less. It is impossible to wrap around your finger the girl with high ideals and self-respect Although it may be that you have made her a lot of false promises, there is where the girl or woman is sometimes weak. As to the dress, I fear you are much wrong. When a habit is once formed you think very little of it Take, for in stance, tie bathing beaches. Go there frequently and you will soon lose your irritability. Once you be come accustomed to a natural body your thoughts will be just as natural . I believe if the girls would wear noth- V ing but tights there would not exist any more evil than at the present time. I love to see a person dress in comfort I think a girl with low neck dress and short skirt appears in the prime of youth. It is good for her health and she enjoys it What is the use of having a lot of unnecessary clothing on a hot day when there Is np rail for some? Charles 0. J. Lindholm, 1554 Highland ay.
