A BETTER USE FOR ICE. There
wasn't any ice with which to keep
baby's bottle of milk cold; it spoiled.
Baby's mother didn't like to give baby
that milk, but she couldn't get an
other bottle and baby was crying
so hungry was the baby!
The baby drank the milk and
A few days later a little white
hearse carried baby away, leaving a
lone, tired, heartbroken mother in her
On the same night that baby's milk
spoiled" a man and a woman sat down
at a table in a restaurant blocks
away. The man beckoned to a
"A quart of wine!"
And pretty soon the waiter came
back with a bottle of champagne
wrapped up in lots of cool ice, nicely
set off in a silver bucket
The man and his companion would
not have liked the champaigne if it
had not been cold. Of course, it
wouldn't have killed either of them
to have done without the ice; but they
had the PRICE and so they got ICE.
Baby's-mother had not the PRICE;
hence, baby did not get enough ICE
to keep its bottle of milk cold.
Don't you think there must be
something wrong with the civiliza
tion, that has enough ice for wine bot
START RIGHT. The taking over
by the government of the Sayville
wireless plant is a proper though be-
lated action. At the very beginning,
not of the war, but of the discovery of ,
wireless telegraphy, the United
States should have pre-empted the
right of operating itself all stations,
powerful enough to maintain direct i
communication with other conti
nents. We have let a number of goodV
things slip into the hands of privatei
ownership in the past and now find it
hard to pry them loose. It is just as
important for the United States tot
retain control and have full knowl
edge of all lans of intercommunica
tion with European countries as it is;
to control the imports and exports
from and to those countries.
It is, as well, entitled to the profits,
of operating such radio stations if;
there be any profits and should bear'
the loss if there be any loss. In other,
words, they should be owned by'
Uncle Sam and operated for the bene-
'filfof his people just as the mails arel
and the cable and telegraph ought to-i
be. There will come a day when the
people will be awfully sorry they"!
turned the wireless privilege loose.
