play of characteristics we fike.
Friendship usually ceases when these
characteristics disappear. Marriage
is a vowed friendship which results
in the desire for sexual intercourse.
The spouses were affected by each
other's characteristics and their af
fection ceases by the termination of
those particular objects. Max Man.
fa ENVIRONMENT RUIN. Yes, why
is a criminal? Is it because of booze,
is it because of environment, or is it
because of vice. Or is it because of
none of these three, but because of
another "because" entirely.
It strikes me clearly that for indus
trial class criminals environment
would easily cover all three of the
above. I have been cited the case of
a person looking down Madison
street, where you will see criminals
who have reached the lowest level,
merely because of the booze consum
ed by them along with the claim that
many of them are college graduates,
etc. But getting down to the
' "cause" you will find that environ
ment caused these booze-criminals.
Vice is an effect, not a cause. Mental
defectives, etc, are effects.
No matter which road of argument
you take you always come back to
that everlasting "cause," unfair
wages, poor working conditions, and
last, but not least, environment You
will find that the hit-and-miss mating
of mental defectives, vice and pover
ty grow out of unfair wages, unfair
working conditions and unfair envi
ronment These make your criminal.
Jacob Cohen, 1523 S. Spaulding av.
CALLING STREETS. It is rather
trying to be riding on a street car line
you are not familiar with and strain-'4P-
ing your ears to the very limit in an
endeavor to hear the conductor an
nounce the particular street you de
sire. But this can easily be remedied
by installing on every car a street re
corder. This device could be placed
Up front in plain view to the pas
sengers. In generous-size print the j
next street would be recorded by a
simple manipulation of rope or lever
by the conductor, who can at the
same time save his lungs for a better
purpose than to shout "Halsted,"
and, despite accurate enunciation,
have it fall into the ears of his pre
cious cargo as "Woxgaw" or some
thing equally ridiculous. Jas. 0. Boy.
LOVE IN THE SCHOOLS. Most
love is born of sacrifice. Boys in
their sixes and sevens do not care
for girls. It is their nature at this
age and foolish to attempt a change.
But when children are beginning
their teens they should be taught in
school the spirit of sacrifice. A boy
should then be assigned to a girl for
a certain period of a week, month or
so and he should be taught to show
the gallantry of Sir Walter Raleigh.
His sentiment for this girl shouM be
aroused by cultivating his imagina
tion. He should be taught to put
himself, in her place and picture how
he would like to be treated if he was
ProX Hollister told my class at Il
linois university: "If we take senti
ment out of life what is there left?"
What true words he spoke. Fullness
and richness of life come to each
one of us as we sacrifice. We don't
need necessarily to give money or
goods or even our time, but we can
give our thoughts to the other fel
low, the girl, and in giving out this
attitude of mind, whether to friend
or enemy, we gain strength to our
selves. Dogmas and creeds should
not separate children forever.
If a boy starts out early in life with
good thoughts about a girl he will
not be so apt to crucify unfortunate
women and innocent babes of these
in his after years. This boy, if
switched around on other girl school
mates frequently until he graduates
will surely form an attachment for
one of these girls until he is head
over heels in love. This will anchor
him to the fixed purpose of an early
marriage with her and the ambition
