Very probably founders of families or those who ought to be founders of families, pay no more serious atten tion to discussions of race suicide than the average matinee girl pays to the Santo Domingo treaty, the rights of American citizens In the Isle of Pines, the question of free trade with the Philippines or of municipal ownership ot public utilities. But everyone likes to witness a hot contest between game cocks, dogs or men, and from the purely grandstand point of view the unending war wagea Detween the ad vocates of unlimited families and their opponents Is decidedly entertaining. President Roosevelt always strives to be upon the popular side of ev. erything. With tho exception of the recent panic he has very nearly ac complished his purposes. ' Nothing is more etrtain to call forth plaudits of the many than the spectacle of a great man laying aside the cares of state to whoop up the birth rate before a Mothers' congress, but while we ap plaud we cannot fall to see, even with our eyes shut, that there are two sides to tho argument. , Mrs. J. II. Cross man, who Is courageous even if she I wrong, comes out in a perfectly flat footed advocacy of the limiting of families, especially among the poor, .as a measure to reduce the sum of human misery and crime. She points 'out that when the mother of ten, tho (youngest of which is two weeks old, Is ; (breaking her back over a washtub, and the father is earning a meager giving as an unskilled laborer, - the i odds are greatly !in favor of some of the children turning, out badly, to jpay nothing of the mother finding an early grave, and grudging to it in pain and poverty unspeaka'ble. It Is argued, by. subscribers to the Roosevelt Idea that to be poor and one of a large family 1 a great thing for the young American, since most of our presidents," frenzied financkrs, cap tains of Industry, United States sen ators and jurUiUt, wer9 fared In pov erty. It 'is, ' therefore, the duty .of parents to contribute many sons and daughters to fcocifcty.' however dispro portionate , the .i?l? of the family to the size of tluT Income. Granting that the American boy cradled In a log cabin and reared' in the cornfield has often feund the world' his oyster, and opened it, it Is difficult to overlook the fact that theVS : avfc many more con victs than .preplan ts, and that most of.: our crlminalsVome from the 111 nourlshed class. H?-'3? In the couh'try poverty does not en tail hunger or force human beings to gT half clad and vant decent shelter and It Is often the sharpest spur to tY boys' ambition. ' Btit there Is another and a darker sld to the picture. From the underfed lth" .-families In the great centers of, ppdlation come a majority or tne ;roaie criminals me plekpsckets, the Sneak thieves, the burglars, the yegmen, in each of whom Is the erriVyo murderer and a very large proportion of the unfortu nate women, in the tenements pov erty spells suffering. It means a lack of food, shelter, breathing space'. .Even air that is nfc to breathe is often denied to the tenement dweller, and enforced uncleanjiness lowers vitality and depletes moral strength. Crime suggests itself as the shortest cut from physical suffering to comfort, 'Girls and boys are driven from the straight path not because they have "criminal tendencies," hut because the lusty cry of aji empty stomach stills the voice of conscience. It isn't probable that ny amount of preaching from the White House or elsewhere ever will have any .effect one way or another upon the number of births in poor families, but who is the truer humanitarian, Presi dent Roosevelt, who cries out for un limited families In all walk of life. upon the theory that the Lord will provide, or Mrs. Crosman, who takes the opposite view? A comic weekly, which dips into pathos now and then, publishes in its .Christmas number a cartoon picturing Christmas eve In the homo ot a poor man with a Roosevelt family, consist ing of a dozen sons and daughters. There are stockings enough to fill a counter in a department store and there .is nothing with which to All the stocHJngs. To change the cartoon from pathos to tragedy It would only be ne cessary to sketch into the picture, In stead of a disconsolate father and mother, a coffin, the widowed mother of many babies. . But tragedies resulting from pover ty In large families are not depend ent f,or development upon the death ot the providing head of the family. Are the poor who bring a doien chil dren Into the world to suffer, with lit ,tle or no thought-or care for their future, mora praiseworthy than those ,who take a little thought for the mor row and try to rear two or three chil dren decently?
