The Daily Editorial For Wdmen By BETH JEFFRIES. Children and the Sense of Humor. Humor is a saving grace, but just to what an extent few mothers seem to realize. The worst cases of disobedience and stubbornness can be cured by the moth er who has a sense of humor. Like all human creatures, the child is full of pride, is very sensitive and can not be made to do that which he feels is beneath him. If there is any ncriFe of personal Importance whatsoever, it lives in the heart of the little chili His main trouble arose from the fact that he wishes to do things which others, a trifile older than he, have sanctioned through their own actions. He is quick to cast aside that which the elder ridicules. That which the elder stamps as wrong, or as a sin, mny not necessarily be relegated to the "won't touch" class, for with unlimited confidence the child argues that what is good for "ma or pa" Is good for him, and ma may do the very things which are forbidden him. Few mothers appeal to this sense of nnitatie choice, as they should, and they loose thereby, for it is one of the most efficient "switches" that was ever invented. For instance in the matter of read ing. Johnnie is caught with a scrcaTlmr p'elodrama, a typical Diamond Dick. It is bad for him to have it, his elastic brain is greatly influenced perhaps, and since the reasons why it must be bon ished cannot be grasped by the child, it is a forbidden luxury. Therefore, red literature a sweet to he eaten in secret. Those books could not be so bad, for were the stories not written and print ed, and sold bv grown people? Pome explanation which can reach the child must be made.

Stephen Tuesday's election will be the most 'mportant to the cause of woman suf frage ever held, according to both antis and suffragists. Keturns from sixteen States will be watched with the keenest interest on Tuesday night. In nine of them, already permitting women to vote, it will bo de termined just how solidly the women voters can be held in line for "the cause." In those States, the word has gone forth to cut all Democratic nomi nees for the Senate and House, because the Democratic party, while in power, has failed to put through an amend ment to the Constitution permitting women to vote. These States are Colorado, where foux Democratic members of the House and snn llAmnnrntln Cflnltnr flfA .QPPkinf? Te- election; California, where three Demo cratic Congressmen, ana ivansas wueie live Democratic Congressmen are fight ing to come back; Arizona, where ono Democratic Senator and one Congress man, and Oregon, where one Demo cratic Senator is racing for re-election. Seven Have Amendments. In other States the delegations are solidly Republican already, but the suffragists are fighting to defeat the Democrats anyhow. In seven of the States constitut'onai amendments permitting women to vote are up. These 3 re Missouri. North Da kota, Ohio, Nebraska, Nevada, South Dakota and Montana. Two separate organizations are In chtrgc of the two kinds of campaigns, one handling the fight against the elec tion of Democratic Congressmen and the other -fighting for the conquest of the .seven additional States. "The individual stand taken by any Senatpr or member of the House or .tny candidate for that office, does not af fect out attitude in this fight," said Miss Alice Paul, chairman of the execu tive committee or tne uongressionai Union for Woman Suffrage, in charge of that division of the fight today "We arc going to make it plain that it is political for any partw to Ignore our demands or oppose the cause: We f'lnk we will make such a conclusive showing in the nlno suffrage States "on Tuesday that no party after that will dare oppose us.

Miss Paul said the best chances of winning were in Ohio and Nebraska, with Nevada, South Dakota, and Mon tana following In the order named. The poorest chances of winning was in Mis souri and North Dakota, sne said. Sec retary of State Bryon and Speaker Clark would help enormously in Ne braska and Missouri, respectively. Miss Paul deflared. At anti suffrage headquarters, Mrs. J. A. Mahon declared the chances of the suffragists were nil In Ohio. "Wo beat them by 80.000 two years ago," she said, "and while there are complications we will still beat them badly. In Nebraska we don't see that Bryan's statement will help them any. He has never seemed to us to be very strong in his own State. Word comes in from Butte that wo have splendid chances of defeating them In Montana, and, indeed, we are nopeful of defeating them in all seven States where amend ments to the constitutions are to be voted upon." G. W. U. Students Aid Belgian Relief Fund Organized efforts are being made by the students and faculty of George Washington University to swell the re lief funds which the Belgian minister is raising for the distressed In his own country.

RED CROSS OUTLINES SELF-DENIAL PLAN MOVING PICTURES MOVING PICTURES tmwr piimj'J'.j Suggests Christmas Offerings Be Diverted to Relief of Sick and Wounded Abroad. The American Red Cross is planning a self-denial plan of Chiistmas-glvlng by which It is hoped that much of the money usually spent for Christmas ex travagances will be diverted to the re lief of the sick and wounded soldieis and sailors and the homeless and des titute thousands of non-combatants abroad. Jacob H. Schlff, of New York; Con gressman Burton L. French of Idaho, and others have suggested such a plan. Red Cross headquarters states that Mr. SchlfTs suggestion outlines the plan. His suggestion is this: "Ask through the public press that instead of sending Christmas or New Year presents, people this year send the amount they would otherwise spend as a contribution to the Red Cross, accompanying their contribution with a list of the names and addresses of those to whom the gifts would have been sent. The Red Cross will send an appropriately worded card to each one of these, giving the name of the donor and stating that the amount has been given to the Red Cross, instead of be ing spent in a gift." In support of substantially the same idea Congressman French says: "There is no man or woman, no boy or girl, in our country, who would not gladly forego part or all of his ordi nary Christmas gifts for the relief t the stricken soldiers and the men, women, and children to whom hunger, cold, and disease are already grim spectres. Surely a Christmas to us cannot be the joyful period It Is at most times, with our fellow-human beings, people of our own blood, strug gling in the abys3 of despair." Self-denial Red Cross mite boxes, which will be one means of facilitating winter season contributions for the re lief of the war sufferers, will be ready for distribution throughout the country next week.

We have installed the most wonderful Orchestral Organ device ever devised, The Bartola Orchestra Following our custom of ever keeping in the lead we had installed at our theater one of the latest types of orchestral organs at a cost of five' thousands dollars. This instrument, which has generally been approved by the press and the public all over the United States, as the greatest ever played by human touch and is similar to that in the Vitagraph Theater, the Hippodrome and the Strand Theater, New York City. It is the only one of its kind south of New York.
