This is the answer of one of the world's greatest authorities on man breeding to the fear that the loss of ! many brave youths on the battlefields ; of Europe will result in a physical i and mental deterioration of the American racc. Dr. Ales Hrdlicka, curator of the! division of physical anthropology of ; the U. S. National Museum, believes ! the war will have so many compensa tions in the way of race betterment that the losses, the shattered con stitutions, exposure, wounds, strains' and diseases contracted by the soldiers will not leave any disastrous mark ! on the next generation. Four great vital laws working to ; protect the race from the conse quences of war are elimination, adap tation, restitution and compensation. "These laws have taken car© of war-ridden mankind in the past and can safely be expected, with intelli gent assistance, to accomplish even more in the future," Dr. Hrdlicki fcays. The elimination of the unfit and their progeny will, of course, be in tensified by the war, to the benefit of the race. This law is always work ing, and remorselessly, despite the hindrances of civilization. The large majority of the injured will be curable. Blinded or maimed men do not transmit thier defects to their progeny. This cîass of men will not diminish the standards of the next generation. Those actually killed will not be a ι total loss in many cases. Soldiers slain on the battlefields will leave many representatives in tne next genera I tion. The attraction of women to j the soldier, and "war weddings," I show nature's providence in this di rection. "The fighting races don't die out" is a poetical statement of a sci entific law. So much for the adaptations and tho restitutions; the compensations are so many that the war may prove a blessing in disguise if full advan tage is taken of them. "The war has given the greatest impetus to the struggle against Alco holism, man's greatest enemy. Could we determine the full biological /alue of this accomplishment alone, It would possibly be found to equal the total war loss In human material," eaya Dr. Hrdlicka. The war has given us our first snr vey of the physical condition of our youn ginen in the examination of r»· crults and selected men. It has iei to the correction of hundred» of thous and» of physical defect*. It has brought about the Immuni zation from typhoid of hundreds vt thousands of young men who would otherwise have been carried off by the disease. "It has led to the physical train ing and building up of hundred* thousands of young men who, as a re sult, when peace comes, will mate better husbands and fathers. It will lead to the training of untold thous ands in the future, for this nation will never again permit itself to bo unprepared for self-defense. "There are other compensations 1han the physical There is the intel lectual stimulus, the social and na tional regeneration, the raising of the nation from a" isolated and somewhat selfish condition to a world power Ui the best sense of the term and for the best interests of humanity. There are little people who will see, will want to see, nothing but losses and suffering; there are well mean ing patriotic men who fear the effects of the losses on the American people; but it Is possible to view conditions from a higher horizon. It may not even be true that oar best will be killed off. Bullets make no selection, but st® brave men. as the most brainy, has a better chance to survive than the dullard or coward. "Neither is it full truth that the poorest men phynically are left at home; and there is no proof that un der the present regulations for admis sion into the army any nationality or class of men In this country Is favored at the expense of the older stocks of Americans." WILLIAM H. MULLENER NOW SERGEANT IN U. S. CAVALRY A letter has been received from William H. Mullener, formerly of this city, now a sergeant in Troop G, Six teenth U. S. Cavalry, stationed at Brownsville, Texas. Owing to the long time it takes letters to arrive William H. Mullener. from men In the army Mullener has written the letter so that It will apply to all of his friends. Sergeant Mulle ner is now serving his fourth year as one of Uncle Sam's boys, having en listed three years ago in the cavalry. He was sent to the Philippines where he served three years. He then re turned to this city, his term of en listment having expired. When war was declared between Ithe United States and Germany he , answered the call for men and reen listed.

Mullener writes that he has met a number of Perth Amboy fellows while at Brownsville, Texas, and it al ways seems like old times and home to see a familiar face or meet a brother soldier from "good old Perth."
