90 Right or Otherwise
|HWhat strange god is this who has come among us attempting to force
mothers, wives and daughters to bargain with him for the political
|ts nation has said shall be their own?
Mb What magic power has been conferred on the man who attempts to
de the destiny of this great state, that he should seek to dictate the
on which he will perform the duties conferred upon his office
H*® our constitution?
In other words, where does Jim Goodrich get that noise about gagging
legislature or depriving our feminine voters of their rights?
Hi It is time the women of Indiana realized that if they are going to enter
9|to the spirit of politics as is in Indiana they must take cognizance of the
■let that the cross, the double-cross and all the other crosses known to
Hpte scheming politicians are as applicable to them as to the men.
Jim Goodrich has double-crossed the women of Indiana more than
>nce. Now he attempts to repeat the process, only this time he is so devoid
>f chivalry that he proposes to make the women work for him in a way
hat Is wholly unnecessary for the accomplishment of their desires.
Woman’s suffrage will he ratified in Indiana. There isn’t, in the com
lined influence of all the political interests in the state and nation, suffi
dent power to prevent this community from giving to the women the bal
ot they have so richly deserved for so many years.
The question now is whether the women of the state will accept the
franchise as their right, won after a long struggle against the self-seeking
political interests, or whether they will accept what is already theirs as a
"gift” from Jim Goodrich and his ilk at the expense of their political honor.
Goodrich's proposal that the women help him control the legislature In
eturn for ratification of suffrage is a bribe, cunningly wrapped in a rib
ton-bedecked package, and dangled before the eyes of a group of alleged
epresentatives of the feminine population of the state as an inducement
o them to mar a campaign record that has been clean, wholesome and
We have too much faith in the good sense of civic righteousness that
must prevail among the women of Indiana to believe that any considerable
proportion of them will sully their yellow banners by using them to bridge
the political mire through which Goodrich must wade to extricate himself
from the blunders of his personally prompted executive record.
We are anxiously awaiting for that moment when the clear-sighted
women of the state will hurl back to the scheming politicians of the re
state organization their nefarious proposal for mesalliance and
jjHfii oa their rights in a demand for the unconditional ratification of suf-
Re Goodrich promised them long ago and which neither he nor the
party dares long refuse them.
WMhe Worst Criminal of All
Who is the Worst criminal? The highwayman who gets the drop on
at the point of a pistol takes jour money and leaves you stunned
the ground when he flees? The burglar who invades your home and
Rakes your silverware and your jewelry? The crook who swindles you?
MBad enough, they are, but not the worst, because the things that they steal
■ are material things and you can replace them. The worst criminal is the
[ one who preys upon the weak and helpless, who slips around in the dark
[places and steals your reason; who peddles suffering and distress to inno-
Rfcent women and children; who causes passions to be inflamed. He is the
J criminal who makes criminals out of others; who causes men to shoot
other men, to steal, to lie, to commit a hundred and one crimes because he
has deprived them of cold, sober judgment, of their power of reasoning,
of their moral sense of right and wrong. This master criminal is the
L bootlegger.
) The bootlegger does not deal with strong men. He plies his illicit
trade among the weak and diseased, who are incapable of resisting him
when he lures them with his distilled poison. He wants only the dollars
of thtse he deals with and he cares not a jot that when he takes their
money he also takes their brains. He peddles his goods on the sly and it
does not concern him that death may lurk in them. His sense of decency
is at zero, his feeling of responsibility toward his fellowman does not exist.
It does not appall him that the house he lives in, the clothes he wears, the
food that keeps his family are bought with the brains of other men wliom
he has destroyed.
From time immemorial the finger of scorn has been pointed at the child
of the scarlet woman. Today it points even more scornfully at the child
of the bootlegger. The man, as he goes about his illicit trading, does not
OOnsider the misery which he is laying up for his offspring. He lacks
the vision to see the degradation into which he has slipped and the depths
into which be is plunging his familj-. His mind does not picture his inno
cent child’s broken heart when companions ignore him. or refuse to play
with him, or taunt him with their cries of “Look at (he bootlegger’s kid.”
‘le not look further into the future and see the blush of shame man
itling the cheeks of his son or daughter as they admit that their father sup
' Ported them with 'the proceeds of theft—the theft of other men’s brains.
Many men are driven into theft by dire necessity, by sudden tempta
tion, or in the heat of passion. They can. if they wish, turn over anew
leaf. In many cases they can make restitution for -what they have taken.
The bootlegger ts different, for lie has chosen his illegal business of his
own free will and he could not make restitution if he wanted to, for the
thing that lie steals away he can not give back.—W. D Boyce in the Sat
urday' Blade, Chicago.
Watson Still Present
Having announced his determination to stand for re-election as senator
and on that ground insisted on representation in the party organization, it *
is not surprising that vSenator Watson should declare that he will support
any Indiana man who receives a preferential vote for the nomination for
president. Watson is too astute a politician to lay himself open to a charge
of disloyalty to the party. He can better afford, publicly, to appear to
indorse Jim Goodrich for president than to furnish the -wedge with which
(he republican party in Indiana can be driven apart.
But it may be said without fear of successful contradiction that the
same\persons who have been so steadily at work since last spring en- j
deavortog to shape a Watson for president boom, are just as busy now as
then, r plans have not been disconcerted in the least by any
statement that Watson, has made to date, and their original hopes of stam
peding the republican convention to Watson are just as rosy as they were
nine months ago.
Watson,‘himself, will never be an avowed candidate for the nomina
tion. His friends will thrust it upon him if they can corral it, and Jim
will be right there with his broad back waiting for the tAiaLlf

I bling was at its height at this time. It
was 68id that hia personal fortune was

the campaign he staged by making
stocks "nervous,” incidentally damaged
his own investments. Senator LaFollette

Good Reading for Pacifists
March 4, IPOS.
Nearest Hermit-—You have recently been
writing me about Dickens, Senator Lodge
gave me the following first-class -quota
tion from a piece by Dickens about "Pro-'
posals for Amusing Posterity."
"And I would suggest that if a body
of gentlemen possessing their full
phrenological share of the combative and
antagonistic organs, could only be in
duced to form themselves into a society
for declaiming about peace, with a very
considerable warwhoop against- all -nou
declalmers, and If they could only be pre
vailed upon to sum up eloquently the
many unspeakable miseries afid horrors
of war, and to present them to their o;n
country as a conclusive reason for its
being undefended against war, and be
coming a prey of the first despot who
j might choose to Inflict those miseries and
horrors —why then I really believe we
! should have got to the very best Joke we
j could hope to have in our whole complete
jest-book for posterity and might fold
i our arms and rett convinced that we had
; done enough for that discerning
i Patriach’s amusement.”
This ought to be read before all the
i tomfool peace societies and anti im
i perialist societies of the present-day.
Quentin as a Ballplayer
Whltehouse, March s*. I!WK. '
Dearest Archie—Yesterday morning
j Quentin brought flown all his Force
! school baseball nine to practice oti the
i whltehouse grounds. It was great fun
ito see them, and Quentin made a run. It

Moreover, I was reminded of the occa

! In connection with the nine 'which re

boy who Quentin assured me was the
j “meanest, kid tn tow9i.” T like to see
Quentin practicing baseball. It gives me

prove able to play the national game!

Whltehouse. March 15, 1!>08.
Dearest Archle-Quentln is now taking
a great Interest in baseball. Yesterday the
Force school nine, on which he plays sec
ond base, played the P street nine on the
whltehouse grounds where Quentin has
marked out a diamond. The Force school
nine was victorious by a score of 22 to 5.
I told Quentin 1 was afraid the P street
boys must hare felt badly and he
answered, “Oh, 1 guess not; you see T
filled them up with lemonade afterward!"
Charlie Taft is on his nine.

was out riding with Fitz Lee. who was on
Roswell, and Mike was following They

Fidelity again. He seized her by the
shoulder and tried to seise her by the
throat, and twice Ethel had to break
away and gallop ofT, Fitz Lee endeavor
ing in vain to catch the dog. Finally he
succeeded, Just as Mike had got Fidelity
by the bock. He had to give Mike a tre
mendous beating to restore him to obedi

disposed of. Fidelity was bitten in sev

Ethel was able to keep her seat, because
natually the frightened little mare

Four Sheepish Small Boys

Quentin really seems to be getting on
pretty well with his baseball. In each
of the last two gnmes he made a base hit
and a run. I have just had to give him
and three qf his associates a dressing
down—one of the three being Charlie
Taft. Yesterday afternoon was rainy, and
four of them played five hours Inside the
whltehouse. They were very boisterous
"and were all the time on the verge of
mischief, and finally they made spltthalls
and deliberately put them on the por
traits. I did not discover !t until after
dinrer, and then pulled Quentin out of
bed and had him take them all off the
portraits, and this morning required him
to bring in the three other culprits be
fore me. I explained to them that they
had acted like boors; that It would have
been, a disgrace to have behaved so in
any gentleman's house; that Quentin
could have- no friend to see him. and the
other three could ned come inside the
whltehouse. until I felt that a sufficient
time had elapsed to serve as punishment.
They were four very sheepish small hoyi
when I got through with them.

All children are born actor*. They
can transform an old shawl, a silk scarf
and a walking stick into almost any kind
of a costume. There is much tn the way
you drape them and In the manner you
cfl-ry yourself—to show whether you be
a l ing or a ruffian.
To satisfy this dramatic instinct in all
children, the public library has a host of
plays for children. Some have music
with them, as “The Urowntkins and
O'her Fairies.” by Ruth Arkwright, with
music by J. W. Wilson. Some’are plays
for very little children, as “Nursery
Comedies." tweivp tiny plays for chil
dren, by Lady Bell. Children learn his
tory easily by acting its dramatic mo
ments. and for this purpose there sre
“Historical Plays for Children,” by Bird
and Startling, and “Dramatized Seeies
from American History,” by Augusta
Stevenson, tn which are such plays as
"The Settlement at Jamestown,” “The
Puritans at Sorooby," “The Pilgrims and
Their Journeys,” “The Boston Tea
Party." “The First Continental Con
gress," “A Brnve Deed by Rrave Men”
or “The Declaration of Independence,"
anil “(Jen. George Washington." There
are also ‘'Colonial Plays for the School
Room." designed for rlHt*srnom work In
the sixth and seventh grades, by Blanche
Shoemaker. The plays In this book are: '
“The Columbus Story.” "Colonial Vir
ginia." “The First Thanksgiving,” “A
Witchcraft Story.” “LlSe In New York.”
"The Georgia Debtors.” "An Indian
Ktocy.” “Revolutionary Days,” "Three

other collection of plays of this sort is

Assistant Chief of Staff, in Charm of
Employment for Discharged Service
New year, 1920, finds the war depart
ment still engaged in the enormous trork
of finding Jobs for all the men who one
year ago, were members of Amelca’s
victorious army and navy.
At the very beginning, the department
announced its intention not to relai its
efforts until every discharged soldier,
sailor and marine had secured a satis
factory Job. We still stand by tha!
On July 1, 1919, the appropriation o

them to leave the field. A double duf

employment bureaus for returning fl

work being done by these bureaus, In
ninety-seven cities alone, for a perio of
four weeks in October, 41,548 fojner
service men were put in Jobs out oft”,-
54ft registering.
In addition to this there is maintjned
a special section at our Washigton
headquarters which deals exclulvely
with officers and men who are teclfical
ly trained. This section up to Nf. 11.
1919, placed 11,321 such men out f 1".
577 applying.
But what about the vast majorij’ who
came back before this time? Sftlstlcs
show that only about 25 per cent f those
demobilized asked for assistance, but
this in itself represents a tremendous
task when it is realized that ft round
numbers this means 1,000,0 ft) nfn. The
other 75 per cent secured their old Jobs
which patriotic employed throughout
the nation held open for tlein ill during
the war. The war department, recog
nizing the service renderfl by these em
ployers, issued to each such employer
who applied an official citation in the
form of a certificate. Trdate over 04,000
of these citations have been issued.
A great work has ben a< complished,
but the Job Is not yfl finished. Some
of the most difficult ‘ases remain tin
placed, and we owe 1 to tie men and
our past record not to quit until we
reach the 100 per cert mark.
When I look back and recollect the

hazard wny in which many of us look
after the human machine. With a serene
disregard of Mae first principles govern
ing the use of fuel, we frequently expecx
the body to derive Its heat and energy
from a cumbersome and badly assorted
mixture of foods.
The heat-producing fats and oils, su
gars and well-cooked starches in their
simplest forms, constitute an Ideal fuel
with readily available heat.
In all of these there ts'more thorough
oxidation, less effort on the part of the
digestive organs, less overtaxing of di

later that common American complaint,
Q. Several people have told me that
chewing gum will affect the eyes. Do
you think it does? If so, in what way?
A. The chewing of gum probably will
have little or no effect on the eyes.
Q. I am troubled with a sour stom

A. A person suffering from sour stom

medicines, such as ant-acids. Among the
ant-acids in common use, bicarbonate of
soda, calcined magnesia, or magnesium
carbonate are effectual. A regulation or
