THE NEED OF MORAL TEACHING IN THE SCHOOL
The Forum of Indianapolis is much worried over the problem of teaching
the Bible in the puhlic schools. It points out that if it is taught it must be
along the lines of expounding it as a historical or literary document, which it
also it. And the Forum wants to know how Jews, Catholics, Prctestants and
those who may have no religion at all will taice to Bible teaching.
Like many other newspapers the Forum realises that there is a definite
need of moral teaching in the public EChools of America and there is. The
Lutherans and Catholics have endeavored to supply this moral instruction by
having parochial schools, but to the great mass of pupils there are no advant
age like this.
To institute Bible teaching on a non-sectarian basis probably would open
a etorm of protest, create suspicions.
Now, Mr. Indianapolis Editor, about the best way of meeting this issue is
the plan they have worked out at Gary. Parents whose children want moral
or Bibl,8 study are getting it, and the plan has the endorsement of Jewish,
Catholic and Protestant clergymen. In New York the Episcopalian diocesan
authorities, the American Federation of Catholic societies and associations of
Jewish rabbis have endorsed the Gary religious plan.
The plan is one whereby parishes maintain at their own edifices or at
other places designated a teacher who will impart moral and religious instruc
tion. It is an after-school affair, open to those whose parents designate that
they should go, and the child of a particular faith goes to the religious school
of that particular faith, conducted either by the pastor or a lay or clerical as
sistant. At Gary the plan works out. very well.

Nothing like an anecdote to drive home an argument.
Major Gen. Wood, speaking on the need of preparedness ai the Lotos Club
told the story of his meeting an English friend and inquiring after the young
son of the family. The boy was dead, somewhere in France.
"It isn't his death that I deplore," said the father, "but the fact that I sent
him into battle unprepared."
In Germany a traveller closely encountered the fathers of many young
men who were dead everywhere in Europe.
"It Isn't their death we deplore," said the fathers, "but the fact that the
end for which they died should be as far off as ever. Imagine, after forty
years of preparation, after years of drill and discipline, with the best officers
in the world, the heaviest guns, the most abundant supply of ammunition
they went into the battle prepared, but they did not win; indeed, they probab
ly died in vain."
Of the two anecdotes, it seems to us the second is fully as thought-provoking
as the flrsL
THE LOAN AND BASEBALL
It Is a compliment to the newspapers of the United States that the gov
ernment is using billboard advertising in preference to newspaper space to
boost the new liberty loan. Uncle Sam can depend on anybody and any in
stitution that has a soul, but he can not depend on a billboard; for it is about
the most soleless and worthless thing in creation. Hundreds of people wi'.l
pass a billboard every day and not notice what is on it, but nobody will buy a
newspaper and fail to read its contents.
Uncle Sam had put up to him the project of spending a very small part cf
cne per cent in newspaper advertising, and Uncle !3am, through Secretary Mc
Adoo, refused to take up the project. In all justice it should have been done
that w-ay, and It could have been done without confusion, and with better re
sults than can be achieved under the present methods. Yet, as has been said,
it is a compliment to the publishers of newspapers to realize that they would
support the loan spend their own personal money on composition, on space,
on press work and the like, for a class of news that is not news, for a kind of
material that overtaxes newspapers that are already overtaxed.
There is no newspaper, so far as we know, that has refused to do its full
part and more for It must be understood that ninety per cent of the ma
terial thit goes for free boosting of the loan is not news at all, but is mere
And yet. newspapers have no room to complain, and they have a duty to
nerform. Their sacrifice is small as eomoared to the sacrifices of mpn at th
front. And, newspapers have themselves made themselves the goat for near-1
ly worthless things, and. consequently, should make no complaint when ask
ed to give their support to projects that are worthy.
Newspapers have made baseball. For years they have contributed pages
and spent money from their own treasuries to obtain facts about baseball, and
other men have commercialized the sport and used it to make themselves
wealthy. AH the newspapers got out of v: was talk about it and talk and
talk and talk about it. So long as newspE.pers permit baseball magnates to
wai wealthy at their own fcolieh expense, they certainly need not he guilty of

THE MAYOR OP GARY IS FOR THE PEOPLE.
When the steel company aldermen at Gary come to consider street re
pair or other appropriations, notably those involving the pay of $2.40 a day
street laborers, they seem to become stringently economical. With many
other appropriations they hardly allow increases as the years roll on and
the .city grows bigger.
But with the Gary Heat, Light and Water company of the steel trust
ah, that is another story! It seems to be the favored corporation of cer
tain aldermen. They are generous with the taxpayers' gold when this
poverty-stricken offspring of Wall street starts wallowing at the treasury
trough. This is the same concern that the mayor of Gary says charges 30
ner cent more for gas than they do in Chicago, a lot more for electricityW
(said to be made the cheapest in the world at the Gary steel plant), and
four times as much for water as they do in Chicago, although it all comes
from the same source, Lake Michigan.
The funds that thia company receives Is for sidewalk lights, the rental
of arc lights (the annual charge being $75 a year in Gary as compared with
only $32.50 in Hammond) and for fire plug, rentals (some of which are never
tapped to yield a drop of water in a years time).
How well this company gets its tentacles into the city treasury is
shown by the following appropriations for light and water:
1913 - 149,400.00
1915 .. 43 905.00
1918 - 61,517.05
Is it any wonder that Mayor Johnson, who has set out to have the public
service commission of Indiana reduce light and water rates not only for the
city but for the residents of Gary, is having so many of the people backing
him in his race on the independent ticket for re-election?
This Gary utilities company is also the same concern which furnishes
free lawn sprinkling water, at the instance and the pay of the Gary Land
company, also a part of the steel trust, to those who live on land now owned
or sold by the steel company. Gary people who do not buy land from the
steel trust or who do not live on land that it has sold ret no free sprinkling
water, which is a great item in a sandy city like Gary.
Is it any wonder that the people of the south side, Tolleston and Ridge
road, very few of whom can afford to pay Wall street its high price for water,
as wel las those on the north side, who sympathize with them because of
their inability to have lawns, flowers and trees, are backing Mayor John
son, who is fighting the people's cause against corporation greed? Mayor
Johnson's re-election may not mean such fancy rates for Wall street, but
it will mean a whole lot to women and children, especially the babies.
ALTHOUGH the potato crop is a big one this year and it was a small one
last year the price of potatoes now is as high as it was this time last year.
Have the potato magnates also set prices above patriotism.
NOTE by the TIMES that during Mayor Johnson's term as Mayor Gary's
population has increased from 30,000 to 60,000. Rulers who want to repair
their populations after the war might write to the Gary city hall.

Loan be a failure. Help make the Kaiser downcast.
