THE ORACLE. ? | Editorial Comment I ATI P llTfttnf j |j vu vu?i viii MUUjguioj THE BENIGHTED GERMANS. j From the New Republic, j At a time when the United States ; Senate refused to budge one vote on ! the subject of woman suffrage, we 1 made the ironic suggestion in these columns that America, consecrated to the causae of democracy, compel the be nlghted Germans to give votes to women. The irony of this kind of righteousness failed to strike many of our commentators. Papers like the Outlook took the tone of righteousness completely for granted. They taerely deprecated our zeal. And now the. benighted Germans have gone and done it. A few weeks after the free American people extinguished the : sole female representative in Congress, the Germans gave a place in their parliament to over thirty women. At one stroke, that is to say, they not only improved the political status of the common people of Germany, they took away the standing insult to womanhood that still distinguishes France, Italy and the United States. : Of course the, Germans are still benighted. It is pro-German to say anything else. But the fact remains that our enlightened Senate is refusing to correct the inferior political status o( American women while German women not only vote but sit in par- i? liamenf.

Yon are growing your character now and the setjret of all character j building lies in the influences which j are brought to bear on your lives, j What you are to be, you are making yourself now.

Jim now you are choosing your assrolates and your ideais and standards ind whatever you do from now on, you need God In your life to help to choose right. Youth is a habit forming period. Just now you are Iearjng control or are driflng aimlessly with the crowd. God controls the world anjl if we Would control ourselves, we must hitch to the power of the Infinite. Habit 'f not resisted soon becomes a necessity, nev. Wells told a story at this point to illustrate the strength o( combined goodness. There were seven Bona?always quarreling. Their father brought them a bundle of sticks and ttfld them to break them all together. None of the sons was ablo to dc it. The father then took each stick out and these could easily be broken by themselves. Ir. this way he showed them how combined love and wortiness made up an unbreakable whole. You are building up habits stick by stick and if thesg habits arc bad ones, tho large bundle can't be broken In later years. lust now you can take those habits apart and break the unworthy ones. Youth Is a love-making period. Take God in on this most Important time. i 1 No Other Method Brings Results So Quickly as a. "Want Ad" in THE WEST VIRGINIAN The proof?

Youth is the time when all young people should fall In lovo with God. Rev. Wells touched unon the subject of a double moral standard and endeavored to teach the boys present that, they would be Just as accountable for their sins as the girls. He said thore was no more excuse for a boy to be low than for a girl to be so, and that it was absolutely necessary to have God in the life to be able to distinguish between bad and good.
