SPEAKING of Americanization, just a word for the immigrant, and inci dentally, one of criticism for ourselves. There is an old proverb about "sweeping your own door yard first," that applies splendidly, or. if you are religiously inclined, take that Biblical one about the beam in your own eye and the mote in your neighbor's. It is well, in connection with the just denunciation of the immigrants who are found to have come here in bad faith, to consider the duty of instruction and protection that rests upon us as Americans. The aliens as a rule furnish good material for citizenship, but inlrje first place, it must be recognized that those who have been steeped in the expe rience and traditions of bad government get into the habit of doubting any government. The oppressed for a time mistrust all governments on account of the bad that they have known, and even when they find a haven under some benev olent government some complain against it from force of habit. Of course, these types may be in the minority, but it is they who cause considerable trouble. Suppose, however, that some one of the oppressed comes here in the right spirit, looking upon this country as the land of opportunity that it is and ready to show his appreciation for it. II. T ERY, very frequently such have been left at the mercy of the unscrup- ulous, being swindled soon after their arrival and not finding justice in the petty courts in which they seek it, both from lack of funds to engage a lawyer and lack of understanding of their language. There it is! They may reflect. The same old treacherous government. And consequently they may turn to anarchy. The Americanizers, then, must get hold of the immigrants at once, and warn them not to view our government in the light of what they have left, and then see to it that they are protected from exploitation. With but a little instruction of this nature they could be started right. Bear in mind that pass ing from one form of government to another, especially from a backward monarchy to a progressive republic, is a critical step. The Immigrants must be trained right from the start; that it isn't all a question of martialing their votes, but of martialing their citizenship, on some intelligent basis. III.- QUITE unquestionably the average immigrant comes to America filled with hope, but too often a better American the day he arrived at Castle gar den, than he is 48 hours later. Incident to our Americanization of the foreigner we must turn some of our attention to humanizing Americans; to making of them a fit reception committee for the foreigner. Humanitarianism is an American trait but the average newcomer soon comes to find in the American brand an unfavorable resemblance to the hog. We must practice what we preach o the immigrant; practice it politically, socially, economically. If we expect a "square deal" we must give a "square deal" in return.' We are not doing as much of that ,as we might, even though, perhaps, not as much of the other as the immigrant, not understand ing, is led to believe. Imagine yourself, if you can, in some foreign country, even as a traveler, untutored in its tongue, perhaps slight of purse, with every advantage being taken of you at every turn, until you are fleeced, to use a Rooseveltian term, to a "frazzle I" Conjure up within your brain, if you can, the sort of opinion you would soon have of that country, and of its peoplel Ask most any soldier back from France how he enjoyed France on that account and then imagine yourself an immigrant, coming to America, ex pecting to make it your future home, only finding that you had fallen among even a worse set of thieves! You have a condition right there that accounts for the anarchy in our midst; at least prepares the mind, rendering it susceptible to the agitator. It is that more than wages, more than industrial conditions, more than anything else, that prepares the wiy. Inspire the immigrant with confidence in our people and they will soon attain confidence in our government the best, the most effective program for Americanization, that can possibly be invented.

The clopeness of the vote in Ohio reminds us of the year Wilson and a man by the name of Hughes were running for president, when John Zuver thought it was a tie. It sounds natural to read: "Col. Roosevelt, interviewed at Oyster Bay said: 'Bully.' " Why can't the kid be a little more original. He could at least substitute the old (Jreek expression. "damfine." for "bully" occasionally and probably still set on the first page. 4 PA PERKINS SKZ. It's g-ettins fashionable to starve- First it was the Armen ians and now it's the Bees. y & "TURKEY PRICES TAKE BIG DROP," says a headline in The News-Times. We didn't read the story but the printers certainly make some amusing1 mistakes these days. be tho universal may be, it seems destined t servant. This fact miht well b recognized more general ly than it is, and acted on practically. Why should not every boy and girl be taught the scientific prin ciples of the Internal combustion engine, and its mechanism and mode of operation? Since every body may reasonably expect to use one or more some day, why should not everybody learn about them, just as everybody once learned to drive a horse or handlo a gun? "GLORIFIED" PATCHES. Municipal employes in Chicago v. ho have organ ized the "Old Clothes society" may be putting into practice a conception of economic worth. More like ly they are not. The news dispatch telling of the organization to "glorify the wearing of patches, frayed or shiny iuits. soft collars, tesoled shoes and reviried. neck ties as a means of combatting the high cost of Irv ing." carries a disquieting intimation. We read be tween the lines a declaration of boycott which, widely practiced, would have a disastrous effect on American industry. Thrift, it appears, is to be employed as a weapon; it should be r-racticed as a virtue if it is to be gen erally or individually beneficial. We are to see de fiance of conventions, premeditated and enforce.l through the power of union. That is the weakness of the rising cult of shabbiness that will defeat whatever is laudable in the object of the "Old Clothes society. Economically this pcheme will defeat itself through increasing idleness and slowing up the pro duction of wealth on which every member of so tiety depends for prosperity. In essence this Chi cago plan contemplates a species of sabotage, whereas what is essential is genuine economy, elim ination of extravagance and waste, but the con tinued supply of all needs True thrift Is not iiserliness. Saving is com menuable only when it is wisely accomplished. More Truth Than Poetry By James J. Montague HULLIE PROBARLY I LVD HIT) UNDKR A P(K)L TABLE. (From The News-Times.)
