Tiie Soldier's Moratorium.
When congress passed and Presi
dent Wilson approved the bill which
provides that the American soldier
and his dependents shall be immune
from civil legal processes during the
time the soldier is in the service of
his country, a meritorious law was
written into the nation's statute
books. The Cedar Rapids Gazette
has epitomized the provisions of this
meritorious act into what it styles
•'Uncle Sam's Ten Commandments,"
Thou shalt not evict, for nonpay
ment of rent, a soldier's dependents,
under penalty of $10,000 fine.
Thou shalt not cut off a soldier's
life insurance because of delayed
Thou shalt not foreclose a mort
gage on a soldier's property.
Thou shalt not. take away a sol
dier's home on which he has made
Thou shalt not sell -a soldiers
property because of his failufe to
pay the taxes, national, state or
Thou shalt not settle a law suit
against a soldier during his absence.
If a soldier sue, the court shall
postpone action until he can attend
If a soldier have a mine or tim
ber or farm claim, assessments on
which are overdue, it shall be held
Honor thy soldier and thy sailor
that thy days may be long in the
land of liberty.
No man hath greater love than lie
that offereth his life for the world
sake, and it is commanded that
neither lawyers nor the loan sharks
nor the gatherers of tithes shall fat
ten on him.
There we have a "nutshell an
notation of the law, in form handy
for ready reference. The measure
will'bring ease to the mind of manv
a soldier, inspire him with new
hopes, heighten his confidence in his
country, quicken his patriotism and
make him more eager to fight for
