In the last few months the Bureau of Naturali
zation, U. S. Department of Labor,, has distrib
uted to public schools upward of 114000 copies
of its textbook on citizenship, authorized by
act of Congress, May 9, 1918. Besides this, thou
sands of candidates for citizenship have been
awarded certificates of graduation by the Bu
reau of Naturalization, showing that the course
has been completed, and that the graduates are
prepared to undertake the duties of citizenship
with the full undertsanding of those duties..
In Boston there have been successfully com
pleted a series of examinations. There a school
of citizenship has been started from which al
ready 150 aliens have been graduated. These
graduates have themselves instructed large
classes of foreigners, one teacher having within
three months taught 450 aliens and assisted them
to get their naturalization papers.
And this is all very well, as far as it goes. But
it does not go far enough. The schools should
be extended, beyond the confines of the public
schools and the aliens in this country, and classes
in citizenship might well be conducted with much
profit to those born and bred in this country.
It might even be that these schools of Ameri
canization might with profit to this country be
conducted within our legislative, halls and within
our senate chambers.
If ever there was a time in the United States
of America when we needed to acquaint ourselves j
with the great fundamental principles of liberty, j
that hour has struck. And while we are teaching
the men and women from foreign lands the prin
ciples of democratic government, it might be well
for those of us who were born heirs to these prin
ciples, to take counsel with ourselves, and decide
whether of not we are worthy of our steward
ship. In every crisis in which the United States has
been involved a great leader has arisen to steer
this Ship of State into a harbor of safety. That
is a hackneyed metaphor, but truth is always
more or less hackneyed. .
Washington was maligned, but that he was a
great man, and that he was largely responsible
for founding this republic, no one will deny.
Lincoln was maligned in his day, was laughed
at, and held up in desirion, particularly by mem
bers of his own cabinet. But north and south, in
spite of the awful carnage of the civil war and
the terrible days of reconstruction, Lincoln
stands as one of the wisest leaders of men. -
Wilson is today the most maligned man on the
face of the earth BY TRAITORS IN HIS OWN
COUNTRY. Those of his own household seek to
discredit him. '
No one who has made a study of the man will
deny his human qualities. No one will claim that
his administration has been perfect. No one
will say that he has not made mistakes. So did
Washington, and Jefferson, and Lincoln.
But no one can deny that Wilson is the great
est man that this era has produced. He has made
mistakes. He will continue to make mistakes.
But spending time in criticism of the mistakes
of Wilson, will not in any way change the vic
torious outcome of this war, unless it CHANGES
Here are a few of the things that the United
States has to be thankful for, and which it owes
to Wilson and his administration :
WE WON THE WAR. It may have cost us a
lot of money to winit, and a lot of money may
have been wasted in the winning, but we won
with less bloodshed than any other nation in
volved in the war. AND THERE IS NOT A
All the Bolsheviki are not in ambush. Some
of them are in congress. Who they are and wnar. j
their motives will sooner or later be discerned, j
But if ever there was a time when the men
and women of America needed to study the prin
ciples of Liberty, if ever they needed to stand
fast TOGETHER for these principles, that hour
is now. : -L;.v "
Today money is the cheapest thing in the
United States the easiest thing to get. Loyalty
is the most precious. In the hour of our coun-,
try's peril we stood together. Now let us not dis
integrate and allow the enemy to enter and take
from us that for which our sons and their fore
fathers have died.
Great legal minds have claimed that the reason
for the stability of the constitution of the United
States is ITS ELASTICITY. It is not a mass of
detail but it is the expression of a great underly
ing principle, and for that reason it has been able
to cover every issue that this country has faced.
Let us remember that, and let us not read into
that constitution a mass of detail that has no
place there. Let us look to our leaders, and par
ticularly the president of the United States ttf
tution, and if the great fundamental principles
are regarded, we may safely trust that in the end
the details may be worked out along perfectly
legitimate lines, even if these details do not suit
every person concerned.

I have been a voter ever since I
was 21 years old, which dates back
some years. Burin g that time I have
Been so much detestable doing; among:
the politicians, both 'democrats and
republicans, that when woman suf

get between woman and politics as
I would between her and a contag

But, since they have been called
to all sorts of responsible places and
have made good, and as they want th
ballot, I say let them have it. They
certainly have a right to it. They
have the intelligence; they have the
property rigts. I have known for
eigners to vote when they had no
property and when their ballots had
to be marked for them. I" hope our
representatives will put it up to the

The drive for the Salvation Army Home Fund
is lagging, not for any lack of inteerst, not be
cause of any serious handicaps, either as to com
mittees or finances in Pensacola or West Florida,
but rather, it would seem, from a sort of misun
derstanding which has arisen in the minds of
contributors, who are holding back their contri
butions, because no one has called upon them for
This has been so, more or less, in every drive,
and has always been a detriment to success.
There is no more reason why you should wait to
be called upon to give your contribution to the
Salvation Army than the committee should wait
for you to bring it in. One is quite as unreason
able as the other. But the point is simply this
The committee has its hands full. They are do
ing the very best they can. And they do not ex
pect you to take your contribution to them, if it
is particularly inconvenient for you to do so. They
are perfectly willing to send some one for it, and
will do so, if humanly possible. j
But why not save them the trouble? If you
are going to make your contribution anyhow,
why not write our your check, here and now, an 1
send it over by the stenographer or the office
boy, and get it off your mind, and help a good
cause at the same time?
Or why not take that dollar or that half dollar,
that may seem very little to you, but possibly all
you can afford, and take it over to headquarters
and give it with your good wishes for the success
of this drive? A word of good will is cumulative.
Because you are not able to give liberally is no
reason why you should not give at all. Give with
a smile. And if you cannot give much, maybe
you can help by going out today to collect from
those who have not time to take in their contri
But the main thing is to GIVE NOW if you are
going to give at all. It is safe to say that if every
man or woman who intends to give something to
this fund had already made their contirbution,
the fund would have been oversubscribed long
Give today, anj3 give as liberally as possible, for

Here we are, three buck privates,

were sent from Camp Travis, Texas,

are Under strict quarantine and have
no reading matter and are out of to

A. E. F. and our knowledge of what
the Salvation Army, has done for the
A. E." F. in particular, . we feel certain
that you will help us out. We have
only seven days more of quarantine
and if you could manage, to send us
some tobacco we will certainly ap
preciate it. .
Yours in need,

The accident of Sunday afternoon at Bayview
park is to be deplored, and, whether or not there
was any -fauit' connected with it, should be an
warning to those in charge of the recreation
Bayview in the past has been peculiarly free
from accidents, and for that reason has been ex
tremely popular with residents and visitors, who
have found much of healthful sport in the waters
of Bayou Texar.
But it is not possible to be too careful in safe
guarding the pleasure-seekers who go to Bayview
for their diversions. When the park was in
charge of the Pensacola Playground committee,
every effort was made to see that life was pro
tected, through the, placing at the head of every
department those who were fitted to cope with
its problems. .
The Journal does not wish to impute any blame
for the accident of Sunday, but does contend that
every precaution should be taken, and would sugj;
gest that a life-saving crew be maintained at the
park, in order that assistance be rendered those
in distress, either while boating or bathing.
This is the case in other cities, has been the
case under other management in Pensacola, and
if it is not the case now at Bayview, certainly
some steps should be taken to render the sports
on the bayou less hazardous.
