"My son," I heard the father say, "the hoys arc playing ball today,
so, prithee, een-e your round of toil, your delving in the fertile soil,
desert the onion and the bean, and join the lads upon the green. For
growing boys should romp and play, and not plant squashes all the day."
"Oh. father dear," the boy replied. "I take more pleasure and more pride
in raising pumpkins which will wear blue ribbons at the county fair,
than I would take in playing ball, which is but trifling, after all. What
shall it proflt any youth to make a three-base hit, forsooth? Let idlers
all such games pursue, and entertain an idle crew, while 1 am raising
things to eat, the prune, the nutmeg and the beet, the little early riser
pea, the weiner and the banyan tree." The father burbled for a spell,
and then he tottered to the well, with feeble, slow and halting tread, and
there awhile he soaked his head.

A year ago the average American was inclined to look
ipon the expedients to which Great Britain was forced in
irder to obtain troops with something like scorn. Yet
ioday America is beating the hushes in vain for the 25,000
idditional troops recently provided for by congress. In
tome dities there has been no dearth of applicants, but the
government is particular and accepts only those best,
luited to its purpose. However, several weeks have
lassed since the recruiting campaign was launched, and
till the men do not respond as was expected.' On April
9, New York stood in amazement while recruiting officers
jxhorted street corner crowds to enlist in the army.
Of course, New York has its own peculiar problems.
Like other great industrial and commercial centers, there

worthy the name would sign such an oath, but at the same

Laving its effect.
j It cannot be denied that the chase into Mexico after
Lilia and the possibility of intervention failed to stimulate
recruiting to the degree anticipated. What effect the
note to Germany will have remains to be seen. But the
present situation should not be taken to mean that a call
k>r volunteers with the prospect of seeing active service
would lie received in the same spirit. A state of war is a
rery different thing from a threatened state of war.
there was no lack of volunteers when Lincoln issued his
ball, or when McKinley asked for men to go to Cuba, and

Women throughout the country are interesting them
elves to greater extent than ever before in the censorship
if moving pictures. In many instances, however, the iin
•ulse back of the movement has its source in the picture
xhibitors rather than in the women themselves. In both
ases, the motive is obvious. In the first, the women are
lersuaded, through observation and experience, that the
iicture8 are not all as they should be. In the second, the
ixhibitors are merely making shrewd use of the women
or the purpose of exploiting their wares and, at the same
ime, forestalling the more genuine and the more inde
»endent scrutiny of the screen productions.
A censorship inspired and directed by the exhibitors
vill hardly be productive of satisfactory results. What
>ver of benefit, therefore, is accomplished by the women
vill come about through the efforts of those who take the
natter in hand because they are convinced there is a de
mand for it. Btill, whether there is as great a need for
iheir censorship as some of them seem to think there is,
Remains in doubt. The movies, it must be remembered,

ommunity seems to be too small to support its picture
[heater. The films, too, are countless and for years, now,
[he production has continued unchecked. Yet, objection
able pictures on the whole have been comparatively few.
It would seem, consequently, that the producers, no
piatter what consideration may govern them in the mat
ter, are doing their own censoring with some degree of
[are. Morally, not much can be said against them. It
pay be, to be sure, that some pictures depict scenes that
