TWO CINCINNATI PARADES
Interesting Comparison of Organizations Which Took
Part In the Recent Liberty Loan Parade With Those
That Marched In the Personal Liberty Parade In 1914.
Cincinnati has many parades. Some of them are creditable to the city
and some are not. Her last parade was an honor to the city. It waa the
Liberty Loan Day parade. Compare this with another liberty parade held in
Cincinnati in 1914 by the wets. That parade was under the auspices of the
German-American Alliance, backed by the Personal Liberty League. From
the Cincinnati papers we reproduce the organizations which topic part in
these two parades, leaving out the names of bands, grand marshals, etc. It
will be observed that the organizations which made up the 1914 wet parade
were conspicuously absent in the Liberty Loan raracte. wonaer wnyi

No Use For Wet Town.
Uncle Sam does not have much us
for a wet town. He maintains a drj
zone about training camps, demands
that wet towns near soldier stations
clean up or shut up their saloons, and
prohibits the selling or giving oi
giving of liquor to soldiers in uni
form. Now the government has issued s
new army order which says soldiers
in truck companies must camp out
side wet towns. This prevents sucr.
companies being entertained in towns
if those towns tolerate saloons.
And yet some people do not seem
to realize that Prohibition is s pari
of the war program.
BAD SPRING FOR LIQUOR TRAFFIC
In April 3,520 saloons and 35 breweries in Indiana closed their
In April hundreds of saloons were voted out of Illinois and Wis
consin. In April 20 New York cities voted dry, and ousted 700 saloons.
In April 1,500 saloons were closed in Texas by order of the war
In April the Legislature of wet Massachusetts ratified the Fed
eral dry amendment.
The first of May, Michigan became dry and 3,250 saloons and 60
The first of May New Hampshire became dry and 500 6aloons
The first of May 1,000 Chicago saloons closed for lack of business.
A LITTLE SUM IN MATHEMATICS
Get your pencil and a piece of paper and let us do a little um
There are 60 minutes in an hour, and 24 hours in a day. There
fore, there are 1,440 minutes in a day of 24 hours. There are 365
days in a year and 1,440 times 365 is 525,600, which is the number
of minutes in one year.
Suppose Ohio should say to Uncle Sam, "I am going to buy $200
worth of thrift stamps for every one of the 525,600 minutes in a

OUTLOOK IS EXCELLENT
For the Adoption of the State Prohibi
tion Amendment In November.
Columbus, Ohio. Leaders in the
campaign to vote Ohio dry in Novem
ber are much gratified over the out
look. They report an optimistic spirit
among workers and a determination
on the part of the people to close the
breweries and saloons and save man
power and food stuffs. There is also
a feeling that the beer business is
more or less pro-German and that
the patriotic thing to do is to get
rid of it
The petitions to initiate the Prohi
bition amendment are in the hands of
the County Dry Organizations, and in
many of the counties they are being
circulated and the voters are anxious
to sign. Many former wets are said
to be signing the dry petitions this

WHAT CAN BE DONE HERE
Dry Denver Solve Problem of What
to Do With Brewery Buildings.
Columbus, Ohio. Weta and drya
here in Ohio are interested m the re
port from Denver as to the transfor
mation of the old Cours brewery un
der prohibition. When the concern
was operated as a brewery, it did a
monthly volume of business amount
ing to $60,000, and employed 80 per
sons. Now the plant makes malted milk
and another part of it turns out
pottery. The volume of business at
this time amounts to $150,000, a
month, and 200 persons are employed.
Furthermore, the pay is 25 per cent
better now than when beer was man
ufactured. Recently the Denver Poet
contained a most interesting descrip
tion of what the plant is now doing
and made comparisons with what it
used to do when operated as a brewery.
OUT of the bleeding heart of Europe there comes a cry heard
above the moan of the broken body racked with pain. The
Soul of Freedom, at bay with Death, cries out to save Liberty for
the race of men.
It is your Liberty, your nation's freedom, your children's
birthright, that is fighting for its life.
All that life holds for you as American is at stake in this
war, and you must fight for it to the utmost limits of your power.
We cannot all be in the trenches, but every one of us can
and must sustain those who are. Uncle Sam needs a lift over there.
Not as an act of mercy, but as an act of war as a Soldier
of the Nation help the Red Cross heal, support, cheer' our Sol
ers and Sailors of Liberty that they may fight the sooner, the
harder, the longer in this Holy War.
Give to the Red Cross every dollar, every cent that you
possibly can give till your heart says stop. Millions of loyal Ameri
cans will pledge, a part of each month's earnings during June, July,
August and September. $100,000,01)0 must be raised in one week.

INVEST IN HUMANITY
By JOHN OLIVER LA GORCE
Associate Editor, National Geographic Magazine.
"CUFFER Little Children to come unto me," de-
clared the compassionate Christ.
But never since He dwelt in flesh upon the earth
have there been so many "Little Children" in need of
compassion as now.
There are the "Little Children" who have gone to
France for you and me and for Christendom and by
going have given their all. Can you do less? Shall
you keep from your boy or your neighbor's boy that
which is symbolic of the Compassionate One by neg
lecting the call of the Red Cross Mother?
Then there are the uncounted "Little Children"
of our allies who have fallen wounded and ill in de
fense of their home fires. Who but the Red Cross
Mother can know the suffering, the anguish, of the
shell-torn, thirst-stricken soldier who lies upon the
ghostly bed of No Man's Land? Will you deny him
the life-giving cup ?
Think also of the "Little Children" of devastated
lands. Some are "Little Children" in size and tender
years. Others, alas, are mature in stature and age,
but none the less "Little Children" in their helpless
ness their abject need. Can we in our plenty with
hold from them the bare bread of existence? Can
we still our inner voice with the thought that others
will bear our burden, when in our heart we must
know that there are no others?
The Red Cross helps no one who does not need
help a hundred times more than we need the money.
Therefore, let us give, give until we feel it, give until
it pinches. Then and only then we shall know that
we have indeed offered the "Little Children" of the
war the tender compassion of a nation.
What the Italian Premier Thinks
the American Red Cross
When the Austrian last October
rooted the Italian Army by trickery
and drove before them half a million
refugees, the part which the American
Red Cross played In this stupendous
tragedy will go down tn the history of
Italy and the world as one of the most
magnificent dashes of relief work that
bas ever come to light.
Listen to what the Italian Premier
ald of this work In his address at the
opening of Parliament early last De
cember: "Oar soul Is stirred again with ap
preciation and with admiration for the
magnificent dash with which the Amer
ican Red Cross has brought us power
ful aid In our recent misfortune. We
attribute great value to the co-operation
which will be given us against the
common enemy by the prodigious
activity and by the exuberant and con
sistent force which are peculiar to the
And this, mind you, was only a little
over a month after the American Reu
Cross made 1U triumphant dash into
Khaki Clad Boy With a Lump in
Throat Welcomes Home
Imagine your boy on a troop train
bound for some United States seaport
where e. transport lies ready to take
him and his regiment "over there."
He never felt healthier In his life In
body. In mind? If he Suds moments
when his thoughts begin to race back
toward you, wondering what you are
doing, can you blame him if occasion
ally something lumps In bis throat
about as comfortable as a billlurd ball?
And then the train grinds to a stand
still Some one yells, "Big eats; oh.
boy I" as several Red Cross uniforms
flash out In the crowd on the station
platform. For here Is a Red Cross
emergency canteen. Here he can get
coffee good, hot coffee sandwiches,
candy, tobacco, fruit, postal cards and
almost anything that he may have for
gotten. Does it help bis spirits? Does It?
Does it cheer him to get these snacks
of good home tasting food served by
women like those in his own family?
Probably the most valuable part of the
Red Cross canteen service work Is the
effect of the smile and cheer from the
women who are In charge. Soldiers
write frequently sucb messages as the
following, Indicating their apprecia
tion of this branch of Red Cross
"The Red Cross of Chicago met as
with coffee, sandwiches and post cards.
I hope the Montana women are all do
ing the same. Chicago sure Is a big
city and plenty of pep. Join the Red
Cross and help the boys who have vol
unteered their lives."
There are now, more than BOO of
these Red Cross canteens or refresh
ment units located at the Important
railroad centers In the United States.
Every commander of a troop train has
a list of these canteens, so that he can
call upon the Red Cross for this serv
ice at these stations en route.
Women Give $36,000,000.
Thousands of patriotic women In all
parts of the United States are freely
giving their time to make surgical
dressings, knit goods, hospital gar
ments, comfort kits, socks and sweat
ers. The value of this labor given by
American women la estimated at $36V
000.000 a year.
The Red Cross operates In France a
motor truck transportation service
with 200 motor trucks.

Wilson to exercise his wartime au
thority to prohibit the manufacture
of light wines and beers, as well as

a proclamation prohibiting the use
of foodstuffs In the manufacture of

the house before final passage of tho
bill and opponents expect to defeat
Representative Candler of Missis
sippi, Democrat, In charge of the bill,
and others, vigorously opposed the
Randall amendment. "You can not
hurry the president Into Issuing that
proclamation by adopting this amend
ment." Mr. Candler said. ,-I am con
vinced that the president will issuo
the proclamation whenever he be
lieves it is necessary to do so to con

Representative Randall was Joined
in support of his amendment by Rep
resentatives Carnway of Arkansas,
Democrat, and Mondell of Wyoming,
Republican. "With an Intensive cam
paign of spying Into flour barrels and

RESULT OF AIR RAID
Orders Registration ot Youths
of 21 on June 5.
Washington, May 21. Upon ap
proving the act of congress bringing
under the army draft law all men at
taining the age of 21 years since the
first registration day, June 6, 1917,
President Wilson Issued a proclama
tion formally fixing next June 5 as
the date for new eligibles to appear
before their local boards.
Male persons, whether citizens or
not, are required to register. Exemp
tions under the original act, includ
ing men already in the military seiV
ice, apply, and to these the new law
adds ministerial and medical stu
dents now pursuing their studies.
The president's proclamation quotes
the law and gives notice to all per
sons subject to it in the states and
the District of Columbia to appear
for registration on June 5 between
the hours of 7 a. m. and 9 p. m. State
governors and members of local
boards are called upon to perform the
duties already assigned to them.
It has beon estimated that about
800,000 men fit for active military
service will he made available to the
army by the next registration. Here
after it is planned to have registra
tions oftener than once a year, prob
Alaska, Hawaii and Porto Rico are
not named in the proclamation. A

Thirty-seven Killed and 155 Injured
In London District.
London, May 21. Thirty-seven per
sons were killed and 155 injured in
the London area during Sunday
night's air raid. Five Germans also
were shot down. Six persons were
injured in the provinces.
More deaths and injuries to inno
cent inhabitants of London were
caused in the latest German air raid
than any raid this year except that
of Jan. 28, when 58 people were killed
and 173 were injured.
This was the sixth raid of the year,
the last one having been made March
7. The provinces got off lightly, as
usual, virtually all the bombs drop
ped outside of London having fallen
into open place. Spectators had a
splendid view of an aerial fight, which
resulted fatally to one of the raiders.
His machine fell in flames to the ac
companiment of cheers of watchers.
