Other Block LIFE OF ONE BOY IS AS SACRED AS ANOTHER. A good member of the Friends church has objected 1 to the editorial in last week's Times referring to the exemption of members of certain re ligious bodies from the operation of the draft law. We can appreciate how one can have a sacred rever ence for the faith of his father, and feel that criticism is like making an attack on a friend, and especially is this true with a church affiliation. Now is a good time, however, to show that w'e place love of country above any religion or creed. In fact we believe now is a test time— whether a man is thoroughly loyal to "the hand that feeds him" or that it is of minor importance and secondary to some man-made ordi nance. Every sect and cVery people will endorse the Bible commandment "Thou Shalt Not Kill." We favor, however, protection of our homes against an emeny. We do not want to put a certain class of our people on the firing line but let all go without discrimina tion. When g certain person says his religion forbids going on the fir ing line, ask him if a Methodist mother values the life of her boy any less than does the mother of a Quaker. The front-line trench must be filled by someone. WAR ITEMS THAT WILL PERHAPS INTEREST YOU. Did you know that the Italian ront is longer than the French, British and Belgian fronts combined.

That the traffic on the roads be hind the British front is denser than the traffic in Fifth avenue, New York, and is controlled by traffic policemen. That the French have organized a corps of scenic painters to* paint scenery to deceive the German air men. That in one day the French fired $1,600,000 worth of shells at Arras: that In one week the Germans fired 240 train loads of shells at Verdun; that in one month the British Ired 5,000,000 shells on the Somme.
