'FATHERS' CLUBS."
"What sort of a father are you?"
This question is found on every pro
gram of what is cj
aimed to be the
first fathers' club in the United States,
organized at Council Bluffs, Iowa, a
little over a year ago.
Ten clubs, with an average mem
bership of fifty have been formed dur
ing the year for the purpose "of
bringing the fathers into closer touch
with the children, the teachers, and
hoard of education. In an endeavor to
hiring about the very best, results for
the betterment of the children." The
motto of these clubs is, "make the in
different different." Membership is
limited to males 21 years of age or
over.
Each month the "fathers' clubs" de
bate such questions as: Are our chil
dren trained for, or away from, the
age in which we live? How many
children out of 1,000 reach high
school in our town? AVliat about the
rest? Or they discuss topics like the'
following: Comparative public ex
pedltures in various states: juvenile
courts school house instruction com
pulsory education open air schools
playgrounds medical inspection the
sex question business education the
cultural influence of newspapers, mag
azines, music, books, etc. women on
the school board: the schoolhouse as
community center.
Guests representfng various com
munity groups are invited to the
meetings interested fathers from oth
?r districts clergymen physicians of
the neighborhood members of the
board of education mayor and city
council and the Bar association. The
clubs were addressed at different
times during the year by a judge of
the United States circuit court, uni
versity professors, senators, school
superintendents, a. judge of the supe
rior court, a member of the state
board of education, as well as other
interested citizens.
It is planned' in the near future to
form the existing clubs into a fed
eration, with a uniform program for
all the clubs every month.
WARRING AGAINST SOCIETY.
In extenuation of or excuse for acts
of violence committed by various
cranks, fanatics, criminals and other
undesirables who choose violence as
their means of securing what they de
sire, it is often stated that these acts
are acts of war, and they are justified.
That was the line of defense offered
by more than one writer for the dia
bolical dynamite outrages at Los An
geles and others which were parts of
the same plot. The men implicated, it
was said, were soldiers fighting for
a cause, the cause of labor. They were
enlisted in a war, and their acts were
acts of war, and not to be judged as
if they were merely the separate acts
of individual criminals. On this the
ory the country was asked to look
with lenience on the destruction of
property and the maiming and killing
of human beings. These things had
been done by men who were said to be
consecrated to the great cause of lib
erty and justice, but who were shown
by uncontroverted evidence, to be
common thugs and assassins, hiring
themselves out to destroy and mur
der at so much a job. and spending
their time and money, until the next
Job was ready, In the appropriate sur
roundings of the low groggery and the
bawdy house.
War is sometimes held to be one
of the horrors into which humanity
has fallen in its descent from its pris
tine purity. It is nothing of the sort.
It is an evidence of the persistence of
the brute in us, notwithstanding mill
ions of years of upward progress. Not
withstanding what we see going on In
Europe, we are leaving the brute be
hind, though it is slow work. But,
deadly and desolating though such a
war as that into which some of the
alleged friends of the downtrodden
would plunge us, if they could, the
war of neighbor against neighbor and
class against class.
Just now the spectacular fight
across the ocean attracts our atten
tlon. Hut, while we are watching
that, we must not forget that we have
at home an element which, In all its
activities, tends to lead the
countrv
into a war in which society would
have to fight for its very existence.

SCOUTING AJVD FIGHTING.
In one of his late official reports Sir
Jdhn French, field marshal of the
British forces in France, gives high
praise to the work done by the flying
I department of the army. He says that
for many days past an average of
[nine flights of 100 miles each have
been made by the aviators under his
command each day, and that through
t»e work of these acouts it ha* been
possible to keep accurately Informed
of the movements of the enemy, and
also of detachments of their own
army which were separated from the
main body. The superiority of the fly
ing over the mounted scout as a col
lector of information is manifest.

plane with the forces of the enemy.
The^j could pass his lines only by
stealth, and this was a difficult and
dangerous thing to do. They were
obliged to make wide, detours to dis
cover, if possible, what was going on
toward the rear, and, while one man
would have served to carry the In
formation, It was necessary to send
cavalrymen in large numbers togeth
er In order that they might defend
each other.
With the aeroplane all this has been
changed and simplified. A single ma
chine mounts, bearing possibly two
men, flies swiftly across the enemy's
lines and as far as desired into the
territory controlled by him the scout
observes what is being done, what
'.•reparations are being made. In what
direction large bodies of men are
moving, where the guns are being
mounted, returns and reports. The
flight can be made so high that there
is little danger of gun fire, and about
the only thing to be feared, aside
from a mechanical accident, is attack
from one of the enemy's planes, and
from that there is a good chance of
escape.
General French observes that while
there have been some flights in the
air, and a few bombs have been drop
ped into the enemy's works, the activ
ities of the flying men have been con
fined chiefly to scouting. The long
predicted "battles in the air," with
great fleets of flying machines attack
ing each other, has not yet come to
pass. There have been a few thrill
ing duels, but that is all. The busi
ness of a scout in search of informa
tion is to get his information aa
quickly as he can, and not to get into
fight if he can help it. And, having
got this information, it is supremely
necessary that he shall make all pos
sible haste back with it. And scout
ing rather than fighting is the busi
ness of the air man under present
conditions.
A TALKATIVE DIPLOMAT.
A man may conceal a vast amount
of ignorance and unfitness by keeping
his mouth shut, and even for the wise
man it is safer to talk too little than
too much. Sir Lionel Carden talks
too much.
Sir Lionel is the British ambassador
to Brazil. A few months ago he was
the British ambassador to Mexico.
While stationed in the City of Mexico
he had the very poor taste to com
ment unfavorably on the policy of the
United States with reference to Mexi
co. and to intimate that Uncle Sam,
or his official representatives, did not
know their business. It was denied
that he expressed himself in exactly
the manner reported, but it appears
to be certain that he had discussed
the policy of a country with which
he had nothing to do in a manner en
tirely out.of placeunder the circum
stances. For this he was recalled and
transferred to Brazil.
Sir Lionel is again reported to have
been talking. A New York news
agency reports him as deploring the
withdrawal of American troops from
Mexico, and to have said that this was
merely turning over the Americans
and other foreigners in Mexico to be
the victims of the anarchy which he
says still prevails all over Mexico. He
said further, according to the report,
that while Huerta had at least a sort
of government, Carranza has none.
Assuming that Sir Lionel actually
said what he is reported to have said,
the most charitable construction that
can be placed on his speech is that he
is suffering from a mental malady.
Possibly he may have dined, not wise
ly, but too well. American diplomats
are, as a rule, men without previous
experience, who have been given im
portant positions in reward for politi
cal activity. Some of them say some
fearful and wonderful things. Not
many of them have ever been guilty
of such asininitv as this English
knight who, presumably, has been
trained for years in the school of dip
lomacy.
THE WAR TO DATE.
The division of a great campaign
into its distinctive stages is a matter
for experts in military science, and
even they must wait until sufficient
time has elapsed to enable them to
look at things in the proper perspect
ive, and to understand fully the
meaning and effect of each movement
made or attempted. For purposes of
current comment, however, one may
make such temporary divisions as
suit his taste.
What at this time may be fairly
considered the first stage of the pres
ent war ended when the Germans
reached their "farthest south" in
their efforts to capture Paris. That
attempt failed, and it was necessary
for the Germans to change their plan
of campaign. The great battle which
raged down almost the entire length
of the Marne valley for a full week
turned back the tide of German inva
sion and placed the advantage with'
the armies of the allies.
The German armies have retreated
about half the distance between Bel
gium and Paris on their southward
march,, and the indication^ are that
there is now in preparation, if it is
not actually being fought, a gigantic
battle along the Alsne river which will
decide whether the Germans are to
continue their retreat or can hold
their present position until they can
get their forces in shape for an ef
fective resumption of the offensive.
The battle of the Marne decided the
failure of the first great advance on
Paris. The battle of the Aisne seems
likely to decide what may be called
the second stage of the campaign.
The Germans have been beaten
back some fifty or sixty miles, but
they have not been broken or shatter
ed or routed. No one of their six
great armies has been disintegrated or
Captured. They have lost men by
death and wounds and capture, and
the fact that they have left along the
w*y large stores of ammunition, many
runs and muoh equipment of all
kinds shows that the retreat, if order
ly, has been as rapid as possible. But
the rear guard resistance all the way
fHE
until solid footing could be reached
on new territory.
The chances are that It will be sev
eral days before there can be news of
anything decisive along the new line
of battle. There will be scattering re
ports of victories and defeats here
and there, but these are but incidents,
and they may have no bearing on the
general result. A regiment or a batal
lion may break the enemy's line and
win a coveted position, and yet, be
cause of the defeat of other parts of
its line and the failure of expected
support, it may be compelled to re
tire and abandon the fruits of its
victory. It will take some days to de
termine whether the line of battle is
to move toward or away from Paris.
The object of the Germans at the
beginning, an object well understood
all over the world and at all times
freely discussed in German army cir
cles, was, by means of their superior
organization, to combine weight of
numbers with force and speed to de
liver blow after blow, so furiously and
so rapidly, that the enemy would not
have time to recover. The following
of that plan brought the Germans al
most within a cannon shot of the
Paris forts, but the resistance at
length proved too great and the effort
had to be abandoned. It remains to
be seen whether or not the Germans
will be as successful as their allies
were in recovering from reverses and
again reversing the positions of at
tack and defense.
HOW WE KEPT THE PEACE.
New York Times: Why should the
plan to celebrate a century of peace
between the two branches of the Eng
lish-speaking race be deferred on ac
count of the war in Europe in which
one of them is involved? Certainly
the blessing of peace will not seem
less because of the conflict raging. If
that conflict be not stayed before next
Christmas Eve—the centennial of the
signing of the Treaty of Ghent—it will
be all the more appropriate that we
and our British brothers shall call the
attention of the world to the wonder
ful benefits that have followed the
long, uninterrupted reign of peace be
tween us and, so far as may be, to Its
causcs.
It cannot be denied that in that long
interval there have been deep-seated
differences and most serious occasions
for quarreling, or that we have ap
proached on the very verge of hostili
ties. The two gravest crises arose out
of the Alabama claims and the case
of Venezuela. The settlement of the
first was made possible by the cour
ageous and wise action of President
Lincoln's government in the autumn
of 1861 in the Trent affair, when,
putting aside pride and passion, and
disregarding the heated sentiment of
the country, a high rule of the rights
of neutrals was firmly established by
the frank admission-Vhat we had vio
lated it and were ready to make
amends. Without that magnanimous
concession the peaceful adjustment of
the Alabama question would in all
likelihood have been hopeless.
In the Venezuela matter the posi
tion of our government was not less
u.nus.ual and Impressive. Mr. Cleve
land made a bold stand for the princi
ple of arbitration. No interest of our
own was advanced beyond that which
we had in securing justice for a neigh
bor country within the legitimate
sphere of our influence. Nor was any
claim of that neighbor indorsed. We
simply insisted that her claims and
her rights should not be decided by
Great Britain alone, but should be
submitted to impartial arbitration. In
the light of previous history, it was
an amazing demand, and was at first
so treated by the British government.
But in the end that government recog
nized its essential justice. By the set
tlement that followed the bonds of
peace between that nation and our
own and the cause of general peace
were greatly strengthened.
The celebration of the peace cen
tenary will assuredly lead to the dis
cussion of these and other like ele
ments in the history of the last hun
dred years and cannot but make a
profound impression, upon all candid
minds throughout the civilized world.
AMERICANS ARE DRILLING.
Washington, Sept. 18.—The house
foreign affairs committee has before it
a concurrent resolution calling atten
tion to reports that American citizens
abroad were drilling with a view "to
joining one or the other of the bel
ligerents," and to the necessities of all
American citizens and the pTess to
maintain the strictest neutrality, by
conduct, word and act, as long as the
war lasts. The resolution was intro
duced by Representative Burgess of
Texas.
USE EXPLOSIVE BULLETS.
Petrograd, Sept. 18.—The general
headquarters of the Red Cross an
nounces that it has been informed by
its representatives with the First Rus
sian regiment at the front that when
Austrian fortifications have been cap
tured quantities of explosive bullets,
packed in special parcels and labeled
have been found.
The general headquarters of the
Red Cross has been requested to send
into the field a commission to investi
gate the charges.
OFFERS FREE HAIRCUTS.
London, Sept. 18.—A Reuter dis
patch from Petrograd says:
"Great enthusiasm continues to pre
vail throughout Russia and all classes
are doing their utmost to help in the
present emergency.
At Moscow, the barbers' guild has
offered to shave and cut the hair of
soldiers free of charge, while at Vilna
fifteen cab drivers have offered their
services to transport the wounded."
AMERICA NOT TO SEND SHIPS.
Washington, Sept. 18.—President
Wilson has no intention at present of
sending American battleships to Tur
key to relieve the fears of mission
aries, according to statements by of
ficials. He is considering the ques
tion raised by the abrogation of
treaties by Turkey.

GRAND FORKS DAILY HERALD, FRIDAY EVENING, SEPTEMBER 18, 191#.
Report Indicates Genferally
Healthy Condition at
Reform School.
Bismarck, N. D.. Sept. 18.—One of
the interesting belongings to the state
is the reform school at Mandan. By
referring to the report of Superintend
ent Brown to the board of control
which has been filed with the gover
nor, some idea of the work done at
the institution may be gained.
There are 76 inmates—63 boys and
13 girls—ranging in age from 8 years
to 20. They are compelled to attend
school four hours each day and to
perform a certain amount of work.
During the past several seasons they
have raised thousands of bushels Of
grain and vegetables, as well as meat
animals and poultry. For employ
ment the children have everything
which is to be found in normal life
outside the institution. For outside
work they have the farm and gardens
in the summer time and the caring of
the grounds, erecting buildings, build
ing stone wall and everything neces
sary in the upbuilding of a new
school.
New Buildings.
In building operations of the insti
tution the boys are trained to do all
kinds of work which belongs to that
trade. They manufacture the cement
blocks, do carpenter work, assist in
wiring, heating ancl plumbing work,
painting, etc. During the past year
they have built a root cellar 20x60
feet, With machinery shed over same
have done a large amount of work in
completing a dairy barn: have buHt
about 400 feet of retaining wall six
feet high from boulders gathered from
the farm: have made concrete blocks
and completed the walls of the boys'
cottage 40x60 feet: have manufactur
ed and laid 250 feet of 18-inch drain
tile, and in the work shop have made
all the window and door frames, stair
work, etc., for the new building. Be
sides this they have raise.d enough po
tatoes and other vegetables, besides
feed for stock for home consumption.
Build Dyke.
The boys have built a dyke to pre
vent the back-water of the Heart riv
er from flooding the school grounds
have hauled over 2,000 loads of earth
from the blurt for the fill have clear
ed out underbrush and undesirable
trees from the park and worked them
into cord wood in the amount of about
30 cords. They haul fuel, put up ice
and care for the stock in the winter.
A steam laundry is maintained, as
is also a tailor shoo, where clothes are
made and repaired.
Certain hours' in the day are given
over to amusements and recreation,
when the boys play baseball, football,
go swimming or skating or indulge in
other amusements agreeable to the
season. A brass band has been main
tained for several years, and an or
chestra has befen organized for the
girls.
GuestsAif Legislature.
During the session of the legislature
of 1913 the members invited the in
mates of the slhool as their guests
for a day at thjp capital city. They
spent a most:ehjbyable day. the mem
bers contributing to the fund to bear
all expenses of transportation and
amusement.
In closing his report to the board,
Superintendent'tT3rown calls attention
to the fact yJffjit the appropriation
should be rajfped ^. trifle in order that
insurance, repaid' and some new fur
niture may be .purchased. He also
calls attention tfl the fact that there
are boys over 18 years of age who be
long in the penitentiary instead of the
reformatory, for the reason that they
are incorigable at times and have a
very bad effect, on the younger boys.
He suggests that the board of control
should be authorized to make the
transfer any time thev find it neces
sary to the better interests of the in
stitution.
