he read two advertisemente from the

money. The other asked to borrow •
money. In his inimitable tones, he
used to ask why one advertiser didn't
lend money to the other one.
Many people are asking seriously
now, why the jobs of two million
children are not given to two million
of the adults who are begging for
jobs. Seven million was the estimate
of unemployed adults In the fall of
1921. Many of these are parents liv
ing on the wages of their own child
Children work for low wages, and
are unorganized. Machines are so
perfected that even young children
can use them. The federal law effects
only a small percentage of child work
ers. There are 48 kinds of state laws
and more than 48 standards of en
forcement. All these reasons togeth
er, keep children enslaved.
No one can say truthfully, "I don’t
use goods made by children.’' Every
body who eats food, wears clothes,
uses material, reads anything, or plays
with anything, uses articles produced,
in part, by child labor. The child
ren’s share may have been done far
from the store where the customer
pays the final price. But somewhere
children have slaved, producing, la
beling, handling, or packing the godds.
Wearing out two million children
is a mean crime.
The richest country in the world
can assort to set free all children to
learn, to play and to grow.

HOW TO FIGHT VICE
The "international purity confer
ence" was treated to some sound ad
vice administered by a physician, Dr.
E. H. Pratt. It was not advice that
could be palatable to professional re
formers nor to the many well inten
tioned individuals who are anxious to
create virtue by statute.
i For example, Dr. Pratt said, "Don’t
try to legislate away cigarets. Cure
the nerve forces that create a demand
for cigarets in the individual."
The trouble of this advice, it leaves
no job of lobbying and professional
agitation. It proposes quiet, construc
tive work along inconspicuous lines,
which do not turn into headlines.
Worse than that, it deprives the re
former of his sense of power. To fql-
kell, will save five to ten million Rus

low Dr. Pratt would mean to give up
the imposition of the reformer’s will
upon his neighbors. It would mean
encouraging sports, health-giving ac
tivities, education, and the increase
of happiness in the world.
Dr. Pratt shows how far away from
a moral reformer be is by saying,
"Don’t stamp out appetites. Make
them your servants, not your mas
He ignores the fact that the refor
mer gets his pleasure from stamping
out. He often gets a salary for it,
too, but these are the few. The ama
teur reformers in his army get their
compensation out of the sense of
power, out of imposing their code on
Dr. Pratt says: "Don’t talk so much
about evils." But how is a salaried
reformer to keep his job without talk
ing and talking all the time about
evils?- There is one evil he doesn’t
talk about, and that is the evil by
which he lives, the evil of stupid, fu
tile, or mischievous law making, that
substitutes the statute for the consci
ence, which stimulates the spirit of
tyranny and bigotry, and creates re
bellion against the law.
There is one way, and only one
way, to accomplish virtue and over
come vicious habits. It is by appeal
ing to the voluntary action of the In
telligence and the moral sense by
creating and sustaining healthy bo
dies, and by giving the desires of the
1 mind and body wholesome means of
recreation and expression. The re
former with all his laws cannot des
troy the desires he is so afraid of.
He can and he does drive them into
perverted or excessive expression or
stupid attack. He does not stamp
them out. he stamps them in. He
makes himself an enemy of natural
happiness instead of fighting what is
bad by what is good. "It takes health
to cure disease," says Dr. Pratt,
"truth to cure error, and virtue to
That is rock bottom truth. The
church knows It. The real educator
knows it. But th© professional re
farmer with his passion for power
wants to make virtue by law, to im
pose his theories of what is, good by
political force, and keep in the lime
We think he is a costly nuisance
and his methods a public evil. He
contributes nothing to public virtue
or social health.
The way to get rid of vice Is to
make virtue pleasant, not dismal, to
build up healthy bodies and to create
plenty of means of recre
ation. A healthy appetite is the only
thing that can fight an unhealthy one.
A healthy pleasure Is the only thing
that can compete with an unhealthy
one. The real reformers are the ath
letic directors who are building heal
thy bodies and all those, including the
press, who encourage sports, the tea
chers who awaken the mind to pleas
ant and useful thoughts, the purvey
ors of good amusement in the thea
ters and concert halls, the writers and
publishers of books worth while, the
preacher’s who appeal to the moral
und religious nature, the physicians
who heal sick bodies and minds.
These are at work making virtue and
defeating vkie. These ar© th© build-;
era of the good life, which i£ the only
successful enemy of the bad. —Chica-
