REFORMING CRIMINALS
There is a popular impression that the inmates of jails
and prisons are as a whole a depraved class bent on crook
ed ways and that not many of them can ever be reform
ed Many employers would bo reluctant to give any kind
of a position to a man who had been in jail feeling that he
had a bad streak about him that would come out some day
Yet Mr Maude Ballington Booth head of the Volun
teers of America and an authority on prison work said in
a recent address that she had known personally more
than 18000 prisoners who had finished their sentences
and come out straight men
The greatest obstacle encountered by released pris
oners who want to go straight is the difficulty they fre
quently encounter in obtaining work If such a man who
really wants to make good finds himself rejected again
because of his record he forms the conviction that he
must live in any way he can if society wont let him work
then he must steal
A man of that type might not be a suitable candidate
for a position of trust until he had demonstrated a
thorough change of heart But if he has made a good re
cord in jail and shown an industrious disposition and a
docile temper there ought to be plenty of chances for him
to make a fresh start
Many prison inmates could be reformed if during their
jail terms they could be organized in gangs for work on
a farm Jails that have land attached find that the ex
perience of cultivating the soil is a healthful one for such
men It seems to turn their minds away from the crook
ed path and brings them more into harmony with the
world of honest endeavor It teaches them one of the
basic industrial arts and shows them that when they get
out they can make a liviilg They will never have any
trouble in selling good food products
U o
t
Tt is enough to make anyone heart sick to go through
dui districts in laige cities It is not strange that peo
ple get discontented in these dingy districts in which
buildings are in poor repair and dirt and disorder pre
vail And in most cities and towns there are some houses
that approximate the same condition
The living conditions prevailing in a town have a great
deal to do with the morals of the people Those who re
side in forlorn and ill kept tenements get dissatisfied
with life and are rebellious against the social system If
you move those people into attractive little apartments
or homes and induce them to maintain that condition
you reconcile them to life You incite them to pull them
selves up and show ambition and check the tendency to
engage in vices which often result from the discourage
ment of discontented people
The landlords of poorly kept homes usually say that
the tenants are careless ajid would not keep the property
up if it was improved That -is true in many cases If
discontented people who are sick of their unhappy sur
roundings would show more responsibility for improve
ment they would encourage real estate owners to keep
their property in beticr repair
It would pay landlords to make special inducements
to such tenants An owner could well afford to make
a discount on his rent to any family that would keep their
building and grounds in attractive condition and do some
thing to beautify them Or he could make the rate high
er to those who refused to cooperate in this way
HI kept homes are a blot on the nation and the c6m
lnunity A combined effort shouldbe made to produce
neat and cheerful conditions for the people who occupy
rented quarters

MAKING GOOD ON SALES
A man who bought an automobile in another state was
remarking the other day on the tremendous difference be
tween the attitude of the pctfple who sold him the car
before and after the deal was completed Before that
date they were calling on him about every day and mani
festing the keenest concern to please him But after
ward they seemed to have lost interest in him and the
car
The same man was speaking of burning coal and how
he had to learn through his own experiinqnts1 how to
avoid waste lie jbclicvcd it Would phy coal dealers to
make a study of scientific combustion so thoy could help
their customersmake thon fi vfhpr But prob
ably some he said would like to sec it burned up as soon
as possible so as to sell more
People who get out mechanical devices and machines
time and then people have discarded -them because they
did not understand how to run them right The company
that made or sold theru needed to give service to make
mem usenu
It has been said of some conscientious business peo
ple that they made such substantial stuff that it took too
long to wear it out The people who used it would come
bade and buy the same thing each time biit they had to
buy so rarely that it did not make much business for the
producer

government- In tho past two - years
the national servlco division of tho
Loglon has boon Instrumental 1
nettling claims in favor of veterans
totaling more than 10000000
Every veteran will be asked if he
was wounded or ga3scd or Injured by
accident if his health was impaired
In any way while In the service and
If he has received satisfactory med
ical treatment and compensation
It Is known that there aro many still
suffering In various ways as a result
of their military service who havo
never boon reached by government
relief Tho services of the Legion are
laid at the disposal of all persons In
this position
Thero are othor ex servlco men In a
more fortunato position who have re
established themselves financially
and can spure to their loss fortunato
comrades tho benefits to whlnch they
aro entitled under tho ponding adjust
ed compensation bill Theso persons
are to be asked If they will dovoto
tholr Bhare of the government com
pensation allowance to aid tholr
needy and disabled buddies In this
way tho Legion Intends to establish
a roatatlng fund for the Immediato
relief of all whose needs are too
pressing to wait on the course of
government procedure There are
thousands of these They will not be
helped by Uio passing of laws They
need care taken of them right away
according to local Legionnaires It
has been a case of lei Gcorgo do ItJ
and Georgo as usual has stayed
around tho comer This Is the condi
tion that tho rotating loan fund of tho
Legion has been designed to remedy
and the Leglonalres are con
fident that tho same old
spirit that brought in wound
ed comrades under Are will not
bo found around the corner in the
relieving of tho ex servlco man in
distress today
All veterans are to bo sought out
whether members of any soldier
organization or not The matter of
their membership in tho Legion is of
no consequence Tho fact is that
there Is no other organization of
sufficient scope to undertake and
carry through a national census of
veterans and with the very apparent
need of such a census the Legion has
taken it up
The recording of what choice each
veteran will make undor flvo alterat
ives provided for in the Adjusted
compensation um win bo a very
important result of tho census This
qupstlon is to bo asked of every ex
soldier in the community The bill of-
fors tho soldier his option of any one
of tho flvo following provisions for
compensation 1 adjusted pay for
tho terra of servlco put in 2 a
paid up 20 year insurance policy
3 expenses paid for a course In
vocational training 4 a loan for
tho purchase of a farm or home 5
application of a mans adjusted pay
on tho purchase of government im
proved land
The adjusted pay is to be set at the
rato of 100 a day for home servlco
125 a day for service overseas The
face value of the life insurance policy
offered is to bo S3S times tho
amount that
would bo received by
tho sumo man as adjustod pay
His
vocational training aid or farm or
home loan would ho 140 per cent of
what he would reclovo In cash
All back claims against tho govern
ment are likewise to bo entered in
the Legion census It a man did not
got his 60 bonus on discharge ho
is requested to make it known If tho
government owes him back pay
travol pay If his allotments or liberty
bonds havo gono astray if he has
nover received his Victory medal ho
Is to enter his complaint on tho
Legion questionnaire
Wo want to know everything that
every servlco man has got coming
to him is tho word that has como
from Stato Headquarters at Phoenix
That Is what tho local post is going
after
A Froo public chmplng ground has
