The funeral ar rangements have not as yet been an nounced. W. C. T. U. ITEMS Study Health It is not a fear of illness'or of death that we should encourage, but a love of health, a sense of respon sibility for the care of our bodies, a desire for bodily endurance and ef- ficitney and full achievement. If the mind is hxed on these ideals. and the already known means of ap proaching 1 them are utilized, the needless miseries that embitter the lives of so many may bo left to take care of themselves. It is not so much to fight disease as to cultivate health for happiness, contentment and moral gain that it brings The State Board of Health will supply you with literature re lating to restriction and prevention of any of the communicable diseases. Saloons Closed in Minneapolis The Public Safety Commission, of which Governor Burnquiest is chair man, has closed forty-three saloons. The sale of intoxicants to women under any circumstances Is prohibit ed. Saloons have been ordered not to open before 8:00 a. m., to protect the workingmen, ana to close promptly at ten o'clock. All cabarets have been closed, hun dreds of waiters, musicians and oth ers finding themselves out of em ployment. Dancing is prohibited in any place where intoxicants are sold. A man who orders a bottle of beer in a restaurant and then divides it with his wife is subject to a fine. Beer and the Boy Beer is far more dangerous to the republic than whiskey because it is the boy's drink. The "stein" is the first step toward a drunkard's grave. We have seen a good deal of college life both at home and abroad, and we never saw an undergraduate "spread" decorated with champagne bottles or lacking its pitchers of beer. The boy never Degins with whiskey, but never stops at beer. That's the truth. The beer-drinker in his twenties is the whiskey-drinker in his forties. The facts are too obvious to need argu ment. The change may not be so rapid or evident abroad as in Ameri ca simply because spirits are as a rule out of the reach of the masses there because of their cost. But any one who has tried to sleep in a hotel chamber overlooking the garden or park in which is held a German stud ents' "Kommers" knows that the boy does not need anything stronger than beer to get uproariously drunk and to "keep it up" till midnight or later. We have no plea to enter on behalf of the distiller, but as between whis key and beer we would say if the government can only stop one of the two let it stop beer in whose cheap and boozy depths the boy takes his first lesson in intoxication. And the advocates of "these milder bever ages" know what they are about when they beg that beer may be retained and protected with a halo 'round the "stein." One of the best signs of the times is found in the fact that both under graduates and alumni of Yale and Harvard have by a well conducted referendum, lately voted to banish all intoxicants from their farewell spreads and reunion banquets. The boy is getting the better of his beer at last, even while certain of his fool friends are pleading for its retention supposing he is still guzzling as he did fifty years ago. But it is the brewer, not he boy, who is raising all this hullabaloo. All Favor Prohibition . "I am unqualifiedly of the opinion that national prohibition during war to prevent diseases, save food used in the manufacture of liquor, and to promote Jiaiipnal piyvxluctivo effici ency is not only desirable but an ab solute necessity. Our brains must be clear and nerves steady to win this fight for humanity, and we must win. I believe, too, that this expresses the sentiment of all the people of Califor nia who do not directly profit by the manufacture or sale of liquor. "W. H. Thomas, "Judge of the Superior Court, San ta Ana, California." "I consider national prohibition ab solutely necessary to highest degree of efficiency. "Albert B. Ulrey, "Professor of Biology and Director of the Marine Biological Station, University of Southern California, Los Angeles, California." "I heartily approve of national prohibition during war as a measure certain to promote national efficiency save waste of food and capital, and decrease disease. It is clear to me that England and France would have been better off to-day had they dealt more vigorously with the drink prob lem at the outset "Drinking intoxicating liquors leads to' diosa?e of mind and body. It is not safe for the nation to trust the secrets necessary to be kept re garding iur defenses during the war time to people with diseased minds, for the protection of both nation and individuals; therefore, its sale should be prohibited. "Intoxication leads to debauchery and crime against the opposite sex. For tho fair name of American man hood, the stufT that poisons and ex cites men's mind3 and IkxUcs in times of war, and leads them to commit crimes against other men's mothers and sisters, should be abolished by na tional prohibition, and its use prohi bited by military , rules and regula tions providing severe punishment. "Simon Lake, "M. I. N. A. Inventor and Consult ing Engineer, Milford Connecticut." "By all moans Congress should enact immediately a nation-wide pro hibition law. With the nation at war and every -possible resource of food production certain to be strain- ed to the utmost we have neither ! men nor war material to waste in ! continuing an evil agency. Millions of bushels of grain are used annually in breweries and distilleries. The hun dred thousand laborers worse than wasted in the business should be farming or ready to fight. When martial law is proclaimed saloons al ways are closed. Why not now that war is declared? "Arthur Capper, "Governor of Kansas. Tdoeka. Kansas." : What About the Babies The summer has always been the acknowledged time for work with babies and while, in reality, baby work is the year round, trie hot weather has its added responsibilities. The principal condition to be looked after isthe milk and water suonlv. There has been established lately the fact that even where the greatest precautions are being carritd out, certain children exhibit marked in testinal disturbances, where only the reat may be held accountable. If this be true, under the best condi tions, how much more hampered will those children be who struggle dur ing the heated term 'against such odds as insanitary housing conditions, lues lack of cleanliness and impure milk or water. All those conditions militate against the child's health welfare most seriously and must bo controlled by intelligent methods and ncessant vigilance.
