With splendid courage and with full realization of hfs
responsibility to the pdblic, President Wilson has given
notice of action in the coal strike situation.
He has appealed to the miners to withdraw their strike
order and prevent a stoppage of work. Coupled with this
appeal is a firm and unequivocal declaration that if the
strike is not called the law will be enforced and the in
terests of the nation will be protected.
From his sick bed the President has issued a state
ment outlining his position, in which this paragraph
stands out as a solemn warning to selfish interests:
It is time for plain speaking. These matters
with which -we now deal touch not only the
welfare of a class, but vitally concern the well
being, the comfort and the very life of all the
people. I feel it is my duty in the public in
terests to declare that any attempt to carry out
the purpose of this strike and thus paralyze the
industry of this country, with the consequent
suffering and distress of all our people, must
be considered a grave moral and legal wrong
against the government and the people of the
United States. I can do nothing else than to
say that the law will be enforced and means will
be found to protect the interests of the nation
' in any emergency that may arise out of this un
happy business.
This declaration of the determination of the admin
istration to protect the national interest, this recognl
tion of the paramountcy of the public interest, draws the
issue between class and people. It is a rallying cry to
all patriotic citizens in the midst of the clamor and ,up
roar of industrial strife.
There is no dodging, no shiftiness, no pandering to po
litical expediency on the part of President Wilson. "The
law will be enforced" and "the means will be found to
protect the interests of the nation in any emergency."
Upon this platform the President has taken his stand,
and behind him will line up the millions of loyal, patriot
ic citizens who place the interests of all the people be
fore their own individual interests.
There is law now upon the statute books to uphold the
arm of the Executive in his defense of the nation against
class attack. The Lever act, under which food and fuel
control were exercised during hostilities, is still in full
force and will remain so until peace has been formally
proclaimed. It imposes severe penalties upon those who
conspire to interfere with the production and distribu
tion of fuel, such as a strike in the bituminous fields, un-
doubtedly would bo. It authorizes the President to fix
prices and make rules for th$ distribution of fuel ; it em
powers him to take over and operate mines and in many
other ways exercise supervision over the production of
That Federal troops may be employed to guard min
ing property and to protect miners who are willing to
work in the face of a Btrike there can be no doubt. If
the government has the constitutional right to operate
trains in order to keep the mails moving, it has the right
to procure the fuel necessary to the operation of trains in
interstate commerce.
The mines must be operated at all costs in order to
avoid a national calamity, and if the law upon the stat
ute books is insufficient Congress should enact additional
legislation to give the government ample power to deal
with the situation in accordance with President Wilson's
stated purpose.
Let Congress now show its courage in this critical situa
tion. Let the Senate and House demonstrate that they
are brave enough to oppose an organization containing
hundreds and thousands of voters, cast aside thoughts of
political advantage and stand up and be counted as
champions of all the people, regardless of class.
An industrial crisis now confronts the United States,
in common with other nations. Either the government
must rule for the benefit of all the people or class domi
nation will subvert the government in favor of some
against the many. Unless organized labor as a whole re
pudiates the coal miners and insists that they shall stand
by their contract, the result will inevitably be a clash be
tween the government and organized labor a most re
grettable conflict, from any point of view. All the ar
duous progress of organized labor toward permanently
better conditions, all the confidence and admiration which
it won by its splendidly patriotic conduct during the war,
would be jeopardized by the antagonism that would
spring up in the hearts of patriotic citizens against any
person or organization that dares to align itself against
the United States.
This feeling of antagonism would not be confined out
side of labor unions. It would include ten of thousands
of union members who are already fretting against the
ill-advised moves of some of their leaders. Union labor
as a whole is American, not foreign. It keeps step to the
music of the Union. It will not be wheedled into a po
sition of antagonism to the government of the United
States by the plausible arguments of leaders under alien
influence. If union labor cannot be American and join
in the international movement it will be American and cut
out this internationalism that is drawing it into conflict
with the government.
Health and strength to Woodrow Wilson, President of
the United States! The people respond to his rallying
cry and will support him in this business to the end.

Many "Catch Their Death" While Sleeping Observe the
Hair on the Monkey' Arm.
We believe that in this article many may find added
years of life. We mean to advise you concerning the
protection of your body at night during cold weather.
The advice is intended especially for the very old and
for young children.
While asleep your vitality is lowered. You take in less
oxygen. Your heart pumps less energetically. It needs
rest The mysterious fluid of the nerves is withdrawn to
ward the solar plexus fro mthe extremities. Your sys
tem, like a sleeping garrison, needs every possible pre
caution against the enemy.
The enemy during the fall and winter months is cold.
If your feet are cold, your heart must forego its rest
and work hard while you sleep to pump more blood to the
extremities. If your wrist are cold, the blood passing
through the great channels lying just below the skin is
chilled on every journey.
Laugh, if you choose, at an editor giving advice about
bedding instead of talking statesmanship. But consider
carefully the following advice:
If you are cold at night, sleep between blankets, rather
than between linen or cotton sheets.
It exhausts your vitality greatly to heat over and over
again throughout the night a pair of cold, clammy sheets.
With wool next you, you retain more of the natural
warmth. k
Wise old Von Moltke, Germany's great Danish protec
tor, slept between and traveled about with a pair of
light woolen blankets, which he used as sheets. They are
not very expensive, and an investment in a few pairs to
be used and laundered Instead of sheets will pay any
household well.
Use fllannel nightgowns. Make your children use them,
and let your children sleep between blankets always
when it is cold. Have no foolish notions about "making
them rugged and inuring them to hardship." That sort of
inuring often ends in the graveyard.
A wise thing for those low in vitality, especially for the
old, is to have for wear at night warm woolen stockings.
They economize heat and help the system to get full
Remember that heat is life. The main difference be
tween a dead and live thing is a difference of tempera
Make sure that in turning and twisting at night you
do not wiggle the covers off. When you settle down for
your eight or nine hours of imitation death see that you
are protected.
Never sleep on your bac. Encourage the habit of sleep
ing on your right side. If you sleep on your left side,
you put the weight of the body on your heart and make
it work at a disadvantage.
What about the hair on a monkey's arm?
Well, just this:
Nature lets all animals know by instinct that they must
be careful of themselves while asleep. Your household
dog, poor, foolish creature, turns round and round before
he lies down to sleep on the smooth rug. He remembers
faintly the days when he was a wild animal and used to
turn round in that way to hollow out a bed in the dry
Your greatgrandfather the monkey, when he gets up
to the. chimpanzee or gorilla stage, sleeps with his arms
curled up over his head, protecting his neck and the huge
blood vessels in it. The hair grows in opposite directions
on his upper and lower arm, so that each may turn the
rain as it falls.
Darwin says that on man's arm the hair, remnant of
our wild state, grows even now as it does on the gorilla
That if we should sleep as Mr. Gorilla sleeps, with arms
curled over our heads, our poor, foolish remnant of mon
key hair would try its best to turn the rain, the hairs
growing in one direction above the elbow and in a con
trary direction below the elbow. Look and see for your
What has that omnkey hair to do with careful clothing
at night?
Nothing at all. It was just mentioned in the heading,
thinking it might arouse your curiosity and induce you
to read what we think may do you good.
Whatever you do yourself, tell your old father or moth
er to take this advice about sleeping between blankets
and wearing warm stockings at night.
If he or she says that it is nonsense, and that people
used to live to be very much older before such talk was
heard, read what follows aloud very respectfully:
The Vicomte d'Avenel wrote a history of material civil
ization in France. He dsmonstrated clearly the fact
that average health and average length of life have de
veloped with modern ideas and scientific theories.
For instance:
in tne good old days of the fifth century in 1459,
to be exact an official census was taken of the large and
populous city of Ninies.

modern plumbing and bathing and other sanitary tom-
foolishness make these people live long?
The wind blew through the imperfect windows at night.
It caught and killed the aged. They had never read the
Times on the subject of nightgowns.
Diseases of all kinds was strewn about the dirty streets
without sewers. That disease caught first of all the old,
with their vitality low.
If you want to live to be over sixty, listen to us when
we talk about health. For, truly, we have studied the
matter. We know something of what we preach, and
those who have heeded us with profit are many. Wash

Norway's prohibition is of the 50 per cent kind. Cham
pagne, sherry and beer continue to flow freely. What is
the Norwegian word for bonedry?
Corpus Christi is bent on putting a $5,000,000 sea wall
behind her sea shore; and every other coast town in Tex
aes shouldn't wait for the next hurricane.
In 1914 the average coemption of sugar in this coun
try was 8(5 pounds. This year is was eighty-two pounds,
but if anybody thinks he saved money by not eating the
extra 4 pounds he might think again.
1 Tusculum Notes t
The Philologian Literary Society
held an open meeting of exceptional
interest on Tuesday evening.
Robert Rankin made a short ad
dress of welcome, followed by a pa
per by I. A. Heller, answering the
criticism on the Y. M. C. A. during
the war. Mr. Heller spoke from per
sonal knowledge and varied experi
ence in France during the late war.
The society paper "Tid-Bits" was
read by George Scutt and was terse,
humorous and interesting. The lead
ing feature on the program was a
mock trial, the State of Tennessee vs.
Bartholomew Higgins, for "moon-
Robert Rankin was the judge and
Robert Smith the clerk of the court.
The jury was from the community
and the following named men were
chosen: Messrs. Hathaway, Hirsch
man, Kelley, Todd, Walter, Britton,
Broyles, Walker and Taylor. Lynn
Campbell was government inspector
and Walter Spurgeon was sheriff.
Lawyers for the defendants were
Chas. Chandler and Herman Smith.
The state was represented by Walter
Gray and Ed Bishop. Clifford Dil
lard was the neighborhood teacher
and the preacher, Lola Henard,
both certainly acted well their part.
Ted Finley represented the miller.
The real fun centered around Hig
gins, himself, who was Blake Smith,
his wife, Carl Broyles, and his daugh-
ter, Mack Ramsey. Broyles and Ram
sey deserve mention for their realis
tic impersonation qf the female char
acters, and Smith was a typical Hill
Billy moonshiner.
The cry of the feminine athletes
has been answered, and an athletic,
gymnastic, physical culture organiza
tion is being formed with Miss Selby
at the head. More of this club will
be heard and seen later.
The "PEP" society is a useful or
ganization when cheers, college yells

The open session of the Althean
literary society which was held in the
McCormick Chapel Thursday even
ing was a pronounced success.
The president, Miss Muriel Rose
crans, spoke a few words of intro
duction, and the secretary, Miss Pau
line Russell, called the roll.
The program was opened with a
song and a yell by the society, follow
ed by a reading by Miss Estelle Har
ris, who demonstrated her subject
with good powers of imitation.
Miss Rolien told, with good effect
a German and English legend, trac
ing the resemblance between the
mythical characters and the eharac
teristics of the two nations.
A song by Evelyn Rankin and Hel
en Holt and a ragtime monologue by
Alice Rosecrans, preceded the read
ing of the society paper, "The Spec
tator," by Eugenia Earnest, which
sparkled with clever items and in
teresting news notes.
Miss Helen Ashley gave a pleasing
recital, after which came the farce
which was cleverly acted and very
mirth provoking.
The girls' societies are evidently
not falling behind in the least this
All the good talks in Tusculum do
not come from the outside. Dean
Hirschman gave an address on "Citi
zenship" one morning this week that
every student might consider himself
privileged to hear.
Morris Buquo was taken to the
Greeneville hospital and operated up
on for appendicitis this week. Re
ports have been favorable up to the
present time.
Mrs. Dugger returned Friday from
Knoxville, where she has been at
tending a meeting of the synodical
missionary society.
Miss Winple, of .the Asheville Nor
mal School, and Miss Hallook, of the
Asheville Home school, visited Tuscu
lum College on their way home from
the synodical meeting, and were the
guests of Mrs. A. C. Holt.
There will be a Hallowe'en party
in the gymnasium on the evening of
October 31. Classes will come in
costumes and do stunts according to
their respective abilities.
Dr. Jere A. Moore, of Atlanta, Ga.,
preached in the Tusculum church
Sunday evening.
The singing and music at the morn
ing service Sunday excited much fa
vorable comment. The anthem se
lected by request, was especially fine
and a violin solo by Nick Cavellero
was an added attraction.
Dr. Findley, of Hot Springs, N. C,
will preach in the Tusculum chureh
next Sunday evening.
