needs soldiers. It conscripts them with
out giving the men any option in the
matter, but when it needs money
It asks for volunteers to give the use
of their money at 3 per cent. Dr.
Andrew Johnson, of Philadelphia, to
night pointed out to 2000 persons who
listened to the first lecture of the 13
day Chautauqua session, which opened
Dr. Johnson, hastened to explain that
he strongly favored the conscrlptive
method because, he said, any man who

Courses Am Outlined.
The afternoon session today was de
voted to outlining the proposed courses
of lectures and study within the smaller
circles of the Chatauqua and making
the preliminary announcements.
Jack Larson, employed as ticket
salesman at the auto entrance, was
overcome by what he said was "the
effect of the s-un's- rays. He was re
vived after emergency first-aid was
given him by visitors In the park.
In his decidedly humorous lecture,
entitled "Ell and Ennis," Dr. Johnston
showed that progress of much of the
world Is apparently blocked by the
failure to distinguish between service
and money standards.
In brief. Dr. Johnston's contention is
that Americans put the dollar mark
on everything. They value the lives
of men in dollars and cents, by con
scripting men, whereas when It comes
to raising money they depend on sub
scription. Why not conscript the money
as well? he asked. The response from
the crowd was answer enough.
Realty Blamed for Laziness.
There are four channels through
which wealth may be gained. Dr. John
Eton said. Real estate, he says, puts
a. premium on laziness by encouraging
people to hold property and allow it to
Increase In value without the expendi
ture of either effort or money upon it.
The trusts were hit hard by Dr.
Johnston, who said that the 60,000.-
000,000 of stocks, bonds and Indus
trial securities in the United States
Is more than two-thirds water. He
concluded his address by appealing to
the Nation in this hour of peril to re
main loyal to itself and to the world.
The attendance at the opening ses
sion was estimated by Secretary
Thomas A. Burke, of the Chautauqua
Association, to approximate 2000 per
sons. Following- the opening words by
Chairman C- H. Dye. the Lyric Quartet
cave several selections, and Francis
