A LEARNED professor has re

of eminent British Htudonts

whcreim before that time tho cost of
living had been going down.
It Is rather significant thnt tho
yenr 189G should bo selected from
which to dato an Inllntlon of prices,
luo to un enormous Inllntlun of tho
money supply, but such Is the Irony
.of statistics. Tho professor nyM:

rectly to tho gold supply, and that In
thlB period somebody should arise to
.suggest n change from gold on tho
ground that there Is too much of It,

ii now and Interesting form.
Thero has been more than nno hint
of n crusade against tho gold stand

most IusIh out on adopting It.
TACOMA. It now appears likely, Is
to have a public morals commis
sion. Some or tho persons ten
tatively named for membership have
indicated that they are prepared to
iii-rant the task with wide-open eyes,
oyes that see the needs of tl-o young
peopjo, us well as the errors young
lieoplo fall Into. Expressions from
these probable "commissioners,"
printed In the past few days, are en
couraging for this reason: Almost
without exception the women quoted
lmvo spoken of the necessity for find
lug a proper and yet attractive outlet
for youthful energy: none has seem
d to concern herself with providing
additional apron s-rings, municipal
or family, to restrict this youthful
It Is possible that tie commls-dou
can go u long way toward making Tn
coma's morals public, which should
bo tho real aim, though not to be
hoped for In the lifetime of one or
Kovorul sets of commissioner. Make
the public's morals public. This will
t-ome about only when stealth has
lieeu supplanted by openness, when
young folks can iiuhmuIiIo us a mat
ter of course nnd not as a matter of
"Tho trouble with us." said Mayor
Sejmour at a uuent ufternoon's
meeting, "as with all o-hur communi
ties, Is that we can get $iu.miu to
help cure a bad condition, but we
enn't get $l fop prevention."
A positive constructive program on
l)io part of the proponed public mo
rals commission will more than jus
tify Its existence. In spite of the bad
sound of Its name. One of the iiioin
fears, by tho way, has suggested that
the word "welfuio" be substituted for
"morals," which Is good constructive
effort at the very outlet.
a social center.
THK sohool as a social center, now
being discussed with fresh vigor,
Is an old subject- That Is. In a
way. It Is old. In another way it
The rural or village school of
twenty or thirty years ago used to
toe u social center In tho broadest
sir-use of tho term. Our mothers and
thu1 ' jff
grandmothers went thero to singing
bchool and spelling matches and our
fnthers and grandfathers went nlso.
They went together, the old tlmo
boys and girls, or. If they didn't go
oget.ei. they came homo that way.
T'-.i'i-e were all kinds of social diver
sions at the little red school houses
of our forefathers.
With the growth of a largo and
complex social nnd educational sys
tem, we have naturally outgrown
this neighborhood habit of making
die school a place whore a wide- di
versity of Interests Is fostored. But
there is now developing In our cities
a commendable tendency to use
school buildings and property for tho
Improvement of tho social life of the

calls attention to a great variety of
uses to which the long-closed school
houses mny bo put. Hero It Is that
wholesome piny may be substituted
for tho harmful recrentlons which
young people pick up on tho streets.
Tho article tells of tho successful
formation of boys' athletic clubs, of
literary societies for women, dnnclnir
clubs for boys nnd girls nnd social nnd
civic organizations where men and
women mny meet and discuss Inter
ests which are vital to themselves.
As the author says, "Districts
where home life Is eliminated and
wholesome recreation unprovided nro
""ding-grounds for reformatories
and prisons. And to look at It from
tho standpoint of tho hnrd-headed
tnxpuer. prisons and reformatories
cost more than playgrounds."
This Is Intelligent reform nnd tho

dance halls and lock up Incorrigible
boys If nothing Is done to provide snfc
and attractive amusement for tho
young peoplo whoso nntural energies
are demanding recrentlon. Tho
"gang" of boy toughs nnd tho crowds
of girls who attend public dnnco halls
are usually those who would mice

If It were offered. The public school,
with Its liberalizing spirit of educa
