Once more a block has been placed
in the way of freeing childhood from
the curse of labor. Federal Judge
James E. Boyd, of North Carolina.
who last year declared the federal
child labor law unconstitutional, has
made the same dicision in regard to
the tax on the products of child labor
In the new revenue law.
His decision need cause no sur
prise. The minds of a good many
people in every state whose children
are exploited seem to work that way.
Naturally, every one who is inter
ested In children as children, and
everyone who has any sane view of
the economic waste of killing the
goose that lays the golden egg, hopes
that this decision may not be sus
tained by the supreme court.
But whether or not the tax is up
held, sooner or later the reform will
come. The public opinion of the
whole world is against the employ
ment of children under 14 years to
the detriment of their health, edu
cation and future usefulness. The
labor charter adopted by the peace
conference is evidence of that.
A few reactionaries may make
such a fuss that they halt for a few
moments the procession of the race
toward its goal. Eventually they are
thrown into the ditch by the road
side. The oncoming tide of forward-looking
humanity is too much
One may be disgusted at the cruel
ty and lack of vision of the people
who are trying to prevent the pass
age of the child labor laws. One
may feel poignant regTet for the
children who will suffer while the
tight is on. But there is no despair
in the situation.
Bucking the universe does not pay.
and even the short-sighted people
will have to find it out sometime.

ing through all human hearts. It
accepts that version no longer. The
flag Is now taken to mean bloodshed,
aud the overturning .by criminal vio
lence of cherished institutions.
There is no national law against
carrying the red flag in this country.
Few states or cities have regulations
against it. And yet almost every
time the red banner appears in an
American city there is trouble for
The public, law or no law, will not
stand for it. Let it appear at the
head of a procession, and almost in
eviubly it is snatched from the
hands of its bearer and the marchers
are subjected to rough treatment.
Usually, to be sure, tbey themselves
start the disturbance, fry their inso
lence or violence. But even a quiet
proceesion of "Reds" Is intolerable
to most American communities. This
was shown with striking force In the
May day riots.
Why has this traditional symbol
of socialism, once endured without
a murmur, become to most citizens
as irritating as a red rag to s bull?
It is because the significance of the
flag has changed. The public used
to accept, even though dubiously, the
socialist explanation that it meant
