If AAeiiaan bankets and trust
companies want to loan the allies a
biliioD dollan on British, Freooh and
BuBBian bonds, with tha. stipulation
that the money is to remain in this
oonntiy lor the porobase of farm pro
duotsandwar monitions, we should
worry. We have the goods to sell,
and If the foreign bonds look good to
Amerioan investors, why, we sbonld
worry again. It's op to the allies to .
proteot tbeir oredit in this ooantry.
Ouly last week the Amerioan dollar
was worth from 8 to 10 per oeut above
par. '-'bat is, it was worth from $1.05
to $1.10 in foteign oonotriea. In Eng
land in normal times they give yon a
poood sterling for a five dollar bill.
Last neelt the English poond sterling
was worth only $4. DO or $4.55 In the
United States. In Franoe tbey give
yon five francs for one Amerioan
dollar. Now it takes a early sit franos
in the United States to tny an Amer
ican dollar. Herman money, mea
sured by tbe Amerioan dollar, has
fallen abont 18 per cent as a resnlt of
war oonditioof. Thoa tbe former sit
uation baa been reversed. The Euro
pean ooontries now bring their money
here to bny the Amerioan dollar; we
are no lucger sending onr money
abroad, For many years tbe Europs
nns have bought Amerioan stocks end
tonds because tbsy were sore to get
Ibe int-rost and Dually tbe prinoipal
when due. 'Now onr. Industrial and
railroad bonds are tetter than Euro
pean government bonds, We are no
longer sending American securities to
Europe, and tboss wblob Europe hld
are being sent over bete as collateral
for war loans. Two big railroad cor
porations, tbs Pennsylvania and the
New York Central, have oleaned op
orer a million dollars apieoe In two
weeks by bnyiog baok their bonds and
paying for tbem In pouuds and fraooa
instead of dollars, saving tbe dlfler
euoe in tbe rale oxobange.

Soolal Needa Imperative.
The average country boy and girl
have very little opportunity for real
enjoyment, and have",' as a rulo, a
vague conception of the meaning of
pleasure and recreation. It ia to nil
this void in the lives of country youth
that the rural church has risen to
the necessity of providing entertain
ment as well as Instruction to its
membership among the young. The
children and young people of the
church should meet when religion is
not even mentioned. It has been
found safest for them to meet fre
quently under the direction and care
of the church. To send them Into the
world with no social training exposos
them to grave perils and to try to
keep them out of the world with no
eoclal privileges is Bheer folly. There
le a social nature to both old and
young, but the v oclal requirements of
the young are imperative. The church
must provide directly or Indirectly
some modern equivalent for the husk
ing bee, the quilting bee and the sing
ing schools of the old days. In one
way or another the social instincts
of our young people must have oppor
tunity for expression, which may
tako the form of clubs, parlies, pic
nics or othor forme of amusement.
One thing Is certain, and that Ib that
the church cannot take awny the
dance, the card party and the theater
unless it can offer in its place a sat
isfying substitute In the form of more
pleasing recreation. .
Universal Instinct for Play,
In providing for enjoyment the
church uses one of the greatest meth
ods by which human society baa de
veloped. Association Is never secure
until it is pleasurable; In play the In
stinctive aversion of one person for
another Is overcome and the social
mood la fostered. Flay is the chief
educational agency In rural commun
ities and in the play-day of human
childhood social sympathy and social
habits are evolved. As Individuals
come together In social gatherings,
thnTr viewpoint Is broadened, their
Idonls are lifted and finally they con
stitute a cultured and refined society.
It Ib plain, therefore, that the
church which alms at a perfect so
ciety must use In a refined and ex
alted way the esuentlal factors In
eociil evolution and must avail ItRelf
of the universal instinct for play,
i; the church surrounds Itself with
Boclul functions which appeal to the
young atnnrg Its membership, It will
fill n lr.rjie part of the lamentable
pap rural pleasures and will reap
tha r'..htft reward by promoting a
hi. -her and better type of manhood
