have the right to deride how many
children they will have.
But it is well that understand­
ing of birth control has been post­
poned. It might have prevented
the arrival of Napoleon and Car­

vented the arrival of Caruso, a
nineteenth child.
Mrs. Peabody, head of the Wo­

men are not only talking and pray­
ing. but working to retain prohibi­
tion. and see that is enforced.”
They need not work or pray to
keep prohibition in the Constitu­
tion; nothing can get it out.
As for enforcement, there is
room for much working and pray­
ing in that direction.
