The National Americanization Committee, a new'
organization of impractical faddists with headquarters;
in New York City, has asked 150 colleges to take definite. length to which the idea of "preparedness" is carried in
The dispatches tell us that the destruction of men by
the war has caused the thinking men of Germany to look
into the future and consider how the gaps may be filled
most quickly. Here are some of the suggestions serious
ly considered:
Premiums for motherhood, premiums to increase the
willingness to marry, the reduction of the legal age for
marriage, the removal of all bureaucratic legal obstacles
to marriage, measures to make possible marriage for
those who feel they cannot marry, state premiums for
large families, on one side; heavy taxation of bachelors,
old maids, childless couples and those who adhere to the
one or two children system, on the other."
Just how some of these can be worked out cannot be
easily.understood. How can a premium to increase will
ingness to marry, increase marriages when there are not
men enough to go round? How can "a premium for
motherhood" get results when there are none for father
hood? How .can a just tax be laid on old maids, when
there are no men for them to marry?
However, aside from these objections, it shows, the
steps to train men and women, by courses and lectures,: Germany, for even now with the most stupendous war in
to become leaders in Americanization. The association ; all history on her hands, she is planning to increase her

p ace oeiween soup una c ese r . someone exnresseu me hinted at, polygamy may be one of the
idea that all foreigners should be taught to speak Ene-
Ilfch, and the association, like Minerva, leaped fully armed
into life. Here are some of the things it wants:
"We need to be sure that the foreign-speaking men
unarming our railroads, making up our . construction
gangs, filling our ammunition and other factories are
American in their ideals, their loyalties, their regard for
American citizenship. We need to make every foregn
speaking community an American community in its social
ideals and its standards of living. '
"The only way to do these things is to see that the
ways and means of assimilation are available to every
immigrant now living in this country, and that he is in
vited and encouraged to use them. The English language
must be universally taught and used. Naturalization
must be encouraged. Immigrant women must be taught
how to keep the baby well in American climates, must
learn our methods of sanitation, kinds of food, etc., if im
migrant homes are to become American homes and Amer
ican standards of living are to prevail."
As usual with these half-baked associations, they un
dertake to prescribe a remedy without understanding the
disease. Instead of appealing to the colleges to teach the
English language to "the foreign speaking men, manning
our railroads, making up our construction gangs, and fill
ing our ammunition and other factories," would it not be
better to appeal to the railroad managers and the owners
of "our ammunition and other factories," to employ
American labor and pay American wages?
It is not the poor devil of an immigrant that needs
education along these lines, but the greedy American
railroad or factory owners, who import this class of labor
in order to reduce wages.
The individual American who hasn't any business of
his or her own to attend to becomes inbued with the idea
that he or she had better uplift humanity and improve the
race. Then they seek more of their kind, form an assocla-

only in Germany but in Belgium, France and some of the
other countries, or a reversion to primeval conditions
and the legitimatising of that class known in law as
"nullus fillius," whose paternal parents are unknown.
This is one of the things that may follow the war, and
how many new questions are to be born of this titanic
struggle, only the future will disclose.
The state officials who examined into the Peabody fire
in which 22 children lost their lives, reported that "no
body was to blame, and that the children lost their lives
because there were no fire escapes and the doors opened
inward." That unfortunate combination of circum
stances alone was responsible for their deaths.
Probably one of the most deadly effects of the Euro
pean war will be the flood of war stories in the maga
zines, and the greater flood of war plays in the theaters.
In the battle of the diplomats in the Balkan countries,
the Germans as elsewhere showed the best generalship,
and out maneuvered their enemies.

At this time of the year there's scarcely anyone
who does not need Lumber for repair work of some
kind. Fall is here and Winter is almost upon us.
When your house is in good condition it costs less to
heat it. Your stock will be better in a warm stable.
It is economy for you to buy Lumber from us and
fix things up now.
