If this graphic- presentment serves no other purpose, its message
for universal peace marks it of great importance. Morally and ed
ucationally it establishes the futility of armed conflict. A member
of the senate of the United States expressed the foregoing senti
ment. "Anyone contemplating war should see this picture," added an
other senator. "I sincerely brieve it will do more to deter people
from engaging In war than a lytliiug written or spoken on the sub
ject in years."
- Oreat care has been taken not to glorify' buttle. -Even the music
stops in its motiff of glorification to sound tho note of terror and
desolation, which is the real truth of war.
Armies seldom settle disputed questions of state. T3ut, where they
accomplish this much, in the wake of conflict arise newer and
more terrible questions. But for the hatreds engendered in the
civil war, the suffering of the reconstruction period would never
have been known.

The Slave ProblemThe
Birth of A Nation
Covers It All
The slave trade in America and slav
ery as it existed prior to the war is ex
emplified in "The Birth of a Nation,"
u. w. liritfitn's pictorial and musical
elaboration of Thomas Dixon's "The
Clansman," and "The Leopard's
This phase of political conditions is
traced strikingly from the importation
of the first slaves to the troubles that
grew out of their freedom and conse
quent enfranchisement and subsequent
tribulations of the south under carpet
As a sort of prologue to the drama,
the arrival of the first "cargo" of
slaves is presented with historic fidel
ity. From this the scene changes to
ante bellum days, depicting the condi
tion of the negro in the south nt that
time. Then comes the turmoil of war,

nor in the capital of South Carolina
and the Ku Klux Klun riding through
the country side to rescnotheir women
and preserve their traditions.
