Certain that Some Sort of a Change
is Necessary at the Indus-
trial School
Twenty-two of the girl inmates of
the industrial school are locked up in
the county jail. They are unanimous
in saying that they will stay there un until
til until Silver Springs freezes or the pres present
ent present superintenden leaves.
After leaving the school Tuesday
night, they scattered all over the ad adjoining

morning in a disreputable house five
miles out in the woods, and be it said I
to the credit of the woman that keeps
the place that she protected as well
as sheltered them. They came to
town quietly with Deputy Grubbs, not
making him any trouble. I
In company with Deputy Sheriff
Grubbs, a Star reporter went to thw
jail about noon. The girls are in the
woman's quarter of the jail. It is well
lighted and well ventilated and is not
uncomfortable for a jail. It rather
hurts a man's feelings to see a bunch
of girls locked up in it.
The girls are not a tough-looking
lot at all. They seemed mighty
glad to see Mr. Grubbs and the re reporter,
porter, reporter, and almost wore off the let letter's
ter's letter's only good ear in telling him
their troubles.
They declared that they were badly
treated by the superintendent, but
professed love for Misses Partridge
and Davis, the two teachers who have
just quit. ... v
They made no complaint of their
Quarters or treatment,, but were evi
dently having a 'rather bleak time of
it. so the Star man supplied them
with soda water and crackers, sta
tionery and reading matter. Mr.
Chalker is kind to them, but a jail-Is
a jail, and he has to keep them locked
up and can only give them jail fare",
which several of them declared they
couldn't eat.
The reporter asked Mr. Chalker if
lunches could be sent to them, and he
replied they could, so the members of
the Woman's Club will prepare some
eood things for them this afternoon.
Public sentiment is considerably
wroueht ud over the idea of these
girlsi some of them mere children, be
ing in jail. There is, however, no
other place for them, unless they wil
promise to stay at the school- The
sheriff might let them go into private
homes, but if he did so he would do r
at his own risk.
It is evident that some change is
nenessarv at the school. The Star
has never joined in criticism of Mrs
Range. It has always been aware that
she had a most difficult position to
fill. It looks to us like it is impossible
for her to fill it under present condi
tions. The sentiment in Ocala is that
the state board make different ar
rangements or else move the school

bership membership of the House to live up to its
convictions and the expressed will of
the people of the country.
Congressman Clark, who boasts
that he has not a "wet" spot in his
district, offered this .amendment to
the bill:
"Provided, That after thesjpassage
of this act it shall be unlawlul dur during
ing during the continuance of the existing
war for any person, firm or corpora
tion in the United States to use any
corn, wheat, barley, oats, rice or other
grain or foodstuff in the manufacture

$1000 or more than S5000 or by im
prisonment for not less than six
months or more than three years, or
by both such fine and imprisonment,
in the discretion of the court.
When this amendment was chal challenged

strong, patriotic speech. "We are pro proposing
posing proposing by this legislation," he said,
"to loan farmers money with which

am seeking to amend this so as to

from these seeds. The very highest

ordinary extraordinary procedure is justifiable on
account of extraordinary conditions.
We certainly have a right to say that
the money shall be expended in the
right direction and that the food pro products

proper channels for use.
"There is a demand from all over
the country for this legislation during
the war. We are cut down to 1
pounds of flour a week for each indi individual,

of these food products are rotting in
the distilleries and breweries."
When questioned by Representative

When Representative Dyer asked if
Congressman Clark had not voted to
give this power to the president, the
Florida member said: "I have voted

amendment would prevent the mak making

after the passage of the act. He
argued that the "underlying, funda-
mental object of this legislation is to
conserve foodstuffs of the land for
the benefit of the army and navy and
the people at large." He said that
here was a place where the greatest
conservation possible can be effected,
and that therefore it was entirely in
order to offer any amendment that
looks to food conservation.
In an eloquent, patriotic peroration
which was frequently interrupted by
applause, Congressman Clark said:
"We have differed among ourselves,

aucn a means is offered through the
medium of war savings and thrift

25 cents obtained by the thrift and

1 The Star is sorry for bovs and cirls
who are sent to reform schools. And
it is sorry for them not on the basis
of sentiment but on that of common
sense. Most of them are children who
would be good if they had been
brought up in good homes with tiro
per v surroundings. There is a great
acter, but there is" not so much dif.
f erence in the averaee- character of
normal people. Environment has far
more to do with building character
than character has with shaninGr the
course' of people's lives. Most of the
cniidren sent to, reform f. schools are
the children of neoDle who are either
unable or unwilling to give their, boys
anq, gins proper training. Mostly for
the former reason. A or in our bic
cities are millions of families who, in
the struggle 'to keep the wolf from
the door are simply unable to protect
tneir emidren irom temptation. A few
months, not to say years, on the
streets of any city or moderate sized
town will teach a child more wicked
ness than it will unlearn in a life
time. Then when the child goes to a
reform school", 'it1 must" Iearri' to he-
have as well as the child frdm a good
home, without the basis of good be behavior
havior behavior that a good home onlv can
teach. And they have i not the help extended on everv hand tn tho
more fortunate children. Ne matter
how kind their custodians may "be,
they are to a certain extent jailers,
ana it is human nature to try to
break the rules" and escane"" from anv
place of' even the most nominal con-
hnement Of course, it is to the in
terest of the children to obev the
rules and help the state in its efforts
to rebuild their characters, but they
do not understand this ; and we can-w
not blanie' them when we remember
how many "children with every" oppor opportunity
tunity opportunity andf inducement to go right are
not able to understand. Also, we are
sorry" for those wno have' such chil children
dren children in charge. Popular sentiment is
against them, and they are generally
considered as more or less brutal. The
public but dimlv understands the dif.
ficulty they have to contend with.

Bones of Early People of Japan Show
They Were Six to Seven Feet
In Height.
Fifteen human skeletons were unearthed-
In the province of Kawachi,
near Osaka. This is considered the
birthplace of Japanese civilization. Of
the .relics of the. Japanese stone ; age,
discovered by Professor Okushi, nine
of the skeletons were In perfect preser
vation, all bones being Intact East and
West News. says. It rarely happens.
according to scientific records, that so
many, perfect skeletons are discovered
In one place.
Among Indications that neonle of
that period lived on uncooked food, Is
the fact that upper and lower teeth
are evenly, worn down.: Decayed teeth
are not found.. The bony structure of
the skeletons are massive; shin bones.
In most cases, are somewhat flat. Some
of these skeletons stand : seven feet
high ; even shorter ones are over six
feet I Skeletons were found In a lying
position, with knees drawn ud. With-
out doubt, these people belonged to
the stone ..age In. Japan 30.000 vears
ago,' atT leastr
'While making the excavation, stone'
Implements, earthenware and two cop
per arrowheads were found. Two white
jade 'earrings were discovered which
may be, of Chinese origin, and of a
much later period It is thought this
find may establish a link between the
stone and' bronze ages In prehistoric
Japan. Archeologlsts hold that it
