FROM SENATOR FLETCHER
Corrects the Rather Loose Account of
His Policy Given By Some
Washington, April 10, 1918.
Editor: Please allow me to correct
an error into which you have been led
by some rather loose comment in
some newspapers about my attitude
on the bill to bring those who have
reached 21 years of age since June
5th, 1917, within the provisions of
the Selective Service Regulations.
On Tuesday, March 26th, the Sen Senate
ate Senate had under consideration S. J. res resolution
olution resolution 124, "providing for the regis registration
tration registration for military service of all
male persons, citizens of the United
States or residing in the United
States, who have since the 5th day of
June, 1917, and on or before the day
set for the registration by proclama proclamation
tion proclamation by the President, attained the
age of 21 years, in accordance with
such rules and regulations as the
President may prescribe under the
terms of the Act approved May 18tht
1917." etc. ;
It was very important that the res resolution
olution resolution pass without any delay what whatever,
ever, whatever, because we should proceed im immediately
mediately immediately with the registration and
draft. There was no opposition of
any consequence to the resolution." it
would have been disposed of in five
minutes standing alone. Senator
New had offered an amendment pro providing
viding providing for universal training and ser service
vice service the training to begin at 19 years
of age and the service to begin, at 21.
That brought on discussion.
, I desired to have the resolution
passed and have the subject covered
by the amendment presented in some
other form or on its own merits at
some other tme. I arose to appeal
to Senator New to withdraw his
cmendmsnt in order that we might
promptly adopt the resolution. In
support of my contention that the res
olution demand immediate action.
whereas the subject covered by his
amendment could woit, I said that we
needed men right now, and under his
r.rAendment the men included in it
would net be available for two years
to six months the earliest and old oldest
est oldest sometime after six months, and
others, now nineteen, after two years.
None of them could be registered and
available until after training of not
less than six months each year. I
pointed out that objection would be
urged that boys 19 years f age should
not be taken from the farms and the
industries six months each year in
order to prepare them for service as
far off as two years hence. I then
said our great, need is present and
immediate, and we ought to get in the
men now available without, a min minute's
ute's minute's delay that the story of the war
may be larsrely told in six months.
Extract from Congressional Record
of March 26th, 1918:
, "Mr. Fletcher: Mr. President, I pre presume
sume presume it is useless, but I most sincere sincerely
ly sincerely wish the senator from Indiana
(Mr. New) would withdraw his
amendment and let us proceed with
this joint resolution. It is a very im important
portant important measure. Everything is de-'
J pending now upon this legislation,
hoys who are brought into training
must continue this training for two
years before they can register and
be available as part of the army. This
war, in all probability, will end very
much within that time. In fact, mv
own judgment is that the story will
be told within the next six months:
and this amendment does not bear
one particle upon the conduct of the

We find in the "Journal of the
American Medical Association" an
article under the head of "The Ground
Glas3 Obsession," the writer of which,
evidently a competent physician,
seems to be skeptical about the num numerous
erous numerous reports of ground glass being
found in food, which are afloat in all
parts of the country. The writer says
that glass to be concealed in sugar oi
flour would have to be very finely
ground, and if finely ground it would
be harmless. An experienced physic physician
ian physician of our acquaintance informs us
that several years ago he experiment experimented
ed experimented on a dog by feeding it ground
glass, and that it did the animal no
harm. We have seen a good many
rumors of ground glass in food late lately,
ly, lately, but it is significant that so far
there has been no report of anyone
dying from that cause. In some of
the substitutes being used for wheat
flour now there is more or less grit,
and a nervous person finding it in
his mouth might believe it was glass.
And we note that in the stories in the
Tampa papers about the glass scare
in that city, some people exhibited to
the authorities broken glass that
looked very much like they had put it
in the food themselves. Last, but not
least, owing to having often drank
out of bottles that we were in a hurry
to break into, and when there was no
corkscrew handy, we must have swal swallowed
lowed swallowed a pound or two of broken glass
ourself with no harm that we were
ever able to note. So let the ground
glass scare subside until it has some
more tangible evidence. :x

They owe it not only to their clerks,

war weighs as heavy on the clerks as

on many, for with a few individual
exceptions there has been no increase
in their wages, while they share with
everybody else the increase iri prices.
They work much longer hours than
mechanics, and do not receive any anywhere
where anywhere near mechanics' pay. So it is
simple justice to let them have their
weekly half -holiday six weeks sooner
than usual. As we have said several
years in succession, there is no good
reason why all our stores should not
close every Thursday afternoon. The
reasons advanced by some of the pro proprietors

The armchair strategists who insist
that the British army hasn't any gen

in this war anyhow, might read the
account of the Mesopotamian cam

truth probably is that an armchaii
strategist would not know a general
if he saw him. This war is so vast
that many generals of high merit,
conducting subordiate operations that
are bigger than many former wars
that are landmarks in history, are not
known to any but their own higher
We are not worried about the great
battle on the western front and we
have no advice to offer to the generals

France. In our opinion, they know a
great deal better what to do than
anybody over on this side knows. The
Germans made tremendous prepara

is not wonderful that they are gain gaining

more jwonderful that their success has
not been greater. We do not believe
they will break thru to Paris or the

throwing away lives and ammunition.

PRESIDENT, NEW YORK LIFE INSURANCEhCO.
HY do you save to build a home? It is
usually cheaper to pay rent.
Why do you plan to give your children

dends dividends from that?
Why do you pay fire insurance premiums and life
insurance premiums? You personally will get little
if any thing from that.
Why do you call the doctor quickly if the children
are ailing? You don't stop to-think whether you
can afford it. Do you?
None of these expenditures are what we call good
investments. They don't pay in money, yet all pay
the finest of dividends.
Liberty Bonds represent the home, the school, the
children; they represent all the great deeds of oar
fathers and grandfathers; they represent Bunker
Hill and Yorktown and Gettysburg; they represent
the blessed freedom under which we all live, they
also represent the ORDER that makes freedom
They represent the boys "over there;" they represent
devasted Belgium and homeless Serbia and murcfer murcfer-ed
ed murcfer-ed Armenia;
They are the defence that shall keep from our shores the monster criminals
who outraged the women of Belgium and Northern France and made the
They represent the strength that shall restore Belgium and rebuild France
and avenge Serbia;
They are the voice of those who are too young or too old or too weak to
tight; they are the sword of the women and thecannon of the children; they
are the voice of free people calling to cruelly wronged, freedom-loved men
and bringing them succor.
Buy them? Of course you will buy them. You'll
borrow to buy them.
You don't have to be urged, You would be ashamed to go home to your
children if you did not buy them.
Tfte rate of interest is important but not of first importance. They would
pay, they would appeal to you, if ihey bore no interest whatever.
Vdd to the rate of interest the dividends they pay in self interest, in safety,

receive from any other thing that you own.
They will never become "scraps ot paper."

which about half the population were
Friends, two brothers. John and Jo Joseph,
seph, Joseph, shared a farm that adjoined the
property of Sarah, a spinster In early
middle life. Both brothers In their
youth had been obvious suitors for
Sarah's hand ; but they were slow and
diffident, and neither ever reached the
point of proposing. Then an enter enterprising
prising enterprising and audacious young woman,
who belonged to "the world's people,
somehow extracted a proposal from
Joseph or dispensed with one and
married him. After several years of
matrimony she died, leaving him with
two little girls. As soon as propriety
permitted he betook himself to his
spinster neighbor's, and. according to
local tradition, spoke thus:
"It Is borne In upon me. Sarah, that
thee would make an excellent wife."
"I have no leading to contradict
thee. Joseph, replied the lady de demurely.

"Thy judgment Is to be respected.
"Thy housekeeping Is well esteemed,
Sarah. The women say there Is no
batter housekeeper In the place.
"I am assured thee would not listen
to light gossip, Joseph.
"Then. Sarah, will thee marry me?
, "Nay. Joseph. I am not moved to
consent. But thee may repeat thy
kind words about me to thy brother
John if thee thinks best
"So that thee will enter the family,
Sarah, and care for the household, I

I have no further Inclination toward

"Whether my reasons are foolish or
no, Joseph, I will only come If I am

It was by the door called John that

and to order wisely a double family.

relief, and rain we did not get. Every

on bended knees by his little white bed
asked God; "Please don't forget to

The kaiser called the devil up
On the telephone one day.
The girl at central listened to
All they had to say.
"Hello," she heard -the kaiser's voice,
"Is old man Satan home?
Just tell him this is Kaiser Bill
That wants him on the phone.
The devil said, "Hello" to Bill,
And Bill said, "How are you?
I'm running here a hell on earth,
So tell me what to do."
"What can I do?" the devil said,
"My dear old Kaiser. Bill,
If there's a thing that I can do
To help you, I surely will."
The kaiser said, "Now, listen,
And I will try to tell
The way I am running
On earth a modern hell.
"I've saved for this for many years,
And I've started out to kill,
That it will be a modern job,.
You leave to Kaiser Bill.
"My army went thru Belgium,
Shooting women and children down,
We tore up all her country,
And blew up all her towns.
"My Zepps dropped bombs on cities,
Killing both old and young;
And those the Zeppelins didn't get
Were taken out and hung.
"I started out for Paris
With the aid of poisonous gas,
The Belgiums, damn 'em, stopped us,
And would not let us pass,
"My submarines are devils,
Why, you should see them fight;
They go sneaking thru the seas,
And sink a ship at sight.
"I was running things to suit me,
Till a year or so ago,
When a man named Woodrow Wilson
Wrote me to go more slow.
"He said to) me, 'Dear William,
We don't want to make you sore,
So be sure to tell your-U-boats
To sink our ships no more."
"I did not listen to him,
And he's coming after me,
With a million Yankee soldiers
From their homes across the sea.
"Now that's why I called you, Satan,
For I want advice from you,'
I knew that you would tell me
Just what I ought to do."
"My dear old Kaiser William,
There's not much for me to tell
For the Yanks will make it hotter
Than I can for you in hell.
"Ive been a mean old devil,
But not half as mean as you,
And the minute that you get here,
I will give my job to you.
"IH be ready for your coming,
And I'll keep the fires all bright,
And I'll have the rooms all ready,
When the Yanks begin to fight.
"For the boys in blue will get you;
I have nothing more to tell, ;
Hang up the phone, and get your hat
And meet me here in hell."
