Fflr Hearing Must Be Granted.
Calling these people bolshevists
doesn't sllence them nor solve the
problem? SucrT tactics Irritate and
deepen the unrest. Their grievance
must be given a fair, patient heating.
Their attitude of mind must be reck reckoned
oned reckoned with if we hope to get h&cfc to
normal living. I have herd some ay
that these people must be given to un
derstand that they must worft car
starve. No law or government in the
world is powerful enough to compel
people to work. This Is particularly
true of the people today. To think of
using force is foolish, suicidal.
We have had enough of force during
the last four years and the farther we
get away from the idea of beating one
another into submission the better eff
we ail shall be. The present unrest is
positively dangerous. It Isn't like any
unrest we have ever had before. It is
the restlessness of human beings who
have been face to face with death. We
need a lot of calmness and common
sense. By kindly conference we must
try to understand each other, and by
just compromise help each other. Of
one thing I am sure, and that is. If an
-effort is made to use blind, brute force
on the working people of the world,
the present unrest will be set In mo motion,

The plain, open road back to happi happiness
ness happiness is co-operation. If we stop for a
moment and realize what we have been
through, and the changes that have
come upon us while we were going
through it. we will find getting to together
gether together easy. Unrest blocks the road.
It fetters the will to work. We must
face the truth, and the sooner we do,
the better The world is broke. The
war has bankrupted Europe. One
thing, and one thing only, will bring us
back to sane, normal living. It is work.
Sympathy and understanding will do
more to secure peace, stimulate work,
than defiance, challenge and threats.
A normal world is one in which men
live and work together in peacewhere
all men have a chance to be happy.
This means an interest in work, a joy
in working living to work, rather
than working to live. Men must have
food, clean wholesome food, and
enough of it to do their work without
exhaustion. Men must have clothes.
Not only the quantity and quality nec necessary

weather, but clothes that satisfy the

respect. self-respect. Men without them are less
normal .and moral.
All Need a Playtime.
There must be a time between the
end of the day and the beginning of
sleep in which men can know and en enjoy
joy enjoy their families. The man who is so
nsed up by his day's work that he falls
asleep at his supper table isn't play playing
ing playing fair with his wife and children,
and his employer isn't playing fair
with him. All men are boys, even aft after
er after they have gray hair. This quality
is probably the finest and best
in them. They need a playtime, a recre recreation
ation recreation time. They lose something and
the world loses' more when they do
not get It. It is not enough that bodies
are fed, minds must not be starved.
Light Is the right of every human be being
ing being with eyes. Education Is light. The
human race must have light. None of
us were intended to live in darkness.
Children are entitled to a school time,
a jump-the-rope time, a top time, a
play time. A child who enters manhood
or womanhood without ever having
known a childhood goes through life
with something missing, something
lost. The creed of the changed world
Is that while the world doesn't owe
anyone a living. It is obligated to give
every human being a chance to make a
decent living. The new commandment
Is that this chance must be given.
I foundthese thoughts planted in
the unrest In Europe. They are strong strongly,
ly, strongly, deeply rooted in the consciousness
of the people. They are growing. Men
and women are gardening, cultivating,
protecting these ideas. Any effort to
uproot or destroy these flowering
thoughts will be resented and fought
by the gardeners. They are not weed
thoughts they are the blooms of hope
and they belong to the poor. They will
fight and die before they will see these
hope growths trampled under foot.
This Is the only garden they have. The
blood of the dead fertilized it. The
living care for it.

Franklin performance is showing more motorists every day that shock absorbers, radiator thermo thermometers
meters thermometers and anti-freeze mixtures are crutches which thny can thiow svay when they buy a Franklin Car.
The Franklin needs none of these accessories because it is light, flexible and direct air cooled..
Franklin owner's records show that with the pound of heavy, rigid weight eliminated, blowouts are
almost unknown and punctures average only one in every 4141 miles.
Naturally, a car constructed on such a principle costs less to run and to keep in running condition.
Just how much less is a revelation to those unfamiliar with Franklin ewnet's records:
20 miles to the gallon of gasoline.
12,5000 miles to the set of tires.
50 per cent slower yearly depreciation.
