One of the prettiest tributes W(
have ever read was the editorial ir
the Asheville Citizen a few days ago
touching upon the death of Quentin
Roosevelt. However we may fail tc
agree with Theodore Roosevelt, yet
none can doubt his Americanism or
loyalty. With four sons in the ser

it stands to reason that his love for
America is genuine.

Mrs. Preston's message to the wo

"'Proclaim Liberty throughout ALL
THE LAND unto all the inhabitants
"These words were written about
1490 years before Christ, as part of
the Law of Holiness in the Book of
Leviticus. Our fathers Inscribed them
upon the Liberty Bell which called our
mighty nation into life.
"Today 'all the inhabitants' enjoy
liberty, the Jew and the Gentile, the
rich and the poor, the native and the
alien-born, the weak and the strong.
The old Liberty Bell is silent, for its
voice has been heard 'throughout all
"But Liberty is not safe. It is men
aced along the battle fronts of many
nations, our own among them, and
America requires a new motto for her
old Bell: 'Proclaim liberty through
out ALL LANDS unto all the inhab
itants thereof.' UntU Hberty Is safe
in all lands, it can not be safe in our

"Make Motto Real."
"The Fathers of this Republic, men
of many races, with a common love of
liberty, wrought into law our ancient
motto, thus giving liberty a chance to
enlighten the world.
"Today we, their descendents, are
called upon to make real the new
motto, and thus to give liberty the
undisputed right to bless the world.
"This can be done but only after
heroic struggle and self-sacrifice. A
premature peace would mean failure.
ItSvould be only less disastrous than
complete defeat. Against all tempta
tions to compromise the women of
America should stand firm and united.
'Peace and Safety."
"Victory means peace and safety
for our children; defeat means hu
miliation and practical servitude .for
them; while a negotiated peace, with
the military machine of Prussia un
broken, means that everything in their
lives must be subordinated to the task
of preparing for another .war with
Germany. We can wm now if Amer

The Antediluvian Teacher
The one thing superintendents, prin
cipals and teachers In some schools
hate worse than physical education in
having parents coming around with
grievances or complaints against me
dieval methods. The writer is a pa-,
rent and a doctor and he recently
found it necessary to call on the public,
school principal to learn why no re
cesses were given the children no
outdoor recesses. On the day of this
particular visit the weather was ideal,
though a bit cold. But the ground
was still damp from previous rains.

had played about the yard in the
noon hour while waiting for the bell

has some slight cough or "cold" and
always nursing it. He was a bit flab
bergasted at the suddenness and ve
hemence of our inquiry. He finally ex
plained that there had been no re
cesses for some weeks back because
of bad weather. "Had we allowed a
recess this forenoon, for instance,
many of the children would have got.
ton their feet wet in the yard and
probably their parents would have
complained to, us about it." The same
parents, you see, would have no pos
sible objection to the children getting
their feet wet at the noon hour. This
was carefully pointed out to the prin
cipal. He was also advised that the
school board rules called for outdoor
recess morning and afternoon when
the weather was suitable, and that1 un
less this recess was regularly given It
would be our painful duty to bring a
complaint against the principal, in the
Interest of the health of the children.
No recesses were given for another

ek of fine weather. So we took the
mltter to the superintendent of
scfiools, who, being a fairly human be
i Afr. immediately recognized the pro
priety of the complaint and censured
thl principal in question for his bad
stewardship. After that, recess be
cpne a living institution in that school.
jijUl this trouble is worth while, if a
pbent values the health of his chil
dren. So-called "colds," sore throat,
toftsilitis. adenoids, enlarged tonsils,
aslweli as anemia, nervousness, bed
witting, chorea (St. Vitus' dance), and
mny other conditions of school chil
dren are certainly invited by prolong
ed .confinement in the warm atmos
phere and the strict discipline of the
average Schoolroom. It is up to the
parents to see that a regular fifteen
minutes of recreation, exercise and re
lease from restraint so hard for the
child's naturally active nervous sys-
.1 are lonncommg in every scjuui,

jly when an antediluvian teacher es-
