What Are the Demands of the Day?
What constitutes the demands of
the day would appear to be of great
importance to everybody, since we all
have daily needs.
» We have been taught about supply
and demand for centuries. Yet we
rppear not to be able to know what
we most need. We see each daily
newspaper full of offerings of stocks,
bonds, and other investments, past,
j.resent, and future. We find the
prices of bacon, beaas, and potatoes
in all the str.all newspapers.
Of course, all the speculators 1 rush,
to bond prices as soon as the paper
comes; while th impoverished house
wife is forced to select a list of the
cheapest groceries catalogued so the
small allowance will satisfy the ac
tual needs.
But there is apparently very little
demund for law and order; because
men who call themselves good and.
lawful men, ranging- all the way from
the street sweeper to the'judge on
tlie bench, are constantly and know
ingly breaking our l: w . Of course,
it does not totally break down society
to break- a law occasionally. The
most serious part is that many 'of
those who break the laws do not seem
to have the power to appreciate the
gravity of such acts. Therefore, so
ciety is in danger when it is being
undermined by men with such a low
vision.
There is not-as much demand for
tiuth as there-once was, and it" seems
to be taught less than in former
days, when people respected promises
with sacredness.
There is not such a strong demand
for good morals as there used to be;
in fact, the demand is so weak that
the word "morals" does not even ap
pear in the curb market quotations.
They even say that a mother does not
ask oftener than once a year whether
the fellow who hauls her daughter
around has any moral backing or gen
tie manly bearing or not. Most of
them don't ask about his family his
tory. The things that do count more
than ever before are has he a car or
a Ford; can he dance; has he got
money? The fact is the average
mo'her is more concerned about the
social things than about the honor

I features of the fellow her daughtei
I associates with.
I While people generally would like
j to see right prevail, they are making
i no demand whatever to bring It a
| bout"; and if they say anything aftout
| i£, it is generally nothing more than
to criticize others for not bringing
s\bout the better conditions.
Things Would be much better, even
in WiUiamston, if every man who
calls himself a good citizen would
i bide by the laws himself and then
do all possible to make all other peo
ple do the same, and no man attempt
to live OH the weaknesses of others.
Without mentioning in detail, and
speaking in a general way, we sug
gest that if 200 WiUiamston women,
who claim to be greatly- interested in
their children, would coma together
end map oat the safest road proper
for them to walk in and then alto
gether help to eurrv out their regula-
C
lions, it would go a long way toward
safeguarding their daughters from
the fateful coil uf libertines.
We will not have a satisfactory
code of morals until more folks de
rr.and a higher moral line and draw
that line fine enough to exclude all
the questionable#. We will never en
force the law until more people help
to enforce them. I»ts of folks fail to
help enforce by bearing false wit
ness; others by disregarding the
jurors' oaths, and in many other
ways.
We will not be an ideal people un
til more folks work for and fewer
people beat .their livings.
It would be fine to see all the falsi
fiers, all of the robbers—either by
usury, short weights, tinder grades,
night breaking, or otherwise —ostra-
cised, and then put with them the
bootleggers, the moonshiners, the
!\dulterers, the murderers, and all oth
er law breakers, and ostracise the
whole gang. Then we would have two
distinct standards, the respectable
and the disrespectaible.
