Why should people In* inquiring a
bout what the next war will foe fought
over? - The next war will Ik* fought
over the very same Causes thai past
wars were—greed for gain—it may foe
for other men's maids, or money, or
honors, hut the basis of war will
certainly be wn account of the fact
that justice rs not being done.
Men do not likelUfgo to war, be
cause it is the most -dangerous thing
they can do, and also the hardest
thing they can engage in; two things
thajk men do not like, danger and
hardship. Yet they can be, driven by
hullabaloo into a spirit of frenzy,
which they call bravery, and go out
to fight and kilL their fellow crea
tures. 1 After they have done it once,
they are further from peace than
when they began.
Everybody wilui survived Agreed
that the Civil War was foolish. Of
course, those poor fellows who bled
and died could not tell the tale. The
same may foe 4aid of the World War.
Nobody hated the Germans except
as they were enraged by propaganda.
Do the four million American sol-
diers want to go to war agaiti in
their day? If not themselves, do
they want their boyS to go; and if
they are anxious that their sons be
spared the horrors of hatred and war,

The Next War
then how do they feel about their
grand sons?
It begins to look like th 6 folks are
learning sense enough not to rush in
to war; and with the advancement of
Christianity, the men of the. future
are going to let the dollars of the
moguls be sacrinccd rather than the
blood their own veins.
t'p to now. the rank and file, gen
erally the poor, of a nation have
fought the wars to defend the un
holy and dishonest investments of the
rich. Such was the case in the Civil
War. The rich demanded that the
flower of the land Should be slain to
establish the right of the rich to own
an act in itself as unright
eous as the war that tried to defend
it., v' . ,
China is suffering today on account
of the three self-glorified nations, Ja
pan, England, and the Unified States,
pillaging her. Not the |>eople of the
United States, if you please, are ben
efiting, but a few rich »>il comjranies
and a few rich tobacco companies.
The same condition applies in-the
Pan-American States, where people"
are trying to establish a Republic
but are denied the right to hold an
election on account of an old treaty
with the United States, which places
the elective |xiwer in the hands of
the select, and we furnish the rifles
N. •
to thwart the will of tne people and
[>ermit only those who stand in with
monopolistic exploiters of that coun
try to hold office. Under this treaty
no election can ever. be held by the
pftpulace without their being classed j
as rebels. Yet we maintain the
treaty with guns, denying those peo
ple a privilege we cherish so much.j
Henry Ford's Contribution
ford startled the world ih»d shook g
the walls of Wall, Street when he an
nounced the priqes of the new Ford
car Thursday. The price proved to
be a reform greater than the remodel
ing of the car. - _
caused a raze for automobile stocks.
A reform in prices comes as no sur
prise to those who have studied Ford
methods, who has always shown
good fighting blood. Now, his new
model is not the stone that "hits his
competitors the hardest, but the
price he sells it for. •
Motor dividends will certainly be
smaller, lor a few years, at least.
Ford is making his greatest con
tribution to the public in selling a
manufacturing centers. This has | car at a reasonable price.
It is a well-known fact that auto
mobile builders have the
life out. of the country by charging
too much for cars, sweeping the fi
nances of the country into a few.

hink About
! w\s a stranger in a small town last
! week 1 asked to be directed to a pub
lic library. I was promptly informed
that no such thing existed in the
town. If the citizens of that town
' did not know the value of books,
there would be'some excuse for their
' lack of foresight. But they know.
The trouble is they don't think.
There are today in this country of
ours well educated men and women
I who never had an opportunity to go
ito school. They were educated
( through books secured from public
libraries. Michael Lynch, who re
cently died in New York, was con
sidered one of the best 'judges of
literature in the country. Yet in
I 1905 his education was meager, and
he had to rely upon his trade as plas
terer for his living. He-came to New
1 Orleans and while walking on Voy
! I
dras Street came to a book store. He
! picked up a book and became inter
ested. Later he bought the book
store. From then on he spent most
of his time reading. He would not
lay down a book reading even to wait
on a customer. They had to find

To the editor:—"Gratitude,is a rare
virtue; the fairest flower of the

completion or the crowning of evefy
performance." And "Only one returned
to Rive thanks." What doe# the last
Thursday in November mean to the
"nine"? Thanksgiving is a mere by
word and the iay in itself only gives
them one more chance ot ignore God's
blessings. Or it gives them the chance
to acknowledge God's blessings and v
show their appreciation of Church and
State. Many "who profess and call
themselves Christians" and talk of pa
triotism. seek out some form of enter
tafnment, ignoring the church's adr
monition and the civil authorities proc
lamation to give corporate thanks to
God for the blessings bestowed in the
