Sir-The Fourth of July is significant In history because the American colonies advanced a stop farther than the Magna Charta in the progress of liberty and declared all men wero born with certain inalienable rights-lifo, liberty and pursuit of happiness. .While the world flows with rivers of blood in the greatest struggle over waged by mnn against the spirit of brute force for permanent guarantee of the higher ideals of Christian civilization, Hells ring, bands play, throats swell with song nddlng stimulus to a nation of 100 million people who are lauded as sponsors of those ideals in the present world cisis-simultaneous with this splendii' outburst of patriotism, the funoral dir^e saddens the hearts of ten millions of its populace. Charred and ghantly remains of innocent negro women anil children driven back into their burning homes at St. Louis are being removed to the morgue where they offer a spectacle thnt rendors the innoculntion of women and children with tubercular germs, the i.iuting down of fruit trees and the filling of wells with garbage araor.'f tho French peasants and many Hun atrocities which we considered hideous as nets of christian charity in comparison therewith. Let us not lose sight of tho fact that the United Stntos is the only country that was with Noro in the burning of human beings alive and that white women now indulge in tiie pastime. It is also well to note that these people's only crime lit that of leaving a section of the states where living conditions have to "Idie Wives," the big feature opens nt the Orplieuni tonight. Three sets of characters are about In commit acts of folly. They nil attend a moving picture theatre and, in a play culled "Life's Mirror" see the results of their proposed courses of action. The three s.'ts of characters are a young girl and her lover on tho verge of an unlawful union, a married couple, rich but drifting apart, and the family of a workingiuan tired of the life of misery in a cheap tenement. The youm; girl and her lover following the n'cl'ir? on th" screen see the folly of o,!:rr\Ing out their previous plans, and instead of the girl be-ins reiiuircd to 1 i -o in shame, a happy marriage is the outcome of the lesson taught them during their stay in the theatre. The two other sets of characters also see, as the story unfolds, the thnt exists in the life of the rich and poor. They leave, the theatre knowing thalfthe hri;;ht side of human existence is p issiblo. in their lives keep the home- tires burning more brightly so that, when the hoys return home, they will find that we have indeed appreciated their sacrifices.
