Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - November 21, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 21, 1918 THE LETHBRTDftte DAn^Y, HERALD PAGE THREE mm rHAT- S0N:;INXAW of PA'S . For a Moment Pa Thougjhr He'd Enjoy Being Sick By Wellington may visit- ENGLAND Madrid, Nov. 21-A rumor was in circulation tonight that Queen Victoria intended to leave Spain* f6'r a visit to Eingland. Queen Victoria is a 'daughter of the, late Prince Henry of .'Battenburg and Princess. Beatrice, a- daughter of the last Queen Victoria of Great Britain. � PRICES DROPPING ParlB, Ifov. 21.-There bns been a notable lowering of prices here in the recent past. The price of grain from North America has dropped nearly 50 per cent, Wool from South Anierlca now costs 270 franca a cubic m^tre, instead of 350 francs, the for-mbr price. ' Tit - Bit�.v f rM People's Forum CommunlcatlonB under this heading inust bear the aignaturea of the writers. THE SOCIAL EVIL . Editor Letlibrldge Herald: Sir,-In as much as I have been criticized by some of our citizen.? for dia-contlnuing my. articles on. the social betterment propaganda, I ain inclosing thl9 letter for publication. I have been reluctant In saying more until I had an abundance of first hand material to present, and I am indeed indebted to the United States government, the Illinois Vigilance Association, the American Social Hygiene As-Bodatlon, the Western Social Hygiene Association, the Oregon Social Hygiene Society, ,the. Alberta Social Service League, the Rev. Hugh Dpbson of Re-gina and several others who have given personal attention to the matter at hand, , God's retribution for unoUastlty is social disease, and its wojikings through the ages hats resulted in the depopulating of. cities and nations, leaving but death and destruction in Its walte, and that, a thousand per cent more than the bloodiest .wars of history. The world, became so sexually unclean in the days of Noah that) it became the duty of Providence, In mercy to the race, to destroy all but eight souls, who were, left .to repop-ulate the earth. In Sodom and Gomorrah there could-not be found five .clean people and those cities were .destroyed. We point to Babylon,' Thfebes,. Tyre, 'Sidon;' and other cities that fell in their lmm,oralityj Let: us now consider America with her-'once Wonderful jpopulAtiony: 'I'refer. to\i'eru-vJinaii-Ceptfal-Am-erican antiquities. TJjere stood A clvllizatiori^that'ban ,had no rival In, this or any other/ age. the mighty .cities of - Palenque'y IJxm'al, Hitla and others, some, of which were seven times the size at the" present San Francisco, ,ftrltb an .-architecture that today, has not been met ^y our modem methods, fell into" decay. Archaeology and scientific analysis proye that,this mighty nation fell a prey to sexual diseases. , As I write I have before me some valuable Information from the eminent Dr. Wot. L. Howard of Massachusetts. He states -that eighty per cent of all sterility in women is caused by social diseases; from this standpoint ire begin to understand the why and whei�-fore of the very low birth rate that maintains today. Let the preaenli rapidly infection continue, and'one generation " may\ depopulate America. In view of this condition the XJ. S. Qovernment sounds the warnins note, with the statement that it is far more serious than German propaganda, pacifist or anarchist' Charles C. Nixon, editor of' fcvery Woman's World, Toronto and C. K. GlarKe, M.L.,LL.D., of the University of Toronto express the same opinion in unequivocal'terms: While It has been known for years that social diseases have been spreid-,lng at an alarming rate, governments little dreamed of the extent of the in-fectli^n until the U. S. draft was'called up. This gave that government.v a, criterion of measurement of,the peoplei that they used unsparingly. I have before me a pamphlet called: "Could the Kaiser Do Worse?" Here the government shows that of the U. S. draftees,subsequent to the first drt^ft, there were 445,000 men with pypliills and estimate that there must hav^ been five times that number with gonorrhea, making a grand total of 2,276,-000 draftees infected in the V. S. army. These ^gures the government unhesitatingly puts up to thestates np the work with a pjinch that has resulted in, that forty-three of the states have now prohibited legalized vice, thirty states .have adopted^ the drastic,llnjunotion and Abatement Law" giving power to e\ery citizens to eliminate ft Ijawdy-house; twenty staieSr are ,ln charge of governipent oj-floere, and tweuty-two'BtateB'::.auv^> SOc. koi of Peps lor Tour coM, Tour couth, btonchillt or uthma. ^1 dninisU ait, toiH 01 Pert C�.,,Totsiita, wfll luyplr ( TENDERS CUNARO rncmor AncHor Donaldson ,.,|'a(Ha�oi �sa,C��i:S�rftcw: klEW YORK BOSTW / MOIITRCW. lo 'LONDON LiVERroOL^GUSCOW BRISTOL UNBXCBUJCO SflilVWB li;* Ml iWarutloM iMaM Wk^raiQsr Or to COMPiWrS'OFP|CE,,S��'Bl�*l FOR THE ERECTION OF A MALE DORMITORY AND DINING HALL, PROVINCIAL ASYLUM.
