MR. M SWINEY'S TIGHT PLACE
It is difficult at this distance to
size up the case of Mr. MacSwiney,
the lord mayor of Cork, who decided
to commit suicide by starvation rath
er than undergo a two year sentence
in an English prison.
The Irish mayor .could not be near

had been living in a third class
boarding house, and getting late to
his meals every day. And yet he
More than that one day he is re
ported to have rallied and to have
passed a good night and the next
day to be dying.
Every day when the Associated
Press wires close we are certain we
are going to find Mr. MacSwiney
dead the next morning, and the first
thing we do when we come down now
is to ask the telegraph operator how
Mr. MacSwiney is. and we always get
one of two answers he is improved,
or near death's door.
Suspicious persons insist that Mac
Swiney Is taking secret nourishment.
We don't believe this. We don't be

But there is one thing certain, if
MacSwiney Is going to get the British
government to release him before his

It may be the purpose of the gov

Just knew whether or not the Bri

THE MAKING OF MEN.
Are the children of today being
consigned to pl&ces of littleness?
Will the efforts being made in some
quarters to destroy American ideals,
and enthrone radicalism, affect their
thinking and their lives?
These boys and girls have a right
to the best; the best homes, the best
educational advantages, the best mor
al training, the best social atmos
phere, the best civilization.
They not only have a right to be
born well, but to be reared well, to be
trained well, both In their thinking
and In their actingj
aiany a Doy starts uie with a
handicap too great for him to over
come and after a period of struggle
against seeming Insurmountable dif
ficulties he submits to the inevita
ble and sinks into the commonplace.
This i3 a tragedy.
It is tragic because the poor fel
low seems to be but a flicker of life
in the midst of Intangible forces
over which he has no control and all
of which seems to be conspiring to
thwart hlf. deevlopment.
It ought not to be so.
Civilization owes the coming gen
eration the proper environment in
which to live and the proper train
ing and equipment for life.
The making of the men of the fu
ture is in the hands of the men and
women whose hands now guide the
movements of civilization. It is
theirs to organize and direct the
forces which imping upon the lives
of the rising generation so that these
forces will make for and not against
There can be no civilization
worthy the name that is not based
on education and culture.
But the growing life needs some
thing more than, intellectual train
ing, it needs that which religion has,
a heritage of ideals, expressed in the
eloquence of the soul and enshrined
in great lives.
"Religion alone can give the su!Ti
clent motive, spiritual motive, the
motive of self-giving love and sacri
ficial service, the motive that has
moved every great soul throughout
all the ages.
Character grows in the soil of hu
man conditions. What we are, does
not depend on what we wish we
might be. but on what we are set in
to, our social, physical and moral en
vironment. Grapes are not grown
on thistles, or water lillies on asphelt.

right type grow in an environment of
ignorance, physical squalor, or moral

mocracy, was a slogan which mar

important than any system of gov

Standards of life and living are vital.
A bench does not need atmosphere.
but a boy does. It is -not the air he
breathes alone that enables him to
live, the soul within him must inhale
the breath of heaven. Aspirations,
ideals, moral standards, spiritual im
pulses, hopes and beliefs, all. are

Progress is not inherent in the
race, it Is an achievement. The ten
dency Is to retrogress. Each gener
ation must fight its way to the goal
of success. The achievements of the
past, the benefits of an advanced civ
ilization, all facilities for education
and established ideals in morals are
helps but not guarantees of a higher
type of life.
It is just here that the coming
generation encounters its greatest
The heritage which weighs the
heaviest is social. There is not much
difference in the brain-weight of
boys, but there is a tremendous dif
ference in their social heritage.
One boy has a social heritage
where every outlook on life is pessi
mistic and discouraging. The fath
er has narrow and cramped concept
tions. He is little in his opinion,
pessimistic in his attitude, bolshevis
tic in his currents of thoughts. He
has soured on the world and has
stewed for years in his own vinegar
until he is vitriolic. Around the
fireside he talks about the inequality
of things, pours out his disfigured
feelings and creates an atmosphere
destructive to every budding hope in
the minds of his children.
Such a home atmosphere is a han
dicap to any boy.
There is another social heritage
which is also a handicap, it is the
heritage of extravagance and dissi
pation, unbridled self-gratification
and mental oscilation.
There is but one salvation for the
rising generation, and that is re
ligion. Where the atmosphere is
sweetened by prayer and Godliness
in the daily life the souls of boys and
girls flower into beauty.-
