turn out to h poor, foolish llttla girl
aping tha worst follies of the grown-ofl
women of today,
A few evenlna ago I Mod In III

Hnfor ma came two alrange figure, and

What ar th mother and fthr
thinking about to prmlt thl traveaty,
this unholy parody of womanhood? If
they hava lost control of their children,
both they and th children wilt pay a

do. Hoineone muat call a halt,
Wa hava to hava children, I appeal
to tha llttl girl and boy themaalve.
Why not go on a queat for youth? H
la th most beautiful thing In th world.
You ran never hav It again. Horn
day you may actually to driven tn
Imitating It juat cheaply and a des
perately a now you Imitate maturity.
I appeal to lha parent. Huraly you
iinnw how vainly you long today for
th youthful llghtheartedn and Irre
sponsibility and simplicity of viewpoint
you one poeed, fturely you cherish
every reminder of youth, gvery sugges
tion of youth In your own nature,
In fullness to your children won't you
oonserv their youtht It won't last. It
la th most fleeting and th most beau
tiful thing In th world. It la dew on
lha graaa In th attnllght glow. Midday
and nlglH com oon enough. Why haaten.
Let it hava a reawakening to th
beauty of youth a movement fur lha
conservation of childhood, a enllment
that ahall make na band ourselvaa Into
a league of and for youth.
