WOMANHOOD OF THE
NATION JSAT STAKE
Mri. Ohaut Sayi that Morals ol
Young: Oirli Muat Be
" Guarded More Than
Urs. Rose M. Ohaus, head of the
domestic relations department of the
Board of Public Welfare, believes
that the conservation oi young
women is one of the problems which
should be faced in connection with
the war situation. She avers there
is a tendency among many girls and
young women to be unguarded in
their morals while under a spell of
sentimental regard lor men in mili
She read the following paper at a
sectional meeting of the Mate Con
"Conserve food, conserve labor,
conserve all the tremendous natural
and manufacturing resources of our
wonderful land, but when the war is
over and the remnants of our young
manhood return to take up life again
and make of the nation 'the land of
1 promises realized,' let the glory of the
nation continue to be its women. Let
ui conserve our womanhood; let us
save to the honor and glory of our
land and the unsullied lives and names
of our young girls. . '
"There is and always has been the
question of the erring woman. Our
responsibility toward her is one of the
- gravest concern of the community,
i . Face Great Peril.
"There is, however, in these war
times, a new and a grave danger, and
that is that the hitherto good girl en
ticed by the glamor of war, of the
soldier going forth to battle for, and
if need be die for his land, falls into
, the error of forgetting all the long,
long future, and all the possible issues
of wat; she falls an easy prey to the
designs of carefree youth, irresponsi
bly givnig herself, her youth, her vir
tue, all that aets her aside from the
woman of sin, and sacrifice herself for
the gratification of the sentimental an
peal to her senses that the soldier
makes. It is for the conservation of
this young woman that I especially
appeal. . .
"Let us learn through the sorrows
of our allies the lesson of the lack of
system during the early war days
taught the nations of Europe.
"We need the labor of women; in
all the old lines of endeavor we need
their .continuance, and in countless
new lines will their assistance be re
quired, but in all and in every way
let the citiiens of America save their
women from the disaster that has be
fallen their European . listers. Let
not the pall of delinquency in women
and children darken our land; let no
hitter aftermath of nameless chil
dren,' ruined women and desolated
hornet follow America's -help to the
nations at war. ' .
. Mutt Organize Right'
"Let us organize now and rightly,
legally, systematically protect our
girls from themselves as well as from
the exengiciet of war. Let the home
mother more carefully guard the
i pride of the nation the purity of our

comes home to us all. We know war's
sequel. Not a family but will mourn
its dead; not a home that will not in
one way or another pay its toll of

in varied other ways will we pay the
price. Many young men and women

to support the dependents made so
by the men's absence in war and in
numberless ways, will lives be

All the sorry, sad and lonely days
ahead of every American can be light

horrors that appal the older nations
at war. Let this nation of ours, strong

the fray with its banners for right

be no sorrowful, no shameful home

This is going to come as a result of
the necessity which the present emer

Acquainted With Railroads.
"This is going to be especially true
as far as our railroads are concerned.
The people cannot escape, if they will,
the necessity of getting acquainted
with the railroads and. of learning the
part which the railroads play in the
tvey day affairs of our nation. The
railoads cannot escape getting ac
quainted with the people. And I am
sure, while we all'regret the coming
