1 rfchanVr has Ijwi ti cited 'nice foi the

Correction, where he sreved three months

Ket money for tho drugs. A month asu

"But you can't keep awav from It
around here." Schaffer explained, as he
told his stor. "I kept away from the
drugu two weeks and then two men held
some heroin before me. I've been pretty
bad stncu then."
His being "ptetty bad" jcsulted in an
attack of heart failure, which caused his
arrest. When Patrolman McKcnna. of
the Eleventh and Winter streets tatlou,
found that Schaffer was not drunk, the
boy was snt to the Hahnemann Hos
pital and then back to the police station
"1 had a close raii. ' said Schaffer. "1
ivas filled with heroin and cocalno all day
and a convulsion got ni. That's th way
they all die," he added, shaking his head.
Schaffer can clear up the mvstery that
surrounds the making of 17-year-old co
"Hard to get cocaine? Well, I should
ay not' ho e.Ntlaimed. "I never had
any trouble buying all I wanted when I
ha'd the money. Did they mind selling to
" a boy? The did not. I could show you
a good man drtirf stores where ou cm
, .. buy it now. ISut most of It comes fro.n
the cocaine peddlers.
"I staited taking drugs just about two
yars ago. 1 used to sta around a pool
. loom at Eighth and Vine streets Tho
fellows In there asked me If t didn't want
to try some heroin. So I did. 1 tool; it
rvery day for a month and then I thought
I il stop. But 1 couldn't."
The onl limes slnco then that the
Schaffer boy has lived without dtugs have
been the periods Just following his re
lease fiom ho-pltals.
' "l worked tor -.onie chemists at Uidith

than three or foil) hours without heroin.
"I used to take little things fiom tho

last march I pleked up some Jew.diy and
they caught mo out on the sidewalk."
Schaffer was sentenced to three months
In th) House of forroction for that. He
was released on June 5 and then got work

Schaffer. "I dldn t go with tne old crowd

hold that public opinion la always right.
That Is a separate question. What I do
wish to point out, however. Is how far
the nations are forced, when they find
themselves In a dangaious position, to
take Into consideration the power of tho
world'i opinion. You may go contrary
to It In times of peace, but when a catas
trophe comes, ono becomes more pliant,
because the entire world sits In Judg
ment, and history may come to collect
"As an example we see that even tho
Russian Government has suddenly be
come sensitive and alive to tho fact that
Jewish soldiers are sacrificing their lives
In this war. This wnr was necessary in
order to open its eyes to see that seven
million Jews in Its domains arc also
human beings. At present, however, the
Ruislan Government Is making only
promises, and these under a 'blind ad
dress.' She has them announced through
anonymous sources in Copenhagen. But
this Is characteristic of war times. Even
the great bear has bestirred itself and
begun to heed public opinion."

"But as the Jew? afft scAttered through'
out tho world, and they rout fight
brother against brother, II la quite hard
to apportion their sympathies. It Is al
most commendable that Germany Is not
angered with the Russian Jewish sol
diers, and Russia with Its German and
Austrian Jewish soldiers. England, how
ever, desires greatly that all Jews who
are not taking a definite side In the wnr
should sympathize with England and
with England's cause.
"It appears strange that at this time
there Is no united Jewish public opinion
on the present war. Tho Jewish opinion
Is greatly scattered becauso tho Jewish
nation Is scattered."
