102 BLUEJACKETS HIT

jShy Sea Fighters Respond to
Appeals of Bevy of Young

One hundred ant) two bluejackets and
tnsrlnen at the Philadelphia Navy Yard,
emo of them ihyly permltlliiif them
selves to be perauaded, others boldly con
vinced of the Justlco of the cause, re
sponded to the nppcala of the bovy of
youtte tuffraglats who descended upon
. them-to "hit the suffrage trail."
Thero were scarcely enough of the little
aftron slips to go around. The boys took
to uftrage-or sutfraglsts-llke a hungry
man takes to food, nnd pledged them
selves to the support of woman's enfran
chisement, with all their might and main.
The annex of the Young Men's Chris
tian Association at the yard Is usually
given over to the Literary Club, com
prlslngr a membership of about 30, and
when, the Suffragists asked to address
the men In this auditorium, permission
was easily granUd. Uut rumors of their
coming Jiad been noised around, nnd, In
stead of tho Literary Club, the Invaders
found a goodly portion of tho yard itself
More than 100 bluejackets and marines
greeted them. When nil tho ncats were
taken they crowded tho gallery and. for
want of other space, some of them
draped themselves In thu window sIIIh

Suffragists have ever spoken to enlisted
Miss Dessa C. Kbbert, a field worker
of the woman suffrage party, was the
speaker. She knew her audience and the
appeal she made to them was an exceed
ingly feminine one. Woman's prime need
'ot tho ballot, sho told them, was that she
would bo enabled to look after her chil
dren. 'I can't vote myself," said one marine
a.f"ter she had concluded, ''but I've got a
mother and sister, and I don't see why
Miss Lucy Lewis distributed literature
and called for the trall-hltters, and Miss
Bcslna Neutra, a 17-ycar-old violinist ot
tho party, played ducks and drakes with
tho hcart-strlnga of tho- boys from the
first minute she took the platform Mrs
Felix Katar set them all to humming
with tho clever little suffrage ballad:
It a IsbsId nts tha ballot
To help run tho town.
And a lassie gets tho ballot,
Need a. loisio frown t
Many a laddie has tho ballot.
Not to bright aa I.
And many a laddta ates h! ballot
Overcoma with rye.
If a lassie works for wagts.
Tolling all tha day, ,
And her work tha laddlea' equala
GUo her equal pay.
If a body lays tha taxes,
Surely you'll agree.
That a body earns the franchlae.
Whether he or she.
TVhen the program was concluded and
tho suffra3lsts filed out Tho boa gave
them a rousing cheer and invltedv them
'to come down again, nnd, altogether, a
very good time was had.

As sho appears in Marion Craig
Wentworth's rcmnrkablo playlet,
"War Brides," just published by
tho Century Company.
Roosevelt's "America nnd the World
War" (Scrlbner's, New York) will un
doubtedly be very widely read. Indeed,
it has been already, for It Is a collection
ot reprints from tho flood ot articles
that the war turned loose. The distinct
ly new portion, however tho "Foreword"
will furnUh any fresh reader with the
substance of Roosevelt's argument. The
following excerpts Include what will now
be known as "my policies" on war and
From the International point of view
tho pssentlal thins to do Is to put the
combined power of civilization back
of tho collective purpose ot civiliza
tion to secure Justice This can oe
achieved only by a world league for
the ipeace of righteousness, which
would guarantee to enforce by the
combined strength of all the nations
the decrees of a competent and Im
partial court against any recalcitrant
nnd offending nation. ,Only in this
way will treaties become serious doc
uments. Such a world lcBgue for peace Is not
now In sight. Until it Is created the
prime necessltv for each free and liberty-loving
nation Is to keep Itself In
such a state of preparedness as to be
able to defend by its own strength
both Us honor and its ltal Interest.
Tlie most Important lesson for the
United States to learn from the pres
ent war is the vital need that it shall
at once take stops to prepare.
Tho author has managed to raise the
usual set ot unfortunate and lrrelevent
antagonisms that accompany any of his
pronouncements. For instance one can't
help being repelled by the evident pur
pose of attacking "Messrs. Wilson and
Bryan" for campaign purposes. Roose
velt's discussion of Belgium, If it means
anything at all, means that we should
now be at war with Germany; yet
throughout the book there Is the most
evident attempt to "butter" German
American voters with allusions to "my
own German ancestors" and the not very
fortunate description of Germany's "far
seeing self-devotion." And there Is what
seems a very short-sighted estimate of
the pacificists.. Part of it Is mere insult;
allusions to "trusting- for guidance to the
feeble." and remarks such as "The ultra
pacificists are rarely men who go to bat
tle" whtch rather Ignores the way the
Socialist anti-nationalists of France went
to the front.
It Is undoubtedly tho sneers at the
peace man which most threaten Roose
velt's excellent case for a world peace to
be secured, as wa have secured domestto
peace, by armed assertion of justice. For
If this Ideal of a world league is ever to
be achieved. It must to achieved by the
sentiment of all the gTeat nations that
peace and not war is the handmaid of
civilization. Every effort of every pacifi
cist tends toward that end. The world
stands embattled today In splta of the
most monumental ot attempts to "secure
peace by preparing against war" as well
as tha moat earnest of pacificist propa
gandas Roosevelt and the pacificist are on
the same footlngv They must strive In the
future with understanding1 and sympathy.

through England might supplement their
Interesting descriptions even better. "Four
on a Tour Through England" (Hearst's
International Library Company, New
York), covers six very worth-while
weeks' travel through parts of Eng
land, Wales nnd Scotland, The authors
show a keen appreciation for the beauties
ot cities, villages, points of historical In
terest and landscapes, and Impress their
appreciation upon their readers through
welt-chosen language and some 150 Illus
trations. If only tuck had been against
their hurried and convenient trip by
motor, and that machine had been stalled
In some craggy mountain pass far from
a parage many of tho pictures would
have been eVen more charming nnd less
Infested with that Inartistic but useful
piece of modern civilisation. Wo might
enjoy one of those chnrmlng English
countrysldos more if our view were not
obstructed by two or three people sit
ting In a machine.
It seemed frankly Impossible, when
Compton Mackenzie had written "Carni
val," that ho Bhould write, ever, a book
moro spirited and more beautiful, mora
lovely and moio chaste. It was n book
about which a critic truly snld that thero
was but one tlmo In n young man's llfo
when It could be written, nnd but one
when It should be rend. Certainly
"youth's Encounter," the forlorn pretude
to a life which did not, nt tho time, exist,
slidne only In the bright radiance of the
Mfo of Jenny Pearl.
So that "Sinister Street" b. Appteton
S. Co), which fulfils nnd Justifies all of
"Youth's Encounter," stands doubly Arm
nF a high, bright, dazzling Achievement.
It takes up the life of Michael Fane, with
his halcyon dsjs nt St. Mary's, Oxford,
nnd develops it with a skilful and fasci
nating dutnll until It cornea to predes
tined culmination In n deserted square In
Home, where "one mighty column, Jet
black ngnlnst tho starshlne," stands as
the symbol of eternal truth. " 'All I havo
done and experienced so far,' Mlchnel
thought, 'would not Rcrntch this stone.'"
Wlint Michael had experienced Is In
cluded In his "romantic education," which
ho flnda In tho underworld ot London.
Michael, n modern Quixote out ot Dumas,
enters thiough the gates of hell to find
the girl whom his own prldo and indlf
ferenco hae thrown Into the pit. His
search for her, from tho Crescent to tho
Cafo d'Ornnge. through Lcppnrd street,
foul with murder and outrage, nnd finally
through tho gates of dream, nnd the In
evitable disaster, compose the most fas
cinating narrative of a jounc man's life
which our own time can compare with
the 1S30 confessions of France With the
dltfcrf-nce that in this tho romantic glam
our makes llfo not less real, but more.
The road which leads Michael to Rome
Is tho sinister byway ot tho world. For
that tlio author will, no doubt, be con
demned, The telling of the story Is beau
tiful, mannered, exquisite; and for that
tho book may not be read. Mr. Mac
kenzie professes his Interest In the form
of tho English noel, nnd Inasmuch as
the only master of that form has, with
all fine distinction, prnlscd his work, his
opinions are not to bo neglected. He is,
no doubt, the only jounger writer with
whoso theories it is good to concern one
Because, in the end, his works surpass
theory, and with an extraordinary direct
ness communicate the loveliness and the
wonder of tho life they hold. Innsmuch as
the author has loved his creation he has
achieved tho Infrequent distinction of
making his crentlon beloved.

The old cards In a new hand that about
describes Harold Blndloss' latest novel,
"The Secret of the Reef" (Stokes, New
York). Out ot his pack of thrills and
sentiments, excitements and emotions ho
has shufDed what ought to be a winning
hand In the Action market, even it It
does not take the "best seller" pot.
The savor ot the salt sea is in tha
tale and the storms ot the sea as well,
for the hero Is the mate of a Pacific
liner, who, with a pair of adventurous
companions, seeks treasuro trove hidden
In a wrecked ship on a bleak Alaskan
reef. Salvage of tho prize, bringing for
tune to the treasure seeker, is accom
plished only after tha surmounting' of
many difficulties and by the performance
of many deeds of daring, as a clever
clique has an Interest In maintaining the
mystery ot tho reef. Intimately Inter
woven with the solution of the secret of
the treasure ship Is the hero's romance,
for the entirely lovable heroine's career
Is related to the mystery of the vessel
washed by the Pacific's surge.
Both quest of fortune and the prize of
love are won by the sturdy hero in one
of the author's characteristically active
tales without any undue stretch of plausi
bility and with a realistic reproduction of
atmosphere derived from Mr. Blndloss'
own experience as a sailor along tho
coast that serves as locale for "The
