39 REPUBLICAN SENATORS,
Party Will Surely Have Enough
Strength in State Body to Confirm
Herman P. Miller, Senate Librarian,
is tabulating the Senators and mem
bers-elect of the next Legislature, but
cannot arrive at a complete tabulation
until the full official returns are re
ceived. The tabulation of the Senate
shows 39 Republicans (two of whom
are in doubt in the Cameron and Craw
loYd districts, 10 Democrats aud 1
Washington party man. This includes
the hold-overs, only one Democratic
Senator having been elected Tuesday,
so far as positively shown by the re
turns thus far.
The makeup of the House is so
mixed, owing to some of che candidates i
elected having been on several ]*artv
tickets, that it will be hard to classi
fy them until they have declared with
which party they will stand during the
coming session. Th.; Republicans,
however, arc largely in the majority.
Even if the two doubtful Senatorial
districts are carried bv the Democrats,
it will still leave 37 Republicans,
which is three more than the two
thirds necessary to confirm the appoint
ments of the Governor, it requiring 34 j
votes for that purpose
Among those whose election is sure '
is Senator Charles W. Kline, of AUe-1
gheny, who was elected President pro !
tem. at the close of the last Legisla
ture. He w ill be re-elected to that:
post when the Senate meets in Janu- I
arv. Senator Kline is Republican I
city chairman of 'Pittsburgh.

SEX QUESTION PARAMOUNT!
Education Is Crying Need of Hour, Says
Professor Galloway at Purity
fi.v Associated Preta.
Kansas City, Mo., Nov. 7. —Educa- j
tion is the crying need of the hour in j
respect to the whole sex question, ac- '
cording to Professor Thomas \V. Callo
way, of James Milliken University, j
Defatur, 111., who spoke before the In- :
ternational Purity Congress here to-day. ;
He said, that, education was the only
preventive of umhastity for which law,,
reform movements ag;.inst prostitution,!
campaigns against social diseases and 1
efforts to obtain living wages were
"And iet me say that biological
tacts are only the starting point in this
education, he said. "It consists mucji
in building up standard ideals, purposes
and appreciation of sex as a means of
enriching life. 'Much of this will never
l>e called sex instruction, but it is none
the less so.''
Steps toward the desired goal. Prof.
Oallowav asserted, were redemption of
the idea of sex, the teaching of con
structive aspects of sex rather than the
perversions and pathology of it, the
creation of a public sentiment which
would allow some experimentation and
inevitable false steps and the training
of teachers and parents.

Some One at the Door!
Miinv readers of this column have
expressed interest in the reflecting hull
mirror and have written to ask how if
may be tiling but only two letters have
given specific directions. The directions
are very welcome and perhaps they
H ill lead to SOHIO simple contrivance
that can tie installed in all entrances.
There are many reasons why house
keepers like to know who is ringing
for admittance. The duil\ papers con
stantly tell of iniposters gaining
entrance into homes ami of peddlers,
agents and robbers forcing their way
into unprotected houses. So the Holland
idea so clearly explained in the follow
ing letters is interesting.
"The request for hanging reflecting
mirror in entry, in issue of October 5,
lias my attention. 1 have lived in Hol
land and so am familiar with the
splendid idea. It was in use in our
home and we found it indispensible.
"The mirror used'is a magnifying
one. like those sold tor shaving, held
in an iron frame. This was attached
to the window frame 011 the outside and
toeused on the front TToor, or entrance,
in such a way that we ou the inside
could see, without being seen, who
dropped the knocker.
Anyone with a little ingenuity can
construct such an arrangement and in
this land of bogus inspectors it should
serve good purpose.
This mirror is called the 'Spion,' or
S PV in Holland.—Hollander."
The second letter is as follows:
Just returned from the war zone by
way of Uotterdum and one of the things
I brought back with me is the little mir
ror someone is asking about.
