BECAUSE OF HOME
Startling Assertion of
Superintendent of the
Mission in New ork
Formulated in Home Loug
Before Application Is Made in
Legislative Halls to Remedy Evils
Prevalent in Many American Cities
By Atsvaalcd Press.
Kansas City, Mo., Nov. 9.—More
girls go wrong because of home condi
tions than for any other reason, es
corted Miss Margaret E. Luther, super
intendent of the Florence Crittenton
Home, New York City, -in an address
before the International Purity Con
gress here to-day.
Miss Luther, who spoke on "The
Girls Who (io Through the New York
< ourts," pointed out that most of t!io
£iris with whom the courts have to
ileal arc not more than IS years old.
"Statistics show that the large
number of girls who go wrong are not
alone in the world," she said. "Nor
are they all wage earners. Girls come
to us from all stations and all condi
tions of life. In must of the cases the
minds are polluted in early childhood.
Home conditions are responsible. Out
of 150 girls recently brought before
the New York women's night court,
259 were not more than IS years old,
L while 116 of them were onlv 16 years
ft Stories of locked doors and barred
■ windows in connection with white
'V.siavery, are largely imaginary, accord
ing to Miss Luther.
\ "The men who live on eominercial
aoed vice arc the men you see standing
op the street corners," she continued.
' ''Their victims are usually silly little
giils thev win bv wiles. And the girl
such a man can enslave soul, mind and
body, is worse than any physical slave.
"A .iudae recently told ine that 90
per cent, of the men lie ha 1 sentenced
for white slavery, were less than 22
years old. Home conditions arc respon
sible for this situation.
"Some people are inclined to say
that if we had better laws we would
"have better living and better home
conditions. Character is formed in the
ihonie long before man goes to legisla
tive halls fo make laws; and the home

Austrians call It the battlj of Koeuij;

Germany and Prance. the great en
gageinent that tbe Germans call tbe
battle of GraveloLte is spoken of by
the I'rencb as the battle of St. Prlvai.
The same thing was common In our
civil war. The battle that Is known tn
the north as tbe battle of Bull Run
would not be recognized by most south

It Is invariably called tbe buttle of

called the battle of Sbiloli. Antielitm

whose father was a Confederate ofli

ever heard of the battle of Antietam.
although he was familiar with all the
details of the battle of Sbarpsburg.
The reason for this is that the op
posing armies always name tbe battle
from some prominent geographical
landmark, aud as they look at tbe field
from different points of view they nat
urally settle on different names. Thus,
at Waterloo, the battle took Us Eng
lish name from the little village where
Wellington made his final hcadquar
tera and whence be sent to Vnglaud
the first dispatch that announced bin
victory. So in 18t>6 the headquarters
of the Prussian army was near the vil
lage of Sadowa, whereas that of the
Austrian* was near the village of Koe
nlggraetE. At Gravelotte tbe little vil
lage of that name was an Important
point In tbe German lines. On tbe side
of tbe French tbe hamlet of St. Prlvat
was the key to their battle formation.

OUR MEDAL OF HONOR.
More Difficult to Win Than Any For
eign Military Decoration.
Americans of average information
know about the Victoria Cross, the
Iron Cross, the Cross of the Legion of
Honor. These are rewards of hern
ism which would mark a man above
his fellows even in this foreign land
But many Americans know what
a mednl of honor is?
How many Americans know that tin*
modest American soldiers who wear
the medal of honor wear a decoration
that is among the rarest and most difii
cult to win among military honors?
The Cross of the Legion of Honor,
established b.v Napoleon in ISO-, wbil»
founded to signalize deeds of special
daring in war. was after given freely
for civil distinctions. Nearly 40,00:>
German soldiers were decorated witti
the Iron Cross in the seven months of
the Franco-Prussian war. while in tho
more than half century since the crea
tion of our honor roll only 3,088 have
been granted, and of these nearly 90<!
were given under a mistaken reading
of the law.
The holder of the modal of honor
must have "dititinguished himself con
spicuously by gallantry and Intrepidity,
at the risk of his life, beyond the call
of duty." This standard, which bar*
out action, however brave. In the
course of duty and includes only acts
of daring which a man might refuse
