Our "Depressed" Neighbors
By CHARLES STELZLE
fOUU million "Spanish-Americans" claim our attention In Cuba, In Porto
Hlco nnd In tho southwest section of tho United States, nlthotigh the
majority are neither Spanish nor Americans. While you have no right
to assume nn air of pharasalcal supremacy with regard to any other raco or
class of people, nevertheless It Is our btiHlness to be mightily concerned about
any group nnywhero which Is suiTerlng through Ignorance because of Illit
eracy, through superstition because of mistaken religious teaching, through
Immorality because of low standards of leadership. These must nil bo eradl-
ILLITERACY IN CUBA

cated, first of all for tho sake of the people themselves, but also because tho
weal or tho woo of every man and woman nnd child helps to constitute tho life
and tho thought of tho world.
Much of the situation that ono finds in Spanish-American countries is duo
to the causes Just Indicated. Tills is particularly true of Cuba, for whoso
birth and being tho United States is so largely responsible. According to the
census of 1007, tho conditions with regard to Illiteracy in thnt country were as
Is indicated on the alxvo poster. Out of a total population of 2,01S,9S0, 21,420
were carpenters, ono out of every seven being illiterate. Of cigar factory
operatives there were 24,101, the proportion of Illiteracy being slightly higher.
Hut these constituted tho better typo of workers. Of farmers, planters and
farm laborers there were 304,821 males and 3,110.feniales. Of tho mnlcs 235,
027, or nearly two-thirds, were Illiterate. The Illiteracy among the females
wis in nbout tho same proportion. About one-half of the males of voting age
aro Illiterate. Another striking fact in connection with the life of Cuba is that
2Vj7,SSS, or 12.0 per cent of the total population, nre Illegitimate children.
But horo they are another distinct obligation which America must meet
They need Bchools that will not only teach their children to become efficient
workmen, but which teach them the dignity and the beauty of labor. In tho
schools that wo furnish wo must therefore provide a curriculum which will
combine manual training and art and music, besides the other cultural teach
ing, but principally wo must teach those things which make for a better man
hood and womanhood.

HELEN KELLER" -SINGS
TO MANY NATIONALITIES.
Girl Born Deaf, Dumb and Blind Also
Mliw Helen Keller, born denf, dumb
nnd blind, showed tho assembled otolo
gists nt their congress In Uic Hnrvard
Medical school that sho had added still
another to her phenomenal list of ac
complishments when she sang to them.
During tho formal addresses, which
were mostly In foreign tongues, Miss
Keller sat on tho platform listening
through the fingers of her teacher,
Professor White of tho New England
Conservatory of Music, nnd now nnd
then applauding when a speaker made
particularly pleasing reference to tho
new education of tho blind.
When It came Professor White's turn
ho demonstrated tho extent of control
that Miss Keller had gained over her
vocal chords, tongue and Hps. Ills Illus
trations were conveyed from his lips to
Miss Keller's finger tips, placed tightly
over his mouth. All tho vowels and
tho consonant sounds uttered by Miss
Keller camo out clearly and precisely,
nnd tho nudlcnco spontaneously broke
Into tho heartiest applause.
Then came tho crowning achieve
ment, tho singing of nn octave on sol
nnd fa nnd re, somo of tho tones be
ing very sweet. This performance not
only amazed but delighted the savants.
Miss Keller, Professor White snys,
has the rare faculty of absolute pitch
Previous to giving Oils exhibition
Miss Keller made an address in Eng
lish, in which sho said:
"This Is n new day In tho education
of tho deaf, tho day when the physi
cian is no longer content to tight the
hostile silences with medicine nnd sur
gical Instruments nlone, but helps the
teacher to pour tho blessed waters of
speech Into the desert of dumbness."
Portions of Ids address Miss Keller
repeated In French and German for
the edification of the representatives of
Moreover, she talked over the phone,
and so clear was her enunciation that
tho reporter nt tho other end did not
realize until told afterward that It

asking questions of.
