Mr. Dutcher also brings out some

The controversy that has been raging
In so vend New York papers over the
authorship in 1861 of "All Quiet Along

It is rdated that the senior major

lesson of the war is that dudes fight.

Word ••Aged” nisapplled.
To the Editor of The New York
Time#: A* you invite letter* on all
sorta of subject*. I -laalre to address
j you on what I. together with a large
number of your read ere, consider a
grievance. It t* a grievance which al
most ull the newspaper* tnlllct, but t
write to you. as the Times I* pre-emi
nently my paper. This Is what I have
to complain of. Every few day* I no
tice a heading about nn aged man or
woman lilt by a trolley or cable car or
wagon, or aorm'itaingr TNt kind, auo
Immediately upon reading the word
"aged” there comes Isidore the mind a
vision of bow-backed feebleness or *loh
tierlng Imbecility that eeerns to have In
vited such *tn accident. But when I
come to read the paragraph I often find
that this so-called “aged" person Is
only 48 or 50 years old.
Now, all this Is extremely discour
aging to a large number of your read
ers who range, say. from 50 to SO yours
of age. and so far from regarding them
selves as aged." or .•'venerable." or
■advanced in years," feel themselves
not only quite Strong, but even lively.
If not frisky, and capable of much work
yet In life.
It Is for you to calculate how many
of your readers you ran afford to ex
asperate and possibly lose as subscrib
er* by representing them as being of
the feeble and helpless class Indicated
by aged. Cannot the Times lead off tn
the reform by instructing Its reporter*
to describe none of the ages I have In
dicated as tn any sense aged or vener
able po t pie? Why not draw the line,
say. at*7s> and class alt under that age
ns juvenls nnd only those above It as
senis. nnd so spare the feelings of a
large number of your reaae J r ®r ? VBNls
