The school laws of Georgia require
that “the nature of alcoholic drinks
and narcotics shall be studied and
taught thoroughly in the common and
public schools in the same manner as
other required branches are taught in
said schools.” Now. it will require a
competent chemist to explain the na
ture of alcohol or the meaning of nar
cotics; yet young girls engaged in
teaching, who know nothing about
chemistry, are required to teach “thor
oughly” these branches! Doctors pre
scribe both alcohol and narcotics for
their remedial ejects in certain cases,
and yet all children must be “taught
thoroughly” that their use is injurious.
Just the other day President Taft was
quoted as asking, "What is whiskey?”
It' the President of these United States
doesn’t know what whiskey is, how
can the average country school teacher
be expected to know? The fact stands
out that Georgia’s school laws are de
fective. They should either he wiped
out or reconstructed along new and dif
Another query: If “near-beer” is

the State licenses its sale, is not the
State guilty of violating the prohibi
tion law? Again: Does it look well
for a prohibition State to pay her leg
islators and teachers with money de
rived from taxes levied on alcoholic
drinks? Verily, it seems hard for the
legs of the lame to keep even.
The automobile craze seems to have
taken complete possession of the At
lanta newspapers. The idea of having
the roads of Georgia macadamized or
asphalted for the pleasure of “joy ri
ders” who come out from the cities is
too preposterous for anything. If there
were no machines to be sold we daresay
the craze would soon die out, and coun
try folk could then venture upon the
highways without danger to life or
There may he wisdom in the theory
of compulsory education, hut we fail
to see it in that light. The majority of
parents will, from simple love of their
children, send them to school as long
as they can without being compelled
to do so by law.
