Divorce Great Evil, But Lessens
Dorothy Dlx, in Atlanta Georgian.
,Wc are all agreed that the divorce
evil ia an evil, indeed, and that it is a
terrible thing for a home to be broken
up anil the little children in it to bo cast
out upon the world half-orphaned, de
prived of either a mother’s tender
watchfulness or a father's wise guid
Hut while we condemn divorce, we
must not Iobo sight of tho fact that it
is the lesHer of two evils, and that if
there were no divorce there would be
wholesale murder. Hind a man and a
woman indissolubly together in fetters
that they can break by no proeoss of
law and they will cut them if they
have to use the knife of the assassin
with which to do it.
Make it so a woman cannot free her
self from the brute who mistreats her,
and some day she will turn Lucretia
Horgia and poison him. Tie the wo
man he has come to hate like the fester
ing corpse of a dead love about a man’s
neck, and there will surely come a time
when in some access of fury and re
volt he will slay.
As long ns humanity is built as
t is divorce is the greatest preventive
of murder among the mismated.
As proof of this we have the two
trugodies, both double murders, that
are now engaging tho putilic attention,
and both of which were innocently
caused by wives who refused to di
vorce their husbamlB.
The first case is that of Ida SnifTen
Walters, with whom Lorlys Elton
Rogers, n married man, fell in love.
This couple established a home together.
They had children. They lived on the
hope that Rogers’ wife, knowing of
her husband's infidelity and this seeond
establishment, would divorce him and
permit him to marry the woman he
loved and legitimatize their children.
Mrs. Rogers refused to divorce her
husband, nnd when Ida SnilTen Walters
understood that the man sho had sneri-
liced so much fur never would be free
to marry her and to give their children
a name, in a moment of mad despair
she killed the children and attempted
to take her own life.
The other case is that of liiram
Crsig, who a few days ago murdered a
young girl. Miss Reeves, with w hom he
was infatuated, and killed another wo
man who tried to protect her. It
seems that seven years ago Craig fell
in love with this girl, and had iilmn-
doned his family for her. He wanted
to marry the young woman, but his
wife would not hear of u divorce. Sho
knew of his relationship with the
other woman, hut she forgave and en
dured meekly, as the anti-divorce
theorists tell us that the woman should
do under such circumstances. Finally
the girl's conscience awoke, or some
glimmering of common sense made her
perceive how idiotic is the woman who
wastes all of her youth and beauty on
a married man, or else some other man
caught her wandering fancy, and she
wrote to Craig that she would have
nothing more to do with him. Mad
with jealousy, the middle-aged Lothario
rushed to her hoarding place, and, after
a scene full of hilt, r recrimination, he
killed the girl and a woman who sought
to interfere between them, and then
Neither of these murders would have
been committed if the men who hud
tired of their wives and had fallen in
love with other women could have got
ten divorces. Weak and unmoral as
Craig and Ida Smlfen Walters are, they
are not murderers at heart. They
were driven to frenzy by the situation
in which they found themselves, and
out of which there was no gate except
that of divorce—and that gate was
barred to them.
These I wo cases—and there are many
others similiar to them- raise a very
interesting ethical question, and that is
whether u wife does right or wrong to
hold her husband when he has ceased
to love her and does love another wo
man and wants to be sot free.
Of course, a woman may be con
scientiously opposed to divorce. She
may believe that the marriage tie is
unbreakable, no matter how much it
gets frayed and worn or how weak it is
and powerless to hold the man. She
may think it a wife's duty to forgive
a husband's side-stepping, even when
he doesn’t want to be forgiven, and,
believing this, she may hold it a noble
thing to refuse to give him a divorce,
even though she is forcing him down
deeper into the mire of a despicable
life and pressing the crown of shame
on another woman’s brow and making
helpless little children outcasts in so
That is one side of the story. The
other side is that nobody can say that a
woman should deliverover her husband
to any other woman who happens to want
him. The neglected wife is not blamed
if she takes her revenge iiy refusing to
give her husband a divorce and permit
him to put her rival in her place.
It is a curious phase of the divorce
problem, and one worth considering,
because it shows one thing clearly, and
that is that if we make divorce im
possible we shall make murder com

Stuff Called Liquor.
The Judge of the Superior Court of
Chatham county has joined the King of
England, the Czar of Russia, the Em
peror of Germany and the King of
France in making war upon the use of
liquor. It was clearly shown in the
trial of a murder case before Judge
Charlton yesterday that the defendant
had committed the crime for which he
was convicted because he was drunk.
Tho court seemed impressed with
the fact that the court docket is made
as long as it is at each criminal session
because of the use of liquor, or vile
concoctions that are sold in this com
munity under the guise of liquor. In
his assertion that the liquid often
poured down a man's throat is not even
liquor, hut something even worse than
that, the Judge was unquestionably
right. It is the horrible, hrain-ste ding
and soul-destroying concoctions that

For Better Movies.
The Woman’s Home Companion has
| started a movement for better motion
pictures. Several hundred films will be
submitted to the editors of that maga
zine each month in advance of their
release to the motion picture houses.
From these the editors will select from
forty to seventy-five which, in their
estimation, are especially commend
able, both from an artistic and ethical
standpoint. The names of these films
are recommended to women’s clubs, to
librarians, to teachers, and to parents,
as clean, wholesome, educational and
entertaining exhibits worthy of patron
age. Of the importance of elevating
motion pictures in the United States
the Woman’s Home Companion says:
"Within the last few years there
have sprung up in your community
brunches of a new institution which
draws to itself every week more young
people than are in the churches on
Sunday, more young people than are in
the schools on week-days—an institu
tion whose influence on our young peo
ple, in the judgment of educators, is
second only to the influence of the
family, the church and the schools.
Yet of this institution, and the men
behind it, and its possibilities for good,
the average parent has not yet taken
the trouble to make himself or herself
"The church has its pastors and
governing committees; the school is
watched over jealously by associations
of parents and teachers. The motion
picture theatre, which draws as many
children as either, and for almost as
many hours in the week as either, is
not yet taken seriously by thousands of
us. And yet the motion picture thea
tre has unquestionably come to re
main—a permanent, potent factor in
White Teachers in Georgia.
According to the report of the State
School Superintendent there are over
5,000 white teachers in Georgia hold
ing first-grade license; 2,000 holding
second-grade license, and nearly 1,000
with third-grade license. A teacher
with a third-grade license is authorized
to teach only one year. How many
years will the superintendents allow
these teachers to continue teaching
with a third grade license? In behalf
of the 40,000 little children under these
poorly equipped teachers, we urge the
superintendents and editors of the
State to insist upon these teachers
preparing themselves for better work
by attending the State Normal School.
A teacher who can make only 50 per
cent, on an examination on elementary
subjects should not continue year after
year on the pay-roll.
How about the 80,000 children under
the 2,000 elementary school teachers
with only Becond-grade license? Ought
not the editors and superintendents in
sist upon these continuing their stud
ies, so that they will be better equip
ped for the great responsibility placed
upon them, especially as the State pro
vides facilities for their training at a
nominal cost? Should not those in
authority insist upon the children hav
ing first-grade teachers?
The State Board of Education
through its regulations governing the
certificates of teachers, states that
every teacher should spend at least one
summer at the summer school in study,
during the life of the certificate. Of
the 8,000 white teachers in Georgia
last year only about 800 were enrolled
in summer schools. In Virginia 3,000
were enrolled, and in Kansas 60 per
cent, of the teachers attended the
At the lowest estimate there should
he 2,000 Georgia teachers in the sum
mer school in July. Your children are

are keeping up in their profession.

Will He Smooth It Over ?
Milton Pounly Nows.
Thos. W. Hardwick, the junior Sena-1
tor from Georgia, in a speech delivered
recently at Thomasvilie, denounced the
Democratic Administration for not t
helping the farmers of the South when
they gent up a distr.FS cry last fall,
when the cotton market was demoral
ized. We expected the Senator to
make a defense of this kind, and are
not sui prised that he has denounced
the action of his party.
How can Senator Hardwick con
scientiously denounce the action of the
Democratic party in turning a deaf ear
to the farmers in their distress, when
he said at a time the farmers were
calling on the Administration for help:
“1 am opposed to the Henry bill, and
cannot support it. It is not a proper
function of the Government to engage
in the business of buying or loaning
money on any product.”
Of course, Senator Hardwick sees
that he must do something, and has
perhaps figured it out that the best
thing for him to do is to jump on the
Administration with both feet; but
pray tell us what Senator Hardwick
has done to get the Government to
loan this money to the fa. mers? We
do not believe the junior Senator can
smooth it over with his constituents in

mark that when we get to be worth as

discover why men sixty and seventy
years of age and worth from forty to
one hundred thousand dollars should
continue to toil from early until late in
all kinds of weather. We like to see a
man provide something for his family

boy is better off if not left too much

A few days ago one of our good
farmers, Mr. Jasper N. Kilgore, who

seventy men, his neighbors and friends,

his house and prepared for planting the
two crops of Mr. Kilgore and his son-
