Get al Ihe Cause The interest, which tlic club womun of the county are showing in social welfare, in general, and in the problem of juvenile delinquency, in particular, is wholly commendable. There Is a tremendous onijorluriity for useful service in the lield which they have adopted, and no question but that they can accomplish much good. It should be emphasized, however, that social welfare is to ii very considerable extent de|>endeiil U|x>n economic welfare. The thing works both ways, of course. An intelligent social welfare program can in many individual cases liive the way for economic welfare. That is true where the trouble lies in the individual's mal-adjustmcnt to the social and economic order in which he lives. Hut when the difficulty lies in u failure of the economic order to meet the needs of -a considerable part of the population, including many who by any reasonable test would be classiliecl as persons of normal ability and sound character, the answer is different. The major goal of the "new deal" is to make it possible for all persons . who are physically and" mentally sound to earn a decent living for themselves and their dependents. Achievement of that goal will do more to solve- the problem of the homeless and delinquent child than can possibly !>e done by any other mea,ns. . If, ; 83 Judge'Camille Kelley told the other day, it is an obligation society to do everything possible to achieve a proper social adjustment for those, particularly young people, who come in conflict with our established rules of behavior, then surely it is even more an obligation to strive to eliminate the causes of such social disarrangements. Poverty of the extreme kind which prevents children from attending school and deprives them of other essentials of normal and healthy development is at the root of many cases of juvenile delinquency. We must do our best to treat the disease, but we had better give attention also to the conditions which cause it. us uf OUT OUR WAY Danger of Economizing There is just one thing about the new airmail bids recently submitted in Washington that is a little bit disturbing. That is the thought that some lilies, winning new contracts with extremely low bids, may have to cut the corners so closely in financing their flights that the safety margin will .be reduced. Carrying passengers through the air lit pafcty dejwnds on a number of things, Planes and other equipment must be of tlft Unit quality. The pilots themselves miM be capable and «x- iwrienccd. The network of ground service— radio communications, mechanical servicing, weather reports, technical sti)l- eivision, and so on—must not be skimped. H is greatly to be hoped that no company will lind Itself with such H low ligure on its contract that it will feel obliged to cut on any of these essential safeguards. Economy of that kind would, in the end, be frightfully expensive. SIDE GLANCES . By George Clark Last of Old Cavalry H gives one a sort of oltl and grownup feeling to read that the U: S. War Ue|Mirtment has ordered the cavalry to put away its sables. The War' Department points out that armored cars, tanks, ami so on are replacing the horse IhroUKhuul the mounted service, and that a cavalryman sitting in an auto lias little use for a -sabre; nevertheless, the thought that these, jingling riders with their |K)lished blades are now officially out of date comes as a bit of a surprise. Cavalrymen without sabres—or, for that matter, without even horses! Shades of Allila and lied ford Forrest, of Cnstor and Ney and all the other captains who led galloping troopers into battle beneath a swinging arc of gleaming steel! We must be getting cild, if we have liyed into a day when armies have no use for such things. SQWWII Our use of leisure should represent lire ex- prc&sion of our inner urge and not what some expert in leisure has told us we ought lo do. — Mary Channing Colcman. past president of Ih.:- American Physical Education Association.
