In England there is a penalty of five yeai^s penal servitude for cutting down a tree on another person's land under terms of a statute passed in 1861. cbjncidence arises in the fact that a'jgrbup of citizens is raising fUnds J to erect a suitable niem- Otial to honor Father Marquette. a man who died 2C4 years ago. While another group of citizens ls,raising money to erect a modern, hospital for the benefit of all who are living today. ^Father Marquette, whose inciu- oty is to be honored, was possibly the'-.first white man to set eyes on the ground where the city of the war and to a slate of affairs in | The other group in :gross seems to seek a neutrality that will isolate us from aiding ; either side and in that way keep : us out of war. Their declaration j of no entanglements with Europe's warring nations seems to ! be a sound policy. But is it? | Their way may keep us out of ! the war directly, but u by our lot be afrai toeV ejrected on the authentic tieathsite of this noble young i Jesuit priest, missionary and ex- i plqrer who passed away at the ! age of 38 and who left his foot- j prints so indelibly imprinted in : the entire Great Lakes region, I lh$n known as the Northwest j Territory. This beloved man lived ' less than 10 years on the North j American continent, having ar- : rived at Quebec from his home .' in France to take up his mission I work in 1666 at the age of 29. He j difed on the shore of Lake Mich- I igan in 1675. With the exception i of-General LaFayette, his ilhis- i trious countryman, he is possibly j the most' respected and honored j man to set foot on the American ' cqhtinent. The homage and respect paid to'this fearless explorer by all familiar with his career after 264 instrates that man of great - wi ' : '-- ' continent will be accelerated and !j will engulf most of Europe. Then, when our position as a world power is again at stake, we will be forced to enter and war in all its fury will continue until one side or the other gives up. What course this nation should take—the president's or the strict neutralitists—-is impossible of correct answer now, but by the only criterion we have, that, of past experience, then we should follow the adage of "An ounce of prevention, being worth a pound of cure" and the president's way- would be a good choice Thank you. RUDOLPH ANDERSON Ludington. j COMPLAINT I EDITOR.

G. H. YOUNG. NEUTRALITY EDITOR, THE NEWS: What is neutrality? The dictionary defines a neutral as one who is unbiased and as one who takes no part on either side in a contest. The first part of the definition would leave very few neutrals to be found among- the people in this country in regard to the warring nations abroad. If we think that Germany is wrong in seizing Poland and Czecho-Sloyakia, then we are biased against Germany and at least in spirit are not neutral The newspapers and the radio are at present very busy in bringing to the people the opinions of our president and our congressmen in respect to what our country's neutrality policies should be The president and one group of congressmen want to be neutral in action but not in spirit. In my opinion, they believe that Germany j s wrong and therefore the United States should aid France and England, not by becoming an actual ally fnd fighting, but by means that indirectly will aid them and will at the same time indicate to Germany that we do not favor their actions. The president and his group _ total employees are no more i than are en-pioyed on the five •carierries now running. Why give the general run of carferry employees a bad name for the offense of one or two who miss step? is it fair? : I note that for years and years (he carferry employees are .solicited both at home and on the boats for The Salvation Army, ' Red Cross and now for the new hospital. They are good enough to b,e asked for donations but not good enough to prevent from being given a black eye before the public. Most of the carferry employes jure law-abiding, respectable citizens of Ludington or vicinity own or rent homes and spend money Ireely helping support Ludington's .stores, banks, etc but such items as the one referred to will make many of us discontinue subscribing or buying The Daily News.
