A SAFE PLACE FOR MONEY .< We like the plan, fathered by CoL Frank Knox of the Chicago Daily News, for an issue of "baby" Govern- ment bonds to be offered, to everybody in the effort to induce people who ar afraid of banks and other forms of investment tc take their money out of hiding and put it where it will earn something and be useful. These bonds,,we understand, are to be issued in denominations as low as "fifty dollars, and will pay interest at about 3 percent. If they are not! safe, then nothing is. For these bonds to become worthless would mean that the government of the United States had collapsed, and there is no fear of that even among the most timid. We r hope that some scheme will be worked out whereby they can be offered at every Post Office. We still think the best place to pass by. Some have left their job;[ some have quarreled with their wivem; ' some are life-long victims of the wanderlust. We have a house for them in which they may sleep, and no questions asked. They may come to l the kitchen for. their meals, and if they know any trade they may help us with their building operations. When they have stayed with us as long as they want, they move on. "We took our motto from th, words of the Lord, 'Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these m y brethren, ye have done it unto me.' In that spirit we regard them not as tramps but as brothers of our Lord, Brothers Chris- I toter." Listening to his gentle accents, watching the light of benevolence in his fine eyes, I felt encouraged. I re- minded myself that we are often mis- led by the facts that sin gets most of the advertising. Sin is dramatic; so are warfare 'and crime. They are not common- place; they are news. They occupy a , prominent place on almost every  front page, while a million quiet acts I of human kindness are not arid never !can be reported.

One of tl lea-I why so many people who re- I gard themselves as moral Christians! are oIpesed to IWxtibition is that! they do not believe that it is a ques- tion of morals or religion. They re- se the effort to make it appear that ! drinking is sinful So far as our Government and the law are concerned, the question of whether it is sinftd to drink does not enter into the question at all. Prohiibitin is an economic move- merit, not a moral one. If it is to have anything like whole-hefred sulort from the people of the Uni- ted States, that suprt must be sought on economic and social gounds with which probably the majority of truly religious people cannot agree.
