The police in many communities
I are giving a good report of prohibi-
tion. There is a notable decrease in
crimes of certain kinds. Disorderly
hoodlums grow scarcer; wife-beat-
ers diminish; cases of cruelty to chil-
dren are fewer.
But the need of caution is not gone.
Prohibition is a national confession
that we cannot be trusted to control
our appetities. We behave better
with light handcuffs on, and herein
is the wisdom of prohibition. But
we have appetites to which alcohol
never administered, and their mas-
tery is a commonplace to all who
read the daily history of our larger

I THE INDIANjS
Chicago, Sept, 15.—Dear Selina:
Mat, bat, cat, I love you. Amen."
This is the first love letter written
by an Alaskan Indian to his copper-
skinned sweetheart, the belle of the
tribe—a missive brought here by E.
A. McIntosh, a lay missionary of the
Episcopal Church, to show the pro-
gress in the gentle art of "How to
Write Letters" made by the abori-
gines in Uncle Sam's forthest north.
Mc. McIntosh conducted onp of the
fifty-odd missions in the Alaskan
wilds which are to be helped to
greater service through the aid of

ter to Selina learned his A. B. C's.
in a mission on the Tanana river 600
miles from the coast. He had
"mushed" over the snow-hid trails
to the mission house, where he
studied with pardonable pride and in-
tense energy the dog-eared primer
provided. The primer was one of
the books that had been sent from
the United States, and had traveled
by water and rail and dogsled, for-
warded by the Church Periodical Club
of the Episcopal Church. The club's
work of sending books to those far
and remote places where they are
much needed and almost impossible
to obtain, is one of the activities
which the Church's Nation-wide cam-
paign is designed to expand.
Hundreds of books are sent by the
Church Periodical Club monthly to
the half-hundred missions established
by the Episcopal church among the
Indians and in the camps and settle-
ments of Alaska. In this manner the
"original settlers" are being helped
to better American citizenship. The
Nation-wide campaign is designed to
further that work.
