A FORTUNE AT
YOUR FINGER TIPS
It is the public library, this fortune
at your finger tips, and while no flood
of gold comes from the library, the
flood of knowledge to be obtained
from its books points to a fortune
further on in life when the knowl-
edge absorbed from books is convert-
ed into any form of wealth needed to
make a people contented.
Do you ever envy your more for-1
tunate fellowmen who have been to 1
colleges and universities, who have
traveled widely; whose acquaintance
with the wise and powerful gives them
an insight into world affairs that you
feel you lack?
You can overcome this handicap
if you will but try! By diligent effort
you can make yourself the equal in
wisdom of practically any of whose
opportunities you never have had.
The key is within your reach. It is
It is the business of the library,
not only to keep on its shelves the
books you should read to make your-
self familiar with your chosen field,
but to aid you in finding those books.
Would you understand the devious
diplomatic blunders that led to the
European war? You will find your
questions answered in the library!
Do you see a chance to better your-
self by enlisting in some different in-
dustry? The chances are yop can find
in the library most of the information
about this particular field, lack of
which holds you back.
Many career shave been planned
and founded over a library table. And
don't forget that the library is sup-
porteu by taxes, which means that you
pay your share to keep it going.

WARS AND THE BIRTH RATE
As the great war drags on toward
another New Year, as it becomes more
and more the business of the whole
world, too many persons incline to
take a comfortable view of it. They
accept it as the inevitable, as if it
were a convulsion of nature, as much
beyond human control as an eruption
Falling back 011 Malthus relieves
the "strictly neutral" and some who
profit much by war's commerce of
any responsibility for an opinion as
| to "who made the war."
I Malthus, a hundred years ago,
i warned mankind that population tend-
: i'd to exceed subsistence unless war
j famine and pestilence were to have
I sway occasionally.
| And between the war and the ex-
^ traordinary rise in food prices man
I seems to be caught, somehow, in the
I actual working out of old Mathus' pet
But peaceful persons who believe
I that it is a nation's duty to keep out
of war maintain that the present
struggle cannot be justified on any
theory of the over-population of any
Old Malthus did not have very good
birth statistics to figure from, but the
National Council of Public Morals in
England has them and in their recent
report they state that the birth rate is
"If the birth rate were maintained
at anything like its natural level all
over the world, the population of the
globe, which is now 1,700,000,000,
would in, 120 years, have reached
27,000,000,000 or about ten times as
great a number as the earth could work, esepcially in her interpretation

And the English reports says that
"the decline has been more marked
in the more prosperous classes," that
I "wherever political and social condi-
■ tions bring a man or a class into a po-
| sition in which he hopes to rise or
} fears to fall, the family will be restric-
j ted," and that "the birth rate varies
j inversely with the income."
Evidently persons who fear war or
defend it is an unavoidable process
of nature must hereafter ignore the
birth records and overlook the consci-
ous limitation which develops in na-
tions in proportion to their culture or
status of civilization.
