Antidote for Anarchy

     Grace Wakeman, Regent, Daughters of the American Revolution, writes from Southport, Conn., to the press, suggesting that competent lecturers be sent into the “slums where anarchy reigns,” to inculcate a reverence for government. Now, I would inform Grace that that is exactly what the Socialists are doing every day in the year. The Socialist lecturer is the only antidote the slums ever have for anarchism, and if Grace cares to push along the good work she can get full particulars from Leon Greenbaum, Secretary, Socialist Party, Emilie Building, St. Louis, Mo.
     If Grace don’t think that Socialism is the only antidote for anarchism, then it is simply owing to her ignorance.
     If she thinks that Socialism is about as bad as anarchism, then she should chip in with me and hire some expert anti-Socialist lecturer to show up its fallacies.
     I have given up hope of ever getting money enough together to hire any such lecturers, but Grace inspires me with renewed hope. Find your man, Grace, and I will pay half his fee if the Daughters of the American Revolution will pay the other half.
     We must have “inculcation” at any cost.
