Aside from the various ways in which women can assist in war times--whether along economical lines, as Red Cross nurses, in gardening, census taking, filling places of men who go to the front--they have an important place in stimulating the men who will be needed to go forth in battle. They have this important part to enact now. As was pointed out in one of Sergeant Bunde's talks at the Playhouse this week now is the time that men are vitally needed. It is too late to wait to the last moment to raise troops. The first line of defense must be prepared at once. If this is not done it means the sending of untrained men against cohorts of men trained and experienced in warfare, and the consequence will be needless slaughter. . . .
