A MEDAL HONORING THE ALLIES AND COMMEMORATING THE ENTRANCE OF AMERICA INTO THE WAR This medal is issued 10 its contributors by the American Fund for French Wounded. That organization's fine philanthropy is sending supplies to over 3,000 hospitals in France. Originally the medal bore only the design seen on the left; with the entrance of America into the war the design seen at the right was placed on the reverse side. The motto of the obverse, “ Do Right and Fear No Man,” is from one of George Washington's dress swords. The various symbols of the Allies—the Ship for Great Britain and her Colonies, the Cock for France, the Cross for Italy, the Belgian Lion appealing to England and Fraņce, etc.—appear on this side. On the reverse is the shield of the United States, and across its bar is inscribed the date, April 6, 1917, on which the United States joined the Entente Allies and pledged itself to fulfill, with them, the ideal expressed in Lincoln's words, “ That Government by the

People Shall Not Perish,” the words forming the motto. The artist who designed the medal is Mr. Spicer Simson

Mr. Vernon L. Mangun, Superintendent of Public Schools in Macomb, Illinois, sends us this picture (Mr. Mangun stands at the extreme right of the photograph) with the following comment :

I am sending herewith a picture of my class in Social Problems in which The Outlook
is used mainly. (Sixteen pupils, it will be seen, are using The Outlook.) It will be
noticed in the picture that each of the pupils has affixed a one-cent stamp so that

the magazine will reach the soldiers. This class is in the junior-senior high school.
The above photograph and letter form an interesting illustration of a widespread and growing friendship
between The Outlook and students and teachers of schools in all parts of the country.

The high school boys and girls of to-day will be to-morrow the makers of Presidents, Governors, and Public Opinion. Even a greater responsibility will be theirs, for in the new National relationships after the Great War they will have a large share in making International Law.

Are there young people in your family or in your circle of friends ? Do you want them to take an intelligent interest in current events and problems of the life of the world ?

Can they have a better helper in developing such an interest than The Outlook ?

It gives the important news from authoritative sources in readable form “with clear, forceful, and well-digested comments on the affairs of the world at this crucial time,” to quote the words of a Chicago man of affairs in a recent letter renewing his subscription.

DEMOCRACY IN WAR Alexis de Tocqueville, that famous French traveler, historian, and philosopher, in his “ Democracy in America,” has the following to say regarding the probable result when democracy goes to war:

* I am therefore of the opinion that, when engages more risk of defeat than any other nation ; 5%2x7% inches in size, just right to be carried conveniently in the but it ought not easily to be cast down by pocket for frequent, consultation.

When a war has at length, existing maps of the Western Front are valueless because they are not by its long continuance, roused the whole indexed, or because they do not contain the smaller places. Neither and ruined their minor undertakings, the objection applies to this new map, just published, so complete that it same passions which made them attach so enables one to read the newspapers understandingly. much importance to the maintenance of peace will be turned to arms. War, after it has destroyed all modes of speculation, becomes itself the great and sole speculation, to which all the ardent and ambitious desires which equality engenders are exclusively directed. Hence it is that the selfsame democratic nations which are reluctant to engage in hostilities sometimes perform prodigious achievements when once they have taken the field. ...

“ Thus, while the interests and tastes of the members of a democratic community divert them from war, their habits of mind fit them for carrying on war well; they soon make good soldiers, when they are aroused from their business and their enjoyments.

"If peace is peculiarly hurtful to democratic armies, war secures them advantages which no other armies ever possess, and these advantages, however little felt at first, cannot fail in the end to give them the victory. An aristocratic nation, which in a contest with a democratic people does not succeed in ruining the latter at the outset of the war, always runs a great risk of being conquered by it."

Now de Tocqueville was a close observer of the tendencies in men and governments ; he perhaps saw more of the
