THE WAR IN EUROPE
Large Number of Women in
Excess of the Men is Re-
garded as a Serious Do-
VIENNA Oct. 27. (Correspondence
of The Associated Press.) Whether
or not Europe will be obliged to
change its marriage laws as the re-
sult of the war is a question which
has recently occupied sociologists in
the Central States. Most of them are
of the opinion that material modifi-
cation must ensue; a few think that
legalized polygamy must be establish-
ed In order to provide for the surplus
of women which two years of warfare
has made one of the problems of all
The total population of the states
at War the non-Arian dlements of
Russia excepted is roughly 373000000
of which according to best sources
188000000. are women and lSo.000000
men. For the countries of Europe
where .exact statistics are available
the proportion is 105 maids to 107 -females.
For Europe this lanve in nor--mal
times an excess of three. miHtoh'
females of which numbed a third
would be marriageable. . :;
To this million of woffla who ai
present can find no huiutl for. the
reason that nature whi'e ansuriugan
excess in the birth of males jierinltjs
more of them to die in infancy wifl
be added at least eight milttops whom

Economically the probkiaj lias ben

But sociologists point out tttal xcut
the state mokes provisions ending to
avert this a certain natural 'aw
would increase greatly 4he fate of II-
lecitimacv of children which even
now. is a serious matter. C
At the conclusion of thfe Thirty
Years War similar conditions pro-
vailed. It was met in many of - the
Central European states by mnkin
polygamy legal. When tlm proportion
of males and females bad been re
adjusted by the coming of later gener
ations these laws were repealed..
For the time being the European
parliaments are too occupied with
matters affecting the continuation of.
the war bin expressions on the sub
ject agree that some sort of legisla
tion w ill be necessary.
Several writers point out' that it
will take two generations before the
old social equilibrium is re-establish
ed. The-tendency of men to marry
women younger than they themselves
are is held responsible for this. I's-
ually the man marries a woman from
three to five years his junior and
some author uies fear that greater
choice whifch the- excess of women
will give. viH" decidedly foster this
inclination. so that only the girl who
today is from twelve to thirteen year?
old can hope to be the subject of

DEATH KATE IX UMTEI) STATES
COMPARED WITH FOREIGN
CINCINNATI 0. Oct. 27. The
deaths. of 15000 women in this coun
try in 1013 from conditions caused by
childbirth Avas the chief argument
given by Dr. Graco L-. Jleigs Chief of
the Division of Hygiene of the Federal
Children's Bureau in a paper read to
day before the American Public Health
Association urging renewed efforts
to convince women and their husbauds
of the need of skilled service for mar
ternity. Approximately 7000 of the
total' loss f life during childbirth was
due to childbed fever alio declared.
'Ju 1913 the death rate per 100000
population from all conditions caused
by childbirth was but little lower than
from typhoid fever" said Dr. Meigs
"and this rate would be 'almost quad
rupled if only the group of the- pop
ulation which cau .be affected' women
of childbearing age are considered. In
1913 childbirth caused more deaths
among women 1" to 44 yoars old than
any other disease except tuberculosis
uniy two- ot a group of mteen im

rates from this cause than the regis
