PRESIDENT THEODORE ROOSEVELT, IN ADDRESS TO DIVORCE REFORM COMMITTEE:
THERE IS A CERTAIN TENDENCY TO EXALT THE UNESSENTIAL IN DEALING WITH OUR
PUBLIC QUESTIONS, AND PUBLIC MEN ESPECIALLY ARE APT TO GET THEIR ATTENTION
CONCENTRATED ON QUESTIONS THAT HAVE AN IMPORTANCE, BUT A WHOLLY EPHEMER-
AL IMPORTANCE COMPARED WITH THE QUESTIONS THAT GO STRAIGHT TO THE ROOT OF
THINGS. QUESTIONS LIKE THE TARIF AND THE CURRENCY ARE OF LITERALLY NO CON-
SEQUENCE WHATSOEVER COMPARED WITH THE VITAL QUESTION OF HAVING THE UNIT
OF OUR SOCIAL LIFE, THE HOME, PRESERVED.”'

[From House Report 4009, 58th Congress, 3d Session.]
