The ‘Register’ of Age.

The present issue completes the Register's twenty-first volume. Delayed in attaining its majority by war conditions, and bearing date of October, its earlier pages went to press on the eve of Victory Day. It will fall within its scope, in future issues, to make note of Medford's participation in the great struggle, not only over seas, but of the home workers, and of the newer work which citizens of Medford may do.

It has been said ‘the nineteenth century made the [p. 95] world a neighborhood; the twentieth must make it a brotherhood.’ The neighborhood of ‘over there’ was never so apparent as on the morning of November 11th. Thanksgiving Day takes on new meaning, and the brotherhood of the future will be realized yet more as we adapt ourselves to the new conditions.

Since the Register's first issue Medford has well nigh trebled in population. Even a cursory glance at the names in the so-called Ward Book will show an almost cosmopolitan make-up. Much is said of the ‘meltingpot’ of our democracy in these later days, but unless wise counsels prevail this increase is a menace, and Medford democracy neither safe nor sane. Some particular phases of this growth have not, as yet, been considered in the Register's pages. As a matter of history they should be, by some careful, unprejudiced writer. Who will do it?
