Discussing his mother, Elizabeth Zamost Julius, the publisher recalled, "My mother.
She hated persecution, prejudice and oppression. We do not know their literary tastes, nor what they encouraged their children to read.
It is quite possible that the Talmud was regularly read in the Julius home, as Emanuel's mother was descended from a long line of rabbis. The pamphlets cost 10 cents each. In leaving home at the age of 15, was he trying to escape from his immigrant Jewish background? In later years, the agnostic Kansas publisher briefly described his parents, yet failed to mention that they were Jewish immigrants from the Ukraine.
Indeed, he said nothing of his own Jewish heritage. In the publisher and his wife collaborated on Dust , a novel about the grim life of Kansas farmer Martin Wade, his wife Rose, and son Billy. Instead, the boy read a book at the town library, ate dinner at a restaurant, and went to a movie. Returning home in the evening, Billy declared independence from his mother and father in the following scene:. Martin still kept silent, his eyes looking over the newspaper wide open, staring, the muscles of his jaw relaxed. I read a book, and then I took a walk, and then I dropped in at the restaurant for a bite, and then I walked around some more, and then I went to a movie.
Martin, slowly putting down his paper, remarked without stressing a syllable:. Bill moved towards the parlor, as though to obey. At the door he stopped a moment and said: "I wasn't arguing; I was just answering mother. She wanted to know. I'll do my chores in the morning, but that's all. From now on nobody can make me do anything. At the age of 15, both Emanuel Haldeman-Julius and fictional character Billy Wade voluntarily left home to earn their own livings. Marcet reported that her husband's visits home were "so infrequent as to be negligible. The young journalist joined the Socialist party in the same year.
Shortly after beginning work with the Call , however, he accepted a job in Milwaukee with another socialist paper, The Daily Leader. Employed by the Leader for two years, Emanuel wrote articles on a variety of subjects, including politics, art, literature, and philosophy. In July, , he was rehired by his old employer the New York Call to become its Sunday editor and drama critic. When Emanuel joined the Appeal to Reason , it was America's leading socialist newspaper; in , it enjoyed a circulation of over , Apparently denying his devotion to socialism, the Kansas publisher stated in In my younger days I was a Socialist journalist.
I mean this in a political and something of a fanatical sense. All young men who dream dreams are fanatics. When I was in my twenties Socialism was a more important issue, under that name, in America than it is now. People were interested in Socialism. It was being talked about. People wanted to read about it. The one intelligent program, worthy of the scientific attitude which is gaining more and more respect in the modern age, is that our large and economically essential industries should be placed under social control; production should be fairly in harmony with distribution; our great machines should be constantly in operation and the people should be permitted to consume the output of these machines.
There should be reasonable, socially efficient, continuous and secure exchange of labor.

Girard, in Crawford county, was a small town located in the southeastern corner of Kansas some 12 miles from Pittsburg and approximately the same distance from the Missouri state line. In the Girard population was slightly over 3, The opening of deep coal mines in the 's encouraged laborers of diverse na-.
Austrians, Germans, Englishmen, Scots, Frenchmen, and other groups settled there. After large numbers of Italians moved into the area. He wrote in In different sections, different prejudices are cherished. In the East, there is a greater spirit of personal liberty, free thought and sophistication; but there is more stress laid upon social etiquette and what one shall wear.
The reverse is true, say, in Kansas. It has not the free attitude of the East toward one's opinions and one's amusements; though I do not mean to imply that one cannot live freely, if one will, even in Kansas; but what is pleasantly true of Kansas is the prevalence of a more easy, democratic social atmosphere. Her father, a wealthy Girard banker, was educated as a physician at the University of Leipzig. From to she acted in stock companies in the United States and Canada under the name of Jean Marcet.
With the death of her parents, she left the stage to take over the family bank, the oldest bank in Crawford county. Marcet was a "modern woman. According to Marcet, her belief in female equality was the reason she and her husband hyphenated their surnames. She explained in , "On Emanuel's part the addition of my name to his own was purely a response to an earnest wish of mine; a generous gesture acknowledging our full partnership. Moreover, she regarded Marcet as her favorite niece.
Whether Jane Addams was in fact the prime cause of the hyphenated surname, it cannot be denied that she exerted a remarkable influence in Girard. It was at her insistence that the Girard Public Library was founded in the 's. In Marcet established a miniature Hull House for miners' children at Radley, a small town east of Girard. Her purpose in providing baseball diamonds and holding dances at the house was to keep the children out of the local pool halls. In Marcet provided her husband the funds to buy out the Appeal to Reason. Mencken's skill as a debunker, he thought one of Mencken's major failings was that the Baltimore editor basically "hated people.
Marcet had more than a financial interest in this publishing venture. Besides the play Embers and the novel, Dust , she and her husband collaborated on another novel, Violence Both novels were translated into Russian. She wrote articles for such magazines as the Atlantic Monthly , and traveled to the Soviet Union in to report on the progress of the Russian Revolution for one of her husband's many publications, the American Freeman.
In addition to her professional career, Marcet cared for her daughter Alice, son Henry, and foster daughter Josephine. Our farm is a jolly place with a cabin for the colored help, a bunk house for the two men who help on the farm. A little play house, slipper[y] slide and stream for the children, and best of all, in the winter, in the sunny nursery, a Montessori school to which the youngsters of the neighborhood come and which I teach myself. The little calves, colts and pigs arrived in a delightfully exciting succession and it always amuses us when we realize that we get more when we sell a calf than when we sell a story.
Both believed that women had the right to an independent existence outside of marriage and the family. The publisher and his wife continually fought against illiberalism, which they viewed as "the disposition of narrowness and ill will that impels man to interfere unfairly, officiously, mischievously with the lives of his fellow men. The Kansas editor declared in In Why I Believe in Freedom of Thought , the Girard publisher stated, "History impressively shows us the dangers of authority and superstition. It is by observing and reasoning and building carefully upon the facts of life that man progresses in civilized aims.
As "unreasonable" authority pretending to represent truth and "goodness," bunk took a variety of forms. It often encouraged men to resort to violence rather than to resolve problems rationally. The editor noted that bunk never appealed to the people's intelligence, but actually encouraged their provincialism and mediocrity. For example, he regarded motion pictures as "a tremendous force in holding down the American mind to the level of the obvious, cheap, superficial and essentially unimaginative.
Based on emotional falsehood rather than rational truth, the "lurid prophecies of a debunked world" always asked such ominous questions as "What would a town be without churches? O[u]r average intelligence registers about thirteen years. In , he noted, bunk had enlisted American doughboys in a war to "make the world safe for democracy. Censorship laws told them what they were not permitted to read. The prohibition amendment told them what they could not drink.
Federal and state laws demanded severe punishment for persons found guilty of distributing literature specifically describing various methods of birth control. Yet even though the Girard publisher stated that "the people are children," he added, "It is not as hopeless as it seems. In fact, he was convinced that the America of the 's, embarrassed by its own ignorance, really wanted to be enlightened.
They are becoming more intelligently sensitive. They care more about the good opinion of the world. They do not wish to appear foolish, and many who were not intellectuals, who had no deep convictions about the issue, were ashamed of the ludicrous show of ignorance and bigotry in Dayton, Tennessee. I might have turned to the manufacture of chewing gum, or something equally free from intellectual dynamite.
