Is America three thousard miles from the clash of
nations our souls were clutched by the same horror and
grief which bore down to the dust Europe's proudest
peoples We ceased to smile and walked about the streets 1
wcudeng and worried and a palled at the magnitude of the
thmj that threatered to sweep civilization into an abyss.
Sot until the signing of the armistice did our taot and
throbbing heartstrings snap and then it was in one great
overwhelming spasm of joy. Men women and children all
over America rushed through 'he streets shooting langb-
itig and weeping their gratitude. But this joyonsness did
not could not last. We were constrained to settle back
down into the havoc wreaked by Mars. i
Even now more than a year after a mad world laid !
down its arms we have not learned again bow to smile
Fearing what is eves a worse enemy than the German
army the world waits and gropes and wonders. This most I
be changed We must learn to laugh and play. We have j
had erief enough. The time has come to forget it not I
the cause we fought for and which Our boys died for; not
the wrongs we suffered or the cause of them but the
glumness war occasioned. Weeping more will not brisg
back the dead. Worrying more win not pun the world out
of its hole of debt. Labor and laughter love and song are
what the old world needs. So get out the eld golf sticks
or the flivver and get away from things a while. Hay with
the kiddies or go to a movie after tie dishes are washed
this evening. Tell a ftmny story now and then.
Two things have menaced every nation. One has been
too much levity. That was mostly what ailed Some. Get-
t ng drunk and giving parties and stealing wives became
the national pastime. Greece played out because she took
herself too seriously. Philosophers would sit under the
Acropolis in their pajamas and argue when they should
have played pinochle occasionally and let the world wag
on. France was threatened with what ailed Some and
England with what ailed Greece until war stalked is and
struck both down.
Now it is AmrricM We dare not sit longer brooding.
Business isn't going to smash. Bolshevism isn't going to
eet us if we wffl only laugh at It more and cava at it less.
Better times win come back. They always have.
We must take new hope arise and above all play some
times and smile.

native of EI Paso and is among the

the youngest. At the time of his ap-
pointment in 1315 he was the young-
est district judge in the state being
but 28 years of age.

the present studies should be included
in the study offered the boy or the

chanical or domestic lines which
tbey may choose. This I believe will
be realized sooner or later and the
schools given a broader scope than at'

pair an automobile will go farther
with a boy in these days than the
oomulete knowledge of Homer's Illiad
or than otner literary pursuits. Not
that these should be neglected but
tbey should not constitute the bulk
of the training."

He sever let a chance to go by to bans me where he could
And IH acknowledge here that I done much I never should.
IT made me blue when he had luck; Fve spoiled a tat of days
In hopin' that he might get stack head-first in evil ways

And oae day on the street we met Dan Higgmson and I;
He kind of stopped and I stopped; too just casual agatastasd
And then the first thing that I knew he'd gripped me by the hand.
HE spoke about his little ones the difference they snake
And asked my pardon sayis' he had mads a feat's mistake
And I could see he meant it too Ms eyes were full of teao
And now the little boy's come through and ended an our fears;
And Lord it's fine to sit with Dan and smoke and joke and josh
The deceatest and manliest man I ever knew by gosh!
