The doctrine of strenuosity,
so loudly proclaimed and so

Not only weekly, but daily, body

Both labor and leisure has •

dustry; while much of what is
lofty and noble in thought and
vision comes to us in the sweet

The Man And The Machine
Man is the victim of his own
devices. He builds and equips
a railroad or a hotel or a depart-
ment store or a bank, and where
is he? You will find him on the
treadmill day in and day out,
proud of his achievement, as
h>* should be, but a slave to the
machine he has builded. And
not only he, but all who come t"
be dependents in i:r way c
that piece of machinery. W
who took on applaud the et
ficieney of the machine \\
