of which the “Skating Pond” lies.
At the end of our third day’s climb,
the scientist writes in Natural His-

was a miserable one. Dead tree trunks
were the only fuel, and they were as
full of water as sponges. Our cook

The next morning we climbed about

Is there some line of work which can
be expanded as the demand for agri-
cultural, construction, and industrial
workers declines? I believe that there
is such a line, and here is my reason:
Although people can, to their own
advantage, consume only a limited
amount of food, clothing, shelter and
amusement, there is no limit to their
own development physically, intellec-
tually and spiritually. Through breed-
ing, training and character, the pos-
sibilities of every race are beyond
the dreams of the most visionary.
These possibilities put the most pro-
lessive technocrat in the ox-cart
class. Instead of one Edison, there
can easily be a million; instead of
one Einstein, there easily could be
another (pillion; and so on ad infin-
itum. It is merely a question of prop-
er breeding, training and character.
This development to which I have
referred will come about through in-
creasing the quality and numbers of
the teaching profession. My grand-
son, now in school in Wellesley, Mas-
sachusetts—is one of a class of forty-
three. Gradually, as parents and tax-
payers have more sense, the size of
these classes will be reduced to thir-
ty. twenty, ten and even smaller. I
