Let It Happen to You
When Mary Twain edited a news-
paper in Missouri one of his sub-
scribers wrote him that he had
found a spider in his paper and
wished to know whether it meant
good or bad luck. Twain replied:
“Finding a spider in your paper is
neither good luck or bad. The
spider was merely looking over our
paper to see which merchant was
not advertising, so that he could
go to the store, spin his web across
the door and lead a life of undis-
turbed peace ever afterward.”

......... . . .
Statisticians estimate that 60,000,-
000 citizens of the United States
have no birth certificates to prove
that they are natives of this country.
Yet in this critical era almost any
person is liable to be called upon
for such proof.
In view of this, the war, navy
and commerce departments in
Washington have requested state
vital statistics departments to pre-
pare to issue certificates when pre-
sented with the necessary evidence.
Texas has been among the slow-
est of the states in the creation of
machinery for birth registration. 1
Our larger cities, three or four de-
cades ago, established vital statis-
tical departments, but in the small
towns and rural districts, birth re-
cording is comparatively new, tndT ‘
the machinery is still far from
ing adequate. — Dallas Times-Her»
