THE NEW SIMPLICITY
Streaming back from the fields of
!rance, in increasing numbers, are
coming the khaki-clad men we bid
farewell to but a few months ago.
Every transport brings them by the
hunudreds, cheering with the same old
cheers, laughing the same old laughs.
The boys whose hands we grip once
ygain, no matter how the same old
smile lights up their faces, despite the
same old, informal greeting, are not
the boys we knew. They are changed,
nearly all of them so changed that,
could we get benea'th the veneer of
their old" manner, we should scarcely
recognie them. They are different,
and the war has made them so. The
intimacy with real, naked truths, the
suffering, the sacrifices, the homesick-
ness, the heartaches, have all had
their effect. Those who left us as boys
return as men. The war, has made
'In many cass, too, the war has tak-
en from them what they were wont
to call ambition. Intimacy with life
and sudden death has taught them
that the ambition they cherished is
;lot the beginning and the end of a
happy life. Some of us may deplore
this attitude; but we do not under-
stand as they understand.
They are soon to find their places
again in the niches of our business,
professional, and industrial world.
Just nw they are happy enough in
being home. And, if the prophecy of
many, many of them comes true, they
are going to be content with the
simple, unpretentious things of life.
They will be quitecontent to let their
lives be molded and shaped by sim-
And this simplicity will not be con-
fined to them alone. It is going to
spread and spread, until all of us
will be living on the new plane. Sim-
plicity is the new keynote.
A recent exposure showed that the
booze ring of Ohio punished its mem-
bers for s-quealing. But how could it
play square with anyone.
Sir Walter Scott used to plan Li
novels while he shaved, says an ad.
In other words, he was some shaver.

League of Notions," may not have 1

delicately at a hot ater bottle. A
hen hawk hovered over the 'whiffle-
tree and Mrs. Johnson dozing on the }
piazza with a copy of the Bee Keep-
ers' Journal in her waffle hand was
dreaming of her youth in the hoe cake
belt of southern Indiana. Suddenly
she awakened. There was something
in the wind. Something was burning.
A quick glance. It was not the suc-
cotash in the chafing dish, the door,
mat or the celluloid dog on the what-
not. Ha. Woman's intuition.
"Hiram, Hiram, be you hiding back]

pipe again?" , Her voice was clear and
had a dangerous ring.
