The cust3hiary charge of .continen-
tai artists who tour this counti-y is
that the American public has no soul1
for art. The average American has
a horror of anything "highbrow."t
How many Americans, except college1
professors, can honestly sand intelli-
gently enjoy philosophy, painting or
the 'opera? Ninety percent Of all
American men would rather see Jack
Dempsey than hear Mischa Elman.
Any ordinary college man would rath-
er see a football. game than hear
a debate, and the college girl would
rather ,#o to a dance than spend the
evening contemplating' Ibsen.
But why should the American be
expected to ie° any other than "low-'
brow?"'rThe original ancestry of the
American nation was of anything but'
an artistically creative group.,rThe
jails and almshouses of England were
drained until 50,000 criminals o1' var-
ied types: were imported into America
(Iuring the colonial ,period. One-half
of all the white immigrants to Amer.
ica were unable to pay their own
expenses. The early South was large-!
ly peopled by criminals and ne'er-do-j
wells, while Franklin said of the Ger-.
man immigrants of Pennsylvania that
they were "generally the most stu-
pid of their own nation." In the mid-!
Ie colonies, the settlers were chiefly
commercial adventurers, bankrupt
nobles, independent servants, or
mediocre bourgeoise: In the, bay col.
kinics, the land was peopled: by relig-
ious fanatics-a group of men who
came here for religious fre dom, lhut
who, after they had settled wvere the;
most intolerant and narrow-mindedsl
of' American colonists.
Immigration since the colonial lpe-
riod has not been of an especially su-
perior type. The steady, plodding im-G
migrant has given solidarity to theI
nation, ,but he has not contributed
to the development of American intel-'
ligence or to the ap~preciation of art{
andl literature. Since 1890, the rise
of industrialism and the fanatical de-~

Ihis ev(,ning in accordanice with the
dition, the First of the annual Sen-
sings is tob~e held.- In years gone
thtse functions havek been well at-
ided and because of the importance
d congeniality that are attached to
n, it is imperative that the attl-

stones, happy -go-lucky, a~e-nspirin ,
colorful iw~anderers of the ages.
But a new tribe of gypsies has ar .9
rived, a modern set ,of higher repute
but equal attractiveness. These mod-
ern gypsies have replaced the prairie
wagon with the autocar or some othi-_'
er machine equally well fittedt to bear'
them through life.. t1h1?.y may I*
found during the summer months. in
the northern tourists camps, and to
the winter they have'migrated to"'tbe
south. Their cars are. equipped with'
every convenience of a small apart-,
ment; they carry their kitchen ettew
with' them. Theirs is the life of the
modern gypsy, the twentieth century~
Strange as it may seem, the mecm-;
ters of this band are not inconse.
Iquential. Many families have adopted'
the auto trail as the best road to un-
failing health. Others have found it
the most economical way to avoid the
problem of high rent. Still others
have enployed it to satiate a desire 1
to. see the world and to enjoy them-]
selves in the seeing. A tourist along
the Lincoln highway to the west coast
will be surprised' as he notes the nuni-
her of "house cars" taking the same
course. They traverse the paths of.
winding canyons; they survive the
trials of heat and sand; they are the

station to you and vice-versa." So
saying, he dlid and passed on, laugh-
So the fire-hydlrant became a po0-
tential filling-station and the filling-
station gavo pur.e water undefiled by
gasoline a.4 hitherto. But neither the
proprietor nor 'the auto-owners no-
ticed that.
But it came about one dlay a laz~e
broke out*' in the corner fruit-story:
and .the firemen came and fastened
a hose-line to the fire-hydrant wich
was a potential filling-station.
Then the're was the devil to pay!
