SBig business needs
There is room and need for capable men
in all the allied activities of big business.
But nowhere is there greater need or greater
opportunity than in that very essential
service to all business - Insurance (Fire,
Matine and Casualty).
Insurance, as a profession, affords con-
tact with the most vital activities of the
commercial and industrial world.
The Insurance Company of North
America, the oldest American Fire and
Marine Insurance Company, has been an
integral part of big business since 1792 and
the earliest beginning of national affairs.
Out of this long experience it urges those

Another thing you missed by being
away during the holidays, mes en-

Sunday, which was "Moses of the

to enlarge on the adage that cleanli-
ness is next to godliness, or whether
he was presenting a brief against the
use of face powder by the modern
girl, we are unable to say. The fact
is we missed this particular sermon.

THE AMERICAN OF THE FUTURE
(The Boston Evening Transcript)
It has become the fashion to discuss
the probable appearance and com-
position of the Future American. That
distinguished and very clever anthro-
pologist, Dr. Henry Fairfield Osborn,
has devoted a lecture to this person-
age of the future, and he is quite in-
clined to take an optimistic view of,
him. Dr. Osborn does not deny that
the "old stock" is running out. It
would indeed be hard t& do that. Mar-I
ried couples who have two children
that survive to maturity merely re-
place themselves. Those who have
but one, fall fifty per cent short of
that; and those who have none at all
contribute a zero to the future of
America. But here is a family of
Italians, of Poles, of Slovaks, whose
hopeful offspring number eight. They
are the arithmetical equivalent of
four of the other families. They have
replaced themselves and given the
population six new comers into the
bargain. Then, with these six, there
begins the question of geometrical
progression. In a few generations the
"old stock" is swamped by this reck-
But all this is beside the mark when
it comes to the matter of the nature
and value of the future American.
It is not a question of numbers but a
question of souls. If the same or sim-
ilar circumstances figure in the train-
ing and development of the offspring,
of the Italian, the Pole and the Slovak,
the political and social result will be
very much the same. And, in Dr.
Osborn's opinion, the moulding pro-
cess wll be effectual. As an anthro-
pologist, he sees no reason why Italian
blood or Balkan blood will not, in
the long run, produce the same gen-
eral sort of Americans. And, in fact,
we can see the process having that
effect right here in New England.
Put white Portuguese, Poles, Italians
on a New England hill farm, and let
them make the identical struggle there
that our 'Yankee forefathers made,
with the same-or a better-district
school at hand, and the same Yankee-
English in which to formulate their
ideas, and they look and act the same
old Yankee part.
