HOW MANY PEOPLE DO YOU KNOW?
Back in the time of Adam, it was no exaggeration for him to say that
he knew everybody in his world. There was only his wife and children,
and he knew everybody worth knowing. .There wasn't anybody else.
However, as the world grew more populous, as more and more people
came to settle on the earth, it became increasingly difficult for everybody
o know everybody else. And because the task seemed such a hopeless one,
t was abandoned, and people cared only to know those with whom they
had direct contact in business or personal relations.
Nowadays we haven't time to know people. We have our acquaint-
ances in the business world, and we make our conversations with them as
brief as possible. In our personal life we have a few friends, with whom
we foregather once in a while for a game of cards; or an evening at the
heater, and many acquaintances, whose existence means little or nothing
o us and to whom ours means the same.
With every advance of civilization, this condition of affairs seems to
become more acute. In the busy life of the average city business man,
here is little room for personal friendships, of the kind that characterizes
a small country town. In a large apartment house in any big city, the man
who knows his neighbor to any degree of intimacy is a rare specimen; in
most cases he will not even be able to tell the name of the family next
And all the time we hear that man is a social animal, that our society
is a co-operative one, that it is only because each one helps in the work
>f the world that any of us are able to get along. It is a beautiful theory,
and a true one, and yet we do not seem to take it literally and concretely.
One of the best ways to know and understand life is to know and under-
stand people. If success in life were measured by the number of one's
friends, instead of the amount of one's fortune, perhaps there would be
fewer failures. "He travels farthest who travels alone," said the poet, but
te is wrong. A man who cannot make friends is not the man to reach the
On the Other Hand-
We Found This in the Mail-Box

Hon. Sir:-Your much discussed
question of some time back concern-
ing the mysterious source of shine on
our dear things' shoes was quite in-
nocently answered by one of them last
night. Having keen sense for se-
curing the solutiogn to unfathomed
mysteries we casually asked a sweet
child while canoeing why she contin-
ually showed us her shoes. We were
surprised to find that she admitted that
it was her shoes she was showing,
and for the reason that she had just
given them their first shine, adding
that, "All the girls of the house come
to use my brush to shine their shoes."
We have now found out that the rea-
son why our loved ones are so rarely
seen within the environs of our classic
Grecian parlors is because there has
been placed in each house a brush to
be used on Sundays only so as to
avoid the newly imposed 15-cent tax.
But what we started out to say was
how is it that we notice that cats fight
so much more vigorously at night than
they do in the daytime?

Lines to Another Chubbite
"Faint heart ne'er won fair lady-"
At least that's what they say;
Also that, "Where there's life there's
You'll meet her some fine day.
Pen sonnets to her eyebrow,
Moon round about her chair;
'Tis possible she'll smile at you,
More likely she'll just stare.
By the way, Ly, you want to be sure
and get your poetic license for they

After much persuasion and after
Iweeks of earnest endeavor we have
solved a mystery of .mysteries. One
of the best known boarding houses
has given us the secrets of many of
its famous gastronomic atrocities,
Here they are:
Take one loaf of well moulded bread,
bind it and gag it and shave it all
over with a corn razor. Then pound
it to a pulp with a croquet mallet,
chop it into squares with a nail file,
and serve smothered in shaving
Lima Bean Steak
Take 12 unsuspecting lima beans
and beat them into insensibility with
a tack hammer. Add enough fish glue
and broken glass to flavor, place the
mass on the' stove until itsimmers,
then serve on blotting paper floating
in shoe blacking.
Dessert a la Ann Arbor
Take the breast of a milk fed wa-
termelon, well larded, pack full of
carpet tacks, add finely chopped pipe
cleaners in red ink, and serve cov-
ered with liquid court plaster.
Crab Meat Cocktail
Take a pair of old tennis shoes, run
them through a clothes wringer and
let them soak for three days in bay
rum. After they are thoroughly de-
composed add shredded flypaper and
garlic to taste and serve with library
Of course all this reminds you of the
old gag, how do you make hash? You

The Summer Girl
The summer girl we gladly scan,
We look her o'er;
We find she wears a coat of tan,
And not much more.
The summer girl is with us now
And shows some style;
She wears a string of colored beads,
And pleasant smile.
---Hastings (Neb.) Tribune.
The summer girl is here today
In filmy drape;
The sun shines brightly that we may
Behold her shape.

The summer girl a-bathing goes,
She does look cute.
And in her vanity case she totes
Her bathing suit. H. W.

WHERE THE FAULT LIES
We asked the president of Yale university, Arthur T. Hadley, whether
usic. is getting a square deal in the American colleges. He answered,
o. Otir purpose in putting the question was not to receive authoritative
)rroboration of a belief that we knew to be founded on fact, but to arrive
t the cause of this condition. How does Dr. Hadley explain it? Very
igenuously. "In this, as in many other matters, the colleges reflect the
emand of the American reading public; and the American reading public
as not learned to estimate music at its full value." It is not wholly clear
us, from this brief statement, whether Dr..Hadley rests the larger bur-
en of blame upon the college or the "reading public." However, his words
re an admission that our seats of learning, instead of moulding and direct-
ig popular opinion, permit themselves to "reflect the demand" of that
;inion. Through what subtle process do college educators gauge the
imper and desires of that fluid thing called the public mind? Seemingly
ey accomplish, without elaborate machinery, what the astutest diplomats
nd politicians find a distracting task.
For our part, we do not believe that the American people, whether
ley have learned to estimate music at its full value or no, would in any
ay, shape or manner oppose giving music its rightful place in the college
irriculum. Indeed, it is far; more likely, to our mind, that the majority
ould applaud so sensible a step. It is just about time that a halt was
illed upon this easy labelling of our masses as "provincial" or "back-
ard" or "uncouth." Perhaps they are merely unconsulted in matters of
is kind. But if they are egregiously benighted in cultural questions, it
certainly not to them that our college educators should look for guid-
ice. Such misplaced reliance is an abject confession of weakness and im-
otence. When American educators conquer their timorousness and con-
irvatism, then will music get a square deal in the colleges. Unless the
eading public" conceives a sudden interest in such diverting topics as
irricula and informs their makers where and why, reforms are in order.
