THE GOLD STAR
We are creatures of vacillating tastes and purposes. One year ago
ing but war dominated our feelings and actions. Now even the mention
lior sounds bromidic. We laugh harder than before, continue our own
-apportioned living, congratulate ourselves that the world is right again.
if we forget too soon the beneficient influence of the dead, then the
ting of the war-unselfishness and tolerance-will be lost.
'here is no finer an appeal and no more symbolic a sermon than that
>wed by the gold star. It has a practical significance. It is the ultra
shievement, made brilliant by the fact that the g'eatest characters were
d upon to make the greatest sacrifices,-those who seemed to have
. life to its utmost but passed through it by the shortest way.
'It is better to die for something worth while than to live for nothing
1," were the candid words of one who fell. What was this something
Ih while? That depended upon the individual interpretation. But this
now, it was not against the name aristocracy or plutocracy that they
ht. The name meant nothing. It was against tyranny as they had seen
:pressed everywhere. It was a call from the meek and the oppressed.
Let us obliterate the Prussian from our own living. Let us have no
uragement to offer the egotist, the self-opinioiated, the self-inflated.
as against such as these that the war was waged. Let us not succumb
e domineering individual just to gain a slothful peace and a little praise
popularity ourselves. Let us cease to live for nothing much at all.
[here is a soul of democracy, and there is also its empty shell. That is
nessage of the gold star.
MIDDLE CLASS OPINION
[n a book on the theater, Clayton Hamilton divides all people into
o classes according to their mental attitude toward any subject- a lower
, a middle class, and an upper class. "The lower class," he says, "is
)osed oil those people who know nothing at all about the subject in
tion; the middle class is composed of those people who know a little
t the subject, but not much; and the upper class is composed of those
le who know a great deal about it. Any single individual may hold .a
r class opinion on one subject, a middle class opinion on another, and
pper'class opinion on a third."
A. man may be an expert in some things, he may know a little about
y things, and he knows nothing at all about a great many. Hamilton
es his theory to examples in literature and the drama. But it applies
Mly woll to all walks in life, and the finding is that the great mass
ople are of the middle class variety. It is always the.middle class opin-
which, because the majority entertains it, has the greatest authority
.e world, and which is most assertive in its doctrines. The people who
r nothing about the subject usually are content to folow the majority,
e those who know a great deal about it are usually silent in the face of
lar thought. They are the cultured, educated people, as a rule, and
r than conflict with the masses, are content to keep their opinons to
Middle class opinion decides the conventions, prescribes the laws, is
yrant of our moIern civilization, and very often it says "Do this" to
thing which upper class opinion would call absurd, and the lower
foolish. But the majority rules, and the two minority classes follow,
good-naturedly, the other tolerantly. One has not the will to resist,
ther would not care to take the trouble to. Perhaps it is best to let
le class opinion rule, for the majority is at least the sqfest.
But it is the upper class, the experts, the ones who know a great deal
t the subject who have been the real leaders in the long run." Middle
opinion rules for the day, but its rule is based on the upper class opin-
of the past. Middle class opinion laughed at the telegraph, the tele-
e, the steamship, the airplane. But upper class opinion stuck silently
grimly to the task, and succeeding middle class opinion gets the full
People belong to the lower class because circumstances are against
learning. They belong to the upper class because their natures are
fied with nothing less. The middle class is composed of those in be-
n. Only a few reach the heights. Many, though there should be none,
n the lower class. The others are the middle class-and that is the
that most of us can hope for. But our ideal, at least, should be to have
pper class opinion.

Greatest Living Beauty, (So Says
the Paper) On Golf
"One of the great benefilts of golf
playing to a woman is that it teaches
concentration. The eye must be kept
upon the ball, not before it is struck
or while it is leaving the sward, but
after it has left the ground."
It would be a great delight to see
Lina play. She doesn't keep her eye
on the ball at all, only after it has
left the ground. This must solve a
problem for many golufer. Just think,
you can light a cigarette or like Lina,
powder the nose while the ball is be-
ing struck, as she so tersely puts it.
It must be a great sight to see Lina
cavort on the tee. She probably
drives a tennis racket and putts with
a croquet mallet.

you imagine a bird who just got out
and came home and his wife dished
him up slumgullion and prunes?
Some of those prunes ought to have
chevrons on them. Just think what
they've been through. Back and forth
from mess line to mess line and still
they hold up.
Well we know of about four million
men who won't guy any of this chow.
And that leaves out the navy.
