May Combine La juages. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 14 January 1921

May Combine La juages. It ■will be of interest not only to students of philology in general but to anyone who has wondered why Norway, Denmark and Sweden waste so much time through having three different languages to know that Adolf Noreen, long professor of philology at Upsala, has started a movement to bring the three languages more closely together. His task is stupendous, but since he is a philologist himself he may usher in the day when a drama written by a Dan£ can be played ill Stockholm without being translated.

SimpTFreason for thrift Its Practice Necessary That There May Be Margin of Production Over Consumption. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 14 January 1921

SimpTFreason for thrift Its Practice Necessary That There May Be Margin of Production Over Consumption. Is It not mere caddishnesa for one who can afford to buy and does buy silk skirts and silk stockings and automobiles, and who freely admits that he wastes money, but who Justifies himself somewhat belligerently by saying that he can afford to waste money, an’d that it is nobody’s business, to object to other people doing the same sort of thing only because he thinks the other people cannot afford the expenditures? Right down in our hearts we know that the concern is not all with the welfare of those other people who are wasting their money; it Is really a matter of Jealousy and of class distinction based on clothing—a feeling that these people have committed social misdemeanors, as when the cook duplicated her mistress’ hat And any one who preaches thrift te people on the ground that they should not have what they like for their money la simply preaching nonsensical cant Be Is rea...

PAPER FROM VENEER WASTE Possibilities In Material That Has Hitherto Been Considered to Be Without Value. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 14 January 1921

PAPER FROM VENEER WASTE Possibilities In Material That Has Hitherto Been Considered to Be Without Value. In the wood waste from veneer factories the United States forest products laboratory sees considerable raw material suitable for the manufacture of high grades of paper. The cores of many kinds of veneer logs, now used In a large part for fuel, would make excellent pulpwood. In addition, a large part of the clippings could be turned Into pulp stock with profit Among the veneer woods whose waste has paper-making possibilities are red gum, yellow poplar, cottonwood, birch, tupelo, basswood and beech. Many veneer factories cutting these species are already within ping distance of pulp mills. In certain other cases veneer factories are so grouped that they might furnish pulpwood enough to warrant the erection of a centrally located mill. Other economic factors being favorable, such a mill could profitably operate on a daily supply of veneer waste equivalent to 50 cords of ordinary pu...

“Roast” Handball Players. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 14 January 1921

“Roast” Handball Players. The execrations uttered by the indignant baseball fan against the unlucky or awkward player in America are as gentle murmurs compared with the epithets hurled by the occupants of the gallery at the contestants in the game of handball in the playgrounds of Madrid, Spain. “Rogue!” “Thief!” “Convict!” and “Idiot!” are some of the mild terms with which the players are greeted when they miss a ball or send It back In an easy position for the opponent to play it. The reason for this excitement Is the prevalent betting, in which the women spectators participate as much as the men. Professional bookmakers attend all matches, and their shouts of the odds for and against the players are mixed with the cries of the gambling spectators, until the scene resembles a bedlam.

Another Discoverer. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 14 January 1921

Another Discoverer. In an old Spanish geographical work on America published in 1552 by Francesco Lopez de Gomera, a priest of Sevilla, it is mentioned that Labrador was reached for the first time by a party of Norwegian sailors piloted by John Scolvus or Jon Skolp in 1476. The announcement was made for the first time some years ago, but it was greeted with skepticism that Columbus had been anticipated on the American shorts by any but Leif Ericson, but recently additional evidence has shown that Columbus’ visit to this country was antedated by Scolvus by 20 years and steps are being taken to urge the former’s claims for honors.

MEDALLION HELD AS CURIO Only On* of a Number Struck in 1825 U Believed to Be In Existence Today. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 14 January 1921

MEDALLION HELD AS CURIO Only On* of a Number Struck in 1825 U Believed to Be In Existence Today. To defray the expenses incident to the inauguration of John Quincy Adams as the sixth President of the United States in 1825, the inaugural committee sold medallions at $5 each. Five dollars wag considerable money in those days, and the owner of a medallion was entitled to special consideration at the inaugural ceremonies. As much as the medallions were prized 95 years ago, it is believed that only one exists today, the property of J. A. Larrick, a policeman detailed to Washington police headquarters. The Adams medallion was given to Larrick 15 years ago by Edward Murphy, w r ho is now dead. Murphy’s father, who witnessed the inauguration of President Adams, was the original purchaser of the medal. At the time he was presented with the medallion, Larrick was a policeman in the First precinct. Murphy was an aged bookkeeper. Larrick on several occasions assisted the old fellow and the meda...

Chose Wife by Her Feet. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 14 January 1921

Chose Wife by Her Feet. Reading persons’ characters from their feet Is the method Sir Robert Baden-Powell, the chief scout, has admitted he employed in choosing his wife —“The best wife I ever had.” The secretary of a boy scouts’ troop gives these examples of foot reading: “Short steps denote a fussy, swaggering little person. “Hurried, jerky steps, a nervous perm. “A slow slouch, a lazy man, a loafer. “Smooth, quick steps, an intelligent, observant person.” A boy scout observed that a stolid person often walks llatfooted. H. V. L. Ross, the walker, said: “The walker I most distrust, especially Where a woman is concerned, is the one who comes down hard on the heels. 1 believe this is a sign of a bad-tem-pered person.”—From the Continental Edition of the London Mall.

All Dressed Up. “The seashore jokes about short bathing costumes are back numbers,” said Gortlamlt Bleecker, the society ‘'leader at a Newport ball. “All the same —” Mr. Bleecker chuckled merrily. “Here’s a good one, all the same. Two Newport girls were jazzing in their 'maillots’ the other morning on the beach. You know the ‘maillot’ rig —no skirt, no stockings, no sleeves, and hardly any legs. Well, the first girl said as she Jazzed: “ ‘lt’s Jolly to have a little dance after your bath, Isn’t it?’ “‘Yes,’ said the second girl; ‘only you feel so dressed up in these maillots after last winter’s ball gowns.’ ”

MAN GIVEN UNIQUE SENTENCE English Judge on Record as Ordering Him to Serve the Preceding Day in Jail. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 21 January 1921

MAN GIVEN UNIQUE SENTENCE English Judge on Record as Ordering Him to Serve the Preceding Day in Jail. One of the most famous members of the English bench was Judge William Henry Mattie of the common pleas court of London. It is told of him, the Detroit News recalls, that one day when a jury yawned through a long series of testimony, and finally when the majority of the 12 good men and true seemed on the verge of going to sleep and the rest to have lost all Interest in the case, he abruptly closed the testimony the jury filed out. Although the evidence proved the prisoner innocent, and even the prosecuting attorney admitted it, the jury brought in a verdict of guilty. The judge being thus forced to give sentence, did so as follows: “Prisoner at the bar, your counsel thinks you innocent, the counsel for the prosecution thinks you innocent, I think you innocent. But a jury of your countrymen in the exercise of such common sense as they possess, which does not seem to be much, have foun...

Venice Once Supreme City. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 21 January 1921

Venice Once Supreme City. A few centuries ago Venice was the gateway for the commerce of all central Europe, particularly to and from the Near East. It was here that the merchants of the earth congregated and many money lenders plied their vocation of collecting usury. The Rialto bridge, made famous by Shakespeare’s “The Merchant of Venice,” still stands. This structure once afforded a meeting place for merchant princes to discuss the business of the world. In those days Venice was among thp most important of seaports. Its harbor was constantly alive with merchant ships, as well as passenger vessels. It is still a unique city, in that its streets are chiefly waterways or canals, but although still a city beautiful, and far famed for its fine arts, its glory and importance as a commercial center have passed away.
