ARE THE JAPANESE REALLY EFFICIENT? Not If You Judge Them By Their Telephones, Says Julian Street [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 3 June 1921
ARE THE JAPANESE REALLY EFFICIENT? Not If You Judge Them By Their Telephones, Says Julian Street Although the Western World has begun to take for granted that the Japanese have reached an enviable position in the world because of an alleged efficiency in all matters, a close inspection of actual facts shows up the Jap as almost childish. Writing for McClure’s Magazine in an article entitled. “Are the Japanese Efficient?” Julian Street,, noted traveler and writer, gives many instances of stupid Japanese inefficiency, particularly as to telegraphs, telephones and transportation. “Tokyo, with a transportation problem which ought easily to be solved, has utterly inadequate street car service,” says Mr. Street. “The rush hou: there is only saved from being as terrible as the rush hour in New York by the lack of subterranean features. “But it is in all matters having to do with communications that Japanese inefficiency is- most strikingly brought to the notice of strangers. The postal ser...

ADRIAN ONLY ENGLISH POPE Is Said to Have Been Elevated to High Office Contrary to His Own inclinations. [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 3 June 1921
ADRIAN ONLY ENGLISH POPE Is Said to Have Been Elevated to High Office Contrary to His Own inclinations. Pope Adrian IV was by birth an Englishman, and the only one of that nation who ever occupied the papal throne. He was a native of Langley, in Hertfordshire. He was born before A. D. 1100. His real name was Nicholas Breakspear. He is said to have left England as a beggar, and to have become a servant as lay brother in a monastery near Avignon, in France, where he studied with such diligence that in 1137 he was elected abbot. His merits soon became known to Pope 111, who made him cardinalbishop of Albia in 1146, and sent him two years later as his legate to Denmark and Norway, where he converted many Inhabitants to Christianity. Soon after his return to Rome, Nicholas was unanimously chosen pope against his own Inclination, in November, 1154, Henry II of England, on hearing of his election, sent the abbot of St. Albans and three bishops to Rome with his congratulations.
Must Keep on “Making Good.” [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 3 June 1921
Must Keep on “Making Good.” Life is an everlasting struggle. Nothing but the keenest attention to its great problems will bring lasting success. There are many that gain temporary attention and they think they have made a name for themselves. The fact is there are thousands of others with just as much head striving for a place in the sun. They are watching every loophole for an opportunity. Often the fellow who starts right with a small lead can achieve almost anything he sets out Jo. So folks have learned to take advantage of everything that turns up or that they can turn up. That means you are never’safe in resting on past laurels. It’s a case of making good eternally or falling dow r u before you have finished your course.
