There are people who have no serious mo ments and it is useless to attempt to change them, but for thoseywho are doing serious work some form of re laxation is neceksary lest they become warped and the effort grow tedious. brings a strain which puts people on edge and they are more easily peeved consequently. Most of the big deals in business are put through in club house, at dinners or on the golf links. There is under such circumstances just enough of some other element other than business to produce the finest consideration. The more we know of the right kind of people the more we trust them and the greater our confidence we have in their ability or it may be that we need contact to discover their weak ness which may keep us from getting hurt. The presence of club houses all over the world is not the result of foolish impulse, but rather an ac knowledgement of man's natural im pulse to rest after his work is ...

When. you aee a person out of the game because of the accident of ill health it ill becomes you to keep ask ing them if they do not feel well and if the situation is not a joke. It is foolish without any saving grace of humor. It is a cruelty which amounts to sav agery to taunt them about your own good health and of how you were never down telling them you think it is un necessary to be sick. ,, ftc.w*V Most people go to bed because they cannot help it, not for a joke, and it ill becomes any person claiming common sense to taunt them. It is a grim, Unsatisfactory condition which con fronts most folks who are in bed.

fBRWtl^WSJ PTOPas^gr vrv ,-^.v ,=. HEALTH HINTS. A. J. Booker, M. D. The passage of the "literacy testim migration" bill is going to have a great effect upon the future of the Negro. Any act which is wide in its scope will work a hardship on some classes, while others will be greatly benefited. In the passage of this bill there was a backward step so far as the open door policy of this country is concerned the attitude is quite con trary to all which America has meant to the downtrodden of Europe. Any thought ful observer must have noticed that we have not had opportunity to develop a nation al type, neither sentimentally nor physically, and that many of our problems are made more difficult by the polyglot ideas of our citizens. Too, it must be remembered that many disseminators of advice are not citizens, but people who live here on account of the so-called "easy pick ins" which this country affords. So evident are these facts that great ef fort is being made to educate foreign ers...
