First: Baby is supremely seh
fish. He’s toobusy attending to
his own affairs to bother about
the comfort of any one else—
and, he’s exactly right; if more
people attended to their own
business we’d soon have a better
race of people.

with a water-cooled motor. So
long as he is comfortable he will

industrial countries, especially in
our own. Statistics show that in
