New York, N. Y.—If you're the

Too many of us are dogged
by excessive ambition or a sense
of failure, declares Dr. Matthew

disquieted by the feeling that we
must get more, do more or be
more—that we are inadequate in
To still a this uneasiness of
what he calls false ambition, Dr.
Chappell advises giving more
thought to the basic things ex
pected of us—and stop worrying
about the rest.
Few of us are required to lead
the nation or become powers in
labor or industry. But we are ex

great wealth, but merely to pro

become great athletes. It is suff

need we all set out to be reform

injustices of life. But we should
understand the development °'
our own emotional attiudes and
control them in such a way that
we do not add to the ills of the
