• False Reports
We were talking one evening
about the World War and a gen
tleman who nad been a very gal
lant officer in it asked if we re
membered the dispatch in the
new*p«tpers of those days about
the bombing of Metz.
Our friend said that after the
Armistice he was one of the
. American officers sent forward to
occupy Metz. Having read so
much about the destruction of
the depot he headed straight for
It expecting to find it pulverized.
• TO his surprise it seemed in near
ly perfect condition.
I was interested In his reference
to those false dispatches. Last
year in the "Remember Columns"
which some newspaper printed I
reread the headlines of the first
six months of the war. What
weird reading they make now!

will as "propaganda" it remains
unholy and loathsome. The mili

been prevented by lack of re
sources with which to wage it.
Men always have fought and al
ways will fight, they argue, and
they contend without money,
without ships, without guns. This
may be true, though personally I
doubt it. But one thing is sure.
Men cannot fight without hate.

A man whose son graduates
from college in June was asking
what I thought about a post grad

"I don't assume any school can
teach a boy how to succeed," he
said. "What I want is to have my
son learn something about Ithe
history of business."
He proceeded to illustrate from
his own experience. Until 1904 he
was a newspaper reporter, but
that year he took a job with the
manufacturing concern of which
he is now the head.
In 1907, when he was just be
ginning to get under way, along
came a panic.
"We cleared away the wreck
age and started again," he said,
"but in 1910 there was a strike
which tied up our plants, de-

"Suddenly the war, and the

has handicapped so many of us—
that there is any such thing as

* . . . Human Nature Improves
I have a vivid memory of a
certain Sunday morning when I
was seven years old. My father,
a clergyman, had never purchas
ed a Sunday newspaper. On this
particular morning he came down
to breakfast looking deeply con
cerned, and said to Mother: "I
feel today that I must know the
news before I go into the pulpit."
The news that he felt he must
know was about the railroad
strike in Chicago, where men
were killing each other, and
Grover Cleveland had ordered out
the Pedeal troops.
We have made a lot of progress
in the intervening years.
A wise old professor in my col
lege used to quote the following
verse from the Psalms: "What Is
man that thou are mindful of
him? or the son of man that thou
Most people, he said, Interpret
that to mean: "What does petty,
futile man amount to, that you

A better interpretation, the pro
fessor argued, is this: "What a
wonderful creature man must be
that even God is mindful of him
and likes to visit him."

An important New Yorker call
ed me up to ask about two doc

town in Canada. He knew I had
visited them some years ago and
that they did me much good.
I described them to him in the
words of one of their patients.
"They are human ferrets," I said.
"They seem to be able to discover
and correct conditions where even
specialists have failed."
The man went up to the clinic
and stayed three weeks. Yester
day he telephoned me to say that
he had not felt so well In years.
He was so enthusiastic that I
could hardly get him off the
