THE LONG ISLAND TRAVELER T h r u W o m e n ' s E g e s EDITETO BY JEAN HALLOCK Gray Shore by James Rorty t Kpokc the.sea, that reaches green ,Mid avid Angers In between ! The capes, the gray capes of the world; { Will there be suns? I I asked; and will the gray tides flee' When morning banners shake above the i sea? ! Hush! said the sea; So many hopes there are that fly And clamor In the painted sky! Hush! Bald the sea,-and hush. Will there be winds? I asked —a shrill wind sent for me To blow me high and set me free? Hush! said the sea; The winds do naught but prowl Upon my deeps, and howl, and howl. Hash! said the sea, and hush. Will I liave poaoe? t asked —when sleep at last will come With shadowy breasts to bear me home? Hush! said the sea; There come so many moaning things With weeing eyes and trailing wings- Hush! saM the sea, and hush. our Philosophizing kerc we are well started on new year, so how about a little phl- losophWiig, ahall we. Oh, not very deep philosophizing; after all, although Wij wouldn't confess it, maybe deep phi- losophizing would find us a bit rusty -it's been a long time since we opened liiose college books and wrestled with the old masters at philosophizing. But, well,— just a little bit of every day philosophy for we think that you won't vyant any clothes hints, this week, on tbe woman'B page—we\ll wait for those til nexttveek, when they'll be showing our own spring fashions—and we've run out of beauty hints, and besides, Uie crisp air gives us all the beauty brushing up we need, this week—and Cbere aren't any of our stories we Qllnk would fit your mood this week, to that leaves us with a bit of phi- losophy this week for all us Woman Pagers. Where shall we start? What do you want to talk about? It Isn't fair for me to have all the say, you know. Let's see—someone suggested a little talk on being brave, maybe that's lEhere wo should start then—for once we'ix: off: there's no belling where this discussion—this round table conference at ours together on the Woman's Page Will end. BravenessT Well, there are several kinds of betng brave. It divides itself up the way most things in this Ifcrld dc^into the physical, spiritual and the mental. Remember being brave while K tooth was being pulled? Maybe it naa your first Introduction to the word -torave. You stood there while some- 01^ tied the fatal string and pulled uid that was the end of your tooth —ttie one that had been loose and ndBgley for a week—and maybe you (ildn't eren let out one little yell—or maybe yoti did, but you didn't cry— and someone said how brave you were ax^ gave you a candy bar—or a nickel. (Veil, that was mostly physical brave- aes&^raveness against pain. The spir- itual Kortf I think, don't you, it must be'part and parcel of all those in war lands—believing that someday, some- how. things will be peace and quiet <(galn-4;hat despite the bombs falling ^jound one. the world is still essen- tiftlly good and tliat you will live to B^ through the bombs, the warfare, and come out on the other side. It's also the toraveness that comes with those Bitting in the lonely still hours of the oiglit watching, waiting, at the bedside of someone near and dear, who is 111—the tiravcness that keeps reach- ing to the other side—the side where ttfUxgs are right and happy again. Mental braveness? It comes, well, tnaybc In telling the truth, when that tfuth has (o be told, and when it means losing the respect of someone, qc hurting another. It's the braveness tbos, of going to the aid of someone the believe as you only one course In some instances? All right, I'll agree with you on that. If you're a vanquished loser, there's only one course, and you know it as well as I—congratulate the winner, he deserves it—after all, it was a flght or match that was fair, wasn't It?

One answer is oatmeal muffins. Oatmeal Muffins 1 cup of cooked oatmeal 1 \ii cups of flour 2 tablespoons of sugar 4 teaspoons of baking powder '/i teaspoon of salt '/4 cup of milk 1 egg 2 tablespoons of melted butter Sift the flour before measuring, then measure and sift the flour, sugar, salt and baking powder, mixing them tho- roughly. Thorough mixing is necessary because the batter itself is to be stir- red only slightly; over-mixing of muf- fln batters makes peaked and tun- neled muffins. Beat the whole egg slightly and com- ,bine It with one-half the milk and the ,, ,, „ , ,elted m butter. Mix the remainder of us wrong that's the time to come out the milk with the oatmeal and stir and admit it—and t h p go on to the this mixture into the egg-milk mix- next problem without fear that we ture.

Q. What Is the Suffolk County Cancer Committee? A. The Suffolk C o u n t y Cancer Committee Is a group of medical men organized as a branch of the American Society for the Control of Cancer to course it was. If you lost, there wlll|P'®\ program of can- f gle gang'tt against—but you beU( be right-when It might be Just e^y to slink away; the braveness of (doing ooDsure for an act that you <£now is rfeht—but the majority think is wrong. That's the mental side of braveness Just, for the fun of It I've turned tUe iwgos to see what my dictionary has to say on the subject—Brave? llie coiicluston seems to be meeting X. situation with courage and fortitude, m other words, Chin Up. Some of us ccano by it naturally, some never do; sfihie build up their braveness from nothing, or almost nothing, until It's a- shining armor. be another time later, perhaps, when you will win. But even If there Isn't, you've lost, and hard as that may be, no matter what the losing was, that's the fact In the case. A poor loser can't be a really good winner, either. If you can't appreciate another's win- ning, defeating you, you can't really appreciate wiimlng yourself, I fear. And now what's that you're saying— that sometimes you get yourself caught in a situation where you have no chance to defend yourself. If you play by the code of honor? Then what will you do? It depends, I suspect, on how Important the situation is. If it's trivial. It will be aimoylng, no doubt, but a world won't be lost by not explaining, nor won by your self de- fense, either. It may be someone re- peating gossip and attributing It to you. Hardly fair? Well, If people know you, they will know you didn't say It, and those you don't may find your explanation satisfactory, or just more condemning. You'll have to weigh the balances yourself, see wheth- er for once It's wise to overstep the bounds of honor—or the correct thing to do—and say those words of self- defense. Somehow, In the end, the balances will weigh even, you know, so it may be best to stand by, to say nothing. Is our phlosophizlng getting too ab- stract? Shall we turn our Round Table Discussion l)ack to more fa- miliar words now? How did we wan- der so far into abstraction? Let's pick out a question at random. What do you think, say, of the the honor in- volved in getting up and giving your seat to an older person—or. If any gentlemen are browsing in the Wo- man's Page, jtoday—for women? In most cases it's admirable. Isn't it? But then again, there may be times when It doesn't come In quite so handy. For Instance, If you're sardlned In be- tween the other passengers of a crowded bus or subway, it's apt to cause more confusion If you do arise and give up your seat than if you don't. At least we've all seen times when that's true. Just following a code doesn't always do the trick, does it? That's where our mental thinking judgments come In. We have to take the rules and regulations, the codes and morals of this world, apply them to us, to our situation, to the changing times, to an emergency, perhaps, de- cide if those new conditions make them still follow—or alter them to suit the new situation. For instance, there's no sense In formal Introductions when The first foreign Poster Jn connection with the New York World's Fair has been Issued by the Polish Commission. It is the work of Jan Henryk de Rosen, noted Polish painter, whose murals will be Included in the Polish Exhibit at the Fair. The Poster, 28x40 Inches, printed in carmine, sliver and blue, will be distributed throughout the country by the Polish Commission. SHELTER ISLAND DEPARTMENT MISS LILIAN T.
