And finally — the image each man carries in his heart, half you, half the Ideal you've created in him of the girl he hopes to marry. really get going. The young men who have to prove they're fit for a Job ap- preciate it when they get it. Of course, there are exceptions to every rule! But for a while we had a good opportuni- ty for watching the rule wcrk out, when we had a Job which included in- terviewing ten or twenty young men for our employer, several times a week, sometimes daily. Wte learned a lot do- ing that! It didn't take long before we could pick those who would suc- ceed from those who wouldn't, in five minutes time. We learned what dif- ferent ambitions this world holds, as well as what degrees of ambitions. There were a great many men who would count their success a salary sufl- cient for establishing a home of their own — success, enough money for mar- riage. There were others who wanted only personal success — fame — in the theatre, in radio, in business leader- ship. A few were waiting for the day that they could pilot a flying boat for Uncle Sam or a commercial airline — success in the sky. Those airminded boys were always the most enthusias- tic youngsters, all for a short life and a merry one. A very few were want- ing the sort of success that brings so- cial recognition with it. But the great- er portion of young men we interview- ed were really interested in success in business so that they might lead the life they wanted after office hours — a family life In the good American tradition, mostly. It was encouraging to note the honesty and sincerity and real wish to work among most of them In contrast to the occasional few who wanted success without work. Some of them were bound to succeed, others would never reach their goal. There will be many of them who )wUl Had success the sweeter— in the manner Emily Dickinson suggests — because they won't succeed In those various hopes they have. They will aw»reclate success more than the Junior partners who take everything in an unappreci- atlve stride. A City's Cow In Macy's the other day we heard a most unmistakable lowing. We didn't see how a cow could have usurped those portals. But a cow had. There In the midst of a busy sales floor was the most wonderful cow anyone could want to see — a sort of dappled gray cow. It had a lovely long rope tall, real horns, and an Icebox Interior! It is probably the flrst cow in history to give ice cold milk to customers. And there were plenty of customers for the ice cold milk. Yes, it was the most beautiful wooden cow you could want to see, and it had the most realistic moo. Our Week This has been one of our energetic, roving weeks. We started It all in the way of fun, seeing Cornell, our alma mater, play some wonderful football and win from Princeton. As always we were impressed by the fact that there's no group of individuals quite like a college group for nonchalance and unconcern of the world. You'll flnd it on any undergraduate campus In the universe, that independent air. Let's see, what next? We packed so many interesting things into a few days t h a t we wish you all could have gone right along. We wandered on busi- ness through the intricacies of several of the city's largest advertising agen- cies — places that are so huge that the billboard signs which advertise their customer's wares sit in the middle of a room quitje a t home and not at |dl o\!erlarge for ^the 'Slar'<rf ttie place! Th^re always is such a bustle In these places tiiat one wonders how any work Is ever done at all, any work that re- quires quiet for thinking as advertis- ing does! the odds and ends our roving accomp- lished into some semblance of order and business! Do you alternate your weeks that way too, sometimes? A week for organizing—a week for carry- ing out plans? Another Hobby Here's another hobby for some of you —collecting records for a phonograph. It has all sorts of possibilities. Of course, there are some pe<q;>le who just like classical music — others who Just take to swing. No doubt you've a friend who has a complete collection of one or the other of these two kinds of mu- sic. But there are all sorts of other record collections you can make. For instance, there's Hawaiian music. You could collect the real Hawaiia music played by Hawaiian Instrumentalists— or American music played by Hawaiian orchestras. With the opening of a sec- ond Hawaiian room In New York, and the increased popularity of music from the Islands on the air, youll flnd a collection of records of this sort Is go- ing to take a leap forward. Then there are the Viennese waltzes. Well let you in on a secret! We're going to collect ourselves a few of them! And again, there are the modern American com- posers for you, too. There's one thing to be said for a record collection — it's getting to be a less expensive hobby t h a n ever — for several companies put out all the best music on popular priced records which are Just as inexpensive as any records you can buy. Then, there always reader for you are the pieces you prefer to hear. It's a relaxing sort of hobby — and all you nee^ to s ^ r t are a phono- gtaph and a pa<ikage of n ^ l e s — and perhaps you -can even borrow the neighbor's portable victrola!! Eaitorials I like to read the Editorials in the magazines, the New York newspapers and In the local papers too. I like to pick them apart and \balance up\ the statements. With some I agree, with many I do not. I like to Imagine the sort of person who writes them — his personality, his ideals and convictions, likes and pet hates — for Editorials do reflect those things like a mirror. William Frederick Bigelow,, Editor of Good Housekeeping, writes a most in- spiring article on one of the flrst pages of that macazlne. He must, possess a vast store of knowledge, from which he passes out liberal p r i o n s to those who will but read. He's intensely Interested in the \youth\ of our Country, I think, for he says much about their training, their education and advises them in such a kindly, fatherly manner. I im- agine he's a large man, who wears glasses, has gray hair, thin on top and has sons of his own .He is aware of the tombs where Youth may hide away —dark tombs of cowardice, self-pity and conceit, and his writings are a challenge to Youth to seek a nobler and more glorious life. Perhaps you're not acquainted with the person with whom you speak orer the telephone. But from his tone of voice and his manner of speaking, one may form a fair opinion of his char- acter. The spoken word and the writ- ten word have much in common—what one says matters not so much some- times, as ^ e way one says It. Sad But True Last night Jack Frost spread a blank- et of \Finis\ over my garden. I'm sad when I lo(dc a t the flower heads hang- ing over and the green leaves turned black. They weren't t h a t way when I last looked at them the night before. A garden is like a family. The young plants you tenderly feed and water with regularity. When - they're older they mostly care for themselves.. Sometimes there's one not quite so robust as the others. You nurse It along, giving It extra care perhaps, trying to build up its resistance and make It grow — like a delicate child. I had a carnation like that. It lived, but grew very slowly. And now 'tis dead, before I'd even de- termined what- color the blossom would have been. < ^ d then there was an old iullthat I'd kept In the house MATINEE — SAT., SUN., WED.

Are you listening on Sundays at one o'clock to the Pilgrimage of Poetry on WJZ? Really, you must! Perhaps you're like us, and missed the flrst aroadcast! That mustn't happen again. I'll tell you why. All winter long at one o'clock on Sundays you'll be able to drop In at the homes of the American poets — visit among their things — (hear the pages turned of a book Sara Teasdale or Joyce Kilmer or James Whltcomb RUey once read. Just for Instance). It's an exciting business. Surely It Is. You never thought of poetry as exciting? It's as exciting as life Itself. If you've never read much poetry — don't know much about the American poets — then here's the chance to learn about them in the most fascinating manner possible — hear all about the homes they lived in — see the scenes you've read about In famous lines! (for everyone knows some of the famous lines of poetry) — through the eyes of Ted Malone — the same scenes that inspired the poetry once long ago. It's going to be a fascinating series of visits to the homes, offices, birth- places of our great American poets, allright. I'll vouch for It, because I've had a preview of what's to come. So I say — you Just can't afford to miss It. red genurtfi each winter and put out In the spring. That reminds me of an elderly person who has had a stroke. I knew that geranium couldn't live forever, I should have been prepared for a sud- den demise, yet, I felt badly when the end flnally came. . I hadnt the heart to pull up those luxuriant tomato plants — they've been growing merrily on all summer — with- out tomatoes — like an ornamental hedge. Today they're \squelched\ not slang, a fitting description. Ditto the peppers. But oh, the cauliflower; We've eaten one head, one is botmd round with a piece of the old petticoat, in readiness to devour in about a week, and the other's a sure-enough freak. It's the \he one,\ the one the farmer told me to destroy. That bun<^ of would-be spinach has \nine\ heads, all from one root. They're small — about the size of a black walnut — but quin- tuplets are tiny, so naturally four more would make them decidedly minute. My farming has all been fun, even tho the anticipation often exceeded the realization. graceful evidence of the low state of education. Farmers and mechanics! this is a subject which comes home to you. Crafty politicians are constantly call- ing you the bone and sinew of the land: and you may depend upon it that you will never be anything else but bone and sinew without education. There Is a law of Ood In this matter. \Hiat class of men who make the most and best use of their heads, will, in fact, be the most Influential, will stand high- est, whatever the theories and speeches may say. This is a \nature of things\ which cannot be dodged, nor got over. Whatever class bestow great pains up- on the cultivation of their minds will stand high. If farmers and mechanics feel themselves to be as good as other people, it all may be true; for good- ness is one thing and intelligence Is another. If they think that they have Just as much mind as other classes, that may be true: but can you use It a? well? Lawyers, and physicians, and clergy- men, and literary men, make the dis- cipling of their intellect a constant study. They read more think more, write more than the laboring classes. The difference between the educated and uneducated portions of society is a real difference. Now a proud and lazy fellow, may rail and swear at this, and have his labor for his pains. There Is only one way really to get over it, and t h a t Is to rear up a generation of well educated, thinking, reading farm- ers and mechanics. Your skill and In- dustry are felt; and they put you, In these respects, ahead of any other class. Just as soon as your heads are felt, as much as your hands are, that will bring you to the top. Many of our best farmers are men of great natural shrewdness: but when they were young they \had no chance for learning.\ They feel the loss, and they are giving their children the best education they can. Farmers' sons con- stitute three-flfths of the educated class. But the thing Is, that they are not educated as farmers. When they begin to study they leave the farm. They do not expect to return to It. The idea of sending a boy to the school, the academy, and the college, and then let him go back to farming, is regarded as a mere waste of time and money. You see how it is even among your- selves. If a boy has an education, you expect him to be a lawyer, or a doctor, or a preacher. You tacitly admit that a farmer does not need such an educa- tion; and If you think so, you cannot blame others If they follow your ex- ample. There Is no reason why men of the very highest education should not go to a farm for a living. If a son of mine were brought up on purpose to be a fanner. If t h a t were the calling which he preferred, I still would educate him, if he had common sense to begin with. A beginning must be made at th« com- mon school. And no decent man will teach school on wages which a canal boy or hostler would turn up his nose at. Above all, do not let a boy get a notion that If he is educated, he must, of course, quit the farm. Let him get an education that he may make a bet- ter farmer. I do not despair of yet seeing a generation of honest polltl clans. The Lord deliver us from the po- litical honesty of tenth-rate lawyers, vagabond doctdi-s, bawling preachers, and bankrupt clerks, turned into patri- otic politicians! long-haired man who wandered alone thru the Middle West during iU set- tlement. He carried a Bible, a staff, and & sack, dressed In burlap, with a rope around his waist and his cook- pan for a hat. He represents the American that has never been interested In money or pub- lic opinion, that has been friendly sen- sible, not aggressive and bloody, that has nurtured life instead of destroying it; that has been sensitive to the beauty of this continent, and done something to create here a civilization. Johnny Appleseed stands for ourselves at our best! Color Today I crave color — the brighter the better! Bet you'd be curious if you passed my house and saw the gaily col- ored \glm cracks\ hanging on my clothes line. Like to know what sort of a bee I have In my bonnet? ' Well a few days ago I purchased three, small, wooden chopping bowls, three or four tiny cans of red, Mue, yellow and green enamel and smne amusing Mexican \decals.\ I assembled the aforesaid articles several gourds •of different sizes and shapes, some queer-looking seed pods, put on an old pair of gloves and with my paint brush in hand, I've had the time of my life! I painted the bowls, then put three tiny decals on the outside. Painted the gourds too, When both are dry I'll ar- range the \fruits of my dreams\ In the bowl and have an unusual table center piece for Hallowe'en — and some to bestow upon some friends. I've experienced the same sort of feeling t h a t Santa Olaus must be en- joying Just about now. — 5 poor old me, a 20 cent widow. And then another thought flashed thru my mind, like Ofiorganna In the \Rain Bow,\ I would have to live up to it all. My dear, haven't you placed a great responsibil- ity on my old tottering frame? Was pretty busy both Friday and Saturday, but went out to start being a Lovely Lady — who never could be otherwise, no matter what happened. Saturday, I called on Mrs. B, found her having trouble with her leg again. So unloaded one ton of sympathy, which was very gladly received. Sunday went to church where the minister placed more on my shoulders. After ditmer I went to the cemetery. It was so lovely up there in the blessed sunshine. Since then I have sort of lived my life all over again. There are so many old friends and neighbors resting there after the Joys and trials of this busy world. Monday I went to the store. On the way I met two little colored children, cunning as could be. Pretty soon their grandmother claimed them. She was delighted to see me so we chatted awhile. Well I reached home In time to save the life of a starving man. And this morning I have baked two pump- kin pies and a cherry turnover — with the pits all in. My poor abused brother won't think much of that. Well how I rattle on, that denotes a feeble mind. Your cookies were fine. Yum! Yum! Brother h u done quite some talking while I was scratching this, so overlook all mistakes. Love Speaking of Hallowe'en, I reserved seven of my choice gourds to make Jack-O'Lanterns for the little folks t h a t come to nursery school. Won't t h a t be fun? They're probably too young to know what it's all about, but they love to take things home to mother, so that's that! At Mattituck yesterday I saw the cutest \Hallowe'en favor\ I've ever seen. 'Twas a three-day old mule. Mostly legs and ears, its coat as soft as a kittens and Just as black as coal. It played around like a kitten and would stick out Its nose to be patted, afraid of no one. A Letter I've had a letter from the \Lovely Lady.\ It so beautifully Illustrates one of her virtues— keen sense of humor— I'm passing it along: Dear Friend: Of cburse I looked flrst when I open- ed the TRAVELER to see if the apple sauce cooky receipe was in. And was both surprised and embarassed to read all the very flattering things said about the cooky maker. It's a comfort to know few people will realize it's Just Christian Science \Everlasting Punishment\ is the sub- ject of the Lesson-Setmon In all churches of Christ, Scientist, on Sun- day, October 29. The Golden Text is: \Cast away from you all your transgressions, whereby ye have transgressed; and make you a new heart and a new spirit: for why will ye die, O house of Israel?\ (Ezeklel 18: 31). Among the citations which comprise the Lesson-Sermon is the following from the Bible: \And the Lonl an>ear- ed to Solomon by nlgiit, and said unto him, I have heard thy prayer, and have chosen this place to myself for a house of sacrifice . . . If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble them selves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and wUl heal their land\ (11 Ohion. 7: 12, 14). The Lesson-Sermon also Includes the following selection from the textbook of Ohrlitian Soleaee, \Selenoe and Health with Key to the Scriptures,\ by Mary Bttker SMy: \Justice raquires reformation of the ainner. Meroy can- cels the debt <»ly when Juatiee • p ' proves . . . It la error to auffer for aught but your own slna. Ohrtat, on Truth, will destroy all other suiMioied suffering, and real suffering for your own alna will cease In proportion aa, the aln ceues\ (pp. 22, S81). Educated Farmers I've been reading a book \Plain and Pleasant Talk about Fruits, flowers and Farming.\ written in 1859, by Hen- ry Ward Beecher. The following about \educated farm- ers\ is interesting: It Is time for those who do not be- lieve Ignorance to be a blessing, to move In behalf of common schools. Many teachers are not practised even In the ludlments of the spelllng-bo<A: and as for reading, they stumble along the sentences, like a drunken man on a rough road. Their \hand-write as they felicitously style the hieroglyidilcs, would be a match for OhampoUlon, even If he did decipher the Egyptian inscriptions. But a more detestable fact is, that sometimes their morals are bad; they are intemperate, course, and ill-tempered; and wholly unfit to In- spire the minds of the pupUs with one generous or pure sentiment. We do not mean to characterize t h e body of the common school-masters by these re- marks: but that any considerable por- ticm of them should be such, is a dis- PreclouB Stones I doubt If \costume Jewehry\ were ever as fashionable as it is today — or ever so cumbersome and heavy-look- ing. When you are admiring the numer- ous pieces in the department stores, do you ever wonder who designed them, or where t h e stones came from? I do. This old earth — toiling, quaking, erup- ting — after millions of years has pro- duced stones that are Inreath-taklng In their splendor. Many of us, if we wear Jewelry at all, wear too much. One beautiful gem — its value unimportant — should be a constant spiritual stimulus to any woman. Particularly so | | she's learned something about its source, composi- tion and loves it for its color and char- acter. I know of a \Mexican opal,\ set In a gold ring. It is not valuable, but It re- flects the color of the gown of the wearer — and I think, even reflects her mood sometimes. On a bright sun- shiny day, it will catch the rays of the sun and all the seven colors of the rainbow will dance around playing hide and seek with each other, never exact- ly in the same place twice. The ancients have said you know, that precious stones lived breathed and had souls. 1 I Today's Forgotten Man Quit Advertising Yesterday Wanted: More Men Like Johnny Appleseed When you went to school you heard about \Johnny Appleseed,\ his first nurseries and apple orchards.
