THE PART THAT LIVES ON
ROBERT VEEMS,.a member of the Masonic lodge in the
village of Hempstead, New York, died -two years ago
with a request that his body be cremated and his ashes
scattered to the four winds or else over the surface of the sea.
They were given to the waves with the usual Masonic service
for committal to the sea.
The point is that the departed member considered it imma
terial where his mortal remains might find their final rest. To
many people the point is well taken. The body dies and may
be disposed of as seems fitting. But the life that was lived
cannot be buried. It lives on and its influence, great or small,
for good or bad, remains. The record stands and cannot be
The Moving Pinter writes; and having writ
Moves on; nor all your piety nor wit
Shall lure it back to cancel halt a line.
Nor ail your tears wipe out a word of it.
If we could realize this more than we do all would lead bet
ter lives, borne hold the view that God is merciful and will for
give anything. That may be so but the divine will as revealed
in the rules of nature does not bear out the theory. Nature is
kind but inexorable as all will find who trifle with her laws. The
best that anyone can do is to keep the record clear and leave
behind a memory' that will be cherished in proportion as you
were of service to others.
ALIVE AND WORKING
JUST 13 days after Warren Harding was elected president
and had declared in his first speech that the League of
Nations is dead, the league assembly met for its first
session. Instead of being a corpse the league is alive and well.
Forty-two nations are represented at Geneva and there are ap
plications on file from 15 additional countries. Even Germany
and Mexico wish to join.
No other country has held aloof for fear the league would
jeopardize its sovereignty, but the United States is absent,
thanks to a campaign of falsehood and defamation waged for
partisan purposes. In part our people were deceived on the
league subject, but more than that they wanted a change. They
are getting it. This country has changed from a world leader
into a slacker nation. Not satisfied with unusual prosperity
people wanted something different on that score and they are
getting it, too. They may get more than they wish. Truthful
ness requires the statement, however, that the wave of depres
sion is not chargeable to the Harding election, save in part, but
if Governor Cox had been elected and these conditions had fol
lowed in the wake of the voting, every reactionary and every
reactionary newspaper would be calling on heaven to witness
the calamity they had predicted. You know it.
However, all that is water over the wheel. The people gave
their verdict and it is accepted without cavil. What concerns
ue now is not the past but the future. What is the new adminis
tration going to do about the vacant seat they are holding for
Uncle Sam? Shall we accept it or still sulk? The problem is
up to the president-elect. It is an open question what he will do.
His campaign attitude offers little hope. But he is now a bigger
man than he was a few weeks ago and his responsibilities may
give mm a Droaaer viewpoint.
The law of supply and demand is all right, but after all, its
working depends a good deal on the fuss you make with your
demand. Boston Transcript.

PAWNS ON GARFIELD

Garfield mreet. Manager I"at Loner-
Kan, of the Warren Construction Co.,
said today. The three blocks on Gar

graded and Rravcled, ready for the
contractors and their hot stuff.
The block on Jefferson from Wilson
to and Including the intersection of
Martin is also about ready to start on,

gineer's office. A third block about
ready for paving is that on Matlock
from Haley to Jackson. Other streets
on the north side, which are to be
raved, are being graded as rapidly an
ossibie in hopes that when the paving
plant sarts up it will be possible to
work without interruption. ,
A gravel base and a topping of one
cr.d a half Inches of bitulithic is the
luality of pavins to lie laid. The con
tracts were signed on the basis of
