AN OPTIMIST'S PRAYER
Now I lay me down to sleep,
I pray , 0 Lord, that you may
My constitution free from dile
So I may wake up with a smile.
That pleasantly I may proceed
To spread the happy, hopeful
That whatsoever may betide
Haa somewhere got its brighter
That worry never did pi event
The coming of some fell event;
Or. if by chance, we miss the
We've had the worry all in vuin.
Endow me, therefore, with the
To ever wear a smiling fact;
And if mis fortune comes along,
0, let me meet it with a song.
Let not Suspicion's poison find
A breeding place within my
To make wonder if old friends
Are meiely serving selfish ends,
If I, unjuHly am abused,
Or other wise denied my dues.
Or made the butt of falsehoods
Still let me "carry on" and smile.
If in return for good deeds done,
Ingratitude is all I've won.
Let me not harbor bitterness,
But keep on doing none less.
To keep me human, now and
Please let me fin like other men,
So I may not presume to pass
In judgement on some fellow ass.
I'd hate it but I shall not wHn.e,
If time enlarges much the line
That marks my waist;and though
I shall not mourn the loss of hair
My teeth, tis true, I grtatlt
And, most of all, of course, my
But one thing more I'd keep -this
My sense of humor, Lord, Amen.
'Twixt optimist and pessimist
The difference is droll;
The former sees the doughnut
And the latter sees the hole.
Authorities on jurisprudence,
great assemblies of the legal fra
ternity, publicists in genersl and
the great man of the public are
anre"d that court proceedure
should be reformed in the inter
est of justice and publie safety.
But the reform does not come.
Lwayers inthe courtroom are
prone to asume a position tht
very opposite of that taken ir
the state association or on tht
public plat form.
In the, free air of public discuf-
on, a'l are for reform, but in
the murky atmosphere of tht
courtroom, dilatory mot ion?, end
less red tape, disagreeable condi
tions of jury STvi:?, all combin
ing to block Jhe free action ol
justice are exalted as essential
elemsnts of judicial proceedure,
Pay rolls form the foundation
of community growth, and indus
tries are established and pay
rolls created oy the investment
of money,- funds saved by the
people of a community who have'
appreciated the value of thrift.
The pactice of thrift is the foun
dation stone of success of the in
dividual, the family, the corpora
tion or the community.

work for him,
A supermajotity of the Senate
is ready to vote adhesisn to the
World Court. Not so the bull
headed an fanatical minority. We
have therefore the unedifying
spectacle of national legislation
held at a standstill while Senator
Cole Blease of South Carolina
reads hour on hour from the
musty pages of his campaign
speeches of yester year, not in
the hope of changing the vote but
with the purpose of preventing
a vote and only yielding the floor
in order that another member of
the battalion may take up the
chain of obstruction and read on
from the writings of Washington
and Jefferson, Paine and Lincoln
and if need be the Encyclopedia
