. WHY PRIDE?
As I stepped out of the Grand
Central Station the other day I saw
entering It a man whose face seem
ed familiar, and after a moment's
thought I placed him. He is one of
the most distinguished members of
the legal profession in America. He
was a member of the Cabinet of a
former President, and was himself
mentioned for the Presidency.
On a sudden impulse I turned and
The station was full of commut
ers hurrying to their trains. They
looked at him, and through and
around him, but apparently nobody
recognized him. He jostled his way
across the great floor, down a pair
of steps to the platform of the sub
way. And there the crowd crushed
him into the minimum number of
cubic Inches and flung him Into an
My last view of him was as he
stood with his face pressed against
the glass of the door, a completely
squeezed and harassed looking man,
in no way different from the swel
tering others in the car.
Not one of those others knew that
he had been a Cabinet Minister,
helping to shape the destinies of a
nation during the greatest war. Nor
would they have cared, probably, if
they had known.
It has been remarked frequently
that the really big man is almost
always modest. The reasons for
this are two-fold. In the first place
he knows how much of his success
has been due to causes beyond his
control his birth, his education, his
business opportunities. And he
knows, too, what a thin and evan
escent thing is fame.
He has walked through places
like Central Park and looked at the
statues. These are great men who
lived only yesterday fifty or a hun
dred or a hundred and fifty years
ago. Yet how few of them one can
recognize without looking at the
names. And if their fame is already
so faded, what will it be In a thous
and years, or two thousand, or ten?
Abraham Lincoln's favorite song
was a mournful hymn entitled,
"Why Should the Spirit of Mortal
Be Proud?" He knew that the river
of life races on, and that even the
most important of us is soon wash
ed out into the big sea of oblivion.
He knew it because he was really
big. It is only the littler men who
act as if they were permanent rocks
In the river, towering high above
the level, and destined never to be
Einstein, the German mathema
tician, acclaimed the greatest sci
entific mind since Newton, is com
ing to America to do research work
at the California Institute of Tech
nology. There are no national boundaries
to knowledge. Science is interna
tional. The discoveries of every
man of science are at the disposal
of the whole world.
Germany led the world in scien
tific research for nearly a century.
Now the leadership has come to us.
In another hundred years it may
be the Japanese or Australians who
are astonishing the world with their
discoveries. It makes no difference.
Truth is truth, wherever found.
An old man stood on the White
House steps the other day and wav
ed his baton while the President of
the United States stood by his side
and drank in the music which John
Philip Sousa drew from the band
which he had made famous years
It used to be said of America that
we were not a musical nation. No
body can say that today. Sousa
came along at a time when musical
taste was at its lowest ebb In the
United States and wrote the stirring
marches that will never die, with
which his name and the fame of
the Marine Band will forever be as
sociated. The nation hailed him as
its greatest composer. That was
never true, but he was the greatest
popularlzer of music, back in the
1880's and 1890's, and he was, with
out doubt, the greatest band leader
the world had ever seen up to then.

It Is a shortsighted policy which
lets our Government be contented
to build less magnificently than do
our rivals on the sea. For these new
craft, like those of other nations,
are built with Government subsi

and the officials at Washington
thought they would not have pub

money on the new ships. In that,
as in almost everything else the
Shipping Board has done, they are
wrong. The American people will

APPLE PIE TIME HAS COME
This is the time for apple pie.
And you know we don't malign pie
now as we did a few years ago.
Well-made pie is quite digestible for
the person in good health. Fruit
pie, though some critics object to
it because of the mixture of fruit
and sugar, is decidedly toothsome
and if it is not too sweet cannot
be considered injurious. And in
deed good apple pie made with
plenty of apple filling, and with a
light crust, is a pretty well-balanced
You can do most Interesting
things to the flavor of apple pie
simply by varying the condiments
and seasonings you use. Of course,
there are those who prefer a defin
ite flavor every time perhaps a lit
tle cinnamon, perhaps nutmeg and
butter, perhaps just sugar.
But if your family likes variety
try using different seasonings. But
ter and lemon juice, with sugar, of
course, give good results. Espec
ially if the apples are flat which
most apples aren't at this season
lemon juice is a good thing to add
to them. If the apples are very
juicy you can add a little corn
starch mixed with a little water to
them to thicken them.
You can make a one-crust apple
pie that is delicious.
Bake the crust first Then fill In
with good apple sauce well seasoned
and cover it with a meringue.
Brown in the oven. If you wish to,
you may use Btewed apples thick
ened sufficiently with corn-starch
for the filling.
Another apple pie is made by
making a lower crust, filling It with
partly cooked apples, covering it
with criss-cross strips of pastry, and
baking until the pastry is done.
Always bake apple pies slowly, so
that the apples will be thoroughly
cooked and the under crust brown
and well done.
This calls for two cups of flaked
cooked left-over halibut. Make a
sauce of two and a half teaspoons
of butter, two tablespoons of flour
and two cups of milk, seasoning
with salt, pepper, onion juice and a
few grains of mace if desired. Add
a half cup of bread crumbs and the
fish, then the yolks of three eggs
beaten to a lemon color. Finally
fold in the stiffly beaten whites of
the three eggs and pour into a but
tered dish and bake in a moderate
oven for a half hour.
