VIDUALS. I was Invited to speak before the
officers and salesmen of a large in
dustrial organization, and the other
speaker was Dr. Abraham Myer
son, the distinguished psychiatrist
He wanted to make those men
understand how every member of
an organization reacts and is react
ed upon subconsciously by every
other member; how none of us In
modern society Is a separate indi
vidual, but all, as the Bible says,
"members of each other."
He used this illustration:
"A comedy motion picture, which
I saw some years ago, showed a
section of a house with the various
rooms exposed and the people who
were in those rooms.
"In the front room was the mas
ter, waiting at the table to have his
meal served; in the next room were
the butler and the maid engaged in
what we should call a 'petting par
ty.' In the kitchen one observed
the cook feeding the butcher boy
some crackers and milk, while on
the back porch the cat slept peace
fully. Here was, apparently, a hap
py domestic scene.
"But see what happened.
"The butler came in with the food
which apparently did not please the
master of the house. He spoke his
mind freely and harshly to the but
ler, who, offended, returned to the
pantry and, instead of kissing the
maid, straight-armed her into a
"The maid burst into tears: she
went in to scold the cook, and dur
ing the subsequent argument, slap
ped the cook's face. The cook, in
her anger, snatched the food away
from the butcher boy, who, on his
way out, kicked the cat down the
back steps.
"A graphic example," said Dr.
Myerson, "of how an emotion of
fear or ill will or meanness spreads
through an entire organization.
Cheerfulness and courage can
spread Just as far and fast"
You and I are not individuals.
Even Robinson Crusoe ceased to
be an Individual with the arrival
on the scene of his faithful man
Friday. He became then a mem
ber of a society of two, ecah living
the life of the other.
I imagine that Dr. Myerson could
tell us many cases of men who have
gone downtown and worked faith
fully all day, only to utter a word
or cast a glance on their way out of
the office which more than nullified
their whole day's work.
"What you are," said Emerson,
"thunders so loud I can't hear what
you say."
What we are Inside changes the
Inner life of our families, our busi
ness associates, and our fellow citi
zens. We can not harbor fear or
anger or selfishness without dilut
ing the emotional blood-stream of
the race.
And every courageous or unsel
fish emotion builds up the whole

Thirty-eight years ago a ray of
light left the star Arcturus and
started toward the earth. It takes
light, travelling at the rate of 186,
000 miles a second, forty years to
get from Arcturus to the earth. The
ray which started In 1903, the year
of the great World s Columbian Ex
position in Chicago, will reach the
earth in 1933, when Chicago intends
to stage another World's Fair.
At the Yerker Observatory at
Geneva, Wisconsin, the great tele
scope will be focussed on Arcturus
in the spring of 1933. The ray of
light which will have been forty
years on its travels will be reflect
. ed Into a photo-sensitive cell, which
will convert it Into electric energy.
This energy will throw a switch
which will turn on the lights of the
new World's Fair and officially open
the Exposition.

There was a brother, but he had
left home and nobody knew where
he was. Not long ago he was killed
by an automobile, and it was dis
covered that he was worth $70,000
all of which came to Nellie Gray.
And the very flrat thing she did
with her inheritance was to offer
$5,000 to the Town, to help pay for
the new $14,000 bridge over the Wil

W. C. T. U. NOTES.
MARY A. NOTSON, Reporter.
Such a studied effort Is made by
the wets to play up any and every
violation of the prohibition laws as
an argument for repeal that It is
well to pause once in a while and
get the views of observers from the
outside, especially when a fair com
parison can be obtained with the li
censed and government controlled
systemts of handling liquor sales.
J. E. Thomas of Melbourne, Aus
tralia, writing to the Clarion Call,
"It has been my privilege to
spend some months in Great Brit
ain and in the United States of
America so that it was possible to
compare two of the greatest nations
of the world in the light of the
drink traffic. In the Mother Land
there appears to be little reduction
of the traffic. In every prominent
place the people are advised to
have a 'Guinness,' and men are said
to be just longing for one. Drink
is the greatest parasite in Great
Britain. In the face of the greatest
industrial crisis the dear homeland
has experienced, the drink traffic
flourishes like the green bay tree.
Guinness had a dividend of 20 per
cent last year. Every day, and till
closing at night, men and women
are to be seen drinking their great
pots of bere. Wives can be seen
waiting with the children for the
husband to come home; and chil
dren, minding a poor baby, are of
ten waiting for mother to finish
drinking and gossiping and come

home. Frequently, women and well
dressed young women, scarcely
more than girls, can be seen in a
pitiable state of intoxication.
"In America, I can say that I saw
no drink sold; two drunken men;
no drunken women; no children
ill-clothed, ill-fed or neglected, even
in the poorest parts; no open sa
loons to tempt those who passed
by; no liquor advertisements; no
lost home through drink; and,
though we stayed in hotels from
New York to Vancouver, we were
never asked to drink, nor did we
see any sign of drink. If prohibi
tion is the greatest curse ever in
flicted on the American people, I
think they still intend to keep It,
and I would rejoice if we were
cursed with the same blessing."
Wet propaganda tries to make it
appear that racketeering and gang
ster activities are a direct product
of prohibition. Official figures are
now available which show that the
racketeers do not obtain more than
20 per cent of their profits from the
liquor traffic. The gambling "rack
et" is the biggest one of all, and it
was thriving long before prohibi
tion, as were several others. It is
amazing what preposterous stories
the wets publish, and it is still more
amazing how many good people
thoughtlessly swallow them. The
issue is not, "Repeal prohibition be
cause it can not be enforced." The
real Issue Is, "Is government by the
people a failure?" If so, let us pull
down Old Glory and admit that
