MR. ALES HRDLICKA. of the Smithsonian Institution, address
ing a body of scientists recently, called the American race the
infant of the human family. Physically there is yet no specifically
defined American type. There are many types, each representing
the European racial group from which it came. .
Mentally, however, there is an American race, as clearly marked
to the psychologist as the Scandinavian or Greek or Chinese would
be to the ethnologist.
The American possesses an unmistakable alertness, a nervous
energy, an atmosphere of intelligence and independence which are
peculiarly his own.
If there is any one inclined to" feel badly because there are no
physical race characteristics, he should cheer up. There is more cause
for pride in these mental and spiritual qualities which speak so plainly
of the nation's achievements, ideals and opportunities.

IT DOESN'T matter when I reach the town of Bungville-on-thc-Beach.
I've no important errand there; I merely go to hold a
chair in Alner JohnsorVs Blue Front Store, and loaf and talk and
be a bore. It's fifteen miles, the signboards teach, from here
to Bungville-on-the-13each, and I might take an hour, I ween, to
hit those parasangs between. But I step down upon the gas, and
men who see my lizzie pass throw up astounded hands and say
"That boob will break his neck some day." I'm always winging
hens and cows'; and faster than the law allows I speed my um,
and make her roar, to chew the rag at Johnson's store. The speed
fiends zip through dust and mire, as though proceeding to a fire;
you'd think, when you. behold them whiz, that "life or death"
their errand is. But when they've madetheir breathless race,
and come to the appointed place, into the druggist's joint they
drop, and fill themselves with ice cold pop. Just,ask the speeder
to explain why he propels his rattling wain, defying all the traf
fic laws, and he can only say, "Because 1" There is no sense in
all the haste that causes such a wanton waste of men and dogs
and Berkshire sows, and geese and ducks and mulcy cows.

Catholics' Agree With St. Paul
Catholics believe that Jesus Christ, true God and true Man, is
whole and entire, both under the form of bread, and under the form
of wine; hence it is not necessary to receive Holy Communion under
both forms. Consult your Bible, authorized version of 1881 (Cor.
11:27), "Wherefore whosoever shall eat the bread OR drink the cup
of the Lord in an unworthy manner shall be guilty of the body and
the Blood of the Lord." See Cardinal Wiseman's Book on Holy
Communion and Real Presence At All Book Stores.
I hereby announce my candidacy for
