He therefore proceeds to argue for a closer associa
tion and interchange of ideas on the part of the British
and American people. That is obviously a desirable
thing, to which all Americans not obcessed with the old
jingo prejudices against John Bull will lend their hearty
approval. But it would be a narrow and unwise plan to
confine this policy to Great Britain. There are other na
tions with whom it is more conceivable that war should
arise than with Great Britain. If mutual understanding
is the best preventative of war, it behooves us to cultivate
Fuch an Understanding with them, and to foster it among
This very thing will probably turn out to be the su
preme benefit resulting from the League of Nations. It
is self-evident that the mere drawing up of a constitution
and the mere meeting and speech-making and resolving
and legislating cf the representatives of the member-nations
are not going to remodel mankind. But all this
functioning of the League involves a large amount of
systematic co-operation on part of the powers, and full
publicity for all their acts. When we have the nations
working together for common purposes, along lines mat
run through all departments of public life, and when all
of them are told just right what the others are doing and
why they are doing it, there will certainly come a better
Vnowledge of each other.
And with that knowledge will surely come under
standing and sympathy.

I spoil a lung; the actors all were dingers, and there were
letter singers, lor.g since, when I was young. Such poets
as the sped ones, such statesmen as the dead ones, these
limes can never know; and there were better writers, and
more heroic fighters, in days of long ago. I am an old
back number; stale chestnuts without number I suffer to
relate; old jukes that Eve was springing when she and
Ad were swinging upon their garden gate. There's noth
ing modern pleases; I like the ancient wheezes, I love the
nossgrown ways; progressive things confound me; I bore
the friends around me with chatter of dead days. I am an 1
old back number; "How long will he encumber this globe",!
the young folks sigh; "we can t enjoy our having until the
old man's playing a zither in the sky." The oid man knows
he's casting a gloom that's everlasting on relative and
friend; and yet he can't help dwelling on olden times and
telling the tales that have r.o end.
