NEEDED COURSE IN WISDOM
In \ncient Days it Was Well Recog
nized That the Young Required
- Proper Instruction.
Instruction of the young by the old
was not out of date when "The Wisdom
Books" were written, according to Dr.
Josiah H. Penniuian. acting provost of
tne University, of Pennsylvania.
"The people who wrote the Bible
were very han," declared Doctor
Penniman. and hie illustrated this with
many passages Irom the Scriptnres.
"The book of wisdoiml told the people
w1nt to do. ani mst of the people
needed it." IDictor 'Penniimai said.

olden days, for Delilah said to Samson,
'Thou hast told a riddle unto thy neigh

get into the public view."
Doctor Penniman declared Job was
the most artistic of the Wisdom books,
and in some respects of all the books of
WAS CENTER OF INTEREST
Student Quite Unwittingly Furnished
Amusement for a Large
Number of People.
While I was a student in college I
think I amused the largest number of
people it was ever my fortune to en
tertain at one and the same- time. I
know I came nearer to wishing to van
ish off the face of the earth at that
moment than ever before or since.
The morning schedule in this college
consisted of four periods for recita
tions with five minute periods of inter
mission between classes. All classes
were dismissed and summoned from
and to classrooms at the same time by
a small bell operated exactly like the
ordinary doorbell. This bell was in
stalled in the entrance hall of the
building-where most of the st 'cnts
congregated during intermissinis.
For the convenience of the students
a telephone was likewise placed in this
hall. One morning the usual crowd of
students was gathered In the hall,
valting for the signal to call them
back into classes. When It came, mis
taking it for a telephone call, I hastily
picked up the receiver and called
"Hello." No answer-so I repeatod
m5 "Hello" louder.
By this time I had the attention of
most of the students-they stopped
their chattering and were Intent on

With Remarks From the General,
While I was a lieutenant in the
- army at a western training camp we
had a parade and divisional reviewv
before a well-known general, and I
invited some girls to see it. We were
marching along in a column of fours
wvith another company on each side
of us. We were to keep on this way
until we got in front of the general,
when we were to turn left and go for
ward, the commar~d to be "Squads
leff." I must have been excited, for
I shouted "Squads right," and, like
good soldiers, my company obeyed.
There was great confusion, of course.
The gcaeral sawv it all and sent an
orderly to get mae. When I confront
ed him I received some cutting cen

of his lecture I saw my friends

As Waiter Dill Scott suggests,
every business youth, on beginning
his or her business life, should adopt

NEEDS TOO MUCH EXERTION
Writer Refuses to Go Too Deeply
Into What Might Be Called
"I and Me" Problem.
The line, "Look what I done for you
and him and me," is good American,
but better American, I believe, would
be. "Look what I done for him and
you and I." This' however, writes
Ring Lardner In the Bookman, brings
up a subject to which one ought to be
able to devote a whole volume, but
one ain't goin' to. One Is only goin'
to state that mysterious rules govern
the cases o6 personal pronouns in our
language--and one hasn't had time to
solve the-mysteries even since prohibi
We say, "He come up to me in the
club," but we also say, "He come up
to Charley and I in the club," or even
"He come up to I and Charley in the
club." Charley's presence in the club
seems, for "some reason or another,"
to alter my case. The other night I
was reading a play script by one of
this country's foremost dramatists;
and recurring in it was the stage di
rection, "A look passes between he
and So-and-So." But this playwright
wouldn't think of saying or writing,
"She passed he a look."
My theory on this particular point
is that when the common American
citizen, whom we will call Joe, was in
his last year in school (the sixth
grade), the teacher asked him how
many boys there were in his family.
He replied: "Just Frank and me."
"Just Frank and I," corrected the
teacher. And the correction got Joe

Sleepy sickness is quite a different
disease from the somewhat similarly
named, but 4ar more deadly, sleeping
sickness, which Is a tropical disease.
Sleepy sickness was first noticed in
England in 1918. There is little doubt
that the cause of this mysterious com
plaint is a microbe. The microbes con
entrate their attack on the brain,
causing lethargy and facial paralysis,
the patient lying for days in bed with
motionless head and expressionless
face, like a mask, reminding one of the
effigy on a tomb. Doctors are not yet
:efinitely agreed as to whlether the hic
cugh epidemic and the sleepy sickness
are different disenises, or wvhether the
ne is merely a symptom of the other.
Probably the latter view is the correct
oe, seeing that violent and prolonged
iccoughs were noticed in connection
rith the outbreak of sleepy sickness
that ravaged Vienna in the early part
f last year.
