"The other evening I visited the
'gym' and what I saw there sure
opened my eyes. You sure would he
surprised if I mentioned some of the
names of the prominent gents who
were there. From the bits of con
versation I gathered that they were
in training for some big fight. or
some doings of a rough nature,
which they seemned to sense was oni
the program for the near future.
They all appeared to be carrying:
'chips' on their should rs, so to
speak. and were looking for trouble.
They were nearly all sizeable men.
and some of them had the matkinug
of tough guys, if they only had about
two years' training on the twenty
two hundred level. Aside from the
fact that none of them hadI callouses
on their hands, what struck me par
ticularly was the dare-devil and bel
ligerent spirit of these 'gym' war
riors. They sure appeared to be
spoiling for fight. althoutih none of
them had participated in the big
shindig across the pond. I gatheruta
they were not at all satisied with
the peace.ful contditions following thet
armistice andt were getting thelll
selves into (ondition to stage a war
all their owan. I asked the friend
who introduced Iue into the 'gymn
for the key to the mystery, and he
explained to ume that they were all
men who were well-to-do and well
fed; that conditions of wages andc
hours for them was satisfactory;
that shutting down the mines did not
disturb the regular routine of T-bone
steak at the club. with refreshments.
and then, 'homlle, Jamies, home to the
feathers;' 'and they sure are real
feathers, believe me.' said my friend.
In short, they were enjoying what
the diplonmats call the status quo;
but they feared some of.the less for
tunate brethren had designs on the
good things which were theirs by di
vine right and the status quo, and
they were getting themselves into
the pink of condition to battle for
themselves, if they couldn't find
somebhdy else to do the battling.
This Was my friend's explanation
and it was very illuminating, as the
highbrows say. It dawned on tme alh
at once that there were the RE
SERVES. You know what the re
serves mean. pal, if you haven't
neglected you military education;
they are what the big generals and
kings and emperors keep around
handy in case of emergency, when all
the rest are hors du combat, and
when there is nothing else to do but
call on what is left-these are the
reserves--and stake all on 'one la. t
desperate battle, or run up the white,
'They seined to think that the
eneuity was getting pretty close to
their preserves, and from the talk
they were ready to stage a ferocious
combat, but I sure would hate to see
those nice pink bodies marred, and I
have a sus.icion 'that they might,
throw up the sponge or run up the
white flag, as my friend said they
were generally level-headed men.
but he was not sure but what they
might bite if someone insisted on
sharing their T-bone steaks with
them. Anyhow, if it must be, I'm
curious to see the pink reserves in
action, and, in the meantime--"
"in the meantime," said the Side
Kick, "you'd better lay in a supply
of round steaks and shrapnel; and
keep the lid on your flytrap."
"You're right," said the Mucker.
