WAY TO REST IS TO LOAF.
A lpt of people who are looking
forward with considerable glee to
coming vacations will return
more tired than they went away.
This is not a mere idle observa
tion, but the precise deduction
from scientific data by Dr. Fred
erick S. Lee, "fatigue specialist"
of Columbia University.
Leaving out the technical de
tails about nerve exhaustion, oxy
gen and carbohydrates, fatigue
substances and a number of other
things we never heard of, Dr. Lee
declares that you cannot rest by
working, even if the work is dif
ferent from what you are accus
Anything that tires the body
tires the mind, and vice versa; yet
thousands of exhausted mental
workers will seek rest in physical
exercise wholly strange to their
usual habits. They will merelygo
from "comfort of their homes to
the acute distress of their vaca-r
tjpns," says Dr. Lee,
How, then, is a fellow to rest?
Vpy just resting," says our expert
fiviser. Simply don't work either
your muscles or your mind. Take
tteasy. Loaf, idle, do nothing! In
pther words,' be a "weary Willie."
f Did He Mean It?
In Indiana a man wanting a
wedding license is required to tell
if he has been married before and
if so what has become of his first
wife. A Pike-co. man filled in that
space this way:
. Married before? "Yes."
Where's first wife? "Gone to
the grate beyond."
