SOCIETY
By Berton Braley.
You fight for seasons to get in,
You bear each sneer and flout,
But when you've made it you. begin
To keep the others out;
You go to dinners, balls and such
And meet the same old set,
And, though they don't amount to
much,
They're quite the best you'll get
You plot and counterplot and plan
For social triumph small,
Else you will be an "also ran,"
Not in the stretch at all;
You dress and eat and dance and
smile;
You scarce have time for breath;
You laugh with zest and all the
while
You're simply bored to death!
You have no use for old-time friends,
Though comradeship is sweet,
Unless their friendship serves your
ends
In joining the elite;
You must let love and kindness by
Be hard as hard can be;
Forget the truth and live a lie-f-
And that's Society!

PRIMA DONNA SAYS FOREIGN
SUCCESS COSTS AWFUL PRICE
Having studied music for a year in
Berlin and Florence, Lois Ewejl, the
American prima .donna, lifts, a -voice
of warning to the American girl who
believes artistic -succe5s depends up
on a year abroad. "Unless a- girl has
infinite wealth with which to pave
her way to. musical success she can
hardly expect to gain it," says Miss
Ewell. "It's not. only money that's
hard" to hold on to. It's still harder
to keep Americans ideals and moral
ity. The American music student who
gets a European reputation gets it at
an awful price."
