SIMPLICITY FOR UNDERSTAND
ING. Why make life so dense and
complicated that we cannot see day
light through it and cannot under
stand its simplicity.
A senator, Bourne, gives this rule:
"No two people in the world are ex
actly alike; consequently each indi
vidual has a different point of view or
ilea as to what constitutes his own
particular personal or selfish inter
est" Is this so? If 1,000 persons look at
a red apple, there is but one idea 'to
all a red apple at least, that is the
normal majority idea. There are not
1,000 differing ideas of this red ap
ple there is unity of agreement.
We need for life a few generally
conceded useful things, such as
drink, food, shelter, activity, rest
This does not mean that life's ne
cessities are dependent on 1,000,000
differing ideas from 1,000,000 people,
but a few ideas from a million people.
We group ourselves as to our per

many of us throw out our chest and
expect the admiration of our fellow
men when we say we don't believe
in knocking a man when he is down,
but very often we forget that we keep
on kicking a weaker person until we
are sure he is down.
When we think of our own T. R.
we cannot help but think of hyphen
ated Americans continually knock
ing against a certain class of hy
phens. He was always hasty in con-
victing a man before trial, calling
men undesirable citizens and even
refusing an invitation to dine with a
club because one of its members
was under a cloud. The man under
a cloud was Lorimer.
When thinking of Lorimer we think
of a booster who gave many a man
a lift, but was turned down cold
when he got in bad. They ignore him
because he was exposed, not be
cause he was dishonest We know it
is next to impossible to be absolutely
be honest and rich or a politician. "
W can learn a good lesson from
Bill Lorimer. Even though we don't
believe in lys politics, we must admit
he had an opportunity to knock, but
did not All the world loves a booster.
