Sarah Bernhardt Grows
Paris, Oct. 19.-(By the Associat
ed Press).-Day by day, in every
-way, Sarah Bernhardt seems to grow
.younger and younger. Next Monday
.she will be 77 years old, yet she is
von the threshold of a busy winter of
varied and exacting work. Listening
io her plans for the season, one
.would think the great actress had
just attained her prime and was fu
riously struggling in a tide of activi
ties with the hope of being swept on
to fame and a career of greatness.
In the first place, the incompar
able French artiste expects to appear
in four plays during the coming sea
son, creating new roles, and reviving
others. Somehow she is going to find
time to continue her sculpturing and
Last summer, during-her stay at
Belle Isle, she finished a bust of her
son, and now has turned her fingers
to a fresh piece of clay. Her new
jiovel will be published next month.
-Already her pen is busy on the manu
script for another volume. It is to be
"a book of advice to actors. Above all
>else, Mme. Bernhardt will counsel
vthem "lo be sincere."
"I ou^ht to go to America," she
/said tho other day. "America de
mands me, and I certainly shall go
there. I should have gone this year,
but I ir.ust reckon with my age.
Perhaps I will not have time to do all
I wish to do."
Mada.ae Bernhardt will make her
first appearance of the season upon
the stage of her own theatre in Paris
in a revival of Maurice Rostand's
""Glory." Later, with Lucien Guitry,
she will give the first performance
of a play written for them by Lu
cien Guitry's son, Sacha Guitry.
, "It is a long and fine dialogue,"
Mme,. Bernhardt said, in describing
the Guitry work.
Her third role of the season will
be "The Sphinx" in the play of that
name by Maurice Rostand, and after
that she will appear in "The Man,"
written by her granddaughter, Mme.
"Verneuil, wife of the playwright.
The Greatest Economist.
Henry Ford does not love Wall
Street, nor Wall Street Henry Ford;
yet from the Wall Street Journal
comes perhaps the highest praise the
manufacturer has received.
That publication credits Ford with
having expounded "the greatest
economic truth in the world today
a truth that seems generally to have
escaped observation," and with be
ing literally "the most practical eco
nomist in the world."
The "truth" referred to is the idea
set forth by Ford in a recent inter
view, that the greatest benefit a
wealthy man can confer on his fel
low-men is to expand enterprise and
increase opportunities, for employ
ment. "Work itself," says the Jour
nal, "is the greatest educational
force in the world, and the opportu
nity to work-opportunity to labor
and secure the results of labor
have made the United States the pos
sessor of most of the value that is
:in the world today."
Very likely. And yet, somehow, a
thoughtful person may not be quite
satisfied with this veiw. A doubt aris
es as to whether life isn't really more
than jobs-more than automobiles
even, and more than bank accounts.
What if the worker, by the na
ture of his work, is made a mere hu
man automaton? And what if, hav
ing done his work and earned his
pay, he doesn't know what to do with
his iv.oney or his leisure time? May
be economics is not concerned with
that problem, but surely philanthro
Henry Ford, though, to do him
credit, has never posed as a philan
thropist. Whatever his shortcomings,
Ford seems to be honest. Where
fore he might assent to a judgment
that pronounced his whole career,
with all its incidental benefits to so
ciety, essentially selfish. The Ford
family works for the Ford family,
and the more it perfects manufactur
ing processes and the better it pays
its standardized labor the more mon
ey it accumulates.
And that, too, may bc all right. It
may be that highly efficient selfish
ness is what the world needs, at this
stage of development.-Greenville

One great trouble, in times past,
has been the indifference of farmer
methods as to how their organization
was being conducted. They have let
its affairs get into the hands of a few
