readers of ti)m wvrld classified

Tho year Just closed will ever loom largo In human history. To tho
American people it was prognant with prosperity and problemn both
polltlcnl and tocial. As wo enter tho new year both tho prosperity and
the problems remain.
It Is good to pauao for a moment at tho end of ono row and glanco
back along tho way; noting tho crooks and uneven depth of tho furrow
wo have opened; calculating how tho new ono may bo mado to nvold simi
lar defects nnd thus approach moro nearly to tho standard of perfection.
Tulsa la representatlvo of America. Tho 'prosperity wo havo enjoyed
h&s been tho prosperity of America. Tho mistakes wo have suffered havo
been tho mistakes of America. Tho opportunities offered us aro tho op
portunities of America.
Tho past Is behind us. Tho Hook of Time lias been closed forover
upon 1919. Tho spotless page of 1920 lies open before) us on which may
bo written what wo will. Opportunity, individually and collectively, In
Buch nttractlvo form nnd unlimited quantity as the cyo of man never
before beheld beckons us on.
Wo hesitate, If at till, because of problems that appear to threaten
the stability of society and the security of Industry and commerce.
But let us not bo dismayed. Let us(not think too much of those prob
lems. They must but faced and a solution found, to bo suro. Hut In turn

them with a will; In understanding fully that both obligations nnd op

discover theso problems molting into mist boforo our ey s.
He?o is tho thought to lay hold of and cling to everlastingly;
I'roblems in tho mom nra solved by Industry., thrift and frugality In
Wo don't need legislative enactments. We don't need tribunals, and
boards, and commissions, nnd constitutional ennctmonts.
Industry, thrift, frugality tho trinity of every past tmccess, is yet po

Kvory man or woman in tho world today Is existing at the exact
standpoint of opportunity. Prevailing notions to tho contrary are tho
result of nn Improper nnd falso mental attitude and have no existence In
fact. .Out of tho falso conception has grown up a false philosophy, and
this false philosophy has created our problems.
Let tho Individual lay hold of tho opportunity that docs exist at hand,
