LEARN TO PLAY
This is a tense age. Life is pitch
ed in a high key. The human instru
ment is strung taut and under this
tension the strings break easily.
There is small relief from stress
and strain in the life of the average
adult. His neck is in the collar and
the harness creaks in irritating fash
ion as he pulls his heavy load.
Then when the day's tasks are
done, to what do overwrought peo
ple turn for diversion? Do they re
lax? Sometimes; more frequently
though, they engage in some form
of amusement that merely aggravates
their physical, mental and nervous
tension. They do not know how to
relax, how to let down. And
Unless one "lets down" one is quite
certain to "blow up." The explosion
is likely to ensue inside the domestic
portals or among one's fellow work
ers in the factory, the office, the
sfore. Misunderstandings follow;
friends' are lost.
And how might people "let down"
without "blowing up?" One said he
did relax, that he went to the movies
and baseball games, theaters, and
similar exciting events. He engaged
in vicarious exercise, passive amuse
ment, sterilized recreation. This
may have helped some. But it was
not the best form of relaxation be
, cause the man did not let go, did not
express himself, did not use his im
agination, and did not play.
I "game. They do not play nor do not
know how to play. Or, if they do
know, they are too dignified. Some
- people maintain a kind of rigid, un-
bending dignity even when engaged
in dancing. They are the kind who
know not the ineffable joy of donning
old clothes and going into the woods,
where one may whoop and sing and
cavert without fear of being mis
taken, in these days of supersolemni-
ty, for a harmless halfwit. Too much
dignity and selfrestraint have spoiled

Learn to play! It's nature's great
est safety valuve.
Happy invigorating play is a human
necessity. Man had always possessed
the play inclination- The desire to
laugh and sing, to whistle and dance,
is natural It promotes perpetual youth
when one "obeys that impulse". It
keeps the arteries elastic, which is
the medical men's way of expressing
youth. One of these prophets of glad
ness phrases it thus: "A man is young
Because he plays." A man doestn't
play because he is young; he is the
product of his own actions. The old
man who sits down after dinner,
groutchy because he makes a noise,
nas already "passed on". He ought
to be Oslerized. He ought to be down
on the floor playing with the children,
piaymg like them, adding to the noise.
Paying the games of men and
women is good. Playing the childrens
games and in childrens ways is still
better. Golf and tennis are beneficial.
Une-old-cat, hop-scotch, duck-on-a
rock, tag, run-sheep-run, even dain
running and jumping, are even more
beneficial. Nobody should be too
grown-up" to play in that fashion.

shams and false pride and the thou
sands of other little arts of deceit are

largely upon what prison treatment
has done for him whether he is a man
