While there are exceptions to all rules, the man Vbo boasts that he never took a vacation in all his life is apt to be a cash squeezing automaton with clabber instead of blood in his veins. Marcus M. Marks, a man of large affairs in New York, an earnest worker for civic betterment, wrote re cently: "There are many busy men who brag of never having taken a vacation. In stead of being proud of their continu ous industry, they should rather be ashamepl of their vicious absorption, for an occupation becomes a vice when it completely possesses the soul of a man and occupies all his time and thought The vacation habit is not an extravagant one. On the contrary, proper vacations are of decided eco nomic value. Vacations brighten a man. They tend to make his work more attractive to him and to make him more attractive in his work. They give him a reserve supply of strength and patience which is bound to bring a net profit It must be conceded that a man can in the long run do better work in fifty-one weeks each year than he can in fifty-two weeks of steady employment" All work and no play undoubtedly Jack a dull man. Whether you work for yourself or for somebody else you should insist upon getting out of the rut of routine employment at least a week or two every year, preferably In the summer, when the great out doors beckons. The rest, the recrea tion, the change of scene and environ ment, will make you a better man or woman physically, mentally, morally and spiritually. You will be able to do more efficient work when you return. You will gain a broader outlook on Vacations pay. Lest somebody beat us in springing the old gag as to the rareness of a day In June, wo do It first. mmmm the -From.
