Truths Pondered While
"Then gently scan
your brother man"—
-By Mr. Modestus-
Labor is quite inclined to empha
size the importance of its functions.
More arrogantly, the owners of
capital, and managers of industry
assert what some of them have open
ly called their "divine right."
Employers of labor have insisted
on dealing with "one man" at a time,
in hiring labor.
Politicians and publicists have
played up "individualism."
And the laws of property have
recognized the property rights of an
Even a municipality, engaging in
business, becomes a "corporation."
It is said to be acting in its "pri
vate and individual capacity."
A corporation is endowed by law
with the qualities of "a person."
But these are only like the various
limbs of the same body.
Underneath all these fractional
sections is the unifying entity
Containing all classes, like cells in
a body, is the social unit.
Relating all individuals to each
other, is the central source and con
Directing all functions, is a neces
sity deeper than any one life or class.
Surviving all changes, outriding all
revolutions, is the community of life.

Q.—What is a central body?
A.—A central body is a body made
up of delegates from local unions in
given community or in a district
which a community is the center
Delegates must be from local unions
belonging to unions in affiliation with
the American Federation of Labor and
from local unions which are directly
chartered by the federation,
question seems to call for mention
other city delegate bodies. Trade
groups form local representativ
bodies in the same way. In cities
large enough there are label trades
councils, made up of delegates from
all local unions in occupations using
a union label. Similarly, there are
printing trades councils, building
trades councils ,and n^etal trades
councils. At least two trades, car
penters and painters, often have dis
trict councils. All of these are dele
gate bodies whose authority goes
back to local unions, but which may
not transgress authority vested
national and international unions.

Ojibway Indians Still
Stage "Hiawatha" Story
Canada has its own Oberammergau.
For many years the Ojlbway Indians
of the Garden River preserve, along
side the city of Sault Ste. Marie, Ont.,
have been presenting a riverside stage
version of'Longfellow's poem, "Hia
watha," in their own language. The
first performance was put on at the
Canadian Soo in honor of a visit from
Longfellow's daughter. The poem Is a
glorification of the Soo area and Lake
Superior. The River Kwasind was the
St. Mary's on which the Soo is built
and the rapids mentioned in the poem
are the Soo rapids. The city's old
Indian name, Pawitlng, appears In the
poem. It was the Ojibways who in
spired the poem and it is their leg
ends and stories which are told in it.
The Soo Indians presented the play
in several American cities years ago
and once they appeared in London,
England. Every character In the piece
Is taken by an OJibway, and the whole
play Is given in the Indian language.
The action of the play is explained to
the audience through a loud speaker.
Long List of "Nevers"
Not Hard to Complete
The story of an American back
woodsman who had never seen a horse
or heard of prohibition has no monop
oly on "Nevers." Great Britain has
lots of "Nevers." The late Lord Ox
ford never used a telephone. He was
probably the only public man of these
days who could say the same. People
brought to Scotland from St. Kilda
had never seen a train, a motor car,
or a horse. This is not nearly so
strange as the fact that, three years
ago, a pretty Lincolnshire girl of sev
enteen, who had lived all her life In
a village in the Wolds, took her first
Journey by train to Cleethorpes.
Also she had never ridden In a mo
tor car. An old lady of Longford
near Nuneaton, who died not long ago
at the age of one hundred, had never
seen the sea, and never been more
than twenty-flve miles from her home.
A girl of twenty, who lives twenty
miles from Plymouth, has never visit
ed that town or any place on the
"The Baroque Florence"
The city of Lecce In Apulia has do*
servedly been called "the Baroque
Florence" by Gregorovius, for certain
ly that style of architecture and
sculptural decoration is on Its
churches and its large and small pal
aces, although Romanesque is the
prevalent style of art In Apulia. The
white soft Lecce stone is finely adapt
ed to the petrified embroidery and lace
which the chisel has engraved upon
It. Among the most notable examples
Is the church of St. Croce, the semi
nary and Its well, the Palazzo deJla
Prefettura and the Churches of St
Chlara and Caterlna. But when at
Lecce the visitor should not fall to
take the trip to Galllpoli to see its
Greek fountain, the cathedral of St
Agata, by Genulnl and Its famous
Horned Owl Fearedl
Among Indians the horned owl was
considered a personification of the
evil one. They feared its influence
and regarded its visits to dwellings as
portentous of disaster or death.
Today the great horned owl is con
sidered the least desirable of all the
owls, because it competes with man in
its search for food. The United States
biological survey classifies the great
horned owl as a "restraining influence
in the wilderness, both on game and
the enemies of game, for It destroys
both, and thus does not destroy
the balance of nature." On a farm
or game preserve it becomes a menace,
and there it cannot be tolerated.
Tribute to the Dog
"The intelligence of the dog,'" says
Albert Payson Terliune, "is so uncan
ny at certain times that it takes pre
cedence over anything possessed by
man. Dogs feel states of mind, atti
tudes, emotions which must be exhibit
ed in clumsy words to men. Long,
long ago, their first ancestors made
their compact of friendiihip and af
fection with men. That friendship has
grown Into an intelligent bond as well
as an emotional one. And the brains of
the dogs have commingled with the
brains of mtn. In many Instances, the
dog's brains have not been inferior."

will provide long term employment
