ous contests . that are being staged in all parts
of the city, in which various kinds of sports are
being used to give recreation, show that we are
learning the real value of athletic contests to di
vert our minds from our work.
Recreation for All
The manifest interest which boys and girls
and men and women everywhere in the city are
taking in recreational efforts proves that the
community is awake to the value of diversion asj

Americans as a people have been very slow
in seeing the advantages of amateur sports as a
'means to increase their own happiness and to
' prolong their lives.
Europeans are far ahead of us in this par
ticular. Pedestrian tours are one of the most
common forms of recreation in which the people
of Europe indulge. They take advantage of
every holiday to spend the hours in the open, en
joying the scenery or visiting shrines and spots
v that are dear to them for their national associa
tions. Sports .also are more generally indulged in
' than is the case here. Few of us take an active
and real part in sports. Most of us prefer to
; watch the baseball game or the field meet. In
other countries, the people enter into sports with
vim and glee. They want to share they joy of
competition and join in the struggle of the con

Reaching 100 Years
If yoU believe that only a dozen or more per
sons in the United States are' 100 years old,
change your opinion now. According to an Asso
ciated Press dispatch, there are 3,500 men and
women in the United States who are older than
100 years, and Dr. Royal S. Copeland, health
commissioner of New York City, is quoted as
authority for the assertion.
Right living and right thinking, he asserts,
would give the average person a chance to reach
the century mark with "eye undimmed and nat
ural forces unabated."
Why do so few of us reach a ripe old age?
Dr. Copeland intimated that violation of hygiene
is one of the big reasons. If we would pay more
attention to the rules of health, all of us could
lengthen the span of our lives considerably. We
die comparatively young, because we .violate the
rules of health, and must pay the price for our
At that, we are living longer than did our
ancestors. In New York, for instance, the aver
age span is 53 years now compared with 42 years
which was the record 50 years ago, says Dr.
Copeland. But the rate at which we are increas
ing our tenure of life is entirely too slow to sat
isfy medical authorities.
A change in our habits, a better understand
ing of the laws of hygiene, and more determined
effort to combat disease and strive for longevity,
, will bring about the desired end.

THE SPECIAL FIFTEEN
Too many of us merely live days. As though to live were but
to pass with the hours!
For my part, I find the greatest inspiration In the accomplish
ment of definite things. I like to map out a particular job and go
to It and stay in It, until I am- able to say that one more definite
task is finished.
On the other hand, I find too many times that I have gone
through a day without these milestones to mark my way.
I sat in my library the other day with books piled everywhere
everyone bristling with unrevealed treasure for me. I looked into
several and noted the dates written on the front leaves telling when
I had purchased them. I sat for quite a time reading from one that
had long ago attracted my attention. Then I let this book drop to
my lap and speculated as to the time necessary to finish it. I figured
that if I Epent but fifteen minutes each day on a book I would finish
dozens more than I do each year.
And tiien the idea came that It would be an excellent plan to
reserve at least fifteen minutes each and every day for the accom
plishemnt of some one thing.
Tifteen minutes for the purpose of practicing at writing to im
prove one's expression in conversation fifteen minutes in which some
flowers might be sent to some loved one fifteen minutes out for a
walk where quiet meditation might help to reveal one's own self to
one's self fifteen minutes dedicated to the spiritual side of one's
It will surprise you to learn what a daily fifteen minute period

partially awake and maybe this fifteen minute plan will wake you
Fifteen minutes may not seem a very long or important period,
but it can be. The tide cgainst Napoleon at Waterloo turned in less
time. And it was this same Napoleon who gave as his reason for
