THE RICHMOND PALLADIUM AND SUN-TELEGRAM, RICHMOND, IND., TUESDAY, JUNE 20, 1922.

"Civilization of nations Is exempli
fied by their type of national dog. The
dog of each country has been taken at
a plastc stage and molded, kicked and
cuffed into the type of dog desired, the
type exemplary of the civilization it
self," Rev. Emil Baumann, pastor of
the Forrest Avenue Presbyterian
church at Dayton, Ohio, declared at
the noon luncheon of the Rotary club,
Tuesday. Rev. Baumann's subject was
"The' Future of "America." in his
effort to foretell the future of our coun
try, he pointed to the effects of the
various influences which effect our
Rev. Baumann pointed to tiie deter
mination of the British which i typi
fied in the English bulldog, the placid
calm demeanor of the Scotch collie as
exemplary of the Scotch ' people, the
ferret-like Dachshund of Germany, the
plquacy of the French poodle, the fight
of the Irish terrier, all exemplifying
particular types of people. "Xow,
what is the national dog of America?"
nsked Rev. Bauman. "You'll agree
with me that his name is 'Perp.' He
represents no one particular type or,
characteristic of mind. But neverthe
less he is exemplary of our type of
people. We are a mixed people and
our national type is in the making.
We Will Make Race
"The fact that the offspring of for
eign people coming to America change
their national characteristics within a
period of two generations is remark
able. It is an indication of the ad
vancement of a new race, the Ameri
can race. That race will be what we
of today do to shape its destihy," he
said. Rev. Baumann appealed to the
successful and wealthy men of America
to give to good charities and institu
tions which stood for the advancement
of our American civilization.

Arthur Curme, v chairman of the
committee to care for the clean-up
work nt Camp Ki-Ro, reported that
the Kiwanis club had agreed to aid
the Rotarians in the work of cleaning
up the boys' camp before the camp
sessions begin. It was decided that
the Rotary club will do its work on
Tuesday, June 27, leaving Richmond
at 6 o'clock Tuesday morning from
the First Presbyterian church and
staying on the job until the prelimin
