of seven years of service in the
backwash and misery of war. Seven
years of contending with economic
degeneration, with social disinte
gration, with incessant political dis
location, with all of its seething and
ferment of individual and class con

primary motivation of social forces,
and the necessity for broader
thought upon their great issues to
humanity. And from it all I em

also that I am an American indiv

steadily developing the ideals that
constitute progressive Individualism.
No doubt, individualism run riot,
with no tempering principle, would
provide a long category of inequal
ities, of tyrannies, dominations and
injustices. America, however, has
tempered the whole conception of
individualism by the injection of a
definite principle, and from this
principle it follows that attempts at
domination, whether in government
or the processes of industry and
commerce, are under an "insistent
curb. If we would have the values
of individualism, their stimulation

On the eve of his departure for
Europe, John McCormack was guest
of honor at a reception given by the
Catholic Club of New York. It was
attended by many church dignitaries
and numerous of Mr. McCormack'o
friends in the operatic and musical
world. He sang several of his well
known songs and was assisted in the
musical program by Reinald Wer
renrath, the popular baritone and
Marion Te'va. of the Metropolita-i
Opera. The Irish tenor will remain

hand and intellect, to the high de
velopment of thought and spiritual

that Arm and fixed ideal of Ameri
can individualisman equality of
opportunity. If 'tve would have
these values we most soften its
hardness and stimulate progress
through that sense of servioe that
lies in our people.
Therefore, it is not the individ
ualism of other countries for which
I would speak, but the individual
ism of America. Our Individualism
differs from all others because it
embraces these great ideals: that
while we build our society upon the
attainment of the individual, we
shall safeguard to every indivttOAt
an equality of opportunity to take
that position in the community to
which his Intelligence, character,
ability, and ambition entitle him
that we keep the social solution free
from frozen strata of classes that
we shall stimulate effort of each in

through an enlarging sense of re
sponsibility and understanding we,
shall assist him to this attainment
while he in turn must stand up te
the emery wheel of competition.
