Dr. Copeland’s New Year’s Message

P
^ iiy rtOYAL S. COPELAND, M. D.
i United States Senator from New York.
former Commissioner of Health. New York City.
,jjHREE hundred years ago tomorrow, young children, the first
born of Plymouth, were celebrating New Year’s Day. With all
its sacrifices, life to them was just as sweet as it is to our chil
f tlren, bom three centuries later.
OR COPELAND.
After ail, it is not the year or the generation
in which we live that determines our happinest.
It is the spirit with which we face life that de
termines our contentment of mind.
On this New Year’s Day every newspaper
in North America will record the achievements
of the year just ended. Every paper will record
prophecies of the year to come.
They will talk about money, about invention,
about discovery, about politics. The acts of
Congress, Wall Street, the World Court, Dis
armament, the Eighteenth Amendment, and a
thousand other things will engage the serious
attention of able editors. Columns will be writ
ten to illuminate our minds regarding each and
I all of these matters.
I But, in the last analysis, these are not the
final things. Today, tomorrow, next year, and
from the beginning of time there are and have
been but two things of vital importance: lne state ot your body
and the state of your soul—what else really matters?
What is a man profited if he shall gain the whole world and lose
his own soul? What is a man profited if he gain wealth and educa
uun, ianas ana degrees, u ne n.v-i
not health?
I have nothing but praise for all
the wonderful achievements of the
past. I am eager for those things
that make for progress and the wel
fare of the race. But, O! my coun
trymen, why are we so neglectful
of the Individual and public health?)
What is better for you and for the
nation than to be rich In health and
vigor?
To a remarkable extent the physi
cal health has to do with the mind.
That old saying from Junius Juve
nalis Is worthy of serious thought.
He speaks of the sound mind In the
sound body. There is no doubt that
the sound body Is likely to he gov
erned by a sound mind. In many in-)
stances, evil thoughts and wicked
deeds may be traced to physical dis
ease.
To determine to cultivate health is
one of the best resolutions Let us
join In tbit resolve today.

Madge Runs into More Grief When She Beards the Lioness
in Her Den in an Attempt to Rescue the Boys
from Her Mot Iter-in-Late.
AS I WAITED for an answer to'
my tap upon my mother-ln
law’s door, I was conscious
that It was not her probable—almost
certain—attitude of captious critic-;
cism which 1 was dreading. It was I
concerned only with what Dicky's
attitude would be toward this little
domestic imbroglio in which he
four.d himself involved because my '
enforced Interview with hi^ young
nephew.William Harrison, had left;
him with Roderick and Junior—and,
his mother—upon his hands.
Behind me I heard soft rustlings
and the almost noiseless closing of
doors, and knew that Mary and
Katherine had gone into their rooms.
So there was no one save myself to
see the frown uptn Dicky's face as
be opened the door to me.
"Oh,** he said, -nd the expletive
was heavy with disapproval, although
he managed to give it a courteous in
flection. *‘I trust you have finished
your interview end can turn your
attention to this rather difficult
problem."*
He was holding his temper In with
an effort. I saw that plainly.
Never a patient man. 1 guessed that
he had been much Irritated by his
mother in the time that I had been
absent, and not being able to vent
»ny of his choler upon her—for
Dicky i* scrupulously deferential to
his mother—I presented a fair target
for his wrath—if he let It slip
I found myself less concerned with
the problem presented by the alterca
tion of the two small boys than with
this question: Would Dicky be able
to master his temper and preserve
the delightful atmosphere of our
“second honeymoon*" which had
spelled such happiness for me since
our reconciliation? On one thing I
was determined. I would give him
no provocation to wrath which I
could avoid.
* “| came up the second I finished
talking to William." I said, carefully
omitting any mention of my colloquy
with Katherine and Mary.
♦•Was It necessary to deliver so
one a lecture Just at this Juncture?""
♦Dicky queried next, his voice Icily
inqUi Dicky at His Old Trick*.
It is an old gibe, this of his. one
which he has thrown at me many
times. One which in the past has
never failed to goad me to explosive
anger But I put an iron hand upon
my leaping temper and forced my
voice to casual calmness.
••I am afraid It was.” 1 said. “Will
tant was very much upset and I had
to explain things to him "*
••Margaret"" My mother-in-law’s
roh-e cut through our colloquy as If

that I am extremely busy. If you

bie with Richard, I suggest that you
go away again.”
I knew better than to take her a!
her word, much as I longed to go out
the door and rlam It after me. In
stead I left Dicky—I wondered If he
were as grateful for the interruption
as I was—and advanced toward my
mother-in-law who was towering
over Junior and Roderick. The two
small boya, flushed and tearful, were
seated opposite each other, their
stormy eyes and averted faces show
ing that the anger which had led to
their fight was still unabated.
"Please. Mother.” I coaxed, "Isn't
there something I can do about this?
I’m so sorry you were troubled with
It.”
Grandma Tries Again,
"What elas waa there to do?” she
demanded. "Tou were gone on some
fool s errand, Richard took the whole
affair as a huge joke," her eyes went
scathingly to her hapless son, "and
your father caret illy kept hls skirts
clear of the whole affair. Somebody
had to preserve discipline, and that's
why I brought both the boys up here.
I haven't Inquired as to the reason
for their altercation. Boys will be
boys, you know. I'm only insisting
that they shake hands as all decent
people do when a game or a fight Is
ended. Now. Roderick, now Richard
Second." she turned back to the two
small boya. "You've had time to
think this over. Aren’t you ready
to shake hands with each other?"
With amusement and relief I noted
that she had not given them a direct
command. If she had done so I
would have had to enforce Junior’s
obedience, at least, for we never have
permitted him to disobey a command
of his grandmother’s. I knetv her
doting ove for her favorite grand
son—I may truthfully call Junior
that—and guessed that she would
not risk punitive measures for him
try giving him a direct command In
his present rebellious mood.
Her appeal, however, fen upon
ears purposely deaf to any softening
entreaty. The frown upon each ab
surd little face deepened and they
shook their heads decidedly.
My mother-in-law turned to me
with outspread hands.
"You s«-e,“ she said, "the results
of your absence from home. How
can you expect a child deprived of
hls mother to be as obedient as one
who is under her care all the time?”
I made no attempt to answer
her amazing attack which I knew to
be born of unreasoning temper In
stead of conviction. All my facul
ties were fused In one question.
Would Dicky, by silence, acquiesce
In her dictum, or would he in old
fashioned parlance ''stand up” for
me?

The Beauties of South Africa.
TO THE north and east of Cape
Town, about which I wrote re
cently. are some of the most
beautiful valley spots to be found
In the world. These are known as
the Drakensteln. Paarl and Hex
River Valleys, and they combine ex
ceptional beauty of scenery with a
richness of agriculture which has
made them exceedingly attractive to
colonists.
Fleeing from Intolerable condltlone
in France, large numbers of Hugue
nots migrated to South Africa and It
was in these fruitful valleys that
they settled. Their Influence is seen
In the orchards and vineyards. The
French brought these agricultural
developments from the homeland and
found In South Africa Just the com
bination of climate and aoll needed
for the cultivation or the fruit and
wine grapes.
The principal cities of this Valley
country are Paarl, Worcester and
Wellington. Each his a gorgeous
setting. Paarl is a Dutch commu
nity. the name meaning "pearl.” The
main beauty of these valleys lies in
the majesty of the mountains. The
tall granite peaks seem to rise up
from one's very feet. They are over
powering, but not depressing—there
la nothing sinister about them.
Back of this valley country lies the
Great Karoo, a central table-land
which has been largely given over to
sheep grazing. To the casual traveler
this flat plain with its odd little hill
ocks every now and again, seems in
capable of providing nourishing fod

der for live stock. But the grass Is
better than it seems and annually
feeds millions of eheep.
Just about due East of Cape Town,
where the tip of Arlca swings around
to be washed by the waters of the
Indian Ocean, lies Port Elizabeth.
This is another Important commer
cial and industrial center, but it Is
more also. It Is a popular holiday re
sort. The bathing facilities are par
ticularly good at Port Elizabeth.
The city boasts another point of
unucual interest. It is the Snake
Park. Here hundreds of snakes are
kept In their little houses inside the
concrete walled lnclosures. It is. of
course, strictly for scientific pur
poses. but it serves nevertheless to
draw curious visitors. Every day
large numbers of people may be seen
leaning over the concrete wails of
the inclosures watching the attend
ants fearlessly handing the venom
ous snakes.
Still further up ths coast. In a
northeasterly direction, are Port
Alfred and East London, both sea
ports and recreation centers. At
East London Is the popular Orient
Beach whose long-rolling waves have
made surf-board riding ons of the
characteristics of the place.

Happy New Year! By Fanny Darrell, i
THE last day of the Old Year! A day of
sadness, yet a day of rejoicing. Sadness
for those whose past year has been but a
uieless striving; a year of vain regrets and re
pinings. Rejoicing for those who have forged
ahead and placed themselves firmly on the road
to victory.
You see. the years are what you make of
them. Those who • fail blame everything and
everybody else but themselves and bemoan the
fate that has made them miserable. New Year’s
Eve is one of sad remembrance to them.
But why not meditate a bit! See where you
have failed and determine that the New Year
will bring you a realization of your dreams.
Take Love into your confidence, for Love is
the eternai conqueror. Where Love is, there can
be no failure. So when the clock hands point to
the midnight hour, then and there determine
that you’ll make good—and watch the glad hap
piness of Love’s face as he smiles from the clock
and promises you his help!
Mav the coming year bring you all the hap
piness for which you hope! May Love ever abide
with you all and bring you the realization of
your dearest dreams! And may it be the very
happiest year of all. this New Year of 19301 •

Tidbits for \
New Year's
Day
The Home-Kitchen
By Alice Lynn Barry
A REPERTOIRE of little delica

New Year's Day entertain
ing. This may be In the form of
a special tea. a dinner or—what
Is more likely—an uninterrupted
succession of callers all day. to
most people the most delightful of
ail forms of entertaining.
Pleasantly informal hospitality
means keeping a sideboard graced
with a few plates of attractive little
cookies, and a pitcher of homey egg
nog. A sufficient quantity can lie
made up early in the day, and the
pitcher refilled from time to time.
Here Is a recipe for about one gallon.
Flavoring Is a matter of taste or dis
cretion—it may be one quart of non
alcoholic sherry, brand/, cvignac or
w hat-have-you.
Egg-Nog.
12 fresh eggs*.
2 quarts milk.
1 quart cream.
* cupfuls of sugar.
1 quart beverage flavoring.
1 tablespoonful of vanilla.
1 tablespoonful of powdered nut
meg.
Separate the yolks from egg
whites. Beat the yolks, add the
sugar, milk, cream and other In
gredients, and last the beaten egg
whltcs.
Grape and Cider Punch.
3 quarts white grape Juke.
3 quarts sweet cider.
4 lemons.
4 oranges.
1 cupful of sugar.
1 quart of ginger ale.
Mix the strained lemon and orange
juice with the sugar, then add grape
juice, cider and ginger ale. Pour
over large cube of ice In punchfcowL
A large tray of tiny sandwiches,
either little triangles or the open
faced dry canape variety, la very at
tractive. Also it is preferred by many
to the sweet accompaniments.
The more variety on the tray, the
pleasanter arrangement it makes,
and fillings should be selected for
color effect as well as variety in
flavor. A few dainties like caviar,
crabmeat. chicken - livers, anchovy
paste, various kinds of cheese, tuna
fish, each make very tasty tidbits.
For garnish, slices of hard boiled egg.
or slices of stuffed olives, strips of
plmiento provide color and flavor.
Cut bread thin, then trim off
crusts and cut In several different
shapes. Either In small triangles,
or In rounds with a biscuit cutter, or
in fancy shapes as desired. Lobster,
crabmeat or tuna fish must be flaked
very fine, mixed with a Utile lemon
juice and some mayonnaise so as to
spread easily. Caviar needs but a
sprinkling of lemon Juice and either
a slice of hard-boiled egg for gar
nish. or powdered eggyolk sprinkled
over the top. Thin slivers of sausage
placed on bread, then cut Into fancy
shapes fitting the slice of bread per
fectly— Introduce variety into the
sandwich tray.
Also there may be two or three
small glass dishes containing relishes
—small pickles, olives, pickled wal
nuts—only those things which are
easy to handle without requiring
extra service.
If several kinds of bread are used,
they will add color and variety to the
sandwich tray. Brown bread, either
the plain or raisin and nut variety.
Is especially good with cheese, the
rye bread goes well with hard cheese
and with caviar, white bread with
other fish. All sandwiches should be
quite small, very evenky cut and at
tractively placed on the lace or pa
per-lace coveral trav.
