The Enthusiasm of Youth
i>r. James M. Kieran, president of Hunter College,
New York, not long ago finished his 50th year ot service
as an educator; and, as men will on such occasions, he
looked backward over his life, smiled tolerantly and re
marked, “There is nothing new under the sun.
Fifty years of watching young people give a man a
philosophy all his own. Dr. Kieran, considering the ways
of youth, pointed out:
“When I was in college, when you were in college,
we thought we were the most important people in the!
world, and the world just couldn’t get along without us.
“For a few years that continues. Then we get quiet
er, more conservative, and look down on these youngsters
and say, very wisely, 'You’ll get over it.’ And they do.
No one who ever stopped to look back over his youth
will dispute that statement, purely; and somehow, when
you stop to think about it, that is one of the most melan
choly things about life. Youth does “get over it, always.
There is no enthusiasm in the world quite like the
enthusiasm of youth. There is no ardor like youth’s ardor,
there is no idealism like the idealism of youth.
These are forces wnich sometimes seem to have the
power to remake the face of the world—if they could
only be preserved and guided into the right channels.
Nothing could stand before them. They are coupled, often
enough with the faith that can move mountains.
But it happens that, as Dr. Kieran says, youth gets
over it. Youth finds that the adult world has a way of;
being a little bit suspicious of enthusiasm and ardor and
idealism. It comes forth radiant, with those things in its
hands, and finds them a drug on the market. And so,
by and by, youth gets over it, learns how to focus its eyes
on the main chance, and grows up.
There is a very real loss there. It is good for young
people to feel that they are the most important people
in the world. For—we might as well admit it—they really

Wanted: A Naval Policy
The American people do not seem to have been able,
to make up their minds, during th eyears since the World
War, just what they intend to do with their navy. For a
brief space it was the greatest navy in the world: then
it was cut down sharply, and since then we have waver
ed between cutting it still farther and building it up again!
to the limit of our ability.
There is now pending legislation w hich would reduce
the naval appropriation for the coming year; and Rear
Admiral William A. Moffett chief of the navy bureau of
aeronautics, warns that the proposed cut would result in
the decommissioning of 32 warships and one dirigible, the j
closing of three important navy yards and one naval train
ing station and the release of 10,500 enlisted men.
That being the case, it would seem to be high time
for us to decide definitely just what our naval policy is
to be. Are we to keep a big. robust navy in spite of the
depression, or cut it down in spite of the troublous inter
International situation.

NEW YORK—One of the biggest
things that can happen in the life
of an orchestra leader is to be se- j
lected to play lor the Inaugural
Ball in Washington. Tin Pan Alley
rates this honor as the writing '
fraternity does the Nobel prize. The t
prestige, in other words, is worth <
many, many times more than the
immediate monetary reward. Even j
the most famous music maestros j 1
would be glad to render their ser- \
vices gratis.
So naturally there was a lot ol
scheming and wire-pulling on the 1
part of bandsmen when it was ]
learned there would be a ball this (
year. At least 37 press agents stat

would be among the lucky hall
dozen to help usher in the new ad
ministration. I
Silly charges wore hurled back

grams to James Farley and Admiral (

some charged untruthfully, was

young man who can play polities as j
well as music.
Specht .nvaded England early in 1
his career, and was doing very well
indeed until the Ministry of Labor ‘
put him on its unwelcome list to j *
prob'd its native jazz masters. This j
annoyed Specht. who knew there ’

American ones in England So he 1
revolted against the ruling, and in
the next 5 years sent 26 orchestras
to London. He dispatched them m- ' 1

mechanical smile that she an

Hamilton, sunk immediately In
the papers spread on his desk,
took no notice. Janet was glad
that he began the morning with a
rush of activity, dictating in a
lear, brisk voice, calling for let
ters from the tiles, asking her to
put through a long distance call,
to get Joe Carson on the wire, to
find Cunningham and ask him to

At 12 o'clock she went to lunch
but when she bad selected a

broke off a bit of the sandwich
and put it down again. Then she

rpHE call came at exactly 2:15.,
* There was no one else in the
office. Janet was so happy that;
for a moment she could scarcely
speak. A feeling of warmth
surged over her.
"Rolf?" (She knew of course
that it was Rolf but she wanted to
say his name.) "Yes, I’ve been
busy. Oh. all sorts of things. Yes.
I remembered you said you'd call.
Tonight? Well, but listen. Rolf. 1
want to see you. There's something

He wasn't sure he could make It.
The words didn t reach her very

The hours of the afternoon wore
away. They were slow hours that
dragged. At 10 minutes after five
Janet put away her work. She
hadn't finished. That did not mat
ter. If Mr. Hamilton said anything
she'd tell him she wasn't feeling
well. If would he true enough.
Mr. Hamilton bad nothing to say
on the subject Janet naid “good

paused before the dressing room
I ror to see that her hat was
straight and noticed how pale she
looked. That wouldn’t do.
Opening her vanity case she took
out the tiny rouge puff and rubbed
it against her cheeks. Bright color
flamed back at her. A little too
bright. Janet removed some of the
rouge, added powder and fastened
the collar of her coat. Then she
left the building.

she knew she was early. She

grinned. Nothing was changed
about him. Rolf looked exactly tbs
same. ••Well?” he asked. "'Where
do we go from here?”
"Let’s—just walk, Rolf.”
** ’Right.” They headed down
Franklin street. their steps
matched. Rolf swinging along
easily and Janet keeping the pace.
It was a little while before they
were out of the crowd. Then Rolf
said. "You told me you wanted to
taik about something. Well?”
It wasn’t easy for Janet to begin.
Rolf's presence, after that miser
able day. was so comforting she
wanted to forget everything else.
She wanted to but she couldn’t. A
moment of hesitation and then she
made a brave start. Her voice
didn’t sound just right. Muffled,
sort of. She noticed this and tried
to correct it.
"I—I guess it will sound silly.
Rolf, but—it’ s something—some
body said. I had to ask you about
it. Last night—you know you said
you were going to a wrestling
match Somebody told me they saw
you at the Liberty.”
"Who said that?’*
"It was—Mollie.’*
"Mollie? You mean that girl at
the house where you live?”
Janet nodded. She had never
been more miserable in her life.
Tremblingly she went on, "She
said you were with—a girl—“
“Oh! And because some dumb
bell wants to carry tales—!”
The girl interrupted. She had
stopped and was standing motion
less. "Then it’s true,” she said,
her lips scarcely moving. "You—
were there?"
Carlyle’s voice rose angrily.
"What if I was!” he demanded. "Is
that any crime? We might as well
settle this thing right now, Janet.
You know as well as 1 do our en
gagement doesn’t mean anything!”
