THE HAXDWR1T1XG ON THE WALL
When tho Hound Table, a local organization of
thinkers, philosophers and o'-sTvers, meets during
the present week, it will di-ieu?s the handwriting on
the wall of anciont Itahylon.
Most interesting is the announcement of its dls
cusoion which it pivos in this language:
"Itahylon fdouehol in lasciviousness and de
bauchery, the natural -equ nco of her ambitious con
quests of domain ami power, and her wealth of
pleasure and ease; Rom? in like manner rose and
fell; Spain i.s another example and now a.s civiliza
tion wends her way through time, what about Amer
ica? Wo aro more refined about It, that Is all. H
who wields a saw and shoves a jackplane as of yore,
is no lonrrer a 'carpenter' but nn 'architect and
builder;' the 'solicitor' who takes orders from retail
merchants i.s no longer a 'drummer but a 'com
mercial traveler;' the loquacious individual who
f.o rapes your chin is no longer a 'barber but a 'ton-j-rial
artist;' the rval estate men are 'realtors;' tho
money change;-;: r.f Umn have evolved into 'finan
ciers' what r.abylon called Iucuelean feasts aro our
modern cabaret's but this euphemistic style of
dressing thinpr-i in more hiqh sounding verbiage dooa
not alter their essential nature."
Tho epue.-t ion of w hether there is any cloe similar
ity between tho luxurious and wanton feasts of a
rabylonian king and the dancing entertainments
in a tnodf.ru cafe m'ght ho debita'oie but is not
the answer to any threat of a decadence of our
Ameriean civilization found in ttr? fact that
changing words for various occupations indicate a
lu'.ghth of achievement which none of these fallen
rations n ached .'
The carpenter with his saw has caught vision as
he works. Ho is no longer a slave to his tools. His
work has in it something of a dream and in his eye
ho seH not tho dreary toil but the American home,
the great sky scraper, the magnificent building of
which lie become, a part.
That a barber has becomo a tonsorial artist is
r.ot to be lamented. That indicates sorr.o pride In
his work and a distinction that has behind it a real
Tim financier of today boar the same relation to
the money changer of Koine that the o cart hears
to the luxurious la.Iwav trait sngagtd in a far
different business and with so much wider ;t range
of activities, aims and purposes that the resemblanco
Is no longer discernible.
Thosn who try to read into the handwriting which
warned a lascivious ruler of his end. any suggestion
that our own civilization is being threatened by too
prcat an indulgence in wanton entertainment over
look the Important facts.
Tho men of wealth in this land are not the wasters.
Thoso who conti ol power and wealth are not to bo
found at midnight feasts where wine and woni'-n
furnish the excision for song. They on-crvo their
ftrenuth and their brains for s"r.ous responsibilities.
Tho danger to Amerhun civilization comes from a
far different direction. There is no menace from
moral decay nt the. top.
It maybe of interest to add that the most recent
theory for the downf.i'l of Home was not its corrup
tion but the hr-- pofti,. prevalence of malaria. Th.at
disease, say modei r. s.-i:-nt!s!s who havo been digging
in th? ruins of Kerne and of Greeon, caused tho
decay of thco two e-ivilhtaMopj.
They diseve r that the.-v ration pro-por-,1 end

There's two great problems

Tli' former problem, o' course, kin

an' second, by placin' th the-aters

th' hod earner that's payin' ali

salary gitters. an' some salary sit

You people who have the time
and wherewith to think must real
ize New Year resolutions have been
wrong 10 21 years.
In the past we have solemnly
sworn tti stop certain things.
In the future wo should Solo
monly swear to start certain things.
It is simply a ca-c of the atmos
phere overcoming tho hemisj here ;
the positive taking the. place of the
negative, or a similar something.
During these past 1021 times the
ilitlieulty lias V. en in finding simple
things to swear to start doing. It
was easy to 'locate simple thing-) not
You could 5 wear not to make a
million and live up to it in spite of
ail inclinations to the contrary.
You could swear off shooting ele
phants and, without an uncommon
?tr-ak ef bad luck, you shot no ele
phants. Yu could swear off smoking,
which you had to do if you got any
cigars for Christmas.
You could s-.vrar off cus'-ing traf
fic cops and not break it more than
once, perhaps just half th.at often.
Finding simple thincrs to swear
r.ot to do his been as easy as con
vincing a girl she is the exact imag?
cf a movie ptar.
I'.ut finding simple things to
swe-ar ti de h is been as hard as
convincing a bow-legged girl she is
Keali.ng th terrild shortage of
simple thinrs to swear to lo wo are
giving away a li-t fr '".
Th- !.-t is so ci-y a college grad
uate can grasp it.
We ev 11 venture sei far as to say
your bo-s mil 1 understand several
of the minor suggestions.
It :s the only lisJ. ii-t of s-.vnrs
that will stay sworn, we trink.
Swear that yeui will go hungry if
yiiu have nothing to eat for a while.
That you will let it get dark every
night just after dusk.
That yau will pay the coal dealer
what he asks you to pay.
That you will get wet if you stand
in the rain long enough.
That you will let congress frrget
why it was elected.
That, no matter how mail, you
will refuse to whip Jack Dempsey.
That you will let the pun continue
to rise just about sunup.
That (unless you are too rich) you
will pay your taxos.
Th.at you will let perpetual motion
remain a secret.
That you will ht your colds get
well of their own accord.
That you will wear what the tyle
makers say wear.
Th.at you will let Wednesday coir?
between Tue.-dny and Thursday.
That you will kiss any girl w he
want you to kis? her.
That the missing link shall stay
ml-sing as far as you are concerned.
That you will jump when your
wife tells you to jump.
That you will let Amundsen visit
the north poD for you.
That you will r.ev r insi.-t there bo
two nights without a day between.
That you will bo behind with jour
That you will say this is the worst
blankety blank country in the uni-ve-rn
eve-n though you know it ;
nur r.inety-nine-year guarantee
that none ef these resrlutior.s will to

are made, goes to every reader.
