' History Is in. Attips
The pile of old papers ‘or letters

may be just the source material
needed. to produce better. more ac
curate history books. Historians of
the past have often failed to tell the
story of the life of the common man
not only because they were chiefly
interested in national politics and
economics. but also because they
could not find the materials "they
needed. so they could' write accu
rately about the people. Our-«gen

all the people, and the only source
of this‘material' is in the records of
the common people that are collect

Golf Good Exercise
Golf plays a dual role for those

friends, the association said, and
added that it would like to make it
very clear that it is our firm con
viction that golf is a patriotic and
proper form of exercise for the men
and the women of this country. and
that one‘should not have the feeling
that it is in poor taste to play a
game of golf in serious times like
these—provided, of course, that it
doesn’t‘intertere with the war effort.
