Tuesday, Dec 14. 1920. STANDARDIZED PATTERNS AND VAST OUTPUT DONT ALWAYS CONDITIONS in industries, rocl at - of material, uncertain markets, arrneart-es at rraaaern; are bringing about a still farther atadarursarJea of pat terns than tin the United State fcaa known heretefare. With this tendency towaso ataadnraSsatJaa of patters gaea the constant effort to increase output, ta strmuiate -quantity Drodurtion." as a means of reducinr. nnit osata of manu facture. Neceaaarilj the problem of marketing undergoes changes, for instead of trying to sell many different articles. the mannfaeturing world is trying ta sen larger uuaatmes of fewer pattern. The result of such changes may be favorable to money making, but the race loaea something aerertheteea. He inanity enjoy in proportion to the correctness, as well ae the diversity, ef its tastes, sad not merely m uroperrion to the quantity acquired or uiaauiaid. A "asaare aaaf fat an educated body is not a vast helping of two or three staples bat rather a strffidency in considerable variety. Similarly, in all the activities of rife, pleasure is nt in sured by surfeit in deadly darneas, bnt by the aUmeJw of seeking the unusual and the true, and choosing at win among many offerings. Of an the differences between American and European life and esthetic standards which strike the eeaaaarative student, there is none more netaMe than the fact that Europe has a much more varieat Hfe than America; that in Europe there is greater variety is things, and in ways at using things; nmrh greater variety ia tastes, and in ways of indulging tastes. Europe has not yet standardised her patterns or widely adopted quantity production. Tins is to be taken in a figurative aa weB as a Bteral sense. The suggestion stay apply equally ta objects, and to persona. In the average American community, there b a comparatively aasaH choice. One ia expected to $0 ST not do certain well defined things, one most aot depart from the accepted ways. Whether in conduct, ex in choice of fur nishings for a borne, or in selecting means of amusement, we Americana are largely standardised. For one thing, it costs abominably to depart from the standardised patterns. If we plan a house, every time we suggest the least thing out of the rut, the arcMteet smiles and warns, the contractor smiles and warns, the workman smiles and warns, and reluctantly, one after another, we must give up aB ef our lonr cherished little preferences and take what we can get within the standardised prise. But in so many coromrmities of the old world, there ia no pat tern. Everybody teems to have nut This is partly a result of our industrial system, onr great factories and our closely organised labor. If a man wants a wrought iron grill, in a Spanish town for example, ae walks a Maple of blocks sown the sketch for as artisan, and gets his grill tins country, it is a huge price for a design, or an elaborate catalog, and a pries from $500 to $50,000 for a window or a gate. If we want a bit of carved atone, or aa artistically bound book, or a special piece of fassftst, it is ta send 3000 miles for at or perhaps import werkaea ta da it, and pay half a year's income. But in any little town of the old world, one can hand these fhfags over ta a neighbor and watch him while he works joyously In creatiag: soraething wwen he pnses as part of liiasspn. We have movies, and some other thing, bnt after all there ia little vaiiaty to be had hi ajsasemeata except in the largest centers, and we do not know haw to make ear fun for ourselves aa more utiutaUve peoples do (primitive from our ataaaaarat of "etliue .). And is education, we certainly offer elect ives and "practical" courses, sat we aa net, perhaps, induce our young charges to take that joy in digging and delving far immortal truth, aa the more primitive eauee cational systems and educators do. We may teach our youths to make a living, but do we teach them how to lire? CathefieKy of taste, wide rntefleetael aad spirit aal eon tacts, liberty of choice, free trade ia ideas maybe we think these are characteristic Anaerfeaa traits, but seme times one is disposed ta doubt it. Canoed art, sensed music canned furaitare, canned history, canned amuse ments, canned flesrarure, oaaned morals we are either easily pleased, or else we are easily terrorised. And now the word goes out from the experts ia "effi ciency" that we must drop at least half of ear patterns, and double the output of those that are left, ia order te restore aa economic balance. We seem to be aa drternsiaed to standardise patters ia human minds aad spirits aa ia strfce fixtures, window sash, and paintings for hotel loobies.

The om enuren at meuiouard is of beautiful stone arch work of Roman esque architecture. Tradition has it that Jeanne d'Are visited this church, and thai her squire John of Mets was really John of Dieulooard. In the crypt of the church is Joanne's little chapel with nrkms very ancient images of Jeanne and her squire. On her banner is in scribed THeu le wart" which may be translated from old French dialect as either "God awaits thee" or "God watcheth thee." It is an old inscrip tion used in the coat of anna of an cient bishops of Lorraine, and it is safe to say tbe town gets its name from this phrase. The inscription on Jeanne's banner as generally given br historians and in pictures is "Dieu le Vent" or "God wilts it." but ome old prints have it "Dieu le wart " In any event it is easy to see how the motto might hsve been changed in the S'ee-h j of peasants.
