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

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
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.

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
