THE UE OF PL A Y
By Dr. Samuel G. Dixon, Commissioner of Health of
Pennsylvania.
Most people would say that play’s first
requisite was that it should feonsist of
something oen doesn’t have to do. Play
is in reality .however, of all sorts and
descriptions. Those that produce some
thing useful besides giving rest are great
ly to be preferred. There are many sorts
equally stimulating to the mind and to
the body and productive of valuable re
sults.
Ono essential to beneficial play is that
it be wholesome and be performed in a
healthful environment, that js, where we
have pure moving air of the right tem
perature and preferably sunlight.
The body should be maintained in such
position as to permit an even circulation
of the blood and normal respiration. The
object of the exercise would otherwise be
very much discounted. The air carries
food to the blood which it furnishes to
the tissues, and the blood in turn takes
away the debris and returns it to the
outside atmosphere. This will make plain
to anv reader the necessity of what has
been said about the proper environment
jn which to exercise.
Variation of types of work properly ad
justed will obtain substitute for what is
generally known as play. For instance,
one's brain center may become weary at
Theo, N, Vail Contrasts Present With Past
BY THEODORE N. VAIL,
(Pres. Bell Telephone Co., in The Forum.)
Contrast the conditions which I saw
as boy and the conditions of today. When
I first entered business, man was self-de
nendent; with the exception of the lux
uries —and there were few enough of
them—the individual and his family pro
duced every necessity of life. Most pro
duction and manufacture was by indi
vidual, manual labor; there was some
little centralization but it was very slight
and the groups were small. The indi
vidual seldom left his own neighborhood
and he almost as seldom communicated
with the outside world through the only
medium of communication —letters. In
tercommunication, intercourse or inter
change between separate sections or
states was uncommon and. there were
few centers of trade or commerce. The
world was individual and self-contained.
Now none of us is self-contained; we
depend upon others for not only the lux
uries but also for the comforts and the
very necessities of life. Labor is no
longer individual; it is organized into vast
establishments where machinery has
largely teplabed human labor. And that
which as most largely contributed to this
marvelous change has been the growth
in "intercommunication” and "ti;anspor

THE BIG STORE—OPPOSITE MONUMENT.
a monotonous occupation, and a decided
change of# occupation, notwithstanding it
be what we usually eatl work, will permit
the first brain center involved to rest
while another works.
But we come back to the fact that what
most people regard as play is occupation
that they are not required to perform,
and. it would seem from a psychological
standpoint to give greater rest if it be an
occupation that is particularly useless
from the standpoint of producing econo
mic results.
Therefore there should be time set
aside in the work of the ady, no matter
whether it be varied or not, when the en
vironment may be changed and play
should be taken up.
1 speak of games in a broad sense.
For instance, after sitting at a task for a
given number of hours, a walk in the
open air, the body held erect and the
limbs swinging so as to produce circula
tion, and attention given to surroundings
so that the mind may be occupied and
contented, constitutes one of the best
kinds of play, preferably performed in
company. .
In tlii-.se times it is well to remember
the simple saying of the old days that
all work and no play makes Jack a dull
boy.
From simple life to complex life.
From dissociated individual effort and
small enterprises to centralized co-opera
tive taterprises and aggregated labor.
From highly skilled manual labor to
automatic machinery.
Disturbance of relative standards of
value of long standing, caused by great
discoveries of precious minerals.
The great increase in nominal but not
relative wealth of the individual, and a
greater distribution of property to the
whole public through the changing of the
great potential resources of the country
into tangible and realizable assets by the
restless and resistless energy of the in
ventor, the dreamer and the optimist,
backed by energy, initiative and persist
ency.

This reminds me of conversation I had
last night with a humorous Scotchman.
“You have three chances out here in
Palestine when you once come out,” ac

and get to Cairo, the second is to be
wounded and get to ‘Blighty’ (that is
some foreign land, preferably Scotland),
and the third is to be buried in the Holy
Land.”
