"Information, y> that mysterious spirit to which one turns as to an oracle, has been devoting 800 hours a day in this city to answering ques tions that the questioner could have answered for himself by looking in the telephone book, observes New York Evening Post. The company respectfully suggests that "informa tion" be employed as a court of last rather than of first resort. As things are in this world, this must be al lowed to be reasonable. But both it and the discontinuance.of "central's" passing the dime of day with you are concessions to the merely practical. In an ideal world one would merely lift the receiver off the hook, not only to ask whether he had time to catch 8:18, but also to inquire what the headlines of the latest editions of the newspapers said. In such a world there would be no bulky telephone book that would fall off the table just as you reached the page where the number was. You would say, "Hello, central, give me X. Y. Jones, I just off "Columbus circle." In small towns one may actually do these in credible things. But an attempt to| duplicate them in a city was doomed to failure.

Schwab, the demo cratic—and entirely frank—boss of our shipbuilding, told this story at a luncheon during his recent visit to San Francisco: "I was interested in a big corpora- I tion with a famous capitalist. Wo had been 'navalizing' the enterprise | with water.. (And it was not all salt water.) We were both Catholics. The 'na valizing' got on our consciences. It so happened that we each went to i confession to the same priest at the same time, without the other know-1 ing. I was on one side of the con fessional, my friend on the other, | with the priest in between. The priest was unexpectedly called into the church. Then my £( friend and I could see each other across the space vacated by the fa ther. .< i Where has his reverence gone?' my brother financier asked me. " 'He went out into the church/ I said. You're a liar/ whispered my friend. 'He's gone to call a cop. U £ 9 99 CAN'T CHEW TOBACCO. Among the American soldiers who have gone to France there has been a decline in the American habit of chewing tobacco, according to re ports, and Y. M. C. A. secretaries who sell tobacco in canteens in France say that modern warfare rather than prejudice is responsible for it. It's the gas mask that's done the trick, they say. A devotee of the plug is seriously embarrassed when called upon to don the gas mask. One southern soldier is said to have put it like this : "With terbacca bitin' inside yer cheeks, the ol' gas mask anchored 'tween yer teeth, mustard gas all about ye an' no chanct ter open yer mouth—war sure is hell!"—Charlotte Observer. GOT HIM BLUFFED. "Does your husband growl about his meals as much as ever ?" "Hot now." "How's that ?" I've threatened him with the food administrator,"—Louisville Courier Journal. .1 4 FLIERS.
