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.
CONSCIENCE MADE HIM FEAR
Capitalist Could See Only Disaster In
the Rather Sudden Departure of
the Priest.
Charles M. 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.

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.
