Safety in the Middle Way There are many proverbs in which the accumulated experience of mankind has been crystallized for the benefit of new generations, but of them all none seems to stand the test of time and experience better than the old Latin saying that in the middle way t-hall be found greatest safety. In all the story of human experiences arc al ways present two noisy minorities, the extreme radicals and the extreme conservatives and he who sees only the surface of human events is apt to reckon that history is made up of tho struggles and the alternate dominations of tbeae two minorities. Such an opinion is not based upon thoro knowledge. Between the two extremes there lies the great body of people who are both progressive and conservative, who arc generally well satisfied with things as they are, but believe that things can be made better, and who understand in a general way that change usually brings a corresponding loss with every gain. What has been true in every nation at every time is true in the United States today. Reactionaries nnd radicals do most of the talking and are most talked about, and the thonghtless readers of newspapers or magazines might easily form the opinion that tho na tion’s choice must necessarily be made between autoc racy and bolshevism. The truth is that the great majority of the Ameri can people are not reactionary and they are not radical; they are moderates. And because they are moderates they are not fast talkers, and they are not loud talkers, but they do their own thinking, and at the proper time, they act, by vote or otherwise, in the middle way that is the way of safety. To the same degree that the nation is intelligent aud free, the power of the moderates is greater than the preciation of these truths than the middle-class American people in self government, and the security of this re public and its institutions, are established in the self control and the common sense of what arc so rightfully called the middle-class Americans. No one in America today seems to have a better ap preciation of these truths than the middle-class American who is so soon to take upon himself the highest authority and the greatest responsibility of this nation. Tf we were to judge him according to much that is being said and written, he is struggling between the opposing forces of react Ton and radicalism, and to one or the other of them he must yield. Senator Harding, according to the estimates of those who value him most highly, is not that kind of a man. His choice will not be for either extreme, but for the middle way, and in that way he will lead tho notion thru peace and prosperity into safety. Outside approval for the great medical school in 1 Denver will depend a good deal upon the way. the project is handled by its promoters. Anything that looks like a big plum for Denver and nothing for the rest of the state will not arouse any great enthusiasm outside of Denver. That is not the idea of the medical school, but it may be easily made to appear that that is j the idea. A Club for Artists’ Models RY FREDERIC J. HASKLIN New York City. Dec. 31.—T0 have the artist's model taken seriously is tho purpose of an interesting cluti wnich has its headquarters In art old-fashion ed house on West Fifty-eighth .street here. rn*w this house at any hour duging the duy. and. if you are lucky, you are apt to sen its ancient door creak open nnd the ordinal of your favorite mngazine-rover-girl trip sed ately down the stnpp. For the house Is usually full of them. If has about 150 surli enchanting damsels on ita membership list. But they are to be taken seriously. Don’t forg t ti.at. Tho oth *r day. n Broadway Don Juan, bewitched at the sight of his favorite bathing girl picture actually walking down Seventh avenue—not In a bathing suit, you understand, hut recognizable nevertheless— proceeded to accompany her at » discreet dist ance ns she turned down Fifty-eighth street. Wien she loft the pa\emcnt and ran up a pair of steps, he stop ped in his tracks and stared in deep preoccupation at the door where she had vanished. Suddenly, th■» door opened a second time, and a grey-haired, sweet-faced matron came out. "Young man, what do you mean hy following one of our girls?" demand ed the indy quietly but firmly. "Now suppose you Just run along back to Broadway where you belong. Th* - girls in .this club are nlrr. quiet, re fined girls, and they don’t want to he annoyed, and. furthermore, we are not going to have a lot of idle, gaping men standing out hero in front of our house." Thus did the secretary of the club, ns sh«* later explained to the reporter, nip in the bud a movement on the part ••f the mile population of New York to give 'he Hub’its enthusiastic ett dc rsement "The attitude of the public, especi ally the masculine public, toward the at tint's model.” said the secretary sadly, "is much the same as it is to ward th chorus girl entirely frivo lous It Is also Incurably romantic. People seem to have an Idea that an artist's model is a gay young thing, who earns an easy. if not luxurious, living by posing for fascinating artists with long hair, or Oriental fezes, If they have bald heads. Now. as a mat ter of fact, poring Is hard work, and until recently the average artist's model has boon poorly paid and hao been given about an much considera tion an a table or chair." Getting .fobs For Models Here the tHophon • on the secre tary's desk burst noisily Into her con- THE PVEBLO CHIEFTAIN One of tho greatest follies of the Wilson adminis tration is Secretary Colby’s trip to South America. The Wilson administration has but two months more of existence. It has already been repudiated by the vote of an overwhelming majority of the American people. It will leave the executive departments thorolv discredited, as every foreign representative in Wash ington well knows, and its policies in many most impor tant details will be reversed by the incoming adminis tration. It is at such a time as this that the Seecretary of state, premier of the Wilson cabinet, chooses to under take a visit to South American republics, to receive from them tributes of respect, and friendhip for the United States, and to speak to them in the name of the American people. It is an insufferable manifestation of egotism and bad taste. One can easily imagine the undertone of comment among the shrewd diplomats of Latin America in the presence of this lured man who carries his dis charge paper* in his pocket, comment not unlike that which was heard in Paris on the latter days of Ppesi den Wilson’s self-constUnfed mission of world salvation. Secretary Colby evidently believes in going while the going is good. The peoplo of Pueblo owe a vote of thanks to those who brought The Mikado company here, last Friday night. This, and other musical and dramatic events at Mem orial Hall this winter, are much the best that Pueblo theater goers have had for many years. The best way of showing appreciation of sueh companies is te assure them a patronage that wrll make it worth while, as a business proposition, to continue this class of entertain ments in future years. A good rule ought to work both wavs. Republicans ought to return to power in the national government greatly benefited by their experience in the seats of the minority. Democrats ought to get hack into their normal place as the pariv of opposition with a better understanding of their proper functions due to their amazing experiences as the party in power. New York Evening Post Playgoers nightly turn to glance at each other. "There’s a good deal In it. you know." when Utterword declares to her fellow guests at Heartbreak House that what England needs Is "stables —tho old healthy vigor of the daybreak gallop. Nobody has told ufl so simply what the matter is with the United .states. Who knows hut that we need wood fires? They have always been the symbols of home and hospitality, of ancestry and estate, of comfort and sociability. People once were devoted to their own backlogs. It took a heitrthflro to make of a manor or a cot. .As short a space ago as Col. Carter's day coal was merely "one of the features of the place. •• uh," and an evening bofore n radiator would have been considered both dismal and barbarous Who can Imagine feeling tender towards a furnace? The emotions it rouses ire e-dtUous. nomadic, even pro fane. We cannot go down to our cellars on the first of the year and wreathe the furnnee nnd throw In with ceremony a new shovelful of coal. The hourgeoisc Latrobe heater had at least its splendid squares of isin glass. and you could contrive much affection for It. But furnaces and radiators that thump and snort may he undeeming-worship has changed to the Black Mass of the Hearth-worship hns changed to the Black Mass <>f the cellar. We have no reverence for our tires, nor for their grin* priest, the Janitor. There should be wood fires again; the poetry of heat. Every one knows that there is no substitute for tho mysterious cracklings, the babblings of prisoned sap. and the vague. astringent fragrances <-f the forest that they bring. "Wood smoke!"—the romance of age after age of campfires hangs about the name. What glamour enfolds the furnace? I fidences, and ehe grabbed a notebook i and pencil. "Excuse me Just a minute." she 'said, taking up the Instrument. "Yes. j I think we have the girl you need— i Miss B. You know her? Too thin** i I don’t believe we have anybody plumper. We consider her one of the plumpest girls we have. About 150 pounds. I should say. but tall and well-proportioned. Ten. I think you might be able to use her face. too. She’s a good Spanish type. Well, eh" lives right up in your neighborhood suppose 1 have her come in nnd sec ! you anyway. If ah© doesn’t suit, per haps wo can get you nom*- one else. Miss M., whom you had before, will bo back from Havana Friday." The secretary than explained that the club runs an employment bureau ter its members, who are an register ed and classified by types. Posing is somewhat like private nursing, a girl never knows how long her Job Is going to last or how much money it is going to pay her. Some artists take a long time to complete their work, and others work very fast. Some can af ford to pay a high rate for a model, and others can scarcely afford to em ploy one at aJI. But conditions In this respect are better for posers than they have ever been before. thanks to the persistent mercenary efforts of the Hub. A good model ran now demand and collect a dollar an hour for her work, at which rate some of them make h-s much as f ight dollars a day. Besides its employment bureau, the Art Workers’ Hull, as It is called, op erates a restaurant on the first floor of the house, which serves excellent meals at cost, while 6 o'clock tea. is served every afternoon absolutely free. To this artists as well as models are invited, since, as the secretary ex plained. "the chief object of the club is to bring th© two factions together for the promotion of a better undcr i .-.tajidlng " j Thus, on a rainy afternoon, the big clubroom Is filled with models draped about the furniture in graceful atti tudes. while they chat and drink tea , with sociably-inclined artists. The room, with Its artistic draperies and comfortable couches and easy chairs, looks more like a drawing-room than a clubroom. and the casual stranger would never guess from the frivolous repartee and engaging manner of its guests that serious business was being . transacted. Yet It is at these teas that many New York artists find their various types of models. The < mtvmn On the third floor of its large, old fashioned home, the club maintains a costume department, which contains costumes of every period and nation- Secretary Colby’s Joy Ride HEARTHS I nitty. These are often rented at a nominal fee with the model. For tn j stance, while the reporter was visit ing the club the other day. a wealthy i artist, who lives In a suburb of New i York, came in and told the secretary he was in search of a Dutch type ind a Dutch costume of the kind worn by a certain group of peasants living on an Island in the Zuyder Zee, The artist wan told to go up to the • clubroom and make himself at home j while the secretary found him a ( model. In a remarkably short time, a flaxen-haired girl, with broad cheek ■ bones and a robust figure mine In the f.’ont door In answer to tho secretary’s "teb phone summons, nnd was rushed up to the third floor to be fitted for the said peasant costume. The same i ftemoon she was out at th*' artist’s suburban studio, ready to take her pose. Once, every February, the club has . ;• Models’ Review, which Is considered one of the most important events in artistic circle**. To this review all of the known artists in the city are In vited. The clubroom Is turned into a small auditorium, with rows of chairs to accommodate a large-sized artist audience, while In the center of ihe room Is an elevated pdatform for the exhibition of the models. The girls appear in the most beautiful costumes that the costume department Is cap able of turning out—-costumes repres enting everything from the early Greek and the Italian Renaissance periods to the latest frock and chapeau coming from one of the Paris Mnisons. By reviewing throe models, the artist often gets tho in spiration of his life, so we are told, while the »r\odei gets a well-paid Job. Fashions In Models Not all of the’ models In greatest demand ar.? beautiful, but all of them are distinctive. Types arc what the , artist wants—not necessarily pretty faces. Thl.t year girls of the Spanish type are muHi in demand, while last year there seemed to be a. general pre ference for French girls. A few of the models, who are kept very busy posing for mural decorations and (character poses, are middle-aged and grey-haired, hut as a rule the life of the average model is only too short. Youth, with Its shimmering skin and firm, supple muscles Is the chief re quiremont in the posing profession, !so when n model enters her thirties she also begins to look for Brother kind of employment. Smetlmos sho herself trios poster or commercial art designing, and others return from | whence they came the theatrical profession or the business office. Knowing how tragically short is t!i« career of the poser, the Art Workers’ club endoavors to persuade its mem bers to study for another profession while doing their regular work Ac cording to the secretary, most of them tire now following ihis advice, which keeps them extremely busy and cer tainly unable to indulge In all the mad Horoscope “The (Harz laeMne, D«t Fl# Not font pel," (Copyright, 1921, by the McClure Newspaper Syndicate.)

Tnc. • During the latter part of the eleventh century there was founded in Asia a secret society known as the "Fedavis or "Devoted Onet," the members of the sect bring pledged to implicit and blind obedience to the orders of their superior**, no matter what th«»»r nrd ers might be. Hassen ben Sabbah, th* Persian who founded the dread order, waa extremely exploit in the rules which he laid down for the govern ment of the organization The mem bers of the lower ord*r were kept In ignorance of the teachings and nlm* jof the body to which they belonged, [and it was impressed upon them that [unfailing obedience was their only 'gateway to sucres* in this life and eternal ha princes in the next In order to give them a foretaste of the Joys in store for them provided they followed instructions to th** lat ter.

"so why did you start ih's club for her? She seems to be th® last kind of a female In need of charity." Then the secretary explained that art models have not always been so popular. There was a time years ago when no one paid much attention to . them. When Miss Helen Sargent, now Mrs. Ripley Hitchcock and , founder of th" club, was studying x' , the Art Students' League some years [ago. for example, such was the c.ie. i One afternoon a young girl posing for [her class fainted from fatigue, and according to Mrs. Hitchcock tt was | ten minutes before anybody went to her assistance. "Oh. It's only a model," they said indifferently. "They are always doing that." ! If was then that Mrs. Hitchcock dr termined that things should change, that an organized club should he j started for their benefit, and that tho time should come when artists' models would be looked upon as hu man beings and treated seriously.
