" Til NEW
• -a new leaf today. A new
year to begun.
Welcome to 1932, and may K bring
peace, happiness and prosperity.
Let us face the future with confi
dence and hope, and with a stalwart
faith that brooks no defeat We may
be down, but America is never out
The year will bring many repeti
tions of ok! experiences, a reenforce
ment of okl laws, a reaffirmation of
another common saying. which is
that human nature changes tittle, and
human relationships are much the
same today as they have always been.
We enter upon the new year, but In
It we shall be responsive to the same
forces as heretofore. W« shall find
] our reward as we put ourselves into
harmony with divine statutes, and
punished as we disregard them.
There are but two Lamps by which
our feet may be guided—those of ex
perience and conscience. If we profit
by one and hearxi-n to the other, we
shall avoid many of the pitfalls that
lie ahead; the tame old pitfalls, in
the same old places, and hidden in
the saraa old manner. If we play ihc
game In accord with the rules laid
down by that "still small warning
voice within." we shall < scape many
of the old retributions for the same
old errors that men and women have
been making all the years.
The new year Is a time when men
men make resolutions though there |
Is no good reason why the arrival of
another year should have to be await
ed to break a bad habit or fall into a
new one. But the slate is wiped
clean, a new leaf is turned avid a new
account is opened. And It is always
true that it is easier to make a new
resolution than to keep it.. To do
better or h< better, requires forti
tude and persistence.
But most of us do not change much
from year to year It Is the trend in
our lives that makes the difference.
For some the direction is upward, for
others It is downward We would
not have any one desist from making
New Tear resolution*. Good ones <
made and broken may be better than
none made at all. Yet. one who thinks
of a change of habits only at the
start of a year does not get so very
far in personal uplift. New Year's
day is 100 infrequent, and there an
not enough of them In a lifetime. !
JUST STALE SMOKE
- With the coming ot tnls
Year, let's turn our backs upon 1981,
except In so far as we may prof.t In
1952 by the mistakes we have made.
It to too late now to regret our short
comings of last year. The best thing
to do is to wipe the slate clean, turn
over a new leaf and begin again t<
build from the ground up.
On this first day of the new twelve
month, let us turn our eyes and our
hearts and mind to the days that are
ahead. Never mind the spilt milk of
yesterdayy. Never mind the stale
smoke of last night’s cigar or clga
lette. That is just stale smoke; it
has evaporated; it Is gone; it cannot
do smoked again. Forget It.
But In looking ahead, bear this in
mind. The "happy and prosperou !
New Year” wish on your Christmas
card is no guarantee that luxury
awaits you around the corner. You've
, got to get out and bustle In this 1932
To those for whom the coming year
means just so much time and not
hard work, the year will bear only
tragedy and disappointment again,
just as 1931 has. Sales and mor<
sales must be the business man’s mot
to, but these things require more and
more effort. And the chances ere a|*
In favor of the fellow who works the
hardest. He will bis part of th
business that tr floating around.
Some one has said that "unless w
can get the business, we will get
nothing but a Christmas card next
Christmas.”
The whole year now lies ahead. It
to given us to do with as we please.
In large measure it will be for eacl
of us just about what we make It. A'
any rate, the old year, with all o
Its regrets, to gone. It is just stale
smoke now.
One big utility president says
things won’t be any worse this year
than in 19S1. but some of us are won
dering how we can pull through if
they are even that bad.
The automobile license department
is out with its annual announcement
that there won’t be any extension of
time to buy the new tags, and with
about the same results as before.
Better times are ahead, says a head
line over a summary of forecasts on
> conditions In 1932. Well, the man
with any other sort of statement would
be a dumbbell indeed.
Daugherty says his book will be
deleave of tihe good name of Presi
i dent Harding, but, had it not been

JAMES ASWEIt
B.v Central Press
New York, Jan I—A novel idea wits
voiced by George Martin, crack
speechmaker for the N. B. C. network,
the other evening between broad
casts He is a connoisseur of beards,
■—jr - believing that
chin foliage has
history,
sainted sinners
and impressed
jji posterity with the
jjPfgfpMl dignity and wis
clowns.
■MHBfla Coo! icige had
worn whiskers he’d have gone down
the ages as one of the world's grcal
est sages,” George contended. "A man
who can keep his mouth shut and his
cktn embellished with a handsome
growth of shrubbery is the irresistible
combination for the big-shot complex
among the populace.
"And what would George Bernard
Shaw be like without his lovely white
chin drapes? Very likely he wouldn't
have been G. B S. at all. i>ut some
other buy with the same name. When
I think of him I sc 2 his whiskers
first and then connect up with his
works. With a nude jaw he might
very well have been an ardent capi
talist .
“The longer Joseph Conrad’s black
beard grew, the greater was his ac
claim. And Chailes Evans Hughes
unquestionably polled many a voto
and rated many a post of dignity on
the strength of his magnificent set of
soup hazzards -leaving his very' great
ability out of the picture entirolyy."

With Christmas over, the toy season
is beginning to get under way in ear
nest. . .November and December and
slack times in the plaything indus
try. with February the peak month;
then next Yule's toys are ordered, de
signed planned in quantity and qual
ity... One of the big toy makers told
me the other day that his firm was/
getting out a picture book on locomo-l
tives and that he had written to the '
New York Central Railroad, asking j
the big engines.. .They replied with I
severs’ questions about the design of ■
a complete set of blue prints detail- I
!ng the construction of one of tbe J
steel giants down to the last i>olt ..
So compltcatcdly technical that nobody
in the toy firm could make head or
tail of it!
1 sun told Corinne Griffith lias been
approached several times to make a
talkie, but no will do because she is
happily married and living quietly in
New Orleans... Peggy Hopkins Joyce
is startling the slecpy-time places by
appearing without a trace of make
up; you wouldn't think so. but the
lack becomes her... Cute Bobbie Arnst
was the first girl I saw- try it on
BBroadway—three years ago. . .
There is a new tendency in radio
to sign only those performers who
have possibilities as stage and vaude
ville performers a-’d then build them
up into big namea...And the day of
the crooner appears slated soon for 1
its inevitable twilight. If the omens I
kidding the sweet-and-dreamy boys’
mean anything... Broadcasts of songs
may have helped. .. Watch the rise of
Peggy Keenan (whose husband was
the famous Frank of stage fame) and
her partner, lovely little Sondra Phil
lips, both just signed to a fat N. B. C.
contract.. .Their piano playing has a
quality of sex appeal, on a high plane,
that crooners' voices may not attain.

The largest month besides Decem
ber was February, with a loss of $25.-

ing for most of the fire loss for the
entire year. The fire loss for 1931 was
nearly double the volume of new
building carried on in the same
period.
