C An Englishman who recently i foiled the Uuittd States wrote his Impressions of the country upon bis ! return to his native land. Here la his article: Of course America is the land of extremes. The people are either de manding that all countries pn earth Join In a, League of Nations so that universal brotherhood shall be main tained, or they want to shoot, at siKht. the mug-wuang patriot who would tarnish the glory of America by having obligations with decayed and played-out European lands. In winter the thermometer signs away below xero; and in summer it bubbles up beyond the century. Just now i something like a hundred million Americana are gasping with heat. New York is empty except for some five million people who are ob- i lifted to remain in "the poor little old town." The wealthy have gone to Newport, or Southampton or Long Island, or to the Berkshire Hills, or to charming Tiixedo. and there they live the simple life as only American millionaires can. Half the people one meets are mil lionaires. The war made eighteen thousand new millionaires in dol lars, not pounds. They are very hospitable. The current thing, how ever has been to visit Europe. Per haps you have met them. As the temperature is torrid Amer ica is adaptive. Many country houses have their sleeping porches, and there, in the open, slumber is sought In the hot, breathless nights. Elec tric fans are everywhere buzzing overhead In the shops and restau rants, and twirling with 'mechanical sidewings so that the breeze be spread. A little electric fan is hum ming on the table as I write to re lieve the 102 in the shade limpness. Elder and even youthful British golf ers would think It bad form to ap pear on the links in anything but a Jacket. The American, a stickler for convention in most things appertain ing to garb, leaves his coat in the rlub houses and snore likely than not has his shirt sleeves rolled up above the elbows. . i Every body wears a slraw hat. The Panama of Hamburg is not very pop ular. Mostly the round straw hat is worn, and In the morning when the great railway stations disgorge thou sands of workers coming in from the suburbs, you cannot looking from your hotel window see people for straw. j Men's costumes are flimsy. The : waistcoat is unknown. To wear braces or suspenders Is to proclaim j yourself an old-timer or an English I man. Cool mohair suits are the ! thing, though If you want to admit I It Is real summer, you wear a Palm I Beach suit, canary colored coat and pants, such as oil kings or steel mag i nates are supposed to don in the gen jernl winter sunshine of Florida. What the Englishman would call a nut though the word has not the same meaning In America Is not content unless he is wearing a silk shirt. A silk shirt costs anything , from twelve to twenty dollars. City 'clerks spent halt a week's wages to buy a ailk shirt. The most gorgeous silk shlrta are not worn In New York. The most wonderful silk shirts I have seen! have seen have been In the smaller! towns of the Middle West, In Illinois,! Michigan, Wlecoiihln and Iowa, flam- ing stripes of chocolate and green; and puce, and collars of orange and. magenta. At the risk of making myself un-, pnular at home, I must say that I think the young American girl is the greatest creature on earth. And she has taste. And, further, when it j come to scantiness of attire In the warn months she "goes some." La, la! the costumes of the girls I saw in France last year were demueness Itself compared with the fli main ess of the dress worn by the average Amer ican girl this year. iDelng a mere man, I dare not at tempt to describe. The dresses, how ever, begin low down and end high up, and lace and silken ribbons, shown through the gauze,, leave a lit tle, but not much, to the Imagination. The other day down at New Orleans a clergyman was so shocked when a bride walked up the aisle that he ordered the church lights to be ex tinguished and the girl to go and find more clothing before he would offici ate at the marriage ceremony. Llfo Is made possible with ice. The first thing that probably makes an American mad in English is the ab sence of Ice. Our tepid drinking wa ter nauseates htm. Everything is Iced in America. The flint thing you do In the morn ing Is to drink Iced water. At all meals, whether at a quick lunch coun ter or at the Rita, you are supplied with a glass of water with pieces of Ice In It. The last thing you do at night Is to have the servant bring you a pitcher Jangling with lumps of Ice. The Ice chest is an Institution In every household. Ice Is delivered each day the same as milk. No doubt the Ice habit Is a bad one. But like most bad habits It is very pleasant. Americans have many pastimes, but the chief one seems to be eating Ice cream. Talk about the roast beef of old England! What Is It compared with the Ice cream of young America. The American has the sweetest tooth, and when he, and particularly she. Is, not munching andy or chewing gum. the local drug "tore Is being patronized. Incomes tre made from selling patent medi cine, but fmtunaes are accumulate by tho sale of Ice cream and toft drinks. Thee parlors I leave the "u" out of tho word In deference to m American friends are really rorre- ou eetabllshnenla. They are partoaa. araaalously clean and decorative. On one aide Is a long white marble counter and you ait on a high stool while white clad young pien spryly . anpply the thirsty uiob. Everything ia neat, dishes clean, glass polished with medicated paper cups, so your lips run no risk of contamination. and with pkntitude of straws through which to sup the cooling beverages. There is grape Juice and logan berry Juice, root beer, orangeade, cola, cherry Phosphate, limeade, mix tures of aeraed water. Ice cream. crushed strawberries, chocolate sun daes and ire cream of many colors and many flavors. There are thou sands of these places. They are al ways lull fat men as well as slim women. I felt quite a shock one day when I waa introduced to the governor of a State while he was sitting at a drug store table eating vanilla loo, cream. It had never entered my mind that governors could eat vanilla flav ored ice cream. At the roar part of the establish ment are nice glass covered tables where you sit and while the hours away consuming inordinate quantities of ice soft drinks and listening to a band, or a nickel in tho slot machine, not infrequently a horrible but in genious Gerihp.i contrivance of a fid dle played by electricity. Last Sunday I went for a solitary five-hour walk among the beautiful hills of Western Pennsylvania. Not once did I meet a pedestrian out for a stroll. Not once In the woods near the town where I was staying and overlooking the Ohio river, did I come across any couples. How different from England! Young coi:ples do not go country walks in America. They chiefly con sort In the ice cream parlors. And when, h()i and dusty, I got back to Ice root beer, thero was a throng of young people. In the drug store con suming ire cream plain, ice cream with walnuts. Ice cream with syrups. Of course, everybody In America has a motorcar called automobile "for short." A man may have a heavy mortgage on hi3 house, but he must have a motorcar. Nobody is anybody in America unless he has a car. And women and young girls drive as often as men. While there are social dlst tactions in the Eastern states, Just as much as In England, they are practically non-existent In the Middle West. The atmosphere Is that of a big, good natured fa inly. Everybody la "BUI" or "Euphella" to everybody else. There is bathing and eating ice cream picnicing with plenty of Ice cream, fighting the mosquitoes and consum ing more ice cream. Why bother about the League of Nations when the evening s warm and a bucket of cream is on the table? Somebody ought really to write a book on the Land of Ice Creajn. E JOURNAL WANT ADS.
