with leisure time on their hands are likely to get into trouble.
There are likewise fewer street accidents during the season when the
playgrounds are used. The playground directors have discovered that
summer activities on the playgrounds have practically eliminated all
swearing, cheating and stealing among the children. They note with sat
isfaction that the spirit of fair play has put the playground bully where
he belongs and teach the more timid self-reliance. It is invariably the
case with children who use the playgrounds that they gain in weight and
in appetite.
An Aroused Public
Preventive of
The campaign against forest fires is essentially one of publicity and
education. When all of the people recognize the needless destruction of
our natural resources by preventable forest fires, every individual will ex
ercise the care necessary to prevent such fires.
To check and extinguish a forest fire, once it has a head start, is a
difficult matter, but to prevent the start of such a fire is extremely simple.
During the past five years, the campers in the United States have been
responsible for more than 20,000 forest fires. Greater care in completely
extinguishing camp fires and less carelessness with cigars, cigarettes and
matches, will prevent the tremendous loss due to these causes.
An aroused public opinion is a most efficient remedy and will greatly
decrease the necessity for the detection and punishment of the individuals
who may continue to endanger the safety of our public" welfare and our
valuable heritage of timber resources.
A Question That's Intrigued Savants
of All Times and All Places
By MRS. F. X. PHLNNELL, Cambridge, Mass.
A question that has intrigued savants of all times and places is "Do
fat women make the best wives, and if so, why ?"
A true answer to that would be of inestimable importance. It would
rob matrimony of its gamble, guarantee happiness to prospective benedicts,
and shatter the silly modern prejudice against obesity. Undoubtedly the
answer is affirmative.
Since the dawn of history, as shown by the clay tablets lately ex
cavated at Nippur, the well rounded woman has been noteworthy for affec
tion, good nature, disinclination to worry, and taste and ability in prepar
ing food. She is easy-going, restful.
thin sisters. In a word, she is comfortable. ,
Therefore my advice to young men is: Fall in love with a stout
woman. The false vivacity, the hectic excitement of the slim girl won't
last. Fat and good cooking will. The fleshy girl will cheer your home,
smooth your path, and lengthen your life.
H. G. Wells, in "The Outline of History" Some writers, even
American writers, display a snobbish shame of something homespun
about these makers of America. m They feel that Benjamin Franklin,
at the court of Louis XVI, with his long hair, his plain clothes and his
gawky manner, was sadly lacking in aristocratic distinction. But stripped
