His mind simply shrivels. If it is ~ easy for a man to blow out his brains with a pistol, it is just as easy for him to do it with a lot of foolish ideas. The "seat of the scornful" is merely an asylum for the diseased mind. A man can learn nothing if he already thinks he knows it all. What good does the cynic do to those around him? He has no future; at least he won't look into it. And he scoffs at those about l~im who do. Humanism is platitudinous and a contradiction of terms. The Golden Bule is all right as far as it goes, but the human mind needs something more than that for a rule to conduct. The materialist assails the intangible feature of religion. It is admit- tedly hard to face the inexorability of nature. It is hard to face the decline of the human body by death. It is divinely hard. In this difficulty we are offered a challenge to our faith. But the idle, the flippant and the cynical have nothing to offer. In the development of cynicism today the youth of twenty-two has solved all his problems and has nothing to live for. At twelve the youth has found out all about his parents. At eighteen he has sol~ed the ques- tion of morality. At twenty he has found that the structure of govern- ment and society is all wrong. At twenty-one he has learned that mar- riage is a failure and at twenty-four he has nothing to look forward to. Those who sit in the seats of the scornful today do not really occupy seats, or even benches, but they fill whole stadiums, worshiping some- thing that can do them no good. The cynic cuts himself off from God. He divests himself of reverence and respect mentally in a way that would cause the police to arrest hi~n if he did it physically. Not only does he fail to profit from his thoug~hts himself, but he is harmful to those around him. NEED OF CULTURAL EDUCATION By REV. J. W. R. MAGUIRE, President St. Viator College.

The college of liberal arts~has not received such generous support as the nniversities where technical and professional knowledge is acquired, and I would make a plea for greater generosity oh the part of those interested in educatio,n toward the colleges of liberal arts. It is inequitable and unjust that institutions which seek to enlighten 875,000 of the 1,000,000 students enrolled in colleges and universities of the United States should be in possession of only one-half of the endow- ment funds in the country and the 125,000 should be the beneficiaries of the other half. The college of liberal arts must be released from the hampering bond- age of poverty so that, freed from mere material considerations, it may serve the cause of truth, of goodness, of beauty and of right human life. If the college of liberal arts is allowed to fail, culture and civilization will be imperiled. Its future, however, is assured, for its importance and its needs have only to be presented to the people of the United States to receive willing, spontaneous and generous support. ERA OF PROSPERITY LOOMING By LORD ROTHERMERE. English Newspaper Publisher. II The United States is due for another march along the road of sus- tained industrial development and progressive prosperity. It has tri- umphantly survived last fall's stock market crash. The nation as a whole has, and is entitled to have, anshakablc con- fidence in its enduring prosperity, That prosperity is based upon an abundant supply of the principal raw materials within America's own borders. The :development of these is carried on by a fortunate alliance of extremely high executive capacity with the most intelligent, hard working, and ambitious lfibor in the world. The United States possesses every asset that makes a nation rich. In equally abundant measure, she has the men, the money, the materials, and the markets. During my recent stay in New York I heard the personal views of a half dozen great i~.~dustrial leaders of the United States, and found each of those men completely confident that the next two years will see the United States once more establishing new peaks in every branch of national activity. CHANGE IN GRADUATION METHOD By ROBERT MAYNARD HUTCHINS, President Chicago University. I would base college graduation on proved mental capacity rather than on grade points. The experiments of the collegiate division should center on the business of getting the student started on his education. Normally an individual might stay there two years. On the other hand, "he might spend one or three years in the collegiate section. At the con- clusion of this period he should enter the university as distinguished from the collegiate program. In the university his object should be to begin the study of some division of knowledge that is of particular interest to him, and whi~h he is qualified to deal with. This program also should be flexible; he should go as fast as his abilities permit. In those studies in which he chooses to specialize he should have a minimum of instruction, and should l~ut forth a maximum of independent effort. In those which he merely wants to know about he should be lectured en masse by the best lecturers to be obtained. 1l SEX ,EDUCATION NEED FOR By RABBI ABRAHAM NOWAK, Cleveland. Failing to recognize marriage .as a task is one of the fundamental failings of marriage today. Marriage is not an end; it is only the begin- ning. Marriage is the forging together of two souls, the linking one to another of two hearts and the blending into harmony of two minds. Nothing is more destructive to the ship of matrimonT than the winds of competition in the home, resulting in storms for mastery, superiority and domination. It is undoubtedly the product of the age we are living in. We are all being trained for personal competition and we forget that there is no place for competition in love and marriage. Man and wife must give, and in giving they must realize that they do not lose anything. Faultfinding strains friendship.

Old and young can take th s family laxative; tee trial bottle*. The next time you or the children need a laxative, try this famous doctor's prescription which aids the bowels without doing any harm. Dr. Caldwell's ~yrup Pepsin, containing pure senna and laxative herbs, is effective in a gentle and helpful way. Its action is thorough, but it never weakens the bowels. It stimulates muscular action and is thus actually good for the system. So remember Dr. Caldwell's Syrup Pepsin when coated tongue, fetid breath, headaches, nausea, ~aded appetite or biliousness tells the need of a thorough cleansing. Druggists keep it in big bottles, or write Dr. Caldwcll's Syrup Pepsin, Monticello, Ill., for a free trial bottle. l The Descendant A man who used to rein in his horse so suddenly that it reared on Its haunches now has a son who dashes up a street intersection at thirty-five miles an hour, depending (,n four-wheel brakes and the kindly l'rovidence that protects idiots to stop hint in six feet.---Ohio State Journal.
