Looking at Life By ERICH BRANDEIS You'd h;ive a lol of fun joining our little gang al luncheon some time. We talk about everything under the sun, and when we leave the table we have solved the problems of the world. Maybe it would be a good idea if the men whose business it is lo run this world could get together this way and just talk tilings over a good meal and, maybe, a glass of wine. Let the weighty discussions bo interspersed with a few jokes and the ensuing laughter. Lot them open their lower vest buttons and loosen their collars if they become too fight, and soon their hearts will also open and their tight minds will loosen — lei them drop some of "their phoney dignify, forget some o r their hide-bound traditions and prejudices. Then, mayhap, problems that soem unsolvable in stiff-backed chairs and marble walls, may become easy to take care of over a good roast-beef hash or an oxtail-ragout with noodles and some fresh string beans. Yesterday, at luncheon, we found a cure for diabcles (which no doctor has yet been able to do); decided how we would have trfken Rome a long while ago and settled the Presidential election by simply changing the constitution so that there would be two Presi- dents—a Republican and a Democrat. We would also pass a la\v that no man could hold the office of President after he was 100 years old and that no more than three generations of the same family could be Presidents without giving somebody cl.se a chance in be- I tween. . . ' So you see how easy it is. A " you need is a sense of humor, a good restaurant and a healthy ap- polite. In order that the conversation might not become too heavy, we usually do limericks in between* Yesterday il was about Mrs. Harry Payne Whitney. Someone gives the first line li^ e: "A man said to Mrs. Harry Payne Whitney. . ." And then you and Ihe other fellows finish the limerick. Always use some name that is hard to rhymo, such as Frank McLearn or John Donald. Il's a lot of fun and it helps the digestion and the disposition "° end. 1 had to go to a civic meeting in my liltlc community last nigm- I was bored stiff. . But all the time, while the stufica shirts were .spewing the dictionary, I was doing limericks. An finally I fell asleep. (Copyright, 194•!, King Features Syndicate, Inc.)
