All he wanted to know was how Pat stood on the prohibition question. It was an awkward moment. But not for Pat. Smiling he turned to the audience and remarked: "I'm just wondering if your distinguished officer Was making an inquiry, or extending an invitation." I have just finished reading & book Harry Lemley loaned me when I was recovering from a tonsil operation. It is "Genghis Khan," the biography of a Mongol emperor. Hundreds of years ago the world thought it was quite educated when it learned about Kubllai Khan, the golden emperor who ruled 1 Asia in the 13th century. Marco Polo visited in his illustrious court, and brought back to Itnly one thrilling story from the Far East. • •>,.'. Genghis Khan was Kubilai Khan's grandfather. A hundred years earlier, Ghcngis conquered the world and handed it down to his son and grandson. When Marco Polo visited it, the Mongol empire was in its golden day; but when Genghis Kahn lived it was a thing of blood and steel. Kubilai Marco Polo was a good press agent. The story of Genghis Khan's cavalry marches establishes him as superior to the Greek Alexander, the Ro man Caesar, or the French Napoleon. He made a few men mightier than many, because he got them over the ground With the speed of fast horses racing through the night. The discovery of Genghis Kahn by modern historians reminds me of another case in which early history gave the grandson more credit than' the grandfather. In medieval Europe the emperor Charlemagne (Charles the Great) was widely known as rulei 1 of all the Franks. But It really was his grandfather, Charles Martel, who set up the Frank empire a hundred years before by whipping the Arabs at the battle of Tours. Charles Martel saved Europe for Christianity. Charlemagne, his grandson, like Kubtlai Kahn, came along at a later, more splendid day. All of whith reminds us how very little we really know about history. The story doesn't always begin at-the beginning. It Is just as if some foreign hlstprian a thousand years hence should write the story of the United States beginning with Abraham Lincoln, and then, when he was all through, happened to discover George Washington.

YOUR Oi_ J J T I • •'•"•-• btandard of Livmq «i7 • For all we know, some Mongolian landowenr, living miserably in a smoke felt tent, may be the richest man in the world ... For standards of living are not based merely on wealth. They are based rather on the way people use wealth. The reason why American standards are considered highest in the wolrd is because the great majority of Americans have at their command all the things necessary to a civilized and cultured mode of living. Any housewife in America, even of most moderate means, can * draw upon the resources of all the world for her own private use! You may study and enjoy outright at very small expense, music- drama—art in all its froms. You may review the smartest styles each day as they appear in the pages of newspapers. You may select household furnishings, modern conveniences, heat-units, refrigeration, food in luxurious anc} endless variety, cosmetics, dress-goods, automobilies, anything in fact that is commonly looked upon as part of the American scene—you may select these things leisurely and conveniently by merely studying the adver- tisement as they appear each day!
