Enjoying Travel hapless American male who is dragged, protesting, ,1 through the art museums and cathedrals of Europe by a high-minded and culture-hungry better half has been one of 'the comic figures of literature for a good many years. Mark Twain struck a blow in his favor in "Innocents Abriad"; for p the most part, however, the poor man has been left to the Jt superior derision of the intelligentsia, unhonored and un- mj T w .' most re:fresn i n g. Francis Hackett arises in the |jr January issue of Harpers Mogazine to assert that this luck- 850 '"is figure of tradition has pretty much the right idea. When you travel, says Mr. Hackett, travel for fun. Don't 0 it to improve your mind. Have a good time; and if having good time doesn't lead you to art museums and such-like, ""'t worry about it. "The most dangerous thing for a conscientious man," ays Mr. Hackett, "is to detect his moral vacuity and begin pilling it up with" cathedrals and museums. Especially should *e control the weakness he may have for art galleries. 'One lldur in the gardens,' he should say, 'where the mind is refreshed by the living picture, is worth 2000 acres of dried- oil painting'." _„ Now there is a lot of sense in that; and it points to the Jtrather surprising?act v that the most memorable 1 moments ^usually come to a traveler when he is least expecting them. jr^ ' Yo ucan gape at the glories of Versailles, trudge through j^the Louvre open-mouthed, follow an inquisitive nose throuph " Westminster Abby and view the Acropolis by moonlight; but Oh, Yeah? Do You you get back home you are apt to find that your bright. most valuable memories are of insignificant things you *,,, hardly noticed at the time—lengthening shadows across a l^gniEnglish meadow, sunlight on the waves in mid-oceon, m empty stretch of poplar-bordered French road, a hastily- •4a glimpsed cottage by an English river. Such things aren't in guide books, nor are they mention^ ert in travelers' diaries. But they are of the real essence of !T/'the joys of travel. You can go to Europe to find them, or you i^'can find them on an afternoon's motor trip in your own state. )u need only open eyes and a receptive mind. The Graf's Record T HE reliability of lighter-than-air craft when they are built and handled by experts was never better exemplified than by th erecord of the Graf Zeppelin, which was made public a few days ago when the big German airship went into winter quarters. To date the Graf Zeppelin has passed 3588 hours in the air, and has traveled nearly 350,000 kilometers. She has made 232 trips since she first took to the air, and during 1931 irwle three flights to South America and one to the Arctic. All of this almost sounds more like the record of a steamship than of a dirigible. It is fairly conclusive proof that the dirigible is ready to take a place in the world's transportation system. TWENTY-FIVE YEARS AGO At the residence of Mrs. T. R. Billingsley, in the Frisco Addition, on Wednesday afternoon at 2:30 the "S. Y. T." Club were at home to the "Sterling Girls" and the "F. B. S."

In order to sell their stuff they'd probably agree to take their customers for a ride. India is going on with its civil disobedience campaign just where Gandhi left off. Just where, and what, did' Gandhi leave off? Twenty-three tons of fresh' air, can be forced into Chicago stadium, scene of the 1932 Republican National convention, every minute. How many tons of hot air can be forced out? An electric device has been invented to open locks. Now if someone will only invent something to open Scotch purses. Love laughs at locksmiths. But you don't need this device to pick golden- locks. A New York .university professor says bridge weakens reality. Seems to adulter-ate life. • Evelyn, Mrs. E. S.

But what, do you suppose, will happen if it develops next spring that the debts are simply not going to be collectible? The Financial Times, of London, said the other day: "The honest thing is to face the fact at once, and for European debtors to say with one voice to America that they Cannot and do not intend to resume payment July 1, 1932." Whether that is what will be done is something no man can say. But it is high time we started figuring out what reply we shall make if that does happen. We are opposed to reduction and cancellation; but suppose the debtor nations simply announce they cannot pay? What do we do then? Inside Looking Out "A bachelor has nobody to share his troubles."

Mr. and Mrs. Jack Thompson, Mr. and Mrs. Milton Simmons and daughter THIS CURIOUS WORLD Death of "Legs" Diamond I N the murder of "Legs" Diamond, society has not lost anything that it cannot very well do without. Of all the racketeers whom postwar turbulence has thrown to the surface of society, he seems to have been one of the most despicable. Personal cowardice, colossal conceit and mean cruelty —these seem to have been the chief elements in his character, as far as he showed it to the public. That his underworld enemies finally caught up with him is neither to be wondered st nor regretted. The circumstances of his death, however, do point an uncomfortable moral. Both the law and a rival underworld clique were after him. The law got its hands on him, tried him for a felony-^nd saw him acquitted. While he was celebrating his acquittal the underworld clique got him—and got him for keep. This, unfortunately, may lead someone to suspect that organized crnaie goes after its foes a lot more capably than organized society 6bMG species of SHAUS • - ,«x- IHIBR— HIGH t, (alary .nnd 459,-. , Addr««i l.i ri AK- b.j no-Qlberi ii'jnltJMtB?' )r work,.L«ra 'ater' ' ',.'
