Tobin, president, International Brotherhood of Teamsters, Cliautl'ciirs, Slablenicn and Helpers of America. "Whatever else you may be guilty of, don't be guilty of imbibing any kind of stimulants or intoxicating liquor during your hours of work," Mr. Tobin says.

'Talking Books 3 for the Blind A progressive step in educating the blind lias been announced by Uobcrt B. Invin, executive director of the American Foundation for the Blind, Inc. To supplement their Braille studies, blind youngsters will I JU taught through the medium of "audible picture books." The idea i.s to paint for the sighlless child a word picture so vivid Unit an exact image of a .scene or a situation will form in hi s n,j n ,|. x| lc (^i nK books arc supplemented will) tests, to be administered by the teacher. On [he basis of such tests, the powers of "observation" and retentive ability of the blind can be compared on a ''fail- basis" vvilh those of normal children. A great deal has been done in recent -vcars to make life more pleasant for the blind.

If c lived dining the first half of the sixteenth ccnlury mid he was Queen Elizabeth's finanelnl adviser. As that august lady was always hard up tor money las all medieval sovereigns were bound to be In a day when inosl people went, through life without ever seeing as much as $10 in actual cashl, he was nn economic expert of no mean ability. Since Antwerp was (hen the great banking • center of the world, he lived for many years in that city and It was there that he discovered Unit Ingenious economic law which ts still known PR Gresham's Uiw. According to this law, "bail money ivlll in- var Inbly lend to drive onl yood money." By bud money, Ihe "CJuetirn merchant" noc ouiy meant actual counterfeit money but also inflated money and every other form of currency that was not somehow or other bucked up by absolutely sound assets. Sir Thomas therefore never censed in his al- tcmjits to convince his royal ml.slri'.ss llml only everlasting nclivity on her purl to protect, the "Rood money" of licr kingdom would prevent the "bad money" from driving the "(jooil money" completely out of clrcuiation. We have since then learned that Gresham's Law Is not merely restricted to money but holds good fur nil other comiiioilllies, both of a material and splrifun) nature. Bad Ihealer will invariably drive out, uooil mentor. Bad music will have a tendency to drive out gooil music. Cheap lilcuralurc, unless carefully walclied. will completely dcslroy good lilcinaUirc. Bad manners will drive oul food manners, and finally, bud Democracy will ahvays drive Dili «ood DrinocTiicy, unlc.w all those who bc- licce In food Democracy will band togclher inio it strong group and will watch thereupon, lioih (lay and night, lest bud Democracy sneak in .through some unguarded loophole and corrupt the genuine article, ns one rotten apple will affect, » whole barrel of good ones. And I shall now rapidly run through the history of Democracy since (he days .of (I lc famous Alhciiinn experiment., to show you how the law of 'nioimis Circs-ham works when applied to Democracy. 1 must once more warn you (hat it i s not a very happy story. lint right now when Democracy on all sides is being Ilirrnlriwl by tyranny, we had better face a few unpleasant fa els if we wish lo Mivn ourselves.
