Greed Dim* Luster of Man's "Miracles" ' THIRTY-SIX years ago, almost to the day, a gifted Italian ; 1 sat him down, tapped a telegraph key, and performed a miracle. The sputtering, crackling sparks which his key-tapping caused to jump into the air were weak little things—apparently. They flashed and died, and a person half a mile away •-• coufd neither have seen nor heard them. But somehow they reached up into empty space and tap- ped an invisible source of energy; and far across the Atlantic .ocean they caused a telegraph receiving set to click out a message. Gugiielmo Marconi had bridged space and had sent a message 3000 miles through the inert atmosphere. His miracle of wireless telegraphy is a familiar one, by now; so familiar that most of the time we fail to recognize it as a miracle at all. and take it just as much for granted as we do such every-day miracles as sunrise, a baby's laugh or the love of a boy for a girl. But it remains a miracle, nevertheless; and we might have a better understanding of the world we live in if we could remember that the whole structure of modern society is built on just such miracles, so that the mere existence of our complicated civilization is one of the most breath-taking miracles of all time. * * * THE real truth about man is not at all the sort of truth that 1 the "realists" nroclaim—that he is just another animal, with greed and self-interest his eternal motive-springs. It is a much more noble and surprising truth: that he is a miracle worker, able to transcend the limitations which nature has put upon him, capable of surpassing himself and of building for himself a world infinitely complex, beautiful and wondrous. Consider Marconi's miracle, for instance and all that has grown out of it. The ship at sea is no longer isolated. Nation now talks with nation, over mountain barriers, limitless deserts and storm-bound ocean. The air by night is filled with music, whick can be tapped by any man who owns a cheat) little box of tubes and wires. And the ordinary dailv life that we live is keyed to this succession of miracles, so that if they should suddenly cease to exist we could not carry on our regular, routine at all. ' • • . , ""'- '" ?

The old jungle- rule of tooth and clam fits this era no better than does a stone age hatchet. War, dictatorship, conscienceless wealth, unscrupulous clemagogery^, oppression in anv or all of it.s forms—these things are disastrously out of date in our modern age. Miracle-workers like Marconi have set us free of the limitations of our physical world; now it is up to us to set ourselves free of the limitations of our own blindness, greed and folly. cases may appear during sleep.

Full Steam Ahead THE industrial skies are pretty dark these days, and the steel 1 industry in particular is singing the blues. But it is with while to look at some remarks made by Nathan L. Miller, ex- governor of New York and now general counsel for United States Steel, at the launching of a 610-foot steamship at Lorain, 0., the other day. ^ This ship, the second giant carrier built this fall for U, S. Steel's subsidiary, the Pittsburgh Steamship Co., is large, up- to-date—and expensive. And Governor Miller truly remarked that U. S. Steel "is not preparing for the undertaker" when it builds ships such as these. "Construction of the ships," he added, "is only part of the corporation's capital expenditures in face of current depressing business conditions. United States Steel is expross- ing its confidence in business by keeping plants, fleets and other equipment in the highest state of efficiency to produce steel cheaply and pass on to employes, in the form of good wages, profits that are not absorbed by high federal taxes."

It did not, apparently, seem at all strange to Mrs. Trent that from the beginning the young flyer settled into the old-maidish routine of their evenings with complete satisfaction. It did seem strange to Linda that she was admitted so unreservedly into the hallowed family circle. She soon understood, however. It was necessary to the proud grandmother's sense of showmanship that she have an udience to whom 'to exhibit this uperlative grandson of hers. The Id lady relaxed and glowed 'roudly.

"I know that he thinks well enough of women to have a new sweetheart in every port." "That's where you're wrong." Barry spoke abruptly without looking up from the pipe he was filling. "The lists are now closed." Then, as if startled at his own sudden iapse into seriousness, he broke into some absurd sailors' ditty about "The gal in Singapore." . . . That was like Barry, not serious for long. But his grandmother glanced sharply at him, and her face tightened in a way Linda had come to know and dread. She's jealous, Linda thought. She'd much rather think there was a girl in every port than—just one. And knew that she would, too. * * * T>UT it was not until a few days before Christ/.ias that Linda began to understand the thing that was happening to her. She glanced up from her book one evening as a gentle swish told her that Mrs. Trent's knitting had fallen again; and her eyes, a.s they had come to do, met those of Captain Trent across the room. Only thi.s time his eyes were not amused, as if at some precious secret between them. They were burning upon her with an intentness that made her flush and tingle all over.
