It seems to have begun with David Copperfield, a superb bit of cinema entertainment and to have come to an appropriate climax at the year's end with another Dickens classic, A Tale of Two Cities.

In the meantime, there have been such real life pictures as The Barretts of Wimpo! Sfreet and Mutiny On the Bounty, the adventures and activities of actual people translated to the screen, the one from a play, the otker from a book. Critics who have defended some of the pornographic output of recent playwrights on the ground that "that is life" hardly can find fault with the classics of Dickens on the ground that they lack virility or have not the fidelity of the plain unvarnished truth.

Professor Breasted tells us that in 380 B. C. the able Greek astronomer and mathematician, Eudoxus, visited Egypt and there learned that the year was really about 365 days long.

Thirteen million sportsmen throughout the Nation are, or should be, expressing a sincere gratitude and appreciation to President Roosevelt for the finest gesture toward saving wild life ever proposed by any of the Nation's leaders in all American history. The President has personally invited envoys from every State in the Union to meet with him in Washington, D. on February 3, 1936, to devise ways and means that will conserve and preserve the country's natural resources, its wild life, game birds and game fish. The very manner of issuing the call is an assurance that the outcome will be a constructive success. Governors of each State have been requested to select two representatives as delegates to the Wild Life Conference, which, graced with the dignity of earnest endeavor, will have in this national conservation forum a membership double that of the United States Congressional, legislative 44 1 4 'LLi.

Japan adhered to the Gregorian calendar in 1873, China in 1912 and Turkey in 1917.

Soviet Russia adopted it in slightly modified form in 1918, changing the leap year rule, which is even more accurate than the Gregorian. Their calendar provides that century years shall be leap years only in case their numbers, when divided by nine, give a remainder of two or six, reducing the average length of their civil year to within three seconds of the time length of the tropical year. The Russian and Gregorian calendars will agree, however, until 2800 A.D., when the accumulated differences will be one day, the Gregorian year being a leap year and the Russian an ordinary one. Serbia and Greece adopted the new calendar in 1923. Except the Moslem countries, who are prohibited by Mohammed from changing their lunar calendar, nearly the entire civilized world is using the Gregorian calendar as the measure of time.

Similar units from news reports and library records could be continued indefinitely, indicating conclusively that Mr. Homans' estimates on life expectancy were approximately correct when he constructed and published his American Experience Table ot Mortality in 1861. Meantime adult expectancy has shrunk about five years.

Insurance tables are the products of actuaries in the employ of insurance directors and trustees.

In the research laboratories of the higher educational institutions the insurance tabulations are not accepted as altogether reliable or reflecting accurately the true life span.

Such dawn of the new year is near, a discussion of our time table is especially in order. The day, the month, and the year are natural units of time measure. The first unit defines the earth's rotation on its axis, the second measures the interval during which the moon revolves about the earth, and the third gauges the period of the earth's circuit around the sun. The fact that no two of these units are commensurable that is, that the year cannot be divided into an integral order to bring the date of Easter business and nobody is even assembling statistics to expose how rc-lly inefficient enforcement is.
