Our Need h Dreamer* lo Use Our Wealth Tlio commencement orators already have begun, lo advance lo llic edfje of I lie platform to tell the youthful graduates what life is all ulxnil., and it is to hu hoped that at Ictist a few of them will remember to point out Mial tho world today is more profoundly in need of oUl-fasliioncil, idealistic dreamers than it has Ijeen for many generations. To he sure, this sort ol' ad vice isn't popular. The commencement orator usually feels he has done his duty if he rings the changes on the old platitudes, such as "Honesty is Iho best policy." After he has done that for hall' an hour, and has reminded his listeners that the fate of the nation rests in their hands, he takes a sip of water aul sits down, conscious of a job well done. lint the plain fact remains that, unless we can get back to the Kcein); of visions and the dreaming of dreams, there is precious lillle hope for our. country 'or for ourselves. * * * We gave up dreams and visions, as a nation, about the lime llial Oraul's guns began to hammer down the dc- feiucs of Vicksburg. We put our trust in finance, industry, and our ability to move mountains without tho aid of faith; and for a hall' century or more we seemed to be doing right well. ^ But something happened lo us,' while WT were doing (hat. The old American dream—that on this continent men would he able to turn what ought to he into what is—somehow got mislaid. In its place we went hook, line, and sinker for the idea that the pursuit of riches was the end of wisdom. And the mad dance of the 1929 boom, culminating in a crash that almost wrecked us, was the logical conse- • <JUt!l)CC. Now the point about our fumbling effovls to rescue ourselves from that crash is thai, materially, we lack 'nothing.-. We still have the ability lo produce wealth: the -.'oil, the mines, the factories, the transportation systems, and all the rest, which .would automatically guarantee prosperity if human life were anything that could be reduced to a simple proh't-and-loss statement. * * * What we do not have is the ability lo use these tilings in a way to attain human happiness. And what is that lack but the lack of Ihe old ability to dream dreams and to make them come I rue? The very word, "America," used lo have a high and holy sound in men's cars, because it slood for the embodiment of such dreams. It be- .spoke a nation of people who were never sutinliod will) imperfect reality, a nation in which (he tomorrow that might be was always before men's eyes, worlh risks and sacrifices and un- stinled effort. Wo need to gel back to that, today. lieing solidly practical has landed us in the dilch. Can we get out of il, until we regain Die habit of finding a vision in Ihe sky and making it our goal? . —liruce Cation.

The very rich milk that comes from Jerseys and Aldcrncys usu- Wly is not us siitlsfnctory ns tlmt 'from average trade cows. Ordinarily, (lie best milk is Hint taken from a herd and mixed. Nowadays milk production and distribution Is -largely under state control. The milk taken from the cows is mixed nntl put into sler- ill/.ed palts. The cows have been tuberculin tesled. The milk is pasteurized, or perhaps fust certified as lo its freedom from harmful germs nnd then pasteurized. In country homes and in districts where milk is obtained fresh from the cows, the fluid should be boiled at once. Then it may be strained through several thicknesses of cheesecloth Into jars or milk bottles which avc been boiled. After being filled with Ihe milk, these bottles should be covered anct cooled immediately. Milk for older children also should be boiled, unless it has been pasteurized. Pasteurization o. boiling destroys the germs by heat. Most of the germs In good milk are not dangerous to human health. Occasionally, however, the streptococcus which produces septic, sore throat may R et into' milk, and more rarely such dangerous germs as those of typhoid, diphtheria, or scarlet fever.

Mis blue eyes were twinkling. "You got the dope all right that time, though these lovely ladies make grand watchdogs for the Kiiys higher up. Lame is out of town." Gail smiled. "You know Mr. Lame?" she questioned "Oil, yes, he's a grand chap, hut his partner — well, you'd think Held's purpose in life was to nip genius in the bud. He hates Larne's generosity and his interest in artists. Thinks encouraging icllows like me — and jnaybe you — " (he glanced toward the big brown envelope Gail was carrying) "is a waste of money.

After all, this man was a stranger, and Miss Cranston had advised her to beware of strangers, cspcciallv in a city like New York. "Well, if that's how you feel, all right.'' Derek pulled his hat. on al its accustomed rakish angle. His eyes twinkled. <; I thought l>crhaps you were a stranger and a word from someone who knows (he ropes might save you time and tears!" For a moment Gail raised her eyes to Derek's. He was so tall. Six feet two in his sox lie would have told you! "Well, if you're sure it won't he loo much bother. I guess you can help me." "That's the girl! I know a little place just around the corner. Let's go Ihorc find talk things over. It won't he busy yet. We're early. Later you almost have to fight for a table!" the waitress who was dressed as a shepherdess Derek led the way to a corner table, "is'ow," he said, handing Gail the menu, "what do you want?" "Oh, I'm really not hungry," she answered. "1 haven't eaten ycl, so you night as well have something and \ecp me company. Besides, I :liink you're going lo have a busy afternoon. They have delicious Cornish pasties here. Let me order one for you." "All i ighl then," Gail answered. "Now, while she's gelling our order," said Derek, as the waitress [leaded toward the kitchen, "let's talk things over. I suppose the first thing you want is a job." "Yes, I guess a job's what I want. Of course later I'll have my own place—" Gail stopped. 'Here I am, starting to tell you all my dreams when I hardly know you! 1 along the shoit block, Gail told her companion about the prize she had \von and her hopes to become a designer. "Congratulations!' 1 he cried "Lame's a mighty good judge r.ven though he generally has a jury of three or four fashion authorities—colors <i{ swanky magazines—he always has the fina say-EH, and he's never picked i failure yd. So there, I guess I'm talking ( c) a famous designer Well, here v .-e are." Walkmj do',<n two steps they entered tho ba=?ment of a'brown- one. Maybe he'll be a friend some day." "That's bcllcr. Now, a toast to our friendship." Gail raised her glass, and as her gaze met Derek's above the rim of the glass she felt strangely thrilled. As they readied the door, Derek said, -"I Ihink you'll stand a chance with Madame Lizette. She's always making changes, but remember, while she's got a wonderful reputation among her customers, I've no idea what she's like to work for. Still, even if she is a temperamental old piece you'll get experience. It would be belter than a wholesale house!" "Well, thanks for all your advice. You've been wonderful, and I'll surely let you know how I make out." "Fine, and here's luck to you/ called Derek, helping Gail on to a Fifth avenue bus. * e "WHAT next, Mees Carolie!"

"What am I lo do, Mces Carolie? My wonderful designer leaves me flat! Flics lo California this morning because a movie magnate wants him to create some clothes for a new picture. And not a thank you, Mecs Carolie, to me, for all I have done for him. . . . Can't you zay 7. o m c I h i n g?" shrilled Madame, as lears ranged themselves on her painted eyelashes.
