If they are offered safer, more useful and more convenient ways, they will not condescend to take a single step to test them. —Wang An-shih The 300-year Sung dynasty (960-1279) has been called the outstanding example in Chinese history of Confucianist ideals in practice. A refurbished Confucianism, called Neo- Confucianism and tingedwith ideas borrowed from Buddhism and Taoism, was firmly entrenched as the national philosophy-religion. Confucian learning was the core and substance of the civil service examinations, the one road to public employment or acclaim. China paid a high price, however, for what with all its faults was probably the best system any people had ever yet devised for governing themselves. The emphasis upon skill in liter- CViineat Rbckef* Greet-ft* Barbarian »ry composition and giving the orthodox answers rewarded conformity and discouraged originality. A move to reorganize the imperial examinations to test candidates' practical knowledge was made in the llth century by a prime minister named Wang An-shih. Like the socialist reformer Wang Mang, 1,000 years before him, he also attempted to give the state a monopoly over commerce, improve the tax structure, make loans to farmers and strengthen the nation's declining military power. Unfortunately, his reforms did not outlive the emperor who sponsored them. In culture, the Sung was another brilliant, if not original, era, particularly in landscape painting. It also .saw the invention of movable type for printing by one Pi Sheng, who carved type out of clay 400 years before Gutenberg. But the Sung was as weak militarily as it w»s strong culturally. Taxes grew heavy under the double burden of an inflated bureaucracy ind invasions by the eternal barbarians of the north, who more and more often were bought off -rather than fought off. Even a new invention, the. "fire cannon —a primitive rocket—was not enough to keep a large part of China proper from being occupied by the barbarians throughout the Sung 1 . In the late 12th century, a new scourge arose on the arid plains of Mongolia—Genghis Khan, whose undefeatable hordes swept all before them from northern China to Russia to India to Persia to Europe itself. . It was the great khan's grandson, Kublai, who finally.vanquished the last of the unwarlike Sung. By 1279, and for the first time in history, all of China was under foreign rule.

How To Be Unhappy By Emmet Fox Sit down quietly where you are not likely to be disturbed. Relax the body — and begin to hink about Yourself. It does not matter very much what you ictually think, as long as it is about yourself. Think about youself, and every time your thought wanders to something higher, bring it back gently but relentlessly. If possible think about t h e past. Think over all the mis- fakes you have ever made, going right back to childhood. Think of all the foolish things you have wasted. Especially Think over all the opprotunities you have missed and the time you have wasted. Especiall think of all the occasions upon which you have been badly treated. Consider carefully the various injustices of which you have been the victim and think how much better off you might be in various ways today if other people had only behaved properly in times gone by. Remind yourself vividly of the incidents in detail, feeling as angry or hurt as you possibly can at each recollection. Even if a particular person has never actually offended you, realize tliat he might have done so if he had had the chance, and tell yourself that he has probably talked about you anyway. Think about your body and wonder if your age or your job or the climate isn't beginning to tell. See if you cannot discover a pain or an ache somewhere; you probably can if you search long enough. Think about business or finances as gloomily as possible and even if they are going well now, insist that this is probably too good to last. In any case, think about your- self, that is the main point, and if you will keep this up faithfully for fifteen or twenty minutes, there can be no doubt (about the result. You will have attained your goal. News Of Men In Service been awarded the U. S.
