Give It Straight From tlte Shoulder \ Befoi-e so very long, commencement orators will be popping up like so many jack-in-the-pulpils, all tip and down our broad land, exhorting high school and college senior!; about the world which they are soon to enter. ; Commencement time is still a number of weeks away, hut the orators ".nii'glil well start in now to think about what they are going to .say. For the world has more or less put them on the spot. H'hat can a niitn say lo these youngsters, anyhow? He can't paint a rosy picture for .them, because the plain facts are mostly the reverse of rosy. He can't tell them that the world is waiting to use their skill and energy, because the world can't begin lo liivd jobs for,the people who graduated last year and the year before. He can't, in short—if he is an honest man—tell them much of anything, except that the world is in a bad moss and that they have drawn the unenviable assignment of stepping out into it at the worst possible time. Yet even to say that much is better than to say nothing. For youth is not cowardly. It can stand it to bear the -worst; indeed, there is something .about the resiliency and the .dauntless energy ,of youth which makes a had situation .act as a challenge.. And there is nothing we need right now,.more, than a frame of mind, in which we can see"'in) our tr.biibles a challenge rather than a reason for rushing to ,the nearest wailing wall. .We have had our fill, or ought to have .had it, of drifting along in the pious hope that sooner or later things would right themselves without our help. Maybe there was a time when that sort of attitude would work, but it doesn't work now. We are drifting downstream, and unless we help ourselves 4here is precious little to hope for. So -our innocent young graduates might just as well get it straight from the shoulder, this spring, jinc! know the worst. .And we of the older generation could very profitably listen in with them. For it is our world as well as theirs and we are at least partly responsible for the shape affairs are in these days. Perhaps we clung lo our blind OUT OUR WAY optimism too long, perhaps we grasped at solutions llisit wouldn't work, perhaps we simply were too heedless. Whatever the case, we • can hardly be complacent about the world our youngsters are going out into, nor can we afl'ord to assume that il IK their problem and not ours. The- commencement .speakers, then, may do us (ill .sonic service, if they can get away from the blind, unthinking optimism traditonal to commencement day, and can provoke an honest and fearless dscussion of our ills ami (heir solution, they can give us something well worth remembering. More Disclosures Jt'.s gutting so a iKireoii can't Iwlicvc in anything any mure for more than • a few days at a time, what with all (his illusion shattering business in the scientific field going such great guns. The latest breath-laker comes from D. M. '['. Morelaml, a British authority in the held of lice ruse-arch. 11 seems it's not such a good idea at'lor all lo hojil. the busy bee up lo the younger gcneraiion a.s a model to pattern one's self afler. The hue, according Lo Mr. Moreland, lias practically no sense at all. From Atlantic City comes another disclosure that knocks a few old ideas into a cocked hat. Dr. Victor K. Negus, prominent laryngologist, declares lluit nature never intended the vocal organs to be used for talking at all. Dr. Negus reported this at the American Laryngological, Rhinological and Otological Society convention. Hnl wouldn't it l, n awful to determine- lo abide by nature's intentions? If you did, 'that you'd never know the fun that comes with trying to pronounce such lilies as American Laryn- gological, Rhinological, and Otological Society.

Ills eyes roved the decks of Ilic Empress, as if he were seeking someone out. Hut before he saw her, she was away from the rail, hurrying down lo the seclusion of her cabin before someone tlse might recognize him and turn to study her reaction. Ten minutes later he found her there. Kho was in his arms, her nose buried in Ihe damp, rough lu'eed ol his shoulder, feeling his own heart jinundiiH; as madly as her own. She was crying a liUlc, and laughing too, and she'd for- Koiten completely (hat ho didn't believe in her, that he had run "'.vay . . . •'I love you so much, dear!" lie lold her, very tenderly. "I don't think I knew quite how much until I got on that plane at Miami' ;md left you behind." She looked up, her eyes questioning through the tears. "But why did you go? Why?" Her voice choked just a little. "Because 1 Jove you, and because nobody in tlii s world is ever going to -say an unkind word ;ibont you, as long as I .live!" Still she did not understand. "Come, sit down and I'll explain. But first of all—do you love me, Joyce?" "With all" my heart ..." He kissed her, tenderly at first, then with a quick, tierce eagerness, and in (hat moment she knew that all the world was right, and she would never doubt again. Seated, side by side on the •berth, lie lold her what had happened. "The other evening, aflcr you left us so abruptly," lie- began, lighting a cigarel slowly, "1 came down to find you a few minutes later. The cabin was empty." "I met my steward in the corridor.
