Tiiero was almost an awocalypl- J" ical character to these prophecies and revelations. WD are a littlo bit wiser now, appi'.r- ; cully. This kind of talk is not heard iiuiie so. fvctly; and in that fact lies the one [,'reat benefit which this extremely unpleasant depression is bringing- !t is impossible to make much progress \v!i:n you ilir;-!)iiiit all obstacles in '.advance, (Success of any kind is only to be ha:l by liiml work and deep - thought.

To INK! out just what the margin may be between the promise and Ihe reality, and lo learn how this margin may be wiped out— these are tasks culling for the best brains the country has. Our present attitude is favorable to Hie impartial -tudy that such tasks will rujuii'e. The old attitude wasn't. In the long run the hard times of 1SKJO will probably be recognized as a .salutary experience— even though they arc pretty hard lo put u[> with right now. The Real Objection to Gas The use of poi-on gas is generally listul as one of the supreme horrors .,of modern wiirfmv. It is interesting, therefore, lo ni;tu that the surgeon general of the U. S. army points out that poisuii gtis killed not more than 200 Amtrican soldiers during the. World \\'ar, in comparison wilh the ;i8,147 who were killed by projectiles. Of soldiers sent to hospitals,' some 70,000 hail beer, gassed as compared with mme limn 1-17,000 who had bum woundi d. Obviously, poison gas has not come close to replacing bullets and shells ou the ImUldielil. What causes the agitation against gas, of course, is the way it can be used against civilian iiou-couibiitants. A sustainal gas bombardment from the aii) might easily destroy half the population of a big cily in half an hour. It is for this reason ihat gas looms as the deadliest weapon in the modern arsenal —despite these figures from the. last war. SIDE GLANCES By George Clark TUP.
