Comoii People Lose Taste In Society Oiic of the inlercslinjj litllo developments of the lasl ilcciulc lui.s been llio decline and slow dentil of Society, .spelled with a capital S. This institn- . lion has been expiring so gradually, ami peacefully that most of us didn't know she was ill. It is only by taking a sight at the pre-war generation, so u< sptak, that we can really appreciate the change. All this somehow is called to mind by a recent dispatch from Newport, H. I., to the elt'cct that John Jacob Astoi has induced bis I'nllicr-in-kiw, Fianeis 0 French, to cancel publication of a book "which dealt with society for what it is." Father-in-law, apparently, had been moved to •debunk the distinguished 'milieu'in which he lives, moves, and has his being. The fate of Ne.wport, Southampton, and Aikcn, one gntlierK, hung trembling in the balance; then, at. the eleventh hour, son-in-law came gallantly to the rescue, the hideous manuscript was laid away, and the dowagers wheezed easily once more. To all of which there remains to be said'only: What of it? And ihat sj mhol ol public boredom with Society and its ways is the sign by which we know that Society has become moribund. If your memory goes back two decades or more you can remember that PIC-WAI novelists bad one ever-popular theme—the efforts of l the newly rich 1 and deceiving family to "break into Society." This yarn was presented in a do/.cn incarnations a year, and tho iciuhng ptiblip lapped it up. What Society did and thought and felt \\.i-, important, or seemed so, in Ihobc da\s. liven the lowliest mortal liked to cock bis eye on the Cliff Walk .it Newpoit every so often, and sec hew his, betters were disporting themselves. Hut a great .many things have happened since then. Young matrons have put their distinguished names into paid advertisements, certifying that they rest their patrician frames on So-and-So's mattresses, or smear their faces with Wliooais's cold cream, or SCHC 'Jastee-Beane coffee at the feasts. Older matrons have married prize nghlcift and gigolos. Their squire* have gone shame-faced into court at the beckoning of chorus girls, beauty contest winners, and opera singers. OUT OUR WAY Their sons have made life ciisy-for the editors of the tabloids. Ami that is about all that Society has done. It lias not furnished us with our leaders in government, industry, tho arts, or the army and the navy, as' British society has done. 11 has not set the tone for the social and intellectual life of the, country, as has the upper class in Europe. It has not, in short, done anything at all to recompense the country, for the expense of supporting it. So the country .as a whole has simply forgotten about it. Cone are the days when a novelist could produce a best-seller by portraying the struggle for social eminence. Gone arc the days when the- reading public panted to know tho details of Mrs. Stuyvosant DePoysler's little dinner party for 1)00 at Tuxedo I'ark. Those things just don't matter to anyone any more. —Bruce Cation.

Our recollection is that such banners are forbidden by city ordinance. Why its enforcement lias been suspended we do not know. Certainly by their variety the banners themselves absolve the powers that be of any suspicion that political interest is responsible for their leniency. It occurs to us, however, that if it is permissible for a candidate to use Main street as a signboard there is no good reason why merchants should not adopt the same means of inviting the public to view their Ultimately we may achieve canopy of sufficient density to shut out the rays of the hot summer sun. wares, a gay A Solemn and Terrible Safely-First Lesson The nmbulnncc wreck nt licclor Is a solemn mid terrible n-nrning against excessive speed in the operation of, any motor vehicle on no matter whnt errnnd.

He was Jaime l«iird, a rich young man who followed the races from Hia- Icuh to Santa Anita to Saratoga again. Ann thought that he must have been ill, for a who followed the sun alb the time as a vocation should have a tan complexion. This was Iho travel office in which she had made arrangements for her vacations each of the past seven years. Ann hadn't intended planning her vacation today, but the Eight of Jaime Laird in the bureau gave her an adventurous spur. She entered the room with its attractive travel displays, and waited \vliilc the fabulous Jaime ,aird was served. Ann stole furtive glances in the mirror as she wailed.
