We Siill Are Infants in Social Progress The fuel ' that modern civilization lias two fitces, one of whielt IUI.H been modeled with much more skill tliini the other, comes close to being llie basic point of nil our troubles. These two fiiccs ;ire the nuitcjriiil realm of science, invention, and technical progress, on the one side, and the social realm of human relnlion.s, emotions, and mass thinking, on the other. The former is very far advanced; the hitler is a constanl reminder lhal we are rclalively only a few generations out of barbarism. A sinking illustration of this was furnished not long "go by Dr. William E. Wickemlcn, president of llie Case School of Applied Science. • » » Suppose, says Dr. Wiekcnden, thai you translate Ihe history of. the human race, covering approximately u million year?,' into the terms of a man's lifetime. Suppose lhal the race, in other words, is a man 51) years old. How long has Ihc race been civili/ctl? "In terms of personal adjustment rather (turn race adjustment," he answers, "it is as if civilization hud Ijc- gun only iO days ago, as if ;i cumulative science went back to midnight, and a habit of deliberate invention only to this morning, and the age of electric power had begun about the time we readied our offices tin's morning '' • , . : • --'- In other words, we have been out of the wilderness only a very short time, and our Acquisition of those complex tools by which modern society is maintained dates buck only an hour or so. ! That being the case, it is small wonder Ibat we have not yet discovered how to extract the utmost in human values from the machines which our ingenuity has devised. We have marvclousiy well at the job of inventing: tilings, but we have made hardly any progress at the job of learning how to use them after wo liavo them invented. Thai is why wn have starvation in the midst of plenty; why we suffer because we have too much of every- BLYTHEVILLE, (ARK.) COURIER NEWS thing, mid not liuciitisu we have loo little. Our task now is to eiluctilc ourselves up to the level of our seienU.stH and our technicians. Until we do »o, their achievements will do n.s nearly as much hiirin as Kooil. —liruuc C'aUoit, Poor Psychology One lone Civil War veteran marched in (he Memorial Day parade this year in the city of Cleveland—one old man in a blue coat, while-haired and xlooiwd, valiiuitly sleppini,' along to honor his departed comratl"^. And u litlle group of Communists, iiK on the curl), hoourl him as he marched li'y. In that incident you iiavr llie nuiin reason why Communism has Tailed to make headway in the United Slates. Its adherents! simply f;iil to understand the America^ spirit^ The- Civil War veli'riin, whether he wears hluc or gray, oti'iipies a peculiarly tender and holy spot in American hearts. The man who fails to umlcr- sland thai fails to understand everything. So IOIIK as Communism is in the hands of men who can Ijoo the lasl of llie Civil War veterans, no one needs lo worry about i[. Men st> abysmally igTioruiil of Americiiii iisychology can never con veil many Americans. Encouraging Sign It isn't often that you gel a second edition of a world's fair—especially in this modern era, when a great exposition seems lo slarl under greater handicaps Hum was Hie ease a generation ago. But the Century- of Progress exposition, in Chicago, has now officially begun its second season, and llie record is u rather remarkable one. It indicates, in (lie first place, Hint Chicago i.s pulling on a pretty good sort of show for its visitors. If a large number of visitors were not expected, the fair wouldn't reopen; and there wouldn't bo a chance of getting" them if those who went last summer hadn't made favorable rejwrts. Furthermore, il shows that lite country is in boiler health financially than it was a couple of years ago. A lot of money is, going to be spenl al thai fair lliis summer. The mere facl lhal people have il to s|>eml is. a pretty good sign of re- luming prosperity. MONDAY, JUXK If I could count on six runs every time 1 pitched.
