Mrs. \Veml)ridire, who used to be it school-ma'am herself, told assembled educators nt Atlantic City flint teachers make their appeal to the "cold intellect" ami consequently are exerting less and less influence on the affairs of the country. For most of us find it a t'i'Oat deal easier to feel than to think.' On an iiljstivict problem which (Iocs not loach us closely,. \yc ciin use our bruins as ijnpartjally larf the next man; but when something'comes up whjcli cuts riyht across our emotions, thti natural tendency is to let the emotions handle it from start to finish. V * • It is this human trait which makes- the path of a political democracy so very difficult in these trying times. - The de-mngogs and the tiiciiitoi's may be ignorant, of many things, but tjicy are fully awm'c of the uitsc with which people can IKJ persimdcd to use (heir hearts mthcr than their heads. A Hitler, for instance, can seize the enormous amount of emotionnl Tcscnt- "nient against • postwar • conditions in Germany and 'i-ide to power on it. ;Wha f , if his program, 'inicllcctunlly co'nsiejerccif is empty uiid contradictory'! 1 ' He induces-people to FEEL about it r.illier than.iolhiiik about il. Emotionally, they cannot help being i'or it. Consequently it goes over with a bang. • • * * » It is. the same wiy home. When we rushed into the first hectic, pcricd of the NHA, for example, we gave way to our enthusiasms. Wo felt that thi.s was the program that would lead us out of the wilderness. We refused to .listen to the men who analyzed the plan's imperfections; our emotions made us deaf, llence the imperfections-were, not remedied, and a certain disillusionment is the result today. Then there are old age pensions, for another example. We are shown a picture of a system which pays some BLYTHBVrLLE. fARK.) COURIER NEWS OUT OUR WAY ?200 a month to nil ujred folk. Our hearts respond instantly—as whose hearts would not? \\ r o refuge to aunlyxe the plan in- lellcctunlly, to HOC if it would actually work; and by giving ourselves cmo- liojinlly 1 to ,this plnn, 'we make the task of evolving it practical security program just that much more difficult. The greatest difficulty modem democracy faces is this universal human propensity for letting emotion lake the place of honest thought. —liriicu Cation. Man Still A St. Louis man has just learned thnt the old common law presumption that a man is responsible for the nets of his wife can still he invoked. A St. Louis relief worker went to cull on it family which had been on relief for some time, and nn argument developed. Husband nnd wife iitgan colling her names, and before long the wil'e got angry enough to sail in and start clouting her on the bead. Presently the husband and the wife were arraigned in court. The Judge refused to send the wife to juil, because she had four children to look after; instead, he gave the husband a (iO-clay term, although the husband had not lifted his hand during (lie set-to. • Here is an old-but-new slant on the ancient question oJ' husbandly responsibility which, if generally adopted, might give a good many husbands food for sober reflection.
