The Real Foundation Of American Life Awny back in tlic days of tlic Ho' m:ui empire, when the Cacsiir.s were worried by ;t steadily rUiiifi- tax rate nnd a slow stasnaMoii 01" liusincss, tlic jjopulacc was kept <iuiel l>y a judicious mixture of bread and games. The government undertook to feed the hungry, bringing in great shiploads of wheat from Alexandria. Anil since Rome was full of unemployed, great gladiatorial shows were staged frequently in the coliseum, to keep the proletariat's mind olT its troubles. , The upshot, as everybody knows, was that nobody worried about anything and the empire finally collapsed of its own weight. * * * Al! this ancient history is mentioned here because there are people who think something similar is happening in America today. President A. H. Uphnm of Miami University told an Ohio teachers' convention the other day Ihsil right now •we are in a fair way to slide down to the.old Roman level. On one hand we have vast masses of people whose first interest is in getting enough to cat, , and who are looking lo the federal government to meet that need. On the other, we have developed a craving for a circus type of entcrlain- nieiitA-world .series games, great football contests, aberrations such as marathon dance contests, erooncrs, fan dancers and the grotesqucries of professional boxing and wreslling matches. The result, says President Upham, is that we are apt to forget Hit values that really matter—self-donial, service, idealism, a taste for literature and art, and so on. There is no question Unit you coiild make out a good case for pessimism, if you chase. We do support a lot of "entertainments" that seem lo havo been drawn up by and for morons. ' And yet it is very easy to assume that these things niattT more than really is the case. There is plenty of froth on the surface of American life, heaven knows. But beneath it all there Hows a swift, deep, and powerful current—an awareness of life's real problems, a determination lo do -'omeUiing cITcctive about them, an idealism that will vc- spond whenever anyone makes a proper appeal to it. The biggest mistake anyone could make today would be to assume that the great mass of the populace is heedless and flippant. Underneath, there is a driving force iind a seriousness of purpose that never should be forgotten. —Bruee Cation. FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 3, 1933 The Final Riles The American Federation of Labor is beginning to collect "museum exhibits" on child labor. Shop bulletin hoard notices, pay envelopes, newspaper clippings, photographs, letters— all sorts of things that show what child labor was and how it 'operated are being assembled under direction of President William Green, so I hat future generations can know just how the childhood of this nation ivas exploited. Now the interesting things about this move is the implication that goes with it. The federation is making this collection for the simpler reason that it believes child labor to be definitely a thing of the past. It believes that within a very few years child labor will be unknown in America; so it is laying away its exhibits while there still is time. Ke\v things that have happened this year have been of much more importance than this victory over an ancient menace to national well-being. Perfect Americanization There is something 1 intensely interesting about the recent revelation of the names of the Aloy family, in San Francisco's Chinatown. JIaybc you didn't read about it, in the papers? Well, (hero are seven sons in this family of • California's Chinese, and their names are as follows: William Howard Taft Moy, Thomas Jefferson Jloy, Theodore Roose-' veil Moy, Abraham Lincoln Moy, William JIcKinlcy Moy, Ulysses S. Grant Moy, and George Washington Moy. The roll call speaks ,for itself. -It indicates not only a pretty thorough bit of Americanization, but a staunch and lusty pride iii the land of this family's adoption. Here, apparently, is one Chinese family that has done everything humanly possible to become 100 per cent American. Glancing at those names, one can do no less than wish the San Francisco Moys) lots of luck and all the prosperity they can stand. .
