Making ; There wasn't anything vcvy ,sens;tlion- 'al about the brief cable dispatch whidi Itolii, recently, of a (ire which swept tho ;incredibly ancient town of T-u-sus, in ;Asia Minor—Tarsus, whore thn Apostle ;?anl used to live. It wasn't much of ;a fire, apparently, and even if il had )Lceii noljorly on tin's side of (lie sea ;would have cared much anyway. ; But if you hnve an idle and rcflcc- •tive mind, the dispatch might scl you •thinking, just the same. It is such a . 'neat little commentary on the strungc and unexpected ways in which fainc - can come to a town. Doubtless Tarsus had its civic boost. ers, in the old days—and its energetic citizens who wanted things to be bigger and better, who spoke with pride of the town's industry and commerce; and who were eminently practical in all things. And if you had told those boosters that their town would bo world famous 20 centuries later they would have beamed at yon and felt that their fondest dreams were coining true. ,'Qn).v—they would Imve died of .surprise if they could have known that the only reason for their town's immortality was the fact that it served as a home for the moody and unpredictable Saul, son of the tenlmaker. * * * But that is very often the way \thmg-. go ; in this world, and some-. •'•"iow^ilV.just a..little -bit amusing ?!whe"n"yon stop to 'tliink aoouVir ^ Whitman, who remarked that the greatest city in the world was the place which produced the greatest men, regardless of its size or its commercial importance, was simply expressing the way in which the race often ap- p.raises its towns in the long run. •'•' We remember Tarsus because of Paul and for no other reason. In the same way the little English town f Stratford is known because of Shake-peavo, and the island of Corsica y known because.of Napoleon. ; Do you want your town to be famous? Stroll through the public schools. You may see there, hunched Over a desk, some chubby youngster who will eventually confer immortality ui»n the place. —Bruce Cat ton. • ;.0ur task Icday is not to expand or to exploit, but firmly to Integrate our induslrics In the society they are designed to M rvc. -Acini" Governor Herbert H.

"If I had a brainy boy and wanted him to make money, I'd refuse to educate him," he said. "A good education should teach him not to sacrifice his life to money milking. I can't make money. 1 don't want to badly enough. Why do you think I can tench you to make it?" Here is a note that ought to be sonmlcd a bit oflencv by our educators.
