Civilization May Lead to a Simpler Life Ik'njjiniin Franklin has been culled "the first civilized ^mericiiii"; nevertheless, wise old ninn Uiut lie was, lie WHS never entirely sold on Ihe idea that the civili/.cd man is really happier than '.he uuliiuifM savage. All lliis comes to light in the discovery of marginal comments by Franklin in mi old book owned by the library of Congress. This .book, published in 1770, undertook to review the hapiwies.; which civilization bring;-, and .Franklin .scribbled his dissent, 1111 the edge ot one of the pages. "The (iiil'ertnce," he wrote, "is not KO great a;i. may be jum^mcd. Happiness is more generally and eijiiiilly iliiru'iwl mutiny Kitvages than in our rivili'/.oi! .sot-Julio;;. No Kuru|)ejin who has once U'sled savage life can al'ler- wai'ds bear to live in our societies. ''Tiie care and labor of providing for artificial mid fashionable wants, the sight of KO many rich wallowing in supedluoiiii plenty, whereby so ninny arc kept poor and distressed by want; the insotente of office, the snares and •plagues 01 law, the restraints of custom, all conlribtilo to < them with what we call civil society." * t * Jf .Kranldii! found the leisurely pastoral society of his, day uncoinfort- «bly complex and conlnidiclwyi one wonders what he would have thought of life in the America of l!);i'5. Probably he would have yelled for a new sheet of paper and sat down to make a new list of the wiiys in which the savage has it all over the civilized jnim. "•'"'• For s.iv«t'cs, after all, do not get them'selvcs into the kind of tangle where people go shoeless because there are too. many shoes, breadless because there is loo much wheat, and money- less because there is loo much hard cash in the laud. Nor, getting themselves into difficulties, do they seek to remedy shortages of essentials by cutting down the available supplies of food, clothing, and other necessities. • : * * • » In tec!' matters, too, Ihe savage has the bulge on us. He does not have to road about Hauplmann trials; he does not have to listen to crooner^ nor does he kill 85,000 people a year in the process of moving from one place lo tinbllior, us we do. . He docs not have the infidelities and imbecilities of a Hollywood'lo support, nor must he listen to senators explaining Hint his i country will go lo the (logs if it joins the World Court. Is the answer, then, that we give the country back to the Indians forthwith, and woo the simple life while siiiiMlUiig placidly under n tree? Not at all. We simply might remember Ihul the society we hiwc today is not an end, hut a beginning. Hy civilizing ourselves, we have ..surrounded ourselves with much foolishness; our only hope is that we .shall discard most of the foolishness as we go along, and some day reach a stale which will repay us for the vexations we are going through now. —Bruce Calton. ihc Comptroller's Office Kliite.
