Yelland Necessity for Thinking Is Stressed in Discussion a t Y . W . C A . Poniting out the necessity for peo- ·pel to do some discriminating thinking along the lines accepted by everyone as matter of fact, Curtis -.TcUand reviewed Stuart Chase's new book, "The Economy of Abundance 1 ' at the meeting of tie literature department of the Woman's club Wednesday afternoon at the Y. W. C. A. "The person who knows he can do and will do is dangerous but the person who pays no attention to any new thought is more dangerous," Mr, Yelland said. "There are those ·who wave the constitution and the flag and claim to be first class American citizens, and they bore me. The' jconstitution of the United States is not immutable like the law of gravity. Anyone has the right to question its practicability. It was Wife Preservers Keep your knife blade at a slant while cutting linoleum or oilcloth. It will cut more easily and leave a. beveled edge on the oilcloth. not so much the constitution but the citizens themselves who made the United States great. Rugged Individualists. "The policy of 'rugged individualism' which is much like the European laissez-faire policy has offered the right to do anything which the people and the law' will permit and keep out of jail. " 'The Economy of Abundance' consolidates the aspects of industry, society, politics, science and invention. Mr. Chase' is a clever writer TWO SECONDS every morning (the cost...a penny or less) to be SURE of your Hair DANDERINE makes you sure of your hair; takes two seconds to put on your comb Less than a minute--less than a penny to be awe of your hair all day long! To know it's clean, and looks clean. To know it will stay as you arranged it. And to have a scalp free, at last, from dandruff. . That is what moistening your comb with a few drops of Danderine ·will'do. And what no amount of dry-combing will ever do Kearlj all iair*necds the help that Danderine 3^ns"' s «3A---dash-of Danderine jnormng and Jiigbt when you comb it, makes an amazing difference in lie way any hair looks all the time! When you've .washed your hair, a little Danderine will keep it from going helter-skelter.' When you pay a dollar for a wave 5 Danderine will help you keep it. and he has done a magnificent Job n his new book. He has been criticized for his Utopian ideas and for offering no plan of recovery, but I ike his book for both of these things. "Mr. Chase contrasts the economy of abundance with the economy of scarcity and points out that society should have raised its standard of iving by 10 per cent instead of two er cent with the coming of abund- ince. The economy of abundance is more dangerous than the economy of scarcity. It glc;-:fies and sancti- : ies anything that will make money --not what is serviceable, but what is vcndable. Co-Ordinate Sources. · "According to the author if the sources of food,- shelter, clothing, energy, education, recreation and transportation could be co-ordinated, we could furnish for everyone more than he could use and have leisure as well." Mr. Yelland presented a number of ideas which Mr. Chase gives in his book,' among them that labor is ceasing to be important and that the struggle will be not between capital and labor, but with the proletarian and the unemployed and capital; that machinery, equipment and distribution are more important than man power; that state lines will be lost and that the United States wil be regionalized; that abundance makes us interdependent; that the selling of stocks and bonds is a form of socialism since it makes the purchaser a party to a centralized property; that big industries are assuming the moral obligations of public utilities. In concluding his talk Mr. Yelland stressed the importance of Individ ual constructive thinking and com mended Mr. Chase's book. C ommittees Begin Work for Comedy [. N.

"A doctor, I guess." There was- no enthusiasm in the reply, but rather a resigned acceptance of a fact. Sam's father and grandfather were doctors, and from babyhood it had been assumed that of course the boy would follow in their steps. Many parents feel that a taste for a profession must necessarily be handed down from father to son, and pride themselves on an unbroken line of doctors, or lawyers, or clergymen or engineers, never stopping to remember that often one or more of the list have been, if not failures, at least not happy men. No one is surprised to hear that a poet's or musician's or artist's son is not a success in his father's work. Genius is not expected to be invariably hereditary in the male line. Neither c.rc talents or special aptitudes or tastes necessarily handed down from father to son. Many a good artist has been diverted into medicine, or gifted writer into engineer, by the influence, often not active, but made by quiet assumption, brought to bear on the plastic nature of a small boy. He is taught to regard his father's work as something very special, and the family tradition as a sacred heritage, and in the end his power of free choice is hampered, if not taken away entiraly. l Admiration for his father and respect for his profession are in themselves splendid influences in a boy's life. But from the outset it should be understood that the choice of his own life work depends on himself, and that there is not only no obligation but. not even any desire on the part of his parents that he should follow in hig father's- footsteps. CLIO CLUB TO MEET TUESDAY AT POOLS. Mrs. Hardy Poo! will be hostess to Clio club Tuesday evening at her home when the lesson will be led by Mrs. John Shipley. New officers of the club are Mrs.. L. A.
