Sunday Baseball Tho results of yesterday's election do not show: that a majority of Hie people of Mississippi county want Sunday baseball—despite the overwhelming majority in favor of legalwiiiK the sport the vole was too light to permit any such conclusion. The election did demonstrate, however, that a great many ]jcvsons want Sunday ball and that a majority of the others have no> disposition to stand in their way. Within the bounds of public dc- eency and respect for the rights of others an American citizen ought lo be permitted to employ his leisure time in the way that suits him best. The vote Icgiiiiziiig Sunday ball was an endorsement of this proposition. : Two Points Of View Criticism of American institutions from the other side of the ocean is not ahvays -worth listening lo, Kuropean Visitors being • what they are. Hul a ^enxflrk.'rnMc the other day by G. K. Chesterton, the English author and lecturer, as he returned to England after a long tour through the United States, contains something Unit we could mull over a bit without hurling ourselves. "From one end to the other of this magnificent civilization," said Mr. Chesterton, "there is no such tiling as a village. ., \yiien yon enter a little town it is simply an eyesore lo anybody of European tradition or instincts. "The lirst things met are yellow (in advertisements, tin buildings with frameworks of lead and glass, and tin shops—and then, thank God, you arc out of the town." • Obviously, the American small town rubbed Mr. ^Chesterton in the wrong way; and it is ([iiite certain that there is an enormous contrast between the orderly, attractive little rural hamlets of England and the villages of the United Slates. But are things quite as bad as he says? Probably not. Yet there is no sen.<e in denying that he had good grounds for his criticism. Every American motorist can rcmemlwr towns that fall precisely into that classification; towns OUT OUR WAY that come as an mile disappointment to the traveler and that make him want to keep going, as Mr. Chesterton wanted to keep going, in the hope of finding something nicer. jit, has been charged, by foreign crilies, (hat Americans as a people are actually hostile to bi-auty; that they prefer ugliness to charm, and wilfully make their homes and their public buildings displeasing to the eye. Very likely it would be nearer to the truth to say that we are simply careless. It would be fairly easy to remove most of the unpleasant features from the small town landscape, if 11 little lime and money were siwnt on Ihc job. lint usually nobody takes the trouble to start such a movement. Everybody agrees that this, thai or the other thing looks pretty bad—and everybody wails for the other fellow to do something about it. Some of tile trouble, too, is dtio to the fact thai the inhabitant of any town sees more than the visitor, lie is used lo the place. It is the llomu Town, given a beauty it dees not really possess by years of association. He is fond of it, and he treats it as one treats any friend—by turning a blind eye to ils bad spots and by seeing loveliness where no stranger can sec it. So the traveler, parsing through at 30 miles an hour, looks anil says— "What a horrid place!" And the native, coming home after an absence, looks about him, feels a warm glow in his breast at the old, familiar sights, and murmurs that it's tlie most attractive spot in the country. —Bruce Cation.
