tr (THE BOSTON GLOBE THURSDAY. DECEMBER C, 1928 THURSDAY, DEC 6, 1928 The Globe Man's Daily Story If you've been observant during j your recent tripe to New York per-I laps youve noticed, in one of tie taxicabs that meets tie trains st f the Grand Central, neatly framed j little sign that hangs where you can j lead it. f It is that speech of Hamlet which begins, What a piece of work is man! How noble in reason! And its all there, down to the last j line: Man delights not me; no, nor woman neither. ON GETTING EVEN SCENE: cago. Two men A courtroom In Chl-Persons of the Drama: whose families occupy , Bats, one above the other. In a large (tlty apartment block. They are explaining their quarrel to the Judge, i .Which, as told by one of them, runs is follows: j) 'Tour weeks ago, about 1 oclock r, iJCt night, I hears the guy upstairs hammering on the floor. I find out ties laying linoleum. In three nights Sie gets It all down. Then he takes !t all up and begins over again. I bends up and asks why? He says ties laid It wrong. So he goes on paying It wTong all night. Then fee pulls It up again and ditto. Two solid weeks I lie awake watching the plaster come down from the ceiling. Then I gets an Idea. I might as well be laying Unoleum or something myself, as wasting time trying to sleep. So I bringB home some of my tools and tetarts putting down the carpet and things. I admit Im a noisier workman than he is. But I believe its any mans right to use the tools of bis trade laying carpets In his own Bat. A reasonable argument, says the Judge. And what may your trade he? Well, says the man who wanted Jx get even, Im a pneumatic kiv eter operator." The philosophy which stares out rJ from that episode Is tagged with a Jbertaln familiarity for many of us. fa fact, the Idea of getting even i'vlth someone who rufiles ones feelings or shows a spirit of selfish In-I truslon upon ones rights Is a dynasts Idea. Its descent Is traceable In fcuman evolution. True, It thrives today In Its more frank and open forms among children; but how Jinany grownups can look Into their Inlnds and memories without a qualm jjbn this score? The thing lurks out and under cover In the human jnimal, with all the tenacity of a ! primitive Instinct. Indeed, that is 1 about what it amounts to. Trace the idea back. Before long you come upon some signposts which point directly to the tooth-and-claw attitude of the barbarian communities of the human morning. Follow it along. It will lead you onward to those patriarchs of tribal antiquity who exalted It in the slogan: Eye for eye, and tooth for tooth. For it is an Interesting fact that the philosophy which accepts the doctrine of getting even, of taking It out on somebody, has always been strongest among peoples whose social enter-, prise and adaptability among their , fellow men In this world of ours. Is i weakest; and It has always held I diminished or negligible Influence among those societies which have jaarly perceived the validity and usefulness of moderation. Individual self-control, and a social attitude 1 toward the business of . dwelling to- . gcther both within their own com-i-xnunity or State and within the L targer groups of neighboring peoples. The Idea of getting even has thrived most among those who cling 1 to the clan or tribal view of life. It 'has flourished least among those who ; welcome mental freedom aa a civic ! ideal; who are Impelled by a general desire to know nature, experience ; and truth, not as seen through the ! glasses of a parochial self-sufficiency, i ; but as observed through windows large enough to present pictures of t other peoples, customs and philoso-i phles. In essence, the philosophy of get-i ting even Is directly related to the i feud and the vendetta. Both are . characteristic of backward social condition and thought. The weak-1 ness of the whole Idea Is neatly sug-! gested by our Chicago court in- stance; Neither of the protagonists ef grudge was able to visualize the 1 rights of the rest of the nelghbor-i hood, within and near their dwelling. . The type of mind that aspires to get ; even Is always like that For It i la Inescapably a selfish or self-cen- tered mind. Being such, it Ignores the fact which would otherwise loom before It, plain aa a pikestaff: that a moderate use of reason and, if necessary, the invocation of civic authority which is founded on the community rights, would end annoyance speedily and in a civilized manner. The business man who goes home at night soured by an experience In the office, and proceeds to take It out on hla family; the woman who wreaks punishment upon her daily Intimates for something gone wrong during the day, are trying the shifts both should have long ago outgrown. Perhaps It Is a council of perfection to point out that this is very silly. Nevertheless It 1b. Anger, we know now, actually distills a kfcd of poison in ones system. Nursing an unfulfilled grudge is a most deadly and subtle concession to anger. Civility and good manners are not advanced; yet it is precisely upon these that one must depend. It is a far better mark of character to be able to forget it than to bathe ones life in acid rancors. Incidentally, to be able to forget It Is also the best possible Insurance against future trouble, for individuals and societies alike. Uncle Dudley. FOR THE CROWN THE Royal Commission, set up in England by & scratch of the pen of George V, attracts the attention of the world. It has been generally understood that a monarch of England reigned but did not rule; that is, he wag the apparent but not the real head of the Kingdom and of the Empire. There is curiosity aa to why it has been deemed necessary to establish this body to act in the Kings stead while he is prevented by illness from consideration of affairs of State. The commission is composed of three members of the Royal Family: the Queen, the Heir to the Throne and the Duke of Tork. In addition, there is the Archbishop of Canterbury', the Lord Chancellor and Mr Baldwin, the Prime Minister. As he, the only commoner of the group, is the real head of the Government, why was it held necessary for him to have with him five other persons? The answer is that the Crown has an actual function in the British scheme of things, provision for which must be maintained without intermission. When the sovereign becomes permanently Incapacitated or when he or she Is an infant, a regency is established, having a considerable period of service in contemplation. The present arrangement is not called a regency but is termed The Crown In Commission. It works to maintain the British system. There are emergencies in which the Prime Minister must consult the Crown. The commission will protect the Prime Minister from being obliged to act in ways unprecedented. He now has at hand an authorized body with a certain function of restraint. RUM AND BACCY VISITOR to the waterfront put this question to an old salt, What would you do with $1000? Without a moments hesitation the man of the sea replied, Id buy rum and baccy. But what, then demanded the inquisitor, would you do with $1,000,-000? Buy more rum and baccy, was the answer. Many people are similarly minded. When fortune falls Into their laps, they cannot think of much besides gratification of physical desires, although of course they Include among these much besides gin and cigarettes. There is a young teacher who has Just hit upon something different. His name is Louis A. Hazeltine. While at work at Stevens Institute, Hoboken, he Invented an improved radio set which has brought $1,000,000 his way. But he does not propose to put It into rum and baccy." He says that he has always wanted to study more mathematics. He is now going to Indulge this wish. The choice may be Incomprehensible to those wlio have been repelled in early youth by the rigidity of the multiplication table, but the principle is worth attention. Here Is a man who might Increase his million decidedly, but who prefers to have his fun by working in his own way. He has withdrawn from the business where his money was made. He means to devote the rest of his life to an adventure in freedom such as very few of the rest of us so much as dream of. Is he sensible, or are others foolish? EDITORIAL POINTS The first report is that there seems to be no opposition in the Senate to Kelloggs war pact-a sample of what used to be called damning with faint praise. Some lose their registrations because of Imperfect cars, and some who get caught speeding on Commonwealth av, because their cars are too good, find themselves in court. A motorist has a tough time of it. If youve done your Christmas hinting foxily, you added a second choice under the head or if not that. There is humor in the headline whose three decks announce successively Tariff Revision Plans Speeded, Dissatisfied Manufacturers to be Heard at Start of Hearings Jan 7, and Draft of Bill to Begin in February. The headliner may have thought the manufacturers are to be heard as a chorus. Assistant State Forester Galarneau says that petting parties cause many of the worst forest fires at this season. Evidently the petters could give the Boy Scout pointers on firekindling. Joseph Santos of North Easton, having fasted for two days, decided to try & holdup. He pointed his pistol at a woman storekeeper and demanded money. She grabbed an ax and ran him out. Her name was Nonie Murphy. What a chance, a Santos trying to frighten a Murphy! No rum boats are to be found off the New England coast, the patrol reports. But any bootlegger will still be able to furnish you with imported" goods, right up to and including Christmas if you insist. As an example of high consideration, drive down and take a look at the new toll collectors stand on the Dover Point Bridge in New Hampshire. It is in the middle of the road, and diamondshaped, allowing space for automobiles to pass on each side, but keeping them close enough to allow the collector to take the tolls without going out of doors. Just how dangerous hunting may be is shown by the case of Charles B. Chandler of ' Fryeburg, Me, who paid a fine of $200 for shooting a bull moose, which he mistook for a deer at a range of 30 yards! On the other hand, nothing has been seen yet of the man who has given up having an automobile because he lives in too expensive a zone. The infamy of criminals in New York city is illustrated again by the action of five masked hoidup men, each with a revolver who stood six members of a benevolent association committee up against a wall, took from them $750 of the benevolent association's money and their watches, and then tied their trousers into hard knots, so that it took the committee men of the benevolent association until 2 o'clock in the morning to untie the knots so that they could put on the trousers and go to the police station to tell about the robbery.

That ought to keep down the cat population, if the right kittens are saved. Fitchburg picked herself a mayor de carriere, as they say In the diplomatic service. Even the Postoffice in the North Station has got to move, though only over to the east wing. Its old site is going to be out in the street, with the area where old Stack" used to shake em up and pour em out. Representative Brittens attempt at a diplomatic bypass seems to have resulted in an impasse. Gen Sweetser has recommended to the Legislature that the salaries of his assistant and associate commissioners be raised to $6000 a year which may seem to some of the scions like a heap of coals of fire. The aviators supply an idea why not a low celling for orators? WHAT PEOPLE TALK ABOUT Anonymous communications will rweife no attention, nor will any notice be paid those of undue lencth.

At first it was simply a museum but soon dramatic performances were introduced and so great was the . success . of the venture that on Nov 6. 1946. the building on the site of the present Kimball Building was opened. In the Summer of 18SO the interior of the house was rebuilt and tlie seating capacity increased. Although there had been dramatic performances given in halls, the first theatre in Boston was the Federal Street Theatre at the comer of Franklin and Federal sts. opened in 1794. The second theatre was the Haymarket, on Tremont and Boylston sts, opened in 1796. At the time the Boston Museum was opened, the Tremont Theatre and the National Theatre were the theatres of Boston.

It now appears certain that Mr Hoovers itinerary will include a stop in one of the northern ports of Chile, where he will meet representatives of the republic of Bolivia. This Nation, probably the third largest in South America, and the limited BOLIVIA has no seaport. time at the disposal of the Presidentelect makes it improbable that he can take the trip over the Bolivian borders. Bolivia has been called the Tibet of South America. Probably no country outside of Asia has so many high mountains. There are more than a dozen which are approximately four miles in height, and its huge tableland, fully eight times the size of Massachusetts, averages more than 13,000 feet above sea level. Two branches of the Andes wall in this plateau with vast snow-topped ramparts. La Faz, lying in a hollow of the plateau, has been called the highest national capital in the world. It is the principal city of the country and the actual seat of the Government, although the little community of Sucre, with only 30,000 inhabitants, is the legal capital of the country and the seat of the Supreme Court. La Paz Is connected by rail with the seaport of Antofagasta, once a Bolivian city but now belonging to Chile. Three years ago tha work of extending the main line of the Antofagasta & Bolivia Railroad was completed, and much through traffic has been developed between La Paz and Buenos Aires. In Bolivia are the ruins of what some scientists believe may be the oldest clfy In South America, if not in the whole Western Hemisphere. Long before the Inca Empire was founded Its origin had been forgotten. It Is known as Tiahuanco, from a nearby Indian village of that name. For hundreds of years the ruins have been used as quarries, 500 trainloads of cut stone having been used for railroad bridges alone. (Tomorrow: Robinson Crusoes Island) INCREASED AUTO TRAVEL SPREADS SERIOUS DISEASE B y Maynard C. Harding, Infantile paralysis, or poliomyelitis, is an epidemic disease constantly present in some part of the world. It probably has had its home in Northeastern Europe, whence it has swept westward at intervals. For many years we have had epidemics of it at short intervals in various parts of the United States. Due to increased travel by auto between widely separated parts of the country, now amounting to millions of people each year, this disease, as well as many others, is very widespread. In fact it is likely that its presence in so many places will keep down serious epidemics by immunizing the most susceptible children through having WHAT WORD IS THIS? Yesterday' answer: The man wouldn't need an eye glass ribbon with pectacle. , 'j M i -L ; 4 f- 'y4 f A;. -If, K AN IMAGE FROM TIAHUANCO Some of the Indians have taken smaller stones for their own huts. But enough remains to show that the buildings must have been tremendous. Some of the great blocks are as much as 36 feet long by 16 feet wide and 6 feet thick. No such huge stones are found near Tiahu-ancao, and the method by which they were transported is still a puzzle. The outlines of a temple some 455 feet long and 38S feet wide can be traced. Another building, sometimes called a fort, was built in terraces and measured 620 by 450 feet and was at least 50 feet high. Gigantic stone idols have been found, huge monolithic images, nine or 10 feet high. The walls of many of the buildings were elaborately carved. All sorts of theories have , been held from time to time as to city. the people who built this city. A few have even held the belief that some white race, possibly the Phoenicians, once lived here and that the Bolivian plateau may have been the source of the gold of Ophir. More probable theories favor an indigenous civilization, possibly tracing back to Mongolian sources. The enormous mineral deposits are Bolivia's principal source of wealth today. Nearly all known metals are found in Bolivia. There is gold of course, and the silver of Potosi was once world famous. Today the tin mines some of them owned American capitalists, are perhaps the the most interesting things in the plateau. Bolivia produces about a quarter of the total tin output of the 'world. Many of the tin mines are at Potosi. Bolivia is very thinly settled, having about 2,800,000 inhabitants for its 514,000 square miles of territory. The majority of the people are Indians, but there are many whites and half breeds. Amcng the most interesting of the Indian tribes are the Aymaras, who in the days before the Spanish conquest were one of the few races powerful enough to escape subjugation by the Incas. They have many picturesque legends, xmong thm one to the effect that the first people on earth became so wicked that the gods turned them into the stone idols of Tiahuanaco. MD, San Diego, California had it and recovered. Fortunately the percentage of children who are susceptible is low, and of the ones who do take it only one-fourth are left crippled. A diligent search for an effective serum has been carried on for many years. It is generally admitted that the one specific cure is serum from the blood of a person who has recently recovered from the disease. The medical profession in many places is attempting to procure a store of such serum against the hour of need in their communities. It must be on hand ready for use within the first day or two if paralysis is to be prevented. A small quantity of blood should be taken from each convalescent case. It is drawn by a hypodermic needle and is without danger to the child. This article is written as a plea for cooperation in securing this life-saving blood. All parents should request the use of immune serum in their own children if the unfortunate necessity should arise. The Slave Dr Fritz Wittels, the Berlin psychoanalyst, said at a banquet In New York : "Psycho-analysis comes like a joyful boon to your American business man. He above all others needs the spiritual and physicial freedom which psychoanalysis gives. A thin business man worth millions consulted me at Chicago. You haev no hobby, I suppose? I said to him. ( Yes, he said, T have a hobby that Im a slave to. What is it? said I. He gave me a dreadful laugh. ' Fret-work, he said. Work all day, fret all night. Rehoboth Sunday Herald, - A". rf- Decline of Santa Claus :Bjr Robert F. Denvir Jr nHK latest word from the great I city of New York, center of Americas sophistication. Is that th very young set no longer believe in Santa Claus. On first glance that statement does not appear to be cause for alarm. But when the further Information arrives that the department stores in the metropolis are not bothering to hire the usual number of benevolent old gentlemen for the gentle deceit of the young during the weeks preceding Christmas, the story takes on importance. The legend of Santa Claus in America is older than any living American, and certainly those of the so-called j younger generation remember it with ; what little sentiment they have remain- j ing as one of the tender memories of a I somewhat hectic childhood, harassed by bewildering dances for soldiers and sailors and three-minute speeches. This business or believing in Santa Claus and not believing in the quaint old saint has always been a question, usually debated in grammar school yards and nurseries for several weeks before the visit to the department stores in the city. And from the beginning of time there have been iconoclasts, who have delighted to point out flaws in the beautiful story. The Gaia-had, who stood out with eyes flashing to defend the tale learned at his mother's knee was always argued down with inexorable logic on the part of some older chap who had inside information. Like King Arthur, this Gala-had, though defeated, was always loved and respected. Older boys, in deference to the little fellows loyalty, always changed the subject or shut off the iconoclast, while the Crusader rushed off with tears in his eyes to confront mother with the logic of the trouble maker. You were always strengthened In your belief whe non the next day after the battle with the unbelievers mother took you on the car over the Harvard Bridge to th ebig stores, where, after a long trip through crowds of people, you arrived in the toy department. Here mother always saw to it that you had a personal interview with Santa, who in those halcyon days used to write or to pretend to write at least your wants, and if Anna had been a bad girl youd tell Santa what she wanted for fear mother wouldn't bring her in to see him. There were no telephones or radios in every house in those days. Although you never worked up enough courage to do so, you always wanted to pull Santa's whiskers, because you could 8co that they bent back from his face. And when you went home again the thrill usually lasted until Christmas eve. It is a hard thing to look back on the days when you tore down from the attic to the parlor, where, there in all its glory, stood a real Christmas tree. Behind it was a 50-cent hockey stick and real key skates. A little to one side was a shining pair of brown storm shoes with real rawhide lacings and two buckles at the top. If you were a girl there was a real French doll with blue eyes that opened or shut as you picked her up or placed her back in a real go-cart with handles at both ends. If you lived in a real old house as we did there was an open fireplace and your Santa Claus always for purposes of realism scattered some ashes and stepped in them as he came down the chimney. Sometimes your mother grumbled about it. but father was a realist and believed in going the limit. When you looked in the stocking that hung by the edge of the fireplace there was always a large piece of coal and your heart took a sudden bump downward. But your kid sister, who had more faith, would go beyond and pick out a new pencil box or small camera or even a dollar watch. After you had looked them all over carefully you would whoop upstairs again to show them to mother and father. Each article was examined with awe and wonder and no one y.-as slighted. At 9 oclock mother ordered everyone dressed and it was a rush back upstairs again, where there were three or four rows with the pillows until 3'ou heard the pound of fathers foot on the first stair. Then there was the business of getting dressed very hurriedly. Within 15 minutes everyone was downstairs again, all talking at once and eating so fast that mother's new table cloth was in dire danger of being irreparably destroyed. Somehow, it was never spoiled beyond repair. When breakfast was finished every one rushed back again into the parlor, where Aunt Mary or Agnes were playing with Annas doll or pa was running Phils train of cars or blowing up Charles football. Usually before the day was over someone had broken the doils eyes by making her go to sleep too often or else grandpa had stepped on Phil's tracks and bent them. In the evening the lights were put out and eJl t around the tree. A candle would b lit in the front window and you would watch it burn slowly until 9 oclock. Then the whole family would sing Silent Night and everybody would be ordered to bed. After everybody had been kissed all round and another look at the tree had been taken, quiet would settle over the house. That, of course, happened some time ago. Perhaps home life has changed some since then. But to do away with Santa Claus would be to do away with Christmas. For those . who can still sit and dream before a dark green tree during the few short minutes of twilight on Christmas night there is always a Santa Claus, even if we see him through a film of reminiscence. poems mum REAtm .

It Is better to follow his advice than to Ignore It. If offended he would in all likelihood refuse you further market forecasts. Indian Cultivating Is, as you rrobably know, a large philanthropic corporation devoted to the work of refining Indians. There were more unrefined Indians in this country at the close of business Oct l3t than there were for the previous year, and this company, already taxed to capacity, has enough unfilled orders to keep it busy refining Indians for the next 25 years.

In New York Society NEW YORK, Dec 5-The Grand Jury having Issued a blanket Indictment covering the four gent accused of being mixed up in th Rothstein tragedy, police are now busy addressing engraved invitations to the three men not yet under arrest to drop in any evening next week for dinner and bridge. The names of Unly two have been made public. They are John Doe, also known as Heavy Doe, and Richard Roe, brother of Shad Roe, a former Follies girl, now in the lisping pictures. Richard is the youngest of a family of 18 children. The first 17 Roes were sold out eight weeks in advance. Jane Doe. a former Follies girl, haa been definitely eliminated from the case, though she w-as seen on Lexington av, near 52d st. In the late afternoon of Oct 29, and it is known that A.

It was revealed last night that when the Police Department first invited George McManus to surrender, the comic artist of the same name thought they were referring to him and said with a groan, Well, the Jiggs up! Comic artists are believed to be in constant fear of arrest on a charge of vagrancy. The fact that four men were indicted instead of three came as a surprise, as only three glasses were found in the room where the shooting is supposed to have occurred. It is obvious that one of the men does not drink, which would seem to narrow the search down to President Coolidge, though there is a possibility of its being a fellow temporarily afflicted with lockjaw. Fans around town have reached the WHATS WHAT r HELEN DECIE iWtut IV Taj Abitluttly Ncffbiu! A great many Christmas anxieties concerning the selection of gifts might be eliminated If the prospective purchasers would take the trouble to eliminate from their lists alt the names of those to whom presents need not often, should not be sent. For instance, at this time of tho year young girls, and even middle-aged spinsters and widows, who should know better, write to ask what sort of Christmas gift ought to be given to a certain boy or man. One answer fits every question of that type. A girl or woman should not send presents at Christmas time, or at any other time, to a man who is not related or affianced to her. Of course, exceptions may be made In the case of old family friends, or of dependents. Of late years the tendency to restore Christmas to its old-time character of a family feast has been emphasized by a disinclination to make any gifts outside of the circle of relationship. This tendency serves to double and quadruple the number of Christmas cards sent to the ouUr ring of rnrelated friends. (Copyright by Publie ledger.) Sufficient Incentive lice Why did you marry Dick?
