Since the war over-all finer consumption has been at a record high. This is a violation of Individual •ights. A person is as legally free o be disorderly as he Is to be neat, o long as he doesn't infringe on he liberty of others. For my part, I can see more ad- 'antnges in being disorderly than n being neat. Neatness isn't al- vays a virtue. Most people aren't leat because they really want M be—they just can't help it. • ,Many neat people have a restless lassion to put everything in pigeon- loles. They believe there is a plnce or everything and everything nould be in its place. They feel hat life is like a bingo game/ they keep putting the 'right but- ons on the right numbers—bingo! The trouble with this theory is Hie doesn't operate that wny. To get the most out of living you have to be a connoisseur of chaos as well as an advocate of order. There are some situations and experiences you can't solve with a platitude or tag with a label. They don't fit into patterns, and when a neat person is faced with such a situation he is defeated by It—and sometimes destroyed by It. Life has a wonderful, sprawling aimless quality that only a disorderly person can appreciate. Take such common things as thunder and lighlning. They tend to make a neat person nervous, as he hates to see the sky disrupted. But a gnad, rousing thunderstorm is a source of poetic Joy to the disorderly soul. It brings out the best In him.

The closer the neat man comes to his goal—that is, the more he catalogs his dally life-the more bored he is likely to become. The disorderly man can never become too bored because he never knows what will happen to him next. When the neat man goes to his desk to get out a letter, he knows in dreary certainty just where he will find It. It is a dull routine. To the disorderly person, however, looking for a letter in the mare's nest atop his desk Is a real adventure. Gingerly, he pokes at the layers of debris that resemble the leaning Tower of Pisa. He paws through old letters and re-reads them. He PAGE FIVE •"*;"""&&Y/' '1 • v" -r>!^&r:.1s / ' f?*, t ,f- #*£>%• ,/, ' ' " <,\t ;;*•. •-•,-'-; tt&y •."•' '- •' vt K - " ^,.' X J •"'"*''; ' ',,*^.

He has learned nothing. I once knew a lady whose secret oy was going; through her husband's pockets at night. But she married a neat man. After ten ^ears of utter misery, however he divorced him, explaining: 'He was no fun to live with. Year Her year I found exactly the same hings in his pockets." Later she married a thoroughly isordcrly man whose pockets re- embled a department store hit by a hurricane. "I never knew life could be so xciling," she said, and they lived applly ever after. Perhaps (hat is why neat men re so jealous of disorderly men. They know women never find them ull. owl-Breeding Farm Opened in Indochina HUE, Vietnam.
