No pnr. lookins: ovrr a group pireuro of Black River Acftdrmy pupils In those day;;, would have picked the silent CoolidKC boy'.13 ft future occupant of the White House. Like* hr. in today's picture there may 1*5 roncr.-ilcd r-omr youngster who will rvrnhinliy ri.-e to n place of honor, fame and power, And there is no way on earth of telling Just tvliich one it may br. Wr'rp very proud, and rightly io. that any American boy. no mutter how l-.umblc his birth, may n.-'pire to tho highest office in the nation. But that Isn't, the point. The point Is that we never can Ull in advance where the light of greatness is going to burst forth. At this moment there is. jomewhere In tho country, a chubby lad in romjver suit who will, feme day, live in the Wlut- House and rulo the nation. For all you know he may be thq noisy little nuisance who lives next door. Or —now don't blush—he may be your own son. Only one thing is certain about him; nobody has the least suspicion of his lofty destiny. That is the way it is all through life. A child, and a grown man likewise, has infinite possibilities. You never know what lies under tho surface. You may know a man for years, and think him quite undistinguished and ordinary. Then some unexpected crisis comes to test him; and you discover, to your surprise, that he is a man of rare nobility and courage. HOT - you • never can tell about people, any more than you can tell about children. They are often a great deal finer, wiser and braver than you suspected. The War and Tropical Disease As the World war recedes farther Into history, it is interesting to note that In some ways this great tragedy had what we might c«TI by-products ol inestimable value to humanity. The impetus which the war gave aviation is well known. The art of building and flying planes made_Jar greater -advance* than u would have in an equal period of l>eace. Now comes a health magazine to remark that the development of tropical medicine was aided more by the war than by any other event in world history. Dysentery in Egypt and Gaiiipoli. malaria in Salonika, beri-beri in Mesopotamia and-scurvy and sleeping sickness in East Africa demanded the attention of army medical authorities—and got it. Research work was done that might otherwise have had to wail many yours A S a retu'.t, doctors know much more about fighting the.-,o diseases than they gyer knew bfitoi^ Sleeping During Sermons Why do people go to sleep In churches? The problem probably is as oUJ ac Christianity itself. In Colonial days it was solved by leaving deacons prowl up and down ihe able* with long, knobbed sticks, with which they tapped, aharply, the heads of all who doz*d. Dr. Edmund Jacobton of tlie University pf Chicago has studied the question and thinks he knows the answer. Complete wu*» polar relaxation, he says, brings with it relaxation of the thinking puwere. 'Die own Who slumps down in his seat, inert and motionless as possible, cannot £e«n his senses jalert. Consequently lie l»Us to > pn the sermon, and goes to deep.
