STATES HELP DISABLED MEN
Louisiana and Texas Are Prominent
in the Work of Assisting the
Much encouragement has come to
the district officers of the federal
board for vocational education, as lo-
cal interest has been displayed in the
work of re-education for disabled sol-
diers. The building in which men in
“tryout” courses are taught at Tulane
university was donated for the pur-
pose. It is a modern, up-to-date build-
ing, spacious enough to accomodate
the men who will need this type of
training in this district. The shops at
Tulane university will still be utilized,
as will the automobile instruction,
and related subjects in English and
in simple arthmetic will be given in
this building. In addition, it may be
used as a social center for the men.
An organization has been perfected
among the disabled men in training,
and other social organizations in the
city have shown interest in planning
entertainment for them. A splendid
spirit has developed among the men
and they seem much interested ia
A similarly satisfactory arrange-
ment has been made in Texas at the
Grubb school. Ten thousand dollars
have been appropriated by the state
for use in this school in connection
with the work done by the board. The
school receives pupils at any time, and
no tuition is charged. Barracks are
being built by the authorities to house
the men, and a special mess hall is
being prepared for them.
DEGENERACY DUE TO WEALTH
People of Sybaris Allowed Their Char-
acter to Be Sapped by Love
The present meaning of the word
sybarite is a person devoted to luxury
and pleasure. It is derived from the
ancient city of Sybaris, situated in
southern Italy near to the shores of
the Gulf of Taranto. It was founded
by the Greeks 720 B. C. and became
very powerful. In the days of Its
opulence it was ruler over four nations
with their 25 towns and could
raise an army of 300,000 men and
equip them well for the field. The
walls surrounding the city were said
to extend six miles and the suburbs
covered an area of seven miles. It
was the old story, however, for as the
city grew in wealth its people degen-
erated and became noted for eirem-
inacy and self-indulgence, and it is
told of them that no trade that made
a noise was allowed within the city
limits. Seneca tells the story that one
of the Sybarites complained that he
had not rested comfortably during the
whole night, and upon being asked
why, he stated fhat he had found a
rose leaf doubled up under his pil-
low, which had hurt him paln-
fully. Thus it is easy to see how the
word sybarite has been bestowed upon
one who lives for pleasure and self-
A prohibitionist said at a dinner:
“Booze spoils everything. Yes, it
“Pwo local teams in a small tow
once agreed to play a match game,
and the proprietor of the Red Dog
saloon took the team he favored out-
side and said: ;
“Boys, for every run you make to-
day T'll give you a keg of beer.
“By a curious coincidence the pro-
prietor of the Tin Can saloon made
an exactly similar speech to the other
team. And what was the result?
“The result, gentlemen, was that the
two saloonkeépers rushed frantically
out on the diamond in the sixth
inning and said the game must be
stopped at once. The score stood at
59 'to 57.” i

Wisdom of Betty.
We had a family picnic. Whea we
had eaten our supper we sauntered
slowly out of the park toward the
car line. Suddenly, Betty turned and
ran quickly back toward the spot
where we had eaten.
“Betty, come quick,” said mother.
Betty ran faster, without any ex-
cuse for her conduct.
“What are you going back for?
Why don’t you come when I call?”
cried mother to Betty's retreating
«Just a minute, mother,” replied
Betty. “I want to get my gum. 1

Files Imprisoned in Amber.
The proverbial “fly in amber” is
strikingly exemplified in a collection
of red amber from Burma recently pre-
sented to the British museum. The am-
ber is unusually rich in insects, includ-
ing, according to an English authority,
who has examined the material, thir-
ty-one new species, of which five are
types of new genera. Most of these
are found in a block of amber rather
larger than a man’s fist. This has been
eut into slices about half an inch thick.
Nearly every large order of insect is
represented with the exception of ants.
