We have all been hurt by
the closing, unexpected as it
came, of the City National 1
Bank in Miami. It is hard,
coming as it does within six
months after the failure of c
the Bank of Bay Biscayne,
upon all the people of this
district especially upon the i
Jewish inhabitants who were 1
proportionately the majority
of the depositors in the closed c
institution. But like good 3
Jews, we must bow and say
"Even this will pass."
We find nothing more ii
splendid than the editorial f
appearing in yesterday's is-
sue of the Miami Herald lo
which we reprint:
People of the stage have a
code of ethics that is design- r
ed to keep them in the good p
graces of the public on which y
they depend for a livelihood
and at the same time enables I
them to assert proudly that I
.they always keep faith with
those who pay money to see
them perform. This code of
ethics is embodied in the idea,
"Let the show go on."
Actors and actresses have
played their roles time and
again when they did not feel
like it. They are subject to
the same emotions as other
individuals and sorrow and
grief come to them along
with all human beings. Death
is no respector of time nor
person and it is not unusual
for comedians to appear in
the glare of the footlights
immediately after receiving
news of misfortune or the
death of one near and dear.
"Let the show go on." The
members of the audience are
not concerned in the personal
affairs of those paid to enter-
tain is up those on the stage
ing about their griefs or mis-
fortunes. So long as the cur-
tain is up those o nthe stage
must do their duty, they
must carry on. And they al-
ways do.
Miami is in the show ousi-
ness. It is expected to enter-
tain and amuse the tens of
thousands who come down
here for rest, relaxation and
rmusement. The visitors care
little or nothing about our
troubles. They left their own
troubles at home, perhaps
more serious troubles than
Miami is encountering now.
They should not be asked to
condole with us or to share
our tribulations.
Miami should take a lesson
from the stage. Let the show
go on!

A certain friend of mine prospered mightily in his bus.
iness and investments. I used to see him often, and it dig.
tressed me to observe that his increase in wealth had ap.
parently added nothing to his peace of mind. He seemed
to be always worried. His health was not too good. With
each added million he developed a new complaint.
The other day I saw him again for the first time in
nearly a year. His eyes shone. He was full of pep and
plans-a wonderful transformation.
"You know, I used to talk about retiring," he said,
"and I had just about made up my mind to do it when the
stock market crashed. Then I discovered that I couldn't
afford to retire.
"I've gone back to work, and it's the greatest tonic I
ever had. I doubt now if I'llever retire. When you come
to think of it," he added, "idleness is just a form of suicide."
The phrase is striking, but the thought which it ex-
presses is not new. Many men have made the same dis-
covery, and usually at the price of unhappiness.
Charles Lamb, when released at last from his drudgery
of desk work at the India office, cried out that he would
not go back to his "prison for ten thousand pounds."
"I am free! Free as air!" he wrote ecstatically to a
friend. "I will live another fifty years. Positively the best
thing a man can do is nothing.
Two years passed. Idleness lost its charm. Time,
which had seemed to pass slowly when he was chained to
a job, now hung around his neck like a millstone. With his
days free for writing he actually wrote less than in the
years when, with all their dull routine, he had been stimu-
lated by daily contact with the active world.
"I assure you no work at all is worse than overwork;
the mind preys on itself-the most unwholesome of food."
So he wrote to the same friend. "I have ceased to care for
almost anything. Never did the waters of heaven pour
down on a forlorn head. What I can do, and overdo, is
to walk. I am a sanguinary murderer of time. But the
oracle is silent." .
Henry Thoreau who saw many things clearly, looked
forward to a time when every man's life would be reason
ably divided between hard work and happy leisure.
"Why should the hen set all day?" he asked. "She ca
lay but one egg, and besides, she will not have picked u
materials for a new one. Those who work much do no
work hard."
Both idleness and unrelieved drudgery are forms-o
suicide. Somewhere between them is a happy median
which is really living.



The high cost of being sick has come to most everyboc
who has left need of the doctor's services within the pa
few years. This sort of "tariff" is very depressing indeed
It seems to burden oppressively the victims, when they a
least fitted to deal with heavy loads.
Nevertheless, our people seem willing always to bi
the "pig in the poke." One notorious quack within ea
radio distance has rolled up over a million dollars in a col
paratively short time, getting well up toward a thousal
dollars as his initial payment in advance, before he touch
the complainant. That looks to me like pretty fancy fe<
when our people complain of the high cost of being sick.
I know of advertising concerns that are in the medic
BUSINESS, that exact two or three hundred dollars in a
vance, and they are usually crowded with suckers who seE
to like the parting with their money.
And, I have met numerous "docks" who look wi
charge never less than five dollars for an interview, a
simply walk away from the brethren who strive for sci(
tific knowledge, and who are devoting midnight hours
study. A wag once said to me, "it's got so you don't ha
to know anything to be a famous doctor."
I hate to think of it as a possible fact. When I see
ordinary masseur, without knowledge of pathology, bactl
biology chemistry or material medical, give him self the title
"doctor" and sally forth to treat the public, demand
and getting much bigger fees than the man who has
in four or more years in the college and university-t
I am inclined to agree with the wag as quoted.
People who keep the army of American quacks rol
in wealth should not complain of the high O of gett
cured. The good physician's equipment 'ostsolYne
education did not float into him on the ti heo wortw
he costs--often very much more. A good d %
worth his hire.

Perhaps America's most wide-
ly-distributed food product is choc-
olate. It was unknown to the civil-
ized world until the Spanish con-
quistadores found the Mexicans
drinking a decoction made from
the cacao bean. The explorers took
the bean and the drink back to
Europe with them.
We use about 150,000,000 lbs.
of chocolate a year, in the form
of candy, flavoring for ice-cream
and soda, and as a drink, which
we call cocoa, although the origin-
al Mexican word was cacao. The
rest of the world uses about as
much as we do.
The food value of chocolate is
high; it is a concentrated energy
producer. The forms in which it
is generally sold, highly sweetened
make it less digestible for persons
who cannot take care of sweets
easily. But for anybody engaged
in active physical work there is
no better stimulant combined with
nourishment than sweetened choc-
While the rest of the country is
recovering its normal tone quite
noticeably, New York City is get-
ting very sorry for itself over the
business depression and unemploy-
ment. Business isn't any worse in
New York than it is anywhere
else, and there are no more un-
employed, proportionately, than in
any other town. But the city news-
papers and the public have just
got around to taking serious notice
and to raising money for the bene-
fit of the unemployed. It has be-
come the fashionable thing for the
smart set to attend football games
for charity, join unemployment
committees and get their names
and pictures in the paper. Several
million dollars has been raised,
with the result that every tramp
and drifter in the country is head-
ing for New York as fastas he can
go, to get some of the easy money
that is being handed out to any-
body who can pull a poor face.
Not that there isn't unemploy-
ment and suffering, too, in New
York. It is mostly in cases where
illness, old age or sheer incompe-
tence is to blame I know of many
casds where people looking for
competent help have been unable
to find any really useful persons
who didn't have a job.
There is something in the idea
of feeding wheat instead of corn
to livestock, according to an ac-
count issued by the Federal Farm
Board of the experiences of many
farmers who have tried it.
Frank Evans of Oklahoma fed
311 hogs on wheat, and found that
400 pounds of wheat made 100
pounds of pork. He figured up
what he got for his wheat thus
converted into pork, and says it
brought him $1.67 a bushel. Other
former who have tried the same
thing report that wheat has
brought them from $1 to $1.50 a
bushel by the same process.
Every innovation of this sort is
a step toward the ultimate solu-
tion of the farm problem.

To most of us a dollar is just a
dollar. To financial experts, a dol-
lar is merely a gauge whereby
commodities are measured. But fi-
nanciers often speak of the dollar
as if it were variable, while com-
modities are stationary. Instead of
saying, for example, that wheat is
cheaper, they will say that the
wheat dollar dollar is higher.
Dr. Andrew A. Bock, famous
statistician, says that the "whole-
sale dollar" has increased about 7
percent and the "cost-ofliving"
dollar about six and half per cent
since the beginning of 1930. That
is merely another way of saying
that wholesale prices are down be-


The -Rev. William E. Barton,
who died the other day, will be
remembered a hundred years from
now not because he was a great
preacher, which he was, but be-
cause he did more than any other
person to dig out all of the facts
about the life of and ancestry of
Abraham Lincoln.
Until Dr. Barton began his re-
search many of the popular beliefs
about Lincoln were pure myth.
His friends had written accounts
of his life which were as false in
many particulars as those written
by enemies. Dr. Barton's several
books revealed Lincoln as he real-
ly was, and settled forever the
question of his ancestry and pater-
While engaged in this work, Dr.
Barton was at the same time pas-
tor of one of the most famous
churches in the country the Oak
Park Congregational, which he
built up into a model for all "in-
stitutional" churches. He was a
great and good man and the fath-
er of a son, Bruce Barton, who is
as famous in his line as the min-
ister was.

it contained its original Jew-
