CHESED SHEL EMES
We have just come from a
meeting of this splendid or-
nization where the issue
which will determine the very
istence of this body was ex-
tedly and bitterly discussed.
e are charitable enough to

derlaid the arguments pre-

This Chesed Shel Emes was

evening the existence of
retain ills which had crop-

y of Miami. The unfortun-
e poor who became bereav-
were to be treated in a
manner becoming true Jews;
ley were to be given the
e attention that a man of
Leans would receive.
And so this organization
prospered. It did the work of
percy for which it had been
tablished. Regardless of
whether we liked the officers,
eir methods, or the manner
which the business of the
ganization was conducted,
e must admit that the poor
ere taken care of.

PLENTY OF KNOWLEDGE BUT NO EDUCATION
A man asked me the other day what courses I had
studied in college had been most helpful.
I answered, "Greek and mathematics."
He said it sounded like a silly answer. "You are in the
advertising business. What do Greek and mathematics have
to do with advertising?"
Of course they have nothing to do directly with adver-
tising, or with modern banking or the law, or any of the
other occupations by which I might have chosen to earn a
Yet Greek and mathematics have this one thing in com-
mon-each of them compels the mind to attack a difficult
problem and to think its way through to a solution. That
is mental discipline; that is development, in the same sense
that hard physical exercise develops the muscles. That, in
a large degree, is education.
There is more false and fuzzy thinking about education
than about almost any other important subject. We have
been in an age when the whole emphasis of school and col-
lege has been placed on "learning things", on "practical
training", on "giving the boys and girls equipment for daily
The result of this program, in many instances, is not
encouraging. Young people graduate into life with a mass
of unassimilated and more or less inaccurate facts, but with
no real mental drill, and no philosophy.
In one of his finest passages Cardinal Newman describes
an educated man as one who "has the repose of mind which
lives in itself, while it lives in the world, and which has re-
sources for its happiness at home when it cannot go abroad.
He has a gift which serves him in public and supports him
in retirement, without which good fortune is but vulgar
and with which failure and disappointment have a charm."
And in another place he defines education as "the pre-
paration for knowledge."
If all educators could agree upon that definition, it
would mean much progress. Then we should have college
graduates whose minds are prepared, rather than graduates
whose minds are merely stuffed.
Too many graduates at present have plenty of know-
ledge but no education.
JOhN JOSEPH GAINESM.D.
Yesterday I performed a minor operation for a patient
who had been taking his favorite brand of pills for some
twenty years, and who had believed that he could not live
without them; and these same little demons had slowly but
surely led him into a condition which placed him on the ope-
rating-table, and brought the order for him to abandon their
use for all future time.
At first-twenty years ago-a simple case of consti-
pation, by reason of a neglected bowel. He was a young
farmer; the vocation of all that should stand for opportunity
Iin perfect health. But, he kept on neglecting the bowel, and
calling to his aid the popular brand of pills that he has kept
up using to the present time,-and growing worse slowly,
all the time, heaping unto himself a lot of grief. He just.
hadn't had time to attend to that very important function,
the emptying of the bowel by natural methods.
The pills contained very positive intestinal irritants,
aloes being a prominent in rent; a high-powered condi-
ment lent heat and stimulation to the almost exhausted
bowel. Other atrocities helped make trouble, though a-

of the Workmens' Circle last
Thursday night at the Beth

Yiddish and Russian folk
songs were delighted to'hear
the old melodies as interpre-

of. New York city. Particular-
ly impressive- was her rendi-

though she did not do as well
in the:rendition-of. songs such
as "Kaddish." Of course, a

this- character. It is by means
of such events that Miami's
interest in Yiddish literature
and art will be kept alive.
