the Advancement of Science.
As a means of Improving the heredi

Hays proposed a classification of all
human beings, both as to mental apti

such knowledge as this census would
give, he said, there would develop a
"racial religion," requiring the geneti

to give the genetic or family values of

such as feeble-mindedness or insanity.
By paying attention to genetic ef ef-ficeincy,

the races of the world.
"The proposed plan would somewhat

it would be based on racial efficiency.
The wholesome consideration of gen

Joys and pleasures for some, sadness
and sorrow for others, has come and
gone, and the advent of a new year
has brought lis to another milestone

improvement for 1912.
The loom of life is going steadily
on. Each day's work adds threads to
the web we are weaving. Let us add
many that are bright and golden for
the new year.

too expensive had to offer it up for
auction, when it was knocked down
to the highest bidder, and the money
appropriated by the national treasurer
of the period. Consequently, although
the Romans continued to distribute
their presents in great numbers, they
had to confine their offerings to such
trifles as jars of olives, napkins, jel jellied
