The people who are scared almost to death for fear that America can't come back are n@t a bit worse scared than were the same type of timid-minded folk in each of these previous panics. But, as we all know, America Most of us are constitutionally un- able to see any defect in those we love. It might be better sometimes if we could. Perhaps if we could an- alyze our children cold-bloodedly we might be able to bolster them with added stren,th. On the other hand, what a blessing it is that we do not always see too well. In cleaning out my desk one day I lan across a phoograph of our first baby', which taken when he was about six weeks old. I remem- ber how proudly we sent it to all our relatives at Christmas time; how positive we were that there had ne- ver been in all history so beautiful a child. Today the picture gives me a fit. It must be my youngster, for my wife is holding it. But instead of the beautiful cherub I remember, what is she holding? Something that looks exactly like a summer squash.

We came back froea that one richer than before, and we did the :o.*. same thing after the crises of 1907 and o 1920.
