"I see Mr. Roosevelt Is afraid that clerks
and others who lead an indoor life will
lose what ho calls their "fighting edge,' "
begins Brightslde as the household adviser
enters to take charge of the evening con
ference. "What worries us indoor ginks Is keep
ing an edge on our safety raaors," retorts
Son, puffing a three-ring Turkish aroma
at his sire.
"In his address he speaks of the soft
lives led by city folk," continued Father,
"saying It unflta them for sterner duties."
"Some of 'em may have It soft, but they
missed your little Willie when they passed
around the feather pillows," Son declares.
"A chap that rides to work every day In
the subway or on the 'L' Is there with the
training and can put over the wallops with

a little 'fighting edge' Just step on a guy's

"He seems to think that barbarians have
the better of us, always being in condition
to go to war," resumes Father.

The Tired Business Man
BY WALTER A. SINCLAIR.
"Why does the secretary of the treasury
want to have different and smaller sized
paper bills?" asked Friend Wife. "Do we
need the change?"
"We'll get the change If we break the
bills," said the Tired Business Man. "Cows
will cease choking' when they reduce the
size of those rolls that are always Vald
to be big enough to choke a cow, and even
calves won't look so knobby Just above
the ankles, where the money slips down.
And it will be quite a hardship for ticket
speculators and shell game men to reduce
the lze of their fingers so as to wrap the
reduced bills around them.
"It certainly looks like thla administra
tion In Its attempt to reduce expenses had
carried it to reducing what we pay expenses
wHh. Maybe It's Just a play by the party
In power to make It seem that we have so
much money that we can't carry It all In
Its present large shape. Or again it might

paying so much for the increased cost of
living if we use smaller sized bills. Maybe
they think one very big BUI In the White
House is worth two In the wallet.
"Secretaries of the treasury always like
to come to the bat with some new and
happy thought to make people talk about
them. Otherwise there Is nothing to their
Job but to look wise and sign the reports
to the president. Not long ago a secretary
was clamoring for elastic currency. Prob
ably some lofty financiers knew what elas
tic currency was, but most of us low brows
thought he meant the kind you could snap
a rubber band around.

"Of course. It would be nice for the
wealthy when they went out with the wife
to buy a $MX hat to be able to unpack a
bill which would literally 'cover the pur- f
chase.' But most of us would have to carry
ours In pill boxes. However, if they are
