Berlin, Msrch-14. Many Ameri
cans and other foreigner visiting the
big exposition at Leipzig get an er
roneous impression of German busi
ness conditions, according to Itfe J.
Stern of New York, who for several
weeks has been studying the situa
"Apparently the exposition is a
big success, Stern said. "There
is an increase in the number of ex
hibitors, but mostly they are middle
men. There is a tremendous hus
tling and bustling in the foreigrfbuy
ing, but in reality the buying is
nothing because of conditions. This
is the story: The exhibitor first
demands the inquirers' nationality.
Then he fixes a price according to
the rate cf exchange of that country
in conformity with the government
plan for world prices on everything
allowed to be exported..
"On this basis, the prices .are
high, but if the buyer still wants to
order the exhibitor discloses the
complete ridiculousness of the situa
tion, fie says he will accept the
order, but will not fix a delivery price
or date of delivery, and finally will
not even bind himself to deliver at
all. This attitude can be under
stood, because all costs, such as
labor, materials, transportation and
taxes, are uncertain even for a
month ahead, but you can't expect
a buyer to sign a 'contract entirely

Shipping Board Steamer
Is Abandoned by Crew
Southampton, N. Y., March 14.
The Shipping Board steamship Lake
Deval, aground on the Long Island
coast near here, was abandoned Sat
urday night by the captain and crew
of 31 men, who were brought ashore
in a breeches buoy. The rough sea
made launching of lifeboats impos
sible. The steamship had been washed
in by a heavy surf over the outer
bar and was hard and fast in the
sands close to shore. After the
men had landed, the wind .shifted
and calmed the sea. It was hoped to
save the ship. . .

Newsboy Missing From
Home Since Last Tuesday
Harry Silver, 15-year-old news
boy, 2318 Charles street, has been
missing from his home since last
Tuesday. His parents have asked
the aid of police in attempting to lo
cate the boy.
He left his home in the morning
to go to school, but failed to report.
Young Silver is of slender build,
dark coniplcxioned and was dressed
in a dark suit.
The PLAPAO-PAD is made of a
strong, flexible material, "E," which
is designed to conform to the move
ments of the body and be perfectly
comfortable to wear. The inside sur
face, "V," is adhesive similar to an
adhesive plaster, to prevent the pad
from shifting and getting out of
place. . ...
"A" is the enlarged end of the
PLAPAO-PAD, which overlies the
atrophied and weakened muscles to
keep them from giving away further.
B" is the Pad, to be applied in such
a way that.it blocks up the hernial
orifice, and .tends to prevent the con
tents of the abdomen from protrud
ing. Within the Pad is a reservoir,
in which is placed a wonderfulab
sorbent. astringent medication, whea
warmed by the heat of the body, it
becomes soluble and escapes through
the small opening marked "C" and t
absorbed through the pores of the
skin to strengthen the weakened
muscles and effect a closure of the
openings. "F" Is the long end of the
PLAPAO-PAD, which is to be plas
tered over the hipbone to give so

Efficient Foundation Stones
By CARL E. ROSENBERG,
Chairman International Association 'of Rotary Clubs
Committee on Education.
Once upon a time there was a Merchant a Mer
chant of the usual kind. This Merchant had a Son. The ;
Son, however, was of the unusual kind. One day the
Son went to his father, and said :
"Dad, -I'm getting tired of this town, and I'm about
disgusted with this business. I've been working for you '.
for some time, m fact, ever since I left high school, and ;
I've come to the conclusion that this little old town and i
your moth-eaten business are just a little bit too small ;
for me, and much too slow, so I'm going to move.
"Oh, I've thought about this for a long time, and :
pretty carefully, too, and I've decided to leave town. No,
I don't know just where I'm going, or when I'm coming ',
back, but some day, Dad, I hope to come back.
"In the meantime, Dad, I want you to promise me
something you'll promise me, won't you? I'm going
to be very busy trying to make good and if it's just
the same to you, I'm not going to write to you unless I
need you very much. And don't you write to me either,
Dad, unless, of course, something goes wrong at -Home,
or you need me in the Business. You understand, don't
you, Dad?" .
It is needless to go into details. The Son left the
Father in a very much surprised and thoughtful state of
It didn't take long for 10 years to go by, and in the
meantime the Son had gone to the Big City, engaged in
all kinds of work, from swamper on a wagon to a high
executive position, and finally became an active member
of Civic Organizations and Club Work in general.
After he felt that he had accomplished something
Real and Worth While, he decided to go Home and show
Dad the success he had won for Himself; and the first
thing you know he was on a Train speeding West, and
arrived at his Former Home.
The train hadn't stopped before he was off the plat
fonn, and on a dead run to his Father's store. But in
place of running into the old, musty, unkempt-appearing
sort of a building front, he was amazed to find in its place
a six-story, white-tile, modern Class-A building. When
he tried to open the door, he was surprised to find a boy
at the other side to pull it open for him.
He was dazed. He couldn't understand it all.
After a fond embrace, congratulations, and a lot of
wild and loose talk, both by the Father and Son, the Fa--ther
said, "Well, now let's not talk any more about this ;
I Won't tell you a thing about it, but let's go Home. I'll
have my car brought around, and tonight, after dinner,
you and 1 are going to talk things over." And they did.
The Father said :
"You know, my boy, that was an awful 'kick in the
shins' you gave me about 10 years ago, when you said
that you" were tired of my old ramshackle, moth-eaten,
hole-in-the-wall that I called a Business.
"I worked hard to build up my business, but you got
me to thinking, and I did some real hard and, I think,
yes, I know, I did some real Constructive Thinking. I
got to chasing myself around, mentally, trying to find
myself, and one, day I did.
"Do you "know what it was I had to find out first
of all, Boy? I had to learn that I was engaged in a
worthy vocation. In other words, I had to know that my
business was a Community Benefit. I also began to ap
preciate that this community looked upon me to supply
it with the goods that the World had to offer for the
Everyday Needs of the People.
"You see, I got to thinking along those lines, and I
came to the conclusion that if Mine was a Worthy Voca
tion, I really ought to love my work. After I found that
my Vocation was Worthy, I really did love my work,
and did appreciate that my business was an Opportunity
to serve Society, and to be a Benefit to the Community.
"I never really noticed that I was a 'Celluloid
Collar Dub that my clothes were a bit mussed up ; in
fact, I noticed a little bit of egg on the lapel of my coat.
i ien inai i wasn't taking quite as good care of myself
as I should. Possibly a few more Baths a week wouldn't
have done any harm. I noticed that my shoes weren't
"Another thing I found in my Inventory of Self-Improvement
you .know, what a great fellow I was for
talking politics and finding fault with anybody and every
body who tried to do anything well, I jacked myself
up one day and found that I wasn't voting as often as I
should. Fine American citizen I was, wasn't I?
"Remember how I used to find fault with things
around town because they weren't progressive, and we
were not doing things? Well, I really never did bring
the Message Home to Myself, until one day I woke up
and found out that I. wasn't a member of the Chamber
of Commerce. But I am now. you bet!
"My boy, after I got to sprucing up, and looking
really like somebody, a sudden desire came to me in the
way of ambition. There came to me the ambition to suc
ceed. No, not only for the profit in fact, the matter
of profit didn't enter into the feeling at all. I felt the
responsibility that My Business was a Community Repre
sentative, therefore it was my duty to make it success
