No Foundation
For Gloom Of
Business Men
Such ia Declaration of Mer
chant Introducer of Amer
ican Department Stores '
In England.
Harry Gordon Selfridge, who mas
tered the fcience and philosophy of
successful department store nian
tgement in two of the great depart
ment stores in Chicago and who
afterwards taught London that
department store directed upon th-.1
American plan could succeed as well
n Great Britain as in the United
States, has been for a short time in
.his country now expecting speedily
!o return to London. He has had
many informal conversations with
business men, especially those en
gaged in international trade. Every
thing that he has learned has forti
fied his opinion that in some respects
business men are viewing trade con
ditions with too much apprehension.
He believes in looking upon the
bright side, being careful, however,
'o temper opinions with sound judg
ment. Faith in Britain.
This view he put before the Amer
ican Manufacturers' Export associa
tion, of which hewas the' guest at a
luncheon, a few days ago. He urged
that unreasonable apprehension be
avoided and that business should
take a less serious view, meaning by
that a less apprehensive view, of the
situation than some business lead
ers have been accustomed to do.
"" Mr. Selfridge is not alone in his
opinion that British conservatism
and tenacity will bring that country
to a normal condition more quickly
than some of the other European
nations will find themselves in a
stabilized condition. But Mr. Self
ridge is apparently of the opinion
that all of the nations will, if there
be patience and the granting of
reasonable aid find themselves in a
tiormal condition sooner than many
nave predicted would be possiW.
He did not spread abroad (iermnn pro
paganda when hp SHld that Germany will
soon be competing with other nations In
the markets of the world. Tor ho spoke
as an Individual who had formed his
own opinion. Thin Is as It should be.
In his view, because In that way alone
-an liermany meet with full rayments
tneNreparntlon which Is demanded of her.
Voices Hlmilar Thought.
The opinions thus oprnfed by this
merchants, now one of the greatest of
world merchant. Is In complete sympathy
with opinions which are held hv many
of, our Industrial leaders and also some
of the financial leaders. Charles M.
Schwab within an hour or two after his
return from Europe voiced a similar
thought. Judge tSary just before he start
ed upon his vacation spoke in encourag
ing words to his friends. President Hard
ing received information of this kind a
few days ago from business leaders. They
are, however, anxious that the Interna
tional political difficulties be untangled,
believing also that if from no loftter mo
tive certainly self-interest will compel an
adjustment of International politics even
though these now appear to have created
something like a deadlock.
The Allies' Debt.
One of the first of the methods which
miixt be taken to restore International
politics to a healthful condition Is the
permanent handling of the debt of the
allies to the United States. Intimations
come .from. Washington that the secretary
of the treasury, Mr. Mellon, backed by
the-authority given to him by congress, I
will before the summer endsjiave com
pleted negotiations with representatives of
the allies, which will result in the elim
inating of this debt which ia now In
the air so to speak, from any unfavor
able Influence upon international finance.
Mr. Selfridge stated emphatically that
not In all reat Britain Is there an in
telligent person so far a he knew who
advocated the cancellation by the United
States of Great Britain's debt to this
To Whom the World Looks.
Sir Philip Olbbs, who was the guest on
the eve of his departure for Europe of
the Allied Loyalty league, said to the 1.000
nun and women who were his hosts that
the world look to the United States for
the formation of a program for establish
ing a permanent world peace. He might
have added that even now the world Is
not looking In vain. For the United
States Is In many ways aiding the world
In its industries. Its agriculture and Its
commerce. If there could be grouped a
statement of all tha,t the United States Is
doing and la about to do In this way a
long.chapter would be needed to print It.
Much of It la silent or at least unpub
lished aid. - It la In progress all the time.
A goodv illustration of this will be fm'
nished by the meeting which Is to take
place at Cleveland In the first week of
May of the foreign trade council. At
least an entire day and perhaps a longer
tlijre will be devoted exclusively to a dis
cussion of financing foreign trade. Much
financing of this kind Is now In pro
gress, although the story of it Is not pub
licly told and much more Is needed.
The Farm Loan Act.
Now that by the decision of the su
preme court that the farm loan act stands
the test of constitutional scrutiny and
that the securities issued by the Institu
tions which the act authorizes are not
subject to the tax collector either federal
or state, M e are likely to see very Im
portant agricultural developments In this
ountry. For the act will make It pos
sible for persons who are owners, or de
sire t become owners of farm lands to
borrow money conveniently and at reason
able rates on the security of farm mort
gages. This ta regarded as a long step
in the direction of co-operative agricul
tural7 banking. Confidence ta expressed
that It will- meet with like success in the
United States, which co-opeTatlve agri
cultural banking and agricultural co-operation
have nipt with in Europe.
Nothing Alarming.
Many persons have looked with some
apprehension upon the decline now re
ported In the volume of bank clearing
throughout the country. They have pre
sumed that this Indicate a heavy falling
off In business. Yet this is a view not to
be justified. In fact the statistics are not
so unfavorable as a rapid reading of
them would suggest Excellent authority
in New York said this morning that the
volume of bank clearings properly Inter
preted, Indicates that the physical total
of business transactions has held up re
markably well in view of the decline In
the general wholesale price level of
nearly So per cent from a year ago.
Marine Engineers Call -Off

New York, March 25. The coast
wise strike of marine enginccrs'and

Don's Trade Review.
New York. March !5. Dun's tomorrow
will eeyi
"After practically a year of liquidation
and deflation, new forces are now making
gradual business recuperation. Recovery
has not yet extended to all lines, but en.
couraging Indications are increasing In
number. Although some of the hopeful
signs partly result from- the Influence of
special demands, such as the Easter requirements,-
the favorable features are also
beginning to assume characteristics ol per
manenoy. The rapid crop advancement,
the relaxation from monentary tension, and
the greater stability of financial markets
promote a better feeling, while the trend
toward resumption of building activity ts
a significant development Reflecting the
latter movement, buying of steel has
gained a little and the lumber Industry, es
pecially In the Pacific northwest, is ex
periencing some revival."

Cattle Extreme dullness was the out
standing feature in the cattle trade Fri
day, prices were weak to a quarter lower
than Thursday ana anywnere irom uutBiouo
lower than a week ago. Receipts were
comparatively light, about 1,600 head, and
receipts for the week fully 8,000 lighter
than a week ago or a year ago. But
there was no urgency to the demand from
any quarter and ail classes of buyers were
extremely bearish In their views owlnif
to the bad reports from eastern beef
markets. Best of the beet steers sold
around 18.75 S 9.00, and tone to the market
was very weak throughout. Stockers ami
feeders which have held steady practically
all week showed uneven declines today and
business was extremely dreggy.

Chicago, March 25. All grain markets
the world over were closed today in ob
servance of Good Friday. American mar
kets will bo open tomorrow, but foreign
markets will be closed until next Tuesday.
There has been an active evening up
of trade In all grains, and as a result
of the recent decline, futures have been
well liquidated and traders with largo
profits have. In most instances, - taken
them. While the speculative situation la
weak as reflected by the declines of 25c
In wheat futures the last 2 weeks, there
Is a feeling among many operators that
there has been enough decline. For a
few days at least, there Is nothing In
sfght on which to base large operations
for a decided upturn, although a fair
rally Is due.
It Is the belief of the trade that should
serious damage come to the winter wheat
crop it would change the market's position
and create more confident buying. At
present buyers lack pronounced confidence
while short sellers are atrresslve on bulges.
The disposition Is to go alow In selling
for a few days which mlgjit bring a rally.

vanced particularly, although the mar
ket is steadier.
"The foreign markets have receded
everywhere, wijji American buying very
limited in the foreign primary markets,
although buj'ing of wool tops continues in

Your Face and What It Tells
. r
What Types Should Enter Professions of Medi
cine, Law, Engineering and Journalism. High
Mentality Often Needs Re-enforcement.
THE professional field in Oma
ha is most attractive in its re
wards for the person who is pre
dominantly mental in structure, yet
correctly balanced. Purely mental
people are handicapped from some
professions by the fact their physical
endurance does not correspond to
the demands of their ambition and
energy, nor to the demands of the
professions where there are occa
sions of stress -and strain.
A doctor, when his practice is
heavy, or when he ha to fight epi
demics, must forget ihere are such
things as fatigue barriers to dull
his ability. He must stay awake
days at a stretch, and draw heavily
on his reserves of energy. The
purely mental type does not have
this necessary amount of potential
physical energy, as have the more
vital or motive structures.
Mental Type Needs Rest
I analyzed a young man just en
tering college the first of this year.
He was desirous of entering medi
cine, but I advised dentistry instead.
There he would have the same in
terest in alleviating and correcting
human ills, yet the regular hours
would give opportunity for recupera
tion needed by his purely mental
type of structure.
The ideal physician type is ihe
good-sized, square-headed man with
Illinois Solons Will
Pfrbe "Building Trust"
Chicago, March 25. An investiga
tion of the housing situation in Chi
cago with the view of ascertaining
if a "building trust" 'had restricted
activities was started here todajr
when the members of the Illinois
legislative commission went into ex
ecutive session.
"We expect to go into every phase
of alleged combinations among
building material manufacturers and
labor leaders and make this investi
gation as thorough as possible," said
Senator John Dailey, chairman. "We
expect to obtain- results."
A number of labor representatives
are expected to be heard during the
inquiry. ,
The commission has been given al
most unlimited powers.

(There are exceptions, of course.
Many too purely mental structured
men go into medicine, and they make
good, too. But they do so at a ter
rible cost to themselves in nervous
wastage and premature death. Ask
doctors themselves hCw thousands
of fine-grained, high-idealcd men sub
stitute stimulants for real energy.
. Other Professions.
. For the law, the person of this
type must absolutely have keen per
ceptive powers; he must have a good
development of reasoning powers;
and he must be naturally cambative
and aggressive.
Engineering offers its best oppor
tunities to the" more purely motive
type, showing more mechanical char
acteristics than the 4ther professions
When the mental motive type, with
especially quick perceptive develop-
jnent, is combined with easy natural
expression, then you have the ideal
journalistic type. All the aggressive
ness of the lawyer, all the nervous
energy of the doctor; all the reason
ing power of a jurist, all possible
mental and structural qualities tend
ing to a 100 per cent alertness are
desirable for an ideal journalist.

Mr. Steffen: The best way to break
into the newspaper game Is to serve a
practical apprenticeship as a "cub" re
porter on a dally in the town or city
where you live. There are- courres In
Journalism In Omaha, and one or two
extension courses that are reliable; but,
after all, they are only theory, and each
newspaper has. a different ' policy. The
best way to be a newspaper man Is to
"be one.
