A FRIEND said to me the other day that he wished it was possible to go back two hundred years and scrap all advances made since then with the exception of plumbing and drainage. Most of us are assailed by similar desires because we consider life far too complex and it at times “gets us down.” In times of peace a walk in the country, or a talk with a good friend is usually sufficient to lift us out of this mood. In the midst of a war the position is vastly different.
