0f Sood (Banners •-:[ This essay was written in imitation of Francis Bacon. p- ■’HE MATTER of good manners might, upon first consideration, seem too trivial for the serious thoughts of a reflecting mind. It often appears as a veneer that hides the true quality of the heart beneath, or as a defrauder’s wax to conceal and disguise the broken or worn parts. Again it is like smoke that would appear to give evidence of great flames when in reality only a few smothered coals exist. But these criticisms apply only when the manners are affected by a thoughtless one who wishes to push himself and to make a good impression instead of caring for the comforts or feelings of others. Sincere good manners develop from a heart that is unselfish, and are used by those who have a genuine anxiety for the happiness of their associates. The observance of courtesies should by no means be too elab- orate, for over-indulgence, even in politeness, is to be avoided and gives a suspicion of sham. In simple and unpretentious manner let a man both speak and act so as to inspire in his companions a feeling of ease, com- fort and good fellowship. In social life many situations arise in which keen and ready wit must come to the aid of kindly feelings to prevent acute embarrassment and lasting pain. Often one is present at an important function when a flash of humor injected at precisely the right moment will turn a peri od of solemn dignity into one of informal but genteel freedom. In the development of good manners, asin other virtues, practice makes perfect. One who feels awkward and out of place in the presence of his equals on occasions of gayety naturally shrinks from society in general. Patient practice can remedy this malady and restore such a one to his true place of poise, grace and joviality. Good manners are cherished by all high-minded men and women, and are developed through kindness of heart and cleanness and cleverness of wit. Perfection of manners may be attained by adding to these natural graces close observation of the use and abuse of social customs and by the diligent practice of true courtesy at all times. Robert Kino, ’jj. 78

[Night The moon hung low , Held to heaven by a chain of stars; Along the river banks, The elms and willows silhouetted against the sky Were caught in a golden net Of moving fireflies, And mingled with the stillness of it all The soft laugh of rippling waters, The dainty incense of night flowers. Through the maze of silver-shadowed leaves. Through the heart of silence came the song Of a lonely nightingale ; The tree tops sighed — And all was still again. Dorothy Wallner, ’32. 79
