He spoke as if uttering a dare. It was a dare, as we found out some three hours later when Our bus was finally called. Catbering our spent strength, we made a rush for the ap- pointed gate, only to find Chat three hundred other people were planning to embark upon tim same bus. There was little if any manifestation of ill humor, but there was, as might be expected, an inordinate amount of push- ing and pulling and sweating and strain- ing. In the center of vortex of this hu- man mass we scarcely had to move our feet, but were propelled by sheer weight of numbers behind us slowly onward and through the gate, and eventually through the door of a bus.

Store Seasoi' s Greetings J. C. PENNEY CO., Inc. (Continued from page 45) the bus we wanted, but at this stage of the game, it did not make a great deal of difference. Any bus would do, so long as we might be on our way. And on out' way we were, in a vehicle so crammed with human!ty that it must fairly have been bulging at the seams. The n a r r o w aisle was choked with standees, and with aching feet, and un- able to move an inch forward or back- ward, we stood and groaned inwardly at the thought of" the one hundred mile trip. that lay ahead. Without any doubt, standing in a crowded bus ranks with the least enjoy, able among the various modes of trans- portation. The traveller's head is above: the level of the windows,, so that he. cannot see the scenery outside. There are no straps or supports of any kind except the seat backs, and groping for these, one is as likely as not toseize upo n the neck of some unoffending passenger. When the bus moves forward suddenly, the grouP in the aisle sways, backward,. and the passengers in tile rear. are .in danger of being fallen upon and crushed When the bus comes to a sudden st0p, the standees as one man continue their forward, m0:tion amid a frantic shiftinK of feet and clutching for non-existent supports. A few of the passengers never fail .to bring their luggage inside rather than trust it to the baggage compartment; there is no .room for these bags, if trey are large, except in the aisle, and here they force the standee either to stand upon one leg' or else take the position of a man riding a horse. On crowded bus trips there are always to be found young mothers holding babes in arms.. Our Labor Day trip, there was one suclt mother in the seat tmmedl' ately next to where we were standing. It was not long before this particular two-year-old began to twist and turn in its mother's lap, and eventually began to emit piercing walls not six inches from our ears. An all day sucker produced "by the mother pacified the little one, but brought new hazards in that the child took a fancy to us and rubbed tim sticky candy lovingly against our face and coat. Well, we lived through the trip, and without any lasting Ill-elects. We even cherished the memory of the harrowing trip, for it afforded us an insight into what we have rem.arked is one of the outstanding phenomena of our times. We Americans don't want to stay home; we will cheerfully endure agonies in the process of getting away from home even for so short a period as one day, and when we return home exhausted after the holiday is over, we will begin to plan feverishly for the next occasion when we will be given the chance to Join the crowd at the bus depot and wear ourselves to a frazzle in the process of enjoying a few hours of relaxation. Let the man who buries the next batch of documentary evidence on the nature of our civilization be sure to make a note of these things.
