Sudtj WOl Amci WO pm fueidajr WTAD Qulucy M0 pm Thursday WSLI City pm The Role of Human Gadflies TN the insect world theres a large fly that causes horses and cattle immeasurable tor ment Its called the gadfly It just let livestock go to sleep To saythat this is annoy ing is putting it mildly In human affairs theres a counterpart to this troublesome insect Our dictionary makers have even taken notice of this fact with a second definition for gadfly The first one of course is A large fly that torments cattle and horses No 2 is A restless annoying busybody Im not sure however that this is the best possible defini tion for the human gadfly It leaves the idea that He or she is mostly bad or maybe all bad Restless annoying busy body cant be interpreted as a compliment by the widest stretch of ones imagination More and more as I older grow Im persuaded that theres a use ful function in modern society for the gadfly Im byno means will ing to see him or her set down as a restless annoying busybody It might take me a little time to distil by definition into dictionary size but I believe I could do it TO ME the human gadfly is the person who goes around raising questions about everything in sight Axioms cliches and ac cepted dogma are all fair targets for the gadfly How do you know thats true is the commonest question asked by him And when you explain that no bodyhas ever questioned this particularmatter before the gad fly seems to take almost fiendish pleasure in announcing Well Iquestion it and youve got to show me proof I shouldnt be surprised if Ben jamin Franklin was the greatest gadfly who ever lived He spent his whole life doing two things Raising questions and answering his own questions His question ing mind led not only to the dis covery of electricity but to just about every other household con venience we have around our home even to this day Next only to Italys Galileo and Im not sure which should be rated tops Franklin is the great est human in history so far as versatility of intellect is con cerned Most assuredly he ranks asAmericas foremost gadfly ABOUT 25 YEARS AGO or so a young man named Robert M Hutchins came to the University of Chicago as

prevail anywhere near half the time He was al ways being overruled by his board of directors or by his faculty By normal standards of judg ing he would have to be set down as no great shakes as a
