Mount Pleasant News (Newspaper) - May 24, 1958, Mount Pleasant, Iowa
The it. Pleasant news fair these Days by George e. Sokolsky the Kow Tow among the games that Arr played by the Jet society of new York is the worship of Royalty nobility and euro Jean imitations of such. In fact when one is introduced to Dukes Barons counts and their varieties of spouses it is Wise to assume that much of it is american particularly the lady Folk. Give the Little girl a big hand of course she has done Well by herself and after several marriages with or without usual sanctions has achieved the distinction of a Good table at the Colony or be Parillon. What More can a country girl ask for i heard a Story the other Day about a party Given to some boy visiting Here. Whose ancestors once were Kings. He is said to be charming and inoffensive but the guests were required to curtsy to the poor fellow who must have wondered where these americans got their manners for according to no Book of etiquette is it required for anyone to curtsy to him even in ills own country where he holds no office. What he needs to understand is that these queer people he met do not curtsy to him because he is perhaps a prospective Monarch they do it to please themselves. It is a bit of play acting like wearing coronets at balls or kissing each other s Cheeks in deep hatred and Competition. It is like admitting courtesans into their Homes at the Lisk of having their husbands whisked away by professionals whiskers a Ayers who measure a person s Worth by Tho furs and diamonds he can buy and who have their lawyers get a report on his net Worth like a credit Agency before they give the first kiss. This is a business based on the ancient principle Quot no ticket a no washed in the same spirit they play at being part of a european Royal court right Here in new York and their games would be very amusing were the times not so serious. For some foreigners who encounter these imitators of Madame Pompadour see Only that much of our country and to them it is tawdry wasteful uncultured and materialistic. They return to their own lands full of ridicule for they say if the Best american society is like that what about the rest of it unfortunately they have not seen the Best of american society nor can they among the merchandisers of new York where so much seems to be for Sale that even the Sellers Are tarnished by the Rule of caveat emptor vol. 80, no. 12,j it.
