Dr. David Seabury, psychologist, recently told a Boston audience that civilization is facing a crisis, for a 30 per cent increase in insanity has been noted in the last ten years, and a probable increase of 60 per cent in neurosis. He contrasted the crime waves of the present day, the revolt of the younger generation and the increase in divorce with what he termed the old colonial days of leisure, space and the simple life. Quoted from an article, “Days of the Simple Life, From the Hartford Courant” published in The La Grange Journal, November 22, 1928, La Grange, Texas.
