White Elephants.


Item Information help

  • Description
    Article comparing certain personal habits (e.g., excessive concern with housekeeping) to "white elephant" gifts, which take up room and must be cared for but give no pleasure. Accompanying photograph depicts a Southeast Asian man riding an elaborately dressed elephant. (Bottom of page 77 incorrectly identifies the issue as 1.1, October 1935. It is from the December 1935 issue, 1.3.)
