' QOOR CHILD /AM THE; SCHOOL By Of AUEN G. IRELAND Dnnin. fkjtiiJ nj HtM EJftaimi Itlltj Suit Drfalmttl el fitlit Imlrtltioi Stunts "I dare yuh," "Yer stumped," were among the cries I heard upon stepping on to .the school playground; , •Naturally, I stopped, interested. Here was f\ group of small boys formed in a circle surrounding two of their number matched against each other in a test of strength, ability, and wits. The large boys and ths girls had their own groups at other spots. It was the monthly "stunt test," I learned; All was in order and run according to laws and a plan devised by the pupils themselves. A good lesson in citizenship,. by the way. Children arc sticklers about livinjr up:to their own rules. And they're excellent-law enforcers. It -was interesting to'check off in | my mind each tr&it as I watched I the contest. There was no quitting. [Everyone had-'to.- "deliver the goods." If he tried but lost, all was well. Perseverance. Quick thinking. Mental strategy in action. (Courage. Fair play. The loser's hand extended to the winner. "This |is real character -building," was my thought as I strolled away, satisfied. Old Dobbin Gets A Break At Service Stations Simple Bookkeeping I A colored truck, operator was informed that he could not get his mon- ' ey until he had submitted an itemized t statement for a certain hauling job. After much meditation he scribbled thc following bill: 'C comes and 3 goes ai 4 bits a went -53." ••»-» • Thc American continent has expanded in breadth about 40 feet in the last nine years. T HE multiple conveniences to be found at service stations have been increased by ,two, at' the Memphis, Tennessee stations of the Standard 1 Oil Company 'of Louisiana, an_ Esso'-Marketers affiliate. Provision is being made to supply water for dogs and horses at 38 Esso stations in that city. The oil"company and the' Memphis Humane Society are cooperating in this activity. Salesmen provide .water for dogs and buckets have been placed in a handy position for drivers to water their horses. The company officials say that motorists on tour find this service a convenience, as the modern touring family often takes the family dog on tour -with the rest of the household. Plans are under way to provide this service-rat Esso stations in other cities of the state, with various humane societies cooperating. the gnrngfc waa n two-story, rambling frame house. It was this corner Hint \vltnftt6d the bitterest fighting IK this latest war. On he stops of the frame house <m old Syrian had sat that day, watching the surging, alarming mob of picket!!. But I'll let his son, the proprietor ol thc gas station, tell the story. "They was firing gas shells from nenr the gate there," he told me In broken English. "My faddcr he seet on the step right there when one of them hit hccm. He die in nine days and they make out he die of heart trouble'. I tell you that gns bomb he kill heom." Thc little, dark-skinned Syrian emigrant grew passionate. He . waved his nrms and his voice became high and strident. It was all that I could do to understand him. "People Ls tired of being like slaves," he went on. "Nobody care much how about little mens. Rocch mens get recchcr nil time and poor mens get poorer. When little mens die evrybady try chat hccm. It is bad to be little mens." I cautiously swung him over to the «al'or field cf politics. "Mos" everybody here for Roos'vclt." he said. "Who else can poor mens be for? Jus' nnswer me that, meester.' Conflicting Views Tho three of Us got In thc battered car nnd drove off to another battle front. Here in n beer parlor opposite thc main gate of tho mill we ate sandwiches and talked of the state of the nation. My principal host was the youngish business agent of the Mechanic.'-. Union. His name was Walter Summers and he had a forceful and picturesque way of phrasing his ideas. "Prosperity is coming back sure enough," he said. "The fat boys arc taking all thc credit for themselves. They got full • of vinegar as soon as they got tho wringles off their stomachs. ' I'm afraid Walter was a bit of a cynic. "Labor is hard to do much with," he philosophized. "Most mcn dor.'t think. All their heads is for is a block to keep their cars apart." I asked him about Roosevelt. "Say,' he answered, "if the common mnn uses his head for anything but a hat rack he'll-have to vole for Roosevelt.' But it was the third mnn present who really interested me. He wns a tall, slender, thin-faced mnn around 45, with deep-set black eyes, and thc peculiar near-drawl of the Ohio River hill folks. Ho was one of the discarded men of industry—n steel "roller" •who, except for a single three-month period, had had no work in five years. The advancing machine had outdated him. At 45 he was finished. 'It's thc automatic machines that have ruined us," he went on slowly. "I used to work in a mill that had 30 'rollers' and each roller had a crew of ten men or more. They modcrized that mill and today G rolls with a crew of 5 each can do with machines thc same work; thnt's 30 men and machines that have replaced 300 men. And that's happening all over the steel country Old mills employing up to 2,000 hands arc being closed up and dismantled Thousands and tens o£ thousands of men are being sent into the ranks of the permanently unemployed. I asked him for the answer. "Well, first of all," he explained, "we got to gjt down to a 30-hour v/eek. Then people must get out of the cities and dig part of their living from the land. Then there must be great permanent public works to employ thc men who ( simply can't find a job. j I pondered at length over the end ' of that final sentence of this man [ whose life's wcrk was over nt 45. Did restless, energetic, ambitious people We- make poof loafers Mo amount of time ever will crftsc from my memoiy HIP picture of tho broken and hopeless unemployed men of tho New Castle country of England. Hero a year ago 80 per cent of the Industries had been closed down and sealed forever. On every street corner were knots of undersized boys and mcn with no prospect of ever again getting a job. They could only wait patiently to die. The machines and tariff walls had permanently de- featcd them, But America Is vastly diffeient from England. We nrc a land limitless in materials and resources. Within our, borders nnd under bur rich acres Inre. nil tho IhlngS It takes to mnkc m comfortable and secure Some dny unemployment mny be ns old-fnshioncd nnd out of date as poverty.

Toledo Plan Here, in several of its great industrial cities during the past two years,; the half-century-okl smoldering war ( between capital and labor has broken out with violence and intense bit- I terness. With the coming of Section 7A of the NRA, a drive was made to ] organize labor in such great industries j as steel, automobile parts and rubber | In Toledo alone three desperate dis- i putes threw the whole community in-' to confusion. Each in turn was final- ' ly compromised and arbitrated, and. cut of the very need for peaceful ad- ! justment grew what has been known as the "Toledo plan" of mediating labor disputes. The hard-driving, dynamic Edward F. McGrady, Assistant Secretary of Labor, is given most of thc credit for developing the idea. A board has been formed consisting of nine representatives of labor and nine of industry. When disputes arise thc case is taken to this board and a compromise settlement reached and a strike averted. If the plan stands the test of time it might evenually be adopted generally over America, but there can be nc minimizing (he bitterness that still persists on the side of both labor and industry. j On Steel Battlefield As a somewhat experienced war cor- | respondent I found myself .studying one of the recent battlefields of this | modern industrial war.

Some of them will never work again. But I am certain that DO per cent of the men who have been on relief during the past two years wanted more than anything else the chance to work again.
