Not af a// Surprised ' "There is a racket," remarks District Attorney Grain of New York, "iir everything from babies' milk to ' f iuieral coaches." Mr. Cruiii is ciifiagul right now in •an' investigation into New York's rackets; He lias been a prosecutor there for many years, anil probably lie iloo:; not easily get shocked; but lie admits that what lie has been told, thus far, has simply amazed him. His informants have told him, .for example,- that every ton of freight that comes into New York City pays its loll to some enterprising racketeer. They have told him that every musician in tho city has to contribute to a racketeering ring, under penally of having his instrument smashed if he refuses. They have told him that every laundry , and dry cleaner in the city has to pay tribute; that small merchants have to. subscribe ' to "night watchman" semees, or have their windows broken; that garage owners are forced into, line, and that even professional men, . finch as doctors, have been Befoscl in the racketeers grip. •All of this, ol course, is not especially new; and the fact that these rackets -. exist is not.half so surprising as our complacent acceptance of them. i Americans have known for. quite a' while that every big city, and many : . small cities, were infested by racket. eers- and Americans have done nothing whativer aboiit it—except, perhaps, .pay lots, of at tlie box office to see moving pictures in ..which- the adventures of ( (liese gentlemen of the racket arc s;t forth. The growth of this illegal and invisible super-government has contributed new words lo our vocabularies,'but it has not/as far as anyone can see, aroused so very - much indignation. " Possibly thic h because the ordinary • American thinks that these problems ; concern only the cities directly involved —New York, Chicago, Detroit and other great metropolitan centers. There could not be a more short-sighted view. Lincoln remarked that tho nation could; not- exist half free and half slave. Wa might carry that same observation into the present day; the nation cannot exist half sick and half \\ v )\ f If rottenness grips the big cities, its influence is bound to extend through-' out (lie country. Unhss some way of cleaning u;> the .situation 'is speedily found, every American will some day be feeling tho effects of it. A Sign 0} Prosperity ]f James Hohannon, president of tjic Pecrk's.; Motor Car Company, is correct, prosperity is assured for the American automobile industry for years to tome. By 39-10, nays Mr. Bohannon, the rest' of the world vrill be using automobiles on the same scalp, thai America now uses them. Since the United States now uses 20,000,000 cars while all the rest of the world uses only 9,000,000, it is evident llmt for this prediction to conic true tlu're would have to be an expansion of motor car production and distribution greater in scope Hum any- ti:ii!i; yet dreamed of. \ liic foreign market, for snitos, says Mi-. Bohannon,' will remain America's as long as AiiK'riea continues to provide the bc-t values. In thai 1«> K doubtless; ;;eruetly correct. Lei us hope that his prediction is equally sound.

For tlie farmer knows nothing of those sharp distinctions of production and consumption and income nnd expenditures which divide the office, shop and mill from the home in the city man's thinking. The farm and the farm home are a sincle unit—where tlie kitchen range is productive capital; quite as much as a team of horses or s hay-rake. Electric power is of even greater assistance in the farm home than in the field. Over half the current used is applicd'to kitchen, laundry and household cleaning. Although the American farm is highly powered in the field, modern engineering did little for the .women of the farm until the advent of electric power. For every li ou - of farm work performed l>y engines and horses, even now three hours of man and vcirian •{xnvcr arc required. It is in that two-thirds of farm work that electric power can be U"d to substitute for human lalior. ARKANSAS-MlSSpURI POWER COMPANY "At Your Service"
