Human Needs os. Profits It is true, ns William Green, president of -the American Federation of Labor, recently stated, that the cutting (if \\pges ;W the laying oft" of men.-.;by industrial concerns only accentuates the business depression and delays the return of prosperity. It does more than that. It works un undeserved hardship upon the men Affected and upon their families. But it is not necessarily true, as Mr. Green has declared, that employers liking uck steps (it this lime are "public tneinics." . For the most part employers are as mlich the victims of "the current situation as me the workers. If they do not:'share equally in the Hardship;; it imposes, they at least arc equally unable to do anything to cure it. With . many of them, for causes absolutely out of their control, it is a matter of cut-' ..-ling.costs or-sacrificing their businesses, and it is 1 foolish for Mr. Green or anyone else to expect them to take the latter r courso. It is 'ridiculous for'Mr. Green to hold individual employers, or even employers as a whole, responsible for a set of , .circumstances that most of limn can cope with only by retrenchment. There are exceptions, of course—corporations that.have'accumulated great surpluses in recftit years or arc still operating profitably.. Some of these are: maintaining wage scales and payrolls beyond Iheir needs simply to avoid contributing to the depression. Others arc perhaps propa-ly .subject ; 'lg criticism for'Taihire fo'clo so.' > "•*•-'•-• '••''• But the thing to keep sight of is that production in this country is geared to one purpose—the earning ofiprofits. We have the ckill, the equipment, the man power and the resources in this country to provide a high standard of living for every man, woman tiiul child in the United State;;. But millions this winter will, go without actual necessities, to say nothing of comforts and luxuries, because it is to no one's profit, to produce the things they need. We have accepted the profit motive as the only sufficient stimulus to productive effort and industrial progress.

COURIER NEWS the. minds of m^u^ who have been brought up on thcHdeu that the first purpose of any business is to make money. Signs of A A good many of the business charts and reports now current do not look va-y encouraging. However, many of them hold out a good deal of promise for the future. A case in point is" the November Retail Trade Bulletin of the Alexander Hamilton Institute. This bulletin points out that motor car production this yiiir far below last year's. So far, we have produced 2,028,000. curs, as against '1, G41, 000 in the same period last year, and the total production for 1030 is expected to be 3,500,000, which does not compare well with the 5,358,000 of 1929. However, tin bulletin points out that this indicates a vastly increased production for 1931— in which yciir it is estimated that 5,000,000 cars will be built. That would put the auto industry back in full stride fcgain— which, in turn, would stimulate industry uj a whole throughout the United States.

MORRIS FISHBEIN' Editor, Journal of the ; Ainrric:in Medical Association, and of Hy- gela, (he Health Magazine It Is recognized that the mother with active tuberculosis" shbiihl :nt nurse her baby and tlmt I'M m> thcr with severe chronic 'dississs, such as lnfiammatlon'"of tt.c kia- neys, heart disease, or . oncer' should not be called on to undertake this task. It is usual!;,- customary to discontinue -.nursing at a time when the breast is ir.fcctoi. In case'the child develops vcm- iting or colic, or fails to fain in weight, it is not necessary ..'or (lie mother lo discontinue .nursing. lr. such a case she must find 'oiit from her physician whether or not s'.ic is.feeding the. baby ,often..eiiouzh or too often,. whether'".or not sh; is herself eating a proper fliot, and whether or hot' It 'Is' desirable for the baby to have iffldUloiul, hid. Tho woman who is nursing 'a baby must, keep herselr IB. good physical condition and cat the proper food.- In order (a keep herself in good physical cMiclltion. she must have plenty'of sleep and some exercise In the open-air. Most authorities on the care of Infants advise discontinuance of the midnight' feeding nfter the first few weeks. They recqijimcnd that the mother .rest for at least one hour ..every afternoon! and that she relax and rest for.B; while after each nursing. -'u'j- II Ls recognized that worry and mental strain may affect the quantity and nature of the secretion of milk." If the mother has not sufficient milk, the baby will be •hungry and fretful. The mother will, therefore, get, little rest 'and, as a result, the supply of milk will not increass. In such cases, the addition of suitable artificial feeding may bring about improvement in both the 'mother and the child. It. lias nlso been recognized that 'one of the chief factors forcsus- ing" good flow of milk is stimulation to the breast that comes froni complete emptying by the infant. Thus methods have been developed both by massage and by the use of artificial devices to empty the breast in c'ase"the iiifant does not do so. Such regular emptying stimulates the production of milk .r, .W, McKim Jtiu-rlott cites-cases in which .wet nurses have been known to produce more than a "nl Ion of milk.a day. The size of the breast and apparently the fact that the mother is cither thin' or fat does not seem, to be of great importance in relationship to the amount of milk thnt the mother may pro;liic?. It Is not possible to state in advance that any woman will or will not be able to nurse her baby. A careful study of this ability after the infant Is born is the one sure r/iethod of determining this fad.

THE BOOK •SURVEY "The Water Gypsies" Has a. Scr- dld and Gloomy Plot for a Framework, -but Somphow II Emrrjes as a High Comedy, Brightened by Humor and by a Millon- Tolerance...... ; - » • * . By BRUCE CATTOX .. NEA Service Writer The literary- world is teaming with authors who can take a mean nnd sordid story and u«e i! !3 prove that life is a mean nnd sordid affair. Authors who can taSe that kind of story and come to an opposite conclusion are more rare— and. on the whole', their books make belter rending. A. P. Herbert, who v:ri:cs for "Punch." Is one of this latter class; and his new novel, "Tl).'i Water Gypsies," Is very much worth reading. Mr. Herbert tells a s;ory v that is essentially gloomy and Kcak. Ills heroine is n girl on n London Iwge, sunk' in poverty, with no horizon except that which the movies mid the Sunday supplements can give her. She is loved by two men; a hall-baked young Socialist .'who is surly,'- grumpy and altogether unpleasant, and in illiterate and Inarticulate hulk o( n barge mnn. She, In turn, has a hopci«s passion for .an nrtist. the wealthy and eccentric son of an carl. Her father smianders all of his money on the horse races, her sister lives in sin with a race track tout nml she herself plods on through dKippoim- ment and disillusionment. Not, on the surface .very uplifting. But observe how Mr. Herbert handles It. In some way he Infuses a mellow and lolcrai.t ^:ow Into his pages. The talc is no; mc»u and sordid, as'he tells it: it becomes slrangely . hopeful, touched with light. He is logical, all ths way. He refuses to twist his story-oni of snap's for a story b^ck haj-py ending; and yet, at tii: end.--you do not feel that life is wreicliej and dark. ^ .

WINSTON CHURCHILL "A,Roving Commission," by Winston Churchill, is revealing and entertaining—for about 2W pages. Then it becomes just another who- I-ain-nnd-hoiv-I-rtltl-ll book. Uut its first hair is. worth reading. Mr. Churchill here tells the story of Ills early life; and It Is an excellent picture of what you might call the close of the golden age for England's upper class. We see how a young man born to the purple in Imperial Britain grew up, entered tlie army, served ills time in India a:nl found lite all to the good. There was no need to question provi(ienc2 about anything; it was ordered that some fortunate souls, being well-barn, should rule tlie lesser breeds without the law, .and everything was arranged very nicely for them. • This part of the laic is told with a good deal of wit. nut. later, as Mr. Churchill grew older and took to pushing hinvielf forward with what must have been, to his contemporaries, an insufferable amount of crust—well, the book sutlers; and one loses a bit of the sympathy nnd admiration that the first part of the book aroused. However, the tale moves r.ict all the way through. This Englishman packed a -gOD<1 deal ol excitmcn: Into his youth, and he gets nni of It into the took. It is published i by Scrlbncrs, at $3.50 a copy. « * * A .GOOD COLLECTION" OF BOI.ITHO'S ESSAYS The late William Bolllho ' was given some of the mcst c>;trava- gam praise that any newspaperman ever got.
