Entered as second-class matter at. the postoffice at Fairmount, Ind., un-l der the Act cf Congress of March 8, ! 1S79. i WHISTLERS John A. Ritchie, head of at' omni- J bus concern in New York, got a letter j frcm a bus rider, complaining be- 1 cause a conductor on the lir.e whistled. No! The conductor wasnt fired. ; Ir.ftc-ad Ritchie wrote back explaining j that he appreciated that sort of a f el- f low working for him a man who rould keep the bright side forward, muMr ar.d a general spirit of j gladness. j From such co optimists come. More power to the whistling conductor! j -' o INCREASED PRODUCTION All authorities seem to be agreed that prices can never ccme down nor j the -ccst of living:- be stabilized until greater production' can be obtained. It a truism, repeated from coast ; to coast by banners, business men, j economists snd statesmen that "you ! can't divide more than your produce" that tl.e only remedy for present , shortages of goods and coisequent high prices is more work. j The capitalist says that the laborer ! by demanding: shorter hours and more ; pay for less work is the cause of loss cf production. Eut the worker says 1 he car.r.-.t give the same amount of : work for the eld wages because the old ( vages will not enable him to live. What is the remedy? Undoubtedly more work is needed more produc- . tior' is reeded. On the other hand, it is ur.-l vubtedly better frr humanity as a whole that workers live at a higher ' level than the mere "existence" plane. Thf re is rr.e way to do b"th things, Ths.t way is to use machinery more and men less. The average plant is idle two-thirds of the time. i j j I j j " BESS Everything Can be seen at The News office.

Lame when you awaken, pains pierce you when you bend or lift. It's hard to work or to rest. Backache often indicates bad kidrJeys. Fairmount people recommend Dean's Kidney Tills. Ask your neighbor. Read this case: Mrs. S. Cox, 213 E. First St., says: "When my kidneys get out of order and I have backaches and the action of my kidneys is irregular, Doan's Kidney Pills tAever fail to relieve me." , Mrs. Cox gave the above statement in February 2nd, 1916 and on Novem- ber 22nd, 1920, she added: "I keep Doan's Kidney Pills on hand all the , time and have rfcver found anything i to equal them for relieving kidney . complaint." i 60c, at all dealers.

Pueblo Most Serious By far tfce most severe of the disasters In the United States during the period covered by the Red Cross re- j Port was tne t-uewo n.v-u eariy in ong of he most d5fScu!t In recent years. When the first news t of the horror was fashed throughout j the country, the American Red Cross , National Headquarters responded with j a jrrant of ?1VU for relief work, j Gov-nor Shoup of Colorado, appro- I ciating the long and successful experl- j er.oe of the Red Cross in organizing j disaster relief work, placed the en- j tire responsibility for the administra- j tWi of relief In its hands. j m response to appeals from Pros.- ; dent Harding. Governor Shoup and I other coventors of western states and j through local chapters of the Red j Cr,-ss and other eonnnumty organize- ! ti 'ns, public-spirited" citizens brought the toal contributed for Pueblo's re- hah Hitation to more than S2T.X j The terrible havoc wrought by the i floiMi waters Is a matter of record. More than 2.3i? hmes were affected j fcni ".Hoi persons were left homeless. Estimates of ?0W0 as an absolute minimum for rehabilitation were made by Red Cross officials in charge of th" utes after the disaster occurred. The ' race riot at Tulsa also was unique In disaster relief annals in that outside of a s-.nall emergency relief fund con tributed by the Red Cross, the only re;ier measures outs;ae tr.e city con giste1 of the service of social work ers. nurses and a trained executive whose object was to assist local force. 5n directing their own efforts. In decided contrast with the pre vious year, only one tornado assumed j the proportions of a major disaster. ' This occurred on April l. in the border sections of Texas and Arkansas with the citv of Texarkana as the center. The significant feature of this disaster relief work was the fact that U ra' territory as to make necessary a large number of relJef The famine In China, necessitating relief expenditures totalling more than $1,000 000 hy the American Red Cros was by far the most serious of the foreign disasters in which the Red Orosrs gave aid. Builds Up Its Machinery In connection with the administration of disaster relief measures, an increasing effectiveness on the part of the Red Cross to deal with emergencies was manifested during the past year. In 32S Chapters of the Ameri can Red Cross there have been formed special committees to survey the re sources of their respective communi ties and to be prepared In case of disaster. In others of the 3,402 active Chapters, a network of communication has been formed through which Instaa- taneous relief may be dispatched to any part of the United States. That Its work In this field may bp continued with ever greater effectiveness, the American Red Cross is appealing for widespread renewal of membership during Its Annual Roll Call, to be conducted this year from November 11 to 24.

I 11 r j: ( EXPERIMENT STATIONS Human life is vey complex. Few- j prob'en.s in ir cir.! be settled by mere ; good intentions or more reasoning, j without a large amount of experiment, j It is sometimes embarrassing to find i the of a sngle country. But what an opportunity it gives for work- i ing at a problem from many different ! ar.gies: ; Ohio makes adultery a penitentiary effete; North Dakota gives equal! rights to illegitimate children, and in 1 , . , . , : each case good pecpie say, good; let; 1 the other states do likewise: It might i laws work. Laws of this sort are not made for the jrood people who keep out of scraps; but for the bad, the weak, the thouchtless and impulsive that get ;n-to them. And the problem is: How will such laws work amonet such people? Will a penitentiary senteiAre for adultery keep weak people from committing it, or will it drive them to des- i perate deeds to cover up their sins ? I Will it preserve a home in safety, or will it only complete a wreck and ruin the children by driving sinful has-barAls or wives to divorce and remarriage? Or will the law, perhaps, remain a dead letter, enforced only gainst the poor, or for blackmail? Ohio's experience ought to show. So with the other law. Will legal recognition of a man's illegitimate child work only good, or will it carry with it a recognition of the other as a kind of wife, arid so encomrage concubinage? North Dakota can find out. And if each law works out well on the whole some third state may experiment with the two together, and find out whether it is possible to make a man support a child if both parents have to go to the peniterJtiary for ad mitting that it is his. One can only tell by trying; and 48 experiment stations are better tha" one. o .
