According lo labor siwkesmcti. wages must not be "frozen" below the "comfort level," ;ttainablf by on estimated yearly Income of $:i.fi2:i per family, especially when prollls arc rising. Of course, employers make no such attempt to "freeze" wages. And besides, it is foolhardy to try to muke wages depend on profits. For, not only are profits what is left after wages are paid (and sometime- conspicuous by their absence), but over long periods of time, business income is insiitll-cient to pay enterprisers interest on their own investment and wages of management for the services which they render. Labor ought to remember that as It becomes more productive, and as industry becomes more mechanized, higher wages and shorter hours of employment will come as a consequence, regardless of "sit - down strikes" and legislation designed to force arbitrary increases in wage Incomes. Payments for labor already take from 65 to 80 per cent of the national income annually, and labor, the country over, has traveled far from the 10 to 12 hour day of the nineties. Moreover, workers should understand that in the long run they lose days of labor Just as certainly as bond and stockholders lose their in-vnittttfr.ta, C. .. inted policies ara followed. Anyone who can remember back to the NRA days will recall that when increased wage rates bring higher wage costs, selling prices must also advance. So, even if industry as a whole were to adopt the Camegie-Illinois Steel Plan of raising wage rates as living costs advance, wages and prices would enter a vicious circle. There would be no known limit to which both croud not rise. Obviously, it is not the economists' reasoning which has failed to bring so-called comfort wagts by the magic which labor imagines is possible Rather it has bca labcr'r unwilling ness to be convinced of the soundness of economic principles. There are simply too many labor factions, that for one reason or another are content merely to chug up and down the sidetracks and dead-end spurs of progress instead of switching over io tho main lines, and going ahead at full steam. sicmaster. have known one another for more than fifteen years.

In this connection we will consider for a moment the task of adjusting wages. Unionized employees, and in some cases amployers, arc still acting as though there is no relation at all between wage rates and the productiveness of workers. Union labor wants to work only six 'lours a day and five days each week, and yet insist on increasing wages until it can enjoy a much higher level of living. Apparently, it still believes that larger and larger quantities of goods can be produced automatically' simply by making heavier business disbursements for wages, and oy insuring more and more leisure ail around.

No, the people who are better off as "the result of lavish government spending may quite properly be 'furious", if, being public-spirited citizens, they place the public interest above their own interest. And they may also properly be furious, if they believe that the policy of inordinate spending, though temporarily increasing their profits, will lead to disaster, and thus make their ultimate condition much worse than it would be without the lavish spending. There are many people. Indeed, who have a contempt for spendthrifts people who spend their substance carelessly to-day, with little or nc thought for the morrow. And the people look upon the government a spendthrift, which year after year is living beyond its income, and does not seem to be great.'y concerned whether its receipts and expenditure) are broughl in balance. Private individuals cannot pursue such a course without coming to grief, or going on relief.

Take a farmer, growing wheat or cotton. In the event of a war he would doubtless receive a higher price for hu products.

PARIS, Feb. S. ( INS With expenses totaling nearly $7,000,-000,000 for this year, Germany and France late this week bared their financial speed in the world rearmament rac3. Multiplying her military outlay of two years ago by a dozen-fold, the reieh will siend during the 1936-1937 fiscal year $6,040,000,000 for defense purposes, the authoritative Merlin monthly, the Hanker, said. The Banker frankly admitted that, while the reichbank can issue bills to cover the deficit, this immense cost means lowering the people's living standard and economic isolation for Germany. The French chamber of deputies overnight approved, by 405 to 186, a four-year arms plan, including completion of the east border mag-inot line of fortifications, to cost $885,000,000. This is in addition to a similar sum being spent on regular defense costs this year.

Fb. 5 Pyramiding objections to "star chamber" proceedings have led the State Department to modify its method of negotiating reciprocal trade treaties. Fourteen such treaties already have been negotiated. In each case, the negotiations were conducted in lower duties on imports in return for concessions by foreign governments. American farmers and manufacturers have had no opportunity to oppose specific concessions by their government until the treaties already were negotiated and agreed upon. Now, however, the State Department announces two deviations from previous policy. First, it has Jjeen announced that a treaty with WASHINGTON, Feb. 5.
