The Rust brothers of Memphis, may or may, not have, perfected the mechanical cotton picker for which the world has been waiting; but they do seem to have compel led folks! to think seriously about the treat 'problem of. machines and the men who run them. These brothers, as you may ro-call, announced recently that their cotton picker is at last in shape, to go to town; but they ' asked the country at large to help them find some way of putting it on the market without throwing hundreds of thousands of southern cot-to picker ant share-croppers out of work. ".How," they, asked, "can our invention bring security and leisure from toil, instead of resulting, in starvation and homelessncss?" They have advanced,, several ideas. One Is to lease the machine Instead of selling it, requiring the lessee to maintain a definite minimum wage and maximum hour scale for his workers, to abolish child labor and to recognize the right of ' collective bargaining among employees. Another is to use part of the machines profits to set tip a social insurance plan for the disabled and. the aged, and to develop a program of industrial diversification in the southern cotton belt. ' Now these suggestions may be very good or they may be very foolish. The cotton picket' Itself, tor that mutter, may full fur short of' what the brothers expect it to be. But the point is that there, for the first, time, we biiyp Inventors of labor-saving machinery realizing thai the labor which their machine saves has got to have some' piuce to go and something to do when It gets there. . ' ' ' , ' . ' There is sometfiing .rather ironic about that term, "labor-saving." Labor is "saved," as, we say, when some new technical process is perfected; but It sometimes seems almost as if we should say that it is lost, instead. The working man whose bread and butter has been cut out from under him by u whirling contrivance of steel is not likes) to look on that contrivance as an unmitigated blessing. And although our Whole society is geared to an ever-increasing use of machines, so that it would be insane for us to try to get back to the old handcraft system, we must realize that this "saved" labor presents one of the foremost problems of this gener- ation. This machine age contains more promise for the well-being of mankind, In a purely physical sense, than did any other age in history. If man is finally to be released from drudgery he r-ay at last begin to live as God intended him to live, with his mind and spirit as well as the muscles of his back. But he has to go on eating while he is doing this high-toned living. A heavy responsibility rests on society as a whole when It bases itself on labor-saving machinery. The Rust brothers deserve great credit for having the vision to recognize this responsibility. PORTSMOUTH'S PROOF Anybody, who lives beside an American river might do well to reflect on two things the case of Portsmouth, O., and the fable of the three little pigs. The pigs, as you may remember, set out to build houses. One pig saw trouble coming, built a solid hfu.o of brick, and got by when the huffing and puffing began. The other little pigs, building less securely,' had a great deal of trouble. .Now, Portsmouth '''Is a solid industrial city nestled down on a point of land between the Ohio and Scioto rivers. Some years ago the citizens decided to take a leaf from the smart pig's book and get ready for trouble. So they laid out 750,000 to build a great steel and concrete flood wall along the waterfront. There are a good many other cities along the Ohio, from Pittsburgh to Cincinnati, and of them all Portsmouth seems to have 6 oil ond 12 compression rings, Chev.

Linda's eyes grew a little wider as she appraised him, seeing him for the first time as a person. Pete was embarrassed by her ; silent scrutiny. "Guess I was pretty presumptuous. I don't usually get that way. I wanted you to know, though." "I'm glad you told me," she said gravely. "Why did you do that? Why did you come t otell me?" Pete didn't answer at once because lie didn't know how. He didn't know himself.. He couldn't very well tell her that hejiked fte way she curried her head, or that he knew she was the kind, of girl who could take the harder knocks, but he didn't wunt her to have to take them. He hadn't really thought about it before. When ever he thought about her he had disliked her. In his own mind he amended the word dislike to resent. He hadn't disliked her; he had resented her. The latent pride in him that had protected him so well through his young years hud met not challenge until he met Linda and knew that he or his kind did not exist for her. And Pete, like most who knew or thought they knew Linda Bourne, was wrong. She was in capable of snobbishness. She was fair, kindly, gracious and intelli gent, but she was reserved and hud the considerate nloofncss of her class. She 'wus not confiding, effusive or intrusive in any rela tion in her life. And she wus shy. She lacked the powerful weapons ot spontaneous action and obvious reaction, sometimes called aggres siveness. But Pete did not know thut, and, from his first moment of meeting her in the Blude office, he checked his uncomfortable feeling about her to his own belief that she regarded him us her inferior. And now he did not know how to answer her. He was glad that none of his gang wero there to hear him fumble weakly (or an explanation that ,came haltingly. "Oil, I dont know.

But Portsmouth sat tight und waited. This spring the snows melted, the rains descended, and the waters ruse; and what happened Every other city in the vicinity was flooded. From Pittsburgh, where catfish marie their nests among the lamp posts of the main stem, all the way down to the neighborhood of Cincinnati, the water went swishing through the streets, driving people from their homes, workers from their shops, und merchants from their stoics. Many lives wero lust; property dumugc rose to ustronomicul figures. t . But' Portsmouth snuggled down behind Its flood, wall and went about its business dry-shod. Its mills, ruiUuiid shops, and public Utilities carried on without a letup. Children played unconcerned n yiirds. 20 feet below the ljvcl of the swollen river. Cash registers clicked and jangled in stores tliut might eusily have been full of, water. City Manager Frank E. Sheehun estimates that Portsmouth would have suffered property damage of at least $1,000,000 had it not been for the wall. Industrial payrolls of $350,000 a week, would have been suspended. There would have been heaven knows how much suffer ing and hardship for individuals. There is the neatest kind of moral in all this, both for those who live in river cities und for those who do not. Those great "natural" catastro- phles that visit us every so often whether they be floods, industrial depressions, or wars don't come out of a blue sky. We can see them years in advance. And despite ail that we say about their irresistible force, it is possible to get ready for them. , . Portsmouth proved it. Isn't the tip worth taking?

With the light littlo wet bull of her own handkerchief, she. wi ped tne nisi oi ner tears awa; ay. smoothed . her rumpled tucked, hci hair up and away. "Lloii't mind me," Pete frock, drew said. "And, a good cry often does a world of good. Have a cigaret?" , He tendered his crumpled pack. "N-nt, thank you," Linda started to say, then readied with a hand that still trembled childishly. "Thanks," she said, as steadily as her elosc-to-tears voice would permit. She swallowed hmd and strove for poise. Then, remembering, she lost whut little she could assume. Her composure crumbled and she buried her fuee in her arms. "Suy, look here that won't do any good." Peter, in the throes of an unaccustomed emotion, found himself, for once, with pity lending a sturdy brake to the flow of his flippant talk. What did a fellow do to comfort a .weeping girl'i gill? "I'm all r-right. Don't m-mind me. I'll stop in a minute," Linda brought out between sobs. "Want me to go away?" Pete was sure thut she did. "No," she answeerd to his surprise. "Please may I have your handkerchief uguin?" . "What is there about nic that appeals to ladies in distress?" he asked foolishly when the silence threatened to become permanent. "I'm sure I don't know anything about your ladies in distress," Linda said at last. "But I...... I don't want to be alone." "Alone? How about the family?" Pete nodded toward the house.
