Courage, Character Good times will come buck one of . those days, says Utilities Magnate Samuel Insull, because "courage and character will make them come." . Mr. Insull goj; oft' this remark at.a festival luncheon of the Philadelphia Chamber of Commerce. Ho followed it • by complaining that some; Americans are "petulantly calling upon the government .for aid," and then declared Hint if the government will only let things alone everything will come out very! nicely and all of this courage and character will bear, their proper fruit. There is no denying, surely, that courage is an essential quality these days. This is especially true in the case of the man who hasn't had a job since last January, and i\vho doesn't know when he is going to get another. And if Bijch a man has a good character, the butcher and the grocer are more likely to; trust him for his food supplies 'while he is out of work; indeed, if his character ' is something superlative, even his banker might accommodate him with a small loan. However; this particular recipe leaves one with 'a somewhat unsatisfied feeling. Courage and character ave very line attributes; but isn't ;it essential .that our business and industrial community display, also, a third attribute —brains? 1 The most dismaying thing about the piescnt situation,^when .you,-stop to s tWi*A*lfei* it.'.is'ils Yii/qmefiiig hint- that'American business simply blundered into the depression without foreseeing it, and. that it has not now the faintest idea how it is going to; get out . or how it is going to stay out once it dors get out. Up until the very moment that the stock market broke iu 1029, the more ' vocal members of the commercial class were assuring tis Hint prosperity would last forever, since we hud entered a new-era. For six months after the crash they were trying to tell us that the trouble was only a temporary recession, and not a week passed without some seer spying the beginning of an up-treud. Now, with hard times in full blast, the franker business leaders are admitting that they, don't know just whnt tile trouble is or how soon it will be over. Wouldn't it be better if we could hear n little more about the need for brains and unprejudiced study, and a little loss about courage and character? "Buy Now Movemeul" It Is the advertiser'* rl3ht to urge people to buy now. Selling appeals based upon l/ie argument that prices are favorable, stocks are adequate, service Is excellent, and (he public can profit by taking advantage of these conditions nre'Justifiable If accurate and logical. Some advertisers, however, In their scramble to take advatiUBc of the "Buy Now Movement," ma losing sight of the fact that consumers are Intelligent, thinking people. Even though there Is a tendency to put off buying, the desire for possession Is still very strong with many persons. Constructive advertising will make this r]pslrc stronger than Uielr fears. We are ready to believe Hint consumers know values and that they may be entrusted to recognize good values. In times of general prosperity when buying Is move freely Indulged In, the buyer may sometimes be misled by lalse claims and flamboyant arfertious. Now he Is conservative, he is Inquisitive, ho Is suspicious. It Is more Important than ever before that advertising claims carefully state the truth, which otherwise will further arouse suspicion and Impair .confidence. Instead of buying he will shrink deeper Into what he feels to be his protective shell. —St. Louis Better Business Bureau Bulletin. SIDE GLANCES By George Clark lltV FIRST AIRPLANE FtlGHT On Dec. n, 1903, the first successful airplane fllgl't took place at Kitty Hawk, :•(. C., when Orvill': Wright, an American inventor, piloted the first power- driven heavicr-than-alr machlno. The machine, with pilot aboard made four sustained free flights. The longest of. these had a dura lien of 59 seconds and a speed of 30 miles an hour. Orvllle and his brother, Wilbur, were Interested In aviation as bicycle mechanics in Dayton, O. They found In their experiments (list existing scientific data of aeronautics was almost all guesswork and began to make Investigations of their own. The night at Kitty Hawk was the result of their joint efforts. After this, tlyMr further experiments led to the development of an airplane which established a nev. record on Sept. 12, 1908, by remaining in the air one hour and 15 minutes. Following tests at Fort Myer Va., tiio United States governmen accepted the Wright machine. Many honors were bestowed on the two brothers during the numerous demonstrations they made in Europe during 1908 and 1001). The original Kitty Hawk machine Is now exhibited In the science museum at South KensuiB- ton,- London. MOTHER NATURE'S GURIOSTO The .Windmill Cuba HI. Higdon.
