Talking A Bit Too Much If you could lay end to end all of Ihc editorial* and special articles that have been written about the current business depression you would have a mass of verbiage of most depressing length. In fact, as the days go on some people are beginning to suspect that we are spending altogether too much lime simply in talking about the depression. A superabundance of talk seldom did anything or anybody any good ; it may Ije that our "hard times" have had about all the vocal attention they need. Among the people who feel that way is Mr. Paul Shoup, president of the Southern Pacific Railroad. Mr. Shoup was in Kansas City the other day and reporters asked him what he thought had caused the industrial depression, and how long it would last. He replied to them as follows: "Why waste lime trying to find out the cause of the present business depression? What difference docs it make? These periods of depression come along, they last a certain time, and go. They're about due to go now. When things are at their worst, it generally is about l< that time that the There is a lol of remark. Sometimes if we have become a niiuon of and nothing has indicated this quite as clearly as our conduct during the past 10 or .12 months. The stock market smash, Heaven.? knows, was. bad,, and so was the overproduction that revealed itself in certain big industries about the same time ; But is there any doubt that we Imvc, on the whole, made the effect of both of these disasters a good deal worse by eternally talking about them? By this excess of talking we have worked ourselves up into a pessimistic frame of mind which has intensified the depression. We have scared ourselves more than the ;facts warranted. All of this doesn't sit well with Mr. Schoup. He remarks that the way to meet hard limes is to prepare for Ihe hotter limes that arc sure to follow; and to illustrate this philosophy he points out that his railroad is now spending $12,000,000 lo build a bridge over Carquinez Straits to replace the car-ferries formerly used. Actions of that kind speak louder Hum words. Henry Ford remarked recently that J^'THRVILLE, (ARK.)

Mr. Shoup vury likely would agree. So probably, would a good many other Americans who are getting tired of a superfluity of words, FRIDAY, SEPTRMRER 19, 1930 SIDE GLANCES By George Clark The High Pi ice of Yachting Betty Carslairs' nonchalant announcement that she has spent moro than $500,000 in the last few years in her attempt to wivst the .-peed championship from American hands is an illuminating commentary on the expensiveness of this particular brand of Indeed, yachting probably stands today as the most expensive sport available. There is simply no limit to the amount of money that an enthusiast can pour into it. The .sailboats lliat competed for the lumur of defending the America's Cup cost over $1,000,000 apiece. A pleasure yacht like Vincent Astor's or J. J'. Morgan's can cost §200,000 a year simply for upkeep. Nevertheless, the poor man can have his whack at it, too. For a few hundred dollars he can get a boat and outboard motor that will take him over the water at a dizzy clip. For a little more he can buy a neat cabined cruiser or sailboat. Yachting is an aristocratic sport, but it does have a democratic side. long continued slarvntlon produces conditions |n which t-!ie body la subject to e;isy Infection.

They AH Declined Relative decline of our imports trom and our exiwrts to nil ol Latin America was practically t h e ame—imparts falling olf about 14 per cent and exports about ID. Im- iraLs fell from $99D,OOU.O(>0 to SB54,- C07.COO and exiwrts from $012,335,000 to $790,130,000.

Kxporls dropped from $551, 300,000 to S43G.500.000 and imports from $011,700,000 to $5aii.VI!0,000. That is. we bought 90 per cent as much from South America us we did in the year before, but she only bought 80 per cent as much from us. Now take the North American icpublics.

It should lie re- membcied, of course, that decline i in values of imports and exports are frequently largely due to th-; ! general lowering of commodity I prices.

Of Saratoga. H was on c! the most de.sixratcly fought battles of the Revolutionary War. Gates had boen sent by Congress to supersede Schuyler and fight Burgoyne's center. He therefore entrenched himself ai Bemis Heights on ground fcrtifled by the famous Polish volunteer, Kosciusko. Burgoyne was anxious to reach Albany, but not daring to leave the American forces in his rear, he advanced and attacked them. Both armies fought stubbornly and neither could claim victory. Historians are now inclined to give the Americans the edge because the British lost twice as many men find were obliged to delay nd v 3nce. The second Battle of Bcmis Heights, fought less than a month later, was won by the Americans with the courageous assistance of Morgan and Arnold. Finally, Bur- cr.yr.° fell back to Saratoga, six mibs distant, r.nd there, on October 17, surrendered.

Any product or service that you see consistently advertised in the pages of this publication is worthy in quality, honestly priced and truthfully presented. Why? For the very simple reason that to the maker and the seller of an unworthy product, advertising presents the quickest and surest road to failure. To the misrepresented product, advertising brings a sudden and fatal storm of public disapproval. To the dishonest maker, advertising brings a costant public reminder of his dishonesty. Truth in advertising has come to stay ... its use is no longer dependent on the integrity of the advertiser, but on his business ability. Nothing else pays. And , in addition, the publishers of yopr paper make every effort to disbar from these columns any advertising that might prove objectionable or unprofitable in any way to its readers. Read the advertisements here. They offer you a dependable short cut to the kind of merchandise you would select if you spent your day in shopping for it.
