Today those foibles have fastened themselves to the very roots of the nation, and unless shaken loose and tossed into discard they will continue to rock the very foundations of this country like a series of earthquakes. It is high time for the average citizen lo wake up, whether he Be a laborer, a capitalist, or juat a mere customer. He must realize that labor cannot rule the world, any more than the capitalist can, and that there are economic laws which cannot be changed to satisfy the whims of any foolish theorist. S|If-1nf|ifeted Injury S A howTaboutJlhe increased cost of JSutomobifes* comes from a most un- Ssual source—the CIO's United Auto it. comes almost before could begin to reap the profits of the day increase they demanded, and-received. ; What the unionized auto worker did not realize, when demanding higher \vages, is that they are consumers, ioo, 'and buyers of automobiles. Miilti- ply-MKe increased cost of all things produced by labor and the next result js soaring living costs for all consum- 'ers, and that includes laborers whether they want to believe'it or not. r The cost of many items will reach the point one of these days .that buyers will .strike—it possibly is happening .right 'now in some lines if merchandise 5^—and then, laborers will be howling !at the doors to the factories literally Jbeggins for a chance to work and the 'OJJptfrtunity will not be forthcoming ^immediately. . : ;• ; .It must wait until the merchant [has/cleared his shelves of slow-moving J merchandise at a loss and while this «is ^appening >the ' wholesaler and the * f actoisy^o wiier ,<-and the operators of i transportation systems will be taking i unwanteiL'.vacations.

The principles which caused labor- i to organize''are laudable, but the actices,,which, have developed within Take A Two-Way Look The American people right through tills gap appear lo be dissatisfied with everything, and, If so, not without some cause. Baclc In the mountains of East Tennessee years ago there was n inun who lived long enough to become something of n. philosopher, and had taken lull advantage of his opportunities along those lines, lie was [ami o[ Biuylug that, every msm ought to tube a two-way look at himself and his circumstances and conditions before lie decided how well or 111 he was ay. A man ought, he suld, to fleure on how little he hud nnd then come up on Ihe other side and figure on how much. It Is nn exercise that may. we think, be especially commended lodny. It, has been said thut the human race divides pretty sharply Into two classes,. One says "only half-done" and the other says "only got the last half to do now." Maybe a combination or composition ot those point;; of view would be the most usclul. —COMMERCIAL, APPEAL.

May 24. <NEA>— Cities eager to get their hands '~>n some of that $500,000,000 just authorized by Congress for new nlr- port construction are being urged to get going on their local planning. At the same Urne, they're being warned not to expect too fast action, sending a delegation lo Washington or putting the local congress- mnn to work to get some action would today be a wnste of time. It is now doubtful If any con- tructlon cnn get going for n year, he spring of 1948 may be a better et. It will take the Civil Aeronnu- Ics Administration a year to do he planning and 8'vc approval to ocal projects, fltling them into a national airport system. Even filer thnt, building malerials nmy x in such short supply, because o{ veterans' housing priorities, that Ittle will be available for airport construction. The biggest catch in the program right now, however ,1s thnt the federal government at present has no money to spend. All it has is an Authorization by Congress, it. will take! ii separate 'act, arjproprla- thd money,''before liny work can i be(tir(. ;It nmy be .JU'v before this appropriation 'net 'is toass- ed. Once the money has been put mi the starting line, about S3.000.000 will be set aside for planning, atid a similar amount will go to the Civil Aeronautics Administration for management purposes. The remainder will be available at the rate of not more than $100.000,00:1 a year, over n seven-year period. It will thus be a sUibtlrtcr as other construction declines. l.OCAI* GOVERNMENTS MUST MATCH FEDERAL FUNDS As the construction money is aynropriated by Congress, three- fourths of It will be apportioned among the states, according to luallv. in Hie rush hours the schedules call Wr movements every 30 .seconds.

The CAA airport construction program calls for the enlargement ot 1625 fields now in operation and the building of 3050 new ones. Only ISO of the new airports would"'be big class three and four fields for commercial plane operation. The remaining 2900 would be smaller class one and two fields for feeder line, short haul, and private planes. Private enterprise will probably develop thousands of others. But under this government program there will be a minimum of 7000 airports in operation by 1053, at an outlay of an additional $1,000,000,000. Mediator HORIZONTAL Courier News Want Ad?
