Broadway & Chickasawba All Americans live so well—and our goals are so high ihat sometimes we complain because we don't have more. And we will have more—I hat has been (he history of America—more things for more people at less cost. But we forget — sometimes — that we are belter off than any other people on earth —and that in America we do have more things for more people. Take telephones for instance—this will give us an idea of how we compare wilh people working under political management in other lands. In (he United States in 1!»47 there were 20 telephones for every one hundred persons. In Russia there was less than one telephone for ever 100 persons, while in Kngland there were 8 telephones per one hundred people. In other words, the United Staes has 26 times as many lelehones per 100 people as Russia and two-and-one-half times as many as England. The reason is because in America business is managed by- businessmen—not controlled by the government. In America, business can make more products—use more machines — work more efficiently—and Ihe worker makes more real wealth. No other system or country has ever done so well. No other people ever made so much money as Americans make. Let's keep it American—let's keep government busy at the job of governing— and acting as referee—and let business keep on giving more people more things for !«•• working time.
