B:iMiig his opinion on informa- lion gained from personal observation and an analysi.s of widespread reports. Mr. Klingler believes that \\-i : have passed out of lhat cycle of our experience when people would not accept a bargain if one knocked ihem do'.vn in the street. In its stead has come an era of leplarcnicnt. "When things arc exhausted." he paid, "they mnsL be replaced. And that apnlies to business of nil kinds.

They are nol arjologizinij about buying a new automobile or new clothes and many other things to which they richtfnllv were entitled, but for which they would nol spend money because they thought it wouldn't, look right. People thought they were belli'; patriotic by refusing to make nny purchase except for the barest necessities, whereas they were their country's own worst enemy, as well as their own. "Now. with a ilew buying spirit in the air. people are doing thein- wives and business a great favor. 1 he increase in spending that is beiiiK engaged in by wise men is a nrcttv conclusive indication that all rates and charges must advance I sometime in the future. "To hasten the buying spirit nnd the replacement era. we should clear our minds of any thought that we nrc in a depression. For. one of Ihese days, our grandchildren are eo'mt; to look back on us as old fogeys. They will .wonder how we could be so shortsighted as to imagine thai the orogrcss of this country wilh its va'st anil almost limitless resources could be imi:eclrd because of our shortcomings."
