Although they have offered many individual definitions, there has been unanimous appraisal of free enterprise as one of the first essentials of American democracy. • And while on the subject of definitions, perhaps the simplest of all and one which may express the objectives of; the great majority, is otic offered recently by Dr. Harley L. Lutx, of Princeton University: "If you want to make a dollar by any honest means you are free to try, and if yon succeed you may keep it."

Our Factory Fighters The furloughing of experienced men front the Army to work in tire factories does not mean that our labor shortage is becoming alarming. It simply means that tire manufacturing is heavy work. Much of it can't be done by 4-F's, the aging, or women. Before synthetic rubber was sufficiently plentiful, tire factories had to lay off many men- They went, lo other factories or into service.
