' The 'Villain Machine Actually a Friend \Vlutt \vu arc gutting into right now mny lie another depression, ii Ilitrc- bitck Of the old one or just :i milil "seasonal recession," but it is a pretty KUfc Ijet tiuit licfoi'c long iinmuone will' be • standing .up in mucting to blame it -.ill an that old villain, Tho HlHchine. The indictment, is familial 1 (o all ol 1 us. Work 'thai Used lo IMS done by human hiihils. is itohc nowatiii.vs by m;i- cliines. The, liinulfi arc idle, and the man who is Attached lo them is on • itobbily'ti .payroll. 1 Consequently he is Hot in the market for the (jooilH the machines produce; consumption . fails to keep up with demand, and every so often we get into the direst sort ol 1 mess. But simply to restate the old indictment gets us nowhere. Old Jfiin Ma- chjiic has liccn ill .court pcrindicatly for aljqilt a -decade - now, and no one lias <iny very. clear idea about what, if iiiiylhinx, should be done. The one -. certainty, is that he is here to stay nnd that we might just as well make the best of him. And since that is true, it is worth whilo to have a look lit Hie other side of the picture, That may help us to 'understand that our salvation lies in -.•exploiting the..machine to the very ut- . most lather than in any. fruitless attempt to turn the clock back. A' little booklet which, shows the machine's "'.rating-'on '(he ciTdil'Usde of* Die ledger has jiisl !>ca.ii, .prvdmied by the National Machine fool Guilders' . Association. The booklet invites yo« to go rijrlil down .the line in your own home and sec how Ihc machine has made life easier and less expensive for you. The ; kitchen,, for instance; it is inlinilely handier .than it was in grandmother's clay, and it is the scene of far less drudgery.-'Why? Because of machinery. . About a dozen years ago the nation was producing some 200,000 electric refrigerators a year. They sold at about S^IQO apiece. Today, .with production stepped up to 2,000.000 a year, the. average price is ?! u ;!—am! you get a better refrigerator. Look at the washing machine, in 3921 the average washer cost SM2; Ipllay's machine, which is much bel- ter, costs aronn:! ?G5. Or go out in OUT OUB WAY and inspect the family nuto —and, as you do, reflect that 30 years itjjo the auto was a loy for the wealthy, whereas today the average uulo- owning family hits an income of about SoO a week. In that same period of time, incidentally, the average wage in the auto industry has risen from 25 to 80 cents an hour, and the number of auto workers has jumped from 80,000 to 400,000. Now these are not exceptional cases. The same sort of thing in true all along the line. The machine ago has made Ihe thingr, we use'cheaper, bettor and more plentiful than (hey wen; a general ion aj;n. And our troubles, perhaps, bave I'oiWL because we have not gone fur enough with the muchinc; not because we have gone too far. Abundance, cheapness, use—our salvation lies there, somewhere, instead of in demands that the machines be restrained. Pusir On DIMUM II i:i interesting to note that mass inoculation of Americans in an effort lo eradicate pneumonia was discussed . the oilier day at a conference of niedi~ eu.1 experts ivilli Dr. Thomas J'arnui, Jr., .surgeon general of the U. S. Public lloallii Survice. 1'robably nothing of llic kind will actually happen—now. Hut the mere fact that the proposition is being discussed Is a most hopeful indication. The- new serum, which is now being given lo 300,01)0 CCO boys, must be giving strong indications of high value. Next lo hoarl. and cancer, pneumonia kills more Americans than any other disease.

Kiflht of the tellers were an.'«•; to a long classified ad- viulisemenl which he had mailed lo New York newspapers a month ago. Of these, one instantly cx- ciled him: "Dear Dr. Barry: You have advertised tor a partner to explore the ancient elilV dwelling on your ranch. That sounds great; I think 1 am the partner you need. I will leave New York day after to- moiTow, nnd jo should reach Blanco Canyon, Arizona, by Tuesday, according to the schedule. 1 note your warning that we •"'ill be isolated in a wilderness, miles fi-om any town.

I had them investigate you before writing.) Also I expect to do some of: the work. I mean, something besides just putting up the money. I know a little nboul archaeology already. And I'm reading books. You can investigate me to be sure yfiii are satisfied as to my financial laling. (My lawyers Paid you would probably want to do that.)

"We'll need a cook," he reasoned. "I'll go see old Three Horses." Three Horses was am Indian who seemed to have lived forever, and who loafed eternally now around the village of Blanco Canin. He was wise Jn his way, "Need good cook," Bob Barry explained, patiently. "You ketch- um me good cook, Three Horses. Savvy? Cook beans, bread, meat, everything outdoors. Me go long camping trip. You savvy? You send me Indian who can cook white man's grub. All right?" Three Horses wouldn't be rushed. He had lo be primed with a cigar, a bag of candy, and the jauntily around his collar.

He'd have to wait until next Saturday now, and he had been thoroughly aroused about it all. His face turned long in disappointment. But then the lor.e passenger, a girl, came up to him.
