> fiGE EIGHT' LOOKING ABEM BLTTHEVILUB (ARK.) COURIER NEWS Waacs Parade In. Algiers POST-WAR PLANS Most important industrial leaders'< in America and most big agencies in Ihe United States government- are doing; sonic serious post-war planning. .Their ideas are not! Ui complete . liarnioiiy but il Is encouraging that so many far sighted people are thinking about the country's welfare Immediate- ly'following the war because what happens in America at the dawn of peace will determine what penalty ;the,whole world, will have to pay for wai. ; ' Unlike, most countries the United States-is not In hopeless shape. Unless • the war lasts longer (nan now'secms probable we in •America; have, what it takes to build prosperity, but it will require planning^ because action will need to be quick \vlum the war ends. Our first forward stcj) must not falter; men who speak for Undo Sam must not stammer. With resolute unselfishness the united States can feed the-starving world a wliilci and still win the peace. Preparedness Necessary Factories with capacity double what factory capacity was in any year before the war, will be com- pletely'devoid of hurry-up vrar orders in a few days alter hostilities cease. Ten million fighting men': will- start "beating their swords into plowshares" when all- of-a-sudden rationing will be wash- ed'away in a flood of supply and today's : mail-power shortage will \K. . shallowed, up in a problem of unemployment. The -world's natural resources will be in reach then; productive capacity will be at an all-time high. Transportation will be faster and .'better-Hum ever before, and pe'oplc vslll have both money and credit, as well ns a long list of needs. Everything will depend on how ' peace . begins. Dissension and confusion born of greed might easily, scuttle, tho last hope of freedom this world will sec tor an age- Avarice Is Tatal Men .who work ivilli Ihelr heads, <is well as men who work with their hands, will have to know when they are well-off and learn to content ..:llieinselvc$, for much of Earth's riches will have been destroyed by the wai. After all, "rich" is a relative term. II is one thing in one country and another somewhere else: In Chins,.a few years ago when I lived there,: a capitalist (farmer) could;invest-tlie equivalent of one dollar and create a, job for another Chinese who, in tuin,.could feel fairlv prosperous on an income of a, dollai a month But in . Amcr- ic'a'v where it.itakes on average investment of $8,000 to create one job in an industrial plant, .the worker easily earns 5200 n month and often feels under-paid, , - Unself Ibh FUnning Flee competitive enterprise, the best economic .system' known to man, is subject to improvement. It lias. made America prosperous,- has made . our poorest, people seem rich by comparison with well-off folk of other lands,.but -it has not been operated without selfishness. Half, of the |>eople who .live in America (60 million of them in f932)-saw clays of needless privation; tome experienced want. Unselfish planning for post-war prosperity will .aim, to avoid llils. Real wealth is defined as investment that produces revenue. Wealth is not merely capital; it is capital doing useful .work. Unplow- c'd fields arc not wealth. Idle factories are 'not wealth. Everybody knows• : that anxious minds and idle;hands are not wealth. These are the enemies of prosperity and peace. If all (or even most) of our war- built factories can he operated by lirlvalfi.enterprise to produce things that'pcoplc want to buy, there will be markets alter the war; workmen can earn move than a living and farmers can'gcl more,than cost for what many people consume. Tlie system that made thi: country prosperous can keep il so, through unselfish planning. club members have taken (lie church grounds as IlieU- project.
