First Claim on Road Funds t- Evidence is accumulating that the chief obstacle to a solution by the approaching session of llu: legislature of the problem of refunding stale highway and road district bonds will not:.|ne difficulty in rU'dinr/ sufficient revenue to meet the demands of the bondholders, but rather will involve the problem of conserving the available revenue for its legitimute UKB. There are two classes* of obligations which have Mrst moral and legal claim upon highway revenues. These are the state revenue bonds, secured by a pledge of gasoline tax revenues, and the bonds of the road (1'stricts which were taken over by the state under the Martineau law. The first m u debt the state cannot esi'iiiie. The second is the .strongest kind • of u moral obligation. For tiic state to permit these bonds to fall b.&ck upon the lands of thu districts which issued them would not only mean ruin to thousands of home and farm owners, but'-woujd involve a repudiation of a solemn pledge upon which the whole plan of state highway construction was founded. The Marlhitau law provided roads for the unbonded areas of the state. It provided little in the way of road construction foi the bonded 'areas, but it did promise them relief from taxation-.-for.- the roa'.is they had built themselves. The road building part of that 'program has in large measure been fulfilled. The bond payment part of it remains riii obligation that must not be repudiated. There is no sentiment in favor of such repudiation. But there are .strong demands for the refunding by the state of additional bonds, issued by local districts for the construction of roads, .bridges and nity streets. It would be a splendid thing if state revumies were such as to permit the working out of an equitable plan of relief for such districts. But they should bo handled separately. The first duty of the legislature is to provide for th? state and Martineau law road district bonds. Once that is -iccomnlishcd, if money is available, the demands of these other districts may properly receive consideration. But let their claims remain . in ; the background until the main issue is disposed of. OUT OUK WAY Production Problem Still to Be Soloed Most of our energies today are devoted to the immediate problem of recovery. To start the wheels turning again, to,put idle men to work, to set money flawing through its old chun- n«l8—theae mitke up a colossal job, Until it is accomplialied, no one has tim,e to think of much else. But it in worth remembering that back of it there lies still m.other problem; one \\hkh took sliane before the depression began, iiml which will be mound to plague us long after thu depression is over. U is simply the fuel that this efficient and mechanized age continually is finding ways of using fewer men to make and do more things. "Technological inicmploynitnl" is tilt lengthy name Hint hns been given this development. Ten men can do a job today that would have taken 30 men a decade ago. Tomorrow the job probably will be done by live men. That's all there is to it. • • * But if the problem is stated easily, it can be oxtrnoKimariiy puzzling. Every modern business operates under the necessity of : ;'eing as ef- lic'ient as possible. It has to do what it does In the quickest possible IVIHII- ncr at the least possible expense. If it can find a machine to do the work that formerly was done by a dozen men, it has to install it. If it can arrange its operations so that one man can do what two used to do, it must do so. Temporarily, us a means of reducing unemployment, \ve lu>.vc made certain arbitrary moves to halt this process. The federal railway co-onlin- ntor, for instance, has relVained from instituting various con.ioiidations in our railway set-up, because to do so would throw men out of work. For the time being, we probably can continue to swim against the title in this manner. » » * Rut this simply is dodging the problem. Eventually, when fu!! prosperity lias returned, we shall be forced to Iiml a solution. The task wou't be easy. On the one hand, we aim to make it possible for every man who wants a job to find one. On the other, the very nature of our productive machinery tends to whittle ckwn tho total number of jobs. The-biggest single pu/zlu of the modern age is- apt to be the task of harmonizing those opposing trends. Compared to tliat task, thii job of getting out of the present depression is apt to look almost easy. —Bruce Cation. | SIDE GLANCES By George Clarkl CHURCH EXCUSES ft CM*. w, Well, sir, If thinas keeps going on aa they have been:there Is no telling where It will end, or Ju»t what win happen. My son-ln-Jaw and hired man say the-je arc so many letters and so many codes that they hardly know one from the other.

The fnct that a man works with his hands is not positive proof that he docs not think. I am informed thai there are teachers in our public schools who read nothing in the daily paper but tl-.c sport page. They are probably specialists in play. I would like to rrave also specialists in farming, carpcntcrirj and other lines of endeavor, domestic science and the care of chiidrcn in the home, in fact, in ail lines necessary to a full life. U is a sad sight indeed to sec a farmer who 1ms a smattering of Lalin, walking four miles to have a plow .sharpened, or a sweet graduate cooking her first meal for hubby, not knowing whether to put in the salt, or soda first when making biscuits. More important now, I think, is the matter of character building to enable as to enjoy more fully the Ne-.v Deal. In the future, in this New Deal, the graduate will not bo asked what marks he made in astronomy or trigonometry, but will be asked can you build a box or something, can you run this macliir.c or farm or factory.
