' There's no valid reason why all the rest of u^ can't learn the same lesson. And there isn't any other way of making our present kind of society work satisfactorily. —Hruee Cation. SIDE GLANCES By George Clark Regulation of Profit Motive Essential When Nicholas Murray ISiitler, president of Columbia University, warned the nation the other day that our (society is going to disintegrate unless we find some way of subordinating the profit motive, he touched on the key problem of this difficult and perplexing era. It is u peculiar situation that we are in,, these days. We live in and by :i social set-up which depends for its functioning on the motive power supplied hy the lure of profits. By and large, this set-up has worked pretty well during the long years of our history as a nation. We don't propose to give it up; nobody yet has succeeded in convincing us that anything we might try in its place would bo even half-way satisfactory. • -•• ' 1 • Yet">ve face the uncomfortable fact :hat the very force which keeps this machinery functioning—the profit nio- :iv&-*-is a force \y.hich. can. .wreck the \^_ r vh.olc:b,uj=|ness unless we line' some way ^. of regulating it. » » * Part of this regulation can be applied by law. A good part of it, however, must come from a changed mental attitude on the part of all of us. . We need to realize that wo do the .job we have to do, not only because ; we £el paid for it, but also we are rendering a service lo our fellow citizens. That's a notion to which we have given a great deal of lip service in the past. Unfortunately, we have stopiied there. We quickly lose sight of our ideal when the weight of dollars in the other pan of the scales gets too heavy. And yet this idea that the service one renders is more important than the money he makes is no Utopian concept. We needn't despair of making it a working rule for every-day conduct. There already arc some callings where it is accepted and enforced fully. « * * . There is—to take one example—the medical profession. A doctor could increase his income, if he cared to, very easily, by performing a few anti-social acts. But doctors have learned that this idea, of service to society can be a real, living thing—an ideal which a man One Kind of 'Honor' The U. S. Government is trying to collect $0,375,000 from some 20 New York banks in connection with the collapse of the Harriin:ir. National Bank and Trust Co. The Harriman bank begrin staggering a year ago. It was allowed to remain 01*11 because these 20 banks, us members of the Clearing Association, promised that they would not let it fail and agreed to assume its deposit liabilities if it was nimble to weather the storm. hast March the bank closet! its doors. And now the 20 banks say they will not pay. Their guarantees, they protest, were given "in a crisis ami without extended consideration of the technical formalities involved." Having had plenty of time to examine those formalities, they now conclude that they cannot pay the money they promised to pay. Some of these bankers, doubtless, were men who protested bitterly that the government's departure from the gold standard was a violation of a solemn promise!

The Right View It would be a good thing if successful candidates for public office everywhere could adopt tlie attitude with -which Fiorello H. LaGuardiii assumed his duties as mayor of New York. Mr. LaGuardiii announced bluntly that he was not going to try to be "a good fellow." "An elected public olficia! under our form of government must be ungrateful," he said. "I have many friends who worked hard for my election. I cannot appoint them to office, because they don't happen to be fittod to hold it. You can't be a good fellow and a good mayor." Here is most excellent common sense. If more mayors had the same idea, our municipal governments- generally woult| be run with a great deal more of efficiency and a great der.l less of expense.
