Looking Ahead Probably l!iu worst of the uiwmploy- menl difficulty is over. Every sik'ii indicates thut tlie depression is ending. Within r, compar.'Uivoly short limn the country should be w;ll on its way back to normsil prosperily. NevertlK-lcss. we sliull simply In; asking for more trouble in the future if we fail to make, every effort to understand just whnt the depression has meant in terms of hunmn suffering. The depression itself may be cndinjr, our study of it should jnsi be beginning. In this connection, it is worth while to look :tl u sludy of the effect* of unemployment on 50 American, fatnilio?, mad; by the magazine., The Family, which is published by I lie Family Welfare Association of America. This shows just what happens in a family whose income is shut off Cm- a loin: period. "The center o[ interest in ihc« 00 household;;," says.the report, "was food —-whether there would be more or Isss of it; and work—whether there would be any at all." After a shortnge of funds compelled public r.-linf aijencie.s^ to stop aiding these families, it was found thai many of them were living on bread, potatoes, collet: ;>i!ii ivcait soup. This was especially a common diet for children. Butler, milk, u'uit and meat, bring the most expensive foods, were the lirst to bo eliminated from llu table when unemployment hit the families. A scattering of part-time jobs kept the families from act rial starvation. Their incomes, ov;r a period of months, averngcd from '§!> to ?15 a week per family. Rent and insurance were the obligations allowed to lapse. Thirty-two of the familirs were from one l» 1G month:; rent in arrears; and this was ck.-pite the 1'aet that (heir rent averaged only about ?15 n month. Xiuu families had been evicted. The three families that 'had been buying their homes hnd either lost them or had receive;! warning notices. Incidentally, there were more native- born than foreign-born i'uiiiilicv in this group, and some of the wage-earners had been highly sktllc-d workers who-e pay checks normally ranged from ?f>0 to ?70 a week. In 35 of_ the families there were two or more children. "Although no catastrophic changes had oi'turnKi," says the report, "a slow disintegration of moral and general living conditions was taking place ... Of the families forced to move into cheaper quarter.s l(i were living in rooms which had no electricity, 10 hud no K;IS and one no running water." All of this is worth remembering. Prosperity will return, in full measure; but wi. must never allow ourselves to forget just what those hackneyed words, "business depression," mean to His people who hear the brunt of it. and that intoxication with leid or the fern; of disturbance as- I sedated with diabetes may lend to j anglim pcctorls In sums people, j .There are several conditions at- 7] fecrinj the heart which may pro„:-.;: '.luce pain in Unit rejlon, hut the pain of arutina iKctoris is distinctive.

Strangely enough, if ihe northwest give:; up wheat raising or diversifies to other lines, dahy- 1ns Is Ihe most logical, in fact the only, avenue of escape.

It was only by harsh experience that a householder learned to steer clear of bad bargains and come into port with his money's worth. There were snags and shoals aplenty. Inferior goods and unscrupulous merchandising methods made the channel dangerous. "Let the buyer beware" was an accepted slogan of trade. Fortunately for millions of consumers, this condition has wholly changed in more recent years. The channel has been charted. Today advertised, trademarked goods of known value are for sale in every city and hamlet. The buyer knows he can trust such products. He reads the advertisements in his paper, clicoses the commodities he needs, and makes his purchases with the knowledge that he will get full value i'or his outlay. The advertising columns of this newspaper point the way to satisfaction. 11' you make a habit to read them daily you will save money, and save time. Advertising is your'guide io safe buying C.
