S. youngsters have a "white-collar complex" concludes the magazine Occupations, nfter a survey among the you FIR folks. We can report differently at The I,eadrT office as we find more inquiry for work where the printing trade can be learned than for work In the front office — although, in all truth, no white collar would stay that way for long In either position. Perhaps the basis of this trend Is that all during the school years, the position of the "learned professions" (from an academic standpoint) are extolled while other work Is more or less listed as the things you'll hare to do if you can't be In the "clean hand" occupations. All who teach the young folks might well ponder where our economy would be If we had many more doctors, or lawyers, or teachers and fewer farmers, mechanics, industrial workers, etc. Obviously the nation would he poverty stricken if It was not well supplied by those who produce foods and things we can use. Today's empty s^ats on planes and trains are only a few months from the Insh war days when It took days to get a Pullman reservation and weeks for a plane seat. The condition reminds us that the same change can come to every business -•- even ours. Many of us. who may have attributed onr booming business to our personal shrewd busi- ru-ss judgment, may well find that we prospered only because of the war boom and that the return nf competitive times will make us scratch as In- dnstrlously as we did in pre-war days. We feel, however, that small towns of the nation have earned a new appreciation for themselves In the war years and perhaps, if their stores and businesses continue to be aggressive In their merchandising, they can continue to draw sufficient trade to remain prosperous. Rut It will be easy to go the other way and the alert business will note, and correct. Its shortcomings before Its customers learn of them. Mjrrtery Circle Snrprfcws Mr. and Mr«. Roy PeRotl The Mystery Circle and their families surprised Mr. and Mrs. Roy DeBolt and family on the DeBolt's 15th wedding anniversary Sunday evening. Each family took a basket supper.

Much of the confusion on Republican policy now emanating from the national capltol Is to be expected ns n minority party suddenly assumes the responsibilities and privileges of the majority. However, we fear that the Republicans, while commend ably throwing out much New Deal boondoggling, may also Indulge in their classic and irrational propensity for high tariffs and deflationary finance. We feel that It would be a profound mistake to cut the federal income tax to any large extent now, especially In the higher brackets (above $r>,000) ns It would aggravate further the present Inflation and cause n more severe donation when Mills county has received nation-wide publicity on its work toward the solution of its most Important problem — soil conservation — and two stories in last week's Leader told of some of this work. The Leader feels that the entire county owes a debt of gratitude to the men who have led in this work — the County Soil Conservation District officers and conservation technicians. The work of the district will add immeasiire- ably to the future prosperity of th" county and to its ability to produce food. The encouragement which private citizens — farmer and non-farmer alike — give to the work will help it to achieve Its goal of the best possible land use of all of the county's farm land. We predict, too. that proper Inml use will also give us better citizens. More productive land will bring us hettrr schools, better churches, better civic Institutions and a continually improved standard of living in (lie coming years. The Conservation District's work may well have a profound effect on the county far and beyond the paving of our soil.
