Marrh has alrnadv hroticht many farm movps nnd thnrp nrr- morv to follow. A llttlp at- fpntlon to your npw neighbors will make thpm Hkp their new neighborhood far morp than If they werp totally Ignored. And. surprisingly pnoueh, those hPlplnp with FiKh attentions will probably enjoy the experience Immeasurably. Here's a Job which every church and organization In thp county might well undertake — might even make Marrh a "Welcome Month" as weli as a moving month. FHs advanrrment being by seniority only fnnless he works for managerial positions) there Is no nc"--d for personal efficiency goal." or extra honrs unless over-time pay pnconrages it. Occasionally wp wonder if these basic differ- pncps ran p\-pr be reconciled. Some-times we won- dr-r. tno. if union leaders do not need an entirely new philosophy — perhaps substituting in place of Fpnlnrity and standard production some driving urcp which will pncouraee workers to do better — a thins that mlsrht take away the boredom of much Industrial work. Possibly all of us would benefit if we rould realize that only by the vast majority of workers — farm, industrial, office, managerial and all — increasing their efficiency and productivity constantly can we achieve a higher standard of living. * EMAITCHESS * Last week we had the pleasure of hearing Mr. Herb Stoaker. a field worker for the rlo of Omaha, as he came to Malvern for a meeting of the Farm Young Mnrried Polks discussion rroup. Mr. Stoaker gave a very informative and entertaining talk but. WP seriously doubt if be won many converts to (he cause nf trade unionism among the young folks. Perhaps (lip chh'f renson for this was not Mr. Stoaknr's presentation but the fact that many farm folks think of labor organizations as stimulators of dis'-onterit and decreased production among industrial workprs — an obviously unfair attitude since most unions do a fairly good job in obtaining fair and equitable relations between em- ployes and employers. VP( a number of farm folk have had experience to back up their attitude toward organized labor, for they have worked in war plants or other industries and their present Judgments are based on their experiences there — experiences which oftentimes were with unions run as rackets on the great influx of new -workers. In the matter of our national economy there Is one fact more basic than any other and that Is that we cannot have a prosperous nation unless BOTH KAHMKflH and INDUSTRIAL WORKERS pet a liberal share of the national income. Too low farm prices will make it Impossible for the farmers to buy Industrial products. Too low wages will force Industrial workers to lower their standard of living and decrease their use of meat. YICT THERE f'O.VTLVIIES TO UK MUCH MISCNDERSTANDINCJ AMONG THESE TWO GROUPS. MI-. stoaker's talk should help farmers to understand labor problems. We feel (hat bo could havo helped much more if he had not taken the attitude that the CIO (ho was very critical of the AF of L) could do no wrong and if he had spent more time on the work of unions arid less on his theory that all newspapers (except The Leader to which he kindly mado an exception), now s services and radio stations sent out biased and misleading Information about labor and Industrial disturbances. We have hem hoping that a community planning hoard, made of representatives of all civic organizations, would be formed in Malvern to study the best way to develop recreational facilities. Until It Is formed we want to encourage any readers who hare ideas on recreational needs here to send them to us and we'll gladly pass them on to our readers. Incidentally, this community's recreational needs are not limited to a night club for teen- ntrcrs, Conceivably some teen-ager." even on rare occasions — want to hike through the outdoors, have hobby collections or skills, hunt or fish and do many things other than sit around tables nnd drink cokes while mouthing the gibberish which now passes for speech. This past week has most of the high school students half-awake, due to their attendance at the basketball tournament nightly In Glenwood. Their -support at the Malvern-St. Francis game was commendable. MHS students matched them yell for yell with amazing results. The G. A. A. receives a news letter every other month from the news letter editor in Ottumwa. The G. A. A. in other parts of Iowa submit news about their club's artivlties which makes it very Interesting. Most of the other school clubs are engaged in basketball tournaments and different parties, such as skating, pot luck suppers, hikes, etc. SENIOft ATHLETIC DANCE FRIDAY March 7 Is the big night everyone is looking forward to!

Finally be moved it into the men's wash room and the boys In charge of the department could restrain their curiosity no longer. "What's tho idea?" they asked him.

We were well in hand even then until Ruck Wllcox, ably abetted by someone who had thrown probably the world's slickest material over the floor, started a square dance and called out for those of us In the south frame to do something or other under, then grab our partners and swing like "••- J -.

Since the girls have been studying interior decorating and home furnishings they learned a great deal from the trip. They received Information on the selection of rugs of all kinds and rug pads. They were also told various ways of telling solid wood furniture. The next day's assignment was to write a paper from the notes that were taken and, by the looks of some of the i. I'm sure many of the girls has started on round table discussions. These seem to prove Interesting slbly It would help to have some farm leaders tell occasional meetings of industrial workers about agricultural Ideals and problems. There are, of course, some basic differences between the small, self-employed farmer and the Industrial worker. The farmer, in order to live, must strive for every possible efficiency and must disregard hours of work on occasion in order to take advantage of Irregularities of weather and growing season characterists. He must compete with his neighbors In discovering better methods and more suitable crops for his farm. probably the best example of mass confusion outside of the Chicago grain exchange.

It all seems to be the result of the freshman home ec girls. I've heard they prepare pretty good breakfasts. How about it. girls? Did you see a certain junior girl jump out of her seat and give a scream the morning? I did. I've also seen various others display their feelings in the same way. Some odd bits of animals or some such objects have a way of traveling from the lab to various other parts of the building. I wonder how they get there? Vachel Lindsay's "The Congo" is certainly offering a needed relief to the speech class in the form of choral reading. It would be difficult to find a poem that offers more opportunity to study pause, tempo and quantity to the rhythm of speech. Students of interpretation have danced to the rhythm of "The Congo." When will the M. H. S. artists blossom forth? Even Wib likes choral reading. We're hoping Donner and McClure can stay with us the rest plays have . the Speech They See what we mean?
