Scrip The federal government, (|iiite properly, demands of this mul other communities a measure of co-operation in its relief program. Where it .spend.; Ihoii.sand.s of dollars for the benefit of tho unemployed, it asks us to spend hundreds. II is riglit that we should, not only he- cause the responsibility iss ours and because we arc able to moot it, hut also because the knowledge thai our own money, in some small part at leabt, is being spent, will tend to make us critical of waste or misuse of relief iunds The scrip program of raising local relief funds is ideally devised to ob- tdjii (he co-operation of (lie entire community while placing an unfair burden upon none of ils members. All of us can well afford to do our part toward insuring its success, which in turn, through the, federal cspciuli- tuieb \\nicli will result, will contribute to the prosperity of the entire community as well as insuring adequate piovision for those without employment This has been a relatively good year, economically, for most of us. Cotton puces have been higher, large sums in government bcnclit payments have been distributed in this community, business generally 1ms shown marked improvement. Surely there are none ' bo uiifippici-iiilivc of the improved op- l)oi tunnies, that have come to them as to lefuse the very small .sacrifice which Vthole-heiU ted participation in the scrip program' imposes. The thing is simple. All that is needed is a will to help. Uuy scrip foi use in meeting payrolls and paying bills. Accept it cheerfully whc'never it ib olleied you in payment for goods and Minces. And play square with it. Make it a point of honor never to pass rt without first attaching « stamp. And insist that those who pas? it to jou lust attach their stamps. BLVTmVILLg. (A8K.) COURIER NEWS Quilling Business Kxcepl in the case of public utilities cnioying monopolies of certain essential services wo have not yet leached the point where we <iucstion the nght of ii corporation to do bnsi- T OI;K WAY ness or lo refuse to do busineus when and where it picflsew. 'I'liut docs hot muke it any Icea nil- rortiiiiale, liowevci 1 , wjieii, the e,xeiv tiso of that right results in serious injustice, as it has in Cleveland where the sudden closing of 300 Atlantic ami Pacific Tea company grocery stores IIHH thrown more than 2,000 persons out of employment. The company was involved in labor difficulties. It reached the decision to quit business in Cleveland because, or so it claimed, the authorities of that city failed to give it protection against strike pickets and hoodlums. H may have Imd ample justification, but that butters no bread for the 2,000 workcr.s, suddenly cut oft' from means of livelihood, most of whom, it appears, had nothing to do with the strike. As to where the rights and wrongs of the matter lie 'among Hie leaders of the strike, the city authorities, and the company it is foolish to attempt to say at this distance. It is clear, however, that some of them or perhaps all of them, in seeking to look sifter (heir own individual interests, forgot the larger responsibility that belongs lo all members of civilized society ami' particularly (, 0 those who, by virtue of political or economic power, arc in a position to influence tlic welfare of many oHtheir fellow citizens. This May Halt Abme One of the best suggestions as to ways of stopping the abuse of pardons and paroles' seems lo have buen the one proffered recently by Attorney General Homer Ciimmings—that the names of all politicians who ask clemency or lenient treatment for criminals be made public. It is very Imrri to think of any good reason why tin's policy should not be adopted—why, ;is a matter of fact, it should not be written into .state and federal laws. A man who asks a parole or a pardon for a criminal ought to be perfectly willing to have the fact pub, lishcd, if he has anything resembling a legitimate reason for making the request." If he hasn't, of course, 1m will shy away' from the publicity; and tlnit might well result in ;t vast shrinkage in ihe number of criminals improperly released from prison.
