Here and In Russia Those who hold the view that the Russian lyi>e of social anil economic organization contains much that the United States might emulate with profit are fond of poiiithiK out thnt the land of the Soviets is the one important country in which there lias been no unemployment in these recent years of world wide economic depression. They usually fail to add that even with everyone Jiussin hits not been able to achieve :i standard of living for her people remotely approaching that maintained in the United States and most European countries even in these days of business curtailment and wide-spread unemployment'.' 'All Ku.*sia is at work because Russian skill, Russian equipment and Russian management of productive operations are so far inferior to of capitalistic nations that it rctjuircs the combined and continuous effort of all of her people to provide a scanty and rather primitive livelihood for her population. In the United States there is a reversal of this situation. 0 u r productive efficiency has reached such a high state of development that it ' has put some eleven millions of our people out .of work. Many of llieiu have been reduced to such circuni-' stances as to make them envious even of such poor fare as is the reward of the Russian's daily labor, and the two years in which unemployment has been widespread in this country have beyond question materially reduced the average standard of living of the whole country. Now the cure for our difficulties . certainly is not to return to primitive production methods. That would nf- '• ford a cure for unemployment, very pqssibly, 'but only at the sacrilice of all the advantages which the American people, in general, possess over the Russian or over the Chinese, Mexican or people of any other nation whore ,• production is still largely in :\ handicraft stage. What we must do is to achieve as great efficiency in the distribution of the products of industry as we have already achieved in their production. When every producer re• ccivca as his reward means sufficient to enable him to consume goods of a value, approximating that of those- he produces, allowing only an essential margin for capital expansion, our difficulties will be solved. Why We Have Wars We tend to an assumption Unit wars come bcciuisc statesmen are stupid and depraved, nnd forget Hint the real reason usuMly is (lie facl that 'vast masses of people very deeply want things which they can get only by lighting. The Japanese, for instance, arn not in Manchuria they are inherently pugnacious. They arc there bc- caiise they arc convinced that Hie fertile plains of Manchuria are vitally needed for the continued well-being of the Japanese people. All the diplomatic notes ill the world wun'L ivmko them feel Similarly, this country is objecting to their presence there, not from ;v high-minded desire In .see even justice done hut Uraiise it feels that its own vital interests will stiller if Japanese domination of Manchuria becomes complete. *i Here we have a perfect example of ihe sort of thing that menaces world peace. It isn't a situation that can be remedied by soft words. Nothing short of a complete revamping of in- ternalioiiid relationship.-; will prevent such situations from arising.

Building Points the Way A survey and fovcwisL for the building industry in llic United Slutes dur- ints Hie next year, just conipletud by the n\iiK<v/.int!, American Architect, indicates thiit tlm grail building trades are about to cincrgo from the depression. The survey shows, for instance, that fully ?1,750,000,000 is going to be silent during the next 12 months on new building projects and on modernization work. "The beginning nT the recovery period is here," says the mugiirJiic. "Building activity begins its steady, though slow, upward awing during Hie fall of 19S2." If this survey is correct, it is extremely good news. There can bo no real revival without, a pickup in the building industry; and, conversely, if the building industry revives, it can be expected to carry other industries up with it. On Sept. 20, 1918, all allied trocps registered Gains in western Europe, Americans advancing .on Melz forls, Billlsh recapturing UK fortified village of Mocuvrcs, seven miles west of Cambiia, and tlie French capturing Esslgny-le-Grand and advancing northeast, of Vailly.

"Au bon marche" . . . through Advertising One of the largest department stores in Paris is named "Au Bon Marche." Translated, it means "at a bargain—cheap." Actually, "au bon marche" indicates to the French what a true bargain docs to Americans-dependable merchandise at fair prices. When so many shops everywhere are full of merchandise on which the "price appeal" is prominent, it is necessary that the wise shopper insist upon proa- ucts of known value and proven merit. The clock that will not keep time is hardly a.bargain at any price. Foodstuffs and drug-store supplies must contain pure ingredients and be prepared under ny- genic conditions, lest they become not only cheap but dangerous. Wearing apparel at a mark-down is only a snare and a delusion if it lacks the quality that will result in wear. Wise shoppers, these days, are refusing substitutes, are weighing true worth against price appeal. They are using the advertisements in this newspaper as a shopping guide. When a merchant advertises his wares consistently, you may be sure that he is telling the truth about them. He could not afford to do otherwise, even if he so desired. When a manufacturer of national scope appeals to you through these pages, you can believe and act upon his words. ».— to "Au bon marche." Today advertising points the way to the only real bargains! v \
