Philanthropy With a Flourish _ 1 Harry McLean, (ho unconventional "philanthropist, got back into Hie news the other day by throwing ?5000 in jhills and silver oul-of a-hotel window 1 t to the jsmjuised and delighted citizens of'Wiivdsor, Out. Not so long- ago he :~\vas'passing out money and good eheov tio hospitalised soldiei-> "I like to see people happy," is Ihn jToronlo .contractor's excuse.' J Mr.. McLean must get con.'-idcrabla .pleasuie out ot the disli ibulion, toj, '.\\hich is piobnblv a good thing. For ceitaml) he is> a misunderstood man. 'That was nppaient when he presented 'the desk sergeant at the Windsor police station \i'^h <i $5000 check "for your •burial fund." ' The ; sergeant took the check to the 'chief, with the comment that he thought •the guv was Uii7S The chief was about >to agiee \\hen he s,i\\ and recognized -the signatuic on the check. Hut it was •Mr. McLean's solvency and not the sin- ceuh of his gcneious impulse that' Irriiidc .the chief reverse the insanity .verdict ' Now," it's a sad commentary upon loin civilisation \\hcn we class a man ;hke Hjii iv McLe.ui \\ith siich x.anics as '.flagpole sitleis howlirg dervishes,-and •men who stand on their heads nl the iMetropolitan Opera House. All that Mr. \MiLean is doing ib being philanthropic with 11 swashbuckling flourish, instead of following the staid, accepted path. i Considei the Case of the late John ;D. Rockefeller", for instance. To get 'one of his shun new dimes, you bad •to^hsten to six bits' \\oith of precepts iabout tin if t Oi consulei the many gen* •eioiis gitinlh, tiusts and foundations t which, though they ITUIV do incalculable good, seldom kindle a spaik in the public imagination. But Mr. McLean's gcherousity, like Mi Shakespe.ue's quality of mercy, 'falleth a^the gentle lain from heaven. 1 And Mr. McLean never bothers fo ask • who gets wet < 111 1 : McLran is <i i ith man, and .he rmist^paj Gi'tud.i a \\liopping big lax. •But ^hal doebii t put him in a pcnny- .pinchingVmood His open handcdncKS is icfieshiiig in Ibis d,<\ of high taxes, 'high "cost of h\mg and complaints [theieof He k'io\\h that he is still more ,f01 lunate thiin most J Ye<^, it'.s a bhanie that we consider a 'man etcentuc when he is only trying to follow the scriptural directions for a 'rich man to enter the Kingdom of Heaven. Here's hoping he makes it. higher than during the same month last year. Travel is increasing, too, in spite of continued gasoline and lire rationing. This year's January travel figure shows a 17 per cent increase over that of 1043. But the January death rate was still 9 per cent higher than the travel rate. The obvious assumption is that speed and carelessness are also on the increase. So it is not loo soon for drivers to make some safety resolutions now, and keep them after the war. The traffic toll, despite its recent increase, is still far below that of pre-war lO'll. Alertness, sobriety and moderate speed can help to stop the present rise. How Come? The chief reason for wartime censorship is to keep information, aid and comfort from the enemy. Yet Brendan .Biaeketi' British minister of information, has announced that the text of leaflets dropped over Germany, written for and read by enemy soldiers'"and civilians, will not be released for publication. Is Allied propaganda so full of whoppers that the public can't be trusted to read it? You figure it out. of r*B itlrm b. tbta eulumm * utMrtkfc MiTtim-TnTf* bat b u tarart IB th. New Outlook for Arkansas , Arkansas has yot nol fur from n half-billion dollars of war money in contracts for supplies, construction nnd eraul-of-aic! for various needs made more uryciit by military conditions, accord- Ing to a rciiorl from Washington, 'I'lils lingc sum doesn't, Include payments o[ $50,000 or less for foods or fooil processing. And (mother big Item which presumably isn't figured In Ine pay rolls of military forces. . Furthermore, the cnrniiiBs or Arkansas people have been booster! by the higher.prices for everything they produce nnd by Ihe labor dcnuind which tins opened jobs for thousnnds of. women and young folks not. drawing \vnges before. Small wonder Ihot the stale is prospering as never in Its past, in .spile of taxes which rnke the citizens fore, aft mid crosswise like a skilfully driven harrow. ... , But Just as tills .prosperity came with Ihe war. it can disappear with pence. Whether It,toll or not depends to n great, extent on the eflorts of Arkansas folks themselves. We cannot really .prosper after the' war, of course, unices the rest of the nation enjoys good times. Vet a study by the stale university, ills- cussed !n Sunday's Democrat, brings out Hie fad thai regions wlilcli nrcriucc necessities, notably processed foods, and then oilier cvcry-day wanls, suffer much less from depression ;iian do regions which dcpcnl mainly on selling rnw materials. That's where Arkansas' economy has been weak. We've been mainly a supplier of wants'for Ills Industries of olhcr slalci. retlicr than producing necessities for ourselves and neighboring ir.nrkct.s. No. region over nctiinlly prospered from M'u'h a sysleni. • Now we have a bright chance lo throw off thill handicap. We've sot a start in diversified farming nnd food processing. The war has expanded our Industry, given us Ivnlnecl labor and savings lo develop our farms nnd manufaclures. This period need nol become n regrclfiil memory of n last boom: H can mark a turning point In our economic history—the beginning of a soundly-based prosperity for Our people—If we make the most of the nc\v situation it has brought about.
