Restoring Prosperity It docs not seem possible that ;my- Uiing Franklin I). Roosevelt may Kiiy can perceptibly diminish his prospects of victory, wliich arc so goad iis to np- .poui' virtually certain. Least of all, pel-Imps, are his promises that he will bring back prosperity likely to interfere willi his success. Despite bitter disillusionment we remain a gullible people. With «OIK! reason we no longer believe Herbert Hoover when he promises prosperity, but with no very good reason \ve are inclined to lend our curs to similar pledges from others. Mr. Roosevelt, as he ought to realize if he has given any study to the sad experience of the present occupant of the White House, is trending dangerous ground when he promises' prosperity. No president, no government cim create prosperity. It is the product of thrift and of industry applied to natural resources. The best any government can do is to refrain from such acts as are destructive of prosperity. If that is, what' Mr. Roosevelt l^as in mind his administration rimy well speed the return of good times, but if he is thinking of making the American people wealthy by obtaining the passage of laws he and Hit- rest of us arc doomed to disappointment. It is natural for the American people to enjoy prosperity, because we t are blessed with great natural resources, a climate conducive to productive effort, plenty of competent workers, and the best managerial and technical brains in the world. One of the chief reasons why we have not always had prosperity is that our government, in of abetting prosperity, has interfered with it by legislation which has had the effect of impoverishing :part of our people to increase the wealth of another part. Another major obstacle to prosperity is a governmental orgaimalion which rct|iiires for its support a burdensome proportion of the national income. If Governor Roosevelt, when ho becomes president, will do everything in his power to enable those who produce wealth to enjoy it, with a minimum of governmental interference and taxation, he will be doing'about as much as can be expected of him toward restoration of prosperity. -';. V OUT OUR WAY County Business '' With the prospeci that the quorum court of .Mississippi county, when it meets next month, will have a (lil)'i- cult time in finding any visible means of support 1'iji 1 even (he bare essentials of county government, (he I'ate of nuch services as the conn I y farm and home demonstration agc-nls and the county health unit appears highly doubtful. The county inu-i live within its income, and the economy ax must be wielded until appropriation;; for ttie coming year are brought within a conservative estimate ol' the revenue that will be available. Hut it will be an unfortunate thing if at this time the health, farm and home services should be abandoned. When decreased revenues make necessary [he trimming of public expenditures it seems to us that guidance may bo obtained by answering for each ilwn ol 1 expense the question, what is the rate of return to the people of Mississippi connly on this investment? Fundamental to the wealth of any community is the health of its people. Victims of disease not only produce nothing, buf are a burden upon those who do produce. The Mississippi county health unit, fiy eU'eelively com- batting malaria, typhoid fever, diphtheria, smallpox and other diseases has not only made a tremendous contribution to the welfare and happiness of individual residents of this county, but it has effected an economic saving, mea's'iirablc in dollars and cents, of many times, its cost. The same line of argument may be advanced in behalf of Hie agricultural and home demonstration agents. They have ppened the road to a better way of living for many residents of this, county and have added many times (heir cost to (he wealth of the county. Some will say thai, granting the truth of all' of this, it j s nevertheless unfortunately also true that regardless of their worth this county' ha.s no funds with which to supiwrt these agencies. The answer to that is that a private concern, even in times of ad- ver.sity, does not discontinue dividend producing departments^ Mississippi county should -find a way to maintain these agencies.
