' ' 1!l U.S. Wealth Consists of Goods, Not Figures After spending six years in a frantic efTovl'.lo attain recovery this nation now seems to be worrying for fear that it may be' recovering too fast. Chairman Eeclcs of the Federal Kc- serve warns that we shall have trouble it' prices ami wages go on increasing too fast and too far. Secretary Wallace- follows suit with a similar warning, and is followed by Secretary Roper. Secretary Wallace summarizes the danger very neatly: - "There is danger from business men, in search of profits, cutting down production to a point thai is bad for the general welfare. 1 "There is (lunger -that labor, in search of higher wages and shorter hours, will restrict production to'a point that is bad for the general welfare. "There is danger of agriculture, in search of higher prices, culling pro- duclipn lo if point that is bad for the general welfare. "If all three worked together, they would get more and more money for less and less goods." - 3t would be perilously easy for the natipn to step off into this spiral—if, .indeed, it has not already done so. And perhaps as good a way as any to fortify ourselves against it would be to* relnemuer just what iljs that.con- .stitutes wealth,. from the -.national ^ slandjjoinl. ''"'""'The nation can be iusl as poor in an era of high prices and high wages as in an-era of low ones. For it is nol the figures on the ledgers lhat make national prosperity; it is the bulk of the country's production of goods. It was recognition of this little fact, probably, that explains t\ie early opposition to the NRA and AAA programs. Everybody realizes that the farmer had to get higher prices. Everybody realized thai the business man had to sell his goods at a profit. Everybody realized that if the working man didn't get decent wages, he could not buy the things business men aiul farmer were producing. Yet balanced against Ihose facts vias the inescapable fact that 'the na- lion's wealth consists of the things it produces, and that the way to increase its wealth is to increase its production, nol. to decrease it. 0(1"- •hand, one would certainly say thai a nation which ttirnSi out necessities and luxuries enough lo supply 100,000,000 people is considerably .wealthier than one which produces enough for only 1mlf Hint number—regardless of price tags. Jnst how to regulate Ihose price tags so that the individual producer can prosper and Ihc country as u whole can increase its wealth is a man- sized problem. We have been pecking away at il since 1030, or thereabout, arid haven't solved it yet. Bui solve it we must, before long, if we are lo avoid disaster. The Senate Hour There arc occasional jewels of humor and eloquence in congressional speoAjlics, Dill this oratory, in the main, is so uninspired Hint the book in which il is printed has a reputation of hcinjf dull almost lo the point of anesthesia. Now il is revenlell Unit radio machinery mny be erected in the Semite so Unit Ihc proceedings of that august body nmy resound through every home in the Inncl.. This .should come UK a distinct body blow to the mid'weslcrn inventor who, a few days ago, announced an invention that would benefit all insomniacs. :'lt was-ii sort of radio device which, when dialed prop-, crly. emitted a constant note guaranteed to usher hearers into the Land of Nod. What good viii it do him to work further on his invention when, by tuiiing in on the Senate hour some near day, 'everyone may enjoy the same soporific he'nelits? Ambitious Aim According to a new item, a live- man mission from Parliament' has just entered the United Slates to learn something; of the way in which Uncle Sam is handling his problems. The subjects in which they are primarily intereslcd, according to their spokesman, are the farm-to-city trend, conservation'of natural-resources, unemployment, and America's attitude toward Communism. They intend lo make a study of all those subjects, mind you, by April 1, when they will return lo England. It's rather hard to understand how a body of intelligent men can really believe they will gather any worthwhile background of these complex" American problems in lhat short a time, and yet they emphatically deny lhat the objecl of their mission has nothing to do with war debts. It's all rather puzzling. SIDE GLANCES By George Clark 6y MAillE BLIZARD, © I?J7, NEA Strvict, Inc. "S)ie':liii§''ii;hervct- Every time she calls him up.sue asks him to'see: if I'm lislcning in."
