Restore Confidence to All and Recovery is Assured Once inuix! the doclor.s have galli- crcci by the Iwlsido, and this time their prescription ! scoms lei be that nature must 'be allowed to t:il<u - it.s counc. Specialist U'diiai'il i>. A.vres, the Cleveland Trust Co.'.s famous statistician, reports bluntly: "\Vo have enormous shortages of goods and buildings needing to be niitde up, millions of idle workers ' CHKOI- for jobs, and billions of unused credit seeking employment. "Always heretofore (but combination has; produced prosperity. This lime lhu bnrrim- blocking the way arc of our own mukiiiK. They are not natural ecoiwinie barriers, but artificial political ones. The ([iiestion is whether we as a nation lutve fliu sliimina of character to remove them." » * v Simultaneously, President Ali'rcd P. Sloan, Jr., of Oejiei';il Motors, remarks that the. NHA is nothing but a scheme of "poverty for all," and that the country is turning away from a belief in regimentation to a now om- lidi'iKx 1 in the 'old pioneer virtues; and he contimtes: "lien are becoming increiisiugly aware that the .strongest iiislnimciiUil- ity of revival and reconstruction is the existing system of free enterprise." These remarks by Messrs: V Ay res and Sloan do not/Maim alone.' They are made against a background of similar statements by other industrialists and economists in recent weelw; and they indicate pretty clearly a widespread conviction on the part of business and industry that now is the psychological moment to begin a. great revival, if only people will keep their hands off the machinery. » * » And right at this point we encounter an odd thing—the cross-currents sels up by two opposing lacks of confidence. Business lacks confidence in the administration's willingness to keep its hands off and let the profit move have a fair swing, and John Citizen has not entirely regained his confidence in those great financial powers which must sUml (jack of «ny'busi- ness revival. Further-more, it is this second timor- (ARK.) COURIER NEWS OUT OUR WAY oiisum—horn of the memory of Instill and Wiifgin and J||tcjlicll and the others—which causes the administration to do those tilings which undermine I)u4ino»s's confidence. Need this create n permanent stalemate? Not at al], The ordinary win will bo perfectly willing to give business (he leeway it asks once lie is convinced that the game is going to be run in a fair .manner. The full restoration of his confidence is Uic important issue. Once that is done, the rest will follow in natural course. —Bruce Cation. In Support of Business The coming year ought to be a good one for advertising—and, by Unit token, it ought to be a good one for business generally. Donald H. Richberg, NUA chieftain, has indicated Hint the government will adopt no policy which would hamper advertising. Advertising costs will not be included in compilation of those basic prices on which the NRA framework rests. If a business man can increase his profits by an energetic and intelligent advertising campaign, the .spoils are 1'tu'rly his. H is. a truism that advertising is the oil which lubricates the business machine. I\l>. Kidiljcrg's position is an assurance that Uncle Sam will do nothing to cut off the lubrication. Tho result should be good profits for business men wise enough to take advantage of their advertising opportunities. ' THUHSDAY, DECEMBER' 27, ' ' Riding to Prosperity A new picture of improved economic conditions is given in figures just compiled by the Travelers Insiirancu Co. These figures show that automobile registration in the United Slates in IM't is running close to the all-time record, and that gasoline consumption in near (lie high mark of a few years "go. For the first time since 'l930, ear registrations are up—to belter thnn 25,000,000, a : 'gulit of approxi-" mutely 6 per cent over 19.33. Gaso' line consumption, also is up about, (3 per cunt, is the jirst gain in that field' since 1031. Incidentally, the increase in auto registrations shows a rise of not quite 5 per cent, in private passenger cars and of more than 0 per cent in commercial vehicles. All in all, this is pretty fair evidence that things iiro getting better. More people arc driving cars now than at any time in four years. Thai looks as if somebody had more money than he did have.
