On-Signing Petitions The merit of it proposition lias little to ^lo with tlio number of names thiit can IJL' obtained to a petition concerning it. Twenty-six of the leading business men of a small Wisconsin town once experienced the embarrassment of seeing in print in tl\e local weekly ;t petition to cwwess, over their signatures, protesting iigainst the wearing of brassieres by women on the grounds that they were a "usurpation of mas-' ctiline rights ami a destruction of fem' inine beauty." No doubt those 2G arc now numbered among the few who carefully scrutinize sucli documents before signing them. Another classic example, cited in the current issue of Editor tintl Publisher, was (he oWnming at Omaha, Neb., of MO signatures on nomination papers for Giuseppe Zangara, assassin of Mayor Cennak, of Chicago, for a place on thu Omuliii i-ity council. The number of sii;iinlurcs thai can be obtained to almost any liiml of a jietilion is limited only by the amount .of money and effort the parties interested are willing to devote to the job. There are at present in circulation in JJJythevillc-—and presumably in almost every oilier toim in the" country— petitions endorsing the Townsend old age pension plan. Though the plan is just about, the most preposterous idea for which serious consideration was ever asked we venture In predict that its sponsors will be able to bring before congress n petition flint would fill a box car. Fortunately most con- i'rfssweij. liiioH- from personal 6,\pcr- ionce just how meaningless such.docu- ments nre. : The Townsend plan, if you are not acquainted with it, calls for payment by the United States government of 5200 per month to every cili/cn of the United States over GO years of age who baa managed to escape conviction for a felony. The only string attached is that the recipient spend his ?200 each month. The approximate annual cost would be ?20,000,000,000, which is about two-thirds of the present record national debt and nearly three lime* UIB present record breaking annual, expenditure of. the federal government. There is a vital need for the enactment of a workable old age pension .system. Hut fantastic proposals like that of Dr, TWiiseiid are un obstacle, not A help, to that end. The fact that a good many millions of American citizens will probably sign petitions endorsing (lie tiling means only that too many of us feel no sense of responsibility in such matters. Wt Grow Older Some of the influences that are affecting the future of the country arc plain and on the surface. But some are hidden, and move onward unseen. One of the latter is this fact: \\'e are getting older, not only as a nation, but as a mass of individuals. A recent report to the Association of Life Insurance Presidents indicates that the present expectation of life is 00 years. This is 15 years or ,so more than it used to be. I'Yom this President Thomas !. Parkinson, of the Equitable Life Assurance Society, drew this conclusion: "Grave consequences involving the relation of the individual to the state may follow the transfer of the balance of voting power from those under '10 to those over 50. This tendency is likely to be reflected in changed' attitudes toward spending and .saving and, indeed, toward individualism as distinguished from collectivism." Already such a change- is .seen. The widespread agitation for the Townsend old age pension plan i b ' certainly the greatest politica.1 demonstration of old people as such that, the country has ever seen. They will be a greater power in future riUher than a less, as science gradually lengthens tho life span, while the birth rate ami immigration continue to decline. No one can tell just what effect this increasing dominance of old people will have; all we know is that it is miiotly and silently taking place.
