CHRIST FOR ALL-ALL FOR CHRIST ttm "'Bible Thought fbr Today nrajE REWARD: Verily, there is a 1 :reward for the righteousness: verjly. He Is a God that Judgeth in the earth.—Psalm 58:11. . X TIME Ttr START THINGS. ; the people of the United States have a reputation for initiative and enterprise. lihey start things and they finish them; . TSiey have a chance now to demonstrate their ability as never before. Everyone is waiting for "business to pick up." But business won't pick up I of Its own accord. It will pick up when the desire and the determination to do something rises again in our natlonar consciousness. There are about 25 or 30 million families in the United States. This means that there are some 30 mllHon men who are actual producers. ' Payrolls depend oh construction ncti'/ity—the building and upkeep of homifs, factories and e,hterprises whiCi consume 'every imaginable product. Building has been going down sieailly' for the past several years imtli It has become almost stagnant. ' Thousands of structures are . deteriorating because of lack of repairs, paint, rotting foundations, leaky plumbing, worn oiife heating planets, crimibling chimneys and a thoii.sand and one other things which have been let go. Never in. years could repair work or new construction be done as cheaply as today. There are millions of individuals and iintlustries in this coimtry that have savings and are well able to' carry on necessary impirovements now. Starting a few million jobs, varying in amounts from ten dollars to a few thousand dollars each, would release an' avalanche of money and start the wheels' of industry.. Employment would Increase; our nation would take heart and commerce and Industry would slowly regain a normal" stride. Before long this improvement would be reflected in other nations. No amoimt of legislation or political panaceas involving increased taxation and greater public burdens, can. do a fraction of the good that the people can do for themselves by exercising our much prized American initiative and enterprise. Do; It now! < Investment and employment are cheaper than charity! CAN CONGRESS ALIENATE THE PHfLIPTOJES? Commenting upon the bill for Philippine independence passed a few days ago by Congress "over the President's veto the Register asked the question whether Congress has a right under the Constitution to give away American territory. The dcjubt which \ prompted that query apparently exists in other quarters. Commenting upon the bill the ^ew York Herald Tribune says: "The Congress has now done Its best to give away some one else's property. But If these legislators think the issue Is closed they are due for a great awakening. The nation has been slow to make its mind felt on this issue. But judging by the storm of bitter editorials which this Congressional treachery has stirred throughout the country, there Is no question oi what the reaction will be. The battle has but just .begun. "Fortunately there is a long road to be traveled before this Immoral piece.of legislation can take effect. At the outset stands the challenge of the Constitution. Able legal minds already stand convinced that Congress has no more power to alienate a dependency of the United States than it has to alienate a state or a territory. The means by which this test can be/brought are not clear. The Moros are a minority within the Philippine population who have every right to resent bitterly this effort to hand them over to alien rulers. By supreme couij decision they enjoy the protection of the constitution In all Its" broader provisions. Conceivably suit might be brought by Moro citizens to halt action un4 der this law. In some fashion the test should come, and the friends of the Philippines wiU await its decision with hope that the arrogance of the present Congress may be properly rebuked." THE SENATE COMES TO ORDER rOL 'A, KANSAS From Other Papers X NOT THE WAR ONLY. In the Boston News Herald, Sherwin C. Badger explodes something of a bomb mider the thebry that the war is primarily. If not wholly', responsible for the heavy increase In federal government expenses. Mr. Badger shows that if the war years are omitted entirely and all war costs, such as interest and sinking payments from war borrowing, veterans' expenses, and the like are deducted, the cost of government In 1932 was still $22 per capita,—three times pre-war cost. If Reconstruc-: tlon Finance Corporation funds and Federal Land Bank subscriptions: were to be included the cost would rise to $29.12. nearly four times prewar expenditures. Of course, the war aggravated things a lot. But the truth remains that'the cost of governriient was Im^ mensely and unnecessarily increased during the boom years when gigantic revenues accrued from Income' and similar capital taxes. . Governmental activities of all kinds were broadened; new departments and bureaus came inlo existence by the himdred; thousands of new employes were giveri places on the government payroll. Now income taxes have lost their potency in producing' revenue, and government is attempting the impossible—to operate on Ja boom standard at a time when the national Income of its people is the smallest In a great i many years. When" times change for the worse, businesses and individuals make necessary changes to compensate— they adjust outgo to income. Gpv- erimient must do precisely the sanie thing if (the deficit is to be conquered, the budget balanced, the national I credit maintained and the taxpayers saved from ruin. qOTTON IS KING AGAIN. , During "the first eight months of 1932 jthe value of cotton exports from; the United States Swas more than- seven times that of wheat exports. It exceeded the value of the combined exports of all American machinery, automobiles and parts, cotton cloth, wheat flour-and rubber manufactures, whereas in ibai the export value of these articles was more than double that of cotton. ; "Thes^ figures make it look as if 'Cotton were in a fair way to come;back'again as King. Incidentally, most of the credit for the remarkable record it seems must go to the (?ptton cooperatives, sponsoredto so gr^at an extent during the past two years by the much condemned Farm' Board. These cooperatives h&ve jled in a : movement toward more economical production, a better product, and more, profitable prices. They have put new "fight' inte the grower. They have shown him that he must battle in the eco- homitj wars if he Is to survive, and that his efforts will be inost effectual if he enlists in the cooperative army.; 'Early last simimer, when the political! campaign was just beginning, l.a' great hullabaloo resounded throughoiit the country because the Natioijal Cotton Co-Operative Association was paying its piriiident $75,000 aiyear. "From the figures just given it. look as if this man might possibly have earned his salary. SHOWING SPEED. Wichita Eagle: With the ratification of only one more state required to put the twentieth, or "lame duck" amendment into the Constitution, this country isn't going to miss by very much making a speed record in the matter of the modernization of its charter. The fight to get the "lame duck" resolution submitted to the states by Congress, the brunt of which was borne by Senator Norris, took all of ten ye^rs. The states are showing no such reluctance. If another state acts immediately on the "lame duck" amendment. It will have been-, ratified In some, ten and a half months. The resolution was submitted March 3. 1932. This comjjares with the ten and a half months required to ratify the anti-slavery amendment, a year and two weeks for the ratification of the popular election of Senators, thirteen and a half months . for the eighteenth amendment and fifteen months for women's suffrage. The twentieth amendment star to be accepted with more celerity than any since the Civil War except the thirteenth, which knocked out slavery. Our constitutional procMses are not so cumbersome, after all. Give the states a chance at something they want and they will accept it quickly. • • • • • • • •> • • •:• • • • • I 25 YEARS AGO ! <^ items from The Begiste^ of • January 24, 190S. • • . . <«• • • •> • • •:• • •> • •> •> • • •:• • The gas well which was drilled in yesterday evening on the Nash farm three miles south of LaHarpe for the Ijanyon Zinc company and which was first said to have a flow of about four million cubic feet, has been foimd to be a great deal larger.

How can the price of anything advance when the whole world is saying every day in everj' way that there is no possible chance for the price to advance? Wheat has had a "bad press" lor three years,-statistics showing how vast the carryover has been at the end of eich 'crop season, figures pointing out the extent to which the world has quit eating wheat, government reports of increased acreage In every country in the world. How coiild any commodity carry a load likS that? Within two weeks after the la^t of the U. S. Marines left Nicaragua all of that alleged republic was under a "state of siege'" (martial law) except four provinces. It will be interesting to see how long it be until somebody down there will be walling for the Marines to come back.
