Do vacationists still send picture post cards home to friends with the traditional "wish yon were here" Inscription T We think not tor they know that their friends will do the same thing to them a tew weeks later. A moot question for future historians will be thst ot which was the most responsible for the end of the depression — the planned activities of the government or the natural initiative of the cltlienry. Just now we don't care about the answer so long as one or the other does It France, With a currency stab- ilised at less than one-fourth ot the pre-war value in relation to the dollar, wanted to hold the dollar — abd consequent trading disadvantage — up to Its present position. Because delegates would not forget selfish national motives the conference, and all future conferences on a similar basts, was doomed to failure. It is well that the recess was called. It would have been unwise to continue in some empty face-saving gesture before ending the affair because international relations would have been further muddled. And it was wise for Mr. Roosevelt, even if the language he Used was a bit truculent, to take his stand against immediate stabil- isation as firmly as he did. The world at large finds U difficult to understand a conference. It seems that the economic conference was called to iron out differences between nations as to economic procedure and to bring about a general condition ot prosperity. It is readily seen that no prosperity ls possible nationally until a fairly high purchasing power is widely distributed among the citizenry and trade and commerce, both nationally* ' • ~ ktibnally is active, * 1 -*" ^?Xv ! 3rep^S* l «0&£i««lh&S*9 The first of these depends upon the monetary policy and distributive facilities of the nation and the second depends upon the removal of trade barriers-—high tariffs and fluctuating currencies. Every country admitted that But the breakdown of the conference came, not alone because ot Roosevelt's refusal to stabilize the dollar, but because the various delegations were acting extremely nationalistic upon problems which demanded international consideration, A country, like an individual, most both give and take in its relations with others.

How closely will our great individualists permit the government to regulate so closely our activities? We have Insisted that the government cease its regulation ot our drinking habits and it is improbable that we will permit it to control too closely our working habits. The stress of the times moves us to permit and agree to many things which will seem intolerable when the economic pinch is leas severe. These are great days for picnics in the woods, Mankind is so constituted that, after slaving to provide for self and family a comfortable habitation and culinary and domestic conveniences, he delights in leaving all this behind and "roughing" it on a picnic. There the sport of cooking in the most primitive manner possible over an open fire, of eating from dishes from which bugs have first helped themselves, and keeping an open and persistent warfare between people and the native insectivora, furnishes an irresistible attraction. And well it might for mankind delights in proving his ability to cope with nature in the raw. His ego demands that be show that he can exist away from the softness and ease of civilized equipment. The hard* ships ot picnicking merely rouses the desire to battle and to excell. Furthermore, p I c n i c k ing brings out one truism often forgotten by our cooks —that hunger is the best sauce ot them all and nothing excites the appetite like an open fire, beneath the trees where nature seems at its best and loveliest. the As more and more people offer me comments about the condition ot the few remaining members of my own thatch, ft seems high time that 1 warn other yonth of tbe terrible malady of alopecia senllls — called baldness in non- collegiate circles.

(To this day t can't remember why it had to be carried out tor the fire was only in the root and well extinguished before the heavy work began; yet the fire* men and bystanders carried it all out and left it there).

Barber Eli Springer noted the sparseness first on me and attributed it to an accident in which part of the front thatch was burned off. Barber Piatt subscribes to the "migration" theory regarding the phenomenon while Barber Sidney Larsen, tbe eminent kittenball athlete, seems to have grasped the situation more accurately as he admits that it's because of tbe tremendous brain activity. -f-t-1- -My own theory, in case liar* •en's.

Mr. Roosevelt forwarded another message to the conference, this time exhorting the delegates assembled to seek a world-wide application ot the American experiment. The effect of this message, however, as immediate as that ot tbe first. • * * • Prime card given agriculture by the Rooseveltlan new deal was that of higher prices through wide crop reduction to relieve apparent surpluses. Without watting for the ponderous governmental action of the intricate farm bill, nature hat stepped in to do what Secretary ot Agriculture Wallace wants most of all —to reduce wheat and corn crops. Recently over the level checked cornfields of Illinois and the Jllsted fields of southern Iowa have marched armies ot chinch bugs, leaving paths of white, lifeless cornstalks. Whole areas were devastated before state agricultural departments began vigorously to poison and otherwise kill the Invaders. Continued drouth and burning hot weather in the main wheat producing areas have done for 'that grain what the chinch bugs did for corn. As a result of this, and continued inflation sentiment, grain markets were bullish and wheat swept above,$1 in Chicago ..years. Happy is workman who has learned to take those extra little pains which BO improve tbe finished product, who has taught himself to spend ft little more time on his work, alter he ha» reached the good enough stage. "Good enough" if never the place to stop. A little extra, ef* fort and a little more e»re will make tt so much better. An£ only from that better r«s«H the true craftsman derive person*! <wtlat*e«on v}|h, his work which psychologist* «tU the "maximum of &e §|rej» the completion of one life cy- 740, cle. We start life fairly bald, get a batch of hair, and some of ns finish the cycle before we ourselves, arc finished by losing it all or most of it, -t-t-1- Baldness changes one's outlook on lite. There is not a man on earth bald, or partly so, but who inwardly believes that he thought a little too much. On the other hand bald men are inevitably tbe Jolllest (ahem!) of the group, convivial eouls with just a touch of pity for those unfortunates who keep a well-stocked head. -f-t-1- Of course the Insh. haired camp comes back just as strongly, with that famous old egoism of homo sapiens, The bard thought theory is crimp, ed by J* W, Boehner who at 74 has as sturdy a thatch as any in town and claims to think very thoroughly on near* ly all subjects, My brother and Edw. Knight, both of whom boast the hypothyrold baldness, and Brother Charles Bryan, the governor of Nebraska who used to wear a black skull cap to protect his hairless pate, indl, cate, on the other hand, that the theory might have A touch of soundness. Dr. Raymond Sabouraud, has made a lite*long study baldness and »s now ,,„,„. without h*ir, has discovered baldness is due. to gome t but hasn't found the j ijans Friedentha} has scalps differ as to number of hairs to start with, redhead and bleUes HQ.QQO, II y»» Wlf; he«eve it better start fiojji ' ' on redheads and *$re time, and corn futures popped up to antt-trngt laws were still in existence, the state association subsided but bakers in Iowa and Nebraska announced that the Be loaf would be raised to «c so that this hard-pressed industry, too, could share in the new deal. Cotton reduction progress consisted chiefly in the obtaining by department of agriculture agents promises from growers to destroy 10,000,000 acres of the southern staple before frost. In return the grower could get from $8 to $12 for each acre destroyed plus a free option at 8c a pound on a pro-rated amount of government- owned cotton, which he could later sell at a profit; or he might take a $7-$20 benefit for curtailing the crop. • V • • Frantic calls for more and better trade organlxatlon codes ot ethics were sent from Washington last week by Gen, Hugh 8.
