This reemployment will not be considered as altogether desirable by a certain percentage of the pupils. The season is normal again. Nearly as many persons fear we are about to have too much rain as there are those who are worrring about the continued drouth. Certain large store operators in the cities of the nation have accused small retailers generally of "chiseling in" on tbeir business and thus violating the purpose of the KRA. This comes from the same persons who, in the past few years, wrangled unfair price considerations from hard pressed manufacturers and jobber* Itors In the mad effort to cell for less, Small stores and retailers are certainly not attempting to defeat the purpose of the NRA or to offer unfair competition to any other group. It should be remembered that meet small stores kept their full supply of labor throughout the lean years of the depression, choosing to divide what income was available rather than to throw more unemployed on to charity. This was while many large organizations cut payrolls every possible war, j- And we'll wager thai President Roosevelt will find far more real help in the great , number of email i?tor§ operators than he will from the big merchandising organizations of . JtJW touniry. He will find them " Veady to actually put men to work and increase payrolls whenever at all possible, even though it means sacrifice. i*rge stores will do well to follow the attitude of small store operators, rather than to attempt to use the NRA to selfishly injure competitors. A new third political party Uttle Things at Uttle Co»t Make a BIG DIFFERENCE Perhaps you've long wanted some little plumbing convenience but feared that the cost would be too great.

Goveramental erpeEw. it is proposed, will b* paid by profits from the banking trf- tem which will be entirely state owned. It might be possible that such a plan could be worked out. Certain it is that the present tax ejTrtem seems especially burdensome on apricnl- tsr* and discourages, toy heavy taxation, the ownership of hornet, farms or other real property. But our government might find it»elf entirely without fund* should it have to depend just now on the profits from banking. On the other hand, we believe that everyone should pay some form of tax directly. To pay taxen, if they be not too burdensome, stimulates Interest in government and makes the citizen more watchful for good government. Direct taxation constitutes a healthy and necessary check upon government by making the taxpayer more critical of the person whom he elects to spend his governmental money. The possibilities which lie in a combination of a gross Bales tax and a graded net income tax should be thoroughly studied by every penon interested in good government and a better form of taxation. Such a system is direct enough to bring every citizen in direct tax contact with his government, It would be The Vacation P«rf«* So jsasy vacation plan* nave bw& made sBd lost this Rammer that, as tin? reason eufis. it is well to rrri«w to* hopes and em- bit Son* sad disappointments and failure*.

Both habitually go north and fish in the limpid aters of Minnesota.-lakes. This year Markei motored back east The main feature of the NRA program, and the one vital thing which depends upon its success, lies in increased buying. President Roosevelt does not want men to go to work or payrolls increased, simply because it would be a fine thing alone. But be wants more buying power BO that more buying will be done; so that there will be a greater demand for manufactured goods, for meats, for grains, for farm produce generally. Be wants, in short, an increase in consumption so that the wheels of trade will keep the wheels of industry turning as they normally do. It is possible tor every citizen to take part in this fea* ture of the NRA. Buying now the things that are needed is |ust as necessary and patriotic as the hiring of extra employes and the increasing of payrolls. Increased buying must st*rt the swing of the business cycle hack to higher prices for farm products and the resultant increase in buying power, , The season of family picnics is at band, These enjoyable gatherings are being held all over the country «ad relatives who have not w* Q each oth*r for a y«ar or longer are r»- n«*ing Wwufcbjni and satoy- log that fast tupping t«*u[r« of American life — family soil. darity. *ft*r all, «r« BJM> *»y ui*.

Although the processing tax to finance this will not be effective until Oct. 1, the plan started almost too well and exceptionally heavy receipts were noted at ail major marts. Before the end of the week market handling facilities were swamped and a recess in government buying was ordered, with the probability that it would be resumed the. first of the week. Result* of the buying, its sponsors claimed, would be not only the bolstering of farm purchasing power but a heavy increase, of from 15% to 30%, in- hog prices for the coming season. * » « » While the directors ot the NRA were planning a week of concerted publicity and frenzied flag waving to arouse mass enthusiasm for the already not very si- jest Sine Ragle they began to re- eeive the first Intimations that the biggest imprwdon*.

I am glad to know that you realise your opportunity to help create correct views. Yours truly, C. M. Rice. The term, "parity price," as used to the new farm act, means • price for farm products which for a crren quantity will purchase as much in goods as the equivalent amount would in the period from ItlQ to 1814. If the price* of thing* the farmer has to buy go higher than they were during the mO-lM4 period, then the price for wheat, for example, will need to be higher; than during me-m4. ire arousing Instigators of'nob Jute and intolerance.

The principal effects of these! unfortunate developments were announcements that local committees were not to be police authorities and that the Blue Eagle was not a dictator; adherence was not to be brought by any form of coercion. Complaints were invited, to report all manner of abuses in prices, or eva» sion — and, though in this instance the General spoke wtth customary gusto of "chlselers," his language was curiously tamed in his statements to the press.
