EDITORIAL Welcome to Malvern and The Leader's third annual Cooking School. The Leader hopes every woman in Mills county can attend at least one of the three dally sessions and believes that everyone will find something ot value each day. The Leader has done everything possible to make the school a success and enjoyable and profitable for those attending. It has deeply appreciated the fine spirit of cooperation and help showed by the business houses of Malvern and by national manufacturers and retailers. It has been a distinct pleasure to make the arrangements for the school with this friendly assistance and the interest which all are showing in it. We urge every woman to Invite others and to attend each session if possible.,We believe those attending will sense the friendly spirit of those cooperating with us in the school and the hospitality which this community extends to all who will be here. Several churches of the county are showing an intelligent appreciation of present economic conditions by seeking to budget their expenses on a "commodity" dollar. Devised by Rev. L. D. Thomas, former pastor of the Wesley Chapel and Henderson Methodist churches, the commodity dollar What Every COOK KNOWS Every cook knows that it's more fun and lots easier to do the housework when there is modern plumbing equipment to help. The new kitchen sinks are marvels of convenience and save countless steps and time tor every woman who has them. You'll be surprised at how little it costs to have an up-to-date kitchen sink installed in place of your old one. And what a difference this new equipment makes in your home and work. We're always ready to discuss household plumbing with you and to show how | easily your needs can be supplied. Oil heatiiiK, hot water heating, modern bath room and kitchen plumbing and equipment — all these make your home a better place to live in. Call us and we'll bring exact cost estimates without obligation. J, R, Garclwel! Mtt*tor IMuaiber Phone tut , : . Malveru varies with the value of farm products, thus enabling everyone who seeks to pledge financial support to the church, to pay his pledge on a fair and just basis. The effort to adjust church financing to a more equitable basis recalls the difficulties ot the early church when the famed apostle Paul, finding that he could not carry on his missionary work If he relied on the financial support of others, made tents as he preached and probably preached with considerably more zeal because of that. For zealous indeed Is he who will consistently expound his religion or politics without remuneration. While continued low farm prices are having a discouraging effect on business here in the midwest, important national Indices point to a gradual upturn. Because ot the marketing economics involved in agriculture, this Industry seems to lag behind the others of the nation In recovery, although prices now are considerably better than they were last winter. This slows the national campaign to promote buying, as It is very difficult to do that with neither money or credit. Nonetheless whatever resources are available should be used to the limit for it is just as necessary that buying start, as it is tor any other part of the recovery program to be carried out. The Leader urges its readers to use whatever buying power they may have, and suggests that they use it with local business houses. In this issue we carry advertisements of a number of concerns who are making unusual concessions to buyers. This means that buyers will stand to benefit with any buying they now do, for prices can not help but go higher later. Business men in small towns are doing everything possible to make it easy for the buyer to purchase needed goods. They are sacrificing appreciating profits and giving value far greater than ever before. We urge all buyers to do whatever buying they can possibly do now. These are times when federal aid seems awfully good to any group who have hitherto been satisfied with state aid, county aid, or even local aid. The reason is that first local, then county and now state governments are paying bills in tax anticipation warrants. Latest group to suggest that the national government aid the school system Is that of secondary education. No matter what governmental body dishes out the money, it must be remembered that it all conies from the same source — the taxpayers. Thus it would seem that what we need is not more federal aid but a more equitable tax system. We suggest that a gross sales tax, plus a graded uet Income tax. with every transaction included in both categories, would fur^ uisli the country sufficent money for all of its true govr eruuieutal functions and would distribute the burden of taxation iu the most equitable method possible. Such u system would have to jiutirely replace the present THE FEDERAL UNO BANK OF OMAHA to (s wifetov flrst uttortg&ge, long tl^e, f tt rm loans, with WtUw to P#y for fty» yeurs Uut iuterStTt 4U %.

Thus It would remove another of evils now apparent. It would eliminate confiscation of property by taxation (which has been done with Increasing frequency during the depression). It would have a tendency to stabfffte tbe monetary system because it would eliminate the vast paper credit inflations whlcb we had In 1919 and 1929. It would reduce municipal and all governmental Indebtedness because it would eliminate certain security — land confiscation. This In turn wonld force Investment money Into commerrlal channels and reduce debt service and Interest. Governmental reform Is often accomplished more by intelligent changes than mere sufTling of old methods. We recommend this thought to our law makers. Hisl&ty &f the.

After a series of conferences late In the week with executives of the steel companies and labor executives President Roosevelt appealed to the miners to return to work and cease picketing as j the operators and labor leaders negotiated. The president's position held that the coal code fully applied to the captive mines. Olie of a Et-owlnjf number of signs of the return of partisan politics seemed present when President Roosevelt curtly notified William E. Humphrey of the Federal Trade Commission that he was removed from office. The conflict was not new, the president bad asked Humphrey In July to resipn his post. Humphrey's position has been that the nature of the commission does not empower the president to remove a commissioner except for misconduct. The president's position has been that Humphrey is not friendly to the administration. The appointment must by law be held by a republican. Indications were present that the Issue would be fully tested by Hum* phrey and Republican leaders. * * • * Four of the seven persona con- National Drama Week (Note: This isn't really national drama week but I'll probably be busy when it does come, or forget all about it, so will celebrate it now). -f-t-1- To stimulate cultural leanings in the vast group of read- era (if any) of this herewith are published, for the first time, plays by that eminent playwright, Corporal Heeza- lyre.

As tbe scene opens Henry (tbe husband) Is sitting at tbe break, fast table reading his morning paper. Martha, his wife, is at the other end pouring coffee. Angel and Wilmore, the children, are eating. Wilmore: Gee, ma, these are swell waffles. Gimme another. Martha; Now, Wilmore, I'm sure you can ask better than that. Henry did you bear Wilmore? Henry: Ummm. (A sound like a stick along a picket fence comes from behind the paper as Henry takes a sip of coffee). Martha: (Who has given Wilmore and Angel more waffles). I don't know what's the matter with your father; he seems not to hear what we say, (Henry turns a page of his newspaper, folds it and again gets behind it. Suddenly a loud groan is heard from him): Oh, my heavens! Martha: Why Henry, what's the matter? Did you eat something? I'll bet you didn't take — Henry (Throws down the paper, jumps up, then picks up the paper again and with a crafty look tears out part of a page). Late, must go alright. Martha: Deary me, I wonder what's wrong with the man. What's in that paper, Angel? Let mama see. Angel: He's torn something out ma. Martha: Well. Ummm. I wonder if you'd go over and borrow Mrs. Jones's paper, WJJmore. (Wilmore goes out and In a few minutes returns with another paper). Wilmore: Here, ma, but J don't see what he tore out, Martha (takes paper and studies carefully): Why they're holding a. cooking school today- J don't know why your father tore it out. The man's actions are beyond me sometimes. I declare. (Curtain) Act II Scene; game as above. Time; That evening. The family is again seated at the table.

H. Joyce, president of the Chicago Great Western Railroad, recently. "Too many people In this country have not learned to sharpen their wits on the grindstone of necessity. NOBODY EVER GOT ANYWHERE BY WAITING. Doing something, even if you do it wrong — is better than doing nothing at all. I am reminded of a college president who says the trouble today is everybody is waiting, from college students to business executives. A lot of seniors are planning post-graduate courses for next year — to wait for better times and better chances for jobs, I'm .telling my boys not to comeback; I'm, telling „them Ito get out and hustle tbe way their fathers had to do.__ That is tbe very essence of our troubles of today in the economic world. Too many people are wait ing to be re-born with a silver spoon in their mouths. Too many young folks are just "resting up' till a good job shows up. Quite too many older ones, finding a paternal government willing to give them aid, are sitting by, accepting a dole and living off others who are bearing thus a double burden — accepting alms when they should be ashamed to do BO, and forming tbe fixed habit of becoming a "leaner." The doers of today will rule the world tomorrow. — Republican-Leader, Salem, Ind, Faith in America It is doubtful if any country on tbe face of the earth can equal Spartan courage displayed by the American people during the last three years of tbe depression Teeming millions of Asia and In dia live in indescribable poverty and squalor while their masters enjoy great wealth and splendor. But It is their life —they have never known anything else. In this country It Is different. We are of a different race, a think ing and acting people, accustom ed to the comforts and many of the luxuries of life. The great depression deprived the majority of us of an the luxuries, and millions of even the bare necessities of a normal existence. It reduced men and wpjsnen from co«psr;a live affluence to stark pauperism seared the soul of American hj wanity as has sever bees 4o»e before. Yet ia tbe face pf tWs appalling blight our people have never lost bone. Their faith Ji America and American instltu* tions has not wavered. Their trust in the ultimate ecoftowtc recovery of the country wag sublime, and that trust is bearing fruit today. » IB courage equal to that of the Spartans e{' oW, an4 in no section of the country has that course bee** » OJ * clearly demonstrates U»» lu tbe the suu shine* brighter, ae4 aur smiley »re tagejfti&g brwutor <wr» wy . uowu hu «IOM ot wttw).

The new world champions were peculiarly nevef considered as better than very mediocre before tbe middle of the regular playing season, when their consistent ability to win games began to mystify observers. * * * * A small news Item Friday stated that Henry L.
