Aarfn Newspaper Publishers MONDAY, OCTOBER !«, 1»*9 Await A Testing This pronounced movement toward pensions in the United States has a facet which is revolutionary. Unions insist that the pension funds be non-contributory— that is, that they be raised by increased charges against consumers. John it. Lewis and members of his union achieved this goal several years ago, when the government seized the mines, signed a contract giving the miners a pension financed by a "royalty" on each ton of coal mined, and fumed the mines back to the •owners. Now all industrial unions are insisting upon similar largesse. For centuries the politicians have been paying non-contributory pensions by charges-against the taxpayers. They applied chiefly to war veterans and certain office holders or government workers. But the non-contributory pension charged against the consumer is almost new in the world. Contributory pensions are based upon trust funds created by the people who will receive the pensions. They lay aside part of their earnings and these sums drew interest. When old age arrives the money is returned to them. Basing such funds upon exactions from consumers is less dependable. Prospective pension- en win be compelled to work full • time to keep the funds intact. John L. Lewis helped to wreck -bis fund when he put his miners on a, three-day week. There is nothing coming- in at all from mines closed by his strike. Strikes will play hob with .such pension funds. And pensioners 'cannot afford to have a depression. Another 1929 would deplete all funds, dis- rolving or greatly lessening the iacome of the aged. The government would probably be called upon to start the printing presses to turn out greenbacks^ to^keep the funds going. ~~* """ Under non - contributory pensions the high cost of living is perennial, the need of constant high consumption inescapable. Non-contributory pensions await a testing in the years ahead. Sinful One by one the country's economic observers are ticking off America's experience controlling farm prices and finding a sameness about it. There were the cases of potatoes, flax, butter and other crops and commodities of which the government was impounding or destroying portions of the output while prices to the consumer soared. Now it to eggs. There are 12,000 tons of eggs in a cave at Atchison, Kans. They are kept there in dry, powdered form and' will never reach the consumer. They were bought and stored by the government under the farm price support program. The price of'eggs is more than 60 cents wholesale in Chicago, three times the prewar quotation. ; • This is in; response to'the congressional dictum to keep eggs at 90 per cent of parity. Parity was approximately 47 cents a dozen at the farm. When the price threatened to swoop below that, the government purchasing agency began scooping up eggs right and left. Federal purchases so far this year total 59,000,000 pounds, or 2.000,000,000 eggs, or 15 eggs per capita. This year the United States government is destroying one egg for every human being on earth. There is a great deal of hullabaloo over President Truman's latest international program, the so-called bold new plan to help other peoples. "It does seem it would be possible to get this surplus food to them if they are in such dire need. It may be necessary to continue to impound a certain percentage of domestic production because ideas of the planners which run contrary to all economic laws are a failure but will not be scrapped. . But, by the standards traditionally held by this and other countries, to destroy It is downright sinful. Hot Dogfish! " What's in a hot dog? Few can answer that question. Starting from the outside, there's a bun, then some mustard, then sausage skin, and then a vaguely mysterious mixture of ground meat, and cereal, and spice, and heaven knows what. It tastes mighty good at ball parks and circuses. But from Boston; the land of the bean and the cod, comes - a report Jpresaging the greatest revolution that has occurred in Massachusetts since the great potato famine in Ireland. A new variety of hot dog, not yet named, will substitute tuna fish for the meat. Various names have been suggested for the innovation — sea dogs, fish dogs, Friday franks, and even tuna maid frankfurters. What's the matter with "hot dogfish"? It it be pointed out that there is no dogfish in a hot whatsit, what of that? There's no dog in a hot dog, either. Do You Remember?

A. The marriage license, a wedding present for his bride, a personal gift for his best man and each of his ushers, the bride's bouquet, the wedding ring, clergyman's fee, and the expenses of the honeymoon trip. If he desires, the bridegroom may purchase the bouquets for the bridesmaids, but he ia not obligated u> do so, and these are usually the expenses of the bride or her parents. Q. Is the correct form of introduction, "This, is Mr. Smith, Miss Brown," or "Miss Brown, this is Mr. Smith"? A. The latter form is correct, as the woman's name should always be spoken first. Q. Does it matter in which direction serving dishes are passed around the dinner table? A. It is most practical to pass these dishes toward the right, or counter-clockwise. Look And Learn 1.
