The solution, we are afraid, will have to be nlong the line of thai worked out by Os'clen Nash, wlio, having a strong dislike for work, discovered to his sorrow "that if you don't want to work you have to work to earn enough money so that you won't have to work."

Tlie only reason Tor growing cotton, wheat or pigs, for manufacturing pins, automobiles' or electric sewing machines, is to supply human needs or desires. That human want and great surpluses of goods produced for human consumption should exist side by side is sufficient evidence thai our economics are out of gear, We have devised means of producing goods enougl\ to supply the necessities and modest luxuries of life to all of our people. We have not devised a way of making lliosc goods available to those who need them. Indolence, shiftlcs;!- ncss, ignorance and incapacity exist and contribute to the situation, but it is a shallow view indeed t» hold them in any major degree responsible for the fact that 0,000,000 American workers are now earning nothing.

There must come a recognition of the fuel that a business .structure, like a government, that docs not function in the interests of the people il is supposed to serve, is a poor thing and 'must be either changed or destroyed. AN Judge Driver said last night the business leaders of America must either provide a solution to this problem or expect serious consequences. In the very interests of themselves and their (shareholders they must realize that the earning of profits is not their .sole obligation.

An Economic Paradox In connection with Jiuigt; Driver's talk to the American Legion last night on tlm problem of unemployment, reported elsewhere in this paper, it is not inappropriate to say u word or two on the economic paradox in which we find ourselves involved under which increase in human capacity for the production of wealth seems to result in the multiplication of human poverty.

In fact, on thill basis everybody has something on everybody else, \vhicii presumably is the reason that the recent attempts to uake a national issue out ol alleged political falsehoods seem so bi/arrc. Keeping score on this game is no cinch, but it appears that the D.un- ocrals first developed the technique of using a politician's words a«alnst him.
