These brothers, as you may re. call, announced recently that their cotton picker is at last In shape, to o to town; but they ' asked the country at large to help them find some way of putting it on the market without throwing hundreds of thousands of southern, cot to picker and, share-croppers out of work. : "How," they.asked, "can our Invention bring security and leisure f Win, toil, instead of resulting, In starvation and homeIessness? They have advanced,, several Ideas. One Is to lease the machine Instead of selling it, requiring the lessee to maintain a definite minimum wage and maximum hour scale for his workers, to abolish child labor and to rccoghUe. the right . of ' collective bargaining among employees. Another Is to use part of the machines profits to set dp a social insurance plan for the djsablcd and, the aged, and to develop a program, of Industrial diversification in the southern cotton belt.

Peter, in the throes of an . unaccustomed emotion, found himself, for once, with pity lending a sturdy brake to the flow of fair, kindly, gracious and intelligent, : but she was reserved and had the considerate aloofness of her class. She was not confiding, effusive or intrusive in any relation in her life. And she was shy.

But the point Is that there, for the first, time, we.baye Inventors p labor-saving machinery' realizing that the labor which their machine saves has got to have some' place to go and something to do when it gets therie ' ' ' ' ' ' V " ,' ':' There is something rather ironic about that term, 'labor-saving.'' Labor is "saved,"; as, we say, when some new technical process Is perfected; but II sometimes seems almost as if we should say that it is lost. Instead. The working man whose bread and butter has been cut out from under him by a whirling contrivance of steel is not UkerJ to look on that contrivance as an unmitigated blessing. ' And although our, whole, society is geared to an ever-increasing use of machines, so that it would be insane for us to try to get back to the old handcraft system, we must realist thai this "laved" labor presents one of the foremost problems of this generation. ; This machine age contains more promise for the well-being of mankind, In a purely physical sense,, than did any other age in history, If man is finally to be released from drudgery he nay at last begin to live as Cod iutended him to live, with his mind and spirit as well as the muscles of his back. But he has to go on eating while he is doing this high-toned living. A heavy responsibility rests on society as a whole when it bases itself on labor-saving machinery. The Rust brothers deserve great credit for having the vision to recognize this responsibility. iSAV his flippant talk.

The other little pigs, building less securely, had a great deal of trouble. '.Now, Portsmouth U a solid industrial city nestled down on a point of land between the Ohio and Scioto rivers. Some years ago the citizens decided to take a leaf from the smart pig's book and fivi ready for trouble. So they laid out $750,000 to build a great steel und concrete flood wall along the waterfront.
