The Brighter Side The usort of ailvcrsily, iicconliiiK to the olil adage, art; sweet,, uvun if tliny clon'l, sucrn .so at llic tinn\ In llu- same way, the extremely imiilwanl btisincs- depression of Uiu present IIID- mcnl is doing Ihe country a t;owl di-al of good, although the man who hasn't hail a job for six months may doubt it. AfLen. looking into the troubles arising from industrial sUigii;{liun, the Twentieth Century Fund, of New Vor!;, lias concluded that philanthropic or- ganizalion.--, c:in, no longer satisfy Uicm- stilvci with meeting needs i\s they arise; .instead, they must realix.t 1 thai their first obligation ia to ralucc tlie need for philanthropy, and that they must do what they can to help adjust our business and industrial organ Nation aireonliugly. ' In ita animal report, just issued, the association remarks: "Insofar as Die philanthropy of today can assist h\ the solution of our economic problems, it. can contribute more fundamentally than ever before to the material and, spiritual welfare of the individual—which has always been the'object, of intelligent giving. Only by such basic improvement, in fact, can the need for charity ultimately be reduced." Now this may be nothing more or less than plain common sense, but it is a new way for a philanthropic organization to talk, and it is indicative of Uio,L'lia](g<3l public attitude thai? lias (lovcloi>cil since tiie depression began. People are beginning to realixe that something fundamental must be wrong with our economic outer if a depression like the present| one can engulf it, and people arc beginning to insist that the delect be set right. The nation is not going to be satisfied much longer with a process of muddling through. If we have an economic system that produces periods of distress every few years, \vc shall insist that the system be changed, instead of being content to devise relief measures after the damage has been done. We shall continue to be philanthropic, but—as tlie report of the Twentieth Century Fund ixmits out—we jhall face the fact that philanthropy, by itself, is not enough. This changed attitude, which is be- coming more evident day by day, is important. Tlie jiulf-.'-'iilisl'iiclion of the past half doxen yeaiv, has done us a great, deal of harm. It is time that we got into a different frame of mind. —Bruce Catton. FRIDAY, MAY 29, 1931 | SIDE GLANCES By George Clark An Unsatisfactory Solution The disposition made by the county board of education of charges of illegality and fraud in the recent school election may have been the only decision the board could maku under the law, but that docs not make it any the less unsatisfactory to those whose interest in ,the matter is primarily an interest in honest and properly conducted elections. According to their own statements members of the board hail evidence of- illegal voting mid indications of actual fraud from a number of boxes. The action, taken by the board completely disregarded, except in the case of the Sbawnee district, the really vital wrongs which are .-aid to have occurred, and took cognizance only of a technical omission of proper certilica- tion in tho returns from four boxes. It is said that without a formal contest Hie board lias no authority to do more, that no one but a defeated candidate can lile such a contest, and that in. the unwillingness of a defeated candidate to do anything about it the board bus no choice but to certify the result.-, even though it is aware ol' irregularities, illegalities, or actual fraud. M'o will have to take the lawyers' word that that is the situation. But it is a bad situation. It permits an evil by denying a remedy. It leaves cili/ens without recourse when their rights as duly ([inililied electors are disregarded. !</,•$'$ \ ^/UfrW'J ,'.s;*W, Scientific Handling of Foods Assures Safety from Disease BY »K.
