Not Improved By Modem Age, Says Storekeeper By nOROTHV ROE AP Wamtn'i Editor Today's dial system o< automatic living, under which we get out culture, entertainment and political opinions by pushing a TV button, has improved neither the happiness nor the wisdom of the human race, 'n the opinion of Elbert Jones, aged 84. He has been a country storekeeper in High Ridge, Stamford, Conn., since the first Saturday In October, 1690. In his 62 years of merchandising, Mr, Jones !ias traveled the full course, from the days of barter anil horse-and-wagon delivery to the era of frozen foods and self service. Now, from his vantage point of years and long observation, he says: "When I first started in business *9 a week was considered good wages—and It was a six-day week and a 10-hour day. nowadays folks make 10 times as much for half the work, but I don't think they're much better off. Time Saving Devices "Now they have cars and washing machines and vacuum cleaners and refrigerators nnd radios and telephones and television sets—all the tilings to give them more time to spare. And the more time they have, the more entertainment they have to have, and the more gadgets they buy to supply that entertainment—and in the end they don't have any more fun than we did. "People used to be easy to amuse. A hayrlde or a square dance was all a young fellow used to need to have a whale of a good time with his girl—and It didn't cost anything. Now people seem to measure their good times by what they cosU-and buy everything on the Installment plan. "The way I see It. they don't have as much fun, and they owe more money." Square nance Fan Mr. Jones has been a square dancer fan since the nge of 18 but he gave It up at 80. Says he:' "I figure it isn't fair to ask a young girl lo dance with me." When he first bought the Htirti Ridge store, business was strictly by barter. Mr. Jones explains: "I used lo get paid In eggs, pigs, butter, horses and baskets. Basket- making was nne of the principal businesses In these parts then, and at one time I had 40 basket-makers working for me. I'd take the baskets In exchange for groceries and slock feed, and then I'd have to s?ll them before I could pay my illls. Em - - 12e Down Back In 1890 eggs were 12 cents alUmds \ i n 1 J poM to (S ; > ! Small ti-onder, tfhen you note the jcu-cttd emblem and self-belt trilh new long-and-ilim ktd!c.

His biggest sale* were of flour, sugar snd hay and grain, because most of his customers raised thel >wn meat, eggs, butter ana vege tables. Through the years Mr. Jones ias prospered but still likes to de dozen, butler 25 cents a pound pound iver groceries himself, and *top to chat with people In friendly kitchens.

Main Phont 9674 is th e prce too high? The dollar cost of providing Increased water supplies under current conditions will be high. Will it b* too high? It might appear to be more economical to wait for a downward curve in (he whole structure of prices and wage» before undertaking the kind of construction programs required to meet our needs. Bu( where are the signs that such a curvt is in the making?, f And how long can we afford to wait? It took j»s( one hot, dry summer to imperil the waler supply of many millions of people. Suppose next year—or the year after—brings similar conditions? Picture a shortage thai goes beyond the critical stage. New York WRS only days away from auch a crisis. Some •mailer places went through it. Picture a water supply inadequate to handle a serious fire. Picture a water supply insufficient to maintain proper sanitation. Picture a water supply no longer able to keep industrial processes functioning. The price of keeping pace with the need for water may •«em high, but what about the price of failure? One uncontrolled fire, one epidemic, a group of major industries lost 1o (he community—any of these could involve an expense beside which the price of improved wsler supplies —even with costs what they are—would hardly be noticeable. Water is essential to life—the life of a city as well as the life of a human heinp. Without wafer, a man dies. Without waler, a community faces the same fate. In I he' face of a crisis, no price can he too high. High prices paid to prevent a crisis are low prices! Blytheville Water Co.
