Use Cotton ;;;', Casoii J. Cnllaway of La Grange, Gn., ;';; • president of the American Cotton JUan- .'"" ufactdicrs association, has asked siouth- • '• urn mills to co-operate with cotton pro'; (iuccrj by pnyins for an iidditional ; • seven"pounds of cotton in bales wrap;'.; -pctl in cotton. • ' • H is scarcely conceivable that the ;;;: mills will fail to go this far in su|i- • •; port of the movement/ for increased •'•• cotton consumption. It will'cost them • nothing, for a 500 pound bale, gross '••••'- weight, .wrapped in cotton, ,has seven ;^r-pounds more of lint than "hiisji '• ^T-.pound bale wrapped, in jute.. .-'" more experiments have definitely, shown ". that, cotton wrapped in cotton arrives ..;.! at consuming establishments in bet' ter condition than does cotton wrapped in jute. .The economic salvation of cotton • ""growers depends in. large measure un". .: on the development of new uses for i ' cotton. The grower has the primary .' '"interest, in such a program, and to I further it he ought to insist not only ' that his cotton be wrapped in cotton, • ;• .. but. that the sugar, flour, meal, feed, see<l, fertilizer and other commodities ; ' tliat he buys be delivered to him in ; cotton sacks. : In some instances cotton containers .are slightly more expensive than those of jute, paper or other materials. But '/.. ^the southern purchaser ought to bear ; . in mind that when he payi\ his money .; for cotton he: is, in effect, putting it back : jn his own pocket' while the • . .money he jpays for other materials , • • goes elsewhere, often beyond the bor- ; "" . ders of the United States. For, as a mutter of fact,,; -ought'to be sliced thicker any- .way. Few liousewiycs realize that 'Jiani,< tp be as'.-.ijucculent and delicious as nature intended, must be cut thick -7-anci the. restaurant cooks who know tin's could be counted on the lingers of one hand. But. it should. A thin slice of ham is ai( abomination; a thick and juicy one is something for epicures to dream over. A Record of Carelessness The automobile is generally .supposed to be responsible for most of America's fatal accidents. However, a study just made by the National Safety Council shows that home accidents in 1930 caused-nearly as many deaths as autos —30,000, to be exact, as compared with 33,000 traffic fatalities. Most of these accidents occurred through carelessness. Falls were the leading cause; burns, scalds, explosions, asphyxiations, improper use of poisons, and cuts ami scratches follow in the order named. In some ways this is a more dismaying record than the auto traffic toll. The automobile is relatively new; deaths oihjlhe highway, however deplorable .they may be, are not exactly surprising. But home accidents! If we can't-'take care of ourselves in our own homes we must bo becoming n singularly careless and clumsy race. V~ Ld the Ham Be Congressman Cyremts Cole of "Iowa ;."."_. averts that bigger and thicker slices ';.'.'. . of ham will menu a return of pros•"•.7 perily to the livestock growers.of the ."- country". .;, If everyone", says the congressman, ,.:',';;••; would only slice his ham thicker, much '-\-l' f -- more ham \vould he consumed—and the '•_>V.. grower of pigs would I'nul an increased • ;;;-v'- demand for his product. ,-.--•.-.,. All of this sounds quite reasonable, . : ;"f~ ; -v-and. ivo are for it—but not solely ue- .- -,- : ; cause of sympathy for the harassed Tax Exemption Is Only Imaginary Further evidence that taxation., even though invisible, penetrates Inlo every croup of the people, nml -Into every crevice hi domestic and business life, Is, presented In a notation on rent bills In New York City: "You arc paying $.... of your annual rent bill In real estate taxes Now York City. Economy In government" means lower rcnl." In building construction, for instance, tax:s arc levied on the land and on the improvements, and In all probability on the capital which flu- anccs_ (lie enterprise. The Irain ot taxes which follows is_ almost endless—on the concerns which furnish the brick and the lumber and the fix- turcs; on (he railroads or trucks which haul the freight and on the cosil or gas which fuels them; on the: forests from which the timber Is cut and on the lands from which the clay la extracted. These are only a few items. In many instances', a tax is multiplied, as when collected by the Federal, state, county and local governments on a single object. And iu the end these multiple and multiplied taxes are paid by the ultimate consumer —the occupant of the property, cither owner or lessee. I The fancied exemption of 119.EQO.OOO persons from (ho national income tax Ls a costly mirage for them. Through scores of taxes indirectly imposed, they now must, Uke up a treasury deficit of not fnr from $1,000,000,030. Economy In government means not only lower rent, but also a higher living standard and at less cxpeiio:. Not a man, woman or child in the country escapes taxation, or can escape. They cnn, however, moderate the load by Insistence on governmental economy. The real estate, group is doing a distinct national service by impressing this fact on the people. \ —Manufacturers Record.

NEW YOKK.—After its brief moment as a quahit and romance- tinted toy of Broadwayltcs, Hqbok- en has returned to its quiet, Germanic ways. Hordes of slummcrs, still hired by a bevy of brauhousers and an assortment of costumed yodelcrs, wander over and under* the river 'the beats communicating frequently and a tunnel furnishing land passage, llobokcn had retained for many a year n sort of old-worldliness.

Btit Ihe Broadwayesoue flash-in- the-pan huiTah has silenced. Like so many other novelties, it was soon dropped by the jaded night-goers and gradually readjusted- itself to the old lilc. For all of which, the good people ol Hoboken are grateful. They did not Invite invasion. The invaders came, whether wanted or not, and the boom-town aftermath fairly catapulted BOCK!, stolid innkeepers into unfamiliar voles. There were scores of little inns and hotels, where mama did the cooking and papa and the kids waited on table. These awakened suddenly to find gtings ol whoopee makers calling for tarrcls ol beer and for quick service. From little boardinj houses, they suddenly yrew into night resorts, with zither players and Tyrolean dnnctrs and all the rest. Mama had to hire a couple of cocks and pap had to i:iiix>rt a score of waiters fro:i: Yorkvillc in New York. To be sure, the cash register. clinked more merrily than ever. Uut it was far too hectie for th likes of most ol the proprietors, Furthermore, the townfolk liked it no better. This charmins little town, perched upon a hill that Icoks upon jVcw York and which is framed by huge docks, had no great ilair lor life. nnd atmosphere. Soine dated back to Ir.e very Although just a few minutes aw.iv fiom the metropolis, with ferry unch club, where writers and nrt- sts and such like gathered over heir steins, and talked and talked and talked. Scon, the newcomers were spreading word thai they had discovere.i 'the last scaeonst of Bohemia." Well, t'nat ^yas quite alluring enough [or anyone. The word "Bohemian" had almost gone out of the language—may have, in fact, by this time. At any rate, the group found some venerable theaters scattered about Hoboken—places with real histories a'nd plenty of antiquity of them | "good o'.ri days." They tried the experiment of bringing back the rare ,o)cl melodramas oi Bouciacault, who gave David B^lasco his first lessons. Out of the library archives they produced "After Dark"— and then Broadway came down upon ths town. For months the crowds came and packed tile theater. And then the crowds thinned out. Other plays were, tried, bat with little success. The novelty-seekers had had enough. Mcrlcy went, tack to his essays, and llobokcn returned to its people. And thus you will find it today— a picturesque, Germanic little tov,»r perched in Ihe sun^iiie—nnd one of (lie places we would advise you no' to miss ii and when you come to New York.
