Planning Production The call which has been issued by James W. Gerard, chiiiimiin of Uie commissioii on industrial inquiry of the National Civic Federation, for a congress of lnisino:s mill luljor leaders to draft a 10-yenr-plnn to sysleinali/.o prixluctiun iiiul ctiniinale iincniploy- nVciit in Amcvicn, rcllucls no new discovery. 11 lia:, long been evident thai at least one important source of our economic (lilTiculticg has been the titter lack of co-ordination and constructive purposes in American production. We .plow, sow, ami harvest, dig mines, drill oil wells, b.uild machinery, operate factories, not to provide the things that are necessary to the life ami general ..happiness and wall being of the American people, but to imil;e money. Fortunately there is a very definite relationship between the meeting of needs niul the making of money, so on the whole we have 'gotten .along pretty...well;: But when, because of , lack 'of knowledge and narrowness of viewpoint on the jiart of our vast iwm- ber of/, unintegratcd -producers-, it develops that too many persons arc seeking to make money .in certain lines of production, there comes a collapse. Pi'olits cease, men are thrown out of work, jobless industrial workers suirur for food and clothing while farmers, •«wani|)ed in the excess of their wheat and coUon/*^5**ttithoul manufactured goods. It is a tragically irrational thing, this depression, through which we are passing, but how Jlr. Gerard jinii his associates cxirect to make its recurrence impossible is dilTicnlt to understand. Any effective voluntary plan would be the most gigantic "conspiracy in restraint of trade" ever confronted by the attorney general's office. On the other hand government control and direction of production, as is being attempted in Russia, is unthinkable in this country, even granting that it niight work.. At least until such time as Mr. Gerard gets his plun in effective working order the wisest policy for the majority of us will be to conduct our all'airs in a fashion that will enable us lo weather such forms of adversity as are beyond our control. For the individual and for the business insliUijLion a cash reserve will continue to be the best possible insurance against disaster. This applies In the farmer, as to others, but the former has the advantage in that he can adopt a program that will make him in large measure independent, of market and employment conditions. More Unwise Censorship Onu of the most unpleasant bits of news to .come out olj Washington in months is the recent disclosure that tha Treasury Department has started censoring Dm radio broadcasts and press releases of the I'ublic Health Service. Recently a 1'ublic Health Service broadcaster suggested that it is wise lo eat less meat than usual in the hot days of .summer. Instantly a (loot! of protests po'ui'ed in fiuni meat packers and live .iloi'k associations. Oddly enough, the government listened to these protests. Now the I'ub- lic Health Service officials have been notified that all radio broadcasts and press releases hereafter must get the 0. K. of the treasury secretary's of- lice before they go lo the public. However this is disguised, il is censorship—and censorship of a peculiarly stupid and dithgcrous kind. If government health experts,cannot speak their minds freely because their official superiors are afraid of (ifl'eiuling private buuino-s men, Ilia health service might as well go out of business. TUESDAY, JUNE 16, 1931 SIDE GLANCES By George Clark Arkansas and Roosevelt The statement of Senator Caraway In Washington yesterday, lu which he chimed that Ar- knnsas would strongly support. Governor Roosevelt of New York us tccond choice lo Kobltisuu Is of extreme political importance. Tile position tufccu by Sctinlor Cam way that Ills state favors the New York executive should boost the. stock o( Roosevelt. Noting Ihe possible cniullditcy of Robinson, Senator Caraway commented: "If Senator Hob- Insou Is not noinluntcd, Hoose-vell is the almost unanimous choice of the stale." There Is no cloubl, however, thnt Senator liobinson Is n most prospective;. lint more linporlnnt. whether nominated or not, the senior Arkunsns senator Mill hol;i a com- iminrllni; position at the national Democratic convention. Of the dry candidates Hobinson Is t!ie leader. He will have the bucking of the dry Southern states, lie will be a pcisonaejc to deal with and will have u comminuting voice hi the selection of the nominee. Outside of Hobinson the most potential can- dtdilcs arc in favor of the repeal of the Eighteenth Amendment. Governor Roosevelt has made his stand clear, although the Southern dry leaders look u|X>n him with much more favor Hum Ihu more avowed wets. The inler|)K'latioH of Arkansas' sentiment toward Roosevelt is thus doubly interesting. If Robinson, fmrtiin; that the eastern and southern Democrats could not possibly come to an agreement upon his stand, should join his colleague in this support, of Roosevelt, there is little doubt as to the choice of the next presidential nominee. —Joncsboro Tribune tir\^ 'Mji -V vr-li.J * <•- V cejil in scicnlifie experimentation.

According lo some of Ihe statements made thc-re was some wonderful happenings.

"To test muslin for'filling'—rub a small section vigorously between the forefingers, and note any starchy substance that breaks out of the fibers. "To test for color-fastness -- before buying wash goods of any kind it is safest to obtain small samples of all patterns and soak in clear water. "To detect cotton in an 'all-wool' fabric — pull the threads apart and apply a lighted matc'h," etc., etc. How funny they were—these old suspicious-of-everything shopping tests! Grandmother knew them all by heart, and descended on Mr. Biggs, the linen draper, with defiance in her eye. Her little, moistened forefinger shot suspiciously under every proffered length of sheeting or dish-toweling. She took nobody's word for anything!
