Plenty of ' The difference between ,and prosperity means tragedy to many enough, the actual pjap Ijetween- tlie -two statCH is exceedingly narrow. : A writer in tlie current Mni'iizine of' Wall Street (motes litfum'. compiled by the American Federation uf Labor which show that there is in the United States today 'enough work to employ 'every worker in the nation—for 35 hours a week. That is fo say, if a sovon-hmir day and a live-day week were .suddenly installed in every industry, unemployment would iitcrai'ly vimish. There, i'a, it seems, plenty of .work in America for everybody—if only it were divided up etinilably. The normal working week in most industries is 48 hours, Kealiny diwn to 'M inttny cases. Between that and the SO-hour week there is no great gulf. And yet.that small gulf .is enough to throw something like a quarter of all our wage-Gamers out of work and put long .columns of red %ures in the ledger of innumerable businesses. Before the depression came \ve had had several yeatv, of high prosperity. During those years something- might have been done to pitve the way for haru iwn-s. Working hours might have beeri readjusted, for instance, to spread • ,work , Qiit. over a _larger, number«of workers. TJie high profits (hat were being- ni.nln could have enabled industries to d« Ihis without grcally diminishing .the inaividnal H-orkc-r'.s income. : But, a.-: the writer in the abovc- incnlioiicd points out: "Too small a proportion of the earnings of 19iD-l!)29 went into consumption. Too large a• proportion went to swell'the unspciKla'ljlc incomes of n minority of machine owners. Too much was ploughed back into additional capital investments In swell producing facilities which had already run beyond tlie consuming abilities of the mas;, population."

Holmes and Cardozj A (jutHl many year.;, ;IK<I Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes delivered an address lo'Ihirvm-d College .studenl.i, in which hs> told them: "No mini IUIK citrned tlic ri>;lit to intellectual ninbition until he hiis learned to liiy hi?, course by a K t;ir which ho hiis never seen—to dig by the the divining rod for springs which he may never reach." Justice Holmes, Mopping down, is replaced by Justice IScn.iamin N. Cardo/,o, a worthy successor in every way; and the careers of these two men prove conclusively that it is still iiossihio for a man to follow this oilier-worldly, impractical advice which Justice Holmes gave the. college men a jfcnerntiun ago and Mill -win a high place in public life. Ordinarily we Ionic on public office as • PomelhiiijT tiial ha.s In be bought u-ith more or less base metal. The man who would lill it must compromise with expediency, he 'must givu up the privilege nf always what lie thinks, he must occasionally fail to let his right hand know wind his Icl'l hand is •doing. Politics, we arc fond of say- iiii-', i.s a dirly jjamc. IVrhaiis.wc are rigid, in a good many ca.sts. J!ut \vo aren'!. always right. These two men, one leaving a high place, (lie oilier mounting to it, show us how completely our easy assumption can be wrong.
