One Year of the PWA Shows Much Done The nation's creates! effort to create employment through a giant program •of public works is now just one year old. A report on what has been accomplished has just been written by Secretary of the Interior Harold L. Ickes, as public works administrator. It is an admirable report in its candor. Ickes says frankly that the l'\VA "has won in many sectors, and lost in others. It has made errors, corrected its mistakes, and doubtless will make more errors, to be corrected in their turn . . . But it is a whcclhorsc in the recovery team . . . and it is pulling ils weight." Much criticism has come to.the PWA, centered on two points': Finit, that it was slow in getting under way, and that increased employment was not quickly felt; Second, that many cities which needed PWA money most were denied it. So it is good thatr-lckes now sums up what has been accomplished. * * * The whole ?3,300,000,000 was allotted by Jan. 1, 193-1. More than a billion dollars of the fund has actually been paid in cash. Some 16,000 construction projects have been, provided for, most of them now under .way. ' , i . How many men have been given . work? Ickes is careful not to say, because he feels that any estimate on that basis would be misleading. You might say, for instance, that two million men had received employment. But if they all worked one week'and then were laid off, that wouldn't be much work, after all. So Ickes .makes his estimate on hours of work provided. There were "1,418,000,000 hours of honest work at honest wages on direct construction site employment only to men who otherwise would have passed those hours in the ranks of the idle." * * » That means 177,250,000 eight-hour days, or 29,541,666 weeks' work. Or . it means 20 weeks' work for nearly a million and a half ,men. Almost as much again is assured in coming months from allotments already made, and it is further estimated that two hours of indirect work is provided in pro- TUtlSDAY, JUNE 19, 19f OUT OUR WA\ during tjie materials for these jobs for every hour actually put in them tjirectly. So the PWA administration has provided a vast 'amount of work, and in the heavy and construction industries chiefly, where it was most needed. In the main, the huge fund seems to have b«en spent for projects of value to the public, and without administrative scandal. Secretary Ickea is to he congratulated on making a frank, straightforward report on his handling of the huge sum of public money to which he refers as "a public trust." President Cleveland became famous for his principle that "public office is a. public trust." Harold Jckos will gain immortal fame if he can establish .11 like regard for public money. —Bruce Cation. Barrel-Chested Skinny youths who aspire to the barrel-chested bulk of a heavyweight wrestler miyht just as well forget all about it, say» Dr. C. A. Harper, state health officer of Wisconsin. It looks impressiye on the bathing beach, but it doesn't necessarily mean a thing. The barrel-chested man may be just as susceptible to tuberculosis or other pulmonary diseases as the Hal-chested one, says the iconoclastic doctor. Lung space and expansion is important, but the man with a long thin chest may have just as much lung capacity -as the one who looks like a pouter pigeon, and the thin-chested lellow, if \vcll-pro|wi turned and well- nourished, may be just as strong as the big fellow. So thCre J p ou are, and don't worry if you 'don't bulge. "He Jests at Scars" The supreme tragedy of the world is that nobody really learns anything except by experience-—and then it is too late. John Killeen, state commander of the Michigan G. A..R., was talking about the lonjr-proposed ; but never-accomplished joint convention' between Union and Confederate veterans. "It's not that we veterans hold any grudge against each other," Killeen said. '.'But the younger generation and the women folk would never stand for it. They think we fought in the old days, and should still feel like fighting." Killeen, who bears the scar of a saber wound received at Cedar Creek, adds, "I'd like to shake the hand of the fellow who wounded me, and tell him 1 respect him as a good soldier end a better, hand with the saber than I was . . ." And there you have it. The younger generation, it seems, can not know until it finds it out itself, the mutual respect and common feeling of adversaries who have fought well and buried bitterness.

The advocates of socialism mislead our people by teaching that labor and capital arc antagonist, which is not true, as they jointly produce all wealth, which proves their Interests arc mutual. Labor and capital have a common enemy; namely Landlordism, by which Landlords annually collect some twenty thousand million dollars I in the form of Land rent from the workers of our nations for nothing (Landlords do not provide Land). The collection of twenty thousand million dollars Land rent from the workers by Landloards for nothing, leaves the workers on the farms and In the cities wenty thousand million dollars hort of their purchasing power nd that is why they cannot buy rom each other the things they roduce, not thai alone, but our Tcople are being taxed to dcstruc- ion because our land rent is not ully collected for all public needs. 11 our nation is to fulfill its .cstiny we must stop experiment- US with socialistic "cure'alls" and urn to the doctrine of Henry ieorgc, ns expounded in his im- nortal book "Progress and Pov- rly," in which he advocates the lilli'ilile iin which our nation is /0e HUMAN NOSE IS CAPA61.E OF DETECTING MORE THAN 60OO uunded; namely: individml liberty —rqual rights far all and special privilege lo none.

Scurvy can be prevented by adequate amounts of vitamin C, most frequently found in fresh fruits and vegetables. When artificial feeding of babies was introduced, scurvy began to appear rather frequently among them. Babies fed by their mothers did not have scurvy, l>ccause the mothers ate fresh fruits and vegetables and the babies got vitamin C in their mothers' milk. We know today tlmi IKIU kills vitamin C and that, any taby on an artificial diet, or one contain ing large amounts ol milk and not much of anything eke. simply has to have fresh fruit or vegetable juices to prevent scurvy.

They suggested that I may have trouble getting members, as lots of folks did not have enough to spare. But a man of my knowledge and ability will experience little difficulty in overcoming tins. I may add the word "limited" to the title, when all ot those with a limited amount can spare just a little and that way the new members can take from several of the limited ones and still leave the old members with enough to qualify. I realize that this will be hard on all the other churches, but we no* live in an age of the survival of the fitcst. I will do a lot of good and also teach my old church a lesson for putting me oil the church board. My hired man says its doubtful if I can secure members in payir.g numbers, as manj of the old church members may feel that they do not have enough religion to even spare a smal amount.
