Key stoneof NCI lion's Prosperity fs the Kuying Power of Labor The greatest yain made by American labor .during the trying duys tlial liiive passed since tlie Grout Collapse in 1929 does not appear on any slat- nlo book. 11 is written ' in no court proceeding, recorded in no chronicle of Hie picket lines. It is this: for the Ili'sl time in the history o,f tlxj country, lAvacticijlly; everyone, workman, employer, professional or business man, recogjiines that the keystono-^of prosperity and the welfare of all of us is the purchasing power of the men and women wlio-woj'k. A few economists always knew it. But there were always some in influential places to deny it, and the great majority of people were indifferent to it. Now, it has been home in on us again and again, by the most careful studies 'of economists of the Hrook- iiiffs Institution type, and by Hie. daily observation of every man who studies his own and his neighbors' lives. - Without wages that will put strong purchasing power into the Hands of those who work, there can be no prosperity, no security for anyone. The American .market remains the greatest in the world. And that is because the buying power of the American workman has always been high in comparison with that of workmen abroad. It is good -to haye : all<,the .foreign markets we can^ge|' •. bi)tf";i|jte fact re-;_ > mains that the great nuirk'ct of the world is right here, and that its keystone is good wages which will put purchasing power into the hands of the many. : Merchants know it. They have seen their sales leap as employment grew and wages rose. Professional people know. it. They have seen medical, dental, and legal bills paid, after having been dormant for years. Business men of all kinds know it, for they have .seen the pulse of business beat faster as that purchasing power seeped down through retitil trade into light, and then to heavy, manufacturing. ^Working people them.s.el,ves know it, as they have watched their puy en- ' velopes translated into more and better things to broaden their own lives. Everybody knows it now, and the universal establishment of that grow- OUT OUR WAY ing truth is (he best augury for the future of American labor as it joins hands OJICB again i» celebrating its own day. The future of American labor is somewhat clouded in detail. Rival or- ganizatioJis put forth their claims for attention, Different courses of action are urged on the men and women who work. But the central fact of labor's keystone position in the national economy is so firmly established that the future can be set along only one course: "Konvard!" —Willis Thornton. Be Not Deceived!

Bones Reveal Horror i Crime In Dark Ages ROME (UP)—A mysterious crime of hundreds of yrars ;i|,'o was discovered when workmen were <le- mollshiinj the 500-year-old Uoman hostel known as the AltiDrgo dell 'Orso.
