Business Takes Large Qrain of Salt With Boom Encouraging ipcjeetl is; M'e marlu'U ' tendency of the business world to tako wit)i 3 J^rgp grrijn of salt Die jipswge of business due directly and indirectly ' to the European war. Corning just when it did, the upsurge was welcome, and the prospect of prof- itabje business is pleasant to njany firms who for tlje p.ast two-years have ,l)Gon operating in the red. But there is very little of the wild ljullabaloo that greeted the "war boom' of 1915 and 1916. I ike everything •,else,_the business situation is ()ifl'cre)it. • And like everybody else, business men learned something last time. , It is entirely possible thai direct wjir business may ))0t be nearly as great this time as'last, even if the arms embargo should bo repealed. In the first place, the British and French are much" better equipped to supply themselves. They have bad a year's clear wanting, and tljc horrible shortage of shells and war. materials ivliich so hurl the British in 1914 is unlikely this time. Instead of three important arms plants in Britain, as in 1914, there are hundreds today. The French, whose best industrial territory \yas immediately .taken in 1914, do not face this handicap today. Such buying as these countries do ?n the United States, will be , organized and centralized this time, not .wildly competitive. ; In fact, such uplift as'business .has •' seen"thus far is only J:o # sn^UI 'extent , attributable directly to' 1 war buying. Most of it has come from the stimulus which war conditions gave to domestic buying, from our o\yn ,'jyrms program, and from orders shunted to the United States from countries cuf off from Europe. Steel production at above 84 per cent of production may not hold that pace, being apparently far ahead of consumption. Farm commodity prices are up, but still lar below parity. Railway earnings for August show that marked improvement in that field had begun before the ,war broke, Chilean, Brazilian, and Portuguese' railway equipment orders in prospect'are war business only indirectly. So are ott)er. orders from -neutrals. ,The most hopeful side of this "war boomlet" js the re&liained way in which business leadeis aie facing it ed warnings tme come_fiom many ot them against ovei optimism, ovei speculation, overexpaiibion Quick, excessive piodls will only be taken W y by taxation, whereas if OUT OUR WAY 'such profit margin? are turned as. far as possible into'cheapened prices leading to an expanded domestic /narket, the gains made may be solidified #nd made a bulwark for the future when contraction follows abnormal war co;i- dilions. This policy IH no theory urged by impractical dreamers, but a bound, statesmanlike coufsc put forward by such pragrnaijsts as l|ie American Bankers' Association. Such uplift as war conditipns bring to Ijtibjness must be regarded not as Kometbiiig in itself, but sjnjply an i\ chance to reduce unemployment wul the relief burden, to get budgets back on a sounder basis, and, in short, to get solidly to our feet. Steady Job Whether Congress confines the present cm'crgency session to proposed amendment of the neutrality law, or whether it remains in session thereal- ler, one proposal has been made thai, sounds useful. It is that Congress set up a committee to examine foreign propaganda, and (lint this committee sit continuously even if Congress adjourns. Such :v committee, with powers of jjijbppna, could render the country an invaluable servjce if continually in session by helping to enable the people to' understand more clearly what goes on in the world. It is essential not only that news be given, but that it be weighed and assessed as to source and purpose. Newspapers are" trying hard to he|p their readers do this, but a congies- iional coniinitleo \yitji power of stib- pena might be a gieat hojp at limes. America has momentous decisions to make. It not make them without the best and clearest information it is possible to get. \ r Fulure Fanners * " ' , If America means miytliiiH; at nil, it njeanii the forward look toward the better, brighter future. During the week of Oct. 15, approximately 8000 American farm, boys are lo : meet in Krmsas <j)ity. _They are organ' f ized under- a name that has a true and hopeful ring, "The Future Farmers of America." This association of 205,000 farm boys was started 12 years ago under the sponsorship of the U, S. Otlice oi'Edu- cation, and its convention will bring together delegates from every state as Well'as from Hawaii and Puerto Rico. Jt is a ijne thing to nee farm boys assembling thus with their eyes on the ftlttire, and it is the job of the present to sep l)iat so far as possible its events do not becloud that future.

Things bad gone from bad to worse jn flic IHarlcness apartment. And no one bad been : to blame but herself. Quito frantic over (he unpaid bills resentful because of (he necessqry penny pinching, slic had,taken a temporary, arid very foolish, way out. ' Listening to Ibc radio while she turned the cuffs on Dan's worn snjrts, she had been inspjrcfl by the plausible chatter of a loan shark—he called himself a broker, Yoiir furniture ov your car, no cosigners, easy monthly payments. Marian had been in an office she was smart enough to look behind the 3 per cent monthly Interest rate. S!)o could multiply and knew well what 3G per cent a "year meant. But she wanted money, she wanted to rid herself of the hard- faced collectors. More than anything else, she wanted a new dress and hat and shoos. She ha<3 paid (he creditors and wilh Ilia re-established credit, had charged two dresses, three bats and a pair o£ blue kid shoes. For one month she had enjoyed a precarious peace. Afler that—well, after that. The same men who'had suavely urged her to borrow more than she actually . needed, became wolves who crouched on her doorstep, hounds who trailed her, .judges who condemned her. She managed for a few months, cutting here, charging there, at last finding herself in a tangled web of debt. Then, one day, not speaking of it to Dan, she went to see Grant Fellows, lie had been delighted to see her. When in his office before her marriage, she had shown great' promise and lie needed girls like'her. Angie Dpran had not been delighted (o see her. She told Grant Fellows the facts and, together,, they worked out a little scheme. He was lo call the custodian • of the building where Marian lived, the Harkness telephone had been disconnected, and nsk for Dan. He was to ask Dan, as a personal favor to himself, to Jet his wife work for a few weeks. Illness in. the office and so forth! Mr; Fellows had called, Dan had sprinted down to the" custodian's office and 1 returned, dragging his feet. Marian, reading a magazine upside down, had not looked up when'he came ;n! .-' '.. "Darling," he had . said, and i Marian could remember how he looked, grim and miserable, "I've sold you down the river," Later)' When they quarreled, $be had r«r minded him of the statement, r«r minded him tijat her going l?ack'to work had been his idea! Recalling the time, Marian felt that no punishment was now too great 'for her. ' ..'.'' -••',.'• ' *•»''» .' SITTING there in the quiet room, ^ the snowflakes drifting against the window pane, she wanted to dodge the memories. In another way, she-was eager to fage them. In soirie vague way, by so doing, she was purging her conscience. She had looked up brightly. "Down Hie rivei? May I have a boat or must I swim?" Pan had not smiled. "There's an epidemic of colds at the Grapt Fellows office. He called to ask if you could help put for a week or 10 days,'" " "Of course I can. It'lJ only Jje fqr a little while—I'H make a few dollars." '' • Dan had frowned, "I don't mind i£ you help Mr. Fellows in an emergency—" Marian hadn't been ashamed even then. Knowjng'that there was n,o emergency'except her own folly, she should have been ashamed. "But don't lake any money, Glad. Give hjfn a few days o£ your time, but don't accept pay." Marian had said, ''Well — I'll see," knowing that'slje was going back to Grant Fellows' office to stay. Knowing that, once'she got there, she could prolong the time and-at; .last bring Pan to her way of thinking. ' ' He had taken her In his arms. His eyes rjad b'een somber." "I don't like it. You've been all mine, I have the strangest, feeling that you are drawing away : from me, that we are losing something." She had kissed him rapturously. She was; very .happy. The undei-- iianded scheme had worked. Money to pay the loan men, money for pretty clothes, a new suit for Dan, a pleasanter apartment.' "You'can't lose me, old fejla," she had said. ''Just try it and see iflw far you get." Eagerly Dan had waited for the week to pass. The apartment was different when Marian was gone during the day. When they went in together there was a feeling as :f no one lived there. The laundry lad io be spnt out and Dan's collars chafed his neck. The meals were queer, thrown together at !he last minute. Sometimes the aed was' down .when they came home, sometimes the breakfast dishes were unwashed. To all Dan's pleading and insistence that shes return to the home nest, she gd\e the same answer 'I can t let Mr I ellows down, Dan ' Soon she got to add- ing; "It may be a month or mb'rl ECI"don't get excited, Mr, Fello'\| has asked me to train the nel ' FINALLY, it had come to • showdown. Daij had ealltj Grant Felloes. Ho had asked good-naturedlj "Say, when, do I'get my wil back?" Mr. Fellows had been Irani He'd played the little game wil Marian because of gity for her dl lemma. He lik'ed her, he wantJ her to stay. She was fitting in! hjs office, replacing *\ngie fiorahf precise' and somewhat pqs'ses'sW capabilities with charm an youthful inspiration. ' That night Dan find Marian .... taken their first reluctant stej down separate paths. The i(j paths seemed Jo run close '{ gelher, and Marian had nqt nil ticed when the distance widentf between them. Dan saw the danger. Gentl and kindly, he tried to reason wit) her. He tried to explain what I family meant, how 'the interesl must be the same, how they mul pull ^together. She would not listen. "You'll unreasonable, Pap," she had sail "You want Wje to be a drudge that you can have the fun'., throwing back your shoulders 'ail pretending th'aj; you. are a goc! provider," At the hurt look jri hi eyes she- had run to him, thrpwiil her arms arounij his" neck."
