We Must Not Bar Progress We think it should be recognized that proposals for placing legal checks upon productive efficiency arc contrary to the general interest and in the long run, contrary to the interests tf the very groups they are supposed to benefit. Tlie introduction of labor-saving devices may and -often does result in hardships. Workers displaced by machinery, and their families, are likely to' suffer, at least temporarily. Butat'^he same lime if, is true that living?standards can only rise as productive efficiency is increased. The welfare of th6se who are the temporary victims of the process is properly the concern of .society and <?X the state, but to attempt to protect that welfare by barring Hie way to progress is emphatically the wrong way to attack the probleln. Progress toward the perfection of a mechanical cotton picker has brought • '"expressions .of alarm from many who profess concern for -the welfare of thousands of families who get a major part of their living from picking cot- '' ton'by hand, It certainly is true that when a practical and efficient cotton picking machine appears some difficult readjustments will be necessary. But. who can seriously argue that u machine capable of eliminating the need for the back-breaking human toil now involved in the gathering of the cotton crop would bo anything but an instrument,of human v iH'ogrcss?^ ' The same thing is true' in other lilies. Railroad workers, worried about their jobs, arc seeking legislation to limit the length of trains, the idea being that many short trains wouhl require more enginemen and other \\'6rkers, than a smaller number of 'long ones. That is of course true, but the cost to the consuming public, •which pays freight bills, would bo out of proportion to the' benefits to the workers. 1 It is essential to the general economic 'welfare that the benefits of increased efficiency in production be widely'distributed. The obvious way of accomplishing this is through pass- s ing them on to consumers in reduced prices. Reductions in hours of labor and increases in wages arc other ways in which these benefits may be • spread. But the desirable and neces- sary''thing is to spread the benefits, not erect barriers to the mechanical OUT .OUR WAY or scientific impiovcmcnts which maker them possible. By.George Clark Open-Mindcdness So many surprising things have been done and said since the election . that ixjrhaps people arc not greatly astonished even by this statement from Williijm Hn«!, who .was the foremost Republican radio commentator 'during Uic campaign. Ho ia now quoted as saying in a public forum: "Industrialists must give up the doctrine of laisse/,-fiure, beciuist; without energetic government intervention we caniiot have economic freedom. "The only program able to compete with the New Heal would be one to break up all mergers and monopolies, to use the enormous power of the government'to stamp out unfair competition. "The tax system must be drastically revised, mid conservatives must look at the 'money question with an open mind instead of constantly shouting 'froKT standard'!" Even "more remarkable than the election itself, perhaps, is the mental change that seems to have followed the election, especially the open-'miiid- cdness now revealed by so many conservatives.

Marvin :irrlvc-M home, NOW r:o ox WITH TUB STOIIY CHAPTER XI •nOROTIlY OSBORN looked at her parents across the break- last table with an habitual bitterness, not unmixed with contempt. It was a leeling which she was not at particular pains to conceal, but they, never expecting it, never had had the unhappy experience of realizing it. ncrfnr This morning Dorothy brooded ,i^' over her most consistent complaint, the Hnancial status of the Oshorns. If only they lived in the city! There one could conceal one's poverty, one could walk with chin up, for there one walked so much among strangers. But in the narrow, intimale limits of Hobos Neck everyone else knew, or accuralely guessed, the slate of one's pockelbook. For as long as she could remember, she had been conscious of the lack of money. She had hated her clothes, from kindergarten to higii school graduation, never noticing the attire of girls less fortunate, keenly aware of the dresses of girls more fortunate. Girls who had everything. Girls like. Marcia Canfield and Helen W.Vdell. Well, there was one satisfaction! Marcia had had all the advantages of money, but how did she like her status as a jilted woman— jilted by an embezzler, at thai? There had been a great deal of cnjoymenl in considering Ihis over the weeks. Us full flavor was a secret joy, and Ihere was also a 'secret'and bitter ingredient; but it was joy, nevertheless. That secret .ingredient would ahyays be her secret,. Dorothy promised herself. * * * ' T>EHEABSALS for "Halt-Acre in •^ Eden" .were now taking place every second-night, until Christ- mas, when there would be a week's recess. There was u rehearsal tonight, and Dorothy made it a poinl lo be early al the village auditorium. She made it a point also to be exceptionally agreeable to each arrival as she wailed in the auditorium, so thai, as the hour of rehearsal arrived, she had collected a considerable group of the oilier players. Now someone said: "Well, I siill feel'sorrier for Marcia'than for anybody else in the whole affair." Dorothy had been wailing for Ihe remark. "Oh, so do I!" she said. "And I feel especially sorry for hci when I think how she actually chased across the country after the man who jilted her." As if limed lo the instant, Marcia and Helen Waddcll entered the auditorium. Tlie first act got under way. There was a scene between Marcia, as Julia, and Dorothy, as Emma, Julia's acid sister. Julia, who had been unlucky in love, tried lo explain to Emma why she inlended lo seize the chance of a job in another eily — al home there were only unpleasant memories and ossoeialions. Emma derided her. "You'll soon learn you can't go running away from trouble," recited Dorothy, giving an excelled t the part of Emma "And perhaps some day you'! learn thai oilier people's troubles are real lo them, whether yoi lappen to possess any human sym pathy or not," replied Marcia, in The family always clamps down on me when 1 talk of Belling a job lo keep myself busy, but this would be different—and if they don't think so they can lump II," Marcia had not heard a word. "How would you like to go partners?" pursued Helen, "What? Helen, I'm not the rolo of Julia. . s * J 'TWERE was no pause here in th business of the play—but Dor olhy pa used. Her voice ros slighlly, unnecessarily. "You're not Ihe first woman I get a raw deal from a man, yo 1 know." "No, nor the last, . Oh, if could only make you imdcrstam To go on living on the same strce witli the man who humiliated ni I tell you, if I could fly away froi here this moment—" It was not a cue; there were no even any other players on th stage. But the rehearsal suffere the interruption of .a giggle — giggle quickly suppressed, and the resumed, and added to, fro: among the group of players awai ing their turns in the audiioriurr Two hours later, riding home Helen Waddcll's car, Marcia bega to feel the reaction to her aclivi' of Iho pasl few dayt. . She -w, utterly weary. - • >.•.', . .., Helen sought conversation ,t other matters. ! '' "I've had a grand idea," si said. "I think I'll open a.'.rlrc shop. Tliis town needs one bad going on with the play." "You're not going to do what?" "I'm going to quit the cast." They were a block from Hie infield home. Helen drove to the oor and switched olt the motor. "I'm coming in for a sandwich, id darn the hour!" she cried. Now, sisler, you and I are g9ing do some more talking." ^ « * i T the same moment a train arrived in Bobbs Neck bearing ike Bradford, who had been cov- •ing a night assignment for the ew York afternoon newspaper vliich employed him, and who •asn't any loo pleased about it.
