Dividends of Employes William Loinerson, professor of economics at Antiocli college, lins a new idea about industry—an idea that is worth thinking .about, even if tlie chancos of its being adopted in the near future arc pretty small. Industry's first responsibility, he declares, should he to its employes rather than to its stockholders. Is the present depression, he says, many firms which are sharply cutting down their numbers of employes arc continuing to pay dividends; and this, lie believes, is all wrong. In other words, Prof. Leiserxon believes that in hard times industry should look after its employes first and its stockholders second. This, of course, is a rather radical proposal, and Prof. Leiserson won't find many business men to agree with him. Just the same; it's an idea worth thinking about. growing home market, due to the constant increase in population. Between 1900 and 1910, for instance, population increased by 13,000,000, or about 21 per cent; between 1910 and 1920 it increased by 16,000,000. But Immigration has been cut off, and the birth rate is falling. In a short time our population will increase at the rate of less tlmn a million n year, and by 1960 we shall quita possibly have a population stabilized at aboul 1CO,000,000. Yet productivity is condantly increasing. Mr. Knanpcn points out thai since the home market is not increasing in proportion any more, American business must make its own markets abroad— or suffer the siimu .sort of depression that has overtaken agriculture.

Ploughshares and Flivvers Henry Ford's remark that there might be circumstances under which he would be willing to buy the navies of the world and scrap the ships for tlie metal in them probably drew a smile from most nev>-spaper readers. The proposition is rather apt, though —and it won't dp to smile too hard, because some day Ford .might up nml do it. He's .quite capable of it.' And if an enduring world peace ever comes, it will come largely because the great industrialists iike^Ford want it to come. The thing wiT like best about it, though, is its analogy with the old prophecy about the beating of swords into ploughshares.

' That's always the question of paramount importance. Years ago folks asked it of the post rider, the soldier returned from the wars, the man who had been down to the settlements, or the neighbor back from the general store. Today, you find the answer in your newspaper. Through the newspapers the news of the world and of the community quickly becomes public knowledge. And remember this—it takes two kinds of news to make a modern paper complete. The first tells of happenings near and far—of fires, sports, elections, accidents, marriages, deaths, great men, great events. The second tells of things you eat, wear and use- things you buy, things being sold to your friends and neighbors. This news is advertising. It's just as important to keep up to date on the advertising in this paper as it is to read about what's doing in the world of events. Advertsing is an essential news service. It is distinctly to your advantage to be guided by it.
