Yet that is what the Britisher is to pay under the new Snowden budget with a heavy surtax on the larger incomes When the amount of British taxes Is con sidered it is evident why the MacDonald government felt it was essential to make drastic national economies in addition to increasing taxes The old taxes constituted a heavy load on British Industry and handicapped British manufacturers in competing for world trade Obviously these taxes could not be indefinitely increased without strangling business and so bringing further unemployment and suffering on the people The decision of the majority in the house of commons to adopt such a taxation program as that offered by Chancellor Snowden is evidence of the appreciation of the nature of the emergency and the determination of the nation to meet its obligations no matter at what cost Seeing the Bright Side Too- For each of the present major economic ills of the South an agricultural editor of Atlanta C A Cobb finds a condition of an offsetting or constructive nature To balance up or outweigh the low price of cotton there is a bountiful crop one of the largest ever produced If the cotton farmer feels depressed and in debt his land still has a smaller volume of mortgages upon it than obtains in other agricultural regions If there is too much of one crop the production this year has been less expensive and other crops also are being grown more economically So while times are bad and the fact must be admitted they are not so bad in the South as some people have been led to think Seeing both or al sides of a situation is often hard but it is always worth while In times of misfortune the common practice is 'to concentrate attention upon the unfavorable factors and ignore all others Perhaps most people in the South today would feel that the low price of cotton is disaster and nothing else In its temporary effects it may be that for many persons But if out of the present troubled situation there comes a sound and permanent means of acreage control the experience will have been worth all it cost Humanity has had to pay pretty heavily for most of the valuable lessons it has learned Will They Ever Learn? Daily news accounts and police warnings to the contrary there always are persons ready to give their money to card sharks dollar matching crews and other classes of confidence men Recently a young man came from Tennessee with money Police encountered him In bad company cautioned him as to his companions and specifically warned against those always looking for easy money The youth thanked the police and went his way Now he reports the loss of $4300 in a poker game into which he was steered by newly made friends There always is a market it seems for prospective investors in the union station in the Liberty Memorial or in dollar matching contests with strangers National Wealth in the West The National Industrial Conference Board declares in a statement just issued that the states west of the Mississippi with 30 per cent of the national population have 32 per cent of the total national wealth Leadership in all factors of wealth except that of manufactured products is given the West on the per capita basis In the value of crop production livestock and railroad mileage this area with its 30 per cent of population is credited with more than one-half of the national totals The West produces only 195 per cent of the total of manufactures On the other hand it yields 48 per cent of mine products Although Illinois Wisconsin and Michigan with their great urban centers are in some other calculations classed as western in this comparison they are on the side of the East Yet there are more telephones per capita west of the Mississippi from which the greater centers ar excluded than east of the river More Isurprising still is that in 1929 the year on which all these statistics are based the West had 37 per cent of the motor cars The per capita retail business is almost identical in the two grand divisions However to get certain restrictions that enter into these calculations take this quotation from the report: National wealth represents tangible physical assets only not their ownership it excludes credits securities and currency but specifically includes land and structures and other improvements thereon the equipment of Industrial enterprises farms livestock railroads and public utilities personal prop WI motor and other vehicles and gold and 0 III silver coin and bullion °Mining" Includili products of minrs oil wells and quarrItoo It ld apparent therefore that while the West makes a fine showing in that within its bounds there is more tangible physical wealth per capita than there is in the East the distribution of ownership of much of this tangible property would tell a different story Even ownership of the farms is shared extensively by Easterners through farm mortgages snd as for railroads other public utilities mines and some other tangibles the securities that rep resent their ownership are largely held in the East Nevertheless the statement of resources in the West and of the evident widespread dif fusion of wealth as indicated by the possession of telephones and motor cars is exceedingly Impressive School an Employment Aid Reports from many points in Missouri in-eluding Kansas City indicate that school en rollments are being enlarged because of unemployment The situation should be reflected in high schools and colleges most of the latter not yet opened Throughout the country young people are being urged' to continue their education both because of benefits possible for themselves and of the contribution that will be made to relief of pressure for Jobs In many Instances no doubt the heads of families or ethers with dependents are kept from work because of places occupied by boys and girls who ought to be in school The national child labor committee believes that some means should be devised for keeping young people in school at least to the age of 16 A more rigid enforcement of compulsory attendance laws would contribute to that end The issuing of permits for children to leave school for work should be limited to cases of known necessity There is a duty of parents the school authorities and of entire communities in this situation The school facilities have been provided at public expense They are adequate in most cases or the needs of all who should seek the opportunities offered Norman E Mack Retires A Democratic national convention without Norman E Mack national committeeman from New York would seem to lack something essential certainly tt would lack a figure that for forty years has been conspicuous and interesting in these momentous gatherings But after serving over a long period as a delegate to national conventions and for more than thirty years as national committeeman Mr Mack announces that he will not accept election again Long a leading editor and publisher in Buffalo he retired from newspaper activities in 1929 Now he proposes to rest on his political laurels as well For a man who never has sought public office he has figured to an uncommon extent in national and state politics his representation of the most important state politically enhancing a prestige he earned by distinguished service Mack was not always in accord with other Democratic leaders of the East He supported Bryan through his three campaigns for the presidential nomination and on the nominee's request was made chairman of the national cornmittee in 1908 The retiring politician is 73 It is hoped that he will continue to attend conventions unofficially just for the sake of old times NEITHER POVERTY AOR RICHES Two things have I required of thee: deny them not before I die: remove far from me vanity and lies: give me neither poverty nor riches feed me with food convenient for me: lest I be full and deny thee and say Who la the Lord--Proverbs zsr I to g Too Many Yes Men Now From the Magazine of Wall Street Among wage workers and "white collar" employees generally the ancient practice of "yesing" the boss probably is more prevalent than ever before in the history of American business Jobs are scarce and the employee thinks twice before risking even minor offense Unfortunately "yesing" the boss can never contribute much to the virility and progress of any enterprise Forthright criticism and suggestion would be of far greater value Fortunately depression has brought a drift away from "yesing" on the part of the higher executive subordinates the great vice-president class Their boss the corporate president or chairman has in nost instances experienced a substantial deflation of ego He is more amenable to suggestion His associates are in lees awe of him 044:0 4 WE'LL SOON FIND OUT WHO'S BOSS AROUND HERE From the Philadelphia Inoutrer RtW figioNAL (7:e tr- I --"'a'ammessentmtaymiterwaffialmiamoommenumow — 410- THE

the American Frontier More Than a Century Ago and Patented in 1S29 Will Win Support for Its Creator When the Next Election is field at New York University in 1935 WILLIAM AusTIN BURT not only invented but built the first typewriter that the world knew That original machine the forerunner of the millions in use today was made in Michigan then a territory The first letter ever produced other than by hand was written in De trolt The second letter was written in New York but was addressed to the wife of the inventor then living in Detroit For seventy-three years now William Austin Burt has been sleeping in Elmwood cemetery Detroit writes L L Stevenson in the Detroit News Ile was recommended for a place in the Hall of Fame in 1920 by the New York State Shorthand Reporters' Association The year before the National Association of Shorthand Reporters meeting in Detroit sent a delegation to Elmwood cemetery and placed a wreath on the tomb of the inventor GRANTED PATENT IN 1829 Naturally the invention of a writing machine more than a century ago created quite a stir since up to that time all writing had been done with a pen Working on his machine in the woods of Michigan the inventor was somewhat handicapped and the first machine ha turned out developed a number of imperfections Nevertheless he had it developed to idiroorow A i'lRt 'it-4 1 :170-rP 111" 0 r '4 ' ' ''-i i '''C 1 t P WILLIAM AUSTIN BURT INVENTOR OP THE TYPE WRITER such a point that July 23 1829 he was granted a patent which we signed by President Andrew Jackson That first model also was developed far enough so that on May 25 1829 in Detroit "Michigan Territory" John P Sheldon wrote the following letter to Martin Van Buren: This Is a specimen of printing done by me on Mr Burt's Typographer You will observe some inaccuracies in the letters: these are owing to the Imperfections of the machine It having been made in the woods of Michigan where no proper tools could be obtained by the Inventor who In the construction of It merely wished to test the principles of It therefore taking little pains In making I am satisfied from my knowledge of the print Ing business as well as the operation of the rough machine with which I am now printing that the Typographer will be ranked with the most novel useful and pleasing inventions of the age Your obedient servant MET WITH LITTLE SUCCESS Printed on the back of the letter was: "I William A Burt being duly sworn depose and say that I am the inventor of the machine called by me the Typographer and intended for use in families offices and stores and further that such invention and any parts thereof have not to the best of my knowledge and belief been known or used in the United States or any foreign country" The affidavit was executed In Detroit "Michigan Territory" May 25 1829 A little less than a year later the inventor had his second machine in operation and on that wrote a letter to his wife He was in New York then evidently seeking funds to develop 1 his machine and not meeting with much suecess as he speaks of being handicapped by lack of money with which to hire help though he had been as prudent as he could be even t taking board with a family where he paid only $3 a week While Mr Burt had an invention which was to revolutionize the art of writing he was so far ahead of his time that he suffered the usual fate of the pioneer In this case it was the loss of time and money he had put Into his invention SERVED IN WAD or 1813 Mr Burt the inventor was born in Petersham Mass June 13 1793 His father fought both in the Revolution and the War of 1812 Circumstances made It necessary for young Burt to go to work at a very early age But being of a mechanical turn of mind with a great thirst for knowledge he devoted all of his spare time to studies Obtaining access to a book on navigation he mastered it with the firm intention of becoming a navigator Ills mother however kept him front the ocean m her father had been lost at sea At 18 he took up what was to be his life work Having acquired a second-hand surveying compass be repaired it and made surveys In the vicinity of his home which was then rear East Aurora N Y For a number of years he worked at surveying and when the war was declared in 1812 he enlisted in the United States army After the war he went to Michigan In addition to surveying he had followed the trade of millwright and his first work in the Territory of Michigan was to build a sawmill at Auburn In 1826 and 1827 he was a member of the territorial council of Michigan In that capacity he became very much interested in internal improvements In the territory Among them was a project for a canal around the falls in St Mary's River the forerunner of the present canals at Sault Ste Marie In 1833 he was appointed deputy United States stir' vcyor for the territory northwest of Ohio INVENTED AN IMPROVED COMPASS While at work on the survey he invented the solar compass an Instrument by means of which variations of a magnetic needle due to local causes could be remedied That instrument was patented in 1836 and exhibited in the Franklin Institute Philadelphia that same year and again exhibited in an improved form in 1840 when he was awarded a Scott legacy medal and $20 in gold He also received a prize medal from Prince Consort Albert at the World's Fair in London in 1851 The compass is still in use Dr Douglas Houghton died in 1845 and Mr Burt took over his geographical notes and completed his work in the upper peninsula of Michigan The year before Mr Burt and his compass men while surveying near Teal Lake Marquette County found specimens of iron ore this having been the first recorded discovery of iron in that territory Another valuable invention of Mr Burt was the equatorial sextant which he patented in 1856 Mr Burt's greatest invention however was his Typographer a name which clung to the typewriter for forty-five years It was the first practical writing machine produced anywhere in the world though there has been a tendency to give credit for priority to English inventors ORIGINAL MODEL LOST IN FIRE The confusion is probably due to the patent office fire of December 15 1836 in which all the models in the patent office were destroyed among them the model of the original machine In 1892 the patent office decided to present as its contribution to the Columbian exposition models of all great American inventions from the beginning They soon located Austin Burt a great-grandson of the inventor then a student of engineering in the University of Minnesota As might have been expected from one of the ablest civil engineers of his day the plans and specifications made a part of the patent were so clear and comprehensive that his descendant working from them and family papers sixty-three years later was able to make a perfect replica The machine is now in the Smithsonian Institution The patent office description of the Typographer may be of interest to users of modern machines: "This patent discloses the actual construction of a type writing machine for the first time in any country The type are arranged on the underside of a segment carried by a lever pivoted to swing vertically and horizontally "The desired character is brought to the printing point by moving this lever horizontally to a position over the same character in the index and the impression is made by then depressing the lever SEVERAL TYPE STYLES "Several styles of type may be used and they are arranged in two rows on the lever: these rows of type can be shifted on the lever to bring either one to the printing point "The paper is carried on an endless band which travels crosswise of the machine and this band is moved for letter space by the impression lever every time said lever is depressed to print "The line space is made by shifting the frame carrying the printing mechanism toward the front or rear of the machine the paper remaining stationary "Ink-pads are located at each side of the Impression point and all the type except the one in printing position are inked every time the impression lever is depressed "A dial is provided which indicates the length of paper An inches which has passed the printing point in printing each line and as the operator knows the width of the paper being used the time to stop printing at the end of ' the line is indicated" THE MACHINE STILL WORKABLE Experts who have examined the machine hold that if speed be eliminated the old Typographer is capable of taming out work fully up to the standard of neatness clearness and beauty possible with the best typewriters of today Mr Burt's invention having found little market be turned to other things In 1833 he was appointed associate justice of the Macomb circuit court and in 1852 was in the Michigan state legislature serving as chairman of the committee on internal improvements A communicant of the Baptist church he was also a Mason July 4 1813 he married Miss Phoebe Cole of Erie County New York and was the father of five sons' John Alvin Austin Wells and William Burt all of whom he trained to be surveyors He died in Detroit August 18 1858 And now his grandson Horace Eldon Burt Patchogue Long Island who recently celebrated his ninetietia ilirthday is hoping that he may live to see the inventor elected to the Hall of Fame in 1935 which is the time of the next election Such recognition the 90- year-old grandson holds would not only be recognition of the genius of his grandfather but would be an acknowledgment that America was first in a great invention PLAITS TURN TO WALLIES In AdverfOty Many Soot Factories Styled Through By-Products - From the Cleveland Plain Dealer Within forty miles of Cleveland is an ancient flour mill which has been given the greatest boom of a century long career by this depresatom Its burrs are burring almost twenty 111 four hours a day now grinding out flour for farmers at a coat of about 1 cent a pound They take a bushel of wheat worth 40 cents cash to the mill and get forty pounds of flour Ilere is one way some Ohio farmers are beattke depression It is probable that many other such examples of economic short max could be discovered A recent survey in Illinois allows that some smart farmers there have been very atmcessful in marketing 40 and 50-cent grain at or more by turning it into livestock They have watched the market instead of pond int their time damning the farm board Thus they have solved their own farm relief problem Nor are such instances of business alertness confined to agriculture There is even more of it in manufacture Hundreds of plants which have found their chief product stymied by depression have stepped into profitable sidelines and kept their books out of the red A well known piano manufacturer Is doing well with speedboats In these quick changes of output the smaller business has been at an advantage It can turn on a dime and save a lot of them The gradual accumulation of these profit able by-products of depression should be watched Some day when no one is looking they may push us past that corner which everyone has been looking for and no one
