Regarded first as au impractical toy and taken up at the beginning by the rich and well-to-do who had money to waste, the motor vehicle gradually grew in favor as it became perfected and its merits as a means of locomotion won it standing. Henry Ford popularized it by putting on the market a cheap car, the output of mass production. Before long the motor buy ing public had extended downward from the opulent classes to t those whose incomes had barely supported them before. Once in the game it is hard to break away. In the end the car of one sort or another has become a part of the investment and position in all cases.

Those unable to . their Opulent neighbors With the automobile came the desire to travel. Others were doing it and reporting the pleasures and experiences of their trips. With the old bus right at hand, why not get some of the comforts of life ourselves ? The cost of locomotion was reduced, generally, by using the car, but costs incident to travel dipped further into the budget. Then there was the loss in earnings while absent hack to former depressions, what a change ! There is today a distinct spirit of socialism, manifested in many different, ways. The old feeling of resignation and complacency on the part of the have nots, who were satisfied to get along as well as they could on what they had, has given way to a settled determination that t,hey will have, come what, may. Having tasted of the fleshpots of Egypt, they are not content to go back to husks. They find in the Declaration of Independence that the pursuit of happiness is one of the inalienable rights of men, and they construe this to mean the agencies of pleasure which money alone will buy. They dont intend to grovel in the dust while others are taking the high road. While not demanding an equal distribution of wealth, they want enough income provided them to live up to a standard much higher than the rewards of their own exertions or their service to the world would enable them to live. The difference, they feel, must come from somewhere, and government is the most likely source. How government is to do this concerns them but little, so that they get it. Thats the problem of the politicians. Have it they must. We see so many outcroppings of this spirit of socialism, evidenced in so many different ways. Families whose income has been cut by hard times living right along on the same scale, without real effort at retrenchment. Bound not to give up anything they have had, however unnecessary to their existence. As their reserve fades, away they run their credit as long as, that lasts, really living upon tradesmen and others. Still looking, like Micawber, for something to turn up, without trying to turn it up. These are not the traits of our forefathers and foremothers, whom we are apt to regard as crude. Perhaps they were, but if they had followed the course many of today are pursuing, well, we, their descendants, might not be here at all. There ' is an old precept, You should cut your garment according to your cloth. The rich and well to-do, out of- their surplus means, can spend freely without jeopardizing their future. It is of general advantage that they should. Those of limited incomes or uncertain employment cannot in common safety disregard their condition in life. To them keeping up with Lizzie is risky business. Nor is it true that happiness in life depends upon the amount of money one expends. Money wasted brings remorse, especially when it is needed later for necessary living. One thing is certain either the concept of things must change, back to the thrifty ways of the earlier days, or we shall see a definite alteration of our politico-economic strut ture, amounting to a division of wealth. Wealth in the hands of those who have it will be heavily taxed and the proceeds distributed on some basis among those who have less of it than will give them the standard of living they think they should have. When they" become the majority, this will happen unless the wheel turns the other way. And this latter we greatly doubt. HANCOCK Gordon Gilbar was on a business trip in Richford Sunday.

With modern machinery farm work is not as taxing as years ago, not to mention the autos, good roads and radios that have made farm life less isolated. 'In the days of our pioneer forefathers a healthy man choosing idleness instead of labor on the land, would have been called some very unflattering names. Our ancestors who built a new civilization in the wilderness had an element of iron in their fibre. We shall never completely solve our unemployment problem until we shake off our security loving flabbiness and recapture some of their zest for hard undertakings. Vergennes Vermonter. . Case of the Chain Stores It will come as somewhat of a surprise to many people that the chain stores over the United States bought $10,500,000 worth of Vermont farm and manufactured products djiring the year 1937. Also according to th$ survey made by an association serving chain stores there was also expended about $1,700,000 in wages, to Vermont residents who are employed by these chains. Something like $800,000 was paid in rentals and $1,200,000 for repairs, equipment, heat, light and services from local suppliers. The advertising of these chains in Vermont amounted to $300,000 and taxes amounted to $400,000. While the survey showed that about one-tenth of all Vermont chain stores are locally owned, there are 2,700 stockholders in the other chains who reside in Vermont. These stockholders are in various walks of life and reside in many Vermont cities and towns from St. Albans to Brattleboro. The survey further showed that there are 1,297 men and women employed in Vermont chain stores and that the average salaries of the managers is $2,134. Now and then some criticism comes against the chain stores from the fact that they have put many independents out of business. Yet these chains buy Vermont products, employ Vermont labor, pay Vermont taxes and use Vermont services such as heat, light and power. The chains though do not always sell for less than the independents. On many commodities retailing at small amounts they have built up a large volume of business through a system of operation that would not be profitable for an independent merchant. This system of merchandising reduces the spread. It must be admitted that improved methods of merchandising by the chain stores have greatly increased the consumption of food products and the use of other commodities. Chain store advertising, particularly of food products, has brought about a greater sale of the products of the farm than would have come about through independent merchandising. One of the reasons for this is that the independents would not have caried on such extensive advertising campaigns. There may be reasonable arguments against the chains, yet it is fair to assume that their operation has considerably increased the consumption of farm products. Burlington Suburban List. Let These Children In Yesterday the nation celebrated the Fourth of July, anniversary of the day it cut itself loose from Europe. One thing that made this a great nation was its long-standing habit of welcoming the poor and the oppressed of all lands. We seem to be getting away from that habit, rapidly. Maybe its in evitable; evolution or something. Nevertheless, we think the treatment given the Wagner child refugee bill by the Senate Immigration Committee up to now has been pretty shabby treatment. This is the bill to admit 10,000 German refugee children year to this country for the next two years, all of them 14 or younger, about half of them Jews and half Gentile, support of each of them to maturity to be guaranteed beforehand by some responsible person or group in this country. The bill has been stalled in committee for weeks. Substitutes are now being offered, pne of which is a proposal to admit the children as urged by Senator Wagner, but to suspend all quota immigration for five years, Another is a proposal that the 10,000 refugee children per year be included in the regular German quota of 27,370. We think Senator Wagner is right when he says neither of these substitute schemes is acceptable to him. Each of them looks as shoddy to us as do the arguments advanced against the bill. We brag about our freedom from dictators and our tolerance for all races and all creeds in this country. When it is proposed that we make it a little easier for one dictators victims to get out of his reach, a lot of us start finding reasons why we should nt do that. Its too much like the Pharisee who passed by on the other side, as con trusted with the Good Samaritan who paused in his trip to help out the beat en-up victim pf roadside thieves. Cer tainly Germans in disfavor with Hitler, whether they are Jews or Gentiles, are among the most hounded and helpless people in the world today. Lets pass this bill before Congress adjourns. Its little enough as a humanitarian gesture. As for its being too much of a strain on our already strained economic system with these childrens support guaranteed until they come of age, all that the measure can do economically to us will be to bring in some more paying consumers of food, clothing, fuel, luxuries. And were always looking for more paying consumers. New York Daily News. vice" at the church with Rev.
