Moulton, president of the Brooklyn Institution, "may be traced to aggressive labor movements early in 1937 which brought shorter hours and higher pay which were wholly unrelated to efficiency. The Freeman-Journal agrees with Dr. Moulton In this respect Of course all right thinking persons know It is for the general welfare to have labor receive good wages and have steady employment. But there Is a safe middle course. When costs seriously Interfere with consumption it finally means less employment, hence less pay in the aggregate. Consumers as well as producers must be Algona Boy in U. S. Navy Writes Good Letter KICKED FOR A GOAL/ "Let the people know the truth and the country Is aafe."—Abraham Lincoln.

The effort failed, because other nations in the coffee- growing belt could not be persuaded to even burn their coffee, let alone cut production. Now Brazil is going out Into the open market with its full crop of coffee. The United States is not the only nation that can grow corn, but it is the principal nation that has the soil, plus the climate, plus the outlet for the supply near world demand. And. because each state can and should, act as one unit in a national machine, control of the production of corn or any other U. S. crop is possible. As a drastic measure, we recently slaughtered Pigs. We then heard great talk of a shortage of meat, but today that cry has subsided. The alaughter was painful, but not a national calamity W e will not have to burn our surplus corn, or slaughter and destroy our surplus pigs, if a well- rounded, permanent and sensible program of farm crop and soil rotation and crop control can be adopted. It ia defying all the evidence at hand to say that crop control is not necessary, and that open competition and the limit in production would be best for the agricultural belt for ^ e J^ tl0n ,, needi! a good cr °P control plan for its own welfare, just as the South American countries could use one in the coffee market Let ways, tax contributions from the people, are spending part of the money buying lottery tickets, playing poker, shooting craps, or engaging in other gambling enterprises with gift money. • » • Congress Should Represent People Humboldt Ind.: Congress seems to be getting back to the thing for which it was created: making, repealing or remaking the laws that are to govern the people who elected the congressmen. Congress should consider the recommendation of the president and at the same time remember the wishes and welfare of the pepole in the home precincts. Also let It be remembered that the people come first; the recommendations of the executive second. When congress assumed its rubber stamp attitude in 1933 there was a crisis that semed to make the attitude necessary. The crisis has passed. It is now time for congress to assert itself and function as the constitution intended.

During all this trip It meant extra duty for every one aboard, but all pitched in and did their best even though they were short of food and fresh maneuver*. At present it looks a» though we ihall be able to keep out of the Far-Bait conflict, but we can only hope thtt it continue* to be the •ante until thef manage to come to some kind of terms over there. Few men' have been ordered over there already, but no ships have left and everyone Is wishing that If the call does come it will not he tor their ship.

' Two pusher propellers mounted behind the big Allison engines lift Airacuda swiftly to more than 30 000 feet, speed it through the skies at an estimated 300 m. p. h. Many of the machine's details ar e still secret but revealed last week were Alrcuda's wing spread, 70 ft. (25 ft less than the Douglas DC-3) its length 58 fet., and its weight loaded around 15.000 Ibs.

ARMY ON WHEELS TEXAS PREVIEW SAN ANTONIO, Texas: The largest motorized army maneuvers ever held in the Western Hemisphere reached their climax in Texas last week as the "P. I. D." (Proposed Infantry Division) of the U. S. Army under consideration by the War Department for two years, was tested for the, first time under combat conditions. Consequence of the Texas maneuvers, which started two months ago, is likely to be a wholesale reorganization of the U. S. Army. During the War, an infantry division consisted of about 22,000 men, divided into two infantry brigades of two infantry regiments each. • one Ship Beads Sooth On November 12th w» once more head for California and the "sunny south" to spend the winter before going out on maneuvers next spring.
