ANDREW more farm and factory machinery, more clothing, more labor-saving devices in home and industry. It is purchases of things such as these that make new jobs, new purchasing power, higher national income, and greater opportunity for both capital and labor. Spend wisely and frugally. Keep your budget balanced. Don't get yourself in the hole. But always remember that sound spending is vital to the maintenance of our standard of living, to the advancement of recovery, and to the ultimate attainment of prosperity. AWAKENING THE PUBLIC The National Board of Fire Underwriters has prepared a special radio program, to be used by fire chiefs during:. Fire Prevention Week, which is to be observed this year between October 9th and 15th. Using the style which is so popular in present-day broadcasts the fire chiefs.will ask questions of selected contestants concerning fire-resistive construction and other fire problems. Their answers will be graded in the approved question-bee manner. A complete script is offered by the National Board, and provision is made for additions or changes that might increase its interest to local audiences. It is pointed out that this program could also be profitably used as a special feature for presentation before social, luncheon or civic clubs. The program covers many phases of the fire problem. Questions are asked, for example, concerning the immensely important subject of heating plants. The fire chiefs then correct and amplify the answers. Hazards of roofs, chimneys, electricity, etc., come in for consideration. The safe handling of inflamable liquids is 'covered, as is the subject of combustible materials. And specific suggestions are made for correcting a number of the common hazards that exist, unknown to their occupants, in millions of American homes. This broadcast idea is but one SAFETY PROGRAMS IN INDUSTRY PAY HUMAN DIVIDENDS Safety education pays dividends, for industrial deaths dropped from a probable 35,000 in 1913 to an approximate 19,500 in 1937. Furthermore, 285,000 people escaped occupational death and 28,000,000 more were saved from disabling injuries during the 24-year period; all industry put together has made good a decrease in casualty rate of some 18 per ccnt To establish this remarkable record took the combined efforts of welfare agencies and insurance companies, of government and industry. "No dollars-and-cents figures can express what this has meant in reducing suffering, bereavement, lost opportunities, and blighted lives," declares Henry Morton Robinson, writing on industry's accident problem in The Rotarian Magazine. "Yet employers have also found that decreasing industrial risk is vastly profitable. The United States Steel Corporation, for example, shows that an expenditure of 25 million dollars for safety protection and education has made good a saving of 117 million dollars in injury claims alone, not to mention the reduction in labor turnover, lost time, and slowed production." Industry's accident problem, va'ried as industry itself, divides into two classes: the slow injury to health due to bad working conditions, and the sudden jeopardizing of life or limb from purely fortuitous circumstance, according to Mr. Robinson. Safety engineers today are constantly on the lookout for unsafe practices and unguarded machines. More important than safety precautions is proper clothing such as special gloves, shoes, goggles, helmets, acid-resisting pants and aprons, asbestos suits, and masks for noxious gases and for dust. To eliminate unsafe practices, which cause about 90 per cent of the accidents, according to the Metropolitan Life Insurance Company, programs of safety education which appeal to the workman's pride are being conducted in many firms, says Mr. Robinson. A du Pont plant can show 11,361,846 man-hours of consecutive- work by 4,000 employees without a single time-losing injury. "There will always be accidents as long as men are human and machines can kill," he concludes, "but the encouraging thing is that everywhere the idea is springing up that accidents are waste; not only waste, but criminal waste. And waste, fortunately, is something that Americans understand and abhor." ECONOMIC HIGHLIGHTS phase of a comprehensive program designed for Fire Prevention Week. Plans are more ambitious than ever before. The cooperation of civic organizations, public officials, insurance companies, newspapers, radio stations, and others has been obtained. The vital thing is to awaken a dormant public. If that is done, the forthcoming week will mark the start of .a greater campaign to conquer the fire demon. BUY WISELY "Buy the things you want and can -- afford to have." That is the thought expressed in a fine editorial printed recently in the Mansfield, Ohio, News-Journal. "There's too much inactive money," · the editorial says. "There has been ^- postponement of buying clothing, f ur- "-' nitnre, floor covering, draperies, electrical conveniences of various kinds-as well ae numberless other large and small items. "Construction of new homes, or remodeling of old ones, has been put off... "Out-dated automobiles have been continued in use by motorists who can well afford a new car. "All of these things have contributed to the general slow-down of industry and business -- thus encouraging the reign of fear that has engulfed so much of the nation... "Money is of no earthly good cept for use! ·"Earn, spend, save,' is a formula under ·which individual and national progress is assured." The man who spends less than his means would normally dictate, ie as much of a burden on the country as the man who continually spends more than he can afford. This country possesses on almost limitless market for commodities of all kinds. We need more homes, more care, more roads, On the day this is wrtiten, all Europe is an armed camp. The dread white posters proclaiming mobilization have appeared in the cities and towns of France. The British High Seag Fleet has steamed to battle stations off Scapa Flow. Germany has massed almost numberless legions on the Czech and French borders Mussolini has again pledged his friend- chip to Hitler, and reiterated his readiness to go to war for the Nazi- Fascist ideology. An ominous censorship overhangs Russia, where correspondents report troop movements on a vafit scale. Poland and Hungary, German allies both, are on a semi- war footing. Even in little Switzerland, an ironic press dispatch states, delegates to a League of Nations Disarmament Conference had to raise their voices to make themselves heard above the roar of Swiss army planes patrolling overhead. In Czechoslovakia, sad, able, peace- loving President Benes has signed the mobilization order, and every reservist has been called to the colors. A government of sweeping emergency powers has been established under the premiership of a Czech national hero one-eyed Inspector-General Syrovy, a military genius whose World War achievements are of an almost legendary character.' Prague and the other Czech cities are cut off from the world--no passenger trains are in operation, as all facilities of transport are needed for the movement of soldiers and war supplies; all civil aviation has been grounded, and the telephone lines, by order of the government, are being held open for official messages only. Yet, on this day, war has not yet come. For Hitler has given Czechoslovakia a week in which to answer his ultimatum. What happens then, will be known by the time this sees print. A resume of what has happened may prove helpful to the read- longed to the old Hapsburg Austrian empire, and there is ns'much or more racial difference between a Gernnin and an Austrian ag between an American and a Canadian, for example) but insisted that the "rights" of Poland and Hungary to other parts of Czechoslovakia be recognized as well. This meant the complete dismemberment of the republic. And that was a price that Mr. Chamberlain was unwilling to pay. He agreed to simply transmit the demands to Benes Jintl Syrovy; it is significant that he refused to recommend their acceptance. And the French followed the British lead. Further, by this time, in the short space of a few days, there had been a great change of sentiment in England and in France. Eden made a strong speech which was recaivod with tremendous approval, to the effect that the time has come when the dictators must be stopped if they arc ever to be stopped from dominating Europe. Baldwin, the former premier, called on Chamberlain and urged a stronger line. So did the brilliant Winston Churchill, leader of the anti-Chamberlain wing of the Conservative party. And in France, mobs gathered to cheer the Czechs--and hiss the Germans. In brief, what happened w:w a tremendous growth in a sentiment that might be expressed in this phrase: "We must fight sooner or later; we might as veil fifiht when our chances of victory are best." Can Germany win the next war? The best military experts think she cannot, even though Italy and some of the smaller central powers come to her side. They think an entente consisting of France, Britain and Russia would, in the long run, prove irresist ible. But they think that in the mean time, Europe would see horror an deprivation on an unprecedonte scale, what modern war means, witi its bombing of defenseless civilians Multiply vastly this grisly scene-and you will have an idea of what European war will very likely mean · __ a __ Europe's armies are much large now than in 1914. Russia has almos 20,000,000 men in her forces today, a: against 4,000,000 then. France ha 6,200,000, as against 1,380,000. Brit ain has 917,000 as against 803,000 Italy has 7,125,000, as against 2,000, 000. Only one central power, curious ly enough, has no greatly increased forces--Germany, with 3,600,000 sol diers now, as against 3,350,000 in 1914. These figures include reserves MURDER BY MOTOR CAR Murder by motor car K on the de cline, according to the National Safe ty Council. Traffic accident fatalitie for the past nine months have regis tered a steady 1 decline. This dcclim has taken place in the face of a sligh increase in mileage figures. All of which seems to indicate tha the speed crazed mass of 40,000,00( drivers, known as the motoring 1 pub lie, is slowly awakening to a nev found responsibility--safe driving Possibly the average driver is discov ering that the modern high spcet automobile can be a vehicle of hor rible death as well as of comfort and convenience. If so, a great stride is being made toward the day when once again the family car can trundled out for a week-end holiday with reasonable assurance that al will return intact. Sooner or later the motoring public will have to get the fact through its head that the present slaughtei on highways is criminally needless As was recently pointed out by the New York Times, "it will have to learn that murder by motor car--although it may not lead to the chair-is still murder and that it is the part of good morals, good sportsmanship and good citizenship to drive and walk safely." STRAIGHT THINKING ABOUT RAILROADS er confused and bedazzled by conflicting reports. When Chamberlain returned from his first visit to Hitler, met with Daladier and Bonnet and the French and British cabinets, and announced that all had agreed to "urge" the Czechs to give Germany the Sudeten area in return for guarantees of her territorial integrity in the future-an "urging" which meant bringing irresistible pressure to bear on the little democracy -- the world was aghast that the French and British should have eo shamelessly sold their ally down the river. But at the samo time, the world was grateful that peace had apparently been maintained, even though it did not like the price paid. Then Chamberlain went again to Hitler--and returned defeated. For the ex-housepainter had raised his price--he wanted not only the Sudeten (which he claims, without truth, once belonged to Germany; in reality, most of the Sudeten be- lt's time the people did some straight thinking about the railroads. It is apparent that there arc but two long-term solutions to the so- called transportation problem, regardless of temporary palliatives. One is to permit the lines a rate structure that will be sufficient to meet expenses and return at least part of the "reasonable return" of 6% per cent stipulated by the Transportation Act--a return which the industry has not been able to earn in a single year since the war. The other is to permit matters to drag on as at present, with more lines going bankrupt, until government ownership, with resulting tax subsidization of the industry, remains as the only way our principal medium of transportation can be kept going. What would the first .solution on- tail? It would mean a modest increase in freight rates that would average but a few cents per famll annually. No - industry would suffer serious harm. To the contrary, all industry would be benefited by increased railroad spending and employment New rolling stock would be purchased, service would be extendoc and improved in many instances, ant aren't given a living wage, which is all they ask for. No other business in the world, large or small, is expected to operate year after year and .spend more money than the law allows it to charge for its product. That is the heart of the railroad problem. EDITORIAL NOTES "The Republican contest for the present, has only party control as Lhe goal," blithely admits the rapidly reactionary Republican Hartford Courant, in describing session^ of the G. O. P. state committee in Connecticut. The spirit of the late J. Henry Roraback, who controlled the party in the Ktnto for 25 years like a feudal lord, was said to have hovered over the assemblage. An individual was "confirmed" a, stiitc chairman; another was "designated" as member of the national committee. Choices were made, before the rank and file of the committee hnd arrived, solely on the of which one Uncle Henry would have named in each category, he having held down both jobs himself, personally. "The gathering," says the Courant, "was one of tha=c affairs of which participants will not talk for publication but it appears from reports in circulation there was some quit? frank talk. The delegates do not have much definite basis for speculation on the ticket." This was said to be due. to uncertainty as to whether there would be "hand-picking of candidates by any one leader or by any one leader and a very small number of his sub-leaders." However, judging from the positive refusal of several "to be involved as candidates for the United States Senate nomination," the Courant account leaves the impression that the adoption of either picking process was a matter of indifference. The Connecticut maneuvers arc typical of defeatist attitude apparent at the other G. O. P. state conventions held to adopt platforms in the wake of primaries. They invariably followed the line of least resistance, except that in Pennsylvania the line of least resistance was followed twice. This was due to a reflex action based on realization that the platform was overly critical of the New Deal. To rectify that error the candidates publicly proclaimed their fealty to the "principles underlying" Roosevelt recovery and reform measures, although they indicated--as had Mr. Landon--a desire to make them "workable" under Old Guard management. And they would also make them as short lived as humanly possible and retain them concurrently with very drastic reduction of taxes --however that may be. The formula was similar elsewhere. In hopoles,? Democratic states like Texas, Missouri, Arkansas, ct al., the Republicans felt free to vent their undying contempt for every enactment of the New Deal--save adoration for the TVA in Tennessee. But in Washington state, Illinois, Ohio and a multitude of states which for six years have not favored G. 0. P. candidates, there was a perceptible soft' pedalling of adverse comment. In those states excoriation was oral. Instance the nominee for lieutenant governor in Wisconsin, in contradistinction to the mildly worded platform. This gentleman, a Mr. Markham, said: "Lasting prosperity is at hand if the people return to the time- proven principles of the Republican protective tariff." The Ohio convention, we read in the Cincinnati Enquirer's report of it, "was fully prepared to cheer all partisan sallies but waa cold and distant to Dr. Glenn Frank's exhortation to the party to shake off old conservatism. The greatest outburst," this chronicler continues, "came on the entirely extemporaneous reference by Mayor Stewart of Cincinnati, the temporary chairman, to George Washington'.} farewell address." much alike in some ways. Now, if you would be willing to take my advice, you would soon have a happy group out there. They couldn't play hard or fast enough, or be grateful enough to you." "All right," smiled Mrs. Joyce. "You have given me good advice before; just try us now." "You have spent a great deal of time and money getting thd?c Httlu fellows started on their ball team. But now you are showing no re-pud for it. Please listen," as several women had frowned and-tried to interrupt. "You demand instant obedience from them. Yon want them to remember to respect your wishes. But lo you ro?pect their wishes? Turn about is fair play, you know. You all knew they were planning the BIG game for the afternoon of the tenth. Fathers ami older brothers have all been invited. And then what docs one mother do?--deliberately plans a birthday party for her daughter Edith on their BIG day. And the mothers of all the small boys insist they must BO/' "But they can have their game some other day," snapped Mrs. Martin, the mother who had planned the party. "Couldn't the party be planned for another day? The eleventh is the real birthday. A change of a day or two would not make much difference. Edith herself is quite unhappy about it." "We can't have it on Sunday," objected Mrs. Martin. "No, but couldn't ib be on Friday afternoon, after school? I'm sure it would make them very happy if you called them in and told them that you would change the day." "I wonder if it is so important to them," sighed Mrs. Martin. "I'm sure of it. Just call Bobby and let him carry the word back to them. I'll guarantee you'll have so much gratitude you will never plan another thing on the date of a big game." Mrs. Martin went to the door and blew the whistle she used in calling Bobby home. Reluctantly he came. His feet dragged. His face was long. His eyes were dull. What a change when he received the message to carry back to the other boys. He sped over the ground like an arrow. His words acted like a charm. Instantly they sprang to position. They were practicing for the Big game.

It would mean that the government would have to spend billions of public funds to purchase the railroads and pyramid the national debt to still dizzier heights. It would mean annually heavier taxes to meet def- icts. It would mean poor service, if past precedent is any arbiter--don't forget the sad experience the country had with government operation during the war. It would mean that the country's largest single industry would be politically owned, politically managed and politically dominated-and would probably become the most menacing patronage machine in the nation. Dispassionate surveys have shown that the people are overwhelmingly opposed to government ownership of railroads. But that opposition won't be enough to stop it--if the lines FAIR PLAY Cora M. Silvius As I approached the house where I share a room with a friend, I heard animated voices. A number of women verc talking, and they seemed to be much annoyed. As I entered the hall, Mrs. Martin was saying, "It just roves that no child can be expected o show gratitude for anything a par- nt may do." These mothers and their children vere all so well known to me, I stopped. In a moment I understood what it was all about. I listened pa- iently hoping the mothers would feel ictter once they had voiced their irri- ation, for I wanted them to be wiling to listen to me, and I was an out- idcr. I picked up the field glass and ooked toward the ball field. The mailer boys of the neighborhood had een banded together into a baseball earn. Some of them went to kimler- ·arten, and some were in the first grade. Fathers and older brothers had helped with suits and other paraphernalia. We all went out to cheer when they had a game. This kind of play gave them good exercise, and it helped the mothers to know where they were. When at last there was a pause, I ai?kod if I might say a few words. They politely conceded. THE HURRICANE AND THE HIGHWAYS By Charles M. Upham I have travelled in the wake of a hurricane. I have soon death and destruction in New England. I also witnessed the way in which highways withstood that terrific blast and I wanb to tell you of the admirable part they played in bringing help and restoring order. The village where I used to live .sustained considerable mutilation and I was, of course, first of all concerned with the safety of my people and the extent of the damage to the places I knew as a boy. But I could not help but interest myself in the effect of the hurricane on the highways. Fortunately, there were no lives lost in our village, though many homes were smashed and trees uprooted everywhere, many of them 100-year-old elms, two to four feet in diameter. Although the highways were at first completely blocked by fallen trees, they were cleared within a few hours and were soon in full use again by traffic, despite the worst storm New England has ever experienced. The ability of the highway^ to cope with this situation made possible the transportation of food and medical supplies and prevented the deprivation in towns and smaller communities which so often follows major disasters. Train service between New York and Boston was interrupted and the railroad had to report to buses and the highways to complete its schedule. On my trip, I was carried by train through New Haven to Saybrook, Conn., thence by bus over Connecticut highways to Westerly, Rhode Island, and then by rail again from Westerly to Boston. This is a very definite example of variable advantages and the value of highway transportation even in extreme emergencies. Without the highway systems of New England functioning as they did in short order after the fury of the hurricane had subsided, considerably more people would have been thrust into destitute circumstances and many would have undoubtedly perished from want of food and need of medical attention. But the highways did not fail in their duty as public servants. They speeded up restoration and decreased human suffering. ' i Except where the whole countryside was flooded and in the few instances where a road was completely washed away, the entire highway- transportation syistcm was available for 100 per cent use only a few hours after the hurricane had delivered Its heaviest lick. This is another instance of the universal assistance -fend great value of our highway transportation system.
