"This is business's program for |the future. To bring it about as quickly as possible will require your help. For its accomplishment will need legislative action—action that you can encourage. Postwar tax policies that leave sufficient funds for expansion. Laws that clearly prevent unregulated monopoly. Labor policies that establish the responsibilities: of both labor and management: And business operation under law instead of by unpredictable 'directive.'" « * * Here is a program which is sound enough. It; is no panacea. It doesn't actually contain a single new thought! or idea. But it would get the job done if it were actually carried out fully, honestly, and completely by ALL business. . High wages, lower prices, opon competition, reasonable profits, good labor relations, and full investment of surplus I capital—these would naake any ecbnomlc system run. like a top. The I question is whether greed, antagonism toward labor unionism, arid ' fear of government policies will overbalance good judgment and good resolution. But that question will never be answered unle.s.s we at least give biislness a chance to try its new program and an ijtmosphere which THE lOLA REGISTER, SATXJRDAY EVENING, DECEMBER 80,1944. lOLA, KANSAS They've Noif Joined Up fV^ijh the Eneiny K .iiuilon to the problem of full employment 'tfter the war.

They carf't be made through government hand-outs—which only increase public debt' and raise taxes still further. '"Two things are required to put this "process of prosperity' into operation.

S. PAT. Off. tX-3o A PURITAN VnXAGE IN 1680 V i\N his return from his morning ^ walk about the farm on this April morning. Captain Walling went briskly up the narrow, \m- earpeted stairs of the salt-box hbuse. He wanted to speak to Harriet a moment and tell her that he had given young Oliver Hill- nian permission to be her steady cdmpany. iThat young lady was sitting alone in her narrow little room engaged in a siscret operation. She was bending over a baking dish of pottery that contained milk in which she had poured a half a cupful of vinegar and the juice of a number of iJears. With this device she was trying to rem- €ay what she considered a serious defect of her complexion. She was a healthy, buoyant girl with rosy cheeks and a sun-tanned appearance. In some way she had learned that fine ladies were always pale, and that in Boston some'of them wore masks when they went out of the house so the sun would not ruin their com- piexionp. This was .long before cosmetics and their use had become a Jjne art, otherwise Harriet •.liight have given her cheeks an unhealthy pallor at the cost of only a few pence. Besides, any device which was contrived to ciiange a complexion given by God would have been sternly frowned upon by the Puritan ciders. If she had used as much as a single dab of face powder, or a touch of eyebrow blackever, they would have had her up in meeting, weeping before the congregation and confessing to the sin of vanity. y/hcn her father knocked at her door she hastily put the pan of milk under the bed, and stood up tO: receive him. He did not sit do\vn but stood smiling and said rather gallantly, "I have a prince for my young princess." Harriet said gravely, "What do you mean, Father"/" just as if Oliver Hill- man had not already told her of his interview. H*er father replied that he had consented to the youKg man's request, but he would not have done so if he had not 'fhough it Would plfcase her. j-*'! do not want to force you to do any^ing," he assured her. Ha |Tiet stood, as if in quiet reflection, for a moment and then I jaid^ sedately, "It's all right. Falser, If it pleases you I shall be jatisfwd. He seems to be" a devout and ''serious young man.- I hope f may grow to care for him." She plight have added that she had be , meeting him xjuietly and secretly for a month or .more in Various out-of-the-way places, but -she said nothing, because, she con- pludefi, after a b-ief consideration, Riat -such a statement would not add her father's good hvrnior. "JVEXT day was ia Thursday, and every Thursday in • Puritan ivlassachusetts wa- knowri as Lecture Day. On Uvat day all work, ftjccegt what was absolutely necessary, was suspended and the people, after listening to dn edify- ifig Jecture, or fsermon,- in the hiprn'ing, turned to the enjoyment o?. sijorts, games and gdssij) lor Ihe rest Of the day. .'MOA of these- activities took pjace on the village green, wlierc the sti)cks, pillory and v'hipping h3f)st >verc also plpccd. This conjunction of pleasure and puni.';h- incnlr had a benign purpose. People who became too boisterous, pr \vho -were drinking too much, or w^o were attempting to inveigle a maiden, or who were spreading ^c.jndalous stories about their mighbors, had only to turn their eyes. toward the southern end of I'h^ village green and there they vj-tjutd see, sitting miserably in the stocks, those who had failed to 'bt-have with piety and decorum on^s^me previous occasion. ilarshness was a characteristic of tJ\e Puritan mind, and the Itaj-shness had a sadistic -streak. •Therefore, it was natural and quite in keeping_^yith the .essential order of things, according to the Puritan way of thinking, that the stocks should stand on the village green, to remind the pleasure-seekers that all is not beer and Lkittles in this world of sin and tomptation. The Puritan meetinghouses were unhealed, and as cold as ice in the winter season, wheJi they inighl just as well liave liad chinnnrys and lireplaces. But a warm and comfortable church would have seemed to make religion too easy. To the Puritan mind tlierc was a touch of evil in almost every human activity that happened to be pleasant. One of the colony's statutes, for instance, forbade a man to kiss his wife in public. The chronicles of the time record the case ol a Boston sea captain who had been away for a year on a long voyage. One day the town crier went around with his drum to announce that tlii.s seafarer's slii |5 was coming • into llie bay. The captain's wife went down to the water's edge to welcome her husband. As soon as he came ashore ho took lier in his arms and kis.sod lier, with many i)eople looking on. For tiial .serious pit'cc of misbehavior he was taken be- foi'e a magistrate and sentenced to two hours in the pillory on his first afternoon on land. Curiou.sly enough, these harsh restricti<jiis nn licrl'ectly natural and liumau ])l<'.'i;;iirc.s did not apply to liquor drinking. People who got drunk were, of course, taken up and lined or set in the stocks; and the taverns had to close at the curfew hour and also on the Sabbatli, but otherwise there was no curb at all on drinking. As a matter of fact, • everyone drank liquor, or beer or cider—and that really means everybody from ministers and magistrates down to nursemaids and 2-year-old babies. If a prohibitionist had appeared anywhere in the colonies he would have been considered a crackpot. (To Be Continued) Moran Happenings MORAN.
