The New Year is here with every promise that it will give to us increased prosperity and happiness. The old saying, "Life is what we make it, and how we take it," is as true as gospel. If we start the now year right we will have a better year than if we start it wrong New resolutions are in order on New Year's Day. Life is made up of habit and it does not take long to form new habits and forget the old ones. Start oft on the right foot today and forget old troubles and grievances. Smile when it hurts and count ten before speaking when angry and be surprised at.yourself for the new friends you will make. After nil 5s said, friends are the greatest asset In this world.

We are somewhat inclined to agree with City Superintendent of Schools Roscoe Pulliam of Harrisburg, Illinois, who has issued orders to school principals to discontinue the practice of having children form lines and march to and from classrooms. "To keep step in set lines is useful only in penitentiaries and institutions and students in Harrisburg schools are not being reared for such life," he says. There is something vastly more human in a group of children (or adults for that matter) going into or from a meeting place in orderly groups than i there is in the strict, disciplinary "lockstep" line which we see so much in evidence today. It is perhaps a little easier for the teachers in laying down an ironclad rule such as keeping a straight and unbroken line but behavior in small groups is more essential for later life. Marching out of public gatherings, theatres and such places Is not in vogue: why should children be taught thus in the public schools? Is this another example of a time- honored, antiquated and medieval custom which is being observed for no other good reason except for it's agc- veneration? If we could only get out of this old "rut" in America—this idea JcnUWneH iiivcQi>*6wv*-"ej ~^ was merely a stop-gap, wished upon unwilling dinner party by Governor Fisher with the admonition: "Well, you wouldn't have Vare; so, how do you ike the substitute?" Last week your correspondent had occasion to refer to the plight of the middleman, and the growing probability that he was about to be squeezed out of the agricultural picture. It was also announced that Julius Barnes, chairman of the United States Chamber of Commerce and unofficial "director of prosperity", by authority of President Hoover, had been enlisted to lend his aid to the commission merchants in the belated fight which they are now about to wage against the cooperative" policy of the farm board. Mr Barnes denied before the senate lobby committee that he had attempted to taring pressure upon the farm board to abandon or modify its gram co-operative project. He had acted only, he said, as an intermediary in ^,. "WhenVicks VapoRub was introduced, mothers especially were quick to appreciate it, because it is just rubbed on and cannot upset children's delicate stomachs, as "dosing" is so apt to do. Of course it is equally good for adults. Today, the whole trend of medical practice is away from needless "dosing," and the demand for Vicks has grown until it is necessary to again raise the figures in the famous slogan.

On Monday, however, Mr. Legge asserted emphatically that the board was determined to carry out its farm relief program regardless of the fact "that some private business interests are strenuously objecting." The Chamber of Commerce, he said, apparently wants the farm board to "hang its clothes on a hickory limb and not go near the water " The farm relief program contemplates the organization of at least 80 per cent of" their output. This program is in complete accord with the law If the board is successful, there will be established a farmer-owned marketing machine that will handle enough of the crop to set prices and control the market. Even if the board has agreed to make loans to local elevators at the same rates as to farmer- owned cooperatives, the independent grain jobber will still find himself ruined in the squeeze. Farm relief, as embodied in the law enacted and as it is slowly being made effective by the farm board, puts the farmer in the place of the independent grain jobber.
