Another way is through deficit financing charms and a swelling federal debt, inevitably leading to a new wave of inflation and further degradation of the dollar. Even th >o who support the ever-growing power of the central government — at the expense of state and local rights, obligations, and independence — should think twice about such programs as these. It is no longer a question r.i what some or many of us may think desirable — it is a hard- rock question ivf what we can afford. And, the world situation being what it is, we simply can't afford to add more frosting to the welfare cake. Survival is going to take all the energies and resources we have to spare.

In the face of a great deal of skepticism, they worked on the idea that the proper way to sel lwas at low unit profits — and to make a satisfactory profit through big volume. It worked, and other kinds of retailers have fitted the idea into their own operations. Mass distribution has been applied successfully to the sale of all the necessities — food, clothing, household wares, variety goods and so on. The saving to consumers that efficient, low- cost, highly competitive retailing has made possible is enormous, and beyond calculation. Our American living standards have risen accordingly. And Then He Screamed Mo-n people pay their federal income taxes via the withholding system. The employer keeps back a certain percentage of the paycheck and tu.'ij. it over to the government. Many workers don't have any accurate idea of just how much is deducted, so some concerns have adopted novel ways of driving the lesson home. One, for instance, set up two adjoining pay whit', v.s At the first each employee was given his full check, without deductions. But he had to go at once to the second window and shell out his tax for that pay period. Another used a different means of achieving the same purpose. An employee whose pay was Lost — $228 Billion! Who gets hurt when inflation sets in, and the and unemployment funds, dollar depreciates? $100 a week was given the full amount, without any /deductions, for three weeks. But at the end of the fourth week the pay envelope held a paltry $23.60. When he screamed in protest the tax story was explained to him. His four-week bill was $76.40, and the company had taken it all in one big bite, instead of four smaller ones. Employees who suddenly have been jolted by the size of the tax bite, usually develop a less complacent viewpoint. They see the connection between high spending and the lump of tax money chopped from their paychecks. The country needs more of that kind of Jolting of the taxpayers. In giving praise to Fayette County Iowa, let's not forget Upper Iowa University in Fayette, that college on the hill.

The business man who continually advertises. About his business his wife hardly ever criticises. — E. M. Albright c-b-c The nearest some people have ever been to wisdom, was when they cut their wisdom teeth. TRY LEADER WANT ADS FOR SURPRISING RESULTS But that was only the begin- ing. With the throttle wide open, Barton began to drive in the big earth gripping machine which placed him second to champion Pete Folse, also of Tampa, at the season's end. Big Buzz has continued his torrid pace of driving in 1961. He is one of the biggest drivers in the league .consequently, he could be considered the most greedy. A report made by the Economists' National Committee on Monetary Policy may help you answer that question. It says that a loss of over $228 billion, or 57 per cent, in purchasing power has been experienced by savers on average holdings in six categories for the period 1939 to 1959-60 because of this depreciation. The six categories are U. S. savings bonds; time deposits in banks; savings capital in savings and loan associations; life insurance in force; annuities paid out, and social security trust Just about everybody has been hit, in one or more of these savings categories. And most of the people, obviously, have small or moderate means. The inflationary blow is particularly cruel to those who live on fixed incomes, as provided by annuities, social security payments, and so on. The dollar's value in purchasing power has gone down by more than half, in a dismayipgly short period of time. Will we have the strength, the wisdom, and the political courage to save what is left of it?
