We have heard it many times. In fact, we have thought it and said it ourselves.

IT PAYS TO ADVERTISE The Housewife Knows Best People in the government, as well as out of it, are alwayi seeking new controls of one kind or another over business, on the theory that this is necessary to protect the public. So an editorial appearing in the Portland Orgecmian is very much in point. It observes: "The U. S. senators who have given themselves the assignment of protecting the American housewives against the wiles oi packagers and labelers of foodstuffs ought to vMit our supermarket. "The housewife we know best doesn't need a senator to help her, With her beady, little robin eyes missing nothing, she moves from shelf to shelf, hefting packages and studying labels and prices.

Place To Start The military budget, following the missive increases asked by the President in his broadcast of July 23 and his message to Congress that followed the next day, is some $47.5 billion for this fiscal year. The result will be a deficit of billions It is obviously necessary to now reduce government costs wherever passible. The President has taken some notice of this need. Specifically, he pointed to the post office deficit. It runs to about $700 million a year. The only remedy is higher post office charges.
