3-Algana (la.) Upper Des Moines Tuesday, September 11, 1962 tippet Desfltomes THE RIGHT TO STRIKE Anyone who so desires, can always quit a job; there's no law that says you have to remain in one spot. And, anytime an organized group desires to go out on strike, they have a right to do so, within limits of law and order. In some occupations, this strike, however, must be preceded by honest efforts to mediate a settlement thrlough Federal channels. But nobody ever wins in a strike. The wages lost by those striking are seldom made up in following years, even if pay raises result. And strikes result in losses even to those not striking, because in some cases other, non- striking union members are required to contribute into a strike relief fund for those out on strike. As a matter of fact, everyone loses, probably the striker more than the concern that is struck. We wonder if the Chicago & North Western Railroad, for example, is too worried about the present strike. It does not seem to be. The railroad is at a standstill. But if the road has .been losing money as it claims, then it loses less t>y not operating at all. There has to be good common sense, on teoth the part of labor and management, in any situation. Unless a company can make a profit, it cannot remain in business, it cannot employ workers, and union leaders certainly must be aware of this. Nobody denies a union the right to strike, .but one can wonder if in the long run, any strike can benefit the strikers in today's era of minimum wage standards, 40 hour weeks, and Ather built-in protections for the working men and women. BANKRUPTCY - THEN AND NOW In the last 10 years, bankruptcy filings have increased in the United Sfatfes by 400 percent. Of that total, 90 percent are individuals going bankrupt and 10 percent are businesses, according to court records. Going bankrupt, it seems, has been made easier and more inviting with the passing years. Generally, unless fraud is proved, the bankrupt gets a legal discharge fr6m his debts and the people he owes can just write it off as a bad debt. The bankrupt is free from harassment on old debts, and can then s*art running up brand new debts, creditors willing, and in six years h can go bankrupt again. This all proves very interesting, and also unfortunately inviting for those whose debt seem to be surmounting their credit balances. However, if was not always so. In the days of the old Romans, the law permitted a creditor to kill a debtor and divide his body, or to sell him into slavery for the debt. Just what good dividing his body would do is not explained. Debtors' prisons were a feature of early-day American life and were a part of the penal code. Why bankruptcies are rising is a question that is absorbing lawyers, economists and sociologists, it seems. But right down at the root is the fact that our own revision of laws over the years has made it inviting to solve problems via the bankruptcy courts, that credit selling has made if easy to buy but hard to pay, and that STRICTLY BUSINESS ^SMELLS GOOD, TOO Le Mars Globe-Post - A Grant township fflymouth County) farmer is reported to have made a startling new scientific discovery, the discovery that extract of vanilla can be used as 0 lotion to keep away gnats and mosquitos. The Globe-Post was unable to ascertain the name of the benefactor of humanity who discovered that nice-smelling vanilla is more effective to ward off the pests, which are especially mean this year, than the evil smelling concoctions usually sold for this purpose. Word got around; others fried it and now ff is reported that everybody in GranMownship smells pretty Jasty because of the coafing""of vanilla. Vanilla does not contain xly-60-rzl or other mysterious chemicals. The best definition that fias been made by a school kid who said, "it's the opposite of chocolate." *_ Vanilla can be bought at any grocery store or drug store. No prescription is required. * * * ~—• "; He who indulges, bulges. we no longer possess the sense of honor which used to exist, in the days when the highest compliment you could pay a person was to say "His word is good." * * * EFFORT TO WIN STUNT RACE This nation's "great hurry" to get to the moon and other planets has been likened by former President Eisenhower to a "mad effort to win a stunt race." At the present moment we are spending something like 20 BILLION a year in the effort, a news magazine reports. Not many of us can really visualize the expected results from this project. To put a man on the moon and bring him back is expected to cost between $20 billion and $40 billion alone, for this one effort. Defenders of the program assert that the U. S. cannot afford to neglect the effort. Military men say outer space is "high ground" from which fo observe and fake action. To most of fhe resf of us, with feet on the earth, we can well wonder if the tremendous expenditure of natural resources and the life blood of tax revenue is aimed at progress, or disaster, in these space ventures.

A total of 63 scheduled airlines are operating in the United States and, of this number, 27 receive direct Federal subsidies. During the first quarter of 1962 individual subsidies ranged from 510,527 to $2,045,789. The total quarterly bite was S20.5 million. This would mean an annual handout of more than $82 million. These subsidy figures don't include air mail payments. Nor do they include the millions spent each year for Federal participation in airport improvements which make it possible for the airlines to expand and improve the services. These were out-and-out handouts. This is not necessarily to condemn the airline subsidy program. Only through government aid could many small, isolated communities have direct air service. Hundreds of towns and C'tes, particularly in the west, are examples of this. However, it does serve to point up the inescapable fact that Federal assistance is g,ven in many areas and is an economic fact of life Those who consistently and blindly condemn '-uch ass,stance to agriculture are being something short of realistic. magic iricks — and John reportedly put on a good show.
