THE HIGH COST OF LOAFING
It is the high cost of loafing rather
than the r. high cost of living that
troubles America today,' irt the opinion
expressed in a recentissue of the
"Corn Exchange," the monthly maga-
zme -oi tne Gorn luxcnange JMational
Board of ? Philadalphia. The paper
says that the country is producing
less per hour, per man, than before
the war although the' rate of con
sumption is greater. This being true,
prices continue to advance - and fur
ther advances may be expected until
an economic balance is effected be
tween production and "consumption.
The solution of the problem as in
dicated by President Wilson, Governor
Harding, of the Federal" Reserve
Board, and others, is to increase pro
duction and reduce expenditures.
Investigation by a4 large manufac
turing plant of Philadelphia, says
"Corn Exchange," recently showed
that under identical ' circumstances
the production per man per hour was
one half more before the war although
wages have been doubled. . . Another
investigation which covers several
states and which was reported in the
same paper showed that while the av
erage wage per man increased 240 per
cent .the production per man, per
hour, had decreased 62 per cent.
"The man who loafs on the job",
says the paper above named, "no'
matter what division of society he be
longs to deliberately elects to surren
der his claim to be an honest man, for
he is pretending" to do something that
he knows he is not doing. v This low
ering of the moral ' standard of the
people of the nation menaces the
stability of the state.? ; ,
The paper concludes; "Let us be
honest with ourselves by; recognising
the high duty of working at maximum
speed at. whatever task circumstances
bring to us. The loafer is; father of
the liar, and the lair, is father. ,of .the
traitor to all we hold dear in: America.
It is the worker who has always won,
the shirker who has always lost. .Let
us stop talking about the high cost of
living. Let us put a stop to the high
cost of loafing."
GIVING "ALL THE NEWS'
We presume there never was a
newepaper in any locality that gave
all the local happenings. It is often
that someone comes: or ..goes that the
reporter does not see. It happens
the family is missed several times.
They get the impression that the ' ed
itor does not care to mention them.
This is a mistake. In most country
towns the local work is the hardest
vork connected with the newspaper.
.-man may be a good editorial writer
but flat failure in the local work, and
vice versa. 1 Editorial material is- ob
tained by study, by reading news
papers, sometimes by using scissors.
Personals and local happenings
can't be read and clipped from other
papers, not by a jugful. It takes
physical as well as mental exertion to
get out four oi six columns of local
news in a town of this size. Most
people take a local paper to get the
local happenings. Don't be afraid to
tell the editor or reporter that you
have friends visiting you.There are
lots 'of people who are interested in
your friends. You owe it as a duty
them to let your friends know of their
doings.. Perhaps you think the paper
shows partiality, but just see if the
paper does't treat you. right if you
give it a chanceV-Union " Spring Ad

EDUCATION LETTER NUMBER 4
There is a feeling that the pupil in
school can and should be brought into
closer touch with the life of the com- t
munity, that the school as an' institu-
tion can and should be mfltie more
useful to the community as a whole,
or in other words that, "The school
should be made a social centre." I
shall here suggest some of the meth
ods by which the rural school and
farm community actually can -be
brought into closer relations. -
The first means of making the rural
school a social center is through the
course of study. I do not mean the
rintroduction of new . subjects, : neces-
sarily, although this might be done in
some instances with good results, but
to so teach the old studies as to make -them
seem vital and human. To il- 7
lustrate; geography used to be ap- .
proached from the standpoint of the"
solar system. It now begins with the
school house and the pupil's homes,
and works outward from the things "r
that the child sees .and knows to the
things that it must imagine. History,
writing, reading, the sciences, and
even other subjects can be taught so
as to connect, them vitally. and defin
itely with life of farm community.
The study of the streams,, the soils,
studies that have to do with the loca- .
tion, of homes, of villages the study of
the weather, of the common trees and
plants, of domestic animals all these
things will give the child a better
start in, education, a better compre
hension of the life he is to live, and a
better idea of the business of farm
ing, a better notion about the imporr
tance of agriculture, and will tend to
fit him better for future life either on
the farm or anywhere else, than can
any amount of the mere book knowl
edge presented in the usual ' way. I
believe as a matter of fact, that ; pu
pils can be trained under this method
just as well in?the ordinary branches
as" under the old'lanV -f V-- ..
Through the social activities of the
pupils is a second way of makings the
rural school a social centre. By this v
I mean that the pupils as a body can
cooperate for certain purposes, and
that this cooperation will not only se- :
cure some good results' of aij immedi
ate character that can be seen and ap
preciated by every one, but that it will -teach
the spirit of cooperation-and
there is hardly anything more needed
today in rural life than this spirit of .
cooperation. I doubt if the ., schools
can perform a better service than to
train young people to work together
for common ends. Here comes in the
work in-the preparation for exhibits
at the county fair, county commence-'
, and similar endeavors. 'It is
not so much the doing of new things
that counts most, but the important
item is that the school has been OR
GANIZED for these definite pur
poses, and the work is carried on sym
tematically. I need here present no '
argument to show the value of this
sort of cooperation to the pupils, to
the teacher, to the school, to the
parents, and ultimately to thd com
munity as a whole. v
