Freight Kates and Printing- Rates
It may be possible that the print
ers are charging the State too much
foi the public printing. But isn't the
governor a little out of his own path
when he threatens to buy a State
piant to do all of the printing.
It may be the proper thing to do,
but the railrHads are said to be charg
ing too much for hauling freight.
It-may be that the governor will
buy the railroads and give the folks
cheaper freight rates; and buy up the
J.rint shops and give the State its
books at the minimum cost.
Well; this would be a fine thing for
consumer buys. A stabilized murket

Learn from Lindbergh
The thoughtful young men today who consistently save a part
of their regular earnings have had a new inspiration in the achieve
ments and glory of their fellow-countryman, Colonel Charles A.
Lindbergh, America's interpid airman. They know the one factor
which made all possible wa» the fact that he had $2,000 of his
money to invest i« the venture. Colonel Lindbergh was the largest
single contributor to the venture—throwing in all his savings

pilot. Colonel Lindbergh no doubt would today be an unknown
air-mail pilot—lF he had had no SAVINGS. Does this teach a
