We need not expect prosperity by borrowing more
money from the money sharks of the country and is
suing tax-free bonds to build public buildings and oth
er things we do not need.
The money hoarders would like to loan a few more
billions to the government and get tax-free interest
bearing bonds. It might stimulate business for a
while, but in the end it would lower the price of corn,
cotton, and wheat.
Our main trouble now is debt. So the proper thing
to do is not to go deeper and deeper in debt but to
come.out a bit. We are already crippled by political
pork-barrel log-rolling. We are not suffering for the
want of governmental conveniences but from an over
dose of debts, created by building needless post offices,
keeping up cruel navies, and many other things.
We hope Congress will be decent enough not to
waste billions of money for things we do not need.
The funniest thing that happened in politics last
week was the statement coming out from a Raleigh
political news bureau stating that both Ehringhaus
; and Maxwell wanted Fountain for the second primary.
iThe point is they don't want him in the first primary
and are fearful that there will tre no second primary
because it now looks as if there will be no second pri
mary with the sweeping lead that Fountain is taking.
Well, amid all the fun, we still think all are nice fel
Wealth Dominates the Congress
Wealth is about to override poverty again. Con
gress is going to raise the price of postage on letters
and keep it off of big incomes.
This means that the mother who writes to her son
will have to pay SO per cent more stamp tax. There
are many millions of such persons. The few thousand
extremely wealthy will therefore have to pay less in
Wealth has certainly got Congress by the nape of
The Other Side of the Depression
Hiere are two sides to everjr question, even the
depression. In a recent speech, Henry Ainsley, editor
of the Atnarillo (Texas) Globe-News, proceeded to
outline his reaction to the "hard times" now prevail
ing, summing it all up with "I like the depression."
Excerpts from his talk follow:

r«I like the depression. No more prosperity for me.
' "I have had more fun since the depression started
than I ever had in my life; I had forgotten how to
live, what it meant to have real friends, what it was
like to eat common everyday food. Fact is, I was
getting just a little high-hat. ~= ;— — .
"Three years ago, only one man of the Nws-Globe
organization could be out of town at a time, and he
had to leave at the last minute and get back as soon
as possible. Many times I have driven 100 miles to
a banquet, sit through three hours of bunk in order
to make a 5-minute speech, then drive the 100 miles
back so as to be ready for work the next morning.
"Nowadays, as many employees as are
invited make these trips, and we stay as long as we
want to. The whole outfit could leave the office now
and it wouldn't make any difference.
1 like the depression. I have time to visit my
friends, to make new ones. Two years ago, when I
went to a neighboring town, I always stayed at the
hotel. Now I go home with my friends, stay all night,
and enjoy home cooking. I have even spent the week
end with some of the boys who have been kind enough
to invite me. ' «
It's great to drop into a store and feel that you can
spend an hour or two or three or a half day just vis
iting and not feel that you are wasting valuable time.
I like the depression.
"I am getting acquainted with my neghbors. In
the last six months I have become acquainted with
folks who have been living next door to me for three
years. lam following the Biblical admonition: "Love
thy neighbor." One of my neighbors one of the
best-looking wives I have ever seen. She«is a dandy.
I am getting acquainted with my neighbors and learn
ing to love them.
"Three years ago, I ordered my clothes from a mer
chant tailor—two and three suits at one time. I was
always dressed up. But now I haven't bought a suit
in two yie&rs. I am mighty proud ,of my Sunday go
to-meeting clothes. When I dress up, I am dressed
up and I don't mean maybe. I like the depression.
Three years ago I was so busy and my wife so busy
that we didn't see much of each other, consequently
we sort of 'lost interest' in each other. I never went
home to lunch. About twice a week I went home for
dinner —at 6:30 o'clock. I never had time to go any
where with her. If I dd go on a party, I could never
locate her, and since there was always a 'blonde' or
'red-head' available, I didn't much worry about it.
"My wife belonged to all the clubs in town. She
even joined the young mother's club. We didn't have
any children, but she was studying—and between play
ing bridge and going to clubs she never was at home.
"I haven't been out on a party in 18 months. I
have lost my book of telephone numbers. My wife
has dropped all the clubs. I believe we are falling
"I am feeing better since the depression. I take
more exercise. I walk to town and a lot of folks who
used to drive Cadillacs are walking with me. I like
"My indigestion is better. I have not been to see
% doctor in a year. I can eat anything I want to. I
get real honest-to-goodness food. Three years ago, we
had filet mignon once a week, now we have round
steak and flour gravy. Then we had roast breast of
guinea hen; now we are glad to get sowbosom with
the buttons on it.
"} like the depression. My salary has been cut to
where I can't afford to buy lettuce and spinach and
parsley, and we can't afford to have sandwiches and
frozen desserts and all that dam foolishness which has
killed more good men than the World War.
"I like the depression. Three years ago I never had
time to go to church. I played golf all day Sunday,
and besides I was so darned smart that there wasn't
a preacher in West Texas who could tell me anything.
"Now, I am going to church regularly, never miss
"And if this depression keeps on, I will be going
to prayer meeting before long.
