T h e Business Up-Turn
We are about to have a business revival, because
people have been over-conservative and most stocks
of manufactured goods have been depleted. There
fore, everybody needs something, and hence some
trading must be done, which naturally puts a little
something doing all along the line.
Then, too, the politicians are talking a lot of big
stuff. Hoover says he has jumped prosperity and if
the folks will just elect fcim for another 4 years he
will certainly put food in the folks, clothing on them,
and money in their pockets. On the other hand, we
find the Democrats saying that the mere prospect
to say nothing about the certainty—of a Democratic
administration is helping business.
We all want improvement in business, yet it is to
be hoped that we will have enough good sound sense
to appreciate our business opportunities, build on
solid sane foundations, rather than on a flimsy, fleet
ing pleasure-bent tangent.
If we do have a spurt in business let's not fly off
and forfiet ourdeK'es, as we did once. It is not going
to last long enough to pay what we owe.
Immigrants Going Back Home
\ . ■
Providence Evening Bulletin
The vast tides of immigration have turned. And
most of the returning immigrants are more than con
tent to go back. . .
Thoroughly disillusioned, they agree that home is
best. The little paved courtyard in Genoa smelling
of garbage, goats and children never seemed so
sweet. The little (arm in Hungary, the little shop
"in Greece, never so attractive.
The mujik who set out for the land of promise to
Seek his fortune and finished up on the night shift in
a Pittsburgh foundry is going gack to his manure
warmed hut. The fiddler from Vienna, who came
over to astonish the world and ended by astonishing
only himself running an elevator in Hoboken, is go
ing back to buy a new fiddle and enjoy life.
Coolie Wage Not Desirable
Beaufort Nrwr. —*—
The funds provided by Congtess for highway con
struction have a two-fold purpose; first to furnish
jobs to people who badly, need them lind, second, to
build roads. The roads needed, of course, but the
SCHOOL DAYS By DWIG
i, , r
jobs are needed much more at this time. In its anx
iety to get as much mileage built as possible, it seems
to have been the desire of the Highway Commission
to get ts labor at low a price as possible, and it pro
]x>sed to pay unskilled labor only IS cents an hour
for 30 hours a week. Fortunately, the United States
Bureau of Public Roads insisted that the minimum
wage should not be less than 20 cents an hour.
There has been a big decline in the prices of food
stuffs, as every one knows, but still it will require
some very careful management to supply a family
with sufficient food for $6 a week, which is the sum
unskilled workers on the roads will receive. Prob
ably most of these workers will be men with families.
L The sum of $4.50 a week is of course insufficient to
provide a family with the bare necessities of life. If
possible to do it, the Highway Commission would
better pgy its men more than $6 a week instead of
less. The development of the South has been hin
i dered for generations past by a low wage scale. This
was due to slavery in the beginning, which even unto
this day exerts a bad influence-on the economic and
social structure of the South.
The Democrats do hot seem to think so very much
of the "Hoover speech, nor do the Republicans think
so very much of the Roosevelt speech.
If both men and their parties will do as much for
the people as they do in their efforts to win the elec
tion, it will insure pretty good government. Pre
elections promises, alas, are generally forgotten be
tween the home district and Washington.
All the nations involved in the Great War, like
hospital patients, are counting what the operation
cost and picking at the bandages. The Carnegie En
dowment has shown that this war cost $340,000,000,-
000 and ten million lives.
According to Mr. Andrew Mellon, the, little brawl
-cost the United States $51,000,000,000, counting in
terest Update, As recently as 1885, that sum would
have bought the whole United States and everything
Today, it would buy sixteen states like Alabama,
or three Californias, with a couple of Colorados thrown
in. It would buy the entire State of New York, with
New York City thrown in, and there would be enough
change left over to buy four states like Maryland.
If you had started throwing away dollars the day
Christ was born and kept it up at the rate of $1 a
minute, without pausing to eat or sleep, you would
only now be starting on your second billion.
At 5 |>er cent, $51,000,000,000 would provide an
annual income of $2,550,000,000, or enough to pen
sion 2,125,000 old people at SIOO a month, virtually
abolishing poverty in this country. This is what the
World War cost us in the United States to date, and
the end is not yet. In Canada the proportion is prob
ably much greater.
Was anything involved in that struggle worth that
much? Can any nation afford to go to war for any
reason except invasion? No remedy is suggested,
because there are already a hundred panaceas which
are supposed to abolish war. In fact, this war it&elf
was Supposed to be a war to end wars!
Observers warn that another world war is just a
round the corner, which, unless headed off, will make
the last one look like a piker in money cost, in loss
of life and destruction.
Every Kiwanian should let it be known to every
legislator that the time has come when no man can
be elected who does not do everything in his power
to avoid a recurrence of the World's greatest disaster.
'Jingoism, the call to |)atriotism to gain a moment's
publicity for the speaker, everything of that kind
must be suppressed, and the world given a chance to
get back on ;m even keel, if civilization is not to be
supplanted by chaos and government by anarchy.
TO CHECK LOSS
When Left Unscattered, It
Loses Plant Value and
Is Breeding Place
Manure from the barn lot or dairy
shed piled out-of-doors and left un
covered during summer is not only a
breeding place for troublesome flies
but loses considerable of its plant
food value. Now that the depression
makes it necessary to get the most
from every pound of farm fertilizer,
it might be wise to scatter this ma
nure in summer if no good place is
available for holding it over until the
E. C. Blair, extension agronomist at
State College, cites the case of an ex
periment made in another state where
barnyard manure was mixed with bed
ding and left out-of-doors in * pile
from April 1 to October 1, lost 41
percent of its nitrogen, 47 percent of
its phosphoric acid, of its
I potash and 57 percent of its total
weight. Cow manure exposed in a
similar manner lost 41 percent pf its
nitrogen, 19 percent of its phosphoric
acid, eight percent of its potash and
49 percent of its total weight.
Losses are greatly reduced by leav
ing the manure in the stables where it
is well tramped and not exposed to
the weather. The smallest losses oc
cur, however, when manure is not al
lowed to accumulate but is spread out
over the land every few days. This
also reduces the fly population of the'
Under conditions of North Carolina
agriculture it may be difficult to find
a place to spread manure in summer
but there are always a few such places
on every farm, Blair believes. In late
spring and early summer, the material
may go around the young corn; afterj
small grain, the manure may go on the j
stubble land; from August until Jan-,
uary, the manure may go on sod land i
ready for corn the following year and I
from January until April, the manure I
makes an excellent top-dresser for
small grain. The garden should be
covered at this time also and the tobac
co land will need a good application,
