I think we are going to come out
of our economic troubles with a
j much more general understanding of
j the unimportance of money, than
| most of us had before.
Millions of people have learned
how to get along with substitutes
for money. A lot of them have
learned that money is not wealth,
but is. merely a symbol of wealth.
Real wealth is commodities that can
be used, and nothing else.
1 The best definition of money I
1 have ever seen was written by a
! German economist, Paul Helfferich.
“Money is a medium for storing
commodity values and conveying
them through time and space.”
SCRIP.just as good
Any money is good money which
everybody is willing to accept as
such. Practically the whole nation
has gone on a scrip basis, and until
we try to spend some of it outside
of the United States it is just as good
The only thing that makes gold
the best money is that it is the one
substance which everybody in the
world accepts at the same value. But
when everybody in Hopfrog Corners
accepts the local scrip at its face
value, the scrip is just as good
money as gold money.
Neither scrip nor gold is wealth:
both are merely yardsticks with
which to measure wealth.
PRESIDENTS.31 or 32?
Franklin D. Roosevelt is either the
thirty-first or the thirty-second
President of the United States, ac
cording to which way you count. I
notice that Publishers Autocaster
Service referred to him last week as
the thirty-first President.
It is perfectly true that he is the
thirty-first person to hold that of
fice, but one of his predecessors, Mr.
Cleveland, was elected two different
times, with a four-year interval be
tween his two terms.
So if you count the number of
Presidential administrations M r .
Roosevelt is the thirty-second. Not
that it makes much difference.
CHINA .... being united
I dined the other day in New
York with a gentleman who has been
engaged in business in China for
several years. He gave me a new
picture of the condition of the
China today is actually prosper
ous. Its industries are booming
and, except in some of the remote
districts, there is something like real
prosperity, judged by Chinese stand
The most interesting thing my
friend said, however, was that the
Chinese people are more nearly uni
fied today as a nation than they
have ever been. The Japanese ag
gression in Manchuria has stimu
lated Chinese patriotism. My friend
expressed the opinion that China
would make a very effective re
sistance to Japan; that it might take
years, but eventually China, includ
ing Manchuria, will be controlled by
PERKINS .... in New York
Frances Perkins, the first woman
member of the Cabinet, is in private
life Mrs. Paul Wilson. Her hus
band is a statistician. They have a
daughter, Suzanna, who is now
about sixteen years old.
So sharp a line does Miss Perkins
draw between her public life and
her private life that it was not until
her name was announced as Secre
tary of Labor that most of the news
paper men in Albany, where she was
head of the New York Labor Bu
reau, even knew she was married.
Since the laws of New York do
not require a married woman to take
her husband’s name unless she feels
like it; she is still legally Frances
Perkins, although in the district of
Columbia she may have to sign the
Federal payroll as Mrs. Paul Wilson.
I am. very fond of Mr. Hoover. So
is everybody who really gets ac
quainted with him. In his private
and personal capacity as a man he is
genial, humorous, considerate and
not in the slightest degree “high
I don’t know what Mr. Hoover will
do next, but I am satisfied that it
will be something in the nature of
public service. He has no money
ambitions. He made a great deal of
money as a mining engineer. He
spent some millions of his personal
fortune in his Belgium relief work
and at that time, 1914, deliberately
put an end to his business career
and told his friends that he intended
to devote the rest of his life to serv
ing his country, whch he did as
Food Administrator, Secretary of
Commerce and President.
Mr. Hoover deals with facts on a
large scale with greater ability than
any man I have ever known. I think
he is permanently out of politics,
i but I believe he will be a great fig
ure in public affairs in some other
way as long as he lives.

Entertain Bridge Club
On Wednesday evening from eight
until eleven o’clock the Sparta

and Mrs. C. A. Thompson at the
home of the latter. The club, which
is composed of ladies of the town, in
vited gentlemen for the occasion.
The room was decorated with
Eastern and spring flowers in a very
pretty and attractive manner. Sug
gestions of the Easter time were
evident in -the decorations and the
tally cards, which bore a sketch of
an Easter Bunny in his basket.
Contract was played at four ta
bles. High score was awarded Mrs.
James E. Doughton and Miss Susie
Thomas. While playing at the first
table this couple made the unusual
score of three thousand points in the
playing of one hand. The prizes
were distinctly beautiful sets of
playing cards which were highly de
served by the winners.
At the end of the playing, a deli
cious salad course was served. The
occasion was one of the many de
lightful and finely-appointed social
affairs of the season.
