WASHINGTON . . one industry
I was in Washington for a few
days recently, and what impressel
me most was the utter ignorance of
the people of Washington about what
is going on the rest of the world.
Building industry is booming, con
structing new Government buildings.
Government employees are working
every day. yelping mildly about a
small reduction in salaries. Streets
are crowded with cars, driven with
the utmost recklessness and most in
efficient traffic regulations. Stores
are doing as good business as ever,
at prices much higher than in New
York. Rents are almost up to the
Washington has but one industry,
the Government of the United States.
It is so detached from the rest of the
country that it might as well be in
some other nation. It is difficult for
the men who run the government to
realize how bad conditions are else
where, when they see evidence all
around them of great prosperity.
I have long believed that it was a
serious mistake to locate the seat of
government away from the center of
business and industrial activity. If
I could do it. I would move the Capi
tol and the White House to Chicago
which is where they ought to be if
they are really to represent the
American people effectively.
IjA N I) .... safest investment
In spite of the fact that many
owners of real estate have suffered
great losses in the past few years,
land remains the safest, soundest in
vestment in the long run. The sup
ply is limited, for one thing. In
creasing population means increas
ing demand for land. Every baby
born on Manhattan Island increases
the value of the Woolworth building.
The time to buy land is now. Dol
lars'are high now; they will be
much cheaper shortly. Land is cheap
now; it will be much higher before
long. The time' to buy anything is
when everybody else wants to sell.
If you own land, hold on to it; if
you have dollars, buy land with them
Don't speculate in land! Pay for
it and hold it. Don't speculate in
anything oh which you canlt always
reali.. something at a moment's no
tice. You can't move land around;
you must wait until someone wants
that piece at that spot. So buy
land intelligently, in the path of
the movement of population. Re
gard it as an investment for your
children rather than as a way to
make yourself rich over night.
The world’s greatest and most en
during fortunes have been made by
buying land and holding on to it.
