amount of misapprehension -? en

SOMETIMES we see executives of industries or heads of
government offices boasting; that they are effecting
great economies without reducing .wages. Everybody ap
plauds, and commends the manager for his efficiency in sav
ing 'money and his big-heartedness in looking after the wel
fare of his employes, seeing that they do not suffer.
' "Other" economies must mean usually something like
this: lower priees for raw materials, using smaller quantities
of supplies, making fewer purchases. These are '"impersonal'
things and whatever cost may be squeezed out of them is a
worthy accomplishment; .there is no wringing of prof it out
' of human beings as there is when wages are cut.
But' if we pause a moment and reflect this reasoning is
absurd. Raw material or supplies for. one industry or bus
iness are the finished product of some other factory or farm
or mine. And their principal cost is usually labor cost. When
a textile; mill gets its ravwool cheaper it means that the
wool-grower has taken less for his product, and he may suf
fer the loss as acutely as the textile-worker who might have
his wages cut. . y ! J v. 1 ;. I ;v
We have a good illustration" of this principle right at
home. Presumably every industry and public of f ice 'which" are
very large users of printed forpps are: economizing as much
as.they can in purchases of sbrioneryj possibly making this
one of the "other economies? wmch may permit them to get
through! without cutting the wages of their own employes.
But what happens when these supplies are not purchased?
Well, the printing plants lose that much business and fewer
printer get employment. Less paper is required so the mills
are up against overproduction price-cutting follows; and
the final result is cutting wages in the paper mill. That is
what has happened With the local paper mill, which has had
to reduce wages materially because the demand in the paper
market was not absorbing the supply being manufactured.
There is another bit of smug complacency on the part
of executive managers who maysay ttey have laid off no em
ployes although they 'may have refused to fill vacancies which
always occur in any staff of size. This simply means that
the door i3 shut in the face of youth who are graduating from
schools into business each year. That touches the human ele
ment just as definitely though perhaps not so keenly as an
out-and-out discharge. j
, We mention these things in the interest of clear think
ing. It is a fallacy to think that effecting: "other" economies
without! lowering wages does not affect the human side of
business and to think that refusing to fill vacancies has no
effect upon unemployment. The human element is closely in
terwoven in all phases of business. All products are just part
materials and the other part human effort and ! sweat and
sacrifice. "Other" economies than wage cuts may have little
effect In the immediate proximity of the plant which makes
them; but they may touch vitally a man working in a south
ern cotton field, or in a Montana copper mine, or in a Salem
paper mill. .

Must be Something Wrong
fc7"ESTERDAY was a perfect day at the fairgrounds and
X one of the largest crowds on record attended the fair.
In the afternoon the picture was as beautiful as could be
seen anywhere. Jfrom the grandstand the ridge of the Cas
cades stood out clear on the eastern horizon with the broad
bulk of Mount Hood and the snowy tip of Mount Jefferson
U . M a a aa.
in gooa view, in iront werje tne aiternoon events, the har
ness races, running races, i acrobatic: stunts. , The packed
grandstand enjoyed a splendid performance on an ideal fall
day. ! ;, ;.i . ;'!:.';.
We could not but reflect in looking over the crowd that
.there must be.something.wrong. We recall district, fairs of
inircy years ago wnere rowayism was rampant, where the
fair was an excuse for staging a big drunk. Men who might
stay on the water wagon for months would "celebrate" dur
ing the fair. Several big fights were to be expected each day.
But Wednesday at the state fair we didn't observe a single
case of drunkenness, nor any sign that individuals had been
imbibing. We saw no fights, heard no boisterous talk, saw
none who might be rated a bit tipsy. True we didn't smell the
breath mf all the jockeys ; but we did mill around considerably
in the crowd. . - , . . . I
Judging by what we read in the newspapers this coun
try is consuming large quantities of liquor, drunkenness is a
conimon occurrence, . children are reeling from intoxication
But when you get in a big crowd like;that at the state fair
you simply do not see it. There is a certain amount of drink
ing we may be sure ; but the rowdyisnv the fighting, the vom
iting drunks; seldom are they in evidence. There was one bad
fight one afternoon, but that was because one big Indian
couldn't get liquor; not because he could. ! I
Look at the crowds as you see them at the fair r-w
