No Subsidy Needed
In a narrative of his business career now running serial
ly in "The Nation's Business," Captain Robert Dollar, one
of the most successful of American ship-owners and posses
sor of fleets sailing the seven seas, opposes President Hard
ing's pet scheme of a ship subsidy as superfluous, declaring:
I have been operating ships for a good many years, and I feel that
I ought to know something about the subject. I have always felt that
a shipowner wHo must bare ''pap" from the government doea not
deserve to be in the business. We do not need any advantage over
the other fellow; we can take care of ourselves.
It is a relief in these days of greed and grab, of bonus
begging and subsidy clamoring, of interests seeking special
privilege at public expense, of grafters, pap-hunters and
profiteers, to hear from one imbued with old-fashioned
ideas of commercial honesty and business enterprise, who
asks nothing in the line of special favor, but relies upon his
own initiative, energy and wit to enforce a square deal and
crown his efforts with success.
It was such ideas and such ideals that developed Ameri
ca and created its greatness. From the early pioneers
down, worthwhile Americans have asked no odds of any
one and held their own in competition with the world. The
idea that Uncle Sam exists to dole out special favors to the
individual to make-up for incapacity, or to enrich the few
at the cost of many, is the inspirition of tariffs, subsidies
and bonuses, and responsible for that paternalism which is
destroying initiative and crippling e nterprise, and making
us a nation of clamorous business beggars always crying for
more. . ''
Not only the ship-owner, but the man in any business
who cannot stand on his own bottom, and must have pap
from the government, is not worthwhile and the business
that is similarly dependent, is also not worthwhile. But
the primary idea of pap nowadays Is to get something for
nothing and to inflate profits for monopoly, and the clamor
for its necessity to preserve industry is mostly camouflage
to deceive the people whose pockets are picked.
It is about time that the nation went back to first prin
cipls cut out privilege seeking and pap-sucking and left
the individual to shift for himself, with no advantage over
competitors save those that nature bestowed. It is time to
wipe out paternalism and return to democracy, lest paternal
ism wipe-out democracy.

NEAR ALBANY BEGUN
Albany, June 28. Hauling of
'hot stuff" on the Pacific high
way on the Albany-Tangent sector
began Tuesday morning.
Five large trucks belonging to
the A. D. Kern Paving company,
began hauling "the black" from
the Tangent plant at 8:80 o'clock
this morning, and shortly after
o'clock the first pavement was
laid at the southern city limits of
Albany at Thirteenth and Elm
The forms were laid several days
ago and It is expected that from
now on work will proceed rapidly.
The rock for the paving came from
