MORROW COUNTY'S OFFICIAL PAPER

THE AMERICAN PRESS ASSOCIATION
THE National Association of
Manufacturers has protested
against Uncle Sam's entrance in
to the field of manufacture or
power development as unfair to
private industry, which is com
pelled to pay taxes and insurance
and the like.
For some time now the Govern
ment has been competing with the
printers of the country through its
practice of printing special re
quest return addresses on stamped
envelopes. And these printers
must pay taxes, insurance, rent
and all the other expenses to
which any form of private indus
try is subjected.
This practice of printing envel
opes is dinky business and 'bad
business for Uncle Sam. The Na
tional Ediotrial, association and
other organizations are waging
war upon it. Bills will be intro
duced in both branches of Con
aress to abolish the practice.
Congressmen who will be call
ed to vote on the bills are urged
to ponder President Coolidge's
statement that the Government
should get out of all kinds of bus
iness and stay out. This includes
of course, the printing business.
If the bills fail, a new four-
year contract between the Gov
ernment and the envelope manu
facturers will probbaly be entered
into,, and the practice will be con
tinued. Winning the fight means
giving industrial America a prec
edent for attacks on similar evils
in other industries.
Winning means an understand
ing, too, that paternalism will be

Research," predicting prosperity

James Speyer, an able banker,
whose father, grandfather and
great-grandfather were in finance
before him, says: "Why ask
"how long will prosperity last?'
This country's normal condition is
prosperity. If we act like sensi

Jk Frank Crane Says
Don't Be One Sided on Prohibition
UNDERNEATH all this wordy warfare between the wets and
the drys and between the noble and free-born souls that en
joy the privilege of getting drunk whenever they please, and the
fanatics who want to interfere with other people's liberty, lies
the question, what, after all, is the net condition of the common
For we are not so much interested in crime among the rich
and fashionable, nor with the case of the down-and-outers as we
are concerned with the condition of the ordinary, average man.
Perhaps it is true, as asserted by the wets, that more liquor is
drunk under prohibition than ever before, more gilded youths
are carrying gin in their hip pockets, and a more murderous
brand of booze is being consumed.
But the fact remains that the average man who has to work
for his living and gets a modest stipend therefor, does not drink
liquor simply because he cannot afford it. Much more liquor
may be drunk now, but the working man does not care to pay
fifty cents or one dollar for a drink.
A recent survey made by Prof. Herman Feldman, of Dart
mouth College, published in the Christian Science Monitor, es
tablishes the fact that since the advent of prohibition there has
been an amazing increase in the productivity of the wage earn
er, embracing almost every industry in the country. For in
stance, the output of the rubber tire worker was 139 percent
greater in 1925 than in 1919, and this is a typical instance, not
the exceptional one. '
Labor bodies opposed the passage of the prohibition amend
ment, but the United States Bureau of Labor Statistics calls
attention to the almost unbelievable increase in the productivity
of the worker during the past few years.
As a matter of fact, the much-cursed prohibition admend
ment has placed the United States industrially in the fore front
of the world. It may have been an unwarrantable interference
with our personal liberty, bu tthe effect of it has been to in
crease our personal efficiency, and the effort of most men is in
the direction of increasing their efficiency by learning how to
restrict their liberties.
Some people may -think that being the most industrially ef
fective nation in the world does not mean much, but most of us
think that it does and are willing to pay the price.
mission favors a continuation of
an "easy money" policy by the
Federal Reserve Bank. A sane
recommendation. In the world's
richest country only usurious
money lenders would desire any
thing but easy money, which to
prosperity, industry and new en
terprise, is like water and fer
tilizer to the soil.
MR. HALDEMAN-JULIUS, a
Kansas publisher of books,
approves his young daughter's ex
periment in 'companionate mar
riage." The girl, eighteen, will
marry a twenty-year-old boy, the
two "will continue living their
lives after marriage as they lived
previously, until they determine
whether they are entirely suited
to each other." Until then they
won't live together, at least not in
the same house.
Exactly what the pla nis seems
uncertain. Until they live to
gether, they cannot possibly know
whether they are suited to each
othre or not. Companionate mar
riage is as old as the human race
and as old as the monkey race.
All the monkeys live in compan
ionate marriage, free to quit at
any time, and they like it.

of centuries to establish marriage

An epidemic of thirty-seven cases

that eternal vigilance is necessary
to prevent the outbreak of epidemics.
Before the days of modern water
purification, typhoid fever was held
to be chiefly a water-borne disease.
During the past few years, howevor,
we find thut typhoid is more often
milk-borne in origin. Few diseases
present the striking contrast of the
past with the present as does typhoid
fever. Not many years ago this dis
ease was a plague which was present
in the population all the time and
each fall it was expected in epidemic
proportions. It is now within the
power of any community to bring
down and keep down the typhoid fever
rate to, or nearly to the vanishing
Since water supplies have been
largely improved, milk has become
probably the most common vehicle in
the transmission of this disease. It
has numerous opportunities for con-
tamination. The hands of the milker
may not be clean and the utensils
may have been washed in unclean
water. If the typhoid germs get into
the milk while it is warm, it finds an
excellent culture medium and as a re
suit increases, so that a slight con
tamination becomes massive.
The utmost care must be taken in
handling milk. Mill; epidemics pre

The first thing to be done in con
trolling an epidemic is to determine
the infection source. Dairies should
be inspected, food handlers examined
and the milk ordered pasteurized if
there is any suspicion of the milk.
Each and every case of typhoid fe
ver comes somewhere from some pre
vious case. Typhoid fever never rises
No person should handle foods who
has recently had typhoid or who is a
typhoid carrier. Washing the hands
before handling food and before eat
ing is not a fad. It is the best of
common sense and prudence. Nobody
should eat without washing the hands.
Boil your drinking water and your
milk unless you are sure that the
supply is pure.
