Lawyers in Majortiy.
A RECENT count showed that
out of 435 members of the
United States House of Represen
tatives, 328 set themselves down
in the Congressional Directory as
lawyers. It was pointed out at
the time the count was made that
a considerable number of Repre
sentatives do not furnish any de
tailed autobiography and there are
probably several more lawyers on
Out of the 435 members, barely
100 are not members of the bar.
All the other trades, businesses
and professions manufacturing,
selling, teaching, farming, bank
ing, preaching, medicine are re
presented by fewer than one-quarter
of the membership of the
House of Representatives.
What is the reason? Has the
law a stranglehold on the political
machinery of the country or is it
simply that more lawyers are run
ning for office?
It would be interesting, too, to
know just how much of the hot air
wasted while Congress is in ses
sion is furnished by the lawyer
members. By training the lawyer
is always ready for debate, and
while they make up about 77 per
cent of the membership, lawyers
probably do about 95 per cent of
THE MORAL ASPECT OF THE
USUALLY the money-making individual gets a very black eye
from most high-brow writers. They think if a man does a
thing in order to get money he should be somewhat ashamed
I wish to say a good word for the desire to make money. It
seems to me it is about the most wholesome desire in the human
What would we do unless people could make money? The
gas we burn in the house would remain in the coal if there
were no profits in taking it out and piping it to the residence.
You could not have electricity unless it paid somebody to
bring it to your house. v
You would have to do without most of the food you eat
and the clothes you wear if nobody could make a profit by sup
plying you with them.
We should be very glad to give these middlemen something
for their brains. Without their services life would be barren
Giving people wages or pay is the way we induce people to
do something for us which we cannot do. or do not want to do
Formerly we had a system of slavery by which men did what
we didn't want to do.
The conscience of the world rebelled against that, and now
to get a man to do for us what we do not want to do ourselves,
or cannot do, we simply pay him. Without this system of pay
ing people for their labor there would be none of it done for us.
The wage system beautifies our lives, fills it with comforts
and luxuries and the whole fabric of society rests upon it.
Every man or woman should not only be busy but should be
busy about something that the world is willing to pay for.
When somebody pays for what you do, you may be sure your
work is needed. If you are just working for nothing, you may
be more of a nuisance than a benefit.
The wage system is a test by which you know that your work
No man should be ashamed of getting wages. Everybody
of any account works for a wage in one form or another.
Of course he should do nothing dishonorable or disgraceful,
but he should not do that, anyhow. So, eliminating all wicked
or criminal or selfish acts, the best way to test the usefulness of
your activities is to see whether anybody wants to pay for them

SCIENTISTS from all over the
world gathered in this coun
try recently to discuss problems
of applying science to human liv
ing to promote longer life, increas
ed efficiency and well-being, and
race improvement. These are the
greatest material problems the
world must face.
But science has already length
ened human life, statistics gath
ered by life insurance companies
show. The average man is able
to live in what would have been
called luxury a few hundred years
ago through the work of scient
ists. Many people believe the
race has improved and that the
average man is more efficient now
than he ever was. So science may
eventually be able to solve these
Nevertheless, science can do
little to solve the problems that
trouble man the most. His spir
itual problems far outweigh the
material for the thinking man ex
cept perhaps when his very exist
tnce is threatened. Science can
help make men physically com
fortable but it can't help him with
his biggest problems.
A prominent local farmer who

grain in bulk is becoming more

Pensions, 8 Billions.
TiHE Bureau of Pensions has
just published some interesting
facts about its work. Since its
establishment in 1789, the Bureau
of Pensions has distributed about
$8,000,000,000 in cash and 69,
000,000 acres of the public do
main. On June 30, 1927, there were
489,942 pensioners on the rolls,
including 17 widows of men who
served in the War of 1812.
The figures showing the am
ount of money distributed seem
quite impressive, but the Govern
ment owes a very real debt to the
men who served in the military
and naval forces when the country
needed them most. Now that
these men have grown old or have
become incapacitated in any way,
it would certainly be an ungrate
ful government that would fail to
pay this -debt
