Who Will Solve Problem?
By
LEONARD A. BARRETT
© Western Newspaper Union.
Whatever we may think of the
present theories ter solving the un-
employment
problems, one
fact challenges
our most serious
consideration. As
business im­
proved we ex­
pected a de­
crease In the
amount needed
for relief, where­
as the opposite
has been true.
More money Is
needed today to
care for the un­
employed than
three years ago. Either the num­
ber of the unemployed or the
amount paid per Individual has in­
creased. How many persons are
now on relief who could be gain­
fully employed? How many have
been offered work and refused it?
These questions merit most discreet
investigation. In view of the ulti­
mate solution of this social problem
the Inevitable question arises, is
the present method of granting re­
lief adequate? Will it solve the
problem? It not, are other solu­
tions possible?
Among the many solutions offered
for consideration, three are receiv­
ing serious thought.
The most
unique plan Is known as the Town­
send method by which all persons
over sixty years of age, regardless
of race or social standing, be given
$200 per month upon the agreement,
that the person receiving the money
will not work for wages and that
he will spend the entire amount
within the month it is granted. The
enormous expense of such a plan
Is to be raised by taxation. The
argument is that it would take 10,-
000,000 out of the ranks of the un­
employed.
Another plan, championed by Mr.
Huey Long, suggests there be no
Increase In taxes but the entire
wealth of the country be divided,
so that every person will have a
spending allowance of $2,500 per
year. Just how this is to be di­
vided and the method by which
more wealth will be created when
it all runs out, does not seem to
have received earnest consideration.
Another plan is that of unem­
ployment insurance, the burden of
the cost of carrying the Insurance
to be carried largely by Industry it­
self.
Many other plans have been sug-
gested, but in addition to the pres­
ent ‘‘dole" system, these three
seem to be the most Important.
What is the perfect plan? Who will
think the problem through? Who
will present a practical and pos­
sible solution? It Is a problem which
must be settled upon the basis of
facts and not theories. It Is a
mighty big challenge! Who has the
solution and what Is it?

Stone, Bronze, Iron Used
by Japanese for Lanterns
The lantern still Is used lavishly
for decorative purposes on gala
occasions and in religious rites
and ceremonies, in Japan, writes
Mason Warner In the Chicago Trib­
une. Lantern making Is an art In
Japan, and the huge standing lan­
terns of stone, bronze, and Iron are
utilized for the adornment of pri­
vate gardens and temple grounds In
the same manner that the Greeks of
old used marble statues. Lanterns
are built and cherished as memo­
rials to the dead as well as to light
the way of the spirit of the de­
parted.
There are 2,000 stone and 1,000
bronze and Iron lanterns in the com­

Uncommon Sense

Your
press.
First Page
Realizing the
importance of dis­
playing wares properly to the pub­
lic, the most vital and Interesting
news of the day Is printed, at least
in part, on the first page.
The reader, looking at the news­
paper on a street corner stand buys
It largely because of some impor­
tant news story.
That is the newspaper’s introduc­
tion to the public, day after day.
Once a good impression is made,
the public which is impressed looks
to the same paper tor important
news the next day, tnd finally be­
comes a “constant reader.”
In the same way department

groceries and foodstuffs, “dress'* *
their counters, so that the best sell­

the eye of the customers.
