j Government ownership crops up in
j every industrial problem.
Another immense problem con
i fronting the Government and the
'country, affects the manufacturing
plants and other establishments
created for war purposes, the
! machinery for which may or may
not be available for after war pro
duction. It is likewise considered a
subject for the immediate -present
to decide what we are going to do
with the millions of war workers
now so busily employed who will
find themselves out of employment
when peace has been declared. It
appears imperative that the Govern
ment must take some action to pro
tect its war workers. The Govern
ment has an endiess number of
buildings now being used for ex
clusive war purposes, and it must
be determined what is going to be
done with these buildings. What
also is to be done with the houses
the Government has provided for its
war workers? Surely all this vast
equipment must not detericate or
go in the scrap heap At the same
time the Government cannot always
"do it all." Private initiative must
return to bear its burdens, for it is
very clear that co-operate industry
will not solve the problem and a
wise modern philosopher gives this
reason: "Because inevitably the
few must always lead and the
many must follow, which renders
just co-operation impossible of
realization until human nature it
self is changed "
Here is something different in
advertisements: "Billy Maupin,
who is now at Cottons lumber yard,
is lonely and wants his friends to
call and chat with him Of course,
he will sell you a bill of lumber if
you want it, but he wants you to
come and see him whether you
want lumber or not." This is taken
from The Shelbina Democrat, but
Shelbina is not the only town where
building material men are getting
lonesome. After the war, however,
lonesome Billy Maupin will have
less time to talk. ' '
