The government lends money to far

Three months later the government pays
farmers to plow up the cotton they have

but we confess we are too dumb to under
stand it.
An old proverb reads: “Man is like
a tack, useful, if he has a good head on
him, and is pointed in the right direction,
but even though he is driven, he can only
go as far as his head will let him.” We
concur with the majority of men as
examples, but some we know only re
semble the tack because they’re both flat
on top.
Florida cities can’t believe that reform
in Cuba will go so far as to abolish the na

Uorida cities every week by the big Sun

pbfits are said to be enormous, there is no
corresponding return iu prizes to players

~-Mia*ii News.
MORE BABIES ADOPTED
It speaks well for the humane spirit
of our people that the number of orphans
and children of incompetent parents who
have been adopted into comfortable homes
has greatly increased during the depres
sion.
In 1927 the number of such adoptions
was about 100,000, while last year over
120,000 found homes with desirable foster
Parents. During the same period the
number ; homeless children who had to
be cared for by institutions remained prac
tically at a standstill, the yearly average
being about 160,000.
These facts are presented by the Chil
dren’s Bureau of the Department of Labor
in Washing' n, which points out that this
difference between institutional and home
care shows a significant trend in the hous
ing of these unfortunate little ones.
Commenting on this humane trend,,
the Houston Post says: “Such children
have brought joy to thousands of childless
homes. The doors of every childless home
in America should be thrown open to one
or more of these unfortunate tots. It will
mean happiness to the foster parents and
a real chance for the youngsters upon
whom fate has not smiled.”
If our Christian faith be well founded,
the adoption of a homeless child must be
pleasing to Him who said: “Suffer little
children to come unto Me.”
BIG SHOW SETS STYLES
v, } . comes that Chicago’s Century
of Progress Exposition is setting the coun
try’s standards for women’s summer fash
ions. The big cafes and the outdoor din
ing terraces at the Exposition naturally
bring out the newest styles. Visitors from
every state in the Union observe, go home
and begin wearing the same fashions,
thus popular ideas quickly sweep the coun
try.
The most interesting point in the
whole situation is the fact that inexpensive
materials are the most popular. Gingham,
orgrndy, seersucker, are seen everywhere
at the Fair, by day and by night. And
of course, it is easy to adopt such styles in
the rest of the country, for the day clotjies,
i’e •ocks, jackets and coats all can be
tosses into the family washing machine,
whisked clean in a jiffy and be ready to
wear again in an hour or so.
This, in turn, reminds one of how
quickly household equipment hfea gone
from the class of luxuries to the field of ne
cessities. Fifteen years ago the woman
who owned a household washing machine
considered herself exceptionally fortunate,
now it is possible for the most modest home
have such equipment.
With washable clothes never so pop
ular as they are this summer, it is interest
ing to realize how mechanical genius has
made it easy for such styles to be adopted
and followed by anyone.
PRESS AIDS HEALTH
Newspapers of the, country are per
forming a splendid public service through
the publication of health information, ac
cording to Dr. Bloodgood, eminent scien
tist and cancer specialist of John Hopkins-
University.
He declares that because of the spread
of sound advice 70 percent of persons
threatened with cancer now 9eek medical
aid as soon as symptoms appear. Before
the newspapers began to aid in deseminat
ing medical information, less than three
percent sought medical aid in time.
The old notion that a doctor should
not give information to the press, because
of an ancient and foolish code of ethics,
was criticized by Dr. Bloodgood, who be
lieves that the public should be told in
plain language whatever the doctor has to
tell. Referring to the importance of giv
ing attention to the teeth, he said:
"Let the press continue its work. Let
it advise every man and woman over 40 to
have their teeth X-rayed twice a year. Bad
teeth are the most common causes of break
down ".
Turough preventive measures the span
of human life has been greatly lengthened
in recent years, and it should be gratify
ing to newspapermen to have had an im
portant part in bringing about this highly
important result.
It’s funny, with all the poor poetry
that’s going around, that no one ever
thought of killing two bards with one
stone.—Boston Evening Transcript.

The Filee Of The Citisen
That Mayor Frank H. Ladd is
enthusiastic over the road to the
mainland is evidenced by an inter
view published in Havana by the
leading newspaper in that city rel
ative to the road that was given
out by Mayor Ladd who is in Ha
vana with the boy scouts. The
interview was given out by the
Associated Press, and published in
the United States.
Work on the municipal golf l
course is progressing rapidly and
it is now believed that the links
will be cleared for play before
the close of the next winter sea
son. The dragline excavator,
which cost the city more than
SIO,OOO is proving its worth, the
dragline buckets carrying ?thre
quarters of a cubic yard of earth
and stone with such apparent ease
that many citizens have visited the
course to see the machine work.

That business with Cuba is on
the increase is evidenced by the
fact that the two large seagoing
ferries of the F. E. C. Car ferry
company which left here last night
for Havana carried more than one
thousand tons of freight. These
large ocean going ferries are now
making daily trips between this
port and Cuba.

PEOPLE’S FORUM
CITES POSSIBLE BENEFITS
FROM GOVERNMENT LOANS
Editor, The Citizen:
Relaxation of credit through ad
vances of government loans to ■
such of the nation's 1,750,000 re
tailers as may need help offcfrs an
immediate and positive way out of
the depression.
If the government were to ad
vance to those retail dealers of the
nation who require it, a fraction of
the money advanced by the Recon
struction Finance Corporation to
large industries, railroads, banks,
insurance companies, etc., in the
last two years, th<* benefits to busi
ness would be felt at once. Unless
the retailer makes a profit and is
able to stay in business, business
cannot improve.
The large pefeentage of retail
ers who have been forced to do
their buying on a cash basis is al
most unbelievable, and business
carried on a cash basis is business <
reduced to a minimum. Compara- j
ti vely small sums advanced to a '
large number of retailers would
enable them to wipe out their i
debts and reestab’ish their lines of
credit with their wholesalers and|
manufacturers. Once again the re-1
tailers would be able to stock thej
merchandise his customers want;'
he could rehire or put his clerks
back on full time* Wholesalers'
and manufacturers, in turn, would
employ more people in their plants,
•in their offl'ces and on the road,
and more promptly meet their ob
ligations to their raw materials
processors, so that the dffects of
the movement would be quickly
felt by the entire business cyc!e. I
firmly believe that this plan, put
into force immediately, would re
store millions to employment this
fall.
Many merchants of excellent
character now find themselves in a
financial state bordering on in
solvency and it is the duty of the
government, as well as manufac
turers and wholesalers to cooperate
with a view of maintaining them
in business and not adding to the
large number of unemployed. The
government is in a tactical position
to set the wheels of the retailer,
> who, after all is said, is the key
stone of our entire bu* ness struc
: tuVe.
