Aid can be given by first setting
a good example yourself .and letting
others know that nothing short of
death or serious illness will keep you
from going to the polls in November.
Then others can be urged to vote and
the importance of getting out a large
and representative vote can be stress
ed at every opportunity.
There are almost no good reasons
for failing to vote. It is one of the
most important and vital duties of
citizenship. Go early to the polls and
express your preference and then with
a clear conscience you can spend the
rest of election day as you see fit.
And don't be influenced by the pests
who tell you your vote is "lost" un
less you cast your ballot for a win
net. Elections are not merely a
means of selecting public officials
they are also a means of revealing
public sentiment, of giving everj^ citi
zen a "say" on how he thinks govern
ments should be run. If you vote as
you believe, your vote is not "lost"
though you may be alone among mil
lions. The only vote that is really
"lost" and "thrown away" is the vote
that is not cast at all.

"Ministers of the Gospel must not

doctrine of charity they must also

"If we are permanently to improve
the condition of the poor and to pre

from passing into the ranks of the
poor, we must strive for better wage
standards and the protection of wage
earners against industrial hazards.
"Charity must go hand in hand
with the application of the principle
of justice in social and industrial re
lations. Those who are interested in
practical works of charity must ever
strive for the improvement of social
and industrial conditions."

The public is urged to "investigate
before investing," but this advice is
not intended for workers who are en
couraged to buy stock in the concern
in which they are employed.
Returns on stock ownership are un
certain. Stock differs from bonds in
that the latter is a mortgage on the
property. A bond holder can throw
the property into bankruptcy if divi
dends are not paid.
Stockholders are paid interest only
after other financial requirements are
fulfilled. Interest on bonds, replace
ment funds, depreciation and sinking
funds are given first attention. The
stockholders are thcfn considered.
Even if there is sufficient money to
pay interest on stock, the board of di
rectors can vote to pass dividends^nd
leave the money in the treasury for fu
ture requirements. Unless the stock is
cumulative, which is rare, that espe
cial interest is lost to the stockholder
The corporation "insiders" always
have the advantage. They diversify
their holdings. They never "put all
their eggs in one basket," as the work
ers are called upon to do.
The "insiders" may also secretly
control a subsidiary corporation that
is* a money maker, while the parent
corporation, whose stock is owned by
trustful workers, is losing money.
Workers should remember that there
are two reasons why management fa

power to iqprease their wealth and

MR. MELLON AS A DIPLOMAT
Mr. Kellogg may be Secretary of
State, but Mr. Andrew Mellon is at
times a good cook when it comes to
stirring up international troubles.
In Colombia there is a concession—
oil, of course—known as the Barco
concession. One of the Mellon com
panies is heavily interested in it. The
Colombian government has cancelled
this concession. Mr. Kellogg has pro
tested, but the Colombian government
virtually says he can protest until he
gets tired of it. A nice Imbroglio
seems in the making.
Somehow there seems to be com
plete lack of evidence that the Ameri
can people want any more Latin
American troubles over oil," but that
probably will make no difference to
Mr. Mellon and Mr. Kellogg.
