The Cherry 91 Where with our Little Hatchet we A THE BUTLER COUNTY PRESS SYSTEM DOES NOT RE QUIRK ACCOUNTS. DEPOSITS or IDENTIFICATION tell th# truth about many things, sometimes pro foundly. Sometimes flippantly, sometimes recklessly More about dictators. The total of human happiness is the sum of our ability to preserve our own individuality while making wise concessions necessary in rela tions with others. The substitution of mutuality for unrestricted freedom. The primeval savage had no re strictions whatever on his freedom. But he did not have much of any thing else. The first time two families tried the experiment of living together in the same cave, concessions and ar rangements and reservations became necessary. And this continued as the communities grew from groups to tribes and tribes to nations. In our democracy, the evolution has been startlingly rapid. The pioneer shot his meat and planted his crops without restraint. When restraint irked, he just packed up and went elsewhere. On a road that he made himself. Daniel Boone moved from his beloved Kentucky to Missouri be cause the congestion of population had arisen to the smothering figure of five to the square mile. Now, for our own comfort and pro tection, we cannot cross a street ex cept under rules established by those to whom we have delegated the man agement of the necessary part of our liberties. And right there, in the wisdom with which we delegate control and to whom, is the problem of the best government. Democracy is the best government. For the simple fact is that the human race has tried every other form, from absolute despotism to anarchy, and found them all wanting in the final test. This test is how the people fare under them. Democracies are slow. They are just as wise or stupid as are the mass minds of their citizens. But, in the long run, they do give to the people what they want. And not what some one else decides they want or should want. And if we blunder, we can "cuss out" each other and do better next time. If the executives we hire as man agers blunder, we can change them for someone else. Maybe better. Maybe worse. But the one we col lectively decide upon.

In other countries, the added cost of tin cans— Puts the product out of reach of most of the people— Next time you enter a grocery store Stop and look, and measure the proportions— Animal and vegetable products canned had value of about one bil lion— To which liquors bottled and canned added almost another billion— It is the Era of the Tin Can.

J. (ILNS).—Un employment is as much the problem of business as of the government, Senator Joseph C. O'Mahoney of Wyoming, chairman of the temporary national economic committee, told the National Petroleum Association in convention here. He said that although American industry had done "remarkably well" in approaching the unemployment problem, it still "had not done enough." If business and industry do not join in solving that problem, he said, the government "goes broke." "I freely confess," he said, "that we on the committee are lacking in experience and ability for our jobs. But we unite in a desire to serve busi ness. We're not looking for victims, nor is the Department of Justice in its anti-trust investigation. We're looking for a way out. We need it. Look overseas. Europe is bankrupt, starting a new war with the last one not paid for and our own country has piled up a $40,000,000,000 debt." And, in the ability to blunder and learn, in the old process of trial and error, lies the hope of human progress. On the contrary, delegation of too much power, its surrender so com pletely that we cannot take it back, means that we have lost our power of thinking, of decision, of racially grow ing wisdom. Until a generation or two are on the road to become col lective "yes-men," syncophants and robots. One-man may decide one question better than 120,000,000 may. On the other hand, he will blunder more completely and disasterously. And when the people blunder, all the people suffer. But, when the dictator blunders, the people do the suffering. And they have no redress.- Unless someone shoots the dictator or he dies. Our's is the best government in the history of the world because we hire the managers of our public business for stated terms. And, when these contracts expire, they have to renew their contract, if they and we want to, on the basis of performance. Just like your church. Or your village, or any firm of business you may be so fortunate as to have an interest in. Because democracies are slow, they must delegate more power in emer gencies, which need quick action. But we are safe as long as we know what we are doing. That we are dealing with temporary conditions by temporary expedients. And that we must retain the power and the agencies through which we can take back our rights of self-man agement when the emergency has passed. And wise ones have said that the enslavement of people who hold fast to the free ballot is impossible. It looks that way, doesn't it? And right there is the differ ence between a democracy and a dictatorship. In the first, the people have retained the say-so. They have the power to-give or to withhold. And they give or withhold as conditions dictate. A dictatorship is a democracy gone wild. By force or persuasion, the people have been fooled into giving up all their power, even the machin ery for regaining that power. And so they are marching up to the machine guns in Europe, in the hands of other puzzled and frightened fellow beings, because they are more afraid of the machine guns that their master has than they are of those of the enemy he has selected. And they will only be free again when the fears are reversed. 'e*y u'~r, FIRST NATIONAL BANK AND TRUST CO.

Reds Deceived Labor, Leon Trotsky Charges Mexico City (ILNS).—Leon Trot sky, exiled former Russian Soviet war commissar, denounced Russia's invasion of Poland as "shameful and criminal" and a betrayal of world la bor. He declared here it was appar ent that while Russia was discussing with France and Britain the "military defense of Poland," she was studying "with representatives of the German general staff the question of the de struction and repartition of Poland."
