Inspector Explains
Berry Measurements
It seems to be a rather common
practice for berry and cherry
growers who sell these fruits in
bulk or at their home places to
use the gallon measure, states R.
E. Bancroft, inspector for the
Montana department of agricul
ture.
The gallon as commonly used
liquid measure and the Mon
tana weights and measures law
states: "It shall be unlawful for
any person to sell solid substances
by liquid measure."
Therefore, he said, all persons
selling fruit by the liquid gallon
violating the law and giving
the buyer approximately 14 per
cent less fruit than they should
receive for four quarts dry mea
sure.
Berries and cherries should be
sold by the standard dry measure
quart or by the pound and never
by the gallon, he said.

Who May Think?
Stopped by a traffic signal while
driving in a narrow, busy street
few days ago, my ear caught a fa
miliar, musical note. Just beyond
the sidewalk, through a big, open
door, a blacksmith was shaping
shoes for a farmer's heavy team.
Horns behind me suggested moving
along before I had finished looking,
but it was an inspiration to watch
this workman, so skillful and ener
getic.
Moving-picture blacksmiths are
elderly gentlemen with droopy mus
taches, but not this man. He was
about 30, clean shaven and active.
The tempo of his hammer was live
ly. The hopeful picture he unwit
tingly posed of post-war America has
come to mind several times since.
More recently I have been listen
ing to men discuss post-war plans
that involved moulding public opin
ion.
Fabricating Sentiment
"Knowledge is Power." The words
are supposed to have flowed from
016 peQ ol ZfZZf 7° about 300
fears ago, but I think Bacon lifted
thls ch ° lce blt h of Zf* 0 ™ S t ol °:
" on ; f r ° v t erbs 2 1' 5 ' has t stood
the tast oi U Z e : Popular sent ! m
can be moulded. No informed per
son will deny it. Hitler did it. Na
tional leaders do it all the time,
consc i 0 usly or unconsciously, for
tt /
years in China I
watched selfish local war lords ex
ercise their power over a patient,
toiling peasantry. It could be done
easily where the great mass of the
people were unlearned, as in China,
where 80% could neither read nor
write. Unlearned masses sometimes
rebel, but they usually fail because
the energy they exert is not power;
only ill-directed force.
Common Sense of Most
For 156 years the United States
has prospered and grown as a re
public. This is superior to a democ
racy in that it provides for the safe
ty and protection of minorities. A
democracy places the minority at
the mercy of the majority, some
times just as heartlessly as a dic
tatorship. That is why minorities
have retained freedom in Amer
ica; why each individual is still free
to think for himself.
It is impossible to get a corner on
a nation's ideas. Every man and
woman has a brain and there is
only one way to keep them from
utilizing these assets to enrich them
selves and the whole race, namely,
keep 'em ignorant. The American
way Is the other way: schooling is
free; libraries are everywhere;
press and radio prosper keeping
people informed. Our people have
knowledge and our nation has
power.
An Offensive Figure
A country, whose leaders want the
benefit of the best thinking of the
whole nation, is on its way up. A
nation that confines its thinking and
planning to boards and bureaus is on
its way down. Central planners rea
son thus: "The blacksmith has a
head on him, but so does his ham
mer. Why bother about either? We
will do the thinking and the plan
ning."
Germany planned for the whole
of her people, but her wages were
only half as high as American wages
In 1939. Russia does governmental
planning for all of her people. Wages
there were about one-sixth of Amer
ican wages in 1939. I am for keep
ing our Republic, for 'drawing on the
Intelligence of our entire population
and for keeping a well and correctly
ixxformed public. "Knowledge is
Power."

reorganization of the Government of the
United States as we have known it for

M
He was advocating the blanketing, of the United States
■with all-powerful Government oerporations or "Authorities."
Mr. Ickes .was frank, at least, but does the system under
which the United States has grown great in the past 150
years need radical and abrupt reorganization? Shall we have
7 to 9 Authorities controlling our daily lives or shdll we con
tinue to live as free people in 48 sovereign states?
