If there is any common m iisc in union leadership at. the present time, a co-operative program will be adopted, strikes will be avoided, produc tion will be increased, efficiency will be promoted and the situation handled to the best interest of all concerned. Lack ing common sense, and adopting an ar rogant, attitude, union labor may well expect the inevitable deluge. Announcements in the news dispatches that employes of various mills have ac cepted reductions rather than have the mills shut down and of the pruning of inefficient help from railroads and au tomobile industries indicate that labor realizes the situation and is willing to meet, it half way. The fact that one au tomobil" establishment of Michigan has York's appropriation for maintain anee of state roads this year is .$7,500,000, the highway commissioner and governor iKith asking an appropriation of $15,-000.000. Apparently the expenditure of mil lions in improved roads in New York has developed into a demand of $7,500, 000 n year for maintainance and almost $200,000,000 for reconstruction. This fact should be remembered when agitat ing hard 8urface roads for the state of Vermont. There are over 4.000 miles of highways in this state which naturally would be included in any system of state highways. Their reconstruction into hard surface roads would cost about S 1 7.. M). 000. If such reconstruct' should result in approximately the ame cost of maintenance as in New York they would require an annual expendi ture exceeding by over $2,00.000 the to tal expenses of the state government at present. "(ood roads" advocates should stop and figure uhat - their proposed scheme is likely to cost and the failure it has been in other states before urg- the state of Vermont. ''Few of us realize the importance of saving waste paper," says a magazine article dealing with the newsprint sit nation of today. The country is facing a wood and paper famine and the forests seem to be just melting away. It is estimated that a concerted saving of waste paper would make it possible to save 1,000.000,000 feet of lumber each year, waste paper such as old newspap ers, magazines or any kind of printed matter, taking the place of wood pulp in the manufacturing of certain kinds of paper, paper boxes, roofing and build ing board and shipping containers of various kinds. It is safe to say that anyone who saves waste paper for year for the first time will be surprised at the weight and value of what has I perhaps been always burned or thrown away before. ff.'iJS?

Miller, Ilepublican candidate for governor of New York, in his cam paignj speeches. Undoubtedly political considerations enter into them but his statements are so definite they can not be entirely ignored. It is known that New York has ap propriated millions of dollars for the construction of improved highways once called permanent highways. Judge Miller quotes the Democratic highway commissioner as saying the present highways are gone that they are no good. He declares that Governor Smith is advocating the policy of paying as you go in road work and adds that the bond money for constructing new roads ?s nearly gone. The highway commissioner declares the roads must be reconstructed at a cost of more than $40,000 a mile. There are, 4,500 miles of road needing recon struction and their reconstruction calls for more than S1SO.000.000. New preceding 32 months. The anti-drys wilt ......
