Hitting the Nail on the Head
From Montana Record-Herald
At Missoula there has been an m
I teresting discussion lately in the
newspaper columns on the subject of
' education, and ideas are different and
j ideals diverse- The American people
have been very strong, in theory at
least, for education, with their public
school system and the widely distri
buted colleges. The Missoula discus
sion suggests that a standard objec
tive should be established. In the
meantime, from the views express
ed, the people seem to be struggling
many trails, scattered all over
the field of acquired knowledge.
Ask a moving picture mad girl
what is an education, and she will
tell you that any girl who knows all
the film heroes and heroines by name
and has as many of their pictures
as she could gather together in her
brief career is reasonably well edu
cated, and may even claim some cul
ture. A successful business man will
say that an education—that is, one
worth while—consists of a grip on the
means by which you are able to get
the money.
We noted that one of the Missou
lian's correspondents said that he
whose heart was made glad by ap
preciation of the work of such paint
ers as Whistler, Innés and some oth
ers he named, and who could pick
out distinguished parts of the com
position of great musical composers
and enjoyed them, and could get plea
sure out of the beauties of nature
was truly educated Another gentle
man quoted Nicholas Murray Butler,
whose central idea on the subject is
that knowing how to live so the world
will be better for your having lived
is an education.
It is very evident that few Mon
tanans could qualify under the re
quirements of the music and arts
culturist above quoted, or toe the
mark set by Butler, or gain admis
sion into the movie girl's charmed
circle; and while many people are
striving to prove they have the suc
cessful business man's education, the
test is so severe the many are re
jected. A standard obviously is need
ed in America, so that we may know
what education is and all work in
unison toward it.
As a final contribution to the sym
posium of opinion on the matter, a
man whose children have just begun
going to school may be quoted. He
said the first smattering of educa
tion they acquired was in the nature
the hospital for a couple of weeks,
and the other grabbed off chicken
pox. After that they both got whoop
ing cough, with which they were then
struggling. But that was not all
there was to it, he understood- When
I they should return to school, there
j would be more of it, there being
I many more maladies in the curricu
lum. Yes, indeed, education at pres
; ent strays oil over the world
it particularly needs is analysis, de
finition, standards, fixed objectives,
and a universal goal.
(From Collier's Weekly)
Seven or eight year ago the sale
of motor cars practically stopped
everywhere in the winter months, ex
cept in the south and the bigger cities
where there was a demand for closed
cars. About that time there was an
automobile dealer in Fargo, North
Dakota, who sold a well-known De
troit-made car.
It's cold in the winter in Fargo. It
gets down sometimes to thirty or
thirty-five below zero. The ground is
covered with snow from December to
March- People never thought of us
ing motor cars in that country in the
In spite of that, this dealer sent
every little while during the winter
months an order to the factory, call
ing for immediate shipment. There
was something strange about it. No
other dealer in that part of the coun-,
try was doing any business. So the
manufacturer wired, asking him to
come to Detroit.
How do you manage not only to
sell cars up there, but how do you
get your customers to take delivery
of them this time of year?"
''Why," he replied, "there's no sec
ret about that. The people in my ter
as spring comes. I have to sell cars
to make a living, so I work just as
hard in the winter as I do in the
In fact, I work to better
advantage, because I am not burdened
with details, and can spend practically
all my time interviewing prospective
"When I find a man who is going
to want a car when the roads open I
try to convince him that it would be
good business to order it now, so that
when spring comes he will be sure
to have it- I convince him that slight
loss he might suffer by having his
money tied up for a few weeks will
be offset by the advantage of having
the use of his machine the moment
conditions permit.
"Now," he added, "why did you wire
me to come to Detroit?"
He did not know that dealers in
his part of the country were not
selling cars. He assumed that if
they were all working like himself
there might not be enough of his
particular make of car to go around
when spring came. He didn't know
it was hard or impossible to sell cars
j n w i n t er time. He had a living
rna i te> an d he did not propose to
j e ^ wea ther and a little snow in
terfere with him>
When he left for his home it was
to dispose of his business and re
trun to Detroit as assistant sales
manager of the company. He now
holds an important position in the
automobile industry.
Isn't one of the troubles with most
of us the fact ~that we spend too
much time sitting around thinking
about how hard it is for us to make
a living at our particular jobs?
Don't too many of us spend too
much time thinking up a good alibi
for not doing better than we do?
Aren't we too prone to indulge In
self-pity ?
If we-are engaged in the selling
of any thing, isn't it better for us
to be always trying to sell our goods,
even when we know that conditions
are against us, rather than to spend
too much time telling our friend or
our neighbor or our banker how bad
conditions are in our particular line?
If we keep on trying, we will at
least keep close to general conditions
and will know, of our own knowledge,
what these conditions really are.
There was snow on the ground in
Fargo, but one man continued to sell
automobiles. He didn't know it was
(From The Chicago Tribune.)
Representative Frear of Wisconsin,
a member of the house wavs and
means committee, opposes tne pro
posed sales tax on the ground that it
is designed to relieve corporations of
taxes on their profits and put the
burden on the workingman and as
sociated citizens. That talk is prob
ably good politics, but poor business.
More than two yeilrs of post-war
experience has proved that the person
who pavs the excess profits tax is
the ultimate cr^currer not the stock
holder or president of the corporation.
Tax experts, financiers, economics,
and fcusine:s men have made it clear
that the only good thing the excess
profits tax does is to provide income
for the government. That is good
and it is necessary. But at the same
time this tax withholds money from
reinvestment in business, and so pre
vents more general and economical
production, which in turn would mean
lower prices- That is bad and it is
unnecessary. It hampers the pros
i perity c<£ the nation.
What is needed is a tax on unnec
essary consumption rather than pro
duction, on idle capital rather than
working capital. Such a tax will pro
vide federal income and at the same
time stimulate instead of handicapp
ing industry.
It is proper to tax the rich man,
but the excess profits tax has fail
ed to do it. Witness the fortunes ac
cumulated in the last few years de
spite that tax. A new tax method
therefore is sought. The sales tax
is a tentative suggestion- The po'j
sible method of its application is st 11
subject to much discussion. Mr
Frear holds that it is bad because it
will take an extra penny from the
housewife who buys a bag of sugar
or a yard of caMco. Perhaps it will,
but it will take a hundred or a thous
and times as much from the wealthy
man who keeps a retinue of servants,
a string of automobiles, town and
country houses, etc.
It is designed to make the rich man
pay for consuming rather than owning
goods or money. It is designed to
make him a producer rather than a
waster. It is designed to make him
a factory employing men,
providing necessary commodities, and
contributing to general prosperity
rather than to allow him to live in
back into improved production wbuid
not be taxed- It would help the poor
man earn a living and buy goods at
cheaper prices, so that if called on
he could pay the penny extra for
calico and still be ahead.
idleness on. the interest of nonpro
ducing tax exempt securities,

The tax problem is vast, and we do
not presume to cover it, but such
talk as that of Mr. Frear is too much
like deception to be overlooked in
congress, where the problem must be
settled. We must have taxes. The
point is to assess them where they
will do the least damage to general
prosperity. If congress is wise rather
than political that will be the chief
point kept in mind.
