No reason ( The managers of the various local oil stations have no more to do pumps they operate. The fact ision has a ■ i, with this high-handed action than is, no one in the state, not even the public service comm vestage of authority or control over prices of petroleum products sold here. We get our orders from an unseen power, who at any moment they wish can put their hands in the pockets of gasoline consumers and take what they want. Four cents added to the price of gas is not vitally serious for those who drive cars for pleasure or to save time. But coming at the present critical time this outrageous price order is just about the last straw to those who are compelled to depend on gasoline for industrial power and transportation. In the absence of any valid reason being advanced for this new and legalized method of racketeering, it has to he classed as a politi can maneuver designed to further stir up bitterness and discontent, and drive reason from the public mind. It is indeed an opportune time to "show up" officials now in office and inflame the electorate with a angry desire for a change, regardless of what it brings. This latest application of the screws, by big business, to the purses of the helpless public, is typical of the many things that have been going on this great republic, which are directly responsible for the condition of economic chaos and industrial revolt that now exists. But there is always an answer, always a hereafter. -o CHEATING OURSELVES The story is told of a dishonest worker. He and his family were roofless, whereupon a certain good Samaritan decided to surprise this poor man with a comfortable home. So, without telling his purpose, he hired this worker who was a builder, at a fair wage to build a house on a sunny hill, and then went on business to a far-away country. The builder was left at work with no watchman but his own honor. "Ha," said he in his heart. "I can skimp the material and scamp the work." So he went on spinning out the time, putting in poor service, poor nails, poor timbers. When the good Samaritan returned, the builder said: "That's "Good," was the reply. "Go Here is a fine house I built on the hill.' move your folks into it at once for the house is yours, the deed." The builder was thunderstruck. He realized that, in stead of cheating his friend, he had been industrially cheating himself when he did not know it was his own house he was building. That illustration reminds us vividly of the predicament our voters and taxpayers find themselves in today. They suffer under a burden that has become almost unbearable. They wail loud and long about the burdens of taxation, wasteful and fool ish governmental expenditure, graft and cheap politics, they not criticising the house they built themselves? Back a short time ago when most of us had more money than brains and when we were drunk on the power of the al mighty dollar, we openly voted for and supported candidates of a spendthrift character, knowing when we did so that we were "slipping in shoddy materials" in the governmental structure We knew that government, justly and eco But are we were building, nominally administered, required our sober thought and honest action, yet we dismissed the thought with the. snap of a finger and went right along with our own selfish pursuit of the dollar. We didn't have time to vote intelligently. Now we are reaping the rewards, built leaks and cracks and threatens to collapse. But we can't blame It on the other fellow. We built it ourselves. Let us profit by our lesson and build the next house as it Our democratic government isn't at fault. The fault W© have been cheating our Of course the house we should be. lies with us voters who built it. selves.—Guide, Batesvllle, Arkansas. — 0 - FARM BOARD REORGANIZATION The Federal Farm board is being reorganized along the lines contemplated in the declaration of policy set out by Congress when the Marketing Act was placed on the statute books. The purpose of Congress in passing this Act was to "Promote the effective merchandising of agricultural com modities in interstate and foreign commerce so that the industry of agriculture will be placed on a basis of economic equality with other industries, ♦ * * by encouraging the organization of pro ducers into effective associations or corporations * * * by pro moting the establishment and financing of the farm marketing system of producer-owned and producer-controlled cooperative associations and other agencies." , The reorganization propses to: 1. Advise and assist farmers in forming and operating their own cooperative associations. 2. Collect and distribute information on progress, organiza tion and business methods of farmer-owned and farmer-control led cooperatives. 3. Investigate and report on economic, legal, financial, social and other phases of farmer-owned cooperatives. 4. Compile and distribute among the farmers information on cooperative principles and practices and carry on a complete educational work on cooperatives among farmers. 5. Keep in close touch with economics and other matters covering the farm commodity situation and development, product ion control, land policies and other agricultural questions in order to adapt changing situations to meet agricultural marketing con ditions. 6. Assist new farmer cooperative enterprises in setting up loan applications and qualifying for such loans under the Market ing Act. The Marketing Act marks a great turning point in the econom ic life of the American farmer. It gives the farmer a. definite fir ing point. For 50 years agriculture has attempted, through its own efforts, to control its own sales agencies. But there were six million different farms and it was diffi cult to get together on a common agreement of cooperative policy. With the Marketing Act this problem has been solved. By work ing direct through the Farm Board cooperative sales agencies can be built up from county units into state units and from state national selling agencies which can and no doubt will, in a few years, control the sales of all farm products.—Clipped. unit IHIUM« ««Nil «milMHUMl -2s r • * i'ii .
