Prosperity is a modern watchword.
Recent events have served to focus
public attention to an unusual de
gree upon the immediate future of
business. Commenting on this phase‘
of prosperity, Walter S. Gifford, Presi
dent of the American Telephone and
Telegraph Company, recently said to
the Chicago Association of Com
'“At such times when perhaps the
pr{::nt is too much with us, it seems
to ‘me to be helpful to take a long
look backward and a long look for

our minds on the sources of our na-|
tional weglth and the prospects for
continued -economic progress in spite
of any temporary maladjustments
which may momentarily obscure the
This country today, Mr. Gifford
stated, enjoys an average standard
of living far higher than that which
obtains in any other country at pres
ent or any country at any time known
to history. This condition is often
ascribed to the country’s boundless
natural resources.
These resources are important, but
in trying to fashion a true picture,
it is worthwhile to remember that all
of these natural resources were here
before the Civil War, and at that
time there was no stream of foreign
observers landing on this country’s
shores to discover the secrets of its
The country had, it is true, made
use of the land, cut from the forests,
mined coal, iron and precious metals,
set up some manufactories and built
up a prosperity well beyond that of
the Colonial period.
But the possession of natural re
gources is not a guarantee of well
being nor prosperity. Natural re
sources are but tools for man to use
to reach the goal of his ambitions.
Other nations have had natural re

{ Sergius, P. Grace, Assistant Vice-
President of the Bell -Telephone Lab
oratories in addressing the Richmond,
Va., Chamber of Commerce recently,
was agreeably surprised and pleased
to have as a member of the audience
A. C. Mahon, one of the 100 men in this
country who use the artificial larynx,
a developrfent of the telephone lab
oratories. In speaking of the value of
this instrument Mr. Mahon was
quoted in the Richmond News-Leader
as saying:
“When I fost my voice three years
sources, but power and well-being o}
the nations which stand out in his
tory have rested largely upon treas
ure from conquered territories.
Today in this country the civiliza
tion that the United States is build
ing up is of a different sort. It is not
dependent upon subjugation of othe:
nations or tribute from them. It is
being . built upon sounder and more
permanent foundations. Its economic
objective is as broad as its politicai
The modern conception of the coun
try is that well-being as well as gov
ernment shall be of the people, by the
people and for the people.
Following this line of thought
President Gifford announced that the
Bell Telephone System, of which he
is the head, will spend over $700,000,
000 in 1930 for plant extensions, ad
ditions and betterments to the tele
phone systems serving the United
To illustrate the type of progress
made by the telephone industry, he
called attention to the invention of
the telephone by Dr. Alexander Gra
ham Bell a little more than fifty years
ago. In the relatively short time
which has elapsed since human
speech was first transmitted electri
cally, Mr. Gifford said that the tele
phone business has bgen so organized
and developed in the United States
that today practically any body, any
where, can talk at any time of the
day or night to anybody else, any
where else—not only in the United
States, but in Mexico, Cuba, Canada,
and the most of Europe.
The ability to render a service of
this magnitude rests upon a national
ized organization employing over
450,000 American men and women,
cperating physical properties repre
senting an investment of $4%000,000,
000 which are owned by more than
500,000 stockholders.
Constant improvements are still
being made in the scope, speed and
accuracy of telephone service, Mr.
Gifford stated, and new methods of
operation which permit of greater
economy are being devised.
In this industry the ultimate limit
of progress seems to be as far away
as ever. Only a short time ago a new
service was inaugurated—telephoning
to ships at sea. Insofar as scientific
knowledge is concerned, the Bell Tele
phone system has already conquered
space and time so that it is possible
technically to establish instantaneous
communication between any two per
sons anywhere in the world, be either
person or both on land, on the sea, or
in the air.
“As a matter of fact,” Mr. Gifford
said, “it is already scientifically but
not commercially practicable for each
telephone user to see the person with
whom he is talking, but greater scien
tific knowledge, as previously indi
cated, does not always make a new
discovery practicable.”
ago following my operation, it was
necessary for me to communicate'
with people by writing. This was so
unsatisfactory that I began looking
around for some instrument whereby
I could regain my voice. At this time
the Bell Laboratores invented the:
artificial larynx which I have been!
using since its invention, with re
markable success.”

JUNE KENNEDY firmly belleved
that love should be the tempestu
‘ous element of one's existence—with
thrills, - heartaches, moonlight nights
.and stolen kisses. She craved story
‘book illusions and a fairy prince. But
with Bill Bailey constantly in her
background there seemed small pro:-‘
pect for glamourous enchantment in
her love world. Steady, prosaic Blll‘
who managed a service station and
who was as unromantic as his nnme‘
and occupation. |
But the Fairy Prince did come. Not
in gorgeous trappings nor with pomp
and ceremony. He simply took a job
at one of the linotype machines in the
composing room of the same newspa
per where June worked. She first
glimpsed him while she waited for
her street car. He sat with his back
to the plate glass window and she
'moted with esthetic delight how the
‘April sun deepened the shadows in
"his dark hair and brought into cameo
‘relief the perfection of his features.
‘One day he seemed to sense her In
terest, for he turned his head and
June thrilled and blushed at the flash
ing smile—the eloquent glance from
brown eyes.
She discovered that the man of her
dreams—for so she called him in her
thoughts—was more prosperous than
the usual run of newspaper mechan
fcs. From her window in the classi
.fled ads she had seen him park a
.sport roadster of expensive make
when he came to work and the way
he looked the car over and pocketed
the keys indicated ownership His
‘clothes, too, had a careless elegance
lacking in Bill Bailey’s ready-mades.
June suddenly acquired the habit
of going home for lunch—and this
gave her two daily opportunities for
wordless greeting with her knight of
the window. One noon he smiled as
usual—then made a quiet expressive
‘gesture which she interpreted as a
signal to wait for him.
A few excited moments passed for
June. She wondered what they would
‘talk about—for surely he meant that
he was coming out. She watched him
set a few more lines and pick up the
-hot type slugs from his machine. Then
.he disappeared into a back room,
‘Presently a gangling youth with a
‘'smudge of ink on his chin came from
.the composing room and handed her
‘a note.
" “Van Ostrand told me to give you
this,” he said and left without fur
ther remarks.
June saw at a glance that it had
been set up on the machine and the
letters were slightly smudged.
“Dear Miss Kennedy,” she read;
“you see I have found out who you
,are—but I prefer to call you Blue
Eyes. I have been dreaming dreams
and seeing visions since your smiles
came into my life—but, alas!—l have
little hope of their materialization. I
‘fear, Blue Eyes—we speak a different
‘language. But you are very lovely—
and lovable.
“I shall be sad until you smile at
me, Blue Eyes. But if you never wait
again outside my window—my yester
days will still mirror your sweetness
—my tomorrows never he as dark.
“Hopelessly yours,
June had just finished reading this
puzzling communication when Jim
Stillwell, the editor, came up.
“Jim,” she asked, “what kind of a
fellow is Van Ostrand?”
Stillwell regarded her curiously.
“A prince if you ask me! Steady as
a clock—college education—no bad
habits. His folks are well to do
ranchers near Pendelton. No money
worries and no wife—but it’s sure
tough luck!”
“Why, what do you mean?” gasped
June; “with all those advantages I'd
say he was decidedly lucky!” :
“Money and jobs aren’t everything,
June,” commented Stillwell, glancing
hastily at his watch and moving on—
“ Van’s a deaf mute—and—"
A raucous blast drowned the rest
of his sentence as Bill Bailey rattled
up to the curb in a service car. June
stared at Bill as if she were seeing
him for the first time in her life. Good
old Bill in his greasy coveralls.
“Hop In!” commanded Bill. He was
like that. “Thirty minutes yet before
the whistle.”
June hopped. She also snuggled as
close as the hour and traffic rules
would permit. Bill was redolent of
gasoline—but somehow it was more
pleasing to her senses than the lotus
blossoms of her dreams.
“Bill, there’s lots of tragedy in life,
isn’t there? One day we dream dreams
and see visions—the next day there’s
nothing but broken fancies and—”
“Aw, June—how do you get that
way?” interrupted Bill with a cheerful
grin, “There’s always me! And there’s
a ring in Upton’s jewelry store that
will knock you for a row. Want to
see it, honey?”
“Bill,” replied June, very earnestly,
“there is such a thing as the psycho
loglcal moment—and I guess you
grabbed it. Let's go look at that ring!”
Increases Egg Production
Quartz glass is installed in the win
dows of a henhouse in England so that
the ultra violet rays will induce biddy
to lay more eggs. Tests have shown
that the process of incubation is thus
speeded up. When a quartz mercury
arc giving off ultra.violet rays was
used in an incubator 20 per cent of
the eggs were hatched from 24 to 48
hours sooner than other eggs treated
by the rays.

The Value of Appointments
Some local Democrats have been
wondering concerning the following:
It took President Hoover just eight
hours to appoint Charles Evans
Hughes Chief Justice of the Supreme
Court, the highest and most responsi
ble position in the nation with the
exception of that of President. Gov
ernor Ritchie of Maryland has been
several months in making the appoint
ment of a member of the Garrett
County School Board and he hasn’ti
completed the. job yet. |
According to the importance of the
two positions, how long, therefore,
would it have taken Governor Ritchie
to make the appointment of Chief
Justice had he been nominated and
elected President? |
The answer is something that would |
probably cause the wonderment of
one’s grandchildren’s children, for it
would be that long at least.
