Certainly. It had been a depressing
affair. He had anticipated that Eu

he had not counted on her being im

not be postponed. He had done what
he could to save Vivian. It would be

No fault of hers, actually, but quite

Watch This Space
That Capital Once Held
No Longer In Practice
By CHAKLUS I’ STEWART
Central Ptm Staff Writer
Washington, Feb. 2.—Any farmer
can see that reduction In agricultural
production will increase prices ; of
The trouble is that, when the de
sirability (from agriculture’s stand
point) of such reduction has been
agreed upon ,the almost Irresistible
tendency is for each individual far
mer to plant more and cultivate
harder than ever. The assumption is
that others will reduce, as a result of
which he will make a barrelful of
This principle is well recognized;
agriculture's doctors in the senate
and house of representatives discover
ed it quite awhile ago.
Now It is beginning to be observed
that the same principle, slightly modi
fied by different conditions, inter
feres with practical application of the
theory that urban industry profits by
high wages and short hours. Consum
ers of products are mostly working
men and their families, and the larger
their incomes, better customers
they are. Besides which they need a
sufficient margin of leisure to enjoy
their autos, radio sets, et cetera. Or
why should they buy them?
The theory is as clear to captains
of industry as it is to the farmers
that fewer bushels of crops will sell
for more per bushel.
But in practice—
While each individual captain of in
dustry is heartily in favor of the
maximum scale for a curtailed day
(and weak, too, maybe) in all the
plants of his competitors, he argues
that his own particular concern can
not possibly get by without cutting
the pay of its staff to the bone and
wringing the last ounce of energy out
For example, it is not so long since
President James A. Farrell of the TJ.
S. Steel corporation gave Hail Colum
bia to other corporations for slashing
the wages of their employes. Never
theless, the steel corporations present
ly slashed the pay of its own em
ployes. It issued a statement explain
ing that it had to.
Managers of the transportation
companies insist that the pay cut for
which they have been fighting so
persistently is to be for a year’s dur
Officials of the railroad brother
hoods, however laughing mirthlessly,
remark that, onoe cut, they consider
the old rates’ restoration at the year’s
cud about as likely as a resumption
of foreign debt repayments at the end
of President Hoover's moratorium.
To what extent reductions have
been effected by the introduction of
so-called “efficiency methods’’ and
"piecework systems” labor statistic
ians admit that they have not much
idea -the camouflage has been so
subtle. They assert that economy at
the workers’ expense has been the
object wherever such methods and
systems have been installed—which
is to say, in thousands of factories
throughout the country.
The theory that highly paid labor
is capital’s most valuable asset was
something more than a mere theory.
It was an accepted belief while times
continued booming and jobs were so
plentiful that there literally waa com
petition for men to fill them. *
Today it evidently is in serious dan
ger of being relegated to the status
of a theory only —pretty, hypothe
tically, but impossible for any indus

And, simultaneously .all sorts of
credit devices are being resorted to
in order to stimulate markets, ad
vance commodity prices- and, of
course, increase the cost of living.
