C\cu .'after Published every Friday. ** .'too4<liM matter M»rrh 7. 1930, at lb* post office at Civil dfe. Art ion*. under the Act of March 3, 1879. MAX WILLIAMS Editor and Publisher Advertising rate* furnished i<n application. Subscription rates $2.00 per year - , The farmers of this section have been having some difficulty in securing help to care for their crops. A great many who are out of jobs are working on relief at 50 cents per hour. They say they w ill work for the farmers if they will pay the wages, and the farmers say they cannot pay the wages that relief workers are now getting. It is pretty hard for a fellow to quit one job to take another with harder work and less pay. The same situation will likely follow when it comes to picking cotton. It is predicted that there will be a shortage in pickers when it is time to gather the crop. People have been coming here from other states for the picking season, and this year they have pretty good crops in those states, which will probably keep most of the pickers at home until the crop is gath ered. Relief work will likely be cut out to force the work ers to the farms, hut we hardly expect any of the white collars, who are living bountifully off the iam; fund, to be in the bunch. The Tenth Birthday Celebration scheduled for Cool idge on the 14th of next month, promises to be a gala occasion and we hope to see every one join in on this event and make it an occasion of which Coolidge will be proud and one long to be remembered by our guests A contin uous round of entertainment has been planned and work is going forward to get the events organized. Anything that benefits Coolidge helps every citizen here. We think our advertisers are a fine bunch of fellows, every one of them, and there is nothing too good for us to say about them, because they are progressive believe in our country and spend their # own money to promote their business and prosperity. If a public official should shove the public gravy bowl over by us and not let any one else sop out of it. it is probable we could think of some nice things to say about him. When you see a statement of a certain number of car licenses ifttued in the state, it does not mean that there are that manv cars in the state. Every time a car changes owership, new license and plates are required. In this way, licenses may be paid on the same car a dozen times. ■ If any of the old pioneers who bucked the prairies in a prairie schooner for days and weeks in search of a new home could hear the Alaska pioneers complain about their situation they would be inclined to snort. There is a dif ference it seems between pioneers and colonists. Pioneers expect to find things hard and unpleasant and uncomfort able. Colonists it seems expect the conveniences of civil ization on the frontier. We are in favor of the tvpe of inheritance tax that will take 98 per cent of the inheritance away from the daughters of American millionaires who persist in rushing to Europe and marrying some foreign title. We would not think of saying that these foreign titles marry for money alone but we can’t recall ever having heard of one of them marrying a poor girl. In many sections the statement “crops are better than they were last year” might not mean a great deal. In many sections last year not a bushel of corn or a bushel of wheat or a load of hay was raised in the entire county. At that there is a good deal of encouragement to be found in the statement that things are better than the year before. The Governor of Kansas announces that his state must have a larger penitentiary or grant more paroles. lx>oks as though the governor is putting himself in a crack. If more paroles are granted the Good Government League will object and if a new penitentiary is built the taxpayers w’ill object Every state has some resource upon which it is in clined to brag. Some brag on their hay, soma on their cotton, some this and some that but a careful check up of the list does not reveal any state making claim.'! for its crop of wild oats. The man who is least often led astray is the one who remembers that there is always two sides to every story. Next to picking out the right kind of wife, the biggest job is the selection of a good cantaloupe. A sign by the side of the road as you enter a western town reads: “4,076 people died last year of gas; 29 in haled it; 37 put a lighted match to it; and 4,000 stepped on it.” A local philosopher figures it out that about the only thing that can happen to a man that would be worse than being talked about would be to be completely ignored.

But live at ease and enjoy the comforts of life in retirement is what tries the nerve of the once busy man. We all of us know some thing’s wrong and are anx ious to do something, or join some movement to make : things better. But in our ignorance we are following leaders some of whom are ignorant as we are, and some who should be in the lunatic asylum or the penitentiary. A reader of Potpourri ac cuses me of repeating. Guil ty as charged I not infre quently dig back in the files and reprint paragraphs I printed twenty or th’rtv years ago. And some of them were not original w ith me then. Like Bill Rogers says, all I know I read in the pa pers. or hear by listening to others talk.

The case will next go to the Supreme Court which, according to eminent legal authorities, is almost • certain to uphold the deci sion of the lower tribunal. If that happens, it will mean that the present pro gram of government farm re lief has virtually collapsed. And that illustrates some thing that every citizen would do well to tihnk about— that governmental efforts to aid any class or group, no matter how well intentioned. All help must be mutual. No man can help a woman unless she helps him the , benefit of his help lies as much in the giving as the re ceiving. Harriet Taylor.
