MAX WILLIAMS ...Editor and Publisher Advertising rates furnished on application. Subscription rates |2.00 per year ANOTHER POSTAL RULE The post office department at Washington has ruled that persons must put their return address on the exter ior of all correspondence sent through the mails. A 5c charge wfll be made for returning your letter, if it docs not bear your address. The letter is not called for will be sent to the dead letter office- opened and addressed to the signature on the letter. But you'll have to dig up a nickel to get it. Better write your name and address on the envelope before mailing. There are so many new laws, promulgations, rules and edicts coming out oi Washington. State Press missed that one about the return charge for undelivered letters. If Mr. Farley requires that the return address be printed on mailed letters, it may be that he is side-kicking for the government printing office. That office prints envelopes for the public as well as the government departments for less than cost and charges the difference to the federal treasurer. In fact, the losses annually sustained by the printing department at Washington are all made up by treasury appropriation. L'ncle Sam is a good monev-niuK er, notwithstanding it takes an enormous amount of cap ital to keep his various businesses going. Still, if it shall hereafter be accounted wrong, and costly, to mail letters without the return address it may be a help to the private printers. They may get some of the overflow business in envelope printing, although the government printery will pick off the big orders, of course. Private business is suf fering from government competition in several directions, but the printers* have suffered more and longer. Other business haven't sympathized with the printers, but ex pect printers to sympathize with them.—State Press in Dallas News. One of the main problems of readjjustment is that every man wants to go on undisturbed in the way that he is going, make no changes and give nothing up. It is quite obvious that improvement of any kind will never come in this way. It is equally obvious that if improved conditions come about permanently many changes and many radical adjustments will have to be made. It should be clear to all. that when better times return, as they eventually will, that if we continue with the same practices in which we have indulged in the past, and which are directly respon sible for present conditions, we are going to wake up one of these fine days and find ourselves in another depres sion even worse tha this. Like causes always produce like results. The marvel of it is that an intelligent race can’t see it. No one should be afraid of progress and new ways of doing things. Nothing is so hopeless as a closed human mind. Prejudice is the bar that locks the mind against progress .advancement and the reception of new ideas. It sometimes requires more intelligence to recognize merit in a new plan than it does to cling blindly to an old the ory. Venturing out requires courage, initiative, alertness, energy. To simply hold fast to an old system may be merely an evidence of mental lethargy and lack of cour age to venture. Detroit women are boycotting meat because as they claim there is too much difference between the cost of the live hog the meat. As a suggestion to the Detroit wo men, it might be said that for some time the rest of the country has been thinking that there is too much differ ence between the cost of the pig iron and the finished au tomobile. Good roads boosters everywhere agree that the coun try would be considerably better off to day if the relief money had been spent exclusively on the construction of good roads rather than on the many trifling projects that were considered in the effort to furnish employment. The good roads would have provided a utility that would be of value. The most deluded fellow is the one who thinks that the scheme that received favorable attentio nin conggress to soak the rich will not touch him. The inheritance tax is the only tax that is not passed on to the consumer and we are not sure that away won’t be found to accomplish this. The depression has taught among other things the value of a savings account or a cash reserve. It has also taught the advantage of being out of debt. The man who does not owe anything and can save only S2OO a year is five times ahead of tho fellow of the same ability who owes $1 000. (. ar drivers are divided into four classes. Those who ignore the law. those who are ignorant of the law, those who obey the law to escape punishment, and those who obey the law because obedience is right. , \\ hat a blessing it would be if everything that was lost was as easily found and dug up as the buried hatchet. EQUITABLE REGULATION AT LAST The bill providing for reg ulation of trucks and busses in interstate commerce has passed both branches of Con gress. and has been approv ed bv the president. No fan fare of trumpets attended its passage or signing, and it did not "make” the head lines But from the standpoint of the general welfare, few pieces of legislation passed by recent Congresses can compare with it in import ance. The bill does not penaV/- trucks and busses. It simply places their regulation with in the jurisdiction of the In terstate Commerce Commis sion. w hich has strictly regu lated railroads i n every phase of operation. It puts all carriers on the same equitable basis, so far as regulation and federal sup ervision is concerned.

First, jit will make it possible to control and eliminate the so called "wildcat" bus and truck operator, with improp er equipment, inadequate in surance. and no Sense of re sponsibility that falls upon, those who transport persons i and goods. In this way it will he of immense benefit to established, well-operat ed truck an<l bus systems which have been greatly damaged by the irresponsi bles within their industry.
