The Time For Summing Up
Three years of depression have ended and we can
begin to sum up.
Hard times have brought ill winds—but they have al
* so brought some healthful breezes.
Business and individuals have been forced to “write
-down” fictitious valuations and standards. This has natur
ally caused a great deal of hardship and a long black list
of bankruptcies. But real readjustments had to occur to
put a sound foundations under family and business life.
Those who expanded and operated on the principle
- that that which goes up need never come down, and that
boom prosperity would continue forever, had to
be deflated-
The individual has found that it is possible to live hap
pily and comfortably on a pre-war basis. He had found
that the arbiter of wages is what the dollar will buy. He’s
come down to earth.
These are the “healthful breezes” of depression. The
decks have been cleared for action, and the way to recov
ery is open.
As for the problems of depression, they are still vital
and intense. Writing in the Yale Review, Sir Arthur Salter
observed that 1933'wi1l be one of the most crucial years in
modern history.
The pressing and increasing weight of taxation stifles
the capital (industry) of the world, creating unemployment
and preventing industrial expansion and the further in
vestment of money.
The burden of armaments, with their drain on nation
al incomes and their constant threat to world peace, grows
greater. In every important country the cost of wars, past,
present and future, is the major item in the national bud
get. -* * -
The question of foreign trade looms large on the eco
nomic horizon. In normal times, foreign sales amount to
ten per cent of the gross in this country—and ten per cent
is the margin between profit and loss in the average busi
ness. Today foreign trade is almost non-existent, due large
ly to a new and intense spirit of economic nationalism
which finds its expression in tariff wars and embargoes.
Almost every economist of distinction, here and abroad,
stresses the need for revitalizing foreing trade as a factor
in the work of recovery. Tied up with this is the problem
of silver, which affects the purchasing power of half the
world’s people. When silver is depressed, as at present, the
silver standard countries are unable to buy in the gold
standard markets.
The picture at home is undoubtedly more encouraging
than the world picture. We have the finest industrial or
ganism in existence—we have the factories and the ma
‘ chines and the farms that are adequate to our needs. Our
utilities, our railroads, our oil companies, our insurance in
stitutions, are the harbingers Os American progress. They
represent honest national assets, as against the fictitious
assets we counted on in the boom days. Because the ma
chinery of distribution has slowed, it does not mean that
the machinery of production is lacking or faulty.
Our greatest single problem is unemployment- Ten
million of our working population is at present out of a
job, and its buying has come to a stop. Much of this un
employment is temporary—part of it is the result of ma
chine displacement of labor. Today the foremost indus
trialists are working toward plans to shorten the working
day and the working week, and to provide some means of
unemployment insurance that will assure the able and will
ing worker a livelihood in bad times as well as good. It is
difficult to believe that their efforts will end in failure.
The weight of taxation which forces retrenchment, is pre
venting the employment of many of those now seeking jobs.
This is America at the opening of 1933—a vast and
incalculably rich land, which is gradually emerging from
depression and entering a new era. It is still a land of prom
ise, as it was in the days of the Argonauts. It has lost
nothing that it really possessed. Its earth is still fruitful,
its mines are still filled with metals, its factories are ready
to make the necessities and luxuries its people want. Its
people are courageous, and they still have faith. Its lead
ers retain those vital qualities—intelligence and vision-
Americans will pull out of the depression—and, from the
lessons that depression has taught, it may find a means of
preventing both extreme rises and extreme drops in the
economic and social cycle, and of creating genuine, per
manent and sound prosperity.

To Ex-Governor Hunt
On Monday your public services reached an end.
To the people of Arizona your distinguished career is a
household possession. It began more than thiry years ago
with honesty, integrity and courage for the foundation.
And during these years this same honesty, integrity and
courage erected a superstructure for the people that will
be a landmark along the corridors of time unto the farth
est generations that call Arizona home.
At this time a review of your services is unnecessary.
You are living among us and your work is as of yesterday.
Your principles are sturdy; your purposes definite, and
your ideals for the state were pressed home during your
campaigns with an earnestness that time has not erased
from the memories of your fellow-citizens- Your rugged
convictions concerning your duties to the state hnd of her
needs and necessities raised up many enemies; likewise,
many friends upheld your standard.
No man with hazy thoughts, subnormal ideals and
flabby leadership can be seven times governor. From the
inception of statehood until this day Arizona has had
many problems requiring the services of keen statesman
ship and sincere devotion to duty for their solution. This
pioneer commonwealth traveled no beaten path but blaz
ed the way through financial and governmental tangles
that the people might have homes, security and content
ment. Under your leadership, supported by the sturdy
manhood and zealous womanhood of the state, this hope
blossomed into reality.
As time runs its course and the blazing heat of con
flict fades into the warmth of the afterglow the true sta
ture of George W. P. Hunt will be reflected. The anger,
bitterness and rancor of today will give way to modera
tion, understanding and the sympathetic insight of the
morrow. The thoughtful will realize that their paths, how
ever divergent and far apart from yours today, will con
verge at the goal you sought—the welfare of society that
brings happiness to each member.
And now, at the conclusion of the labors of the day,
with the evening of life resting upon your brow, as the
Friend of Man, we trust that for many days you may be
spared in health and vigor to partake of the fruit of the
seeds you planted- And, with the Evangelist, we reverent
ly join in the commendation you truly merit, “well done
good and faithful servant . . .enter thou into the joy of thy
Lord.” (Miami Silver-Belt)

Mix fun with work
Plenty of good healthy fun along
with their educational projects is mak
ing the 4-H clubs of Gallatin county,
Montana, the most attractive to rural
boys and girls of any youth movement
in that section. County agent R. E.
Bodley, publishes a little monthly mim
eographed paper for the county clubs,
and it is full of pep from start to
finish. Every club appears to try to
outdo the other in reporting on
activities.
Something of the spirit which has
been developed in this and other ways
is reflected in a verse contributed by
Nellie D.ykstra, a club member. It
reads:
Let’s not begin a certain thing,
Or start to solve a riddle,
Unless zee mean to see it thru.
And not stop in the middle.
This same girl contributes another
verse which shows the lure of club
work for her, and no doubt others. It

Why climb a mountain’s lofty

While you can do club work
at home;
Why seek the shore, why sail

t hce.
The leader of the Priscilla club i?
now Mrs. Beecher Chambers, and shfc
tells in verse how she came to have tht
office:
Our Becker had some little
clubs,
As bright as bright could be.
Tell everywhere that Becker

A club zvas sure to be.
They followed her all day and
night
Until no rest had she,
And then our Becker had to
give
Priscilla’s Club to me.

NOGALES, ARIZ., SATURDAY, JAN. 14, 1933
PRESS OPINIONS, CARTOONS
AND OTHER FEATURES
Journalists Are Bred To Stand Adversity
While many banks and other institutions in Ohio have
collapsed under the present economic pressure, not a single
newspaper has failed, was pointed out by Clarence J.
Brown, secretary of state of Ohio and publisher of several
newspapers, in a recent address before nearly 200 men and
women of the press in connection with the Hall of Fame
meeting at Ohio State University. We are not sure that the
press of any other commonwealth can claim any such 100
per cent record of survival, but reports we receive indi
cate quite clearly that casualities among the newspapers
of the nation have - been less than those of any other im
portant line of business.
Without wishing to revive the old picture of the starv
ed, out-at-elbow and down-at-heel editor, there are ele
ments of it that point a moral and contain a practical ap
plication. Journalism was bred in adversity and during its
early, and a considerable part of subsequent, career was
like a step-child at the table of mammon. A hardy breed
the practitioners must needs have been to endure. Running
foot-races with the sheriff was a common form of exer
cise, developing a fleetness which, while they suffered fre
quent incarceration on other charges, enabled them to keep
fairly free of debtors’ prisons.
Editors and publishers were hung, drawn and quarter
ed, tortured and branded, generally for dignified and high
sounding crimes, but they did not, as a rule, sink to the
felonies and misdemeanors of the sordid and menial. Some
would-be humorous and tongue-in-cheek commentators
have attempted to point out that most of the early news
paper men had no credit, hence could not get into debt
and that, anyway, it would have been folly to imprison
them, as so doing would have entailed their being a per
petual charge upon the state. Such vaporings are unworthy
of notice. Os course they had credit, otherwise they could
not have carried on the relentless campaigns—ending often
in martyrdom—which furnish some of the most inspiring
pages of history.
The main point is that, newspaper publishing, trained
in a school where brickbats were more common than con
fetti, learned to survive under conditions that would .have
killed less brave and purposeful endeavors. Journalists dis
covered what it meant to give much and receive little. The
experience didn’t exactly fatten them, but it' did develop
the bone and sinew so much more useful to fighters than
is adipose tissue. Hard times of today summon a spirit to
the profession that is a throw-back to the courage and re
sourcefulness of its forbears.
The record of newspaper survival throughout the de
pression is a lesson to business in general, to cut cloth to
fit the size and design of the garment. Bankers should be
impressed that publishers’ loans are a good risk; but will
they be so impressed? We opine not. (Publisher’s Auxil
iary)

TIME FOR EVERYTHING
THE disciples had many worries. They wanted to get it clear
as to their relative positions in the new Kingdom; they were
concerned because outsiders, not properly initiated into the organi
zation, were claiming to be followers of Jesus and doing miracles
in liis name. They fretted because there was so
much work to be done and the days too short for
| doing it..
But Jesus towered magnificently above it all.
Wherever he went the chikireti flocked. Pomp and
circumstances mean nothing to them. 1 heir in
stinct cuts through all outward semblance with a
keen swift edge. So they swarmed around, tug
s ging at his garments, climbing on his knees, beg-
I ging to hear more of his stories.
Bruce Barton It was all highly improper and wasteful in the
disciples’ eyes. But, Jesus would have none or it.
"Suffer little children to come unto me!” he commanded. And he
added one of those sayings which should make so clear the mes
sage of his gospel. "They arc the very essence of the Kingdom of
Heaven,” he said, “unless you become like them you shall in no
wise enter in.” Like them . . . like little children . . . laughing . . .
joyous . . . unaffected . . . trusting implicitly . . . with time to be
kind.
To be sure Jesus was not always in the crowd. He had his
long hours of withdrawal when, in communion with his Father, he
refilled the deep reservoirs of his strength and love. Toward the
end he was more preoccupied. He knew months in advance that
if he made another journey to Jerusalem his fate would be sealed;
vet lie never wavered in his decision to make that journey. Starting
out on it his mind filled with the approaching conflict, his shoulders
burdened with the whole world’s need, he heard his name called
out from the roadside in shrill unfamiliar tones. “Jesus . . . Jesus
... thou son of David .. . have mercy on me.”
It was the voice of a useless blind beggar.
. Jesus stopped.
“Who called my name?” *
"Nobody, Master . . . only a blind beggar ... a worthless
fellow ... Bartimseus ... nobody at a11... we’ll tend to him,” said
the disciples.
“Bring him here.”
Trembling with hope he was guided forward. The deep rich
eyes of the Master looked into those sightless eyes. The mind which
had been buried in the greatest problem with which a mind ever
wrestled, gave itself unreservedly to the problem of one forlorn
human life. Here was need; and lu: had time. . . . The man was
healed.
