NOW THEH PROBLEM OF SAV-
ING AND SPENDING
We hear of two kinds of relief
from the so-called depression. One
kind Is to spend money like drunk-
en sailors; the other is to save,
save, save, even to the relnklng
of old typewriter ribbons In the
Nevy Department. Which of these
theories Is correct?
It looks to us as tho it all de-
pends upon whose ox Is gored.
Saving as a habit is apparently
all righ for the one who practices
it, but wrong for the other fellow.
Likewise with spending.
The best kind of economy for any
country is neither radical saving
nor lavish spending. A normal
flow of commerce, serving normal
needs for normally minded people
appear to be the best way to pro-
mote the general welfare of the
country and of the individuals that
live In It.
America, admltedly a land of
plenty, Is In a "depression" only
as her people bfing about or per-
mit ABNORMAL conditions. Of
course, no one will deny that there
is enough of food, clothing and
shelter to supply all of the people.
What. then, is a "depression" in
a land like ours? It is a condition
where one considerable portion of
the population is engaging in reck-
lessness and the other portion
carrying on penuriousness. It Is
the abnormal condition #s relates
to production, distribution and con-
sumption. It Is a national and
individual economy gone "hay
Neither headlong expenditures
nor avaricious saving will bring the
desired normality. These times
bring extremes of thought, which
are as much the cause of the de-
pression as the depression Is the
cause of extreme thought.—PEG

Building permits issued in August

July In the total estimated cost in-
volved in the permits issued in 338
of the country's larger cities, ac-
cording to a recent statement by
the Bureau of Labor Statistics of
the Department of Labor. There
was an increase of 21.3 per cent In
the estimated cost of new resident

18 9 i*r cent in the estimated cost
of new non-residential buildings.
Dwelling units were provided for
8 028 families in the new buildings
for which permits were Issued dur-

1.7 per cent as compared with
dwelling units privided during the
month of July, 1931.
The UnUed States Government
contracts let during the month of
August. 1931. totaled 428.462.261.
Comparing permits issued in 290
identical cities during August, 1931,
and August, 1930. the report states
that there was a decrease of 10.3
per cent In total construction. A
decrease of 22.6 per cent in the
estimated cost of new residential
buildings: an increase of 1.5 per

My Dear Sir:
I am thinking seriously of an-
nouncing foe this office and as the
only platform upon Which I would
(.stand Is far different from the
usual political platform- I first
want to hear from a number of
Texas citizens and men from all
the different branches of industry
before I fully decide, therefore I
ask all who read this to write
Immediately their views upon the
First. A MANAGERIAL FORM
GF GOVERNMENT FOR COUN-
TIES AND STATE.
Second. TRUCK AND BUS COM-
PETITION WITH THE RAIL-
Third. A STATE INCOME TAX
Fourth. 43,000.00 OF THE AS-
SESSED VALUE OF EVERY

Fifth- A REDUCTION OF FIFTY
PER CENT IN TAX RATES OF
BOTH COUNTIES AND STATE.
Sixth. A READJUSTMENT OF
FREIGHT AND PASSENGER
RATES ON RAILROADS, EQUIV-
ALENT TO A DRASTIC CUT.
A MANAGERIAL FORM OF
GOVERMENT WILL CURE MANY
IF NOT ALL. THE OTHER ILLS
OF A POLITICAL GOVERNMENT.
BRAINS AND EFFICIENCY CAN
BE HIRED, BUT ARE SELDOM
POUND TOGETHER IN THE
OFFICERS WE ELECT.
BECAUSE INEFFICIENT MAN-
AGEMENT OUR TAX BURDENS
ARE ALMOST UNBEARABLE
AND ARE STEADILY INCREAS-
ING AND IT IS ONLY A MAT-
TER OF TIME WHEN OUR
COUNTIES. OUR STATE AND
OUR NATIONAL GOVERNMENT
ARE GOING TO BE FORCED TO
ADOPT A MANAGERIAL FORM
Any sensible thinking man knows
that if our state and county affairs
were managed by such men as
are now employed by our large
business organizations that we
would have a far more effective
and efficient and economical gov-
ernment. (I am not a politician
and know nothing about politics
but I do know when an institution
is being properly managed.) We
need efficiency and not popularity
In our state and county officers
If we ever get away from high
taxes and if we want to see Texas
bloom with prosperity and every
body busy and happy we must
abopt this form of government.
As long as we allow the politicians
to manage our state and county
affairs we shall be burdened with
taxes and graft and corruption In
office. Put Texas on a business
basis and in the hands of business
men and enjoy the blessings that
will come to us through this form
of government. It Is time for the
people, of all classes, to stop and
think and act and throw off the
burden of politics and politicians
and employ real business men to
manage the affairs of state and
county.—TOM M. DEES.

the fruits of his efforts is the
development of a scenic drive, now

the passing motorist views of the
river's picturesque waterfalls, whirl-

RADIO AND HEALTH
Radio, the crowning achievement of its time, and one of our
greatest blessings, may lie degraded to a mere matter of dollars
iitd cents, when mankind descends wholly to that level. Did you
ever think that your receiving set may lead you headlong into
the open arms of the nostrum-vender and quack, solely in the
inierest of his pocketbook? That you are made poorer and he the
richer by your own soft gullibility?
It pives me a first-rate case of nausea to hear the blatant yawp
of some hired man for a quack concern, pleading with me and you
tn go to the drug store, first thing in the morning and BUY a
bi'ttle of germ-killer that knocks 'em in a sjiecified number of
These fellows that never crossed the threshold of a pathological
laboratory in their lives, presume to tell me about "bacterit."
'J !.-v infer off-hand that you and I have a mouthful, neckful.
stomachful of potent germs, deadly in character, if not killed off
at otice by the great bottled savior of trfind and body; they juggle
handily with laboratory terms, as though thev had been raised
on test Utlies and retorts and chemical reactions; all to get YOU
and ME to BUY their gully wash and soak it into our systems.
And do we buy it? We certainly do; we buy stuff of which we
know absolutely nothing, at the solicitation of an itinerant who is
solely interested in the sum he can extract from your purse, and
vim knows and cares nothing aliout the stuff he is paid to peddle,

all the better—for the noStrum-vendor. For, nine out of ten,
you could use hot water and boracic acid with better results at
one-twentieth the cost.
A pood rule for the rural radio-fan is, to believe nothing he

dear reader, have been picked out to turn the grindstone. Sum-
mon your horse sense; that's my advice.

SOCIAL SERVICE IN' THE
Acts 4 .32-35; 6 1-4;
II Corinthians 9:1-7
Rev. Hanmel L). Price, DJ).
Christianity is far more than an
ideal. Uts principles can be put into
practice. Calvin Coolidge recently
said in one of his daily messages: "It
would be difficult to find anywhere on
earth a human being whose life has
not been modified in 9ome degree by
the influence of the Christian re-
ligion." Thought of others rather
than of self is basic. This began
with the Founder and every true fol-
lower has the same idea.
Today the world still needs the full-
ed expression of Christian socialism.
A> people had need in the Jerusalem
congregation, provision was made by
turning into a common fund whatever
could be spared. Many quarrels re-
sulted over the distribution of money.
When the apostles faced the situation
they realized that their work of
preaching was so great that they
could not also give adequate attention
to the physical needs of the growing
Christian community. Then Hie office
of deacon was inaugurated and seven
were chosen to undertake this special
type of service. This office of deacon
per<ist> in the church of today and a
Ioiik line of men and womea have thus
vers honorably served the Lord in
helping the poor. «
l.ater the gathering of the poor
fund was an extensive enterprise.
The Council of Jerusalem decreed
that Paul, and the other apostles to
the nations, should seek funds for the
poor in Jerusalem when they minis-
tered abroad. The church in Corinth
was held up as an example to the
friends in Macedonia quite as we are
urged today to measure up to the
gift nude by another. Thus what are
called modern financial pressure meth-
ods in raising money seem to be rather
