FEAR IS WHAT DOES IT, and many a
car-owner has felt that freezing chill this sum-
mer, when a sudden, new noise from his motor
has filled him with dread that his car was chug-
ging its lust.
There's nothing like that fear to make a stupid
driver resolve to follow better driving practices.
The intelligent motorist needs no sucn warning;
and he always makes certain that the motor runs
only with quality oil in the crankcase.
Obviously there are a number of such oils. And
to help you select one of them, easily and with
certainty, Phillips gives you these facts:
Phillips offers a number of oils because car-
owners' preferences and pocketbooks vary. But
when you want our best oil, remember Phillips
tells you frankly that Phillips 66 Motor Oil is our
finest quality . . . the highest grade and greatest
value . . . among all the oils we offer to average
SV It's good for your motor, under today's
reduced driving conditions, to change oil every
two months, say experts. For that change, and
for seasonal draining and refilling, you make sure
of getting a quality lubricant, when you simply
say: Phillips 66 Motor Oil.

There's no reason for empty sockets or
poor home lighting today. Most electrical
dealers now have lamp bulbs in all com-
mon home sizes. You can "light up" at low
cost, and make sure that everyone in the
house has proper illumination.
Of course, you need more than bulbs to
produce the proper light for easy, com
fortable seeing. Check up on these points
Keep bulbs free of dust and dirt. Keep
reflector bowls and shades clean.
Put the right size bulb in each lamp
If possible, have white linings in your
lamp shades, to reflect more usable light.
Move lamps closer to points of use, so
they shed more light directly on the work.
In rearranging lamps, you may also be
able to make them serve two people, and
so increase their usefulness.
Your family needs good light, for the
long evenings of fall and winter. Make
sure they get it. Sight is priceless—light is

DR. HAAKE OPENS: "Private En-
terprise" is the label we have put on
Individual ownership of the tools of
production and exchange. Under that
system, enterprise must please the
customer or fail. Opponents of Indi-
vidual ownership seem to resent the
(act that the customer can throw out
)f work the workers In enterprises
that do not please him, and argue
!hat if government owned the tools,
ihis dlsemployment could not take
place. In other words, the opponents
f individual ownership want the
government to take freedom of choice
away from the customer and force
him to accept the products of govern-
ment-owned factories regardless of
whether he likes the products or the
prices. No matter how thin you slice
;this theory, it is still employment by
government force. Obviously "full"
employment could be attained by
complete government domination, Just
as the southern planters had "full"
employment of their slaves, but 1
don't think we'd like it. In America
"employment" has always been the
'voluntary exchange of goods and ser-
vices between workers. We "employ"
each other and we have done a very
good job of it when government was
content to be itself—that is, the traf-
flc cop—and has not tried to play God.
MR. MARSII CHALLENGES: "Pri-
vate Enterprise" means the right not
to use production facilities whenever,
is often, scarcity means higher prices
ind higher profits. The consumer's
mind is made up largely by the $16
billion a year of advertising with
little regard for facts. Only under a
complete dictatorship could govern-
ment, at its peril, determine produc-
tion against consumers' desires. So-
cial ownership and social controls go
together, and the purpose is to bene-
fit consumers, not to make profits for
owners. The Bible, not the Commu-
nist Manifesto, enjoins, "If any man
will not work, neither shall he eat".
"Private Enterprise" excludes coupon
.clippers from this sound pi :eiple.
(jvhlle social ownership inclv :->s all
'able to work.
OR. HAAKE REPLIES: Mr. Ma.ih.
I in condemning "coupon clippers",
' that is, the 50.000,000 or mo. e Amer-
icans who own corporation too's. for-
gets that corporation loci's are born
only when workers exchange fruits
;of their labor for ownership of tools
Without these tools workers would
produce (and, therefore, receive) less
than 25% of present levels The tools
do at least 75% oj the work. Do |/ou
think (hat 3% is too tnucli for their
owners? Mr. Marsh also forgets thai
the people who depend most up>n
dividends and Interest [or the neces-
sities of life are those millions of
thrifty old folks whose income is less
than $500 per year.
MR. MARSH OPENS: The best
proof private enterprise cannot pro-
vide full employment, that is sus-
tained employment of all employa-
bles, Is that It never has. It never
approached such employment, except
under conditions which led to a col-
lapse, such as the economic idiot's
delight, which ushered in the stock
market collapse of 1929, the era of 15
million unemployed which followed,
"Hoover prosperity", and the current
war, which has employed nearly all
employables. There was fairly full
employment while we had good free'
land, and before extensive mechani-
zation from farm to factory, but not
since. Our productive plant, farm, as
well as factory, has outstripped our
capacity to consume out of current
income, which is essential to sus-.
tained consumption, as will be bru-
tally obvious, when even 6 million
soldiers arc demobilized, and 8 mil-
lion workers disgorged from war pro-
duction plants. Private enterprise is
operated for profits, not to provide
employment, nor to increase con-
sumption. It necessarily fears price
reducing surpluses. Its breakdown
was concealed during the Coolidge
era by installment buying. Its break-
down was evidenced by bonus march-
es, and the army of unemployed in
Hoover's regime. Its breakdown was
concealed in "New Deal" days by the
policy of deficiteering. Private enter-
prise precludes the economy of abun-
dance, essential for full employment.
DR. HAAKE CHALLENGES: Mr.
Marsh's orthodox Marxism contains,
the usual content of confusion. For
example, what Mr. Marsh calls
"profit" is payment for the use of
tools. What Mr. Marsh Is actually
saying, therefore, is that private en-
terprise involves payment for the use
of tools. It is childish to conceive of
any system where tools are not paid
for. The owners of America's tools
receive about 3% a year on their in-
vestment. The owners of Russia's
tools—the Russians who bought the
government bonds which were used
to buy the government tools—art
guaranteed 12% on their investment.
The difference between 3% and 12%
illustrates the difference between
private and government ownership.
1\1U. MARSH REPLIES: I do not
advocate confiscation of private prop-
erty or "tools"—government should
pay owners fair prices, but should
not permit dividends on champagne
prices for watered stock. Private'
owners of America's tools get much;
more than 3% on a fair valuation,
but Dr. Haake holds government
should guarantee such owners a good!
return on their "investments" even
if several times what the "tools ' ar«j
worth. Is he moving to Russia? The,
consumer pays the freight. Corpora-
tions have about $57 billion of liquid
reserves, but about half their capi-
talization is water. Government mus?
retain its "tools" for war production
