«• Ul ■ l r fc.1 l_f A n r C D
By C. WILSON HARD
Calvin Coolidge is reputed to
have once said "When there
are a great many people out
of work, you have unemploy-
ment." And it is this question
of national unemployment
which is causing great concern

There seems ism
little support c. w. Harder
for such a move at (his time.
* * *
But perhaps by far the most
interesting proposal to solve the
problem is contained in a bill
introduced into Congress by
Rep. James O'Hara of Michi-
gan. He would make it a law
that overtime must be paid for
at double time instead of time
and a naif.
:j« He $
The premise is that if such
a provision were made law,
employers would hire addition-
al people rather th.in pay such
a premium for overtime.
♦ * *
This measure appears to be,
in the language of Madison
Avenue, a "switch' on the em-
ployment policies put into af-
fect in Italy by the late Benito
Mussolini. Faced with hordes
of unemployed, his Facisti gov-
ernment went to all employers
and arbitrarily told them how
many additional people they
had to put on the payroll.
# ♦ *
And even though II Duce
started his ill-starred political
career as a Socialistic editor,
he kept the Italian wages
among the lowest in the world.
He also made it a jail offense
for any Italian capital to he
kept in foreign investments.
* * *
And it is perhaps a sad com-
mentary on the American econ-
omic plight today that employ-
ers find it costs less to pay
time and a half for overtime
than hire more people.
Yet any employer, faced with
the necessity of making sub-
stantal contributions to federal
and state welfare programs
with each new employee hired,
plus making contributions to
various union-enforced "fringe"
benefits, finds that it is cheap-
er to pay time and a half. This
doe;; not take into account the
extra clerical and accou..1 ng
work to Keep records for [gov-
ernment involved in hiring
* * *
The entire system lias now
been set up to the point where
hiring of new people is under-
taken only as a last resort.
* * *
And 410 matter how humane
Rep. O'llara's motives arc in
seeking to alleviate the plight of
the unemployed, means sought
promise little improvement.
* * *
There is a most basic prin-
ciple involved. More jobs de-
pend on more employers. And
new employers are only creat-
ed when the independent entre-
preneur feels he has a chance
of success in some undertaking.
• * * ♦
But taxation policies, welfare
programs, union regulations,
low cost imports from cheap
labor foreign nations, and ruth-
less illegal competiive tactics
by monopoly minded corpora-
tions have destroyed the con-
fidence needed to start new
enterprises. And until such
tme as confidence is restored,
unemployment will continue

Electric Heating in 900 sq. foot home!
■ "I like my electric heating because
it holds the same even temperature —
even at night", says Mrs. Q. L. Hames
of Crosbyton. Mr. Hames, a retired
contractor, converted his woodworking
shop into a line home of 900 square
feet. He added storm doors and win-
dows as well as insulation to bring his
home up to modern standards installing
electric heating at the same time. The
Haines moved into their home in
December of 1959 and the joy of elec-
tric comfort heating has been theirs
every winter since then.
