r\ ESPITE the fact that the sur-
prising Democratic victory
in the Maine elections was a re-
sounding one, many political ob-
servers are saying that the elec-
tion does not necessarily indicate
what will happen in the general
elections coming up in November.
The candidates in Maine, they
say, were not faced with the ur-
gency of important national issues
to the extent that candidates in
other areas will be in the coming
election. In several key states, for
instance, right-to-work laws ban-
ning compulsory union member-
ship are forefront issues.
In Ohio, industry groups gath-
ered a big fund to get the right-to-
work proposal on the ballot, and
unions are determined to expend
every effort to defeat it.
The election or rejection of form-
er Senate Minority Leader Know-
land in his bid for the governor-
ship of California may well hinge,
observers say, on the right-to-
work plank in his platform.
The right-to-work issue also is
important in Washington, Colora-
do, Idaho and Kansas.
Political observers are more con-
cerned with the outcome of elec-
tions in these states—because the
outcome may shape future labor
legislation and future labor in- j

There could possibly be a short-
age of some items on retail
shelves during the nearer-than-
you-think pre-Christmas selling
Washington economists who tor-
see "temporary" shortages of
some items explain it this way:
Retail stocks of such items as
home furnishings, appliances,
building materials, shoes and
automobiles are running about
the same as they were at this
time last year. The drop in sales
during 1958 has caused retailers
to keep their stock levels down.
Sales are now expected to rise
steadily as the economic uptrend'
picks up momentum. Thus, the
economists say, unless retail or-
ders for inventory picks up soon,
manufacturers may be hard put
to maintain deliveries as pre-
Christmas trade increases.

According to a study by the In-
dustrial Conference Board two-

From The Lincoln Times, Lin-
coln, N.C.: 1. Keep skid chains on
your tongue; always say less than
you think Cultivate a low persua-
sive voice. How you say it often
counts more than what you say.
2. Make promises sparingly and
keep them faithfully, no matter
what it costs you.
3. Never let an opportunity pass
to say a kind or encouraging thing
to or about somebody. Praise good
work done, regardless of who did it
4. Be interested in others, inter-
ested in their pursuits, their wel-
fare, their home and families Make
merry with those who rejoice; with
those that weep, mourn. Let every-
one you meet, however humble,
fee] that you regard him as one
5. Reserve an open mind on all
debatable questions. Discuss, but
don't argue. It is a mark of supe-
rior minds to disagree and yet be
6. Let your virtues, if you have
any, speak for themselve and re-
fuse to talk of another's vices Dis-
7 Be careful of another's feel-
ings. (Wit and humor at the other
fellow's expense is rarely worth
the effort and may hurt where
8. Pay no attention to ill-natured
remarks about you. Simply live so
that nobody will believe them. Dis-
ordered nerves and a bad digestion

From the Chickasha Star, Chiek-
asha,Oklahoma: Various problems
concerning agriculture are widely
and continuously discussed. But
; there's one major problem that we
j don't hear t'noti«h about—and its
! name is fire
The Department of Agriculture
( tells us that fire losses on the na-
I lion's farms have shown an almost
steady increase over the past 18
j years. In that span of time, the
, loss has gone up about two and a
j half times from $64 million in
i 1940 to $152 million last year.
Fire is a menace anywhere. It
, is particularly so on farms. Fire
| protective facilities are often of
limited value, at best, and in many
instances are non-existent or vir-
tually so. When fire strikes, espe-
cially in the hot dry season, the
chance of a total loss is high.
Inflation has brought with it an-
other and related problem. The
house or barn or other structure a
farmer built 20 years ago will cost
twice as much today if it has to
be replaced, and perhaps more.
That goes for equipment and pos-
sessions of practically every kind,
large and small. The consequence
is that farmers—like most of the
rest of us—are under-insured.
Your home-town cannot grow
without your loyalty. Trade at home.
