Against 130 million potential en-
tries in a race the winner must be
pretty good — excellent, in fact.
That’s why occasional winners in
America’s business competition
have been so distinguished. Out of
130 million, they were best in their
line. Nobody is barred from com-
petition in America. Anybody can
take part who feels fit and has the
Enterprise has been free here
since 1778. Education was free in
some parts of the country even ear-
lier than that. By keeping the doors
to competition wide open; by equal-
izing, as far as possible, opportu-
nities to qualify for the game, Uncle
Sam has managed to discover his
most competent people automatical-
ly and quickly. Besides, he keeps
the sport attractive by rewarding
..uwei i quite lavishly sometimes.
Theorists Are Busy
Touting tor government supervi-
sion of industry, go\A>rnment owner-
ship of just about everything, has
grown to epidemic size in the last
year. With military victory near in
the European war theatre, tantahz-
-ngly near, perhaps America's
fnemies think they must overthrow
democracy by trickery if at all.
Critics of America’s government-
al and economic system always
make a lot of noise about inequali-
ties they observe in ihe rewards of
competitive business. Their strate-
gy is to point out abuses of Private
Enterprise rather than its normal
results. This serves to throw a
better light on whatever novelty they
may Le recommending for use
“After Democracy fails” — usually
some embroidered version of Social-
The Best Ever
Practical and patriotic people
never have claimed that America's
competitive system was without de-
fect. If it had been perfect there
would have been no need for rules
to regulate it. Yet, wherever com-
petition has existed, in America or
elsewhere, recently or long ago, it
has been necessary to enact laws
forbidding the strong, the shrewd,
and the rich from taking advantage
of the weak, the trusting, and the
poor. A nation that deserves liberty
is capable of restraint.
Law’s do not make everything
right. Some injustices occur in
spite of law. With the Ten Com-
mandments still imperfectly en-
forced we can’t expect too much of
the Sherman Law. Just the same,
both are needed, and Private Enter-
prise, judged, faults-and-all, by re-
sults to humanity, is still the most
successful economic system on rec-
ord. On the other hand, all the
fancy forms of Socialism proposed
in Arfierica have been tried else-
where and failed.
Proved in Service
Inventors, mechanical engineers,
and fabricators of machinery have
a handy language. They often sug-
gest, concerning a new machine,
“Put it in service and work the bugs
out of it.” They mean: find and
correct its defects. Nothing is so
useful in this regard as actual ex-
perience—a field test for a combine,
a road test for a truck.
Private Enterprise is far ad-
vanced in this process. It has been
used well by an intelligent watchful
people, able to find defects and cor-
rect them. Beginning all over to
“work the bugs dut” of some new
governmental system would be
downright folly: It never has
worked. Discarding a system (po-
litical or economic because of im-
perfections, after it has made
America the world's leading nation,
is like scrapping a s: ed hoot that
never lost a race and setting forth
on a raft-.

That old Question ot whsthsr
not to vaccinate calves brad frans f
negative stock is again prosing »
problem to farmers. Ons
an believes the farmer should
well enough alone if the herd is fran
of Bang’s disease. Another will con-
tend that negative adult cows m
all the more susceptible to *“*—
tion, particularly first-call,
nated heifers. 1
Vaccination of calves by the un-
trained is not the answer to tkr
problem. Here are some fresh an-
gles and rules for control of Bang’s
disease in the herd.
1. Calfhood vaccination should al-
ways be combined with a planned
program of blood-testing mature
J breeding stock.
i 2. Every calf should be property
identified by a tattoo, brand, or dis-
tinctive earmark and carry a veteri-
narian's certificate of vaccination
before being offered for sale. Other-
wise a positive blood reaction due ts<
vaccine may be confused with a re-
action due to natural infection.
3. All vaccinated calves should be
blood-tested within 30 days, and any <
negative calves should be revaccs-4
4. All new additions to a herd
should be bought subject to a blood’
test anjl even the negative should
be Well isolated from other cattle;,
until a subsequent blood test prove*
negative. - 1
5. Eliminate guesswork about anyi
genital disorder in cattle by consult- j
ing a properly trained veterinarian.
Varied Uses of Peanuts
Makes Them Important
The varied uses of peanut prod-
ucts is not an entirely new or war (
project. For years scientists in the 4
southern states have been experv j|
menting to find uses for the by- >'
products of the peanut industry
Soybean flour has now found a ,
rival. Production of peanut flour ha* >
reached the stage of small-scale di»- ^
tribution. It contains four times h
more protein than white flour, ei^dt^
timt i as much fat and nine time*;
as much minerals. Like soybean
flour it can be blended with wheat (
flour to make muffins and mixed:
with various kinds of meat loaves,
In addition to cooking, peanut «1»
is now being used in medicines, anti- >
freeze and in explosives.
A new fabric, made from the pm- .
tein of peanuts has been perfected- \
Adhesives have resulted from re-
search work with peanuts. The shells '.
have been used for bedding, ferO-1
lizer and promises to become im-
portant in the manufacture of a«
pressed wallboard. Various pa ml*,
were also developed from the
nut. The fabric made from
protein is said to be equal to as
superior to soybean and casein fibei*. j
The peanut oil is comparable to ot- ;
ive oil and usable in mayonnaise aatt j
salad dressings and as a substitute j
for fats including cocoa butter and
other butter substitutes.
Present day telephone advertise-)
ments call upon the public to
mize the use of the telephone, using,
only for essential business or In sm-
emergency. This is a far different'
type of advertisement than used •
when telephones were first intm-r
duced. In 1877 the first telephcme
advertisement appeared as foliowm:.
“The Proprietors of the Telephone^
the invention of Alexander Graham:
Bell, are now prepared to furnish
Telephones for the transmission ef^
articulate speech through instrw-i
ments not more than 20 miles apart.
Conversation can be easily carried-
| on after slight practice, and with
| the occasional repetition of a word'
j or sentence. On fir<-t listening to thw
l Telephone, though the sound is pe**-
fectly audible, the articulation seems
to be indistinct; but after a fens'
trials, Xhe car becomes accus-
' tomed to the peculiar sound and
Finds little difficulty in understand-
ing the words.”

Shampooing the hair at home '»•
no small job, if>it is to be really ef-

long been considered the touch to

slightly in proportions. Heat from
four to six eggr. add two teaspoon*

thoroughly before washing. Shampoo
with the egg mixture and rinse with
tepid water Rinse thoroughly, and
dry in the sun if possible. Those
who have the rays for drying hair
