Foreign circles had interpreted Erkko a speech wednesday night As conciliatory in tone and foresaw an parly settlement of the russian requests but the pravda article used the strongest language yet employed publicly in the four week negotiations. Citing the fact that Estonia Latvia and Lithuania already had signed Mutual assistance pacts with Russia. Pravda said attempts to deny the Mutual advantages of these agreements for ail their signatories Are made Only by their common enemies interested in fomenting War not Only in Western but in Eastern Europe As Well particularly on the Baltic Nati Kai Phe Nomen \ it said that a naturally the government of the u.

A it is sufficient to glance at the map of Finland to Realise that the problems of Security of the u. S. S. Are especially acute on the finnish Border.

New town Hall Scotland neck nov. 3. A aft a new $20,000 town Hall has been opened Here. Charles Goodyear accidentally discovered the process of Vulcanizing Ruber when he carelessly let a piece of rubber come in Contact with a hot stove. The discovery was made in 1839, although Goodyear had been working with rubber for years trying to devise a process for curing it. Some administration quarters predict that foreign orders chiefly from great Britain and France will total $1,000,000,000 within a few weeks. Under the Bill a Quot Cash and carry system foreign governments May take title to the goods before they leave american docks where Many supplies now Are piled. They must be transported in foreign ships for a major purpose of the legislation is to avoid a a incidents by keeping american vessels and passengers out of War /.ones. Greater margins yesterdays House voting brought greater margins for the administration than even its lieutenants had expected. Three Roll Calls capped a stirring session that saw speaker Bankhead leave his Rostrum to make an unusual plea for lifting the four year old embargo. He received a tremendous ovation from democrats and republicans alike. With galleries packed and Many senators on hand opponents also brought up their leading orators to advise against taking a step which they contended would bring the United states nearer to War. To worry about Washington Ami taxes business men should be concerned about commodity prices. Both the big labor parties have had their annual conventions recently. The spotlight at each was trained directly on living costs under War conditions. If prices Are increased too much we May easily kill a the Goose which lays the Golden i belong too percent to the school which teaches that Prosperity comes from free markets for raw materials manufactured goods labor wages and Money rates. Anything which artificially holds up prices wages or Loans retards Prosperity and adds to unemployment. On let it was believed that appendicitis could be cured by putting on hot water bottles but they did not Wor. Then the doctors tried ice bags but they were not effective. The inflammation was still there. It was finally found that appendicitis can be cured Only As the appendix is removed. Some Day the people of North american will learn that Only As the restrictions on wages hours and banking Are removed will people go Back to work. An Adaes rectally vulnerable i do not visualize a run away commodity Market like that in the world Vaar when the manufacturers were completely in the Saddle. Yet All signs Point to higher prices. Only a few Days ago the fair i Abor standards act aet up a new wage and hour schedule for Industrial and office workers. The minimum wage went up from 25 cents to 30 cent an hour and Tbs minimum work week dropped from 4 4 to 4 2 hours. This is sure to increase prices and thereby result in More people out of jobs. Any business Man who fails to watch prices and Cost carefully will be licked if the War is a Long one. Employer and Farmers will have no alternative hut to hike their prices. Business men do not stand a Chance of Burking Trade associations and labor unions. Organized groups a in a position to take advantage of War conditions. They May skim the Cream off profits leaving the Public a holding the if there is any statesmanship in Washington however an attempt will be made to prevent this. A postwar panic will help no one from present signs such a Panie seems probable some Day especially in Canada. Shortage of skilled labor another Price Factor under War time conditions is the Supply of skilled labor. A shortage already exists in certain industries which Are operating at All time peaks such As aviation manufacturing machine tool and machinery. By shortage i mean that the competent skilled workers have been ail snapped up. These companies Are now digging Down into the Bottom of the labor barrel and Are being forced to take on inadequately trained workers. This would be a very serious situation if the United states were involved in a War. These three industries Are the Backbone of our army and our Navy. One of the reasons Why a shortage of skilled men is developing is because of Union rules. Unions in the past few years have refused to take on apprentice in their grades they have done this to Steep Down the available Supply of trained men and thus artificially to Peg their pay. In fact the government is becoming so worried Over this condition that it is asking big industries voluntarily to take on capable Young men for training. The restrictions on apprentices should he removed. Government Warsh labor a utri hts just As some years ago the government said to the utilities a if you refuse to rut rates we will go into Competition with you a the government is now saying to the unions a if you intend to monopolize labor in your Trade we will Foster this is a very hopeful sign. War or peace we cannot have any lasting Prosperity in America of costs both for labor and materials keep going up. We improve our Standard of living by lowering not increasing a costs what does All tills mean to Consumers it Means that a Long War would boost your Cost of living substantially. You would have to pay higher prices for nearly everything you buy. Keep tills in the Hack of your mind. However now is not the time to get panic stricken and Lay in supplies of flour sugar and the like. Our warehouses Are bulging with them. There will be plenty of Opportunity to do this when we know More shout the War. For the time being go about your business and Home purchasing in a Normal Way just As you would of there were no War f i a in Foo Thali Carolina is.
