Mason City Globe-Gazette (Newspaper) - February 25, 1946, Mason City, Iowa DEPARTMENT OF NORTH IOWAS DAILY PAPER EDITED FOR THE HOME H United Press FuU Leased SVlr THE NEWSPAPER THAT MAKES AVL NORTH IOWANS NEIGHBORS One Mans Opinion A Radio Commentary by W EARL HALL Managing Editor BROADCAST SCHEDULE nattt Friday p m KSCJ Sioux City SHurdr p TAD qufney 111 Sulurdy 9 p m Some Comments on the Passing Show TN this commentary Id just lik A to visit with you about som of the news items I see in th issue of my own daily newspape spread out before me How man subjects I touch on will be deter mined by how fully I deal wit each The news item most prom uiently displayed on the fron Page is drawn from the Indus Irial front It deals with strikes settled and strikes threatened Th effect of it is to dampen the hopes of those who felt that the recen settlement of the steel tieup woul provide a pattern for settling o averting other strikes While nobody could have lower estimate of the strike o lockout as a weapon for re solving differences in our indus trial economy Im not allowin myself to become as downcas over the future as some of mj friends Im trying to take th longrange view of the situation And what is that longrang view TTS that were now in the pro cess of establishing a wag structure in which the dollar in come of the worker by and large wJl be substantially what it wa during the period of greatly ac celerated war production And thats an understandable objectiveOur nation is confronted with an indebtedness which by July of this year will touch the 275 billion dollar mark Thats an enormous debt load in anybodys than 5 times as grea as we thought 15 years ago we couid possibly bear If that indebtedness is to be paid off rather than repudiated theres going to have to be a con tinuing level of dollar in come And out of that continuing hiffh level of dollar income theres going to have to be a tremendous income through taxes for Uncle Sam The best guess is that servicing the debtwill call for somewhere between 5 and 6 billion dollars annually Along with that there must be ah orderly reduction of principal For servicing and retir ing our debt were going to need upwards of 10 billion dollars a year for the next 25 years Thats why Im sympathetic with the union demands for in creased hourly wage rates which will keep the national dollar in come at a high level Its abso lutely essential if were to meet our debt problem in the tradi tional American way VES dollar income is an im portant factor in the American economy But it isnt the MOST important Transcending it and by far in the longrange look is the value of the dollar in terms of what it will buy Obviously it isnt any bargain for the individual worker to re ceive an 1811 cents an hour in crease in his paycheck only to discover that the cost of the things lie must have to live and enjoy life have Bone up 30 or 40 or 50 per cent That prong of the prob lem has had too liftle attention Americas one hope for a pros perous future lies in increased production It must be a balanced production oE course and it must be a production which in so far as possible conserves the nations natural resources Increased pro duction of meats and cereals for example must not be at the ex pense of soil fertility A FUNDAMENTAL law of eco nomics is operative in this whole matter With a limited sup ply of a desired commodity dol lars bid against each other for its acquisition Its the old law of supply and demand By artificial devices such as OPA ceilings we can condition this law to ttie needs of the hour over the swing of years the law of supply and demand is as inexorable as the law of gravity The fact which must be driven into our thinking is that true wealth is in things not dollars You cant eat either silver or gold and paper isnt particularly pal atable TN the abstract our labor leaders grant what Im saying here But by their constant harping on cur tailed production through the me dium of 30 or 35 hour weeks they demonstrate beyond doubt that theyve failed to comprehend the true meaning of maximum pro duction To assume such an attitude is to torn defeatist Its to judge the future by the past whereas we ought to be looking to the possi bilities of and the needs of he future Its to assume a static eco nomy when every argument that can be summoned is for an ex panding economy Never in history have all the people of the world had enough nLJ 5ven their minimum needs That goes for foodstuffs CONTINUED ON PAGE 2 mieht be n might be 30 n COLONEL PERON CASTS BALLOT IN
