I am going to tell you about a horse named Webster. In 1905 I went to work in a sawmill (this mill was located on Sand Creek 7 miles south of Beulah) for the fellow that owned this horse. Be- fore I went to work there this horse and his mate ran away and tore up the buggy. Then they hooked this team onto a log truck and went to gather up what was left of the buggy. On the way home they run away and tore up the log truck. Well, that was enough. He turned old Webster out with the wild bunch, and this is where I come into the picture. It was Sunday and one of the boys run in a bunch of horses, Old Webster in the bunch. The idea was they wanted to see me ride old Webster, and I bit. Well, I step- ped in his middle and he blew up. I had, in fact I still have that watch. The second jump he made my watch come out of my pocket. I got ahold of it and shoved it in the top of my pants. Well, the outcome of that ride, Old Webster bucked onto a bridge and fell with me and I had two broken fingers and my watch went to Chicago for repairs. A fellow we called Dutch Joe was there and he wanted to ride Old Webster too. So he got on him and the old boy headed for the bridge where he had unloaded me and unloaded Joe in the creek in two feet of water and then miss- ed the bridge himself and went in on top of Joe. We fished Joe out, skinned up some but not hurt too bad. I rode'Old Webster that summer and then Joe came back that Fall and bought him and took him to Canada. So Long to an old horse who had a lot of fun and loved every minute of it.

Den i Wins Exposition Prize Den No. 1 of the Cub Scouts rep- resented Sundance Boy Scout Troop No. 62 at the Rapid City Exposition and returned with third prize in the handicraft division. The den is led by Mrs. Richard Hooper. Model planes, boats, cars and copper plaques were exhibited by the den members. Cub Scouts taken to the exposi- tion by Mrs. Hooper were Allen Vines, Ronnie Carr, J. R. Stech and David Hooper. Cecil and Henry Cundy, two other members, were taken by Mr. and Mrs. Dick Proctor. Proctor is the Cub Scout representative for the Odd Fellows lodge. Mr. and Mrs. Henry Pickerd and Howard of Aladdin were Sunday guests of Mr. and Mrs. L. M. Lor- enzen and family. Betty Pickerd was also a supper guest. MOTIVE POWER FOR PROGRESS The American economic system gives natural laws freedom to work in their natural way. The motive power in the system is supplied by man's natural desire for rewards --- or profits -- in all his under- takings. This is a fundamental hu- man desire. When it is multiplied by the number of people in Ameri. ca it is a powerful force, produc- ing great volumes of goods and services. By permitting this pro- fit motive a great degree of free- dom, the American system is tap. ping the brain-power and the en- ergy-power of all its people. A 12-year-old boy doesn't like to mow the lawn at home --- for free. But let the next door neigh- bor offer $2.50 for a lawn-mowing job, and the 12-year-old suddenly finds joy in mowing that lawn. Giv- en enough lawns to mow, at $2.50 each, he will spend the entire sum- mer working without complaint. And the money he earns comes from somebody else's exercise of the profit motive. The man next door may be a carpenter, a manu- facturer, or a lathe operator in the local wood-working plant; what- ever his occupation, his brain- power and energy-power are dri- ven by the human desire for re- wards, where he is earning so much he can't afford to mow his own lawn. Other Systems Advocated The opponents of the American profit-and-loss system are advocates of some form of Socialism -- whe- ther it be the Soviet-type Commu- nism, the Swedish-type "Welfare State," or the present English-style "Conservative - Socialism." The irony is that after 40 years of operation, the Soviet-type Commu- nism has produced a living stan- dard only one-tenth as high as ours; in the so-called Swedish "Welfare State," the living stan- dard is about one-third as high as ours; and in Englan'd where "na- tionalization" of basic industries has operated 12 years, the living standard is not quite half as good as ours. The people who are determined to change the American system fundamentally, center their subtle and direct attacks on corporation or business profits -- trying to make people believe they are un- reasonable and that, therefore, the system is not good. To intelligent- ly understand such propaganda, and thus reject it, we should ex- amine some facts about business profits. Profit Facts In the last year for which we have the official Commerce De- partment statistics, the national in- come was approximately 300-bil- lion dollars. The net profit of all t h e corporations in America amounted to 5.9 percent of this total income, or about $17.8 bil- lion. Approximately 30 percent of the remainder of the national income, or $90 billion was paid into the various governmental units in taxes. That left $192 bil- lion going to individual citizens in personal income. And what about the corporation profits; where did they go? Three and three-tenths, or $9.9 billion, was paid directly to the stock. holders -- more than 12,000,000 people, most of them small town residents earning less than $7,500 a year. The other 2.9 percent of the profit was ploughed back into the business -- to buy new ma- chines, to pay for research, to de- velop new production methods and new products, to expand plants, to help build new plants, and to make new and better jobs. On Sales Dollar There is another way to measure corporation profits -- on the sales dollar. In the last year for which we have official figures, the an- nual corporation sales in America totalled $508 billion. In spite of the _belief of some people ( and the propaganda) that profits run 12, 15, 25 and 50 percent -- the fact is that the profit on this $508 bil- lion in sales amounted to 3.3 per- cent. On my desk is a recent annual report of a big packing company, showing the breakdown on its sales dollar: 73.2 cents of each dollar was paid for raw materials -- cat- tle, hogs, sheep; 13.1 cents was paid to employees in wages, salaries and benefits; 2.6 cents went for ship- ping costs; 5 cents for supplies, chemicals, packaging, 1.3 cents for taxes; 4 cents for plant mainten- ance and other necessary services for doing business. That left in net profit, eight-tenths of one cent on each sales dollar! And a sub- stantial part of this went back into the business, to make better- products, and more jobs. The alternative to the profit sys- tem is Socialism -- with its loss of freedom and drastically lower living standard. We should all understand these and other facts about our profit system --- and be strongly for it. (Feb. 14) Pythian Sisters held their regu- lar meeting Tuesday evening with 16 members present.
