Little Jerry Waugh, son of Mr. and Mrs. Lee Waugh suffered a painful accident last week when he mutilated the end of a finger Babson's Statement ]BABSON DISCUSSES POLITICS Babson Park, Fla., Mar. 15.~ ~v'ith an "acc'ident" for Presi- dent, "old chums" for Cabinet Officers and a Congress looking only for w)tes, our political situ- ation appears very bad. My Demo- cratic friends say tllat conditions really are no worse than in the 10ast, They claim our pessimb.~n iS due tO the r~dio; with it~ *'~ews" and co/nn]entato]'s, (which the newspapers have been forr:ed! to imitate) which serves as a great magnifying glass to make these evils look bigger than they really are. AMERICA PEOPLE .ARE SOUND Many people believe that we are in an unfortunate era of an in- evitable social and economic cy- Cle. They believe that an attempt to stop it is like trying to "brush ~back the ocean with a broom". ~Phey believe it much better to wait until the tide naturally turves back to conservatism as it sometime surely will I cannot agree with this do-nothing phil- @sophy. I believe we all should fearlessly fight for what is right however much we may tempor- arily suffer. I believe that this Country and the entire world could be saved from much grief by one simple thing. This would be for the conservative Democrats of the South and the conserve- tire Republicans of the North to combine into one party. It is true that our political leadership is very bad. This is why a few labor leaders are able to ,bully courts, Congress and the 1people into doing what is unjust and unsound. But the majority of the American voters are still wtse and unselfish. They lack only the a,bllttT to express themselves due to the queer mix-up of both par- ties. If voters were able to forget the labels "Republican" and "Democrat" and could choose be- tween "New Deal" and "Anti- New Deal" there is no doubt as to what would happen. Once more 'we would have a safe representa- tive government as the founders of our country planned. LET US BE PREPARED In the meantime, it may be well to be forearmed and to diversify our forms of security. I believe in life insurance, for instance, but a life insurance policy will not give me food, clothing and shel- ter when no~e of these things are available. Hence, every large .city family, who can afford it, should have a small productive place somewhere outside tile city. Moreover, until most city families have such refuges, strikes will continue to grow more severe. They cannot be prevented by law. Only when families become inde- pendent of city eonve~iences, will the labor unto,as come to their SCllSeS, I an] especially intcresled in lb(~ Dossibilities of home ]'(:,fri,~er- ati{m of {'ood supplies. If we could be sure that our electric power wmfid never be turned off, I would recommend that every fam- ily buy a home-freezer and join a ro]nnHlnity cooperative freez- ink association. On the other ham lhe more we depend on thes, homo freezers, the more we are subject to the control of labor unlo,ns and politicians. Hence, those of us who use home-freezers should have them supplemented by a good supply of canned foods. FAVORS THE SOUTH I wish that every family could have a refuge in Florida, Cali- fornia, Arizona, or some other Southern state This would im- mediately eliminate the fuel haz- ard from which northern cities throughout the world are suffer- ing today. Moreover, with a flow- ing well or irrigation, food can be raised in the southern states every month of the year. In fact, the food, clothltag and shelter problem is largely solved by hay- ira a place in a warm section of the country. I am not fearful of immediate trouble, but we should "insure" our investments against the pos- sibility that they may, for a time, be of no use in supplying us with food, clothing and shelter. We buy fire insurance when we do not expect a fire! Certainly, the chances of a revolution within this country some time are equal to the chances that your individ- ual house will burn down. Hence, why not equally insure for both hazards? This does not mean that one should now sell stocks. Money in good common stocks is prob- ably safer than money in the ,bank. It" surely mamas "hope for the .best, but prepare for the worst." ...... X John D. Scaly, owner of the Seely Mercantile Co. was i~ Sun-i dance Tuesday on business.
