Our Country Right or Wrong
Marvina Lindsay, columnist of The Wash-
ington Post, doesn't mince words in the dis-
cussion of teacher shortages this'year. Says
"Communties, faced with their closed or
overcrowded schoolrooms, their substandard
teachers, will at last have to take stock of
themselves. What are they 'sacrificing' for
the schooling of their children? About 1.4 per
cent of the national income-while Great Brit-
ain spends 2 per cent, Soviet Russia around 13
per cent. For what are their state treasuries
-now generally solvent-exspending funds?
Roads first, then public health, then education.
"What are they doing to attract teachers?
Paying them less than the garage mechanics
who take care of their cars. Making drudges
out of them in community chores. Letting el-
derly school boards and nosey Mrs. Grundys
direct their social life, failing to show them
the appreciation and honor for which their
souls are starving.'
"The basis of solving the teacher problem
lies in shocking- Americans into realizing the
national peril of shortchanging educationally
today's children. They need to see that the.
teaching task is so important that superlien
and superwomen should be developed to
It now comes out that army dentists pulled

'Butter, butter, who's got the but-
ter? Seems to be no par-
ticular limit on it when any of
6our local grocery stores get in a
few pounds. Checking on the price
we find that Store A gets 92c per
pound, Store B 98c, Store C $1.00,
and Store D 85.c. Perhaps
that 85-cent butter isn't up to the
butterfat content of the $1.00 per
pound product, but a buck a pound
for butter! Wow!, And it is
quite peculiar, but when there's
butter on the market the oleomar-
garine disappears. Of course, oleo
will keep longer than butter .
Harry Saunders, relaxing iu the
sulphurous fumes of the mineral-
'baths at Hot Sprinks, Ark., writes
and encloses a telephone call slip,
saying: "I have heard various tele-
;phone'girls pronounce it in many
and varied ways, but I think the
attached takes the prize insofar
as spelling 'Apalachicola" is con-
cerned." .. And here's the
way the phone girl spelled it: "A'.-

perhaps some of our Florida phone
gals would get mixed' up on spell-

PLENTY OF RED TAPE
In report No. 10, 78th congress, of a com-
mittee headed by then Senator Truman, this
observation was made: "It is the job of gov-
ernment to devise rules of the road, but not
to tell the driver where he must travel."
That principle is as sound now as on the
day some years ago when it was written. The
whole system. of democratic government de-
pends upon government being an umpire, not
a player in the game. But it is apparent to
anyone that government has moved away
from that principle and has made itself player
as well as umpire.
The agonizing delays in reconversion to
peacetime production are largely 'the conse-
quence of too much government. Anyone in
Port St. Joe, or anywhere else, who has tried
to start a business, build a home, or buy a
piece of war surplus equipment knows what
happens. The red tape is in abudance and
everything else is scarce.
NOT FOR QUITTERS
John Wanamaker, one of America's most
famous and successful business men, is
credited with this sound advice:
"If there is one enterprise on earth that a
quitter should leave alone, it is advertising.
Advertising does not jerk-it pulls. It begins
very gently at first, but the pull is steady. It
increases day by day and year by year until
it exerts an irresistible power."
Collections of federal excise taxes on motor
cars, tires, radios, sporting goods, refrigera-
tors, theater tickets, night club checks, busi-
ness machines. and scores of other items, are
showing a marked increase, which points to a
flourishing state of business. VWill somebody
kindly impart this information to the droopy

ket?-Kansas City Star.
