MA3VE MTLLETt-—Five years ago
when I was forty-five I married a
girl eghteen. I love her and still
love her. f’ve done1 everything to
make her satisfied, but now, she has
confessed to me that she just cannot
love me. She says she thought she
did at first and she has tried to do
so but could not.
Sometimes I think I’ll let this lit
tle bird go free- I have good prop
erty' and could give her a home and
some money. But «T cannot make up
rxy mind what to do. What would
you do under the circumstances?—
John L.—In the matter of hones
ty, your “little bird” is a rare bird.
The average girl would hold on "to
you for what she could get, double
rc-ss you and get pleasure on the
I; counts little to have a woman’s
body when her heart is elsewhere, so
I’d just open the cage and let hei
ily away. And it would be a great
big' thing to give her a home and
money to save her from, embarrass
ment and humiliation
In about a month — between

AND LIFE INSURANCE
Francis V. Keesling, President,
American Life Convention, re
cently pointed to the important
effect governmental policies have
on the life insurance industry.
A chage in monetary standards,
for example, vitally affects every j
insurance policy outstanding. The
preservation of a sound currency
is essential to the protection of
the millions of Americans who
have thriftily put their savings
Again, regulation and admin
istration of business by govern
ment. is of great interest to the
life insur. industry, even though
it is not touched (Erectly — if
government so restricts business
as to make operation profitless,
return, on these investments must
be reduced or eliminated, and the
■inevitable result of this would be
a decrease in the reserve that pro'
tects policies outstanding and an
increase ’i the cost of a new life
insurance policy. If the industry
could not earn an adequate in
vestmct profit, it would have to
make it up by increasing its
Mr. Kesslng says that he does
not predict the coming of such in
dustrial disasters, but that every
<Kne who owns an insurance pol
icy and everyone connected with
the industry in any way should be
concerned with the present trend
toward sterner governmental
domination of private endeavors.
Those who are today guiding
government should take time out
to remember that the welfare of
the great bulk of the people lies
in permitting all industry to pro
gress and make reasonable profits
—and that any eourse which pre
vents th£s must have as its con
sequence national stultification.
THE CRUSADING SPIRIT
Fred Sexauer, President of the
Dairymen’s League Co-operative
Assn., Inc., recently said that
dairy producers may soon find it
necessary to again bring into play
the crusading sp'irit ■with which
they have attacked their market"
ing problems in the past, and
added: “Organization can do
what the government cannot do
because in government, in party
politics and in public interest
there is no crusading spirit that
will carry a project forward. The
machinery of the state is not ef
fective because 'it cannot be mo"
I bilized and into it cannot be
placed that sprit of the crusader.
That can come only when groups
of people sq thoroughly believe
in what they are doing that the
motivating forces behind them are
which are beneficial not alone to
not selfish, but instead there is
a deep desire to do those things
themselves, but to their neighbors,
their state and. their country.”
In those words, Mr. Sexauer
gives an excellent picture of the
“secret of success” of the farm
cooperative movement. The best
farm co'ops have always been
crusaders; their problems have
changed from year to year as old
ones were settled and* new ones
arose, but the crusading spirit
was never lost. It was shared by j
management and members alike!
—every person connected with
the organization, whatever his ca"
pacity, worked tirelessly, faith
fully and to the utmost in advanc
ing the interests of all concerned.
The crusading spirit that car
ried the comps through five years
of depression is the best asset they
have in meeting the issues of the
formally initiated by proclama
tions by the President, governors
of states, mayors of cities and
other prominent persons in public
and private life.
During the week every citizen
will have a splendid opportunity
to learn the fundamentals of fire
prevention and control. Through
speeches, newspaper and magazine
articles, exhibits and other means,
an intensive effort will be made
to enlist the citizen’s interest. He
can blame no one but himself if
he fails to learn.
b ire prevention is a civic duty
which every c'itizen owes to him
self and to every other person.
We all pay for fire—we pay for
it in lost business, destroyed jobs,
higher taxes and insurance rates.
On the average, each family con
tributes $4.00 a year as a tribute j
to Moloch—dollars which are des
troyed as surely as if we tossed
them into a stove. Worse still,
three people — two adults and a
child—out of each 39,000 of our
population, are sacrificed to the
pagan god—because we are ignor
ant and careless when it comes
In the past, it has often been
the experience that fire losses
dropped during the week and for
a short period thereafter, only to
rise again, as the public gradual
ly forgot the information glean
ed. This year we should look for
ward to the week and devote a
little time during it to really
learning the fundamentals of fire

Li an article in Public Utilities
Fortnightly, George E. oDyling, h4
well, -known writer on utility;
affairs, casts light on the ancient
question of whether or not the
(•American people are seriously
, worried about the cost of electric
\ power. .• -4
(•Tudging by the political MwCs*
1 against'the power companies, one
would think that the cost of power
has the American public staying
awake nights. Mr. Doy’ings’s opin
ion is just the opposite, in prep
erat ion for an article he was writ
ing, he had questionnaires sent to
500 people in 110 cities in 40"
nstates, one of whom were known
to him. The questionnaire usii£il
what their average daily bill was,
what electric rates they paid,
what appliances they used, and
whether they thought they were
paying too much. And the result
w as that exactly 39 people out of
the 500 replied that their electric
gation by Mr. Doying in some of
these cases showed that the com
plainants didn’t even know what
the rate was they were complain
( Thirty nine out of ifve hund
red Is less than eighty percent—
and there s good reason to believe
that the national average would
be about the same. The average
power bill is 9.3 cents a day—un
der $3.00 a month. Contrast that
with the cost of food, clothing,
amusement, tax payments—even
the cost of so small a thing as to
bacco. The American people are
not bothered by the cost, of pow'
er— the politicians, in their end
less search for vote getting issu
es, are smply trying to hypnotize
them into thinking they are.
