forests and other raw resources to ab

comparatively speedy recovery follow
ing our business slumps.
Today there are no more good farm
lands unappropriated. The output oi
the mines is already greater than we
can absorb. There is no use to fine
and open more. Without new domes
tic and foreign markets our lumbering
operations can not proceed. The sup

more than we need.
Oyer production on the part of those
who turn out the finished product, be

is the missing link in the chain of dis
Thepnswer is obvious. Money does
not circulate. It stagnates in bank
vaults and treasuries- The general
public that creates all markets do not
have access to it and consequently can
not buy. Banks cannot loan to people
who have no security nor to factories
that have no market for their goods.
Banks lose money. They have no in
come from loans. Thus the vicious
round of stagnation is made complete.
Buying power must be restored to
the general public before this dead
lock can be broken. Throwing out
gigantic scoopfuls of money from the
national treasury into spots where
destitution seems most intense is but
to temporize with the emergency. A
system of circulating money must be
set up. Dependable legal machinery
must be devised that will keep the
money circulating after it is set going

passage of a national law that will

who has attained the age of sixty
years or over and who is not an ha

receive a pension of $200 per month

multaneously, it demands a law es
tablishing a Federal retail sales tax
calculated at a rate (low on necessities
ihigh on luxuries) just sufficient to
raise the money necessary for the pen
sion roll. These two simple legisla
tive acts, the one providing for the
collection of the money from the re
tailers of the nation at the end of
every month, calculated on their gross
sales, the other providing for the dis
tribution of the money back into the
channels of trade through the hands
! of the old folks, will obviously start
the money stream and keep it flowing
with an almost constant rate, since our
population is now practically fixed as
There are ten million three hundred
thousand people of the age of 60 and
beyond, eight million of whom, at
least, might be expected to apply for
the pension. Many, eligible as to age,
would not apply because of the de
mand for their continued services in
posts of importance. Many of the
millions are not citizens. If eight
million of those of the required age
should apply it would require the cir
culation of one billion six hundred mil
lion dollars into the channels of trade
monthy. This would immediately start
a tremendous volume of buying. We
have skimped and done without for
four years. Retailers would soon be
sold olt. Wholesalers would be called
upon to restock their shelves. They
in turn would call upon 'the manufac
turers for a new output. All machin
ery of production would be started at
high speed. Workers would be called
to man the machines and to distribute
the goods. Jobs would again be
come plentiful, made so by an intense
prosperity and the elimination of the
sixty-year-olds from the job-seeking
field. Wages would be high. The
standard of living advanced to the ap
proximate level of the pay received
by the retiring elders.
No argument against the amount
demanded for the pension can be ad
vanced that will stand analysis.
These elderly people have been instru
mental in producing practically all the
tangible wealth in evidence today.
They are entitled to the use of a por
tion of it sufficient to maintain them
in comfortable circumstances for the
remainder of their lives. Use of the
money is all that they would ask, all
that they could have. Passing through
their hands, it would supply their
needs and return at once to the local
ities from whence it was collected.
This steady flow of money would as
sure business stability, eliminates fear
as a factor against the launching of
new works and enterprises and give
assurance of ample opportunity to the
rising generation of the young.
Cost and the necessity for raising
prices to meet the pension roll would
be practically eliminated by the wip
ing out of the expense of organized
charity and much of the expense of
criminality. Riches undreamed of
would accrue to the nation through
utilizing the wisdom and experience of
the elders and their helpful activities
in art, science and sociology. And
finally, the true riches of humanity,
joy and happiness, would displace
those debasing emotions of greed, sus
picion, fear and despair.

not wait to be thrown out—and
he was unwilling to be a figure

King of Italy, for example. Par
jadipok showed self-respect and
superb shrewdness by getting out.
But, alas he could not save oth
er members of his family from the
fate from which he rescued him
self. His little nephew. 11-year
old Prince Ananda, had the posi
tion wished on him. A friend
of mine wrote: “Royalty is cer
tainly in need of some sort of
Child Labor Law to protect the
little royal children from this
ruthless exploitation.” True
enough ; this bright-eyed little
bright-eyed little brown boy now
has his entire future hampered,
circumscribed and mostly cut-out
by being a “king’' before he was
able to learn to defend himself.
’When he grows up it is not likely
that he will have the independ
: nice and sheer guts of his little
i browui uncle who ran out on his
royal jailors and oppressors.
Starting with a lad so young,
hey may train him to submit to
almost anything. By the time he
becomes 50 years old, he may be
as impotent and helpless as the
King of Italy, or as useless an
ornament as King George of Eng
Li.tie Michael, of Boumania, i
was saved from a like fate by the
fact that his good-time father de
cided to come back home and res
cue his son, by taking up ihe
burden himself/ That is at least'
one thing to the credit of King
Carol; he did the part of a father
by that little boy.
But there is ihe present boy
king of Jugoslavia, who had the
thing forced on him by the mur
derers of his royal father, who
was on avisit to France. If they
had not executed or killed the as
sassins for anything else .they
might well have eonvincted them
for what they did to this lntle
child. The lad was in school in
England at the time, having a
normal boy’s life, with the pros
pects of growing up into a normal
man, before being forced into the
royal straight-jacket But the
bullets which ended the career of
the real bread-winner of the fami
ly. took away this 'ad’s future
and condemned him to the Jugo
slavian royal orphanage.
Certainly some law ought to be
enacted to protect these royal
children; poor little things!

Much of this demand must come
from the south. The southerners
in congress are afraid of their '
lynching consti uents, and Presi
dent Roosevelt is afraid of the
Southerners in Congress, lest they !
further embarass his already em
barassed New Deal. They are
likely to sacrifice the Negro to
the great lynching vote of the •
South, and to the disreputable i
American patriots ought to
realize that the very salvation of '
the Republic demands the cessa- '
tion of mob violence in depres- !

now may start along the color 1
line, but they pretty soon jump 1
over that line and take to plain 1
loot. That Harlem mob of Ne-j^
groes showed the true menace of :
mobs how they smarted out to 1
avenge the beating, and they
thought, the murder of a colored
dal; but they took immediately
to looting. These are hungry
times. Any excuse now will serve

Wisely pursued, strengthening

Your letters reveal that you are

you that there is no need for alarm,
rhe symptoms you give indicate that
you have reached the first turning
point in the life of womanhood, it
is the beginning of the springtime of
human life called adolescence, or
youth. As seasonal changes in the
earth cause certain disturbances in the
elements, so it is in our physical na
tures . But they are necessary accord
ing to God’s plans. The whys of
these we cannot understand but we do
know that they are necessary to pre
pare for certain human functions
which underlie all physical life.
Now, I am writing to Aunt Cornelia
asking her to make full explanation of
the matter as I cannot do in writing.
Follow her advice and take good care
of yourself. I would add that while
there is no need for alarm, your fut
ure health and happiness depend on
the proper care at this time, there

I am glad you follow the advice to
