iLOST MOTION is an enemy of
Sprosperity, serious as fire. It de
stroys property and wastes ener
gy. Thi3 is just as true in a
human organization as in a me
chanical assembly. Nobody is
richer for employing a crew that
.keeps busy all day and accom
Iplishes nothing. On a farm, for
iexample, work is necessary;
Sweat and callouses are inciden
tals. It’s the crop that brings in
the money and pays the men. .
ft Prosperity results from work
but not from all work. Prosperity
results from productive work.
People who keep busy but don’t
Increase the yield might as well
•be resting. The man who figures
out a way to increase yield with
out extra labor is the best man
on the job. He works with his
brain; knows enough to stop lost
motion, to take precautions
against fire, and the like.
"Policy for * ENGLAND has a
Prosperity magazine called The
pt- -= Economist. It is Brit
ain’s leading financial publication.
It is read and respected by busi
ness men and financiers general
fly. Recently it has been running
ia series of articles entitled “A
'Policy for Wealth.” The articles
•have shown why England is poor;
ithat is, why the English people
must put up with comparatively
low living standards.
j^A large and respected group of
Americans often say “Mother
England.” The British are a
i proud and industrious people and
'the Americans respect them. The
British well understand.. Jiow. to
appreciate life’s good things.
They deserve to live as well as
anybody but they don’t. What’s
the reason? Well, here’s wha$
one writer for The Economistj
looking back at 1943, has to say;
To Double “INDUSTRIAL effi
Production ciency, as measured
by production pei
head, was roughly similar in
Great Britain and Germany whila
in the United States it was more
than twice as great as in th«
other two countries.” The state
ment is that of Dr. Leon Rostas,
based on serious study of authen
tic records. Now there is a move
ment on foot in England tc
double her productive output pei
man by 1972.
*■ No longer ago than 1943, when
America and England both hac
full employment, our America!
workers were twice as well off
They were producing enough tc
live twice as well as the British
About that time Britain was in
vesting only 3% of her income ii
equipment for additional produo
tion. It was like a woodman say
ing, “Why buy a file? A dul
saw pulls easier.” • <*•> —
The British point to Americi'
and say, “Look! They work less
earn more and live better thai
we, all because they encourage
more investment in tools to pro
duce more goods per man.” It’e
the truth but it may not be true
long. Our high taxes discourage
investment. Unless we adjust te>

The life insurance companies of
the United States have never shown
any great inclination to write life
insurance in foreign countries, add
ing that today there are few Ameri

continental limits of the United
States. Several Canadian companies,
however, have a fairly large life in
surance portfolio overseas. In this
connection the countries chosen by
the United States and Canadian com
panies operating in the foreign field
are generally more stable and con
sequently there is less risk of dis

who were the children of father
bluejay and mother bluejay. The
family lived in a little nest at the top
of an old maple tree. One day when
mother and father were hunting for
worms, the three children climbed
on a limb and were going to try to
fly. Now there was one little blue
jay who thought he knew everything,
he stood up straight and quickly
jumped from the limb. Little brother
was hurt badly.
Soon mother and father bluejay
came home. They found their son at
the bottom of the old maple tree.
They picked him up quickly and
flew up to their nest. And then “The
Three Little Bluejays” never tried to
fly without their parents’ permission.

GREAT SURPRISES ANVAIT TOC!
Although everyone knows that
vitamins and minerals are essential
to health, until 1941 about 40 per
cent of all Americans ate a diet
which failed to provide all of these
nutrients they needed. What Ameri- ;
can dietaries lacked chiefly were
some of the B-vitamins and the food
mineral iron, and these nutrients
have been added under the wartime,
Fertilizers are of no value to the
plant unless the soil contains ample
moisture and air. Fertilizers should
not be applied to dry soil; so, dur
ing periods of drouth, artificial
watering should be practiced. On
soils known to be highly acid or de
ficient in calcium this condition
can be corrected by applying agri
cultural ground limestone or hy
drated lime at a rate of 50 to 70
pounds per 1,000 square feet. The
rate of application of lime should ,
be based on soil tests, and lime
should be applied only if analysis
shows it is necessary. j
