" When city folks talk as they do the terrible distress and suffering anti so many millicns of their people who have no jobs and no way of feeding cr housing their families, they are talking about something that we who live in the country towns and on the farms on- ly faintly comprehend. It is in tim of general industrial depression like these that we realize how much bet- ter off we are than our city cousins. KEEP YOUR MONEY MOVING One of the reasons why four mil- lion people are out of work in the United States--in fact, almost the only reason--is that too many peo- ple who have money have stopped spending it. In the discussions which led to the formation of the National Credit Corporation, it was estimated that more than a thousand million dollars has been taken out of circu- lation, out of the banks, and hidden away.in safe deposits and mattresses by people who are almost paralyzed by the fear that they are going to lose what they have accumulated. In the ordinary course of business every dollar changes hands seventeen times a year. To take a billion dol- lars out of circulation means a loss of seventeen billion dollars of busi- ness and that, the experts say, is a large enough sum to keep four mil- li0n persons at work. There are much aa,far thins to do with money than to hide it. Money had a great deal of awe of the Inter- ests, and at that period they were indeed pretty powerful. Important corporations were comparatively few, and those few were small in com- parison with today, Their stock was controlled by a compact group of men who, by ing together, could often make or break the market Morgan could+ get them all in a room and tell them what to do. But times have changed. Corpora- tions are enormous; shares are scat- tered among millions. They, the in- terests, are not what they used to be. One time I served on a civic com- mittee, most o;f whose members tary was a bright young COB were bankers. The executive seers- have to worry; when this job is over graduate. He said to me: "I don't these big bankers will take care of'. reef' Well, the job was over, and I told' him: "You are going to have a great shock as to the power of the Inter- national Bankers. They may control millions, but one thing they can't do is to get you a job. They may send you to the heads of certain corpora- tiaras with letters of introduction, but they can't insist that you be hir- ed. Those corporation managers will reply to the bankers, 'You hold us  responsible: you must let us alone'." It turned out as I predicted. The young man finally secured a job, but not by any help of the Interests. I have seen several national elec- tions, but never one in which the partners of any of the big interna- tional banking houses were agreed upon a candidate. Two partners, sitting side by side. would offset each other's votes. In the last analysis, who are they? I'll tell you. You and I are they. We run things. A business may have millions of capital, big plants, and 'huge sales forces. But if you and I is not of the slightest value except do not like its product, all tese l huge assets are merely liabilities. to spend. Hidden away it earns no- Talleyrend said a shrewd thing thing, and if enough of it is hidden iwhe n he remarked, "There is one it actually loses its value, t person wiser than anybody, and that Anybody who is holding currency is everybody." You and I are every- because of fear would be better off+ bdy' and we decide. to invest it in almost anything. A ] hundred dollars inverted in lid-up life insurance policy, or an annty, w.th one of the >ig insurance emm- panics would be afer and more prodaeve than $100 hiddea away. The safest of all ple to lint moo- ey is in improved ral utate. ]E _n m no ommodittes that feel a desire for, and you have mo- ey that is not worki, why not Put it back into el-nfla? Until moot of the hoarded money begins to work again, we are going to continue to have hard times; as soon as this money gets to work, prosperity will cme back almost instmltly. ===...=- WHO ARE THEY? By Bruce Baon A man stopped me on the street to say that he had some important information. "They are going to put the market up in the next few weeks," he "Who are they?" I asked htm. He looked at me scornfully, as though I ought to be ashamed to confess such ignorance- "+hy they", he answered, "are the big shots, the insiders, the inernational bankers, the Intereeta." "Oh," I said, and thanked him and went on my way. Wen I graduated from eolleffe I Mr. Morgan des not awe me. Ev- en the editor of this lper, who is my boss, doe not fill me with any great alarm.

ILLINO'.E ruptcy. I talked the other night with the New York distributor of one of the popula makes of electric refri- gerators. H told me that his com- pany had JUst completed a nation- wide selling competition, in which every+ distributor was given a cer- tain quota of sales as the goal to aim at, and that every one of them had sold nwre refrigerators than he had been asked to sell. My New York friend's organiltior disposed of more than twenty thousand refriger- ators in twenty-one days. + Since the cheapt of these ref:ri- gerators sells for $256, and the av- erage i about $350, that means that the peolle of this one locality spent around $7,00000 for refrigerato in thee so-vlled hard times.
