We would hate to see the next presidential election complicated by the prohibition issue. We think that issues far more vital to the wel_ze of the nation ought to occupy the public mind during the next cam- paign. Prohibition is a question which almost everybody approaches emo- tionally, and which obscures all other questions when it is one of the issues in a political campaign. It seems to us that there is a very simple, practical and effective way of taking prohihitio entirely out of the next presidential eampaign. That is for both Farties, Republican and Democratic alike, in their na- tional conventions next June, to a- dopt a platform plank, agreeing to put through a resolution for a na- tional referendum on prohibition. That would absolutely insure the re- ferendum, because whichever side was victorious would be under a pledge, and neither party would be in a position to Mock  a move for political rmon We d not know o  any inteUigmt drys who think that the sentiment of the country is wet. We know great mny wets who are sure that sentiment would be overwhelmingly against prohibition. The only people who could oppose a referendum are the wets who are afraid tlmt the country might vote dry, and the dr who are afraid that the eountr7 might vote wet. We know this suggesti<m will not appeal to the folks who want to keep the prohibition issue in politics. We offer it just for the reason that we I don't believe prohibition has a pro- I per place in national politics. I :o: i ONE MAN'S GUESS By Bree Msrtoa New York has been so thick with gloom that we have had to carry flash-lights at mid-day. Men talk about "thirty years of bad business" and 'he collapse o the eapitalist system" and '%he end of the gold I. We are compelled to realize that the old-tie insular, nationalis- tic thinking is out of date in a woxld which has been shrunk to a neighbor- hood. No nati@n can prosper unless all nations prosper. Tariffs and re- parations and international jealousies are shackles  trade and means le prosperity for us all. 2. If trade is once freed from these shackles, including the wrst, whi is international suspicon, the future has possibilities beyond our wildest dreams The consumptive power o humanity is unlimited. Even in the most advanced nations tle standard of living is still low. There are po- tential markets enough to keep all our resources employed, and to make all of us well to do. I, therefore, am optimistic, not be- cause this is a minor depression but because it is so very serious, so world-wide, so packed with suffering for everybody. Before it is finished we shall be compelled to effect international eeo- aomie reforms that we never should have considered in n)us tim. And when we do get business go- ing again our prosperity will US. According to Frank T. Sheets, chief highway ezineer, on for $717,144.79 worth of state high- way and bridg construction which were let on January 7, bro-aght the list of awards made since January 1 up to $1,288,512.24. According to Rodney H. Brandon, director of the department of public welfare, the per capita cost of carin@ for persons in the charitable and penal institutions of the state wss $347.55 in 1929. In 1930 this cost had drapped to $316.11 and in 19,31 was reduced to $309.14. Brandon estimates the 1932 per cap- ita cost will be about $274 for to- tal charitable and penal pulatio of 44,000.
