Prompt Service on Job Work : of All: Kinds Mt. Pulaski Times Mt. Pulaski, IIHnois DID YOU EVER STOP TO THINK? The danger of suddenly becoming aware of a new notion and taking it to extremes is something hard- ly less in people of mature age than is young peo- ple, and more strange still, is not less at all in com- munities than in individuals. Thus thoe is the likelihood that the insistence up- onthe interdendence of states and communiti, which is :beingheard from all quarters today, may become detrimentallto more obvious needs and methods. Interdependence in finance and industry is chieflya matter of co-ordinating financial mea- sures, output and consumption. It. is dangerous to jump at conclusions that com- plicationshould be heaped upon complication in the matter of transferring goods here and there without adequate reason and so multiplying their final cost to consumer reducing purchasing power.
