"Since last November there has been a larger monthly average total of strikes than at any other period in the country's history with the exception of 1917," says the United States News. From November through May, exactly 2,323 strikes have occured. They have struck 46 of the 48 states North Dakota and New Mexico beexing the exceptions. As is to be pected, they have been most numerous in sections of the country where industrial development is highest-Michi- gan, New York, New England, California. They have been least nu merous to the agricultural Btates Iowa, Kansas, Nebraska, etc. Even so, there is nothing unique in the number of strikes that have occurred in recent months the World War years provide a numerical parallel. However, as the U. S.

The Supreme Court spoke of this fact in upholding the Act, but said there was nothing in the Constitution to prevent Congress from passlaw. So far, the Waging a ner Act has certainly failed in preventing strikes but in fairness to the Act, it should be recorded that it has seldom been invoked. In the recent steel strikes, for instance, it was not brought into force. As a result, the adequacy of the Act remains in question, and is yet to be proved. General opinion holds that the Act must be ex tensively revised if it is to achieve real success. one-side-d Leader Ads Get Results Here's a good way to quiet "NERVES" A Dr. Mile .Efferveteent Her vin Tab- let, a glass of troter, a pleasant, sparkling drink.

Imagination of the householder has a better opportunity to express itself in creating this basement playroom than in almost any other part of the home. The use of Celotex insulating board to finish the walls assures a room that will be warmer in winter and cooler in summer. An artistic instinct may be expressed by the painting of decorative murals over the entire surface of this cane fiber board. Others prefer the pleasing effect of its natural neutral coloring, with only occasional stencils to lend it cheer.

The attractive urn pictured, has a ten cup capacity, is chromium plated, and has a heat resistant glass bowl top. For busy hostesses, this new coffee brewer is a llfesaver. The coffee can be prepared before the guests arrive, and by keeping the current connected, the beverage remains at an even hot temperature until serving time. This is automatically accomplished by the electrical device which shuts the current off the moment the coffee is done, and then flickers on and off intermittently to keep it fresh and hot Ml ill HI nt HI ill HI III lit ill III I'l I HI north country agriculture.

The net loss of 80,000 persons represents the first decrease in farm population since 1929. The Bureau reported that 1,166,000 0 persons left farms last, and that moved to farms from villages, towns and cities. But the net migration off the farms was almost entirely offset by an excess of farm births over deaths; births were estimated at 719,-00- 716,000, "NERVES" The words "fort," "mount," "point," "port," used as a part of proper place names should never be abbreviated. correctly: A.

One thing is certain labor is more powerful today than ever in the past. In the nineteen years ending in 1932, less than 30 per cent of strikes endede with labor winning its demands. Last year, more than 40 per cent of strikes culminated In unequivocal victories for the strikers, while in 36 per cent The business outlook remains mixed.

In practically all sti ikeslabor demanded higher wages and or shorter working: weeks. The closed shop was rarely a vital issue Today the primary demand of strik ers is the closed shop. In many m stances, union demands for higher wages and shorter wo:k weeks have been met by industry but strikes have continued, because employers re fused to grant the closed shop. This is obviously a vital change in labor's atitude. Furthermore, it has been accompanied by the entry of labor into politics on an unprecedented scale. The A. F. of L., for instance, used to keep absolutely clear of political partisanship yet before the last election, A. F. of L.'s President Green and other high officials came out strongly in favor of the reelection of Mr. Roosevelt. And John L. Lewis, bead of A. F. of L.'s rival, the CIO, is strong Roosevelt backer, and was a major contributor to the Democratic campaign fund. He is likewise a strong influence in several of the major industrial states, notably Pennsylvania and Michigan. It is his belief that the labor movement, if it is to be successful, must be permanently and aggressively involved in politics. ' This unprecedented situation has caused a definite cleavage of opinion over labor and its desires and activities. It is the general opinion among employers, for instance, that the great issue of the hour is whether labor Is to run, by proxy, the government. The labor union executives and the liberal and radical publications that side with labor, feel that direct action is essential, and that 'w Few housewives can express their Idea of a perfect kitchen.

And, with working surfaces, it is attractive, durable, and easy to keep clean and smart looking. Such treatment is easy to apply to both old and new kitchens. An important aid to comfort is the nionel ventilator over the range. This removes cooking odors and, being made of silvery metal, does not mar the beauty of the room.

Elliott revolving fund adminis tered by the egricultural council of the Duluth Chamber of Commerce This fund was set up for the purpose of interesting club members in sheep productoin. Money from the fund Is" loaned to youngsters for the purpose of buying good ewes. The in terest rate is 5 percent, but the mon ey accruing from this interest charge does not become a part of the fund, It is used only as insurance. If a club member's ewe dies before it has been paid for, the loss Is paid out of the 5 percent Interest charge. At the outset there was $1,000 in the Elliott fund and this amount was increased to meet an increasing demand from the club members . . .

As ancient Gauls rushed headlong into battle, they trusted their safety to their swords, strength and the "magic" coral imbedded in their shields or helmets. Many Italians and Indians regard coral as protection against the "evil eye." The world's red coral comes from the reefs off the Mediterranean coast of Africa, says the Washington Post, and is obtained chiefly by Italians. c in the past month. D.
