NEVER NEGLECT A COLD
In every crowd there is always somebody who is ready to yell
lire I hen the panic starts. When order is restored, everybody
wonders why everybody else lost his head.
\\ hen President \\ ilson issued his war proclamation and called
upon the people of the United States to conserve their resources for
the struggle ahead, he did not mean that they should stop spending
money. He did mean that useless expenditures should stop but
that was nothing new. Business consists of buying and selling
Certain kinds of business are fundamental. The building business
is one of them.
There should be no curtailment in building and road construc-
tion. Let both public and private useful construction proceed
Production and handling of building materials and public and pi i-
| vate construction work are fundamental industries of the country.
Any tendency to suspend or postpone building projects is inconsist-
ent with maintaining our prosperity. The country is prosperous,
i Building investors should not hesitate to go ahead with their plans
Railroads should spare no effort to supply the building industry
with the cars needed to transport materials. Government, state,
county and municipal authorities should encourage the continuance
o: all kinds of building. Road and street improvements in particu-
lar should go on unabated. Bad roads and streets are factor of
lu-st importance in the present high cost of foodstuffs. Never be-
fore was the improvement of highways so essential.
1 he lumber, brick, cement, lime, sand, gravel, stone and other
building materials industries are basic. Neither Government regu-
lations nor railroad restrictions should be imposed unnecessarily to
interfere with them. If any action is taken which results in the
prostration of so fundamentally important industries, there is real
danger of a surplus of unemployed labor, a surplus of railroad cars
and a crippling of business that will seriously embarrass the Gov-
ernment in financing the war.

STARTLING! ! !
1'igures startling in the ex-
treme were submitted to the
farmers Union District Conven-
tion a few days ago in a report
read by C. C. Waller, of Fort
Worth, chairman of the livestock
poultry and dairy committee of
the District Union. ^
It was shown in the report that
more than 92,000 farms in Texas
are without a cow; 1(54,000 with-
out a hog,'and over 60,000 with-
out poultry. According to the
committee's report Texas is an-'
nually sending out of the state'
more than $10,000,000 for butter*
and $52,000,000 for meat. |
If this is the condition in a
regular cattle raising state, what
is the condition in Oklahoma?
