Turrentine, Arcadia r With the commencement aeuon oí school, college and university ap- proaching, thousands of boys and girls throughout the country are con fronted with that solemn problem of choosing a life career. Happily many of them have solved it or think they have. Perhaps the majority are in this fortunate group, but many oth- ers are pondering deeply the vital question. The last United States census showed that 41,614,248 administra- tors executives, and technical ex- perts. It js estimated that by 1930, 1,900,000 executives will be needed to supervise the work of the 60,300,000 persons then employed. It is further estimated that only 160,000 special- ists will be graduated from the col- leges and technical schools to fill the 400,000 new executive positions. What an opportunity these statistics show for ambitious young workers to rise from the ranks of industry to places of leadership. It is the eternal axiom of "plenty of room at the top" but from the statistics there ap...

Subscription Price: 1 Yaar in County 11.50 Out of County 2.00 THE CALDWELL MERCHANT It is well that our citisens give more than a passing thought to the debt they owe to Caldwell merchants and that this debt can be repaid by giving to them the trade of the com- munity, a trade that is rightfully theirs, a trade well earned. The truth of the matter is, home- town merchants are selling goods at, and if we will be fair enough to admit that it costs money to go to the city—car fare, gasoline, wear and tear of the car, time spent and shoe leather worn out—it is, after all is said and done, cheaper to trade at home, saying nothing of the spirit of reciprocity, of doing all we can for the home- ...

KEY- STONE OF COOKERY Did you ever «top to think what a teal balanced food the omlet was? Did yDU ever stop to think that an omlet was a full meal in one? Did you ever atop to think how quickly the omelet can be prepared— how satisfying it is—and what an economical meal you can serve by the use of the omlet? Europe with her intensive popula* tion, her limited land areas and her •ver growing need for human food in concentrated and efficient form, long ago came to appreciate the im- portant place which eggs must occu- py in her scheme of human nutrition. It is especially fitting that we in America should look to Europe's ex- periences and profit by her example. It is the history of all civilized coun- tries that as the population tecom&s massed together in large urban cen- ters, as the proportion of farmers and producers of food stuffs decrease, as the land area available for live stock production diminishes, a Nation must look more and more to the small ani- mal unit as a source ...

EXPLODING A MYTH The "summer slump" is the hallu- cination of an unbusinesslike mind. "There ain't no sich animal," except in imagination. The only slump in the good old summer time, if such there be, is the natural slump when business allows its summer advertis- ing to slump. Come to think of it, there are a- bundant businesses that effect their greatest volume of sales during the warm months; and there are no busi- ness increases that are not reflected in increases for other business....
