Fair Play Sweden does not even approximate the wealth in natural resources of Russia or America, yet her per capita income is far above Russia's and is almost as high as America's. What is the secret of this prosperity? For 20 years I have been trying to find the formula for national prosperity in observing .nations , all around the world. What is it that gives Sweden—a country the size of Oklahoma and Arkansas, with limited natural resources—an individual prosperity that puts her high in the running? I found everywhere in Sweden a spirit of wholesome living and fair play, and I discovered also that these things were based upon the strong religious foundations of the people. ^ During the week I spent in the heart of Sweden's largest ™ city, I saw not a single drunk ijor any indications of lewdness, things which are so. apparent in the parks of London and New York. The spirit of fair play and honest competition is manifest in every quarter in Sweden. People count more on it and talk more about it and mean it more sincerely than any people I know. For example/, the man who is responsible for running the affairs .of Sweden's trade unions wants industrial corporations to make a.reasonable profit. He wants to maintain private ownership and management. He wants fair play between labor and industry. He wants wages kept at a level that will assure a market for the greatest volume of goods. He wants cooperative understanding between labor and industry. His attitude, I was told by everyone, is typical of the Swedish .labor leader. He shuns Communism? or state socialism. He wants individual freedom, not regimentation of people's lives.

This fair play and competitive spirit goes-right down to the shops and factories, 85% of which'are operated on-incentive plans based <on piecework, or on bonuses paid for certain achievements. There-are floors for wages,..but no ceilings.. This means that those willing to work harder may. earn more than the minimum. This rule rightly belongs in our own American traditions, but Jet us not forget it. , - ' A Swedish labor leader told me: "Piecework is the chief means of increasing production.

The Peaceful Spirit Nations are a good dear like individual men on the question whe'ther they keep the peace or decide to fight. There are some; people who claim they can get along- well with anybody, and in most cases they do so.

Bill, who has just been awarded t he distinquished service award for having done the most for his town's welfare during 1946, was stricken with, infantile paralysis 9 years ago, December 14. He was confined to his bed for a year and a half. Given a chance to recover through the care of the State's rehabilitation program, assisted by the Crippled Children's Fund, and a desire to live and get well; he slowly But surely fought his way back to health. With the patient loving cafe of his mother and visiting nurse Miss Hutter, the use of his limbs was regained. The March of Dimes is doing for others right here in North Canton what was done for Bill Hoag nine years ago. It has always been the secret hope in Bill's heart to help a fellow victim of the dread polio, so when he was asked to help with the campaign here in North Canton, he gladly took on the job. Saturday Bill took young David Sannes, four year old son of Mr. and Mrs. Larry Sannes of 6th St., with him to appear on the March of Dimes program, which radio station. W.C.M.W. put on the air Saturday in a day long program. Young David was stricken with Polio last October 19, his -. right arm is affected, but with the help of the March.of Dimes Fund, he hopes some day to grow up with a strong healthy body. Another North Cantonite stricken rwith Infantile paralysis 'is at Aultman Hospital- in Canton, in an iron lung, thanks to the March,of Dimes Fund, -she is being given a chace to recover from "the dread disease. , Bill who knows the depths of despair a fellow stricken with Polio can. sink to, and the joy that can come when a fellow is given a helping hand, asks won't you dig a little deeper and put some more dimes in those boxes that_ are around town, you'll be bringing a chance for happiness and healthy bodies to fellow townspeople.
