VOLZ Five Point Place East Michigan Ave- Rain Fails to Halt Saturday Services Parade Carried Out With Address Given at High School Bonisteel Appeals for ''Patriotism of Peace" Among- General 1 Citizenry. Undaunted by • the deluge that spoiled! Decoration Day ceremonies all over this part of the country, Legionnaires, Scouts',. .Cubs, Campfire Girls, school children and the general public carried out the local pro-' gram Saturday morning in the scheduled fashion, ^except that the address of the day was ■delivered at the high school instead of at the cemetery. In the early morning the graves were decorated at the cemetery hy members of the Campfire Girls ana Boy Scouts, under the direction of the American Legion. Shortly after 10, the parade assembled at Maple avenue and! the procession, which was made up of the Scout hand, members of the William B. Lutz Post of the American Legion in full dress uniform. Scouts, Cubs, Campfire : Girls, school children and veterans of the Spanish-American war traversed Michigan avenue to the cemetery. The last were in automobiles which brought Up the rear of the procession. There were no Civil war veterans present this year. At the cemetery the Legion grave service was held with taps being played. The program was then adjourned from the cemetery, where it was originally planned! to have the speeches, and was continued in the high school auditorium. The 'stage was beautifully decorated with flowers for the occasion. Rev. C. E. Kircher gave the invocation which was followed hy the group singing "America," accompanied hy the band. Commander "Abe" Alber of the local Legion Post was chairman. Walter Cook expressed the thanks of the Legion for the uniforms which were supplied to the boys by a citizens' committee and stated that they would lead the mem- toers of the Post to take a more active part in civic affairs. The chairman introduced Roscoe Bonisteel of Ann Arbor, prominent ex-service man, Mason and attorney for the City of Saline, who delivered the Memorial Day address. "It is a fine thing to show our appreciation for 'services rendered this country, even though it arises out of the catclysm of war/' said Mr. Bonisteel, "but a mere passive appreciation is almost useless except as ii serves our recollection. "Active appreciation means something more than the mere holding of a Memorial Day exercise. Our country was founded on active patrot- ism," he continued. "Many years ago when I was a lad in high school I heard Governor Hahley of Indiana talk about the 'patriotism of peace.' The phrase stuck in my memory and as I have grown older and have had some experience I recognize that patriotism of peace is on a higher plane than the patriotism of war. In the patriotism of peace we have no blare of trumpet, no sounding of taps, or the flying flags and martial music which stirs the souls of young men to do battle, vif need! be, for their country. "In times of peace, the only guide we have as individual citizens is our conscience, which dictates to us the right and wrong of our daily life aha our responsibilities as citizens." Mr. Bonisteel outlined the effect of the present economic situation on the people of the nation and stated that he believed "the ex-service men must of necessity take a more active participation in the government of state and nation, not for the purpose oi seeking ofiice because of some service, rendered to the country while in the military service, nor for the purpose of perfecting legislation which will be in the selfish interest of the ex-service men, but for the purpose of endeavoring to maintain ths American standards of living, preventing the encroachment of ideas contrary to our form of government and to prevent the autocracy of the masses. "The 'patriotism of peace' to which Governor (Hanley referred" is a patriotism based upon good' citizenship coupled with a fearlessness to tackle those people in our country who would exploit it behind a mask and brace of pistols or by subtle intrigue and graft. We, as American citizens, should encourage the efforts of sincere citizens both public and private to thwart the exploitation of our neighbors and friends, hy this encouragement, cause men to render service in public ofiice who are well qualified and! fitted for the job rather than to hav,e men of slieh> qualifications spurn it because of fear of a vicious campaign, of false propaganda. ! "When the American public comes • to the point where it will honor men I for public service in the same way Ithat private enterprise rewards men •; who work inj its behalf, we will have better government and better officials," he stated in conclusion. The chairman then introduced Walter Cook. a member of the Legion, who read the preamble to the constitution of that body. The meeting was adjourned following the rendering of the'benediction by Rev. C. H. Wittbracht. Britton Farmer Finds Corn Production Cost Paul Clement Uses Method for Figuring Cost and Profit. Modern Accounting System*is Easy Road to Determining Important Factor. Paul Clement, Britton farmer, recently figured his cost on the production of corn for the 1930 season and found that it was 26 cents per bushel, an unusual figure when it is considered that the government average cost per acre on farms with similar yields was §20.06 when Mr. Clement's cost was only §10.41. In these days of high overhead and operating costs on farm lands, when many agriculturists are losing money on crops instead of making it, a modern cost accounting system is an excellent thing to have, as the agriculturist then has little difficulty in determining which are profitable crops. Hit or miss methods are easiest on the"mind, but hardest on the pocket- book. In determining just how much one bushel of corn cost him to produce, Mr. Clement figured his operation costs first. These included tractor and labor costs such as plowing, disking and harowing, planting, cultivating, picking and hauling. These totaled §231.80. Other costs came to §546.59 and were made up of machinery costs other than tractor, seed, fertilizer, planting, hauling and a general share p* the farm overhead: The total cost then came to §728.39 for 70 acres of corn with a yield of 2,800 bushels, bringing the cost per bushel to 26 cents. These costs did not include la.nd taxes and land1 rental, or interest on investment in land. Without guesswork Mr. Clement could figure his profits from the above figures and know just where he stands in the matter of corn production. Such a situation is of material aid to the farmer in determining his profits and losses on crops and helps immeasurably in the determination of crops for the ensuing season. In determining his tractor cost Mr. Clement divides the charges into two divisions. The first includes annual or overhead charges and the second includes daily or operating charges. The first group contains "the yearly depreciation, which is the first cost divided hy the estimated life of the tractor, which is ten years, the yearly interest or 7 per cent on one-half of the first cost, repairs at 4 per cent of initial cost, housing and insurance. These totaled §146.45. Divided by 140, the number of days used, the daily overhead charge was found to be §1.05. The second division, containing the daily or operating charges, were made up of gasoline, oil and grease and amounted to §2.55. The total daily overhead and operating cost then was found to be §3.60. With these figures he could easily determine the daily complete cost and extract the profit from these figures. Taxes and land valuation and several other factors have to be taken into consideration before the profit could be determined. DR. C. E. KIRCHER GIVES ' ADDRESS AT ROTARY CLUB Dr. C. E. Kircher, pastor of the Federated church, delivered a Memorial Day address at the regular noon meeting of the Rotary club Thursday at The Tavern. Stressing the religious side of this far-recognized day of mourning and remembrance, Dr. Kircher brought out the value of remembering the events and deeds of those who have passed on. He told of the great forgiveness and the memory of the Lord with biblical quotations. William Bassett of Ypsilanti was a guest at the meeting. Following the dinner today the members will adjourn tb the tourist camp, where the pine trees which were recently planted by the 4-H clubs will be dedicated to the memory of George Washington. While Constable Charles Arlinger of Fairmount City, Til., slept at his home a. thief entered, took his badge and §26 from a baby's bank, and escaped. Pav your cemetery dues now.

The young men of two of the Sunday school classes were the chief waiters and they carried out their parts well. The program was splendid from the beginning to the end. Mrs. Edna House was the song leader and she kept the banqueters busy. Not a moment was allowed to be wasted, for the whole program was skilfully and splendidly carried! on to the very- close.
