A LAUGHING MATTER v The people of Westchester County ought to get a good laugh out of the resolution adopted yesterday by the majority members of the Board of Supervisors which, in effect, puts them in leading strings. The resolution tie; a muzzle on the individuals on th^ majority side. Judging from the testimony of some of them before Samuel Untermyer. they need something stronger than a i 'muzzle. Then they talked loo much. Now they go to the other extreme and will not talk at all. Their views are to be “ canned ” and handed out by a paid press agent. There is nothing we can do about it. The majority can run tilings ns it pleases and it lias evidently read the vote of last Tuesday as a license to go the limit. > Thfe situation thus created is a novel ‘ one. In no other legislative body in this country does it exist, la no other would it be permitted to gxiat. Only a majority drunk with power and inflated with its own im ­ portance would attempt it. Needless to say, no self-respecting newspaper will publish any of the “ canned\ matter which the salaried press agent will hand out. The Daily Press will continue to be represented »t the;meetings of the Board of Su- pervisors and will continue to report the proceedings as it has in the past. It will report them accurately and let the chips fall where they may. We will not dignify the board ’ s press agent through controversy. Seeking for the reason for the drastic action taken by the majority, we may find it in the testimony of newspaper reporters called by Mr. Untermyer to give their version of what transpired at the meetings when the proposed office building deal was discussed and put through. At that time reporters represent ­ ing organization Republican and Democratic newspapers disDuted the accuracy of Supervisor Edward P. Barrett ’ s testimony as to the lan­ guage he used in debate. Although virtually every newspaper .Jn the county who reports the proceedings rtf flu, KrtflfH nlllilicliX^ r. si a ■ . J _ _ Investigations conducted in vari ­ ous cities disclose an increasing ten ­ dency among married women and mothers to enter into gainful occu ­ pations. One-third of the 40,000 employed women in the nation ’ s cap ­ ital are married and many of that number are mothers. Many are actu ­ ated by the desire for financial inde­ pendence and others by economio necessity. Two bread winners , in a family are often necessary to make both ends meet. JJere is a subject demanding seri ­ ous consideration. If the time comes when the vast majority of women must enter the factories, stores and offices to help maintain homes and support children the inevitable out­ come will be fewer homes and chil ­ dren. To permit such a condition would mean race suicide. And, in the final analysis, the fact' must not- be lost sight - of that eco ­ nomic laws work both ways. Large families are now-forcing mothers in ­ to gainful occupations. With large numbers of women thus engaged the birth rate must fall. The receding birth rate And children reaching .the self-supporting age will release more mothers and wives from outside em ­ ployment. with the result that the birth rate will again climb. From here the process' will begin all over again. FALL ’ S FIVE-YEAR CASE AT THIS TIME A YEAR AGO Another opportunity is presented to lead a helping hand where m definite service can be - performed.

A popular adage is \The man who '* ° ’ never made a mistake never made a dollar,\'Bbt a truer statement of fact might be \The Man who never made a mistake has not yet lived.\ Conceding that all men make mis ­ takes, it is manifest that only the same mistake repeated is unpardon ­ able and the habit, not the individfkl mistake, is costly. Somebody pays everytimf somebody blunders and the only way to coirect the habit of blun ­ dering is to'form the habit of doing things right Form the habit of be ­ ing careful and take pains today that you may spare yourself incalculable pain tomorrow. Many are blunder ­ ing on to success by making the most of their blunders.

The re-election of Comp- lroller Leslie V. Bateman by Vernon Vote a substantial majority over Ray Aylesworth must be ac ­ cepted as an endorsement of the comptroller's fine record In office.
