From Havelock Ellis Prosperity and civilization are far from being synony- mous terms. The working community that is suddenly glutted by an afflux of work and wages is in exactly the some position as the savage who is suddenly enabled to fill himself with a rich mass of decaying blubber. It is pros.. perity, it is not civilization. So far as business and money are concerned, a country gains nothing by o successful war, even though that war in- valves the acquisition of immense new provinces. Conquest brings self-conceit and irtolerance, the reck- less inflation and dissipation and energies. Defeat brings ruclence and concenCration; it ennobles cmd fortifies. The by-product is sometimes more valuable than the )roduct. Bear Lake County Fair Demonstrates Cooperative Spirit On Part Of Aft The News-Examiner joins the Fair Board, Chamber of Commerce and all other residents of the city in welcoming people of the Bear Lake Basin to next week's enual Bear Lake County Fair and entertainment. As elsewhere in America, this county fair is a great in- stitution. Here friends and neighbors meet and thrill to the occasion--and it is an event eagerly awaited by children. There, is a lot of good solid stuff, and also the fluff of spun pink candy--each important to the fair proper. Financed by taxpayers, the small cost is insignificant in comparison to derived social, educational and inspirational values. Management of the fair is by a board apgointed by the county commissioners. Assisting this board in overall dir-' ection cmd preparation are some 140 committee workers. Many firms and ,individuals give worthwhile awards and back-. ing to Boys' and Girls' 4-H Club work and FFA activities. Open to exhibitors are about 1,000 classes under divisions,, deportments and categories, covering a surprisingly large field in our local economy, education and culture. These classes carry cash .prizes and ribbons, making possible nearly 4,000 such awards. This is the 34th annual present'ion of the Bear bake County Fair at Montpelier. When the fair was permanently' located here in 1926, the Chember of Commerce assumed, the obligation of furnishing entertainment. The first year's show- ing wosunder canvas at Overland Park. The old race track grounds were made available cmd the present plant was begun. In recent years the physical layout has ndergone many improvements and additions, and is r:v bordered on the west by the newly re-routed U!. S. 30N highway. Montpelier merchants, realizing the need far such a civic undertaking, have put forth every effort through the Chamber! to present he type and kind of entertainment desired by the t people. These entertainments have been va,ried, such as race i meets, harness races, circuses, night revues, amateur and pro- I fessional rodeos, and other attractions. This year d night revue i is being staged, following seyeral years of professional rodeos, jl When profits accrued, they were put back i'nto the plant; when deficits ,resulted, they have been made up by popular subscrip- I tion of Chamber funds.
