Pending sued* of the recovery effort we must cither provide tlie unemployed with cash for the necessities bf life, while permitting them to remain idle or giving them work on largely non-productive public projects, or we must .help, them to'-produce for themselves the goods which they must have. The first promises a heavy tax bui'den y the second a limited competition with private business. Hut what alternative is there? Profits t)s.

Of couise the leason that private manufacturers, despite their ample facilities, are not supplying the goods that tome millions of unemployed Americans need is that there is no ! profit in producing food and clothing ', for people who lack the means to pay i for them The pioblem of revivifying J our industrial hybtcm to enable it to ! supply the goods foi which there is 1 unquestioned need, and in doing HO to i provide employment for those now ' idle, seems to be essentially a prob- •p'lem in the restoration of purchasing *• power. With this in mind the iulmin- ~ isfratipn has .spent some billions of £ dollars m what is termed •aiueffoyt. to ;; "prime the pump," which is simply ft £ progiam of fencing money into cireula- - turn with the hope of providing the '» purchasing power which will/start fnc- •- torjcs operating and put men back to * work, thus providing more purchas- " ing power, a greater demand'for goods £ and creating an ascending spiral of ~ business activity " 'This effort has been only partially ; successful Whether continuing- or in~ creased government expenditures CHn £_ make it fully effective is a-iiiieslion ^that only time can answer. 'It is interesting to note, however, that some • of the,interests who object to plans to '• put the unemployed at work produc- ! ing goods for then own use are also ! critical of the "pimie the pump" pro', 'gram, which they contend threatens ; unbearable future tax burdens. ; These gentlemen, it seems to us, | come perilously near an attitude of de; manding that the employed be pormit- ' t ted to go hungry or naked until a way can be devised to make it profitable for private industry to feed and clothe ^hem They say, of course, that if • the government would just keep bands '. off everything would work out all right ! in time But with some millions of .— persons in tins country who would be Z faced with starvation were government Tht Laid SIDE GLANCES By George Clark EACH CLUB GII?LL f MIAMI McEmoir li Abandonment or suspension of the Hahkhend cotton production control act, as is now being vigorously urged in the southeastern states of the belt, would help 1 some American cotton growers, so far as cash return from this year's cotton crop is concerned, and would hurt other.s. Whether it would result in an increased totnl net return to the producers for this year's crop of. an actual net loss is a <|tics- tion tliut cannot be answered in advance for the reason that, aside from the matter of Bankbead law taxes oil excess production, there is the uncertain factbr of the influence on this year's price ;of, the promise of continuation of the 'control program next year. For It caii be asserted without t|uali- llchtion that suspension of the law this year means its death. Its .suspension is a live issue now because of political pressure from producers whose production exceeds their allotments. If that pressure results in its suspension there is nothing more certain than that next year's crop will be planted without much regard for the limitations imposed by the net. Which simply means that pressure for its suspension, strong this year despite the small crop, will be so overwhelming next year as to be irresistible. Now there are a good many who are convinced that the Bankheiid law, despite its obvious immediate beneiits, represents im unwise policy and Otic that in the long i'un is bound to injure theic6tton producing industry of this country. Its elimination, by whatsoever means, should be welcome to them. But those- who .hold the view that control by law of cotton ( production is necessary or desirable should understand that llrm application of the law this year is necessary if there is to be any crop control by law for many years to come. she didn't Uiliik 50.
