Regimentation H is H commonplace Uiat Ihc interests of the individual conic into frc- qiieiit conflict with the interests of society. Were there no checks uiul limitations upon the "rugged individualism" to which Herbert Hoover and others of his way of thinking used to attribute the progress and glory of our nation civilisation would soon KO down in chaos. Since, human beings .first' bewail to live together in wandering tribc.s or village settlements it li.iH.been necessary to cuib the rights of the individual to protect the rights of the group. And as these groups increased in sine and in the complexity of their social and economic organization additional limitations upon the rights of the individual were essential. A man nloau on a desert island may act as inclination leads,him. But ten men sharing a deseit island must.! respect each other's rights and millions of men, each a part of such a tremendous and com- plicfcted social organization.'^ t|ie United 'States of America, must respect each other's rights. For these curbs upon the individual's right to follow his own-/inclinations we are,, not wholly or perhaps even chiefly dependent upon law and force. Religion, codes of ethics and manners, the 'instinctive desire for the 'approval arid goodwill ,p( our fcllovys are quite as important'^ fear? of ' the police in helping us to behave as decent members of society. We are even developing in considerable degree a ifiiuliiy described aa "social mindedness," the possessors of which have in some measure suboidinated the.primitive instinct to look out for number one to a consciousness of social obligation. The reason for existence of social and economic organization' is the advancement of the welfare of society as a whole. In times past that was frequently interpreted as the welfare of a thin top crust of society. Prom the standpoint of certain forms of progress there is still something to be said for the view that the interests of the masses advantageously may be subordinated to the interests of those of exceptional abilities. Any who hold that view today, 'however, keep it to themselves, at least if they live in the United States, for it is part of the BLYTHEVILLB, (ARK,) COURIER NEWS American social philosophy that the thing to be sought is the greatest good for the greatest number, subject always to such limitations as are imposed by recognition of the fact that individuals and "minority groups have certain rights that may not be overridden even for the benefit of the majority. Of collide- the important question, and one that has never been answered with satisfactory certainty, is what kind and what degree of limitation of individual rights is best cnlcnlaled to serve the interests of society. We Iwve always had and will always have '"regimentation." But what kind of regimentation and how much? Within the past year we have repudiated the kind of regimentation represented by the prohibition amendment. At tho same time we have accepted and in some instances invited governmental restrictions upon activities ranging from the production of cotton to the marketing of hairpins. We may consider these new interferences with our right to do as we please a.s good or bad in theory., lint there is not much use getting excited about thci:i, In the absence of noticeably beneficial results they will not last 'long. The important thing is that the American people retain their political rights—their control over the government under which they live. So long- as they do that they will he. able to deal with infringements upon their other rights as seems to them lilting. J. R. Rhynt As this is written J. U. Khyne apparently is still director of Arkansas highways, but there seems to be no doubt that he will soon be out, Jt is be)ievq<l thy],, the ^commission' already holds his resignation and that it will take elVcct October 1. • A successor may be named at a meeting tomorrow. The removal, for that is what it amounts to, of the-head of an important state department is not necessarily a matter of serious concern. Even though that executive, as senms to have been true of Mr. Rhyne, has. made a good record, there is of course always the possibility of linding a better man for th« job. The reports that have leaked out as to the reasons for Mr. libync's impending, retirement from .the slate service, however, do, furnish grounds for misgivings.- If these reports, which have met with no denials, are to bo believed the director is getting the sack not because of any failure to do his job well, or because a better man is in sight for the job, but because iMr. Khyne has flatly refused to play politics with the money available for state highway work. The strongest virtue a man in his position could have is apparently bringing 1 about his downfall. What goes on In the capital Is of no ereat Importance, one »-«y or (lie other. Laws do not save n country. We arc loo strong nnrt resmircetul a people lo be hampered much by legislation. —Henry Ford.
