No Ouer Population Here A dispatch from Washington says that the campaign for repeal of federal laws forbidding the circulation of birth control information has good prospect.-; of suieccss this year because congressmen feel that with machines displacing millions of workcvs restriction of population growth in essential. Then; arc a number of strong' and valid arguments for removal af the ban on dissemination of birth control information, but the theory that there is an economic necessity fr>v limitation of population ^ in the United States is not one of them. Those who advance it overlook the fact that population growth provides additional consumers just as rapidly as it does additional producers. Artificial restriction of population is an'economic necessity'in countries which lack the resources to support additional inhabitants. : But that is not the difficulty in ihe United States, where we are easily able to . produce., more. t)iijn .enough to supply the'needs of our people and are actually resorting to curtailment of production in order that our goods may find markets. The question with us is not one involving a need for ft greater or lesser population. What we require is such changes in our economic organization , «s will enable our people to consume what -^tliey produce, fluejriionjf S W* redistribution of wealth is the solution. It might better be described as .redistribution of purchasing power. It is not necessarily important in whom rests title to great railroads, manufacturing plants, landed estates, and other forms of wealth. Hut it is extremely important that those who are employed in the operation of such establishments be rewarded with spending power substantially e.(\u;\\ to their • contribution to the valtir. of the goods they produce. It Is Better to Spend on War That Pays A nation that is going ten billion dollars into debt in one ye«r certainly is going' somewhere at a prodigious rate. Some of the people at Washington think v,'c arc heading straight for recovery, and others think thst we are plunging down a steep pl'ice into the m. Before the rest of us give way either to encouragement or to fright, it would pifty UB to stop and figure just what the implications of this titKiiic spending may be. The first thing one thinks of is the World War. We sjwnt at a greater rate than this during the war, and we- kept it up longer, and we c->mc out of it without cracking under the strain. Furthermore, there is nut the slightest doubt that, if we wevc at war today, sums of this size would be voted without any misgivings at all. That being so, why nut compare our present situation to a war-time crisis? The comparison is a perfectly proper one. * « * What is at slake in a war? National existence itself may be at stake— though that was not the c:ise with us in the World War, nor in the war with Spain. Money, national honor, national- influence, certain intangible considerations that bulk large or small, depending on how you look at them—these were the things that went into the balance when we got into on: last war. What is at stake now? Well—a lot of things; our faith in our form of government :md our social structure, our dream of democracy and our vision of destiny, the happiness and comfort of many millions of people; a total far greater than anything we risked by going to war with the. German empire. , If. it was proper to spend at an un, henrd-of rate to beat the kniser, is it .• not infinitely more proper to spend at an equal rate today to save the things which all Americans hold most dear? * » » There is still another angle to it. The money we spent in 1917 anil 1918 was spent for purposes of destruction. When we got through, we had nothing to show for it. A shell that has exploded, a ship that has gone to the bottom, a man who has been turned into a corpse— these are not, in any economy, dividend-producing items. They are what billions bought in the World War. Today we are spending to build things. We are building highways and bridges and dams and towns and homes, we are sending to strengthen banks and railroads and farms and factories, we are, spending to make men and women and children strong and healthy and courageous. We shall have all thesa things after the spending is over. Can any American doubt that these possessions will make simpler the task of paying back what we. are borrowing? —Bruce Cation.
