At least (hat is tlie opinion of men \vho have been active thus far in the campaign. There should be no such difficulty, and there would be none if all whose interests are involved would stop to consider that no advantage that they might possibly obtain in the division of the benefits could be of one-half the importance to them of .success of the program. ,\ The government, in ofl'cring. benefits for the diminution of land from clot- ton production, has set the division to . be made of such benefits between the Jand owners and the tenant The difficulty seems to be that many land owners think that 'they should receive 'more than the jilaii Mends they should receive. Tenants, naturally, do not think they should accept less than the government says they should have, and they should not be asked to take less. The fundamental purpose uf the program is to help the farmer, and by farmer, js meant the man .w! o dues the fanning, whether he owns the land .he operates, pays citoh rent, or is Si-hat the, government terms a "managing share-tenant." The'man who simply owns the land, from wl'k'li he derives cash or share rents, is nut a farmer. But although the government's program is not designed primarily for his 'benefit he stands to derive very substantial bcnci:Ls from its success. The land owner bus suffered along with the farmer from depressed cotton prices. His rents have been reduced and they have been jandc harder to collect. His only hope is for such improvement in the price of cotton as will make his rents give him an adequate return tipoh the investment he has in the land lie own:-:. Success of the acreage reduction program will give him that. It .would be worth some immediate sacrifice to obtain it. But the government's plan requires no real sacrifice on the part of the land JUT OUK WAY AND owner. It offer.s him u fair rental on the !»nd to bo held out of cotton. It algo offers'the tenant compensation for reduction |in his cotton production, \yhjcli is proper. Probably r)o plan could be devised that woulr 1 be absolutely equitable under all situations. But the one that is offered comes close enough so that none, in view of the major Ijene/iU ivhicli if liolJs in store for all Interested in the production of cotton, should hold out 0:1 account of a feeling that they ought to have more. Reassuring President Itoo.scvelt's request of congress today that the value of the dollar be fixed at Iwtwecn 50 :md 60 per cent of its former gold value should alarm no one. He i.s proposing little more than has already been accomplished. To those who are afraid of inflation his message today should be reassuring, for it reveals Ibit he does not propose, devaluation of the dollar much below its present level, and that he does propose stabilization at a definite level, winch is what conservative elements have been asking. Equally reassuring is his request that title to all monetary gold be vested in the government. [\<: does not propose confiscation of this gold, but rather to save for the government the increase in its dollar value resulting from the reduction in the dollar's gold value. That i.s fair enough to those who hold the gold, and the profit to the government will go a Ion;,' way toward paying the 'cost of the recovery pro- grarit.. ; II scctiK as if God meant (o desert the German church. —The Hev.

Moat at theinj I suppose, would have dltticully defining the term, but all the same, they know what It means. * * * A gentleman -is one who Li somehow superior lo the common rim. He wil 1 . fight longer, and he can be trusted further. There is a point, perhaps, at which he, too. will turn ana run, and another at whicli ho will sell out ins friends to his'own advantaee, but both jxjints Jic far out- in space, and muc'i beyond the spot, at which im ordinary poliiician will be ready and even eager lo barter hi s grandmother's false tueth for a Job.. » * • On this fad. we must pin vliat remains of 'our trust. The science of government is really very simple, else. the work' would h«vc gone lo pot loiia ago.' The country will remain safe enough lor all practical purposes so long as it Is in the hands of. n. man of character, honest, gallant and mellowed and moderated by a sense of humor. Mo.Et Americans.

They, no doubt, would have been glad to send three or four men to look up the church records and figured out the whole thing for them. That would have left you free to go on with your planning and managing everything I just told Archibald that it was lucky (or that church that you did not get married several years ago for you would have been kept bkisy looking after your hiirne and family which, no doubt, would have been large as you do everything in a btp way, and think whut the church . would havci'last in. the way of advice lo sny nothing of your solo work and leadership In the social side of any church is as - important, if not more so. than the preaching. That reminds me: Did yon ever locate (he school that teaches preaching by correspondence?
