But among them, also, were those whose religion was formal, who cared a great deal more about their own power and prerogatives lhan they did about essential ''factors of righteousness, truth, and fairness toward their felHAv- men. This is the age-long tragedy of religion—that so many who have made high professions have not had lives that were established in essential goodness and kindlhrss. Courier News. iUe, Arkansas l>t.r Sir; During recent weeks many facts and problems have b:'en brought io our lUtentlon ,is a result of i!n> war and its im ; )aet on food production. Since wi' are livinj.-. in an area thai is essentially agricultural, 1 thought. yt;u miyht like to have a brief sii;nin'.ir.\ l of some of tlie farm problems which We have observed. In agriculture, as in Industry, production o! sufficient food mid agricultural products is a vital necessity. We have bit', orders for J'ood, and when we Ir.vve IHi; imdtwilei'ii, we naturallv think ol bi« producers. Hut we've the buj ones can't .production anything nml Illle to liiivc Icunml (hut ;t.i'p up (heir like what \vr vear on the farms in the .South md Midwest. Those families must )c tied to the land during this vur period. We must not* waste lii.s reservoir of labor and time which exists on the small farms. lu the Midsouth an average of f> out of every 100 families moves •ach year. This aits working, clays which cannot be re-covered. I would like to make this suggestion as u solution to the food production problem; Provide the ill farmers with Ih^ tools, linunce, supervision, and tenure for Die duration of Ihe war, and we will solve much of the farm unemployment problem and the food problem al the same (lmt». Not only that, but the income of the farmers and their communities will improve, it will mean that during the war we will have built up a grouo of farmers who will be bclfrr prepared to combat the effects of the post-war period. 1 would appr-.\-iale having your commenl.s on ilur,.- ideas. .Hiiuvrelv yours, J.
