Farming For,A Living & worker among "negro farmers in Mississippi valley slates wrote to a Memphis paper -tlic other day that his., peopl? on the poor hill lands \verc well fortified against the coming winter with meat, poultry, potatoes and vegetables which they had succeeded in producing despite th a drouth, but that much .suffering was in prospect among negro farmers on the rich delta lands. Those acquainted with conditions say the situation is very similar among a largo proportion of the small white farmers. Thi hill farmer farms to make a living. The delts farmer farms to make money. This year has been a very poor year to farm to make money. It has been a good year, as evsry year is, to-farm to make a living. We do not see any basis for an honest prediction that next year or any year in the immediate futura will be good for making money at farming. They will all be goad for making a living, and maybe a little money on the side. The farmer ^Yllo is wise, in laying his plans for next ysar, will develop a program that will insure for him and his family a comfortable living. In addition ho will try to make a little money on the side, and if ho is successful in the first part of the program there is no reason why he should fail in the second. V These' are bad times for making money at farming, but it does not necessarily follow that the farmer Jvito points h'is program at the providing of a living is in need of sympathy. In j many ways ho is better off than the majority of his city neighbors. His is the self respect that comes -with ' economic independence. He has a job from which no man can fire him. He need ask favors of no one. Bankers and collection lawyers and installment men hold no terrors for him. He may not drive as shiny an automobile or listen to as big a radio as many a town 'dweller, but he is free of the fears and worries that torment the lives of many who think themselves . successful. The hard work and the many denials • which farm life involves have not been : justified by > the monev most farmers OUT OUK WAY have made, but when they have brought the ability to look any man in the eye and tell him, if circumstances warrant, to go to the hot place, they have brought a reward that is not to be sneered at. Better Saje Than Sony Now thai concern for thts safely of deposits In the First National Hank has been dissipated by the knowledge that the institution is in sound condition nnd| will shortly reopen, well fortified against business depression or panic, there is noted an inclination among scmo people lo hold the officers at fault for subjecting them to wha£ they now feel WHS an unwarranted scare.. It is certainly mil for this column to attempt to say whether the temporary closing of the bank was necessary or otherwise. But as a general proposition we would like to point out that the common fault among banks that close their doors is that such action is taken loo late. A banker handles other people's money. His first and highest responsibility is for the safely of that money. The obligation he owes his stockholders must come second. Whenever a banker has reason to believe that hia institution is threatened with a silnation that may endanger the security of the deposits it is his duty to suspend busi ? ness until that dangu 1 can bu eliminated. The reason that banks as a whole have not had the nioasure of public confidence which, most of Ilium deserve and which is essential to the welfare of themselves and the communities they serve is that too many of them have . been willing lo take chances with other people's money. They have rcmtiinsd open when they should have clo-ed. Whether or not the temporary closing of th: First National was necessary, it has had the result of putting the institution in shape to withstand anything the future may produce. And from the standpoint of the deiwsitors and the community that is more than ample recompense for a few anxious nights.
