For Mutual Understanding Holders of bonds of Dr;umiKc Dis. .ti'icl 17 are not'unnaturally nhirmed .at (lie turn (akcii Ijy the district's nf- '•fairs. They are entitled to the fullest possible protection for llicir investment, and no reasonable man can blame them for taking whatever steps the law permits -them for the safeguarding of their interests. For the sake of all concerned, however, which includes the bondholders themselves as well as the owners of land in the district, it is to be hoped that they will inform themselves of the situation in Uic district, and plan their program on' the basis of helping- the district and its hind owners to work their way out of their present difficulties, rather than attempt to insist upon immediate fulfillment, of the district's obligation to the letter. District 17 is worth the bonds outstanding against it. But the situation is such now that it cannot pay what it owes. If the bondholders are successful in an attempt to compel such payment they will merely contribute to the destruction of the values which exist in the district, and thus cut themselves off from hope of ever obtaining full payment. If oii (ho other hand they cooperate in the physical and financial rehabilitation of the district there is no reason apparent now why they should not eventually realize, in full upon the bonds which they hold. Impatient creditors have been responsible for the destruction of many ' private businesses that might otherwise have "worked their Vay 1 out of their difficulties and paid in full. The situation with respect, to the district is exactly comparable. The bondholders may be successful in giu'ning court authority that will psrmit them to drive the people) of the district from their . farms and homes, but if (hey do that they will simply destroy the value of their security. It is scarcely believable that they will be so short sighted. . The effort that is being made to set aside the receivership established by the chancery court must certainly lie based on the. failure of the protesting bondholders to inform themselves of the situation. If they knew Churchill Buck, the receiver, and Chancellor Futrell, under whom the receiver will op- OUT OUR WAY cm to, they would know that their rights would receive the fullest protection. If they knew the physical condition of (lie district and the economic situation which prevails in it they would know that a policy of forcbear- ance now wii! pay (hem many times over what they can i.xpuel from the immediate exertion of pressure for the satisfaction of (heir claims:. There should bi> .some way to linns about the appointment of a. committee of the bondholders to make a first hand study O f the situation surroimd- »if the ivcclversiiip, and the conditions in the district. Such a study, it is reasonable to believe, would result in Jin undenstaiultjur ;>.tid a program of cooperation lhat would bo infinitely more beneficial to all concerned Uml the present fi«JU over the receivership.

In a special birthday Interview with NEA Service, she said: "Our most pressing need—one that will do away with much suffering—Is the enactment of widespread measures for insurance against unemployment, old age mid other such preventable disasters There has been a small beginning in this, but it, must be carried out on a large scale lo be efficacious."

Asked what she considered the most important achievement of the present age, she said: "Wisdom does not necessarily accompany old age unless it achieves an understanding ot Hie changing times. "I believe thc outstanding achievement, the one we of today should be most proud of. has been the establishment of conferences and treaties between the governments of thc world for thc reduction of armaments and (he outlawry of war. it is a certain indication of the time when international friendship will be more than a mere expression.
