The Coun/y Farm Those impei'islinbie words of T'rcsi- • denl Hoover nbnut "fin ex|)oi'imcml, noble in motive," might appropriately bo applied lo .Mississippi cuiaily'.s new penal farm. Judge Harrison's plan is a splendid one if it works. If it doesn't it will he just one more burden on the taxpayers of the county. And let it be said here that there is no reason why it shouldn't work except the lU'knowlcdtfcd fact that such things are oflen dismal failures. . We arc, beginning to find out that fanning, even under the most favorable circumstances, is a business that cannot succeed without competent management. When men of cxi»ricncc, with their personal fortunes at stake and operating with men dependent upon the product of their labor for their livelihood, fail, it is obvious that success at farming is not easy, it will not be easier when operations are in charge of a man employed on a salary, whose job is perhaps more dependent upon the political fates than upon the results he achieves, and who has under him the misfits of the community, men for the most piu-t with neither' the experience nor ihe incentive to do a good job. The oiti convict lease system was a moral and economic failure. It may he said that whatever the outcome of the county owned farm plan it. cannot be worse than what \ve hail before. That is not strictly true. It could be just as bad morally end worse, for the taxpayers, financially. What it will be depends pretty much altogether upon the character of men the people of this county elect to the county judge's office, and the success these judges huve in. finding farm managers who are both humane and competent. Judga Harrison will make the right kind of a start. The farm is the major item in his program, and his administration will be largely judged by its success or failure. But he will not be in charge always, and it is up to the citizenship - of the comity to realize that a new responsibility has been assumed and that it is their business to help see that it is properly discharged. A Happy Illusion I'm still the KmptTor, former Kaiser Wilhelm H of Germany said the oilier dny. He was in uniform when he made \ the remark, find all the medals from the years when he had seen his .soldiers &> marching down broad roads lo victory were pinned across his chest. I'm still the Kmporor! No one pays much attention lo the 72-year-old monarch without a throns. The glory lliat wan Greece t'.nd the grandeur that WH Rome aren't any more extinct than the majesty that was the Kaiser's, It is him] fur men to realize that old orders change and give way lo the new. Napoleon, at Elba, planiU':! In some day lead bis troops to victory. Ceasfir always !:"d hopes that In 1 would conquer inure than the Gatils and ths Helvetian.'. Wilhclm 11 thinks that he TUESDAY, FKllHUAKY X, SIDE GLANCES By George Clack is rcniciiibered in Berlin when the linden iri.s begin to bloom aion.T the avenues. Hcing forgotten isn't so bad, when you can wear a uniform and imagine you arc remembered. The former ruler ol' the German empire is dressing up and pretending exactly like children do. We Do No! Believe You Oppose 'Reorganization Around Ihc hotel lobbies these days Governor ParneH's plan to reorbiuilze the state uovein- meiil is Iwlns vviiiely discussed by wo'.slrt-b: lobbyists, office holders and legislators. The Inlk of Ihc opponents of [lie rcorgtiiiiKUioii ;il- wnys ijolnls out that the measure will never GO through "because the (oiks in the country me agains'. it". Now we do not know how you folks .stand on Hint legislation und that proposed vcorKiinlza- lion. We do know thai the average farmer is Interested in lower expenses for state yuvern- ment, more efficiency, less red tape and ilie fixing of responsibility for success or failure In tiny government. Timt Is exactly whal this plan has done atlcr a hns been adopted in other states. It will do the same thins for Arkansas. There Is no hope for very much efficiency, very much lowering of state expenses or increasing services to the [jcoplc under (ho PICG- cnt set-up. It is u question of whether we want lo try something thai has proven bcttvr in other states or go along the old way. Parncll can't be accused ot playing politics localise the plan will go into lorce after he goes out of plflce. The office holders who will lose Ihrlr in'.is by the reorganization say, "Oh well, the 111,111 may be all right bill it will never go through". There Is where (hey an- wrong. That plan will go through if you folks want it to go through. This is a. chance for Arkansas to step lo the front among the more progressive states of the Union in a sound program. We believe . you lolks alter a study o! the matter will want Arkansas to lake that step. Anyway \vc hope, you will Hurt out all you can about the plan and then write your senator ami representatives to vote for your best Interest in the matter. —Stanley Andrews in Arkansas Farmer.
