Land Aplenty Assures Us Against Collapse the •NiiUoiui! Resources Committee, ^vhicli has jubt completed for President Roosuvelt an extensive survey o( oui 1 soil .",iul its ills, l)CKius its report by calmly i>ralictini> that American civiliwition will collapse completely unless men conic to flic I-PSCUU of the soil they have misused. "The fact is," says the report, "most of tlia territory occupied by the United Slates is not naturally suited Tor .1 permanent civilization. It is like the land of the Mayns of Yucatan or the land of Itabylon—a rich country where civilixalion can (lash into a bla/.e of ({lory and then coll.ipse in n few generations into ruin. "Our soil," the report continues, "is not enriched by the usual methods of .cultivation, hut impoverished. I5y the piocesscs of our farm ing, our mining, and our lumhcrint;, we create a dc&crl. . . . Any nut ion whose land naturally tonds to turn inlo desert must cither take measures to preserve the land or it will surely die." Thill; sounds .very bud;'but there is worse to come. The report points out that other nations with funning land which had thai desert-creating tendency, have been able to stay in business only by regimenting their people and undertaking colossally expensive public works programs. The empires of ancient Peru arid Egypt, which im- IJOsqd tin ant-like discipline on the' 1 masses aa the price of survival, !U'C caEce in -point. ' ,,$- v ',' f i!y this time, a man who takes gov- ,cniyiuwl report-, seriously might well be- icady to sell out and move to Zambomiga or some equally remote spot. But it is just beic, with the sky darkened on all sides, that Ihe Resouices Committee lets in a strong gleam of sunlight. After all, il points out, the United Slates is a big country—unbelievably big. If it has millions of acres of soil that should not be farmed as we now farm il, il has other millions of acres which, with a little care, can be farmed until,doomsday. It can afford Jo restore whole sections to grassland, for instance; to a\oid overgrazing; to lul t forests back on mountain .slopes too steep for permanent cultivation; to farm only that land which can be farmed without risk —for it has land, land, and to spare. In other woids—we face a serious emergency, and we have got to map out a long-range program for proper land use. IJul we can do it without breaking ourselves. This will continue to be a land of plenty evx'ii after we have plugged the leaks. It Doesn't Happen Here If you're one who gets a bit excited now and (lien about .the status of your liberties as an American, you ought to consider the new Nazi criminal code, which seems to be a model of persecution. A 70-year-old resident of Gotha, for instance, was sentenced to 15 months in prison for writing to a friend in Switzerland, expressing himself freely about certain Nazi parly leaders. A Kiel professor got two months in jail and a line of 1,000 marks for "criticizing the form of stale in non- faclual manner." Slill another German citizen was sentenced to 10 months in jail because he asserted that, during one of the recent butter and egg shortages, deliveries wore being made lo party leaders just the same. Now drop back to America. Yon have only to consider this <|iicstion: In what other country today could a man label the chief executive -"liar" and "donblc-crossor" and get away Test Before Release Henceforth, prisoners seeking parole from Michigan prisons must pass a systematic mental examination before being released to. society. "Only a (mined psychiatrist can weed out the borderline cases," says Joseph C. Armstrong, state pardon and parole commissioner. "Those cases usually slip by the ordinary jienologist and become a hazard to the outside world." Commissioner Armstrong k 11 o w s what he's talking about, because- Michigan dismissed ils former psychiatrist for reasons of economy ami discovered that -lliis had been a rather shortsighted move. The problem of paroled men who wciit bad after, release became increasingly worse. :' .',;' The Michigan experience, .therefore/' is something for other slates to bear in mind. . • 'SAtUIlDAY,' JULY 25, 183 , SIDE GLANCES By George Clark So Muck tor '• " BKCa.V IIKIII-: 'J'OIIAY- HI:I.I;\A mimiiK, youittui fccui! uf Ifte winm-ii'M H|i"rlMYCnr «K|-:trli>;i-iLt tit Hfirl^VKlure, KOCH on u ui'fk-fml iKirl^ n( Crl'Bt ' kartd,,)n,i' IT.

He seemed about to say something more, thought belter of it—then finally blurted out: "I ... I was terribly sorry to hear about Mr. Henderson. I didn't know him very well, but—" "Thank you, Mr. Jameson. I appreciate what you say." * * * "RUT, Helena told herself as she climbed the stairway lo the, mezzanine, she didn't really appreciate what Harvey Jameson had said. The truth was that his condolences embarrassed her. And why? Resolutely she faced this question. "It's because—because I feel so little for poor Peter . . . no, that's not true. I do feel a great deal for him. But not enough. Not what a widow should." Too late now to ponder over this. .With the hcnrtlessuess of reality, a row of office doors confronted her. As she stood there, looking at them, she was startled by a footfall on the stairway. She turned to sec Roger Barnes. "Good morning," he said. His whole manner had changed from the day 'before.

The child prayed, "Please, Lord, make mother believe me." * a f This sort of failure of parents to understand the real nature of the child's mine! is in itself a worse fault than the- fanlnslcs or fable In which children occasionally indulge. Remember that inaccuracy is not necessarily lying. A child evaluates its experiences in -terms of its own mind. Thus, if the child says that it saw a clog as targe as a pony, or if it reports experiences in terms which seem to the parents greatly exaggerated, the parents must remember that the child's mind differs from that of the'adult. .
