T/ie Delay In Public Works Harold U Ickes, secretary of the interior and administrator of the ?H,300,000,000 federal public works fund, is critical of those at the head of local units of government for their failure to take advantage of the opportunity to obtain federal funds in large amounts for public works and thus help speed national recovery. ' It is certainly true, as Mr. Ickea declares, that the terms under which . the government is offering the money —30 per cent an outright grant and 70 per cent a long term, low interest loan—are extremely liberal. Nor can it be maintained that the restrictions • Which the administration places upon the use of the money are unreasonable. But the fact remains, as Mr. Ickcs muHt be aware, that other very serious obstacles prevent many municipalities. and ..other, taxing utiils from, taking advantage of this fund. : First and above all in importance is the-fact that many—probably u majority—American cities, counties and school districts are already so debt burdened that, they simply cannot load their taxpayers with a new obligation, no matter how favorable the conditions. The Blytheville school district ofl'ers .• a c^se in point. Tlje district needs one r ror-.more nc\v school'bulJdlhgH. Present facilities. arc somewhat strained under present conditions, and with anything like a full enrollment of. children of school-age they would be absolutely iha'deiiuate. Now, with building costs a till, relatively low and with the federal government offering an outright gift of 80 per cent of the cost, would , be an excellent time to build. But service . on. the district's present debt mjtiircs a proportion o!' the district's revenue so great as to make impossible the operation of a free high school. The district simply cannot consider increasing its' .debt. There are probably thousands of other school districts in the same situation. .So debt burdened, in : fact, are the majority of local taxing units throughout the country, that it is doubtful if ' a:public works program-which depends upon loans to them can accomplish much toward bringing about recovery. If the, administration wishes to make its ?3,300,000,000 a willy effective weapon in the war aga<nst depression OUT OUR WAY it will probably liave to ilse moot of it on direct federal projects. The St. Francitf valley flood control proposal is an example-of the kind of work.-th»t might properly be done with such government money. Mr. IckM might well hasten action upon such projects rather than want*! time lamenting the slowness of municipalities to embark upon construction work for which they have no funds. ' . MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 25, ion Acreage Reduction and the Tenant Granting, as seems self-evident, that all who participate in the prwhicliofi of cotton should share in just proportion in nny-benclils to lie derived fromj the government's program for rescuing the cotton farmer from economic distress, it follows that the HUC- CCSH of the" acreage reduction program for next year depends upon the making of proper provision for those who, while owners of no cotton land, are Revefrtheluss dependent upon the production of cotton, for their living. •A 40 per cc;<t cotton acreage reduction, that resulted in anything approximating a 40 per cent reduction in the. number of families employed in the making of the crop certainly would not solve tho south's pro'ilem. It would instead c'rcate'-a-tremendous new problem. This is realized Ijy tt.e Agricultural Adjustment Administration, whose finance administrator, Oscar Johnston, has already announced a plan under which the' Delia and Pine Land company will retain its present number of tenant cotton farmers -, despite the fact that under the' reduction pro-gram it will have only about 8,400 acres in cotton, instead of its normal 14,00(X Cotton acreage will hi' assigned to each tenant, family on .1 reduced basis, the per acre advanced to each family will be -increased, and tenants will be allowed free use of part of the . land retired from cotton production for the growing of garden and !otlier food crops. Farm officiala, according to a dispatch from Washington, hope that other planters wilt make similar arrangements to provide for their tenants. Many, of .them, ..probably the great majority, will do so voluntarily. But, to prevent serious' hardship resulting from the reduction program, benefits to those reducing acreage should be made contingent upon some such arrangement. The real dirt about the coal code is that the operators for-once have hart to come clean. v • * •: Hal tald.
