Tenants and Landlords The discouraging '(.lung about, the clfort lliat is IjchiK iiiiulc to arouse sliarcccopiicrg of Ibis reyion to lie- man;! rc'liof from Ihjc unsiilisfaclory conditions that nwjucstioiKiljly prcvnil among them is thai there is no evidence of nn unduivilniKliut; on the part oi' anyone connected with the movement of what is really responsible for the state of affairs they condemn. So far ns can be determined from published interviews with leaders of the so-called Southern Tenant Farmers Union they think the people for whom they speak are the victims of oppression on the purl of dm landowners ami Unit all that is necessary to bettor their condition is to obtain an organization strong enough to force concessions. 11 is by no niwuis so simple ;i matter. There exists in northeast Arkansas a considerable surplus of Inbor. That condition resulted in the first place from the decline of the. limber industry in this area, it has been aggravated by the cotton acreage reduction proVrinn. II will not be eor- lecled until a balance is restored between the number of available workers and the amount of work to be done, which may be accomplished either by expansion'of cotton, production or oilier farm or industrial activity or by the txodus of-a part of the present population. The .government, in the (iitorcsts.of • a majority of the farming population, has placed restrictions upon cotton production. We believe that on the whole this was botli wise and necessary, but it has undeniably made harder the lot of many. To minimize the ill effects of the reduction program there was written info DIB cotton acreage contracts a clause which bound land .owners,, so far 'us possible, to mniiitiiin upon their places the same number of tenants thai they had before. There have oo doubt been chisel- er.=j but the majority of land owners have tried in good faith to live up to the spirit, of this clause. There has been some displacement of tenants. There has been a larger displacement of day laborers and cotton pickers, the inevitable result of a short crop. Even had it been possible to carry out the cotlon acreage reduction pro- BLYTHBVSLLE, (AHK.) COURIER NEWS gram without any /displacement of labor of any kind it would not have been economically sound to do so. The provision against reduction of number of tenants is good as an emergency measure, but in the long run it is bad. Survival of the American cotton industry in competition with expanding world production is dependent upon economical production. To require an American cotton farm to support more families limn urc needed to produce a crop in simply it way of subsidizing foreign competition—or of driving down the already low living standards of American cotton producers. Acreage reduction, in itself, is not incompatible with economical production. To the contrary, by the encouragement it gives to home production of food and feed and by the .opportunity it provides for maintenance of fertility through crop rotation, to say nothing of its tendency to eliminate from cotton production tho least productive soil, it should contribute to a cheaper pc-r-pomfd cost of production. Utit it cannot do so if there is an arbitrary increase in labor costs. Solution of the labor problem here and elsewhere in the cotton belt, therefore, requires cither a lifting of the bars upon production or removal elsewhere of excess labor. In the long run there is no other way out. The answer to the removal .suggestion is another (mention: Where? The answer to the- suggestion for increased production is, ns has often been pointed out in Hi is column, .such modification of American Uin'fl' |;nvs as will permit foreign customers to pay for American cotton with goods. In the meantime, while it must be reenguixed that tenant fanners have the same right as any other group of American citizens to. organize for the advancement, of what they conceive to be their interests—and have it right in w doing to the prelection of the civil authorities—it is extremely difficult to see what they can accomplish by the kind of program they have launched. They can't 'squeeze out of the landlord something he hasn't got. Their interests are not necessarily idenliniJ with his, but neither lie nor they can hope'for much until the business of cotton production is placed upon a reasonably stable and remunerative basis. .
