Ttnants Into QiOners >i.-, ^ The plan-of Scnntor liunlvht'iid, of Alabama, for l|ie farm tenant systuiu in the Soutli by providing s;ov- enimciit aitl to sharecroppers in the purchase of small farms of their own is altogether laudable iu purpose but, it involves (lifficiillic.s of a kind lo make the little 'matter of limling Hie necessary money to finance such a program a relatively inconsequential problem. Hiram Norcross, Pcinsctt county land owner, has made the statement that 90 per cent of plantation tenants, if given farms of their own free of ilcbl, would not IK; able to operate them successfully. Thai seems lo bu an extreme stulciiiunl,' but at UK: .same time it must be recognized that a large proportion of sharecroppers are uot equipped to conduct independent farm operations. It is not necessarily Ihcir fault that they are not. jA life time of scmi- dependcncy under a system which makes minimum deinamjs upon 1111 in- (livirlualV ability to plan or exercise initiative is poor training' for proprietorship. IMter training there must be before the Bankliead proposal can be expected, lo work successfully on any large scale. In this connection it will bu interesting to watch t\v 0 experiments now underway in this county. At the Dyess colony southwest of Wilson several hundred farm families, carefully chosen for the characteristics that arc sup- 'posed to help them succeed, arc being launched upon careers as' owner-operators of small farms under conditions that in many respects nre exceedingly favorable. A few miles away, on the Mississippi comity rehabilitation farm, another group of farm families, chosen largely from those.unable lo lind crop localions,in this county last year, have been established as share tenants. They will have certain special advantages in the way; of low inlercsl charges on furnish accounts, supervision by an agricultural expert, and presumably belter than'average equipment, but in general th c fan,, w ;\\ be- operated as a business proposition and the lot of the tenants will not be greatly different from that of tenants on a well conducted privately owned cotton farm. OUT OUR WAY THS.YQOT THIS MORMING, AMD ASKED ME IP THEY COULD COME HERB AND UIVE WITH US FOR A WHILE— SO, WHAT COULD 1 SAY? 1 HATE TO SEE HER LEAVE HOM HE'S A NICE These toiiHnlii, however, will be encour- ligpd to acquire toolfi and livestock of tlieir own and tliey will receive insLvue- U0n in farm manufe r eiiieiit ilcHit'iied to enable them to become 'managing teu- ?ut» ov, in time, owuoi'-opci'jitors. Will tlio colony |»!nii or ithe re- lidbiliUitiyn r«rm plan proilucc thc best results in the long nin? That re- mnlus to be seen. Certniuly llie odds would .seem to favor the hand-picked and liberally assisted i-t'sklenls of the colony. Uul \vo nre inclined to the belief that for any extensive program of converting tenants into independent farmers the rehabilitation 1'iirni idea is the sounder. Certainly it is the mure economical. Income Tax Publicity The fiiHH and furore in and out of congress, over thu "pink slip" publicity clause of (he federal income tax !ft«- hardly seem justified by the im- portiniee of the question. There is no more reason why the amount of a man's income should be guarded «s a sacred secret than for affording similar protection for llie value of lij s household goods or other property which he is universally required to make a matter of public record for tax purposes. On the other hand there is little reason to believe that to miikc income tax records available' to public inspection would accomplish much more toward ending income tax evasion limn (lie availability of property assessment figures has toward ending property lax evasimi.
