"Peasantry" No Solution It is possibly true, as was doctored in the recent Hoscmvald Fund report oi! farm tenancy in the South, that European peasants have ii happier' and more secure existence than manv share tenants on American cotton farms. But it docs not necessarily follow that the report's recoinmeiidii- tioii of a system of "peasant proprietorship" offers the best or even a workable way out of evils of the system now prevailing in the cotton hull. The peasant proprietor, in Kuropo or elsewhere, is not a particularly efficient economic unit. By wanting little and producing most of that he manages to live comfortably enough if on no very exalted scale. But he contributes little, either as producer or consumer, to the economic life of his country, and in no way, except perhaps as gun fodder in time of war, is he of much use to anyone except himself and his family. The United Slates achieved wealth and strength beyond any country of .the world -'by.' v lh<c\efficient pxploita- tion oC rich mi;tuial resources; Is there no longer opportunity for progress by that method ? There is no better argument for "peasant proprietorship" in the South than (here is for closing the great factories of the North in fnvor of n system of home craftsmanship.." By both the unemployment problem could) be entirely solved and many of the difficulties and injustices of nioderjiOifp. could be eliminated. At the same firnc must of the gains of 150 years of progress would be wiped out, For the less favored 50 per cent of our population the immediate result might appear a change for the belter. But all hope of achieving for any substantial part of our people the kind of life which science and organization havu made •technically possible would be destroyed. It would be a voluntary return to 18th century, conditions. ,11 may be that agricultural workers in the United States today are no better off than they were 150 years ago. But even if that is true it is no '.reason for seeking stability at that level. It is better to light'the thing •.•through in the direction of progress than to acknowledge defeat for the ' sake of some slight alleviation of immediate, hardships. OUTOMWAY B. <AKK.X gOUftUEft NKWS Six Arkansas Congressmen and Fiat Billions Mr. Cravens, Mr. Driver. Mr. Fuller, Mr. McClcllan, Mr. Miller and Mr, Parks: Po you think It Is sound or sale for the Government to Issue $2,000,000,000 In flat money? Tlntt question is wholly dlllcrcnt trom tlio question whelliur the bonus should he paid now Instead or In '1945 when It will be due. When you helped with your votes to pass the Pallium bonus 1)111 In the house you declared In effect thnt it Is nil right for the government, to print $2.000,000,000 In Greenbacks to make this payment. Alone or the Arkansas delegation David I). Terry voted No on Hint proposal. If (he government cim finance ll«lf with a prlntlni; press we need have no concern for Jncrcnslnif nntlonnl debt, Increasing burden of federal taxation and huge treasury deficits. How for arc you six members of ihc Arkansas delegation prepared to BO with the printing press financing li> which yon have committed yourselves to Hie degree of $2.000,000,000 f If Hint is the Way to find $2.000,000.000 for Ihe bomis. why Isn't It nn equally good way to find the $1,880,000,000 President fiooscvclt has asked from congress for his work relief progrnm? Would you. Mr. Cravens, Mr. Driver, Mr. Fuller, Mr. McClclJsrn, Mr. Miller mid Mr. Parks, vote for a HBfiO.OOO.OOO greenback issue for work relief? if not, w hy not? Have you found sonic formula that establishes a dollnllc mathematical dividing line up to which, crccnljnck niianciiiR Is desirable, but beyond which It Is undesirable? The treasury Ls iirepiirliuj lo refund certain Liberty Lonn bonds now approaching maturity. It expects to extend them at n lower Interest rate. But' why ,,ot pay them off with n «rccn- back Issue'of a few billion dollars and save all Interest? where would yon six Arkansas consressmen stnnd on thai proposition?

These arc emergency nuisance Inxes expiring at the end of Iliis year. Bui Ihc treasury says they must be continued becnme It cannot spare the revenue they biliii; In. What, would you say to printing $530.01)0,000 of greenbacks a year In lieu of nil those bothersome miscellaneous taxes? I s there anything which would make it less reasonable to do that than to pay the veterans' bonus by print- Ing nearly four times iut many greenbacks?
