Where Is Our r anted American Spirit l<> A man who lisleiv altcntivoly the: lieiit of some of thi: arjrumcnls i'm 1 and Mgiiinst llio rccovury pn>Kr;im hnnlly can help woiidoviiijj,. now :iiul then, if anything has hiippcnwl to Hi" Inulitionui American spirit of courage and determination. According to some iU'KiimiHiU, t"'-' NRA and its allied measures are tlic law and the prophets, and we Khali go down to cluio.s and confusion if we depart from them for an insliinl. According to others, "the NRA is a tragic mistake and nil our cherished institutions are doomed unless we speedily renounce it and gel hack to something else. There is a growing tendency, in other words, to see the whole recovery program in straight blacks and whites; a tendency to look on the mechanics of the elfort, instead of on the spirit back of it, as the all-important thing. * * * Americans were not that way in the past. For generations this country was famous throughout the world for a thing referred to as "tho American spirit." Probably no two people meant precisely the same thing when they referred to this spirit; but in the (main they- meant that indomitable air of determination and optimism which made the nation ready to try anything once — the spirit which, if one program failed, had no hesitation in trying a second, a third, or a fourth until it hit on the winning combination. * • * * That was tho spirit that conquered 'a continent and erected a society which, for all its faults, remains one of th.e line achievements of tho race. And it's a little hard to see why it can't be invoked again today. Suppose the NRA should prove a Hop. Suppose the farm orogram fails; suppose the currency stabilization scheme won't work, or the public works scheme, or the other experiments now being made. What of ilV We l;ave. the determination to succeed. We have shown thai our vast and hetcrogenous people can achieve unity in a time of crms. We have shown that our (lumocratic system can provide swift and f-irceful action OUT OUR WAY when it is needed. Wo have shown that we have the stomach to make drastic experiments. Why must we assume that our salvation stands or falls on the SUCCCSH (or on the abandonment) of one particular plan? We have reaffirmed our common purpose, our strength, and our loyalty. If the old spirit lives, we can he confident of ultimate victory—if not on one road, then on another. In the. Public Cause Madame Kniwline Sdiumaiiii-Ileink fell ill in San Die-go ilic other day, and the news story which told about it added thai "shu was near exhaustion from work in the NRA campaign." And you might know, somehow, that if this gallant old lady suffered from overwork- it would be buc-uise she had been txeiiing hen-ell' in a public cause. That's the kind of person .Mine. Schiirnaim-IIcink is. Americans still can remember how she threw herself into war work. Up and down the land she v,-cnl, using her magnilicciH voice ami her marvelous personality to weld public ."cnlimcnt into a loyal unit. This year she has been doing the same sort of thing—giving of herself, without stint, at the call of her country. That she may have tho speediest sort of recovery will be (he hope of every American. This hncl holds few liner or more lovable characters than Mine. SclHimann-lIeink. Money to Farmers The first government checks to he paid out under the AAA wheat allot-, ment plan went to Monona county, Iowa, and resulted in (he paying of ?52,000 to some '185 farmers. Sonic of Hie fanners promptly deposited their money in the hank—one man deposited 510-12—and others hurried about nearby towns paying bills, settling taxes and mortgages, and buying all sorts of things that they'nceVled, Arr.l a person is moved to wonder just, how popular t|io farm strike will be in that .particular county hereafter. Whatever may be the faults" of the AAA program, (and it seems to have plenty, Heaven knows), it hardly can fail to have a good effect if it pumps money into very many counties on this scale. In relieving the dire economic pressure that brought about the farm strike, it might prove of incalculable value. 11, SIDE GLANCES By George Clark BLYTHEVILLE 10 YEARS AGO Prom ihe (lies at the Blylfaevlllf Daily Courier Saturday, -N'uv. 10, 10?3.
