The Greatest Need Is For :Better Housing It. is reported in Washington tluit the huge federal public works program is going to get another shot in the avm. All the §3,300,000,000 f.uul originally Voted for this program will be silloltud by Jan. 1. It is doing ll:c recovery effort a grejit deal of good, but it be- gins'to look as if there is jiot quito enough of it. So now it is expecli'il that the administration will boost it lo a total of $5,000,000,000. This being so, the next t|iiestion to decide is, for what shall the money be used? • • • We certainly need few more public buildings, such as postolVicos arid courthouses. Highways and waterways re- n luigu slice from the original iJrogrnm: So did naval construction, i There remain's,'however, one lickl in which almost unlimited sums could be ijs«l properly; a field in which money spent'not only revives industry and •puts men to work, but erects a sound- ,dt and safer foundation for nil American society. » « » This, of cowse, is trw lidd of housing. There arc in American cities today somu 9,000,000 homes that belong in or close to the sluiji classification. No program that wt could linanc,c now -could replace all of them with decent .dwellings, but jt is-at least ...-.evident that we cannot take too big a bite for tlie s&c of the problem involved. '. ' These 0,000,000 slum home* present a job that the nation coulcl work on for years. • •» * Now, spending money on housing is one of the most direct of all ways to promote a business revival. It puts a great many men to work, it restores realty values, it stimulates trade in many basic raw materials and semi- finished industries. If v/e want lo get back to prosperity, the more money we .pour into slum clearance plans, the better. Yet that is only half of it.' Even in prosperous timos, money put into slum clearance would be money well spent. It is hard to build a healthy society when a large part of the society is housed unhealthfully. Slums breed crime, disease, vice, and OUT OUK WAY poor citizenship generally. They cost us.inflnitejy more than the cost-of. replacing them, They are perhaps the greatest single drag on democracy's feet. If the public works fund IK to he boosted, the administration will do well to pour every dime available into a housing program. Politics to Economics There is something deeply interesting about the reorganisation of the governmental structure which Mussolini is reported to be preparing for Italy. Instead of a Chamber of Deputies, it is said, Italy will Imvc a sort of parliament containing delegate." representing commerce, agriculture, and industry throughout the country, grouped in some 50 "guilds." Political representation practically will cense, to be replaced by economic representation! It is worth remembering that .someone ironically suggested this for the United States a generation ago, tirging that we have senators representing , coal, iron, corn, wheat, oil, and so on. the idea really isn't altogether It will be interesting to see what And silly. Mussolini does with it. All Arkansas Should Get "A • . Crop Ahead" Tlio 40 per cent reduction in ncrc:igc called for by (He government proirnm will inukc 1,300,000 acres of Arkansas cotton land Idle next year—us cotton" land. Dan H. Otis, director ot the Agricultural Commission of the American Bankers Association, scc.s In Hut prospect "an extraordinary opportunity" lo put Arkansas on a diversified, llve-at-home tanning basis. T. Roy Raid, assistant director in charge of the state Agricultural Extension Service, tells of Inlklng recently with a negro tanner who Is "a, crop ahead Instead of a crop behind" and intends to kcbp that way. Gelling "a Crop behind" accounts for a lot of economic grief in (lie cotlou belt, it simply isn'1 business, never has been business, and never will be business, lo make n cro|> on credit. or borrowed money, be forced to sell lo pay off (lie ncciiimil.itori debt, nticl then begin borrowing nil over iigaln against a crop for whlcli the ground Isn't even plowed and whose yield an<l value when gnthjrcd are a pure gamble. The farmer who gets "a crop ahead" Is his own master. He is In- a position .to plan nlicucl, what, funds he Ims to- the best advantage, rotate his crops, Improve his soil nnd really manage his affairs. Aim llvc-nt-homc farming is the stralghtcst road to crop-ahead farming, because It assures the (arm family of a living and permits a minimum of cash outlays. The family that has !o buy everything with cotton money exposes itself lo every possible economic mischance that can come Its way. —Arkansas Dazette.
