Subsistence Farming Wins IVide Favor When the administration set aside ?25,000,000 to experiment on subsistence farnvs, it started something the finish of which is a matter for the .seventh son of a seventh son. None of Uie New Deal's experiments is more interesting than II,is one; few of them have more completely Unpredictable consequences. The fact that the experiment is Ix-ginning to prove enormously popular indicates that we may bump into these consc- • quences a lot sooner than v/e expect. The idea is to set up colonies of small • homes, each surroundc'l by a garden .. sufficient to provide its owner with "/most of his foodstuffs. Occupants of . • such homes would hold jobs in industry ; some would work in coal mines, • - some in factories, and HO on. ' : The jobs would give tbem their income and the gardens wqul:! give them " their food; if an indiwlrinl Flump cut their jobs out from under them, they at.least could keep on eating-.regularly until things picked up again. : ' T » * that's the program. Now it develops that the government is being over• whelmed with a regular flood of demands for subsistence farms. The director of the project already has received applications which, if granted, would run the cost of the experiment up to $4,000,000,000. Letters are coming-in at) the-rate of JOOO a day. Here is pathetically eloquent testimony to the forgotten man's fear of insecurity, and also to his dislike ,of ordinary urban life. Furthermore, it is a pretty fair indication liuit there will he plenty of sentiment in Congress in - favor of extending the scope of the whole project. These applicants are voters; you can depend on it that their congressmen are hearing from them. • » • We are likely, then, to hear more rather than less of tho subsistence farm idea in the future. And it is high time for us to figure onl just where such a program would lead us if it were expanded greatly. Would it—as some critics say—establish an American peasantry? Would it depress industrial wages and cut agriculture's markets? Would it solidify the population in such wav to diminish the fluidity of labor to a disastrous extent? It might do all Urines; it might do none of them. It is up to us to find out. The best way lo-fiiM out is tu try it and .sec; and that scorns to he just what we aru going to do—jn a larger .scale than any of us had expected. —Ur'ico Catton.
