The Birth Control Plan Officials in the Mexican .state of Vera Crux are drafting ;i new law ileul- ing with bii'lh control, ainl jiulging from advance reports they seem tu lie preparing one of the most fantastic invasions of per.-otial privacy ever . tried. Under the tentative draft, parents wishing to have children would have to appear before a state board, which would inquire into the size ol' the family, the health of the prospective parents and their ability to raise and educate their children. A system of penalties would be provided for people who had children in defiance of the state hoard's rulings. This would almost seem to be the reduclio ad absunlimi of the birth control argument. However much one may agree, in theory, with the proposition thai the race has a right to put a definite check on its own rate and 'manner of increase, it is hard to imagine a state supervision of family life- as this proposal involves. 7 he Real Curse of Poverty '• American newspapers have seldom carried a stranger or more pathetic story than the one they drew out of Pottsville, Pa., recently. - This story was a little one-paragraph affair about the life and death of John. Connor. Connor was born 69 years ago in the county poorhouse. He lived there all of his life, of his own choice. When he was little he was sent to school, but ' the other children jeered at him for being a pauper and he refused to continue; when he'became of age he begged poorhouse authorities to let him atay in the fjnly home he had ever known, and he worked the rest of his life on the county farm to pay for his keep. And the other day he "died in the poorhoiise, and now he lias been buried in the potter's field. Things like this, apparently, will happen now and then no matter how prosperous a nation may be or how thoughtfully it tries to take care of its unfortunates. The day when even the most unfortunate of children gets a fair shot at a good life will be the day of the millenium. But the picture which this little OUT OUR WAY story 1 of John Connor creates is enough to UK heartsick. It. tells about a man who had somehow, through the cruel pressure of circumstance, become something less than a man. Life had him beaten before he even knew that he was in a light. Somewhere, in those years of childhood—and how unutterably painful they must have been—something vital was knocked out of him. Those O'J years in the poorhouse were simply the shadow of a life, the thin and distorted reflection of human existence as it ought to be. And there, in the last analysis, is the real tragedy of all poverty. Poverty brings pain and suffering and hunger and deprivation—but those, after all, arc things that, can be endured. They are things some men have even heroically invited. What makes poverty a curse is that it destroys life itself. It reduces its victim to a machine for eating and sleeping. It is a thing that must always stir a thinking man to the profoundest indignation. —liruce Cation. Reorganizing the Railroads It is evident that the Reconstruction Finance Corporation has no intention of carrying fixed railroad charges indefinitely. Appointment-of a receiver for the Frisco road indicates that the government's lending agency is not going to hesitate to demand extensive reorganization of the roads' financial structures' whenever that appears necessary. It had been liopad, in recent \vec-ks, that increases in railroad trafl'ic would make extensive reorganizations of that kind unnecessary; and it is probably quite true that even a' slight continuance of recent industrial gains would take inoit railroads out of the red. Nevertheless, there are cases in which it is (juito evident that a sizable slice of a railroad's business is gone forever; and in such cases, where the financial structure is such that operations can' only be conducted at a loss, some sort uf reorganization seems inevitable. H In Mancliukuo today (here Is a civil government, (he like of which does not exist anywhere in China. • As soon as flint Government overcomes its present disorders, the condition of Manchurian people will be in conspicuous contrast to what prevails throughout China.
