A Labot Surplus Soiimijotiy 'down ;il Liltlo Rock lias hail Ihu briifhl idea thai rccciil (roubles involving farm labor i' 1 Poiiisolt county li;ivo .sonic rol.ition io (lie ISiiiiUhoiul cotton control act. Hence a resolution appenlin;; for tax exemption of one or two bales of wtcli 1'iirni tenant's cotton crop. There is a reliitioii between the production control program ami the I'oin- scll county Kituiiticm, btit a one or two bale exemption from the Unnklioiul law lax is not goiiuT to reinejy the trouble. • The slate |r-f all'air.s in .1'oinselt county, clili'ers from Unit iu Mississippi county and oilier counties only in tliat in I't-inscll county there' lias been some iilleinpl at organiml prolest; and sonic; loose (tilk by persons ;tp|>:imitly willing ki inalie a bail situation worse by stirring up violence. Pfirtly duo lo the cotton control pi'o- . •iirui'i), partly lo an influx of landless i'annci\s from ilrouth ;\iul poor noil areas, ami partly to the decline of the .-'timber industry there exists in this section an ovci'supvjly of labor. As a result many larjje farm operators lmv<; found it pro/ihible (o tiiru from (lie old share crop system of tt|)or;iUun to farming by day labor. Those, \vlio have stuck to the share crop system have been able to get rid of their less satisfactory tenants willi full assurance of beini; able to find new 1'amilies to replace them. Wagus-l'or day labor on farm.'T'liIivt? been forced (Jb low I'hiit only I ho availnbility of federal relief has enabled many -farm workers to exist during the; slack .seasons. • Naturally tliere is dissatisfaction. Jt is not a tenable situation. And while they may find some temporary advantage in if the majority of land owners know that if i,s a bad state of ali'airs _and.ono that cannot continue indefinitely. But it: : is nut. so easy to find it Restriction of production, for the present at least, seems necessary. And while we have an -admitted surplus of labor here, where else can these people go with prospect of (hiding better conditions? H is not a local problem but part of the great national and world problem of hulam-ing production and consumption in such a way as lo make available lo all who arc willing to earn it a just share, iu Hie plenty ,'(hat our resources and our ability to exploit tliein make possible. Democracy Has Faith in Man's Wisdom Harvard's President James li. Conant (ells n convocation at Amhci'st College that one of the treat, threats to human society today is a revival of "the ever-recurring suspicion of man's creative intelligence." The scholar, .says President Conant, has faith in the human miml—faith in ils ability lo .solve any problem ivliich human association can present. Hccausc of this faith, Ihe scholar fitvoi'K l!)[> freest kind of research in- lo social problems, and the fullest kind of discussion of them—believing, as he does, that human intelligence is capable of limlinj,' Ihu way out if if is just given the chance. lint today a distrust of this capability is growing. Somo people are rising to protest against Ibis kind of free inquiry. They rail for closed minds, as if some ((iie.stion.s were so dangerous thai even to examine them from an unbiased viewpoint were lo court grave danger. * * ' » "The universities and colleges, as focal (joints for speculation and research," says President Consult, "are the subjcel of hostile, criticism, and in at least one country havo sull'erud a devastating prosecution. Man's rust- loss spirit of imiuiry has always been disconcerting to those who demand a final ami uiit'liimgiilg j/iclure of Hie universe." Now air this may. seem rather remote and academic, • to those of us whoso daily routine .is conducted far from the campus. But it i* worth remembering that it is precisely this faith in .man's,.creative intelligence—• this faith which animates every college 'ami university worthy of tin: mime—which w Uiu foundation K(VIK of the ilumouVHtic theory. * : + v ' ' • • In other words, \vu live'-iimlcr a democracy for •exactly.:'the same reason ^ that men like President Conant devote • their lives lo .scholarly research: He- cause we believe that the race has the brains lo find/a way out of its troubles ami (In; collective goud will . to follow such a way once if has found'it. This, viewpoint is not popular ; in.. (he world today. In nation after nation," men have abandoned I his faith and have afkcd to bu led by some autocratic power w'liidt will make all decisions for lliem. Some of lliem have even proclaimed .jubilantly lhat democracy is an out- ot'-date concept, and that only the authoritarian state can survive in the modern world. Kor ourselves,- we still believe in freedom,—freedom in government, in academic research, and in all other forms of social activity. \\'e hold that belief because wu still have confidence in the power of human intelligence! —Bruce Cation.
