Talking on "Our Unemployment Problem," Mrs. W. W. Remington addressed the Woman's club current events department at its last meeting of the season Wednesday afternoon at the Y. W. C. A. "Economic insufficiency has caused Germany, Italy and other countries of the world to spend enormous sums of money, more than their people can bear for armaments," she said in opening her talk. "They: are afraid the time will come when they cannot procure sufficient supplies and will have to fight for them. It is necessary to have access to raw materials. We could get along without the things we import. Depressed Areas. ' "Our president says that one- third of the population of this country is ill housed, ill clothed and-undernourished. We have four depressed areas--the share-cropper south, the . Appalachian coal region, northern Michigan, Wis- .consiri .and ; Mirinesota and. the Dakotas, and the great dust bowl of the west. "There is nothing in Europe more depressing or unfit for living than ihe homes of the southern share-croppers. They have been Americans' for generations. They work hard, but they hav,e nothing at the end of the year. They are really serfs and that is not the American way of life. Tenancy Problem. "It is an anomaly that a desire for freedom and homes of their own once brought persons to America where now we have a tenancy problem. Spain is in the dy- 1 ing struggle of feudalism and there might be such a struggle in Mexico. In the Appalachian coal area there is from 40 to 60 per cent tenancy. .The tenancy problem in the northern parts of Michigan, Wisconsin, Minnesota and the Dakotas is alarming. In some of the southern counties of Minnesota there is 40 per cent tenancy. "Share-cropping inculcates the worst kind of citizenship. There is no use of doing anything on the farms, because they are leased from year to year. -Now the old south cannot compete in cotton raising with Brazil, Egypt and Ethiopia It has been suggested that_these improvident, shiftless share-croppers be moved He- settlement looks good on paper, but where would these seven million persons be moved? Loft in Debt. "Lending money to them only impoverishes in the end. It does not cure the cause and it leaves them in debt. The landlord and not the share-cropper lias benefited by the government's policy so far. Persons living in the Appalachian coal area left to go to the cities when the call came for labor. During the depression they had to go back. They are not trained to do skilled work in factories. They have no education. "There have always been unemployed persons, averaging about 10 per cent of the population. They used to be cared for by churches, clubs and benevolent societies. They are on the relief AND HOW SHE LEARNEO A MEW : t WASHING SECRET THAT SAVED HOURS t OF PKUDGERY ...AND i err so fjzzr WHEN i SCRUB CLOTHES.

There must be a way to help these people to help themselves." Lack of Foresight. Mrs. Remington spoke of the lack of foresight in the cutting down of forests and ploughing up o£ lands in the dust bowl and told of the way the - Scandinavian countries have made a great asset of what others would call a misfortune, their forests. Sketching the "history of Denmark, Mrs. Remington said that its people were homogeneous and that up to the middle of the nine-- tcenth century, they had serfdom. Because Denmark was on the wrong side in the Napoleonic wars, it lost Norway to Sweden. Later Germany took Schleswig- Holstein. The farmers of the country were poor and illiterate anci there was from 75 to 80 per cent tenancy. ' · Progress in Denmark. The speaker spoke of the progress made in the education o£ the people, the development of a proprietary interest in the land and the growth of co-operatives in Denmark. "Denmark has established the finest system of democracy, balanced its budget, educated its people so that there is only two one thousandths of one per cent illiteracy in Denmark," she said. "Denmark doesn't spend its money for armaments. She knows that it would not do any good." = "That is the way we must help the share-cropper south. It is not too excessive to demand of the government that teachers be sent there to arouse a lively curiosity ·about learning. They could do what Denmark, Norway and Sweden have done. Something is wrong with .American life or we would have what we came to America to find--a free democratic .way ' ' '; ( Distribute Goods. " " ,!'We-must lea'rn how to distribute the goods of the earth," Mrs. Bem- mgton said and told of the danger of another war. She discussed-the neutrality policy and said that a neutrality .policy may become the agency of war. Commenting on the visit of Sir Walter Hunciman to the United States, Mrs. Remington said that it is unwise to prejudice our actions in case of war in advance of the war. "England and America are derelict in their duty-if they fail to set up a new conception of the distribution of the world's goods and a new idea of law," she said and made a plea for an international court of law. On Supreme Court. In concluding her talk, Mrs. Remington spoke of the proposal to change the supreme' court and said that the farmers and laborers who follow leaders, who ride around in Rolls-Royces and- occupy the whole top floors of hotels, and vote at their behest will wish someday that they had a judiciary to protect their rights." A period for questions followed the lecture. Mrs. Remington recommended for reading, "Denmark, the Co-operative Way," and "Sweden, the Middle Way." Preceding her talk to the current events department, Mrs. Remington made a 15 minute address on world peace over KGLO. Mrs. Remington, whose home is at 2740 Harriet avenue, Minneapolis, will leave June · 18 on the Duchess of York to conduct a tour of Europe. She is making up a party of travelers now and persons who are interested may write to her .concerning it. . --o-Roy Peyton Speaker at W.C.T.U. Session Conducted at Y. W. At the W. C. T. TJ. meeting Wednesday afternoon at the Y. W. C.' A.i a talk was given by the Rev. Roy W. Peyton, pastor of the Presbyterian church, who said that "King Alcohol is seated on a throne and the W. C. T. U. is working to unseat him." "The government can in no way eliminate the evil, it is up to the churches," he said. "It is a moPE» and social problem and must be solved by education. Liquor is sold from o selfish motive and if the profit were removed, it would not be "solrl."
