Our School Finances Objection to the plan to raise $10,000 by private subscription to insure full term operation of the Blythcville school system next year has been made on the ground that it provides no solution to tlui problem, but would leave the necessity of raising a similar or larger fund the year following ami indefinitely thereafter. This objection has not come from those merely looking for an excuse to refuse to bear their part of fi public burden, but from men who recognize that the financial difficulties of our schools will never be eliminated until fundamental defects in our taxation and assessment methods are cured. There is nothing to prevent our subscribing the money to meet next year's deficit, while at the same time taking the necessary steps to insure adequate tax revenues' for future years, but if, as opponents of the subscription plan declare, nothing but actual closing of the schools can arouso the public to the necessity of equalizing assessments and possibly scaling them upward, then tlic sooner that crisis is readied and passed the better off we will be. ' of our economic structure which the abnormal activity cssc-nlial to a great war always involves, and which beyond doubt has been largely rcsiwnsible for the present unsettled condition of'bus- iness in this country and throughout the world. It is not that eilher military •expenditures or the effects of Iho war are fundamental in I lie present situation. It goes much deeper—so much deeper that some economists see in the waste of war the only possibility of the kind of prosperity this country enjoyed in the decade recently ended. It is desirable to eliminate the waste of war and of preparation for war. Hut to enjoy the benefits which such saving should bring we must also free our economic system fiom dependence upon tho stimulation of destruction and waste for the activity that means prosperity. SIDE GLANCES By George Clark Peace and Prosperity In urging curlnilmenl of iinnnmenU as part of a program for the restoration of prosperity President Hoover, it is pointed out by the Arkansas Gazette, fails to consider that, so far at least as this.country is concerned, the bunion of preparation for possible future wars is extremely light compared to that of paying the bill for past wars. A world wide program of arms limitation, says the Gazette, might permit us to cut as much as §400,000,000 from the $820,000,000 war and navy department estimate for 1032, but would afford no relief at sill from the §1,802,033,000 chargeable to the military activities of the past. Nevertheless the president is on sound ground. Disarmament implies peace. We may not be able to cure our present troubles by cutting down military expenditures, but if we can avoid wav in the future we will avoid not only future debt and pension burdens, but will also escape the disruption Cotton Coiisun iplioii-Coiiiicious Tin 1 movement (o popularize umi promote tlic use o( cotton In tlie South h rapidly .spreading. Five hundred cotton carnivals me to be lield In various Southern cities In (lie next several weeks, according to n report from the "Wear Cotton" headtmarlcrs ill (iiulouLi, N. C., where the flrst of these festivals Mas held this spring. "Wear Cotton Campaigns" nre yalnlng In ln- vor and are a move In Ihc right direction to make the South cotton consumption-conscious. In the past tho South has put all Its thought ami eirorl Into cotton .prodif.tlon. Profilnble production requires an sdcmiatc market. Cotton dress goods, cotton for household us?, for Industrial purposes, for packaging tin:l wrapping commodities, and col Ion coveiiug in place of jute for the cotton tale need to be popularized nml more widely used by Southern people. Containers lor fertilizer, cottonseed menl, Hour, sugar, potatoes, feedstuff, cement, and practically every sacked commodity the Southern farmer buys should lie ol cotton. As the Manufacturers Record has repeatedly emphasized, the. Southern cotton farmer Is himself most derelict.; lie continues to employ Jute Lagging from India lo bale the cotton he grows. H cotton were used In place of nil the jute Imported Into the United Slates, It Is estimated thnt domestic cotton consumption would be increased by at least 3,000,OW bales a year. The consideration of what such an increase in consumption would mean In raising the level of cotton prices, visualizes the direct benefit to every cotton grower and to the South at lurge. Cotton bags for collonscrd meal would add 50,000 bales annually to cotton consumption, and commercial fertilizer used In tlic South would require another 100,000 bales. The Augusta Chronicle paints out thai sugar —one of the principal crops in the Oulf Stales- Is now sold In cotton sacks from five pounds up, and one prominent sugar refinery In the South is said lo consume 50.000,000 yards of cotton cloth a year tor this purpose. The chronicle feels Iliat every cotton manufacturer, banker, cotton dealer, merchant, and the southern IH;Ople generally should more seriously enter into the movement to promote the use cf collon. Augusta Is to stapj a "Wear More Colton Campaign" the week beginning May 18. Tu the past, cotton manuraclurcrs have done practically nothing toward advertising their product. They have largely depended on others to create business for Oiem. while competitive products were being widely advertised and their use enormously Increased. We believe the time Is opportune for Southern cotton mills (o conduct an aggressive and intelligent advertising • campaign to create a greater demand throughout the country for cotton goods. —Manufacturers Record.
