A New Kind of Charily It is a long time since llic newspapers-have printed anything move interesting than the recent story of the minister in Birmingham, Ala., who is conducting a sort of informal trade school to enable unemployed coal miners to 'Support themselves and their families without depending on the mines. A' lot of the coal miners in Alabama will never get their jo'is Iviek, due to changing economic conditions .which vrtll keep many mines permanently closed. So the Rev. William T. Morgan has "made it his business to train these men for other jobs. He got friends to help him buy a farm, on which he is teaching some 200 miners how to become farmers—and, incidentally, enabling them to grow food for their families while they loarn. Other men are being taught new trades—carpentry, unto repairing, poultry husbandry and so on. Eventually, the minister hopes, all of these men will be able to earn good livings, even if the mines never 'reopen. The interesting thing about all this is that here is a minister who has found a new method of approach to the old problem of charity. A great many ministers and a great many church organizations have done noble work in relieving distress among the poor. But this man has tackled the job . from a new angle—-an angle that has;.<niiJM*i«*ht}y t become apparent to the modern work). He has hit upon the simple, obvious fact that .charity, by itself, Is'not chough. . . . •' • : ? You-can give free soup, and free tjeds to'.hungry men in time of depression, but you do not, thereby, do anything ;to get them out ofjlliuir predicament. You stave off starvation, you prevent death by "exposure, and that is very fine; • but the' problem remains as bad as ever, (and when .the next depression' comes around you ^will have it all .to do over again. This Alabama pastor is..trying- to.! make .soup lines, and free lodging houses-unnecessary. Instead of spend- 1 . ing! his time and money in filling empty stomachs, he is trying to make it possible for the possessors of empty stom- OUT OUR WAY nclis to fill them by their own efforts. Eventually, no doubt, all of our relief work will center more and more about that one point. Charily is not enough. Sooner or later it must learn how to prevent distress as well as how to relieve it. — Hntcc Cation. THURSDAY, JUNE 18, 1931 SIDE GLANCES By George Clark Why They Listen The southern Ohio bituminous coal lield.s seem to be following Pennsylvania's lead. There have been .strike* and rumors of strikes, near-riots and threats of violence, Arrests and deportations, until the .situation has become extremely ugly. Complicating everything is the fact that the Communists are making strong efforts to enroll the- miners in their union. Now Communism, admittedly, is tin ugly thing. By and large, Communistic agitator* undoubtedly have done the American workman a great, deal more harm than jjootl. -The appearance of these agitators in the mine lield.s will properly disturb iniuiy Americans. However, it does no one any harm to try to understand things; and when one strike leader remarks casually that thousands of miners are now "living on dandelions" and that many of their children "went barefoot on the coldest day last winter,", one can at least understand why tlie miners are listening to these men. To try to stamp out Communism -in the mine fields without, at the.sanie- time, trying to alleviate the situation that made.the workers wiHing to listen to the Communists will be futile.•':'-.-!•'.. : ^ffSSft Innce al once.

Jusl before his new- biography o: O. Henry appeared, Robert (Bob Davis, the editor who has helped haul many a young writer to th peaks, was .spinning yarns of the "caliph of Bagdad." Davis, so went the stories told over the dinner table, could have had a great fortune in his hiu:;l; today liad he saved any of the O. | l Henry mnnuscrlpls. But editor-like, these invaluable originals went into the wastebaskcl like any other copy and eventually were burned by the janitor. The value of such originals today would be about 5150.000. i "But how was I to knb-.v?" asks Davis. "He was a talented writer and we bought a great deal 'of his work. When It came to writing his biography, T fonnd I had kept no notes and had to spend months trying to recall various conversations." Scores of documents which one day attain great value have been tossed away as carelessly and forever destroyed. . • • • It's Walter O'Keefe, the gagsler of "The Little Sliow," who says that "California may be God's country, but Amy Semple McPherson Is (lie cashier." Walter also opines that, since the Theater Guild is going lo have a Eugene O'Neill play that runs for three nights, the tickets should be handed down from father to son and held In perpetuity. If the father dies before the first- play has ended, his heirs can attend the later shows, with court proceedings held In tlw meantime. GILBERT SWAN. (Copyright, 1931, NBA Service.
