The South Won't Object Whatever inclination there may have been in the South to criticize President Hoover's war debt suspension proposal probably vanished with yesterday's advance in the-cotton market. The mere suggestion of a plan to help put Cier- many back on her economic fuel added something like. $'15,000,000 to the value of an average American cotlon crop. Actual consummation of the debt plan ought to help a good deal more. It must be understood, of course, that the Hoover projiosal involves the sacrifice on the part of this country, for a year at least, of §2-1(5,000,000, which is no small change. Yesterday's response on various security and coni- • modity markets, however, indicated that we would get our money back promptly and with interest. It is well to keep in mind that gold and credits are no more than media of exchange. We might concentrate all the gold in the world in this country .- and enjoy even less, of actual prosperity than is now our pcrtiuU It is really something approaching such a situation that} is at the bottom of our troubles now. There is, no lack of money in the United States today. The difficulty is that not enough of it is in the hands of potential buyers of the products of American industry and agriculture. , We have prosperity when money cir- quisles, when goods are bought and void. The 'wfiy^rVobtam that situation • is to release some of the groat accumulations of credit in this country that are now lying idle or begging for employment at ridiculously low interest rates. By granting a suspension of' European debt obligations we will, in effect, put money into the hands of prospective European customers for American products. The same result, in even greater degree, could be accomplished by modification of our present tariff which, by making it difficult for Europe to sell to us, makes it difficult for Europe to obtain the money with which to buy from us. indulged in by the country's most fervent conservatives. This may not sound like good sense, but it is entirely logical. A little consideration of the problems of the clay makes it clear. Governor Ritchie of Maryland, for instance, remarks that "yim. cannot have from live to eight million people wanting work and unable to get it without knowing that this constitutes a challenge to our social order and that it is the strongest argument for communism unless it is solved." And Dean Wallace I). Dunham of the Harvard School of Business Administration says bluntly: "Capitalism is on trial and upon this trial may depend, the whole future of western civilization. The justification olj capitalism is ell'iciency. Our present .situation is a major breakdown." Two prominent men thus stale the issue. What is, going to happenV Obviously, it is the iron-ribbed conservative who has the greatest stake in the existing social and economic order. H is lie who can be counted on lo take the strongest measure.-; to prevent a change in the direction of communism or socialism. How is he going to do it? Not, in the long run, by chanting over and over again the wearisome refrain that "conditions are fundamentally sound." Not by calling out the police to club the heads of dissatisfied men who can't get the jobs they want. Not by insisting that business always has and always must run in cycles. lie will do it, eventually, by making, such changes in the machinery of production and distribution as will cn- : sure to the ordinary men a chance to have steady, work at good pay throughout his lifetime. He will do it that way because, there is no other way on enrth of idoing M). To do that will take some very radical measures. The intelligent conservatives will not shrink .from thorn. He will- adopt them because he will reat- iy.e that there is no .other way of saving the form of society that he wants to preserve. Ho will become a radical, as a matter of fact, to preserve and justify his conservatism. If he doesn't the things hej is &o anxious to conserve are very apt to gel knocked out from under him. —Bruce Cation.
