SelJ-Help Plan Stirs Relief Solution Hope Government oificials and brain Inisl- cfs may devise fancy plans for meeting the depression; hut some of I he smarle-t of (lie relief and rerovcry schemes are those whicli, like Topsy, just (ii'owc-d. TlierR is developing in the United Slates today a new means of helping the jobless worker—a means that .seems to hare boon (he product of no one brain, but to have devdopeil more or less spontaneously, as it were, in rcstwnse lo a definite situation. That is the new kind of employment relief work which is being done in many cities under local mispice-; with the indirect backing of the FKRA. Heporter Willis Thornton recently described il for thi: iicwsjiiiper-reailing public. , j V 4 » •* * It. works out very simply. Stip- puse there is in a town a vac-ant factory- The factory is opened and equipped, tisiiii; federal funds. Unemployed workers who are drawing relief allowances come in anil operate it. The things they make—shirts, shoes, chairs, or whatnot—are for their own use. When they have satisfied their own needs, trades are arranged. A plant in one town makes .shirts, let us .say; in a neighboring town a plant makes pants. The pants-makers are equipped with shirts, and vice versa; a demand for'raw materials is created, men who are.drawing relief allowances feel that they are earning their keep, and none of (he articles produced is allowed lo he sold in competition with producls of regular goin^ concerns. Now here is a scheme which no one person thought of. Instead, it grew up in response to a condition. * » » One of the most illogical developments of the depression was tin: fact that while millions of men needed certain things very badly, the factories that might have satisfied their needs had lo remain idle for luck of customers. This scheme is simply a method of introducing idle cti>tomer.s („ id| c J'l;"ils and, as you might say, letting mil lire take its course. Mot only docs it meet human wants Kremoves from the jobless man the OUT OUR WAY incentive to rise in his wrath and lay hands on the idle factories on his own hook- It may be it clumsy ami imperfect system, hut it <!ocs attnck a sore sjiol which, if Jcfl mitemled, might easily develop into nil incalculably dimerous tumor in our economic body. —Bruce Calton.
