All Is Not the Solution, Tugwell Declares ENGLAND, Ark., Nov. 20 (UP1 . —Speaking to several hundred farm owners,-planters and tenant farmers; this' afternoon, Resettlement Administrator Rexford G. Tugwell said the solution of the tenancy problem would have to be made by the various states as well as lhe federal government. Taking a part, in the dedication ceremonies at the administration's Wright plantation, project hear here, during which five of the small farm homes and surrounding acreage .were opened, the ad-. niinJstrator, who will soon leave his office, predicted that similar projects would be undertaken, after the first . ones had proved successful. . ' '••!-. "This project represents one contribution of the Resettlement Administration to the solution:' of '• a problem. That problem is the j relationship of men to their land. \What .we want—what -we have 'always wanted—is that our coun-: try people may be so -establishedi that their security in (possession! is put beyond question and. that their incomes are adequate to decent living and the raising of Wealthy families," Tugwell said Tenancy Not Whole Problem "That these aims have not been realized u"der present arrange nients I do not haie to prove The evidence exist? all around us That the solution n easy or simple no one believes who has given the question more than ele mentary s'udy Yet this project , is evidence that w> have passed jfhf Idlscussion ; sta»a .and arrived at' the trial of one houe- fur—methotf ' "On these broad productive fields of Delta land new homesteads are rising on which men and their families mil be gnen the traditionally American oppor tumties hitherto denied them There are others under way m tills region, and many more scattered .throughout ' the land — enough, .at least, so that we-shall know from their operation how this.. solution works. "We sometimes , speak of the problem which is represented here as that of 'tenancy'. It is true that we are. all of us dissatisfied with . the. private tenancy system In America. But the problem is broader than that. Some tenants are Well off as they are A, good landlord often : furnishes the direction and the credit necessary to men of less initiative or ability to manage an enterprise or .who have no collateral to offer the furnisher of credit. Some owners of farms are very badly off. . Guidance Essential "The process of going' into uebt, mortgaging the land and ultimate dispossession is all too familiar to all of us. it has gradually become apparent that many owners are -worse off than the tenants who are so much talked about. Then, too, in many parts of the country there ; are vast armies of farm laborers whos» . -welfare must be thought of. And these armies, we know, are Increasing as agriculture gradually succumbs to mechanization. A rounded program for the better- Dr. E. W.

Stock Market Advance May Slow Up But Long Pull'Prospect Is Good I!V ROGER W. BABSON Copyright . I>y United Press Current headlines flash the news that the country Is being 'swept by n wave of dividend distributions, bonuses and wage-increases. These extra disbursements are swelling lo such vast totals that people arc beginning to ask themselves some serious questions. Is todny's post-election boom in stccks and business Justified? The answer depends wholly upon your viewpoint. If you are thinking of lhe long pull the answer Is yes. According to fundamental statistics business has Just returned to normal .volume. Today we are Just on (he threshold of-a period or business expansion. It is even ix>ssible that during this period of gocd limes we shall exceed the peak volumes of business activity recorded in 1929. Although the stock market, for the long pull should work top to higher levels, if has already scored some sharp advances. From now on tho advance In stock prices will be more selective. With such a sharp spurt In the sleek market it Is only logical to look for some temporary set-back.
