But it must be admitted that the'USES not only got there first but is the logical bureau to provide veterans with advisory service. The GI Bill of Bights is a federal law and it is logical that a federal bureau should interpret it and advise with regard to it. The USES is the channel through which the veteran will look for a Job if he can't find, one elsewhere, and it is logical that he should seek advice with regard to his rights at the same place where he will seek a job which may be based on those right,s. The Kansas Veterans Administration may have to look pretty hard to find anjthing to do which i-sn't already being done by someone else.

It authorizes the governor to appoint a board of eight veterans which, with tHe salaried director, will determine the policies and plan.s for the administration (if veterans affairs. "It is not intended or expected that the state organization wil^ duplicate in any way the work of the federal veterans bureau," writes the Kansas City Star's Topeka corres- jwndent.

Judges of the contest finally chose this one: •Democracy is that form of government instituted among men for the preservation of freedom, equal- itv. justice and humanitv for all its members." Rolla Clymer prefers the entry of Justice John S. Dawson: "Democracy is a .system of gov- ern-ment maintained by an enlightened citizen.ship who choose their lawmakers and their chief executive for limited terms, and where the people enjoy freedom of speech, THg leiA' REQiSTfiR, TUESDA ^TirvrimrG.

Under the new .set-up, lola will havB a full time office of its own with a full time veterans representative in charge. The la;st time I was in Topeka I had occasion to check this specifically with the state div^ector of the USES. He said such an office would be established in lola in two or three months, just as' soon as men could be found and trained for this and similar jobs throughout the state. 4 e • If everv tawn in Kansas the size of lola and larger is to have one or more USES veterans representatives to advise the returnitig servicemen of all their right.s—:what will the veterans bureau do?

They made a variety of articles, incluc.- ing beaver hats, shoe , wagons, harness, ^ simple furniture . small household articles. The blacksmiths 'lanimered out nails and horseshoe., and some of them made such farm implements as hoes, rakes and plows. It was an age of craftsmen instead of machines; mass production was still to come. \ These skilled workers were no'l all free \vhite men. Among them were mar^y Negro slaves who had been trained in craftsmanship. One of these Negro artisan.,, not in Augu^a but in Charleston, made grilled iron work o' cuch grace and beauty that gateways made by him still sell at fancy pric&. The cotton mill .ra did not begin until the middle of the 19th century. The large slave plantations produced nearly everything that wa_ actually needed by those who worked on them. On Harve:' Earle's- Falrviev- plantation, near Augusta, there wer^ 65 slaves, including ,both young and old; also two white overseer with their familier. Six of the Negro women spent 11 their time in the spinning an ' weaving .^hed; the,' spun the cotton fiber and then wove i' into cloth. A the slaves' garments .were mad chiefly o' cotton cloth, there wa littl necessity to'buy them clothing. I;, the shoe shop ;a veteran shoemaker— an old Negro with white hair— worked steadily making th rough shoes that the Negroes wore in thi. winter:" time. During the summer they went barefoot. All the rough unpainted furniture of the Negro cabins was made in the plantation I Eight hundred dollars a year was carpenter shop. i looked upon as high wages indeed Besides cotton, as the chief crop, jfor an overseer. Besides h:,had his the plantation also produced tobacco, cor , sugar, peaches _nd a variety o: vegetable:. The cotton ji-op occupied about half of the tillable soil, and to'oacco was cultivated in about one-half of the i-e- mainder. Sugar cane was grown for th .sole purpose o' providing molasses for tht Negroes \ the place, anu corn t furnish meal. Ther,. was :io equipment at Knir- viev.' for making sugar. 1 tlie molasses was produced by boiling th cane juice. » * * TT was generally believed at that •'- time, by plantation owner-: and over.seers, that a Negi larni hand in th>. course of ; day's labor would accomplish about two- thirdi, as inuch a white man put to th sam'- task. generalization wai open to many exceptions, for ther^ were great differences in th energy, intelligence, and will- ingnesr of the Negroe;;. The plantation overseers were always white men. As class they were coarse, illiterate and entirely lacking A\ th^ courtly graces. They wc^re slave driver.., but this does not mean that they were all cruel, or that they mistreated tlie Negroes in their charge. The letters ..nd records of 'he slavery era jhow that many plantation owners would -ot permit their Negroes to be cruelly treated in any circumstances whatever. On the other hand, there are records of sadistic slave owners and brutal overseers who dro\e their people to work under the lash and half-starved them, but owners of slaves who treated them cruelly, or permitted their overseers to do it, were almost invariably ostracized by their neighbors. Overseers were never considered "gentlemen," within the old- time Southern meaning of that term. Their pay was astonishingly low in view of the great responsibility placed on their shoulders. house rent free, aod most of .his food cost nothing. From eight hundred dollars as the top. the scale of pay rah down to about three hundred. For an average good overseer the standard was four hundred dollars a year. 'T'HE large plantations were few ^ in number as conipared to the whole agricultural industry. About nine-tenths of the white cultivators of the .soil consisted .f poor farmers who owned no slav es. Tliey lived on their small -farms, and cultivated them with the help of their families. These poor whites occupied tlie least productive Ijind; in every section of the South the wealthy plantation owners liad crowded the small farmers out of the rich and fertile land near the rivers and creeks. The poor cotton growers lived chiefly among the semi-barren hills-— hence the name "hillbilly"—and endeavored to make a living from soil whicli was unsuitable for profitable farming. These poverty-stricken whites had to compete with slave labor, with Negro farm hands who received no wages at all. As a result they were eventually pulled down to the Negro's economic level. Another result was the degradation of labor in the minds of the upper classes. Gentlemen did no't plow or hoe for a living, but made others work for them, so in the course of time men who worked v.itli their hands on land or in shops or factories became the objects of a social contempt, for they were doing what slaves were forced to do. This was the most deplorable result of the Southern slave civilization, and it was not lived down for many years. NEXT: FOUR YOUNG MEN IN THE GOLD RUSH.
