D<jn't Blame The South (The Chattanooga Time,s) A New England governors' study committee says the region's textile industries are moving to the Soutb^ecause of lower wages and biggei work loads. These, it finds, are the "major cause" of a migration which not only pinches at J^ie Easterners' pocketbooks, but is a slap at their pride of industrial ability. It seems to us the committee has picked out a convenient whipping post in these factors which, although existent, arc only two of the combination of economic forces at work for decades. The inevitable result was a redistribution of the nation's productive facilities so father arose about 4 a.m. to start a fire in the stove.
