Poe- the fresh air of spaces are much bet- ter off than city folks. They live with plenty of elbow room; they ,are not poisoned by gases, nor are they deafened, physically and spiritually, by the din of traffic. We have a false situation in this land today; our cities are over- populated, and the countryside is gradually being exacuated. What will be the result? Inevitably an insufficient food production and a decrease of the total population. Thus, our nation is in the way of committing suicide. It is being de- stroyed at its roots, for the cities must draw their vitality and life- giving sap from the soil. No pros- perity can be envisaged when our farms are too few or are insuf- liciently manned. Urban grand- eur, comfort and glamour have no lasting or strengthening qual- ities. Unless our towns are sup- ported and fed by flourishing agricultural industry, our nation's future is not promising. We will raise pale-faced, flat- chested generations, and--what is worse---there will not be enough of them to continue our race in its present numerical strength. The ratio for survival is four to a family. We barely make that now. If it were not for the coun- try home, we would already fall dangerously below this required average.

(E)--When the National Consumers League made pub- lic here this week a letter signed by 80 nationally-known women leaders opposin the so-called Equal Rights Amendment to the Con- stitution, Miss Elizabeth Magee, general secretary of the League, called the proposed Amendment "a gold brick that may glitter, but would hurt if it hit." The signers of the letter, it was D. Roosevelt, vIiss Mary Anderson economy is to be placed on a sound basis, more thought and study must be given to the eco- nomic plight of the farmer--par- ticularly the small one. The ten- ant system should be cured; the miserable share-cropper, un- worthy of our civilization, must be abolished. To restore man's dignity on the soil, our small vas- sal empires of immense planta- tions and ranches of county size, with their concomitant abuses of social justice and their lack of security and human independence, must be changed. , This can be done only by gov- ernmental financing and develop- ment. The slaves of the soil to- day, who work somewhat inde- pendently, have not enough money to pay for the fertilizer for next year's crop. Farm prices should be regulated, and the products of the soil should be intelligently raised and marketed, so that the producer has at least a little more than a gambler's chance to work out a decent living for his family. The rehabilitation problem after the current war will be a tremend- ous task, one which will demand the best of brains and billions of federal funds. But the expendi- ture of both will be eminently logical, for it will mean a rich human return of money invested; thousands of citizens made healthy, happy and independent. It will strengthen the nation physically and morally, and it will make the American people the sturdiest race in the world. As soon as life on the farm is made decent and inviting, as far as the essentials of life are con- cerned, the back-to-the-farm slo- gan will become popular--but not before that., Funny, but blunt people usually make the most cutting remarks.- Joseph J'.

Anderson, of the national Y.W.C.A. staff, and Mrs. Carrie Chapman Catt. "We oppose the so-called 'Equal Rights Amendment,'" the letter says, "because it disregards the fact that while men and women are equal in right they are not identical in economic or in phy- sical capacity. "Because it would imperil hard-won legislation enacted to safeguard women as homemakers and mothers, including laws regu- lating hours, employment of young girls, exposure to indus- trial substances and processes which are particularly hazardous to women--laws which working women themselves do not wish to lose.. "Because while risking these safeguards it would not redress the major inequalities persisting today, not only in professional and technical fields of training and practice, since these are, in the main, matters of tradition and custom rather than of law. "Because this proposal, if en- acted, would confuse and compli- cate essential progress toward higher standards of safety and security for all workers--men as well as women."

War Has Placed Whole Educational System On Trial Brooklyn. (E) -- Asserting that our whole system of education has been placed on trial by the war, nd that the modern school and especially the modern college must accept some responsibility for the kind of soldier who s in the field today, the Rev. Dr. Cyril F. Meyer, C.M., Dean of St. John's College St. John's University, told an audience last night that the whole Catholic philosophy of edu- cation is opposed to, the modern extravagance of letting the child learn by following the direction of his own tastes and desires. The Dean also assured his hear- ers that "St. John's convinced of the value of the Liberal Arts edu- cation, intends to keep the Liberal Arts courses upon as long as there are any civilians to attend them." Dr. Meyer spoke at commence- ment exercises of the college when for the second time since the en- try of the United States into the war, baccalaureate degrees were conferred at the close of the sum- mer session.
