RRIOGEIIEAU AT WILLIAMS
hi tl)v«e luucby aayb, when th«
Nu^is liuve made all men mure than
e\'ei- cunscluus of the evil import of
recu uisr ''inaiiun, the affair at the
College William and f'.u’v has,
disp' lucal and temporary .nreat
tu pus free speech, cheering ele
ments. Miss Marilyn Kaemmerle,
who wrote an editorial in the cam
pus paper neatly and competently
disposing of "white supremacy none-
sense” along with Nazi race theo
ries-. is still in college. Only the
paper, "The Flat Hat," is .suspended,
al'Jiougti the college board of vis
itors has voiced "through disapprov
al and condemnation" of the editor
ial and ordered corrective and dis
ciplinary action. Their reaction re
calls that of some members of con
gress when faced with a somewhat
similar text in a factual pamphlet
called "The Races of Mankina," in
tended for use in Army orientation
courses. Demands of Mr. Andrew
J. May, House Military Affairs
chairman, and others, though low-
pitched in tha intellectual scale,
were shrill enough to effect a work
ing censorship of publications issued
What really calls for ihre^ rous
ing cheers In the Wllilam ai.u Mary
case is the attitude of the student
body, who would have none of such
cenosrship. This is the oldest college
of the South, whose students have
read m their own newspaper an
oracle, completely heretic fr. .,1 the
Southern point of view, suggesting
that the time may come when Ne
groes mingle freely with their fel
lows on the Virginia campus and
even "frarry among us." Do these
itudents, must of whom doublles.s
ii-e trained in the Congressman May
ype of rauction, give vent to emo
tional debt of the hersy'.’ Then do
not. Railier, they rise in true Vol-
tairean spirit, not to defend Miss
Kaemmerle's statement, but pas-
donately to defend her right to say
W’hatever the outcome of their
protest, the stand of this group,of
-ollegians in the South itself, sug
gests really breath-taking advance
the outlook of this new Southern
generation. It is as though u bridge
has been thrown across a formida-
tream while we slept. A
birgehead of tolenancc established
by youth on the other side should
itiistand any counter-atack aging
forces of reaction can muster.

By GEORGE S.BENSON
Pr«eiJ*ni of Hording Colleoe
PROSPERITY in America is the
fni step in the direction of last
ing peace. This prosperity ought
to epfead, as fast as it can, to
other countries. It is in America,
however, where men have the key
to prosperity and the United
States must l§ad the procession
to high living standards through
open competition ... the only
way to obtain a more abundant
life, for ourselves or other:.
At first thought, some people
may not agree that prosperHy
has anything to dn with peace.
But they will convince themselves
if they will think back. Troubles
that built up to this present war
were economic troubles. Hitler
and Mussolini both climbed to
^ power over ruin; ruined fortunes,
♦ ruined hopes,, ruined lives. They
got a following by promising peo
ple relief from misery.
Want is PEOPLE will be pa-
* Serious tient, and content
I f themselves to wait for
solutions to ordinary political
problems, but they will do des-
erate and violent things when
ungry; when (heir families need
food. Prosperity helps to maintain
peace, and fas I said in the first
sentence) prosperity in America
is the fnt step. 'The reason is
plain: Uncle Sam is the whole
world’s best customer.
^ How different the United Sutes
is from other countries! We have
only 7% of the earth's popula
tion and yet we buy 40% of all
the raw materials In the world
from which manufactured g^s
are produced. When wheels art
turning in America, markets get
active to the four corners of the
earth. Our prosperity is the
world’s prosperity and the key to
Post-War FOREIGN lands proa-
Probperity per when they tell
freely in America.
They sell to us when Jobs art
plentiful here, when most Ameri
cans have money to buy what they
want. Jobs-are plentiful and go^
and workers prosper, when b^uii-
ness is expanding. Business ex
pands when investors see possible
returns from investments. They
could see such opportunities now
if they were not afraid of taxes.
Very few busineas men in tha
United States have any idea to
day that they will be able to ex
pand in peace-time pursuita. Most
of them know they can’t afford to
expand if our 95% excess profitf
tax remains in force. It was en
acted as a war emergency meas
ure. I don't think it ought to be
repealed this hour. But we ou'^t
to make certain now that it will
not outlive the war.
Taxes very seldom get smaller
but unless taxes on business get
smaller after the war, investors
would be insane to spend new bil
lions for expansion. Business men
want to plan peacetime sales and
'inploymcnt now. When Congresa
lakes a reasonable tax law to be
come effective with victory, world
peace will have its frit guatantee
of long life. It will have to be
done this vear.
FHA Helps Returning Vets
Get Started As Farmers
Nearly 1,500 wiiite and colored
veterans of World War II are al
ready gelling a sound start m
fanning with loans and other aids
from the Farm Security Admmi-
slration, the U. S. Department of
The veterans received rehabui-
lation loans for the purchase of
livestock and operating equip
ment, or farm ownership loans to
cover the full purchase pri(:e of
a family-sized farm. In addition,
they are receiving guidance from
FSA in their farming operations.
More than 5,600 veterans filed ap
plications for assistance at Farm
Security county offices before the
first of the year.
Department officia.Is point out
that Farm Sectirity loans to vete
rans are made under regular FSA
programs and are not relat^ to
loans made under the provisions
oi the GI Bill of Rights. Most FSA
ijans to veteran^ are made to
those unable to obtain credit from
o^er sources on reasonable terms.
Veterans now in farming repre
sent only a few of those who will
turn to agriculture after the war,
officials say. According to an
Army survey, seven pre(;eni, or
50,000, of the colored enlisted men
\;ho have been approved for FSA
loans is Robert G. Milliner, 33, of
jWelumpka, Alabama, a colored
Ivotoran la^ nix^tlir^)
veteran, (see picture) Milliner re
ceived his medical discharge in
June, 1943, and returned home to
his wife with plans to get start
ed in farming ^ain. He had little _
ing^exjwrience, a few household I Words Fut On Statute
furnish^gs, some chickens, a pig
—and a $22 debt
He tried working in the Wet-
umpka planer mill, out found that
he was unable to put in regular
hours because of his asthmatic
Veteran Milliner know that he
cculd make his way on a farm
once he got started. With that
idea in mind, he a^^lied at the
county Farm Security office for
a loan. FSA surveyed his situa
tion and loaned him $412 to i>ay
of his old debt buy his operating
needs, and provide a subsistance
living for himself and his wile un
til they could harvest their first
Last year the Miliners made a
good crop of cotton, com, sweet
potato^ and hay.
Elijah Kennedy of Kingstree,
South Carolina, u another color
ed veteran of this war who has
been helped by FSA. After his
Army discharge a year and a half
ago, he to Farm Security
for a loan to buy a farm. With the
loan, the 26-year-oId veteran pur
chased the farm that his father
had worked as a tenant for many
I Kennedy says his father want
ed to buy the farm himself, but
was never able to save enough to
make a down payment co it.
When FSA was ab^ to *«■*** a
I'aj'in ownersiiip loan to the fath
er four years ago, tiie senior Mil'
On his 262-aae farm, Kennedy
is raising crops to meet war food
and fiure needs. At present ne nas
40 acres under cultivation and is
ctearmg 15 additional acres.
Last year t. e young veterans
harvested 14 acres of cotton, la
acres of corn, live acres of oats,
Uiree of wheat, and smaller acre
ages of sweet potatoes, tobacco,
and Irish potatoes. He aiso raiseu
six hogs, jUU cnickens, jncludmg
30 layers, and milked two cows.
Joe Thornton, another cuioreu
veteran who has been iielped by
FSA, is also making a coniiibu'
lion to Ute nations wartime lunn
production program. Alter nis Uis-
charge from the Army, FSA loan
ed him $523 to put a 210-acre iarm
hear Cusseta, Georgia, into ope
ration. Thointon bougiit a cow,
brood sow, some chicks, a mule,
and iarming equipment wiLn his
loan. He used his $200 mustering-
out pay to purchase furniture and
other household goods.
‘T've always wanted to be a real
farmer, not a half-hand," Thorn
ton says. “Now the Government
is giving me a real chance."
L^t year he harvested 15 acres
ol peanuts to help meet Uie na-
uon's vegetable oil snortage, as
well as 12 acres of corn, two aci'os
of truck crops, and raised six pigs.

m the following manner:
I. It makes available a wealth

3. The magazine itself creates a
Scouting atmosphere in boy's mind,
