SATUBDAY. FEBRUARY 24, 1946 THE CAROUNIAB PAGE THREE j lNTHE\y^AKE O^The News t DV ATTY. ROGER O. O’KELLT RRIOGEIIEAU AT WILLIAMS ANI> MARY 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 to soldiers. 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 Junlor^Growers, Offered Awards 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 it. 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.

For Peace Jfieod By GEORGE S.BENSON Pr«eiJ*ni of Hording Colleoe Searey.Arkansos m 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 world peace. 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. TfflfTJWffWiailBffllf 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 Agriculture reports. 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 condition. 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 crop. 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 years. 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' lint-r di^. 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.
