The Same Institution
Recognized and heralded just a lew months
ago by the United States Chamber of Com
merce as an institution possessing God-given
super powers and as an institution that could
not bo wrong and one the acts of which should
not be questioned, right or wrong, the United
States Supreme Court is now being criticised
by its once staunch supporters.
The court is the same institution today that
the forefathers founded more than a hundred
years ago The principles that guided the au
gust body in the late eighteenth century, guide
it today, and when those principles are advanc
ed in solving the baffling questions the repre
sentative membership of the United States
Chamber of Commerce is expected to howl
We were told just a few short months ago
that it was next to saenhgious to even comment
on the work of the supreme tribunal It was
held up as a thing far removed from the com
mon people, it was to be worshipped as a god
upon the altar before which the masses were to
pffer themselves as sacrifices to the decisions
of the judges and without complaint. Many of
those who pointed out the astounding fact a
few months ago that the court could do no
wrong are now attacking the court
The Supreme Court is made up of human be
ings just as ail others are subject to make mis
takes. Probably the court has made mistakes
and its members are due criticism, but it is the
sincere belief of the masses that the court has
awakened to the true facts after a terrible orgy
surrounding the worship of pniperty and is
functioning after and m accordance with the
principles laid down by the founding fathers
The personnel of the court with possible ex
ceptions. is recognized equal to that of any court
in many years Some of them entertain conflict
ing views, but despite those conflicting views
the court has moved forward m recent months
to recognize human rights along with property
rights, to weigh all the facts and open its eyes to
Opinions handed down may be subject to
criticism, but the true court thai incorporate*
the founding principles that make it supreme
in the governmental structure deserves no such
criticism as some members of the United States
Chamber of Commerce heaped upon it in re
cent days because the court was not in direct
sympathy with the organization's program. The
founding fathers would not sanction the pro
gram allegedly advanced by the chamber or
ganization, a program that is designed to cut
Taxes of those most able to pay, to reduce or
wipe out altogether relief expenditures, to pro
mote wild cat stock schemes, to repeal all labor
laws and deny the farmers and the masses, as
a whole, tin right to free citizenship. And be
cause the court does not hold companionship
with such a program it is criticised by those
who were just a few months ago it staunch de
Tlie U ay of the Kings
Cotton, for so long a time recognized and
heralded as King Cotton, is sharing the fate of
other kings Just as King Zog, King Selassie and
other kings have had their thrones vacated so
has cotton been cast out. The removal of the
kings by the Mussolini and Hitler methods and
by our modern way of living has caused no end
of turmoil, and causes one to wonder if some
of the problems now existent in the world
could not be remedied by the return of the out
casts to their thrones.
-Tile-colurn of Albania and Ethiopia, would
certainly reflect travel in a direction of peace
and away from the aggressive trend. But poor
old Haile Selassie will be returning to his little
kingdom just about the time American society
women start restoring King Cotton to his throne
be wearing cotton stockings.
Until then. ex-King Cotton will go all over
the world begging recognition, leaving behind
one of the biggest farm problems that a law-.
yei-Cot re admittedly does not know how to
tlpporliiiiity in the South
The field of opportunity is possibly richer in
the South than anywhere in the Nation or the
world today, and if certain factors can be met
whereby the people of the territory can enjoy
equal advantages with those in other sections,
those opportunities will bloom into one of the
greatest periods of prosperity ever experienced.
One of the greatest markets for lumber in the
country is found right here in the South. A re
liable survey not long completed shows that at
least four million new homes are needed to
house the population, not to mention nearly
three million homes that are far below the bare
standard of convenience and decency. The im
portance of the survey is more vividly brought
to ones attention when he gets off the highway
and makes a mental note of the hovels that
hundreds call home right hbre in this county.
Yet. with tins urgent need staring us in the
fad the South, possibly unable to meet that
need, continues to deplete its forests and send
the cream of its lumber to other sections.
After paying interest homage to Wall Street
directly or indirectly, after paying tribute in
the form of discriminatory freight rates, and
after selling low and buying high, the South
I?iSs1t)IyTs doing well to drag along and make
as much progress as is claimed for it.
