A Misleading Statement -
Thj National Fertilizer Association, in its efforts
to choke Muscle Shoals, makes the statement that pri
vate producers have cut the price of complete fer
that a farmer can buy the same fertilizer for $32
now that cost him SIOO in 1919.
We would like to know the name of one farmer who
is buying for less than one-third of what he paid in
1919, and w e would like to know just one fertilizer
company which is selling as much fertilizer for $32
now as it sold for SIOO in 1919.
If there is anybody that wants Muscle Shoals dam
washed down stream and destroyed, it is the fertilizer
and power folks. They seem to be afraid the-govern
ment will go to making fertilizer and selling power,
and that the people will find out from that source the
actual cost of making nitrogen and generating power.
The National Fertilizer Association ought to be
made to prove its statement.
What of the Future?
The question of our present condition is not of
so much importance to us as what of future years?
Most of the people are getting along some way, al
though not quite like they may wish. We are able
to stand it. But what of tomorrow? Are our chil
dren going to be ablfr to feed and clothe themselves?
Ther e was a time when young folks were taught to
work. They are today the business leaders of the
country. In that day when young men went to col
lege they were permitted a short Christmas holiday.
Now they get a week or two at Thanksgiving, then
the same at Christmas, a few days at quarter-term
examinations, and a long time for Easter, besides all
the time for sporting the/ want.
Of course, this is not the business of many folks. It
only means more weaklings to go out on life's battle
Everybody is in training to handle high-powered
machinery, with the purpose of not having to work
hard like daddy and mama. This alone will ruin the
country. The day that the machine does th e work
man will b e done with, and will have to go, unless he
owns the machine, and only a few can own them.
We are already a long way over-mechahized. The
* ' . , ' ''
man who makes the machine has found it easy to I
sell the folks, until now the folks can not buy the
machine any longer, and the machine age has gone
Unless we hark back to work, folks are going to
find making a living harder in the future than in the
-pastT —Something should to save u&-4rom—j
this machine and play age. 1

Speaking oi Economy
If the Senators and Representatives in Washington
are so anxious to effect economy, why don't they go
about cutting their own salaries? Like many another
citizen, in the early stages of the depression I was
against cutting salaries and wages. We all hoped for
a "turn" and many of us thought that pay cuts would
tend to make bad times worse. But a different situ
ation exists today. Cuts have been put into effect in
commerce and industry, in education, in state and
county and town governments. Of. course there are
many classes of government employees who are still
getting less than they deserve and whose pay should
not be reduced. Army and Navy officers, for ex
ample, and thousands, of clerks. But Senators and
Representatives pet SIO,OOO a- year. I-urthermore,
they receive extra tllowances with whilStsj. great many
of them employ mi mbers of their own families. Ihe
economic situation being what it i.s, they are drawing
too much from the public treasury. —Louis Graves in
The Chapel Hill Weekly.
A Matter oi Bleeding
Greensboro Daily News.
Dr. H. T. Hunter, president of Cullowhee State
Normal College, has discovered the reason for the
state's inability to "meet proper educational expenses."
The trouble is, l)r. Hunter told an Asheville audience,
that the Federal Government is bleeding the state of
North Carolina in the collection of apporximately
$300,000,000 in internal revenue annually.
TO the educator's declaration there can be no de
nial, but the federal government may be quit e ready
to do some accusing of its own. What about the man
ner in which the states are bleeding the Federal gov
ernment ? There has been an increasing demand for
Federal aid in various activities and North Carolina
has never been found very far to the rear in its pre
sentation of claims. North Carolina farmers made
no effort to defeat th e $500,000,000 farm board ap
propriation. North Carolina service men have joined
quite enthusiastically, a goodly number of them at
least, in the bonus agitation. The war department
at State College and Davidson. Federal aid high
way projects in increasingly large numbers are even
now the hope of state leaders.
When the reconstruction finance measure was un
der, consideration, North Carolinians urged its prompt
passage as vigorously as anybody else. A district
office of th e newly created corporation has been se
cured f6r Charlotte, and Tar Heel institutions in need
of assistance are preparing to obtain relief for them
selves and the citizenry which they serve from the
enormous pool at hand. All these projects are com
mendable, many of them necessary. But the point is
that North Carolina and other states, for states are
but citizens in the aggregate, have sought this federal
assistance, have dumped more and more of their woes
upon Washington and looked to the Federal govern
ment as never before for relief. Flach may,, with a
certain amount of justice, be accused of bleeding the
other, and in the conflicting accusations hop e of ease
ment becomes more remote than ever.
Back of the argument over who's bleeding whom
must be the transcending realization that whenever
the taxpayer gets anything from the government,
state or federal, he'll eventually be called upon to pay
for it in terms of his own blood. • L
