L For die future of the South
BECAUSE of the remark
able development of its
natural resources, the South
today is taking a new leader
ship in the economic progress
of the nation.
But this leadership, if it is
to be maintained, must have a
more enduring foundation than
the possession and exploitation
of material things. ,
The South of tomorrow will
be made by the children of to
day. The boys now in school
and attending the churches
will be the captains of industry
and the leaders in the profes
sions a few years hence.
Citizenship is in the making
in tl»e schools and the churches.
A exeat responsibility rests
upon the shoulders of the
teachers of the South—in the
pulpit and in the class-room.
But the compensation ac
corded > the great majority of
them is inadequate.
The Southern Railway Sys
tem, which pays three million
dollars per annum in school
taxes, voices not only its own
best interest but the ambition
of its 60,000 employees in re
spect to the future of their
children and their section,
when it expresses the view that
greater rewards should be of
fered the men and women who
are building Southern citizen
ship of tomorrow.
