The Problem of Country Life
By CHARLES STELZLE
RURAL decay Is one of the most staggering problems in American na
tional life. In the mutter of population alone it calls for serious at
tention The percentage of rural population in the United States h is
been steadily decreasing Be follows; in 1880 there lived in the country 7U8
per cent of the total population; in 1800. Qg.9 per cent: in l'.KX). 50.5 per cent:
in 1010, ":'.. 7 per cent.
The loss of rural population Is due to economic social and educational
ennaes Itellutou nnd rellajoaa institutions also play BO Important part in the
problem. We bear much these days about the country life movement." Let
It be noted that this is a different profHWltloti from the "back to the land"
movement. It may be said broadly that the tirst was Inaugurated for the pur-

pose of benefiting the country, the second for the purpoaa of benefiting the
city. UnQUeatloOnWy more will come of the former than of the latter, for the
movement to improve the conditions of farm life is In harmony with a normal
desire, while the effort to transplant the city man to the country is in violation-,
of natural law. Just as the c ity must vvrk out Its own salvation, so the coun
try will be compelled to solve its own problems. It must be quite apparent
that good farm land and profitable farming will not settle the most vital ques
tions in the country. Principally, the leaders in this movement tell us, there
must be n higher idealism among country people. They must have higher
standards of education, of social life, of the moral well being in ea. com
munity. The country life commission appointed by the president said In ItH
report, "Any consideration of the problem of rural life that leaves out of ac
count the function and the ossibi!ities of the church and of related institu
tions would be grossly inadequate, because from the purely so
ciological point of view the church is fundamentally a necessary institution in
