RURAL AMERICA WILL DO IT .
(By Richard Lloyd Jones)
Law enforcement is more generally practiced and respected in rural
districts and small towns than in the larger cities.
All the great cities were, by a large majority, opposed to the elimina
tion of the saloon. And yet it was the saloon in the large cities that did
the most of the soul and body destroying business.
Bad in any place the saloon was at its worst in the big towns. Yet
the majority favored its retention and today register protest against pro
hiiition. On the other hand, by a large majority, the shall towns and the
rural districts favor the laws of decency.
For this reason the smaller towns do not today experience, as do the
larger cities, that which has been termed the crime wave.
The committee on law enforcement of the American Bar Association,
headed by Judge William D. Swaney, of Chattanooga, Tenn., has recom
mended to the lawyers, of the land that a very drastic national law be en
acted which will prohibit the promiscuous sale of firearms.
'T'his committee declares that the pistol serves no special purpose in
the community today and that it should not he manufactured except so far
as government and official needs may require under proper legal regula
tion and control.
The committee points out that there were nearly 10,000 unlawful
homicides in this country last year and that burglaries have increased in
the United States 1,200 per cent in the last ten years.
The committee also maintains that deliberate murder, burglary and
robbery will seldom be attempted unless the criminal is armed. It also
points out that crime percentages in Europe are very much less, due to the
fact that it is difficult for civilians to acquire firearms and the penalty is.
severe for'earrying them.
Our big cities are so busy with what they regard as the pressing busi
ness of the hour, that they are less likely to weigh the moral worth of an
issue than are thb smaller towns and 'rural districts. Therefore, the moral
support of a righteous redress against a wrong social tendency comes from
the less populated places.
The big town men too often think they are the big idea builders. That
is their big mistake. It is the small towns that both make and save the
big towns. It is the small towns and the farmers of the land who put
across the big ideas.
Restriction of manufacture and sale and possession of pocket fire
pieces must cone and it is rural America that will bring it.
THE HEN CALLS FOR HELP
Finally the food profiteers have locked horns with a real opposition.
'They face the inexorable persistency of, the great American hen and
Some years ago the American hen gave warning that she might prove
a dangerous enemy and bring about fair prices, but the shrewd profiteers
countered, and when time hen laid in sufficient volume to feed the people the
cold storage warehouse was conceived.
I nstead of heing distributed at prices governed by the law of supply
and demad, eggs were stored, kept fromh the people, and doled out at uni
formly high prices.
It a ppeiars. however. thIt the great American lien has been thinking.
Thie result is she has again come to the front with a production so bewild
ering that the cold storage plants cannot take care of it.
Triue, in spite of this, eggs in New York are selling from 60 to 75
