STOP MAKING COTTON
BY CHILDiREN'S SWEAT
(Continued from Page Three.)
such a thorough-going law!
Children Not Educated.
The whole -point 'is this: that nwhile
children in all other States and coun
tries -have been going to school and
getting an education, together with all
the advantages and benefits which
education confers, we have -been keep
ing our children in the 0olds and let
ting them grow ip in Ignorance-cam
,parative ignorance at 'the very least.
But the main point is this-that we
have done all this for nothing. We
have made this shameful sacriflee of
the immortal minds of our boys and
girls for nothing.
Why do I say for nothing? Be
cause by keeping our children in the
fields instead of the schools, we have
simply 'produced larger cotton crops
than the world was willing to pay
high 'prices for. And -the not result is
that we here in the South have gotten
no more for making big crops of cot
ton and keeping our children in ignor
ance to do it, than we should have
gotten for the smaller crops of cotton
we should have made if we had sent
our children to school as all the rest
of the world is doing.
Now let us get back to the negro.
In this matter of cotton prices, two
can't have one rule for the white man
and another for the negro.
If the negro cotton farmer prospers,
the white cotton farmer ivill prosper.
If the negro laborer must accept a low
wage scale, the white laborer must
accept the samei low wage scale andl the
white farmer who works his land must
accept the same low wage scale in the
form of lower prices for his products.
Moreover, if the negro farmer keops
his children out of school and in the
ctton field, must not the white farmer
do the same thing to meet this negro
PaIy Good Wiages.
The South must come- to the point
where it will be glad to see the negro
get a high wage for his labor. Does
it not mean higher wages for the
'white man also? And therefore
higher prices for what the South sells?
And therefore more dollars for our
merchants, bankers and all our busi
ness and professional men? And even
if a temporary "scarcity of labor" is
necessary in order to bring up the
South's wage scale to that of other
sections, may it not prove a blessing
in -the long run?
How then can we permanently
increase the price of cotton It seems
to me that four 'ways are plainly open
1. We must no longer be con(ent to
grow anl oversupply of cotton--which
means that it will be a cheap labor
crop-and With it bly products which
pay higher wages for labor and which
two can grow ourselves. That cot
ton iist lhe 1 "suir)lus crop" aftcr the
farm has been made to "feed itself"
is old, old doctrine, of course, but
'"other foundat ion can no man lay
II tan thi w hich(1 is laid'' if we are'( everi
to get. hig~h priernd cot ton.

Infto play, that profits aro Increased
as in diversified faruming and stocjE
raising. And at the same time help
the price of cotton.
3. We should preach the need for a
higher owage scale in the rural South
which 'would at the same time hold
and attrac a more efillcient grade of
labor than low wages will over hold
or command. And &wo must "go on a
strike" against raising full crops of
cotton until the world is willing to
'give enough for cotton to enable us
to pay this higher wage scale.
4. Instead of foolishly combating
cOInpulsory attendance laws every cot
ton grower in the South who knows
his own interest should insist that
such hauws be passed-and enforced
for both races. As M. Eugene Street
said in a recent article:
"I grow cotton and I know that it
will be impossible for me to get my
cotton crop made and picked without
child labor and long hours for women
-if I have to sell it at the aveyage
price the farmer has got for his cot
ton for the last 30 years. And my ex
perience would be that of every one
else who had -to grow cotton under
similar conditions. But would the de
mand for cotton cease because it could
not be had for the cheap price it ha4
formerly brought? Would pCoile (lult
wearing clothes? The demand for cot
ton would continue as great as ever
and the price would advance until it
became sufticient to enable the pro
ducer to pay a wage scale that would
insure all the labor necessary to pro
duce an ample crop, and the South
would bo on an equality with the bal
ance of the country with its wage
scale, bank deposits, flourishing ci-ties
and towns, schools, good roads and
In olier words, we can cIII cotton
production by putting our children in
school Instead of in the fields-as chil
dren everywhere else are put-and we
-will got just as much for the reduced
cotton crops we shall then make as
we should get for the lart-a' erops made
by sacrificing the lives. n1mids and fu
ture welfare of our own ilesh and
blood, as we have been fools enough
to do for 10 years past.
Let us try these four lways of per
manently increasing cotton prices.
