Columbia, .'lay 8.--High prices for

from his winter home at Daytona,
Florida, where he has been since last
December. 'lhere lie has been watch
ing world events but never for a ilo

South and her future.
At the Jefferson ' Hotel last night
when asked what lie thought of the
industrial future of the South, lie said:
"The South has largely made poli
ties Its business. The North and the
west have made business their pol
tics. We in the ISouth largely con
centrate our throughts, our activities
upon polities, local, state and national.
'We are interested in who Is going to
-be the sheriff, or governor, or sena
tor than we are in who is going to
do some creative work in developing
our vast resources. In the North and
West, on the other hand business and
creative and constructive -work are the
supreme issues and .politics are con
sidered mainly in their point of rela
tion to business development. If, for
the next flye years the South would
give to highway improvement, to
minlcipal hetterments, to construc
tion of hotter housing facilities for
its people and the utilization of its
natural resources as muich attention
as it now gives to petty politics, in in
dustrial and(] agricultural advancement
and its increase in wealth would be
amazingly great. There is no other
erqual area in the world that can
match in natural advantages for the
Qreation of wealth the Southern States.
"rhis is- freely admitted by the ab
lest experts in the world. At different
times I have published the testihony
,of the foremost scientists in America,
and the great leaders in chemistry and
industrial work of all kinds that the
natural advantages of this section are
far beyond those of any other known
area in the world.
"It is trite that we have made con
-siderable progress in the development
of these resources but. we have not ac
cjmuplished one-fourth as mich as

the co-called high prices of today twill
continue for a good many years. The
high prices of materials, of farm pro
ducts, and of wages arc largely due
to the tremendous world wide infla

as the inflation lasts, and it must con

have a continuance of high cost of liv
