TT'ESDAY. SEPTEMBER 13. 1021.
COTTON.
Cotton in the first year of flie war,
when the foreign market was cut off.
went begging at 10 cents a pound. On
the crest of the war boom it rose to 40
cents, and higher. Then, with a bumper
crop and hard times, it dropped almost
to 10 cents again, with im proportionate
drop in production and living costs. Nat
urally that spelled calamity to the cotton
belt and the whole south, and aggravated
national depression.' Now, with cotton
-!;'"g around 20 cents, which in some-
: near what it is really worth, grow
ers are rejoicing and the whole South
feels the stimulus in reviving business ac
tivity, while the northern states are fav
orably affected by it.
It is a curious thing that a short crop
should bring better times. We haw ' e
come accustomed to the economic dictum
1 hat prosperity is necessarily based on
plentiful production. There is not, how
ever, any necessary contradiction.
It is to be observed that there is no
real shortage of cotton. Seven million
bales means a short crop, but there is
enough hold-over from last year to bring
the total up to the average yield ami up
to the world's normal requirement -, X.11
that has happened, therefore, :i risior
ation of a normal price for t':i- groat
staple, which will -n-e its producers from
ruin without inflicting any necessary
hardship on consumers.
The South seems likely to gain a half
billion dollars or more from , the market
rise. The cotton-users of the world cni:
easily absorb that, if it is passed ot: to
them without extortionate increase. In
deed, so little comparatively lias the cost
of raw cotton to do with the price of
most manufactured cotton cloth that
there is said to be small reason, in most
cases, why this rise which means sal
vation to the South should affect the re
tail price at all.
THE OVER-AGE Pl'PIL.
Special classes for over-age children
are to be opened in each school district
in one of the larger cities. This is an
advance in educational understanding
worthy of attention. "
There are great numbers of these chil
dren in tli schools of the country. Prob
ably no builiiing. large or small, is with
out its quota. Their condition may arise
from any one of a number of reasons.
They have been started in school later
than the average cMM. They lack the
i,'i:Lal or physical ability to keep up
wh'i mates of their own age, or they
are uninterested or lazy. In any event,
each one should be a special case. The
attempt to solve their problem by plac
ing them in the grades with younger chil
dren is unfair to the over-age child, to
his younger classmates and to the
teacher, whose time is all too short for
her normal charges.
In the city referred to, the cause of
each child's backward estate will be a-cert-inied
carefully and his training
plan;,.tl to overcome his. handier ps
without undue delay. Frills and in
tricacies will be discarded in favor of
simplified education, following plain,
practical lines which have to do with
everyday affairs, marketing, making
change and the like. Domestic science
and manual training will be given prom
inence. Under such a plan as this, a class of
children who too frequently profit but
little from the agonized efforts to give
them the conventional education should
make -fair progress along all essential
lines. Instead of being turned adrift fi
nally, a menace to themselves and others,
they should emerge fairly competent and
reliable citizens with eugh practical

WASHINGTON. Sept. 1.?. Daniel J.
Tobin. president of the International

as treasurer and member of the executive
council of the American federation of
labor and his resignation will be acted
on by the executive council at a meeting
November 14, according to a current is

by 1(1 railroad labor organizations.
Disagreement with President Gompers
of the federation as to representation at
the forthcoming unemployment confer

the article says.
"We are suffering from too much talk
in Washington," the article credits Mr.
Tobin as having declared. "What the un
employed want is work, not more talk.
