Children or Collpn
a curse to Texas
ohildreu," remarked the super
intendent of one of the Texas
schools to Lewis W. ELine, spec
ial investigator for the National
Ohild Labor Committee. And
why it is a curse? This question
is the theme 6f an article by Mr.
Hine on "Children of Oottou,"
in the "Survey" of-February 7th.
'Come out with me at sun
up," says Mr. Hine, "and watch
the children troopiuj? into the
field, some of them kiddies four
or five years old, to begin the
pick-pick-pick, drop into the bag,
step forward; pick-pick, drop in
to the bag, step forward, six
days in the week, live months in
the year, under a relentless sun.
The mere sight of their monot
onous repetition will tire you
out long before they stop. Their
working day folIowB';the 8unfand
.not until sun -down will they
leave the fields. Ruby, uged 7,
stopped working lone enough to
say, ae 1 8tood' her, 1
Center St. Madisonvllle, Ky
from sun-up to eumdowo, an1
picks thirty-five .pounds a day
Imagine .the uutribec of .feathery
bolls that must go iuto the bag
hanging about her neck to tip
the scale at tbirfcy-fWe pounds.
.""Ihe rqault of a few years of
this incessant grind, long hours,
physical strain, lack of proper
.bod and care, and lack of men-
fcal Btimulus? What can it be
but ohvsical defeneration and
moral atrophy? We have long
assailed (and justly) the , cotton
industry as the Herod of the
mills. The Eunshine. iii the cot
ton fields, has blinded onr eyes
to, the fact that the cotton pick
er suffers quite as much as the
mill haod from, the monotony,
overwork, and hopelessness of
hia life. It. ,h high fiiuie for us to
face the truth and adoYto our In
dictment of bum Cotton a new
charge the Eforo'l of the lields.
"Oiva of the most pitiful things
about the fUtuation is the indiff
erent acceptance of conditionw by
people generally. I heard very
little anxious comment except
from school teachers. Ruby's
father, who said, "They git five
months schooling . and it ain't
'uufT.' stood out among all "the
parents! interviewed as'n rare
exception. It is quite possible
that the Texas farmers are not so
indifferent to the exploitation of
their children as appears, for
they are litterallv 'up against
it.' They are transient renters,
weighed down by debt, illiterate
and dependent upon the crops.
"But I place first and foremost
in any program of change the re-
strietisn of child labor. Child
ren must be left free to go to
school. At a recent conference
of tha Texas State Board of
Charities aud Corrections, all
were at;reed that compulsory ed
ucatiou is the greatest need of
Texas today. Patriotism demands
that we save the children- We
must begin at ouce lay the
foundation for the farmer of to
morrow, by a, longer period of
childhood today, with better
preparaUba foworhr.aDd abetter
