Children of Farm Tenants. Within the last two years rural child welfare and country life prob lems have commanded widespread in terest. For the purpose of making a study of . conditions In Tennessee a survey was made in 1920 m fourteen communities scattered throughout the State. The survey was made by Charles E. Gibons, representative of the National Child Labor Committee in co-operation with the Division ot Extension, University of Tennessee. A report on the 3urvey was recent ly made to the Division of Exten sion and one of the striking points in the evidence presented is the wide difference in conditions surrounding the Uvea "of children whose parents arc farm owners and children whose parents are tenants. In regard to this the report has the following to say: , "Owners have nearly three times as large an income as tenants, altho families of each are practically the same size. Children of farm owners arc not kept out of school to work on the farm a3 tenant children are. Tenants move about much vmore, hence they do not have the comforts and conveniences In their homes that they might have if their tenure were longer. Bocau30 of the sy3tem, ten ants are forced to borrow at high in terest rates and are thus restricted in the manner in which they may purchase their supplies and dispose of their crops. They get a great deal less from the farm for their ta bles than the owners do. Their water supply is lew protected. Fewer of their homes have screens and toilets. Their opportunities for recreation are more limited. They read less be cause they have less to reaa. "The opportunity that tenants' children have for education, health, recreation, and the enjoyment of a normal childhood, is very limited. The evidence shows that many of the economic factors .that enter Into conditions surrounding their lives are below a minimum standard for decent living. This ougnv not to be for any group of people. According to the 1910 census, tenants comprise a little more than 41 per cent of the rural population of Tennessee. Hence, tho problem of giving tenant children their Inherent rights Is se rious, not only because of the ex tremely bad conditions under which we are living, but also because of the large number involved. These children ought to have a better chance than they now have." One remedy for this, the report says, is for the tenant to move less, as conditions were founa to be much better where the tenants did not move often. His Last Joke. "Would you care to make a few remarks before we spring the trap?" asked the sympathetic sheriff. "No," replied the condemned man. "I may have my faults, otherwise I wouldn't be' be here, but trapdoor el oquence always did offend my idea of the fitness of things. Besides, a number of newspaper men are pres ent. They would certainly take down anything I said, and if they got it wrong after the er ceremony I wouldn't be in a position to claim I was misquoted." Birniingham Age Hcrald.

New President Will Have to Con tribute to World War Bill. .Washington, Feb. 2. Warren G. Harding, as President of tho United States, will receive something . like $18,000 less compensation from the government annually than Woodrow Wilsorihas received. The treasury vill pay Mr. Hard ing the same amount that it pays Mr. Wilton 175,000 annually but in ternal revenue bureau officials say thst Mr. Harling muct return nearly oue-fouth of this in income tax. Preaident Wilson was exempted from the income tax under a Su premo Court ruling because he came into office before tho enactment of the 1919 revenue laws unler which taxes were sought to be imposed on the salaries of the President and of Federal judges. The Supreme Court held that the tax could not be col lected in the case of incumbents be- cauao of the constitutional inhibition against tho reduction of the salaries of the executive and Federal judges during their term of office. The solicitor general has ruled that the tax could be collected from officials taking office after the law became effective because that would not bring about any reduction In. salary during the term of office. Revenue officials say that Mr. Harding, of course, vill be allowed the usual exemption of $2000 a year for a married man, and may claim certain business exemption. Placing his exemption at $2000 nearly, how ever, they figure hio normal incoine trx at $5480, and his surtax at $12,- 940, a total of $18,420. President Wilson is understood to have paid soire taxes under the 1918 law before the Supreme Court ruled on the section, which a Federal judge attacked, but revenue bureau offi cials will not say how much nor whether it it was refunded, holding that under the law such matters are confidential.
