CALLS POVERTY UNJUST
(My Associatedl Preexs)
DES MOINES, Ia., May 20-The d:>-
trine that only the fit should survie
I is false as applied to human welfnre,
John A. Lapp, Chicago, president of
the National' Conference of So;l
Work, .declared in a recent address.
"The competitive struggle must be
governed by better rules,' he sid.
"Such an idea is a blow below the
belt."
Mr. Lapp asserted that ninety per
cent or more of all poverty in the
United States is due to injustice or
unavoidable causes.
"War, floods and tornadoes; sick-
ness, under-employment, 'accident,
mental deficiency, death or desertion,
inadequate wages, business failures
and dependent old age are the chief
causes of poverty and not, as many
people claim, the unfitness of indi-
viduals," he continued.
"Selfishinterests are reviving the
discredited doctrine of survival of the
fittest as a means of supporting op-
position to any form of government
regulation which might interfere with
their own aims.
"No previous time in the history of
th'e country has seen such a concert-
ed movement to break down the con-
fidence of the people in their govern-
ment as an instrument for human bet-
terment."
In many ways he said, the course
of social life has been entirely chang-
ed by legislative action. He cited the
workmen's compensation law as an
example.
".N we should follow the guidance
of the believers in laissez-fairedand
shackle the legislature more than they
are," he said, we would find in a gen-
eration that what is left of liberty
would not be worth fighting for."
He estimated that the stigma. of
personal failure is placed upon a quar-
ter of a million new persons every
year. As evidence that human beings
can be protected from disasters for
which they are not responsible, he cit-
ed the control of such scourges as ty-
phoid fever, smallpox and tubercu-
losis.
CALIFORNIA.-- Sir Esme Howard,

Owing to the fact that this year's
programs were generally longer than
before, it has been found necessary to
enlarge the pamphlet to 52 instead of
32 pages as before, and since the ,il-
loted fund to cover the cost is limited,
Mr. Abbot explains, there will be a
fewer number of copies distributed.
The pamphlet will be issued in the
fore- of a University bulletin rather
than as a separate publication.
