Official Student Newspaper of the University of Nebraska
Noted Irish Economist and
Poet Says Cities Take
Country's People.
Philosopher Declares That
Urban Life Causes
Gcorg rtiiMfolI. noted Irish eco
nomist, 1'i't, and philosopher ad
dressed an all-university convoca
tion Tuesday morning tn the
StiiHt t theater. He was introduced
by Chancellor K. A. Burnett. The
speech wan broadcasted over the
western network of the National
Broadcasting company.
Mr. Kns'ell tiHik a hi. topic.
"The Philosophy of Kural and
Community Life."
"K Is not the custom in your
country to regard poets as eco
nomic authorities." said Mr. Bus
Rell, "but during: the Inst twenty
five years, I have been th adviser
of the Irish farmers, started hanks,
published and edited agricultural
newspapers, and written books,
that have been read in piactlcally
every country of the world. I am
not saying: this to glorify myself,
but only that you can understand
that I have some background for
what I will say today."
Pioneer In Co-operation.
The Irish Agricultural Organiz
ation society with which Mr. Rus
sell has worked is first the English
speaking organization to under
take the task of building up rural
Mr. Russell stressed the impor
tance of focusing creative imagin
ation on the problem of rural so
ciety. He compared modern
mothnHa of transnortation with
these of the medieval times, when
people born in a rural community
were unable to migrate to the ur
ban centers.
Forsees Condition.
In view of the progress of the
United States Mr. Russell believes
that this condition of rural exodus,
is more likely to affect this coun
try, than it is the countries of
Europe. "Your cities are teeming
with vitality, and energy drawn
from the country aides of all na
tions," said Mr. Russell but when
the country deteriorates to such
aa extent that it can no longer
supply the city, the city will also
Mr. Russell called attention to
the statement of Wheeler McMil
lan, American economist that 15
percent of population was all that
was necessary 40 pursue agricul
ture, and even 10 percent of the
population, properly educated
could supply this country with its
agricultural needs.
Prophesies Decline.
"But if your population becomes
90 percent urban your humanity
will begin to deteriorate because
the cities will have reached a
point whers efficiency will allow
the people to io less work," de
clared Mr. Russell. Mr. Russell is
of the opinion that America needs
at least 20 percent of her popula
tion in the rural districts.
"Try and build up a rural civili
zation that will be so pleasant, so
prosperous, that the children will
not want to leave," advised the
However, Mr. Russell does not
advocate conflict between the
rural and urban communities.
They are fundamentally one,
pointed out the speaker, and or
ganization makes the farmer a
better buyer for the city's prod
ucts. Urges Co-operatives.
He suggested that we consider
most seriously the nature of the

The question of how long the
caps are to be worn was brought
up. Rome of the houses said that
their treshmen had thrown away
the caps following the victory of
the freshman team over the Okla

dent Fred Grau said that the out
