of the twentieth century will be one
of bread,” said Dr. J. W. Stagg,
president of the Alabama Presby
terian college and renowned scholar,
Wednesday morning. “Duringthe
French revolution the people cried
for bread, and the king answered:
‘Let them eat grass,’ and later grass
was stuffed down tin* throat of his
“Rockefeller, Morgan and others
of the same ilk, make virtually the
same answer to the cries of the un
employed today. The average man
to capital, hut 100 per cent is too
much, and the people will rebel.
The bread cry, which a few years
ago was the plaintive appeal, is
growing into a serious rumble, and
unless the impeding death struggle
is solved by an exodus from city to
country. I fear a revolution within
the next few years.”
