"The paradox of the South is that while it is blessed by nature with immense wealth, its people as a whole are the poorest in the country...the South presents right now the nation's number one economic problem."

Unsatisfactory education, housing and health are all factors which lessen individual earning power.
The South leads the nation in illiteracy; in 1930 nearly nine out of every 100 Southerners of school or post-school age could not read or write.

Slums are found in rural areas. One quarter of Southern city and town homes are without toilet facilities.
