I wish I were pos- sessed of sufficient wisdom to un- dertake an analysis of them, as they exist now, for it probably would'be helpful to all. But having no such vast wisdom, I shall have to con- tent myse]~ with the service of re- porting on several circumstances of recent~development and let it go at that. For several weeks now, we have witnessed a steady stream of call. ors at the White House. There have been some labor leaders but mostly the list of callers whom the Presi- dent invited were the greatest of American industrialists, the "eco. nomic royalists" whom Mr. Roose- velt has so roundly, denounced from time to time, or whenever it served political purposes to attack them publicly. The purposes of having these men visit the President, as announced a~t the White House, were to consult and try to find ways and means of checking the current de- pression. As I said, these White House vis- itors were the very "economic roy- alists" whom Mr. Roosevelt has at- tacked with such apparent satisfac- tion throughout the last five years. Indeed, among their number were some of the "sixty families" upon whom Secretary Ickes of the Inte- rior department, and Robert H. Jackson, trust busting assistant at- torney general, have been heaping abuse as the folks who "control" America. Anyone who will take the trouble to review the President's speeches and the more recent bar- rage of attacks by Messrs. Ickes and Jackson cannot help wondering if those men are crooks and if they crush the "common pee-pul," as charged, why their advice can be any good now. Nextly, it is hard to understand why or how anything is to be gained by consulting with men of that type in a serious effort to solve the prob- lems of the current depression and set off dynamite under them at the same time. That is what happened. Mr. Roosevelt announced with ve- hemence at a press interview that all holding companies "must go." They must be eliminated from American economic life and at once; there can be no toleration of corporations that are organized to hold the stock of other corporations, etc., etc. He has taken a definite position on that before as regards power companies and drove a bill through congress to eliminate them. This time, he wants to go much further. Which is proper, if that be his policy. But here is the peculiar thing. Two hours after he made his announcement, he had a dozen men in conference who represented the very thing he was denouncing and was seeking their advice. It seems paradoxical, to say the least. On top of these conferences that have brought scores of prominent industrial captains to Washington at the President's invitation, there is to be noted an entire absence of any administration action looking to re- lease of business to do its part in taking on unemployed workers. I have talked to men in congress of every shade of opinion and they are all awaiting some word as to the President's views. Their position is that the President wants to take the lead in mapping s program and most of them, I believe, will help him carry it out. They feel also that for them to start development of a program of their own makes them subject to White House criti- cism if the legislation fails to meet New Deal specifications. So they simply wait! In the meantime, the depression has sunk deeper and deeper. I frankly believe that in some locali- ties it is right now as bad as any- thing we saw in 1932. Business men are frightened to death and will not expand their businesses because of the danger that they will lose every- thing they have, and individuals are frightened and wil] not spend more money than is absolutely necessary. In other words, there is again a lack of confidence that is appalling. It seems to center on Mr. Roose- veli as it centered on Mr. Hoover in 1930 and 1931. I can judge the whole situation only by attempting to compose the observations that I gather from countless conversations. H this con- sensus be accurate, then it would appear that current fears result from an inability of anyone to know what Mr. Roosevelt will do next. That ~s to say, the expressions stressed statements that his poli- cies "lack continuity;" that he changes "overnight;" that he "at- tacks business with one hand and kicks it in the pants with one foot md asks it to take the load off of he government at the same time;" ~hat he takes advice "of a lot of aincompoops on finances who can't even balance their own household budgets;" that he "won't let pri- vate initiative do anything without havin~ a flock of government spies on our trails," and so on. I could supply fifty more from my notes, but they would be of the same ten- or. And mind your a large per- c'entag'e of these came from repre- sentatives and senators in congress, Democrats and Republicans alike. Another phase of the general situ- ation: " :~ .... There has been a tremendous drive against monopoly. This was lead largely by Dr~ve on Assistant Attorney ~onopoly General Jackson, but Mr. Ickes and lesser lights have helped carry the ball. The attacks have been gen- eral. There has been no distinc- tion between good business and bad business. The result has been that every man'~vho has some money tied up in business is wondering whether he is going to have to de- fend himself in some way, how- ever careful he has been about complying with the federal laws. The fact was called to my atten- tion also that many of the busi- nesses charged with monopoly are doing just what the government forced them to do. The unlamented NRA can be recalled without ef- fort. Under the NRA, every unit or every line of business was told what to do and how to do it. Codes of business practice were laid down for them, bearing the approval of the President, Since NRA was rele- gatecl to the ashcan, we find a dozen suits being prosecuted against busi- nesses for continuing to do the things tl~ey were forced to do when NRA was the law of the land. Then, I would like to ask what is wrong that real trusts are not being broken up. The Department of Jus- tice has some able lawyers who have been assisting Attorney Gen- eral Cummings since the inception of the New Deal. It appears to a layman like me that five years ought to be ample time in which to make some headway against trusts and monopolies. I am moved to ask, therefore, can this new outburst against monoply be a bit of poli- tics? $ $ But the turning of the New Deal wheel has brought one magnificent appointment t o Praise the Supreme court ?or Reed of the United States. I refer to the nomination of Stanley Reed to succeed the retiring Justice Suther- land. Mr. Reed has been solicitor general of the United States and as such has directed the nation's legal affairs under Attorney General Cummings. His service there, and before that with the reconstruction finance corporation, has been meri- torious. There has been nothing but praise of his ability and of his char- acter. He stands out as a great lawyer and fine personality. The appointment is worthy of con- sidering from two standpoints. Jus- tice Sutherland's resignation and the subsequent appointment gives the present President control of the court. That is to say, the known division of the court between con- serfative and liberal thought has been switched from the conserva- tive side to the liberal side by the appointment of two men. Actu- ally, it accomplishes for Mr. Roose- velt the very purpose he sought to accomplish by demanding of con- gress that it pass the so-called court reform bill a year ago, a piece of legislation on which the President received the worst licking of his political career. The second important considers. tion in the appointment is the high type of man named by the Presi- dent. Mr. Reed is progressive in thought. The New Dealers always have counted him as one of their number, but I find many people who contend that Stanley Reed believes first in the law of the land and in obeying it, rather than indulge in wishful thinking on a lot of silly, untried schemes. The country is for- tunate, indeed, to have s man like Mr. Reed on the court. And, continuing the theme of un- usual circumstances, I think refer- ence ought to be ~a~e a made to the ter- Beating rific beating that is being handed the southern Democratic members of the senate. They have been mak- ing a brave fight against passage of a piece of utterly assinine legisla- tion-the so.called anti-lynching bilL Men like Harrison of Mississippi, Byrnes of South Carolina, Co'rmally of Texas, and others, have been holding the fort against this vicious legislation. They ought to win, but they probably won't. I have seen something of the race problem in the South, and I can un- derstand what the basis of south- ern objection is. On the other hand, there is only one basis for the pres- sure which Senator Wagner, New York Democrat, is putting on the bill and the reason why the senate was tied up in a deadlock of the filibuster type for days. That rea- son is that Senator Wagner is try- ing tp get control of the negro votes in New York city's Harlem area. @ western Newe~a~ Unl~ Making Winfer Hours Counf i SEW- YOUR- OWN means most at this season of the year when dark and long winter days make ti~e hang heavy on your hands.
