It rAakes a pause the pause that refreshes and le*ls to better work. ■ , r Economic Highlights There is an American tradition to the effect that the Vice-Presi dent of the Republic shall be a man who rays little and does less —an official with an imposing | title and a substantial salary, but 'with few responsibilities and al most no authority. Some years ago a very successful stage farce was written around the idea of a vice-president named Winterbot tom who kept wandering about his party headquarters and could find no one who knew’ or cared who he wa?. And, in actual his tory. the vice-presidertcy has been used more than once to “get rid” of some man whom party leaders thought too troublesome. Roose velt the first is a case in point— he was kicked upstairs into the vice-presidency because he had made many enemies as Governor of New’ York, and he very likely would have been doomed to ob scurity had not McKinley’s assas sination taken him to the White House. Garner to the Fore Now “Cactus Jack” Garner seemed to be the perfect stuff of which a run-of-the-mill vice-p resident should be made. An able con gressman, with decades of serv ice behind him, he was known as a hard but unspectacular worker. And when he assumed his posi tion of vice-president, he seemed to fit well into the Classic mold. A good disciplinarian and admin istrator, he apparently took little part in politics. He wasn’t often in the headlines. But now, times Lave dramatically changed, and it is around the genial, plain figure of Jack Garner that much of to day’s most important political discussion is centering. He has become the great hope of the con servatives in the Democratic party—and the leader of a quiet out unrelenting “rightist rebel lion” against the New Deal. Well Suited For New Role In the view of some of the most astute political commentators, the Vice-President is w’ell suited to this new role. In origin, train ing and experience he is the log ical representative of those mil lions of people whom little is heard but who nonetheless hold the real balance of power in America the merchant, the farmer, the rancher, the small town banker and lawyer and doc tor. In political philosophy, he might be termed a conservative libelal—he believes reform should be achieved slow’ly and cautious ly without disheartening or dis | coui aging business. He has cer ' tain gifts of immense political importance—a nerveless patience (it is characteristic of the man that he is called the best poker player in Washington, where fa with most of the faces, clothing and background; fully in Chinese style. mous poker players abound); a vast knowledge of the techniques of political strategy; a talent for making friends; a winning. ; "home-spun” personality; a knack for terse, individually phrased comments on events. The latter is illustrated by a remark he is rumored to have made to the President: "You've got to give the cattle (meaning business) a chance to put some fat on their bones”. Leads Pro-Economy Group It is around Gamer that the po tent pro-economy group of Demo cratic senators has gathered. He is very close to Senator Hamson. i who is leading the economy drive on the floor. He is strongly in favor of tax revision—though. 1 like the cagey politician he is. he does his talking in the privacy of his office, and not m public. And it is universally reported that he was largely responsible for per suading the Senate to reduce the WPA appiopnation asked by the President, to the tune of $150,- 000,000. As Time observes, “Ex traordinary fact about the Garner Rebellion is that its leader does nol for one minute expect to win its Economy object; at least, not at this session of Congress”. He is biding his tune, getting in hts licks, and planning fur the fu . ture. ? Highly significant is the fact j that Garner now’ leads in all the standard polls for 1940’s Deroo ] cratic presidential nomination, j On the debit side is the fact that ' he is 70 now—an age that is gen One Price To All Tek TOOTH BRUSH, $i six** 50c size, PI „ CITROCARBONATE OtoV 2 for OIL $1.25 SIMILAR <1 m| 50c Wild Root Ba>% F**id 7l.vfU HAIR TONIC, 9Q^ with oil UU\, 75r Puretest ”(L „ MINERAL OflL 50c Prophylactic TOOTH BRUSH KOTEX 10. —and— 30 S 40c size Listcrine TOOTH PASTE, both for dal LYSOL CVk Cara Nome (?1 AA j (L.
