Hoover Urges ?
American Cure
For Social His
Average Man Refuses To
Be Mere Commodity and
Asks Rights Instead of
Benevolence, He Says
Socialism Has Failed
Demand* Solidarity of In?
terest in Every Section
Engaged in Industry
For the forthcoming July number of
?System" Herbert Hoover has written
?ti article dealing with industrial prob?
lem*- It is called "The Paramount
Business of Every American Family
To-day" *nd discuscea not only causes,
but remedies.
"Now, exactly ?what the worker is re?
filing to be Is a commodity," writes
Mr. Hoover. "Your average man is no
longer content to be merely a part o?
the 'iabor supply.' By and large, the
employs?? of the country are looking
for a position of right Instead of a posi?
tion o? consideration?that is, they
*a_t their rights instead of benevo?
Rights of Labor
"Exactly what those rights are is the
question that we have to solve, not
only from an economic, but also a
human point of view. This is oui
largest national problem, for in de?
fault of a better work relation we
shall have decreased instead of in?
creased production, and hence a lower?
ing standard of living. And if oui
standard of li-ing goes down it wil
hardly be worth while to consider oui
ether national aspirations, for then wi
shall have failed in our real basis ol
being a democracy.
?'The problem goes far beyond th<
mere sott?ng of disputes. I have seei
growing out of the masses of people it
every country aspirations for a grea
economic change. That change broadb
???ill be that those who work with thei:
hands will obtain a larger proportioi
of this world's goods and those whi
vork with their brains will obtain less
Those who do not work will probabl;
obtain nothing. Hence it appears t<
me that any solution to this problen
must go deeper than questions o
strikes, lock-outs or arbitrations. W>
have got to go sooner or later to th'
root of this difficulty. We must begii
by creating somehow and somewher
1 a solidarity of interest in every sec
tion of the people conducting our in
?ustrial machine.
"Before thinking of remedies let u
consider causes, fully recognizing a
once that there is no one single caus
of social unrest, and that to argu
from a single cause is to confess t
dense dogmatism. A strong factor i
the growth of machine production, i
which thp ownership of the tools o
production?that is, capital?has ?c
only grown more important, but ha
also become more dependent upo
iabor. and both have become wholly d<
pendent upon the public. None at
self-sustaining. They form an indivis
ible trinity?but each member at som
time or other thinks that it may g
on alone just as a monarch frequent]
imagines that he can do what he lik?
with his people. Capital has thougl
itself supreme; labor, now recognizin
that capital without it is useless,
beginning to think that capital itse
is useless and that labor is suprem
The Public
"The public is demanding a servie
of both at a price neither can perforn
There are many other more apparer
cause?, such as the rise in the cost c
living, unrestrained speculation, spei
tacular instances of excessive profit
excessi-.-p accumulation and misuse <
wealth, inequality in readjustments (
wage schedules, release of ideas ar
emotions by the war, social revolutioi
ary theories imported from Europe, tl
belief that free speech is restricted, ii
ttrmittent employment, fear of unen
ployment, excessive hours of work i
certain industries, lack of adequa'
housing, unnecessarily high infai
mortality in industrial centers and tl
loss of personal contact in large indu
trial units."
Hoover finds that these problen
were with us long before the wa
which served to intensify them. Th?
cannot, he argues, be controlled \
law or by legalistic process or repre
sion. Compulsory arbitration, he hold
is a substitution of government contr
for competition, "for if a court nu
control wages it will in effect contr
industry and in the end stifle it." Th
he calis socialism without its te

-ion leads to the border of martyrdo
and tends to make for compulsory er
pjoyment and a compulsory wage ai
a:so compulsory profits."
Turning to the radical attempts
government in Europe, he cites stati
B? to show that it has failed to a
c?mphsh anything constructive.
'Although socialism has now prov
??elf with rivers of blood and suffe

Mas Been Gaining Power
But in addition, Mr. Penrose has ap?
parently steadily gained power with Re?
publican political leader? throughout
the country, at the very time when the
influence of most of the other surviving
"old guard" members apparently had
been waning. The ?harp difference be?
tween Senator Henry Cabot Lodge and
ex-Senator Crane, in Massachusetts,
for instance, is believed to have had
considerable to do with the announced
retirement from the national committee
of Mr. Crane, and the primary in Mas?
sachusetts showed that Mr. Crane was
very far from dominating his own state.
? Mr. Crane's political judgment was
! highly regarded, but he did not have
?the tremendous following of men who
controlled delegates in other states
which Mr. Penrose could have carried
into the Republican convention with
Speculation as to the possible effect
on candidates of the incapacity of Pen

j the "big boss" had not told any one

deed he had made up his mind, accurate

Politicians Pnxzled
Belief here i? that Mr. Penrose actu?
ally had not made up his mind. Cer
i tainly he has given no satisfaction to
; many anxious inquirers who have been
in Philadelphia in the last few week?.
; His statement with regard to Senator
, Knox, which was so generally taken to
; be an indication that he was for him,
; was not so taken by the practical poli
: ticians. They pointed out that Mr.
Penrose merely said he thought Mr.
Knox the best fitted man for the place,
, and said nothing about supporting him.
| Added to this is the certain knowledge
: on their part that Senator Penrose has
? not turned his hand to line up any del
; egates for Mr. Knox, although it would
have been very easy for him to have
done so in some instances. All some
? of the leaders who visited Mr. Penrose
j wanted to know was the name of the
man to whom he wanted them to give
i their delegates. But he has declined
even to give them instructions, for the
I present.
"The only way you can communicate
1 with Penrose is with a ouija board,"
! Livingston Morse, the Missouri Repub?
lican leader, commented to some
friends here on his way home from

Teachers' Union Asks
Dismissal of Gilbert
The Teachers' Union of the City of
j New York has sent a letter to the ?ec
! rotary of the State Board of Regents
j asking the dismissal from office of
! Frank Gilbert, Deputy Commissioner
I of Education, on the ground that he
? aided in the preparation of one of the
? Lusk educational bills that were vetoed
! by Governor Smith. Henry R. Lin
I ville, president of the Teachers' Union,
I wrote that Deputy Attorney General
Samuel Berger had said that he was
assisted in the preparation of Senate
bill 1175 by Mr. Gilbert.
This bill would have required all
teachers in non-sectarian and private
i schools to submit to a test of loyalty.
! It was strongly opposed by the Teach
; ers' Union. Governor Smith, in affix?
ing his veto, said:
"This bill must be judged by what
can be done under its provisions. It
i permits one man to place upon any
teacher the stigma of disloyalty, and
this without even a hearing or a trial.
j The bill unjustly discriminates against
1 teachers as a class. It deprives
teachers of their right to freedom of
i thought; it limits the teaching staff
\ of the public schools to those only
j who lack the courage or the mind to
| exercise their legal right to just criti
! cism of existing institutions. The bill
'{ confers upon the Commissioner of Ed
i ucation a power of interference with
freedom of opinion which strikes at
; the foundations of democratic educa
! tion."
In its letter to the State Board of
Regents the Teachers' Union says tho
Governor's description of this bill is
practically an indictment of any edu?
cational official "who, by participating
in the preparation of the bill, appeals
to set his approval upon measures cf
this kind."

For Overturn

least meet the living costs that have
outstripped income? by reason of
this era of frenzied profiteering and
gambling. This must be done with?
out delay.
Second?Immediate effective action
mu?t be taken to prevent continued
increases in the cost of living.
Third?There must be an end to
the enactment of the kind of legisla?
tion typified by the Esch-Cummins
railroad law and the Kansas- Court
of Industrial Relations law. There
must be an end to legislative repres?
sion, restriction and coercion. Not
only must there be an end to the
enactaent of legislation of this char?
acter, but there must be a repeal of
legislation already enacted.
Fourth?The Congress of the
United States will do well to give
immediate and effective considera?
tion to the proposal of the American
labor movement, that control of
credit capital be taken from private
financiers and placed in the hands
of a public trust, to be administered
upon principles voluntary and co?
operative in character. This will
strike a vital blow toward eliminat?
ing the abuses of profiteering and
Fifth?The Congre?? should pro?
vide immediately for full publicity
for Income tax returns.
Hold? Wages Unfair
While the workers have been asked
"to be patient ir the name of patriot?
ism and business welfare and in the
name of almost everything else that
could be invoked by men who have a
genius for that kind of thing," Gompers
asserts that latest available official
statistics show the average union wag?
?the highest wage for workers?-to
have advanced only 55 per cent since
1914, against an average advance in the
cost of living of 96 per cen?k.
"Thousands of Ar&erican people have
had little or no increase in income
since 1914 and have actually been com?
pelled, therefore, to accept a reduction
in real wages of approximately 50 por
cent," he declares. Against these con?
ditions Mr. Gomperi names twenty-one
great corporations of the country
reaping a last year's profit averaging
436 per cent above the gains of previ?
ous years. He recalls the anti-high
cost of living appeal of President W'l
son before Congress on August 8,1919,
with specific suggestions to curb profi?
teering and enforce the Lever act and a
secona appeal by the President along
the same lines on December. 2, 1919.
"So far as effectiveness is concerned,"
says Mr. Gompers, '?the President may
as well have stood <n the steps of the
Capitol and spoken ?o the automobiles
usually parked on ejther side."
"The present Congress may be in?
dicted fairly as a Congress of incom?
petence on the cost jf living issues. It
may be indicted as * Congresss which
has been negligent of duty and
thoughtless of th? welfare of the
people. .
Attorney General Scored
"The government departments, as for
example the Department of Justice,
may be indicted for incompetency on
the same grounds. What has been more
ludicrous in American public life dur?
ing the past year t?,an the announce?
ment of the Department of Justice to
the effect that it has abandoned its
high cost of living campaign because
of the high coat of the campaign?
Prosecution of those seeking to con?
trol supplies and prices in contraven?
tion of the Lever act has constituted
one of the saddest comedies of the last
few months.
"There ia no nee? to review the rec?
ords of the Department of Justice in
the prosecution of big profiteers. There
is, in fact, no record to review. . . .
Perhaps there never has been a time
in American history when this kind of
freebooting was conducted on such a
large scale as at present. If Congress
had seen fit to respond to the wishes
of the President and enact some of the
legislation suggested by him, it would
have been possible to curb, at least to
some extent, this unlicensed plunder?
ing of the necessities of life. For Con?
gress to deny that relief is possible is
for Congress to confess the incompe?
tency of which the evidence convicts it.
"The Attorney General has found it
possible to indict corner grocers and
small haberdashers for offenses which
are of no moment at all in comparison
to the whole situation. ... He has
found it possible to do a number of in?
effective things, but seems to have
found it beyond his capacity to do ef?
fective things.
Discusses Anti-Labor Bills
"Proof of legislative incompetence
accumulates and the indictment of the
66th Congress grows," says Gompers in
branding, as "repressive legislation"
against the workers, the Esch-Cum?
mins railroad law, which disallows
wag? adjustments during ? strike, and
the attempted enactment of the "peace?
time) ?edition bill" of similar purport,
which he Salares organized labor de?
feated. He also cites the Kansas Court
of Industrial Relations law, which
makes strikes illegal, and adds:
"While profiteers have reaped untold
gains, while they have piled fortune
upon fortune in gold beyond the
dreams of avarice, makers of law wave
gone about the business of writing
into the Statutes measures for the sup?
pression of trade union activity. Out
of this repression and ont of this ruth
leSB exploitation and profiteering there
has been bred among the working peo?
ple a deep and stern resentment," says
Mr. Gompers. "No excuse will be ac?
cepted from the Congress of the United
States for itB failure to find proposals
of constructive nature to meet a situa?
tion that has long been of alarming
proportions and of the ?utmost gravity
and significance.
Finds Workers Aronsed
"The working people of the United
States are speaking to-day in man?
datory terms. They nave reached the
point at which they will no longer en?
dure or suffer injustice by legislative
enactment and profiteering by private
pirates. If those in control of fne leg?
islative destinies of the country do not
understand the needs of the workers,
at least the workers themselves under?
stand. They know the condition in
which they find themselves. They know
the restraint which they have prac?
ticed. They know the limit which there
is to their endurance. The service they
have given entitles them to the right to
be heard. They will be heard. Their
demand to be heard is a demand which
comprehends the welfare of the

fore it suggestions for effective action
and plans for real relief. It can say

Says Employers Are Warring
"The declaration of war by powerful
and unscrupulous employers is recog?
nized by the working people of
America. For sixteen months and
more these employers have been con?
ducting a silent, insidious warfare. In
the face of this warfare the labor
movement will stand firm and will tol?
erate no breakdown of its standards.
It will resort to no unduo haste and it
will countenance no conduct that is net
in strictest accord with trade union
traditions, trade union laws and rules
and the highest ccficept of the patriotic
duty of American citizens. But war
forced upon the workers must be rec?
ognized, and it is recognized.
"The war of another character, but
driving toward the same end typified
by the enactments and the philosophy
of the present Congress, can be no less
ignored, and it will be no less ignored.
The working people of the United States
are aroused, not only as trade unionists
but a? trade unionists, workers and
American citizens.
"There is a determination through?
out the United States to right the
wrongs that have been inflicted. The
indictment is based upon the estab?
lished facts of what has taken place.
The remedy in every case must be a
remedy applied with the facts in view.
"We are going forward in the United
States, not backward. No American
citizen will rejoice that we have not
been able to go forward with the pres?
ent Congress, but since we have not
been able to go forward with the pres?
ent Congress it is the duty of Ameri?
cans to elect a Congress with which
we can go forward- To that task, then,
bend all effort."

McCombs Urges
Cox as Choice
Of Democrats
Former Democratic Chair?
man Asserts Governor
Is Only Member of Party
Who Can Win Ohio
McAdoo Poor Candidate
Declares His Nomination
Would Carry "Handicap
of Crown Prince idea"
William F. McCombs, former chair?
man of the Democratic National Com?
mittee, in a statement issued last night,
declares he favors the nomination of
Governor James M. Cox, of Ohio, for
President at the San Francisco
convention. He said Ohio will be a
pivotal state in the campaign and
Governor Cox is the only Democrat
capable of carrying it.
The selection of William G. McAdoo,
Mr. McCombs said, would not be advan?
tageous to the party, because it would
"carry Into the campaign the handicap
of the Crown Prince idea, or to put it
more elastically, a suggestion of a
dictated dynastic succession; and our
opponents might well say something
along the line of the creation of an
American empire."
Mr. McCombs said he recently had a
talk with Governor Cox and was con?
vinced the latter would not accept the
nomination for Vice-President, either
as the running mate of Mr. McAdoo or
of any one else.
State Pride Big Factor
"The last time he ran he was elected
by some 18,000 votes and the rest of
his ticket was defeated badly," said Mr.
McCombs. "In my opinion, he can
carry the state for President, and it
is doubtful if any other Democrat can.
A popular misconception exists as to
the state which turned the tide for Mr.
Wilson in 1916. If a nomination had
been given to a strong Ohio candidate
a Republican would new be in the
White House. It would have smoothed
over the factional differences then ex?
isting there and state pride would have
carried Ohio for the nominee from
Concerning the reports that Mr.
McAdoo intended to rely on a large vote
from railroad men Mr. McCombs said:
"No man ever gets a class vote and if
a class has an intimation that it is
to be delivered at the polls it votes
contrary to the intimation. Further?
more, it is an insult to a class vote to
say it can be delivered." Mr. McCombs
said Mr. McAdoo "would carry all the
handicaps of the present Administra?
tion." The same, he said, would be
true of A. Mitchell Palmer.
Vice-President Marshall can have the
delegation from his home state as long
as he wants it, but the difficulty in the
way of his candidacy is that he has
not been active, according to Mr. Mc
[ Combs. He declared that Governor Ed
! wards, of New Jersey, "attracts many
people of sound business judgment and
looms large in many quarters."
Opposes League as Chief Issue
Taxation and problems arising out
of monetary inflation rather than the
league of nations should be made vital
I issues from the Democratic standpoint,
I Mr. McCombs said. "A tax plan should
be evolved which would spur the in
| dividual to produce and make money,"
! he said. "In connection with a luxury
I tax and production, I suggest one
j angle. If a man has two chauffeurs
he should pay a tax on the second.
? This would raise a goodly revenue, but
j in any event would tend to send people
| into active production."
The question of the freedom of the
! seas, Mr. McCombs said, should be
| considered by the Democratic conven
| tion. If the convention considers the
i league of nations at all it should take
j up those of President Wilson's four
I teen points, which deal with the free
! dorn of the seas and with the right of
i every people to choose its form of
government, he said.
The principles of Thomas Jeffers"1
should not be forgotten by any dt'i*
gate to the convention, he said. "They
are our chief reason for our existence
as a party and we have never gone
wrong when we adhered to them
strictly," he added.

Have Responded, Hitch-1

WASHINGTON, May 23.?Campaigrt
expenditures and pledges made in be?
half of candidates for the Republican
and Democratic Presidential nomina?
tions will be placed under the search?
light of Senate committee inquiry be?
ginning to-morrow.
Heads of the various campaign or?
ganizations summoned by Chairman
Kenyon of the special investigating
committee over the week end have
answered in sufficient number to guar?
antee a large quota of witnesses for the
first day's examination. Frank H.
Hitchcock, former Postmaster General
and one of the managers of the cam?
paign for Major General Wood, was
among those who responded to-day to
the telegraphed messages.
As the first step the committee plans
to inquire into the amount of money ex?
pended in each campaign, taking the
statement of the manager or leading
.promoter as a preliminary. The^ tele-I
j grams requesting attendance also asked
i that each man bring with him records
! as to all funds contributed, the sources
from which they came and the places
| and methods in which they were spent.
In addition, the committee asked for
I all correspondence relating to the so
? licitation and contribution of funds.
Chairman Kenyon has indicated that
! the course of the inquiry would be de
j termined very largely upon the facts
i and statements brought out by the
preliminary examination.
The order in which those called will
j be heard has not been determined. No
; refusal to the call to appear has been
| received by the committee and none is
j expected. The messages sent did not
| necessitate an acknowledgement, but
i those responding, in addition to Mr.
? Hitchcock, include L. L. Emerson,

Sentiment for Howard
For Governor Growing
C. V. Collins, Rensselaer County
Leader, Latest to Urge Jurist
for Republican Nomination
Cornelius V. Collins, Republican
chieftain of Rensselaer County, has
been busy ascertaining sentiment
? among party leaders in behalf of Jus
j tice Wesley O. Howard, of Troy, as
I Republican candidate for Governor.
! While Judge Howard, who is known as
I the "farmer jurist," has not announced
! himself as a candidate, the activity of
his friends indicates he would not ob?
ject to leaving the bench to sit in the
Governor's ehair. Alba M. Ide, million?
aire collar manufacturer, who is an
alternate delegate to the national
? convention, also is working to create
sentiment te induce Judge Howard to
announce his candidacy.
The fact that the Republican Club
of Plattsburg, of which John F. O'Brien,
Republican leader of Clinton County,
ia a member, has adopted resolution?
in favor of Judge Howard is taken to
mean that Mr. O'Brien is friendly tj ;
Howard's nomination. A Republican
club of Utica also has adopted r?solu
tions calling for the nomination of '
Judge Howard.
Friends of the Troy Supreme Court \
justice assert he will prove of immeas- !
urable value as ? vote-getter by reason
of his popularity with the Italians and
Irish. He was one of the first to de?
clare in Italy's behalf in the Flume
controversy and bas long been insistent
for Irish freedom. He is an implacable
foe to the Wilson league of nations. '
The further fact that when he is not
holding court he is conducting his
farm is cited as being something that
would please the farmers. Before go?
ing on the Supreme bench, Judge How?
ard served two terms as District At?
torney of Rensselaer County, being the
first Republican in a decade to carry the
county at the time, which was a Gib?
raltar of Democracy.
