THE editor of The Tribune has
just received from* Senator
T. J. Walsh a copy of a bill intro
duced in the senate by Senator
Norris of Nebraska entitled the
"Farmers Export: Financing Cor
poration," together with a covering
letter in which Senator Walsh ex
presses the opinion that the prin
ciple of the bill should be called
to the attention of the farmers of
Montana. We agree with Senator
Walsh that the farmers of the
United States are not familiar
enough with th« vital part that
foreign trade, exports and imports
play in fixing the price of their
products and on their general pros
perity. Hon- Carl Vrooman, late
assistant secretary of agriculture
under the Wilson administration,
recently discussed in a public ad
dress the principle of this Norris
bill which deals with the export
side of the foreign trade as it af
fects farm products prices. He
"The farmer is being smothered
in his surplus crops. It remains to
be seen whether he is going to be
provided with export markets now
or a post mortem later. Unless
given at once a foreign outlet for
their surpluses a million more farm
ers will go benkrupt before fall.
Moreover, the business stagnation
and paralysis resulting from the
destruction of the purchasing power
of the farmer is costing the country
more every month than the total
value of these surpluses. If they
could be disposed of in no other
way, we all*'Would be- better off if
they were dumped into the sea.
"In tragic contr« t with this
stupefying .pcct.de, hundreds of
millions of people m Europe and
Asia are ragged, cold, starving and
unable to utilize either their idle
labor or their idle factories, for

pathetically eager to mu tip y many ;

manufactured goods upon which
we would have a first lien.
"All that is required to enable
us in a sane and businesslike way
to fill their aching economic void
from our swollen economic sur
plus, is a financial mechanism that
will extend to them the long time
credits to which they are reason
ably entitled, in order to enable
them to purchase our surplus cot

"Our ablest and most conserva
tive statesmen and bankers declare
this plan to be quite feasible. Ad
ministration leaders declare that
the creation of some such finan
cial instrumentality is the logical
and practical thing to do but that
unfortunately public opinion hsa
not yet crystallized effectively in
favor of such a step.
"In order to help focus the prac
tically unanimous latent sentiment
of farmers and Jbusiness men
throughout the country in favor of
such a project the agricultural,
business and labor organizations
are being invited to join in organ
izing mass meetings during the last
week in May and the first week in
June in every school district in
the United States, to pass resolu
tions and get petitions signed call
ing upon congress to create without
delay an agricultural foreign fi
nancing corporation to extend àp
propriate credits to nations, cor
porations, co-operative societies of
individuals wishing to buy our sur
plus farm products and having
real security to offer.
"Luckily, not a dollar of the ini
tial capital of the corporation wili
have to be taken from the taxpay
ers' pockets. It can be loaned by
act of congress from the profits so
recently made by the U. S. Grain
corporation. In order to repay as
soon as possible the government's
fifty million dollar advance, each
farmer could be required to buy
ten per cent of the amount of his
export sales in stock of the fi
nancing corporation, and in order
to enlarge the scope of its opera
tions the finance corporation should
be empowered to issue and sell de
bentures up to a maximum of ten
times its paid in capital.
"Representatives of farm or
ganizations will be working with
our congressmen, senators and
committees from now on until the
bill finally becomes a law. If it is

when as simple a device could have
unloosed so many pent-up energies
and brought about so widespread a
business revival. Such a step
would tend gradually to relieve the

in turn would relieve the strain
they are placing on the large cen

"By restoring to the farmer a
part of his lost purchasing power,
the goods would begin to move off
the shelves of the retailers, and
warehouses of the wholesalers and

would be set in motion. The em

"America, that amazed the world
by its intelligence and driving pow

and sickened the world since the
signing of the armistice, by its
pathological and suicidal unwill

to nations having ample security to
offer in exchange for our swollen
and rotting surpluses. But I am
an optimist. I realize that Amer

spiritual. While Europe has giant

who resolutely refrained from kiss

Mr .Vrooman says nothing of the
import side of foreign trade as in
fluencing farm prices and all other
prices, but it- ought not be hard to
understand that if foreign nations
can sell us no goods they can buy
no goods unless they have gold. It
is useless to give them long time
credit unless they can pay at the
end of' the credit and they must
pay in goods of some kind. Con
gress is now engaged in framing
a tariff bill designed to keep all
foreign goods out of our markets.
Already Europe is unable to pay
the interest in gold on the fifteen
or twenty billion dollars she owes
us. It is useless to increase the
debt unless we are prepared to take
our pay in what she has to give us,
and that is goods and not gold.

Washington, June ll.-f-Is the city
of Washington to become a tangled
ränge of skyscrapers, like lower New
York, or is it to be developed as a
thing of balanced architectural beauty
as its founders planned?
Now that the war emergency, with
its justification for housing the gov
ernment anywhere, is over, this
question is receiving a good deal of dis
cussion. Some think that the old
buildings and the temporary buildings
should be replaced - by typical modern
office structures, so that the greatest
.possible amount of space may be had
for the money expended. Others con
tend that the capital of the nation
should be a thing of beauty, and that
each building should be a unit in a
carefully considered artistic scheme.
Meantime, what actually exists is a
curious mixture. The old government
buildings, of which the state, war and
navy building ia the best example, are
curious survivals of an old type of
architecture. They are picturesque,
uncomfortable and inconvenient. Most
of the more recent permanent build
ings, like the new interior building,
are exactly like the office structures
found in every American city. And all
about and between these representa
tives of the old America and the new
are the acres of wooden shacks, built
during the war and still occupied be
cause there is nowhere else for their
occupants to go.
L'Enfant, the man who planned this
city, seems to be forgotten, and with
his influence is going some of the pic
turesqueness which has always made
Washington a sightseers' paradise. Not
even the most amateurish traveler
would stop to gape at any of the new
red tape factories, or describe one of
them in letters home.
It is true that some of the newer
buildings are strictly temporary in char
acter. Thus, the department of jus
tice, a tall white stone office building
is merely rented by the government.
Some day—perhaps when the present
commodious quarters are outgrown—
there will be a specially built depart
ment of justice.
Temporary Buildings.

Thea« purely utilitarian structures
are regarded as temporary, but the
government moves ponderously with a
great and prolonged rumbling for every
inch it advances. It will be years be
fore all these emergency buildings are
discarded. And when they are, what
are the permanent ones to be like?
We can get a good idea by turning
to the admittedly permanent govern
ment building latelly erected. The In
terior, Labor. Commerce, Engraving
and Internal Revenue buildings.
Only the Internal Revenue building,
across the street from the treasury,
is an exception to the tendency to
ignore architecture and tradition. It
is a return to the style of the treasury,
and would be one of the show places
of the show places of the district if it
were surrounded by shrubbery and
grounds instead of being jammed on
one side by a theater and at the back
by a bank.
The New Buildings.
The others are long blocks of brick
or stone. They are efficient office
buildings, but as material for souvenir
post cards or a background for tour
ists to have their pictures taken
against, they are distinctly inferior to
the old be-columned buildings.
The last anybody rfeally heard of art
in connection with government offices
was in 1912. Then designs were un
der consideratiou for State, Commerce,
Justice and Supreme Court buildings.
The drawings were dignified and im
posing, with the classic arches, friezes,
statuary, and columns, so long sacred
to the temples of government activity.
These needed buildings were to be
located south of Pennsylvania avenue,
where the government owns large
tracts of land, still presumably reserv
ed for government structures. In this
section there is room for a number of
buildings, each with the spacious out
look, which, to L'Enfant's mind, was
to be the great charm of Washing
ton. The proposed buildings were
planned and assigned to definite places
in this spacious parking. And there
their history ended.
The government structures now
south of Pennsylvania avenue, com
pared with those north of it in the
business section are ample evidence of
I'Enfant's wisdom. Nearly all of the
show buildings ar e south of the av

fact that there is no direct thorough

Prepared Exclusively tor The Tribus*
Today 1 * Sub fact:
The majority of the press has set
its stamp of approval upon the ap- 1
pointment of Albert D. Lasker as Î
chairman of the I'nited States ship-!
ping board, a job that is generally ad
mitted to be a thankless if not a hope
less one. Of course, not everybody is
pleased, and the disappointment ex
pressed by the Springfield Republican
(Ind.) is echoed by a small minority.
Under the caption, "A Board of
Novices." the Richmond Times Dis
patch (Dem. I predots "a sorry out
look."' It quotes the Springfield Re
publican's remark that instead of
choosing a man of the calibre of the
president of the steel corporation tfie
president took Mr. Lasker, "who
knows little or nothing about shipping,
or the export trade, although he is re
puted to have interests in an automo
bile company, a pork and beans fac
tory, a cereal food concern, and the
Chicago National league baseball club."
The Times Dispatch suggests that "per
haps Mr. Harding is not altogether to
blame" for he tried, so it is said, to
get experienced men. but ended up
with what savors of political appoint
ments." On this "landlocked" ship
ping board, says the Baltimore Even
ing Sun (Ind. Dem.) "we find poli
ticians a-plenty." and "sectional con
siderations." the Brooklyu Eagle (Ind.
Dem.) complains, have had loo much
influence in the appointments, for
what, is needed "is a national policy
rather than a program designed to
serve the purpose of locality."
Such criticisms, however, are the.
exception and not the rule, and the
Democratic Roanoke (Va.) World
News considers it "most fortunate that
th e Democrats are inclined to criti
cize" the Lasker appointment, for "if
one may judge from his past record"
the new chairman "will make good in
a big way." With this statement the
Memphis News Scimitar (Ind.) agrees
declaring that the affairs of the ship
ping board "will be carried ou in a
vigorous, business-like manner." The
Pittsburgh Gazette Times (Rep.) ap
parently has a similar estimate of Mr.
Lasker and his new associates as well,
for it. remarks:
"What, is wanted is action. Happily
we shall get that now with a board
composed of men who can and will co
operate under the leadership of au ex
executive deeply concerned for pro
moting the welfare of the nation."
The Vork Evening Post (Ind.),
too, finds the appoi ^ments "on the
whole," good. "A bVeintpi task lies
before the board," says the Post, and
"Mr. Lasker, the new chairman, is a
shrewd and energetic business man."
The "welcome news to Republicans
and Democrats alike" of these appoint
ments, as the Florida Metropolis
(Jacksonville, Dem.) puts it, means
the beginning of a policy, says the
Washington Post (Ind.), that the coun
try "will hail with satisfaction and de
The fact that none of the members
come from the great ports is consid
ered a distinct advantage by the Port
land Oregonian (Ind. Rep.):
"We may now expect to see," it
says, "the government's merchant fleet
administered to serve the commerce of
all the people without special favor to
any port wher e shipping business is
now concentrated nor to any shipping
companies, but without discrimination
against them."
"The chief function of the board,
which is "to find a market in other
countries for the surplus products of
the American nation," may be especial
ly served," th e Albany Times-Uaton
(Ind.) believes, under the chairin'in
ship of Mr. Lasker, for. in the opinion
of the Tacoma Ledger (Ind.) "he is an
organizer and a business man of ex
ceptional ability, whose sound judg
ment and quick decision have earned
him millions in his own business."
Another potential quality of Mr.
Lasker is seen by the Syracuse Post
Standard (Rep.) in the fact that he
was "Johnson's supporter in Chicago"
and "stands well with the congress
men in the trans-Mississippi," there
fore, he will doubtless be able to bring
about tariff adjustments "to meet the
needs of American exports as well as
protection against imports," which the
Post-Standard thinks is necessary for
the success of our merchant marine.
Several newspapers, while they have
no adverse criticism to register, feel
that the choice of Mr. Lasker is. as the
Lynchburgh News (Dem.) remarks,
"an experiment." It would be difficult,
says the Houston Post (Dem.) "to
imagine a more difficult job than he
has had wished on him by thç 1'resi-^
dent. If he fills it satisfactorily he will!
have proved worthy of all that his
admirers have said of his business
genius." The New York Times find.

new chairman as " a human dynamo"

will certainly need in his new posi
The Sioux City Journal (Rep.)
which hints that "a higher call may
await Mr. Lasker if his conduct of the
shipping board is successful" feels that
since he has "political ambitions, his
energy as chairman of the shipping

a way as to win the approval of the

nizes the administration's desire to
fight shy " in every line of endeavor
of anything approaching government
ownership," it nevertheless feels that
the nation "may conceivably do better
to hang on to its merchant fleet un
til the market has recovered somewhat
than to sell when prices are at the
bottom." The New York Posh (Ind. I
looks at the shipping board's task in
a slightly different light. It sa.vs:
