ROOSEVELT’S SECOND
TERM
Mr. Roosevelt’s second term as
President will start on January
20th, six weeks less than four years
since he was inaugurated on March
4, 1933. One effect of the Consti
tutional change in the date of
Presidential inauguration is to put
an end to the custom of great mili
tary parades with which^Presidents
have long been ushered in. Wash
ington is sometimes springlike in
March, but in January it is always
wintry.
DEATH ON THE HIGHWAY
While the year’s tally of auto
mobile deaths is not yet complete,
the figures already available make
it clear that the record of 1936
is higher than that of 1933. About
37,000 persons were killed in motor
accidents in the twelve months.
This brings the total number of
persons killed in America by motor
cars, in the 13 years since records
began to be kept, up to above
423,000. That is more by half
than all of the Americans who
have been killed in all our wars
from the Revolution down to the
World War. The motor car has
become the nation’s deadliest
weapon. With 2,000,000 more cars
on the roads, we may expect even
more highway deaths in 1937.
Those who have given this sub
ject the closest study agree that
the blame for most of these motor
killings lies not with the car nor
the road, but with t$ie driver.!
There are still twenty states in'
which no license is required to drive
a car; in many others, the exami
n-irirtrt rtf rlriv^rc frtr is no
perfunctory that possession of aj
driver’s license is no proof that it*
owner is a good driver.
The most dangerous place to
drive is on a wide, well-paved
highway on a clear day. That is
where and when motorists get
careless. Sunday is the most dan
geraus day in the week, Wednesday
the safest. Twice as many persons
are killed by cars between 7 and 8
o’clock in the evening as between
7 and 8 in the morning.
The motor death rate in the
cities is coming down, by reason of
better lighting, more effective
traffic control, and better enforce
ment of the traffic laws. The
rate is going up in the country. It
would take more money than the
taxpayers would stand for to light
and police a million miles of high
way.
The solution of the problem
would seem to be the better educa
tion of drivers, not so much in the
alert of driving but in what might
be called "motor manners.” If ev
ery driver behaved on the road with
the same consideration for others
that he shows elsewhere, the toll
of motor murders might be greatly
reduced.

• GOOD MEN ARE SCARCE
Every once in a while somebody’s
name will be mentioned and every
body present will say: "He’s a good
man.” But how often are most of
us moved to pay that tribute to
one of our fellow citizens?
The truth is that good men are
scarce. Good men, that is, in the
sense of being first-rate workmen
at their trades or professions, hon
est and upright, in all their deal
ings with others, independent and
self-reliant, industrious and sober.
The highest tribute one man can
pay to another is to say "He’s a
good man.”
Of how many in any community
can that be said? How many farm
ers are really g$od farmers? How
many workers in any trade can be
relied upon to do an honest day’s
work, and do everything as well
as it can be done?
From all over the country the
complaint is heard that good men
are scarce. Industrialists are saying
that there is a real shortage of
competent workers, in spite of all
the talk about unemployment.
Good men are seldom unemployed
and never for long.
Public attention has been di
rected in these recent years to the
plight of those who, for one reason
or another, have not been able to
earn a living. It might be a good
idea to pay a little attention to
the good men who have got along
without calling for help. They
are the "forgotten men.” Maybe
there are a lot more of them than
we realize. They are not heard
from so loudly as are the second
raters and the no-goods.

Refreshing Relief
When You Need a Laxative
Because of the refreshing relief It
has-brought them, thousands of w
and women, who could
afford much more ex
pensive laxatives, use
Black-Draught when
needed. It Is very eco

ble, highly effective. .. Mr. J. Lester
Roberson, well known hardware
dealer at Martinsville, Va., writes:
"I certainly can recommend Black
Draught as a splendid medicine. I
have taken it for constipation and
die dull feelings that follow, and
mve found it very satisfactory.”

NO ARGUMENT WANTED
Mrs. Wimpus: John dear, would
I you marry again if I were to die?
Wimpus: Now, Mary Ann, let’s
I not start an argument.
Await President’s Plans
ed. In the fact of demands by la
bor leaders for Federal wage ana
hour regulations, Mr. Roosevelt has
not committed himself. The possi
bility of seeking enlargement of
Federal power by constitutional
amendment was as much in the ait
as ever.
White House advisors were div
ided in their hopes and expecta
tions. One group would have the
President seek merely to consoli
date the policies of his first ad
ministration. Another would have
him project his program farther to
the left without pause to learn the
Supreme Court’s attitude toward
the Wagner labor act the social se
curity act, Federal encouragement
of municipal power projects and
other fundaments-1 c of his policy.
Those who know Mr. Roosevelt
well incline to look for a middle
course. He took the massive No
vember vote as an indorsement of
foundations laid. First, apparently,
will come an attempt to rivet those
PMBi
foundations.
Adjustments of details in the se
curity act can be expected to pre
cede any major extension, such as
applying the pension section to
more working classes. The prin
ciples of the tax on corporation
surpluses is considered in the law
to stay, but relief may be under
taken for debt-burdened corpora
tions.
Second, a gradual building on
the foundations in an attempt to
remove the paradox of widespread
unemployment at a time of recov
ery and to assure a steady farm in
come is in contemplation Post
master General Farley gave the
hint this week when he predicted
the next four years would bring
"valuable contributions to govern
mental reform.”
