(UP). —Highlights of President Roose velt's fireside chat last night in cluded: "Our needs are one in building an orderly economic democracy in which, all can profit and in which all can be secure from the kind of faulty economic direction which brought us to the hrink a* com mon ruin seven years ago.'' "I want to make it clear that no simple panacea can be applied to the drouth problem in the whole of the drouth area." "Spending like this (emergency projects) is not waste. It would i spell waste if we did not spend ! for such things now..." I . . It is worthwhile as a na ! tion to spend mo*:ey in order to I save money." I '"The maintenance of a fair equilibrium between farm prices and the prices of industrial prod ucts is an aim which we must keep ever before us. . . ." "It is worthy of note that on my entire trip, though I asked the questions dozens of times, I heard 1 no complaint against the charac : ter of a single works relief proj ! ect." "In the drouth area people are not afraid to use new methods to meet changes in nature and to correct mistakes of the past. . . . | They stand ready to fit, and not I to fight, the ways of nature." j "We are helping, and shall con tinue to help the farmer, to do those things, through local soil conservation committees and other co-operative local state and fed eral agencies of government." "We are going to have a farm policy that will serve the national welfare." "Government spending was in i large part responsible for keeping j industry going and putting it in a position to make re-employment possible." "Private enterprise is neces sary to any nation which seeks to maintain the Democratic form of government." "We do not surrender our re sponsibility to the unemployed." . . The government wants to use resource to get private work | for those now employed on gov ernment work and thu3 to curtail J to a minimum the government ex j pendimres for direct employ I ment." "In this country we insist, as! an essential of the American way of life, that the employer-employe ( I relationship should be one bc I tween free men and equals . . . We insist that labor is entitled to J as much respect as property. . ." "Tomorrow, Labor Day, belongs to all of us. . . Anyone who calls it a class holiday challenges the whole concept of American democ j racy." 161 ARRESTS WINSTON-SALEM, Sept. 7.— ' (UP)-—Sheriff Guy Scott reported ■ his officers made 161 arrests dur • 'njr August and traveled 28,071 miles on county business.
