A GREAT NATIONAL NEED
"National sentiment on the subject of responsible nnd visible executive leader
ehip in matters of finance and administration Is Impressively shown in the replies
to a series of questions recently propounded .by the National Economic league.
The proposals embodied in the questions, together with the percentages of afltlr
BUitlve replies, were as follows:
' (1) Kor open, visible executive leadership in matters of national finance and
' j(2) Kor a budget prepared under the direction of the president, and explained
add defended on the floor of congress by the cabinet?
? (3) Kor change of the rules of congress to give the cabinet,the privileges of
the floor without a right to vote 92?V
? (4) Kor changes in statute law making it the duty of the cabinet to take
leadership before congress and the country in matters of finance and administra
(5v Kor amendment to the constitution to provide for such procedure in case
congress refuses to make the necessary changes in rules and statute lavs'?72*c.
| This is a subject that has been discussed from time to time, but on which
no action ever has been taken. Under our constitution the executive, legislative
aqd Judicial departments of government are distinct and separate. The principle
is'unquestionably correct, but In carrying It out we have gone to extremes. As
suredly. the framers of the constitution never contemplated that the executive
artd legislative departments should not communicate and co-operate for the
welfare of the nation. The powers of each are and should always remain Inde
pendent. but to dertv inter-discussion of problems affecting the millions of people
oil whom both departments are the servants is an absurdity.
( Boasting of our democratic form of government, we have retain-'d a system
of Invisible control of the affairs of the nation, whilo the great democracies of
Europe have adopted, without exception, the principle of open and responsible
leadership. When a measure 4s introduced in congress it is referred to a com
mittee. which considers It and makes a report, after which congress debates and
votes upon it. A party or an ndministrat.on is held responsible to somj extent
for what It accomplishes or falls to accomplish, but this responsibility Is always
basy and indefinite.
? What the Keonomlc league proposes is that the executive department shall
prepare certain measures, particularly the annual budget, and that members of the
cdbinet shall appear on the floor of congress to explain and defend them Recently
a .budget measure was passed. It provides that the budget shall be initiated by
the executive department and transmitted to congresa. With that the executive
responsibility ceases and Is shifted to congress, where all direct responsibility Is
' If It were the duty and privilege of cabinet members to appear on the floor
of congress to explain and defend their budget and other measures, leadership and
responsibility would be clean cut and unmistakable. Such appearances and dis
cussions would be featured In every newspaper in the country, and the people
would know what was being done and by whom.
Every progressive nation of Europe has such a system of administrative
responsibility and publicity. Why does America lag behind?
BRITAIN'S MASTER DIPLO
? In a New York paper we read the
fdllow'.ng special dispatch from London: -
,"It Is now said authoritatively that
Viscount I.asceUes proposed to Princess
MUry la the drawing room at Sandring- '
h?m palace after tea. This settles a
speculation that has engaged the news-)
pftpors for the last 10 days."
[This Is what we have all been waiting
"for. Of course we have been mildly
[interested in the Washington conference
'and ft few other minor matters, but
these have only served to occupy our
minds while the question of historic im
portance was being settled.
?W? tremble to reflect on what might
have happened :f Viscount Lasceiles had
?proposed in s?me other part of the
palace or if he had proposed before In
stead of after tea There are man?
rooms in Sundringham palace, and each
ope. on an occasion such as this. Is
fraught with possibilities.
?Of course he would hardly propose :n
the kitchen or the attic, but Just th.n!?
oi all the other available places In a
building of that sir.e. Some of them,
doubtless, were too formal and others
efimlnated for \arlous good reasons.
.(V? can imagine that the drawing
? room, with the draw.ng all artistically
arranged, was exactly the right place.
The time is of even greater import
ance. Tea is one of the most re\ered of
Knglish institutions Before tea the
Kngllshman is looking forward to his
dally refreshment. It occupies his
mental processes to the exclusion of all
else. We see. then, how inopportune It
w'ould have been for the viscount to
propose to the princess before tea.
.After tea the Britisher lias that "All
?weil with the world" feeling. He leans
back compta.-ently, reflects that Brlt
tanla rules the waves, and hums a few
. bare of "God <?ave the King." After te i,
? ten. by all means, was '.he psychologi
cal time. Hia good judgment In this
alone would make Viscount I-asceites an
outstanding figure. The J'rinoe of Wales
should look to hia laurels.
' Contrary to the general belief. a scien
tist states that there seems to be
! enough atmosphere on the moon to sup
port life. This will be Interesting, no
doubt, to that Individual who figures on
I being shot to the moon on a rocket next I
' IRISH SITUATION AGAIN
That the negotiation? between Eng
land and Ireland are about to be broken
off. with the probability that armed
hostilities will be renewed, is the re
grettable news from Ix>ndon. Only n
few weeks ago hope that a final settle
men of the Irish trouble was approach
ing ran high. Crisis after crisis had been
passed successfully . The Sinn Fein had
abandoned its demand for full and im
mediate Independence, and the Firitlsh
government had expressed a willingness
to grant a decidedly liberal form of
Ulster, as ever, was the stumbling
block, but it was confidently belief!
that even that historic obstacle was in
^ fair way to he overcome. This expec
ts tatlon, unfortunately, was not realized,
solution was found that would sat
isfy both Ulster and the S;nn Fein. and
the long haggling has apparently worn
out the tempers of *oth sides With
this situation existing there is grave
danger that a vlo!?t mtve by one side
or the other will, precpipitatr all of the
old,Telgn of terror.
This is the most serious Irish devel
opment in many months. It may not
indicate an utterly hopeless situation,
but the outlook is crave.
LEST YOU FORGET ,
Early Christmas shopping has been
preached so many years and so vigor
ously that the public is fa.rly well edu
cated to this sensible and humanitarian
movement. All that 1" needed la an
o-nsional gentle reminder. The time
to buy Christmas things is now with us,
and purchases should not be delayed anv
longer than necessary. It is otilv lit
days more until the great holiday. That
is not to long ahead to de< Ide and buy.
Shoopers who buy earl> ha\e distinct
and worth while advantages over those
who wait until the last few days. Stocks
are full and not picked over, so that
possibilities or dc-irable selection are
greater. Both the giver and the recipi
ent ure assured of greater satisfaction
from a present bought when the choice
objects are still on the shelves. Then
the salespeople are not so busy, because
the last nilnutet rush still does come,
despite all that can be done. There is
satisfaction in entering a store and be
ing waited on Immediately and careful
ly. So shop early.
Members of the local tribe of weather
prohphets have been somewhat puaaled
recently by the actions of the weather

of the wind as of old. the vane remains
stationary at "nor-norwest." It appears
tl'.at the man who painted the steeple
was too liberal with his mixture.
