Expenditures fall into two classes: Those incident to the ordinary con duct of government affairs, and those which arise out of the current emergency. It is not to be expect ed that the operation of the neces sary federal machinery will be im peded by appreciable cuts, and there is no marked tendency to dis regard the demands of what has be come known in common speech as the emergency. Upon the other hand, the Administration has not committed itself to a general tax raise. About all that can be said is that the books are being gone over and the cash counted. Fixlfig up the budget is a man’s job and something for experts to handle. Balancing the budget contrary to popular belief, is not a task for the experts. It has to be done by the masses. That is one instance in which every administration, wheth i er republican or democratic, acts with non-partisan impartiality. No one is denied a government position when it comes to balancing the bud get. There was a time when the Span ish did their fighting elsewhere than in Spain, as Peru, Mexico, Holland, England and many other countries can bear witness. Just now the Spanish have on their hands a rev olution which may end in a dicta torship. War is bad anywhere. It takes its worst form when it is in the nature of internal strife. Char ity should begin at home. The same cannot be said of i conflicts at arms. Thousands now living can recall the period when the Civil War, though in the past, still embit tered and separated the North and the South in the United ’Stated Spain is none too strong and none too prosperous, at best. It is un fortunate that she is driving a wedge into her own structure. Students in the Chicago schools “walk out” in protest against some thing they do not like. A walk-out in a school is a good thing, but it should be of the old fashioned two man variety. The writer recalls more than one school walk-out that was salutary, but the teacher con stituted the rear-guard, armed with a substantial paddle. What happen ed after the door was closed need not be discussed. A prominent person expressed the opinion that when one has held office and then retired, he should keep his nose out of the affairs with which, formerly, he was actively concerned. The wisdom of that view is to be questioned. It is true that no one can be more of a clog and a nuisance than the has-been who still hopes to keep his hand on the helm. It is equally true that at all times and in all places the world has been too blind to the teachings of experience. The pro per course is to admit the super annuated or supernumerary states man freely to an open forum, and then exercise a sound eclecticism in profiting by what he has to say. The grand jury considering the case of Bruno Hauptmann sends a baliff from the jury room to report on the score in the World Series. Some are inclined to think that this indicates a lack of attention to the serious matter under consideration. Is it not possible that justice can be accomplished best by a ball-play (Continued on Page Four) DEL DIMOND OPERATED ON VERY SERIOUS (By The Associated Press) WASHINGTON, Nov. 13—Dele gate from Alaska, Anthony J.
