What-I’s Washington Digest ﬁfd-Age Pension Schemes Figure 'ln Primaries in Several States [ad to Success. of Senator ‘Pepper in Florida and Defeat of McAdoo in California; Delude Age and Inﬁrm Voters; Fallacy of Plans Shown, By WILLIAM BRUCKART - WNU Service. National Press Bldg., Washington. D. C. WASHINGTON. —— A good many summers had nearly forgotten Mg Dr. Francis Townsend and his wrmonth pension plan until laid! they were suddenly awak ad by the far South and the far Vell- Sen. Claude Pepper won a Mocratic nomination to the sen .” in Florida largely because of mail of the Townsend plan and pg recently Sen. William G. Mc mhad his public career abruptly “mated because Sheridan Down q,'hil opponent for the Democratic ”Mal nomination in California. W and promised some fan- W scheme of paying S3O every May to persons over 50 years dam ‘ . In addition to these resuits, there we been 12 or 15 candidates for “nomination to the house of rep mentatiires who have won in prio man“ by saying the Townsend IE"! or the S3Q-every-Thursday or me other impossible and illogical and unsouxid pension plgn would be 1;; through congress. I cannot de scribe them all; they are obviously variations of the Townsend plan, and none of them will work any more than the Townsend bubble will work, and each has been used to delude aged and infirm voters whose ballots were needed to swing an eleCtion. u a tragic that such things have med. and are happening to m. The fact can not be ignored. m. because the condition is will. Theonethingtodo, then, Italian. is to attempt to disillusion he folks who have swallowed the dish words at those campaigners or has racketeera who are preying .- the iaith of iolhs who, through as bait of their own. do not have acce- te information that shows he nhemea to be rainbows. And. aaiar aahiatory records. nobody on “ever has found the end of the rahbawwherethepot of gold is ﬁled to be. lam not concerned about the pub lie career oi Mr. McAdoo who has has: in public service of! and on. since 1913. He never impressed me as being any great shakes of a statesman. As secretary of the team. he did the job probably' almt as well as the average politi calappointee. I never have had the pleasure of meeting Mr. Downey. Sol can't comment. Senator Pep per's senate record is a great deal like many another senator's record, and probably will continue to be just loco. In other words. here were two average senators—one winning vith the aid of the promises about lie Townsend plan and the other losing because he stayed away from such promises. although be m thrice blessed by the President tithe United States. That situation, alongwith some letters accusing me d Giving the Townsend plan a “si ht treatment" in thes'e columns. Items to warrant a new analysis of the conditions that now confront the Why. It Appears Towmendiam In Not Dead After All A: I said there is evidence that Wdism is not dead at all. It informed the basis of a dozen new Mceas. of which the silo-every t Thursday is but an example. It ' “med that this scheme was pro ﬁle! in California which, particu hﬂ! in its southern sections. has a M Population of aged people who have gone there to enjoy the famous Climate and have the health that it W 8 them. Old people are mili ‘mb behind these schemes. That ‘"lie of the reasons why Mr. Down -9! was able to boast more than a Million signatures to the petition that made the question an issue in California. And Florida. too. with ' ﬁne Winter climate. is a fertile ﬁeld for the racketeers who pro mote such ridiculous programs. It 5 l harsh thing to blame the M of these movements. all of M crop up during depression um”- uDon elderly people. It is n"timeless the cold fact that they "9 the type among whom such “heme: are promoted. and because he! have votes, the candidate for “Ce Stoops to the level of adding Me:- to hopes that never can be “ﬁlled in that manner. To Show how silly the scheme of ”ﬂew-Thursday is as a cam- Mm issue for Mr. Downey—just “ an examplehhe is a candidate h? the United States senate. The Den Non dream he has advocated is ”hailed as part of the welfare pro , ﬁrm 01 the state of California. How i 'DWney can do anything about its a member of the United States ”hate, I can not understand. and I ““131! doubt that Mr. Downey ““1 explain it. . inn” Will the plan work if made t 0 law without bankrupting the “.3“ Of California. I doubt that it a? work anyway. but assuming . ‘l‘. may work. the state will be “mulling a burden that will cost 10,3 much money that the Cali a books will be so far in the :30“ to cause them to appear Nat‘ched with blood. This idea of .391“ "Stamps" on each warrant cn Week so that an actual $1.04 has been afﬁxed by cash payment in a year will stop the transfer of them very shortly. Few storekeepers. for example, will accept them be yond the necessities of their tax payments to the state of California; it is certain also that those who con tinue to accept them would not pay the face value. and the possessor would be forced into paying higher prices for the things that he buys. That is, the possessor would be buy ing 50 cents worth of sugar and prob— ably would be handing over a dollar warrant for it. All of this is the result of a lack of conﬁdence among the people in any form of exchange except the currency that is backed and guaranteed by the United States. as has been shown so many times before. Downey Plan Would Make Trouble for New Dealer: ,’ Then, I believe I foresee some other trouble respecting such war rants as Mr. Downey’s scheme pro poses; not that I think his plan is worse than any others but it serves as an illustration. It is proposed that the possessor put a two-cent state stamp on the warrant for each week in his possession. or 52 such stamps in a year. Well. I imagine that the warrants would be in the hands of many persons who had no cash at all—not a cent. Immediate ly. there would be a cry go up to have the state supply the stamps tree. and it is quite certain that there would be some politicians dis honorable enough to campaign for ofﬁce on that issue. Now. assume that Mr. Downey comes to the senate; assume that he is elected over his Republican opponent in November. I seem to scent some added trouble for Pres ident Roosevelt and his New Deal friends who have been promising too many things and too much or them. 01 course, many persons be lieve that Mr. Roosevelt’s methods to date have encouraged all kinds of quackeries because he has talked at length of humanitarianism. He has aroused the minds of elderly persons who are suffering under conditions not of their own making. He has likewise aroused a lot at ﬂabby brained individuals among the younger people who live on il lusions. It is made to appear that congressional leaders; seeking to follow presidential policies. are go ing to be confronted with frequent bulges for national pensions _of a kind that no nation can bear. The number and type of these panaceas ebbs and ﬂows with the economic tide. When business is good and there is plenty of work, when storekeepers are able to sell and people are able to buy. we hear little or nothing of the dream-world children of the Townsends and the Downeys and the others. When there are “hard times" and there are thousands Upon thousands with out work and food and clothes. those suffering minds become easy prey to the silvers tongue. . Pursuing the thought a bit further, it then becomes possible for a move ment which demands not S3O every Thursday for persons over 50. but one demanding S4O or SSO every Fri day or S6O every Saturday. The amounts can be pushed up and up and the fervor of the suffering un der this illusion grows greater and greater. And always, such move ments provide the breeding ground for other racketeers who want to promote dissension and dissatisfac tion. Always, too, there will be po litical champions for the “cause” whatever it may be, because there is something. some halo. about pub lic ofﬁce that will lead men into the strangest views. President Canriot Dodge Some of 'Responsibilityj Mr. Roosevelt has said with em phasis several tinies that none of these things will work. He believes they should not be propagated and spread. because he recognizes how easily miserable humanity can be lead off at a tangent. It is a type of hysteria. an emotion. The Presi dent, however, must not dodge re sponsibility for a part of it. As I said above, his methods have been conducive to hysteria of several kinds. These panaceas that threat en again to cause grief for his ad ministration are but an outgrowth of the numerous plans that have been given birth by various persons in omcial position. True, they have been fed by the dregs of hard times. but they had their encouragement ﬁrst from illogical phases of the New Deal. ‘ Truer words were never spoken than President Roosevelt uttered at Pittsburgh. Pa.. in his 1932 cam paign when he said: “Any govern ment, like any family. can for a year spend a little more than it earns, but you and I know that a continuation of the habit means the poor house.” Adoption of any of the pension schemes, whatever their variation from the Townsend plan may he. means the poor house be cause there can not be enough taxes levied or collected to meet the need. 0 Western Newspaper Union.

Here’s a holdup story with a different twist—almost a tragic one, for, we learn from Augusta C. Gores of Glen dale, L. 1., “The gunman confessed to Judge Savarese that he was about to assault me.” Had it not been for the curi ous coincidence related below. Augusta’s adventure might have had a different ending. U _ _ Augusta. who is a nurse. was attending an invalid patient in Glendale. and on the night of April 4. 1938. at 11:20 p. 111.. she alighted from the Metropolitan avenue trolley a block and n halt from the house at which she was employed. The road at that point happens to he very lonely. inasmuch as Saint John's cemetery is but a block away. Augusta felt rather creepy for that reason as she was walking that distance from the trolley. Suddenly. ahead 3! her. she saw a lengthened shadow. travel- In: in the same direction; someone: was comm: mono BEHIND BER. She looked back to make certain. and. sure enough. a man ms hurry ing along toward her. Augusta felt the man might be following her. so she ﬁgured she would cross to the opposite side of the road in order to see whether the man would actually tollow her. He did. Augusta looked back once more as she was crossing. and as she did. the man crossed also. He. too. was looking back to see whether the road behind him was clear. "I was not mistaken." Augusta says. Fear‘eame over her. Fighting for control. she realized in mounting panic. that she must suppress her blind desire to outrun the man. No hope lay in that course. she must use her wits instead. Behind her the footsteps grew louder. At last. unable any longer to restrain herself. Augusta tinted. Not a toot away from her was the man. She attempted to turn back to the avenue. as there were several cars going through. but the tellow prevented .her trom doing so by telling nemmummmmmmmuMm. her to go on ahead of him and obey his orders as he had her covered with a gun and would use it on her it she screamed or made any attempt to call for help. Atthesametimghagustssamthemaapressedhls body up againsthersssthstshemight‘feelthathehadsgln. ‘ The man wore a leather jacket. and had his hand in the breast pocket. concealing the weapon. This was enough for Augusta. All thoughts of ﬂight vanished. She knew she must somehow talk her way out of this situation. But she knew in the next instant that she didn't have a choice. The man was under the inﬂuence of liquor. and he was past the reasoning stage. ' Augusta Invented a Husband. As the man began getting rough. Augusta told him desperately that she expected her husband along any minute. and that her husband was a police ofﬁcer. “You'll be in for an awful lot of trouble!" she warned the persistent annoye . hopefully. . - Augusta adds in parentheses: “I happen to he a widow." ' She thought by n anuiachiring this story the man might go away and let her alone. but. as the contrary. he seemed inﬂamed by this threat. He became rougher. boasting that he could handle the situation. and Aulusta. seeing now haw drunk the tellow was. began to tremble inwardly.

Augusta’s one hope lay in holding oﬂ her annoyer until some one should happen almg. The man was pc'wertul. and Augusta was powerless against his drunken strength. In vain she wrestled to tree herself from his grip. He was just about to overpower her when. turning down the road. Augusta saw the headlights of_ a car. Ber Gavior Was a Policeman. The thug had his bi-ck turned. Augustt. recalling her feeble threat '0! a few moments back. cried out: “Here he comes now! " ' The instant’s attraction was enough.

By this time the thug was making his getaway. He was making good headway. WHEN SI’DDENLY AUGUSTA HEARD A SHOT! And here’s the strange coincidence. The very man Augusta had stopped in the car proved to be ”a police omcer in plain clothes. who was coming home from a prize ﬁght. He was a total stranger to Augusta. but he must have been just as eﬂective as if he had been the imaginary husband she had tried to scare the thug with.
