Digest g National Topics Interpreted BY WILLIAM BRUQIfART/ Washington.—lt is a little early in the new year to become despondent. ' I suppose, after “Bill’s” Not the manner of a certain radio star. Happy I ought to be hap py about the whole thing. But I am not. The outlook is too gloomy. Developments of the last few weeks have combined to make me a pes simist of the ﬁrst water. I hope I am wrong; yet, present conditions force the conclusion that this coun try faces a condition as serious as that through which it passed in 1932 and 1933. There is no reason evi dent to me why we should not face the facts. discouraging as they ap pear. So. let us consider some of the things that have happened lately, and some that are happening these days. Only in that way, I believe, can we get a correct understanding of this new depression which a thou sand government propagandists in sist upon calling a "recession." Four months ago, industry began to lay of! men and women workers. There was no market for the goods they were manufacturing. The re duction in payrolls was necessary to avoid bankruptcy. Nobody can afford to pay workers if there is no work to do. Dismissal of work ers continued in an ever-growing volume until on January 1, the great General Motors corporation laid oﬂ something like 60,000 men at one time and placed its remaining 200.- 000 workers on a fouroday week. That action, while it appears sensa tional. was illustrative of what had been going on during the four months that I mentioned; it brought public attention and political atten tion to a focus. but it was sensa tional only because of the numbers. It made 'an impression that dis missal of a few or several hundred here and there had tailed'to make. During this same period, prices were undergoing a natural and nor mal reaction. Some were up; some were down. Altogether, they were and are in a topsy-turvy condition. Government business analysts smelled the mouse. They were watching all of the trends that were evident during those four months. Those oﬂicials in high places and charged with responsibility for na tional welfare were informed of what was in prospect. But govern ment propaganda continued to show bright and smiling faces in the pic ture. It won’t last, they were say ing in the written and spoken words. It is a psychological condition, Pres ident Roosevelt said—and thereby made the same mistake that Presi dent Hoover made when he an nounced that prosperity was just around the corner in 1931. It is the same old corner and it is the same old prosperity. but apparently the Roosevelt administration is going to have just as much trouble ﬁnding either the corner or the prosperity as Mr. Hoover did. ' ‘ To get back to the sequence of 1 events: the time came when the re sponsible officials More Trust had to say some- Busting thing by way of _ admitting the ex istence of the depression "reces sion." Mr. Roosevelt. it will be re called, went oﬂ on a ﬁshing trip around December 1. He took with him the brilliant and able young Robert Jackson. .of the Department of Justice. Now. Mr. Jackson’s par ticular ability lies in the direction of breaking up trusts, monopolies. big business combinations. Those of us whose job it is to watch Washing ton. thought we foresaw the neXt move by the administration. We have it now in full flower—a great drive against all of those sinful big business interests who simply must be the folks responsible for the depression. 0! course. it should be remembered at the same time that there must be a “goat” when poli tics gets bailed up, and big busi ness again is the “goat" of the ad ministration. In consequence of the crash in business. the collapse of the theories of the long-haired crew that seeks to remould America under the guise ot'New Deal plans. and the general running out of Democrats on the New Deal leadership. the country is now to be treated to another trust busting drive comparable to that conducted by the late Theodore Roosevelt when he was President. Yes. big business can always be at tacked. cajoled. threatened. It is a proper stunt, nearly always re sorted to by politicians and others who find themselves locked within the meshes of their own ﬁshnets. Big business is the red herring that the administration is trying to drag across the trail. It is because the administration is attempting to con ceal its mistakes. and make people forget them instead of doing a con structive job that I ﬁnd myself de spondent in the early weeks of 1938. The real tip-oﬁ to the drive on big business was in the form of a speech by Mr. Jackson who said by way of the radio that: immiywaytoinsurearea sonably steady well-being for the na * 1 THE KENNEWICK (WASHJ COURIER-REPORTER tion as a whole is for the govern ment to act as an impartial over seer of our industrial progress. ready to call a halt at all times on monopolistic practices which threat en to throw our economy out of or der.” That theory is basic with most of the New Dealers. America must be made responsive to the Washington governmexﬁ. It is that theory to which more and more business men. little as well as big, are objecting. They are fearful of it for the reason that they can not see how this ad ministration or any that may follow will be “impartial" in overseeing industry. It is quite natural for a political group to be intent upon pre serving itself in power, and that end never has been accomplished by im partiality. 0 O 0 But the New Dealers wish to avoid blame for the conditions now con fronting the na- Would tion. Conveniently ' enough, there is Shun Blame no mention being made now of the tremendous pres sure that was exerted through four of the last ﬁve years to bring about higher prices. Those prices now are held to be the result of mo nopoly. not the fault of the profes sors who were saying a few years ago when prices were moving high er that "we planned it that way." So political guns are turned.on big business-but my guess is that lit tle business willbe hurt more than big business by the refusal of the Wallaces, the Ickes. the Oliphants. the Jerome Franks. the Corcorans and the Cohens to recognize that Hitler's style of business manage ment must fail here as in Germany. . The frankest statement about the whole thing has come from Mr. Roosevelt himself. He declared re cently that “over-extension of in ventories" was responsible for the current depression. .That is to say, producers and manufacturers. feel ing that business was booming. pro duced or manufactured too much. They did not recognize that the bet ter business we appeared to have in 1935 and 1936 was highly superﬁ cial. Nor were they aware what the Washington government would do in the way of controlling or bur dening business of all kinds with new taxation and new restrictive legislation. It was from those latter two things that a fear was bred and the factories and farms that were being worked full tilt because prices were 4 going higher were left with an over stock. I think it'can be fairly said also that few persons expected to see such encouragement from the administraticin for labor to ﬂout the 1 law and take over control of prop-‘ erty as has happened. Whatever‘ else may be said, however. the fact ‘ remains the theories constantly be- ‘ ing advanced by one or another of‘ Mr. Roosevelt’s advisers have frightened millions of persons who still have a few dollars which they would like to put to work. On the whole. I am convinced those dollars will not be put to work unless and until there is assurance from Wash ‘ ington that sanity and not monkey } doodle schemes will be exercised in i country's business. It is dishonest ‘ governmental dealings with the ‘ on the part of government, regard less of political party. to charge ‘_that business brings about depres sions; any person with a grain of ‘ sense must know that no individual desires to throw away his own mon ey or throw away a chance to make more. President Roosevelt has taken a ﬁrm stand for a larger navy. His ac tion deserves com- For Larger mendation. Condi tions throughout Navy the world are such that he would be foolish to dis regard the necessity for a strong defense. It will cost money. of course. but preparedness has proved cheaper always than being thrown into war because no other nation is afraid of us. I have an idea that Mr. Rooseo velt will be attacked trom~a dozen different directions. So-called peace organizations will try to pin his ears back and make him say “uncle," but I have gained the impression that Mr. Roosevelt will adhere to his program. Certainly, nearly all students of international aﬂairs agree that he is 100 per cent right. In a letter to house leaders. Mr. Roosevelt suggested the necessity for construction of two battleships, two light cruisers. eight destroyers and six submarines during the ﬁscal year beginning next July 1. These craft are in addition to other naval construction already considered for the next ﬁscal year. It will take two or three years to build some of these boats. Flaming and pre liminary work ought to be started on them as soon as ’possible. Mr. Roosevelt believes the work ought to start right away—and after all I think most folks will agree that the President is in a 'better position than anyone else in the country to know what the dangers are. 0 Western Newman: Union. . HOW to SEW "223*?" WHETHER you line your new draperies or not will depend on how heavy the material is. It is important, however. that the top of draperies be stiffened when a French heading is used. A soft canvas which may be purchased in drapery departments is gen erally used for this purpose. From four to six inches is a good depth to cut the heading canvas. Turn the top of the curtain material over it and sew as at A. Start to sew the plait about an inch down from the top of the grapery and sew it the depth of e stiffening, as shown here at B. Pinch this plait into three small plaits and, starting two inches down from the top. sew through as at C. Sew these plaits the depth of the stiffening, so that they appear as shown here at D. Now? turn to the wrong side and sew a ring to the back of each plait as at E. . Every Homemaker should have a copy of Mrs. Spears’ new book, SEWING.
