If It Is wise to consult a practi

Heaven knows they have felt It as
much or more than any other pro
fession. They are prepared to make
adjustments, to discuss the question
of finances, and to be perfectly fair
with people who need their services.
Fees for medical services have al

’ message from Governor Ehrhaghaus,
probably the day after he deliver* his
’ opening message to the General As
sembly.
It is conceded that the Advisory
Budget Commission has a more tlf
ficult task before it this time than
ever before since the budgtA act h'us
been in effect. F or , in spite of re
. peated requests from the budget bu
reau that requests be held down to
a minimum this time, with every non
essential eliminated, all the Stat e de
partments an destitutions, including
the highway commission and the pub
lic schools, have already asked for a
total of at least 346,000.000 a year, it
has bee nleanned. Os this amount, an
appropriation of $17,500,000 a year was
asked by the highway commission,
leaving a total of at least s2B,fjO|o.ooo
asked by the schools. State depart
ments and Institution supported from
the general fund. Last year the re
venue collected for the general' fund
amounted to only about $22,000,000 and
this year may not run much over $21,-
000.000 J Even expenditures have been
held down to $26,000 > .000 a year, of
which more than $16*000.00 has been
tor the six months school term.
The Advisory Budget Commission
is now faced with the task of drawing
up a State budget for all except high
way purposes of not more than $24.-
000.000 a year, while some think the
budget cannot exceed $22,000,000 a
year for the reason they do not be
lieve th? State can hope to collect
more than $22,000,000 a year revenue
for the next two years. But what
ever the size of the budget, tha htidget
commission must prepare a revenue
bill that will yield enough revenue
to balance It, and that is going to be
a job.
HOOVER’S SILENCE
ON BURNING ISSUES
DUE TO OPPOSITION
(Continued on Page'Tour.)
filling out the fag end of his term
until the man who defeated him takes
over the job.
A lame duck congress is one which
includes some of its members in this
fix. After an election there always
are a few, but the number of' them
this winter is unprecedented. Ap
proximately 20 per cent of the whole
outfit, counting both houses, lost at
(he polls in November, and go into
the political discard at the current
session's end. March 4.
Chroniclers of events in Washing
ton refer without compunction to the
"lame ducks" on Capitol hill. Pro
bably beenu seof their deep respect
for the White House, they generally
refrain, howevre, from mention of the
executive mansion’s tenant as. at
present, a "lame duck’’ president,
m
tiie fees that ha did four years ago,
tn spits of the fapt that his Increased
experience would justify him in
keeping them at the same level, or
raising them.
It would be little less than calami
tous in this great period of trial and
distress If the medical profession
should fail the public as grievously
as have the financiers and ths poli
ticians. And I do not believe they
have and I do not believe they will.
In the case of the expectant
mother, I was able to point out ta
her by letter that a doctor would
rather take cars of a woman -daring
the period of expectancy because be
knows It woutfl make It easier on
her and on bfm at the time the child
was born, than to be surprised with
a sudden emergency call. I think It
is fair to say that he would make
no more charge for this than he
would for being called exactly and
only«t the time of delivery. Modern
physicians, in fact, expect to take
care of women before, during and
after childbirth, until the entire proc
ess is completed, and their whole
practice Is arranged with that Id
mind.

too.
Nevertheless, to appreciate the sit
uation fully, it is necessary to recog
nize that that is what he is.
It explains a great deal.
Notably, it explains this:
Whether or not one approves of his
views, President Hoover is an in
dividual of strong convictions as to
the fashion in which public affairs
should be run. The country, by an
overwhelming majority, has disagreed
with him. The other day it became
his duty to send his annual recom
mendations to congress. Was he to re
commend what the votere already so
emphatically have signified that they
do not want? There would not have
been much point in that. On the op
posite-hand. it scarcely would have
been fair to expect him to recommend
wh(at s he pen*>najlv decidedly con
siders bad policy.
Is it to be wondered at. tlfen. if his
message was perfunctory?—so des
cribed by many of its critics, any
way.

For example, he virtually ignored
the subject of agricultural relief,
wthich the farmers, at least, insist is
a highly important issue. He was
equally silent as to the rehabilitation
of urban industry. Unemployment was
ibarely hinted at in his summary of
conditions.
But what of it?
America has had nearly four years
of his answers to all these problems,
and certainly he U justified in con
cluding from last November’s verdict
that the electorate is dissatisfied with
his solutions. Why should he repeat
them?
To be sure, the presidential com

overlook the extremely obvious neces

connection with this urgent matter
