proceeded as f ar up as Spring street,

l ipid rate when started. It is now
estimated that the entire paving job
pfopei can he completed by some

able enough to permit the work to be 1
carried on.

Father Carroll at St. Paul’s
Church Sunday Talks
On Situation
In carry on the efforts of 125 bishops
and archbishops of the Catholic
church in America among the twenty
and a quarter million members of the
laity, to put an end to the showing of
thosem otion pictures which indeed
have and continue to be a great evil
influence the Rev. Eugene P. Carroll
at St. Paul’s Catholic church Sunday
directed the attention of his parishion
ers to a serious consideration of this
Father Carrorr said in part:
"In the very early years of a child’s
life the parents are indeed pleased to
put into the hands of the child books
of fables for these will convey to the
child lessons of practical wisdom and
this but one effort in . the proper
training of their children out how
much to be deplored is the fact that
parents a few years later will allow
their children to attend a movie at
will without first informing them
selves as to the calibre of the picture
that is being shown. “Imagination is
the crown of him who achieves is in
deed a priceless jewel”; its cultivation
is indeed invaluable when kept within
bounds but a great many motion pic
tures actually tear down in the child’s
development exactly that which God
fearing fathers and mothers strive to
build up within the minds and hearts
of their children, a true sense of
values. Some picture productions in
their world of make-believe represent
the imaginary as real; work the imag
ination to the high pitch in their
make-believe world and before long
render the child and indeed some
grown-ups, as well, unfit for battles
which are bound to come into the lives
of every man and woman on their
journey through this life to eternity.
When we consider that Tt millions at
tend the movies every week and that
of this number 28 millions are under
the age of 21 and 11 millions under the
age of 14, we are forced to see what
clean and wholesome pictures might
mean and what evil and unwholesome
productions will undoubtedely be cap
able of bringing about.
“The recently published report of
the Department of the Interior, ln
corporatting the result of a survey of
the movies conducted at the expense
of the Payne Fund contains a terrible
indictment of the movies. It declares
that three out of every four pictures
deal with crime, sex, and unwhole
some romance, that practically all the
children of the United States attend
the movies once a week, and that these
decidedly change the child’s attitudes.
“Are Catholics to remain away from
the movies until the Hollywood and

Dr. Doran is far better acquainted

man Choate.
Chairman Choate was first, indeed,
to sound the alarm that, it seems to
him, moonshining and bootlegging
still must be mighty prevalent despite
repeal, but he offered no estimate of
the illegal traffic’s proportions.
Dr. Doran, who, as the legalized
liquor men’s chosen representative, is
vitally interested in the defense of
their trade from outlaw competition,
furnishes figures. At the present rate,
he points out, the annual consumption
of legally distilled and marketed drink
ables for the current fiscal year
threatens to fall short of the last pre
prohibition’s years iby approximately
This greatly perturbs the doctor (he
will be lecalled as former chief of dry
law enforcement), since he draws the
conclusion that the legal concerns he
now is working for are losing 80 per
cent of the business they considered
themselves entitled to monopolize—
losing it to operators of illicit stills
and their racketeering salesmen.

Individuals of the type of Capt. W.
H. Slayton of Baltimore, who was one
of the country’s most persistent repeal
crusaders throughout the whole of the
dry era, likewise bitterly resent the
liquor trade’s failure to yield to the
government the revenue they had ex
pected from it following repeal's rati
The possibility of error in all these
calculations lies, of course, in the
chance that liquor consumption‘real

New York, May 8. —The most seri
ous situation in the New Deal is not
defiance on the labor codes, but the
rise in the retail price of bread, milk,
and other foods as well as clothing,
while wholesale commodity prices fall.
Commodity prices were forced up by
government bounty.
Retail prices follow some months
Commodity prices can be kept up
only by constantly increasing govern
ment bounty or constantly increasing
deflation until a peak is reached. The
moment government support ceases,
commodity prices sink to a world
Retail prices, on the other hand,
usually remain up much longer—until
lack of consumptin (inability of the
buyer to buy) causes them to deflate.
Usually increased costs which go
into higher retail prices are pyramid-

ed through a process of increeased or
ganization and costs of increaesed
competition, and a profit percentage
figured on a higher base price. Thus
retail prices do not collapse so readily
as wholesale commodity prices, for {he
process is more involved. When they
do collapse, however they often bring
organizations down with them and
paralyze certain businesses.
