speeches of the most influential group in the administration be said together with the events that have taken place since the fourth of March 1933 present an almost con clusive case It is equally true that this revo lutionary process must end in the destruction of individual liberty for individual liberty cannot long sur vive the death of economic free dom Preserver of Principles Appearing before the Association of New York State Young Republi can Clubs Mills cast the republican party in the role of preserver of the principles upon which the union was founded and said there must be no

response by prominent party work ers of the district Recalls Tugwell Address The base of Mr Sherlocks vigor ous denunciation of the new deal was an address given by Rexford Tugwell kingbird of the brain trusters in Philadelphia three years ago at the time that Mr Sherlock was managing editor of the Ladies Home Journal He also charged a complete repudiation of the campaign promise made by President Roosevelt and of the plat form pledges made by the demo cratic party I charge intellectual dishonesty to the entire group in command at Washington now said Mr Sher lock and I dont even except our president Franklin D Roosevelt The speaker in recalling and quot ing from Mr Tugwells specifica tions for the planned society in America alluded to the four suc cessive steps in the process of change from a representative demo cracy and capitalism First a wiping away of re strictive statutes and the con centration of authority in exe cutive hands Second a code of voluntary codes in industry which later would become compulsory Third obliteration of state lines through the establish ment of supreme authority m the national government Fourth destruction and eli mination of private

in custody brought expressions of relief from officers and men throughout the city administration as well as from the business men The series of damaging fires in the section near the M and St L
