Abilene Reporter-News, The (Newspaper) - April 22, 1938, Abilene, Texas VOL. LVII, NO. 334. "WITHOUT, OR WITH OFFENSE TO FRIENDS OR FOES, WE SKETCH TOUR WORLD EXACTLY. AS fT Motives Behind FDR's Moves Better Relations With Business Obviously Sought WASHINGTON, April forthcoming tete-a-tete between President Roosevelt that con- firmed unbeliever In New Deal doc- trine, Henry Ford, strengthened the Impression here tonight that the administration was trying to get on better terms with business be- fore starting Its new spend-and- Icnd spurt. There was no official explanation of the fundamental purpose of this and other conciliatory gestures of recent days, though some observers guessed that (he administration had decided Its attack on depres- sion problems would have better chances of success If some of the animosity between administration men and segments of business were allayed. However, It was noted that the White House was placing strict lim- its on 1U conciliation campaign. It was not, for example, giving In on the undistributed profits tax, repeal of which has been demanded by In- numerable business men. Formal arrangements for the Ford-Roosevelt meeting were com- pleted today. The White House an- nounced and Ford, at Sudbury, Mass., confirmed that the motor maker tvould lunch Informally with the chief executive next Wednes- day. Depression problems undoubt- edly would be discussed, It was said, but Ford himself added that he had no advice to offer. He had "no axe to grind" either, he emphasized. "I want to give the president a chance to look at somebody who doesn't want he told re- porters with a grin. Roosevelt's invitation to Ford, who has consistently criticized ad-' ministration the extent In the case of NRA, of refusing to another adminis- tration gesture toward the public utilities. The R, P. c. was arranging to- day to extend loans to the power companies to help them undertake construction programs.- employing many men, both in the actual work and In the manufacture, of steel, lumber, copper the .like, With.'these developments Wash- ington linked the conciliatory'tone of recent administration utterances, notable for their lack of references to "economic royalists" or "feudal- ists." But regardless of efforts to paci- fy business, it was obvious that the administration was losing no" time In making every possible prepara- tion for starting the spending and lending campaign. Yesterday, the president approved slum clearance projects totaling SW.OOO.OOO and today Secretary Tckes advised states and municipal- ities to be ready with ideas for projects under the public works phase of the program. LaFoilette Attack Widens Breach WASHINGTON, April The attack of Oov. Philip LaFoilette of Wisconsin on President Roose- velt's economic program as "tinker- ing patching" tended to widen the breach between the White House and Wisconsin progressives who formerly were the president's allies In congress; but it left politi- cal observers puzzled as to its true meaning. It was regarded as adding signifi- cance to the baiance-of-power role played against the White House by a handful of Wisconsin progressives In the house fight over the govern- ment reorganization bill. Their sur- prise vote for recommitment fur- nished the margin needed to ad- minister ft rebuff to Roosevelt lead- ership. Whether that action and Cover- LaFollcttc's sharply worded criticism, promptly backed up by his senator brother, is merely a new progressive effort to reshape the New Deal relief and public works program, or has A deeper po- litical significance, remains to disclosed. Some observers believed It might foreshadow an Independ- ent progressive presidential ticket In 1940. ABILENE, TEXAS.
