MOFFETT of Chillicothe author of the proposed constitu tional amendment which geeks to limit legislative representation from Texas larger cities argues that this amend ment is by far the most needful among the six to be voted on next keep the government in the hands of all the people and not the few who have moved to the cities But thats just what hes trying to the people have any thing much to say about the activities of the Texas Legislature For more than six years he and his political running mates from the smaller and more backward counties have blocked legislative redistricting in Texas legislative act which the Texas Con stitution plainly requires must be done every 10 years We havent had a legislative redistrict ing since 1921 the year foilc ing the 1020 census In the meantime many of the more aggressive communities in Texas have forged forward in population Among these are El Paso Lubbock San Angelo Amarilio Dallas San Antonio and Houston Many West Texas oil field towns not even on the map in 1920 have become populous centers But the smaller and more backward counties of the State had a majority in the Legislature on the basis of the 1921 redistricting bill Their representa tives didnt want to surrender that legis lative control And they have been ignor ing the plain provisions of the Texas Constitution so they could keep it They dont want the majority of rule they want minority rule in the State And ignoring the Consti tution for more than six years in refus ing a new districting bill based on the 1930 going a step far ther in their effort to preserve minority rule in they want to make it so that folks living in Texas really largest cities wont have more than onethird the voice of those living in smaller towns and rural communities The plan wont succeed though if the people really understand whats back of their scheming Horse Feathers IENATOR VANDENBERGS quarrel with the Columbia Broadcasting system and Woody Hockadays jshower ing of Father Coughlin with peace feath ers seem somehow to fit into the same picture Both wereappropriate skits in the political campaigns jittery windup And if Columbias officials surprised by the Senators trick of staging a mock interview with phonograph records of President Roosevelts past statements were made to appear awkward when they first ruled the Senator off the air and then let him go on there was no less comedy in the scene at Detroit where Coughlin and his followers collared Woody as a Communist and New Dealo crat Columbias embarrassment was Van denbergs gain for it gave his perform ance much more publicity than it other wise would have received And now the Republicans of course will attempt to capitalize the radio companys start andstop censorship of a broadcast which broke a company rule and to carry the episode to a hilarious conclu sion by charging that it is part of a New DealMoscow plot to gag free speech Incidentally it will be interesting to sec the final public reaction to this latest device in campaigning wherein phono graphic excerpts are employed to build up one end of a political debate Since the excerpts are selected by the one who possesses the human voice and since a phonographic record possesses no capac ity for rebuttal the human half seems to have a natural advantage to the point of playing a cinch in the matter of who comes out the hero The public verdict may be that the stunt was clever and again it may be that it was too clever Meanwhile Woody was last heard of in the custody of officers of the law who couldnt decide what to do with him since Ihc police regulations fail to mention whether feathertossing is a high crime a misdemeanor or just a lark i All Is Vanity let all of these crucial Issues and vital causes get you down If he political campaign just seems to go round and round and come out no where write it clown as being in har mony with the rhythm of life concern ing which the Pi Line columnist of The Albuquerque Tribune chronicles You work all day doing about the oHinc things and getting about the same money in order to write about the same rlicck to the grocer and the landlord uicl you 50 home and cat about the same supper aiid hear about the same radio jokes and get into the same bed and in litsame way in order to yof up and shave the same face In the same xvay in order to look the same at the office doing the same thing the Greater Good of us are going to vote for Roose velt or Landon because we are Demo crats or Republicans or because we do or dont like the way a WPA project down the street is being managed World trade currencies and govern mental seem far re moved from our daily lives So it is something of an awakener when a man of James P Warburgs standing speaks out and says that those seemingly remote matters make all the difference in the world to our own future wellbeing and liberties and that all of our muchdebated domestic issues are comparison It is not that Mr Warburg dwells in an intellectual stratosphere above our local squabbles Few others have been more in the heat of the battle few others have been as vigorous uncompromising or effective in criticism of the New Deal domestic program For three years the author of Hell Bent for Election called incessantly for the defeat of Roosevelt and those policies Yet now at the last hour Mr Warburg suddenly announces that he will vote for Roosevelt He has not he says changed any of his decided opinions of the fal lacies of the ftfew Deal program at home But a vastly more important issue has entered the campaign an issue brought into being by the Republican leaders narrow partisan criticism of the Admin istrations success in the direction of cur rency stabilization and world trade revival So turning his back on his Wall Street associates and waving aside what he considers comparatively minor differ ences with the Roosevelt Administration Mr Warburg writes to Secretary Hull that international economic coopera tion transcends all the many apparent issues which no matter how important in themselves can be met only if we meet the one basic issue squarely National selfsufficiency he con tinues means a permanent Govern mentdirected economy and a perma nent Governmentdirected economy means at length dictatorship moreover economic nationalism sooner or later means War this has been and is your view and those to whom the preserva tion of the American form of govern ment and the American way of life is more than a mere phrase share your views and are happy to observe your successful efforts He had expected the opposition would stand foursquare against wrong poli cies and wrong premises and would en dorse the basic principle for which you stand he says Unfortunately the Republican plat form and the Republican openly attack this principle at the very time when the present Administration is approaching it more closely To attack the principle is to attack the funda mental basis of all liberty and all liber alism It is impossible for me to support an opposition which either will not or can not recognize that economic nationalism lies at the root of our great difficulties opposition which clinging to out worn partisan tradition offers only to repeat the mistakes of the past as a cure for the mistakes of the present Monday Oct 10 Ifloli Hugh Johnson Says We Stuck Our Neck Out In Europe to Avenge Belgium as Much us for Any Other Look What We Got For It By HUGH S JOHXSOX W YORK Oct chances seem good for hearing a great deal more about poor little Belgium again We fall pretty easily for the poor little1 stuff In 1901 our sympathies were all with the poor little Japs while they walking around big Russia like a copper round a barrel The smoke had hardly drifted away when we found an nggressive enemy looming in the our greatest danger in all the world today Without the atrocities against pour hiile Belgium in 19141916 this country couldnt have been kicked into the World War It made no difference to us that frightfulness as a delib erate and systematic war measure was something invented by Sherman and Sheridan in Ihc last two years of our Civil War when the latter fixed the Shenandoah valley so that a crow couldnt fly over it without carrying its rations1 and Sherman act out to convince Georgia iiat war is hell We stuck our neck out in Europe to avenge Belgium as much as for any other look what we got for it We fed the Belgians and they fed the Germans V It is fine to sympathize with re main 3000 miles away It lies in the immemorial path of European conquest Its soil is stratified with layers of dead soldiers bones since history began to speak When its king compares its desired neutrality to that of mountainousSwitz erland it is inept as comparing a concrete high way to a stone wall Belgium is literally be tween the upper and nether millstones in any European war Whenever France has attacked Germany she has nearly always taken this trail Whenever tribes east of the Rhine reached out for France they came this way Napoleon said Antwerp is a pistol pointed at the heart of England His Waterloo came in Belgium His figure of speech about England is even more apt in the modern war of aircraft Whether viewed from the Gor man French or British angle Belgium is the greatest strategical problem on earth In the World War the surefire Schiefiin plan of a surprise attack by an unprecedented leftwheel through Belgium failed of the most spectacular accomplishment in all warfare only because the kaiser got coid feet over east Prussia It was not because of Belgian resistance behind the forts at Liege But modern fortifications of the French Maginot type adequately armed and manned are believed by contemporary experts to be impregnable This may be an explanation of the young kings sudden move collective security dissolving France weakening and goingcommunist Germany strengthening and wholly fascist England arming and all the world threatening war on unprecedented and unpredictable conservative Belgium be committed in advancs to a possible popular front indeed to any alliance If an extension of the Maginot line can protect Belgium from the east a capitalist France has not greatly to fear another Sehiefflin thrust On the contrary withan impregnable neutral capitalist Belgium on her left flank and an impregnable neutral capitalist Switzerland on the right she would be reasonably safe as a center 1st or rightwing1 nation On the other hand if France goes red Bel giums defense against France might be to open her back door and the road to the heart of France to fascist Germany The situation is still obscure but it at least plainly means this Faith in security through treaties leagues ententes and alliances is fading rapidly Internationally the cry Is Every man for himself who can THE WINNER By Rodger San Francisco News It Seems to Me Knickerbocker Greys Stand Between Nation and Chaos Children in Military Garb W 1 1 A So Thoroughly Independent It Takes No Stand On Any Issue Arc Kids Immature UNK WOMANS OIINIUN W By MRS FERGUSON HAT I cant understand said my next dooi neighbor is how a general ion that ij so sophisticated can remain so immature We were discussing the college group in which oiu youngsters ran Thats because theyve had so litlle respon sibility was the solution offered by a frienc with two girls in the university Our chil dren are so immature because they have been protected and while they mimic the mannerisms and expressions of the knowing they are ac tually babes in the wood when it comes to hav ing any actual knowledge of life What do you think In our group there were as many opinions as there were women One dare not generalize too much about juveniles these days While they have in common the virtues and shortcomings familiar to all young things their environment the circum stances of their existence have a great deal to do with their behavior and mental attitudes As for me youngsters have always appeared more admirable than their elders although theres no denying the fact that we have many groups who do show immaturity in their atti tudes toward life But how about the thousands of middleaged men and women who have never grown up cither They exist in a perpetual slate of peevishness Their emotional unbalance plunges them from one disaster into another A though their years are many they have not acquired any wisdom with their passing They suffer from what the psychologists call infantilism During the recent depression I met any num ber of boys and girls who seemed remarkably able to meet and overcome financial disaster and who after such disaster adjusted thorn selves cxpcrlly to the changed conditions of their lives In all respects they were line even noble Others as is natural were less capable They needed help were filled with fears and suffered nervous collapse Their courage was weaker Sometimes young people who have lived shel tered lives existing as it were in the uphol stery of their parents care and love are apt to remain immature for a long time There is no occasion for them to bo otherwise However I imagine it the occasion should arise most of hem would react with courage After all we lever know how capable our children are until they are put to the test Sophistication of course is not an evidence of maturity Quite t the opposite in act But if I had the money to place bets Id risk it gladly on the youth of this goneratiim AND NOW Lest We Forget Fair Enough Welcome to New Italian Envoy But Waiving Usual Compliments How About That Dough They Owe By DR B U L CONNER SOCIETY column note in Satur days HailoiledPest H A Michael HairoiledPest city editor has just completed a course in ball room Asked if that was so Mister M i c h a el inter viewed at the State liquor tax office at the bridge said Yes thats so The interviewer persisted At your age why At my age because Mister Michael said Ive known for years I got around thedance floor with difficulty I decided to find out why Why Because I never did learn the mechanics of body movement as ap plied to the ratio of the music and the ladys general geometry Danc ing is a matter of angles not curves rft rp tf What do you mean again Most dancers who dance in the fashion that I once done seemed to have no purpose on the dance floor Tliey go around in circles What did you find out about that That one goes this way or that way never just this way In other words one must have his mind made up as to where he is going to lead the lady and lead her there He must know the exact tempo of the music and keep step with it on all occasions His movement must be perfectly natural and relaxed and that he must know how to put his thumb in the ladys kidney w v v What do you mean by The slightest pressure of a crook ed thumb on the ladys kidney makes her follow you with the slightest provocation though she does not know why Can that sort of thing possibly go on and on And often on and on DARK CIRCLES In the living room the tall tanned man lazily smoked a cigar his feet stretched out before him Shehad made up to look her best but he seemed only mildly inter ested She felt a

diplomatic set will be molting calling cards a I over Washington for a couple of weeks But when the social rites are over and Mr Suvich pulls up his chair to Cordell Hulls and starts to purr I trust that Mr Hull will fetch him a stout jab on the top button of his fancy vest with a firm and demanding finger and put the question What about that dough Suvich may shoot his cuffs and pull hts mustache until it is stretched out like the ant lers on a lobster but that will not answer the question What about that dough Mr Suvich may roll his eyes and blow kisses at the chandeliersputting on the old number one routine about the beauty of American woman hood and the vigor and youthfulness of our greal new country but that will not answer the question What about that dough And certainly it is to be hoped that they will steer Mr Suvich away from the grave of the Unknown Soldier in Arlington because other foreign diplomats in times past have visited this istional shrine only for the purpose of softening is up Henceforth when the representative of some dead beat nation wants to make a solemn visit anddrop a wreath il would be more filling o lead him to the Treasury or the Archives Building

attempted to pay us in goods omorrow we would have to use he Navy to chase away their cargo boats lest the dumping if all this goods result in the closing of all our own industries complete unemployment and poverty and chaos amid plenty If they sent us gold that loo would do something to the cx hange rate and nobody would ever be able lo uy anything from us and a store without cus omers must go out of business Sure I know but if the money they owe his country can buy roads and public buildings ridges modern apartment houses create rail oad stalions and armament for them then cer ainly the same money should be able lo buy a aw knickknacks for us Up to now we have never had a chance 1o sec what it would do and Mr Suvich on his arrival in Washington the other day said any discussion of the debt would still be premature indicating that debts mature very slowly in Italy V f I think our people would be willing lo suffer a little from the dire effects of too much wealth if some payment on account would serve to re duce thearmaments of the countries which arc THINKING OUT LOUD Contributions From HeraldPost Readers Mexican Politeness THINKING OUT LOUD Letter to Thinking Out Loud is of Oct 14 by AliceHoiton ot Las Cruces N M was read by me and no doubt by many thousands of others of Mexican descent or na tionality in this Community and elsewere Her unjustified attack on letter by William Bannering of Rich mond Va which appeared in your issue of the 10th in which he so kindly expressed his impressions with regard to LatinAmericans on the recent attempt by the head of the local health department to clas sify births and deaths of same un der the colored denomination makes me wonder just what moti vates here intolerant altitude She questions first ofall the pos sibility that there be other Amer ican AngloSaxons so called who may be as broadminded and cul tured as MrBannering proves to be In many years of residence in the U S I feel proud to say that 1 have been fortunate enough in such people and of friends among meeting many cherish a host them I have known many of the others also of course but have rel egated them in my estimation to the place to which they are entitled I could see no attempt to belittle his countrymen in any way in his letter but on the contrary he showed as I have said before that there are many people of culture j amongthem as there are in any other nationality There are unfortunately Mexi cans just as uncultured as any other people who are not above display ing prejudice and discrimination Must we judge all Mexicans be cause of them Could it not be barely possible that there may exisl a few who are a little bit more cul tured and do not feel this way There seems to be one at least as evidenced by his letter appearing next to yours in the same edition of The Post I refer to the one signed S 1 Esquivel He happens to be personally known to me and I would like to know a more gen tlemanly and truly cultured per son That there has been prejudice and discrimination between the less educated factions of both Amer icans and Mexicans cannot be de nied My only hope is that educa tion among both will eventually destroy such a condition I had never heard that one could be too polite in dealing with ones social equal I would certainly ad mire a person who even if despis ing another can find it possible to be superpolite to him May the future permit the lady in question more contact with that portion of with whom the Mexican people she evidently is not very well acquainted and it may be that she will change her very strong feeling against them all JOAQUIK L VELARDE 1101 Upson Apt 2 Mrs Eminger THINKING OUT LOUD When I am dead my dearest sing no sad songs for me lant them no roses at my feet nor

as when telling me of holding in her arms her first grandchild She was a native Iowa daughter of District Judge Crandjcll at near Council Bluffs I have seen her por trait and eulogistic biographical sketch in the leading newspaper of that city Iowa was proud indeed of this capable daughter Mrs Eminger was an outstanding figure in the womens clubs of New Mexico She gave her artistic serv ices as

as wo know it stil continues for the Knickerbocker Greys have begun once more to drill and this is the fiftysixth year of what is possibly Manhattans most patriotic institu tion The paper says This junior mili tary organization included in the roster the scious of many of the beat known families in New York One hundred and ten veterans appeared and thirtyeight recruits The vet erans vary between 9 and 16 while j the recruiU run from 7 to 10 They j will drill twice a week all through j the year and then medals will be awarded for attendance military proficiency and marksmanship What No plaque for the 10year old tot who shows the greatest prow ess with the bayonet And will there be no opporlunity to drop toy bombs as close as possible to toy hospitals I must have heard of the Knicker bocker Greys before but wheli I suddenly came upon the story with a photograph of a spindly litlle boy saluting a beefy man in a Sam Browne belt it almost hit me like a war atrocity I though I ought to be able to got mad about this and do a good column but it hasnt worked out that way Im puzzled I read the names of the ladies who form the board cdirectors of the Knick erbocker Greys They are all good same names you would see in any Save America these are the very ladies who hold benefits for the Red Cross and put stained glass windows in the big church of Bishop Manning And I havent a doubt that every last one of them would like to see a happy and a prosperous world with ease and contentment both upstairs and down And so I wonder what comes inlo their minds on a drill day Fraulein will you please go up to the nursery and tell Master Freddie that its time forhim to go to the armory and drill And tell him not to forget his gas mask And oh Fraulein be sure that his hands are clean And so brushed and scrubbed and his fingernails cut Freddie is off for the armory to learn about military tactics and master rifle fire Cadet Colonel Lowell Thomas Jr who is all of 14 will probably not take the recruits much beyond elementary military routines for the first few days The whole crowd is keen and eager as mustard but they must wait a while before they smell gun pow der It may Le many months before one hears marked sounds of grfef from Freddies room and the manly lad s mother is forced to make excuses to her teatime visitors Im so sorry she explains but Freddie is such a patriot that he takes everything very hard Oh yes he belongs to the Knickerbocker Greys Some of them are younger than Freddie but they treat them all as if they were grown up soldieis I always say theres nothing like military drill to make a boy manly Well it seems they were having riot drill today and Freddies bayonet got stuck in the stomach of his rioter Yes they have dummies packed with sawdust I think they pack them too tight Thats why Freddie ouldnt get the bayonet out And you see it held up his entire squad They were attacking the riot ers from four sides and driving them into a narrow alley where the gas detachment could work on them Its all a game of course But they judges and score cards and some of the boys do get so excited My hus band says its just like a real riot and he says that when we rain enough of our wellbred boys well show people there isnt any class consciousness in America But I had to send Freddie to bed without any supper I just couldnt get him to stop crying It seems his pride is hurt He had to call on the corpora to help him gel the rioter off his bayonet I suppose theres no good scolding him He probably inherited il from me Freddie is just sensitive for his own good
