The charitable intent was so apparent that Alf London was Defeated in 1936 when he had the temerity to up wove the Roosevelt initiative. Charity like virtue is not something to denounce. However crude the statute politicians resist corrective legislation preferring to take Refuge behind the wave of popular emotion to keep themselves in office. This is what president Johnson is now doing. His tactics Are expedience his objective the Quot Black Quot vote that Bard Core that has already Sav re his democratic majority in Columbia Philadelphia Gary anti other Industrial cities and which even last week saved the Lay for the democrats in Aiken local elections.

It reestablishes local political control Over those funds and thereby Cut from under the republicans the support they had hoped to gain from Southern members. The White House also sent agents soliciting the support of Liberal republicans in the North. In new York senator javits governor Rockefeller and mayor Lindsay were appealed to come to the Aid of the Leo and to use their influence to prevent the Republican opposition from cutting the appropriations too drastically. Sentiment for some poverty programs has been very Strong despite All the proof of Wurte extravagance and mis for Nago ment. Clarity is something that no v la intentioned Man can oppose. People of Goodwill have always found Means whereby they can afford uror to tile less Fortis to. But there has not always been a Well designed Means a donated to assure that All that is appropriated goes for Charity. Tie republicans Are mindful of Tho need for economical Man-a1 Ament a fair and just manage it. Some of the programs it Haa been proved were costing Tho government More to manage than they gave in assistance to Tho poor. More Money went to political workhorses than went for the needs.
