Ardmore Daily Ardmoreite (Newspaper) - February 7, 1939, Ardmore, Oklahoma Which we writ Prosperity of Elitie al a vile and i International peace. Kuba few sort of Pem Tona paternal interest la Thaie a the posts that serve As Street Mark i Here la Ardmore lately because used to howl so much about the of such things. A it now As he drives about town he Lotes thit a number of these markers Jave Suli ered somewhat irom the ear and tear of time j the paint is fading from the stencilled nun Ibers on Many. Some have been uprooted and Are no longer rendering any service. All could use a Little touching up paint the posts White anew and re it Encl the legends. Why not promote a Little spa project along that line it would not be expensive and it would Lead materially to the appear Ance and efficiency of the markers. A a filk Are asking the eternal question Quot what about 1939 Section will business be better a a they ask the Flea. That s entirely out of his depth. He does no to possess second sight. It is interesting to read of the intensified activity on the East coast and in other sections where air planes and armament supplies Are manufactured. Despite All the controversy Over whether it is Wise of the a a. S. To sell planes to european Powers. It is Only too Clear that such activities must spell More work Lor american craftsmen and our own armament program. If it goes through should add to the general Industrial momentum. Of course. If the East becomes More prosperous we will have a better condition in the South and Southwest. However the reflected Prosperity wont hit Here overnight. It takes a Long time for such reactions to work their Way across the continent. If All these things continue there is every reason. It would seem to Antic plate a fairly Active fall and a decidedly busier Winter than we had last year. But to be sure this is just and your guess is As Good As the next Fellows. Nobody really knows you know. Governor Phillips has repeatedly declared that he intends to Correct the patronage Racket in governmental circles. Now it is reported he is demand a ing resignation from governmental jobs of those employees who Are re i Jated to officials of the state. Such activities fall Imper the nepotism Law and if the governor digs into ithe matter he will probably find it is. Quite a mess. The governor believes the e situation can be straightened out in six months. A the Flea believes the governor is a verly optimistic. Patronage has grown in this state until it tentacles reach in All directions and engulf every activity of a Public nature. Kicking out the relatives is a Start but when the real work starts it must go a lot deeper than that if anything constructive is to be accomplished. The governor has bitten off bite if he stands by Hla Promise to Clear up this phase of Mislov Ern ment in Oklahoma and he can rest assured that those on whose shoulders the blow will fall Are not at �?�11 Likely to take their Medicine with out a Battle. Jobs and politics go hand to hand and there will be plenty of fireworks before the matter is ended. A a a a few months ago Folk were insisting that the Spanish civil War constituted the biggest distinct threat to International peace. End the War they argued and you have put out a fire that might ignite the world. Now with the Spanish civil War about Over the real menace is at hand. If the War could have been settled six months ago by some sensible Compromise perhaps peace might have been aided. Now with the fascist Nail forces Destt aed for Victory the situation Liu Tead of being lessened in its threat has become increasingly dangerous.

Says Roosevelt with Only $728,000,000 available president says 1,000,000 must be Cut from Rolls. Washington feb. 7.�?<�> a president Roosevelt told Congress today an Quot emergency Quot exists in Relief and asked Quot immediate consideration of an additional appropriation of $150,000,000 for spa for the next five months. This figure represents the Cut Congress made in his request for $875.-000,000 to carry spa from february through june. The White House announced earlier today the president had signed the $725,000,000 Biu last saturday. Sees no emergency first congressional reaction to the presidents latest Relief request came from representative Woodrum , who quoted the $725,000,000 measure through the House. He said he had Quot heard nothing indicating a new emergency Quot in Relief since Congress passed the appropriation and that he had no plans of any sort to re open the Relief appropriations prob Lem immediately. He would suggest he added House appropriations committee talk up the Relief Issue a a from Stem to. Stem a including the presidents latest proposal. A a any suggestion by the president should be carefully considered a Wood rum asserted. The virginian declared however a had seen no indication of a any change of sentiment in in asking immediate consideration on what he termed the a simple and alarming facts in the Relief Outlook. Or. Roosevelt said in a message. To that with Only $72$,000, v available spa either must reduce its Rolls abruptly on april 1 by l,006id.lni persons or begin on that the by week reduction which by Jum would drop employment from a a �?~3,do000� to a a Flag Fri Well 1,500,000 Cut More than half Quot in other words a the president said Quot the program of present pm r ploy ment would be slashed considerably More than one half within a period of three months. A if however proper reserves were maintained at the end of the fiscal year employment at the end of Juna would drop still further to a Figura of Only slightly More than 1,000,000 persons. A a therefore on a program of gradual reduction from 1,500,000 to 2,000,-000 persons would be thrown out of works Progress administration employment or with the addition of those dependent on them from 6,000,000 to 8,000,000 americans would no longer receive Federal government discussing the prohibition written into the Relief Bill against reducing spa Rolls by More than 8 percent during february and March or Roosevelt said not to Cut during two months a the need of these people is m apparent and so deserving that the Rolls in human decency ought not to be reduced dts ing february and March by even 5 percent.
