Economist hops into Field of politics with analysis of 1940 elections % is Babson Washington. D. A. April 2t. A two recent trends have helped president Roosevelt politically. These Are one the fear of a War involving great Britain and France and two the possibility that the republicans May be unable to get together on a Strong candidate. A War in Europe would put f. I. R. In line for another four year term if he wishes it. Without a War and with a Strong g. O. P. Candidate he is licked. Remember business conditions make politics politics do not make business conditions. Business conditions Are fairly Good today As far As retail Trade and other statistical indicators Are concerned. Measured by the number of people out of work however conditions Are not much better than when Franklin Roosevelt took office six years ago. Millions of americans voted for Roosevelt in 1932 because they believed a change in administration would solve unemployment. Millions More voted for him in 1932 because More people had jobs than in 1932. Since then unemployment has become bad again. What the voters did last fall is a preview of what will happen in 1940 unless jobs greatly increase. Demix rain Badey split will a possible business Boom and a big gain in employment help president Roosevelt if he runs in 1940? the answer is a yes but it will not heal the split in the democratic the new dealers and the a old line democrats Are at swords Points. The Gap Between them is far wider than the average voter realizes. It looks now As though or. Garner and or. Farley will determine the democratic candidate. In addition to or. Garner and or. Farley the leading non Roosevelt possibilities Are Hull and Clark. New dealers such As Wallace Hopkins. Jackson and Mcnutt today stand no Chance of being elected. The new Deal eau now be counted out. If president Roosevelt should run As a third party candidate he would automatically elect a Republican. Furthermore any other democratic Standard bearer than or. Roosevelt would find the going pretty rough. Voters know that the democrats promised recovery during the 1932 House cleaning and that they claimed credit for it in the 1936 tidal wave. They also know that millions of people Are still out of jobs in spite of the fantastic sums of Money which have been spent to eliminate unemployment. The Law of action and reaction is today working against the demo rats a it worked against the republicans in 1932. Third them obstacles recent polls show that president Roosevelt still is personally popular with 58 per cent of the voters. Why then could he not win answer because there is a deep seated tradition against three terms. More significant than the polls of his popularity is the Fai t that other polls show that Only about half of those who approve of or. Roosevelt would support him for a third term with the Ham stringing the g. O. P. Will give him in Congress for the next 18 months with millions still out of work regardless of How much of a business upswing we May have with no Chance for Economy or a balanced budget the present Outlook is that president Roosevelt could not win a third term. The above of course is All a big european War is f. D. real Opportunity to come Back for another four years. It brought Woodrow Wilson Back in 1916 and it saved Lincoln in 1864. A a done to change horses in the Middle of the St Retro is a powerful political slogan. A european War in 194 0. With us involved could bring or. Roosevelt Hack for four years. A War which even threatened to involve us would make him a heavy favorite. Actually a european War right now would help the president far More than a roaring business Boom. Perhaps this explains much of the War propaganda in the United states today Taft Ani Dewey Lead now who looms up As the Republican Standard bearer in november 1940? the Wise boys Here Iii Washington Are focussing on four men Dewey Taft Vandenberg and Bricker. Taft and Dewey now seem to be Well in the Lead. They Are two Brilliant sound progressive men not the old guard Type which has ruled Republican politics in the past Vandenberg would be an excellent Asheboro books add 1,372 More Asheboro april 24.�?1.372 names of new voters were added to the poll Hooks during the past week of registration closing saturday night at 9 o clock bringing the total registration to 2,782 voters eligible for participation in the forthcoming municipal election May 2, it was announced saturday night by mrs. Gorrell Sugg registrar. Opening Day of the new registration april 15, saw 314 Eli Isles placed on the books and a continual Stream of voters throughout the week swelled the Mark to the 866 figure of Friday s closing. Then with 506 being tabulated yesterday the new record of 1.372 was recorded. With the registration at an All time High it Only follows that with local political interest running at fever pitch and through much Effort on part of candidate workers a record vote is a foregone conclusion. Polls will remain open election Day from 8 a. A. Until Sunset a about 6 50. The courthouse will be the Lone voting place open. Start work on sunday school building at Asheboro Church Asheboro.

J. Frank Mccrary Heads the committee in charge of i the arrangements for the meeting. Choice hut he lacks the pulling j Power of either of the younger men. You can forget Landon and Hoover. Both Are very Able men hut both unfortunately would a flops As vote getters. From what i have gathered Here this week the current session of Congress is a hopeless mess. Thera is no leadership. New Laws will a relatively unimportant and from All appearances there will be few of them. The railroads May a thrown a few crumbs. The Wagner labor act May come in for a few minor changes. A new neutrality act however should be drafted. Business need not fear that Thor will he any More Reform legislation. Reform Days Are Over until the next depression forget politics and Al rope my real message As i leave Washington is for business men now to forget the political picture. Those who Are frightened about a another four years of Roosevelt Quot Are worrying unnecessarily. If a have him. We w ill also have a War and a War might be just what the doctor ordered for american business. We would take Over world Trade world manufacturing world financing. Our huge surpluses of wheat Cotton metals would a used up. Millions of dollars in Gold Bullion shipped to this country Aud Canada in the last six months from France and England would provide the buying Power. Forget politics and forget Europe. A have seen the worst of both for the time being Little interest shown in Hille City election Thomasville april 21 a special a the Light registration for the election on May i to select a mayor and five councilmen for the next term indicates very Little interest among Thi it citizens for a change.
