Did not the Hangman s axe the arts �?~27 23. President talks Good politics at least the presidents speech before before i he Jackson Day diners last night had been heralded As non partizan. Actually beyond calling attention to the presence in his government of Many others than democrats and by implication suggesting that the new Deal is broader than the party line. We see no reason for describing it As non partizan. Or. Roosevelt defended his program sturdily and declared that the gains in a a Security for the individual should not be a chipped he called for a democratic stand squarely Back of the new Deal As the election approaches. May we not agree with the president that the Best Chance for another democratic Victory lies a Fidelity to the new Deal indeed we Micco that a vigorous of the major enterprises and achievements of the administration Weald be the Best party strategy. The submergence of doubts among the right wingers seems to us to be essential to Victory. The democratic party is in Power because the masses of the people were aroused to believe that it promised to exercise Federal Power courageously for the alleviation of distress incidental to the Mal distribution of the benefits of labor. Certainly it has been faithful to the pledge to exercise that Power. Opinions differ As to what has been accomplished or. Dewey running for the presidency charges that the seven years of democratic control has failed to solve or alleviate the two great National problems a unemployment and an unbalanced budget. Or. Roosevelt contends that a the nation has made great gains in our economic Prosperity and in the Security of individual he contends too that the basis has been established for further gains which must be essayed. We assent to the political Wisdom of his position. The a it eople Are not convinced that government adventure in the new Deal has failed of its objective. Many of them believe that there should be further adventure and Are unwilling to fall Back into the conditions of the old order. It is to that sentiment the democrats must Appeal if they Are to win again. The republicans stand ready to take Over and return to the old stand. The Vali e of the in a this paper publishes at various times articles dealing with juvenile crime and delinquency. Too often these items appear to take precedence Over news w hich might carry an optimistic note. The National youth administration is doing some Fine work in its Job of helping and some times rehabilitating youth. Tho Tya makes no pretence of giving a permanent Job to every boy and girl who might apply. But it is intensely interested in helping worthy Young people in getting sound experience and then guiding them into non Federal jobs. The local office under the direction of C. Kimrey has helped 30 Young people make satisfactory connections. The nya has afforded experience in typing filing dictation and general clerical work which experience the boys and girls might not have been fortunate enough to obtain otherwise. Thus the nya is emphasizing the need and importance of being self supporting and in that Way helping to build a sound dependable generation. The Lynch Bill embroiled again in discussion of the a anti Lynching Bill the House of representatives goes at the Issue Hammer and tongs today. Under the inspiration of congressmen from Northern districts where the negro vote is Strong the southerners Are embattled. They have some help in other regions but they do not have a solid front among themselves. The vote which called up the Bill for debate indicates that a decisive majority can be counted on to favor the Bill. In our judgment those who Are striving to put this measure on the Law books Are blundering fundamentally. We would utter no word in defense of mob crimes or mob criminals. The outbreak of the Lynching spirit is not to be condoned but when Congress begins to level this kind of Law at portions of the country under pressure it is yielding to the temptation to invade the responsibility of the individual state for the preservation of order and the exercise of police Power. Furthermore we contend it is yielding unnecessarily to that temptation. A subsidence of Lynching has been apparent with the passing of the years. Til is is due to development of local control of various kinds and not to Federal help in the matter. In the past the offence has been frequent enough to justify extreme measures of prevention. Now while we do not regard fhe Bill As a matter of first importance we do regard it As both unnecessary and undesirable. It probably would never save a life. In the news most any Day now one can hear a Friend speak of a proposed trip to Florida wishes for such a trip or that old Winter May temper his winds a to tace shorn but one May also hear of Winter sports and read prose poems on the blessings of Winter. The Christian science Monitor tells of a blessings underfoot in the following paragraph a kindly Winter drapes the shivering limbs of naked Trees blankets the struggling wheat and exposed Glass roots tucks White puffs about shrubs and perennials. Heavy snowfalls Promise renewed water Supply where autumn drought reduced and dried up reservoirs. Their elders usually frown at Snow which youngsters Greet with shouts of Joy. Without Snow Summers streams and Springs would run dry roots would freeze. Hasni to someone written that blessings love disguise a senator Taft has presented a five Point formula for the next president. Point no. I a a the president must wish and be determined to balance the the american Public will probably be interested in the other Points when some chief executive has actually balanced the budget. Kansas City within ten years has reduced the average traffic fatalities from too lives a year to Only 32 1939. Persistent safety publicity has had Good effect the courts have been Stern with offenders. The Montgomery Ala advertiser prints this Christmas Echo a just because Montgomer ians mail Christmas cards eat of a Knog and sing a holy night a Richmand had to go and do the same thing. Why does no to Richmond do something original every now and then Why not for instance equip its ancient trolley cars with rubber wheels a the Lynchburg Ness contends that eggnog is a drink declaring a if anybody says its a food to be eaten with a spoon we Are not even going to argue with sure eggnog a a drink when its thin enough to be drunk. But who a to blame those prosperous Montgo Merians for making their eggnog so thick they have to eat it with Dale Carnegie author of a How to win friends and influence people in August of 1939. I visited Harbin a manchurian town not far from the Borders of Russia. I saw there a Monument erected to two japanese spies who were shot in Harbin a third of a Century ago during the Russo japanese War. These spies disguised As mongolian nomads drifted up to Harbin and tried to blow up the trains on the siberian railway Bridge across the Ungari River. They were caught and condemned to be shot. They met death in a Beautiful kindly courageous Way. Just before they faced the firing squad they said to their captors Quot Here is some Money we want to give to the widows and orphans of the russian soldiers who have been killed in this War. They Are not to blame for what has happened. We do this with the Hope that someone Back in Japan will take can of our what did these spics achieve by that final gesture of unselfishness these things first by thinking of the troubles of others they got their minds off the fact that they were to be shot in a few minutes and by doing that they conquered fear. Second by their unselfish acts they got a feeling of exaltation that enabled them to face the firing squad with heroism. Third they did something so Beautiful that the Story will be told to generations yet unborn. If you want to conquer fear done to think about yourself. Try to help others and your fears will vanish. Recently i visited with the executive of one of our leading new York newspapers. As might be expected our conversation swung around to the interesting things that Are happening in the journalistic world. I asked about a Mutual acquaintance who once held a Superior position to that of my Host on the same paper. I was told that this old Friend now holds a subordinate position on a rival paper. that was astounding in the old Days we both had thought him headed for great things. Further inquiry revealed that he had risen for a time and had become managing editor of another paper. But something happened and. A few Days later he had come to my Host and asked for his old Job Back. Quot i was All for taking him my Host said a a by there were others to be considered a the men with whom he would have to work. So i Felt them out. To a Man they put their foot Down. Too hard to get along with they said. And so i had to pass him what tragedy lies in those words. How much Heartbreak such a characteristic can bring about. Here was a Man who had made a Brilliant Start but he moved Down instead of up.

Just incidentally the situation has the intimates of senator Robert Taft the avowed Ohio Candi Date pretty Mueh worried. A sergeant gets hunk w Ith of fun ers eleven u. S. Army officers and their families in Quot officers Row at Billing Field spent a cold and wretched night during the recent wintry spell Here.

Right now Hatch is preparing to push his companion piece a a Bdl which would prohibit political activity by state employees in All agencies to which the Federal government contributes Money either by Loans or Grants. This is a cruel blow of political machines. Since every state Highway department gets Money from Uncle Sam and the state Highway department ii usually Hie Backbone of the dominant state political machine. For that very reason the Bill has a Good Chance of passage senator Hatch chuckles As he reflects that senators and congressmen whose own political preserves were reduced by the first Hatch Bill Are glad enough to see to it that the same grief is handed along to the boys Back Home.
