Indianapolis Times (Newspaper) - April 18, 1930, Indianapolis, Indiana In Ripp 3 m o # and some protest needed some organized body Farmers or Busi Ness men or Plain citizens should Send a Vire to the senators from this state protesting against the Telegram of governor Leslie who urges Congress to place a High Tariff once ment. The largest customer for Cement in this state is the state itself. It spends vast sums each year for this product for the building of roads. It i most unusual for a customer to ask for a Tariff that will make the Price of his Purchase higher. The Cement makers Are highly organized. It is Seldom that there is any difference in prices. The association works smoothly and Well. It has very skillful salesmen who can be found almost constantly in the company of Public officials. Many other states Are taking measures to reduce the Cost of their roads by establishing state owned plants for the manufacture of Cement. The excuse for the governors plea for a High Tariff on this Bulky product is that there Are plants in Indiana. Just How foreign Cement could compete with Indiana when the freight across the Atlantic reloading into cars and transportation by train hundreds of Miles from the Seaboard Are added is some thing of a mystery. Instead of a Tariff on Cement the people of this state should be interested in the is t Iblis Sliment of a state Plant for the manufacture of its own Cement. The experience in other states suggests that the Cost of roads can be greatly reduced by this Means. The state already has the raw mate Iris on its state farm. It has Idle convicts who could be put to work. It has All the necessities for manufacture except a Plant which could be erected at a Price which would probably save its Cost the first year. Pleading for a High Tariff on this product on the plea that it would protect Indiana labor and capital from cheap foreign Competition should not pass unchallenged especially when that plea comes from an official source. A legislature pledged to an inquiry of the whole Highway situation might do a real service to the people who Are paying this year Twenty two millions of dollars for roads. Tax problems the suggestion that business men keep a constant Eye on lax problems and furnish advice to officials is Fine even though it carries the implication that officials have failed badly in protecting the people. An even finer solution would be an Active interest in the primaries in the selection of candidates who by purpose and ability would need no such guardian ship. There is one sure Way of keeping Down taxes. That is the spending of less Money. That could be done if Public business were conducted on the same Basi As successful private business. The first step should be the elimination of waste through favouritism. Excessive pay Rolls for political purposes the handling of contracts to favored politicians. Lax inspection Cost Money. A Kickback from the West senator Moses of new Hampshire and senator Grundy of Pennsylvania have tried to put the in surgent Western senators in their place. Moses refer ence to the sons of wild jackasses a has become a classic. Grundy has been equally sardonic. He has branded the Homeland of the insurgents backward states. And has suggested that the progressive Sena tors from these Bush league areas Well might be seen and not heard. One of the most illustrious and Active of the Prog Eny of the wild asses senator Gerald p. Nye lets Loose with his Hind legs to the North american review in an article entitled speaking of backward he turns his guns on the Keystone state. The constituency of Grundy. He first appeals to the test of history and Calls the Roll of the citizens of Pennsylvania who have been prominent in National politics. He finds but one statesman. Philander c. Knox and a dozen politicians Many of unsavoury repute such As the camerons. He offers the Roll Call of the Young and backward Lowa in comparison and finds that it has contributed More men of Worth to the nations service. Next senator Nye turns to education and investigates the percentage of children Between 5 and 17 attending elementary and secondary schools of All kinds. Here Pennsylvania lags far behind the Back Ward states Pennsylvania. 71.5 North Dakota 84.6 South Dakota. 82.9 Lowa. 86.1 Nebraska. 90.5 Idaho 94.8 Kansas. 87.9 Montana. 92.2 Colorado 95. Pennsylvania boasts of its great wealth in com Parison to the holdings of the impoverished backward areas. Yet the per capita wealth in Pennsylvania is less than that of any of the backward states Penn Sylvania. $3,187 North Dakota $3,692 South Dakota. $4,482 Nebraska. $4,004. Idaho $3,301 Kansas. $3,493 Lowa s4 274 Montana $3,369. I inasmuch As the total wealth of Pennsylvania greatly overtop that of the backward states senator Nye argues that we have in Pennsylvania economic and financial feudalism in which the wealth is concentrated m the hands of the financial Barons. Turning to the conditions of labor. Senator Nye launches the following indictment of the land of the Mellons where starvation wages inhuman conditions of labor the state authorities indifference police brutal Ity an uneconomic system of production and a medieval neglect of the fundamental rights of Man com Bine to make life unbelievably miserable for the men women and children involved.

Give Light and the people will find their own Way police these corporate thugs entrusted with a great states authority and paid by private corporations have committed Many foul deeds too horrible to men tion. Indeed some of the atrocities of War time seem merciful by comparison. Nor is the political situation any better i make no new charge when i say that the great financial Industrial Railroad and commercial interests own the political organizations in Pittsburgh and Philadelphia and these machines dominate the lives of people control or corrupt elections and in Short make a mockery of the representative system of government. Thus it is Clear to me that the average Pennsyl Vanian. Despite his constitutional right to the act. Has As much voice in the naming of his officials and framing of policies As did a Vassal of the dark Ages. Admittedly senator Nyers statement is a partisan indictment. But there is enough truth in it which is beyond the Range of possible contradiction to serve As a cogent reminder to Uncle Joe Grundy that there is no place like Home. He should have remembered his own Glass roof before he tossed his cobblestones into the Camp of the servants of the backward states. The meteoric younger generation will the reign of the younger generation pass like a meteor coursing its Way through the heavens As a Flash in the night has it come into its own merely to melt away like a Snow Heap before the april Sun such is the suggestion embodied in one of the most thought provoking articles published in any periodical in recent years. It is entitled a nation of elders in the making and appears in the april num Ber of the american Mercury. The authors Are Dis. W. S. Thompson and p. K. Whelpton of the Scripps foundation for research in population problems. It is the Contention of the authors that we slowly but surely Are developing into a nation of relatively old people. The birth rate is declining rather rapidly while the death rate remains practically stationary. Now there Are Twenty five Young persons under 20 to every ten persons Over 50. Before the end of the Century there will be twelve or fewer under 20 to every ten Over 50. We Are in for a steady increase of persons Over 40 in the population. These interesting and crucial facts suggest the possibility of Many significant readjustments if not revolutions in american life. What about old age in Industry this already is a tremendous problem. In some industries the old age line now begins with 30 or 35. What will happen when the majority of the population Are Over 35? we shall have to shift the deadline upward or else the Burden of dependency will crush the Young who Are working. In the future under any conditions Charity and social work will become More and More a problem of the aged and less and less a matter of child care. As the nation of elders emerges there will of necessity be grave changes in the demands of the population. These will have their far reaching re actions on the modes of Industrial production. As professor Thompson puts it if we Are to have fewer births and More old people we shall need fewer baby carriages and More wheeled chairs fewer juvenile books and More essays and books of sermons As we grow older we shall want fewer dinner jackets and More smoking jackets fewer baseball diamonds and More Golf links and so on. Even More serious Are the issues which these changes imply with respect to the Fate of liberalism in America. A preponderance of old persons inevitably will mean a growing conservatism in Industry in property ideals in politics. Professor Thompson gives us a gleam of Hope Here. He suggests that the conservatism of the elders May become so reactionary and oppressive that it will provoke the formation of a vigorously Radical political party thus giving party lines in the United states once More some vitality and logic. We May Hope that the Bourbo ism will not provoke revolution. In any event we have Here considerations of More moment for americans and their children than the bread line the disarmament conference Public utilities or the big league season. The younger generation will do Well to sit up and take notice. They scarcely can take their death warrant lying Down. Re Frederick Landis the English Are inconsistent. They make fun of Uson account of prohibition and talk about tyranny because we will not let people make liquor yet they Are putting into prison the followers of Mahatma Ghandi the nationalist Leader of India because they made Salt in violation of the Salt monopoly of the British Indian government. A a a if the United states owned an Island As close to India As the British Island of Nassau is close to Florida and if that american Island were used As a base of operations to smuggle Salt into India As Nassau is used to smuggle liquor into the United states we would soon receive an ultimatum from John Bull. A a a or. Bull has not handled this Indian situation with his customary diplomacy. Instead of put Ting All these followers of the Mahatma into jail for making she Salt or b. Should have induced the Mahatma s family physician to inform him that Salt is hard on his arteries. A a a or. Frederick Tilney of Columbia University suggests that government should be made a profession like Medicine engineering and Law. Under this plan a Man would have to get a diploma from College before he could run for office As a doctor must have a diploma before he can run for patients All of which violates the principle of a Republican form of government. A a a under or. Till eyes plan All graduates of the col lege of government would Start by holding the smaller offices and make their Way upward toward the greatest stations in Public life. We have this very system now the great majority of our Large statesmen having come up the ladder of office holding from Small places. A a a the result of this is that while statesmen acquire the experience they also acquire the habit of keeping their ears to the ground and the great objective is to be re elected not to do the Brave thing conscience and common sense dictate. A a a instead of needing men thoroughly versed in the technique of government we need Strong men who will take office saying to themselves i will hold this office for the one term and do what i think is right regardless of the consequences. That Frame of mind would produce More statesmen than All the government colleges that could be built. The Indianapolis times daily health service by or. Morris Fishbein editor journal of the american medical association and of Hygeia the health Magazine. As time goes on it is being realized that where diphtheria prevention by the use of toxin anti toxin is carried out on a Large scale diphtheria can be controlled. In new York millions of inoculations have been made and the slogan to Day is no More diphtheria after 1931. The great Campaign carried out jointly by the health department of the City of new York and the physicians has resulted in inoculations on a scale never previously secured. At least 62,000 inoculations were made by physicians during 1929, and hundreds of thousands were made by the health department for patients who could not afford the services of a private practitioner. The Berlin ministry of health has encouraged inoculation against diphtheria and it has been Esti mated that 88,000 of the 600,000 children in Berlin up to the age of 15 years had received one injection and 65,000 two injections of the toxin Antitoxin. Of 31,000 children tested before inoculation 78 per cent were found susceptible to diphtheria by the Schick test whereas 71 per cent of 11,000 children tested after inoculations with toxin Antitoxin mix Ture had become negative to the Schick test and were therefore not Likely to have diphtheria. Out of 150 reported cases of diphtheria examined in new York Dur ing 1927, it was found that Only. Waltz me around again Willie a in ii nu11,. I. Diphtheria can be controlled three had had the inoculations and of these three one did not have diphtheria one had received Only two injections and in the other Case less than three months had elapsed since the injection. Immunization against diphtheria is one of the safest methods known to modern science. The reactions when they occur Are not generally severe. The Only serious accidents that have occurred have been such As May occur in any phase of modern life. Under modern civilized conditions no one is absolutely Safe All the time. Today the control Over methods of manufacture of the materials used is such that the accidents which formerly occurred Are not Likely to occur again. Science by David Dietz plane and movie camera will help scientists to observe eclipse of Sun april 28. An air plane and a motion Pic Ture camera two of the twentieth Century engineering marvels Are to be employed by astronomers in California in observing the eclipse of the Sun of april 28. The april 28 eclipse will be visible As a partial eclipse throughout the United states. It will be visible As a total eclipse however Only in a narrow track less than a mile wide running from the Pacific coast just North of California to twin Bridges a town thirty five Miles South of Butte Mont. Co operation of the United states army air service in observing the eclipse has been requested and obtained by president w. W. Camp Bell of the University of California. Or. Campbell for Many years director of lick Observatory is one of the worlds greatest authorities upon the subject of eclipses. It is Only rarely that or. Camp Bell has been Able to see an eclipse from his own Back Yard As it were. Usually he has had to travel thou Sands of Miles. The outbreak of the world War in 1914 stranded or. Campbell in Northern Siberia where he had gone to make eclipse observations. Islands of the South sea and other far away places have been visited by or. Campbell. To to to seconds present plans Call for use of Anai plane at a height of ont less than 10,000 feet Over Napa Valley Between Napa and St. Helena. A second air plane May be used to carry the motion picture camera while the first devotes itself entirely to scientific observations. In a statement of plans or. Campbell says purpose of the air plane plan is to carry the observer Well above the highest Clouds which might be in the Way of eclipse observers located on the earths surface. The total phase of the solar eclipse Wil not last More than one or tvo seconds. The Shadow of the Moon on the Earth surface will be not More than one half or five eighths mile in Width and for the observer to locate his observing station where the Shadow of the Moon in its rapid northeastern travel will pass directly Over him and give him the second or two of totality will be difficult and it is quite Likely that the slight uncertainties in our knowledge of the precise position of the Moon will leave Many intending observers a Little too far North or a Little too far South to have the Shadow pass Over them. The sky will not be very dark at that instant of totality because the Moon will succeed in just a Little More than covering the suns image. I should guess that the observers who Are fortunate enough to find themselves for a second or two in the Shadow of the Moon could read Fine newspaper print about As easily in the open air As they would a minute or two before Sunset on a Clear Day. This estimate however is very Uncertain but there will be no difficulty whatever in Reading Ordinary newspaper print at the time and place of totality. A to Clouds the lick Observatory is plan Ning to station a number of observers with telescopes and other suitable apparatus at an observing station near Camptonville in Yuba county California. The station will be under charge of or. J. H. Moore and or. D. H. Menzel two of the astronomers. Because of the uncertainty of calculating the exact path of the Moon s Shadow the instruments will be stationed at various Points in the Hopes that if one is too far North or South the others will be within the eclipse track. In addition the astronomers must Cope with the heart breaking possibility of Cloudy weather. This al ways is a possibility which an eclipse expedition must face. Expeditions have travelled thou Sands of Miles spent Days setting up and testing their apparatus Only to find Clouds in front of the Sun at the moment of the eclipse. Eclipses Are so important to astronomers because certain data is to be obtained Only during an eclipse. The Corona the great Silvery Halo which surround the Sun can be photographed Only during an eclipse because of the great Glare of the suns Light. However it becomes visible when the disc of the Moon cuts off the direct rays of the Sun. There Are other features of the Sun also which can be studied Only at the moment of a total eclipse. San Francisco fire april 18 on april 18, 1906, the mos serious earthquake disaster that has occurred in the United states took place at san Francisco when More than 500 persons lost their lives and property was dam aged to the extent of $200,000,000. The first Shock Felt shortly after 5 a. M., caused such a swaying of the ground As to wreck buildings and break Gas and water Mains. Be cause of the impairment of the latter it was impossible to control the fires which soon broke out. The fire raged in the heart of the business District for three Days. Dynamite and artillery were employed to destroy buildings to pre vent the spreading of the fire and ships from the Navy were summoned to Battle the flames from the water front. Despite the great number of deaths there was no great amount of privation or suffering because Relief measures were taken immediately by leading citizens. In addition. Congress gave prompt Aid and Relief funds were subscribed liberally All Over the United states. It seems to me it would be a help to me if my mind worked faster. A couple of Days ago i thought up almost precisely the proper retort for the chairman of the meeting but i did not remember it until three hours after the meeting had ended. Donald Ogden Stewart author and actor was functioning As Mas ter of ceremonies at a meeting of the actors fund matinee club. Various people of the theater spoke and one harassed Newspaperman. In his introduction Stewart twit Ted me with changeability in regard to the productions of his pen. The intent was kindly but the Edge of his remarks was Sharp. And i stood there dumb and fidgety without a thing to say in reply. Later or much too late i recalled the fact that i was almost literally the father of Don stewarts career on the stage. I mean the acting part of it. Writing plays like re bound was his own idea. But years ago when Don was still obscure i had a lecture manager and he did not. I went to the impresario and said this Young Fel Low Ogden Donald Stewart might be Fine for your circuit. I dont know How he talks but he writes awfully funny stuff. m to judgment seat and the author was duly signed and delivered and shipped to Wilmington del., where a to mans club awaited with some eagerness to hear him. The perfect poise and flexibility which Stewart since has achieved in Public appearances was not with him then. He gave his humorous address in i Low voice which failed to reach beyond the first five rows and even the people who heard were not amused. At least none gave any palpable indications of Delight. The hour dragged to its weary close with the frightened Stewart growing More and More depressed and inarticulate. This tragic first appearance occurred on a saturday night and on monday morning Bright and Early Don Stuart was at the impresario is office with a suggestion. I feel ashamed of myself he said. A that talk i gave before those people in Wilmington was a terrible bust. They hated it and i dont blame them. Ill Tell you what i wish Yourd do. I d like to Send the Check Back to those people. Ism worried. Dont worry. Stewart said the impresario after the lecture they refused to Send it a goal reached obviously it would not be pos sible for this department to conduct a permanent Amateur employment Agency. We had just two objects in View in getting up the give a Job till june Campaign. The most important was to Call Atten tion to the fact that unemployment existed. It seemed to us that too Many people were ignoring or under stress ing the condition. We also wanted to show that even a hastily assembled organization could achieve tangible results even though they might be no More than temporary. If this could be done in one com Heywood by Broun Munty by getting co operating forces together we Felt that it could be done elsewhere. We were unwilling to accept the theory that All the individual could do was to sit Back on his oars and wait for vast economic forces to get in their Subtle and deep seated influence. But to get Back to our own Back Yard i think that we Are now in a position to set a precise goal for our own Campaign. Including the re turns of saturday we had filled 372 jobs. When we have filled 1,000 jobs we will Call it a Day and let the final curtain Down on the give a Job till june drive. Of course we have bored a Good Many people already but Only a few have Vreken the trouble to com Plain. After All that old statute which made it compulsory to read newspaper columns has been rescinded. But Here at hand lies a complaint from a Reader who protests that we have said too Little rather than too much about unemployment. A to a the accusation to have noticed writes Biddy al that Many of the communications which make their Way into your columns either criticise or abuse its editor. So ill Start out boldly by telling you that i think you might have done More for the unemployed present and future if you had writ ten one column on the subject of birth control. Certain fundamental causes of unemployment Are charted. There seems to be More immediate Chance i Fellowship of 7 daily _ \ / lenten Devohn \ Friday april 18 overcoming the world read John 16 25-33. Memory verse be of Good cheer. I have overcome the world. John 16 33. Meditation these words sound strange in their setting. It looked As if the world had overcome Jesus. The existing authorities had denied his teaching and now they were about to deprive him of life. But one thing they had not done they had not overcome his love of god and his belief in gods love for men. For love and Faith he was willing to die. His death so vindicated god s love that it has made this Day one of joyous solemnity. The crass illumines our Hope Shames our doubts and Renews our Cour age. Jesus living Faith and Faith Ful life have made the Cross a sign by which men have conquered and have overcome the world. Prayer lord teach us to overcome. Make us steadfast and immovable serv ants of him whom we this Day commemorate. May his Faith re Side in us and the spirit which led him to the Cross descend upon us and fill our hearts with love of god and men. Amen. Ideals and opinions expressed n this column arc those of one of americans most inter Estinos writers and Are presented without Resard to their agreement or disagreement with the editorial attitude of this editor. For the widespread use of birth control than for a Radical change in our economic and political life. For it is possible even Likely for every one to practice birth control As soon As a few antiquated Laws on the subject Are modified. That will occur rapidly when the really potent forces that arouse Public opinion set up a great and continuous howl about the matter. Because the Laws do not affect the Well informed and the Well circumstanced who have Little or no trouble in getting information it is difficult for them to realize that it is literally inaccessible to masses of the people. Unfortunately these masses Are the ones most in need of it. Unemployment is Only one of the evils caused by what statisticians Call population pressure. The bread line is a sad sight but always the slums Are full of children who suf Fer slow starvation. The unwanted children of today Are the unemployed of tomorrow. I cant answer that.

There is danger in organization per be and there always has teen. The primary object of every sys tem is to preserve itself and the bigger it becomes the More Ruth less it grows in doing so. The machine. Age involves no greater de Gree of Monotony for the labourer than did the caste system of old Egypt or ancient India. To m u fundamentally we Are dealing with the same old problem of How much organization to tolerate for the Sake of social Progress and How Muen personal Liberty to retain for the Sake of individual initiative. People have stood at that Cross roads on innumerable occasions sometimes risking chaos for the Sake of having their own Way some times surrendering their Liberty in the Hope that they were about to enter the promised land. Mum same old Choice the alternative we face glitter with Gold rather than Armor is heralded by the Roar of machinery instead of blaring trumpets runs to office buildings rather than tem Ples and is led by frock coated millionaires instead of a Royal Breed. But it is the same old alternative tempting us with the Prospect of greater Security through Organiza tion on the one hand and challenging us to be satisfied with less for the Sake of Freedom on the other. Nun the alternative is not changed by the newer doctrines of socialism or communism because the tyranny of organized disciplined activities reacts on human beings in exactly the same Way whether it is imposed by a King a Board of directors or a soviet. The fundamental question is and always has been How much we can stand without losing that feeling of personal identity which does so much to make life seem Worth living.
