Democrat Candidate for President States His Views NEW YORK Feb 28 Vf Davis democratic presidential candidate In 1924 has broken his silence on the subject of the pres ent administration with a criticism of the new deal His comment was made at the invitation of the Foreign Policy as sociation and the World Peace foundation which made public last week a pamphlet written for them by Secretary of Agriculture Henry A Wallace entitled America Must Choose In it the secretary Invited dispassionate discussion of the choice of economic nationalism in ternationalism or a middle course but declared whatever the course a certain degree of regimented opinion is necessary Not Fully Paid The farmer who raises more than he can sell suffers in not be ing fully paid for his efforts said Davis in a letter to the association To avoid this the government steps in and pays him in advance so that he may escape the danger of unre quited toil All that has happened in the end is the one mans burden has been shifted to another mans back As a permanent policy it is obviously unthinkable The law of supply and demand cannot be thwarted by govern mental pricefixing or even by ex periments with the currency Those who bite on that rock are sure to break their teeth Wisdom in gov ernment I submit consists in dis covering the natural laws and fol lowing them not in devising hasty expedients whereby they may be circumvented Expects No Miracles I do not look for miracles to save us or hope for gold at the foot of the rainbow I have more faith in the prosaic process of following paths marked out by reason com monsense and the past experience of mankind This translates in my opinion into terms among others of less restraint on human activity not more Wallace in his pamphlet frankly stated that the administration is sparring with the situation until the American people are ready to face the facts No Chance to Turn Bock We are well aware he contin ued that our present machinery for production adjustment may not be at all like the machinery we shall have to design and operate for the longer future But we are now fated for grave adjustments with no chance to turn back Whether we take economic na tionalism internationalism or com promise on a middle course a stead fast national allegiance to any fixed course requires a certain degree of regimented opinion Iowa Experiences Relief
