LEA8BD WIFE SERVICE MASON CITY IOWA FRIDAY SEPTEMBER 28 1931 THIS PAPER CONSISTS OF TWO SECTIONS SECTION ONE Brains Are Classified Hopkins Splits New Deal Group Into Two Classes By HERBERT PLUMMER WASHINGTON Sept 28 The president of Dartmouth college up in New Hampshire Dr Ernest Martin Hopkins has laid down a new rule for classification of brains 1n government It makes reexamin ation of the characteristics of the Roosevelt new from top to bottom urgently necessary if it is to be applied From the president down who are Dr Hopkins explorers and who his probers Who of the Roose velt brain in Dr Hopkins phrasing are men intellectually brilliant but doctrinaire and who men Intellectually honest without brilliance In his address at Dartmouth Dr Hopkins drew this distinction be tween the types of brains necessary in government to safeguard the great social and political experi ments of the present And he called upon every friend of gov ernmental reform and of social ad vance to insist that provers be given equal place with explorers in such experimentation Lacking such trial and error methods he argued experimenta tion unaccompanied by critical judgments invites failure of aspir ations of political leadership in America for human risks a Stalin or a Hitler of vast politi cal power unchecked by any such ethical code as medicine knows against hazardous experimentation upon human New Deal Has Both The president would not phrase It the Hopkins way His gift of ex pression is of the political order He talks to and for the masses not in the rarified atmosphere of higher education He seeks homely similies and metaphors understandable to the man in the street Yet there is much to indicate something very like Dr Hopkins separation of explorers and provers as co equally essential to success of planned social progress has guided him instaffing the new The Moleys et al of the Roosevelt new deal1 are men of an essentially different type from its Johnsons its Harry Hopkins its Ickes its Jesse Jones its Henry Morgenthaii The Wal DaceTugwell combination to deal with the farm problem is the only assignment of the explorer type to executive and administrative functions In that case by his own Bayso President Roosevelt himself Is the If it doesnt work he has said he will be the first to eay so and seek another method A Third Classification There is a third classification in the new however that Dr Hopkins formula wholly ignores What will be done with the Parleys the Ropers the Louie Howes and a lot more who are neither academi cally trained explorers or provers but experienced and wilcy politic ians They are just as essential in a government of by and for the people te success of any social or economic planning as the brain trust con tingents You have to have the votes first all to start experimentation If nny long range project is launched they become doubly necessary to carry on That is the phase of the new deal they are concerned with right
