NEWS REVIEW OF CURRENT EVENTS President Hoover's First Year Is Both Praised and Attacked. Byj EDWARD W. PICKARD WHETHER Herbert Hoover's first year as President is to be con- sidered successful depends largely on the political bias and economic c0nvl~ lions of the one whodees the ~constd- ering, The varying views on the mat- ter were expressed in. the senate by Senator Simeon D. Fess of.,Ohio, speaking for the administration Pa~Y, and Senator Pat Harrison of MisSis- sippi, speaking for the opposRlon. Senator Fees especially praised the President's efforts to combat business depression, saying: "I regard the handling Of the economic .forces that were playlng toward disaster by the President am the most outstanding ac- complishment In the history of the government of which I have any knowledge on economic lines." He' maid he was not ,entirely sure that it was possible to avoid the Cycles in business In which a high brininess level is followed by a depression. "If it esn be done," continued the Ohio sen- ator~ "we have the White House Jrobtem eight In dealln Senator the tariff, the naval armament ~confer- once, other international questions, and prohibition: :~ Senatar Hatreds sald he wished, to t'ongratnlate Senator Fess"~on his audacity and nerve In planatlous of 1 the:~adm~tsttatl0n dU~ the year." ~/ " "It the failure to solve J is ~ an achievement, istretlon for the last ease," aald gusting the farmers of achievement, then this isa an aehlevemenL tiou Is a succe~ the part eta ment. then S wt year ls, a great sueee s. :~, UNEMPLOYMENT hi of of the immediate government tion for the tratlom Secretary of L~Mbdr following th~ asserted that dent's bee~ l dense the next few weeks tl~oUgh thefeder~ggen- cles called lat?~ faction by the Presi- dent, Senator, ocrat, has zatlon of employment in presslon, 000 too with the statements of wan were sistant Stewart Hopkins. stand, ton and Men the larntlon abolition traffic. the Increase by leaps and bounds, and au illicit liquor traffic Infinitely worse than the open saloon." Mrs. Miller struck out at the W. C. T. U., which, she asserted, is corrupt- ing legislative bodies with its political tactics, Next day the drys began the intro. duction of testimony with the fret of some fifty witnesses from aH part~ of the country and from all walks of life. They led off with. Samuel Cl'owther, a writer who has been gathering infer. mation on the liquor question for a magazine; Edward Keatlng, former congressman from Colorado; Dr. Dan. tel A. Poling, president of the World's Christian Endeavor union, and Henry M. Johnson. Louisville lawyer. Mr. Crowther said he had asked Tho~aa A. Edison and Henry Ford to attend the hearing but they were un- oableto do so. However, both sent tele- grams wm~nly endorsing prol~lbition and the Eighteenth amendment. It is noteworthy that so far most of the drys emphasize espbclally the economic benefits.the country has de- rived from prohibition, while most otl the wets dwell particularly on the al- leged break down of morals resulting from it. NOT at aH to the surprise of tlmse conversant with the grain trade, conditions in the grain market became such.that the federal farm board found it necessary to modify Its activities in bolstering up wheat prices through the Grain Stabilization corporation and the~ Farmers' National Grain corpora- tion. ~'t~e change In poilcy, as announced by Chafrman Alexander Legge of the farm board, consists In abandonment of the arbitrary loan price basis es- tablished by the board last fall, ,No more grain will be bOught on that basis, 1Hr.

HOOVER'S cure,salon to in- vestigate conditions In Haiti is getting an earful--several of them. In- deed. humediately after its arrival iu Port-au-Prince some twelve hundred native wom~n prayed in public for an end of American occupation and then paraded through the streets past the headquarters of the commisslon, voic- Ing an appeal for, the "liberation" of Haiti. On succeeding days the com- missioners heard prominent leaders of the Nationalists denounce Geu. John H. Russell, the American high commissioner, as virtualJy a dictator whose puppet Is President Borne. They demand a free election of a president and one of them said: "If the council of state dares to elect a president on April 14 instead of per- mitting a popular election. United States machine guns will sink all Hal. tians in blood." They still want the United States to help them In the sanitary service, but insist all other American activities should be abol- ished. Some asked that the commis- sion supervise the election, but Chair- man Forbes told them this was ira. possible. The Dominican Republic has quieted down after the resignation of Presi- dent Vasquez and the installation of Gen. Rafael Ureas, leader of the in- surgent movement, as provisional head of the government. THtYRSDAY was denominated "In- ternational unemployment day" by the Moscow Communists attd parades and other demonstrations by the un- employed were held In many clties.I~ Europe and America. In so~me places there were bloody encounters with th~ police, and in others tberetwas no dis- order worth mentioning. Among the activltles of the Com- munists should be recorded the insti- gation and management 0f a rehe|ll0n of I4,(100 high school pupils In Manila. They struck nominally because of al- leged insults by a woman teacher., and the Reds incited them to sanguinary emmuntera with the police.

Traveling With the Wrong Crowd "Dad, 1 need to have a chat with ymL' said Bob in kindly affectionate tones as Mr. Smith- I~ougn came into th~ living room, his arm loaded with paper~ and arranged his big chair under the read- ing lamp. "Yes, kid. what's on your chest now'/ Hope you aren't broke again ?" "No, Dad, got money but I wanted to talk to you about a little incident that occurred at school today Mr. Pringle, the principal, seems to have taken an unconunon interest In me this semester. Every time lie meets me in the hall tie slaps ate on the bacg and says, 'How goes it?' Well, yester- day he called me into his little private office and said. 'Bob. I've had my eyo on yOU for some thne now ant] l want to make a suggestion. I think you're trav- eling with the wrong crowd.' Why. Dad. he knocked the pins right out from under me but he did It so nicely l couldn't get mad. Now, what 1 want to know. Dad, Is how clln a fellow know that he Isn't traveling with the right crowd? Bill and Harry and Chub have all been l~ere ninny times. Yon know them most as well as I do. They aren't particularly bad are they? Just because they're a bit noisy and col- legiate doesn't stamp them as unde- sirablesT' Dad waited for more but evidently Bob had, 'shot his wad' as he would have said. "Pringle is a very competent man. Bob. well thought of throughout the city, a real educator, interested be- yond his mere Job. His suggestions on any point would bc worthy of a careful consideration. I've said to your mother several times that i thought Bill and Harry were 'light- weights.' Evidently Prlngle thinks 80, tOO. "Bob, we were talking the other day about laws. Do yoh recollect how many there were in every realm of life and bow much progress after all was Just a record of cur having dis- covered~ new laws and understanding old ones and more nearly aligning our lives in harmony with funda- mental laws?" "Yes, Dad, 1 do, but what's that got to do with the gangV' "A very great deal and here Is how. There is a law, a most fascinating thing, which establishes the fact that all forms of life, from the lowest up, tiwown together intimately under the influence of the same environment. tend decidedly to .become alike, in other words Bob, a f,andamental law of life says you tend to become like the thing with wlHch you Intimately associate, "Boys gang as naturally as bees hive or sheep flock, and having ganged more or less spontaneously; the law of~ association begins to work and the individual units In the group begin an elaborate proce.~ of give and take in every" realm of life. Group opinions begin to form; group attI. tudes to every conceivable thing be- gin t6 shape themselves without the group scarcely being conscious or It Group opinions and group attitudes soon determine group actlons and then ,ou have results, for Bob. to n great degree we are what we do. "The fellow who plays clean and fair Is a good aport. The fellow who cheats and takes unfair advantage is a poor~t~port" The hey whosemanners of acting Is genteel and thoughtful of others is "a getRleman. "Let's see further. If you wish to become a great sprinter $]ho do you train with, a coach with a: wooden leg who never ran a rare~ Or' suppose you wish to become ~ great violinist, with whom do you study, a trap drum- mer? Great atltletes become like their c~aches, musicians become like their nmsters and so the marvelous process goes on and on and on. "Of course it iS possible for a per- son ,by determination and sheer will power .to resist the influence of the group and stand upon his own but the tendency under such circumstances is for him to wltbdraw from the group In which he is not congenial and grav- itate to a group with lnteresth like hi~l own. So while ./; is true that you can modify the law of association In a way, yet ultimately tend to become ilke the group With which you in- timately live. "Undesirable associations account for more crime than any other single fact. "If your prlnelpal, who Is friendly to you, who sees you every day and feels your influence in the school. says to you, 'Bob. you're traveling with the wrong crowd,' then your as- sociations are beginning to show. He knows that you are capable of better thlng~ He expects more of you than he is getting by way of a positive stand on moral principles." "But. Dad, can't one boy reform a gang?" "Ha. ha, my boy. that is the alibi that keeps many a boy" from steppln~ up forward--n false loyalty again. No yon will not reform your gang, Bob, very rarely if ever. If your gang influence is not of the best, get Into one that is. Have all the ad- vantage of a Hit. and none of tl~ disadvantage of a drag." (~, 1930, Western Newspaper Union.)
