THE SAGUACHE CRESCENT i One of the Modern Villages in By THORNTON LIGHTFOOT IS RECKLESS IN HIS search for the new stranger who had come to the Green Forest. IAghtfoot the Deer was wholly reck- less. He no longer stole like a gray shadow from thicket to thicket as he had done when searching for Miss Daintyfoot. He bounded along, care- less of how much noise he made.

After such exhibitions of anger he would pause to listen, hoping to hear some sound which would tell him where the stranger was. 14ow and then he found the stranger's tracks, and from them he k~ew that this stranger was doing Just what he had been doing, i~eklng to find the beauti. tul Miss Dalntyfoot.

Washlngton.--The President's lat- est message to congress, asking more than a billion and a ThUnder half in new money Over Re/~ef to spend on relief as he sees fit has caused political thunder to rumble again. It has brought out in the open much of the undercurrent of gossip that has been going on about political racketeering with " federal funds and it has brought into sharp relief, Just ahead of the spring cam- paigning, the fact that the federal government has used something like $8,000,000,000 under the guise of re- lief since President Roosevelt took of- rice. Naturally, the situation Is immersed in politics. All of the charges that were flung at Mr. Roosevelt during previous sessions of congress when he had requested that he be given, as he was given, blank checks on the treas- ury, have been revived. In addition, new accusations and disclosures of petty graft and political machinations have been dug up and flaunted in the face of the New Deal leaders. More and more of these are coming to the surface and there is no longer any question that throughout the relief or- ganization there Is polities. This is true notwithstanding the strongly worded statement by Mr. Roosevelt that politics was not to figure in the administration of relief in any way. All of this leads up to the conclu- sion that whenever the federal govern- ment horns In on administrative af- fairs of states, counties or municipal- ities, the organization becomes so ex- tensive that it is impossible for those at the top in Washington to know what goes on. It is but another way of saying that the federal government ~ought to confine itself to federal af- fairs, matters of national scope in. stead of attempting to supersede the local governments In any function Since we are heading Into a cam- paign in which Mr. Roosevelt is seek- lug reelection, his Charge opposition is making Waste much of two phases of the spending and relief situations. They are stressing the waste that they charge has per- meated every phase of the relief ef- fort in the last three years as well as the waste that has taken place in the countless alphabetical agencies that Mr. Roosevelt has built up in the fed- eral government. The relief machinery, Roosevelt op- ponents claim, has been converted into a gigantic political machine, the chief object of which Is to re-elect Mr. Roosevelt. They claim as well that there has been created a bureaucracy that makes us. as Individuals, responsi- ble to a thousand little dictators who act as prosecution, Judge and Jury over our every coming and going. All of these are harsh accusations but there is enough evidence available now to make it appear that-there is, at least, some truth upon which such charges can be based. Of course, politicians will magnify all phases of every subject which they discuss. The opposition will make the crimes look heinous and the adminis- tration spokesmen will make every- thing look pure. Neither one is Jffsti- fled in going quite to the extent of the indicated trend. It seems to me that voters ought not be fully convinced by either side but that they ought to examine the picture from the local viewpoint where the evidence is first- hand and where the people who~dld a good Job or who were guilty of fraud or corruption are known to the voters. Then, If in November the election re- suits for the whole country show a prepouderance one way or another, the voters will have established their will am being either In favor of or. definite- ly opposed to management of such things from Washington. There are 3.071 counties in the Unlt- ed States. In nearly every one of them. there are a ~ore Republican and a Politics Democratic county chairman. In many. of the counties the Democratic court, ty chairmen are trying to use the WPA and its relief setup for political advan- tage. In an equal number of coun- ties Republican county chairmen are watching for and reporting irregular- Ities. There can be no doubt, there- fore, that the charges about relief be- Ing used politically will Increase in number as the campaign pr0gre~es if there is ground for the charges. So, it is made to appear that the local voters will have a complete picture of condi- tions upon which to base their Judg- ment Two recent ins~nces where impor- tant individuals have called attention to alleged corruption and political maneuvering under guidance of relief leaders serve to support ti~e conten- tion 1 have Just advanced that the local communities will have complete facts before them. I refer to the charges by Senator Holt. Democrat, of West Virginia, that the whole relief organization in his state is honey- combed wlfh politics and the bitter at- tack by Governor Pincher, Pennsyl- vania Republican, upon what he called tl~ manhandling of relief administra- tion in the state in which he formerly was the chief executlve~ Relief Ad- ministrator" Hopkins, with the aid of politicians, has denied these charges in toto. Senator Holt called the Hop- kln's'denial a whitewash of his own appointees and Mr. Pinchot turned loose a fresh fire. This sor~ of thing probably will de- velop in every state In the Union. I referred to the Presidential mes- sage asking an additional billion and a half for relief. And Asks This would not have New Taxes created quite so much of a storm had it not followed closely on the heels of the White House request for new taxes. The combination of taxes and an additional appropriation to be used as previous blank checks have been used by Mr. RooseveR has enabled those who are opposed to the President and those who, while they may support him for re*election, are not in accord with some of his policies, to make pub- lic statements of their positions to a better advantage than was possible before. If they had been able only to oppose relief, administration support- ers could have accused them of being opposed to the relief of destitute. To put taxes and a blank check together simply offers additional ammunition and a good many members of congress will use It before the new relief ap- propriation is voted. I think there Is no doubt that Mr. Roosevelt will get the money but there will be a great deal of accusing-and denying, respectively, before the vote is taken. That will be necessary in order to "make a record" upon which senators and representatives can seek re-election. When Mr. Roosevelt was voted $4,- 880,000,000 a year ago, his opponents threw up their hands and said that "you can't beat $4,880,000,000 for re- election." Now, one hears obserwtiona~ frequently expressed that while "youg. can't beat $4,880.000,000 for re-elec- tion," it is entirely possible that $4,- 880,000,000 plus almost that much more may beat itself. In other "words, I have attempted here to present a com- prehensive analysis of the pros and cons in order to show that since poll- tics has crept in, has permeated the relief setup, the AAA organization and other New Deal agencies, it Is entirq- ly possible for a reaction to de~elop whereby the vast sum of money would be the cause of defeat rather than the cause of reelection for Mr. Roosevelt. I am making no election prediction. That would be utterly foolish. What I have sought to do, however, plainly and simply, is to show how local cam- munlties are going to rule the roost to a greater extent in the 1936 election than usually is the case. Much is being made of the Presb- dent's proposal to tax the surpluses of corporations. I Sp[~ on have hitherto report- Tax Plcm ed to you something of the nature of the tax proposals but there have been de- velopments that bring the subject agaih to the fore. O~ie of these, per- haps the most interesting one, is dif- ferences that have arisen between men who are supposed to be the Pre~ ldent's closest advisers. Professor Raymond Moley, now a magazine ed- itor, lately criticized the tax plan most vigorously in his publication. At the same time, attention was directed here to the recorded attitude of Prof. Rex- ford Guy TugwelL Professor Tugwell published a book called "The Indu~- trial Decline" not so long ago and in that volume he advocated the central of capital by the "driving of eoroorate surpluses into the open investment market" by taxation. These two views simply cannot be reconciled and yet they came from two individuals who have been very close to Mr. Roosevelt in an advisory ~ay ever since Mr. Roosevelt entered the White House. Professor Moley takes ~e position, editorially, that If, during the depres- sion, American industry bad been stripped of all surpluses, few of even the greatest corporations could have sttrvived. He regards surpluses as life insurance policies for corporattous and holds the conviction that unless a corporation is permitted to retain funds as it sees fit, it cannot protect itself when our economic structure goes into a tailspin such as that thorough' which we have been passing. The difference in viewpoint of these two men shows a sad state of confu- sion among the "economic planners of the there abundant life," and demon- strates, among other things that Pro- lessor Tugwell still has very great influence with the President While we have not heard many of Profe~oe Tugwell's speeches lately, and It is probably true, as publicly stated by the opposition, that Professor Tugwell has been muzzled for the period of the campaign, there are many things be- ing done under Presidential orders that have their origln/In the Tugwell brain. He Is proceeding merrily on his way with the Resettlement Administration program, of which he is head. and has 14.000 employees on his pay roll. All of which seems to indicate that while Prol~essor Tugwcli will not make any more speeches calling upon farmers and laborers to ally themselves against "our commn enemy," he is still a very effective member of the New Deal administration. @ Western Now~r U~
