Washburn- T HE ARKANSAS GAZETTE this morning makes a potent answer to Republican critics of President Roosevelt's inflation bill. "Its more radical provisions are permissive, not mandatory," says the Gazette. "The chief executive is not directed by confess, for example, to issue 3 billion dollars of greenbacks or reduce the gold content of the standard dollar. He is merely empowered to do either or both of these things if lie shall see fit." The Hepubllcnns' played a mkerable —csjbll of partisan politics Friday night when Senators Heed (Pennsylvania) and Walcott (Connecticut), and Hoprc- scnativc Sncll (New York) signed a party statement declaring that If the Roosevelt bill is passed this govcrn- I11c , lt " may find as dit i thc governments of.Germany and France, that inflation once started feeds upon itself and soon gets completely out of control," Thc statement seems to have been inspired by Ogdcn Mills, late Hoover secretary of the Treasury, who although he didn't sign the statement WHS in conference with Uecd, Walcotl und b'ncll just before they published it. XXX This comes with poor grace from gentlemen who, while they may not have caused the panic, have prolonged it through lack of political courage to "face the music." ' No one has yet written the true slory of thc Hoover administration. Thc country blames Hoover on the Republicans. Republicans blame the panic on Hoover. Actually, it has always seemed that Hoover had a glim- Futrell to Direct Inquiry in Crisis Faced by Schools Will Seek Solution to Be Laid Before 1935 Session of Legislature A CITIZENS'"GROUP Governor Critical of Management Mistakes, "Partly Responsible" LITTLE ROCK — (/P) — A pfar-reaching study of the whole common school situation, embracing both finances and management, is to be undertaken by Governor Futrell through a non-partisan committee of citizens. The results of thc study presumably would form the basis for recommendations for n solution of thc vexing school problem by the 1935 legislature. Writes to P..T. A. The committee is lo be set up at nn enrly dale, Governor Fulrcll said in o letter to the Arkansas Parent-Teachers Association, outlining his plans and asking its co-operation. "The financial 'plight of the schools in this state is distressing," said the governor. "The situation could not be avoided in its entirety in view of tlie severe depression throughout thc nation. However, it might have been minimized had a more forlsightcd policy been pursued by those in charge of oi(r schools. MliiM! ViJMMX* 1 ttf-vt&s- 1 \ik- -ti»' i--,.»».w^.A--n^Ji-..'. L V-«.V! ' Challenge lo Citizens "The situation of the schools today, with respect lo both finances and management, calls for the best thought nnd study of our most patriotic citizens,'patrons of the schools, and those who by thc-ir luxes maintain them. "It is my intention in thc near future to ask a committee of citizens and taxpayers of this state, who arc intensely interested in lie welfare 'of .the schools, and who are in no wist Concerned with politics, to confer and make a study of the entire school situation, to the lid that a sound plan may bo adopted whereby every child in this stale may hove an opportunity to acquire at least a common school situation." Moral Load Being Placed on School El Dorado Educator Observes to Kiwanis Character Is Most Important "Ccurti'sy opens more doors to a successful mid happy life than any other one human characteristic," W. C. Ware, of the Junior College of El Dorado, told the Kiwanis Club Friday night. Mr. Ware pleaded for character-building among the younger generation, i\s a part of a program of under-privelcgcd child work suggested for tin; Hope club. Seven members from I'll Dorado cnme to Hope Friday night to stage this program for the local club. "Tlie problem of character-building in children is turned over to schools more and more each year," Mr. Ware continued, "although recent sessions of thc state legislature don't seem to realize this drift. And so i becomes thc problem of civic clubs, scouts and other ui-ganiziitioiis, as well." He asked for Kiwanis support of thit; problem through work which might teach chivalry, character, chastity and consecration to a useful work, in the minds of the younger generation. Other members of the El Dorado club attending were: Floyd H. Smith, Nace B. Crawford. W. A. Halliburton, Dr. H. E. Hannah, Charles Lehigh and Dr. D. E. White. Mr. Halliburton said there were fcverul hundred buys of scout age in Hope, and encouraged thc Hope club tu organize more troops, and include a trorj)) of sea scouts for older boys, us well us an organization f junior scouts. Scout work offers the boys' best aininj! for future useful citizenship, haracter development, and a start toward vocational guidance, Nacc Crawford, scout executive of El Dorado said. Little Miss Joy Ramsey gave one of her famous athletic dances which contained Revci-iil new and difficult feats. All with her usual grace in dancing. Mary Louise Keith entertained with two songs. The Hope Boys band entertained with several band selections. It was announced that thc band would bp available for several of the Kiwanis good-will trips which start Friday night at Spring Hill. mcring idea that a world conference was necessary on monetary questions, thc tariff and the. war debts—but his party bound him. And Hoover hadn't tlie political experience or courage of a Roosevelt to blast his way through. Already Mr. Roosevelt has started an nil-important conference with thc great powers in Washington, 1 looking to measures that will clear away the blockade of international trade. Republican criticism of his inflation bill is beside thc point. As thc Gazette justly observes, Roosevelt's inflation measure Is"'qualified by a great big "IF." In Its most radical aspects I suspect it is for use probably only in the event of a complete failure of international conferences to achieve economic peace between nations. XXX Here's one for The Star's newsboys. The wife of one of our well known city subscribers called up Friday night "And this time, just to "make sure," she said, "I tied up our dog." I should say that newsboy is in thc middle of a bad iix. Austin Appointed County Examnier County Judge Accedes to Petition Signed by County's Teachers E. E. Austin, former Hempstead county school superintendent, has been appointed by County Judge H. M. 'Stephens as county school examiner, it was announced Saturday. Austin's appointment came afeer Hempstead county school teachers circulated a petition among the variods schools recommending that he be given the position. It was said the petition was widely signed among the teahers in the county schools. It was unerstood that Austin will be paid $600 per year, and will maintain an office in the county courthouse at Washington. His duty will be to conduct teacher's examinations and to file necessary school reports with the State Department of Education. Conway Normal Will Ask Loan From R. F. C.

"I am against a special session "I am against the beer bill, now, proposed. "I would be against the beer bill even if .the session actually is called." Added to the statement of 'E. G.

Editor's Note: This is the conclusing story in a series on the House of Morgan, soon to be the subject of senatorial inquiry. BY WILLIS THORNTON NEA Service Writer NEW YORK—Every one of the House of Morgan has been notified to be ready to appear before the Senate Banking and Currency Committee's investigation of stock market and security practices, soon to reconvene. The cominitte 1 , backed by greater •> authority than has ever beeu invoked in a similar inquiry, is expeetcd to probe deep into the House of Morgan and similar private banking institutions. This is not a prosecution, but an effort to paint a background on whk-lj later may be traced the outlines of the "new deal" in banking. Broader powers were granted by the Senate without debate when initial questions put to the House of Morgan met a rebuff from John W.
