He couldn't expect to be anything else when he. decided on r. crusade for a reduction of all gov- eminent .salaries. The chances are that Wood will not -be able to put" over his program unless the administration becomes much more desperate for' economies than ; it is now, but Wood presumably will hold his old powerful post as chairman of the appropriations committee—if the Republicans, control the House.—and he" will .attract enough support to stir up a mean fight. , AnjJ when the'fight is over, one fears. Mr name will be a hissing ind byword for hundreds of thousands of the boys and girls who work for Uncle Sam , veto would be certain. An elec- tiorl is corninr along artel that fact is .borne in rtind constantly both at ; the White House and on Capi* toi--Hill.' •'"-'• ' New Orleans the I. C. C. is holding a public us week, at which $he Southwestern railroads are Twnry-^ * or the right to cut rates on cotton from Arkan- $nd Louisiana to the port city. This is a step in the right BC^n. It'has been brought about, however, not by any •counsel on the part of the railroad managers—but from 1 -' < * 1 - 1 lesson of truck and barge competition. - taches us anything at all, it teaches this: That ._c benefits of a lower rail rate on agricultural pro- I relief fronr freight-congested highways, depend ^n the pressure brought against the railroads "by .» faynjerg and traders in farm products. Industry j; railroad rates at every turn.'Industry is-successful, lers join everything, stick with nothing; agitate a lot «— act on nothing—and so in the last analysis they are T , .7e are probably wearisome to a good manyvrea'ders, al^H talking about-the-need, for agricultural organization; at its the truth. The .rail-rate problem is a'good example, "liusahlre the farmer not only has to battle the railroads, " ^ whole structure of. American industry, whose rates lave to be scaled up to'pro vide a lower, rqdre equitable for the agricultural regions. *** Greeley's Handwriting ., stories have" been told about Horace Greeley's no- jriously poor handwriting, which was a constant night- k/^Wa associates, and especially to the printers, on the. rk Tribune, r»ter, being given a Greeley manuscript to set up ,„> i -,„„.; time, exclaimed; "My God, if Belshazzar had i tJua writing on the wall he would have been more terri- l £han he was." Later it is said, Greeley wrote to the fore- l that the printer be discharged because he T ™.^,^^™. „.„„, typographical errors. The printer got hold of tine note befw leaving and carried it to the foreman of an- Athait newspaper as a recommendation—and got a job im- says he has already had promises of support from 16 or 16 members of congress, but the fact that he proposes to reduce congressional salaries along with the rest may' give you an Idea why he seems so ^surely loomed to disappointment. Even 'f the old gentleman were pro- losing tq exempt his colleagues! '.hey wouldn't have the nerve to tlash the incomes of stenographers, clerks and other workera vhile leaving their own $10,000 lilaries intact. The other big stumbling block vhich Wood faces is the opposi- ilon of the Hoover administration tself, of which the Indiana con- cressman Is ordinarily one of the .ta u richest supporters. Although he administration has come to •ealize that it has been powerless o avert wage cuts In private In- lustry. Hoover is .In no position 0 sign a bill to reduce the gov- irnraent's own salaries. He has >een so thoroughly committed to :he policy of maintaining wages ind his party propagandists have snade so much capital of his wlde- y commended stand that even if Congress were to hand him such 1 bill—rand even If a considerable miount of public opinion had ««ie to favor it—a presidential WHILE ago Wobd urged a general salary reduction beginning with the $2500 salaries. But hoto he has changed 'his mind and will attempt to hit all salaries from $1200 a year up. H« realized after his first blast that S0':per cent of government salaries were below $2500 and feeU that in order to benefit the country the reduction must be of wider scope. He would make re-, ducyons of 5 per .cent in the! $1201? to $2500 class, 8 per cent from $2500 to $10,000 and 10 per cent on everything above $1Q> That would bring the president's salary, down to. : $67,500. those of senators and representatives doWn toward $9000 and those of Vice President Curtis and the cabinet members to $13,500. At recent conventions both the National Federation of 'Federal Employes and the Postal Em- ployes' Assjftiation, representing- about 800.WO persons between them, adopted resolutions calling for aggressive salary increase campaigns. Dempsey is making a glorious come,back. Yes ($332,00i) for 14 appearances) plenty grand.

Might, teach the .canny .Scot something about thrift in garments.. Clothiers are "howling that" alito- mobiles have made motorists careless about -their clothes. But there are still times when a man must change attire. . !E federal employe's generally argue that many of them are still miserably underpaid and that the low level of the whole government scale vitiates Wood's assertion that their pay. was raised because of high living costs which have since been lowered. They also feel that Wood dislikes federal employes on general principles, as he accuses them of "living on the fat of the land." ' " Congress raised Its own salaries, from $7500 to $10,000 in 1926 and two years later passed tha Welch bill which raised the salary of the average federal worker about $125 a year and mado the maximum for the few highest paid professional and scientific groups $9000 instead of $7600. At that time many government workers hadn't had a raise for 20 years and about 75 per cent of them were employed at an aver' a*e of $1300 a year.
