The News Reviev «y CAT™ I T is easy to be glib about the victims of the depression; easy to say airily that jobless men can live on their savings if they have been prudent, can get help from relatives, and can, all in all, "get along somehow."

Protection Is Sought Against "Wild Cows" I'OPLAK BLUFK Mo. -(7P)~Uut- Icr county farmers have asked Sheriff Lester Massintjhiiin to protect their live.-: anil properly from the "wild tow: " of Butler county. , 'Ihe iiirmers. headed by A. B. Par- Irnberry. said the cows are wild; that they do not know Ihe purposes of fences and that Ihe siyht. of a human being just "burns (hem up." The cows were shipped to Arkansas from North Diikotn as a part of the federal project and wandered into Missouri, (he formers say. Piirteiibcrry sai,d farmers in the .-cclicr were afraid (o let their children 30 into the woods alone. But it is n little different when you take a close-up look at things. Such a look is provided in n study just completed by the U. S. Department of Labor, The department's ex- PCI-I.S investigated the cases of 1000 representative railway employes to sec what happens to n wage earner when hard limes come. These workers took a general 10 per cent cut in February, 1932, but short lime and lows of overtime work had already reduced their pay materially, so that during the four years of the depression half of them had lost as much as 30 per cent of their incomes. In 1932 .for instance, two-thirds of these men earned less than S1500; only 18 per cent got as much as 51750. XXX Meanwhile, many family burdens, increased. Fully 200 of the workers took jobless friends and relatoivcs into their homes. Many others made regular gifls of cash or groceries to needy families in their neighborhoods. So what happened? To begin with, savings vanished. Nearly all of these 1000 used up their bank accounts; and half of them had lo sacrifice their in- siiraiicc policies. In 115 families, all with small children, the daily supply of milk was reduced. Thirty-two families cut off their milk entirely, Nearly all of the families cut down drastically on their purchases of butter, meat, fresh vegetables and fruits. XXX Health was neglected. In nearly a third of the 1000 families, one or more members required medical attention, but none could afford it. Teeth were badly neglected. Requests from tht school ahlhorities for denial or mcdica attention for children were repeatedly ignored, "Lodge, club 'and church memberships were dropped. In 135 families subscriptions lo magazines and newspapers had been cancelled. Many of these persons said they had not even even seen a movie for years. As one man put it, "when Sunday comes, we just sit." This then, is a picture of the human cost of the depression. It is worth remembering that thecs 1000 families were far better prepared than most to meet the depression, and suffered much les than the average. But the picture is, nevertheless, an appalling one. It is, as the Labor Department experts remark, a picture of a slow retreat from relative security toward destitution." XXX If the formation of the American Liberty League, with such prominent Democrats as Al Smith and John W. Davis in the van, should help to precipitate a complete new alignment of political parties, it will be a very excellent Ihing for the country. This organization seems—for the moment at least—lo be without political bias. It is, clearly, a conservative group; and for that reason it is idcfil- y adapted to crysUillizt; and formulate ju: opposition to the New Deal. As a nation we are going to make some decisions of stupendous impor- ance in the next few years. We shall )e able, to mack them much more in- elligcntly if our politics reflects a clean-cut distinction between conservatives and liberals. The present situation, with each o.f he major parlies suffering from such division, is not adapted lo serve vis well in time of crisis. XXX II will be interesting lo see whether the Ontario legislature puts through the "anti-ransom" law suggested by Atlorney CJcncra! Roebuck. The official would have the police given authority to clone the hank acount.s, seal Ihe .safely deposit vaults and otherwise supervise the finances of kidnap- ed persons and their relatives. The theory of this is, of course, to Several Nabbed With Whisky In Police Roundup Local Officers Raid Several Places Here, Operators Arrested LONG COURT DOCKET Charges Are Aired by Judge Lemley Tuesday Morning A police round-up of whisky violators here resounded in municipal court Tuesday when a score of defendants faced charges of possessing liquor, drunkenness and driving automobiles while intoxicated.

Hoover's Article Stirs Washington Former President Hits at Roosevelt's New Deal Policies WASHINGTON -(/P)- .Political Washington Tuesday wondered if Herbert Hoover was planning an at-/ tempt to return to the White House. Speculation .entirely informal thus far, was stirred by an article written by Mr. Hoover and published in the current issue of Saturday Evening Post. The former president asserted tha Ihe New Deal was an usurpation o liberty. He was promptly (Jiallcjiged by Sec retary Ickcs, a former Republican Mr. Ickcs said that when Hoove speaks of liberty, he talks of the rights of properly. The former president, in his first liscusioii of political questions since le left the White House, decries "cc- momic regimentation" and of it says "The whole thesis behind this program is the very theory that man is mt the pawn of the state." Mr. Hoover's coyprighlod article is itled: "The Challenge to Liberty.' ne Saturday Evening Post released portion and not the complete arti- le for newspaper publication. In its .statement accompaning the release, the weekly magazine says: "Although there is no mention ol the present White House incumbent hy name, a digest of the staggering number of powers delegated to the chief executive is made with the author frankly in disagreement both with current administration policies and with the un-American altitude of Congress in yielding virtually dictatorial powers to tile president." Liberty Being "Destroyed" Afler sounding an opening theme of opposition to dictatorial governments throughout the world, Mr. Hoover writes; "In haste to bring under control the. sweeping social forces unleashed by the political and economic dislocations of the World war, peoples and governments arc hlindingly wounding, even destroying, those fundamental human liberties which have been the foundation and inspiration of progress."
