PRICE 5c COPlf EACEFUL The News Review •By BRUCE CATTON- fMedical Society Holds District Meeting in Hope |Six Southwestern Counties Are Represented as Session Opens PROMINENT SPEAKER most interesting stunt that will be tried in Germany this winter will be an uttmpt by the Nazi authorities to persuade everybody that it's nice to be hungry. ; , Germany faces a terrifically difficult 'winter. The economic crisis gets graver.. An actual shortage in certain food supplies is seen. The raw materials on which many of Germany's grcntesl industries depend connol be obtained, because Germany has nothing lo use for money lo buy them. So, facing a season of want and hardship, the Hitler government is preparing to meet it in a new way by persuading the people that tightening your belt is great fun. The opening' guns in this strange propaganda campaign have already been fired. The bad economic situation is being blamed on the errors of Hitler's predecessors in office and on the hostility of certain "intcrnationl cliques" outside of Germany. XXX After this will come great broadsides extolling the virlucs of endurance and self-sacrifice, A tremendous barrage of oralory and newspaper articles will glorify the Spartan .ability to do withoul things. Germany wil be sold, if the energetic Nazis can possible accomplish it, on the idea that a winter of extreme hardship is only a new challenge to patriotism. Now this is interesting, not only because Hcrr Hitler is going to try to make an asset out of a great liability. Its real significance lies in its revelation of the tremendous power which control of the sources of propaganda gives to a man or his party in this modern world. XXX A distotorship docs not, in Ihe lasl analysis depend directly on guns and bayonets. It depends on the power to mold public opinion. All that guns and bayonets can do is to put the power exclusively in the dictolor's hands. In olhcr words, a dictatorship does not survive because it makes people put up with its sway; it survives, be"cause, literally, it can mack them like it. It docs violence to the mind and not to the body. II crcalcsa slale of mind lhat is favorable to it, and as long as it can do that its acts of terrorism arc only incidental. Could there be a greater object lesson in favor of free speech and free press? As long as the sources of propaganda are open to all there can be no dictatorship. The critical picture of the unemployment relief picture in the United Stales is graphically shown by the news that jusl about one-fourth of the inhabitants of New York are now receiving substantial relief of some kind. Public Wufarc Commissioner Hodson says that fully 200,000 New York families arc on relief now and thai the number may rise to half a million before the end of the year. The effort to find the money to finance this tremendous relief load is jarring New York to its foundations, | naturally enough. Such a loud cannot be borne indefinitely. It canot he borne at all without full public recognition of the prime nn ii Uinee of keeping people from starvation. If Ihe New York case wr<-r an isolated instance, things would not lie bad. Rut it is not. All across the country the .situation i.s similar. It is nol pleasant lo Ihink of what may happen if a substantial and lasting industrial revival (Iocs not come very soon. XXX Centuries ago when the Spaniards were looting the inealeuably rich chests of the Incus of Peru, the job ot getting the gold home was a ticklish and uncertain one.

"Kingfish" Long had 2000 or more soldiers and Mayor Walmsley had an almost equal number of policemen. But, under a peace past signed by the two factions, no guardsmen or policemen will be allowed at the polls. Any election disputes wil be handled by an arbitration committee commanding a flying squadron of 300 armed men. . : ' After almost Iwo;, r m6hths of constant turmoil, carrying a threat of pitched battles on, (he streets of New Orleans, the election promised one of the most peaceful bullotings in the. city's .history. ,.' ! >-- • • ' t • Pray -for Peace Uneasy over the great store of armaments in the city, Dean, William D.
