CKOVVN Clly Editor, New Orleans States (Written for NEA Service-' NEW ORLEANS -NEA- The year was 11128. Huey P. Long, in his early thirties, from the red hills of North •Lcuisinna, had been elected governor, .nnd had been in office only n few months. Robert Ewing, old time ' political Tighter, who knew all the tricks of the 'business, und who. like Mae West, 'thought that some things ain't no sin, was talking to the youth whom he alone had made governor of Louis- by Mrs. Dewey Hcndrix, followed by the circle count, showing a good allcndance. A most helpful devotional was given by Mrs. John Wel- jorn on "Temperance in Our Lives." closing with prayer and the song, "O Waster, Let Me Walk wilh Thee." Vliss Evelyn Murph sang, "An Even- ng Prayer" accompanied by Miss Har- •iet Story. The program on Temper-; •mcc was led by Mrs. L. W. Young hairman of the Christian Social Rc- ations Department.

Ladies Specialty Shop "Excusive But Not Expensive" Modernization nnd repair, now made possible for properly owners through new crcflt ch.mnels opened up by the Federal IToii.sing Administration, write their own golden rewards in enhanced property values, increased rentiibililj :m<l greater comfort. Emphasising this, the Federal Hotis ing Administration lays stress on tin rich returns that await those who invest even modestly in renovation am reconditioning of homes and buildings Ihot have suffered the ravages of deterioration during the era of economic stress. The opportunities offered property owners who avail themselves' of the National Housing Act to modernize and repair are greater than any over offered before, according to the Federal Housing Administration. Aside from the advantages gained by making the improvements there is to be considered the simple, liberal credit plan laid down by the Federal Government's newest recovery agency. Under this system, it is possible to borrow between ?100 and ?2,000 for this form of work nt carry ing charges far below any ever offered properly owners of this country for this type of loans. For years, it has been possible to purchase the things that go into the house—furniture, radios, refrigerators, etc., on the installment plan without Ihe necessity of note indorscrs and the like. But this is the first time that the policy of consumer credit has been extended, as n policy, to cover the things that become a part of the real estate improvement. Banks all over the country arc co- jpcrating in this movement to re tore prosperity by revivifying th Backward construction and hcav goods industries. They are grantin loans for periods up to three years with payments as low as $10 a montl and the combined cost of interest, fi nance and carrying charges, etc., i not more than $5 per $100 of the orig inal loan in any instance.

Calling for "reform and revision o: our older regulatory laws in banking, commodity and stock markets, transportation, utilities and natural resource industries;, which reforms the former president believes are "absolutely necessary," he says that "so long as these revisions conform to the conditions of liberty there can be no difference of opinion except as to method. But we must remember that reform is a hard horse to ride in the blinding storm of World-win- liquidations." THE NEWS REVIEW (Continued from Page One) iard:;' hair gray. One is reminded of this somehow, by the extreme precautions that had to be taken when the federal government began to move $2,000,000,01)1) in ^old from the San Francisco mint to •' the Denver mint. A small army of po- li«-. federal men and soldiers, were on hand to 'guard it. Two hundred machine guns were ready to shoot down hi-jackers. The morals is unpleasant, but clear. Conditions in the United Stales today are very much like those on (he high seas in the lawless IGlh century. The big man slammed the desk with 'his fist. "You can't do it Huey, you can't do it! I tell you You can go so : iar and no farther. You can't juggle state funds. "The way you want to operate is -unconstitutional. You cna'l violale Ihe laws of the slate and get away with it." What Huey Long said was this: "The hell I can't- I'll have you know that I have been elected by the people of this state, and hint now I'm the con- slilution." Huey Cleans House The door closed behind him. Robert' Ewing had pointed the way out. Louisiana nver saw such a decapitn lion as followed. Trained officials, am trained advisors followed Robert Rob crl Ewing into political oblivion a iar as Louisianan was concerned. "I nm the constilution," said Huey "This also means that I am the bosse and there ain't going to be no othe kind of bosses." Huey P. Long's now crew, careful Ij picked, were men who had never ha( any experience in working on the ok ship of stale. Here is Ihe record: His chief advisor became Seymour Weiss, once shoe salesman, once barber shop manager in the Hotel Roosevelt, later the hotel manager. Long made Seymour Weiss presidene of thl dock board employing thousands o) workers. In. turn Weiss named a man as employer of labor for the dock board who referred every appointment to Huep P. Long. Takes Care of Friends Later the young governor named Abe Shushan president of his levee board. Shushan had sold dry goods and notions on the road for his fathers firm in New Orleans, and on his parent's death had become head of Ihe firm. The levee board employs thousands of workers. For years Robert Maestri had been %-nown in New Orleans as the head of a furniture store, which sold, among others, furnishings to red light re- crts. Maestri was and still is princ jal owner of the Jefferson Park rac rack. Maestri did then and still own much property in (he red light dist rict of New Orleans. Huey P. Lon named Maestri conservation commiss Ins radio programs, his sound truck expeditions and his handbills. Even member of the state payroll is responsible for 10 or more subscriptions He reminds the people continual^ of what he has done, and claims credit for everything good that has hap* poiied in the state since he bounced I'pon the scone .regardless of whether or not he had nnythihg | 0 do with it He has done this so much that m.fny who know heller are almost c-onvin- •ed. For example, he claims all credit or a .refund 'of telephone charges node throughout the state when he vas public service commissioner. In act, the campaign was originated by Lionel Ewing, who made Long. Ew- ng even drew up the procedure. At me lime Long wanled to drop Ihe ght but Ewing insisted that he carry n. Huey Claims Credit Louisiana has some of the finest highways in the south—concrete pikes through miles and miles of country, and fine graveled roads, thousands nnd thousands of miles of them; it has free bridges across waterways where ferries or toll bridges were- several years ago; it has one of- the finest state Universities in Ihe coun- (ry, the greatest sea and land plane airport. Huey P. Long takes the credit lor all. But John M. Parker, who ran for vice-president on the Theodore Bull Moose ticket .developed the highway layout when he was governor, and also (he university plans. It was Governor Parker's plan, however, that the highways and university should be devel- •oped on a pay-as-you-go basis, out of Ihe proceeds of severance taxes on natural resources. The free bridges to the «ast of New Orleans were built out of a special ilax levied upon New Orleans disl- rict, and din't cost the stale a cent. Governor O..H. Simpson signed the contracts and began the work. Yet Long claims the credit. Wants Name on Bridge Across the Mississippi river at New Orleans is now being thrown a 514,000000 railroad and auto bridge, out of funds advanced by the PWA and the railroads. Plans were developed by the public belt railroad system, and Thomas F. Cunningham, president of that organization, before Long had ever heard of the bridge. Yet Long claims the credit and has even ordered that it be known as the Huey P. Long bridge. When Long came into power as governor, he remembered lago's cogent ad/ice: "Put money in thy purse." To lidd power and build up a machine riemust have the siews of war. So he began to lay plans immediately for inmense bond issues. He junked the pay-as-you-go idea of Parker. Louisiana has since issued about a lundred million dollars worth of jonds, and the parishes, controlled by 'joftg through courthouse cliques, have lilcd that much more upon taxpay- In the small city of Bogalusa, Long's •Jilghwny fleparfmont laid a mile of concrete road 22 feet wide through the main street. The people of Bo- fiaJusn liked it so well that the :town council voted to double the width, "hey laid 22 feel of concrete, same specifications and thickness alongside the- Long stretch—one mile—and it cost Bogalusa only $11,000. : These bond issues entrenched Long in power, nnd were the means by which he developed the most amazing; political machine Louisiana ever saw, and one of the strongesl 4n the United Stales. ; When ho was governor the logisla- tut-o impeached him . He would have, been booted out had it hot been for! ir> senators who signed the famous 1 round-robin declaring that, ho matter j what the evidence they . would nol] vole.against Long. 1 Every one of iho.se 15 has been ro- w.irded personally or through some iiember of his family since. John B. Fournet, speaker of the House, then, who manipulated the voting machine, ind so preovnted a vote, is today the Meutenant governor of Louisiana. Long runs every department of the fate, lie is as insistent on the control )f details as of larger operations, and iambs holders of the smallest jobs as well as department heads. Louisiana, under him now, is a one-man show. Brooks No Rivals Long his so picked his men and rganized his machine that no one can In-eaten his supremacy. He does not. hoose men of that calibre. He must e sun, moon and stars in his political I rmament. and his appoinlees only. 1 •Ihe asleroids wandering around. Yet this man has lost every voting place in which he lived. Winn parish, where he was born and reared, voted arainst .hitn; Shreveport, where he made his home for years, went against him; Baton Rouge, which he enriched during his governorship with tremendous construclion, and in other ways, doesn't give him enough votes to sweeten his coffee. When he came to live in New Orleans he had himself appointed precinct captain ,yet lost the precinct and the ward in the last election. If ho -wins in the New Orleans election of September 11, there is no telling to what ends he may go. If he loses it. will be a hard beating. Win or lose, he still is a force to -eacon; with and fear, far though he has been -down many times, -he lias yet to be counted out.

The man he selected was O. K. Allen who was later picked by Long to be rovernor of Louisiana. :' And so, in every department, from chief cook to bottle washer, Long licked men who had never had and jrcvious experience in statecraft, but vho were subservient to him. For several years he has been run- ing his own newspaper. It has no dvertising—except Huey Long aclver- ising. Ho smashes into man after man, ':sue after issue in huge headlines. The articles in his paper are as full f errors as a colander is of holes, ut when indignant persons deny his latements, he blandly repeats. His icory is thai if you say it often en- ugh, lo.ud enough, and in large en- UHh type, the people will believe. All At State Expense He also lathers the stale from lime : 3 time with handbills.

The slate and its employes pay foi The highways built by Long cost wo or three times as much as Long said they would when he was barnstorming the slates for votes to authorize the bond issues. The average cost was $25,000 n mile. Long had said the concrete highways could be laid for $8000 to 10,000 a mile.
