Nehemiah was a Jew born in exile wh ohac! never seen Jerusalem. He occupied a place of prominence at the court of Babylon where he was cupbearer to King Artaxerxes. He tells, in the book of the Bible which bears his name, how, when he had brought wine to the king .and was saddened by reports of the ill fortune of those who had gone to rebuild Jerusalem, the king inquired concerning his sadness. The result was that King Artaxerxes gave Neherniah authority to go to j Jerusalem and take charge of things as governor. The effect, apparently, was immediate, and "it came to pass" became symbolic of Nehemiah and his achievement. Apparently he brought few, if any, associates to Jerusalem, but he inspired those who were already there, and who were discouraged and beaten in their task, with a new spirit and hope. In civil, military, and administrative leadership he became what Ezra was to the people in a spiritual way. He organized the people against their enemies, dividing them into those who bore arms and defended, while the other half built the broken walls of the city. It is a striking picture of how even those who built performed their work with their swords belted to them, ready for immediate action. Nehemiah's enemies, when they found they could not break down his defensive and constructive measures, sought to entrap him by strategy. They desired him to come outside of the city for conference; but ho sensed their purpose and refused to come clown from his task of building. When his enemies corrupted the professed prophets, who warned him of danger to his life and urged him to a conference in the temple where his enemies were evidently preparing to take him, Nehemiah showed himself as much above fear as he was above :my other allurement. He stands as a noble figure of his- thc tory, a man with all the idealism and earnestness of his race in mind anc heart, incorruptible, firm in will unselfish and devoted to the common weal. When complaint arose that stronger and wealthier among thf- Jews were exploiting their fellows •obbing them of their lands through mortgage loans and other devices Nehemiah acted with decisiveness, but with a purpose, also, to lead men to ight action through sound principles ather than by drastic and dictatorial lethods. Such selfish exploitation under his nfluence became a disgrace, and the ew society in the new Jerusalem •as marked by an. environment and tmosphere which rebuked the mean- ess and selfishness of men The example of, Nehemiah'is worthy t careful study in the life of present- ay neds and problems. A few Nehe- niahs in our modern American life light accomplish equal miracles of re- >nstruction and redemption, for it is /ortli while to note the Nehemiah ucceeded in his task. His work illustrates what can be one by u determined people well or aimed and guided, and brought into elulionsluDs of mutual defense and nilcd action.

Proposition Rumored NEW YORK.-(;p)-The New York Journal says Friday that Governor Harold G. Hoffman made his midnight visit to Bruno Richard Hauptmann's death-cell with the hope of obtaining a confesison from the convicted kidnaper-slayer of the Lindbergh baby. The New Jersey governor, the Journal says, gave Hauptmann a week to consider an offer of $10,000 and life imprisonment for a complete confession, then confronted the condemned man in the Trenton death-rhouse only to hear Hauptmann plead again: "I am innocent." cent, are voted "no" in answcd to the question: "Do you now approve the acts and policies of the Roosevelt 'New Deal' to date?" Last week's percentage for the New Deal was computed as 44.11 which indicates a fractional gain for the Administration's policy in the presenl tabulation. Initial returns are reported this week from California, Massachusetts and South Dakota, which are voting against the New Deal, and Kentucky, Tennessee and Virginia, which show najorities in favor of the Roosevelt nets and policies. The first scattered returns from Massachusetts register nearly a 4 to 1 vote against the New Deal, the heaves t negative vote of any of the eigh- ccn states reported.

Tennessee ranks next with better than a 3 to 2 majority for the administration's policies. The current balloting shows nine of the twelve states reported in last week's tabulation with a fractional to fair gain m their respective voting against the New Deal. The final returns for the entire country in a similar poll which The Literary Digest conducted in the spring of 1934 indicated that more than 3 out of every 5 voters favored the New Deal then. The Governor's Visit NEW YORK-(/P)-Gov. Harold G. Hoffman of New Jersey, a member of the "Court of Mercy" that may be Bruno Richard' Hsuptmann's last hope, disclosed Thursday that he had interviewed the condemned Lindbergh baby kidnaper in the Trenton (N. J.) death house. Prison attaches said it was the first time in their recollection that the state's executive had visited a condemned prisoner. The inerview, which took place one night early in October, was carried cut in such secrecy that only Warden Mark O. Kimberling and the two principals knew of it. The warden said he stood at a distance and did not hear the conversation which lasted more than an hour. Governor Hoffman also disclosed that he had urged the seven other members of the Court of Pardons to call on Hauptmann and "learn his side of the case at first hand." William S. Conklin, the governor's press aide, said: "The governor pointed out that the Court of Pardons is a court of mercy, and he believes that every member of the court should hear Hauptmann's story first-hand at the prison because he cannot ;be brought before the court.' 1 The Court of Pardons would be Hauptmann's last resort if his appeal is rejected by the United States Supreme Court. •Beyond saying that Hauptman had "pleaded his complete innocence," Governor Hoffman declined to divulge details. He denied he was conducting a private investigation of the case. "Some people have been working in the matter," he said, "but I am not at liberty to discuss it." It became known, however, that Ellis Parker, chief of Burlington coun- .y (N. J.) detectives, has been continuing his investigation and has kept the governor posted on new developments.
