Lindbergh Solution a Moral Victory Most Americans my.loublcdly fuel • that the best news of the fall is llio news that a break has finally conic in the Lindbergh kidnaping. This is th({ one crime above all others which the American pcoj>lo want to see avenged. Tht$ combinn- hon of its singular brutality and its tragic effect on the nation's most , popular hero has luul an emotional effect on .the nation as a whole unlike that of any other case in modem times. And yet the emotional satisfaction we get out of the .solution'' is, iifler all, the leait important part of it. Far more weighty is the fact that it. restores to us a measure 'of our national self-respect. Considered from nil angles, the Lintk bergh kidnaping was about the sevcr- ! est indictment of modern American I .civilization ever made. • •r\r:-*'' r "^.-., ;,.,,-,, Here wits a young-man of trumiMid- ous personal popularity; a man whom everyone in the country knew mid liked-and wished well, a man of wealth and position, who had founded a family and taken a home in, the country to get u'ltttle of 'tiiiit^i'ivacy'aiid-tuippi- ness that every, rnari wJinls. , Out of a clear sky, then, this man was struck by the most despicable of all crimes—the one crime that can be 'common only when society is helpless in the face of lawlessness. The crime was committee) and' it went unpunished.' The best-loved man in the nation had found that Ibis was not ,1 safe country in which to rear a child. Our grief and anger wore impotent, 'lise thing could not have 'happened in England, or Prance, or Germany; it was typically, terribly American. * * * t Now, at last, tomes retribution; and the fact is of tremendous importance, aside from the way it satisfies our desire to see a foul wrong avenged. It shows that we have, after all, the kind of social organization which can do the hardest kind of protective work —getting on a cold trail, following a hundred worthless leads, keeping eternally^vigilant, never forgetting or going OUT OUR Is sleep, striking finally and effectively after a lapse of years. In other words, we are not quite as disorganized as we were a few years ago. Tho Lindbergh case was our national low-water mark. Since then we have somehow managed to lake a brace. We are not, any longer, the country in which the worst of till crimes can be committed with impunity. —lirucc Cation. The Public Is First It is almost impossible to lay down any one general rule "to cover all strikes. But in general it is true that the interest of the public ought to be paramount to the interests of both employers and workers; and once in a while a case comes up in which this is made exceedingly clear. The electric power concern which .supplies DCS Moines and adjacent towns with light was shut down by a strike recently. .For one night no h'ghls were on. Hospitals had to care for patients by candle light. And so Gov. Clyde I.,. Herring got busy. Calling representatives of strikers and employers before him, he announced bluntly that the public was not going to put up with another night like that one. "We're going to have clec- fric service tonight if we have fo take over the plant and run it ourselves," he said. "We can do il, and we will." Uesult? Twenty minutes later the strike was settled. Bacfc to Congress It' (he higher courts uphold the federal judge in Baltimore who ruled the Frazier-Lemke farm mortgage moratorium .act unconstitutional, the coming 'Congress is npt to'feel a sharp repercussion from the farm belt. Whatever may be siiid about either the wisdom or the workability of this act, it was a measure passed in response to insistent demands from the farm belt—demands arising from Hie ten-ilic pressure which deflationary processes had put upon farm debtors. The act itself may be knocked out by the court ruling—but the pressure of thss debt load remains, and if it cannot be eased in this way, some other way .will have to be found. And you may depend upon it that the farm licit will let Congress know about it in no uncertain terms. tt Is quite clenr Itinl In my case the Treasury Is not so much Interested In the collection of revenue as In attempting to discredit me. —An- drc\v Melton, former secretary of the treasury. * i * * Just saying that little word "yes" to n simple question hns completely changed my world. —Princess Marina of Greece, engaged to Prince George of England. * » * I don't know.
