Hopkins, the iircscnl period of economic evolution is gointj to end in a system of 't per cent riipi- Icilism. By this Mi : . Hopkins means thai (lie return on invested funds will proceed at « iiuicli slower rate than wi; have: been used to iu the past. Capital's share of the profits in industrial enterprise is goiiiK to be smaller, in otiier words; the day of fortunes built on a shoestring will bo over, and money invested in a going company will bring in only a little more than it brings now in a savings account. The prediction sounds fairly mild, until you begin to look into il a bit. Then you .discover thai it is a forecast. of almost revolutionary change. * » -f The old axiom—never' literally true, hut close enough to it for practical purposes—has been that uniting your money in common stodcK^..speculation, while, in bonds is investment. Buy bonds, and you get a sure re- .lurn, limited to a certain figure; buy stocks, and you run the risk of getting no return at all—but, as compensation for this risk, you may make-a profit •many times higher than any bond issuu could bring you. Under avsj;s_teuv,.o,r. l 'l per cent capitalism, the ..stockholder, would he right where the bondholder is today. If he put.?lOO,000:into a company, he would be satisfied to take oul flOOO a year in profits; he would not be expecting—as lias been the case in the past—that his ?100,000 would be worth a million in a few years, if things broke right .for him. • » • Those who have suspected the New Deal of a radical tinge will hardly bo reassured by Air. Hopkins' remark. This suggestion IS radical, beyond iiuesfiun. It calls for a complete change in our economic system. It took more than the lure of <l per cent to build up this country's great . industries; il look the prospect of .tin- limited profits, such as those which made multi-millionaires oul of, poor boys like Rockefeller and Carnegie. Nevertheless, there have been times in the last few years when any busi- ness man would have been perfectly .satisfied wilh^l ixjr cent—it' he could gel it. A low proflt is better than no profit at.nil. A regime in which capitalism was held to a '! per cent return might he acceptable, if capital could be assured that it would actually get the 4 per cent. A Diplomatic Problem The high naval officer whose duly il is to keep his country's fleet in .shape to meet any emergency has a rather lough row to hoe, when you stop lo think about it. Us toughness is revealed, indirectly, by dispatches from Tokio revealing I bat Japanese newspapers are all in a lather because the United Slates fleet is to hold it.s 1935 maneuvers in the vicinity of Hawaii. iimneiivers, .say the Japanese, can be nothing else than preparation for war with .Japan. Thus Japanese fears' and suspicions are heightened once more, and the harassed American naval authorities seem lo be al fault. Hut what is a poor strategist to'do? He lias to look ahead to possible war; he has to train his staff in the program that must be followed if some specific nation is the foe. If he doesn't, he isn't doing his job properly. II, is really much simpler for the I'Vcndi. When they hold maneuvers, I hey make no bonds about the fact (hat they are anticipating war with Germany. : Other nations can't foe so blunt. They must prepare for trouble—hut they must pretend that they are going lo light, an entirely imaginary foe. The NRA's Future Tlu> I']>:Mch Ins no detailed formula for (lie reorganization o( the NHA.

Prevention of nntny unsocial practices can be Accomplished through the unit-trust laws, and in some cases prevention is properly the function of the states and not of the Federal Government. 5. There should be no "cracking down" upon business; no compulsion upon business to enter into schemes of regimentation. Formation of codes by business groups should be on a wholly voluntary basis. No cITorl should be made to revive the licensing section of the Recovery Act which lapsed after Ihe first of the year. —St. Louis Post-Dispatch.
