John T.FIynn Says: Sees Inevitability Crackup as One Great Certainty of German Political Economy. By JOHN T. FLYNN NEA Service Staff Correspondent NEW YORK—One of'live questions most often asked about Germany is, Mow long can the Nazi regime last?" It is n question, of course, which has two aspects—economic and political. First, the economic. Economists have Blizzards Strike East; "Low" of 14 Reported for Hope Season's Coldest Here Recorded Saturday; 15 Sunday; 20 Monday HUNTERS TRAPPED 100 Are Marooned'by Big- Snow in Northern Woods Over Week-End By the Associated Press Clear weather but cold settled over the Eastern half of the country Monday in the wake of a two-blizzard preview of the HI38 edition of winter. Sub-freezing tempearaturcs were general as for south as Georgia, and us far west as Knnsny City. The Northeastern stales braced themselves for another storm whirling up the Central Atlantic region.

Without an adequate gold reserve, with foreign trade ruthlessly cut, with capital investments drying up, how does she manage to operate? The answer is reasonably plain. In 1933 Germany found herself in much Ihc stfm'c position as we found ourselves. Hitler came into power about the time Roosevelt did. Both adopted the plan of raising funds by heavy borrowings. In six years Roosevelt borrowed nearly 20 billion dollars; Hitler borrowed 10 billion. This latter figure is n minimum estimate. It may be as high as 12'A billion. This is an enormous figure for Germany—proportionately greater than the United Stales. Of course this has supplied and continues to supply a continuous flow of fresh funds into the economic system. But Hitler and' Roosevelt adoptee very different financial plans from this point on. Hitler pegged both prices anc wages at the point at which he fount them in 1933 Roosevelt announced his intention of doing everything in his power to raise both prices and wages Tax, Tax, Tax Then Hitler proceeded to tax. He taxed everybody, from the lowest workman to the richest capitalist. He literally drained everyone. Thus, when Roosevelt borrowed n billion and spent it, it went into private hands and rc'm'ained there. When he wanted to spend more money he had to borrow another billion. When Hitler borrowed a billion it went into private hands and there he immediately recaptured it by means o£ drastic taxation so that he got it back and had it to spend again. We need pursvie the comparison no further Hitler thus kept the spending power of the people at the lowest point by keeping wages down, but he spread the income over a larger number of people Soon there were no unemployed because all had work—work in the armament plants supported by this enormous borrowing and taxation But these people have little to spend even out of their low wages and high profits, because the government withdraws it all from them by taxes All this^ requires an iYn'mense amount of regulation ot the minutest variety. But one effect of this is slowly to Star VOLUME 40—NUMBER 39 WEATHER. Arkansas — Fair, slightly warme v Monday night and Tuesday; freezing Monday night. HOPE, ARKANSAS, MONO AY, .NOVEMBER 28,1938 .
