Olson. Confidence that the pardon would be "^TJited was expressed by Attorney George T. DavLi, who described the courts' failure to act as "the great trrtgedy of the Mooney case." ', Davis formally notified Matthew Bl&dy, district attorney, of Mooney's intention to swk a pardon from his conviction as San Francisco's 1916 Preparedness Day bomber.

Moody Replies (Continued Jrom Page One) Communism, and relieves us oC our freedom of operation. I will hereby suggest that if a mere principle is to deprive us of our daily bread, we pay tin enormous price for what he construes freedom. What the people want today is results, not principles. It sometimes becomes necessary in case of emergency to adopt methods that seem communistic, and to continue them until the emergency is removed. He say' the A.AA was overruled by the Supreme Court as unconstitutional, and raps Roosevelt and Wallace as though they' had committed an unpardonable crimej by criticising it. In the first place i was overruled by a bias-minded bunch of judges Who regarded anything tha sounded like recovery as too Demo-| cratic; and in the second place, it is m u opinion that these judges should noj only be subject to criticism but i case they become an impediment I national progress they should be im peached and removed from office, our state officers are removed. The case in question is a fair ex ample. Who is responsible for ou present predicaments. The answer echoes: The Supremi Court. We were well on our way to recovj ery with 12 cent cotton and debts be ing rapidly eliminated when the Su preme Court pulled the bridle off killing the AAA, thus piling up 1, million bale.s of cotton in 1937 on toj of the already heavy surplus, t These judges are only human, an carry only the power that is veste< in them by their government. ' No. Mr. Johnson, we were not to! that foreign governments would nc buy our cotton, we were only urge to produce enough for domestic coi sumption, and reduce our supply fi foreign consumption to the propo. lion of foreign demand. We can d pend on a very limited demand I ioreign consumption for years j come, unless we can produce it fo: throe cents. Foreign countries und • a poorer standard of living can a will, but not America. ; Mr. Johnson asks how we can | lieve in a program of reduction order to receive plenty? I wou | counter by asking how we can rai ; cotton \yf ci-n neither eat or sel : Our local buyers have cotton on ha I they can not sell at any price; it I doubtlul if another bumper would sell for the cost of ginning, speculator will not invest in a pr duct-they cannot sell. The AAA Is not a cure all, it Is merely an antidftte to assist In poisenlng the octlput that Is devouring the economic life of our natio.n. 'So: now, Brother Farmer when we go to the polls Saturday, remember we are Voting for a bill that was tried and found good, and that we are drifting out to sea during a'tempest, and that the administration is extending to us a life line, and that the watch word is Save Your Selves lest we all Iwrish, M, H.
