The adininish-ation has liuon denounced for leading us away from Jefferson's ideal; il has been praised for leading us toward il. 'And tlie best thing the ordinary voter can do is to make up his mind right now that all this is one of the grandest shain battles that ever began a political campaign. There li not the slightest ehancu that the present admini.stration will .Icli'crsoim.e the country; there is not the slightest chance that its opponents will do so. Neither side lias either the power or the wish to make Jell'er- EOII'S great dream come true. For Jefferson dreamed of an America which, in almost every essential, was I he exact opposite of Hie America we have today. Jlis America would have been predominantly agricultural; ours is predominantly industrial: Jlis would have had few cities and •final! ones; ours lias many eities and large ones. He fell that democracy would IU)Ur-' ; ish only as long as the overwhelming majority of Americans lived on small .-'; fan-tip, . which they .owned outright ;');',? (in 'utltinliwlljcy^raised Jinjl, fabri-' caled nearly alP'the/food .and 'cloth-'.,; ing they needed; and America has not ••. remotely .resembled that concept since ' the j>re-Civit War era. We have, instead, an enormous working, class population and an incalculably immense network of linance and industry—the two things which Jell'er- son would have none, of at any price. 'Most' of our farmers cither are in debt to the bankers or hold their farms i a : ; tenants—two .more things which Jefferson held fatal to his vision of democracy. But the important point is not so 'much the fact thai we are in almost every respect the direct opposite of Jefferson's dream, as the fact that it would he almost impossible for us to get back to that dream. To do so we would have to remake our agriculture, to begin with, from tho ground up; abolish debt, abolish tenancy, abolish the great one-crop farms of the corn and wheat and cotton hells, mid restore antique liand- crafls, such as weaving, wood-working, dyeing, and so on, to each farmhouse. We would have lo abolish our great corporations, give up our mass-production industries, reduce our great cities lo a fraction of their si/c, abolish our land's, and whittle our banks and exchanges down lo pocket i-i/e. And if, at this point, you begin to wonder just how we can ever put through any such program, the answer is, bluntly: wo can't. We can't do it, and it is safe to nay that no responsible parly leader in or onl of Washington thinks that we can. The light over JcU'erson's democracy is, in other words, a great sham battle. Wo might as well forget about it and devote ourselves lo the real issues of the campaign. SIDE GLANCES By Georgp Clark FOLLYandpAREWELL // Good Outlook It h always interesting au:l quite often inspiring to look at the world today through the eyes of one who has lived hero a long time, seen much, and formed a few solid conclusions. At 70, Bishop William 'I'. Manning olfers just such an opportunity. Interviewed on his recent birthday, Hie eminent churchman held out a cheerful view, of the future. "l)e;pite the uncertainty ami confusion which, exist," he declared, "I would say that during my lifetime I have discei'imd a growth among people generally in social consciousness . . . We may not agree with all the measures to.ward this end which have been adopted; nevertheless, the general spirit of the limes is that men can no longer go along their own ways unmindful of flic condition of others." In the light of human history, that, indeed is a step forward for humanity. ''"'" Politics Excluded. At a lime when big business and (he Roosevelt administration sharply disagree on. many issues,-it is sigijilic- • mil that- the president has called iir'"' iatusLrial leaders for advice. These Titans of I'mance, so Lo speak, are supposed to aid the chief executive in formulating plans to speed up certain industries, such as railroading and housing. This is as it should be. The unemployment problem is far beyond pol: ilics. Either millions must be fed on ^government doles, or industry must ' absorb them. There is no alternative. .Therefore, it is important lhal big business, regardless of what if thinks, should lake a hand in Washington. What jbijr business ^a^s lo Mil Roosevelt and how it votes next November are two entirely (different considerations.
