, THURSDAY, MARCH 10> 1938 I OUR BOARDING HOUSE BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.)' COURIER NfiWV Fireworks Expected In Committee Hearings Over Nomination Of Arnold BV WILLIS TIIOUN'l'ON WASHINGTON, ,M;irch 10. — When Thin-man Wesley Arnold ,-comes before Ihe Senate Judk'.iiiry Committee for coWirmalimi lo siii-- ' crcd Robert, H. Jackson as "head « trust buster." lucre will iirobably be a display of verbal fireworks nncqualed since "The Last. Uay:; of Pompeii." That is because lYole.wur Arnold has written two books which are tha lalk 01' Washington's •streamlined intelligentsia. They or? "The Symbols of Government" and "The Folklore of Capitalism." They present an mconorlastic view of the politics and economics of tile day; on every pnf.c Arnolrt treads heavily on institutions -anrt ideas that- are usually mentioned | only ivith bated breath. His disrespectful and "Imrd- Isoiled" treatment of traditional views on business, law, csiirt:;, mid government, have earned him 'uvo conflict i ne estimates. — One is that he has vviMIrn the most, profound and .suggestive books of the day, "realistic, devastating, constructively crlllcnl," ji Voltaire of 1SO8. Tlie oilier is thai he is a shallow smavt-aleck who has tried lo create a, sensation by simply pooh- poohing everything- that is popularly believed. <!ood or Bad, It's Different But neither those who dislike, nor those who like Professor Ar- Witli Major Hoople l T PUT SMATCH OW owe OF HIS OLD TIES AMD YOU CAW DIP • THIS FEZ IK) MOT WATER AMD SHRIMK .

The folklore of the lime re- members of (lie Senate Connnillcc will ignore tlicm, cither.

They like to test'every proposed course of action against. "complete and rounded system:; of principles." uu those principles. doctrines and Having set .,,„.,. they regard them us "tnc truth.' Anyone who doesn't, believe in them has fallen into error evil. Soon even good results, obtained by principles that vary from the accepted doctrines, arc considered evil.

'Ihis con- liul al the same lime Icchuo- lot'ical progress aiadc bigness ab- scllilely essential to produce cheap goods. So, to satisfy and pay tribute to tlie "symbols" it was necessary to pass an!i-trust, laws and . make gestures nt abolishing trusts, and is but. at the same time never really interfere n'ir.i them al all. Watch Out (or Borah This, Arnold writes, is the history of the iinti-lrnsl laws. "Attempts to,',, reform," he contends, "usually ciijlcd .wi(h an appeal to tlw.-old.-crccd:under whose protecting mantle these institutions hud grown, with tlie organizations per- fcnifled as individuals . . . these attacks "always ended with a ceremony ol atonement., but, few practical rc:ulU!" Observers, arc chuckling at, ihe possible effect on Senator Borah of one of Aniold's cracks. Borah is a member of the Judiciary Com- niiitec which will consider Arnold's nomination. ' "Men like Senator Borah," Arnold wrole, "founded political car- New Alclhiids, Same Itcsults Following these crusades.

They went on to ^ct, (he i:nmc results by tactics rcyard- cd as hit'.ily moral oil the part of individuals, and hence permissible '.o trusts. V According to Arnold lliesc arc: !.

The result, however, is the same, Arnold believes. Denies Fascist. Leaning;* Arnold has lieu assailed uy some reviewers us a Fiiscfsi lieciuisc he says "Hie political party is alwuy, (lie real sovernment." This lip denies, insisting Dial, lie has merely pointed out, (hut hi 1 some respects Fascist procedure is more frank- and open in Ms uso of political techniques, whiclr all countries use but 'do not like 10 admit. This, ,Miy in's critics. Is mere unprincipled Jvrachiavelliairism. "The of the Individualistic ideal to justify dioiatorial business instilullons is one of the Bi'Kilesl obstacles to considcrins believe Unit this folklore is on the way out." ' Avnold was born at Lnvamlu, Wyo:. '17, years ago. He .studied, lit Princeton and 1 Harvard (law) and lilught. at Wyoming, West, Virginia and Yale universities. He pmc- ticc;l low in Chicago and Luramle. He wiifi a first lieutenant of field | ai'tllleiy in Prance (luring the World War. He was Miecinl counsel for the government, in the AAA consli- tnllcnalily suils of isaa. and lias been a k'unl adi'iscr to ilin gov crnoi'-gcneriil of' the Philippines and' a trial examiner for (lie SEC. He once served as mayor of Lnrn 1 - mic and as u member of the Wyoming House of Representative!He is a Phi Beta Kappa, a Demo cral. and an Episcopalian. But how much g-jod all this conservative background will do him whin Ihe Senate committee members get luCi liis inconoclastic books, remains to be seen. (-'AHllTHKliSVlLLIi. Mo.. Mac. 10 -Chiulcs W.
