Politics Musi Reform For New economics If present tendencies continue, the whole face of American politics is likely to be changed almost beyond recognition. This change is not .simply a matter of a new alignment of the two national parlies. It will be concerned, rather, with the mechanic.-' of government, especially of local government. Our conception of the duty which an officeholder owes to the public, as contrasted with his duty, to liis party, may at last be' brought tip to date. You can :get an understanding of what the change may be like by considering a proposal recently advanced for ii series of state factories in North Dakota. . This scheme hus been projwnnded by Senator Lynn Frazier, Republican, and A. C. Townley, organizer of the Nonpartisan League. Under it, the North Dakota Industrial Commission has asked the PWA for a loan of $-1.000,000 to finance a chain of stale factories—75 of them, in all—to make woolen cloth, clothing, shoes, linseed oil, flour and so on, * * * The idea is that these factories would provide work for the state's unemployed, help .supplement the income of farmers, and turn the stale's raw materials into manufactured articles. Leave, tside, for the moment, (he t]uestion of whether such an experiment in Socialism is wise, ami consider what pressure the scheme would put on the traditional, politics-ridden government of the average American stale. * * * It is reported at Washington, for instance, that PWA oll'icials will not consider making the loan unless thev arc convinced that there will be clfi- cient and rigidly honest ailministralion within the state. And it also is recalled that oll'icials of the CM'A recently ousted Gov. William hanger of .North Dakota as slate C\VA administrator because of alleged !»litical collections from CWA workers. A .stunt of this kind, in other words, simply would j)ot work at all the state government were run with far more sense of public responsibility, and far less thought for political BLYTHEVILLE, (ARK.)' COURIER NEWS OUT OUR WAY ii(lvan(;igi>, Ihitii wu liml nowadays in the ordinary slulu govuniinent. And if such proposals tiro to become part of our scheme of tilings—as, according to present indications, they may—it bucomo.s vitally necessary for us to make- our sy.-itum of iiolitics ready for Ilium. Slill Menacing in dodiiriiiK that the iiwtorwurltl today has more; men nmli*r nniis than tile United Sditu.s army and navy combined, Attorney Genera! CuinmiiiR's gives us H .slrikiiijf illustration of the extent of the menace presented by our inulrofHililun #niiff.s. A fair-mimled observer probably would juiiiiil lli;it the Nilii.-iliuii todiiy is lieiter than it was, say, live years ago, wlien Al Cajjone w.'i.s in his heyday and it was almost an unheard-of think' for a prominent gangster actually to be sent to prison. Nevevtiide.-s, ihc cliallen^e lo oi'- «ani/.wl society which gangland presents has by no means been met fully. The underworld still supports a larger armed force than tlio federal government JUcir supports. That simple .statement shows graphically how much remains tu he done. Gear Qj Spoils The United States Senate acted sun- sihly in decreeing thai the Home Owners Loan Corporation—the principal of. loans will be guaranteed |,y the government, under legislation about to bo pas.sccl—be divorced from polities. This corporation has a big job to do, and the one important thing about it is that i( do the job well—that il help to safeguard the homes of people who INHU lost their savings and (heir jobs. In simple decency, an organization of (his, kind must not he a hap py hunting ground for spoilsmen. More imiwrtfliil thing..; than a congressman's ability to nan,! nut jobs to his constituent ai'u at slake. And it is rather astounding, incidentally, to nolo that the Senate ruled out |K)litics by the margin of just, one Vole. Tin; narrowness of that margin rclkcts no particular credit on tlm Senate.
