Both were actually laking measures to prolong the depression. Tlic latest figure to achieve prominence in Washington is Mr. John W. Hanes, Wall Street broker, of thc SEC. He has a plan to put the government in thc busi- nc-ss of lending money to merchants and manufacturers to enable them to hold their excessive inventories up. Seemingly tlie President likes j Mr. Hnnes so much that he has made him assistant-secretary of tlie Treasury. At the end of so many years of failure of the policy I of saving <iebts and prices, there is something tragic about this. j Upon winning the contest Mr. Mashburn received a week's engagement at t'.ie Roxy theater in New York city and an eight weeks tour of cities and towns with one of the Major Howes' unit. Asked why he did not continue his radio work, he replied" I happen to be in love with my wife and she did not relish thc idea of my going here and there, as is so necessary for that type of work. She hat! rather I stay in one place in order to keep prices | - so here I am." The singer declares he has never studied any kind of music. He plays his own accompaniment on the guitar and has been singing and playing publicly for (he past seven years. His program is versatile in that he sinys hill-billy, popular, sacred and classical numbers with equal ability. Ho does not confine his talents the radio but also makes his own recordings and will begin The first thing, therefore, in any plan of recovery is for the government to withdraw at once and j 0 completely from all schemes lo keep alive private debts of nil forts — bonds, stocks, mortgages. They should be allowed lo go. Some will be hurt. Many will actually be helped by it. Bllt the opposite policy is to hurt the whole nation.' The second thing is to take the government instantly out of every scheme for keeping prices up. And at the same time thc government itself .should use every instrumentality it has to proiiibit private groups, combinations, trade associations from entering agreements to hold up prices or to limit production, directly or indirectly. This means things iike the Guftey Bituminous Coal Commission should be scrapped, thc Sherman anti-trust law and other Irust laws like the Clayton Act should be vigorously and impartially enforced. The same thing should be applied to agricultural prices. Tlie Commodity Surplus Corporation should be demobilized and all tit- tempt.s at pegging farm prices should, be ended. The farm problem can be attacked from a different angle. On the question of exhaustion of investment opportunities, there is nothing the government can do about that. That is a problem strictly .», private business. It is supposed to create those opportunities, if it dots not. then certain other adjustments will be necessary later. * * * Nothing could be more falal than uncertainty in money policy. No tnnn can make more than a guess now whether we are going to have deflation or Inflation. We drift and all uncertainty arises out of that. Thc government can remove this uncertainty. H can definitely decide upon a policy of inflation or deflation. It can announce it and announce its intention to adhere to (hat policy. It is not so important • which policy it pursues as to have Ihe policy -settled on, adopted nnd ended.
