Difficulties The trouble with President Roosevelt, according to Gene Howe, Anwillo's tactless Texan, is that while lie "is perfectly familiar with the ambitions and the weaknesses and the greed of our leader.- in business and finance," he lacks a comparable understanding of the defects of (lie "forgotten man". There is probably something in that. The president was born and reared among possessors of inherited wealth, big business men, and political leaders. - They can't fool him. But he is hnv- — ing to learn that the common man has '- many of the shortcomings of the rich -T ami powerful, and some of his own besides. . The little fellow,-by and large, is no more honest and no more altruistic or unselfishly patriotic than the captain of industry or liiiance. On lop of that he is often ignorant and therefore full of ridiculous suspicions and prejudices which make him incapable of effective co-oi>eratioii in tfforts for . his own advancement. • The "new deal," in its more idealistic phase*, is running into snags, ^ largely because, a lot of its intended " beneficiaries are willing to accept it as . -a free ride rather than as an opportunity to improve their standards of • life. The idea is spreading, even among those who ought to know better, that the function of government is to serve as a wet nurse to every victim .of economic distress, -great or. small. The depression made necessary govep- •; mcpt aid to business rfncTto Irid'lvidfinls. , It stil! is necessary. But it''doesn't solve the problem. Instead, by weakening initiative and self-reliance, it tends to make it worse. All of this complicates the difficulties the president and his advisors face. The most effective co-operation most of us can give them is to accept their efforts with open minds, suppress impatience when progress at times seems slow, and above all remember that there is no prospect of repeal by the new deal of the law of life that man must work. The Digest Poll The Ljterary Uigcst lias tabulated returns from 12 status in its New Deal poll. The results show 240,424 votes in support of the Roosevelt policies and 165,060 in opposition. Ten of the twelve state* vote their endorsement of Roosevelt, while two, Maine and Vermont, by very narrow margins are on record iu opposition. The Digest's analysis of the vote shows that Roosevelt's record as president lias won him more supiwrters than it hits lost him. Of tlie '105,484 ballots tabulated in the Digest's iw!!, only 196,383 were cast by persons who voted (or Roosevelt in 1!KJ2. Ballots cast by supporters of Herbert Hoover in 1032 to the number of 181,461 are included in the tabulation, and of these 63,842 indicate they arc now for Roosevelt. The results of the |H>II are even more striking when it is considered that no one of the twelve states from which ballots have thus far been tabulated is west of the Mississippi or south of the Mason-Dixon line. They arc industrial states and are normally Republican in national elections. The Digest poll, while unofficial, nuty be Accepted as n reliable index to public sentiment. It should encourage the president to drive uhead with his program, and it should serve as a warning to congressmen that sabotage of the new deal will not prove good |>ol- itics. SIDE GLANCES < By George Clark CHURCH EXCUSES B? Ge* W.
