Kennedy Son 9-11-13 Bristol Street PHONE 36 Canandaigua You and Your Nation's Affairs PRESIDENT FIGHTS TO CONTROL OUR MONEY By WALTER E. SPARK Professor of Economics, New York VniTcnlty When the United States Senate voted 47 to 31 to end the President'! power further to devalue the dollar and the purchases by the Treasury of useless foreign silver, certain Senators w e r e reported to have made c o m p r o m i s e s with others as the price of obtaining^he necessary support for these altogether a d m i r able things. A» a consequence, the subsidy to domestic silver producers was ; not only con- ·" tinued but increased; but even this had the virtue of being done by Congress rather than being left to -th*.'discretion of the Treasury. Altogether, the Senate made prog- j ress and is to be commended for its action, even though, at this writing, the situation in Congress with regard i to all of the President's monetary ·; powers is confused and it is impos- | sible to predict what will be the out' come. ! Regardless of the outcome, how. ever, great interest must attach to ' the President's denouncement of the ' Senate's ban on his power to de; value the dollar further. The de: nouncement, in its essentials, em: ploys the tactics of the demagogue, · It appeals to the emotions, prejudices, and fears of the people, and reveals ' the length to which the Administra- jtion is willing to go in an effort to retain dictatorial powers over our monetary standard. There is hardly a major contention of the President j that cannot be answered in a devastating manner by reference to facts. The President appeals to the emotions, prejudices and fears of people by asserting that if he did not have 1 this power over our currency it would revert to Wall Street and to the inter] national speculators. That is not the | situation at all. The issue is whether j the President should continue to have the power delegated to him as an emergency measure, or whether | Congress should take back the power and duty with respect to our money .which is reposed in it by the Con- Istitution and which probably was j unconstitutionally delegated to the '·· President as an emergency newer. So far as I know the President !· no case has willingly relinquished any so-called emergency power delegated to him during the period of renzled legislation in 1933*1934. Hif arguments for desiring to retain control over our monetary standard have shifted from time to time and have been neither consistent nor valid. The President also asserts that to deprive him of power to devalue our doU ar is like tyinf up half our navy ant weakens our national defense. That statement is calculated to frighten :houghtless people, and cannot be effectively defended. It can only mean that the President thinks of our currency as a fighting weapon and that if a foreign currency depreciates our dollar should be depreciated too. In short, he is contending that the weak currency should control the strong! He further Insists that we suffered heavy losses In 1931 because the Administration did not have the power to devalue as England devalued. The fact of the matter is that England dM not devalue in 1931; she merely suspended specie payment*. In the next place, let it not be forgotten that in the political campaign of 1932 Mr. Roosevelt advanced no such argument and vigorously attacked his opponents for suggesting that he might be considering a cheapening of the dollar. The President further contends that speculators made much money out of what he calls their uncontrolled operations in foreign exchange, but he is vague as to who made money out of the situation. He would do well to point out to our people what Americans lost and what foreigners gained when the dollar was devalued, and what Speculators gained as a result of the Administration's silver policies. Fifty - five experienced monetary economists recommended to Congress that it deprive the President of this so-called emergency power over our monetary standard, and that Congress regain the power which th« Constitution reposes in it. There la no reason to suppose that these seasoned monetary economists are wrong and the President right about this matter. Nor are there grounds for assuming that these economists wish to "return our dollar to the supposed control of Wall Street and speculators" or that the sole concern of these economists is not the welfare of this nation. GOOD SPORTSMANSHIP Courtesy when . driving should find expression in a number of ways. Good sportsmanship on ti.e road mattes all drivers fuel better-and quit* often makes them safer, too. In the above is shown Just one of many thoughtful practices w hich mtrk the courteous driver. It's just as easy to stop behind the crosswalk line as to stop out in front of it. And it makes pedestrians traffic easier and safer. Building permits in Toledo, O., for the first six months of 1939 were 50 per cent greater than for the entire year of 1938.
