The Rage At Washington When all the big guns o£ the Administration at Washington have done Bring at the "60 families" and "big business" how much farther along the road to recovery will the country be? Demagogy never won a battle that helped any one. The astounding campaign entered upon by the President and his associate's can only create division o£ the American people into hostile camps, destroy their unity In the face of a crisis and retard the solution of the the last few days, made the greatest mistake of Its career since coming Into power. The. good works It undoubtedly did arc being deeply burled by Messrs. Jackson and Ickes. The repercussions to Its rage will result In grave injury to the public faith and confidence in, the Administration and make Fascists chuckle. Instead of co-operation there will be hatred and disunity everywhere. The "fight" of a political administration against business threatens calamity to 126,000,000 Americans. The President should halt it forthwith and proceed in an orderly manner against individuals or business where there is a case. Meanwh'le, he should call in the bus'ncss men who are "pure" according to the notion ot the Administration and unite them with the common foe of depression, If the lalter term be preferred.—Scranton Times. Editor's Note: The Scranton Times is Pennsylvania's oldest and most consistent Democratic newspaper. Bubble Blowers economic 'difficulties that them. plaguf The vehement declaration of Mr. Ickes recently that "00 families" threaten the enslavement ot the people is not only-violent but untrue. No 60 families of wealth will ever enslave 125,000,000 Americans. Business, we are asked to believe, is shutting down its plants and laying off workers in order to vent spleen against the Administration. That' is a tall order because business isn't crazy and business docn't ruin itself to gratify a hate, while political administrations come and go. If it is the intention of 60 families of great wealth to enslave 125,000,000 and of big business to wreck the Administration, why were there no signs, warnings of allegations of It until after the slump of business? Business keeps its plant going on long as there are orders coining in. When the orders stop it can not go on, any more than an individual can forever keep on making commitments or buying when he is off the payroll, with the difference that ' the individual can receive help from the State through relief and WPA work while business has no place to go to sustain it until conditions improve. Mr. Ickes, speaking for the President, is bitter and defiant and pro, mises the people the "fight" will be "to the finish.'' To' the finish of what? Is it Ihe intent to destroy business? I' it is, who is going to be the winner? Not tlie people who depend on business for jobs and wages. Political administrations of one or another color at AVashlngton are shortlived and the vitality ot the Nation is Such that it can endure much, but if the American people are to be divided into sheep and goats and '.here Is to be a battle royal everybody i- going to be hurt. Jackson Seeing Ghosts It's a long distance from "we planned it that way" to "capital on strike" but not too long for the agile jumpers of an Administration which is bent on taking credit for everything good and blaming somebody, else for everything bad. Yet we suppose that there are millions who will believe Robert H. Jackson today just as there were millions who believed Mr. Roosevelt in 1932 when he laid the great depression at the door of President Hoover. To say that Mr. Jackson's charges are silly and baseless ia to speak the truth but Is also to tell only part of the story. The fact is that they are positively dangerous and the effect of them Is to jeopardize whatever chance existed that the nation could recover quickly from the present recession. So long as lop officials of tlie Government, officials close to the President are permitted to let tholr tongues run wild will) threats, so long will it be impossible to persuade any business man, big or little, that it is worth bis while to employ one more worker than is necessary or make a single plan for tomorrow. As for the People at large, any confidence they may have had in the future of the country must be about destroyed. Mr. Jackson's amazing accusations read like the product ot a tils- ordered imagination. They presuppose not only a gigantic conspiracy by Industrial leaders but a willingness on their part to commit economic suicide. The picture he draws of business men prepared to lose their markets and forego TODAY'S TALK By GEORGE MATTHEW ADAMS Author ot "You Can"; "Just AmonQ Frlendt" their profits merely to discredit the New Deal is so fantastic as to lead to the conclusion that tlie assistant attorney general lias been walking past a churchyard full of ghosts. If the Jackson outburst Is R preview of Administration policy during the coming session of Congress, the nation may as well make np Its mind that troubled times are ahead. Lack of moderation to high places can beget only extremism down be- Be Creative Did you ever hear of anyone interested in his work who wasn't efficient and forever trying to do the job better? In terest and enthusiasm are always creative. We look upon th leaders of great enterprises, often with envy, but what is th story of their lives? I will tell you. Long hours, great application, undying courage, and always creative. Many years ago I became acquainted with a neighbor He was a chemist. ,1 never talked with a man more enthus iastic about his work. This week I read in a New York papei that he had just sent in his 700th discovery to be patented' But this is what struck me about his story. He said that In could hardly wait for morning to come so as to get to hif business. He said he often woke up in the night and jottec down his ideas. Today he is a very wealthy man, but he wasn't when I first met him. Wealth followed, but that is not what he aimed at. It was service to mankind. Unused machines rust out. They become obsolete because put to no use. A gentleman drove into a garage one morning as I came out. An attendant remarked that that man had been driving his car for nearly ten years and that he had gone nearly 200,. 000 miles with it. Unfortunately the makers went into bankruptcy. They made their cars so good that cheaper makers out-competed them at a price that they could not meet without lowering their standard of workmanship. Many of the ideas of that car, however, have become standardized in many other cars. Galsworthy, the English writer, once wrote a beautiful story about a bootmaker who made boots so good that they lasted too long—and so he went by the boards. Progress is measured by the best service to the most people, and the demand is for more and more creators, to do thiiurs better, but at a price so as to serve the largest number. Why is the artist, the writer, the inventor, able to wnrV so long and to give so much of his energy to his work? Because there is a thrill to creative work. Tho trained athlete tears down tissues, but he creates new ones, better and abler to s !o nd the test to which he puts them. BP creative and learn one of the greatest secrets of a nanny life. . Spokesmen for the Administration charge "monopolistic practices" are responsible for the de. preaoion. Thej', It is alleged, rais. ed prices too high. In the process of price raising the Administralion Itself played a part, with legislation providing controls and subsidies, it avowing that prices had to be rain ' ed so agriculture and business could make money and employ idle people. Many factors enter Into causing declines, but if the charges leveled it business by Messrs. Jackson and Icke« c»n be supported why doesn't the Department of Justice proceed tinder the anti-trust laws, or why 4<<l It not start before so as to prevent the depression It asserts monopolies caused?

Under this sway there may he difiicully in making decisions that control future business or governmental policies. In the morning whatever is constructive or progressive should he pushed. This is not a day in which to take any risks. It is fairly fortunate for those who already enjoy good fortune, hut ih°,y should be cautious in making p]"ns for the future. Upheavals and changes of many soils are prognosticated. Old ideas and well established standards of life now will vanish as labor gains i i power.

Your FAMILY NAMES Their Origin and Meaning The surname Ogden is believed 'c be derived from the Saxon "nek" nnd "den," together signifying ""the oak vale or shady valley;" also, from "Ogduine," in the Gaelic implying a young man, from "Og," moaning; young, and "thiine," a man.

Even if 1 made some excuse for flight, he would be upon us before we could get away. But I would not watch him come, I went over a rock, and set out our box of sandwiches and Thermos bottle of coffee. Nearer and nearer echoed the "tic-tac" of his horse's hoofs. Waves of hot blood seemed to flow over me as I stared out towards the mountains, i knew that if Mimi saw my face she would be aware of my agitation, so I kept my back to her. I tried to whistle, and managed a few faint notes of a popular tune. I heard a gasp, and knew that he was upon us. "Andy," Mimi was saying, incredulously, "where did you come from?" I whirled around to see him leap from his horse and catch both of her bands in his. "I've found you at last, Mimi." "Were you looking for roe?" "Why else should I be in this God-forsaken country?" he was smiling down at her. "I've been staying at the hotel at Eagle Lake—" he broke off to say, "Hello, Jerry," as I came forward, "This is—unexpected," my voice was cool. "Rather, isn't it? I intended to ride over to your ranch and surprise you. But the first day on these roads put my car out of commission. And while I was waiting to have it fixed, I thought I'd try some of the trails. This is great luck- I simply loathed his ,ir of as- grass. And suming- a welcome. I stood there, stiffly, snying 1 nothing 1 . But Mimi's tone was eager. "It iis heavenly to see you, Andy." I wondered if she really meant it. How could she mean it? 1 remembered the thing's she had said: i"Ho\v Andy would crow." And now she was urging; him to jstay and have lunch with us. "There's enough for an army. (And there's so much to talk (about." Well, he accepted, and I broke Ibread with him as if he were not my bitterest enemy. Our three [horses grazed on the dry, crisp Andy was asking questions? "So you're happy, Mimi?" "Of course." "But after the honeymoon, -what? I can't quite see you con- Itented in these surroundings." ; "Can't you? Why not?" "Oh, there's nothing here but sky and mountains." She laughed, with her chin tiltod and her eyes lighted. "Nothing hut the sky and mountains - nnd Jerry." "So that's it," dryly, "I see." But he did not see what 1 saw. That Mimi was playing the game to the limit. If she had suffered disillusionment, he was net to know. I wondered if she //ns conscious of what was ahead of her. How did she expect to moet the moment when he would ace our ngly house? When we finished our "lunch I ffathered up the papers, and burned them carefully on thfi bare, rock, stamping out the fire. Then I said, briefly, "It is froing to rain." The sky had grown dark— the nlr i'"M filler? with the strange unquiet which cornea before a storm. Leaves danced madly npalnat the "I've found you nt last, Mimi." murky gray—there was cue rush of wind in the pines. Mimi hated storms. She turned on me her startled glance. "Isn't there any place we can run for shelter ?" I helped her to her horse, and ed the way. Andy brought up the rear, with Mimi between us. The ,vhole thing had the effect of unreality—that the three of us should be high up in this niounlain world alone—I and my wife, and the man who loved her. The trapper's hut had been empty for years. Tlie country had 3een hunted over until there were few animals left whose furs were 'aluable. But the hut was built of good sound logs, and was in the center of an open grassy space. Within were a few broken chairs, i rickety table—cobwebs were ivoven in fantastic draperies across the windows—there was the rustle of field mice among the dried eaves that had drifted in through he open door. We had a race for it towards the end, Mimi's hat was off, and blowup back from her face. Andy's mt was off, too, and mine—the blood was red in our checks where lie wind had buffeted them—! •Vhat a picture to look back upon -with our racing horses, our 'ouLli, the storm nt our heels. We came Into the cabin laugh- ng, with the sheer joy of the excitement. The rain drove in after is. Andy and I pushed the shrick- ng door shut, and there we were n darkness. "Some ride!" Andy said. "I adore It," Mimi was breath- ess, Wo sat clown on the rickety shalrs, and gradually our faces merged like white masks in the inccrtnln light which blurred the ain-washed, cobwebby windows. And now a constraint came upon us. Our voices, beating against the noise of the thunder, were thin and artificial.' The lightning, washing through the room in waves of incandescence, gave us an air of unreality, as if we were ghosts of the bright creatures who had raced with the storm. It was after one of the weird illuminations tliat Mimi clutched my arm. "Jerry, I'm afraid." * I drew, her to me. What did I care if Andy was there to resent my air of possession ? She was mine. "My dearest," 1 said, "it will soon be over." Andy struck a match and lighted a cigaret. The spurt of the flame showed his dark face. "Nobody," he said, with a touch of his old insolence, "is going to believe it when I go back." "Believe what?" Mimi de- - manded. "That I found yon two billing and cooing like turtle-doves." Mimi's laugh had a tensing quality. "What did you expect to find?" I thought by this time you Would be bored to extinction." "But, I'm not." "No," abruptly —"apparently not." Then, after a moment's silence.. "I cnme with some news for you. But it can wait. You are going to nsk me to dine, aren't, you, Mimi ? I want to see your earthly paradise." I held my breath. My mind was filled with the vision of that ugly, red-painted structure. Of the ciut- .ered kitchen, of dead flowers In :he vases, the hopeless untidiness and commonplaccncss of it all. Then, amazingly cool and controlled, Mimi's voice beat against my consciousness. "But I am not ffolnp to ask you' to dine with us, Andy, nor to at* our Paradise." ; (To Be Continued) ;
