Tile address, strikingly different in tone from the fiery speeches with which Secretary of the Interior Ickes and Assistant Attorney General Rohert H. Jackson recently assailed hig business "abuses," was delivered before the Community Forum. "Balanced abundance," Wallace said, is In he achieved only through the co-operation of agriculture, labor anrt capital. He spoke briefly ot abuses by some business men, saying "workers and government are often critical of a few capitalists for very good reasons." Agriculture and labor would never be willing, he said, "to Pay toll past the castle of the baron on the hill." But in moderate language he assured his listeners in the manufacturing center that "it is important to remember that capital itself is different from a few short-sighted capitalists." He said business men in general were not seeking piedatory privileges as against agriculture and labor. He argued that the farm and city workmen were so interdependent that, any great, disadvantages suffered hy the one group would eventually he visited on the other. In this connection Wallaco expressed frank regret that the wage hour bill was defeated at the special session of Congress.

Sources close to the British government declared that Europe generally—Germany and Italy oxcept- ed—welcomed what (hey called a bold condemnation ot the policies of dictatorial countries. In Rome high Fascists were, indifferent to the President's comments on democracy as a repetition of his previously expressed views. Official comment wan withheld pending examination of the full text. The Fascist attitude previously has been, however, that Italy is Ihe true democracy which could serve as a model for the I statesmen-students of other cotm | tries. | At the British fo-eign office, the I speech was applaude.l as evidence of the identify of American and British foreign policies. French statesmen In Paris left no doubt President Roosevelt's message was considered as "France's own." League circles at. Geneva balled tho President's prophecy ot a. return of democracy to lolnlitarlan slates as a prediction of a almilnr return to International collahora-1 lion Ilirough Ihe League.
