SIDE GLANCES By George Clark The Price We Pay For Machine Politics In all the noise that is being mad*- 1 about the mayoralty light in New York City you can hear, if you listen closely, the ominous howling of a very cold wind—the coldest wind, perhaps, that has ever shaken the fabric of American democracy. Back of the frantic negotiations, campaignings anil wire-pullings of the New York situation, where the nation's largest city tries desperately to gel Tammany off its back, there stands tin- simple and unpleasant fact that our system of numidpal government has " come perilously close to breaking down . entirely. : New York is proving—just as Chi• cago and a host of oilier cities have al' ready proved—thai our familiar lyp:: • of machine politics is totally inadequate to meet the problems of the-' modern world. t » * For a great many years we have innocently gone along, handing over our city, county and state governments, to men who quite frankly were not especially into'pstp.d in good govcrn- ; ment, but whose chief concern was the building up o.f theii' own political fortunes. The results wero scandalous—but while times were good wj could afford them, or we thought we could. The. local government became (he weakest link in the democratic, chain, but the chain was slack during prosperity and nobody-minded very much. Now tin; : chain is stroll-lied taut.' Tlie weal; ; link is being strained right to the '. breaking jwint. Machine politics, in other words, is as anachronistic as one of Columbus' caravels. \Ve have got to .the point where we simply can't put up with il any longer. And what is hapiwrnng in. New York is an ob.jecl lesson for • the remotest county courthouse, town - hall and state eapiloMn America. * » » foreign observers have long predicted ; that if the American democracy broke down the collapse would b'.'giu with the municipal government. Are we begin- iiing to witness thai collapse now? Is the cold wind that howls n from Manhattan island going to !)'• a dcstroy- - ing cyclone that finds us with no storm cellar handy? Or arc we going l;j havu sense Fixing the Power Rate Yardstick Watching the various I'lcments of the new deal take shape these days is a lillle bit like peering into a test lube in which a chemist is attempting an entirely new, elaborated complicated kind of synthesis—will i the added factor that at least a few of the chemists on the outskirts are ».ol dead sure that the whole mess w^n't presently blow up and wreck (he laboratory. Some of us fmd one part of the experiment most interestinj!, and some of us find another; but certainly one of the most striking in its potentialities is that being conducted at Muscle Shoals. A great many reasons were advanced for the Muscle Shoals program while it was being debuted, and one of the chief ones was thai it would serve as a yardstick by which electricity rates cotdd be measured; and it is pretty evident now that .the authorities are going lo do everything they can to make the yardstick a good one. t t * 11 has been announced already that consumers of power from Muscle Shoals will be charged, on the average, two cents per kilowatt hour. The significance of this figure rests upon two facts: First, that this—according to power authorities at Washington—is just a little more than half the average power rate for the nation last year. Second, that thu Muscle Shoals authorities are taking the utmost care to make the return they will receive from their sale of power equal to the return a privately owned utility would have to receive in order to meet fixed charges, taxes, interest and depreciation. "Thesi; rates," says David E. Lilien- ihal, director of power development at the Shoals, "have been computed on a conservative basis to cover all the costs of furnishing the service, including operation, maintenance, depreciation anil I axes. In addition, ivn have made provision for interest and retirement although such provision i-; not required by the Tennessee Valley Authority act." books but they have loimd Oml n ^ man of my knowledge and ability j Is not so easily taken m and when' I toW them they should have been more- loyal to me and did as 1 have done, stayed out of the church, bin they said they could find no real excuse for staying out of church, thai they were e'ad U> tx- oil Unheard, Unit, all they to do nvx 'vas to crltlclM.
