Hou) Our Solans May Reduce, Their Worries Apparently one of the reforms we need down in Washington is it measure tlidl would save politicians from themselves. One of lliu comnioneat coinpliiinls of the luiicl-wurked congressman—and most of them, by the wriy, do work very hard—is that greedy job-!umk'r.s take up so much of his lime that he is hard put to do the work for which he iras ejected. That being true, you'd suppose that when congressmen had a chance to reduce the number of, posts open to spoilsmen they'd jump at it. II is obvious thai no one could pester u congressman for jobs that were completely out of the congressman's con•Irol. Before tile present .session is over, it; looks as if the lawmakers would gel, a chance to -p'rotcd themselves in this matter.', Senator George \V. Norris of Nebraska has introduced a bill to take the Postpfficc Depaj.tii^nl;. completely out bf"poli(ics,' arid 'he inlands 7 to have it voted on before adjournment. * * » Senator Norris' bill is one of Ihose proposals which arc so clearly and unmistakably in lh e public interest that it is hard for the innocent citizen to understand why they! aren't passed with a rush and. a, whoorj, Under- it, all postmasters 'wbulfl fib put under: strict civil • service rides. They would be appointed by a postmaster general whose term of,office .would be, ten years instead of four, and who would be barred from all political activity. Their appointinont.s would nut be subject to senatorial cun- lirmation, and the jobs would be pcr- - manent. All appointments would be made en merit, and 11 system oi' transfers wuuld be set up so that a career service similar to that in the State Department could be worked out. .'.'*»* Merits of- such plan need no argument. The Posloffiec Department is ruajly a gigantic business organization; this scheme would simply have it run in a business-like manner, with a complete divorce from politics. And it ought to. be a great relief _ OUTOUKWAY for the congressman, No longer would he have to spend a couple of hours a day talking to candidates for the post- nmslmliip al Leaking Creek. One of his major worries would be removed. His life would be smoother and easier. All 'these things considered, the bill ought to pass in jig lime if it ever conies to « vote. Senator Norris in- sisils thai he will get action on it lie- fore the session ends. It will be enlightening to see what lhe congressmen do when this proposal comes before them. —Bruce Cation. Hope in Alaska One of the unexpected by-protluc(s of the depression is going to be a renewed attempt to tap the unused agricultural riches of Alaska. The federal government will finance a "sample migration," transporting 200 families and '100 single' 'men to the Matanuska valley beyond Anchorage, this spring. The move is admittedly nn c-xperi- men!. The climate of the valley is said to bt< very like that of the "drouth sillies" back home, and the colonists are all to come from those slates, so Unit that part of the transition is expected to bo easy. These colonists will, furlhermore, be taken, from unproductive land which is to be retired from production; and lhe soil in the iMatanuskn valley is said to bo, fertile enough lo provide excellent farms. This experiment seems lo be well worlh making. Alaska is potentially a rich, productive land, aside from its gold deposits. It, i s logical lhat a serious cll'ort be made lo see if ils polcn- lialilies cannot bo realized. Mr. '..Wallace's Conlribulion The candor of Secretary Wallace's statements is ns engaging as It Is rare. Here is n man who lives up to the announced, but- too oltcn neglected admintstrallon Ideal of admitting errors when they become evident. Testifying before a house sub-committee, lie was frank (o any llial the policy of crop restriction had reached its limits; Hint the country should him away from limitation or production to serve u coiisumcrs' demand that awaits satisfaction, but at lower costs. U Is a virtual repudiation of the scarcity theory, a recognition of ii great, market, 'which had been largely lost lo sight In the hue ami cry over curbing an imaginary "over-production. 11 Mr. Wallace, in fact. ha s never accepted crop limitation save as mi emergency measure. In his book, "New Frontiers." he wrote: "To hnvc lo destroy a growing crop is a shocking commentary un our civilisation, i could tolerate it only us n cleaning up of HID 'wreckage from the old days or unbalanced production. Certainly none of us ever wants to go through a plow r ut> campaign again, no matter how successful n price-raising method It, proved to IK." In his denunciations of a price structure Hint is "halt steel and half putty" was foreshadowed the present suggestion for bringing two great agencies of our production—farm and factory— into closer economic union. "Much political ferment in a depression period," he said, "springs out'of the fact Dial some prices conic clown and others do not." To restore the equilibrium .so that mass consumption may be revived is our great economic problem. Reducing production will not solve it, and Mr. Wallace 1ms made a contribution to the progress toward a si/lution by saying so. —St. Louis Pa By William!
