The Scales Balance In raVor o/ NRA There never wr.s a honeymoon that lasted more than a few months: and if Mr. Ivoosevclt's excursion with the American people is beginning to produce a crop of disagreement.-* and hard words, nobody need be especially surprised. The wonder is that the honeymoon has lasted as lour; as it has. Looking at the new deal without partisan biaH one way or (he other, U is possible to arrive at two conclusions about it: 'First, that it has nofi done as much for us as we permitted ourselves lo hope. Second, that it neverlhuless hsis a genuine record of very solid achievement. The depression isn't over, commodity prices are not back w.hcre wo want them, to be, labor unrest is not ended, unemployment still' exists, and the farmer still is baying at the moon. - * » 9 On the other hand, somewhere between 3,500,000 and -1,000,000 nicu have gone back to work, child labor largely has been abolished, Hie com- .modity price level is higher than it was before; and wage scales have been improved. Balance the benefits ..against the shortcoirifirgs and you f;cf a net gain which is very much worth having. It is easy to be disappointed because the number of men who have gone back to work is not larger. Nevertheless, the mere fact that the purchasing power of upwards of three and a half million riti/.ens has been restored is bound to have :\ wide and lasting effect. It's something, as they say, which can't be laughed olf. » • It also is oasy to complain because there has been a trade recession since the early part of the summer. But there are two things to remember in this connection. First, trade boomed at an abnormal rate late last spring, because manufacturers sought to build up surpluses before the NKA codes wont into effect. Second, while trade has declined, employment and payrolls have kept on going up—which, when you stop to think about it, is a fact of the highest importance. A depression as wide- deep as the one we have been in is not ended in a day or in a month or two. It still is a little early for us to form final judgment on the merits of the recovery program. Meanwhile, we might ag well rc- mcmbqr that it has done some filings, at least, of great value. We may not be out of the woods, but we fit least have got lo P. point where we can see daylight liirough the trees. SIDE GLANCES By George Clark Plain Horse Sense If you over get tired of the monotonous dny-by-day routine of ordinary life, consider the ease of-Henry, the English laundry horse. ilenry spent his limn hauling a laundry wagon nl>oui a regular route, year in and your oul, awl the other day he got fed up on it. So, when his owner unhitched him, he broke away, dashed down io the seashore, plunjrcd Into the Kntflish channel, and started swimming toward France. His boss, unable to ealdi him, went home and mourned the Ivss of ;i faithful worker. Next nioniiiijt he found Henry in his pasture agfiiii; but when lie went to harness him, Henry broke loose' once more, plunged into the sea and started out for foreign parts a second time. This time ho was caught and brought back home, am! now he's on the regular laundry wagon rpute again. Anyone who is fond of animals would give a good deal to know just what got into Ilenry. And those of us who sometimes get tired of doing the saniol old stunt over and over, day after day, will imagine that \ve know ' just how he fe)t.

Hut this is precisely what happened at the recent convention of the Investment Bankers at Hot Springs, Va, .... > A number of metropolitan financial writers were invited to speak, and they lost little time in telling the bankers that their main 'job right now is to restore public conlidence. In the past, they pointed out, bankers have not entirely frank with the public; today, as a result, the public's con- lidence in investment bankers is one of those things, you hear about, but never see. . "Before you can hop" to persuade Congress to <lo the things you know ought to be done," one writer told the bankers, "you must restore public conlidence in investment banking. You must let the public know that yon are anxious to disavow some of the things done by some members of your organization." To which the man in the street doubtless \yill say a hearty "Amen."

Remember thai Ihe child reritiircs both food and rest not only for maintaining the energy of its body.I but also for gi'uivdi and for repair of tissue. Sleep is the most satisfactory way of resting.
