Fourteen states and some 150 cities are expected to get together in ll m near future in a scheme of co-operation by which information can be exchanged promptly and co-operation CHII be achieved. Slate bureaus of identification arc being established to cooperate with the federal bureau at Washington. Legislatures' are considering schemes to have state police forces supplement the work of sheriffs and county police. The rcsulU-of all (hi.s should be to make 1 the path of such men as Uillingur and Floyd infinitely more rocky. The kind of co-operation that will enable the law to strike promptly across state and city lines, is precisely the kind of thing thai the criminal cannot cope with. Jt is cJicoiiragiHg to sco that we arc going to get some of it.

Wifli such lofty sarcasm does/Francis Poulson, state Democratic Ichairman for Ohio, reply to Federal Relief Administrator Harry Hopkins' revelation thai the. Ohio Democratic machine has been collecting "campaign fund contributions" from linns which sell -supplies to the state relief administration. You could not get a better sample of the blind insolence of the politician. Such elegant sarcasm about it,'being "especially sinful" tu shake down people who hope to do business with you! Why, of course it i.s especially sinful—and anyone but a politician can see it at a glance.

For Safety at Sea Action of the United States senate in voting an investigation into the loss of the liners MOITO Castle and Mohawk is a reminder that these two disasters were never properly cleared up, as far as the general public is concerned. The Scnalc Commerce Committee will proceed to dike testimony, to review the evidence already assembled liy the Commerce Department'and the Department of Justice, and to work out some new legislative program to make life and properly safer on (he was. Jt is this last part of llic. job wliich is the most important. We have a right to know why these two liners were lost; but the chief value of that knowledge will be that it will enable iis to keep such things from happening -again. Something j s decidedly wrong-, .somewhere, and it i.s up to the senate committee to find out what it is and to set if right. Escape From Reality Tim way in which an economic crisis can be a direct menace to world peace wa.s strikingly illustrated by a paragraph in a-recent news dispatch from Berlin, telling of Germany's re- iiclion to Hitler's rejection of the mil- ilary clauses of the Versailles treaty. "The entire -country," said the dis- P'ltcli, "has forgotten its economic, troubles during the last lew days lo swamp Hitler's office with enthusiastic letters and telegrams of grulitiide." It is right there that the danger lies. Any national -lender, confronted by an insoluble economic crisis, can always fake his people's minds off of their troubles by adopting a ".strong" foreign policy. The templation to adopt such a policy,••therefore, i.s extremely great. But a strong foreign policy i.s the kind of policy that eventually leads to war. In trying to submerge the economic problem, the leader runs the grave danger of starting something that can only"be finished by lighting. OUT OUR WAY The Constitution is the bulwark of the |»or.
