Undc Sam h:is k-iirii- ed a whole lot of things in Iho last Vnw months, and his IMK jolj n;Jil nuw is to figure out \v!i:it Ihuy nienn :nni wlwl he ought to do ii!>oul th'iin. One of t!w tilings he has jjol to make up his mind about is Hie six.i! of the monetary reward Nvliidi is permissible for the private i-ilb.en in as complex and closely integrated n society as that of modern America. The Held of private enterprise rewards its lenders very well. Tin: country is still a bit Ki'OK.'i.v t'voiM piping at the discoveries the SeimU; committee has matin about ban!i.;rs' incomes. Enormous salaries, fill bonuses, i'e- tnining ffcs from -this i.)u\ I hat outside corporation, chaiu-es to KL't a little rakc-olf on tlie side by playing Hie niav- kcl — all of these things i;o to .swell the income ol" the financial and industrial titan. * * + And the ordinary American is trying to ligiivo out it it is all necessary. The theory, of course, is thai you . have jjot to hung up hicj;c rewiinls of that kind if you ' arc to .got large- caliber men to do the bi.c; jobs. Is the theory correct? Well, the president of the United States has a fairly responsible job, and he gets along on §75,000 a year. That's a good deal of money, but it is small compared to what such men a.s Wiggin, Mitchell, Hill, Grace and their confreres get. fit Gen. Hugh S. Johnson, who lias the colossal job of overseeing all American industry, does it for ?'j.nOO a year. Donald Kicliborg, N'RA'.s general counsel, works for S12.000 a year. Maj. Gen. Kdward Abikham, who, as chief of the army's engineers, will have to spend hundreds of millions of dollars in the next four years, works for ?GOO a month. One of the biggest engineering jobs ever it'K'.ertakon — the Mississippi flood control work — was put through by bis predecessor, Maj. Gen. I.ytle Brown, on the same salary. And the enormous Muscle Shoals 'project is directed by three men who draw ? 10,000 So what? a year apiece. —Bruce Cation. A'o Revolution While Projit Prevails In the p;ist, dopre.-.sions ended when UK; cluiiu-e to make mi>'i;\v began to reappear in commerce and industry. Wii arc trying in end this OIK; in the reverse order-by putliti^ re-employment ami increased w;tgrs lirsl and Inislinj; (hat priil'il will follow in the natural sequence. Owners of capital are. not yet persuaded fully thai the profit actually will appear on schedule. Furthermore, witnessing the vast sums lhal are being six'iil, and considering the heavy taxes thai will have, to be levied ultimately to nv.'ol these expenses, they arc afraid <>! whal may happen to their profit when it docs appear. Consequently, capital in tin; main is hesitant, and the recovery program does not make the speed wo should like. * * * Vet all this fear of capital, and the efforts of government to provide reassurance, add up to just one thing: The fact that the new deal is, at bottom, conservative and not revolutionary. Notice this, for example: The entire recovery program still depends on the profit motive—the dislindive, feature of the capitalistic system as we have known it. Them is no hint that the profit motive is lo be shelved. Capital may he hesitant, tearing that the scheme may not work out well; but it isirt running for Hit storm cellar, as it would if it foresiiv any intention to do away with the rules under which profit is possible. Could there be a bettor indication . that the administration seeks to change our existing order as little as possible? It in staking its entire program on the belief that the confidence of capital investors can be restored. It' its program had a revolutionary tinge, I hat point would not bother it for a moment.
