A 'Dictatorship' Under Popular Control When Stanley Baldwin, former prime minister (o England, declared the other day that the American constitution has broken down and that Americans today are "practically under « • dictatorship," he expressed a misconception wliicii his diptiince from the scene of action makes quite umloi'stmid- • able. What is much less i-asy to understand is the fact that there are -some people on this side of the water who ' share in thai misconception. In part, this misconception represents a genuine bewilderment over Ihe pu/'/.l- ing things that hnve happened since last March. In part, also, it stands for one of those "synthetic dead cats' 1 which Gen. Hush S. Johnson lias been talking about. Either way, it deserves a little straight talk. If we have a dictatorship today, it only can be said that it ia by all odds one of the queerest and most unrecognizable of dictatorships ever erected anywhere. * * * Every singlo thing thai is being done today is being done as a result of the vote of tlie people of America, either directly ov through their representatives. ' . . • The president was put into office by popular vote. The |K>wcio he exercises were given him by vole of Confess. The whole framework of emergency legislation which wo call the recovery program came through Congress. And that is only hall'of it. A new Congress takes office in January. It can, if it chooses, repeal every paragraph of this legislation. If it disapproves of what the executive has been doing, it can render him impotent. It has the power to throw him out of office if he steps over the boiindnry of the executive's proper sphere. On top of all that, il Is an obvious fact that success of the "new deal" depends first, hist and all the lime on popular support. The minute the public at large disapproves of it, the cards go back into tho deck. A program which appeals for the voluntary co-operation nf millions of people is not the sort of thing a dictator can sr.ove down a country's throat. Why is all this worth saying, since it is so obvious? Because we are be- ' ginning to hear this talk of a "dictatorship" more ami more, frequently of late; and because most of it is a cloak of sellish opposition, which prefers not to appear In Us proper guise. This is not to say that no one can oppose the recovery program. It simply means that any such opposition must rest on the right foundation. ' There are plenty of reasons for criticizing t'<c administration's acts— but this dictatorship business is not one of them. —Bruce Catton. SIDE GLANCES By George Clark Proofs of Success '-.;. For butter or for worse—and the 'adverb you choose will dopeml largely oil whether you clnss yourself as a conservative or a liheral—the National Recovery Administration suems to have demonstrated i" Hie l«sl forlmsht that il is boss. First the steel iwople agreed that the question of unionization of their employes was something tor the em- ployes to settle. Then Uioy found out, that they could niKke steel rails for less than $40 a Ion, after all. Then Henry Ford began to IOCKUH Up on the facts and figures raiuekltci by Washington. Lastly, the Ford strikers in New Jersey discovered tiiat their company the right of collective bargaining. All of this indicates that the Recovery Administration is sitting pretty securely in the driver's scut. The fact may please you or it may make you tear your hair—but there's no ignoring it, lit any rate. *: •' • . V ' " '"'i - • £ • - V. *" . "•{•' '•' \H~ ' '--. .

' Where formerly applications .were received and considered in privacy, the present governor has brought this whole matter out Into tne ' open by holding staled pubUc hearings. By olosc questioning of applicants •. and "their ' friends he has endeavored to get to the botloin of each cnse on its merits, and particularly to brinff out any evidence ot "pardon brokerage." He has indicated his unwillingness, to grant furloughs yxcept in real emergencies or • unusual cases where parole docs nol seem to him a sufficient recognition nf the prisoner's claims to leniency. At his latest public hearing, he denied 23 petitions for this form of clemency ,whlch has been generously used by former governors. Yet there is nothing cold or .unfeeling In his attitude. Alter lefusl-.i? to extend a furlough for a prisoner who said that his wife, in deslilute circumstances, is expecting the birtn of her eighth child within a lew weeks, the governor wrote about tbe woman's plight to \V. R. Dyess, the stale relief direclor, and recommended her for help il the facts were loimtl to be as states. Of course every mtm \v"r.o gets into Hie penitentiary wants to get out again as soon as possible, and in some, of the pleas for early release there Is merit.
