Stop the Chiselers One'of the commonest criticisms of the NRA program is that the anthor- itio.s are not "cracking down" with sufficient speed and firmness on chisclcrs. Talk to any small tradesman who flies the Blue Eagle and you are apt to hear him voice this complaint; that he is doing the best he can, but that certain of his com|x>tit3fs flagrantly are .disregarding the conditions under which, they got their NRA emblems. A similar complaint v/as made the other day by the 1275 members of thu Indiana Restaurant Opcators' Association, who complained thai the NRA authorities have failed to drive the chiselers out of that field. These men pro. posed'outright withdrawal from the NRA unless conditions arc corrected. These tire perfectly valid complaints, and Washington would i'o well to act on them promptly and decisively. The man who chisels on his Blue Eagle is the meanest kind of, and deserves summarv treatment. Victory in Dejeat Ferdinand Pccora has won the admiration of his fellow citizens in the last half dozen months, and they share in' his disappointment over his failure to win election to the job of district attorney in Manhattan. But there's a bright side to his defeat, after all. If he had been elected district attorney, he would have hud to stop aet- .^ing as counsel for the Senate stock: mar' ket committee; and it is a little bit hard, off-hand, to think of any other man who could do as good a job in that position as he has been doing. As it is, he can remit hi in that post, where there is :i great deal of very valuable and imiwrtant work_for him to do. His loss, in this particular instance, looks very m,uch like the nation's gain. Manhattan may have failed to get a tirst-i'ate prosecutor, but the Senate committee can keep an unusually able investigator. 'Forging Ahead' The government's public works program, excellent in conception, has not proved as speedy in execution as had been expected; and since it was to tear a major part of the recovery effort, its slowness has a bad clfect on the entire recovery program. Nevertheless, there are at last indications that the public works job is beginning to swing into high. Figures compiled by the. F. W. Dodge Corporation show that the construction industry is "forging ahead under steam fired by the quickening effects of the federal public works program." Construction contracts awarded during October reached a higher volume than in any month since November, 1931, with one exception; and they were 35 per cent above the figure for October, 1032. Here is truly cxcellen' news. . Once the public works program really gets into its stride, our progress toward full recovery will be accelerated immeasurably. I SIDE GLANCES By George Cbtrkj ^"•f—r 3 i ' ' .g^^^^a^s—BE i =5gesJI Death Of A Criminal H is n common statement that "crime doesn't pay"; and Homotimes, when one reads about tlie money that gung.ster.s and .slick-up men have to spend, the statement sounds rather silly. But every so often .something happens to indicate Unit, in the long run it is true, after all. The other ilny, for example., un aged derelict was killed by a laxi in New York. Taken to the morgue, he was identified as one John Cunningham, with a string of aliases; and the interesting parl about it is that the man UHUtl to be one of tliu most notorious and successful of American burglars. He started out in this career 50 years ago, and for years he was known as "the Boston Burglar." His exploits were many and lucrative; at one time the police called him America's best- dressed, burglar. And he wound up a penniless and ragged old man, n typical Bowery bum, who died without money in his pockets or food in his stomach! "All this talk alioul Wagner and liccthovcn.
