It was 'several years ago thai Mi'- Swope first suggested to American business men that they would eventually have to devise some moans by which the national economy could be run according to a plan. At that time Mr. Swcpc outlined a tentative framework for •illuming that end. The leaders of industry read it, remarked that it was very pretty but rather 'impractical, and went back to their knitting. And when Mr. Swope remarked that if business men didn't cook up some such plan themselves the government would sooner or later cook up one for them, they looked the other way and began talking about their golf scores, or something. * * * Now Mr. Swope stands as a prophet whose prediction has been fulfilled; and if he had added an "I told you so" to his most .recent proposal, no one could have blamed him. Our ideas have changed in the InM couple of years'.' When Mr. Swope lirst suggested his plan, it aroused only a sort of academic interest. Now it is a live issue; and the interesting thing about it is that the nation has almost unanimously accepted its underlying principle. This principle is coinmon tu Mr. Swope's :plan and to the existing NRA set-up as well. And it is, simply, thai some- sort of widespread co-operative control has got to be instituted over tho nation's business and industrial life, for the sake of the individual business - man and for the sake of the nation as - a whole. Our present regime vests such control primarily in the federal government; Mr. Swope's plan would vest it primarily in a council ol thr. business men themselves. To be very blunt about it, your choice between the two schemes will depend largely on whether you think the business community can be trusted. . • <{ 3^ J 9BK But the important thing is that the The People Ordered Tho value of a referendum system, by which voters can lay Ihoir hands directly on ,an i.ssnc which their eluded representatives refuse- to tackle, in shown by Ohio's experience this fall with an old age pension law. For years people had tried to put such n law through the state legislature. Time aflcr lime the legislators contemptuously snowed il tinder. The battle went on for sixiten years and each time the law failed. Finally, this year, frnU-rnal, labor and church groups united to get signatures and have a referendum on the issue. The proposal came to a vole at the recent election—and carried by the overwhelming total of 1,380,107 votes to 520,005. It is pretty clear lliat the legislature had been going directly against the strong majority senlimcnl of the state. But if it had not been for the referendum machinery, the voters would have been utterly helpless. Competent Specialist Needed / to Treat Infantile Paralysis KV l)lt.

Joe gave it as his opinion that his church people are more interested in humanity than Mother's, so naturally they would buy more Christinas seals and subscribe more liberally to the Red Cross. Mother says she Is going to see to it thnt a close check is kept on this and when the drive is over, she will be able to show him the adual figures.
