The Pulilic Worts A.liiiinislnition is (Hsi)iiii.-int' millions of tlollai's to linanrc projects in all purls oT the iiii- tion, giving employment to thousands. One naturally would think that all classes of citizens would unite bad; of. such ..endeavor, unsuUishly and \vholc- 1 heartcdly. But no!

"The easiest 'money .in Washington- is being colleclcil today by lawyers, agents, lobbyists and p"li(icians, supposed to have influence with the Public Works Administration," says Sec- rotary of Interior Humid L kkcs, who administers this fund. ''They collect large sums as retainers and fees, on the claim that they can get favorable consideration for municipal and state projects. "Such influence does not exist. Citil- lible applicants merely are swindled out of their money." And, Mr. Ickes adds, pui'.sons employing such "fixers" arc likely to cast suspicion on their projects, which otherwise might win favorable consideration. .'•. . '] Stable Government It is a common thin;; .for students of the science of politics to complain that the American system of government is unduly rigid and inflexible as compared with the parlinmunlary systems of such democracies as England and France. Those systems, it is said, reflect far more directly the wishes of the people. As soon as a government loses the confidence of the masses, it falls. All this may be (iiiitc true; but recent events in France >eem to indicate that a parliamentary system can be altogether too flexible. One premier follow* another in dizzy succession in Paris just now. The ill effects of such continual change.-; are loo obvious to need mentioning; one only can add that a little more rigidity in government, after (he American fashion, might be an excellent thing for France just r.ow. OUT OUfi WAY Welles Out of Cuba 11 probably would l;e « niisUike to assume that Snninor Welles lias boon rebuked by Ijcinn recalled as iiinbaasa- dor to Cuba. Welles was no I sent, (.'own llierc as Iiurniuncnt amljas-iadur. lie had a spc- cilic job lo perfiirm—lo grease tlic .skids under Mathado—and lie did it with skill itntl promptness.

Cuban ollidals fuel Unit lie lias blacked recognition of the present government. If Hie government endures, and we do rorogni/.e il formally, Welles would be in an awkward position, as ambassador. •The shift is a logical one, bul it tloes not netessarilv relied on Welles.
