SIDE GLANCES By George Clark Sam's Historic Uncle Achievement in / 933 It is a little more pvolilaljle riglil MOW to look back at 10:tf to look ahead to'193-1. What ll'.e o- ming year may hold for n?, Ihc tf'oil Lord only knows; what 1933 brout'lit us is a matter of record, the .iit'iiifu'iincu of which begins to IJE fully apparent «* the year ;emls. A lot of things happened, a lol of changes were made, and a lot of experiments were begun in tho last year; but in sonic ways the l)it'i;cst. dcvul- opment of all was the change that came over our unemployment relief policy. Starting with the forestry corps, continuing through the NRA codes, ami winding up with the $.100.000.000 Pub--,, lie Works Administration, we set' out for the- lirst time in our history to make jobs for 0111* citi/.cns. We shifted, thill is to say, to an entfrely new attitude. We accepted as part of our social philosophy the propo- . sition that society pwe,s.e«cli. individual—not living, but (he chance tu earn a living. » * * Here is a change of the most profound significance. The Declaration of Independence itself is hardly more packed with consequences. For this change implies an entirely new concept of the function and the duly of government itself. Traditionally, our government was supposed to do little in tim<> of depression except keep the track', clear for such revival as private industry might be able to bring about. Now its responsibility is almost infinitely greater. If great numbers of Americans who are able and anxious tn work can't find jobs, it is up to the government to provide jobs for them—no matter what the obstacles or what the cost. » * » You don't have to think about this very long to discover that it could contain tho seeds of changes an sweeping as any the country ever has seen. Yet there is no reason for us tu be afraid of what Ihis new attitude may bring us. It is drastic unprecedented, to be sure; but it also is n very great step forward along the dif- iicult road which democracy must travel in this industrialized era. and as such it is worth .all the risks. For democracy is a mockerv unless The Post Wants a New Party Tlu- Saltirdiiy KviMiiiiK ''' )Sv > (| c- senbiiiB Ihc present leailer-ship <>f tliu Kcptiblii'iin p:iily as lui|H-li-ss]y rwic- tioiiiiry, iintl thitl ol' Ihc Di-nioi-ralii: pai'ty as diiHKci'Wisly radical, is appealing I o miilillc-oMhu-mail doiniiiiU in l)olli parlies lo join in tin- establish inenl of it new ptirty of tin: ct-nlui'.
