Or it may be that we shall have to admit Unit Um old Jeflfcrsonmn concept of government no longer is iipplicablc. —Hru-f [SIDE GLANCES By George Clark Confusion of Ideas in Confused Times Among tlic minor oddities of these changed times there is the fact that this Democratic administration is apt to see a stirring balt'o Cor stales' rights carried on by Republicans. Tile baliic lines have formed already. "Local autonomy and state sovereignty must be rcslored," is_. llic, , rallying-civ of the G. 0. P. A''l>ig-' Chicago Republican paper not long ago, devoted a column-long front-page editorial to the task of proving that the Republicans really arc the heirs of the JefYersonian tradition in politics. And if all of this seems slightly cockeyed, lo one -who takes his politics in the old-time manner, all that can be said is that these are cogkcyed times, and that stranger things than ' Republican adherence to the doctrines of Thomas Jefferson will yet be seen. * * • i As a matter of fact, this new pother about states' rights conceals one of the fundamental problems of the moment. I The 'trend toward centralization of government has been speeded up enormously during the past few years —not from design, but through the logic of circumstances. The federal government .has had to do an almost infinite number of things that never before were considered the federal irovcrnment's job—everything from pulling .jnen to work in the/ forests (o lending rnonoy In railroads, from bolstering up banks to regulating the production of hogs. It has reached out tentacles that touch the life of-the ordinary citizen at evcrv irjint. At tlic same time, the slrticlurc of local government has been truinbliiifr. Cities have been unable to collect taxes, city services have been k'ivcn up, policemen and teachers lutve pone unpaid, municipal bonds litwe gone into default—and the end is not yet in sight. So we have, on tho one hand, a vast extension of federal 'activities: and, on the other, a swift and stciuiy shrinkage of local government. And while men prepare to light for a rnvival of Jeffersonian principles, city officials K» ' to Washington begging for even more help from the federal treasury. Where f' 1 of this is going to end is one of the" inost puzzling issues (if the day. It may be that the end of the /U' Watch the Pork Barrel Senator George W. Morris of Nebraska is girding himself t.i make an onslaught on "pork harre!" congressmen at the present session; and his light is one in which all Americans interested in good government wi-ll might join. The senator is concerned especially about the efforts of certain ]-.;!ilicians lo make a patronage p ! e out of such projects as I he Tennes::i>e Valley scheme. It is hard t" lliinl; of anything that could be much more disastrous. . . This Muscle Shoals business may be a good thing for the government lo lie doing and it may not; I hat. al the moment, isn't the |ioii". Neither it. nor any similar government project fcan be permitted lo hecomr a grab- ba'g for politicians wlm want to give : jobs to deserving consliluetits. If Ihe government lets (he patronage-hunters get their hands on it, H, will be doomed in advanqo to failure.

Removing the C/oa/r; President RuoscveH's pledge that this government is finished with the old policy of 1 armed intervention into the ; ,/allairs of -its' Latin-American neighbors is generally looked upon as a historic modilicalion of the Monroe Doctrine. It might bo more accurate lo say that instead of a modilicalion it is a rcslor- " ation of that •doctrine. Originally, the Monroe Doctrine simply was a declaration that Ibis country would resist any al tempt by European powers to establish new colonies, protectorates or ".spheres of influence! 1 ' in the new wor!;!. It .was only comparatively recently that it became a cloak beneath which the United Stales interfered in the internal all'airs of other nations. President Roosevelt'-; declaration restores it lo it.s old position. The historic doctrine- is back no\v whore it was when first promulgated.
