The Moderm Concept oj Government One of Ihc reiisons why th« New Dea! often seems confusing is. the fact that only now arc we bcgiiininj? to. bring our idea of government into line wllli economic changes which took place several decades ago. We started as an agrarian nation, iir. which the great mass of citizens ill- ways cotiltl earn their living '.on i\i& ! land if the government only would leave them alone. Some years ago we changed to an industrial civilization, in which the prime necessity of the citizen was a'job and not a piece of land, hill om- concept of sovormiiunt remained unchanged. Now we are trying to bring ourselves up to (late. If the effort makes us giddy now and then, it is no wonder. Edward A. Filcnc, the Huston merchant, recently ' rjomtcd out in an address before the American .Academy ol Political and Social Science that our delay in the accomplishment, of this job led inevitably to Die creation of Unit "invisible- gover;imbiH" against- which reformers used to argue sn hotly. * * • Someone, he remarks;, had to control the tangle in human relations which resulted when our agravmn' order' changed to an industrial cider. We did not believe that was a job for the regular, government; so ;.m invisible govej-nment'took s'tiape to do '• the 'M>, .and it did it badly, because no one understood precisely what had Lo be done. The visible government, meanwhile, continued to try to keep its hands oil' all the developments of a rising industrialism. In doing so, a a Mr. Filcne remarks, it found that by keeping its hands off it forever was finding its hands full. * * * And he adds: "Because it refused to deal with the causes of strikes, it was kept busy with their effects. Because it did not deal with the problem of unemployment, it had to deal with the plight r.f the unemployed. Because it had nothing to fay about the distribution of wealth, it constantly was confronted with crises caused by inadequate distribution, which some stick-in-the-niud traditionalists still refer to as "overproduction. 1 " What is happening now is simply that we have come to realize the neces- BLYfHEVlLLE, (ARIO COinMtttt NEWS sity of a new relationship between government and industry. Thin docs (not mean that the industrialist is going to get soaked, or that H bureaucracy of busy-bodies is going to run our factories unil our .'salesrooms and our banks, It just rnean.s that we are gelling squared away so that a 1'ull reaping «f the incalculably rich fruits uf a great industrial era at last will bo possible. —Uruco Gallon. La/e /Your Dangers One of the odd things which tlic Ohio Stutc ilighwuy J)i'p;irfiiionL lius discovered is tlutl Diu aa-iik-nl rate on country roads is highest between the hours of 3 and <l A. II.—precisely the moment when the stream oi tralfic is at its thinnest. Part of this is duo to thu fuel that a certain pei-ceiilnge o f intoxiciil c d motorists is found on tlu> high ways at that hour; and an intuxiciilud inolur- ist who is oul driving at half past three in the morning is apt lo he very' badly intoxicated, indeed.

Avoiding Disillusion One thing, at least, occurs to anyone who meditates over th- tremendous federal budget that recently »'as unveiled in Washington. It is extremely unlikely that ii will contain any unpleasant surprises for anybody. By using tha lowest e.stin.ate of government receipts and the highest estimate of government expenditures, the president gave us as dark a picture as he possibly could have ^ivun. It everything goes badly, things will be just as ha presented them; if, on the other hand, the government spends a little less than the maximum, or receives a little more than the minimum, they will be a good deal better. Probably it is just as well that we look at the darker side first. Whatever happens, we at least h<ue no false hopes. The government's finance.- for the coming year won't, disillusion us. The only possible surprise will be a pleasant one. My ambition for 1934 is to make Max Bacr heavyweight champion. —Jack Drmpscy. I * * * A tremendous drive toward ;. .vorld o!
