Radicalism If White House Program Fails By ItODNKV ITUTCHKR WASHINGTON. —With elections over, the eternally optimistic Itoosc- vclt believes, we will settle down to a period' of rather good feeling in which hardly anybody will be criticizing the New Deal. The While House even hojies for that major. forward movement of finance -and industry for wlik'h It lias hoped so lAg in vain. Bankers and industrialists have licen told they might as, well get Bolng after election, that u'hal they're really been suffering from is a simple case of old-fashioned election year, jitters, and (hat (lie New Deal has long fcince paved the way for the big push. It has been hinted to them that the administration understands their tendency to join m the Re- JH/bllran anvil chorus, but that the occasion for t bat is all over now. Thc White House hopes are shared only mildly by many New Dealers. But there's a wide feel- Ing that more co-operation and less obstruction, are to be expected. Someone Must Give Jobs Roosevelt, Richbcrg, and other administration spokesmen will continue lo din this story into the ears of the New Deal critics: Either industry or government is going to . put Die unemployed to work. So far, nobody has been able to think up an answer to that one. Some of the whales of finance and industry,, hot excepting members Of thc of Morgan and its affiliated industrial empire, are Taking it — Roosevelt believes— very much fo heart. : They realize that the New Deal is going to cost a lot more money in any event and wonder how they can get out of H as cheaply as possible.

Pitlman proiwsed to inlrodnle a bill that would provide that th? ;overni]icnt Issue fconds to j)ay lh- •ctcrans und that the bonds ibe •etired from the profit made he government in the. coining »f iilver. He voted against the soidleis bonus bill, vetoed by President! Roosevelt, during the last sesslji of congress. • '• >i reason for this is that Congre'ss . is getting: Increasingly "dangerous," from the conservative jxiint of view. Big Business ho longer has the most powerful voice on Capitol Hill. .The one control force Is Roosevelt, who can make Congress do almost anything he wants it to do and who, on the other hand can \isually xeep it from running wild. This fact has been sinking in and —if you want to give your imagination a bit of rein—may yet result in a large element of Big Business Roosevelt as sheep ID n shepherd in a storm. Banks May Play Ball It seems fairly certain now that when the administration asks lor a large public works bond issue this winter, the big New York banks, which were so snooty miring , the last Treasury financing operation, will be found playing ball. Certain bankers -who visited Roosevelt in advance of the recent American Bankers' Association convention whispered later that they'd seen u magazine wide open on the president's desk—and the article displayed w as entitled "The Strike of Capital." At about the same time the story was circulating among bankers that Roosevelt intended to bawl their out and threaten them. Tlicn the' bunkers decided it was safer to take a chance with Roosevelt than with Congress, and the president—to all surface appearances—took, them into camp The approach to Industrialists is of the same type. • * > Itift in Clouds The other day the White House heard nf a certain corporation which had a $117,000,000 constnic- tion program teetering on the verge of.execution and of a corporation . president who had just ordered a $l4,0(»,000 expansion program and feared his directors would fire htm if' a business pick-up didn't come along and justify that. Such instances encourage Roosevelt to believe that recovery can come along with a rush if some way can be found to bring about n concerted effort. C. Buck, Louis Hawkins, clerks. Gosnell—C. -E.
