Liberty League Knding Its Blundering Career A melancholy little anniversary passed by quite unnoticed the other day. Jniiunry 25 came and went, and hardly anyone remembered that .just a year before Alfred R. Smith of New "York had stood tip at a Liberty League banquet and announced that he was going to lake a long and lonely walk, come the presidential election. It is not so much Mr. Smith who was forgotten in this oversight as the Liberty League itself. For the league • has fallen on dark days. Us publicity organization has been liquidated, its >- ^offices contain only a handful of em- ployes, and its ?30,000-a-ycar presi- _ dent, -Touclt Shouse, has gone oil' the payroll. And thus comes to an unhappy close one of the most bizarre chapters in all Uie history of American politics. For sheer, blundering ineptncss, it is doubtful if the record of the Liberty League will ever be" surpassed. Tho league came on the scene at ti time when the nation was trying to think its way through a perplexing conflict between property rights and human rights. The league immediately managed (.0 reduce the claims of property rights lo a gross caricature. By dressing up the richest men In the land in the shining armor of the defenders of liberty, it made it very hard ,for the man who really had something sensible lo say .about' property's "rights to get a hearing. . But that was only a starter. ' America is essentially n conservative nation. At the dawn of 193G the nation was seriously uneasy about the direction the New Deal was taking. It wanted to see abused corrected, but it was beginning lo be jittery lest the .baby be thrown out . along with the bath water. - And just at that point the Liberty League elbowed its way up to the table. It stamped every form of conservatism with the stamp of blind reaction. It convinced a steadily-increasing section of the public that the op• position to lAIr. Roosevelt was a selfish and stupid Tory opposition. Nor did the league stop there. II managed to find another delicate situation to upset—that involving the supreme court. Among the problems of the New Deal was the question of the conflict OUT OUR WAY between I ho legislative and judicial branches of Hie government. It was most decidedly a question requiring unbiased 'Jhouglit, \cavcful study, nnd an appciil lo the, 1 best intelligence tlint could be brought to bear. But the league set up its own private miprdnie court of corporation lawyers niul undertook to pontificate solemnly on pending legislation before the real supreme court could make itself heard. In this way it succeeded in persuading great masses of people that the supreme court was little more thnn <i bulwark for entrenched greed mid sullen reaction. Today Mr, Roosevelt is at the surn- 1 mit of his power, the supreme court is tinder lire as never before, and John L. Lewis is capitalizing mightily on the country's disillusionment concerning the rights of property. Ami all those things arc to a very renl extent the work of the Liberty League! ' Flood Looters •There never was a great disaster that did not point up both the nobility and depravity of which human beings are capable. In a great shipwreck,, for instance, there are always talcs of men and officers., who .sacrificed their own lives that others might be saved. And tales, too, of men who even disguised themselves us women to make certain of a place in the lifeboats. This strange anomaly in human nature is; again illustrated in the.'terrible Ohio-Mississippi Valley iloocl. While other : men are straining every muscle, risking grave danger, to rescue or relieve '•"'miserable Hood refugees, a few .•prowl; through abandoned homes, seeking loot.

J-JAVING' taken statements from ] Captain Derringham, Mr. Hocksavage, Mr. Stodart and the cabin sleward, Ringbollom, I then proceeded to .Suite C r which had been allotted to Bolifho Blanch It consisted of n drawing room, a stateroom and private bathroom. On the other side of the drawing room there was a single state- loom, which, I am told, had been allotted-to Stodart in order that he might be near his employer. I - instructed Station- Photog- rapher.Southwold to take the necessary/shots of the suite and decided rlo-poslpono a detailed examination until morning. At-12:50 Station Photographer Southwold had completed his work, upon which I had Suite C relocked.and placed Officer Cur- don on guard outside it. In my view, at the moment, this looks like a plain case o£ suicide by a man in a financial jam. Blnne's innuendoes that Hock- savage intended to do him in are discounted by the statements of the secretary, Stodart, who appears convinced that for some days past Blane was not of sounr mind and suffering from a form o: persecution mania. ; 0 c 4.- Rocksnvage's manner is norma and he appears surprised and np- scl at the tragedy, although i should be noticed that he slalcc that this was only a pleasure trip whereas it is made abundant!; clear from SlodaiTs stntcnicn that its real objective was to cove a big business conference betwcci Rocksavage and -Blanc. On the face of it, oil the guest arc apparently respectable peopti of some social standing, and Cap tain Dcrringham gives me his as surance that no new men hav> been brought on in the crew llii trip, or employes of Rocksavnge for any special purpose.
