WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 9, 1938 BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS Find No Trace Of Death Car's Driver Declares Conference Good Show, .Holds Little Will Come Of It HY ItODNEY niJTCHKK Courier News WaslilngLun Correspondent WASHINGTON. Feb. 9.-H is now I clear enough flint "little business ,/oen,' although sorely confused, I I, juttern after the -big business \inon in their econciijlc tliiiikiii" ' At the never-to-be-forgotten con- ' ferenco wliich nearly n thousand or the former group attended in Washington It became obvious that some of them arrive at similar conclusions independently nnd that others Just parrot the headlines i But, the boys did deliver a terrific wallop to any Idea Roosevelt had thai he could get any strong sup- norl^or any new ideas—from"small business. Through nil Die cat-calls, conflict and uirmoil nothtng stood oul more distinctly than the wistful yen of small business for a return to the dear old days of Calvin Coolid'je Various delegates estimated Hint from 90 to 95 per cent of their group had voted for Landon In 1930. Effect Almost. Nil It seems likely that the "little business men" and their recommendations, most of which implied criticism of New Deal aims and legislation, will have little If any effect. The demonstrated solidarity of business is being used by the president's conservative advisers to in- y/fluenee mm. But his liberal advisers Ll are using the fiasco aspects of the s Rhow to convince him that the little Telioiv.s knoi^cven less than the big fellows about problems of economics and government In the large. Government action to mnke loans available for industry was being planned before the guests arrived nnd this recommendation will be heeded. Urging the strengthen- in 1 * and enforcement of monopoly laws was right down the administration alley. Curiously enough it came from a gathering vociferously resentful against the Ickes and Jackson Emu-monopoly speeches. Prom the various group conferences came several recommendations in conflict with those of other groups. One group demanded prompt balancing of the budget and another suggested a $10,000,000,000 transcontinental highway spending Program. One group demanded a samiitax and another argued against ''•'''Most such differences were irorie'd out by the group which for•1 puilaled final recommendations. W. N'urse Cafile Too v Men who had never seen or heard of each other were suspicious of each other and often adopted a "who-the-hell-are-you?" attitude toward anyone wlio seemed tryine to assert leadership. They were suspicious of fancied administration "stacking" efforts, of the big New York delegation, of imagined "efforts of large business elements to control. Sending invitations lo men whc had written letters to Ihe White House proved a poor method of selection, it brought in numerous crackpots and crackpots usually are vocal. One invitation went to a man In a psychiatric clinic. He wasn't allowed out without a nurse. So he got an Invitation for the nurse nnd she also was listed as a delegate. Arriving here, the patient sought to see Roosevelt. Tlic President was busy so the patient left town, insisting he would have nothing to ' Jo with "those 900 nuts." Another man loudly charged at a genera! conference session that the whole show was an "insane asylum." That was what most of the correspondents thought. Nove! Terminology Never before had New Dealer.' heard 'the "anti-Sherman trusl laws," "monolistic practices," the "undisturbed profits tax." the "labor relaxation act" and "leek ol pcichasing power" denounced from a public platform ns such. ."Satan has got hold of this meeting!" one delegate kept exclaiming. "What delegation is he on?" demanded another delegate, bristling at the news. And the chief bouncer was head of the local police "radical squad,'' long practiced in roughly handling bcmis and hunger marchers.
