As a Insil- UT of praclicnl pulilics, it has lu o|icr- ale through a honle ol' .smiill oll'ice- lioldcrs and a small group of leaders, with a few financial supporters in Hie background. Once in a while il happens that this parly machinery will travel in unu direction while the threat mass of the pi-'oplo' aro (nivoliiiK the other way. When that happens, tin.- party can do one of just two things; it can change its direction, or it can pass out ol' existence. It almost looks as if the. Republican party today were facing such a situation. * • • To l;e sure, there have linen landslide elections in this country before. From 1920 Uu'on^i 1928, Uic Democrats .suffered a scries of crushing reverses—to revive and return in triumph in 1932. Hut what has happened to tile Grand Old Party is something else again. The people have been through four very hard years. These years not only uroughl much sull'ering mid hardship to many people; they made a great many people profoundly dissatisfied with the past and highly distrustful of the future. The cJfeds, l.-r now, arc obvious. OUT OUR WAY The people. are no longer content to lie wooed in the old phrases, nor do they fear proposals which arc- new and untried. They want somebody, somehow to do. something that will make a repetition of the recent disaster impossible. * * * There we have lh« explanation ol' the current landslide. Most of the lU'jmblican leaders let themselves appear in the position of those who offer nothing but criticism. No policy \vns dH'crcd—q'xccp't,) by implication, the policy of returning to the old ways. Since the overwhelming mass of iho people were going in the oilier direction, we got a landslide. Now when a nation gets into a mood like oiii-s, it may go on and do something great and line—or it may run right into a deep ditch. It is precisely for Hint reason that a revival of the Republican party is so greatly needed. There is ti place for an intelligent and aggressive conservative party—a party to speak for those who feel that we may go too fast in our journey toward a new social order and who do not J'eel that the depression has made all 'of mir old institutions worthless. The Kepublican party can perform that function; but only il! it heeds the warning of the election, adjusts itself to (lie •lumper of Uie people and skips trying to swim directly against the current. —Unite (.'attoii. Meraj for a Gangster SliiU'8 which provide capita) punishment for the crime of murder usually have a law under which a jury convicting a man of lirsl dugree murder can add to iLs verdict a recommendation for mercy. Such a recoimneiida- Muii prevents the death penally, making life imprisonment mandatory. A provision of I hat kind is essential. Hill the things juries do with it arc sometimes very hard to nmlcrsLund. A jury in Toledo, U., recently tried " big shot gangster. He WHS 'accused of having directed the killing of lour "(her gangsters, in typi^i gangland style. The jury found him guiity—Ijut recommended mercy. Offhand, one would think a gangster the last person to de.sen-e such a recommendation, tie was either guilty of the murder or not guilty. If not guilty, hu deserved acquittal; if guilty, it is hard to think of any reason why (.lie Jury should go out of its way to extend leniency to him. !
