HONDAv, DECEMBER si, 1934 u.y cotmran SEWS OF ME Vital Issues Of a Few, Months Ago Pass Quickly Into Background. KV RODNEY IH1TCHKK WASHINGTON. — Looking back over 1934. us Ls considered per- mlssible nl this season, one Is struck by certain Inescapable conclusions which might never occur tu anybody who didn't take that look. The lessons to be^ drawn from 1934 as U wns lived In Washington are: . , . 1. So Jijaiiy tilings happened so rapidly thai one tends lo dale them way oil back in some oilier year. The acceleration of events is constant. That's .why. though pu may now boast a memory i goes back two or three ;, you /nay soon be able to remember only the most recent two or three days. 2. No end of things happened which seemed tremendously important and .significant at the time, but now don't seem to have made 'the least bit of difference. 3. Thai second point, fortun ately, doesn't seem to apply lo everything. Other lessons might be cited but to do .so would only start drguments. Dollar Juggling Futile To most of us here, the devaluation of the. dollar to 59 cent? seems to have happened back, in 1921 or some such time, but it was really only last January. That was either going to bring us back to prosperity or plunge us over the brink of chaos, but Roosevelt, is-still sore at Professor Warren because so few of us were evci able to notice any eiTects. Russia sent us ah ambassador and Roosevelt obtained tariff treaty powers, both of whicl events meant a great expnnsloy of foreign trade—ior which we're still scanning the horizon. The year began wilh Ihe administration, on ihtjj-jipol in tile Weirlon collective bargaining case and apparently'-forced to become hard-boiled about Section T-/1 The year ended with the administration on the same spot. KJrhrealened steel and automobile - strikes were settled and in the next . two or three months they'll have to be settled again. Herd's the W>Hd -and %vliat a planet! Everything is out of joint.
