No Inflation The strong stand, which President Roosevelt has taken with respect to balancing the federal budget next year should dispel the fears of any - who have doubted that lie would have • the courage to halt reflation before •_ it turned into inflation. It is not an easy Ihinji to return lo methods of economy after a period in which spending has been encouraged for its own sake—for the alimu- lating effect of the money which it forced inlo circulation as much as for 1 the purposes for which it was spent— but the president has Uie power and the prestige to do it. Naturally there will be involved the • abandonment of programs and projects, perhaps-worthy in every sense, upon which viindi'i^adniinislrativG officials, coitercssnieh ^ii'nd Cgrpupj; <$' citizens have set their hcsks. They.' should not make the lask harder'.bj', 1 lighting for appropriations which' the; budget does not pertnit. . s " There will • also perhaps be a noticeable reaction in sonic lines of bus,ine.'iS i an,'l employment from the reduced" flow of public money. Here will be an opportunity for those' who Imvc been contending that fear of inflation has retarded unsinoss activity; I to prove their point. Jf business has been waiting for a balanced federal budget it should accept the president's message of yesterday as a signal lo go ahead. " "* •••"'=• ' Why Should Uncle Pay For Memorials? i They arc having a good deal of trouble in Washington these days about the proposed memorial to Thomas • Jefferson. Congress is all set to put some. $3,000.000 of the people's money into the thing, but at that point agreement ceases. Some people protest that the chohen design looks like a cross between the Parthenon and a big city railroad station; others, that the Japanese cherry trees will have to be torn down if it is built; still others, that undue favoritism was shown in the choice of an architect. And while the battle rages around Ihtwe issues, it would be most refreshing if someone should get up in Con- OUT OUR WAY gross and inquire why the thing should be built at all. Washington is knee-deep in 'memorials right now, and what it will look like' -when another half century of memorial-building has passed is a bit terrifying to think about. And although Jefferson's is one of the groat names in American history, it is still a question whether the government has any eall to put up n trackless Grand Central Terminal in his honor. We have today a government that is floating uneasily around on a long- unbalanced budget. It is trying desperately to Have money wherever it can. (Well, theoretically it is, anyhow.) Why wouldn't this $3,000,000 be n good item to start on? We have this whole business of memorials wrong-end lo, most yf the time. A memorial is supposed to stand for an outpouring of admiration and love on the part of the cilixcns. But a memorial built by the government may stand for none of those things; on the other hand, it may simply moan that someone in the administration has pushed tlie idea through an obedient Congress. If we want a memorial to Jefferson —-if his fellow countrymen revere his memory srj much that they would like to see it immortalized in pillared marble along the banks of the Potomac- why not pass Uie hat a'mong the eager citizens- and raise the money that wijy? , " •~A memorial'financed in that manner would 'mean'something. It would indicate that the American people really thought enough of Jefferson -to dig down, in their pockets and put up 'Ythe dough for a tribute lo him.. "It , ^woukl be', accompanied by a publicity • campaign" wliiclr might have the excellent effect of causing some of us out what Jeflcrson,.really stood 'for and what his ideas about freedom, and democracy really were. Furthermore, it would relieve the , federal treasury of one more strain. H would bo a step, if only a small one, in the direction of sane federal financing.: H is not too late for Congress to back-track on thi$ Jefferson memorial. Jefferson's incmory might be much better served if it would do so. 21, 103? I am the dean of Die College of Inconsistency. I hereby confer a degree on Mr. Justice Roberts. —U. S.
