C. <UJE>— Th* text of President Roosevelt's speech Monday "night follows: After the adjournment of the historical special session of the congress five weeks ago I purposely refrained from addressing you for two very good reasons. ; First, 1 think that we all wanted the opportunity of a little quiet thot to examine and assimilate in a mental picture the crowding events of the 100 days which has been devoted to the starting of the wheels of the new deal. Secondly, I wanted a few weeks in which to set up the new administrative (Organization and to see the first fruits of our careful planning. Fundamentals of Recovery . I think it will Interest you if I set forth the fundamentals of the planning for national recovery; and this I am very certain will make it abundantly clear to you that all of the proposals and all of the legislation since the fourth day of March have not been just a collection of haphazard schemes but rather the orderly component parts of a connected and logical whole. Lon^ before inauguration day I became convinced that Individual effort and local effort and even disjointed federal effort had failed and of necessity would fail and, therefore, that a rounded leadership by the federal government had become a necessity both of theory and <f fact. Such leadership, however, had its beginning in preserving and strengthening the credit of the United States government, because without that, no leadership was a possibility. For yearg the government had not lived within its income. The immediate taek was to bring our regular expenseS^within our revenues. That has been done. Sound Leans and Repayment It may seem inconsistent fcjr a government to cut down its regular expenses and at the same time borrow and to spend billions for an emergency. But It is not inconsistent because a 1 ,rge portion of the emergency money had been paid out in the form of sound loans which will be repaid to the treasury over a period of years; and to cover :he rest of the emergency money we have imposed taxes to pay the interest and the installments on thr.t part of the debt So you will sec that we have kept our credit good. We have built a granite foundation in a period of confusion. That foundation of the federal credit stand there broad and sure. It is the base of the whole recovery plan. Then came the part of the problem that concerned the credit of the individual citizens themselves. You and I know of the banking crisis and of the great danger to the savings if our people. On Mar. 6 every national bank was closed. One month later 90 per cent of the deposits in the national banks had been made available to the depositors. Today only about 5 per cent of the deposits in national banks are still tied up. Credit of Individual The condition relating to state banks, while not quite so good 01 a percentage basis, is showing a steady reduction in the total of frozen deposits— a result much better than we had expected three months ago. The problem of the credit of the individual was made, more difficult because of another fact. The dollar was a different dollar from the one with which the average debt had b€«n incurred. For-this reason large numbers of people were actually losing possession of and title- to their farms and homes. All of you know the financial steps which have been taken to correct this inequality. In addition the home loan act, the farm loan act • and the bankruptcy act were passed. It was a rital necessity to restore purchasing power by reducing the debt and interest charges upon our people, but while we" were helping people to save their credit it was at the same time absolutely essential to do something about the physical needs of hundreds of thousands who were in dire straits at that very moment 300,000 Young Men Municipal and state aid were being stretched to the limit. We appropriated hair a billion dollars to supplement their efforts and in addition, as you know, we have put 300.000 young men into practical and useful work in our forests and to prevent flood and soil erosion. The wages they earn are going in greater part to the support of the nearly one million people who constitute their families. Public Works Program In th:i same classification we can properly place tlie great public works program running to a total of over three billion dollars— to be used for highways and ships and flood prevention and inland navigation and thousands of self-sustaining state and municipal im- provaments. Two points should be made clear in the alloting and administration of these projects— first, we are using the utmost care to choose labor creating quick acting, useful proiects. avoiding the smell of the pork barrel; and secondly, we are hoping that at least half of the money will come back to the government from projects which will nry for themselves over a period of years. "More Lasting Prosperity" Thus far I have spoken primarily of -lie foundation stones— the measures that, were necessary to re-establish credit and to head people in he opposite direction by preventing distress and providing as much work rs possible thru governmental agencies. Now 1 come to the links which will build us ft more lasting prosperity. I have said that w»» cannot attain that in a nation half boom and half broke. If all of our ponplo have work and folr .vagos and fair profits, tlicy rnn miy tho products of "''• noighburs, nrd business is O'V* "Two Great Barrlrrs" Ri.l H you take away llx> and the profit* of half of them, business it only half as good. It doesn't help much If the fortunate half is very >rosp«rou»— the best way Is for every body to be reasonably prosperous. For many years the two great barriers to a normal pro§perlt> have been low farm prices and the creeping paralysis of unemployment. These factors have cut the purchasing power of the country In half. Promised action, congress did its part when it passed the farm and the industrial recovery acts. Today we are putting these two acts to Work and they will work if people understand their plain objectives. "Adequate Farm Priest" First, the farm act: It is based on the fact that the purchasing power of nearly half our population depends on adequate prices for farm products. We have been producing more of some crops than we consume or can sell "in a depressed world market. The cure is not to produce so much. Without our help the fanners cannot get together and cut production, and the farm bill gives them a method of bringing their production down to a reasonable level and of obtaining reasonable prices for their crops. I have'clear- ly stated that this method Is in a sense experimental, but so far as we have gone we have reason to believe that it will produce good results. Cites "Tht Final Step" It is obvious that If we can greatly increase the purchasing power of the tens of millions of our. people who make a living from farming and the distribution of farm crops, we will greatly increase the consumption of those, goods which are turned out by industry- Thai brings me to the final step —bringing back industry along sound lines. Last autumn, on several occasions, I expressed my faitt that we can make possible by democratic self-discipline In industry genera] increases in wages and shortening of hours sufficient to enable industry to 'pay its own workers enoyfh to let those workers buy and use th, things that their labor produces. "Co-operative Action" This can be done if we permit and encourage cooperative action in industry, because it is obvious that without united action a f,. j w selfish men in each competitive group will pay starvation wagss and insist on long hours of work. Others in that group must either follow suit or close up shop. We have seen the result of action of that kind in the continuing descent into the economic hell of the last four years. Wages and Hours There Is a clear way to reverse that process: If. all employers in each "competitive group agree to pay their workers the same wages— reasonable wages — and require the same hours— reasonable hours" — then higher wages and shorter hours will hurt no employer. Moreover, such r.ction is better for the employer than tmemplo)'- ment and low' wages, because it makes more buyers for Ms product. That' te"the • simple Tdea which" is the very heart of "the indiistriarre- covery "act On 'the Tiasis of this simple principle of everybody doing things together, we are starting out on the nationwide attack on unemployment. It will succeed if our people understand it— in the big Industries, m the little shops, -in the great cities and in the. small villages. . •'..••'" These is nothing complicated about it and.there is nothing particularly new' in the principle. It goes back to the basic,idea, cf society arid.'of the nation itself that people acting in a group can accomplish ihinss wh'ch no individual acting alone, could even hope to bring about. Child Labor Abolished Here is an example. In the cotton textile Icode and in other agreements already signed, child labor has been "abolished. That makes me pe'rso'hally- happier than any other one thing with which I .have been connected since I came to Washington". In the textile industry '-— an industry which came to me spontans- ously and with" a splendid cooperation as 'soon as the recovery act was signed— child labo;- was an old evil. But no employer acting alone was able to wipe it out. If one employer tried it. or if one state tried it. the costs of operation rose so .Ligh that it was impossible to compete with the employers or states which had failed to act. "Went Out in Flash" The .moment the recovery act was passed, this monstrous thing which neither opinion nor law could reach thru years of effort went out in a flash. As a British editorial put it, we did more under a code in one day than they in England had been able to do under the common law in 85 years of effort. I use this incident, my friends, not to boast of what has already been done but to point the way to you for even greater cooperative efforts this summer and autumn. We are not going thru another winter like the lasi. I doubt If ever any people so bravely and cheerfully endured season half so bit- tor. We cannot ask America to continue to fane such needless hard- hips. "Time For Courageous Action" It is time for courageous action, and the recovery bill gives us the means to conquer unemployment with exactly the same weapon that we have used to strike down child Irbor. The proposition is simply this; If all employfr?. will act together to shorten hours and raisp WHROS ran put people back lo work No employer will suffer, because HIP rplntlvf level of pompptitl"* cost will ndvanrp hy Hie sunu rpn( for f»l! TV't If my r^naJd^v ahU- proup shotiM Ing op shirk, thl* great opportunity will pass us by aod w* will g<* Into another desperate waiter. This must not fcap- Flood or Approval We 'iave sent out to all employ* ers an agreement which is the result of weeks of consultation. This agreement checks against the voluntary codes of nearly all the large industries which have already been submitted. This blanket agreement carries the unanimous approval of the three boards'whicb. I have appointed to advise & this, boards representing the great leaders in labor, in industry, and in social service. The agreement has already brot a flood of approval from every state, and from so wide a cross- section of the common calling of Industry that I know it is fair for all "Reasonable and Just" It is a plan— deliberate, reasonable and just— Intended to piit into effect at once the most Important of the broad principles which are being established, industry by Industry, thru codes. Naturally, it take.; a good deal of organizing and a great many hearings and many months to get these codes perfected and signed, and we cannot wait for all of them 40 go thru. The blanket agreemnts, however, ^-hich I am sending to every employer, will start the wheels turning now, and not six months from now. "Opinion and - . . Conscience" There are, of course, men, a few of them who might thwart this great common purpose by seeking selfish advantage. There are adequate penalties In the law, but I am now asking the cooperation that comes from opinion and from conscience. These are the only instruments we shall use to this great summer offensive against unemployinent. But we shall use them to the limit to protect the willing from the la*and to m»ke the plan succeed. "Eadfle of Honor" In war. In the gloom Of night attack, soldiers wear i bright badge on their shoulders to be sure that comrade's 1o not fire on comrades. On that principle, those who cooperate in th!s program must know each other' at a glaiice. That is why we have provided a badge of honor for this purpose, a simple design with a legend, "We do our part," and I ask that aJl U'ose who join with me shall display that ba.dse prominently. It Is essential to our purpose. Already all the greot. basic industries have come forward willingly with proposed codrs. and In these codes they accept the principles leading to mass re-employment. "Richest Field" But, important as is this heart- ;ning demonstration, the richest field for results is among the smr.l) "mployers, those whose coatribu tion will give new work from one to 10 people. These smaller employers are indeed a vital .part, of the backbone of the country, and th* success of our plan lies tersely in their hzftuls. Already the telegrams and letters are pouring into the white house — messages from empiovers who «<k 'hat H>elr names be placed on this specfal roll of honor. They represent greet corporations end com- ipnie-s. and partnerships and individuals. v .,' '"'• Plea; to Ernpleyeri "-. 'I. 'ask that .•even- before the dates set In the agreements which we have sent out, the employers of * Je country who have not already done so — the big follows and the little fellows — shall at once write or telegraph to me personally at the white house, expressing their intention of going thru with the plan, And it" "is iny; purpose to keep posted 'In" the- postoffice of every town, a roll of honor of all those who join with me. I want to- take this occasion to say to the 24. governors who are now in conference in California. that nothing thus far has helped in strengthening this great movement more than their resolutions adopted at the very outset of their meeting, giving this plan their instant and unanimous approval, and pledging to support it it> their states. "Word of Encouragement" To the men and wonieis whose lives have been darkened by the fact or the fear of unemployment. I am justified in saying a word of encouragement because the code and the agreements already approved, or about to be passed upon, prove that the plan does raise wages, and that it does put people back to work. You can "look on every employer who adopts the plan as one who Is doing Iiis part, and those employers deserve well of everyone who works for a living. It will be clear to you, as it is to me, that while the shirking employer may undeisell his competitor, the saving he thus makes is made at the expense of his country's welfare. "Workers Have Rights" While we are making this great common effort there should be no discord and dispute. This is no time to cavil or to question the standard set by this universal agreement. It is time for patience and understanding and cooperation. The workers of this country have rights under this law which can- j not be taken from them, and nobody will be permitted to whittle them away but, on the other hand, no aggression is now necessary to attain those rights. The whole country will be united to get them for you. The principle that apples to the employers ap plies to the workers as well, and T ask you workert to cooperate In the sani'- spirit. "By Common Consent" When Andrew Jacksou, "Old Hickory," died, someone asked. "will he go to heaven," and the answer was, "he will if he wants to." If i a.n asked whether the American people wlll*pult themselves out of this depression, 1 answer, "they will If they want to." The essence of the plan is « universal limitation of hours of work per week for any individual by common consent, nnd a unlvcrs il pnymrnt of wnsrs nlr>vo a mini mum, also by cnmmrn Ex-Kaiser's Son Fat and Fifty Prince Kitol Krledrlch. second son of the former Kaiser \\'il, helm, doesn't carry miich viiijjlit in flcrmaft affairs these days, but he's growing much heavier. Uiis n«w portrnit slio>vs. The prince, who Is active "in the Steel ll«lniet or- sanitation, recently, celebrated his fiftieth birthday I cannot guarantee th'e success of this nationwide plan, but the people of this country can guarantee its success. I have no faith in "cure- alls" but I believe that w* can greatly influence economic forces. "Strength of Unified Action" I have no sysipathy with the professional economists who. insist that things must run their course and that human agencies ca« have no influence on economic ills. One reason IB that 1 happen to know that professional economists have changed their definition of economic laws every five er 10 years for a very long time, but I do have faith, and retain faith, in the strength of common purpose, and in the strength of unified action taken by the people. "Patriotism and Humanity" That is why I am describing to you the simple purposes and the solid foundation Upon which our program of recovery is built That is why I am asking the employers of the nation to sign this common covenant with mt— to »NIN $«v*n hundred sounds of binder twine, bellertd by Ames police to b* the balance of the loot taken from the Ntpter elevator of the Ants Graisi and Coal company, the night of July *, was recovered Monday from * cornfield on the Charles Van Patter farm, a mile south of Am«s.

Bill Bennett and Dan Peterson are now in the Boone county Jail awaiting action of the trend jury, charged with breaking and enter- Ing the elevator. They were arrested after a farmer turned over to the Ames police 50 pounds of twine he said he bought from the men late at night. SCOUT GROUP FORMED 8HELDAHL—A boy scout group has bten organized here with the Rev. G. C. Swain at scoutmaster. The initial meeting was held last Monday evening at the parsonage. tt-YIAft-OLO OUT AUSTIN, Tex. <l'Jt>— A old debt was paid by th« »tat« *f Texas thii year when the legist* ture appropriated 11,400 to sett)* a claim by Mlt's Annie Cook, Austin.
