CHRIST FOB ALL-ALI, FOR CHRIST Bible Thought for Today A SECRET EETBEAT: Hear my voice, O Ood, In my prayer: preserve my life. Hide me from the secret coimsel of tlie wicked.—PsaJm 64:1-2. CONGRESS ABDICATES. Ever since the' days of Magna Chart'a, when the Barons of England ; wrung from the reluctant hands of Old King John the agreement that : the representatives of the people should have the last word about the •way the monej^ of the people, paid in as taxes to the King's treasury, should be spent, no popular right has been more jealously guarded by English speaking people. The founders of this Republic; of British descent, wrote it into'our Constitution. All revenue measiu-es shall, originate in the House of Representatives and not a dollar shall be taken out of the public treasury- except in accord- jmce with act of Congress. - But the Democrats In the House of Representatives seem about to abdicate, at least bne-half of their control over Federal fjinds. They still, presumably, will rciain their ancient authority to initiatie revenue bills, and thus determine how the money is to be raised. But they are about '*o turn ,over to the President the responslbUity of' saying how: that pioney will be spent. They propose Jo authorize him to fix salaries of ipovornment employees and to wipe but all functions and activities of the Government as he may deem unnecessary. Such power as the Democrats now propose to vest in the hands of the President is the greatest ever suggested for any president in time of peace. Indeed it is doubtful if any war power ever entrusted to the President extended to so great a degree. This proposal is an abjject acknowledgment of the impotence of the legislative branch of the govem- \ ment such as our history never before has witnessed. Leaders of the House frankly admit it. Speaker Garner said: "The power has got to be given to the • executive. Congress ' either hasn't the ingenuity or the tiisposition to do it." \ The Speaker was talking about balancing the budget when he used those words. For more than a year now Congress has been trying to balance the , budget;1trying to force expenditures down to the level of income. And now the! Speaker of the House frankly acknowledges it b^s failed, admits that C<»}gress lacks, either the Ingenuity or the disposition, to do vkiat is its plain duty. :The situation is another illustration of the extent to which tlie employees of the Government are able to control the Government, Why dioesn't Congress cut salaries, or abolish functions and' activities that are not necessary, or at least can be dlspensbd with? For the simple reason that the Government employees whose salaries would be cut or whose positions, would be entirely ellmlnat- e<l, havt too much political ihflu- .enqe. Congress cannot stand the liressure these employees would be able to bring to bear upon them. Of course nobody in this country is. afraid of a Mussolini dictatorship even if this extraordinary and unprecedented power is conferred upon Mr. Roosevelt. In the first place Roosevelt is not Mussolini. In the second place the United States is I not Italy. The lesson of it is that what is ' needed in Congress is leadership i a.hd courage. That such a proposal I is seriously offered Is an evidence I oif the decadence of Congress which . the country may well contemplate \vith melancholy misgivings. THE RIGHT ATTITUDE TOWARD COOPERATIVES. The farmer who Joins i a co-operative with the idea that mere joining will immediately broaden his maricet, raise his prices and bring him prosperty, Is doomed to disappointment. When enough farmers join with the Intention of working with and for the cooperative, loyally supporting it and seeking new'members, in order to, build for the future, they will get what they are looking for. The cooperative movement is gradually bringing agriculture out of chaos. It is laying a foundation on which permanently profitable prices and good markets can be built. That must be done before any progress at all can be made, precisely as, years ago, it was done in major industries. Cooperation, then, is simply enlightened self-interest. It .isn't a qiiack panacea for all the farmers' Ills. It is akin to the treatment of a first-class surgeon who knows that whenever possible, he must get his patient in good general condition before attacking precise troubles. And the cooperative movement holds perhaps to a greater degree than we realize, the future of American farming. • .' SOLVENT AFTER ALL. Wherever two or three American citizens are gathered together these winter days each begins to tell the other how hard times are, how high taxes are and how impossible it is to pay the interest. Each has a more harrowing tale than the other and they separate at last all convinced that he is living in the worst of all possible times in the worst of all possible worlds. But liere is a singular thing: During 1932 business failures in the United States amounted to only 1..36'r of all the busmess enterprises of the country. Tliat isn't as bad as it was in the last great panic. In .1893 business failures amounted to 1.40% and In 1893 it was 1.46%. It isn't even as bad as it was in 1930 and 1931. In fact the failure of only one and one- third of all the business enterprises can-ied on in the countrj', in a year such as last year, is not so bad. At the very worst it is evident that most of the of the countiy is solvent and there is no basis for the gloomy predictions that everybody is going broke.

On nearlng the end of four years here, I regret only two votes, one tiiat helped to create the Federal Farm Board and the other one for the moratorium of a year ago. However, my greatest chagrin is that I have not been permitted to vote on any comprehensive measure that would cheapen the dollar. —Congressman W. P. Lambertsoi?. These are singular laments indeed from a man elected as a Republican. In two cases he regrets that he supported the program of a Republican President. In the third he mourns because he has had no opportunity as yet to violate a fundamental Re- pubUcan principle. ' Wilham Allen White is 65 years old. He not only admits it, but in a : nieasiu:ed. and modest way he brags ' about it. So far from being in the j "lere and yellow leaf." his life is in : the golden and mellow leaf.' Long may he wave. Last spring Senator Glass made a remark in the Senate that banlcers "hu-ed some bongressmen" to oppose bankhig legislation. Senator Nye once wrote in a letter to another Senator stating his belief that a certain Senator was receiving favors from the head of a large company in return for favors during a tariff fight. And yet when the Senate's sergeant-at-arms prirvted an article in which he said that "very few members of Congress are crooked,' the. Senate in a spasm of indignant self-righteousness up and fires him. The question naturally arises whether the reputation of Senators for veracity is so bad that nobody believes what they say about each other, and that it only becomes important when somebody else says it. From Other Papers CHEAP LAND. Parsons Sun: Farm land in Labette county was never cheaper than it is today and the man who has-money to invest can't go wrong in buying at present farm values. Recently a fairly well improved quaiter in this county sold for $7.50 an acre. Many farms are ILsted at a fraction of their actual worth. "In a few years a lot of us are going to be hiring someone to kick us around a block because we passed up tliese Labette county farms at these 1933 prices,"iKirby Barton, president of the First National bank, said recently.' He's; right. The farmer who has his land clear and isn't forced to sell is a chump if he sells out at the price, he can get in days Uke these. , Real estate has always been good property. Those who sold out farm and city property to Invest in other securities a few years ago are sorry now that they sold. Those who can buy farm land or city property at today's values will be glad in a few years that they had the good sense to buy. Columbia, Mo.—After 38 years, Claud M.
