"If I read the temper of our people correctly we now realize as we have never realized before our inter- depen(jlence on each other; that we cap not merely take but we must give ajs well, that if we are to go forwar^ we must move as a trained and Iqyalarm^ willing to sacrifice for the good of a conunon discipline, becausle without such discipline no progress is made, no leadership becomes effective. We are. jl know, ready and willing to submit cur lives ahd property to such discipline becaus; it. makes possible a leadership which aims at a larger gOod. This I propose to offer, pledging that the larger purposes will bind upOn us all as a sacred obligation with a unity of duty hitherto evoked only in time of armed strife. "With this pledge taken, I assume unhesitatingly the leadership of this great ^rmy, ofl'our people dedicated to a disciplined attack upon our common problems. "Action in this Image and to this end is! feasible under the form of governpent which we have inherited from our ancestors; Our cor\stl- tutlon |ls so simple and practical that it is possible always to meet extra- ordinaly heeds by changes in emphasis and arrangement without loss ofj Kisential form. That is why our cohstltutional system has proved itself the mast superbly enduring political mechanism the modern world has produced. It has met every strless of vast expansion of territory, of foreign wars, of bitter internal stifife, of world relatiiJns. "It is to be hoped that the normal balance of executive and legislative Authority may be wholly ade: quate jto meet the unprecedented task before us. But it may be that an uniirecedented demand and need I for undelayed action may call for i temporai-y departure from that nor- mf.l balance of public procedure; "I am prepared imder my constl- tutiorial duty to recommend the measures that a stricken nation in the midst of a stricken world may requir^. Thgse measures, or such other measures as the congress may build out of lis experience and wisdom, I: shall seek, within my constitutional authority, tQr<^''Bi1ng, to speedy, adoption. For Dictatorial Power. 'But in the event that the congress shall fail to take one of these two courses, and in the event that the national emergency is still critical, I shall not evade the clear course of duty that will then con^front me. I shall ask, the congress for the one remaining instrument to meet the crisis— Abroad executive power to wage a war against the emergency, as great as the power that would be given to me if we were in fact invaded by a foreign foe. "For the' reposed in me I will return the courage and the devotion that befit the time. I can do no less. "We' face the arduous days that lie be Are us in the warm courage of notional unity; with the clear consciousness of seeking old and lireclous moral values; with the clean Ratlsfactlon that comes from the .stern performance of. duty by old and young alike. We aim at the assurance of a rounded and permanent national life. "We do not distrust the future of ns.scntlal democracy. The people of the United States have not failed. In their need they have registered a mandate that they want direct viBorous'action. They have asked for dLsclpllne and direction under leadership. They have made me the nre.sent Instrument of their wishes. In the spirit of the gift I take It. "In this dedication of the nation we humbly ask the blessing of God. May He protect each and every one of us. May He guide me in the days to come."

IP YOU MISS THE RSaiSTEB CALL 197 OK 620. Young Men'a Chances TT was In March four years ago * In Tampa. Fla., that Walter Johnson spoke as follows: •T am fairly well decided on my line-up. Buddy Myer is going to play third base and I am going to use Bluege at short. I have been told by some of my friends that I am making a mistake using Bluege at short and that I should put him on second base to make a double play combination like we used to have. Gut during all the time I was on the Washington club with Bluege, I always thought that he shouW liavc been a shortstop • * • Rookie Cronin urpHERB are a lot of rookie ball players around the camp that I know nothing about. We have that young fellow, Joe Cronin, who is a possibility for phort. I don't know much about him. but I noti:ed last season from the papers that the club played its best b.all when ho was working at short. He is not a spectacular player but he must be steady, and that mcaus a whole lot." In four years Cronin not only has become the greatest shortstop in bafeball. but has taken Walter's pla^e as manager of the team. B&ttling Bluege A MONG the rookies Joe Cronin will see this year at BiloxIT^ a youngstei- from Chattanooga' named Cecil Howell Travis. He broke Into pro baseball late in 1931. Washington operative Dick Jloore sends along the word that one of the reasons Cecil wont into baseball was his failure to graduate from the Rivcrda^e, Georgia, Applied College of Barn Building after he fell off the thesis ha was preparing for his final examination. . 9* that MM It majr. Jo« Ens«l picked him up for a trial with the Lookouts in 1931 aud all Cecil did in IS games was to hit .429. Last year inflelder Travis played 15a games and hit 362.. Clark Griffith scouted him for two weeks and decided he was a coming star. Now all that Cecil has to do is to prove that he's a better third baseman than Ossie Bluege. He has a grand job ahead of him doing that, even though Engel seems sure llie 19-year-old lad is ready for the majors right now "It he can't win a regular job." says Griff, "he goes back to the minors. He's too good to be kept on the bench I for a year. It would ruin him, jiist as it ruined Jimoiy McLcod for us in 1930. Travis can hit well enough right now hut I don't know about his flelding. Joe Cronin will have to decide about that." • • * • Star Ahead of Him TTERK is Mr Cronin, on wliom Walter Johnson had to pass judgment four years ago. now about to inspect a rookie from Chattanooga and decide whether or ncit he's good/enough. Bluege remains the classiest third baseman in the league. He probably can throw better standing on his head than Travis can with both feet on the ground. Bluege's fielding gems annually call for reams of copy from sports writers While his hitting is spotty, he can drive in runs and hi.s lifetime batting average is fairly respectable. Travis may be ready for the big leagues right now. Others younger than 19 have demonstrated in their first year in the majors that they could stay. But Travis faces the task of beating out a star. With nine other teams in tho majors he probably could step in and play regularly. As It Is, he probably will have to go baek to ChatUnooga.
