SiwrTH'S IDEA. The Register has a sort of sneaking admiration for Alfred E. Smith, late Dempcratic candidate for Pres. ident. It believes he Is one of the smartest of the Democratic leaders. But at that he is not very smart! Called before a Senate committee recently to give his views on the depression and how to remedy it the ex-governor had no better cure for unemployment than a great ^government bond issue.'the prbceeiis to be used in public building construction to create jobs, "Cut out the red tape," he said, ' "and go back and build- buildings like we did- cantonments, — overnight." Well, for one thing the public probably has not forgotten how r<Tkless!y its money was squander- in building those cantonments. • For another thing, if ihey were built "over night" where would be jobs the next day? For a third thing, vliat will be done with these overnight buildings? And for a four.^ tiling, if huge; sums of money are called from private bank accounts to iluanoe government bond issues how is private industry ever going to get started? , Gov. Smith was very emphatic and vi'ry sound in his testimony when touching upon the currency que -. tion. He specially .protested sharply against anything approaching fiat nwney. "It is like giving a sick man a hypodermic," he said. "It takes a stronger shot next time.*' , , A:nd yet he appeals for fiat employment,—employment; that is not Justified by industrial tieed and the f Ini^ncing pf which wpuld be a deadly di'aln on an already multi-raided public treasury. The reasonable extension of pub-, lie works that really are needed, such as'highways, bridges and really useful public buildings, has long been recognized as a legitimate method of reducing unemployment in periods of depression. Some three hundred millions of Fedeirai luads will probably be expended along that line during the present fiscal year. But that is vastly different from thb proposal of Gov. Sttilth and other Democratic leaders to put bilt enormous goveirnment bond issues and then "cut! red tape" In the spending of the money upon public works regardless of Whether they are heeded. Every economist worthy of the name agrees ti^at the very first requisite to business recovery in the United States is" a balanced l^ederal budget. Gov. smith's'proposal would make a balanced budget-wholly out of the question! And that is why we feelobUged to say that with all his smartness he is not very smart at that! State Senate has made a favorable report upon the Oyler scales tax bijl and the liieasure is going to be given a day for consideration. As t originally introduced the bill called, for a tax of 2 per cent on all retail sales including the pnxluct of utilities, and was to continue in effect 'until repealed. • The Senate committee aratended It by reducing the rate to one per cent on al^ retaU sales!except on raw products, and one Half of one per cent on the output of public utilities, and limited the life of the meafiure to two years, and it is in that form that It donbt- less will pass If it passes at all. Vfpea this bill was first introduced early in the session it was not given serious consideration, members of the Legislature feeling that It would be very generally unpopular. Belief that it would be unpopular probably has hot changed, but as time has passe<l it has begiin to look as if it would become necessary. With times as they are now it Is apparent that the new income tax will not produce ithe revenue that was expected ftbm it, and it is almost equally apparent that the ordinary' property tax, under the ordinary rate, will not produce revenue enough to meet state expenses. The sales tax, therefore, seem^ likely to be resorted to as an emergency measure to tide the state over the shallows of the next two years. A CONTRAST. "The President's proclamation should receive the whole-hearted support and cooperation of every citizen." Thus spoke Herbert Hoover, private citizen, in comment upon President Roosevelt's proclamation declaring a bank holiday. One cannot help wondering what a different story these past four years would have had to tell if the political opponents of President Hoover had given him the wholehearted support he now calls upon Ihe people to give to his successor. The contrast between the attitude of Mr. Hoover and of Republicans generally toward President Roosevelt and the words and acts of President JEfoover's political opponents toward him during the bitter years when he was making liis battle, almost alone, for the public welfare, is too striking to pass without corn- men},. President Hoover was as clearly entitled to the support of the Congress and the people regardless of party as President Roosevelt i for he: was fighting for the public welfare in the face of a great emergency just as Roosevelt is. It is to the everlasting discredit of Democratic party leaders that he did not have it. ' rm TOLA DAILYjREglSTERrTHy^SPAY EyEm^ THE mEPaANTT ^ATEQRqJQfr stop maUng new loans, and to call in the old ones as rapidly' as jpossi- ble. It must become "itqiild"; thait is it mu4 stop being a V&vk and become a safe deposit box. Under such circumstances It is perfectly apparent what Tpust happen to business. It most contract its {<(ll>eratlons because its normal supply of credit is cut off. That throwis men out of work and hurts thie whole community. The banking system of the country generally is sound and is able tp meet an the legitimate 'demands of its depositors and of business. But if depositors on a large scale lose their beads and take theh- money ovit of the banks, then busmess must suffw correspondingly. Om: business and our standard of living are organized ori a basis involving extensive use of bank credit. If we want to Jive on the barter sj'stem of our forefathers we can force ourselves to that level by taking our money out of the banks. But do we really want to do that? • —ITEMS— * • * • * • • * « • * * • « a bout the Goats, and t^ie walked in and ihe Goats put . The unspeakable folly of crime has another illustration in the case of the .two boys held for murder in 'Douglas county, One of these boys is 17 years old, the other is 22. They held up a filling station, got a trifling sum of money, then In order t> make a quick get-away they attempted to take possession of an automobile a young, man was driving. He objected and they killed him. Now one of them has pleaded guilty to murder and the other, after trial, doubtless will be convicted as an accessory. Both of them probably will go to the penitentiary for life. At least one of tlicm may thank his lucky staris that the death penalty is not in force in * Kansas. They tried to get money without v.-crkins for it. They will spend the rest of their lives working but will get no money. They will have no, freedom, no fandlies, no anything that makes-life worth living. The most astounding i thin? about rrime is ilie^o«y-or it.; ^ • • CHEERS FOR HOOVER. Paragraph from a private letter: As I told Herbert Hoover good-bye at the station Saturday I felt as though my heart and hopes were going with liim. He looks fine and were a bigger! broader smile than I haveseen for many months. A great and enthusiastic crowd was there to see him off and it did his old heart good. I actually believe he got more applause at the station than Roo.'se- velt got at the swearing in." PUBLIC SENTIMENT. Abraham* LJncoln: "Public sentiment Is eve)fythhig. With public sentiment nothing can fail; ^thout it nothing canj succeed. Consequently he who molds public sentiment gpes deeper tJian he who enacts statutes or pronounces decisions. He makes statiites and decisions pos^- ble or impossible to execute.'* "If I had any money in that bank I sure would take a gun and go in and get It," a man on an lola street was overheard to say the other day. Thej remark sufficiently explahis why the man who made it does not Have money in that bank or in any Other. Men of that type of mind db not accumulate money enough to need a bank. Talking abou|; thiese piping times of peace;. Rolls plymer thtoks a good old nerye-quietlng war would tte a welcome alternative. - Let's see: At noon today ithe New Deal was just four days old. From O^er Papei ^~T WHAT BANKS ARE FOB. K. C. Star: At a time Uke t^is it is Important to consider just,what banks are for. They are not safe deposit boxes Into which money Is packed! away so I that all depositors can get It out at the same time if |he moipd seizes them, TJiey are essential instruments for carrying on the nation's bxlslness. Experience has demonstrated that ordinarily a baiik needs to hold only a, small pari; o^ Its deposits in the shape of; currency. It tries to kfep a large share of tl!em out'at work. A mercliaiit mikes a loan for sixty days to flnantse the purchase of goods. The 'goods come in, .V\e sells them and pay* off the loan. In nofi mal times that sort of thing is constantly going pn. There is plenty of money in the bant io -meet ail the ordinary demands of, the depositors and at the same time to keep business going. But if ^suddenly many of the dO' positors become panicky and rush to the bank to take out their money,' 'WhWTiaplJensv The bank has "to NEOSHO VALLEY and UNION VnJoh School Notes.

NO pjriaplPRODUCTION To the Editor: Since your publication and edl- toriai' reaction to • my recent letter tQ the fqrum. T wish to continue the discu^on. Of the i^ore than 100 assumed causes of the depression which have been, tabulate^ <^ ^ plotted by the,press and consequently accepted by the pul^lic is overproduction. This mistaken theoi^ can quickly be blown to pieces by a study of production records. In 1930 com production was the lowest in 29 years yet com prices fell badly in that year. Wheat production per capita in 1932 w'as the lowest since 1S66. Cotton production also was very low but did not result In a price rally. From 1839 to 1900, production of foqd crops IhjaKosed 9,?6 per cent per year; fzom' 1901 to 1914 decreased 0.2 per cent per year; tioni 1915 ,tO| 1926 decreased .85 per cent or .25 per cent pei- year when adjusted for changes in the number of consuming livestock. Turning to the manufactured .commodities we find that at no jttme in history have we any evidence of a sudden tacreaee in the output of tptal goods per capiiia. There may be sudden spurts in one Industw but never a sudden Ip- icrea^ ia all indii^j^. I'hus we find ho e\iderice to support the theory that overproduction has in any-j inartner been a cause of the depression.. Thrqughout history a "decline .due to mtmitary causes iias always becjn: jaqpularly attributed to pver- productlon without an attempt to find the real cause. Having thus disposed of the overproduction theory we come to the ireal reason for the depression and the one which I discussed in my previous letter, namely, the relation between commodities and currency. •The unpleasant conditions of the last ftv days are but the beglmiing .unless a readjustment of these relations are brought about. To continue bliniiiJy without the readjustment as proposed by organized agri- cult^ will forever the spirit of thrift and frugality that has ever distinguished the! common people of the United States. The fairest way to distribute the burden of readjustment is through deUbcrate (inflation If you must call it that) revaluation of the dollar in relation to commodities. Why does the Register maintain that, -The price of I commodities docs not depend upon the relatipn of the supply of money in the country to those commodities"? Is not gold (the,basis of our. monetarj'system* in demand so that it is very valuable and thus hard to secure for the purchase of commodities resulting in underconsumption, unemploy- pient, stagnation, depression, and panic? Tou overlook the fact that with Oiir present monetary syatcm based pn gold, with; gold subject to supply and demand, that it is impossible itor us to avoid re-occurrmg boom *nd depression periods. It may take HL mefe terrible panic than the present to wake up our people to the fact that this system as proposed iis sound, efficient, and logicai but that time is sure to come. With your approval. I 6 *iall discuss the : part gold is playing in our present trouble more thcH -oughly at a later date. HENRY R. WALTER. lola, Kansas. -TOLA. KANSAS M'l', ",!",' .. ',..1.
