By NICHOLAS ROOSEVELT WASHINGTON, Sept. 30.--When Senator Carter Glass, Lewis Douglas, Herbert Hoover and the supreme court of the United States are all in accord that the new deal is trying to effect drastic changes in the American form of government it is futile to pretend that this is not so. It is therefore pertinent to inquire what these changes are and whether they are desirable -- l e t a l o n e whether they are constitutional. What should the republican policy be with respect to them? U n d e r 1 y ing most of the new deal acts is the paternalistic central Nicholas Roosevelt. theory of a government. Under this theory power is to be concentrated in the hands of the president at the expense not only of the state but of congress. Insofar as the supreme court can nullify this process many new dealers wish to see the courts' right to interpret the constitution curtailed. Would Change System. In short, new dealers are seeking to discard the carefully developed system of checks and balances which is the product of 150 years of American political experience based on centuries of Anglo-Saxon background. They want a strongly centralized government in place of the the loosely knit federal system which we have not developed. "Why not make such a change?" say many people in good faith. New economic and social conditions, they tell us, demand new political methods. The answer is, in the first place that the mere assertion tf the . premise that new conditions demand new political machinery does not necessarily mean that our pre-1932 political system is outmoded. Even were it to be proved that new machinery is needed it is essential to examine what the new deal program offers in place of what we had and then to see what we would have to give up in exchange for the supposed benefits of the new system.

PRESIDENT SAYS INDUSTRY MUST SPEED UP HIRING Proposes Nevada Power Line at Dedication of Boulder Dam. BOULDER CITX, Nev., Sept. 30. (/PJ--On the site of Boulder dam. built here with $165,000,000 government funds, President Roosevelt told private industry today it must take over more rapidly the finding of jobs for America's unemployed. In dedicating the huge power, flood control and irrigation dam on turbulent Colorado river, the president cited it as an example of useful government work, but declared federal projects were desirable chiefly to "throw in the clutch and start the wheels." Mr. Roosevelt said: Signs of Effect. "It is a simple fact that government spending is already beginning o show definite signs of i.ta effect n consumer spending; that the put- ing of people to work by the gov- rnment has put other people to vork through private employment, nd that in two years and a half ve have come to the point where trivate industry must bear the prin- ipal responsibility of keeping the irocesses of greater employment moving forward with accelerated speed." Mr. Roosevelt declared the public vorks expenditures by the federal and lesser branches of government had left the credit of government 'stronger and safer than at any ime in the past six years." He proposed a state power line torn this project as a "yardstick" o measure the cost of power hroughout the United States. Discusses "Vardstick." In discussing the power "yard- itick," Mr. Roosevelt stated: "It is my belief that the government should proceed to lay down the rst yardstick from this great )ower plant in the form of a state ower line, assisted in its financing jy the government, and tapping the vonderful natural resources of southern Nevada." The president strongly defended the countless other federal projects of smaller nature now underway hrough the rapid fire jobs making works progress administration. Pointing to the vast use of Boulder dam in preventing floods, irri- ating soil and providing power, he asked, "Can we say that a five foot Brushwood dam across the headwaters of an arroyo, and costing only a millionth part of Boulder dam, is an undesirable project or a .vaste of money ?" On Safer Basis. "With it all," he continued, "with work proceeding in every one of the morn than three thousand counties in the United States, the actual credit of government agencies is on a stronger and safer basis than at any time in the past six years. Many states have actually improved their financial position in the past two years. Municipal tax receipt? are being paid when the taxes fal! due and tax arrearages are steadily declining." Proudly detailing the far reaching purpose of h u m a n benefit hoped for from the new dam, Mr Roosevelt reiterated his determination to complete similar undertakings in the other three corners of the country--the Tennessee valley experiment already underway in the southeast; the grand Coulee dam project nearing completion in the northwest, and the proposed St Lawrence waterways development although he did not specify the lat ter three proposals.

Sept. 30. /P-Secretary Ickes, presiding at the dedication of Boulder dam today, defended changing the name from "Hoover dam" on the contention it was too vast a project to "carry the name of any living man." He gave major credit for pushing through the project to Senator Hiram Johnson of California. "It. has been well said," Ickcs stated, "that if this dam should bear the name of any living person, then it should be christened Johnson dam. "I may say, however, that Senator Johnson shares the belief that this great engineering achievement s-hould not carry the name of any living man b u t , on the contrary, should be baptised with a designation a.s bold and characteristic and imagination stirring as the dam it- LINER GROUNDED OFF JAMAICA IN WAKE OF STORM Bermuda Alarmed as It Awaits Approaching Hurricane.
