"Shall we call this the promised land? "Or shall we continue on our way?" Saying the mental and moral horizons have been extended, he warned it would be more difficult ' t o hold to progress than it was to get started. ! "Dulled conscience,' irresponsibility and ruthless self-interest already reappear," he said.. "Such symptoms of prosperity may become portents of disaster! "Prosperity already tests the persistence o£ our progressive purpose." . i The president reminded at the start that on t h a t similar cold, forbidding-day of March, 1933, when he first took the oath, "the republic, singla-minded in anxiety, stood in spirit here." To Fulfil! Vision. "We dedicated ourselves to the fulfillment of a vision," he recalled, "to speed the time when "there would be for all the people that security and peace essential to the pursuit of happiness. ·"· "We of the republic pledged ourselves to drive from the temple o£ our ancient faith those who had profaned it; to end by action, tire. ]ess and unafraid, the stagnation and despair of that day. "We did ; those first things first. "Our covenant' with ourselves did not stop there. "Instinctively we recognized a deeper heed--the need to find through government the ' instru- : ment of our united purpose to solve for the individual the ever- rising problems of a complex civilization." Efforts Had Fallctl. Efforts to solve those problems without aid of government had Jailed, he said, because such aid was imperative "to create those moral controls over the services of science which are necessary to make science the servant instead of a ruthless master of mankind." The president said controls "over blind economic forces and blindly selfish -men"- had to be found, so _ "we refused to ' leave the problems of our common, welfare to be solved'by the winds of chance and the hurricanes of disaster." "In this," he said, "we Ameri- x cans were discovering no wholly new truth; we were writing a new chapter in our book of self-government." He concluded: To.Maintain Democracy.. "To maintain a democracy of effort requires a vast amount of patience in dealing with differing methods, a vast amount o£ humility.

"While this duty rests upon me I shall do my utmost to speak their purpose and will, seeking divine guidance to help us each and every one to give light to them that sit in darkness and to guide our feet into the way of peace." 3 Days ot Rain. , Three dreary days o£ rain left the flags and bunting along Pennsylvania avenue looking forlorn, but failed to dampen.the spirits of the tens of thousands who made the city their own. Hotels were full; many visitors slept in Pullman cars sidetracked near the capitol. The dismal weather brought no letup in the demand for the Jew thousand privileged seats on the historic capitol concourse. Long before the president, his cabinet and their families could reach there from prayer services, national guardsmen were called to keep the overflow throngs behind the lines. Attends Church First. First on the busy schedule came the- services at the "Church of Presidents" across from the executive mansion at 10 a. m. (central standard time). As on four years ago, when Mr Roosevelt visited the church before riding with President Hoover to the capitol, he asked the Rev Endieott Peabody to say the principal prayer. Mr. Roosevelt attended Groton school under Dr. Peabody and was married by him. At Mr. Roosevelt's suggestion officials limited the parade to two' hours.

MATTSON BOY'S NOTES REVEALED Seattle Paper Prints Cop of Two Messages From Kidnap Victim. TACOMA, Wash., (IP) -- Tw poignant" notes in the handwrit ing of 10 year old Charles Matt son, written to his parents from ; kidnap lair, were disclosed Wed nesday as federal agents here ap parently faced an impasse in thei search for the boy's siayer. In a copyrighted story, the Se attle Post-Intelligencer published what it said were the texts of th notes, both containing threats o death for their- young writer. Th notes, as printed In the Seattli paper, follow: ·(1)---"If you want the boy bad pay ransom let us know througl the papers have the money cai ready. Call police off, ransom paic at night you will get a phone cal where to find note. You will find 5 or 6 before we tell you where to leave the suit case, you wi! go lonely roads. If cars are trailing you we won't' contact. If our man gets killed or has to commi suicide on account of police yoi will never see the kid again. To prove he is alive this is in his handwriting. If you want to make sure he is alive at .the pay off ask us something the kid knows and we don't and we will answer on first note that tells you where to go." (2)--"Are ready to make connections and want to .know if you are getting the notes or are police keeping them from you. x x x "If you do not obey the connections will be off for keeps and remember an army of police can kill a couple of kidnapers but they will not be able to find the kid until after he is dead. "TIM TIM." FLOODS MENAGE IN SIX STATES Thousands of Acres Undei Water as Rivers Keep on Rising. By THE ASSOCIATED PKESS At least six states dug in Wednesday for protracted floods as mounting thousands o£ acres were inundated and continued rains forced several rivers still farther out. o f . their banks. · e?Tiie. ; muddy Ohio -receded in its upper stretches, through Pennsylvania and West Virginia, but rose steadily near Cairo, III. W. C. Devereaux, flood expert at Cincinnati, predicted tlie river would remain in flood stage below touis- ville, Ky.,'for three or four weeks. "With waters well over the flood stages in the Ohio basin, the prospect is distinctly unfavorable because it is on such a preliminary .situation that bad floods of late spring occur," said Meteorologist W. F. McDonald of New Orleans. Pennsylvania and West Virginia apparently were out of the danget zone. The flood area was concentrated in Ohio, Indiana, Missouri Illinois, Arkansas and Kentucky. In northeastern Arkansas and Missouri's southeastern "boot- heel," army engineers estimated the St. Francis and Black rivers had inundated 100,000 acres. About 800 workmen labored to save levees, but the St. Francis already had torn through at least eight crevasses. Fully 500 families had evacuated their homes in the vicinity of Kennett and Senalh Mo. · ' ,!·'. · Bills to Extend Iowa Farm Debt Aid Filed by Hill of Clarion DES MOINES, enator G , -R.

Since his f i r s t performance in the Val- Icc hour in December, Bergen, with " C h a r l i e McCarthy," has scored a unique success. Beriren is a ventriloquist and a one-man comedy team, with h i m s e l f a s "straight m a n" feeding the gags to Charlie, . his dummy. Ventriloquists have always, before this, b e e n classed w i t h jugglers, "Z~~; ~"~~ magicians a n d R u d y V»lle. acrobats as radio ipossibilities, because much of eir art depends on creating an usion for a visible audience. Bergen, however, working in the traditional .ventriloquist's style with fresh and spontaneous material, has been able to create in the listener's mind the picture of the vaudeville artist chatting smoothly with an almost insufferably smart dummy. Unknown to radio before Rudy Vallce's introduction, Bergen and Charlie have been inseparable for 17 years and have toured the world several times. They started their theatrical career on the old Redpath Chautauqua circuit, played the Keith-Orpheum vaudeville wheel, appeared in English music halls and starred In Swedish, at Stockholm in Rolfe's revue.

The measure extends those powers until June'30, 1939. Following the example o£ their senate colleagues earlier in the day, house democrats crushed a republican attempt to compel a complete audit of the stabilization f u n d upon its termination. The legislation was passed by the senate without even a record vote atter administration forces rejected 42 to 32, a proposal by Senator Vandenberg (R., Mich.) to demand a final accounting of the fund.
