Creed And Depression Senator James Coumis •' comes closer to the out-and-out radical position tlian hu rcali/es in assiu"- >ing the cause for Ihc present Ijusi- ness depression. Asked who .was responsible for Die depression, he remarked that while he ...did not know who the Ktiilly individ- .uitls might be, ho knew very well what the underlying criuse wan— tin•' restrained greed. ' This is coming cjose to, stopping over ^-'the line into tho licltl of Uiu Socialists 'and the Conimunisls. It is one of the , basic tenets of their creed. And we .'can agree with it without in any way adopting . socialism or communism. •"* The radical declares thai we shall ^"never be happy until we change our 'economic system. The present system, lie asserts, was built for the bcnelit of private profit. It sbn'os only the greedy; it promotes greed, makes it the only-' -mainspring of human endeavor. Consequently, he says, the ills that greed brings cannot be removed until the system is changed. Right now the rnost remarkable thing in American life is the way in which people who have no use for either socialism or communism are beginning to accept at least u part of this vicw- -;;• • DOint. ; Senator Couzens — who, with 30 mil• -lions, is not apt to turn "red" on us i. overnight — excoriates the moving force ' ! of greed. 'Henry Ford, equally far rc- ! moved from the isms, says that one i i. A of the chief contests in industry to' i'J (lay is between ownership and maiiage: merit; between those whose first interest is in making prolits and those whose first interest is in making filings. decade, In Del roil, for example, the "strongarm men" who were hired to guard gamblers got their heads together and organized a clique to kidnap the very men they were supposed to guard. In other cities the ranki of professional gunmen probably furnish many recruits for the kidnapers. However, the problem is far from insoluble. Hncrgclic and courageous police work will nearly always break it up. Detroit proved that, about a year ago. Any other city can do the same. The liidnnper is a dangerous outlaw, but he docs not occupy u very strong position. The Kidnapers ~ ". Thcj kidnaper seems lo have put on a -- revival in American city life during the -past few years. Until comparatively •? recently, kidnaping was a comparalivc- .7 -ly rare crime; lately, however, one can i . hardly pick up a newspaper without '..„...reading of some citizen who has been 3^T_abducted and held for ransom. The cause probably traces directly • back to the racketeering circles that have come into existence in the past Ihc Price of Collon Referring lo HID often ivp:.ited statement by the American CoHon shippers Association and the cotton trade generally that cotton and wheat have declined In price Blua- li:c oriianl/a- llon of the Farm Hoard, II Is needless to point out that we urc In the mUUt of out 1 o[ the worst business depressions or panics that the world has ever seen, and thai all products and commodities whose production Is nol completely controlled arc oiitrcrlng a similar ftUe— some of [hem much worse (hail cotlon and wheat. Indeed, one of the thief complaints of the opposition Is lhat the price of American cotton and wheat lias been held above world price and therefore lo that extent bus diverted consumption from our products in favor of those of other commies. Uul for the activities of the Farm Uoard and the co-operatives It is generally believed Ihc prices ol cotton and wheat would have been materially lower than they mo today. Indeed, the argument of the .speculators is that the dancer of Hie holdings ol the Cotton Stabilization Corporation being plated on the nmrkcl is a menace to tho existing price. If the, possibility of ultimately ulnclng this cotlon on the market is ground for fear, then certainly the actual selling of the cotton would bring about Ih? lulOHmcnl of such fears.

There's one man. at least, who puls himself a step forward every backward step he' takes. A New York woman suggests a "traffic dance" ns a means ot avoiding death and Injury. The only trouble Is that it is liable lo make a "liil" with the motorists. The cruiser Chlcajo. which is soon to become the flagship of the U. S. licet, has it black goat named Al Caiwiic for mascot. A black sheep might have been more appropriate. !f KN^-W-.rjV.Ao^M'^'rtJv.; ; ' -\ •-. (•-•-'->*- ~~"\^.'''. : . "I (icm'l seem to be improving any, MnUVe.
