There arc 3,300 students in the High School all of the time while the others--557--go there for cooking, sewing, manual training, physical education and music. The overcrowded condition is becoming more serious each year, the superintendent pointed out, and directed attention to the new law which in two years will make the compulsory attendance age 18 years.

' When questioned by Federal agents he insisted his name was Lewis, despite the fingerprint idcnti- cation. Finally, however, he admitted his identity and made the confession. When he reaches Korristown, he will be brought before Miss Griffin for further identification, Pennsylvania authorities said. She previously identified him as the slayer through rogues gallery photographs. The youth's identity was first revealed by J. Edgar Hoover, director of the F. B. I. at Washington. Hoover said Bowers had been hunted by 11 enforcement agencies throughout the cast since the slaying and assault.

In fact his appointment was a direct result of insistent demands on the Governor's office from sportsmen's organizations all over the State/ For many years Mr. Reid has been active in conservation and sportsmen's organizations.

To a certain extent, Kc tries to meet this opposition half-way by pointing out that "no reasonable person seeks a complete uniformity in wages in every part of the United States, nor docs any reasonable person seek an immediate and drastic change from the lowest pay to the highest pay." But, at best, Mr. Roose\elt knows the strength and character of the opposition to the minimum wage bill that has twice now been thrust back | to committee in the House of Representatives. He strives lo pacify labor's opposition as well as capital's, but it remains to be seen whether an entirely new bill isn't necessary in order to win converts to his cause. Tho most important revelation in the message is the President's declaration that he believes a goal of a hundrcd-billion-dollar income is possible and that it can be attained by redistribution of existing income. The political aspects of the speech can be brushed to one side, including the studied disavowal of the interpretation which had been widely placed on the Jackson-Ickes outbursts. It is in the economics of the President's speech that the fallacies arc to be found. Mr. Roosevelt, for instance, thinks a total purchasing power incro.ii-e can come by merely rearranging the income so that the lower brackets get more. He does not show how and where tho increased volume ol transactions must come from, out ol which higher taxes are to be paid and higher purchasing power is to be created. This is still the nubbin of the problem. He evidently despairs of getting an increased nationa income out of an enlarged foreign trade because he pointedly refers to the way "foreign nations, eager lo FORMER FRICK OFFICIAL DIES IN COLORADO Giles B.

Where then is Ihe increased purchasing power to come from? The notion that price-fixing by large industries has prevented a rise in national income through a forcing upward of pi ices and a conscquen consumer resistance would sounc more plausible if business had within its control all the ingredients which enter the price structure. The big gcst single item as a whole in the American price stiucture is labor Collective bargaining or collective power has introduced new factor against which bu.sine^s men have no fought with economic facts, but the} have too often accepted and passe it on to the public as the least costly way to meet the new monopoly o organized power of groups in fixing the price of labor rationally. Th Administration's assumption is tha there is a big spread between cost, b production and selling price, and ye the Prcj.idcnt in his address says: "Capital is essential. Rcasonabl earnings on capital are essential." The implication of the whole mcs sage is that the power of capital ha been misused either through price fixing or that there has been a sor of sabotage through .the "selfish sus pension of the employment of capi tal." Here Mr. Roosevelt ventures on t strange ground. Nobody has bee able to prove the thesis he champ ions. There are no facts on whic to base the charge that, if busines had been unselfish, prices woul have been low. For the truth is no body can prove that labor has bee unselfish, either. What can be proved is that America has had neither a "planned economy" or "a regulated economy," nor even a "competitive economy," but an economy pressed on all sides I by all kinds of controls, such as costs, freight l (l other items or indiicotly fiom forces over winch the price- making bubiness man h,i; no control' at all. j Mr. Roosevelt appeals for coopcra- I tion between capital and l.ibor and between all elements in the community. It is a patriotic and well- ntcrvention of government. We arc rilting slowly toward some governmental controls that may represent a ross between fascism and demo- racy.
