The Republican party today IE in the thioes of reorganization Within it are many men who still feel as "T R." did about monopoly and about certain evils in big business operations, but they are apt to be overawed by the other men m the pirty who think the Republican party must stand or fall on orthodoxy and ultra-conservatism and give not an inch to the trend of the day because this is ridiculed as "new deal- ism " If the new policy committee could find n way to finance the Republican party by small contributions, an independence \vould be asserted thit would re-make the partj and give it a real backbone of progressivism. But the t.isk is admittedly difficult The Federal machinery and Federal funds are m Democratic hands Even Mr. Wall-ices constituents m the realm of agriculture--the county agents and county committees formed by the AAA--played a big siole, exactly as, on the other hand, 27,784 Fctfyette County Residents' State Relief Recipients on January 1 The week of 11)37 brought a furthci net increase of 531 cases in Fayctte county direct relief rolls, according to flguics made public today by Arthur W.

A total ot 002 cases were opened-579 had lost private employment, nine were taken oft the WPA and 14 for other reasons--while 71 cases were closed ot \\mch number 34 received work from private industry, 29 were added to the WPA and eight for other reasons The upwaid trend, apparent for several months, continued to reflect the cumulative effects of business recession and seasonal losses in private employment. At the same time new applications foi assistance were filed b 952 rases while on the rolls on Saturday, Jan- part m the 1930 campaign, in fact, the billions of, dollars of public money spent for agriculture in the form of direct p.ijments and benefits were themselves an influence upon rural voters, of. which they were in- tcnMvel} reminded m September and Ortobcr, 1936, by persons who had been or were on the Federal payroll Likewise, the Republicans are up against stifl competition when a labor union like the CIO can contribute out of the dues of, its members $500,000 and up'to the election of a piesidcnt who has to deal impartially with labor legislation and appointments to labor boards and yt meet uith relatively little condemnation from the "liberals" and puristi in politics who happen to be m iavor of New Deal policies The usual answer made is that it is better to take money from labor unions than from the executives of big corporations. Two wrongs, of course, do not make a single right, and the answer to the problem of how decent political parties shall be formed in America still remains a problem of interesting the common people with their five dollar bills, their quarters and dimes. When the plain people contribute nine-tenths, if not all, the campaign money--and there ought to be a law forbidding anybody or any institution from contributing more than $1,000 directly or indirectly to any campaign or party before or after an election--the ideal set forth by Mr. Wallace that both parties should "belong to Ihe people" will uary 1, were 6880 cases, representing 27,734 persons, and expcndl- turcs'Ior the \vcek jggregated 55?,20100 The week of January saw a "el m- crc isc oC G 117 cnsct (25 (i26 persons) ,_, on Uic State rolls.
