Decline Shown by Glass industry "Demand for most glass products laving failed thus far in February to hold to the levels established in January, there has been some decline in production," the American Glass Review states. "Both shipments and production, however, persist above the average for the corresponding weeks last year. The outlook is reported encouiagmg, being based largely on hopes of more seasonable weather and greater consumer activity. ; Tbe decline in the first half of February effected the volume glass products, especially window glass and glass containers. Pressed and blown glassware, on the other hand, is holding firm in both shipments and production." Mrs. Mantle Tait Dies. Mrs. Maude Ankney Tait died Tuesday in a Detroit, Mich., hospital.

SCOTT Recovery, NoJ Reform, Now Adminisirafion's Theme r Says Hopkins Continued from Page One. increase business. "From the point of view of business, the President's policy has a special interest, in *hat it aims at restoration of Business health through increase of. business activity. 'Trices can be raised only so much, expenses can be cut only so far; the answer is found in volume. "That is- the significance of the President's quota of an 80 billion dol- la'- annual income. It is in no sense an argument lor a permanent unbalancing of the Federal budget. It is an argument based on the realization the budget can be balanced and the debt retained out of taxes coming from this increased National income; rather than substantially increasing taxes at this time or reducing necessary expenditures." "If I were to state our position on Government spending in relation to private profits, it would be this--a responsibility of Government with aespect to the health of business is to make sure that business as a whole is properly sustained." Hopkins said that one ot the substantial avenue; for private capital in the near future can be the field of public utilities, now t/iat there is "peace" between the Government and the private utilities in the Tennessee Valley. "This being the case, it is extremely important that there be ci meeting of minds between the utilities and the Government relative to the appropriate spheres of action of Government on the one hand, and privately owned utilities on the other. "I believe that electricity should be in the home of every family. "The rules under which that electric power is to be generated and dis- tiibuted--the ( place of Government in the whole vast enterprise are questions that surely can be resolved." In discussing the small business man, Hopkins said that for many years, steel was thought of as being the most reliable barometer of trade. "But today, we have whal js perhaps a better guide--the operations of the so-called small business men. In cities and towns and villnges the hundreds ot thousands of small enterprises constitute the very backbone of our National industrial and economic life Upon the combined thinking,and planning of these men depends to a large degree the prosperity and welfare of America." Hopkins prefaced a brief diicussion of foreign trade by saying t i a t th" reciprocal trade treaties negotiated by Secretniy of State fuU Dro\id 5 "an admirable frame-work lor the extension of our foie'gn commerce." "We must recognize that today foreign trade is being used by some countries as a vehic-Ie to support political and cultural penetration. "Unless we acquiesce to such penetration we must be prepared to mee. quality, Quant»ty and price on such a basis as to get the business. "Competition of that character is a cherished tradition of American businesss, and I suspect we have both the talent and energy to apply it in the new setting of the international scheme." Hopkins "aid that events all over the worM are iticngtherung oay by Communion for Christian Mothers. The Christian Mothers will receive Holy Communion in a body at the 7 o'clock mass Sunday morning at the Immaculate Conception Church. day the President's prediction that this generation has "a rcndezious with destiny." "What tile American people hold in their hands today is the destiny of our democratic way of life," he said. "In this tradition there are values and forces and possibilities which cannot be measured in any system of business accounting. "I arn referring to faith, to love of country, to the realistic dream of a still greater Nation which can--if we will jt so--find through mutuality and fair play a prosperity and happiness that will be the marvel of the world. "Such a nation might in fact be an example that would lead the world back to sanity and peace." Hopkins said that lack of confidence on the part of business men has been as real a deterrent to restored business health as "any we have to deal with." "It is not surprising that business confidence has been affected by the events of the past decade," he said. "Economic ^developments alone were sufficient to disturb the sleep of any business men. Add to that the revolutionary developments in other cc"ntries--add to that the legislative forms and new Government activities and you have the reason why many people have lost their confidence. "And yet today there are lew who are not glad that this great program of social reform is on the statute books. "That laws had to be passed in a short period is regrettable, but that was the price we paid for the past when previous administrations sold the Nation short on long overdue social legislation. "Is it not, therefore, better to have a program of reform substantially completed than to have to look forward to important changes not begun."
