D A Y A T C A P I T A L A S I N T E R P R E T E D BY DAVID LAWRENCE Continued from Page Four party and not by a small group of politicians who pull the strings. The people of Pennsylvania will have an opportunity to repudiate this effort to I tell thorn whom they miy nominate, for it looks as if Gifford Pinchoti veteran progressive, will be the Republican nominee for Governor--an indication, indeed, that the Repubhcins arc ready in the Keystone State to acccptl progressive leadership / What rmkes the White House conference so depressing is the fict that an Administration which calls itself "liberal' and lenders who cliim to represent the highest purposes of a democracy have so little confidence in the capacity of the people to do their own choosing of candidates that they are anxious to put foith a handpicked slate behind which the Federal steam roller can be applied It h bad enough for a group of politicians to attempt to control the nominating machinery of a political party in the state or the Nation, but it Is much worse when that same small group has in its hinds a broad power over government funds nnd the distribution of political ofllces_ Pennsylvania affords an example of n thoroughly regimented political entity. The State Dcmocntlc organ- izitlon has merely copied there the highly distasteful methods of the old Republican pirty. Indeed, some of the old Republican henchmen arc now key men in the local Democratic organizations, showing that the people are being misled by the same bunch of professionals thnt exploited them under Republican rule If the New Deil hid not made such pretensions of virtue and if it had not posed as the "people's government," the spectacle of White House conference to decide w hat nominee 1 ; shall go on the party ticket in various stites would not be so hard to swallow. The decision of the Roosevelt Administration, however, to cngiKe in all the primary fights nnd select favorites, ns now sctms probable, judging by what Is happening with respect to the gubcr- mtorinl nominations in Pcnnsylvnnli and New York, respectively, is clcir proof that politics has raised Its selfish banner over the New Deal, tnni- forming it, for all practical purposes, into the inmc old deal of cstcr- v c n r Thrte nix Names to Mudenls WATERLOO. la , Fcb 2fl --Amelia Earhirt, Chnrles A Lindbergh and Henry Ford were the best known personalities to students, at the Gates Business College here, a quir rc- vcnlcd They were asked to Identify 100 prominent person.'
