A few even came from abroad, but none from Russia, be it stated! The Hon.

Charles Trevelyan. formerly a member of the Labor Cabinet, sent the End Poverty League a 10-pound note, together with a beautiful letter.

From Naples came a cablegram saying that the Cumean Sibyl predicted yl Perhaps she will explain what she meant Early In the year a group of intellectuals had signed a manifesto in favor of our EPIC movement.

There was doubt in our campaign committee as to the wisdom o.f quoting outside opinions; Californlans might resent it as meddling. But we printed this endorsement and the enemy press left it strictly alone. Signed by Intellectuals The signers were: Lewis Browne, Porter Emerson Browne, Stuart Chase, Clarence S. Darrow.

Woodward. My friend Mencken indulged In his customary 'kidding." Mencken claims that I have believed more things than any other man in the world, and by listing number of perfectly obvious things which I believe, and some others which I used to believe, and some which all intelligent men except Mencken believe, he managed to compile quite a list. His article was taken up and featured by the reactionary press of California. In a second article Mencken declared tthat California political affairs were so rotten that he' would vote for me anyhow; but I never saw that in any California newspaper! When I was In New York, Heywood Broun told me that he might come out to write up the last three weeks of the cam palgn.

Is one of those bright Broadway lads who take nothing seriously, unless it be the cut of their trousers and color of their ties.

During mv last day in San Fran Cisco, Pegler called up and asked to see me.

I tried to answer according to hia own point of view; I had started from zero, and by my own unaided efforts had made myself the most widely-read of living writers; in many European countries I was more widely read than any native writer In that country; I had Deen inai in Germany until Hitler burned my books. I invited Mr. Pegler to come over to the Auditorium and see what the crowd thought about me; but he had a dinner engagement, and no time for political meetings.

He went away and wrote up the scene me and my friends in the hotel room. He continued to write about us I didn't have time to read it all. but mv clipping buri-au kept sending it; I believe he stayed with us every nay ror a coupie oi weens. Of course, he made me Into a "guy," and mv friends the same. For example, there waa Hjalmar Rutsbeck, author of "Alaska Man's Luck," one of the grandest true stories over penned.

Whether de liberately or just out of carelessness, Pegler transformed him Into Mr. Utzebeck, which, of course, finished him right there. My friend "Hans" is a grandson of all the Vikings, and could have taken Pegler. in his mighty arms and broken him backwards if he wanted to. But he didn't want to, because he is a soul all wrapped up In the idea of co-operation.

PHILl, Fine Arts Contests Attracts Throng From All Over Country Philadelphia's Welsh population yesterday observed the 16-century-old Eisteddfod as men, women and children sang, played and recited poetry. The Eisteddfod a contest of skill in song and music was held in the First Baptist Church, 17th and San-som Each contestant is judged upon his performance of assigned selections either of music or poetry. Kipling's "LEnvoi" both in the original English and in a Welsh translation, was a favorite recitation.

Voice and instrumental solos, quartette selections essays and chorus comprised the re mainder of the contest. At the close, both contestants and audience joined in singing the ancient Welsh national anthem "Hen Wlad Fv Nhadau" Wales, Land of My Fathers. William R. Hughes, of Bangor, was honorary president of the Eisteddfod. Adjudicators who selected the winners were Rev.

Dr. Teiflon Richards, of Scranton; William Ifor Jones, professor of music at the University of New Jersey, and Marjorie Penney, of Philadelphia. The Eisteddfod is one of the most ancient cultural institutions in western civilization. It originated among the Welsh in the fourth century and has been continued almo.it yearlv since then.

Then he was taken on by Subsistence Homesteads, and sent to the far South to explain co-operative production. Now he was helping with EPIC, and body-guarding me about the streets of San Francisco, and had just handed me an outline of a project; for the organization of our EPIC system, the result of a year's atudy.

And here was this sporting man from Broadway making him into a "guy." The telephone rang, next day. Pegler wanted a few items of Information, and to another of my friends, a business man forcibly retired by the depres-. slon. he said: "That waa a swell bunch of fellows I met last night and I wish I was so situated that I could write whqt I really think about them." Well it is a mystery to me what the, Srripps-Howard newspapers can pay to a man that Is more valuable to him than his own self-respect. On the perfectly tailored coat front of Mr.

West-brook Pegler I pin a large and shiny brass check and bid him wear It for the rest of his days. I have aaid much against the newspapers. I ought in fairness to record that the magazines of the United Statea showed themselves entirely independent of the California plutocracy. They gave the news about the EPIC movement. They gave it fairly and intelligently, and they gave lt to the whole country.

Literary Digest Aids Three or fur days before, the primary election the Literary Digest appeared on the- news stands with my portrait on the front cover and an excellent account of. the EPIC plan inside. It was a terrible thing for the Creel people and they got busy forthwith and the Literary Digest disappeared off the stands. Apparently every copy of it was bought up; our people were offering as high as 50 cents for one. But that was the last of that.

Three weeks or so later came Liberty with an article from my pen. telling what 1 intended to do If elected. The announcement of this article occupied the front cover of Liberty, and they sent half a million copies into California. Those copies were bought up but not by the public After that came a flood of publications. The Nation and the New Republic had several articles and editorials.

Moley's magazine. Today, had an article describing our movement, in the same issue which contained. Moley's attack upon us. The editorial took the front page in the newspapers, but I never saw the article mentioned. Article by Davenport Collier's published a long account of our movement by Walter Davenport.

He descrlibed one of our EPIC meetings, and it wasn't ours at all, but a meeting of the Utopian Society in the Hollywood Bowl. Our meetings didn't have all those picturesque features. But I forgave Mr. Davenport because he finished 'the article with a page or ao telHn- the aims of EPIC. Esquire published a clever article by Frank Scully, and followed It after the election by a tribute from Theodore Dreiser.

The Literary Digest gave mo a thousand words in which to explain my purposes, and so did Macfadden in his new magazine, Macfadden's Weekly. My old physical culture friend stated that the EPIC plan was very bad, but that I would make a good governor; 1 thought the voters would find that somewhat difficult to figure out. Real America had an article, and Common Sense, edited by Alfred Bingham, interpreted our movement month $tcr month to its readers. Unity and the Christian Century also defended us gallantly. Of course, there was one magazine which is never carried along by any Ked tide; the -grandmother of all Tories, the "Saturday Kvenlng Tost," denounced us In editorials and ridiculed ns cleverly In raftoons.

I have already told about the George Creel article, "Ltopla but that didn't appear until the fight was over. The great newspapers of the country also reported the battle, mostly according to their prejudices. The New York Times gets its California storiea from George P. West, of the San Francisco News, and Chapin Hall, of the Los Angeles Times. West, who used to be a civil liberties man.

has become a tired liberal, and talked to me sadly about his lack of faith, and the inevitability of Fascism in America. In his writings he did his best to equal the Los Angeles Times In depreciation of our movement: but Chapin Hall ran Clean away from him In the last couple of weeks when he sent to the New York Times a story about the Communists supporting us in California.

BOOKS ON OUR TABLE By Herschel Brickell Perhaps I ought to be ashamed for breaking a release date on, the very last day of the year.

There are about six books to be reviewed on Wednesday, which ought to be excuse enough. The first important book of; the new year is Rexford Guy Tugwell's "The Battle Democracy," to be published to-'morrow by the Columbia University Press. It is made up largely of Mr. 1 1 speeches and stray writings, Herschel BrlckeU and is therefore less Important than it mifiht have been if Mr. 'Tugwell had sat down to write a book ex plaining' his position and answering tha charges that he is either a Communist or a Fascist.

But at the same time the essence of his political faith is to be had from the pleasant persuasive pages of a well-made volume, printed on good paper and easily read, and the essence is, I believe, his Insistence that economics is not an exact sci ence, ana mai we musi proii-eu solution of the new problems of our own Dy me memou ui trial and errrsr. You will find Mr. Tugwell saying of. the T.V.A. project, for example, that he thinks if has only one chance in five to be successful, but that he stilt believes it worth trying, regardless of the large cost in- -vtrlved.

i'YoU will -find him insisting that instead of being either a Fascist or a Communist, he is an ardent believer in, democracy, which he thinks can be saved by intelligent governmental control of natural resources and business. Campaign Material In a sense most of the stuff in the book is campaign material, and reminds me very much as I read it of some of President Roosevelt's speeches when he "was running for ofllce. They sounded well, but didn't really cut very deep or say very much. I thing the greatest fallacy in Mr. Tugwell'a book one 1 couldn't quite get past, no matter how reasonably he talked in his well-bred manner-Is.

his apparent supposition that the program of the present Administration is to which the country is completely "and definitely committed. As a political prophet, my principal claim to distinction is that I am usually wrong. I think. Mr. Tugwell is safe in assuming- another term for the Democrats, but after that? As the Spaniards say, Dios lo sabe.

Tugwell, it seems to me, makes too little allowance for the mood of repentance in which Mr. Roosovelt found the country. he is sure that we have embarked upon a great and noble and epoch-making which he summarize aa giving us all the opportunity for a richer life, and he believes the futvire, property handled, holds that opportunity. The range of the subjects treated in his book is wide; it goes all the way from a talk to a group of women on the advantages of wine drinking both to society and to American; vitlculturlsts, to a technical discussion of erosion, and the best methoda for checking it. The social responsibility of the research worker is discussed, there is talk of tha- protection of the consumer in a discussion of pure food and drugs legislation, and there are pen pictures of this country as it will look with its face lifted by the New Deal.

The social aims of the New Deal are thus stated in the' last article, "Relief and Reconstruction." What is demanded of us in America today Is the making over of the Institutions controlled by and operated for; the benefit of the few, so that regardless of their control, they shall be operated for the benefit of the many. In all this there is no thought of need to change the individual so that he may conform to some pattern or be fitted into some Industrial scheme about to be created. the Old Order describes as "rugged individualism" meant the regimentation of the many for the benefit of the few. The social mission of the New Deal has a some what higher standard of Individual ism It believes in freeing the many BROAD 4 484 Xf.l 69 i -MH.
