The Government Sets Up a Mighiy Task It seenr* to be ;i nice liUlc job lluil the administration lias wished on itself for the hot SUIIIIIHT moiilhs. • Donald R. llichbi'vg, v/tio lias been named to tie together nil ilu- loo.-e ends of this iiiul that iloulini; ubuut Washington, s«ys lliat the immwlifiti! task is to develop a long-ranKc I'l'u-; and when ho ij;oc,-i on to explain just what this includes, you begin to see the size of the problem. "We mu.U be looking lo the future," says 51r. Kichberg. "We must decide on the extent of government intervention, and its allocation to. different activities. \Vc must advocate our plans for public works as ii continued means of providing employment. We must work toward more permanent stabilization of industrial conditions. "Into the program of industrial self- government must be written public supervision mid participation, to prevent abuses of economic iwwer, without abusing political power." * » » Here, surely, is a prosram large enough to satisfy tin; most ambition.- 1 . And when you stop to think about it, you discover that each item offers plenty of chances to make serious mistakes. Those simple word.-, "decide on the extent of government intervention," for instance, simply mean that Mr. Richberg and his men must make up their minds on a policy that could range anywhere from complete ' individualism to a regimentation as thorough as anything seen in Italy or Kus- sia. Laying oul a permanent public work* program offers, on one side, the chance to waste vast sums annually to small purpose, and on the other the chance to extend paternalism beyond anything previously dreamed of. * * • . Stabilizing industrial conditions, and extending public supervision of indus- tral self-government, could mean state capitalism, stale socialism, or simply • the growth of a vast, cumbersome, and oppressive bureaucracy. In other words, this job of setting a program carries with it a great many chances to do the wrong thing. Yet it is a job thai cannot be sidestepped any longer. A great many things have happened in Washington in the last year. Some have been almost revolutionary in their implications. It is good to see. that they arc all to be tied tojji'tber into a comprehensive and definite program. Thus, eventually, when tin; administration goer, io the voters, the country's I ask of making a yes-or-no decision will Iw a lot .simpler. — I {nice Cation. Declining Birlhs If the American birlli rale continues to decline in the next 50 years at tin- rate recorded in the la-.! decade, the country is in for .sonic very difHcull times. Thin is the warning of Dr. Oliver M. Baker, senior economist of the HL-- parlmenl of Agriculture, in a speech in Cleveland recently, \Vi: have almost reached a stationary r-opu'iatir.n, and Dr. Uaki-r remarks that this may be a very good thing—if it, only remains .-tali iry. Hut a continued fall in the birth rate would eventually bring us to a declining imputation; and under such condition, he says, economic reactions would be .severe. The demand for farm and industrial products would progressively dwindle; rents and interest return.-i would slide steadily downward, with catastrophic cll'ecl on the whole spirit of private enterprise. It is a gloomy picture. Hut it is possible lo wonder if the declining birlh rate recently has not been, at least in part, a reflection of I he confused condition of society as a whole. Let that confusion bo straighlencd out, 4 and il is possible lliat the birth rale would begin to rise once more.
