FRIDAY, AUGUST 31, 1934 SIDE GLANCES By George Clark We Must Create Jobs jor Jobless Relief Harry L. Hopkins' promise Ibid Hie federal government must and will evolve a distinctively American method of dealing with the stupendous problem of unemployment relief, and will not be content to copy some European system, is a bright bit of good news. If anything has been made clear by post-war European cxireriences in this field, it is that jusl to keep the jobless men from starving is not enough. That has to be done, of course, in simple humanity. But unless unemployment relief goes beyond that, it simply creates a neyv problem without solving the old onn. England's long years of Ihu dole illustrates the |H)inl. The dole has Ixx'ii a great drain on the English treasury, and it has been a feeble and back-handed way of meeting a very serious issue. It was the least that could have been done, but it was not nearly enough. * + r To under.-tand this, one need only read the comments of men \vlio have traveled across England in recent years. Unanimously, they testify to the destruction of morale which follows in the train of the dole. They litid, all across England, innumerable young men who have grown up to their late twenties without ever having been employed. By (his time, many of these young men have got'com- pletely used to this kind of life. 'Die dole keeps them from starvation and provides them with a few odd pennies for their recreation—fool- ball games, movies, a glass of beer now and then, and NU on. In many, many cases these young men have lost the desire to work. They have, never known anything but a life of iwintless idleness; it has come to seem the normal tiling to them, and the. wish to get out and stand on their own feet has atrophied and died. * » » Such young men, when they appear in large numbers, constitute one of the most tragic problems any nation can face. They arc rapidly becoming unemployable. Even the return of full prosperity would leave M\- Vill- I'il'll 111 His Own Antagonist Adolf Hitler's cll'orl lei win the hesimi of inhabitants ol Hie Saar ley i.s easily understandable. This mining area, lorn from Germany Versailles, is to hold a plebiscite in January to decide whether it shall be returned to Germany or become part of France. The plebiscite gives Hitler his first chance to fulfill his campaign promises to restore (iermany's lost territory. Ordinarily, one would assume that a pro-Ciennan vote was a foregone conclusion, the inhabitants of the Saar being largely German by hluod, language, and tradition. Yel it, is reported that many of them are hesitant about voting to return to the Heidi, llitlerism does not look altogether attractive to them. Many arc loath to vote themselves into iis grip. Once ' again, Hitler's violence and autocratic rule may deprive him uf the very prizes they were meant to gain. Meet—to Wed CURIOUS WORLD WS£ l EVE COLORING...

In the United States 27 states now have laws [or sterilization of insane, feeble-minded, and epileptic, and in some slates criminality is also included. There seems to be a great deal of difference in opinion as to inclusion of criminality, and llicrc is also much disagreement as to what types ot feeblemindedness and mental deficiency to be considered.
