1 Famous Amer ican colonizer MA Texas MUNICIPAL BONDS IN COMEBAcR Tne' T&cals attorney general's department during the , fllfc<ft'yeai* ending August 31 approved municipal bonds iMfthg' total of $59,030,678—the largest sum in any year gififee the boom period of 1929-30. l*Wo things are indicated in these figures. One is tnkt'p6p]ile or various, communities are feeling more certain of business and the future. The second is that jfflvefiimeht grants have made it profitable to vote bonds ift'ordei--to receive the liberal aid. Refinancing of out- gtfendihg obligations to save interest also is popular. Ita't& have been lowered by as much as 2 per cent. PWA has offered as high as 45 per cent on projects in grants. The value of these gifts has been lessened somewhat by the labor provisions involved, which make some inefficiency inevitable in certain kinds of work. The University of Texas experts say that the position of Texas county and district road bonds has been strengthened by state participation in retirement of some of these obligations. The stale lias paid about 93 millions to take over part of the interest and sinking fiind requirements on state designated highways. Gray county has been assisted on highway 33. Slate participation through one cent of the gasoline tax was 33 1-3 per cent in 1934 and 50 per cent in 1935, and there are indications that this will rise to 75 per cent in 1936. Proposals are being furthered to increase such participation. Cooperation of bond-holders in releasing bonds for refinancing has been notably good. THE NEW DEAL IN WASH1NOTOW -BY RODNEY DUTOHII _ NEA Service Staff Correspondent WASHINGTON—Some clay, perhaps before election, President Roosevelt will have to admit to the country that business activity has returned to normal, but that there are still six to eight million unemployed. He will have to explain that the efficiency of private industry, expressing itself in a saving of la'bor costs, has largely brought about that condition. And doubtless add that until industry can think up some way of absorbing those millions, it will have to pay for their subsistence through taxes. This problem—call it technological unemployment or th'e increased productivity per man per hour, which gained enormously during the depression—is one of the big- g'est stories in the country. The highest officials often discuss it privately, though only an occasional labor leader talks of it publicly. The most scientific chart of unemployment yet devised by the government (it's kept secret for the time being) indicates that 800;000 more pei-sons were unemployed in June, 1935, than in June, 1934. True, this counts in' some 300,000 of "new population available for employment" and about as many more displaced from road building and other public works, but— Im that same period, the Federal Reserve index of manufacturing .production rose from 83 to 86, which you might well suppose would have meant re-employment of several hundred thousand men. Remember that this was in the NRA period, before codes were canceled and em- tiloyers began to increase hours. v * * * * The answer is that workers, at an ever-accelerating rate, are being dsiplaced by better management; elimi- riation of the least efficient plants and equipment—and tHe least efficient labor—pressure through' sweatshop, stretchout and speedup methods, new machinery and ji'ew inventions. This goes on in agriculture, mining, transportation, and other fields, as well as in the factories. Dr. Isador Luibin is now in an official position as com- riiisisoner of labor statistics and isn't talking publicly about the matter any more. But in 1932 he told a Seriate committee that even if business reached its 1929 level, there would still be at least 5,000,000 unemployed. . * * * * Productivity has since increasedi and nobody is anticipating any early arrival at the 1929 industrial production index figure, which was 119 as against the recent 86. From every front come reports of new inventions certain to displace human labor. Washington this fall will watch closely the performance of the mechanical cotton picker, ballyhooecl as able to pick 1,000 pounds an hour as against a man's 10 pounds, a potential instrument of unemployment for hundreds of thousands. Everyone is talking of pre-fabricated houses—and some warn of what it will do to building trades workers. New single-unit trains threaten the jdbs of shopmen, switchmen, brakemen, and firemen. High-line logging operations threaten the jobs of thousands of northwest lumbermen. , * '* , NRA halted the process awhile through spreading work by shortening hours and by protecting obsolete plants. But now the chains are off. Unless something no one can now foresee happens to absorb millions of workers, this problem holds the sprouting seeds of future political issues, future economic progress, future depressions and the future, if any, of national economic planning.

CONSTITUTIONAL FIGHT LIKELY TO CONTINUE IN STATE CAPITAL BY CHARLES E. SIMONS AUSTIN, Sept. 11 W)—The timeworn state constitution was made safe against submission of revisions at special legislature sessions at the Aug. 24' election but the tiotf Siffl. art *W* dAe gWflft regWdM as conterlas thfe' cehsttttftl&n should tie amendable to ctiarige at the will of the people. They assert chafigifig times and conditions tnake It Imperative that the constitution Be flexible if the state is to progress goverhmentally from the horse and buggy dayj. The other theory is based on a belief that the constitution as written dealt solely with fundamentals and that fundamentals never change. They argue the state would have been better off had it never resorted to the practice of amending its basic law. What was a principle of government when the constitution was drafted should be a principle now, they say. Failure to adopt the amendment authorizing special sessions to submit constitutional changes closed the avenue by which the state hoped to be able to make provision for relief. The constitution now prohibits appropriation of public funds to private persons or corporations. Despite the uncertainty in the relief situation the "futid&mentallsts" regard that inhibition as highly desirable and believe the framers of the constitution had such a situation in mind when they wrote that provision. One argument against the amendment was that it would permit a minority to decide constitutional changes!. If amendments were submitted at special sessions they would be voted on, usually, at special elections in "off" years when poll tax payments were light. In support of this contention they point to the vote of more than 1,000,000 cast in the last democratic primary while at the recent special election prohibition repeal attracted only about 470,000. Some members of this group not only would limit submission of amendments to regular sessions but would require that changes be voted on only at general electons. • A third school gradually is entering the picture. It advocates tossing the crazy quilt constitution into the discard and writing a new one in the light of modern trends and experience.
