TWO flBWBitfflBR T&S LORD IS NEAR: Psalm 34:18. .The Lord is nigh unto them that are of a broken and saveth such as be of a contrite spriit. C>i O. P, Outlook Ift Gloomy fjjrilt TllE death of Senator Huey P. Long, prospects Tf" 'for a split in the Democratic party are so remote tnat the Republican machine will undoubtedly find it diMdtiit tb raise funds except for local races. This is in sharp contrast to a recent report that big business was read£ to spend millions to back the G. O. P. if a Democratic split was in sight. , ^tli^ere has been a definite movement toward the traditional re-alignment of the parties, with definite losses to the Democrats. Mr. Roosevelt's personal and administration program cannot be entirely blamed for this. His vast personal following continues, but sectional lines and habits will inevitably reassert themselves in considerable degree. It is not the popular vote, but the electoral college vote with which Mr. Roosevelt is most concerned. The Roosevelt program has many critics from those it hail hurt and those it has disappointed because it has not hifrt some folks enough. It is radically different, even if not'basically radical. It has tested the flexibility of the Constitution and aroused among some new dealers a demand for constitutional revision. It has involved the v fcp'ending of billions for more or less poorly atimin- Mtei-ed relief. Yet, if the Republicans had control in Washington, cpuld they afford to spend less at this time? We find them now busily engaged in getting their share for the folks back home. Just as the free trade principle has b'eeri n)ore or less shelved by the Democrats, so'has the program of the G. 0. P. failed) to suggest anything better than the administration is doing. True, when a group of business men get together they 'do a groat deal of deploring and viewing with alarm," but as individuals meeting home problems they often contradict themselves by demanding more relief, mpjrg projects, and not less. Mr. Roosevelt has gone off on many tangents which he apparently will abandon. He cannot continue the pjMent"terrific rate of spending. He is preparing tojsur- reRiJer much authority—as over relief matters—to fhe states. And will the states welcome the responsibility? They will not, and a cry to high heaven will be heard. Stat'es -wish rights, not responsibilities. This attitude is responsible for much federal encroachment. there is no indication that defections in. the Democratic party, by conservatives, will be any more serious than'revolts of liberals in G. O. P. raftks. The Consti- t'ution as an issue is nearly dead unless the A. A. A. is invalidated, in which case Republicans will have a hard job''satisfying militant farmers while pursuing a "Save the Constitution" program. And while the administration is' spending billons just before the election, Mr. KOOsevelt is talking of breathing spells and warning the states'that federal spending as an emergency measure is n'early over. The President can easily show that normal expenditures are less than under Hoover. And emergency spending will die with the emergency as good business returns. So what will the G. 0. P. tricksters do unless they have an unexpected run of luck? CAPITOL CHATTER BT CHARLES E. SIMONS AUSTIN, Sept. 21 (M—No longer will highway maps of Texas drably present black lines delineating only the cardiridl road system. The highway cbWi'mlssioh has decided to pep up its road map along with beautifying' its highways and the next edition will t>6 done in four or five colors. Draftsmen are finishing the map. The federally designated highways will be shown in red. State highways will carry a different color, probably black. In addition, an effort likely will be made to show the chief enterprises in the respective sections of the state. Citrus trees would be used to fill the vacant spots .between ronds in the Rio Grande valley. Cattle and sheep and goats would adorn the western sections and grain flank the Panhandle roads. Agriculture, particularly cotton, would be depicted as the chief Industry of Central Texas while derricks mnrk the location of the East Texas oil field, the largest in the world. The back of the map, heretofore blank, will carry interesting information on the state in general and data on historic spots, such as the Alamo, San Jacinto battleground, Goliad and Gonzales. A table of distances will be printed on the reverse side. The map is expected to prove particularly useful to Centennial visitors. L. G. Plmres doesn't know when he is acting director of the public Safety department and when he Is chief of the highway' patrol. ' "I guess it would' be like this, when I'm sitting on the right side of my desk I'm the director and when I'm on the left, chief of the patrol.' But when you see me riding around oh that blue car I am the 'director. I ride in the little black one when chief of the patrol." •- —: : «> • CREPE HACKED SATIN USED EXTENSIVELY LONDON (/P)—Crepe backed satin s a reversible material which is be- ng used extensively as it is so adaptable to present fashions.

BAGPIPE MUSIC HALTS COMPLAINTS GLASGOW (/P)—The skirl of bagpipes greets all holiday trains arriving at Craigendoran Station, and there's a reason. The bagpiper, with his gay-hued kilt, was hired by canny Scottish railway officials to pipe train pas- sengers to the steamer they join at Craigendoran for points in the western highlands. Ostensibly, he's "scenery." Actually, he's a gay deceiver. For company officials found that a lively highland march makes the long Walk from train to steamer seem much shorter than it actually is. ^^™ ^JatejBjg^i *.» *i*jfr| ^L ^L ^fc'jHtttt&k'Mfeifc^-j 1 '"JUH^*-" TIH& PAMPA I||p»i^ U,*i •" v m^ei^K^R^fthlSp. i«B«. ft trasftfr Q^i.

NEA Service Staff Correspondent WASHINGTON.—It's rather a pitiful little acorn right now, the organization from which the great oak of the social security program is expected to grow. ' Aliout 25 borrowed employes in borrowed quarters—• that is all that can be seen today of an organization that is expected eventually to employ 10,000 people in administering benefits that will touch more than 16,000,000 Americans. Because the bill which was to have provided funds' was' filibustered to death as Congress closed its last session, nobody can be regularly hired by the Social Securities Board. A dozen or so employes have been borrowed from NRA, and another dozen from Edwin Witte's conrniittee on social security w-hich helped frame the plan. Unless the board's appeal to the director of the budget for funds under the emergency relief act, equal to a month's administrative expense, is granted, it's doubtful if even the salaries of Commissioners Winant, Altmyer, and Miles can be paid until Congress meets next winter and appropriates some money. Of course, they're going ahead anyway. The mail already is flooding in, stacks of it. Most of it boils down to two questions: "How about a job?" and "When do I get my pension?" The borrowed staff is hardly large enough yet even to return the simple answer that must go to all such inquiries: to the first class, "We haven't anything to use for money yet," and to the second> "Nothing doing for at least two years." # * * * Plenty of the applications for jobs come sponsored by epngressmen who were there the night the appropriation was filibustered to death, and who should know jjetter.
