THE PAMPA DAILY MEWS, Pampfl, Te*ift !•.,-. OUR LAX IMMIGRATION POLICY President Roosevelt is asking for four billion dollars to look after the needs of some 3,500,000 who are now tfetetniJlbyedi He has recommended additional legisla- tifta that -will call for still greater payment for future unemployed through unemployment insurance. It is interesting in this connection to remember that ,in the fiscal years between 1922 and 1930, when we were • supposed to have set up a system of limiting immigration, we imported over 3,300,000 foreigners legally, together with an estimated 500,000 illegal entrants. About a billion of these newly imported aliens appear 'to be among our present unemployed. A large portion of the remainder has created corresponding numbers of unemployed among those already here, by taking jobs that would otherwise have gone to existing residents and citizens. By these admissions we have, therefore, created-about the same number of jobless as will be employed by this four billion dollars that we are asked to appropriate. Was this importation of foreigners necessary? During this ten year period, when we were importing so .many aliens, our own workers were being thrown out of employment by the hundred thousands. Hydraulic power installments, increased use of oil and the improvement in the steam engine had dispensed with the need of between two ami three hundred coal miners; the caterpillar digger and other machinery had taken the place of hundreds of thousands more. Our federal policy is one in which immigration of unneeded workers cannot be permitted loosely. THE NEW DEAL IN WASHINGTON -BY RODNEY DUTCHER. NEA Service Staff Correspondent WASHINGTON—It made hardly the slightest difference whether or not this nation entered the World Court. Except for a few rabid isolationists, nearly everyone in Washington agreed on that. The sound and fury in the senate over the issue was a sort of a town joke— even on Capitol Hill. But the court's defeat is a matter of grave concern to the New Dealers because of certain menacing shadows it casts before. Mr. Roosevelt, the great popular leader, is confronted by other rabble-rousers with large followings of their own. For the first time, the administration has been licked through efforts of a combination of leaders whom its members call "demagogs", "crackpots," "blatherskites," 'and similarly uncomplimentary names. It may not be the last time. * * * * There's no question, of course, that Father Coughlin, • William Randolph Hearst, and Huey Long defeated the • World Court. They aroused masses of voters to fever , heat and stirred up the pressure, the tens of thousands of telegrams which pushed Democratic senators out of the /administration ranks. Liberal New Dealers who fear Fascist tendencies in America, although conceding that entry or non-entry into the World Court was utterly unimportant, are whisper. ing that here was drummed up the same'type of nationalistic fervor which Hitler and Mussolini used so effectively in attaining power. People generally hadn't been excited about the court. But a straw man was set up and they were whipped to a . fury against it. And some New Dealers insist it gives them the creeps. 'Officials figure that "demagogs" such as Coughlin, Long, and Dr. Townsend will be encouraged to new efforts. * * * # If the vote had been forced by Friday or Saturday 'instead of being allowed to go over to Tuesday, giving Coughlin a chance to take the air, the court protocols would have been ratified. Administration leaders were over-confident and felt it would be a smart thing not to let the senate get a too early start on the administration's unpopular five-billion dollar relief bill. Now hardly anybody thinks the idea was so smart. The State Department crowd is discouraged—and its feeling is shared at the White House—because of the unquestionable hampering effect the defeat will have on Roosevelt's efforts for international co-operation and world peace. Almost any bid Roosevelt makes in that direction now Will be .met by cynical European suggestions that it doesn't mean anything, because the senate wouldn't support him. * * * * The munitions control treaty proposed by Secretary Hull, the assertion of Norman Davis at Geneva that America would "consult" with other nations in efforts to stave off war, and current moves toward a new neutrality policy designed to keep us out of war are a.11 now sjqwirroing under a wet blanket. ' . Jt all piles up into considerable irony because it's so eorrimonly admitted by detached observers that we had nothing to lose and little to gain by entering the court. -Belief that entry would be little more than a gesture fpj? good will was responsible for the lukewarmth of the fight for ratification. . The plain fact is that the administration had no idea how'txadly-it was going to feel on the morning after, . It's a good thing, we remeiriber the crippled children o,n President Roosevelt's birthday, since there's no telling what we'll do when, the president is retired. In other words, by turning down the World Court, we refuse to court the world. An English physician is curing rheumatism with injections of gold solutions. But that's out in America. We're off the gold standard, you know. T,he. man who asked $250,000 to put though, a flO,,- 0$flt,,0QQ naval contract was no piker. He knew he didn't have to be big to talk big. tt may he a good idea to put a,U the country's trans- facilities under coatroj of-the I. C. C., but how stop the truck drivers from hogging the roads? News Want Acte, Dilating The Coven Of Texas Hfctory For THE TEXAS CENTENNIAL CELEBRATION OF 1036 Chairman of the Declaration of Independence committee, George C. ChildreSs, read with fervent pride thB first draft of the declaration: "When n government has ceased to protect the lives, liberty and property of the peopte, from whom its legitimate powers are derived, and for the advancement of whose happiness it was instituted, and so far ficm being a guarantee for the enjoyment of those ines- timnb)e and inalienable rights, an instrument in the hands of evil rulers for their oppression—as a sacred obligation to—posterity abolish such government and create another—" It was done. In less than an hour, writes Colonel Gray in his diary, the declaration was received by the house, committed to a committee of the whole, reported without amendment, and unanimously adopted. General Sam Houston made a brief declamation, and the draft was accepted. "I move," said Goodrich of Washington, "that a copy of the declaration be sent to Bexar, Golind, Nacogdoches, Brazoria, San Felipe, and Natchito-ches, and that a thousand copies be printed in handbill form to be distributed among all the colonists and be sent into the United States." His motion passed, and on a committee with him to carry out th; resolution was Farmer and Byron. Refugio colonists were proud of Edward Conrad and his bounty lands resolution which passed March 17. Conrad's resolution was that land commissioners be appointed to investigate land conditions in the country, and that the records be secured by the commissioners. He also suggested giving large bounty lands to volunteers in the army, which was necessary to "conciliate the military," according to Gray. Childress was one of the most active men in the convention. He proposed several important motions: that slave trade be prevented in the republic; that no person be imprisoned for debt; that a "single star of five points, either of gold or silver, be adopted as the peculiar emblem of this republic and that every officer and soldier of the army and members of this convention, and all friends of Texas, be requested to wear it on their hats or bosoms." By noon of March 18 Washington was almost devoid of delegates. The convention had adjourned the previous day, and as rapidly as possible the men had gone back to their families. Coloney Gray wrote "their families are exposed and de- fenseless, and thousands - are moving off to the east." . .The convention had bfeen; successful. Independence had: been de- 1 clared. "We fearlessly and confidently commit the issue to the decision of the Supreme Arbiter and the destinies of nations." Meanwhile, Mexicans were besieging Texas. War was no longer a thing of the future. But there had been proclaimed that independence, the Centennial of which is to be commemorated in Texas in 1936. Another Htage Sum for Relief AUSTIN, Feb. 11.—Relief Commission nccountnnts have written checks totaling $1,559,750 for distribution as the first, installment of the month's allotment of funds to county relief administrations throughout the state. These funds will be used to pay general relief and drouth relief costs during February, but will not provide for special programs such as rural rehabilitation, student aid. emergency education and transient relief, funds for which are made available in separate checks. "At this time we are not able to say just what the tbtal allocations to counties for the month will be because the legislature has not decided how the $1,500,000 of state funds originally set aside for this month should be spent and because the national congress has not acted finally on the president's request for money," said' Acknt B. JohnSoti, state administrator. The Texas relief commission will continue to administer relief funds to the unemployable portion of the caseload as it has in the past, Mr. Johnson said. Indication were that unemployables will be cared for ifi the usual manner until federal authorities notify the state agency that federal funds will not be available for the unemployable portion of the state's caseload.
