Hopkins and Get Data for Secretary IckeS, Relief Job hnve J ust c° m - pleted a cross- country tour and are now In possession of Information on which to base the future course for management of the relief Job this winter. What their plans are, beyond the use of the funds appropriated last winter, remain confidential but without doubt the country can expect to see some very definite changes In the practices that have been followed. The New Deal was swept Into the governmental control upon the twin arches of recovery and relief. The recovery arch seems to be holding up. The relief arch, I believe, can be said to be teetering. At least that Is the conclusion that must be drawn on a set of circumstances In which billions have been spent to tide destitute persons over their distress only to leave millions of them still looking for government handouts. It Is quite apparent that Mr. Roosevelt took his two relief advisers on his western trip chiefly for the purpose, like the well-known bear, of going over the mountain to see what he could see. The word that has come back to Washington s that he saw some things that were not altogether encouraging. He found that his previous relief methods were not In high favor In the Middle iVest and on the .Pacific coast, rlence there are some changes In prospect. New Deal opposition has charac- :erlr.ed the President's vacation trip vestward as being, In part, politics. Whether this be a fact or not, anyone can recall that there Is an elec- lon In November, 1936, and that shrewd politicians begin many months In advance to oil the cam- >algn machinery and see that the pears mesh. It Is not at all unlikely hen, that while Mr. Uoosevelt was sincerely examining the relief situation and attempting to ascertain 'or himself what should be done to make the going easier for those In distress, he probably had In the mck of his mind thoughts of how :hose same people would react when they go to the polls a year hence and find his name as the Democratic Presidential nominee. • • » Some months ago Mr. Roosevelt announced with emphasis that the . Job of taking care Courting or n, e destitute Trouble IIlllst l)e turned back to the states and private charity. It was, lie said, no longer a federal proposition. A good many observers here felt at the time he made that announcement that he wns courting trouble. Those who took thht view have found their conclusions amply sup 1 ported by the facts since developed. The President, indeed, has courted trouble and It Is a species of trouble that Is going to remain with him throughout a long, hard winter Just abend. Probably he will be able to find a way out If, Indeed, a way out wns not discovered while he and Messrs. Hopkins and Ickes were on their transcontinental tour. To the average person, however, the solution Is not so apparent. That brings us to a phase of fed- pral administration, a new circumstance and .problem, confronting the nation. I describe It ns a new problem which In fact It Is when considered In the llfrlit of developments since (ho New |)i>nl (onk control. It seems to me that It ought to bo laid the Uoosevelt administration 'allml to profit by ti knowledge of what IIHS happened heretofore In the use of the dole. Just across the Atlantic has been available u splendid demonstration of whnt the dole i-iin imrl will ilo to a population. Thi> r.ritlsh K"v»rnriii!Mt" listened to the appeals of the. professional relievers and liiiinaiiilariiuis tiinl adopted a dole. It has taken that nation four years to whittle away even a part of the situation It built up for itsolf. Here Is the crux of the problem: At nny time a governmental agency lieprins to feed people, to clothe them und to provide them with UIH other necessaries of life free, by that act It Inculcates In those people—not all of them of course—a feeling that the world, and particularly their government owes them a living. A certain percentage of them Immediately become convinced that while the dole may be smaller than their weekly pay check earned IB Industry, It comes without work. In fact, it breeds laziness. * » • So, In this country now we Luivu a certain percentage of the popu- latioQ who are J ney Uon t wholly unwilling Want Jobt to work because they have found that the government will take care of them In times of stress. In con sequence, this segment of the population Is making no effort to obtain Jobs and U quite vocal In Us lam- basting of a government that will not feed its people. In addition, Information that I get from Industrial leaders, men who know what labor problems are, tell me that* a percentage of the workers whom they have taken back on the Jobs, taken them off of relief rolls, are unwilling to do their Jobs efficiently; they seek to fill In their time and Just get by, and they resent any admonitions from foremen or bosses that a certain amount of work Is required of them If they are to remain on the pay roll. Some instances have been reported even that workers of this type have replied to their employer's requests for honest labor: "We don't care. We can go back on relief." It Is a tragedy. Unfortunately, It Is going to be with us for some Arthnr Brisbane years to come that statement and when I make I do not mean In any way to withhold praise from those men and women who, when they get a Job, try to do an honest day's work for a day's wage. Obviously, most of the American people are of this latter type. But I believe It cannot be refuted that the American government's experiment with the dole has created several millions of new panhandlers. President Roosevelt has introduced an Innovation Into federal administration by See Expentive making public Year Ahead wnat amounts to a preliminary summation of federal financial requirements. He ordered It compiled and released for publication at this early date, he said, In order that the country may know what confronts It In the way of expenditures for the fiscal year beginning last July 1, and ending next June 30. A careful analysis of the summation and the revision of estimates of expenditures for the current fiscal year rather Indicates that H will be the most expensive In New Deal history. This Is true despite Mr. Roosevelt's declaration that a sharp up-swing In business activity will result In a marked curtailment In relief expenditures. The budget statement by the President was regarded In the national Capital as rather Illusory. In fact, somef of Mr. Roosevelt's own subordinates entertained a fear that the thing would be regarded as having a political purpose. They felt that there was no call for the action and that It might logically result In provld ing New Deal opposition with new ammunition which It can use In criticizing waste and maladministra- tion particularly with respect to the relief programs. The summation shows that the actual deficit for the current year to date is more than half again as large as was the deficit on the corresponding day last year, despite the business recovery about which Mr. Uoosevelt lately.has talked several times. It showed further that even under the revised estimates submitted by the President, expenditures for the current year will be $400,000,000 more than last year and 5000,000,000 more than In the first year of the New Deal. The President in Ills statement asserted that the deficit next June 80, will be $UOO,000,000 less than the last fiscal year, but If one digs Into the mass of figures It can be seen that this .$300,000.000 has boon simply transferred to re Y.Iged budget lignres for the works- relief program. On this basis then, some observers persistently Inquire where the substantial and sustained economy In government has lie.en effected either by the administration or by the business Improvement. It is difficult to answer. It Is more difficult. In the opinion of t;lnilrm;m Henry I*. Kletclior of tli« Itepubllcan national committee, because of the frequent references which Mr. Uoosevelt iiinile during his 1032 campaign to a program of enforced economy In government. Kv*r since the ['resident began writing the Now .Heal budgets, Capital observers luive been awaiting the day when, under the pressure of political necessity or a sincere determination on. his part to carry out his political promises, ho would start squeezing the excess out of those budgets. I think it Is fair to say that there has been an Immense amount of water In the government budgets under the New Deal. Equally, I think it Is fair to say that there lias been a tremendous amount of waste. Thus, the time apparently lias arrived when the President must start to trim down these costs if the national debt Is not to get clear out of bounds. As a politician of the keenest type, Mr. Roosevelt recognizes better, perhaps, than anyone else that the American people do not like to see debts piled up, debts either private or public. Consequently, it Is not an unsafe forecast to make that Mr. Roosevelt will be turning soon to curtailment of expenditures. fj Western New8pa.p«r Union. BRISBANE THIS WEEK.

Here Is Child's Tinted Apron By GRANDMOTHER CLARK The Van Swerlngen brothers had railroad properties that financla writers called a "three billion dol lar empire." Perhapc "three billion" referred to bonds, watered stocks and other "securities" of the "emipre." In any case, the Van Swerlngens borrowed forty-eight million dollars on that "empire," largely from J. V. Mor gan & Co. They did not pay the forty-eight million dollars, the whole thing was put up at auction the Van Swerlngens bought back control of the "three-bllllon-dollai empire" for three million dollars one-tenth of 1 per cent of the three billions and forty-five million dollars less than the amount borrowed on It. William J. Cameron, broadcast- Ing from Detroit, able to Interpret Henry Ford's views better than anybody else, finds economic signs "nj. ready changed for the better." More important, the "American mind has made a remnrkable recovery of equilibrium." IJrlilopiii's king has "about" 2,(XK),- 0(H) men mussed on three fronts, all facing Italians, and ready for anything to happen. Under these conditions something probably will happen. Whatever starts must go to the end. It Is not likely, with Hitler preparing for revenge, that France will sever her present relations with Italy for the sake of distressed Kthlopla. If dear old Knglund should sally forth and find herself all alone, she would probably "sally" back again without firing that first deciding shot. Mussolini knows that. In Nebraska President Roosevelt addressed his first speech of the campaign of 1930 to 15,000 farmers gathered around the rear end of his car and 20,000,000 other farmers by radio. He talked earnestly, with Jesting; he understands the silence of farmers who applaud little while expressing no disapproval. The farmer, who lives and thinks by himself, Is not a demonstrative being. Explaining and defending the AAA, an administration device that tells farmers what, where, how much they may plant, What animals they Vnay raise, what prices they must charge, the President chose this convincing statement: "Three years ago I visited farms In this state and saw farmers threshing 30-cent wheat and shelling 20-cent corn." With farmers, facts count There la no 30-cent wheat or 20-cent coro now. We have here a cute little apron which any youngster will love. Fits three to six-year child. It measures 10 by 24 inches.

Springbok Kill* Cow Springboks, which appear In mo tlon pictures and to most people ol Africa seem to be Very demure animals, have their likes and dislikes. This was demonstrated by one during a stock sale In Nigel, South Africa, recently. As soon as It sighted a new cow the springbok broke away from Its owner and drove Its horns into the side of the bossy until the domestic animal was dead. Juit So Too often the distinction between true and false is Identical with mine and thine. White Oriole Obtained for U. S. Collection Specimens of the "white oriole,' one of the world's rarest birds In col lections, have been obtained for the Smithsonian Institution. They were collected by Dr. Hugh M. Smith, formerly fisheries advisor M the Siamese government, from the upper slopes of Mount Kao Sabap In southeastern Slam. There they live, usually In pairs, In the tops ol the highest trees of the dense evergreen forests. Because of their lofty habitat, specimens are hard to ob tain. Practically nothing Is known about the habits of the birds. They apparently are migrants, having been reported previously from southern China and Trench Indo-Chlna. They are remarkable because of the pure white breasts of the males. This bird Is rein ted'to the Old world orioles and Is In no way related to the common Baltimore Oriole of the United States. This American bird Is a form of blackbird which owes Its iame to Its resem blance In form and color pattern to the European oriole familiar to the English colonists. The Old world bird Is more closely related to the crows. In this connection, It may be pointed out, there Is no relationship, as Is often assumed, between the Baltimore Oriole and the robin redbreast. The latter is a species of thrush.—Detroit News.

Firestone solved this problem when they developed the complete line of Ground Grip Tires for cars, trucks, tractors and all farm implements. There are three patented features that give Firestone Tires super-traction in mud, snow, sand, gravel or soft ground of any kind. 1. Gum-Dipped Cord Body The High Stretch Cord Body of Firestone Tires is Gum-Dipped (soaked in liquid rubber) giving extra strength and longer flexing life to withstand the terrific stresses and strains of the extra pulling power with only twelve pounds of air pressure. Firestone Tires are the only tires built that are Gum-Dipped. 9i Ground Grip Tread Built with 54% additional tough rubber and scientifically designed with heavy cross bars and deep grooves that are self- cleaning (chains are not necessary), giving super- traction and long wear. The bars of rubber are so placed that they will not bump when used on paved roads. 3. Two Extra Layers of Gum- Dipped Cords This exclusive construction feature locks the thick, heavy tr.ea.d securely to the Gum-Dipped cord body, making them one inseparable unit. This makes practical the use of a wider, flatter, thicker, deeper non-skid Firestone tread with higher shoulders and more and tougher rubber.
