E. Taylor in tho Trner Shir-Clipper. Some of our older citizens will remember the time when the running expenses of tho government mounted to a billion dollars n year. Then wo had a great deal of critical talk of a "billion dollar congress." A tlon, but since thc inauguration of tho Now Deal has shot Up to the $36,000,000,000 mark and is still going skyward. It might bo well to contemplate for a moment just what wo have to show for this monumental expenditure. It is true, of course, that that time feared we were going to tho dogs. In view of this memory of the horse and buggy days it is interesting, if not reassuring, to note that many people at j business i.s much better now than tho gorgeous boiirmei,whi > .

So now instead of being a billion dollar country, as was so proudly announced less than a generation ago, we seem now about to become a billion dollar jntorest- I paying country. One point to be remembered is It was nt the bottom of thc depression. New Deal leaders attribute this to the pump-priming by tho government which has been so expensive, and at "tho same time Ignore the rise in business which has developed without tho Now Deal In Europe, in Canada, and in South America. Yet despite thc tremendous expenditure which necessitates now peaks in tho national debt and higher interest payments each year, it is a fact, that our unemployment problem is still unsolved and it takes more money for relief now than it did nt thc bottom of thc depression.

By the first of July it had reached 36,000 million dollars nnd six weeks later it passed the 37 billion mark. The deficit for the first two months of tho present fiscal year exceeds the deficit of tho corresponding period last year by a hundred million dollars and if spending is maintained at the current rate the national debt will exceed 40,000 million dollars by tho end of the year. For tho past seven years expenditures have exceeded income by huge amounts and borrowing has been resorted to, to pay the bill. As a result of this policy the national debt has grown from 17,000 million dollars to 37,000 million dollars. Is it any wonder that sane people arc alarmed about the future? It is not that the size of the present debt is unduly alarming for a country with such vast resources. We could carry the dobt and reduce It sharply, as wo did following tho World war, if only the spending policy of nnncinl magnate. No ono knows, not oven Mr. Roosevelt himself.' Personally, the writer believes that Mr. Roosevelt will do whatever ho thinks is most expedient to maintain his personal popularity and political power, regard loss of the consequences to the nation or the people. By K. K. Fitimnn in tlio Korthfvood Anchor. Tho Associated Press of August 24 gavo out the following figures: "Tho public dobt climbed to a new peak of $36,961,683,239 on August 21." What of It! Well, just a week ago this writer lenrd a man Indignantly deny that ^resident Roosevelt ever promised o cut expenses. But hero Is his promise in Liberty Magazine in his own words on November 12, 1932. Mr. Roosevelt speaking: "Wo propose to cut the operating cost of your government by no loss than 25 per cent. We plan to consolidate departments, abolish use- loss commissions, nnd to houseclean to tho point whore the present extravagance Is entirely eliminated. We plan to balance the "• ••' ''I'amifv. ,.: • "»n |"fl.v; nor ',,! ° r * He '^ l)cr K! m.r i..' Scn % nno' ,S!!'»ri 1!I37. an the government could bo changed. But will that policy be changed? Does the present administration really purpose to balance the budget, cut the cost of government rigorously and attempt to begin payment of the debt? Your guess on iat question is as good as that of the most learned economist or fl- budgct year after year by keeping expenses within revenues ... There must be no taxation on tho necessities of life." "Did ho do it? Can he do It? Will ho do it? Five years have passed since then. An American patriot nnd wise man once said: "I have no way of judging the future except by tho past." By Justin Harry in the Cherokee Times. Last week the public dobt of tho United States crossed the $37,000 000,000 mark for tho first time. The federal debt is now equal to a debt of $285 for each man, woman, and child in thc country, an increase of $28 per capita during tho past year. Month by month tho debt ;oes higher and at the present rate hree years more will find it al- nost nt the $50,000,000,000 point vhich the president himself some ime ago acknowledged would be a dangerous state of affairs.

Little was known here of Coyle. Probably a good many voters confused him with his father, D. F. Coyle, who served many years as judge, with distinction, and retired of his own volition. It is not necessary to say anything about the son beyond that most fellow lawyers did not rank him with Davidson as timber for the judgesbip.
