Newspaper readers have received
big money’s worth dump the last two
or three weeks- Headline news has
been dramatic, colorful, important.
Hiph spots: The buminp of a preat
passenger liner with rumors of sab
otage and criminal negligence; the
textile strike, which now affects 400,
000 workers ami is bringing about
major political repercussions; the Sen
ate investigation of the armament
manufacturers.
So far as the long view is con
cerned, the last of these is easily the
most vital. Nothing costs the world
«so — n.-h. measured either in dollars
or lives, as does a greet wn-. The
economic co«t of the World T' ar is
estimated at about $400,000,000,000.
In every nation the cost of wars rep
resents the larpest item in the tax
bill. In the United States, army and
navv maintenance, charges on war
bonds, pensions and war incidentals
are over C® per cent of the federal
government’s oreratinp budget.
Last spring, the magazine fortune
ran an article entitled “Arms and
the Men.” Heavily condemned, the
article charged that the motto of the
armament dealers is to keep a war
gong onee it is started, to attempt
to start naw o nes in time of peace
The article did not confide itself
to generalities but made specific
charges against famous firms, and
mentioned names, dates, places, in
cidents. It was republished in pam
phlet form by a large eastern pub
lishing firm, and hundreds of thou
sands of copies were sold at ten cents
each. Then, a few months later, two
long books appeared, dealing in great
er detail with the same subject. The
present Senate investigation was the
direct result of all this
The executives of a United States
submarine company have produced
the most dramatic testimony—letters
from their files show that the arms
companies constitute a tremendous in
ternational combine which takes no
sides, knows no boundaries. As For
tune said, it is the only business where
a concern likes to see its competitors
make sales, because it knows that
these sale must inevitably lead to
Increased business for all concerned
Here’s how it works, to use a mythi

talk, “contacts” high officials—and
Arcady buys three destroyers. Syl

iiore—and so it goes, with each coun
try trying to uo$ play the other.
Honored names have been involved
n the investigation- Example: One
btter said that King George had per- j
sonally interceded) in an effort to
bring certain buyers to the English!
arms market. Other letters sa d I
frankly, when talking of possible
South American business, that graft
was essential- .
There is growing sentiment in favor
of nationalisation of the arms in
dustry—but those who aren’t easily
swayed by emotion feel that would
avail little. American manufacturers
are small frogs in a very large pud
dle_foreign concerns such as Skoda.
Vickers-Armstrong and Krupp are
the really big shots. -Tf the government
took over every American armament
and munitions maker it would affect
the international situation to only a
minute degree.
Tha textile strike started slowly—
where union leaders expected to prac
tically bring the ndustry to a stand
1 stll in a single day, less than half
the workers responded to the strike
call immediately. AS this writing,
however, most mills have finally
closed, and it looks as if half a mil
lion men will be out within the near
future
I (The strike has been marked by
■ vi'olenoe, misunderstandings, bitter
hatred. A number have been killed,
scores injured- The government ar
bitration board has failed — neither
! side seemed willing to submit to a
decision it might make.
1 General Johnson, in a radio address,
said the strike vras a breach of faith
f on the part of labor—and the instant
response was a demand by labor
leaders that the General either re
sign or be fired
There is a growin belief that only
! one man in the country has a chance
to affect an agreenvent—the Presi
dent. He has almost unlimited power.
! He has said little as yet, except that
he would send federal troops to be
leaguered sectors if state legslatures
[passed the enabling acts.
I The Presdent does not want to act
I directly—it would be a great blow
,to his prestige if he failed to achieve
I results, and there is always the dan
ger that he will be accused of favor
ing one faction or the other. How
ever, he ma ybe forced into it before
long—every day the strike continues
to cost the country a million or so
, dollars in purchasin power, and en
hances the chance of strikes occuring
in other industries.
Happenings That Affect the
Dinner Paiis, Dividend Checks
and Tax Bills of Every Indi
vidual.
National and International
Problems Inseparable from/ Lo
cal Welfare.
For the last hundred years or I
30 voters have gone to the polls
and found two lists of candidates
on their ballots. One bore the
name Republican, the other Dem
ocrat. Today both major parties
are torn and battered, mainly.be'
cause o\3 internal dissension.
Authoritative observers are fore*
eating that we are on the verge
of a political realignment that
will mean the death of he old par'
ties, the birth of new ones.
If that realignment comes, it
will have the support of logic and
, reason. In the old days a politi
cal party stood for definite things
and every candidate who ran on
its ticket gave them his allegiance.
At the present, neither party has
a program that a majority of its
members honestly support;
neither can consistently obtain the
allegiance that is essential to
party discipline. In the Republi
can party, for example, are such
diametrically opposed men as Sen
ator Reed of Pennsylvania & Sen
ator Norris of Nebraska; it would
be hard to think of a single issue
on which they agree, yet each
carrie* the same party label. In
the Democratic party, a eonserva"
five such as Senator Glass of Vir-,
ginia is faced with a radical such
as Senator Bone of Washington—
while the head of the party, Pres
ident Rposevelt, maintains a mid
dle ground between these op"
posing attitudes. The titular lead
er of the Republicans is former
resident Hoover—yet close to
half of the party’s members in thp
Senate oppose his principles, and
many of them, such as Johnson,
Norris, La Follette, and Borah re
fused te support him when he
ran for reelection in 1932.
New parties, when and if they
appear, will be definitely opposed
in principle as well as name. One
will consist of conservatives, the
other of liberals and radicals. It
is a noteworthy fact, as the al
ways asture Frank Kent of Bal
timore Sun recently painted out,

—Adv. t
that President Roosevelt did not
once mention the name “Demo
crat” during the speeches he made
on his tour of the United States
and territories. Many persons
close to Washington affairs think
that the President is seeking to
effect the realignment now, that
he wants to do away with the
Democratic party and start a new
one made up of people who be
lieve as he does when it comes
to national policies.
A more concrete illustration of
the current trend is afforded by
the California primaries. In that
state, Republican Senator John
son filed for both nominations,
carried them both by heavy ma- j
jorities. And Upton Sinclair, a
lifelong Socialist, but a Demo
cratic candidate, rode easily into
the gubernatorial nomination over
all “regular” Democratic candi*
dates. In many states party lines
have been destroyed in this man
ner.
There will be no new major
party in 1936—-but 1940 may tell
a different story. By that time,.
President Roosevelt, if he is re
elected, will have come to the end
of his presidential career, and
t will have to seek perpetuation of
bis policies- through other men.
There is no telling what the issues
of that year will be—but it is fore
: cast htat within the next six years
{there will be a blowup within the
' existing parties which will result
in decisive change.
The textile strike has upset all]
the business barometers, anr has
clouded the outlook for fall im'
provement in general business.
Outside of textiles, little that is
noteworthy has occurred in the
business situation.- Latest author
itative figures show that business
has continued at the low summer
level; that, of major industries,
electric power has fared the best
so far as sales are concerned. Car
loadings recently dropped, though
they were well above the compar
able period in 1933. Steel output
dropped to around 19 per cent of
capacity—the. lowest point since
the hank holiday ef March. 1933.
Auto and coal production declin
ed—the latter is heavily depress
ed, due to slackening in consumer
industries. The commodity price
index (cost of living) reached the
highest point since 1930 recently,
when it touched 78.5 (average for
years 1923-25 equals 100). That
however, is a mixed blessing—you
can force prices up, but you can’t
make people buy.
Major business news lies in ru
mors of changes in the NRA set
up. Responsible reporters say that
the President is now working on
NRA reorganization. It i believed
that price-fixing will be further
reduced that the famous section
7-A, which has contributed large
ly to labor troubles, will he re
written and clarified that con
sumers will get a better break
Abolishment of price-fixing, which
has unused endless discussion and
dissention, would again center
NRA activity on its original pur
pose—control of wages, working
hours and working conditions.
There will be few important po
litical moves until November Con
gressional elections are over—the
administration will find out then
what thb public thinks of its pol
icies. The decision made at the
polls will have an obvious effect
on future activities.

lice when she saw blood. They
were charged in police court of
being drunk and disturbing the
peace. Mrs. Erwin stated that

were so small and there wasn’t
anything to it, and that she didn’t
want the court to punish Mrs.
Neil. Judge aimer made both wo
men shake hands to try to get
along, and the ease was dismissed.

WATCH”"OUT “J
FOR PEDESTRIANS
Here is something that every
automobile driver should keep
constantly in mind: The pedes
trian must always be given the
right of way. He is, by com
parison with the, motorist, in a
precarious position—when a crisis ,
occurs, his only chance to escape
unharmed often depend upon the
driver of the car which is in dan
ger of running him down.
The pedestrian accident toll
constitutes one of the worst phases
of our disgraceful automobile ac
cident record. In 1933, 37.14 per
cent of all motor accidents involv
ed pedestrians. These accounted
for 30.83 per cent of all injuries,
and 44.95 per cent of all deaths
—showing that when a pedestrian
is in an accident, the chance of
his being killed is greater than !
in any other type of automobile |
mishap.
This year the automobile fatal
ity record is rising over the 1933
level, and if the present trend
continues the death toll will reach
a new high. And, as usual, the
pedestrian continues to get the
worst of it. There is a legion
of motorists who believe that as
the “go” light flares they are en
titled to dash across an intersec
tion, whether or not people on 1
foot are till in it. It is an interest
ing commentary on this that the
courts have held that once a pe
destrian has stepped into a street
under traffic light protection, he
is entitled to a safe passage across,
whether or not the light changes.
Every automobile driver should j
regard pedestrians as being his
personal responsibility. You may
save a fraction of a second by
'd ashing across intersections I
thronged with pedestriansbut is it
w*rth it in view of the fact that j
“saving” may cost a life,?
