Happenings That Affect the Din
ner Pails, Dividend Checks, and
Tax Bills of Every Individual.
National and International Prob
lems Inseparable from Local
Not since that dramatic day in
March 1933 when President Roose
velt, having taken his oath of of
fice issued the Bank Holiday pro
clamation as the first act of his
admistration, .has the New Deal
been in so difficult a position as
it is now. And never, politically
speaking has New Deal power and
prestige been at so low an ebb.
That, at least, is the opinion of
practically all newspapermen and
publicists, including those who
support the Roosevelt Administra
tion as well as those who oppose
it. The president personally may
still hold a high place in the es
teem of the people. But some of
tha most important of the “re
forms” and “experiments” which
be fathered have fallen on extre
mely evil days.
In the words of Time, the Pres
ident has recently .taken “a series
of blows such as no President of
the U. S. ever suffered and survi
ved.’’ First blow was the strong
congressional f'ght aganist renew
his powers over money. The Presi
dent side-stepped this, and won
the round by a narrow margin.
Then came the neutrality battle,
and the definite refusal of the
Senate to give him the free hand
in foreign policy which he and
Secretary Hull thought necessary.
Never did a President fight harder
•to gain what he wished. But, as
Vice-President Gamer is reported
to have 'told his chief, the votes

simply couldn’t be mustered.
Congress was not yet through
with its undeclared war on the
White House. The Administra
tion’s $4,OtX>>000,000 “self-liquida
ting” lending and spending pro
gram was a mere shadow of itself
after it had run the gamut of
congressional resolutions and a
mendments. The foreign cred't
proposal was deleted. A clause
was inserted barring loans for
; projects competing with private
business. Proposed appropriations
were cut all along the line. Even
the words “Self Liquidating”
were removed, by Committee de
| mand, from the b‘ 11 ’■ s title.
Worst blow of all, perhaps from
the political point of view, came
with the passage of the Hatch
bill. Introduced last session by
Senator Hatch the measure had
• been buried in Committee. This
session Representative Dem*ey
went to work and forced it out in
to the open. Gist of the bill is to
make it illegal for any federal of
fice-holders, with certain excep
tions such as the President, his
aides, cabinet members, etc., to
use their job influence to raise
money or to influence votes. It is
obvious what this means to any
federal political machine. It means
that political control will largely
depart from Washington to be
come centered in state capitals
and other local subdivisions. It
means that comparatively few
federal jobholders will be dele
gate* to the next Democratic nom
inating convention, where close
to half were at the last conven
tion. It means that the President s
direct power over the Democratic
nartv has been greatly reduced.
And even this wasn't all. Im
mensely important New Deal crea
tion is the National Labor Rela
tions Board. And the House voted,
by almost two-to-one majority, to
investigate it to discover whether
it has unduly favored workers
over employers, has exceeded its
lawful powers, and has favored
the CIO over the AF of L.
This isn’t all there is to Con
gress' revolt against the New
Deal, but it touches the high
spots. Of immense importance is
the fact that the opposition comes
principally from within the party.
The Democrats are literally torn
asunder. Leadership, especially in
the Senate, has largely collapsed
and party discipline is almost non
existent. Party whips have given
up, discouraged, during recent
weeks when trying to get “the
hoys’ ’into line.
On the Republican side of the
fence, the votes, of course have
been cast against the New Deal.
But the Republicans have rarely
taken the offensive in fighting
proposed legislation.. Instead, they
have followed the plan laid down
by canny Majority Leader McNary
had a hard time keeping his men
under control. But he did, and the
wisdom of his plan, in the view
of hardened political observers,
has been proven. New Dealers
cannot say their program was
sabotaged by the opposition party
as they could have if Republicans
had been in the first line trenches
during the fight.
It is harvest time in Eui-ope.
And so for the moment, there are
no new imajor crises. Men who
are needed to bring in the harvest
cannot be set to marching and
Most experts think Hitler will
provoke another major crisis in

M. K. G.— Do you think that I
am doing the right thing to let
my niece stay here in my home?
I am terribly worried about this
Ans: Your niece is NOT IN
LOVE with your husband but
if it makes you unhappy to
see them carry on, arrange
at once for her to get another
place to stay. There is no need
to keep anyone in your home
if it has a tendency to make
you unhappy, so stop this
matter right where it is be
$ire trouble does arise be
tween you and your husband.
I. L. W.—I am thinking of
taking a course of art at home
and wonder if I will be successful
Ans: The course would help
you. But you wouldn’t have
work after you completed the
course. I favor your taking
something that you could de
pend on ai< a future profession
and I don’t believe it will be
G. R.—Ilm corresponding with
a married man and I wish to
know if he tells me the truth and
will he do anything to please me.
Does he love me as he says and
should I put all my confidence in
Ans: Be your age, you act
like some thirteen year old
girl instead of 26 year old.
This marred man will never
mean anything to you and if
you want to find yourself in
a lot of trouble junt continue
on with him and you are
bound to be made unhappy.
Why don’t you go with a sin
E. K.—What does my husband
do with his money and where does
he go and where are his shorts?
Ans: lie left his shorts at
tho same place he left his hat
an<l aiso where he leaves the
largest portion of his money.
You had better give him a
piece of your mind and put a
stop to his frolicing around. j
R. C. B.—Do I stand a chance J
of getting this job at the club
where I worked last winter? How
can I find out?
Ans: You stand an excellent
chance of getting back on
there the first of October. You
had better call the Manager or
go by to see him right away.
Let him know you are waiting
for your old job back.
H. T. S.—I seem to be just
crazy in love with my lady friend
and I wish to know how I stand
Ans: This girl likes you, but
she isn t as much in love with
you as you seem to he with
her. You are mighty nice to
her but I don’t think that she
appreciates you as much as
she ishould. Don’t let yourself
fall too deeply in love until
you feel more assured of her.
M. E. C.—Will my daughter
overcome the spells she is having
ami wfill she ever overcome them?
Ans: Her health is quite
poor right now. If she were

few months, I feel that she
will be well again. She is
young and should react to

MEMPHIS, Aug. 24 (ANP)—S.
D. Bount. white, of this city will
doubtless think twice before he
again tries to enforae Jim Crow
rules on buses when Negroes are
included among the passengers.
Last Sunday while riding on
Glenview-Faxon bus, Blount saw
a colored passenger, Richard Dean,
24, sitting “too far up front.”
In a brusque, insulting tone,
Blount reportedly yelled at Dean
and ordered him to move to the
rear of the bus “where he belong
ed.” Then the feathers started
flying as Passenger Dean proceed
ed to trim Blount in approved
“Joe Louis style.”
Next 'morning in City Court
Dean was fined $25 on a charge
of assalut and battery, $10 for
‘disturbing the peace,” after Pat
rolman Hook had testified. Hook
said that when he arrived at the
bus a crowd of 100 persons had
gathered, but that the hard hitting
Dean had left. He was overtaken
about three blocks from the scene,
however, and in the tussle that
followed, was said ,to have slightly
injured Officer Hook’s arm.
