WHERE DO WE GO FROM HERE?
(by Emmett J. Scott)
Washington, D. C.,—The natural
inquiry of the nearly 22,000,000 pers
ons who voted for Wendell Willkie on
Election Day is: “WHERE DO WE
GO FROM HERE?”
These citizens, only about 4,000
000 fewer than the number who Voted
for Mr. Roosevelt, out of a total popu
lar vote for both candidates of some
48^,000,000, represent an American min
ority group of 11—24ths of the whole,
It is thus apparent that the elect
ion went to the New Deal by a signif
icantly small plurality.
As compared with Mr. Roosevelt’s
vote in 1936, there was a protest, defec
tiojn vote this year on the part of his
former supporters amounting to ap
proximately 7,000,000 votes.
For instance, the Rotosevelt vote
in the following States, more uc^uce
ly than can be otherwise indicated,
shows how clbisely this election was:
New York, 51.8; Wisconsin, 50.8; Illin
ois, 51.2; New Jersey, 51.8; Ohio, 52.2;
Missouri, 52.5; Massachusetts, 53.5;
These are not “tidal-wave”, ,or
“landslide” figures. On the contrary
as Roger Babson, famous Statistician
pointed out in a personal telegram to
Mr. Roosevelt, “one percent of the
vote, properly allocated would have el
ected Wendell Willkie”.
Elaborating on his statement that
a 1 percent shift of votes would have
elected Mr. Willkie, he said that 500,
000 votes distributed in states where
the outcome was close would have giv
en the Republican standard bearer a
All of this, by way of saying, the
country only by a “squeak” has given
Mr. Roosevelt the “vote of confidence”
Now, with the country almost ev
enly divided in political sentiment, stri
dent voices are demanding a strong,
determned democracy— demanding
that democracy in the United States
shall stand united.
In this discussion of democracy,
the Negro group still remains the test.
It cannot forego its demands for fair
and equitable protection before the
It cannot complacently accept dis
franchisement for 8,000,000 of its kins
men in the South.
It will even protest against Jim
Crow cars and Jim-Crow laws of ev
It will continue to protest against
inequitable Relief administration, and
for a larger representation in the pro
ductive industry of the country, and in
Social Security protection.
It will continue to oppose photo
graphs on applications for Federal
employment—a device which now elim
inates the applicants even before they
appear at Government Departments.
It will still protest discrimination
in the Armed Services of the Govern
In fact, it will continue to fight
to be included whole-heartedly in all
the processes of American Democracy.
If the dignity and power of Am
erican democracy are to survive in A
merica, a fairer consideration and
more even-handed justice must pre
It was for these things Wendell
Willkie was willing to pledge himself.
It is for these things all true friends of
democracy must contend.
Our cause is a just one. The tra
gic breaches which undoubtedly exist
among the American people can only
be healed by an acceptance of these
fundamental principles, among the
many others, which now divide us.
Principles approved by the nearly
23,000,000 persons who voted for Wen
dell Willkie cannot be waived aside. As
Joseph W. Martin, Jr., Chairman of
the Republican National Committee,
stated at the close of the campaign:
“A just cause cannot be stopped. Our
principles must prevail if this country
is to march forward to a higher and
Near the end of Qctober, a note
worthy event occurred. The Business
Week industrial activity index, which
is one of the standard business baro
meters, touched 136. That was seven
tenths of a point higher than the prev
ious all-time record, which was reach
ed during the week of July 27, back in
What this obviously means is that
we are in the midst of a boom—and a
bojbin that will undoubtedly reach gid
dy heights before it is done. Equally
obvious, it is not a healthy boom. It
is based upon one thing, and one thing
only—war. It will stop when war and
war preparations stop. And, like all
war booms, it is inflationary in tend
Dismissfort that for the moment,
it seems clear that a period of consider
able artificial prosperity lies ahead cf
us. Practically all business will be af
fected. Modern war and modern pre
paredness programs call for an unprec
edented degree of national effort. For
every soldier in uniform, there must
be half-a-dozen men or more behind
him in factories and supply depots, pro
ducing, distributing and handling the
hundred and one articles that today’s
soldier must have if he is tp be an ef
ficient destroyer. In modern war, in
brief, the civilian population is as
much involved as the actual armies in
the field. ,
S:me industries will probably ex
pand at a tremendous rate during the
next few years. We have seen signs
of that already in aircraft manufact
ure—the principal makers are working
24 hours a day, are building new plants
as fast as the necessary labor and mat
erials can be obtained, and have! gi
gantic quantities of unfilled orders on
hand. It was lately reported that Bri
tain will buy 12,000 additional military
planes in this country, and that our
government will place orders for an
Railroad carloadings will be go
ing up. Electric power output will nec
essarily follow the surging industrial
indices. And such basic heavy indust
ries as steel will find their principal
problem in figuring how to keep out
put up to demand.
Normally, a great jump in produc
tion such as this would involve gigant
ic profits. That will not be true this
time. This year, for instance, many
industries expect that net earnings will
be under the 1939 level, even though
production is substantially greater.
There are a number of reasons for
that. One is that commodity costs are
rising. Still another is that it will be
necessary to put a larger proportion of
gross income back into plant facilities,
And the most imptrtant reason of all
is taxes. We are starting a twenty or
thirty-billion dollar arms program on
top of a $45,000,000,000 national debt,
and in the face of the fact that Federal
income has been under Federal spend
ing for eight years. The; tax boosts
put into effect by the current Con
gress are generally regarded as but a
modest start. It seems inevitable that
far larger increases will be necessary
next year and during the years to fol
low. At the same time, government
will probably (\o all it can to hold down
prices of finished products, and to
absorb as much .of the higher costs as
it can. Profits must be adequate, but
they won’t be great.
It isn’t pleasant to think of the
depression that, in the view of most
economists, will follow the war boom.
History shows us again and again that
prsperity based on arms production is
eventually disastrous. But force of
circumstance is forcing us to follow
the rest of the world in the race to
ward military supremacy. So, until
peace comes again to a tired world,
business is going to be booming in A
The “Battle of Britain” is at least
temporarily slowing in tempo. The
“Battle of the Empire” has begun.
Starting point was Italy’s invasion of
Whoever controls Greece, its is
lands, and its many undeveloped sea
and naval and submarine bases, large
ly controls the Mediterranean- 'Musso
lini’s “Mare nostrum.” The Italian at
tack on Greece is obvipusly designed
as the first step in a carefully planned
Axis effort to destroy Britain’s influ
ence in that area. If that attempt
should succeed, the Axis would have
taken a long step toward eventual vic
tory in the war.
Whether it w ill succeed is the ques
tion now. Best answers seem to be
that it will fail. For one thing, the
Italians, as in the past, have shown
themselves to be poor fighters the
Greek army has made the going plenty
tough for Italy’s warriors. For an
other thing it hooks now as if Russia is
none too happy about present Axis
moves, and may be preparing to resist
For a third thing, the British
navy is still the best navy in Europe,
by a tremendous margin. Italian na
val forces have steadfastly avoided
meeting their English enemy, even
when they had the advantage in num
ber and size of ships. Amusing comm
entary on this side is found in a storv
which has been making the rounds of
London. Every Navy, the story runs,
has its own favorite drink: The Eng
lish prefer gin, the American- take
whiskey, and the Italians stick t*o port.
U. S. POPULATION ON THE INCREASE—
According to the latest census statistics, the population of the
United States iha8 increased to 150,362,226.
