Life at a Glance
By David Bethe
It's a case of committing the
same mistake Harold Lloyd did.
I when he closed the gate after the
horse had scampered out, Senator
Taft of Ohio is ready now for a
change in the new Labor Law, of
which he is co-author. They cook
ed up a clause, which prohibited
unions from active political cam
paigns and Congress passed it
over President Truman’s vet®.
Now the Good Sfenator Taft is
concerned quite a bit about it.
Maybe he has just discovered
that the clause might not be in
the framework of free speech and
a free press.
But The Truth Of The Matter.
Senator Taft would like very much
to have a little of the union pres
sure in his stable in 1948. But I
am mighty afraid he closed the
gates too late. The irate protests
are already out grazing viciously
across the country.
The Abolition Of Rent Control
has proved its worth to the avar
icious landlords throughout the
country. In New York City, there
was a 25 per cent increase in dis
posses for reasons other tha* non.
payment of rents during the first
seven days of July. Believe me, the
little salaried man and woman
may wake up soon in a flurry of
high prices that will all but
smother them. There is coal, steel
too, which will reflect the increase
the miners recently secured. Ps
affect will be felt in every com
modity—even in old pots and pans.
For Some Unexplainable Reason
folks will not learn to understand
the present by studying the past.
Oh, but they do have the op
portunity of better understanding
the past by observing the present
Sometimes men see their mistakes
too late, or they don’t see them at
After World War 1, every living
head tried his best to squeeze his
brother and friend for a nickel
and dime. So hungry and greedy
were they iif the days of prosper
ity. Why, you would have thought
that business in its rosy and pro
fitable state was going to last ' r
ever. This greedy reaching out
continued for exactly eleven years.
Then one afternoon, all the papers
throughout the nation and the
world, splashed headlines about
the downfall of Wall Street.
Yes, The Very Foundation of
our capitalistic system had tum
bled, and was swaying. Those were
ominious headlines, if you re
member them, that afternoon—I
haven’t forgotten them.
Strangely enough, there had
never been political and economic
prognostigators, who said it could
never happen here. When the
crash came, they stood dazed and
helpless—like a little child—sur
rounded by all the protection in
the world, but unable to figure out
how to use it. Here were those
satesmen and ecomoic experts,
armed with all the resources any
civilized nation needs to give its
citizens a livilihood, yet they
could not devise any means to use
Even Mr. Hoover, who cannot
be held entirely responsible for
the cracking ecomony, was so
shocked, he could do nothing more
than lift his voice meekly in a
lame assurance that prosperity
was just around the corner.
Yes, everybody just stood with
their hands outreaching. Banks,
real estate brokers, landlords, rail
roads, steel mills insurance com
panies, farmers plantation Owners
all had their hands outreaching.
But this time, they were reaching
with their bellies full of nickels
and dimes. They were reaching for
help—for some means by which
they could find a place to spend
the change. And it was not Until
Franklin Roosevelt arrived on the
scene with bis f'Tew Deal, djd
life in this wealthy Country take
on a spur of activity.
We Are Easy To Forget. But
the next two or three years may
determine whether our ecomony
is a solid on, or will totter at the
first cry of Wall Street.
