Friday. March 31, 1939.
In u general conversation the other day. i
man of national recognition in the educational
world, pointed out to his college students that
the world's ills are not economic, but moral and
spiritual The prominent man, hitting the nail
on the head, it was learned is not a member of
the church and it is gathered from the story
that he contributes little thought or material
aid to those agencies that would promote mor
als and elevate the spiritual being of his com
munity. state or nation
That prominent man. while pointing out a
stark truth, is partly responsible for the unrest
in the world today
Every community has its piophets who can
till you what is the matter with the world and
yet they are generally the ones who do not lift
a hand to relieve a bad situation. Their minds
are bent-on their individual pleasures, and they
are the ones who contribute to the chaos that
surrounds society here, there and everywhere
It isn't the criminal who is caught and punish
ed in the courts of the land that is destroying
the country; the' man who offers all the criti
cism and who does nothing about it is the one
responsible for conditions as they are found
here and there and even in far-away Europe.
This is a land of freedom- freedom to do as
one pleases It is that freedom shorn of all re
sponsibility to the moral and spiritual obliga
tions that is going to engulf us all sooner or la

This Monetary Business
Professor Walter E. Spahr, New York Uni
versity economist and critic of the New Deal,
is urging a return to the gold standard. Sena
tor Carter Glass chimed in with some enlight
ening remarks at a subcommittee hearing held
recently in connection with the monetary sys
?j Th? advantageous management uf currency
is next to an impossibility, no doubt, and sure
ly the gold standard has its advantages. But it
has its disadvantages, too?advantages that the
f eftln-f of th" present currency policy have not
and do not propose to correct. Millions of peo
ple never wanted a currency system that made
possible a $100 debt on 40-cent cotton and the
repayment of that rleht on fi-cent cotton a re
sulting ratio disadvantage of slightly more
than 8 to 1 While the bondholder merely tuck
ed his bond away and waiting for the deflation
period to pass, millions of farmers and other
producers of life's necessities had to let their
perishable goods go on a low market even when
those necessities were produced on an inflated
This monetary business is a unique business
lor the manipulators, and one that the farmer
can't understand when he contracts a debt on
one basis and has to repay it on another while
the manipulators stand by and worship a lit
tle old yellow metal.
The go la lovers are wurkuig liaid to restore
the metal to its throne, and while they are
hopeful it will not take long they admit that
the world must regain a certain degree of po
litical stability as well as economic stability.
Commenting on the monetary system, Sena
tor Glass, the father of the reserve system that
permitted panics to run their course with cer
tain regularity, said the government perpe
trated a fraud when it issued gold certificates
while there was a law on the statute books that
prevented payment in gold. It is apparent that
th<' all-knowing senator from the neighboring
state is more interested in gold theories than
he is in basing currency values on factors that
have a direct bearing on the welfare of human
A few real democratic senators disagreed
with the gold standard lovers, but Spahr and
others of his class were roundly denounced by
W K Ogg, American Farm Bureau Federation
economist, who urged a managed currency that
would provide stability for purchasing power
and debt payment.
Bigger Than the President
When President Roosevelt entered the House
ot Representatives to deliver an address re
cently. everyone stood up except Carter Glass,
ol Virginia, and "Cotton Ed" Smith, of South
Carolina. It is apparent that both Mr. Glass and
Mi Smith consider themselves bigger than
the President ol the United Stales. Our own
Senator Bailey had the common decency to
stand and he did a noble deed when he urged
Glass and Smith to stand But the North Caro
lina senator was in the wrong crowd.
One of the troubles in the nation's capital to
day is found in a group of men who believe
themselves greater than the President, and
who although elected senators try to perform
the duties of the President. Carter Glass, "Cot
Ion Ed" Smith, Joe Bailey and others could
have rendered the country a greater service if
the^i had not tried to belittle the choice of the
people day in and day out ?
