TAMMANY IS OVERTHROWN
Tammany Hall, the most cor
rupt, brutal and heartless polivica
organization in America, has been
ousted from control of the nation’
greatest city. For the first tim
in sixteen years the grip of th
Tiger upon the people of New
York has been broken.
Tammany is a peculiar institu
tion. It professes to represent th
Democratic party, but Democrats
and Republicans alike allied them
selves behind the Fusion ticket,
headed by Major Fiorello La Guar
dia, to overthrow the beast. The
independent Democratic candidate,
Joseph V. McKee, had the backing
of the real leaders of the national
Democratic party, which is as
earnest as any Republican can be
in the desire to eliminate Tam
many’s corrupt influence from
Tammany Hall has never repre

party machine in New York. It
was hot until the old leadership
of the Republicans wps thrown
out and new men placed in control
of that organization, that there

Oogmally a social organization
founded in the very early day
when the words "Republican” anc
"Democrat” meant the same thing
the official name of Tammany
Hall is "The Young Men’s Repub
lican-Democratic Society of St
Tammany.” A hundred years ago
it stood for all that was best in the
social and political life of the city
"The Hall” was a meeting place for
the artistic, literary and intellects
al life of the city. But control
of Tammany fell into corrupt
hands, and it gradually became a
mere instrument of graft- and
It takes a good deal to stir up
the people of New York City,
Seven million persons, of diverse
interests and many racial strains,
have little in common. That

on its campaign of jnjbtic plunder,
But gven New Yorkers get tired
after a while, of being robbed.
The NRA has its pioneering
work behind it. Now it is gradual
ly developing into a more rational
better organized governmental bu
reau. Last change gave the Blue
Eagle five definite branches.
They cover, in groups, Extractiv
Industries, Construction and Mach
inery, Chemicals, Leather and other
Manufacturers, Trades, Services
Textiles and Clothing. Each
branch has an administrator all its
own. making a sort of five-man
cabinet to Big-Shot Administrator
Hugh Johnson. Persons who wish
to report a code violation to the
NRA 'have only to go to the post
office, procure a blank, fill it out
and file it with the local NRA
compliance officer. He makes an
effort to fix matters up, and if he
fails he passes it on to his imme
diate superior the Divisional Ad
ministrator. He takes a crack at
it, and in event of failure, sends it
up to the National Compliance
Board. If it flops, General John
son gets it next. If necessary, he

General Johnson always has(a lot
of fights on his hands. Most re
cent was with the Federal Reserve
Board’s Bulletin. It said that late
industrial declines have occurred
most severely in industries which
have been affected by codes. The
General shook his head, growled
menacingly, barked out that the
situation was precisely the reverse
that, and that code industries have
been going forward. So the read
er can take his choice. A more
important fight of the battling
General’s, is his long-standing feud
with Ford. The other day he
traded in his government Lincoln
for a Cadillac, announced that
Ford would get no government
contracts. Showdown will come
soon, when automobile makers are
required to send in their employ-1
ment statistics. If Ford refuses,!
as everyone believes he will, next
round will probably take place in
Along about the time this is read,
Maxim Litvinoff, soviet foreign
affairs commissioner, will walk up
the steps of the White House, be
ushered into one or another of its
rooms, and sit down across the table
from President Roosevelt. It will
make the first relations of any of
ficial nature between the United
States and Russia since the double
eagles of the Romanoffs crumbled
Upshot of the conference—
which will bear pricipally upon
trade relations—is expected to be
U. S. recognition of the U. S. S. R.,
and an exchange of ambassadors.
The Russian Government is a tre
I mendous buyer of machines and
mill products—and it has been sug
gested suavely that the way for
the U. S. to get a large share of
the business is to become frendly
Mr. Roosevelt will mention on
subject that won’t be especially
pleasant to Comrade Litvinoff
This will be the American claims
that have been discussed for close
to twenty years. They run to
more than $500,000,000, and Mr
Roosevelt will suggest that it’
about time for something to b
paid on account, at least.
Attitude of American busines
toward Soviet recognition has
changed slowly but surely the last
few years. Bulk qf industries—
especialy the larger ones—feel that
it is a wise step, will mean much
to the country’s prosperity.
EVERYONE MUST HELP
Not another winter like the last!
That was the pledge of the new
Administration when it came into
office. Every effort is being given
to achieve it. It represents the
i most earnest hope of every citizen.
I But government alone can’t d
it all. We can build public work
| but there comes an end to that, and
' the public treasury is not bottom
| less. A large share of any kind of
relief must be borne by the indi

vital as this is. The best kind of re
lief is that which spends money and
provides jobs on projects whiclf are
permanently valuable, and gives
those who pay the bill something
really needed. That is true whether
the work is done by the Federal
government or the state or John
Jones down the street.
A dollar spent for a new house,
or to repair an old one, does double
duty. An extremely large share of
it goes directly to labor in your own
town. The rest of it goes to va
rious industries, through numerous
pockets. It touches many states
land communities. It is always
growing—and by the time it has
run its course it has done the work
of fifty or a hundred dollars.
Remember that—and remember
coo that you have a selfish interest
in building and repairing while
prices are still in the economic base

WIDE HUNT FOR
Investigation into the sensational
robbery of a United States mail
truck at Charlotte last week has
settled down into a methodical
probably long-drawn out search
that may extend into many parts of
America and other countries.
With over a week elapsed since the
bold hold-up investigators have lit
tle hope of apprehending the band
its in this vicinity and are now pre
paring to extend their search into
other sections. Since the two mail
sacks, found under the Boonesboro
bridge, near Richmond, Ky., have
been positively identified as the ones
stolen from the truck there it is
now believed that the four bandits
have fled and are hiding in some
populous center. —

young Asheville banker sentenced
early in 1932 to serve 15 to 24
months for embezzlement has been
granted a full and complete pardon

In the tobacco market similar re
sults have been achieved Mr. Peek
said. Ninety-five percent of the
growers of flue-cured tobacco have
signed agreements for tile reduction
of next year’s crop. - The A. A. A.
in the meantime negotiated an
agreement with the tobacco com
panies, whereby they pay 17 cents
a pound for this year’s crop, plus
a processing tax of 4.2 cents a
pound. This has resulted this year
in giving the tobacco growers about
$100,000,000 for their crops, as
against $43,000,000 for the 1932
crop, and in addition about $10,
000,000 of bonus money out of the
processing tax is being distributed.
In the cigar tobacco, Burley and
other tobacco districts, similar
benefits to the growers are work
Probably the most difficult prob
lem to solve is that of milk, Mr.
Peek is confident that the Govern
ment’s efforts so far have been
soundly based and that in every
"milk-shed” agreements similar to
those already in effect in the Chi
cago milk-shed will be worked out.
In the meantime the Dairy Mark
eting Corporation is already taking
all the surplus butter off the mark
et. stabilizing the price effectively.
In rice, apples, nuts, small fruits
and some other lines, Mr. Peek is
satisfied that the progress made has
already benefited the farmer.
Rice growers he said, have got $30,
000,000 for their 193 3 crop, in
stead of the $20,000,000 they
would have had without Govern
In the face of these achievements,
Mr. Peek and everybody else in the
Administration think that there is
little gorund for complaint on the
part of any considerable body of
farmers; certainly less than there
has been for many years past.
Do You No Harm
The dose of a liquid laxative can be
measured. The action can be con
trolled. It forms no habit; you need
not take a “double dose” a day or
two later. Nor will a mild liquid
laxative irritate the kidneys.
The right liquid laxative will bring
a perfect movement, and with no
discomfort at the time, or afterward.
The wrong cathartic may keep
you constipated as long as you keep
on using it!
An approved liquid laxative (one
which is most widely used for both
adults and children) is syrup pepsin.
Dr. Caldwell’s Syrup Pepsin is a
prescription, and is perfectly safe. Its
laxative action is based on senna—
a natural laxative. The bowels will
not become dependent on this form
of help, as they do in the case of
cathartics containing mineral drugs.
Ask your druggist for Dr. Caldwell’s
Syrup Pepsin. Member N. R. A.
