tions were about prepared to
put out several billions at 5 per
cent to finance new home build
ing, Ickes came out with a
broadcast declaration that he
thought the Government ought
to do this financing with public
funds at 3 per cent.
That threw a scare into the
lending institutions. Wouldn’t
they look foolish offering money
at 5 per cent when the Govern
ment was offering it on better
terms—Ickes even suggested “no
down payment"—and at 3 per
lck-ti and Moffett
So Jim .Moffett and the folks
who have money they want to
put to work want to know which
of the two policies is to be
adopted. Secretary Ickes is very
close to the Presidential ear. He
also has built up a strong fol
lowing among members of Con
gress, most of whom will fol
low anybody who will spend
pabtie money in their districts.
Jim Moffett is not any kind
of a politician at all. He suffers
under the illusion that so many
business men have when they
Come to Washington, that all
they have to do is to do their
job. That, as everybody who has
been around the national capital
very long, fully understands,
isn-’t the halt of it. Getting a-
round among the boys, making
himself a good fellow with the
insiders, talking to the public in
a personal -way and making glit
tering, though vague promises,
is an important part of the
technique of making good at the
head of any Federal bureau.
Up To President
The Presidjent himself will
have to make the final decision
between Jim Moffett’s plans and
those of Harold Ickes. Mr. Roose
velt has been much interested in
the project of getting building
trade -workers back on the job
without using public funds to do
ii. But a strong group of his
advi.sers. including Ickes, Harry
Hopkins, the Relief Administra
tor, and . some others, protest
that the Moffett program won’t
do the trick fast enough. Look
ing forward to a larger demand
for direct relief this Winter than
ever before and realizing that
the longer men stay off the pay
rolls of industry the lower their
morale sinks and the less likely
they are to ever want to go
oack to work at all, Harry Hop-
I kins is for anything that will
provide, plenty of real work at
real wages and provide it quick.
John Fahey, head of Home
Owners Loan Corporation, is
wisely keeping out ot the con
troversy. His appropriation of
two billions is exhausted, all
having been lest to needy home
owners, and he is uot likely to
ask Congress for any more until
it is decided whether tbe FHA
plan or tbe PM'^-V plan is the pro
gram finally adopted.
. Congress, it is believed here,
will be strongly inclined to give
Mr, Ickes the five or more bil
lions he wants, with which to
enable anybody who would like
to own a home to build a brand-
new one with no down payment
whatever and twenty years or
so in which to pay off the in

On Foreign Debts
The question of debts owed
to the United States by foreign
nations is going to come up for
action when Congress meets.
The report of the economic com
mission headed by President
Hutchins of Chicago University
takes the realistic view that
since we can't collect them we
might as well cancel them, or at
least set a small lump sum for
final settlement. The novel sug
gestion that we might take the

tried to secede from the Union in
1861 in exchange is arousing a

“Why is this ten per cent al

London, Nov. 25.—An atmos

nation after nation joined in the
cry “WTio's your ally?"
In the last few days new
shouts of discord have . echoei
across tbe bbrders' of European
nations. Like children seekibg-
shelter from an approaching
storm, countries big and small
were hunting new security un
der the skirts of alliances with
powerful neighbors or distantly
strategic countries.
Even the United States figur
ed in this new phase of world
politics when the question of a

set Japan’s insistent dehiands-' at
the London naval conversations
for parity in armaments.
Calm counsels in the princi
pal European capitals continued
to believe warfare would be lim
ited to words and that the old
world would escape, as it has al
ready narrowly escaped several
times this year, a repetition

mong 6,008 suppliers scattered
throughout the United States.
“It is estimated that when the
drive to produce one million cars
is in full swing 87 thousand
men will be employed in the

“The Ford 1933 project calls
for spending tremendous sums.
For instance, it is estimated that
tbe bringing in of raw materials
will require 164 thousand freight
cars and outgoing products will
require 160 thousand freight
cars, involving payment of
freight bills, largely to the rail
roads, of 74 million dollars.
“One of the large expendi
tures of major importance,’’ con
cluded Mr, Patterson, “will be
for non-ferrous metals. In ad
dition to the steel made in the
Ford mills, the sum of 63 million
dollars will go for steel in the
