Calls On People To Bear
Greater Share of Burden
President Roosevelt Wends For
Lighten!]*: or Government
FOR HUMAN NEEDS
Washington, Oct. 23.?President
Roosevelt called upon the people of
the nation tonight, to lighten the
load of government expenditures for
unemployment relief through the
1934 mobilization for human needs.
In a radio address opening a cam
paign for private charities, headed
by Newton D. Baker, of Ohio, Mr.
Roosevelt said the government
counted upon a continuation of pri
vate*, contributions to private organ
izations. He called for a "decen
tralization of relief."
"I hope that ybu will well real
ize," he said, "that it is contrary to
a sound public policy to transfer
more burdens to the shoulders of
government if it can possibly be
avoided and, therefore, that private
charity should, as a matter of good
citizenship .be maintained at least
at current levels.
"The other point I would make Is
that none of us wants to eliminate
the personal factor in taking care
of human needs. Surely, none of
you wants to centralize the care of
relief either 4?-j Washington or in
your state capltol or in your city
Mr. Baker joined in the radio
program inaugurating the 1834 pri
vate relief campaign.
The need for the fullest efforts of
private agencies of relief was set
forth by the former Secretary of
War, introducing the President.
"The Federal government," Ba
ker said, "is cooperating with the
state government, and they in tumj
are marshalling the official local
agencies to provide relief for: the
purely material want caused by de
"This in itself is so large and
strange a task, and the govern
ment's response so striking, that we
are likely to forget that it is, after
all, only the additional and unusual
need that is provided for.
"There1 still is left for us, as pri
vate citizens and good neighbors,
the old and customary burden
which neighbors have always borne
and whiph in recent years has been
organized into a great series of
agencies which the fortunate and
the competent have always support
ed and upon which the unfortunate
and afflicted have learned to depend.
Tea* of Address.
The text of President Roosevelt's
radio speech In behalf of the 1934
mobilization for human needs fol
For the second successive year I
am making a direct and frank ap
peal to the country to give support
to worthy local charities of all
You will recognise the necessity
of the general rule which prevents
the (President of the United States'
from asking for assistance or con
tributions on behalf of aiy specific
or'individual good cause. If 'I were
to begin doing thai, I" taduld be oh
the air at least two or three times
In this case, however, there is in
existence a central organization call
ed the "1934 Mobilization for Hu
man Needs." Tiie object of this
mobilization is to encourage and tie
in together the many private organ
izations which are seeking funds to
carry on their very essential and
necessary work for the coming year.
In some communities these organ- :
izations seek contributions from the
public by means of community
chests; in other communities they j
are asking for help separately, but i
Tije- first is that the Federal
government, the state governments
and local governments are all of
them bearing an unusually heavy
load of expenditures for relief and
employment purposes?a load so
heavy that every good citizen should '
seek to lighten it in every way pos- ;
sible. This effort on the part Qf i
governments of all kinds to" bear i
their share of the emergency needs
proceeds very clearly on the as
sumption that the total amount of
relief of human needs, heretofore
borne by private contributions to
I private organizations, will continue
in the future at least at the same
pace and in the same amount as in
I hope that you will well realize
that it is contrary to a sound, pub
lic policy to transfer more burdens
, to the shoulders of government if it
can possibly be avoided and, there
fore, that private charity should, as
| a matter of good citizenship, be
1 maintained at least at current levels.
The other point I would make is
that none of us wants to eliminate
the person factor in taking' care
j of human needs .Silrely, none of
you wants to centralize the care of
relief either in Washington or in
your state capltol or in your city
hall. The decentralization of relief
?the keeping of It In the hands of
private organizations as much as we
possibly can?means that personal
relationships, personal contacts, per
sonal obligations and personal op
portunities to do good wlM be pre
It Is, therefore, with hesitation
and with very deep feeling that I
ask you to support your local
charitable and welfare organizations
in this 1934 mobilization for human
