Roosevelt Expected To Make
Statement Soon on Policies
(Special to The PrM-Maconian) I Learn From Experience
WASHINGTON, Sept. 26. Look! It must be set down as a fact
for some sort of a statement shortly 1 that the Administration as a whole
from President Roosevelt designed learns from experience. Mr. Roose-
to reassure business and industry
that the profit system is not going
velt has been the first to admit that
some of his experiments haven't
to be abolished and that there is I worked out, just as he was frank
nothing to worry about. Those in
close touch with the President and
his intimate advisers say that he
intends to make some such utter
ance shortly. This, coming on the
enough to announce at their in
ception that they were purely ex
periments. So there is ground for
the belief that the re-organization
of the NRA and the easing up of
heels of reassuring statements by i its more onerous burdens upon in
Cabinet members and others, will'dustry, which has been discussed
be intended to offset the rising freely for some time, will actually
tide of dissatisfaction with the
methods of the Recovery program.
How far, any statements from any
source can go in that direction re
mains to be seen. There is a
strong belief here, shared by many
of the more conservative members
of the Administration, that Wash
ington does not yet realize how
deep and widespread the demand
really is for radical changes in the
Leaving political and partisan an
gles out of consideration, for
most of the serious criticism is not
partisan in its origin but comes
from source all over the country
which are uffering economic dis
tress because of what they believe
are impractical theories, there is
little or no personal criticism of the
President. On the contrary a hope
amounting almost to belief is that
when he fully understands the sit
uation he will use his powerful
leadership to set matters right.
Industry and Agriculture
There was nothing political in the
secret meeting at Hot Springs, Va.,
of 150 of the nation's foremost in
dustrialists a week or so ago at
which the whole New Deal was
discussed and a constructive pro
gram of amendment to the present
set-up was agreed upon. How
much influence that may have no
body, of course, can predict. But
with business in general getting no
better, and with prices rising and
wages being forced up while prof
its disappear and reserves are van
ishing, it is not at all surprising
that many of the big industrialists
take an extremely gloomy view of
the situation.
Reports of disaffection among the
farmers in many regions over the
AAA program are coming into
Washington in increasing volume.
There is probably more concern in
high Administration quarters over
that than over the plaints of the
industialists. The fact that Under
secreary Tugwell has gcrre to Eu
rope on an "inspection trip" of two
months or more is taken in in
formed circles here to signify that
he is on his way out, and that his
theories will no longer control the
take place.
It will take time to unscramble
the eggs, but this Administration is
nothing ff not optimisic, and busi
ness men in touch with matters
here are becoming more hopeful
that free competition, which has al
ways been regarded as the "life of
trade," will come back, although on,
perhaps, a higher ethical scale. Al
so, with reservations permitting
"cartels" or similar combinations
in industries in which competition
is not based upon variations in the
Needed Banking Reforms
One great reform which seems
to be on the way will involve fun
damental changes in the banking
system as a whole. It is no new
discovery that the banking system
in the United States is the worst
in the world; economists and bank
ers having been saying that for
forty years.
The recent conference of Govern
ment financial departments and
bank examiners has resulted in
placing the principal responsibility
for bank examinations with the
Federal Deposit Insurance Corpora
tion, and instructions to examiners
not to order loans thrown out
where the interest has been prompt
ly paid, even though there has
been no reduction of the principal.
This and other changes are expect
ed to improve the bank credit situa
tion, though probably not as much
as the Government desires.
A tightening of Federal control
over all bank credits seems inevit
able, and plans which are shaping
for a central bank of issue to
supplant the Federal Reserve and
exercise many of the functions of
the RFC and the Comptroller of
the Currency may provide the
means for backing up the "man
aged currency" program of the Ad
The Labor Situation
Look for much more serious and
impartial consideration of the La
bor situation this Fall and Winter
It is too soon to predict what the
attitude of the next Congress will be
on this or any other question, but
in the Administration the feeling
is growing that the free hand
granted to organized labor has not
proved entirely a success. Much
study is being given to the way in
which England and Australia have
handled the labor question, which
has been a matter of Government
concern in those countries for many
The principle of making labor or
ganizations as responsible as em
ploying corporations, by requiring
them to incorporate and so become
subject to the same sort of Govern
mental regulation as industry is un
der, is being given a good deal of
attention. There seems to be a
strong probability, in any event,
that Federal laws defining "justifi
able" and "unjustifiable" strikes,
the right of picketing, prohibition
of intimidation and punishment for
lawlessness will at least be pro
posed. ,
