WASHINGTON, D. C, Feb. 8.
Folks generally, and particularly
those who form the mid-section of
the body politic, seem inclined to
look on the "paltry" $725,000,000
just appropriated to continue Fed
eral relief through June 30, as
"small potatoes." Yet, for the re
freshment of memory, it might be
noted that this reduced amount
would have financed Government,
"lock, stock and barrel," during a
full 12-month period of the first
Legislation designed to afford a
more abundant life to underprivi
leged Americans has expanded the
Nation's fiscal imagination some
thing awful. But it seems only a
shprt time .since citizens of our
secluded community condemned
Rockefeller each evening at lamp
lighting 'time as a conscienceless
millionaire the only one we'd
heard of and the word "billionaire"
hadn't much more than been ac
cepted as a human no&sibility.
THE NEGATIVE VOTE of
Senator Bob Reynolds on the ad
ministration bill to restore the
$150,000,000 stricken by House Ap
propriations Committee from' the
original relief recommendation is.
kinda hard to understand. Support
ed for renomination in 1938 (and
without restraint) by the President
and .some fifty-odd thousand PWA
families, the unpredictable junior
North Carolina solon is faced with
the somewhat embarrassing duty
of .explaining a vote which spelled
defeat for Roosevelt and victory for
the less-liberal Garner group in
the first actual test of Seriate
strength. But it must be admitted
that it's newS the "man-bites-dog"
variety when "One-hundred-percent
New Dealer" Reynolds lines
yp with his "unreconstructed" col
league, Josiah W. Bailey, on the
natter of reduced public spending.

Senator's heart) and Jesse Jones of
the RFC, . Governor Max is given
credit for having soothed the sometimes-belligerent
Bailey, erasing to
minor proportions the embarrass

of too-close questioning, and mak

approval of Hopkins.

former officer of the National1
Young Democrats and stalwart of
North Carolina Governor Hoey's
1936 primary campaign, suggests a
"favorite son" vote for "Cousin
Clyde" at the 1940 national con
vention. Harvey Lupton, secretary
to Congressman Folger of the Fifth
North Carolina District, knows he's
a Tar Heel, but can't quite remem

preacher. If you've ever heard his
