The Collapse of the Anti-New Dealers
Pointers given in a recent issue of "The Pathfind
er," place the Republican party in a hopeless posi
tion so far as facing the coming presidential campaign
is concerned According to the trend of the article,
the campaign has progressed far- enough to indicate
that the Republicans can never agree on a candidate
who will even stand a chance of winning in Novem
ber.^ 1'he article goes on to point out that there is
more active hostility between Eastern and Western
Republicans now than there was btween the tradi
tional Democratic and Republican organizations of
a few years ago.
Landon's claims of being against big expenditures
and favoring a balanced budget seem to have gone
by the board._and Vandenburg's fighting issue based
on opposition to Wallace's poliiy of plowing up crops
is fast dying out. largely because the Republicans
were among those who gladly received the benefits
of this pilicy. Even President Hoover's son cheer
fully accepted the benefit of these cash payments.
The Republicans campaigners cannot raise this as an
issue, nor can they get anybody to hear them if they
should happen to do so.
One of the most condemning things facing the anti
New Deal industrialists is presented in the fact that
these mercenary creatures could not resist the temp
tation to boast to the world that business was from
50 to 250 per cent better and tu vote themselves big
gee dividends, higher salaries and rake-offs, and all
the while crying out that the New Deal was ruining
business and everything else.

The New Dealer* have mapped up the Republican*
in advance of the battle and have practical silenced
opposition of every kind. The Republican* at one
time had apparently planned to make the high coat
of living an issue, but when they got the fact* in the
case together they found that the same basket of
groceries that had cost the laborer (6.21 under Hoov
er's peak living now costs the same family (4.80 un
der Mr. Roosevelt.
Those who criticize and abuse the New Deal make
their greatest mistake in thinking that the people are
as easily fooled as they were in days gone by. It
makes no difference bow much criticism we hear of
the public school, it is still the bulwark of our free
dom, and the fieople are now much better informed
as a result of this great institution. The power of
organized wealth is great; yet it cannot compare to
the power of organized knowledge.
The Skies Are Brightening
Roger Babson, who is conceded to be one of the
most reliable busines forecasters in the nation, gives
the following outlook for 1936 business:
Business?10 per cent gain for the year.
Elections?no obstacle to recovery.
Building?beginning to boom.
Labor?more "help wanted" signs and ads.
Stocks?bul market not over.
Farm prices?spotty but total income higher.
Real estate?-active year, rents higher.
Federal budget?two billion dollar deficit.
Bonds?high grades at ceiling.
Retail trade?best in five years.
Advertising?most profitable in years.
Living costs:?mild rise with food bills down.
Summary?prosperity by 1937.
Coming from Babson such a bright picture cannot
be considered as being in any sense political propa
ganda. It constitutes a set of conclusions drawn from
closes analyses of conditions which now exist in the
several fields of business, commerce and industry,
and the final summary is drawn from these conclu
As an acknowledge friend and consultant of big
business, Mr. Babson evidently carries no brief for
the New Deal or for Mr. Roosevelt. But despite the
contention of many business folk that the New Deal
is hampering recovery, he finds after analyzing con
ditions that neither the Roosevelt program nor the
approaching elections stand as factors in bar of re
The du Fonts, apparently en masse, have climbed
on the I.andon bandwagon.
Already bogged down in front by the dead weight
of Hearst, and in the rear by the presence of Joe
Cirundy and Andy Mellon, this rush for seats by the
