Washington, April 1. Rising
prices of consumer goods and the
labor situation are the main wor
ries of the Administration, and
are regarded by many as consti
tuting the "crisis" which Presi
dent Roosevelt spoke of when he
asked Congress to authorise him
to make changes in the Supreme
Court so that emergency legisla
tion would be held to be Consti
That prices are rising faster
than the incomes of most Amer
icans are rising is disclosed by of
ficial statistics of the Govern
ment, and that this process will
continue so long as the Govern
ment continues to operate on bor
rowed money, is the gist of the
warning sounded by Governor
Marrimer S. Eccles, of the Fed
eral Reserve Board. Mr. Eccles'
proposed remedy is to cut down
Federal expenditures and Impose
new taxes, In order to balance the
budget as soon as possible. This
is not in accord with the ideas of
some other members of the Cab

On the other hand. Secretary

Inflation Warning
The force of Mr. Eccles* warn
ing has not been lost on the lead
ers in Congress, who have been
warned many times from other
sources that unless there Is a
firm check upon the present. in
flationary trend there is great
danger of another collapse which
might be as serious as that of
1929 and which. If it should oc
cur before the election of 1940,
would seriously affect the chances
of the Democratic party contin
uing in power. But offsetting
that in the minds of many lead
ers are considerations of imme
diate political concern. Spending
money, particularly for relief,
makes votes; to stop spending it
might lose enough votes in many
districts to unseat Congressmen
who will come uj) for re-election
next year. Also, taxes are un
popular, unless they can be * im
posed only on wealthy Individ
uals and corporations. That those
who are now paying taxes In the
"upper brackets" can pay enough
more to bring the Federal outgo
and income into balance is con
sidered doubtful.
That means that any new in
come taxes must be spread down
ward, to reacfy the lower incomes,
which would be politically risky,
or must be in the form of excise
taxes on commodities, which
might be equally unpopular. How
ever, Congressional economists
and tax advisers are diligently
studying the possibilities in both
of those fields. There is talk of
new excise taxes on coffee, tea,
sugar—which seems quite cer
tain salt, steel and electrical
appliances. Just at present both
Senate and House spokesmen are
saying that no new taxes will be
necessary. That can be dismiss
ed as the usual line of political
talk heard every year at this per
iod in the Congressional session.
The practice has been, and
doubtless will be this year, to
"hush-hush" on taxation until
along in July or August, and then
rush through a new tax bill.
Labor Policy Needed
Out of the labor situation pre
cipitated by the "sit-down"
strikes in the automobile indus
try has arisen a strong demand
for the clarification of the Gov
ernment's labor policy. There is
indeed, no definite labor policy
on which all elements in the Ad
ministration are agreed. The ma
jor item of labor legislation, the
Wagner Labor Relations Act, is
still before the Supreme Court
awaiting decision as to its consti
tutionality. That it is an inade
quate tool in any serious labor
dispute is indicated by the fact
that it has not been invoked in
the automobile strikes. It places ,
no power in the Government to
intervene unless the organized
I workers in an industry call on the
| National Labor Relations Board
J for aid. Employers cannot, under
the Wagner Act, take the initia
tive in calling for a decision as to
the rights or wrongs of a dispute
with their employees, and no
power is lodged In any Govern
ment agency to compel workers
to accept the Labor Board's de
cisions if they should be contrary
to the workers' demands. Regard
less of the constitutionality of the
Wagner Act, there is a general
consensus that an entirely differ- !
ent kind of labor legislation Is
, needed. The Railway Labor Me- ;
jdiation law has worked admira
jbly In maintaining excellent re- I
I lations between railway workers
, and the roads, and under it the j
j railway brotherhoods have not j
i only maintained the respect and
good will of the companies and
the public, but have steadily bet
,tered their own economic condi
ition. Searchers for a new Feder
al Labor policy point to this me
diation law as a good base to start
from, while much study is being
given to the British Labor Act,
which places much more respon
sibility upon organized Labor
than any statutes so far enacted
in this country. ,
Privately a clear majority of
Senators admit their opposition to
the President's Supreme Court
proposal; publicly not so many
are willing to go on record. Seek
ing a basis of compromise, the
proposal to authorize two addi
tional Supreme Court justices
seems likely to be acceptable to
Congress, but whether it would
'be to the President, who has de
jclared he will accept no compro
mise is another question. It is
| possible that out of the agitation
i may come the submission to the
[states of one or more Constitu
tional amendments. More than
twenty resolutions for am end
mends have been Introduced in
both houses. One which has long
been discussed would limit the
President to one term of six
years. Others would limit the
power of the Supreme Court to
declare acts of Congress invalid,
and several of the proposals un
dertake to broaden the grant of
power to Congress to include many
kinds of social legislation and to
take from the states many of the
powers now reserved to them.

Carolina farmers the go-ahead
signal for their annual task of
getting crops started.

Then, too, gardeners and truck
growers are planting vegetables In
preparation for family needs and
commercial markets. •
In practically every phase of
farm activity, a multitude of new
