A FEDERAL POLICE FORCE AND
A department OF EDUCATION
Considerable sentimnt is being
aroused for the oration of a Federal
Police Force to stamp out crime and
racketeering. The grounds offered for
the stablishittent of such a force is
the weaknesses fevinced by local gov
ernments in dealing with modern
crime, which has become interstate
in its operations the same as legiti
mate business ihterests. Only a “fed
eral. law enforcement unit that will
cover the populous centers, working
quietly, thoroughly and relentlessly”
will suffice, it is contended.
Many do not deny that some dras
tic means must be taken to cut &
criminal activities, but they point out
that the proposal to set up a Federal
Police Force is deciddly revolution
ary. Centralized > polic power, they
claim, is the very power fought in
the Constitutional Convention, tand
hadnot that power been felt in the
sthtes the Constitution would not
have been adopted. If the Federal
Govrnment should assume Responsi
bility for wiping out big criminal op
erations, where would this power end,
they ask. Would it not eventually be
used to encroach upon the political
liberties of th people by crushing
freedom of speech and the press in
the states? i
It is held by some that what is
most needed to wipe out crime is a
vigorous public press which will con
stantly attack wrongdoing in all stra
ta of society, so that the people may
be aroused to replace those public of
ficials who do not enforce the various
state and national laws against
It is declared that fedral laws are
not now always enforced if the vio
lator is prominent in the political and
industrial life of the nation. Hearings
before committees of the Senate and
House frequently disclose this to be
true, it is pointed out. What assur
ance is there, it is asked, judging
from certain laxities of federal en
forcement, that the big criminal op
erators will riot b able to escape pun
ishment even if a Federal Police
Force is established?
Many who have studied th motive
of law violations believe that an
aroused public opinion, the, creation
of social justice in all its implications
and the adequate education ofiboth
children and adults would do more to
wipe out crime than any other means.
These processes are rational and sa
lutary in their effcts, it is held. The
first opens to view the criminal of
fenses and causes*- public nffiqials to.
act without delay; the second strikes
at the caus^' of rriiich' crimfe, arid the
last/equips .the individual, to earn his
way, while it enables him to contri
bute to thS*iftiaintenance of an order
ly, decent sooiety.
The establishment of a Department
of Education arid the appropriation I
of. federal funds, tooaid the various!
centers which have little or no means
to support education, is believed by j
many to be more desirable than the
creation of a Federal Police Force to
strengthen what is termed weak lo

THE NEVER-ENDING WAR
The American public has a war ti
Jight every year. The war against
the accident menace—in industry
the home, on the highways and else
This is not an empty parallel. Au
tomobile accidents alone actually cost
more lives than war. They create as
much suffering. They are even com
parable to war in the economic waste
On a number of fronts this war
has been successful. In the industrial
field, tremendous progress in acci
dent prevention has been made. The
roster of important industries which
operate for months at a stretch with-1
out a single mishap of importance,
is constantly growing. The life and
health of workers in every producing
field has never been better guarded^
because management has been tire
less in instilling the doctrine of safe
first into its employes.
That is also true of children of
school age. Thousands of young lives
have ben save through courses on
caution and accident prevention.
The great failure has been in the
| field of the automobile. Most years
j have seen decisive advances in the
! number of deaths and injuries over
the last. Reductions, the few times
they have occurred, have been small.
The recklss and inconsiderate driver
has scored victory after victory. The
result is that our public streets ancj
highways have become places of car
The never-ending war against ac
cident must be fought with increas
ing vigor if it is to succeed. The dan
