THE PERKINS JOURNAL / PRESIDENT PUSHING FORWARD 8OCIAL REFORM PROGRAM RESULTS OF ELECTION, By EDWARD W. PICKARO , Western Newspaper Union, ITH the election In the back- ground, President Roosevelt is ready to push forward more rapidly his ambitious plans for what he calls "the abundant life" in this country. So he has appointed a large advisory council to aid in formulating and getting through congress his program of social reforms. The chairman is Frank P. Graham, president of the University of North Carolina, who has been serving as vice Frank P. chairman of the NRA Graham consumers' advisory board. He and his colleagues, all known to be New Dealers or in close Aympathy with the New Deal, are asked by Mr. Roosevelt "for advice and counsel In development of a program for unemployment Insurance, old age security and adequate health care." Among the better known members of the council are: Prof. Raymond Moley, chief of the original Roosevelt brain trust; Pat Kellogg, editor of the radical magazine,. The Survey, and a leader In many soclaUstic movements, and Henry Ohl, president of the Wisconsin State Fed- eration of Labor, a progressive rad- ical; Gerard Swope, president of the General Electric company, and Walter R. Teagle, president of the Standard Oil Company of New Jersey, both of whom were in large measure original sponsors of the NRA, and both of whom served as chairman of the NRA Industrial advisory board; Grace Abbott, former chief of the federal children's bureau; Belle Sherwln, for- mer president National League of Women Voters; George L. Berry, pres- ident International Printing Press- men's union ; William Green, president of A. F. of L. ;Gov. John G. Wlnant of New Hampshire, and Louis J. Tabor, master of the National Grange. Work on the social program already is well under way and an executive committee has laid the groundwork. Also Miss Frances Perkins, secretary of labor and chairman of that execu- tive committee, has named an advisory committee of physicians and surgeons that, according to advance rumors, will report a program that will be "revolu- tionary almost to the point of estab- lishing socialized medicine." This medical group is headed by Dr. Har- vey Cushing of Yale whose daughter Betsey Is the wlfe of James Roosevelt, son of the President. Secretary Perkins announced that other committees were being organized to aid in the formation of plans for federal intervention in problems of public health, hospitaUzatlon, and den- tistry. All members of these committees and other interested citizens were in- vited to attend the first "national con- ference on economic security," to be held in Washington, lasting three days. NOTHER program that is being rapidly prepared by the Presl- dent'i advisers for action by congress has to do with the nation's natural re- sources, and the necessary legislation is being drafted by the national re- sources board. It is of utmost impor- tance and in Washington there is a be- lief that it may lead to government control, and possibly government own- ership, of all timber lands, oll reser- voirs and coal fields, and government dominion over all existing and future water power developments on the na- tion's lakes and river ENATOR THOMAS and his fellow inflationists were not pleased with the President's choice of a new gov- ernor of the federal reserve board to succeed Eugene Black. He picked Marriner S. Eccles, a Utah )ank- er, whose ideas of in- flation are not at all those of Thomas, for they do not include flat money. Mr. Eccles believes in "credit ln- flatlon"; he would control the reserve banks' purchases of government securltls, issue money against Martinet $. these purchases and Eocles spend the new money for government bonds, thus creating an endless chain of credit arrangement. So long as this chain were maintained unbroken, the government's credit would be Inex- haust|ble. Something like fifteen billion dollars, according to Mr. Eceles, should be spent by the government for public works and housing projects, and he thinks this vast sum can be obtained by following out his monetary plans. RIZONA Is determined to prevent the construction of the Parker di- version dam across the Colorado river unless it gets what it considers its share of the hydro-electric power to be developed by that project. Gov. B. B. Moeur declared a "war zone" on the Arizona side of the river at the dam site and sent a detachment of National Guardsmen with rifles and machine guns to halt work there "It's a showdown this time," Moeur said, "we are going to get sometlling or we aren't. And If we can't expect anything, we want to know it before this project is farther advanced." W. P. Whttsett, chairman of the Los Angeles metropolitan water district board of directors, said he "heartily agreed" with Governor Moeur that Ari- zona should have one-half of the power privilege at the Parker dam. "It is to be hoped that the federal government and the state of Arizona will be able to reach an accord en- abling the construction work to pro- ceed," he said. "The advantages which will accrue to both Arizona and Cali- fornia more than Justify the building of Parker dam at this time." RESIDENT ROOSEVELT and his fellow New Dealers had every rea- son to gloat over the results of the elections, for, generally speaking, their policies and acts were endorsed by the cltl. lens of the United States by what amounted to a real landslide. The Demo- crats gained nine seats in the United States senate ; and on incomplete r e t u r n s, appeared to have Just about held their pres- ent strength In the lower house. Joseph Guffey Outstanding among the many Demo- catic victories was that scored in Pennsylvania. That state has not pre- viously sent a Democrat to the senate in a half century, but thls time Joseph Guffey, the party boss, rode rough- shod over Senator David A. Reed, lead- ing adversary of the New Deal, and sent him to the discard. Two other persistent critics of the administration who were regred were Senator Simeon B. Fess of Ohio, beaten by former Gov. Vic Donahey; and Senator Arthur R. Robinson of Indiana, soundly walloped by Sherman Minton. Hatfleld of West Virginia, Walcott of Connecticut, He- bert of Rhode Island, Kean of New Jersey, Goldsborough of Maryland and Patterson of Missouri, all Republican senators, must give up their seats re- spectively to young Rush D. Holt, Francis To Maloney, Peter G. Gerry, A. Harry Moore, George L. Radcliffe and Harry S. Truman, all Demodrats. Upton Sinclair, the extreme radical, had the fun of scaring California out of its wits with his EPIC campaign for the governorship, and at little or no expense to himself; but tbe national admlnistrntlon had turned him down and the Republican nominee, Gov. Frank F. Merrlam, won by a handsome majority. Wisconsin remained true to the Ea Follette dynasty even though it had created a new "Progressive" party for Its own use Senator Bob La Follette had been patted on the head by President Roosevelt, and John M. Callahan, the Dem- ocratic nominee for the senate, was not ac- ceptable to the admln- istration because he was a friend of A1 Smith; so Bob came through with a big plurality over Calla- han and John B. 8herman Chapple, tile Repub- Minton llcan candidate. To clinch the victory of the third party, Philip La Follette was elected gov- ernor again, defeating Gov. Alber Sehmedeman, Democrat, and Howard T. Green, Republican. There was a crumb of comfort for the Republicans in the reelection of Senator Arthur H. Vandenberg of Michigan, who has condemned parts and espoused other parts of the New Deal. One other crumb, less comfort- ing, was afforded them in Maryland where Albert C. Rltchle was defeated in his attempt to annex a fifth consecu- tive term as governor. He was beaten by Harry W. Nice. The old line Republicans succeeded In re-electing Senator Austin in Ver- mont and Senator Townsend in Dela- ware. Illinois, New York and Massachu- setts were among the states that were swept by the Democrats. In the first named they took five house seats from the Republicans, the defeated includ- ing the veteran Fred Britten. New Yorkers returned Dr. Royal S. Cope- land to the senate and H. H. Lehman to the governorship by tremendous ma- Jorities. Senator David L Waish was re-elected in Massachusett& and Jim Curley, three times mayor of Boston, was made governor. In the main the Democratic cam- paign had been skillfully conducted un. der the leadership of Postmaster Jim Farley. A fight to oust the "ins" al- ways is difficult, and the Republicans in their hearts had not hoped for much. They did not get even the little they had expected. For at least two years President Roosevelt is assured of full support by congress for what- ever policies and experiments he may undertake, and the voters of the na- tion have told him to go ahead and do what he can to restore the country to prosperity. OM MOONEY, who has served 18 years of a life sentence for com- plicity in the San Francisco Prepared- ness day bombing In 1916, may yet win release. The United States Supreme court consented to ,lye at least pre- liminary consideration to his case, and that is a big point in his favor. The court ordered the warden of San Quentin prtson to show cause within 40 days why counsel for Mooney should not be granted leave to file a petition for a writ of habeas corpus. The order of the court does not mean that It will review the case, a question that would be determined after the filing of the petition. Whether the petition even may be filed will depend, in a largo measure, on the answer of the California state authorities. ELEBRATIONS of Armistice day In the United States and the allied countries of Europe were generally marked by warnings of the dangers of another terrible war in the not distant future. At Arlington national cemetery President Roosevelt quietly laid a wreath of chrysanthemums on the grave of the Unknown Soldier while military detachments stood at atten- tion, and then, as taps sounded, Mrs. Roosevelt stepped forward and placed a single white flower at the foot of the shrine. National Commander Bel- grano of the American Legion was one of the speakers at Arlington, and called for adequate defense of the nation against both foreign foes and the forces of unrest that are attacking our insti- tutions. In Detroit were buried the bodies of nine members of the American expedi- tion that was sent to Archangel, Rus- sia, during the war. They were brought back last September and were interred on Armistice day with full military aonors. French radicals and nationalists ade the day an occasion for political demonstratious that in places amount- ed to riots. In Paris there was grave disturbance, but the police managed to preserve the peace. ASTON DOUMERGUE, utterly un- able to make headway against the olitical schemers in the French cabi- net, has resigned the premiership and returned to the retire- meat from which he was called last Febru- ary to save the coun- try from imminent civil war. The slx Radical Socialist min- Isters, determined to frustrate his plan for constitutional reform, refused the premier's offer to postpone dis- cussion of this scheme Gaston until after a regular Doumergue budget was voted, pro- vided the chamber of deputies first passed a three months' budget. Dou. mergue thereupon read his resignation. and at the suggestion of Edouard Her- riot, leader of the Radical Socialists, the entire cabinet resigned. President Lebrun immediately asked Plerre Laval, foreign minister, to form another coalition government, but he refused the commission. So the difficult lob was turned over to Pierre-Etienne Flandin, a left Republican who was minister of public works in the Don. mergue cabinet. The crisis aroused fear of armed conflict in Paris between the Socialists and the so-called Fascist groups, for both these parties called on their mili- tant elements to be ready for action. N A cablegram to the League of Na- tions, Chancellor Rlart of Paraguay said his government could not accept a truce in the Chaco war In return fo international guarantees, as was pro- posed by the league. Riart insisted that an end to hostilities should come before negotiations are undertaken to solve the war and to arrange definite terms for peace. However, Paraguay accepted the principle that the conflict proper should be settled by concili- ation. The Chaco consultative committee of the league asked the secretary gen- eral to request the United States and Brazil to collaborate in ending the war. EVEN states voted on repudiation of prohibition and only Kansas, still stoutly Republican, remained dry. The others, all turning wet, were Flor- ida, West Virginia, Nebraska, South Dakota, Wyoming and Idaho. In Nebraska Senator George Norris succeeded In putting over his pet amendment to the state constitution providing for a small one-house legisla- ture, and there is a belief that he will run for governor in 1936 to guide the experiment. Under the amendment, the 1935 legislature will pick a number of legislators---between 30 and 50--for itJ one-house successor. Annual real. aries will be determined by dividing the number Into $37,500. IMPROVED "q'''m UNIFORM INTERNATIONAL UNDAY / CHOOL Lesson ( REV. P. B. FITZWATER. D.

PRIMARY TOPIC--The Right Use of God's Gifts. JUNIOR TOPICHow to Use What We Have. INTERI,LDIATE AND SENIOR TOP- ICWhat We Owe to God. YOUNG PEOPLE AND ADULT TOP- IC.--Stewardship of Servlce. Stewardship here includes one's self and substance--stewardship In money is only a small part of our responsi- bility. God has entrusted each of his servants with certain gifts, and will hold each responslbIe for the use ha makes of them. God has lent us capi- tall, and one day will require of us a report of the business we have doru with it. By talents is meant whatever gifts and powers we possess as gifts from God, whether of nature or of grace, such as strength, reason, knowl- edge, Influence, films, money, ability to speak, sing. I. The Distribution of the Talents (w. 14, 15). 1. It was a sovereign act. He called his own servants and distributed to them his own money. AS the one who created us and owns us, he has as- signed us our places and given us our several powers, intending that we put them to the best possible use. 2. It was an intelligent act. The dis- tributlon was made according to "sev- eral ability." The God who made us knew our ability to rose gifts, there- fore he made the distribution upon that basis. A recognition of God's sov- ereignty and ltelligence regarding the distrJbution of his gifts will make us content in our sphere of labor. 3. It was a purposeful act. The tal- ents were given to be traded with. They were not given to be used for personal gain and profit, but as stock in trade for the enrichment andglory of the Master. II. The Employment of the Talents (vv. 16-18). 1. All the servants recognized that the talents were not their own--that they were responsible to the Lord for the use made of them. We are not re- sponsible for the creation of gifts, but for the employment of such gifts as have been given unto us. 2. Two servants used their talents. The five-talent man put his to use and gained five more; the two-talent man put his to use and gained two more. This shows that God's gifts can be In- creased. The exercise of any gift In- creases it. It is not primarily a ques- tion as to what we have received, but as to what use we have made of what we have received. 3. The one hid hls talent. The crime of the one-talent man was not that he had but one talent, but that he hid the talent whlch the Lord gave him. He did nothing with it. To hide a talen{ may be Just as hard or harder than to use it. III. The Accounting for the Talents (vv. 19-30). 1. Its certainty (v. :[9). There Is a day coming when we all must give an account of our stewardship. There Is absolutely no escape. 2, The time (v. 19). The time of ac- counting will be at the second coming of ChriSt. The lncntive to faithful. hess is the coming of the Lord. 3. The :Judgments announced (v. 20-30). a. Reward of the faithful (vv. 20-23). (1). Praise, "Well done." All like to be praised. From child- hood on through llfe, commendation is pleasing. (2) Promotion, "Be thou ruler over many things." Much of that to which we look forward In life fs the passing from lower to higher privileges and positions. (8) Entrance upon the Joy of the Lord. The five-talent man and the two- talent man received the same praise and the same promotion. b. Punishment of the faithless (vv. 230). (1) Reproach, "Thou wicked and slothful servant." To be called lazy is a reproach which even the lazy man dislikes. (2) Stripped, "Take therefore the talent from him." The talent entrusted to him was to be taken from him. (3) Cast out, "Cast ye the unproflt. able servant into outer darkness."
