Declares World-wide Business
Depression Had Origin
:n United States.
Presidential Nominee in 1920
Blames Administration
for Depression.
WASHINGTON. Oct. 12.--James
M. Cox. Democratic presidential
nominee in 1920, said in a radio
address tonight that the world-
wide business depression started in
the United States "and the dread-
ful thing about it is that it could
have been avoided."
Speaking over t h e National
Broadcasting chain. Cox said that
the Hoover administration "en-
couraged gambling hysteria" pre-
ceding the stock market "crash"
and that it "then forced upon an
unwilling people the tariff law
which later accentuated the de-
"We must not lose sight of the
impressive fact." he asserted, :that.
our tariff changes were initiated
when our country was living in un-
precedented prosperity. When the
president signed the now famous
bill in the face of the most rep-
resentative. far-spread and appeal-
ing memorial ever addressed to an
executive, he gave furtherance to
the ills borne of his failure to act
in the face of an inevitable crash
in our stock market.
Blames Over Production
"What is the answer to all this
from Washington?" Cox continued.
"The statement comes that busi-
ness depression is everywhere, and
that not only are the conditions
of unemployment alike in all coun-
tries, but it arises from a common
cause, over-production.
"There is no over-production in
the sense that the president speaks
of it. There is a shortage in the
buying power. If the world were
purchasing normally we would be
manufacturing normally and we
would if we were employed.
"We were the industrial giants
of the earth, the great creditor na-
tion, and we were producing one-
third of all the products of the
globe and buying from other na-,
tions, thus establishing an econo-
mic balance that would have con-
tinued had we' acted wisely.
"When giant America was pros-.
trated she curtailed her purchase,
abroad. This occasioned unem-
ployment there and further dimin-
ished the purchasing power. It is
significant that this thing did not:
start anywhere except in America.'
Attacks Government
Discussing the stock market de-
pression, Cox said the preceding
"hysteria" and the wild dreams of;
fortune were the direct consequen-
ces of administration propaganda.
'The government had the power
of restrain," he added, "but did not
exercise it. The president and his
advisors either lost their heads or
they had become so indoctrinated
with the theory that the stock tape
is a certain index to our economic
state, that they were, no doubt, no
less shocked than the rest of the
country when the diaster came."

The activities of the police ob-
viously were handicapped by the
need of concentrating a strong force
around the Reichstag. It was while
almost the entire police force was
quelling the Tiergarten riot that the
fascists broke loose in the shopping
district. Trouble had been antici-
pated in view of the open hositilities
toward the government expressed
during court testimony by Adolf
Hitler, leader of the Fascist party,
recently at Leipsig, and the opposi-
tion of the communists to the Re-
publican fiscal program.
