Federal Administrator Of
Relief Is Next In Series
Of Association
The Hon. Harry L. Hopkins, Ad-
ministrator of the Federal Emer-
gency Relief Act and head of the
Works Progress Administration, will
peak Monday night at Hill Audi-
torium under the auspices of the
Oraftorical Association.
Described in the July Fortune
magazine as "Iowan, veteran of 20
years of social work, student of
Keats, fungi and psychoanalysis, and
spender of $4,880,000,000," Hopkins
will give a personal picture of the
questions involved in the huge gov-
ernmental projects under his direc-
tion when he speaks on "Problems of
Presenting in real life a career
dwarfing those of the heroes in Hora-
tio Alger books, Hopkins rose from
the son of a Sioux City, Iowa, harness
maker through the activities of a
newspaper business manager, politi-
cian and general B.M.O.C. at Grinnell
College to his present position as the'
"greatest spender in the world."
Hopkins has been associated with
charitable organizations since his
graduation from college. He succeed-
ed Jesse Straus as chairman of the
Temporary Emergency Relief Act of
New York in 1932 through appoint-
ment of President Roosevelt, and
when the President projected the
TERA on a nation-wide scale as the
FERA he carried over Hopkins as the
Something of Hopkins' personality

is sketched in by Fortune with the
comment that "He made old-line bu-
reaucrats gasp by his wild slicing of
red tape. Refusing to move into Jim
Farley's marble post office, Hopkins
gets his work done with a compara-
tively small staff in a shabby office
building sprayed with disinfectant
which somehow manages to smell like
a barnyard."
The article in Fortune further says
that Hokins "knows perfectly well
that radicals everywhere regard his
kind of a job as a basically-illogical
obstacle to revolution of any sort, and
that conservatives regard it as an
equally illogical obstacle to their
dream of old-style prosperity.
Hopkins' own answer to the para-
dox presumably lies in a feeling that=
history never follows logical patterns
and that no sort of logic is tough
enough and realistic enough to stand
against the immediate needs of mil-
lions of poverty-stricken Americans,"'
the article concludes.
Tickets for the Hopkins lecture are
available at Wahr's State Street book-
store, priced at 50 and 75 cents.
