World Currency ..-.
S ECRETARY HULL'S plea for world-
wide currency stabilization, made in
Baltimore Thursday night, is encouraging not for
the suggestion, for it has been made many times
but because there is every indication that the
administration is whole-heartedly behind it.
It can hardly be refuted that the constant cur-
rency manipulations of nations everywhere have
considerably increased the severity of the depres-
sion. Time after time some country would re-
stabilize its monetary standard to gain the ad-
vantage in foreign trade, and then inevitably
another country would take steps toward equality.
Other nations would follow and the result was af
chaotic foreign trade system.
If the United States will take the lead and isl
successful, in this move, economic stability will'
be returned to the world much sooner than a
"hands off" policy would allow. The time is now
ripe for such a move and there is a good chance
of success. Things are on the upturn and no one
is quite as desperate as he was a year ago.
Success will bring a steady foreign market,
trade will flow as it should and constant upheavals
will not retard recovery as it has done consistently.
It is, unfortunately, likely that none of the now
prominent Republican candidates will cooperate
with Europe in anything.

W ASHINGToN. March 9.- Presi-
dent Roosevelt may break a party
precedent of a hundred years stand-
ing along in June. If the talk among
Democratic leaders as to what is apt
to happen at the Philadelphia con-
vention has any real basis, he mayI
be the first Democrat in that time tc
be nominated for the presidency by
That is true although Mr. Roose-
velt and his renomination campaign
manager, Postmaster General Farley.
are following a hands off policy as to
abolishment at Philadelphia of the
Democratic traditional two-thirds
nominating rule. Farley so says, and
will make no prediction as to what,
will happen about the old rule in the
convention. There is a general feel-
ing elsewhere in party circles, how-
ev-.l, that the Philadelphia show will
break the precedent.
HOW THING CHANGE
rTHE background ofCthat belief is
a curious commentary on how
things change between campaigns. If
Mr. Roosevelt is reelected, it could be
argued that retention of the two-
thirds rule might prove a valuable
asset to him four years later if he
desired to control, party choice of his
successor as standard-bearer. Per-
petuation of Roosevelt policies may
well be a major issue in 1940 for the
Democrats to settle among them-
And that very fact, unquestionably,
leads some party men today to con-
clude that short of outspoken Roose-
velt opposition to abolishment this
J car of the two-thirds rule, a desire
among luke-warm Roosevelt support-
ers at Philadelphia to prepare in ad-
vance against any passing along by
the President of his party mantle in
1940 will aid the move to throw out
'e two-thirds rule.

What Is Shortening?
To the Editor:
In the past few days I have heard from reliable
sources that over two hundred freshmen were ex-
pelled from this institution for failure to meet the
grade requirements. Primarily, the University
of Michigan's objection to such individuals is

A certain newlywed on this campus had the
desire to make waffles for her devoted "lesser
half." She asked some of her friends for a recipe
for said waffles. They obliged her readily. As she
innocently looked over the recipe, she asked in
all sincerity, "Girls, what is shortening?"
Now I ask you, is there any justice? Over two
hundred freshmen expelled. In most cases it was
probably due to misunderstandings arising from
this complex college life. Given another chance,
many would have succeeded. But they let an in-
dividual remain in school, who, if her brains were

As Others See It_
RECENT DECISIONS of the United1
States Supreme Court outlawingf
New Deal legislation have accentuated the cry
for an amendment to the Constitution giving Con-
gress the power to enact laws designed to pro-
mote the social welfare of the United States. Suchl
an amendment was suggested recently by Lloydl
K. Garrison, dean of the Law School of the Uni-
versity of Wisconsin and a leader in the cleansing
of the New York bar, to a meeting of the Associa-E
tion of American Law Schools, in New Orleans.f
Mr. Garrison said:
"The core of my conclusions is that business
in its main aspects has ceased to be of purely
local significance; that its parts are interdepen-
dent, composing in that larger view a single
national enterprise; that these parts are highly
unstable; that we dare not, for fear of chaos,
allow these instabilities to run their course; that
we must, if we would keep the economic machine
from crushing the backs of the men who support
it, design national policies to steady it, and
that the Constitution does not confer sufficient
national power for such purposes.
"I suggest, therefore, an amendment giving
the Congress power to enact such laws as in its
judgment are seasonably designed to promote the.
economic welfare of the United States."
This pronouncement will undoubtedly draw
forth the venom of the American Legion, the
Liber'ty League and other self-styled saviors of
the Constitution. As were the efforts of the Co-
lumbia Broadcasting System to allow a Communist
to talk on a chain program, it will be branded!
by certain legislators as "treason."
This proposal, however, deserves the respectful
attention of everyone interested in good govern-
ment, regardless of the rantings of Mr. Hearst, the
Republican Party and the lawyers of the Liberty
League. The teachers of law have studied the
Constitution far better than anyone -else and their
opinions certainly deserve to be considered. At
least they are not as likely to be colored by prej-I
udice and private necessity.
ESPITE all the theoretical knowl-
I edge of economists, despite all the
experience imbibed in countless other depressions,
and despite common sense, most of the business
men today continue ruthlessly to cut their own
Most economists agree that one way to bring
about a business upturn is to increase production.
To increase production in a capitalistic country
such as ours it is necessary to increase the
purchasing power of the people, and this can be
done only by increasing or keeping wages on a
steady level, and at the same time reducing prices.
The increased production resulting from such a
step is the essential push which is necessary to
put in motion all the productive factors of this
complicated and easily upset economic system of
Past depressions have shown the utter neces-
sity of increasing purchasing power of the people.

Englishman On Heidelberg.
(From 'A London Diary' in New Statesman I
r[HE TIMES has been running an exceptionally
interesting correspondence on the subject of
the Heidelberg invitation to the British universi-
ties. I thought Sir Charles Grant Robertson's let-
ter final. He states that forty-four members of
the staff of the University have been deprived of1
their posts for racial, religious or political reasons
since 1933. There seems to be no reason why rep-
resentatives of British universities should pay a
visit, specifically to congratulate on its record of'
academic achievement an institution whose claim
to the title of "University" may now be seriously
questioned. Moreover, however much British1
visitors may disown Nazi sympathies, it is certain
that the German press and wireless will exploit
their presence to propagate the idea that the
British universities condone the proscriptive mea-J
sures that the German universities have adopted.I
Any kind-hearted professor who wants to show I
his friendship by going to Heidelberg may expect;
to find that he is represented as approving of
Jew-baiting and of a. Totalitarian State. The most
comic contribution to the discussion came from
Sir Arnold Wilson, who told us that, after a
long interview with Herr Kerrl, the sympathetic
Reichsminister for Church affairs, he was sure
that a way would be found to reconcile the claims
of churches in Germany with those of the German
state. "I seem to remember the same thing being
said about the Jews."
An Imitation Huey
(From the St. Louis Post-Dispatch)
OF COURSE, no one, with the possible exception
of himself, has taken Gov. Talmadge's presi-
dential aspirations seriously, the general impres-
sion being that he is an imitation Huey Long, with-
out either Huey's ability or his personal charm.
But the results of the presidential preference pri-
mary in Seminole County, Ga., come as something
of a surprise to many who have been led to believe
that the blatant, red-suspendered governor at least
commanded a preponderant following in his own
state. Instead, Mr. Roosevelt won a' smashing
We suspect that Seminole County is typical
of Georgia as a whole, and that when the test

The city's code of traffic regulations is being
revised, for conditions, it is alleged, have changedt
since the legal speed limit was fifteen miles an
hour. Now. the fifteen-mile limit was good
enough for the framers of the Constitution, if not
too good for them. So The Conning Tower is
taking this high-handed manifestation of speed-
madness to the Supreme Court, submitting that
there is nothing in the Constitution about raising'
the limit of speed.
It seems that the General's name doesn't
rhyme with "stay good," after all. Yesterday
afternoon a South Carolinian from Columbia
called up and said that it is pronounced there -
and by the Hagood family - Haygwood, rhyming,
with "vague wood."
The Peltons of Hancock County
The Peltons, rich and dignified, went to Europe
occasionally, which was not a usual occurrence for
Hancock County. St. Augustine, San Francisco.
New Orleans, Saratoga, yes, but not Europe!
The souvenirs and trinkets they brought back
were always Viewed with intense interest. They
grew in size with each succeeding trip, until they
culminated in a huge Lion of Lucerne, carved in
wood. This wretched beast, whose dying agonies
were a constant reproach to the S.P.C.A., soon
completely unnerved you. After a call on the
fascinating Peltons, you thought of him all through
the night and racked your brains to find some
alleviation for his pain. You always hoped he"
would be feeling a little less sick on your next
visit, only to find him waiting for you in a de-
plorable state, just ready to expire. If only he
would die, and have done with it!
Another awe inspiring objet d'art which was
anathema to you was a Large White Bust of the
defunct Mr. Pelton. You were impressed with the
fact that it was of Parian marble and carved in
Italy. Italy! Think of that! It stood on a tall
pedestal, and gave you the conviction that Mr.
Pelton had been guillotined and his head mounted
on thatpedestal as an ever constant reminder that
lie was not to be forgotten, dead or not dead!
When you were not suffering with the Lion of
Lucerne you were stealing uncomfortable glances
at That Bust, wondering what would become of
you if Mr. Pelton should suddenly open his eyes.
You would probably die on the spot, thus beating
the Lion to it.
Halfway up the lovely curving staircase was a
niche in the wall in which stood the Statue of a
Lady in flowing Greek draperies. When you were
invited to a party it was polite to ascend to the
second floor and leave your wraps in one of the
palatial bedrooms. You had to pass The Lady
going up, and you shrank in horror against the
supporting bannisters lest she should suddenly
extend the outstretched hand and grab your dress.
Even if you got safely past, you turned and peered
over your right shoulder to be quite certain she
was not coming up after you.
Truly, a visit to the Peltons, glamorous though
it might be, had its drawbacks. B. ROSS
The professional touch is missing in the gen-
tlemen now operating elevators while the grace-
less churls who used to operate them are at-
tempting to gouge money from owners of build-
ings. It is not alone in speed that the bootleggers,
if one may, coin a phrase, are deficient; it is in
landing the elevator floor smoothly and at the
first try even with the other floor. The non-
veterans jockey about, and .then don't quite
make it. There is art in running an elevator,
though we do not see how it is an art that
any devotee can love. S'ome of the men want
$23 a week; running an elevator would drive
most of us mad in one day, and our guess is that
there are many of us who wouldn't do it more
than one day at $23 a day.
