at no one is deprived of the basic
cessities of life, they insist, com-'
,ritive merits of alternative forms of
sistance are only of theoretical im-
Nor can the forms of relief bej
vorced from consideration of the
encies that administer them, local,
ate and national. Federal experience
Ice 1932 with relief loans to states
d municipalities through the RFC
d later experimentation with FERA,
VA and WPA indicate that there
no simple solution.
Originally it was presumed that
PA would furnish work relief for all
iployables on the relief rolls, while
.e unemployables, the aged, in-
pacitated and sub-marginals would
ceive direct relief from state and
cal sources.
Considered a sound scheme in
eory, this policy has never been
llowed in practice. Actually the size
the WPA roster, limited by the
nount of money appropriated and
ailability of projects, has never
ualled the number of able-bodied
relief. And the remainder is left
the administration of local units.
Conscious of the inadequacy of
an states and localities where un-
iployment was severe, employables,
my and taxable 'wealth scarce, the
leral government under the Social
curity Act has assumed a consid-
able portion of the cost of direct
ief to unemployables and has made
ect grants to the states for relief
employables on the basis of sup-
sed "ability to pay." In practice
:h a test is extremely difficult to
aluate and "ability" does not meas-
e "willingness" to pay nor consti-
ional and statutory restrictions on
xation and bond issues. And those
ao urge that the entire relief prob-
e be returned to the states to ad-

minister and finance overlooked exist-
ing facts as to costs and resources.
There seems no escape, economists,
argue, from the fact that the federal
government for some time to come
'must continue to bear from two-
thirds to three-fourths of the cost
of relief. Nor can it hope to exclude
any categories. Evidence laid before
the Senate Committee demonstrated
that the present policy of confining
federal relief appropriations to work
relief was responsible for serious pri-
vation in many communities.
What is needed, economists say, is
a formula which will preserve the cer-
tainty and integrity of a work pro-
gram for able-bodied unemployed and
at the same time provide assistance
for those who do not meet modern
job qualifications.

tended to push Europe into war to
aid the American arms industry.
The Berlin Boersenzeitung called
President Roosevelt "a man who
thoughtlessly seized all means to
hold his tottering position and who
systematically attempted to sow
trouble in the world in order to assist
the dark forces which support him."
Dienst Aus Deutschland said:
"It is noted in Berlin that this is
not the first time there has come out
of Washington to certain papers in
London and Paris the cue for a press
campaign against authoritarian states
aimed at defaming their policies at
any price.
"In Germany this opportunity is
used to show what a critical influence
the aggressive policy of the, Ameri-
can president exercises on the posi-
tion of the world powers."

The American Youth Hostels, Inc.,
an organization which has made it
possible for more than 26,000 young
men and women to travel under their
own steam at a minimum cost and
a maximum of good fellowship in
America, recently celebrated its
fourth birthday.
Hostel travelling is not entirely re-
stricted to hiking or biking, although
these have proved to be the most
popular, according to Monroe Smith,
National Director. Activities are not
confined to summer and spring ttips.
Those having winter vacations plan
cross-country skiing jaunts.
When spring arrives, river excur-
sions will be hazarded in flatboats
and collapsible rubber canoes. New
hostels are already being started along
many good canoeing rivers. Horse-
back riding is also an up, and coming

sylvania hostels are located on the

Youth hostels serve as over-night
hotels for active travellers. Facili-
ties are simple and include bunk
rooms for girls and bunk rooms for
boys usually equipped with double
decker beds, straw mattresses and
blankets. The hosteler carries his own
