One of the most important posts in the field of
American politics is not official, although in a
real sense it is an elective office. For many
years George Norris, of
Nebraska, has been not only
a Senator but the spiritual
and temporal leader of the
progressive forces of the
United States. In the darkest
days of reaction Norris has
kept alive the burning em-
bers of liberalism.
In a measure the strength
of his position has been heightened by the fat
that he was not personally ambitious for further
political preferment. His appeal was equally
cogent to men and women of good intent in both
the Republican and'Democratic parties.
Of late Norris of Nebraska has been in ill
health, and he has need of a younger man to
support his arm in the battle. Fortunately there
is an American leader magnificently competent
to perform that function.
And nobody ,need say, "Name him! Name
him!" because it should be easy for you to name
him yourself. Naturally I refer to La Guardia.
* * *
Heart Of The Nation
The Mayor of New York holds one of the most
exacting and important executive posts in the
country. Even his bitterest foe could hardly
accuse him of shirking on any detail of the job.
I am not suggesting even now that Fiorello
should get himself a sample case and take over
every State as part of his territory. But the state
of the nation is a matter of practical concern to
any Mayor of New York. What starts in the Dust
Bowl may very well end up as another relief
problem in the greater city. New York is peculiar-
ly sensitive to the tides of progress and poverty
throughout the country.
And so it is a proper part of La Guardia's civic
duty to give aid and advice on problems of na-
tional and even international importance. Only
the other day the Mayor told City Hall reporters
that, as a reaction to the last election, he thought
it might be a good idea for him to make con-
tacts with some of his old progressive buddies
with the intent of solving the problem "Where
do we go from here?" Later he usaid that at the
moment he had in mind nothing more than
individual and even somewhat casual contacts.
That is undoubtedly the wisest approach, but
before the snow flies very hard I hope the Mayor
will take it upon himself to issue a call for an
informal get-together of progressives from party
and independent ranks.
Some of the so-called Republican "liberals"
seem to me to be a little less than weatherproof,
since they are dolled up in nothing more than a
single coat of varnish. But analysis of Republican
gains in the last election is quite likely to show
that not all the victors are men minded to swing
national policy over to the right of the road or
even to the ruts which lie along the middle of
the highway.
The Mayor Speaks Out
Shortly before election Fiorello La Guardia
spoke for the Republican candidate for Congress
from the 20th District. Marcantonio's mass meet-
ing was held on the "lucky corner" where the
Mayor himself used to hold his final rallies when
he ran for Congress. On this occasion La Guardia
made a brave and a bold speech for the candidate
to whom he referred as "my ering son." This, I
understand, pertained to party differences. Cer-
tainly on this occasion the fatted calf was barbe-
cued for Marcantonio, who goes to Congress for
a second time, after one defeat, to uphold the
traditions set by Fiorello when he represented
that same district."
The Mayor praised Roosevelt as one of our
greatest Presidents, and he had the courage to
tell the Italian-American voters that here it was
their privilege to express their will in an election.

-he Editor
Gets Told
To the Editor:
Behold them in all of their regal splendor
The Lords of the library desk.
In absolute power, they glare and they glower
And ignore the humble request.
Of the myriads of mortals who crowd the portals
And plead and entreat for a disdainful look,
Who fervently pray that sometime today
Their prayer will be granted; they'll receive
their book.

ciency, provides him with a higher annual wage
and assures him of more regular income.
Although job insurance is not intended as a
substitute for relief, nearly 30,000 relief cases
and some 15,000 WPA cases were closed becatfse
of job insurance program within the first two
months of payments. In Wayne County alone,
17,000 cases, each representing an individual or
family in need, have been removed from relief
rolls because of benefit payments within the
three months since the first payments were made.
This represents almost three quarters of the
entire number of cases removed from the relief
rolls during these months. To these 17,000 cash
may be added over 10,000 WPA jobs in Wayne

What Do You Mean I'm Sitting Too Close?

Books For U. S.
"Reading maketh a full man," said
Francis Bacon and all the copy-book,
after him. But as far as the reading
of books is concerned Uncle Sam i
likely to remain as famished a figure
as the cartoons picture him, unless
the United States changes its posta
policies. A national committee, or-
ganized to abolish present. discrim
ination against books, emphasizes the
need for a revision of the law.
One would think the Government
with the emphasis it places on youth
rural and adult education, would
speed the spread of books. On the
1 contrary, it penalizes their distribu-
tion and has ever since the parcels
post delivery went into effect in 1914
New York publishing houses issue
about 80 per cent of all the books pro-
duced in this country. Yet it is only
in a narrow zone around this city
that books can be economically de-
livered by mail. Rates become in-
creasingly prohibitive as themareas
most acutely in need of books are in-
eluded. The Far West is a notorious
sufferer from postoffice exactions
For example, a two-pound book which
can be sent to Yonkers for a dime
costs 26 cents to deliver in Los An-
geles. Yet, by an amazing inconsis-
tency between our Federal laws .and
those governing the Internationa
Postal Union, the same two-pound
book can be sent more cheaply to
Tokyo than to Phoenix, Ariz.
Such a system is stupid. The public
loses, the publisher loses. and the
postoffice loses. When mailing adds
26 cents to the price of a dollar book
the normal sale of that book is re-
tarded. If the book is cheaper the
rate becomes virtually prohibitive
The postoffice shuts itself out of a
revenue a more sensible rate would
assure. Naturally, the publisher dis-
tributes as well as he can by express
or freight. But the postal system,
with, its multiplication of offices, re-
mnais the natural channel for getting
books to those who want them.
Americans can never become a truly
book-conscious public until books are
allowed to reach them at postal rates
which are low and uniform. There
should be no artificial penalties on
reading. -New York Times.
Scrambled Eggs
The favorite dish of America's
most optimistic Utopians was upset
yesterday when California voters
turned out heavily to scramble the
ham-and-eggs plan. Incomplete re-
turns indicate that they were success-
ful despite the fact that the pension
promoters spent more than $300,000
in a vigorous and colorful campaign
to set their pet proposal sunnyside
up before their deluded followers.
The California panacea was con-
sidered the bellwether of all the week-
day pension schemes that have taken
the country by storm.
It will be well, therefore, to examine
the cause of these far-fetched pen-
sion schemes. That cause is insecur-
ity. Since the stock market crashed
