Buying Power
To $hun Corruption, raft
OrFavor;Taxpayer Must
Get Money's Worth
By HAROLD L. ICKES
(Secretary of .the Interior and Fed-
eral Administrator of Public Works)
(EDITOR'S NOTE: This is the first
of a series of daily articles written by
the men who are directing the far-
flung recovery effort of the federal ad-
ministration. In it secretary Ickes re-
ports on the progress of the gigantic
public works program.)
We of the public works adminis-
tration are engaged in a mighty ef-
fort to restore purchasing power in
the United States.
Our part in the general recovery
plan is to move menfrom relief rolls
to payrolls as quickly as possible.
In doing this it is our desire to
make possible useful public works of
social value and lasting benefit to the
communities in which they are built.
And while we are doing this we'
are determined to administer the
$3,300;000,000 public works fund with-
out favor, graft or corruption.
We are moving ahead rapidly, but
also with great care. We are not
forgetting that the taxpayers of this
country are paying the bill. Every
dollar spent is a hard-earned Ameri-
can dollar. We will do our level best
to see that the taxpayer gets his
money's worth.
Obviously it takes time to investi-
gate thoroughly the thousands of
applications that are made to the
p u b l1i c works- administration for
funds. But we are working day and
night to speed the program.
Although the law has been on the
statute books only since June 16, al-
ready nearly a billion dollars have
been allocated. The President has
appointed 10 regional advisors and
4-8 .state advisory boards in the de-
centralization plan of handling non-
federal projects. The headquarters
organization in Washington is being
perfected rapidly.,
The .public works act provided an
appropriation of $400,000,000 for cer-
tain classes .of roads. This money
has been: assigned equitably, and a
number of states are ready to begin
actual construction operations. The
President by executive order set aside
$238,000,000 for naval construction,
and the navy department already has
awarded -contracts for new ships.
Other allotments have been made for
purely federal projects, and work
soon will be under way throughout
the country.
With the appointment of state ad-
visory boards interest now will cen-
ter on state, -municipal and other
non-federal projects which must be
approved by the state boards before
coming to Washington for final ap-
proval.
No nation in the history of the
world has. ever undertaken such an
ambitious program. The problems
we face are many and difficult. We
believe we are on the right track.
With the continued support of the
American people and under the in-
piring leadership of the President
we are bound to succeed.

Comstock Will Answer Recall
ACtion With New Deal Results

DETROIT, Aug.7.-(AP)--Gov. Wil-
liam. A. Comstock expects to answer
critics of his administration-with
results.
Addressing a crowd estimated at
2,000 Sunday .night in an off-season,
Democratic-rally arranged to combat
a recall movement, the governor de-
clared:
"What the public wants is results
from the new deal. We've started
things. I'm certain they will come
out all right. I'll stake my future on
those accomplishments.""
Nevertheless, the governor served1
'notice that he is looking for the per-
son responsible for "innuendo and
canards" he said were being circu-
lated over the state.
"It is beneath my personal dignity
and the dignity of the high office It
hold to answer them," he said. "I
refuse to pay attention to the in-
nuendo and canards circulated main-
ly by disgruntled job-seekers, trouble-
making. lobbyists and maliciously
partisan newspapers.
"I would like to find the person
responsible for these charges. They
have even hinted at graft and dis-
honesty in my administration. But
always the lying scoundrels hide be-
hind someone else. The newspapers
which pass it on do so in broad terms.
Not one specific charge has been pre-
sented. I am waiting for it and ready
to meet it."
Democrats, he said, have "consti-
tuted the party of criticism so long
that we don't know what it is to be
criticized." "We've got to learn to
take criticism,' he continued. ,I
welcome constructive c r i t i-c i.s m,"
whether it be from Democrats or
Republicans. But in. the old days
when I led the minority, I waited for
the campaign before offering; criti-
cism. There are ethics to be observed
in politics just as in business and in
private life. The party that doesn't
respect them soon comes to grief."
"You can't make a superman and
statesman out of an ordinary human
being, who is justhas broke' as you
are, by tacking the title of governor
before his name. He's just ths same
man he always was,. The only dif-
ference between you and him is that
he has a whale of a lot more respon-
sibility. Certainly you owe him sup-
port from the time you put him in
office to represent the principles of
democracy."
Gov. Comstock complimented the
Legislature which he said had passed.
"more constructive remedial acts
than any ten former legislatures."
"They blundered around some and
the ford only knows how they got
so much done," he continued. "They
did it because their hearts were, right,
and their intentions were right. Some
of them showed a tendency to listen
more attentively to selfish, interested
lobbyists. than to_ their own party

cloth" upon that veto and upon the
"popular clamor created by lobbyists
who filled legislative galleries."
Of his patronage problems, the
governor said that many persons
"seem to have regarded the gover-
nor's office as just a glorified unem-
ployment relief agency," adding that
there have been 3,000- applicants for
75 jobs as tales tax inspectors.
"I'm sorry the state didn't have
enough jobs for all the, deserving
Democrats," he said, "but it just
couldn't be done, especially with the
people demanding economy and effi-
ciency in government."
He told of -plans for a "fact pre-
senting" accounting of -his adminis-
tration this fall in frequent addresses.

Arizona Voters
Pass On Repeal
Question Today
Drys Concede Defeat As
They Lose Court Battle
To Prevent Voting
PHOENIX, Aug. 7.-(P)-Arizona
voters will decide today whether this
state is to become the twenty-first
in the union to sanction repeal of
the eighteenth amendment.
Having lost, five says before the
date of election, a court battle to
restrain the casting of ballots, an-
ti-repeal forces conceded that the
popular vote of the state likely would
be overwhelming in favor of ratifi-
cation.
In a contest at -the polls, "dry"
forces are confronted not only with
a.record of a 2 to 1 vote by which
the state prohibition enforcement
laws were repealed last November,
but with the fact that their's must
be a .write-in campaign for conven-
tion.delegates.
Under an enactment of a recent
special session.-of the eleventh Ari-
zona legislature, 14 delegates-one
from each county-were to be nom-
inated by counties and elected by a
vote of the state-at-large, en bloc.
No anti-repeal candidate was nom-
inated in any county. Official ballots,
started on their way to polling places
as soon as the smoke of an injunc-
tion battle had cleared, contained the
names of 14 delegates only, all pledg-
ed to repeal. Blank spaces are there,
however, for the use of voters desir-
ing to write in-"drys" names.-
In nine counties no candidates ap-
peared' to contest for . seats at the
convention. In five others, candi-
dates did circulate petitions, but in
no: case were they able to obtain
sufficient signatures to certify their
names to the ballot.
. The court fight to prevent a pop-
ular vote on repeal started shortly
after the regular session of the leg-
islature had enacted a statute setting
up machinery for an election.

had vetoed his proposal to use the
military to end the strike forcibly.
The House went first into secret
session at 3 o'clock, but opened its
doors an hour later and, waiving the
rules, heard read a bill signed by
Carmelo Urquiaga, leader of the ma-
jority, authorizing the President to
suspend guarantees for 30 days.
The Senate meeting did not begin
until 5 o'clock.
Ambassador Welles described the
political situation as most grave after
his conference with political chiefs
of various groups. -
His formula for settlement, Mr.
Welles said, was acceptable to the
entire opposition, and to the heads
of conservative groups whom he had
been able to see. The leaders of the
Popular Party were unanimous for it,
he said.
President Machado received all im-
portant Liberal .leaders for a consul-
tation this morning, but the results
were not announced.
Seeks Washington's Advice
It was reported this evening that
the Liberal group informed the Pres-
ident that his retirement was neces-
sary and Senor Machado replied that
he would seek to obtain information

from Washington as to the extent' of
Ambassador Welles' powers in his
mediation efforts here.
Several clashes between. strikers
and police occurred at Santiago to-
day, one striker being killed and six
wounded by gunfire.
At Camaguey the railrogd syndi-
cate declared its solidarity with the
national railways strike and voted
to walk out tomorrow morning at
8:30 o'clock. The workers are asking
for an agreement providing restora-
tion of their former salaries and an
eight-hour day. Hotel4, restaurants,
drug stores and theatres were closed.
Newspapers did not publish. The
army was controlling the towns of
Regia and Guanabacoa, near Havana.
A station of the ABC political
group announced late today that Ma-
chado was resigning within 24 hours,
and thousands of persons thronging
the streets thereupon cheered wildly.

CHICAGO, Aug. 7.-(R)--A 16-
year-old youth with a sewed up heart
was alive today and his physician
said the delicate operation performed
after the victim was mysteriously
stabbed by an unidentified assailant
probably would be successful.
The boy, .Elihu Garmissa, was
rushed to Lutheran Deaconess hos-
pital late Saturday night by police
immediately after the attack, and
with not a moment to waste, Dr. J. D.
Koucky, assistant professor of surg-
ery in the University of Illinois school
of medicine, operated.
"The heart had stopped beating
when the boy was placed on the op-
erating table," Dr. Boucky said.,
Thirty seconds later the opera-
tion would have been futile, he said.
As to the number of stitches, he said,
he knew he took four to close the
inch-long wound, but that in his
haste he may have taken five.
- Following the operation theheart
was massaged until it resumed" its
normal beating. In giving Garmissa
a 75 per cent chance to recover Dr.
Koucky said the greatest danger now
lay in the possibility of an infection
developing.
The attack occurred as the youth
was walking home. His assailant fled.

He explained that he had vetoed
the chain store tax because "either
the chain store tax or the sales tax
is unconstitutional-maybe both,"
and a veto was necessary to remove
from jeopardy the sales tax upon
which the state is dependent for its
principal revenue.
He blamed much of the "back state
