degree, but that they are downright untrust-
worthy. The Republicans, he says in all truth,
have nothing for the electorate. The Communists
incur Mr. Pinchot's tacit disapproval.
Then which is the way to turn?
Mr. Pinchot's remarks about a qualified state
ownership are vague, although probably necessar-
ily so. He fails to mention the profit motive, but
since he supported Roosevelt, who has many
times openly given his allegiance to a "just" profit,
he must stand for a "modified" capitalism. The
danger of following this line of economic and po-
litical thought, however, is that it may lead to a
Fascist government which operates "from above"
through cooperative organization of industry and
labor. Mr. Pinchot's proposed scheme of govern-
mental regulation sounds as much like Signor Mus-
solini's corporative state as anything else.
The idea of an America constructed along the
lines of present-day Italy will not appeal to many.
The German slugfests show where economic
chaos may lead a Fascist state of a slightly dif-
fering mold.
The Democratic party has failed, Mr. Pinchot

H OW LONG will capitalism last in the
United States?
Where does President Roosevelt stand?
Does the New Deal have any unified policy for
relieving distress in our country?
To what banner can the young liberal turn
The answers to these questions, or at any rate
one set of answers to them, are contained in a
recent letter from Amos Pinchot, brother of the
former governor of Pennsylvania, to his friend,
Prof. Felix Frankfurter of Harvard. Mr. Pinchot's
close analysis of the New Deal and what it stands
for is made doubly interesting by the fact that
he voted for President Roosevelt and worked dil-
igently for his election.
Mr. Pinchot says, in sum, that he is "no longer
gambler enough to support the New Deal."
Then Mr. Pinchot goes on to state that "Roose-
velt with all his fine, kind-heartedness is failing
because he follows no consecutive line, and appar-
entIy doesn't think things through to the end.
"He permits -monopoly and price-fixing by big
"Then he comes out for the Sherman anti-trust
law. He tries to set up a managed economy, which
is impossible without a fine highly-trained and
non-political civil service, but lets Farley smash
the civil service whenever it's necessary to streng-
then his political machine."
The writer proceeds to attack the Rooseveltian
"doubling-back" money policy, and then basically
attacks the New Deal as follows:
"In general his (the President's) policy seems to
have been, 'Well, if this doesn't work, we'll find
something else.' The only things he has been
consistent in are regimentation and a steady trans-
fer of function from Capitol Hill to the White
House. Already he has concentrated so much
power in the executive that in the hands of any
but the most intelligent, wise, and scrupulous Pres-
ident, it becomes a threat to Democratic govern-
Mr. Pinchot thrashes out the pros and cons of
the Rooseveltian humanitarian moves giving the
brain trust some credit but characterizing many
of the Washington -professors as "moralists with
a short-sighted social worker point of view."
"I've come to feel," Mr. Pinchot says, "that the
New Deal has not merely prolonged the depression,
but pretty thoroughly ruined, for the time being,
the possibility of a constructive political and
economic movement. It has gathered under its
wing . . . the younger, liberal-minded people .--
and has left them in the blind alley of unworkable
regimentation. It has propagandized against de-
mocracy. . . and there's nothing left for them (the
liberals) to do but be inactive or to go clean over
to the Communists, or to a hopeless Republican
Party that has learned nothing from the depres-
sion ..."
Mr. Pinchot expresses next his belief that "cap-
italism has a long time to run in the United States"
and that the only way to make it "workable" is to
"break the monopoly control of men of great
wealth over the tran'sportation system, the na-
tural resources of the country and the monetary
system." He would place "under Government
ownership" not only "railroads, the pipelines, and
other transportation agencies," but "all natural
resources." He favors a "non-partisan, non-polit-
ical authority, analogous to the Supreme Court,
for the control of money."
John Strachey pointed out in his lecture here
some months ago that no Communist who knows
what he's talking about would advocate the down-
fall of capitalism "if capitalism would work." Nor
would anyone else, it seems. Why change if all is
However, it appears that since 1929 all has been
distinctly not well with the world, our own nation
included. But the Communists are not unique in
recognizing this fact. The liberal Democrats, the

Diplomatic Cunning{
Is England's .. .
growing that England, besides hav-
ing the most outstanding individual diplomat on
the Continent in the person of Anthony Eden
has also one of the most shrewd corps in the
world. Although the British have traditionally
denied any particular cunning in the conduct of
their international affairs, the last five weeks
have bared perhaps the greatest diplomatic coup
since the war -and by the British.'
Just five weeks ago there was announced a
new naval pact between Great Britain and Ger-
many - the Reich to confine its navy by the treaty
to 30 per cent of the size of Great Britain's.
While the immediate effect almost precipitated a
break between the war allies, more mature obser-
vation showed the sagacity of the British move.
Here was Great Britain simply admitting an
existent state of fact in allowing the expansion
of German armaments in contravention of the
Versailles Peace Treaty, a contravention which
may logically be supported in international law,
as George A. Finch told an audience here this
This week Great Britain has announced what
completes the coup in the paradoxical statement
that treaty limitations by ratios will have to be
abandoned in future agreements. The statement
is paradoxical in view of the fractional basis upon
which the Anglo-German agreement was reached.
But consideration shows the astute character
of the latest move. With existing treaty provisions
nearing expiration and no immediate apparent
hope of extending them on the old basis, the
British are simply anticipating a reality.
So, when naval negotiations are reopened, it
will be found that Great Britain will be really
speaking for Germany as well as itself in negotia-
tion, for the shrewd British have successfully muf-
fled the Reich by their early commitment of the
Keich to Great Britain on that fractional basis.


Texas has found that the President is a very
good secretary.
Maverick tried for days by phone and letter
to get an appointment with Stephen Early, secre-
tary to the President, but he received no reply.
Finally, Maverick wrote to Mr. Roosevelt: "I
am having diffculty in reaching Mr. Early. Will
you be so kind as to help me in making an ap-
pointment with him?" The next day Early phoned
the Texan.

He received one letter which castigated him
severely for advocating the holding company bill.
It said, "It's a wonder to me such an intelligent
looking mother as yours could have such an ig-
norant son."
Holt replied: "Thank you for your kind remarks
about my mother."
Another man wrote to him: "Money invested
in utility stocks is safer than money invested in
congressional salaries."
Holt replied: "It seems to me your political
judgment is no sounder than your financial judg-

The three living alumni are Representative
Charles A. Plumley, Senator Ernest W. Gibson and
Ruel Small, the oldest official reporter in the House.
The other two were Gideon Welles, Lincoln's sec-
retary of the navy, and Col. Truman B. Ransom,
once president of Norwich, and leader of the attack
on Chapultepec in the war with Mexico.
Welles' picture appears in a painting of the Lin-

Any Shakespearean tragedy in unadulterated
form is certainly a feat making no small demands
in the hands of super-actors Othello, the offering
of the Repertory Players this week, is particularly
difficult, since the plot is purely psychological and
external action in minimum. That the Play
Production group's performance didn not fiasco
may be accredited chiefly to capable direction, and
an excellent handling of the principal role.
The most glaring defect in the production was
the frequent tedium of speeches and scenes.
Though Shakespearean scholars declaim it as
heresy, a judicious cutting would have added im-
measurably to the sustained interest and comfort
of the audience, required to sit through a three
and one-half hour performance.
Frederick Crandall, assistant director of the
company, handled the heavy and exacting title
role with fine skill. The dignity and poise of
Othello in the earlier scenes, contrasted with
his emotional break-down in the latter, were ren-
dered with ease and artistry.
Second honors go to Frank Funk for his suffi-
ciently iniquitous interpretation of the villain Iago.
His smooth rendition of Shakespearean verse is
particularly noteworthy.
Though Hattie Bell Ross as the ill-starred bride
of Othello, performed the majority of her scenes
gracefully, she lacked the stage presence to make
