Off The Record
By KIRKE SIMPSON
WASHINGTON - Whatever happens to the Guf-
fey-Snyder coal bill, President Roosevelt's re-
quest that it be shoved through regardless of
constitutional doubts, "however reasonable," clear-
ly indicates a definite administration purpose to
seek a Supreme Court showdown at the earliest
possible moment all along the New Deal reform
Special reasons made the Guffey bill situation
that upon which this policy crystallized. As Mr.
Roosevelt pointed out, the bill is a product of "em-
ployers and employes working cooperatively." It
is not a Roosevelt brain-trust issue. More than
that, however, the action the President urges,
doubtful as may be the final fate of the bill,
presumably would avert a coal strike for months.
1,000 DIPFEAING OPINIONS
ET IT IS JUST as obvious that the same con-
stitutional doubts that attach to the Guffey
bill attach also to the labor disputes bill, the social-
security act, and the utility holding company act as
well as to the Tennessee valley project and now
even to the agricultural processing tax system. On
any of these, no doubt, Mr. Roosevelt could find as
he has found as to the Buffey bill, "not ten but a
thousand differing legal opinions." Of any of them
he could say, as he said of the Guffey bill:
"A decision by the Supreme Court ... would be
helpful as indicating, with increasing clarity, the
constitutional limits within which this govern-
ments must operate."
Ever since the NRA decision it has been clear
that the October term of the court may be a crucial
period in national history. What happens then to
purely depression emergency measures, still due
for final constitutional tests and on their way to
the court, would be enough to reshape largely the
political picture now presented.
LETTER IMPLIES POLICY
IN THE NORMAL legal course, it is improbable
that the acts of this session of Congress could
reach the high court for review during the October
term. Only by a definite administration policy of
expediting them, short circuiting the normal pro-
cess, could that come about.
On that basis, it appears likely that a series of
Supreme Court decisions defining limitations of
Federal authority not only under the commerce
clause but as to seeking sociological results via the
tax power is to be expected next winter.

"MAGICAL CITY; INTIMATE SKETCHES OF
NEW YORK," by Vernon Howe Bailey, with text
by Arthur Bartlett Maurice; (Scribners).
rfHERE has been a plethora of picture books
on New York. recently. Most of them are full
of photographs, and many of the photographs ex-
hibit a tendency toward oddness. Familiar scenes
are shot from unfamiliar angles; one sees the
Brooklyn bridge from the eye of an amoeba (if an
amoeba has an eye), and the Empire State build-
ing leans farther from the perpendicular than
the tower of Pisa, because it was shot from the
back yard of a leather shop underneath.
Which is all very well if one wants a "kick" but
not much good if one wants to see New York as it
looks to one not equipped with telephoto lenses for
eyes, and a rotogravure press with which to record
For a year or two Vernon Howe Bailey has been
furnishing the New York Sun a drawing a day,
all of New York scenes, and all drawn in reason-
able perspective. Many of these have been ex-
tremely good, and few really dull. Now a large
number of the better ones have been collected in a
book called "Magical City," and Arthur Bartlett
Maurice has written brief descriptions for each of
It is a treasure for the New Yorker who really
loves his city, for the stranger who wants to re-
member New York, and for those who just like
looking at pictures. Mr. Bailey's taste is singularly
catholic; Fraunces' Tavern shares space with an
uptown subway station, and the famous and beau-
tiful home for Irish immigrant girls on Battery
park is hard by a gorgeous view of the interior of
the Cathedral of Saint John the Divine.
Which is all very nice. There is a further dif-
ference between "Magical City" and the usual
New York picture book. It is that as an artist,
Mr. Bailey has been able, legitimately, to focus
his "reader's" eye on what it should see. By
eliminating, or softening, the inevitable distrac-
tions, he has given the book both life and space.

On Being Wet
Dear Mr. Editor:
I see that familiar old summer sport, the campus
recreation of "Dodge!.the Sprinkler, or I Didn't, I'm
Soaked" is with us again.
The daily watering of the campus green by the
B and G boys may have its mixed benefits but as
for me I'd rather see the grass brown or have the
watering done at night. Of course some may get a
vicarious pleasure and even some heat relief from
the sightly stream, but I don't.
Just today, with the heat (must I say humidity)
at its worst I was walking along faithfully perus-
ing that delectable bit of mid-summer reading,
"Decline of the West," in fact so oblivious to all
worldly care that I completely neglected to time my
passage by the circulating spray. As a result I have
decided to make a polo shirt and tennis trunks like
The Fourth Year Of RFC
THE RECONSTRUCTION Finance Corporation,
legally created by the President's signature on
Jan. 23, 1932, is now almost three and a half years
old. Dedicated to a good Samaritan career, it has
had a fairly exciting life. True, its lines have not
fallen exactly in the pleasant places conceived by
its sponsor. Mr. Hoover, but then events always
have had an impish genius for scrambling "the
best-laid plans of mice and men."
When he signed the bill, Mr. Hoover explained
that "its purpose is to stop deflation in agriculture
and industry . . . It is not created," he asserted,
"for the aid of big industries or big banks. Such
institutions are amply able to take care of them-
selves." But today, in the fourth year of RFC,
the Federal government is a stockholder in 33 of the
country's 100 giant banks. It is also a partner
in 6,400 of the 14,400 smaller banks. Such is the
report of the Chicago Tribune, which has com-
pleted a second investigation of the corporation's
activities. The Tribune finds that the "banks
are slowly buying back their independence"; that
is, they are paying off the government's loans, as
revealed by the fact that "whereas the RFC held
stock in 39 of the 100 largest banks on March 31,
1934, it now holds stock in only 33." The gov-
ernment's investment in the smaller banks is placed
at one billion dollars.
Meantime, the "big industries," which Mr. Hoo-
ver thought were so "amply able to take care
of themselves," have found the government to be
"the shadow of a great rock in a weary land." The
railroads have borrowed nobly from RFC, though
not so gallantly as they would have liked to do.
The Tribune has not calculated the total of the
government's railroad loans, but just as this cor-
poration has made Uncle Sam our biggest banker,
so it has made him our biggest railroad operator,
There were those who feared, at its birth, that
the RFC was not going to be merely a big brother
to the little fellows in distress, as Mr. Hoover fondly
foresaw. There were those who felt that, when
the government set itself up as a money lender,
saying, "Come unto me all ye that labor and
are heavy-laden," that the invitation would be en-
thusiastically accepted - by the great and the
small, the powerful and the weak, the rich and
the poor, the quick and the dead. The Post-Dis-
patch was among the number to suspect that here
was an adventure in socialism, launched by an ad-
ministration and lauded by a constituency that
looked with trembling and loathing on anything
wearing a Socialist tag.
But that is what the RFC was, and is.

the United States in television. Great Britain
