The resolution describes the coronation as "latent propaganda for monarchy," and added that "it is improper for a free republic to participate in ceremony of obsequious homage to an hereditary ruler." It may be stated that the matter of King Edward's romance with Mrs. Wally Simpson Is now discussed guardedly in the British press and with considerable heat by the nobility and churchmen of England. His majesty continues to see Wally frequently but has given no intimation to the world that he will marry her.

BRISBANE Scottie Pup Mascot Livens Things Up! j" THIS WEEK End of the Treaty There is n "era of going the rounds that is quite different or than anything we Good Feeling have had since early In 1929. It is being promoted with a great deal of enthusiasm and present results as well as indications justify the rromotlon work that is going on in the New Deal press agent circles. This era of good feeling is quite an interesting thing from another angle, namely, politics. It Is being used by the politicians again to establish President Roosevelt In the same situation as he found himself at the beginning of his first term in thi White House. I am afraid be is being built up again as superman and. in politics, a superman or his position is bard to maintain in Washington. good feeling" Era the public mind. Business also is Indulging in this era of good feeling. Business always puts its best foot forward, just as lovers do. It wants to develop a spirit of good will on the part of the public and it wants to show its financial backers how things are coming There is nothalong all hunky-dory- . ing wrong in the attitude. It is perfectly logical and human and it is very interesting to see this wave of healthy feeling grow. The important as well as the interesting, thing about this era of good feeling is that to the expert students it shows a gradual, if not conclusive, decline in depression conditions. It proves that things are on the up grade not that they ire at the top yet, but that momentum is being established which may carry the economic recovery to the top if the federal government settles down and treats business with fairness. As I said above, New Deal press agents are promoting this business recovery for all that it is worth. Naturally, they are attributing it to the of Mr. Roosevelt as tr- basic factor in this upward surg of business. The) are capitalizing it to the fullest because by so capitalizing it the political its due share of party in power credit There is no doubt that they will continue on this course because everyone likes to read or hear about improved business conditions, restoration of dividend payments, in creasing volume of traffic, any and all things that show the nation is slowly but surely getting back on its economic feet While the New Dealers are shouting from the housetops how President Roosevelt has accomplished all of these things, there comes a discordant note from business itself. Business leaders. Just like politicians, want credit for whatever is accomplished, whether they are responsible or someone else. They do not care any more than politicians whether the credit properly is theirs. It is simply an exposition of the vain, glorious trait that seems to exist in nearly everyone. gf-i- s Business Is seeking to show that it is pulling itself together, open ing new factories, Whose raising wages, in the Credit spite of NevKneal wfwjs handicaps that some of those""oli-cie- s include. So, business is seeking to counterbalance the politicians and the politicians, speaking through New Deal press statements, are trying to fortify their own position as saviors of the country. Neither one is correct Without doing too much debunking, I believe it ought to be said that President Roosevelt and his associates have executed some government policies that have been helpful to the business structure. With equal frankness, it ought to be said that business leaders have taken the bull by the horns and have proceeded to help materially in putting commerce and Industry back on the right track gain. Neither one ought to take too much credit Some credit i due each but neither one nor both together is entitled to claim all of the credit for the recovery of business that is now underway. The answer to the upward swing of business lies chiefly In the fact that the depression has worn itself out It would have worn Itself out just the same whether the administration was New Deal or Republican. It would have accomplished just as much In the way of expanded buying power and increased production whether Mr. Roosevelt was or whether he had been defeated and Governor Landon of Kansas had been elected at the end of the recent national campaign. I am reminded by this discussion of a remark that the late Eugene Black made while he was governor of the Federal reserve board. On that occasion I asked him whether there were signs of the end of the depression. His reply was, "not yet" He added, however, that the depression would destroy itself as try other depression in history had done and that when this point o exhaustion had been reached. policies commerce and industry would take an upward swing. Then, he added with reference to some of the eco nomic students of the administra tion in power: "It will wear Itself out and good times will come back again and every doggone professor and economic theorist in the world will try to claim credit for it" So, I think It can be said without equivocation that if anybody or any thing is entitled to credit for the indicated recovery movement we had better be fair and admit it was a combination of circumstances, not the least of which was the natural law of supply ai.d demand. It seems utterly silly to me for any individuals or groups of individuals to attempt to corral all of the praise. Those who have access to the mar ket pages of the great metropolitan ... daily newspapers must have been truge Increases Impressed by the fire rapidfrom nouncements coming big in dustrial corporations of waes in. creases, bonuses for employees and melon cut tin z in the form nf riivl. dends for the shareholders. They must have been Impressed, likewise, with the share rise in lty prices that obviously has re flected the expanded ousiness and increased earnings. A prosperous nation may not always be a haDDV one but thpre Is a certain psychology about a prosper- oi i nation that makes it carefree. It is a psychology that makes this average man and woman forget to a large extent about the recent pinch of economic disnlacpmpnts and, as well, those same people are inclined to disregard and give no consideration to the morrow. Let us look into those circum stances. When coroorations or nthpr forms of business have reasonable years in their particular lines, early in tne winter they begin tc see what the year's total will be. They can figure rather accurately what the returns will be in the last two months, say, after they have made their totals for the first ten months of the year. So, whenever they reach that stage in a reasonably successful year they can make their plans for distribution of the profits. Now, we have a tremendouslv high tax rate on corporation sur pluses and we have rather high tax rates on incomes of individuals. Corporations and other businesses, therefore, start figuring how to do the best they can with the earnings of the year. Some of them determine that their employees should share substantially in the profits of their labors; others want to distribute as much of these earnings as they may to their stockholders because such a showing creates a demand in the market for their shares and such a demand is influential in establishment of the corporation's credit for borrowing money if it needs to borrow from the banks. In either event corporation managements obviously give considerations to the tax the corporation would have to pay and I think it is not a matter of condemnation for them to turn over as much of their profit as they can to those interested in the business instead of to a government which wastes so much. To be perfectly fair, It must be said that the money now being distributed either in dividends or in bonuses to workers or in wage increases was earned before the recent election. Its distribution, however, is motivated largely on prospects for the future. In other words, those responsible for these distributions of earnings feel that they can let that money out of their hands. They may not be distributing all of the sums available but the "era of good feeling" is accepted by all of them as indicating the chances for continued earnings are bright I have merely touched on the an- ef- fect of .distribution of earnings among the holders How It of capital. It is Workt Out l"st as important to consider the effect of distribution of these earnings on the laboring classes. Labor has been convinced under the American system for many years that it is entitled to some share of the profits from its products. Employers are taking that same view to a greater extent than anywhere else in the world. When labor gets bonuses or gets increases in its pay, there is a reaction among those workers who have sound judgment that prompts them to do the best they can on their jobs. That is to say, they become contented workers and they are less susceptible to the propaganda of radicals who seek to promote strikes and labor disturbances to further the ends ol communism. That is a part of the era of good feeling at much as the added earnings oi corporations or the enjthusiasm of politicians over victory. (9 Wtitera lfwppr Unioa.

The outside citizen will pray that there may not be too much interference with returning prosperity. A greatly increased demand for tools shows that more men are getting jobs, and announcements of new wage increases, big and little, are many. Twenty-thre- e more firms have announced better wages for 28,000 more workers. An average Increase of $130 a year, less than 50 cents a day. might seem unimportant but it means one hundred and thirty million more dollars that 1,000,000 workers will have to spend, in a year. That is not unimportant England intends next time to devote her energy and strength to protecting herself. Sir Samuel Hoare, first lord of the admiralty, says England has n o "commitments" like those of 1914, that would compel her to send troops to the continent if war should start She will do as she pleases, which means that she will probably stay at home, busy with enemy airplanes, perhaps helping to finance friends on the continent as she did in the Napoleonic wars, as she did before and since.
