COST OF THE JEW DEAL COMPUTED BY CONGRESS Budge* Out of Balance by Seven BIMlons and National Debt Over Thirty Billions By SNELL SMITH Editor Journal and Republican: Washington — Republican members fo the House and Senate who are pre- paring to run for reelection next fall and yet are anxious to support Pre- sident Roosevelt in anything sound in his program have been quietly ques- tioning the costs to the American people of the \New Deal\ and its re- sults. Here are the questions: Does it mean an abandonment of the policy of freedom of initiative in industry? Will it cause a great increase in the cost of living without an equivalent rise in wages? Will the national budget be unbal- anced during the present fiscal year by between seven and ten billions of dollars? Will the national debt be Increased from$23,000,000,000 to something like $53,000,000,000? Will the national budget be unbal- anced during the next fiscal year by probably ten or twelve billions of dol- lars? Will the national debt in the next fiscal year be probably increased to$45,,000,000,,000? Has the country, embarked upon a permanent policy of the complete na- tionalism of all business? Has the national credit been im- paired by adoption of extravagant ex- penditure far beyond ability to pay? Is a threat of paper inflation and consequent ruin made the more inevi- table by overload expenditure? Does the N. R. A. Invalidate the pro- tection from unfair trade practices and price fixing combinations afforded the small business man and the con- sumer by the anti-trust law? Is uncertainty in business caused by the abandonment of a stable medium of exchange and the adoption of the fluctuating one? Is it consistent to reduce by fifteen per oent the wages of a million gov- ernment employes as an economy measure and at the same time ex- travagantly spend billions otherwise? Is it consistent of the Democratic Party to assail \tariff extortions\ and then increase the tariff rates to the point of embargo? What has become of the promises to put six millions to work by Septem- ber at Increased wages, in face of the two millions out of twelve millions of unemployed put to work at minimum wages by shortening the hours of- those already employed? Is the restoration of the war pow- ers of the Executive in time of peace and the abrogation of the functions of the legislative branch of the gov- ernment on the ground of a national emergency constitutional? Was it wise to call an International economic conference to facilitate uni- formity of monetary exchange and then decline to permit the fulfillment of the purpose for which It was call- ed? Is there a growing tendency toward the suppression by the majority of j any dissenting opinion on the ground that it would be unpatriotic to differ with the President in his effort to pre- vent anarchy and chaos? If the depression was caused to any extent by a cessation of demand for goods, not only in this country but throughout Europe, can the govern- ment itself revive demand merely by a command on the part of General Johnson that everybody buy? Can the constant use of the press, the radio and the movies on behalf of the N. R. A. make it economical and effective if it 1B uneconomical and ineffective?

Proflo Notes Fourth Anni- versary, as Pastor of Baptist Church Last Sunday marked the fourth an- niversary of the pastorate of Rev. B. D. Profio at the Lowville Baptist church, and in observance of the event he took his topic at the morn- ing service \Have I Been a Failure?\ His text was from II Cor. XIII, of the Moffat translation, \I trust you will find I am no failure.\ In addressing the congregation, the pastor said: \The year 55 A. D. when Paul, sup- posed to have written this epistle must have been just as trying as the year 1933 for the church of Christ His authority, as an apostle was doubted with cruel slander by_ j^ven those whom he led to Christ Thtose who wel- comed him at Corinth wi£B~open arms and said all sorts of nice things about him, they also turned against him. But he carried on with a conviction and zeal which put many of them to shame, and at the same time encour- aged and inspired others. Using his own words, \It is no weak Christ, you have to do with, but a Christ of pow- er.\ \With this spirit of a Christ of pow- er, your own humble. pastor has min- istered to the spiritual needs not only of the church's people, but also to the people of the community at large. Nor has the church Influence to meet spir- itual needs been limited to our com- munity alone, but extended for miles around where your humble pastor of- ficiated at many funerals and brought Christian comfort to the living. \Though we have gone through an economic depression, yet we have re- fused to be depressed In the work of our Lord. God has been good to us, and you have been loyal and displayed a sacrificial spirit and devotion toward the church of your Christ. As the re- sult the church in all its departments Is In a most flourishing condition, and church Interests stronger than ever be fore. \Have I been a failure? Tou are to be the judge.' We may entertain * sense of failure in that we could have done more for God and His children. By His grace we will do more during this coming year. And our prayer will be the words of George Herbert: \Teach me, my God and King, In all things thee I see, And what I do in everything To do it as for thee.\ GIRL, 17, AW) MAN, 45, FOUND DEAD IN ROAD FKOi SHOTS James Grin, Auto Mechanic, Hills Miss Rose Grey and Then Turns Gun on Himself < Watertown. — The bodies of James Grill, about 45, of 549 West Main street and Miss Rose Grey, 17 of 585 Morri- son street, were found dead on the ice- covered road of Snell street about 8:20 o'clock Saturday night Both were dead from bullet wounds in the heads.

RETOSENTATWETABEjr M ATTACKS EXPEHMTURES Says if Present -Extravagant Pro- gram\ Is Continued by Roosevelt Administration the Public-Debt Win Amount to $441,000,000 at End of 1995. Washington.—Representative Taber, Rep., N. Y. ( member of the appropria- tions committee, told the house today that If the present \extravagant pro- gram\ is continued by the Roosevelt administration the public debt will amount to$43,000,000,000 at the end of 1935. \We are engaging in a national lot- tery now with the loaded dice of the agricultural adjustment administra- tion/' said Taber. He added that the big expenditures would continue and asserted \until the folks back home wake up, no brakes will be put on them.\ Assailing the cost of the civilian conservation corps, Taber said it cost more to maintain one member of the corps than \it does a soldier in the army.\ 'It costs as much to maintain one man in the corps as it costs to keep three families on the relief roll,\ he declared. \The debt is getting bigger day by day. These tremendous bond -issues are going to strain the sources of credit The government must retrench and stop this wild orgy of extrava- gance we have been Indulging in for the past year.\ Taber also objected to a provision in the independent office supply bill under consideration, which, he con- tended, permits the president to in- crease the salaries of congressmen from $9,000 to$10,000 a year if prices justify It after next Jury. •I don't think it Is right to give power to the president to raise con- gressmen's salaries,\ he said, adding, however, he needed the money \much as anybody.\ as BISHOP LAUDS ROOSEVELT Bishop Fiske Addresses Men's Club said Warns of Stamp hi Faith of Chorea People. Bishop Charles Fiske of the Epis- copal diocese addressed 100 members from Trinity and the Church of the Redeemer at a dinner of the Men's Club of St Paul's church, Watertown, Thursday evening. He expressed the belief, \President Roosevelt's splendid ideas will lead the nation on to better things.\ Long years of prosperity have made American youth very soft, he believes. The average college student is so pam- pered as to rob him of the strength of character to face the problems of today, he said. This softening and loosening of Mrs. Lovina Campbell Park, 90, died ' Friday at the home of Mr. and Mrs. George Thomas, Oswegatchle Corners, after a long illness.

While funeral services for the four nuns who lost their lives Sunday by drowning in the Northern Utilities power canal at Black River village were being conducted, engineers from the state highway department were working on plans to eradicate the danger point on the Black River high- way where the fatality occurred. Samuel H.'Abbey, general manager of the Northern Utilities, said that his company would co-operate with the state engineers on any plan that they adopted to safeguard the public The engineers are discussing various plans of protection, but are not ready to an- nounce any particular plan. Mr. Abbey said that when the Util- ities built the canal, H first obtained permission from the state for the building of the bridge across the high- way. By this agreement the Utilities agreed to maintain the bridge and the approaches on any type of construc- tion designed and approved by the state. Mr. Abbey said the Utilities could not put up any type of guard approach without first obtaining the approval of the state. There has been much discussion of building concrete walls as approaches along the road to the bridge. This plan is. said not to meet the approval as engineers do not believe that even a concrete wall would stand up against the tremendous force of a swiftly moving auto. It is believed that when the present wooden rail approaches are replaced it will be with the latest type of steel cables attached to concrete posts. These cables, It Is said, would stand against the Impact of an auto, give and then throw back the car.

Taylor, in her report as chairman of county affairs at the re- cent meeting of the Lowville unit of the Lewis County Republican Wo- men's League, urged the women to study town and county politics, say- AVALON PROGRAM ing: \It is a source of much pleasure to me that this organization of Republi- can women of Lewis county has start- ed, lta work early. There is much to do. We have approaching this fall the election in this state of an entire State ticket, Including Governor, a U. S. Senator, Congressmen and state le- gislators. In this county also, we are to elect a county judge and surrogate, these are all moat Important positions. \Our work necessarily is mostly lo- cal. Few of us can sway the nation or the state at large. We can, however, to a very considerable degree, Influence sentiment In our own particular sect- Ion of the county, and do our utmost to bring to the polls the. voters of that section. For example, our members, In say Constableville, can talk with the voters there, disseminate among them Republican doctrines, and then see that they vote. Now, if our members in all other sections will do likewise, not only have we brought to the polls the entire Republican vote of Lewis county perhaps increased Republican sentiment in the county and gained ad dltional Republican votes, but we have done air that could be done for the Republican cause. If the same local -work should be done throughout the state, think what a force we' would be, and what we could accomplish. So we don't have to spread over too much] territory. If we just do our part in our own community, and trust that the others do their part, we have, as I have stated, done all that we can, and accomplished much for the Republi- can cause. \I believe that today good govern- ment depends largely upon the charac- ter, ability and honesty of those we elect to office. We here believe in Re- publican principles, and perhaps al- most invariably vote the Republican ticket In this county the Republican party is dominant and quite general- ly vietorlus. Consequently in Lewis county, more than in some other more evenly balanced counties politically, It Is, I believe, the especial duty of the Republican women to see that the proper person is nominated. This duty can only be fulfilled at the primary. The calibre of our local county gov- ernment depends almost entirely upon the calibre of the Republican nominee So, much of our work is in the pri- mary.
