Washington, Nov. 13. Business
conditions through the United States
are more p. subject or discussion
among: government ..official nowa
days than questions of foreign pol
icy or national pontics.
The passing of the election has
brought back to sorho extent tho non
partisan viewpoint which prevailed dur

to express opinions that refltct on the
opposite political rarly. There is no
beginning here of a real appreciation
of the big problems ahead. For In
