A Professor With Feet on the Ground
ALBANY college is hot a large institution but it has one
rare distinction. It has a professor of. economics who
' doesn't wear his hair long and isn't a socialist. In these days
when theorists are in full flower and their theories most all
are pink-tinged, that is an unusual fact. The professor is
, Glenn Holmes and he told the members of the Salem Ad club
vrFriday that the system of profit in business" was not only the
most practical yet evolved, but was ethically sound. He did
not justify exploitation or the accumulation of speculative
profits. But he did state plainly that the lessons of history
showed the foolishness of socialism and demonstrated the
soundness of the economic system which offered a legitimate
reward to the person of enterprise who sought to render a
desired service to society.
Holmes stated that history offered scant comfort to
those who thought that sublimated motives of good of others
would offer sufficient stimulus to mankind to lift itself
above the level of mere subsistence. The charges levied
against the system of individual enterprise and reward are
more against its maladjustments than against the basis of the
As we see it there is nothing sacred about any economic
system. If socialism would be a letter system, why let it
come. But in reflecting on the shortcomings of the system
now In vogue people overlook too easily the fact that it has
been a product of long evolution, that on the whole it has
done fairly well the job of serving to the material wants
of mankind, and that no matter how fine socialism may be
in theory where each shares nearly equally from the com
mon store, it just will not work out in practice. In seasons of
hard times the theorists urge a plunge into socialism and pro
fessors who are usually long on theory and short on reality
are often inclined to favor scrapping the old system to ex
periment with socialism. So it is refreshing to find cne in
tellectual who justifies the fundamental basis of the system
of individual enterprise not only on the basis of its historic
showing but on the basis of its social and ethical relation
ships. A Two-in-One Platform
DR. DANIEL A. POLING, who is retiring as president of
the Allied Forces for Prohibition, say3 that he sees no
reason why both the republican and democratic parties
should not adopt the same plank on prohibition. Since the
grjeat objective of both parties is to find some formula which
will hold both wet and dry votes it would not be surprising
if the prohibition planks are identical in meaning if not in
Since Dr. Poling has brought the.matter up why cannot
both parties unite on an entire platform with the exception
of the opening paragraphs which would be the conventional
"point with pride" (fingers crossed) by the republicans, and
"view with alarm" by the democrats.
Both parties could agree on a tariff policy. With the
Portland Journal leading a fight for a lumber tariff and an
Oklahoma democrat leading a fight for an oil tariff and a
Pennsylvania democrat fighting for a coal tariff, the demo
, crats seem to be now most ardent in support of the historic
protection policy of the republicans.
Neither party has any power policy (except to get and
hold power). Both parties have united on measures to end the
depression. Both parties split on sales tax, surtax, and gift
Tax. Both parties split on doles, bonuses and bond issues.
Newton D. Baker has suggested that the democratic
platform be brief, very brief, so a man might learn it. The
advice might hold for the republican platform; and in the
further interest of intelluctual economy the platforms
might be identical; except one being labeled, "I'm in and
want to stay" and the other "I'm out and want in".
John McGraw quits as manager o the New York Giants after
a shift of 30 years in the job. McGraw'a career covers the most bril
liant period in American aport, and he himself contributed vastly to
the brilliance of the great American pastime baseball. His teams
have been the most consistently successful in th. country, winning
ten national league pennants and three world aeries. For years he has
been the moat prominent figure in the game, except for individual
players whose prominence is usually of rather short duration. Mc
Graw retires with the goodwill of the great host of Americans who
love baseball and follow the big leagues though they rarely get to
see them in action.

We may wonder what the town will do with 343 high school
seniors who have been tamed loose with their diplomas. The town
needn't worry. These young people will be absorbed some way or
other. Many will go oa to college. Others will find Jobs. With no
memories of fancy wages in the past, these young chapg will take
what they can get, and that without complaining. They enter life
without illusions In this year 1932; and In future years they may
count the experience a blessing. Starting from scratch they are sure
to move forward.
