Chicken in the Pot
DEMOCRATS have poked a lot of fun at Pres. Hoover be
cause of his campaign utterances of four years ago when
he referred to the prevailing prosperity as'a "chicken in ev-
ery pot" and "two cars in the garage". That was the condi
tion which then gave promise of continuance. It did seem
that poverty was well on the way to abolishment. The demo
crats at that time were not any more gifted in prophecy than
tbe republicans for none of them foresaw the business crash.
, , We wonder however if Roosevelt, should he be elected,
will not have a harder time making good his assurances to
the workless. In a letter to a New Yorker named Shearon,
Roosevelt pledged his support to a program of public works
"to urovide employment for all surplus iabor at all times".
Alas, how that declaration
enters the white house. That is an inclusive assurance, "all
surplus labor at all times"; and in his calmer moments Roose
velt must realize that he can't make good. As Pres. Hoover
says, the problem is to get men back at work in normal oc
cupations ; public works can care for only a limited portion of
the unemployed.
It is easy enough to make promises of jobs and prosper
ity. Ramsay MacDonald headed the labor government which
was designed to bring comfort
men of England. One of his first
strike. There have been bad strikes in the coal fields and tex
tile centers while he has been premier.. Even now, though it
' K U a conservative rather than a labor government that Mac
Donald heads, London is having its hunger marches and riots.
In other words the great economic forces in England were
bei'ond his power to control.
Montague Norman, governor of the Bank of England,
v- Tiolding the most responsible position in finance of any per
son in the world, recently spoke
one of the rare ones in which
"The difficulties are bo vast, so unlimited, that I approach
. the whole subject not only in ignorance but in humility. It U
too great for me."
We incline to this opinion that Franklin Roosevelt would
quickly find the problems of the depression too great for him,
and that like Ramsay MacDonald his hopes which he extend
ed in promises, will prove quite impossible of realization.
Why desert Herbert Hoover who is acquainted with the
problems of the time, who is face to face with reality for one I
