Hoover's Farewell Address-
SOUND counsel, but no flourish of rhetoric, marked Pres.
i Hoover's valedictory given before the National Republi
: dan chib of New York at its annual Lincoln day dinner. His
address was reminiscent somewhat of his campaign speeches
in which he sought to educate the people to the underlying
causes of the depression and his efforts at solution. In his
"Konday night address Mr. Hoover spoke not as a candidate,
but as one who is departing from scenes of power. However
there was no regret voiced. Instead there was a note of
grimness in his address in which he made a plea for construc
tive effort to bring about economic rehabilitation.
Pres. Hoover proclaimed no "new deal", no shifty shuf
fle by which world prosperity may be restored. He did
reiterate those elementary principles which are now bbvious
to students of current problems. In essence Mr. Hoover
urged the restoration of gold standard among the nations of
the world so that commercial intercourse may be resumed on
some settled basis. To accomplish that he advocated inter
national cooperation for the . hastening of the adjustments
still required. Lowering of trade barriers and settlement
though not cancellation of war debts are essential to world
In conclusion he pointed out that the United States
stands at the fork of three roads. One path is that of inter
national cooperation which will remove trade barriers, re
store gold standard, encourage trade and revive prices. The
other is that of economic self-sufficiency by which this coun
try will virtually seek to live within itself; but a road which
would -require many drastic readjustments and costly sacri
fices. The third road is that of abandonment of the gold
standard and flagrant inflation "with the certainty that it
leads to complete destruction both at home and abroad." The
president's plea was that the country follow the first road.
Pres. Hoover's farewell address is a great contribution
to the thought of time. He leaves the heritage of "sound
money" yet of aggressive action to solve present problems.
His advice is constructive and not destructive. His recom
mendations are not novel by any means. Bernard Baruch,
famous democrat and financier, on Monday urged balancing
the budget and retention of sound currency as the basis of
restoration. There is a growing conviction that Mr. Roose
velt will base his program on substantially these lines.
t: In times of disaster false prophets and ignorant medi
cine men are sure to arise, offering potent panaceas with
guarantees of quick recovery. The woods are full of these
howling dervishes now who preach inflation, reckless bond
t issues and government extravagances. To follow them means
to invite financial chaos. The history of past depressions,
of 1873 and 1893, proves that the only wise course is to fight
through on the busis of sound money and conservative
Hoover's place in history is not yet clear. He goes out
of office discredited by the people and with few personal
friends. In time he may attain a place similar to Grover
Cleveland who in a previous time of trial stood fast for sound
and safe principles.
TTHY so much sabre-rattling on this side of the Pacific?
J V The United States has concentrated its full fleet on
this coast for a year, and announcement is made that the
Atlantic fleet is to remain in these waters in 1933 for "pur
pose of economy."
At present the fleet is engaged in wide manouvera in
I the Pacific ocean. Hawaii has already been "captured" by
the invading division, and now the "hostile" ships are steam
ing to break through the protecting cordon of vessels and
effect a landing on the Pacific coast. True, these manouvers
are part of the routine of a well-ordered navy which must
apply its principles to practice and must study all possibili-
. ties for thrusts at this continent. But the impression on Ja
pan Is bound to be bad. These far-flung manouvers in the
: Pacific will appear to be pointed at Japan; and the result
, will be to increase apprehension there, and invite counter-
efforts which are always the preliminary to clash of arms.
Another gesture: a great increase of appropriations to
put 88,000 young men into citizens military training camps.
I The ostensible purpose is to get the homeless young men off
- the hobo trail. Foreign countries however are sure to read
a different purpose, that of expansion of our trained forces.
A few weeks ago congress in a burst of economy cancelled all
appropriations for the training camps. Now under the
' guise of charity it doubles their size. ,
; The cold fact is that with- all our prating about love of
' peace and friendliness to disarmament we are aS" militaristic
in many respects as foreign countries.' Our history shows a
war every twenty years, approximately. If we are going to
put faith in our own treaties then we should be careful of
our military gestures.
It is not our business to save China for the Chinese. But
stupid blundering might precipitate such a war. We greatly
fear these naval manouvers and steps toward enlarging the
trained military forces will contribute to war nsvehosia both
in this country and in Japan.

Many years ago I ooncetred
the Idea of forming a gallery ot
God's good- men. I secured photo
