The Roosevelt Cabinet
THE Roosevelt cabinet is just moderately strong. In some
respects it is an odd assortment. Roosevelt is a pretty
good man to get team-work however. He says "Fine, Fine"
to all comers, and thus sends them away happy no matter
what he finally does. He will not be like Wilson who made
up his own mind and quarreled with those who disagreed
m ith him. Roosevelt's policies will be the composite of the
views of his cabinet advisers rather than the product of his
, own cerebration.
On the whole the cabinet is comjwsed of lesser states
men. Most of the old party names have been passed over.
This does not brand the selections as mediocre necessarily.
It averages quite as well as the Hoover cabinet in political
stature. The members must prove themselves now and show
if they have capacity to rise to the occasion which their
appointments open up.
Who are the cabinet members?
Cordell Hull, secretary of state, is one of the few simon
pure democrats left in the country. He is from Tennessee,
so naturally would be a "fundamentalist" in politics, low
tariff and all. Hull has brains however; sticks to his
beliefs tenaciously. He can supply the ideas and Roosevelt
can be the front for them. He is opposed to ruinous economic
William H. Woodin resembles Charles G. Dawes in being
a big business man and a composer of music. He is said to
be a collector of coins, so naturally that would put him
in the treasury. Woodin is high enough placed that he will
have the respect of New York banker? and can talk their
language. His business is making railroad equipment, en
gines, cars, etc., which being what it is, no wonder he will
take a turn at politics.

One of the best appointments is that of Frances Perkins
(Mrs. Paul C. Wilson) as secretary of labor. She will be the
first woman to hold a place in the cabinet. She has earned
it, as commissioner of labor in New York state. This depart

fare of labor rather than just a political jockey ground to
handle the labor vote.
