Gazette Times, Heppner,
By FRANKLYN WALTMAN,
Publicity Director, Republican
Just as day is certain to follow
night, so President Roosevelt can be
expected several weeks before an
election to deliver to the country his
usual message calling for cooperation
between business and government
and an end to name-calling. After
the election Mr. Roosevelt forgets
it. This event has become so much
a part of American campaigns in the
last six years that future writers on
political technique undoubtedly will
list it among the things which un
failingly should be done.
Consequently the only surprising
aspect of the President's delivery of
the message this year was the fact
that he did not choose to do so per
sonally but resurrected from the
grave the White House Spokesman
to serve as his ambassador. None
seems to know exactly why Mr
Roosevelt adopted this medium of
communication with the country this
Perehaps the humor of what Mr.
Roosevelt had to say was, this time,
even too much for him and he feared
he might not be able to keep a
straight face in urging that busi
ness come to peace with the gov
ernment and that labor and industry
link arms in sweet harmony.
F. D. R. Champion Name-Caller
Surely, Mr. Roosevelt must real'
ize that whatever shortcomings he
may have, he could qualify as the
champion name-caller and epithet
hurler among. American Presidents,
He has easily out-distanced Teddy
Roosevelt, who set the previous
record. The epithets which Mr.
Roosevelt has hurled at business
and industry will give a salty tinge
to our political histories for many
years to come.
Remember some of the gentle ref
erences which Mr. Roosevelt has ut
tered about business! Best known,
of course, is the "economic royalist"
phrase. But there are others. The
first inaugural address is spotted by
several which shine like mackerel
in the moonlight. For instance there
was the "unscrupulous money
changers" and then there was the
phrase that the economic structure
broken down because "the rulers of
the exchange of mankind's goods
have failed, through their own stub
bornness and their own incompe
tency.'' Then in a message to Con
gress was the boast that "we have
earned the hatred of entrenched
greed." In the same message "politi
cal puppets of an economic autoc
racy" appeared. Less severe was the
phrase at Atlanta: "Gentlemen in
well - warmed and well - stocked
There are a number, of others
which might be recalled. But these
raised by tax on the Morrow

will suffice to show that Mr. Roose
velt does not need to give quarter
when it comes to calling names. The
thing which gives him complete su
premacy in this field is the fact that
some of his aides are almost as good
as he is.
Ickes' Tongue Sharp
Early in the New Deal it was
thought General Hugh S. Johnson
had a rapier tongue. But Secretary
Harold L. Ickes makes the former
army officer's words sound like pat
ter at a tea party. For example, there
was this one: "big business should
wash in strong disinfectants." An
other Ickes phrase which ranks high
among epithets reads: "the Bour
bons of the sixty families who have
brought the rest of the businessmen
of the United States under the terror
of their domination." The word
"plutocracy," of course, is Secretary
Ickes' pet name for business and in
Solicitor-General Robert H. Jack
son added "aristocratic anarchy" to
the New Deal list of "epithets. He
also is the author of "the economic
oligarchy of autocratic, self-constituted
and self-perpetuating groups"
as a description of business. There
were others in that speech last De
cember when Mr. Jackson in one
night talked himself out of a chance
to be governor of New York.
And after all that, Mr. Roosevelt
asks business to stop calling names
and rattling sabers! No wonder he
conveyed the message through the
White House Spokesman.
Mr, Roosevelt may now talk about
"cooperation' between business and
government,' but if he runs true to
form he will give business another
tongue-lashing a few weeks after the
election is over. As for cooperation.
is it not a two-way proposition?
Business and industry have tried
again and again to cooperate with
the Roosevelt Administration but
their efforts seldom have been recip
rocated. The impasse between the White
House and the public utilities is a
case in point. Men within that in
dustry have on various occasions
undertaken to come to an under
standing with the White House
have gone far in the concessions they
are willing to make. But the White
House has yet to meet them half
way. On occasion Mr. Roosevelt has
promised cooperation and a cessa
tion of Administration harassment
of business, as he did in the famous
"breathing spell" letter to Roy How
ard. But the promises never mater
Perhaps the reason is that the
Roosevelt Administration must have
a whipping boy to divert attention
from its incompetence and failures.
