There are all sorts of stories am to what It will cost to run the government; but the truth will not be known until tha budget is com- pleted, which will be a few days, pos- sibly a few hours before congre~ meets. The current budget Is a trifle over seven billion, four hundred mil- lion ; and the President seeks to slash that so he can keep his promise that we have gone over the spending peak and are on our way to the safe harbor of a balanced government income and outgo. If the Supreme court of the United States declares that the AAA process- Ing taxes are unconstitutional, then congress will have to locate a way to raise the money for the AAA checks to contract-farmerS, a matter of half a billion dollars ; and if congreme doesn't raise it, then it means that much more borrowed money until such time as the present AAA contracts and Size present farm policy continue. If this session of congress passes the immediate payment of the bonu~ law, it means finding a Couple of bil- lions of dollars more. My Impressions are the bonus will be enacted this coming session; over the ,President's veto. That would remove the matter from politics, but It would smash the budget. Roosevelt has taken the po- sition that If congress pays the bonus, congress must "provide the cash. The relief problem is not settled: and it relates closely to the amount of borrowed money, because the expanded national debt Is largely due to the government's relief policy. Roosevelt has given me the Impression that If the states and cities can't take care of their end of the burden, he will see to it that the national government will carry the burden--to some ex- tent. The tapering off process has be- gun; and the federal relief officials are hard-boiled about it; they are not coddling anybody, but the mayors of the largest cities told the government they can't carry the load. tratlon's AAA and work relief and other remedial programs. There Is a definite movement for the ownership of all utilities, while the ad- ministration is content with regulation under SEC and the "yardstick" experi- ment of TVA. The government is merely showing what can be done in the way of cheap power when "wa- tered stock" is dried out; and is ton- tent to let private ownership furnish power at proper rates. But If the con- sorvatlves smash the present program there will be a tremendous revolution against the evils of the old power trust which is a heavy factor against Roose- velt. There are m~lltant, radical pro- grams such as those of Governor Olson of Minnesota. and La Foliette of Wis- consin. There is, for Instance, the action of Milwaukee's socialist g~ov- ernment which authorizes with the mayor to close any factory which will not bargain collectively with the rep- resentatives of a majority of the work- erL This is much more radical than anything in the Wagner labor act against which Industry is growling. Theme radical movements indicate the ~ocial unrest; there is no evidence that a majority of Americans are rad- ically Inclined, but there seems to be danger that they will be made so if the governmen~ Is placed in the hands of a Fascist body of big business leaders whose sole thought is for prof- its and dividends. The very conservative groups are giving the Republican party something to think about, because the G. O. P. is being openly courted by these man- ufacturers and financiers; and yet the Republican party from the Alleghanies westward to the Pacific realizes it can- not become the tool of the eastern sea- board and the heavy capitalist type of leader. In fact, one prominent Northwest Republican senator made the remark to a friend of mine a few days ago "that this administration would some day be looked upon as very conservative." Behind this hint Is the explanation that many westsrn Republicans believe that there would be a popular uprising against an ad- ministration elected for business only. U. S. BONDS SNAPPED UP Bankers who recently advised their colleagues to boycott the UnLted States government and invest in no more government bonds must have had a shock when the treasury offered about a billion dollars' worth of bonds the other day and the public sub- scribed to the offer five times over. This shows, of course, that the gov- ernment's credit is still splendid; it also shows that the rank and file of bankers pald no attention to the Amer- ican Bankers' association officials who suggested the boycott. As an eastern editor puts it: "The bankers may be dumb, but not that dumb."

I If Mark Twain had lived a few years longer he would have had to retract his assertion Man and that everybody corn- *he Weather plains a bo u t the weather, but nobody ever does anything about it. Something will be done about It very shortly. The disastrous drouths in the South- west have led scientific men to search for ways and means of doing it. The Job will take a long time, but It will vastly more than repay all the work and all the money that will be consumed in the effort. The plan is to stretch a forest like a belt across the desert and prairie part of the United States-.-a forest that will supply shade and make it possible to prevent the terrific damage done by dry spells in that section of the country. Costly In time and money as this project will be, It will more than pay for Itself after the trees have t good strong growth. The new forest will be a hundred miles wide, and extend from the Ca- nadian line to Mexico. For years the treeless stretcnes from Montana to New Mexico have been the breeding places of heat, arid gales, and destructive sand storms. The parched soil. loosened by the heat is raised nt the bidding of the wind and swept on and on like the sands of Sahara. If yon have gone through such a storm you know what It is like. If you haven't, tt would be difficult to convince you of its fury. But when a baffler of well.grown trees holds the gales In check and "ties" the soil to mother earth, the entire character of the weather will be changed and the farmer will have no more fear of the loss of his crops. $ @ * This vast enterprise cannot be car- ried out In mere handful of years. The most rapidly growing tree--a cottonwood or a poplar---requires years to grow to a useful size. It must be defended from bugs and other parasites. Many trees will die and replacements will be necessary. But when this bulwm'k of living green is at last ready for Its collosal Job there will be a new climate in the states wblch border on It, and states qulte remote from the great divide will bc affected favorably by It. I hope that these trees will be planted ]orest fashion, and not placed in regular monotonous tiers as they are in Germany and France and other countries in Eu. rope. And ! hope It will be possible to plant those which wll; supply wood In their old age. and thus in their de- clining years help to compensate for their' cost.

Three Nations Control Out- put of Industried Lifeblood, Discussion of oll embargoes In eennectlon with the Italo-Ethtopian war raises the question: "Where does the world get its oil?" Petro- leum deposits have been found in every continent except Antarctica, but well-defined pools are wldeTy scattered. Actually, a very few na- tions control the supply of this life- blood of modern industry. "Three countries produce about 81 per cent of the world's petroleum output," says the National Geograph- Ic society. "These are the United States. Soviet Russia and Venezuela. If all three should cut off their oil supplies, many steamships, trucks, automobiles, armored tanks, air- planes and railroads all over the world would be stopped, as well as industries depending on oil for fuel or lubrication. Great Britain. through her control of distribution of oil pro- duced in her dominions and colonies. and in many other countries, also Is a powerful factor in the world's oil ~ituation.

"Almost 99 per cent of the world's oil comes from only twelve coun- tries. Italy Is but one of the many nations which would have to com- bine their petroleum resources to make up the other 1 per cent. "While the three trading nations are making production history by their thundering progress along the oll trail, four others follow them In s group, although many l~ps behind --Rumania. lran (Persial.

Oil Also Found Under Water. "The distribution of petroleum seems to show a slight preference for the western hemisphere and for the northern side of the equator. Nevertheless. It is found tn such extremes as Iraq, where Iron-muscled Kurds work In July heat at 128 de- grees tn the shade, and north of Point Barrow in Alaska, where froz- en clods of oil-soaked earth are burned as a substitute for coal. "Water. as well as earth, may fie above petroleum. Venezuela's Lake Maracalbo, black with oil, Is studded wlth derricks which workmen reach by bridges of narrow planks from the shore, and Is supervised from a floating camp on a barge. The Sum. merland field of Santa Barnara coun- ty, California, extends beyond the shoreline of the Pacific. so that der- ricks wade Into the ocean to draw up ell from several hundred feet below sea level. ~The United States leads the world In ell productlon. Recently a dia- mond Jubilee marked the Industry's seventy-fifth anniversary since Col. Edwln Drake sank the country's first oil w(~l 70 feet into the rich Appa lachian field at Titusvllle, Pa.

"In 1901 the rlch Texas oll fields were brought in. starting a branch of the industry which In 1934 pro. duced $36,000,000 worth of oil more than the combined production of the two next richest areas, Oklahoma and California.

Archbishop Adalberon, when presiding nearly a thousand years ago at an assemblage for the choice of a king for Lower Lorraine, In what ls now France, warned his hearers of these obstacles to clear thinking by saying: "Let ns act In sucb sort that hatred stifle not reason, and aft'action dis- tort not truth."
