Behind the Scenes
By RODNEY DUTCHER
NEA Service Staff Correspondent
WASHINGTON — Harry Hopkins
has not decided to resign as boss of
WPA, despite various reports.
His only present plans are to stay-
in Washington and light against the
campaign for liquidation of his huge
work-relief organization. Part of
that campaign, according to the ad-
ministrator’s friends, calls for li-
quidation of Hopkins himself, which
may explain inspired reports that he
had accepted a big job with a Chi-
cago mall order house.
General confusion following J“r?e
cuts in WPA rolls and subsequent
retreat from the reduction program
call for a resurvey of the WPA sit-
uation in Washington. Hopkins and
Assistant Administrator Aubrey Wil-
liams have taken the rap for both
those steps and the confusion as
well, but here’s what has happened:
Secretary of the Treasury Henry
Morgenthau and Budget Director
Daniel Bell sold Roosevelt on the
idea that industrial recovery war-
ranted a gradual decrease in relief
expenses. They convinced Hopkins
that they hadn’t enough money for
WPA to last even to Jan. 20 if the
payroll wasn’t cut,
Rotsevelt confided he’d like to
have WPA casts cut to between a
billion and a billion and a half for
the next fiscal year — as against a
WPA estimate of two billions — and
suggested WPA expenditures might
gradually be brought down to $100,-
000.000 a month.
• • ’
Hopkins, who has never known
for more than a month ahead how
much money he would have, gave
in. He knew he could hardly get a
deficiency appropriation from Con-
gress before Jan. 20.
Orders went out which meant
dropping 150,000 from WPA’s ad-
ministrative, non-relief, and relief
personnel, as well as 250,000 who all
Along had been slated for transfer
to the Resettlement Administration
(which will pay them less money,
in dole form).
Expenses were to be cut from
$168,000,000 in November to $152,-
000,000 in December.
At the same time Hopkins girded
himself for a bitter-end fight with
Morgenthau, Bell, Chamber of
Qommerce and Agalnst-Roosevelt-
Before-Electlon elements and a re-
ported ’’Liberty League Lobby” over
proposals to gradually strangle WPA

THE curious wenir, which is found in the Nile and other tropical
rivers P* '*lr*ca, is a hang-over from a family of fish that lived
m,jjions of years ago. The young bichir breathes like a tadpole, by
means of large external gills, projecting backwards on each side of
IIow many lives were lost in the eruption of Mf. Pelee
and toss the able-bodied unemploy-
ed back to local politicians.
But soon LaGuardia of New York
and other members of the D. S. Con-
ference of Mayors were radioing the
president, then in southern waters,
that if WPA workers were to be
dismissed on the theory that pri-
vate industry would absorb them, it
would be much better if someone
would point out the Jobs they were
WPA workers staged demonstra-
tions. Pro-New Deal and anti-New
Deal newspapers cast scorn at an
administration which would keep
workers indiscriminately as soon as
the election was won.
Radiograms crackled back from
the cruiser Indianapolis to Morgen-
thau, Bell and Hopkins. Suddenly,
by what legerdemain is not yet
known, Morgenthau and Bell found
there really was enough money to
take WPA through January at the
Hopkins called a special press con-
ference to declare over and over that
“No one in need will be dropped ”
Even though it tended to make
WPA look foolish in the light of
conflicting official statements based
on the previous policy, Hopkins loy-
WPA Intact to help it win an elec- ] ally covered up for Roosevelt and
tion and then start firing WPA | the Treasury-Budget Bureau crowd.
