HOW WOULD THE PEOPLE
CURE THE DEPRESSION?
The United States is a democracy
and the people are supposed to run
it, through their chosen representa-
tives. But just how directly the in-
fluence of the people is felt in
Washington and the various state
cajfltais is open to debate.
When crises arise, the President
holds long and anxious consulta-
tions with his official advisers; Con-
gress engages in wordy debates; in-
dustrialists, statisticians, college
professors, and other experts har-
angue congressional committees
with their ideas for remedies.
In such times, one wonders what
the people think. Wihat, would the
man on the street do if he suddenly
were placed in power? What does
he think the President ought to do,
for instance, to cure the “recession?
Questions like these make doufrty

A paperhanger thought the cure
for the slump would be to get John

between the rival labor factions.
One student said he would raise

Whether any of these schemes

not the question. What the survey
shows is that nearly every citizen
has ideas, and very definite ones,
about what should be done.
Whether our democracy func-

ideas, how carefully they weed the
good ones from the bad, and how
conscientiously they strive to trans-

Pepper offered a minor amendment

And then Anatole met Madame

pen. Short stories, novels,
sketches, occasional verse. As the
years passed his philosophy deep-

to the revolutionary. The World

faiths deeply. He was too old to
