to the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with Owl and the
Word was God.—Jn. 1:1. The Greeks called Wisdom the Word. God then
Is incarnate Wisdom. Some imagine this world was started by a silly
accident, and sustained by perpetual motion. Tills view is supported by
no evidence. It was created by wisdom and sustained by wisdom. It is
RECENTLY Walter Reuther, president of the CIO, charged
a that the Eisenhower administration is practicing a
typical Republican trickle-down philosophy.
By this he meant “piling enough food on the banquet
tables of the wealthy so that some of the crumbs would
trickle down to the poor."
We will not attempt to argue whether this description
was ever before applicable to economic attitudes in tins
country. But we would like to suggest that it certainly does
not fit the picture today. .
There may be some businessmen around who regard int
citizen of modest or slender means as someone to combat
—whether or not this citizen is part of the organized labor
RUT the evidence is extensive that the overwhelming ma-
" jority of business leaders in 1953 have a broad social
consciousness. They understand there can be no lasting
well-being for the United States that is not founded oil the
well-being of the ordinary American citizen.
Those who blithely state otherwise are generally un-
informed of the state of mind prevailing in the business
community. There is no wide feeling that people in the
lower income brackets deserve only the crumbs.
There is, however, u definite businessmen’s conviction as
to the way the average American can be best helped eco-
nomically. Most leaders believe that the American “secret,
if it be that, is productivity—the ability to produce more
and more goods with the same or less expenditure of human
and mechanical energy.
They believe that the American economy should be so
ordered and managed as to encourage the constant expansion
of industrial facilities and the steady application of technical
improvements. Thus, they reason, will productivity advance.
Thus, too, will better goods, more goods be made available
to consumers at the same or lower prices.
rpHAT is the fundamental theory upon which our economic
1 society is based. And the record of our economic life,
especially in the past 50 years, indicates that it has usually
worked remarkably well. Living standards have increased
mightily. They are far higher than those in any socialist
land you care to name.
To describe this process, this technique by which our
resources are developed and spread across all economic levels,
as a “trickle-down” system is to descend into absurdity. It
has been more of a flood than a trickle.
Reuther is guilty of pat and outmoded thinking. He is
spouting the kind of stuff labor leaders voiced two or three
decades ago. He is striking an emotional, political attitude,
not expressing a sound view rooted in the economic facts. In
consequence he is unlikely to command very serious attention.

THE STORY: Younn* Dr. Tuck
Bentley returns home for the first
time In many years to find his
Invalid father married to a girl
younger than Tuck himself .
Frankie, the stepmother, had been
his father’s nurse. Tuck senses
complications In the fact that his
father’s young partner. Dr. Bradley
MiteheU. is in love with Frankie. He
also learns that the mother of an
old friend, Virginia (Gtnty) Ma-
comber, Is seriously III and only an
operation can save her.

A asked, when we were out-
side the gate.
"She says," Glnty caught at my
elbow reminding me that I had
taken a military pace, "that she
won’t be haggled on by ’some young,
bumptious amateur.’ Those arc her
words, Tuck, not mine. She says

"What about your house?"
“It’s mortgaged. My father
mortgaged it before he failed. He’d
been speculating, and there was just
nothing left, Tuck—just nothing!
And nothing can be pretty awful
when you have to face It alone
and all unprepared. I could work
for years nnd pay back, but there’s
nothing to begin on, no collateral—
not even good credit. Yet, It’s
We came to the shore road
where green benches were put out
for tourists, and I said, "Sit down,
Ointy." I pulled the package of
crarkerjack from my pocket and
laid It in her lap. For old times,"
She gave the sudden little squeal
of a laugh that was the old Glnty.
"Tuck, you idiot! I haven’t seen any
in ages! You remembered. I missed
you horribly, for years, did you
know that? It's not so lonely being
a scapegrace If you have a wicked
companion, so alter you left I had
to abandon all my wayward ways.
It's been fearfully stuffy, too. I'm
going to dump this out and see
what the prize Is. I can’t wait.

from touching the little metal toy.

childish. Tuck. At least don’t talk
about It. A neurosis like that can
only be cured by beihg Ignored."

TjUT Ointy said, "Things like
D that last, don’t they? We can't
do anything about them. I have
one. too. House plants! Mother
loves them and just the smell of
something green growing Inside a
warm room makes me sick."
“Yes." I said. "No more wild
blue yonger for me anymore.”
She said, soberly, “I may as
well tell you, Tuck. Frankie doesn't
like me. Has she mentioned it?
"She hasn't talked to me about
any one. I had an Idea (he never
did that sort of thing. Why doesn’t
she like you?"
"Because your mother got fond
of me, after you went away. She
tried to teach me to paint, though
I wins not much good at it. All I
can do now Is silly stuff few.my
children, ducks and ragdoll laces
nnd things like that, but I think
Frankie got Jealous. She hid it
in that odd, aloof way she has,
but whenever we went out to
sketch Frankie would eventually
show up with a lunch or a folding
chair for your mother or a message
or something. She clung to itts.
Bentley like a limpet, whateqp a
limpet is—anyway, something'that
sticks. I was really sorry for
Frankie. It seemed to me her
attitude was so morbid. She made
your mother an Invalid long before
she was really 111."
"My mother was really ill for
years before she would admit it,
Glnty," I said. "Frankie was good
to ner. I owe ner a lot lor doing
for mother what I was too self-
centered to do."
* * *
"She told you that, I suppose?
Personally, I don’t believe Dr.
Bentley had any such idea. I think
Frankie thought your mother was
going to leave her all her money.
The will must have been a shock
to Frankie, and we all thought the
old doctor married her to pacify
her. It was too bod, of course.
People sort of lost confidence in
him after that. It killed Mrs.
Pullen, your father's office nurse.
She went to pieces and your father
finally had to have her committed
to some mental place. She died
there last spring."
“Probably Mrs. Pullen had Ideas
About marrying Dad herself" I
said, feeling nasty and not caring
too much how the words sounded
"I wish you hadn't suid this, Glnty
—any of It. What you’ve told me
sounds like the malicious gossip of
a small town and I’d rather not

it xj AS she got you charmed, too,
H Tuck?" she asked, a trifle
acidly I thought. "You must see
how it was. Frankie was digging
herself In. She married your father
before your mother had been dead
three months. She’ll get what he
has, of course. It sounds odd for
you to be defending her."
"She won’t get anything when
my father goes, unless I choose to
give it to her." I was a little angry.
I hadn't considered an angle like
this. "She signed away every claim.
My father wanted to adopt her but
she wouldn't agree because he (aid
it would be unfair to me."
OEVEN a. m. daylight but not
® full sun-up. Streaks of gold
penetrating the blue-gray of
dawn. Chill wind blowing little
whispers of leave* on the streets.
No evidence of folks In our
neighborhood being conscious of
the arrival of another day. Often
wonder about the altitude of
Individuals toward another day.
Is It greeted as if It were the last
day of one's life or Is It met as
one more day of life's sentence.
Suppose the age of the viewer
has much to do with the per-
ception of the value of another
day. Like having more money
than one can spend In his life-
time. A thousand here and there
doesn’t count for much, but If in
less lush circumstances, a
thousand represents many of the
things one longs for but cannot
have. Days or money the pleasure
of either is what one does with It.
VfAIN street Desolate. Only
1*1 evidence of another day Is
a small number of cars In front
of tlhe restaurants. Wonder where
the trash comes from that ac-
cumulates In doorways and along
curbs during the night. Business
houses sound asleep. Window-
eyes closed against the en-
There Is light and life In the
home where T am going to attend
the sick. Medication to be given
at 7 a. m. every day. The greeting
is cheerful and another day is
well on Its way In this house.
CJEVEN fifteen: The sun Is over
O the horizon and casting long
shafts of light through the trees.
The leaves are thinning and soon
the picture will be changed.
Glimpses of houses through the
foliage, green grass, trees In full
leal as if painted with a brush
will soon look as if drawn with
a pen. No protecting shadows Just
stark outlines. More cars In front
of restaurant*. Here and there
a curtain raised on the east side
of the street but number one boy
lowering the awnings on the west
side to keep old sol off the
merchandise. Lights In west side
kitchens and morning papers still
on porches and lawns. Dogs
making early peregrinations
down alleys. Cats stretching and
humping their backs walking a
little stiffly. Rearranging their
Within minutes the whole town
will be awake as If by unanimous
agreement. Bang! The 7:30 news-
cast and we’re of! to a new day.

It/’ASHINGTON — (NEA) — For-
*f mer Judge Stanley N. Barnes of
California has been most quiet and
retiring In the five months he has
been assistant attorney general In
charge of the Antitrust division.
But In a speech before the Cali-
fornia Bar Association, which did
not get the national attention it
deserved, Barnes let go a block-
buster. It was aimed at delays before
U. S. courts, the needless waste of
time before hearing officers of the
federal government's sprawling net-
work of 56 administrative agencies,
and lawyers in general.
The general criticism Is the fre-
quently heard plea of the average
little guy embroiled in a lawsuit:
Why can’t I get up there and say
It In my own words?”
In the time he has been In Wash-
ington, Barnes declared, he has
come to these conclusions:
There exists &nong the bench
and bar a widespread dissatisfaction
with existing legal processes, but
this feeling is the delayed express-
ion of the same conclusion reached
earlier by the average client.
RARNES charged both the Judges
O and the lawyers with failure to
correct this situation. For years, he
said, the obvious answer to con-
gested court calendars has been.
“Get more Judges.” This Is not
enough, he declared.
In California, he said, the average
interval between the time a case Is
at Issue and the time of trial is from
four months to a year. In eight
states the lag Is even longer—Con-
necticut, Massachusetts, Minnesota,
Missouri, Ohio, Pennsylvania. Texas.
Wisconsin. The national average is
Just under a year for jury cases,
and under six months for nonjury
One remedy proposed to relieve
the log Jam has been to take per-
sonal Injury cases out of the courts
and put them before an adminis-
trative agency. This prompted him
to take a look at the existing fed-
eral administrative agencies.
Three such agencies were created
by the first Congress in 1789. Before
the Civil War there were 11. Of the
56 today, the five largest In the
fiscal year 1961 held over 5000 ad-
ministrative hearings. This is about
half the number of civil and crimi-
nal federal court cases in the same
RUT there were 215 federal dis-
15 trlct judges that year, while
there were 273 federal hearing of-
ficers for the administrative agen-
cies. In some administrative hear-
ings, Barnes said, "the records are
Infinitely longer than they would
have been In court proceedings, and
