LaBINE Anti-Administration Congress Hangs Up Paradoxical Record With Unprecedented Spending (EDITOR'S NOTE--When opinions are expressed in these columns, they axe those o1' the news analyst and not necessarily of this newspaper.) Released by Western Newspaper Union. CONGRESS: 'Res lpse Loquitur' "It speaks for itself," said Frank- lin Roosevelt in Latin after the house refused on roll call to pass his $800,000,000 bill expanding FHA's lending power. To both house and senate he forwarded "my good wishes for a pleasant vacation." Then he bundled up some 350 last- minute bills and left for Hyde Park while his loyal friend from Florida, Sen. Claude Pepper, was holding up adjournment by denouncing the "un- righteous partnership (Democratic- G. O. P. coalition) of those who have been willing to scuttle the American government . . . and jeopardize the peace of the world because they hate Roosevelt and what Roosevelt Itands for." But when the first session of the ~eventy-sixth congress was safely I~OItIDA'S PEPPER a willing m scuttle.., jeopardize..." packed away, observers meditated on its record: A rebellious, anti- White House gang had nevertheless appropriated the record-shattering peacetime total of $13,344,077,162 (see chart), including a last-minute $119,000,000 farm loan fund for the sake of quick adjournment.

The record: White House Victories. Congress was not all bad to the President. The senate confirmed all but 10 of his 10,988 appointees (including New Dealish Supreme Court Justices Frankfurter and Douglas, equally New Dealish Commerce Secretary Hopkins and Attorney General Mur- phy). Passed were his unprecedent- ed peace-time defense program (in- tact except for Guam forti~flcation); modified governmental reorgamz~ a" tion (which will save about $30,000, 000 a year), and his 1940 relief pro- gram, laden with restrictions. Con- tinued were his gold content decal& ~PPROPRIA~ION RECORD Up in an ~nK.New Deal year. aflon power and his $2,000,000,000 currency stab21ization tim& White House Defeats. Vivid in retrospect, they include: (1) his $3,- ~00,000,000 spend-lend plan, emascu- lated by the senate, killed by the house; (2) his $800,000,000 housing expansion bill; (3) neutrality revi- sion, on which much of the nation agreed with him; (4) a 1939 relief deficiency appropriation of $50,000,- 000; (5) rejection the senate of two appointees torney for Nevada), and withdrawal of two more whose rejection was imminent (Wisconsin's Thomas Am- lie, ICC appointee, and Donald Wakefield Smith, NLRB appointee); (6) refusal to hike debt limit above $45,000,000,000 (but long-term bond ceiling was raised). Other legislative moves, some mi. nor New Deal victories, other minor defeats, but only one (Hatch bill) carrying important political implies. tions: , House approval (over White House ob. Jeetion) of $50.000 to probe NLRB. 4I. Abolition (with apparent White House ap. proval) of undistributed profits tax in "business appeasement" tax revision bill. Bill also provided reciprocal taxation o| federal and state employees. ~. Postponement to next term of badly need. ed railroad-aid legislation, one of the ses- slon's greatest failures. Only move in this direction: Approval of voluntary raft debt adjustment without necessitating bank. ruptcy. ~. Postponement of much-debated revision of (1) farm program, (2) Wagner labor re- lations act. and (3) wage-hour act. Defeat of Townsend $200-a-month pension bill and passage of far-reaching social sea eurity amendments which freeze old age an. nutty pay roll taxes at 1 per cent for next three years, extend coverage to L300,000 more people and Hberaltze benefit payments. ~. Passage of Hatch "clean politics" bill (received coldly by White House because it ellmlnates much of the administration ma. chine from 1940's campaign) which pro. scribes political activities of all except top- bracket federal Jobholders. ~: Refusal to revive Florida ship canal (a Whlte House proposal). Continuation (over White House obSeetlon) of Dies committee on un.Amencamsm, which was called a "forum of dLsgrtmUed politicians." POLITICS: Truths Open for public inspection this month are two great, pertinent po- litical truths: (1) That the right kind of publicity can turn a third rater into a first-rate presidential candi- date almost overnight; (2) that to- day as always, public sentiment is sufficiently pliable to make room for any new face that may pop up. The con- clusions: First, that p r e s idential campaigns are largely a matter of smart public relations work; sec- ond, that 1940's elec- tion is not in the bag for any man. PAUL MeNUTT Coins up? Cause of this excitement is Paul V. McNutt, who popped back from the Philippines two months ago, got his handsome picture in the papers, was called a "charming young man" by President Roosevelt, then ended up by getting himself named federal security administrator. From here he may develop into the President's crown prince. In June candidate McNutt rankecl fifth among Democratic hopefuls as tabulated by highly accurate GaHup polls. In order: Garner, 47 per cent; Farley, 16; Hull, 12; Hopkins, 5; McNutt, 3. Six weeks after his fed- eral appointment, Paul McNutt had lumped to second place. Jack Gar- ner, still well in the lead, suffered a mite. The standings: Garner, 48 3er cent; McNutt, 13; Hull, 12, Far- ley, 12; Hopkins, 3. Other political news: Ohio's Sen. Robert Alphonso Taft, bad trailer in G. O. P. Gallup polls, became the first to toss his hat in the ring. While finding his senatorial office "interesting," Candidate Taft mat-" nanimously agreed not to "run away from a ~arder job." RACES: One Way Out Since last March thousands of CzechoSlovakian Jews have fled to the U. S. on visitors' permits, their property confiscated, their only hope lying in refuge on some distant land. Sometimes even this hope is futile, Within two days the U. S. had this problem brought shockingly to mind twice: ~. In Chicago, 43-year-old Mrs. Adele Langer (wife of a Czech Jew whose $1,500,000 textile mills had been con- fiscated), took quarters in a Loop hotel with her two sons, six and four. Late that night she threw her sons from the thirteenth floor window, slashed her wrists and jumped. In New York, German Refugee Albert Aaron, whose wife died two weeks earlier from an overdose of sleeping tablets, hung himself from his apartment door. LOUISIANA: Hot Oil Heaped atop several score other indictments facing prominent Louis- tartans was a federal charge against former Gay. Richard Leche, whose feet had heretofore been kept clear of the muck surrounding state offi- cialdom.

As August was born, it indeed looked like a crisis in which Japan had be- come of great nuisance value to Rdolf Hitler and Benito Mussolini. What bothered Americans was that their own nation seemed being drawn into this chess game as a re- sult of justified U. S. retaliation against insults in the Far East. At Italy's Lake Coma was played the key move in this game. There met Toshio Shiratori, Japanese am- bassador to Rome, and Lieut. Gen. Matahiko Oshima, ambassador to Berlin.

With democracies' attention shifted away from Europe for the moment, the axis exerted pressure on Spain and the Balkan states, dragging them into line should Europe become em- broiled in war. While Washington tried desperate- ly to remain aloof, Prime Minister Chamberlain told the house of com- mons he might have to send a pow- er/u1 fleet to Asia. More interesting to Americans, however, was the pro- ~osal of Laborite John Morgan that British and American Asiatic fleets )e combined under a U. S. admiral to keep order in the Orient.
