TUESDAY MARCH 11 1930 UNITED PRESS AND INTERNATIONAL NEWS SUPPLEMENTAL SEKV1UB NO 131 Row Over Lame Ducks Senators Sit Calmly as Argument Goes On PASS BY Ey CHARLES f STEWART ASH1NGTON March Lame duck senators may be just as undesir able as of progressive poli tical ideas con tend A tolerably good case can be made out against them anyway After a new lawmaker has been elected in November it cer tanly seems like a long time for him to wait while the one he is to supplant hangs on to his seat until the en suing a whole three month session oE congress Perhaps it was all right in the old days when the trip to Washington had to be made by stage coach but it is perfectly ridiculous now when it can be made by airplane Thepeople are entitled to be rep resented by the men of their most uptodate choice as soon as the latter can get here And of course the same sort of a case can be made out relative to the members of the low house of con gress as well as the senators Lame duckism merely is not quite so no ticeable among the representatives becausethere are so many of them that the cripples are lost in the crowd In the senate they are con spicuous A Lb of which is not a new argu ment The only point in repeat ing it is to wonder why such a row is made about the presence of lameduck senators whereas no row whatever is raisedabout the prolonged presence of senators who occupytheir seats

situation with refer ence to the informal demand of Aristide Briand foreign minister for a pact guaranteeing French se curity in return for a slash in the 724000 ton navy figure was ob scure TheBritish hope that eventu ally the demand may be slashed to a total of about 550000 tons Importance of such a slash can best be visualized when it is con sidered that Italy demands parity with France that Great Britain de mands corresponding greater pow er than France and that the Anglo American figures agreed upon in the Hoover MacDonald Rapidan conferences will have to be greatly increased unless the French come down In most conference circles con siderable gloom existed with re spect to the situation but some of the American delegation were not so pessimistic believing that
