CHARLES P STEWART ASHINGTON May 6 Currency infla tion is destined be the big is sue between the two major par ties for a long time to come in the opinion of many politicians How they ar rive at this

policy inasmuch as it is the policy of the group in control of the G O P official organization If it were to reraaitj untried but simply argued about as in William Jennings Bryans day it might con tinue to be an issue indefinitely The present situation Is not like that Inflation is adopted It will have had its trial before the campaign of years 1936 perhaps before next congressional campaign If
