of the c o n g r e s sional dai ly story of what goes on in the legislative cham bers of the capi tal He b e li e v e s that the record should be made more readable He would make of it a publication showing from day to day a cross section of the coun try Hed put in comics and car toons He would have it illustrated by drawings and pictures The rules of the house are very strict in this respect Generally speaking illustrations of all sorts are barred One member did suc ceed at one time in getting a picture of a prize cow in it but it was more or Jess of an accident Always a Barrier Boylans luck in getting in little human interest stories and poems up until the present congress has been a bit precarious And it was because of Representative Underbill of Massachusetts Underfill was the unofficial guar dian of the record on the floor Since insertions of material must be by unanimous consent Underbill I object spelled doom for counlr less speeches poems and editorials and the Jike Wanted Poems in It was highly amusing at times to watch Boylan trying to elude the eyervratchful Underbill At one time Wisconsin Pickets Dump 500 Gallons of Milk CHICAGO HAS NO SHORTAGE WITH STRIKE OPENING Minnesota and Iowa to Obey Order Delaying Farm Holiday f abotit G ebrge Washin g ton Underbill objected much to the dlsgTist of Boyian A short time lat er he asked that he be permitted to address the house for five minutes Underbill again objected pointing out that Boylans purpose was to vead the poems This was too much for Boylan He demanded a parliamentary in quiry When asked to state its na ture he said he wanted to know if Underbill was psychic or juat a good mind reader A Watchman Gone Underbill is no longer in the house having retired last session And so far no one has displayed his zeal in guarding the record Cooperating with another mem ber the other day there appeared in the record an account of how the late Will Wood of Indiana for mer chairman of the appropriations committee daily for more than 20 years fed a flock of pigeons outside his office The story told of how the pigeons knew Wood so well they would sass him back in pigeon language and of how daily they look up in the faces of hoping to recognize him Its a good story but one can al most hear the snort Charlie Under bill would have given had be been in the house when request was made to print it in the record RACINE Wis May 13 Farm strike pickets today dumped 500 gallons of milk from a truck which had been escorted out of Ra cint county by Racine deputy sheriffs The dumping cocurred
