Freshmen By HERBERT PLUMMJ3R WASHINGTON May 15 That veteran of 25 years as a mem ber of the house of representatives James W Collier of Mississippi now a member of the tariff com mission smiles a bit when he hears that the freshmen democrats of the present house are kicking because they are not given good commit tee assignments and a more pre ferred status on the hill Champ Clark one time speaker of the house used to tell the new comers that congressmen were made not one had to learn to be a representative just as a man must learn to be a black smith or a carpenter Example of System Collier agress His own experience is an excellent example of the sys tem on capital hill The Mississippian had risen to the heights in the house before a queer twist in the politics of his state deprived him of his seat last year He had become chairman of the most powerful committee in the house that of ways and means be fore going out Yet when he visited the capitol for the first time back in 1909 as a member of congress a doorkeeper refused to let him in because he didnt know him Ul Up Up Colliers climb to the pinnacle of house committee assignments is an Interesting story He became a member of congress in the days when Uncle Joe Cannon ruled the house as a czar Uncle Joe had the sole power of committee assign ments for both democrats and re publicans Young and ambitious committed as he says to many reforms prom ised in his preelection speeches Collier wanted a place on just two and rivers and harbors jncle him a berth on f was perhapS tie least committee in the house It was rarely if ever called in ses sion and has since been abolished But he took it sure that Uncle Joe would remember him with a better assignment later on Uncle Joe Remembers Uncle Joe did remember him later on Oat the next session he was promoted to the comittee on in dustrial arts and expositions This says Collier was a step above the first by virtue of the fact that its sonorous and highsounding title was absolutely second to none It too was seldom called in ses sion and has since been abolished I was downhearted But he kept plugging A fortunate incident gave him opportunity to make a name for himself as a mem ber of industrial arts and exposi tions He attracted attention Then came a place on ways and means that led him finally to the chairmanship of that powerful com mittee and subsequently played an important part in landing him on the tariff commission when the vi cissitudes of politics left him with out a job Policeman Knocks Out Gunman When Pistol Jams Three Times PHILADELPHIA May 15 Sunday
