his seat about half way back on the repub lican aide and listen The house was debating whether it would accept the cost of produc tion plan as a part of the farm bill Perhaps it struck Johnson as a bit strange when Clarke of New York controlling the time for the republicans announced that he would yield just two minutes to him During the old days in the senate he could have had as much time as he desired His Time Counted But no man ever made more of those two minutes perhaps than he did In a voice that reverberated through every part of the chamber and which silenced the incessant noise so
