They are murmuring about it even now Of course at the present with em ergency conditions still existing they are not doing much more tlin murmur i Will Be Different But it will be different when the republicans attempt to make their first stab at a comeback in the con gressicnal elections of next year And the democrats know it Those Washington political observers who long ago formed a healthy admira tion of Mr Roosevelt as a politi cian are pointing to a paragraph in his second report to the country recently as an illustration of what ne expects The only thing that has been happening said the president has been for congress to designate he president as the agency to carry out certain of the purposes of congress This was constitutional and in keeping with the past Amer ican tradition corigresir to tie republicans will look for their campaign thunder The discretionary or permissive au thority conferred on the president by congress is impressive And be fore the special session is over these powers will be increased Theres the emergency banking act for example Congress clearly assigned authority to the president in this bill that it usually keepa for itself The farm relief bill
