as Kingfish Is Figured Out He Changes Style By HERBERT FLTJMMER WASHINGTON June 14 There seems to be no easy way of figuring out Huey Long of Louisi he will do or say next For several months almost since the start of the special session there has been com ment on how Huey had changed He had shown little of that blustery temp e r a m e n t and caustic speech which had led some to term him the bad boy of the senate Why youre HUEY P LON6 U S RECEIVES BRITISH PAYMENT Lehigh Cement Plant to Be Monday safe to stroll out of the press gal lery for a smoke when Hueys talk ing now remarked one of the mem bers of the press gallery recently Huey Culms Down And you were Huey even per mitted the Glass banking bill his pet target to go through the senate without much protest There was talk that he had agreed not to op pose it after an amendment provid ing for insurance of bank deposits had been included In the bill Whether this is true or not he did keep comparatively quiet and the measure went through the sen ate quickly There were all sorts of explana tions offered for the change in HueySome suggested that he had found he could be more effective in his new role s Just Like Before But everybody apparently was wrong For juat when they thought a new Huey had come into being out sprang the old Huey with as much fire and thunder as he had shown before The administrations industrial re covery set him bffr but before he had put many of bis cards on the table The wom an who made lard at hog killing time In her backyard the man in the rural sections who shouldered hisax and went Intothe woods to hew crossties for railroads would be put out of business under the terms of the bill he shouted He didnt care what others might do but as for himself he intended to take careV of the women at the wash who he said had given him whatever political standing he had Goes After Joe He went after Joe Robinson the democratic again andre newed that old feud He threatened to go into Arkansas at next elec tion time when Robinson comes up for reelection apparently in an effort to get Robinsons political scalp The whole thing was typical of kingfish going strong When he had finished Robinson waded into him Not since the time the democratic leader took Tom Heflin of Alabama over the hurdles for his attacks on the Catholic church in the senate has Robinson dealt so severely with one of his democratic brethren But the kingfish cameup from the word lashing he received from Robinson with the resiliency of a rubber ball LongIsland Citizens Propose 49th State NEW YORK June 14
