knot over payment to vet erans that they were able to real ilze just what a pace President Roosevelt put them through in the special session It was appar ent to most Washington observers shortly after the special session was convened that the president in tended using the house of represen tatives as the dynamo to furnish the power for pushing through his emergency legislative program Thesetup ill the house was ideal for his plans The democratic ma jority was overwhelming The rules of the body were strict and once invoked capable of being applied ruthlessly Trouble in Senate Not so with the senate There de liberation on legislation is a cher ished prerogative Every president finds that out sooner or later Roosevelt Itnew it In advance So the presidential guns were trained on the house

five days until March 21 before sending up a message rec ommending the creation of the civil ion conservation the legisla tion that put the unemployed into the national forests And then to round out the month on March 29 the bill regulating the sale of securities was dispatched Twenty six high significant legislative proposals Thats an example of the speed shown during the special session And the house although a bit groggy acted on each one with haste and hurried it along to the senate Grains Rise on Reports of Another Hot Wave MITCHELL FOUND NOT GUILTY OF EVASION CHARGE Banker Acquitted on
