Extension of Remarks By HERBERT PLUMMER WASHINGTON July 11 That granfl id congressional game of revising and extending ones remarks inthe congressional record took on a new zest and meaning when the special session was brought to a close The record was kept open for 10 days after con gress adjourned to permit mem bers to express what they thought of the a ccomplishments during the three and o n e h a 1 f months session W OYRMS to tell of the part they played and to air any grievances tfiey might have for the benefit of the folks back home In most instances these revisions and extensions take the form of a report to the congressmans con stituents as to how he spent his time in Washington in their behalf Important to Majority This waa vitally important to the majority of them at the close of this session Opportunities for ex pression at the time legislation was in the making presented themselves rarely What with special rules lim iting debate to a minimum and the fast pace that President Roosevelt set for them from the first drop of the hat most of them were forced into silence And when it is considered that there were so many new members to come in with the seventythird congress men whose political fur tures perhaps hinged on what kind of a record they made on their first trip to Washington the situation seemed all the more serious Co them Use Blany Pages Of course the leaders like Repre sentatlves Joe Byrns among the Bertrand Sriejl the reT i the Senate pages 4 of tie postsession record in giving resumes of the special session These however were planned more for national than local con sumption The issues of the con gressional elections next year and possibly campaign material for the presidential election in 1936 may be gathered by reading the reports of these three party leaders Not so much with the individual member who placed his remarks in the record What he has to say is for home consumption and designed either to mend or keep intact his political fences so that he can lean on them when he comes up for re election next year Exhorts His Party Thus we see Representative Lun deen farmerlabor of Minnesota exhorting his party to action with the words that unless a party is builded in this country rooted in the workers of the soil and workers of the hand and brain iri offices and cities relief for the people will be a long time in arriving And Representative Gray of In diana expresses his resentment at the treatment accorded the veterans in these terms I would rather go back to a log cabin with a dirt floor and sleep on a bed of straw and wear sackcloth for clothing and maintain good faith and my word and pledge to the sol diers than to be welcomed at the door of a mansion or a gilded palace and win the praise and plaudits

WILL ROGERS ropyriahl MrNntlKM WASHINGTON July isfaction in various republican quarters with the partys national committee setup is crystallizing rapidly into a move to reorganize1 the headquarters here The present national chairman Everett Sanders who was chosen a year ago on the recommendation of former President Hoover is the target of the dissatisfaction He is said to be uncomfortably aware of the rumblings of discontent in the national committee some of which has to do with recent premature attacks on the Roosevelt adminis tration Though Sanders has given no in dication of an intention to retire it is said a group national com mlttecmen will assemble In Wash ingtonin tuenear to can vass quietly the reorganization problem The full committee ca be assembled at any time on th call of

harvest in decades but farm ad ministrators are going right ahead today with plans to make smaller crops the future fashion The worst crop weather in 50 years provided by droughts ex cessive heat storms grasshoppers and insects Is responsible for what in many areas will be a total crop failure with yields lowered through most of the grain and corn belts far below average But natures method of curtailing production is unsatisfactory says Secretary Wallace It brings trage dy to some and higher prices to who are lucky enough to raise something Smallest Since 1803 He made this plain after reading estimtcs of the crop reporting hoard forecasting the smallest wheat crop since 1893 one of the four smallest corn harvests in 32 years and the lightest crop of oats since 1807 Through the farm adjustment act he says it will be possible to bring about a uniform reduction of output by cooperative action of farmers thus reducing the supply of farm commodities and increasing prices to a point where farm purchasing power will be returned to prewar level That applies he says to cot ton as well as grains and corn Short Grain Crop Ho said that the exceedingly short grain crop while solving to some extent the surplus carryover from last year can easily cause both farmers and city people to lose sight of the fact that we are still planting more acres to grain than can be consumed in this country or sold at a fair price abroad The unusual weather conditions of this year and higher prices re sulting will distort the judgment of the farmers of the United States as to what they should plant next year unless we are able to cooperate in some effective way under the mech anism of the agricultural act he asserted After Conference Acreage reduction of wheat to that required under the wheat plan he said will not be determined un til after the London wheat confer ence and establishment of the sig nificance of this years small crop George N Peek chief administrat or said that the small crop in no way will affect the determination of farm administrators to continue in effect the 3 cent per bushel wheat processing tax which became effec tive Sunday The boards estimates indicated
