PLUMMER WASHINGTON July 26 Its likely that before the regular ses sion of congress rolls around in Jan uary Bert Snell Charlie Mo Nary republican leaders in the house and sen ate will implore whatever politi cal gods there be to spare them the ordeal they went through in the special ses sion No two party chieftains ever had a more dif ficult time or a more discourag ing task than did these two during the some 100 days congress was in session this spring There was nothing for them to do but go along with the demo cratic plans in instances They wanted their party to be able to claim a share in the successful moves yet assume no responsibility for any failures Tables Turned Snells attack in the house almost invariably sprang from one source democratic leaderships fond ness for bringing in the socalled gag rule to rushlegislation through quickly and safely The portly New Yorker had a lot of fun on this issue The demo crats who so blandly cooked up this scheme of legislating were the very ones who when they were in the minority raised the most rumpus when the republicans resorted to that strategy Digs Up Speeches Gleefully Snell went back into the congressional record and dug up old speeches the democrats had made on the subject His fire was aimedat the more than 100 new members on the dem ocratic side who he said were being hand and foot by their leaders successful McNary had no such opportunity in the senate Rules there are al ways the same so he had to pick a different course Always on Guard The Oregonian therefore set him self up as a guard over the senates business He blocked all attempts of the democratic leaders to put through incidental legislation that this or that senator desired His strategy was to keep the sen ate constantly plugging on the ma jc emergency measures He had reason for gratification in the fact that of the 8685 bills introduced in the house and senate during the spe cial session only 105 laws were en acted ROOSEVELT CALLS PLAN
