office and go home to fight Huey Longs political rule In the diate promises more trouble for the Klngfish Long defeated Ransdell for the senate in 1930 bringing to a close Ransdells 32 years service in congress The Louisianan had spent 14 years in the house and 18 in the JOSEPH E RANSDELt record in his state for continuous service It was a severe blow to Ransdell but he took it gamely He set up an office in the capital as a sort of managing director for the national institute of health the organization created by legislation he sponsored while in the senate There came word that he was through with politics that never again would he run for public of fice Any effort to get him to com ment publicly on the political situ ation in Louisiana usually was met with a polite but firm refusal He wasnt Kingfish Irks Him But he has made no attempt to conceal his dislike for Long The tactics of the Kingfish appeared of grave concern to him Before leaving Washington for Louisiana he

Louisiana is to restore a good state of af fairs there On the Other Hand But those who know him inti mately are aware that the senate holds first place In his affections His defeat in 1930 was a staggering blow and some believe that he has hopes of returning There are those who think that Longs political star la waning m Louisiana in view of his difficulties with the administration over pat

tonnage and therefore reduce the operators tonnage Feeling of Concern Baker declared that the various members of the board have a sin cere feeling of concern with reference to the effect this will have on Iowa miners but the fact ofthe matter is that we are set up in a business organization expected to do business on business principles and required to get the worth of the money for every dollar we spend We have no power to give presents or make do nations to any persons or group of persons Regarding the objection reported filed with the NRA Baker declared that instead of the difference in cost between Iowa and out of state coal being only 6 per cent the facts are for the university the difference in favor of out of state coal based on actual thermal units is 163 per cent In addition if we add 85 per cent for the difference in ash con test the net advantage of the out of state coal bid over Iowa bids is nearly 25 per cent Auto Accident Makes Bride of Day Widow CHICAGO
