orator Pat Harrison demo crat Whenever op portunity affords these two slip away to the highly exclusive Burning Tree club which boasts that no woman ever has been permitted to gob there and fight it out on the links An indication of how keen the rivalry between the two senators is was given on the floor of the senate recently during debate on a resolu tion offered by Nye of North Da kota calling upon General Hugh Johnson to give the senate a list of NRA executives with their previous business connections Administration leaders sought to block passage of the resolution Rob inson the democratic leader and Harrison chairman of the finance committee wanted the request re ferred to the latters committee for review first The Golfing Angle Harrison had concluded with a spirited plea that his committee be permitted to examine the resolution before the senate took action when Couzens interrupted Why he demanded if the sen ator sees no harm in the senate hav ing this information does he make such an issue of it Its just my way replied Pat in naive fashion Im skeptical of people who make long speeches about harm leas things Couzens retorted p Now began Pat in a concilia senator from Mich

NRA itself Senator Nye the author and Gen eral Johnson have clashed openly on NRA policies Johnson has char acterized Nye as one of the politi cal tomtom beaters and the sena tor has replied that Nero

provided that the United States vould retain the option of keeping ertain military and naval bases in he islands after independence Mr Roosevelt proposed that the nilitary bases be relinquished simul aneous with independence As to the naval bases he recom mended the ultimate settlement of his matter on terms satisfactory to ur own government and that of the Philippine islands No Other Changes I do not believe he said that other provisions of the original law need be changed at this time Where mperfection or inequalities exist I am confident that they can be cor rected after proper hearing and in fairness to both peoples May I emprasize that while we desire to grant complete independ ence at the earliest proper moment to effect this result without allow ing sufficient time for necessary po litical and economic adjustments would be a definite in justice to the people of the Philippine Islattd themselves little short of a denial o Independence itself To change at this time the econ omic
