but members of the house let go at him with both barrels The agricultur al appropriation bill this year carries a provis ion for the crea tion of a new post in that department to be known as undersecretary of agri culture Although little was said about it openly it was believed generally that the new job was tailored es pecially to fit Professor Tugwell now serving in that department as assistant secretary Some members of the house so construed it at any rate If senators had any ideas on the subject they kept them to themselves Approval was given by that body without much being said one way or the other In the house however it was a different story Dislike Brain Waves There has been an increasing re sentment on the part of some in the house to what one representative has described as the Tugwell brain waves It flared up during debate on the Bankhead cotton compulsory con trol bill which passed the house re cently The charge was made open ly by some that the idea back of theBankhead bill was inspired by u TugweU1 tindhisschool in the department of agriculture It the charged iicFadden of Pennsylvania is the plan of Tugwell and others and is a part of the whole plan of setting up a corporate state in this country Snell the republican leader ad vanced the idea that the new job created for Tugwelia benefit and others joined in My idea saidSnell is that this proposition is advanced for the pur pose of giving another democrat a job and giving this man Tugwell a 510000 a year salary Disclaimed by G O P A democrat suggested slyly that the pref essor really was not a demo crat but a republican At this Snell exploded Tugwell he shouted Forget It Forget it He never claimed to be a republican and we certainly do not claim him Several other representatives took a crack at the good professor and his ideas before the house con sented to the creation of the position No one doubted that con sent would be given It was a de sire to strike at Tugwell they want
