NORTH 1OWANS NEIGHBORS HOME EDITION VOL CENTS A COPY ASSOCIATED PRESS LEASED WIRE CITY IOWA WEDNESDAY MAY 23 PAPEH CONSISTS OF TWO SECTIONS SECTION 194 Glass Can Blame Self Could Have Headed Bank Group and Steered Act By HERBERT PLtJMMER ASHINGTON May 23 Curiously enough Senator Carter Glass of Virginia had it within his power at the very be ginning of the Roosevelt admin istration to pre vent what be now contends is a gross affront which was de liberately intend ed by the sen ate banking and currency com mittee The Virginianhas been on the aarpath because he was excluded from the list of senate conferees on the stock market control bill He was so infuriated that it was report ed he wanted to resign his member ship on the committee When the democrats proceeded to organize the senate after their smashing victory in 1932 Senator Glass occupied an enviable position By virtue of his long service he found himself eligible for two pow erful committee chairmanships They were banking and currency and appropriations Glass Had Choice Everything in Glass public ca reer pointed to his acceptance of the banking and currency post A former secretary of the treasury a member of thesenate since 1920 his hand had been in evidence in nearly all financial legislation en acted over a period of more than SO years As a member of tae house he fathered the federal reserve bank system and is regarded generally as the foremost congressional author ity on financial matters But Glass sprang a surprise when tie committee slates were an nouneed Fletcher of Florida took the banking andJcurrencyv tee s listed as head ofVthe appropriations committee It was just another odd twist which polities sometimes forces ITS For History Had things been reversed the his tory of banking legislation in the present congress might have been ar different from what it is There have been many things done by Sen ator Fletchers committee which have not been to Glass liking and which he could have changed per haps had he been chairman Certainly he would have been on the list of senate conferees on the stock market control bill And in view of the fight he put up in the senate to have a separate five man commission instead of the federal trade commission administer the actj as well as for more liberal mar gin regulations than were provided in the house bill it might have been a wholly different piece of legisla tion than that which finally went to the white house for approval FORECAST Fair to partly cloudy Wed nesday night and Thursday slightly cooler Wednesday night in
