Absence From Stock Act Committee Unnoticed By HERBERT PLUMMER ASHINGTON June 4 ator Carter Glass of Virginia was denied represen tation on the stock market control bill con ference commit tee but his ab sence s c a r c e ly could be noted The agreement finally reached by the conferees proved what many believed all the ideas of the Vir ginia senator would prevail in the end It has been a long time since an individual member of congress achieved such a personal victory as did Glass in this instance And it must be set down as just personal victory for Glass The most powerful forces of the administration were aligned against him Perhaps anyone except a man of his temperament would have capitulated long ago He didnt and by not doing so he forced reasser tion of the longbelieved fact that in this field of legislation Glass still must be reckoned with Glass Fought Issue Glass was determined that a separate commission should ad minister the stock market control act He insisted that the federal trade commission was too busy with its other duties to supervise proper ly such an important job as this one He fought the issue successfully through the banking and currency committee and persuaded the sen ate itself to accept his idea The president waa opposed to his plan and publicly stated that he thought the federal trade commis sion waa the proper administrative T Although the democrat on theBanking and currency com mittee Glass was leftoff thelist of senate conferees chargedwith the duty of adjusting differences in the proposed legislation with tie house He charged that he was deliber ately snubbed and threatened to re sign his position on the committee Not Through Yet He made the atmosphere on capitol hill sizzle as the bill went to conference The three senate con Byrnes and Bark only were aware of the fact that Glass had stirred up a hornets nest but also knew only too well he would go even further if they yielded completely to the presidents wishes They held both by respect and fear of the Virginian the house conferees the so called young brain trusters and even the president himself gave way Nor is Glass through yet His victory wont be complete until the personnel of the administrative agency is named And if those ap pointed to administer the bill are not to Glass liking therell be more storm warnings hoisted on capitol hill by the Virginia senator
