explana tions Intimations by Senators Nye of North Dakota and Vandenberg of Michigan that Mr Roosevelt is attempting to steal the thunder of the senate munitions investigation committee heve been met with the retort that this committee has had the support of the white house from the start In his message to congress on May 18 of this year the president de clared I am gratified to learn that such a committee has been appointed I earnestly recommend that it re ceive ttie generous support of the senate Some see General Hugh John sons presence on the Presidents special committee as evidence thai Mr Roosevelt has had such a move in mind for some time Kight in His Line They recall that when Genera Johnson stepped out as NRA ad ministrator in September the Presi dent said at the time that he would

believed in some quarters that the trend which the senates munitions investigation has taken might have had some weight with the white house At any rate the presidents spe cial committee is expected to ap proach the problem from a strictly domestic viewpoint The Nye muni tions committees investigation has been concerned largely with the in ternational phases of the question Car Rent Money Not
