parently McNary of Oregon re publican leader of the senate plans insofar as possible to pur sue the same line of strategy in leading his deci mated forces dur ing the new ses sion of congress as he employed in the last At least that would seem to be the inference from the way he acted in preses sion maneuvers One of the first things the tall dapper Oregonian did upon his re turn to Washington was to inquire if anyone knew what time Robinson of Arkansas the democratic leader of the senate would arrive He wanted to talk things over with Joe he explained in effect in an effort to figure out what the plans were for the winter Unlike Snell republican floor boss of the house he refused to be drawn into an expression of his views other than to indicate his willing ness to cooperate with the major ity Kescrvlng His Barbs Snell got rather het up when LINDBERGHS ON WITNESS STAND Byrns of Tennessee and other dem ocratic leaders of the house revealed their intentions of slashing repub lican representation on house com mittees to make room for new dem ocrats He announced with emphasis that any such shennanigans on the part of the democrats would find him in there fighting McNary on the other hand mere ly said he had no objectioss tosuch senate provided the give eacn repub Jicaa at least two mkjor committee I assignments Since there arp only 25 republi cans inall in the senate including the socalled Roosevelt type prob ably he anticipates little difficulty in having his demand granted He prefers to give ground here and reserve whatever barbs he has until later Applies the Brakes McNarys strategy as leader since the time he succeeded Jim Watson of Indiana as generalissimo of republican senators has been much the same His way apparently is not to wade in with arms flailing and voice booming in criticism of the opposi tion As a matter of fact during the last session when Robinson of In diana rarely let a day pass with out violently castigating everything democratic from the white house on down McNary more than once registered displeasure He couldnt 11 do anything about it but he tried II McNarys method is to hold the feet of the opposition as closely as possible to the fire He permits noth REPORTFRHAS SURPRISE READY ON RELIEF ISSUE Republicans Will Meet Every Proposal With Open Mind WASHINGTON Jan 3 brant democratic majorities launch ed the
