By CHARLES P STEWART ASHINGTON Senator James Couzens beaten for re n o m i n a tion in Michigan will be missed in Wash ington He has been one of the most picturesque a w m a k ers on A capitol hill He has made various of his legislative asso ciates and numer ous functionaries in the executive branch of the pret ty wrathy from time tc time for he has referred to spades as spades with a deal of pungency He thinks he isnt an orator and in the aca demic sense maybe he isnt but there have been plenty of occasions when he has raised particular hades in debate on the floor of the upper congressional chamber by the exceeding plainness of the terms in which he expressed him lot more effectively than he have employed any fancy flourishes He also was too independent to have close political friendships Officially a republican the re publicans never have been sure that they could depend on him He certainly isnt a democrat Called Him Members of the progressive bloc1 have rather considered him one of their own but there have been is sues on which the have denounced him as positively reactionary They expect reaction from reactionaries but it always has shocked them when Jim Corneas has taken the conservative side of a HITS TRADING RELIEF FOR VOTES ONeal Asks Roosevelt to Create Farm Council arid made them furious he is they saj The truth is that Couzens is nol a republican a democrat or a progressive He simply is Couzens In the main he is a liberal but with conservative streaks in him The democrats wanted to run him as their senatorial candidate in Michigan this year He had no compunctions as to accepting a democratic nomination but il elected as a democrat he was bound to return to Washington minus his old republican seniority rights coming in as a democratic baby His Lifes Blood Folk out in the sticks may not think that this amounts to much but seniority is his lifes blood to a member of congress Rather than jeopardize it Couzens was prepared to risk being defeated for renomin ation His nomination as being blocked thus a democrat the senator chose to seek renomination as a that he cared a boot for republicanism but to save his personal seniority To be a reasonably promising republican senatorial candidate however he had to indorse Governor Landon He would not do that either he insisted on running as a republican candidate on a democratic platform He fell between two as the oldtime saying puts it Man of Paradoxes Senator Couzens at that is ac customed to political jobs to meet emergencies regardless of politics He once told me He was police commissioner of Detroit He said it was the most enjoyable job he ever had in his life But he had an opponent a candi date for mayor who was sure to fire him if his rival won the mayorality Couzens did not want the may orality but he did not want to be He had to win the mayorality to save himself from being He won the mayoralty but lost the pohce commissionership This time he may have lost and yet won SPANISH CAPITAL ON NERVOUS EDGE Crowds in Streets Raise Clenched Fists Shout No Copyright 1856 by The Associated PERPIGNAN France formed travelers reaching here Tuesday from
