that mokes all North lowans MASON CITY IOWA SATURDAY JUNE 23 Rivals in the US Congress Coequals on surface By RAYMOND J CROWLEY WASHINGTON AP Youd better smile pardner if you cal the US House of Representatives the lower house Otherwise youre in trouble with House members For there is nothing in the Con stitution which says the Senate is higher than the House They are coequal As a matter of fact some authorities feel that if ei ther branch is expendable it is the Senate not the House But though House members get the same sena tors it has long been surmised that many of them have hidden inferiority complexes For one thing the size of the House 437 as against 100 senators tends to dilute an individual members prestige And ito get any work done the House has developed rules which regiment its runof themill members No represent ative can makea marathon speech for example At any rate the House has long suspected the Senate of haughti nessSo now representatives have their backs up They are insisting that the chairmanship of Senate House Conference Committees ap pointed to iron out differences in appropriations bills shall rotate instead of always being held by a senator This dispute has tied up several appropriations bills and many government employes face payless paydays including the valiant Secret Service Though the Constitution makes no mention of it some people con

conferees compro mise without knowing exactly what was in it Suggestions sometimes have been made that America could get along with a onechamber Congress Many foreign countries and one American state
