has voted And he cannot know these things if legislative business is done in secret The secret confirmation of ap pointments has been dead in the United States Senate for almost 40 years In Iowa it lingers on completely out of place in a modern democratic society Attacks are made in these ses sions that the appointee cannot answer Hughes said No sena tor is forced to account to the pub lic for his vote against an ap pointee Qualified men of un questionable honesty are turned down by the Iowa Senate at al most every session and no one ever knows by whom or why Hughes recalled his opposition
