MOTbR AND WAGON FIGURE IN COLLISION WASHINGTON, Sept. Pat Harrison, of Mississippi is the Democrat who is going .to .lead the fight, so far as his party is con- cerned, .for public sessions of the coming conference for the limitation of armaments. Senator Harrison is the light-horse cavalry of the Demo- crats in the Senate. He plays Stone- wall Jackson to Senator Uriderwood'9 Robert E. In a rather unusually serious Sen- ate, there is nothing more enter- taining than the smiling and ingra- tiating urbanity with which Senator Harrison rises at every opportunity to make a guerilla raid across the aisle into the Republican lines and make a little ammunition to store away in ihe Congressional Record against thf time, nex't summer, when his party will be fighting to regain control of Congress. Once In a while something- the Senate is doing reaches. down to some deep convic- tion in Senator Harrison's breast.' On such an occasion he will fight with as much earnestness as a Mis- sissippi bearcat. But for the most part he waits for a time when Sen- ator Lodge, or some other Repub- lican leader, has his bark t'o the wall j on a party', issue, or something that can be made a party issue. Then Senator Harrison unfolds the length of his lean figure from the depths of his Senate chair and, with a smile that is like a rippling wavp on his agreeable countenance, pro-I cpeds to throw knives' that almost j trim' the whiskers of'his pinioned I Tension victim. He does it all- with -a gentle j irony, with a m'ock 'sympathy and an elaborateness of conside'ration for his opponent such that the gal- lery has come to smile pleased. expectation whenever the Mississippi Senator arises.
