Nobody got a shot nobody hut Ihe Yankee who kept bang- in; away. So Buelow and Ihe other hunters decided to move to the Yank's vantage point that they, too. might get some dove. They found their visitor, flushed with triumph. In his hands was his hoi shot- gun. At his feet was a stack of very dead scissor-tails. So another bird season ar- rives.

Solons to Really Get in Swim of Things By GEOFFREY 41OUIJ) WASHINGTON A P i Yes, the new million House of Representatives Of- fice Building is Koins to have a swimming pool for mem- bers of Congress. The capitol architect's office confirmed Thursday that plans for the huge building now under construction were changed recently lo include a 60 by 20 foot swimming pool. Philip Roof, assistant to Capitol Architect George Stewart, declined to estimate the added expense. "It will add some lo the cost, hut I don't know that it will be con- sider, he snid. Roof said the cost estimate for Ihe basic building, which is a block square and is being faced with marble, is million. This does not include a planned jfi million subway from the Capitol under Inde- pendence Avenue to the build- ing, nor does it include fur- nishings (or the offices. Roof said the change in plans was ordered by the House Office Building Com- mittee, a special body -com- posed of Speaker John W. Me- Cormack of Massachusetts, Rep. Carl Vinson, chairman of the Armed Services :Conv mittec, and Rep. James C. Auchineloss R-N. J., senior minority member of the Pub- lic Works Committee. They have authority to put into the building anything they think is needed. A res- taurant was added, for in- stance, i after construction had started, also necessitating a change'in blueprints. McC'ormack, asked about the committee's thinking on the need for a swimming pool which would match a smaller one in the Senate Of- fice Building, replied that he "would comment "at the ap- propriate time." The swimming pool subject came up Wednesday while the House was debating the ad- ministration's million emergency public works pro- gram. Rep. Alvin O'Konski, R- Wis., whose district has a high of unemployment, favored the public works bill. And he commented: "We have the million pyramid going up over here called the Third House Office he said. "We are going to have a nice, fancy, expensive swimming rool there for members of Con- gress. We are going to have massage tables, and masseurs, for members of Congress, all at the taxpayers' expense. We are going to have volley ball courts, tennis courts, ev- ery frill we possibly can have The architect's office denied a report that the plans include a 44 foot fallout shelter in the basement. A spokesman did say a sep- arate gymnasium is planned for women members of Con- gress, but that he didn't know whether they would include another small swimming pool.
