On all sides was a realization that the course of the 1936 campaign, and perhaps the national destiny Itself, may be tremendously affect- ed by the results. The Justice department asked the highest court to review the case of the Hoosic Mills In Massachusetts, under which the Boston circuit court held against the AAA last month.

It carried appropriations for the social security board, the railroad workers and the Guffey coal con- trol board. Unless the administra- tion can find funds from other sources, these newly created agen- cies, representing a large part. of the wort of an eight months, ses- sion of congress, will remain dor- mant until congress meets again ic January. Comptroller general J. R. McCatl ruled informally that the adminis- tration could not use funds from relief :appropria, going, ether" the 'administration would be able to tap other'appropriations still was in doubt, but there was a growing belief that social security, railroad pensions, and the Guffey coal board all would have to wait until January to begin life With every senator in the cham- ber against him, Long .tallied from dusk to midnight. The senate and the house previously had agreed to adjourn at njldnJght. Under senate rules there was no way of stopplng.hlm and, despite the pleas of colleagues to sit down and per- mit the deficiency bill to pass, Long kept on until the adjournment reso- lution took effect. Long was fighting for the senate rider to the deficiency bill calling for a 12-cent cotton loan and a 1 1-2 cent "wheat loan. This issue prevented adjourning Saturday night.
