Washington. April 22. A up government reorganization retarded by years of dispute Between Republican and democratic Peai Lents and Congress was about to be in. Today. The first of a series of reorganization orders probably will go to Congress next week. It will become effective within 60 Days unless a majority of each House rejects it. Congress specifically protected 21 More or less Independent government agencies from presidential reshuffling. These include most of the major commissions administrations and boards. Cabinet departments Are protected against abolition although various functions of any May be shifted around. A typical Republican comment on the government reorganization Bill passed at this session was that of rep. Everett Dickens r., Iii a it is authorization to rearrange the Flowers in the governmental vase but no Flowers shall be removed even though a bit there was opposition protest that reorganization would not obtain any significant Economy. New dealers were dissatisfied because the Bill As enacted was hardly More than a Shadow of the unlimited reorganization Powers sought by the president in his first request in january 1937.

He dropped the Telephone and ran toward the agents office but by that time the murderer had dashed out into the night and was never apprehended. He was seen it was thought by several persons in the Vicinity prior to Tho shooting and was described by them and they chimed he was a stranger. Within a very Short to me. Unofficial posses armed were headed for the adjoining country particularly toward Linn Dale and ready to shoot it almost anyone whom they dial not recognize.
