COPY ASSOCIATED PKESS LEASED WIRE SERVICE MASON CITY IOWA SATURDAY APRIL 6 1935 Situation Is Similar Congress Likely to Be More Difficult Than Last Year By HKRUERI PJLUMMER ASHINGTON April 6 There is a strik ing parallel be tween tbe situa tion in Washing ton as President Roosevelt vaca tions in Florida with that pre vailing a year ago when he slipped away for a similar jaunt It extends even to the personal Last year he left the naval hos pital here where his son John was confined af ter an operation for appendicitis and went directly to his train which took him to Florida This year he bade farewell to his intimate friend and confidant Col Louis Howe ser iously ill at the white house before starting south The situation in congress was similar in many respects Shortly before his departure in March fact on the same of the house of repre sentatives overriding his independ ent office bill veto reached him Not only were his budget estimates upset by this action but it seemed at the time his administration stood to lose in prestige Much to Be Despite assurances from his aides on capitol hill that the present was the best time for him to get away for a needed rest it still is true the situation in congress leaves much to be desired The threat of deadlocks on legis lation marked for passage during this session troubles the adminis tration The order is for full speed ahead during the presidents absence on social security elimination of util ity holding company abuses exten sion of NRA transportation legisla tion increased capital for HOLC banking legislation and tightening up of pure food and drug laws Its an ambitious program and one which may be impossible of complete fulfillment this session Rockier Road Now Yet congressional leaders are not unmindful of what happened when a tanned and Frank lin D Roosevelt returned from Florida a year ago Little of his program had been enacted but by midJune of 1934 these same lead ers were surprised to see how much had been accomplished Whether therell be a repetition of this sort of thing upon the presi dents return to Washington this year whether the white house will be able to effect suitable compro mises to further its program no one knows What with Huey Long and the tendency of the senate as a whole to act independently on pro posed legislation the Roosevelt path in 35 is far from being as smooth as it was in
