inflation amendment offered by Thomas of Oklahoma was consented to be cause he had threatened if it was not accepted he would offer the bonus as a rider While Senator Glass of Virginia vehemently declared he would tell no one what he would do in confer ence the impression was that both the Thomas and McCarran amend ments were agreed to because it was thought they could be knocked out in
