republican leaders objected to hts activity They expressed themselves as be Jievingthat this is no time for any thing lit that for the reason it was said that there are no outstanding issues at the present At any rate Sanders soon called off his conferences and made a trip to Europe Watching and Waiting The strategy the G O P lead ers seems to be one of watchful waiting They are waiting for the breaks Political precedents indicate to them that they will recapture some of the seats in the house that they lost in the Roosevelt landslide of last year Some of them feel perhaps that the hope of recapturing control of the house soon is a forlorn one but that enough will return to the fold to give them something to work on Meanwhile thoughts of the presi dential campaign in 1936 or con flicting personal political ambitions take secondary places Political par ties usually return to power by try ing first to gain control of one of the houses of congress The late Senator Penrose of

Plan Eight years later Penrose and the Old Guard republicans were in com plete political control of the coun try again And that whether four eight or 12 years was what Pen rose had in mind Political issues will begin to be clarified as soon as congress gets back to Washington next January It will be then that permanent leg islation embracing the workable parts of recovery machinery set up in the

price swing re strictions on grain market opera tions were receiving consideration from two sources of them federal authorities President Peter B Carey of the Chicago board of trade said it would probably take action before Monday to modify or eliminate the limitations on daily fluctuations to 5 cents a bushel either way for wheat rye and barley 4 cents for corn and 3 cents for oats Carey said officials of the boani believed that no limit is necessary but that a 10 cent limit would be more comparable to the range now placed on cotton trading He explained that no action would be taken however without the approval of the federal depart ment of agriculture A representa tive of the board is now in Wash ington presumably to obtain its acquiescence said Tfie suits Involve only legal questions Report on Corn The state contends that the Taw requires importers of motor vehicle fuel to report the invoiced gallon age of the tank cars in which the motor vehicle fuel is imported into the state and permits them to de duct three per cent of such invoiced gallonage to cover evaporation and loss and the payment of the license fee only on the balance of tho gal lonage The two companies however have been filing claims for refunds on the loss by evaporation and spillage in addition to the refunds on 3 per cent of the invoiced gal lonage at the point of shipment Powers said The loss by evapora tion and spillage was computed through measurement of the un loaded gallonogc Moru Than Angle The state contends that since they deducted the statutory 3 per cent for evaporation and loss when they originally paid the tax Pow ers said and since that was more than ample to cover the actual evaporation and loss that no tax was ever paid on the actual evap oration and loss and the payment of refund on such gallonago was improper and unauthorized by law The oil companies differ in their interpretation of the portion of the law which permits reduction of It per cent of the invoiced
