HOME EDITION VOL XLI ASSOCIATED PRESS LEASED WIRE SEHVICB MASON CITY IOWA TUESDAY DECEMBER 18 1934 THIS PAPER CONSISTS OF TWO SECTIONS SECTION ONE See Trouble in Congress Administration Not Expecting to Have Clear Sailing By HERBERT PLOTEMER ASHINGTOM Dec 18 Iffl Backstage gossi here has it tha the white nous deliberately in spired Vice Pres ident Garner declare recent that the adminis tration w o u 1 keep hands off i the speakershi fight Cactus Jacks assertion was t the effect that h had seen no ev dence the execu live end of th government intended to interfer with the legislative and added hi own opinion That is as it shout be There is more to it than that however Washington politicians be lieve Heres their explanation As the situation looks now the ad ministration probably will encoun ter trouble in the coming congress particularly in the house There ar several possible sources of embar rassment looming on the legislativ horizon That Veterans Bonus Immediate cash payment of th veterans bonus is one The issue may be sidetracked in the senate but no one will predict with any de gree of assurance what will happen in the house Such questions as permanent NRA legislation relief the St Law rence waterway and perhaps the currency issue may provoke any amount of trouble for the adminis tration Politicians believe President Roosevelt has kept this thought up permost in his mind during all his reflections on the leadership of the louse in the next congress That he ia desirous of having as strong an organization as possible no one de afford to do anything bring about such a desired result is an other question And it is thought for this reason the administration to throw its support to any one candidate or even so much AS make a gesture in that direction and later in the ses sion the house were to turn its back on the president on a major legisla tive proposal the result might prove embarrassing Not My Baby It might then be charged by op posing forces that men hand picked by the administration to be its house leaders are unable to main tain control On the other hand with the presi dent playing handsoff in the mat ter there will be no such reaction If the house chooses to oppose his wishes in any given legislative pro posal he can make use of one of his favorite not my baby Theres another advantage to the administration also in keeping aloof in the fight President Roosevelt has a habit of firing messages to con gress one by one Heretofore be cause of the strict rules of the house that body has been able to act quickly on a measure and pass it on to the slowermoving senate The strategy has been to have the house load up the senate calendar and force that body to move more quickly than ordinarily it would By taking no hand in an affair which strictly concerns only the house the president probably wil be able to continue this practice without incurring friction from dis gruntled elements NO 58 NOTES THREATENING F R PROBED Government of Yugoslavia Prepares to Quit DELAYS MOVE AS 2 MEMBERS OF CABINET RESIGN Minister Who Settled Hungarian Crisis Steps Out BELGRADE Dec 18 Yugoslav cabinet reconsidered its decision to resign today after the

government Coming at the moment when the country expected the govern lent would honor Yevtich with the remiership as a reward for his ork at Geneva in the Hungarian risis the foreign ministers with
