NEIGHBORS HOME EDITION VOL XL FIVE CUNTS A COPY ASSOCIATED PRESS LEASED WIRE SERVICE MASON CITY IOWA THURSDAY FEBRUARY 22 1934 THIS PAPER CONSISTS OF TWO SECTIONS SECTION ONE NO 117 Protest at Gag Rule House Members Say Senate Changes Bill Anyway SUNDAY SALE OF BEER REJECTED By HEKBERT FLUMMER ASHINGTON Feb 22 jection on the part of member of the house to being gagged as they choose to term itfdur ing consideration of the new rev enue bill is based to a great extent on pride It Is all very well for the chairman of the ways and means committee to tell them that its a good bill but It is irritating to many of them to hear him add that If members get a chance to amend certain provi sions it wont be as good when passed as it now is As one of the members put It Whats the use of throttling us everybody knows this bill will go to the senate and return to us unrecognizable In this way we ad mit our own inferiority The house generally since the be ginning of the present administra tion has submitted in more or less docile fashion to all of the restric tions imposed upon it by the lead ership There been rumblings of discontent but in the end it has yielded Special Rules Stifle in the special session and thus far In the present one they have con sented with some graciousness to being stifled by special rules Mem bers many of them able and am bitious faced with stiff election contests later on in the year have remained in obscurity so the ad ministrations legislative program could be enacted The appropriation continuing CWA 4was passed in 40 minutes no and with only ting vote Here would oil excellent opportunity for trie members to manufacture material for home con sumption i And the income fax and revenue bill offered a rare op portunity Tax measures always have been regarded by members of congress as something in which all should have a share It was but natural that objections should be raised when the leaders shut them off with 16 hours of de bate and deprived them of the right to offer amendments Safeguards Held Vital Experience has taught the ad ministration leaders however of the dangers of throwing such a measure to the house without safe guards They fear that otherwise the labor and care which the ways and means committee has lavished on the bill since last June probably might be wasted The committee wouldnt be able to recognize its bill after the house got through with it The senate may and in all prob ability will return it to the house in unrecognizable shape But the administration will still hold the whip hand When the bill goes to conference house conferees backed by a power ful democratic majority are able to force compromises and delete pro visions they disapprove no matter how much it may irk tbe senate Adler
