other senators get up and hustle to the Capitol every week day morning in time for an 11 o clock roll call what an ungodly hour for the U S senate to Meet1 but noon would be too late with the whole country hollering for action on the tariff bill David Aiken Reed of Pennsylvania and Joseph Taylor Robinson of Arkansas are enjoying a glorious vacation at the internat ional armament limitation confer ence in London However it will be the turn of Senators Reed and Robinson to do some perspiring when they arrive home again and begin trying to ex raln to their countrymen how the conference has affected Uncle Sams navy It makes no particular difference how the conference really does af fect it Senators Reed and Robinson not being professional seafaring men probably will not understand that anyway The essential fact is that the bargain whatever it may be is certain to be complicated and puzzling A lot of people are sure to want to find fault with it and there will be no satisfying them Or if the affair should happen to break up in a row then there would be a terrible howl t T J Dave Reed and Robinson are having a fine time at present Y Plenty of their brother lawmak ers are wondering what President Hoover saw in those two that made him pick that particular pair out of a total of 96 eligibles to represent the senate at the London gathering The fact is the president would have had to choose nearly the entire to have suited everyone and that would have been too many one thing Mr Hoover tm Ooubtedly hit on Senators Reed Robinson because they both are of the foreign relations ajrepubhcan and Robin each party alookin Truer farmer j labor group is unrepresented and nfconfidentially Senator Henrik Shlpstead of Minnesota knows more about foreign relations than Reed and Robinson put but the president may have thot a group of one was too small to bother with Even as to Reed and tho foreign relations committee members neither one is especially prominent on that committee Reed is interested more deeply in boost ingtariff rates on all Pennsylvania products Robinson as democratic leader in the senate is kept too busy with the details of general political management to devote i much time to committee work CENATOR WILLIAM E BORAH is chairman of the foreign rela i r committee and on that vi I d if he had wanted to go to the president unquestion UA ably would have had to send him It might have been good business U that Borahs conduct recently has not been such as to win him any re wards from the white house cer lainly Still assuming that he him self had had a hand in whatever A agreement may be arrived at in v London he could not very well j balk at it later when it comes up for consideration in the and otherwise he wilt raise heck J about it or he is not William E j Borah But Borah did not want to go he wants to remain free to raise heck rr we can safely bet on fVJT tbe otner republican for V eign relations commltteemen It seems reasonable
