the distressed ves sel was in dire need of harmony among all members of the crew Instead approximately half of them half of the democratic con gressional fomast hands that is to say bolted the masters commands This half plus most of the republi can contingent was ample as we know to force the navigatorin chief into barricading himself in his white house cabin with the flag of revolt flying at the

capitol hill like President Hoover in the second half of his to have his recommendations overriden is no particular affront that is in the na ture of Even for a president who has pnly a skimpy majority it isnt so bad He can console himself with the thought that lawmakers of the op Dosingparty are certain to vote ffainst bin anyway and that a andful of seceders from his own are not truly

demand subse quently wished off on to Senators Harrison of Mississippi and Robin Eon of Arkansas that it be acted on within a week Ive heard predictions made that President Roosevelt wouldnt be re elected Ive poohpoohad them Then Ive heard predictions that he wouldnt even be renominated Ive thought they were perfectly ridiculous But now What can one count on from a socalled party leader who loses 216 to 146 with a party majority of 319 to 116 in the house of representa tives Is he right or is the majority all out of step FORECAST IOWA Showers or thunder showers probable Tuesday night or
