the youthful matic legal HERBERT PLUMMEK ASHING TON July 12 While consider a b 1 e mystery continues to en velop just what the president had in mind when he named Donald R Richberg NRA general counsel as coordinator of t h e various emergency relief activities during the summer many observers believe one thing is certain It is doubtful if eloquent and diplo Iviser for NRA will return to his old post in the fall Although granted leave of ab sence from NRA until Sept 1 it is thought Mr Roosevelt has other plans for Richberg in the future The best guess seems to be that his duties will be in the field of plan ning for retention of those phases of the new deal deemed worthy of being made permanent In his new job Richberg will have opportunity to view the whole ma chinery of recovery in broad out line and not simply from the stand point of NRA This experience plus the ability he has demonstrated already as one of the key men of NRA should make him doubly valuable to the adminis tration in the working out of its plans in the future Breathing Spell Here Everything points to the quietest period from now until Sept 1 the national capital has experienced since President Roosevelt enterSd the white house on March 4 1933 It begins to appear as if that longawaited breathing spell for DECLARES NRA HELPED FARMERS All Ready for Big NRA Drive Declares Straus from his vacation cruise

before he flew westward on a speaking and vacation trip Simultaneously the NRA chief pro mulgated a basic code designed for the scores of still uncoded small industries Straus described the program out lined by Johnson to end code making and free NRA for enforcement work as falling into lour parts First he said there are indus tries for which we will continue to develop individual codes In this group were ranked 135 pending codes on which NRA wants an agreement within two weeks Special Conditions there were codes described boththe caoital and the nation is a reality So far as is Also khbim no and important Itiated until the economic labor or legal conditions These do not come under the basic code offer but will have individual codes developed The class includes last of August i shipping anthracite coal communi Mr Roosevelt has passed out the cations and all the major utility and fabricated structural steel indus tries Second Strauss said we have industries which will choose to merge with existing kindred codes NRA expects most of the uncoded industries to choose this method It word to his aides to take it easy po litically be several of them touring the country during the next few weeks making speeches in be half of the new deal but a re newal of the feverish activity which has characterized the past months is not expected It probably wont be until the U S S Houston docks in Seattle some time in August and lands its distinguished passenger that things will start really humming once more Telling Constituents To 33 year old Thomas OMalley of Wisconsin a first termer in the house probably goes the distinction of thinking up the most novel method of acquainting his constit uents of what he did in their behalf in the seventythird congress in an effort to convince them to keep him in for another term The youthful and earnest Mr OMalley consumed some eight pages in the congressional record just before adjournment in making cut his case He listed every vote he cast and gave in detail the reasons why he voted as he did He went back through past issues of the record picked out those instances where he participated in debate on the floor or made a speech and set
