accom plished Joe Byrns of Tennessee the democratic lead er of the house issued the first His statement re viewed the ses sion in glowing terms Never be fore in the his tory of the coun try said Byrns JOSEPH TRosfwsoM in effect had so much been done for the common good as was done in the special session Joe Robinson of Arkansas who holds the some position In the sen ate as Byrnes does in the house suit with a statement in much the same vein Then came Bert Snell the repub lican general of the house sounding a note of dire warnine The funda mental precepts on which the na tion was founded have been swept aside said Snell Absent in Re ports I Conspicuously absent in these reports to the country was that of Charles McNary republican lead er of the senate and generally re garded as one of the most astute of G O P chieftains There can be no doubt that Mc Nary has his own ideas about what has happened in Washington since March 4 Hell tell you if you ask that in his opinion four of the im portant issues certain to be thresh ed out on the stump in future elec tions are the tariff sound money treatment of the war veterans and nationsaism vs internationalism But as far as the other things

the drowsy world economic conference today by James M Cox of Ohio who con vinced his colleagues of the sterling committee that the parley could usefully continue despite refusal of the federal reserve
