tLike All of Newcomers to Senate By HERBERT PUJIVEHEB WASHINGTON June 9 President Garner like all newcom ers to the senate is getting his share of senatorial razzing but he is returning in kind Its amusing to watch the progress of this friendly feud which flares up ever so often in the senate Garner came over from the house where he had ruled with such authority with certain ideas of his own JOHN w GARNER as to parliamen tary procedure He didnt like Vice President Dawes try to institute drastic reforms He merely endeav ored to speed up procedure when ever possible Objects to Haste Borah went to him privately at one time and objected to the haste with which he dispatched a certain bill Jack laughed told the Idaho senator that hed take a slap on the wriit at any time even more but senators were supposed to be on their toes and alive to what was go ing on 1 Several days ago the senate was considering an amendment to a bill involving a change in postal rates Time came for a vote and it was a tie The vice president wasnt in the chair to cast his vote which would have broken the tie was at a cabinet meeting Republicans saw an excellent oportunity Reed of Pennsylvania arose and asked Where Is the vice president Dawes Missed Once One of the classic stories of the senate concerns the time that a vice president wasnt in the chair on auckVanl occasion It during er shoiiW be con firmed as Cobllageschoice for at torney general Dawes was in his downtown hotel when the vote wan taken He made a frantic effort to get to the senate chamber but failed Warren was not confirmed Reed reminded the senate of story and the fun the democrats had at Dawes expense when they criticized him for noting Garners absence Revenge at Last Cactus Jack waited for his op portunity to get even It came A few days later the senate was considering an amendment by Con nally of Texas to reduce veterans pensions 25 per cent An effort was being made to put the reduction at 15 per cent The vote was a tie 42 to 42 Without a moments hesitation Garner announced his vote in favor of Connallys amendment making it 43 for 42 against Immediately opponents of the Connally amendment were on their feet with a point of order that Gar ner had no right to vote as it was a tie vote and would have failed Down came Garners gavel and the cryptic retort The chair has a vote and he has already cast it Refuse
