ROOSEVELT GOT WHAT HE ASKED CONGRESS TO DO Touch of Unruliness Is Noted During Closing Sessions By SAM BLEDSOE WASHINGTON June 16 Almost without exception the things done by the congress just ended were the things Franklin D Roosevelt wanted done In the closing days there was a familiar touch of unruliness on the hill an uprising which brought compromise on veterans legisla tion and delay in adjournment But the record already had been writ ten From the first day of the special session March 9 until congress quit it was dominated by the white house a domination so complete that it is without parallel in peace times Asked for Advice Senators and representatives were called in for advice from time to time They aided in shaping Im portant legislation or rather a few of them did But the plans were made at 1600 Pennsylvania avenue already drawn in many instances before congressional leaders heard about them A combination of circumstances brought this about among them anii the democratic majority in con gress One factor was the Roosevelt per sonality The president has shown a faculty for saying no without arousing resentment for composing differences and meeting men with a friendliness which influenced their attitude toward his proposals Shows Independence On the other hand he manifested his independence by choosing some of his most intimate advisors out side congress and party ranks Some legislators liked it none too well but all they did was to make an occasional satirical reference to the brain trust Long before the president told congress flatly he had a veto ready if there were further liberalization of veterans compensation reduction law he had proved he could be just as insistent and unyielding as men who grew red in the face over fun damental differences Essentially however the Roose velt strategy has been one of per Euaslon though congress has been so willing that a threat sufficed in most instances The president has demonstrated too that he could change tactics quickly to reach a desired objective Succession of Reports Once at a press conference he smilingly told newspapermen that he was like a quarterback who knows what he wants to do but whose choice of the next play de pends upon the success of the last one Prior to March 4 there was a succession of reports that the pres identelect hoped there would be no necessity for a special session and that he would have time to study the situation and draw his program before congress met He took the oath of office at a time when almost every bank in the country was closed He had to do something about it and it was ap parent he intended to in his inaug ural promise of direct and vigorous action Even so it is doubtful that Mr Roosevelt then envisioned the se quence of measures which became law before the middle of June Messages of March The days in March on which re quests were made for legislation show the swift succession March 9 emergency banking bill March 10 the economy measure March 14 the beer bill March 16 the farm bill March 21 civilian conservation corps March 29 securities regula tion act Others followed until on May 17 the president launched the revolu tionary Industrial control public works proposal Naturally the question arises How did he find time for all that The simplest and most complete answer is that he worked three quarters around the clock
