been made however even if much remains to be done Although the session is but two months old three major relief laws requested by the president have been enacted Work has been done en other suggestions still pending Probably the most important measure passed thus far in the ses sion was that resulting In devalua tion of the gold dollar The civil works program and other forms of emergency
