better de fended by G O P spokesmen in congress when the democrats attack nim is a good deal of a puzzle to politi cians The republi cans themselves do not seem to know just what theanswer is It is plain enough why the republican insur gents never have a good word to say for the white t house They dis like most of its policies as heartily as the democrats do and criticize the president quite as fiercely or more so The G O P standpatters also dislike him Far party reasons they refrain from expressing their dis like aloud but tney have no fault to find with others expressions of theirs Still

do not appear to know exactly what it is that keeps them so tonguetied xney evident ly want to do all that is required of tuem and are conscious that they are not doing it but somehow ap parently they lack any inspiration Is it possible that Congressman John N Garner the democratic leader in the house of representa tives senses more nearly than the Hooverites themselves realize it what is the matter with them Not a republican leader in either house of congress as Garner put It recently has the faintest idea what Turn in Pago 2 Column Bancroft Caucus Is Held Devine to Be Candidate for Mayor
