HERBERT PLUMMER WASHINGTON March 19 Talk of a third party in 1936 while still more or less nebulous has tak en on a new meaning in view of recent develop ments in Wash ington Politicians and political analysts point to several which they believe is indicative of the trend in this di rection While they quick to say it is highly improbable the opposition t o President Roose velt will become formidable enough to endanger his leadership or chan ces for reelection should the eco nomic situation grow worse any thing might happen They point to the following as sign posts The incessant hammering of the administration by Huey Long The new insurgent movement in the house promoted by progressives from the northwest Dissatisfaction among progres sives in the senate over the contest to unseat Bronson Cutting of New Mexico which they believe has ad ministration support McCarlSwanson Feud President Roosevelts decision to support Secretary Swanson of the navy in his squabble with Comp troller General McCarl over travel ing expenses of dependents of naval officers ordered home for retire ment is the most recent cause of discord McCarl is a protege of Senator Norm of Nebraska leader of the progressives in the senate Norris already has come to bat for McCarl and is prepared to go even further for him The amount of money in volved in the SwansonMcCarl feud is insignificant but Norris and other progressives contend the comptroller general is an agent of congress whose function it is to check on the expenditures of the executive branches of the govern ment They fear a breakdown of the whole accounting system if McCarl is not sustained These are instances that congress is becoming restless and is not so unitedly behind the administration as in the last session It is in such an atmosphere talk of a third party usually flourishes Republicans Watching The republicans have assumed an attitude of watchful waiting They are doing everything they can to hinder the administration without being openly charged of obstruction tactics G O P leaders admit privately their strategy is to lie low and wait for a break Continued assaults on the administration by the radicals such as Long and failure or recov policies may in their estima tion lead to a threecornered con test similar to that in 1912 with the democrats on the losing end this time There have been rumors impos sible of verification that the Louisi ana kingfish and Governor Olson farmerlabor chief executive of Min nesota have been discussing the third party idea Gossip is to the effect these two
