Battle May Go to Dark Horse tt 1 I 4 By CHARLES P STEWART ASHINGTON May l Rivalry between G O P candi dates for speaker of the house of representatives is generating a sur prising amount of ill feeling considering how it is that the repub licans will be able to put a presiding officer of their politics in the chair at all when the sev entysecond con gress meets Following Speaker Longworths death the general impression wag that Col John Q Tilsons title to succeed him would very readily be recognized provided the colonel cared for the honor It seems that uie does Had the colonel waived his claim Chairman Bertrand H Snell of the rules committee unquestionably would have been entitloI to consider himself logically next in line but the colonel having chosen not to waive it it evidently has come as asore shock to himrto have Chair man Snell proclaim his candidacy anyway THERE is no formal reg V ulation on the subject the speaker necssarily Is the majority party boss in the representatives chamber he would not have the votes to make him speaker other wise Equally by common consent the majoritys floor leader always has been regarded qs the speakers right the rules

Congress WASHINGTON May 1 resentative Wood today had come to the defense of the execu tive branch in arguments over re sponsibility for increasing federal expenditures The chairman of the last house appropriations committee laid the blame to congress and to the de mands of special groups He pre sented this view in answer to a statement by Senator Borah that an expensive bureaucracy was being established in the govern ment Borah held a large part of the censure for creation of an ex travagant form of government should be attributed to the execu tive branch Wood replied that the largest part of the Increase lies at the door of new legislation passed by congress authorizing or com pelling such expenditure in con siderable degree in opposition to the executive Has Largo Responsibility If the Idaho republican senator will examine authorization bills position of the executive Wood asserted he will find that con gress has an infinitely larger re sponsibility for increased expendi tures than he now believes After the bills are passed au thorizing government expenditure the Indiana representative added the executive can do nothing but estimate the additional expendi tures involved and budget the ex penditures called for by authoriza tion bills and the vice of this new legislation and increased authoriza tion bills lies in the electorate and special groups in the country in their demandsupon congress Example Is Given Wood scanned Borahs record to cite illustrations which he said would show the senator had sup ported the president against legis lation to increase expenses The Idahoans vote to sustain President Hoovers veto of the new bonus law Wood said was an example Then he added If we are to search for respon sibility for increases in governmenl expenditure we must not neglect the war which is responsible for fully 40 per cent of the increase and on the other hand we must not deny the responsibility of congress in yielding to the clamor of groups thruoijt the country for special leg islation in a large part of which congress has always exceeded the recommendations of the executive AUNT HET By Robert Quillen It didnt surprise me When a
