Great Mass of Data Rivals That of Wickersham By HERBERT FLUMMEK ASHINGTON May 26 average persons reaction to the now famous Dar row report on NRA p r o b a bly was one of con siderable bewild erment Not since the WicJcersham com mission made its report during the Hoover adminis tration fi a s Washington seen anything compar able to the mass of data submitted in this instance It is estimated the various analyses conclusions and whatnot contained in the report required upwards of 150000 words The list of correspondence gives an idea of just how extensive the report is The report of the board itself re quired 155 pages The replies of General NRAs General Counsel Richberg and the deputy administrators took 155 pages There were five pages in the Dar row supplementary report six pages in the Sinclair minority report and one page for Johnsons comment on the Darrow supplementary report Nye and Borah Opinion is divided as to what will be the outcome of the report The Darrow board was set up as a kind of compromise by the ad ministration when Senator Borah of Idaho and Senator Nye ofNorth Dakota started NRA in the senate several months ago Nye is given most of the credit for the personnel of the board He is understood to have submitted to the president the list of names from which the selections were madeV Tiie chief criticism made by Nye and Borahwas thatthe codes as administered were driving the small businessman to the wall The Dar row report concurred heartily in that view It remains to be seen whether im portant political repercussions will follow publication and discussion of the report For the present at least everyone seems to have assumed an air of watchful waiting Sketchy Survey Antibig business1 members of congress probably will seize on it as an important campaign docu ment but supporters of the admin istration have an answer already prepared They may contend that the Dar row report was framed by a group named largely lay critics of the ad ministration which made only a hasty sketchy survey of the situa tion In the end the whole the Wickersham will find its place in the archives of the legislative and executive branch es of the government where it will
