Norris May Quit Senate Rumor in Nebraska He May Run for Governor By HERBERT PLUMMER WASHINGTON Oct 10 From Nebraska cornea a hint that Senator George Norrla once more is flirting with an old and cher ished ambition He refuses to say now one report has it whether he will be out for gover nor in the next election Many of his friends believe that the 72 year old senator long has wished to end his political career in Ne GtoRGE w woaRis braskas guber n a t o r i al chair Nonpartisanship and the substitution of a small sin gle chamber for the two houses of the state legislature are included in his conception an ideal govern ment He wanted to try it in 1931 but circumstances held him in the sen ate His present term will not ex pire until 1937 Nebraskas guber natorial election is next year Norris has seen his fondest wish development of Muscle Shoals come true His long fight to eliminate lame duck sessions of congress has ben completed successfully Has he sufficient faith that the new deal actually is here to quit Washington and begin new work at home Concumcrs Psychology There is a lot being said around Washington these days of the ef fort to build up what is called a consumers psychology What it is and the reason seems to be this Changes in the consumers food dollar came in general only with the depression Recovery adminis tration officials point out that for the past three ye ars the spread b e f afraer the consumer iprppprtion to thp price reduction farmers have taken1 for their pro ducts They suffered the greatest deflation Next to come down were consum ers prices The drop in retail prices however was not as great propor tionately as the drop in farm prices This meant that the processors and distributors portion of the con sumers dollar often was relatively greater during the depression than it was during the years we are apt to look back upon as prosperous Along Two Fronts The drive is being aimed at both farmers and consumers Both are being urged to watch what happens to these price mar gins during the next few months Since they failed to contract as much as farm and retail prices in the depression it is pointed out they should not be expected to in crease rt anything like the rate at which farm prices advance unless the workers in these food industries get greatly increased wages The idea of a consumers psy chology can be built up or ex pressed another way if the people of the country can be made con sumer conscious half the battle will be won Once conusmers are aroused re covery officials believe corrective steps naturally will follow Receivers of
