" Court Is Likely to Dictate Congress' Course ^Uncertainty Will Prevail ' Until AAA; TVA and Guffey Decisions f lN SESSION FRIDAY 94 Senators and 432 Representatives Gathering in Washington ,- By ALEXANDER R. GEORGGE Associated Press Correspondent perennial big show on Capitol Hill , will open'at noon,'Friday. January-3, ^with mystery shrouxlintf the . prosper-. $tivc performance by a cast of 94 scn- ^ators and 432 representatives. Tlie senate seats formerly occupied f,by HucyLong, the master showman, , and • Senator Schall, another '"new 'deal".fob, will be vacant as will the ^seats of.Uiree representatives. To a greater'extent'than any national legislature within the memory of observers here nnd perhaps in con- f«> I ask that question because there arc certain general policies of the national administration that this newspaper lias been silent on—and • silence, with a newspaper, is commonly considered to mean agreement. But the fact is, most of us find fault with the administration not on principle but on the methods by which those principles are put in force. Here lately, it is true, there are evidences of a revolt against the administration on principle also. But I disagree with these critics. . And just as I was about to write a New Year's summary of national events I found one already written to my liking. It is crisp, truthful, nonpartisan. You who imagine at times that the present administration is departing suddenly and violently from ancient American precepts would do well to read this article. It is by William Feather, editor of the Imperial Type Metal magazine, a non-partisan trade journal .wbi.ch, for all its postagc- Stamp size, 1 rate one of the best in America. . X.X.X . Mr. Feather writes: 'At the time when this depression become serious there was no group that was willing to go the whole way to the 'right.' If deflation had been allowed to take its natural course, a dozen big railroads would probably have gone into receivership, hundreds of additional banks would have linled, and many insurance companies, wauld._ be in trouble, j-ess"will convontr'for'Its^tecorVdT session with widespread uncertainly as to what its major mission will prove to-be. ,i Not until the verdicts of the U. S. supreme court on measures touching the economic interests of millions of American citizens have been handed down can a legislative "must" program be framed. AAA Decision Due Although President Roosevelt, who has.promised"a decreasing deficit, can map for the congress a budgetary blueprint or suggest revisions in existing laws here and there, the legislative schedule to deal with the embattled AAA and other prime elements of the "new deal" must await the action of the high court. The momentous decision on the val- ^idlty of AAA, involving processing itaxcs which provide .hundreds of tnil- Illons of dollars to finance crop con- rol,-rriay be returned soon after the ourt reconvenes on January G follow- P ™ g its 'abbreviated Christmas recess, lould-the court find A'AA unconsti- Utional, congress would be plunged , mmediately into a struggle to evolve | hew farm relief program. gf Decisions affecting the validity of Iffthe public utility, the Tennessee Val- ''Icy Authority und the Guffey eoul r control measures also are expected this Lwinter. The social security law and jhu wagncr labor disputes act possibly ay be passed upon by (he court bc- pre congress adjourns. Should any : these be declared invalid, efforts be made to re-enact them in con- Jtutionnl form.

Tlie government keeps its hands off everything. The fit survive and the unfit go down. "Now (hat the government, by advancing billions of dollars of cash and credit to support lame situations, has prevented the chaos that appeared to threaten everyone, the 'right' side is becoming increasingly articulate and is saying that none of the government- aid measures were necessary. ''By instinct and reason I lean to the 'right.' I wish that the government would attend to government and let business attend to business. But the day when that was possible seems to have gone forever. The Reconstruction Finance Corporation, conceived and organized by a conservative administration, ended all hope that natural law was to be allowed to prevail. Tlie RFC made inevitable the creation of dozens of other government-aid organizations. "Now we are told that we must make a choice between permanent government-aid, which is parasitism, and self-help, which is individual freedom. "I prefer scli-help as a way of living nnd doing business, but unless the full implications of the self-help doctrine are accepted, I do not sec how we can return to that system. For example, self- help and a protective tariff lire at opposite ends of the pole. Those who advocate the 'right' must be consistent. They can't have their cake and eat it." Compromise Bonus Bill Is Foreseen President Parries Questions, However, at Press Conference WASHINGTON—(/P)—A house conference between Speaker Byrns and Representative Palman, house bonus bloc lender, ended, Tusday with no new suggestions for a compromise on Hi ticklish cash bonus issue. Fa'tman told reporters he had nothing to say. WASHINGTON—(/P)-Scntiraent for concessions intended to melt some of the administration's opposition to immediate payment of the bonus strengthened Monday with "compromise' 1 talk from a key man in the perennial battle. Author .of a bill that would pay tlie bonus through .the inflationary method of issuing $2,000,000,000 in new currency, Representative Patman, Democrat, Texas, returned to the capital to announce that he would "consider a compromise on the method of payment." That has been one of the bitterly contested points in the annual congressional bonus struggle. Talk of a possible compromise that might escape a presidential veto was heightened when President Roosevelt parried all questions nbout the bonus at his late afternoon press conference. He left room for an implication that the administration's mind was not closed on the question. Asked if he had changed his attitude toward the Palman bill since he vetoed it last spring. Mr. Roosevelt turned the query aside by asking if there was such [i bill. When assured there was, the president suggested the best policy would lie to wait and see what kind of bonus legislation is put forward. Tlie Palman bill, which Mr. Roosevelt, vetoed, is due to be taken up in the house on January 13, because of a petition signer! by a majority of the members at the close of the last president's veto last spring, and only by a narrow margin was he upheld in the Semite.

Legislative Hardies After a bill has been introduced— say in the house of representatives— it begins a journey beset by some twenty or more possible hurdles any one of which may prevent it becoming law. First the bill is referved by the Speaker to a standing or select committee where it is given a number and ordered to be printed. Then the committee may report the bill out for a place on the house calendar. , • The house as a "committee of the whole" debates the bill, has it read a sucond time, then engrosses it, reads it a third time and votes on its The fishermen knocked him on the The RCA lcs>ts are la be predicated | head with a hatchet, took him home upon the research work in which Dr. ! and .sold him to the l»cal butcher for Vladimir Zwu'.vkin and hi.s cathode'a good .sum. 1 niy tubes are the center.
