Deadlock Possible in Next Congress Republicans, Independent Democrats, to Halt Leftist March By the Associated Press Republicans, flushed by their party's victories, appeared Thursday night to be getting ready to serve a virtual ulti'm'atum on President Roosevelt in some such words as these; "Veer to the Right, or face two years of stalemate in Congress!" They expressed confidence that, combined with Democrats critical of many Roosevelt policies, they could block the president if he insisted on following a "Leftward" course. On the other hand, many New Dealers contended that the election was not a repudiation of President Roosevelt's "liberal policies" Secretary of the Interior Ickes spoke of the possibility of Mr. Roosevelt's being drafted for a third term drive in the interests of continuing the New Deal. Returns from Tuesday's balloting were all but complete. They showed that 81 Republican votes had been added to that party's roster in the house and eight in the senate. One house election remained in doubt. A Republican in congress said thai if the president should insist upon following an unchanged course, he woulci be beaten badly. At the same time should the Republicans seek to undo major New Deal legislation already enacted, the possibility of a presidential veto and the necessity of mustering a two-thirds majority against Mi' Roosevelt in both houses faced thi conservative forces. He thought the "smart tiling" for UK president to do would be to "ease ovci to the Right and say 'Let's have ai era of good feeling for two years. Wi can't fight it out until 1940, so let' be friendly in the meanwhile.' " Hi added that he doubted whether tha would satisfy the president's advisors Asked whether he thought the Re publicans would meet the presiden halfway in such a gesture, he replie -@ Which shows the pre-war innocence f a country which is now being forced nto a prospective military budget of 1,300,000,000 for 1940. Of course the an- lual half-billion for veterans, and the innual millions for interest on the low-refunded war loans, come extra. The regular U. S. Army of June, 1914 las 90,000 officers men, and about 50,- lOO of them available for a striking orce. The navy had 50,000. The War Department that year cost ?168,000,000, he navy ?140,233,000. Today the regular army has 165,000. Instead of the 110,000 members of oosely-organized state militias, there re 200,000 well-trained and equipped national guardsmen, for war purposes also a federal force. Plans are under ,vay for an enlisted reserve of 75,000 and there are today about 90,000 reserve officers, each ready at a mo- nent's notice to step into his appointed place in the war machine.

Everybody's War Complete re-arming and modem- zation of the army is under way, each nfantryman to carry the Garand semiautomatic rifle (100 shots a minute) instead of the 1903 Springfield (10 shots a minute). Tanks, anti-tank guns, and diiti -aircraft batteries are being rushed nto production, as the United States ,ias few of any of types. Air defense enthusiasts are demanding an air force three and four times the present one, which includes something over 3000 army and navy planes. They argue that recent European developments show that the U. S. Air Force is behind the times technically and negligible in size. The World war made certain that anmht-r war will be a "total war." That is. every person, every resource, every energy, every thought, must be concentrated on winning. Everything becomes u part of the war machine, no opposition, no debate, no private ends, no withholding, can be tolerated. That is war today, and scarcely person doubts it. Measures already introduced in the U. S. Congress would give the President practically die- tutorial power if war comes. Yet little objection is heard, for since the World war, that is what war means.

(The additional votes indicated that Amendments 26 (poll tax elimination) and 28 (refunding) were defeated over- whebningly and beyond doubt. Industrial Program FORT WORTH, Texas-W-Governor-Elect W.

WASHINGTON — (ff) — President ; Roosevelt said Friday that he soon would announce a number of appointments, probably within a week. Asked at a press conference whether Governor Frank Murphy of Michigan, defeated Tuesday for re-election, was included on the list of new appointments, Roosevelt answered by saying that nobody was no the list yet, The calm of the election aftermath brought renewed speculation that the chief execiHive first was'contemplating",: a cabinet shake-up. . "' .There has been recurrent rumors that two or more members might resign and be transferred to other posts. The speculation was based partly on he fact that presidents sometime make mid-term changes of their group_ of ifficial advisers. < Among those mentioned as possibly nvolved /were Secretaries Swanson'of he Navy; Woodring.ofWar; Roper, of Commerce; and'PosthMster JimJEarJey., '«; *^*»j&%8jfigjjfa -V»?5w«* Roosevent said that he did not be- ieve the results of last Tuesday's^elections constituted any threat for the' continuation of liberal government At a press conference, Mr. Roosevelt declared he thought the election returns were all right. At the same time he predicted he would not encounter what one of his questioners called "coalition opposition"—presumably combining republican and anti-New Deal democrats Horse Stolen, He Rides Auto OLIVE, Calif.-{/P)-They finally got Joe Fuentez into an automoble, but, they had to steal his horse and buggy to do it. Fuentez, who always has refused to ride in gasoline vehicles, reported his horse and buggy stolen and police soon located them in Anaheim. They told Fuentez he'd have to go there to claim liis property, so the horse'enthusiast at last accepted a ride in an auto. They Got the Calf Home Finally, But It Arrived in Sections By WINNIE SPARKS There are more ways of getting a bought calf home than by driving him or trucking him home, according to Milam Green, of Ozan. On a recent afternoon Green went to a negro cabin a few miles east of Ozan to get a calf which he had bought fro mthe negro. When he had driven the calf only a short distance, it refused to go another step. No persuasion, gentle or brutal, could make it move forward. Green .thoroughly disgusted with his purchase, offered to sell it on the spot to any buyer who would have it for the price he paid for it, but no one seemed to want to buy the stubborn calf. It was a long walk to town, and Green had no truck of his own, but he had some friends. So, he barbecued the calf on the spot from which it refused to move, and gave a barbecue supper for a group of his friends and relatives, Thus, the calf was safely conveyed home, not to one home but several homes.
