Appointment of an $8,000-a- year executive assistant for cacti member of Congress, Rayburn felt this would partially remove a Con- pressman ' from' contact AvKh 'his 'constituents: Several other leaders agreed. 2. Each cjmmlttce to hold monthly tjessions at which any member could ask debate on a bill previously pigeonholed by .the .Committee Chairman, Rayburn vetoed -this, but • many Congressmen disagree with him. They complain that such dictatorial Committee Chairmen as May of Kentucky can bottle up Important legislation indefiniately, giving other Congressmen no chance to pry it loose. Had this provision for free commiuoi! debate been operating-, some of -the Erie Banin scandals mjlf.nt not have occurred under other Con- pressmen's noses. ,Ioc Martin's Veto ;-t"~No more special Investigating committees. This 'was where Republican leader Joe Martin exercised his veto, with Rayburn back- irig him up. Martin felt that Hpe- cial Investigating- committees are frequently necessary. •I. The proposed legislative-executive council; 'also the majority- minority policy committeca. The Reorganization Bill provides that the Democrats shall set up a policy committee and receive $30,000 annually to pay Cor research • experts to help formulate party policy. It also provides the siame policy committee and same $30,000 for the Republicans. But Speaker Rayburn was vig-i orously opposed. So was his assistant, John McCormack of Massachusetts. "I don't want any debating societies around nic," protested Sam. "I've got enough to do without ar- Ruing everything with six other men." So he wielded the veto, Note — Rayburn, however, left most of the bill Intact and it will go a long way toward making Congress more efficient.

HEALTH ALL FOR INFANTILE PARALYSIS During the late summer, parents are apt to think, with fear In their hearte, of Infantile paralysis or us It la often called, polio. Epi- demics'of the disease are most apt to break out from June to September. In this -country, the disease .reaches, its peak in the lat- ier month.' ' ''•'Infintile-' paralysis Is feared, not on)y" ; u'ccauBe of ;the deaths It caus- es'—inany. 1 other diseases take more lives—but because It so frequently leaves Its victims crippled for life and"be'cause little Is known about thc.ylrui} .which causes the disease. -Therefore, few • preventive men-s- Feit-can be taken against it; Infantile paralysis :.s caused by a virus BO small it cannot be seen through -th"e most powerful micro- Bcope. An yet no means of prevention or cure has been discovered. There have, however, been advances ' in treatment. This, with the creation • 'of- additional facilities for aiding the victim'.s recovery, has done much to allay fear of the disease. A'lthough its name would seem to -indicate that infantile paralysis strikes only young children, thin is by no means true. It may attack Older age groups, even adults, and may cripple them a8 well V 8 younfir children. - Panic never cured a «««« «£ provcnted Its spread.

IH rcwly to assist communities where outbreakH occur and to help individuals who get the disease. The Foundation emphasi7.cn that, nllhouRh there Is no known cure for polio, quick action may prevent crippling and urges that medical advice be sought immediately ii polio la 'suspected. The first symptoms "re often a headache, unexplained fever, a cold or an upsal stomach. If any of these .symptoms appear, a doctor Bhould be called. People who arc very tired are more apt lo i?et the disease than those who get sufllclont rest. Chills mny v/i.-nlcen riitil.stiincu to the di.s- ,>iisu—so do not stay in cold Waterloo long.
