FnroAT, APRIL s, BT/yTHEVILLR (AUK.) COURIER NEWS THE NATION TODAY President of Senate Discovers That Roll Calls Do Not Always Reflect What His Eyes Can See tfei By .lumps MarH*w *^ WASHINGTON, April 8. »AP>—H must be music. Vice President Barkley looks out over the Scnntc. Nol enough senators there. He orders the bells rung, All over the capitol Senate bells ring. Senators come skating in Umniuh the swinging doors and sit down Barkley tells the clerk to c;i!l the roll. There, are 35 members of the Semite but when the clerk gels Ihrcnifih hp says only 49 of'them are present. Harkley announces there nre senators present. Then the magic starts. The next day the Congressional Record come.s out and says that when the roll was called 89 sm- alms were present. And it fi\iote,s Bfickley as sayinp 89 were present. Tin's burns Bnrklcy up. He knows what lie said. He snki only 49 were nt. So he (five* the Senate a large piece of his mind, dead .serious he says: ''The record shows thai 89 senators answered to their names, and that the chair fmeaniuR Barkley) had .said that 89 senators had answered to (heir mimes. "That \vns not true. The chair did not pay there were fl9 senators who ansxveml to ihe names bfraiise it was not true, and the rhair authorized nobody to rhanpe the record In make the chnir say .^lere were 39 senators present when I 2^ere were only 49 senators present.' How come? A senator can't divide himself in half like a ham sandwich and be two places at one time*. If a senator I* not in the senate at roll call, he must be some place else. But If he's some place else. how can the record say he's In the Senate? Andrnt Practice Abused Easy. He can come in later and pet .somebody like the clerk to mark him down as present when ne wasn't present. And that's what must have happened because Hartley goes on and tells the Senate: "The chair that the hnb- it has grown up of placing the names of senators on the roll call and the clerks at the. desk tell the chair that sometimes the sheet is kept at the two or three hours after roll call In order that senators who corns In later may have their names recorded." But no more, Bnrkley says—unless a senator is someplace on senate business, like a committee meet- M Then he Is really busy for the Senate, Barkley says, and when the hells ring for R roll call he can phone In and say "mark me present" und it's okay. But no more of this stuff of getting yourself marked "here" when you're off some place or just gel in late for work, says Barkley But why does it mean so much to a senator to get himself market "present?" Because—• If any of the folks hack home are checking up on him, they can read the record and see whether he's on the Job.
