Be So Frightened? one wonders—is our business machinery so delicate, are our business leaders so nervous, llml the bare thouijlil of the people's representatives convening ut Washington to carry out tilth' constitutional functions can disturb things and make prosperity impossible? If so, we arc in a jam than our bitterest pessimists have supposed. All of this is not to say thul a special session is necessary. That is for the coming months to decide- What we are trying to gel at is the fact that it is foolish to look on this possible special session as a calamity. [cr mechanical devices and girls prefer dolls and all of the pava- It is a little bit hard to work up any sympathy for those people who are all hot and bothered by the horrid thought that we may hnvts an extra session of Congress next spring. This possibility— which, it must be admitted, looms rather large on the lioraoii— is described by some people as a veritable catastrophe, a thing to be avoided at all costs- To read some editorials, or to listen to certain statements, one would imagine that an extra session of Congress is a calamity comparable to Hood, pestilence or war- Is it, really, quite that- bad? Let's examine it for a minute. A few weeks ago we had a nationwide election- At this election a great many men wer<\ voted out of Congress, and n great many new men were votod in- Under the law, these new men will not Hake their scats until December of 1031— unless there should be a special session next spring- Now that election meant something. Interpretations differ, of course, but no one can deny that a certain amount of , public dissntis faction with tho record of the existing Congress lay back of the huge overturn that the election brought. The people at large didn't like many of the things the present Congress did; so they voted many congressmen out of the jobs and elected substitutes. That being so, it is only reasonable to suppose that the voters would at least be willing to sec these new congressmen take office comparatively i teoofu ;~~~ It is argued that we have a ticklish business depression on our bands now and that nn extra session, for that reason, should be avoided. But might not that be all the more reason for wanting to see this new Congress begin functioning? The old Congress certainly faile.'l to give us any help. It could not even pass measures Unit were presented to it for the relief of unemployment. Is it, not at least reasonable to hope that the new Congress, elected because of the discontent the depression has brought, might do better? It is also argued that an extra session would worry business and so postpone recovery from the depression. The Lou/s Delay l(j came ua (something of a surprise the other day to read that the government had lilcd, in the District of Columbia court of appeals, a brief Braking to uphold the conviction of Albert H. Fall, who is still trying to escape the year's imprisonment given him for taking a ?100,000 bribe from K. \>. Doheny. Offhand, one would have swpsiosort that that case bad been soUled long ago. But since it has mil the whole business is worth looking iuli—iuit because of any burning desire to sec Fall behind the bars, but because the case illustrates so perfectly the Jc-lays of American criminal law. The offense complained of was first aired in the Senate more than six years ago. During all of the time since then it has dragged along through one court'after another. In six years time our legal machinery has not yet been able to decide finally whether Fall is innocent or guilty. What a commentary on the snail-like pace that justice'has taken in twentieth century America! H the unemployed have no income, they me at least being paid attention.
