Washington Merry-Go-Round By DREW PEARSON (Continued from Page 8) (39 lines); Rep. William Stigler of ?^ h ! m o a (35 iiaes) > and Kep. Adolph Sabath. of Illinois, dean of the House (34 lines). , Freshman O'Conor is not as realistic as GOP Senator Bill Lang. er ot North Dakota, who lists among Ms various attainments that .he once;went to jail. Lang- era biographical sketch in the Congressional Directory states that he is the "only person ever to be arrested, in au English- 5 peaking country for filing an affidavit of prejudice against a judge." O'Conor's self-composed biog- You Will SAVE MONEY .By having your home financed thru the Home Builders Savings & Loan Association 128 W. WMh. St. 'raphy contains such nelf-effaclnr I gems as: "... Youngest State's attorney ever to be elected in Baltimore City....Reelected (State's attorney) by toe largest majority ever received by a candidate for public office in Baltimore City Elected attorney general (of Maryand 'in 1934, also by a record- breaking majority " But the 'clincher in O'Conor's self-penned opus concerns the various "honors" showered on him while-a member of the National Governors' Conference when the Senator modestly recalls that his "patriotic and faithful service which has been of such benefit to he Governors of all the States and to the Nation" won him a'resolu- tion of appreciation from the Governors of various States, v Note — ShortestV Senate^ biography m the Directory is that of California's Sheridan Downey- less than five lines. Seven House members go too: far and appear afraid to tell,.their constituents anything about themselves. Those who ^confine their biographical sketches to .one line, stating their name, party .and hoirie -town are- Republicans Fred -Crawford of Michigan, George. MacKinnon of Minnesota and Dewey Short of Missouri, and Democrats Stephen Pace of Georgia.
