Crossing Bridges Senator H. Styles Bridges of New vd'ninushire, another Republican, got jwimself laughed at by protesting President Garner's failure to appoint him to the joint TVA investigating committee. Bridges had been one of TVA'.s most savage critics and it was informally agreed that conspicuous attackers or friends of TVA should be left off the committee. Thus Chnirman Andrew J. May of the House Military Affairs CommiUtee, perhaps the most outspoken enemy of TVA in the House, was omitted from the list. And so were such ardent partisans of TVA as Senator George W. Morris of Nebraska and Congressman Maury Maverick of Texas. Last year "Styles" was being dis- j crctely groomed, promoted and publicized by certain persons as a presidential possibility.

Osceola Society — Personal cause of the laughter which ensued "*hcn Senator Tom Connally of Texas sought to sum up the Bridges |'s\,'nalion by saying: "Why does he not approach tills I question -with an open mind, in- steatl of an open mouth?" About This Confusion One of the surviving New Deal brain trusters, who has been brain- trusting and functioning in various important capacities almost since the beginning of the Rooosevelt administration, was quite frank the other night when taxed with the fact that there still seemed to be an enormous amount of confusion within the administration ranks.
