COURIER NEWS He Wonts to Know Capital Chaff and Chit-Chat BY PETEH KUSON Courier News-Washington Currcs|iGiidcnl Clnrc BouUie Luce has just set a record for what is probably the shortest speech ever delivered by any congressman or woman. He- questing unanimous consent lo address the House for 10 seconds, and there being no objection, the gentlewoman from Connecticut let go with this one: "Mr. Speaker, clear everything wilh Sidney." Then she sat down. Democratic party chiefs are praymi: that the President will sail Into Governor Dewey and let him have it good when the fourth term candidate mukcs his two political speeches from'Washington on Sept M and ocl. 5. The fact Is (hat Dewey's aggressive sniping is beginning lo lake eflecl and it is worrying Dcmocrals no end. Democratic Chairman Hnmicgtm, Secretary Ickcs, Majority Leader McCormack and other bigwigs have tried their hands at answering Dewey's charges, claiming they are based on misinformation, Imlf-triilhs or deliberate untruths, lint denials never get as much altention as accusations. Also, Uic wilder the accusations, the more some people like lo believe them. Dewey, in other words, has taken Ihe offensive, which Is a good <;id<; io bu on in any political campaign. "Offensive," says one very Irritated Democrat, "is right!" THE DKJIOCRATS HOPE HE WON'T WAIT TOO LONG In Ihe 1340 campaign against Winkle, Roosevelt tried to adopt the I iralicy of not making many speeches' (car to pieces," says tlie chairman The tearing to pieces will be done when Ihe board begins deliberations Oct. 9 on modifying ihe Llllle Steel formula. • » * COY is TIII-: woiti) I-OH Till: l.ABOlt SKCUKTAKY Hardest government official to smoke out is Secretary of Labor I-'rniicos Perkins. Not more limn u reporters ever go lo her press conferences, which are usually hold only once a mouth to hand out some canned statement prepared by the Bureau of Labor Statistics. At the most recent of these seiincejs, reporters thought they had a chance to get Panny on record. War I-iibor Hoard panel reports on the Inljor demands to break the Little Steel formula had jusl been miide public. What did the Secrelury of Labor Ihlnk about them? She hadn't finished readinu them. Did she think the Little Steel formula should be revised upwards? We would have to be very cautious.

Davis has a new and simple .explanation for the period of re- conversion -just ahead. "What we have to do," he says, "is to turn our guns Into butter and then eat Die butter." • • W Davis, In spite ol the terrific punishment, he has had to take in one of the most thankless jobs in Washington, still is able to keep his sense of humor. He talks about his 12- mcmber board of industry, labor and public representatives as "the 12 prinia donnas," and so explains why it may take them longer than a week to. make, up,their minds on what to do about the labor demands to break the Little Steel formula.
