Fires painted a weird nigh, .scene along sieeav/el creek, at tlie southwestern comer of the Fmicl concession, in the wake of the Chinese retreat from Shanghai while Japanese artillery accelerated the Chinese retreat. Flamlnf bridges and barges threatened to set fire to nearby buildings. French troops were fu- Hously digging trenches In anticipation of pressure against the concession. Chinese .troops, definitely threatened with Isolation faced each other across (he creek nonchalantly smoking cigarettes as they stood by their block houses Japanese troops, driving down from Soocliow creek, won control of the western side of (he cltv They already controlled it on the north and east sides and the Chinese were believed to be withdrawing rapidly from their remaining strongholds in N.-mtao and Pootung on the south side To remain would be to Invite dls- nsler. Cracking, after days of resistance, which astonished foreign military experts, the Chinese began a general withdrawal of the city's west, side this morning-. As they did so the Japanese ferried tanks across Soochow creek and sent, them ahead of the infantry on a drive that took the Japan- sontlnvest of e.se line to the Shanghai proper. Foreign military experts said ih.it nn\ ess (|, e Chinese could hold soon their retreat might Iw- conie a rout.

IUT€LL YOU BY • BOB BURNS _ The oilier day I wrote what I thought was a pretty clever article. I went on to say that the farmers' wives were much more fortunate than their city.sisters because they could work right along side their husbands In the farm work and be a part of the business while the business man's wife lias'ta sit In Ihe background and can't take part in her husband's business. That a/t«rnoon I paid a visit to a Jrlend of mine who is the president of a big corporation, while I was there, his business manager came In and said "I'd like to use your telephone because my wife told me to ask you for a raise today and she didn't tell me how much," The president said "Well you go ahead and ask her and then I'll call my wife and see if she'll let m e give it to you," He said Ihe reason mining pays in his native land Is because of Ihe low labor cosl. Dredges [ire extensively employed, hts own company operating seven of the big machines, lie said, but vast tracks of land are mined by hand labor, mostly Chinese. This Is tbe first of n series of stoiles by Hodney Dutclier on tils program anj iirobutililies alifad of the special session of Congress, BY RODNEY DUTCHEU Courier News Washington Correspondent WASHINGTON, Nov. fl. — The toughest Congress with which President Roosevelt has yet had to dcr.I now reassemble.?. This Is the same Congress which balked the Roosevelt program last spring and summer. II was summoned into a special session opening Nov. 15 to enact the same program- minus that court plan. Predictions as to what this Congress will do and as to the extent to which it will co-operate with, Roosevelt probably are us dangerous as those made last year after the huge' Democratic election victory, when most of us thought P. D. H. could get approximately what he wanted from Capitol Hill. Plenty of stormy wentlicr may be safely forecast, but more legislative results than were had from the last Congress seem fairly certain. The Issue of centralization of power both as to expanded federal control and increased presidential powers, will be almost constantly In the foreground. In the background will be general concern the primaries and elections of 1938, the plottings of conservatives and liberals thinking in lerms of 19!0 and efforts of southern and other Democrats to see that Roosevelt doesn't control the next Democratic na- Jonal convention. Either the domestic business situation or the international situation may lead to developments not now anticipated, The Same Old List The problems before are all familiar. Tlie Congress proposed Stock Prices NEW YORK. Nov. 9 I UP)—The stock market, today made its best rally since October 29 in the lightest turnover in a mouth. Bonds improved except in some uneasy spots. Commodities except wage-hour legislation- has as Its aim the same chief-objective ;0ii- nounced more than four years ago "or NHA. Surplus crop control, tried first n 1933. is second on the list. The regional development pro- losals calls for an extension of the TVA Idea through the nation. Government reorganization, Roosevelt's fourth .special session item, has been talked of and vainly stabbed at for 25 years. Anti-monopoly legislation, if any, will be a new attempt to meet an ancient Issue. They're nil old, but they're also all hotly controversial. Pew will be surprised If no important legislation Is passed be- r ore Christmas. The special session and the regular session be- imilng in January almost ini- medUitely afterward may be considered as a whole.' j Diverse and Tu-o-edged Tile faclors to be weighed in Anybody who knows noses knows the Identity ol Hie two shown in his photo study.

Absence of tlie court which gummed everything \ip the first session, is one. The coalition which fought Roosevelt on the court will not get together again —at least not without conspicuous absentees. On the other hand, that fight left scars. The President called the special session with an obvious burst of self-confidence, based- on his reception during his western tour and conviction that the people wer still strong for him. Yet the point is made that enthusiasm for Roosevelt doesn't mean effective popular support on specific Issues and there seems .no enthusiastic mass furore over any item on his current program. Congress meets at what may be either side of the half-way point in a business slump and theoretically this should permit the President more scope in solving economic problems. But there will also be plenty of attack and the New Deal's enemies in Congress will blame its policies for a "new depression." Business Lobbies Busy Some of the most effective Democratic opponents of the court plan often will be with tlie President in ttie next few months, and others will display n passion for regularity. Senator Wheeler of Montana, has said he expects to support Roosevelt on labor, farm and other "progressive" issues. O'Mahoney of Wyoming will demonstrate his friendship. Connally of Texas, and other anti-court men, will be reasonably regular. But such conservative Democrats as Cppeland of New York, Byrd and Glass of Virginia. Bailey of North Carolina,' Tydtngs of Maryland, Burke of Nebraska, Smith of South Carolina, George of Georgia .and Van Nuys of Indiana, ae well as a number of southern committee chairmen, will often be Dec 553-8 58 1-2 55 3-8 56'l-8 fo »»d with Hie opposition.
