Several Legislators Find Complain Is Not Made in Proper Spiril I!V RODNEY IIUTCHEIt. Washington Corrcsiiomlrnt WASHINGTON,- March :10.—Several members of Congress are feeling a bit silly since tlie NllA investigation began to warm up. They are in that, group which once was hollering about the oppression or the "small business man" by codes. Some of the "small business men" have been on exhibit and they looked neither small nor oppressed. There must be some honest little fellows who have been hurl by NRA. Plenty of monopolistic practices were legalized under the General Johnson regime. The complaint of most of them is that codes haven't been adequately enforced—which left those complying at a disadvantage. But (lie "little fellows" whose cause such folks a.s Senator Kltuj of Utah. Senator Nye of North Dakota, mid the ineffable Con- iresswomnn Virginia Jcnckcs of Indiana espoused turned out to bu gents who objected to enforcement, rather than non-enforcement, to minimum wngcs and collective bargaining.

Their congressional supporters lapsed inlo silence a.s the facts began to come out. NRA has been faring much better than it deserved.
