A Disconcerting Shock The great political question ol the hour is whether Roosevelt will fight to regain the control of Congress, which a combination of conservative southern Democrat; and northern Republicans have v/resl- ed away from liiir. and, if so, whether he can win. For the time fc«''ig one can only be sure that iff. Roosevelt has received a dls- canrntlng shon''. The President will he urged by ;cme advisers un,l congressional supporters to vetj any farm legislation which Congress passes, and to insist tliaa lh?re be no more huge appropriatioai 1m fanners, until representatives of the Cot-' ton South and the grain belt have' shown themselvp.i willing to aid the poorest paid groups in Industry.

The positions of certain labor leaders were falsified in ih° course of this lobbying. Members favorable to the original plan for a five-man board administration estimate that somewhere between 5 and 20 southern members deserted the bill bcause of distrust for Miss Perkins, and the reeling that a board at least would atav southern representation.
